Depression problem #234532

  • Me:

    *is able to hold down a job/go to class*

  • Me:

    I obviously don't have depression, or it's not that bad if I do because I'm able to do all this! I'm just a whiny asshole and I need to suck it up and deal.

  • Me:

    *is unable to attend work or class because of depression*

  • Me:

    I'm just fucking worthless. I should just be able to force myself to go! This isn't me being depressed, this is just me being worthless and lazy and not doing things I know I need to do that everyone else can do just fine.




A family from Hammond, Indiana is suing the Hammond Police department for excessive force after what should’ve been a routine traffic stop turned violent. Lisa Mahone was driving with her boyfriend Jamal Jones and her two children to Stroger Hospital when Hammond police pulled her over for not wearing a seatbelt. Mahone admitted to the violation and asked for a ticket so she could continue on her way to the hospital to visit her dying mother.

Though Mahone was the operator of the vehicle and produced valid identification and proof of insurance, police demanded to see identification from Jones as well. Jones informed the officers he didn’t have ID, as he recently received a ticket. After attempting to reach into the backseat and produce the ticket from a backpack, the officers drew their guns.

Mahone’s 14-year-old son then began recording the encounter with his cell phone and Mahone dialed 911. 

According to Fox Chicago
, an officer told Jones “”I don’t know you and I don’t know what you’re going to do.” Jones told the cops “That’s why I have my windows up. I’m not no harm to you right now. I got my kids in the car and you’re drawing your weapon.”

Police refused to take the ticket from Jones as ID and ordered him out of the vehicle. “Once the kids were scared, I wasn’t gonna get out of the car and leave my kids in the car,” said Jones. “He was being so aggressive.”

While Mahone was relating the story as it happened to the 911 operator, Jones demanded to see a “white shirt,” a commanding officer. The officer on the scene told Jones “Look at my shoulder dumbass. I got bars.” Video shows that after asking Jones another time if he was going to exit the car, an officer then breaks the passenger window, shocks Jones with a taser, then pulls him out of the car.
