I used to take my son here all the time. When he got tired of fishing in the pond, he’d chase squirrels.

"All I did — what I did was — was release the videotape to you, because I had to," Jackson told reporters on Aug. 15 when asked why he released the robbery footage. "I’d been sitting on it, but I — too many people put in a [Freedom of Information Act] request for that thing, and I had to release that tape to you."

Writing for The Blot, Matthew Keys reports that the police department did not receive any specific requests for the videotape.

"A review of open records requests sent to the Ferguson Police Department found that no news organization, reporter or individual specifically sought the release of the surveillance tape before police distributed it on Aug. 15," Keys writes.

Journalist Andrew Perez also said that he has tried to get the documents to show who sent FOIA requests for the recording.

"I requested all requests for the videotape too, and they produced a ton of docs but no requests for the tape," Perez tweeted.

Perez also tweeted that, when asked, Ferguson Police spokesperson Tim Zoll couldn’t think of any specific requests for the tape.

Your daily reminder the Ferguson Police Department participated in a large-scale conspiracy to slander and demonize Michael Brown, while protecting his murderer, fellow officer Darren Wilson. How and why anyone could still be defending these armed thugs is beyond me. #staywoke #farfromover 

I knew there was never a FOIA request, because the media that had put in the request would have immediately validated the chief’s claim to get some form of breaking news value out of him allegedly releasing it before those media outlets did. No media outlets doing so meant no FOIA requests. Now it’s been proven.

Generally I don’t nerd out actively as much here regarding updates to favorite tabletop games, but next week has me pretty stoked.  Paizo is releasing the Advanced Class Guide for their Pathfinder Roleplaying Game tabletop, and it’s got me pretty excited for a number of reasons—

1) New classes— Yep.  Ten new classes, each utilizing a set of skills inspired by the previous core classes, now available to play and expand on character creation of the popular tabletop RPG.  From the charismatic swashbuckler to the zealous warpriest, it’s ten classes (each with their own set of archetype builds) of all new fun with friends.

2) New iconics— One of the things I loved about Pathfinder is how each player class in their game is an iconic character existing in the universe’s continuity.  Each character is fleshed out with their own back story and why they took up the adventurer’s call.  The Advanced Class Guide adds ten new faces into the Pathfinder universe, each ready to carve their own path of destiny.

3) This one is just a personal quirk of mine, but I like the even male:female ratio of the genders of this new batch of iconics coming to the Pathfinder universe.  Especially towards the ladies, who have some well-written back stories that will assuredly put them on the path of strong female characters.  Visually they look spectacular too— none of them seem to hit the stereotypical “fantasy female sexy wardrobe” one would expect.  These ladies come pretty much clad head to toe in full armor, ready for a fight.  It’s beautiful.  c:

The Advanced Class Guide hits shelves next week… so glad I put in my pre-order.  I’m stoked~

You know I am not a fan of ridiculous high fantasy over-sized weapons and armor, but these are just a bit outside the realm of the possible, and the designs are so freakin’ incredible.
