    his life was totally in danger.

    True story; this officer (John Pike) got a settlement of $38,000 because he said he got depressed after pepper spraying these kids. Oh, the depression wasn’t for feeling remorseful for pepper spraying a bunch of college kids peacefully protesting. He got depressed because he said since the media kept playing the video of him pepper spraying peaceful kids without cause, he got threats and didn’t feel safe. He didn’t feel safe. I’m not making that up. This motherfucker collected nearly 40 grand on worker’s comp after assaulting a bunch of college kids.

    I told you guys!

    I didn’t mean to pull the ‘I told you’ card, but it’s right there. These were the exact figures I was reading from in my video. (although the salary part must have been updated since I was reading from their 2012 earnings).

    But this isn’t the first time this has happened. Solar Roadways… was a scam. Received 2 million+

    Kony2012 was a scam. also received millions.

    Are people simply incapable of critical thinking in masses? Do people ignore things if others are falling for something?

    Sure there are individuals who can waggle their finger about it and be like ‘Pffft I knew this would happen’, but did you? or were you just trying to dodge a trend with pessimism. Who actually did their research on this thing? Because it looks like MILLIONS did not.

    I didn’t expect another big scam this close to the last, the solar roadways trend JUST left us.

    I wonder what the next one will be….

    -

    Here’s a link to the article pictured (x)

    are you kidding me

    Wait… the breakdown shows a high salary pay out for administration which is far higher than anyone would have expected, I’m not denying that but 66% of that 73% that’s under question which is in reference to the entire expenditure goes toward, education, patient aid, community services and more fundraising (which is the perpetuation of the charity organization)

    I mean I’m not saying that there’s something that’s really off about the high administrative expenditure or that I understand the entire workings of the charity organization but education patient and community services seem like a use of the funds that is still productive which is what we were shooting for right?

    The reason why the emphasis is on the low research percent is because that’s what will directly correlate to ‘finding a cure’, which is part of how the campaign was marketed. 

    Caring for people suffering with ALS is good. I have no idea what ‘public education’ even means with this kind of charity… but.. okay.

    The problem comes with the high unnecessary spending compared to the research statistic.

    From what I found in my own research before I made my personal video about things is that this charity works like this; you give them money, and they choose how it’s distributed while keeping ‘x’ amount for themselves.

    So what if you want it to go 100% to research? Donate to NEALS instead.

    If you want it to go towards care, donate to a care place.

    But the charity is an unnecessary middle man in the long run that are pretty much milking a disease for what it’s worth.

    Even now, I’m doing a little digging around and found a few articles. Some people in the comments are saying things like ‘so.. charities are a business’ justifying that the employees they get paid considerable amounts, but it’s for the greater good, but they don’t need to be. 

    Understandable analysis and good alternatives.

    I definitely agree on the fact that them keeping 7% is unnecessary and unnecessarily high at that.

    I don’t know man. I guess I just see 93% of good going a long way yanno?

    I wouldn’t say it’s 93% going a long way because ‘fundraising’ (which from experience is the dodgiest statistic of them all) isn’t really anything to do with the ‘long way’. 

    So from that chart, $0.21 gets spent, per $1.00 towards ALS related causes, worse than 2012 which was only $0.16 (which is still quite bad to be honest). And that’s not accounting for how much of whatever they give goes towards said causes.

    They could give to another organisation which has their ‘administration and other fees’ before the rest then gets distributed towards their goals. So what you’re left with is pennies to the dollars donated that people affected with ALS actually see.

    I don’t know. Maybe I’m being pedantic? But when I look, literally on surface level on charity financial sheets, this stuff really bothers me.
