We made it to Friday, kittens! The way this week has been going I’d have lost a bet on that, for sure. But the week is ended, the weekend is hours away, and now we know that Darren Wilson killed Mike Brown. So Anonymous, Gawker, and everyone else can stand down from their keyboards; the police doxed him.
Now, if anyone has the name of the reporter who asked the police chief about Darren Wilson on Wednesday, put it in the comments. That person deserves not to pay for their own drinks for a year at least.
Now to your fully-militarized and haphazardly-trained link roundup!
