This is like, 1/3 of my family, tbh.
Ryo Oyamada, a 24 year old student from Japan, was struck and killed by an NYPD vehicle in a hit & run. Witnesses say the police car had no lights or sirens on and was going over 70 mph. The released footage by NYPD was proven to be heavily altered in a cover-up, showing “lights” on the vehicle, when compared to footage from the NY Housing Authority on the same street with the same timestamp.
On a personal note: I know that this will probably not be shared or reblogged very much, because Asians are not very prominent in American culture. I understand this, because Asians (like me) are partially at fault for being so passive. But I am begging you to please consider signing this petition out of human decency. Ryo was just a student walking home, then struck by a nearly silent police cruiser going at excess speed, and the NYPD covered it up.
Here is the side-by-side comparison of the released video footage, including updates from the case. *Edit* This article contains a link to a graphic video moments after the crash, showing the body of Ryo Oyamada and NY citizens yelling at the police. Please advise, it is highly disturbing.
And the following is an excerpt from the petition, which as of now only has 286 signatures.
On February 21st, 2013, Ryo Oyamada was struck and killed by a police cruiser while crossing the street. NYPD claimed that the cruiser’s lights and sirens were on before the collision, but multiple eyewitnesses stated otherwise, that the lights and sirens were only turned on afterwards, and that the cruiser was speeding in excess of 70 mph down a residential street. None of these eyewitnesses were interviewed for the police report.

Cynical, whimsical, satirical, and curiously earnest, Magic Kingdom is the quintessential play of the 21st century. Sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes heartwarming, but almost always hysterically funny, this pseudo-realistic and semi-cautionary tale features a brother and sister who come to terms with their separate relationship issues in very different ways in the “Most Magical Place On Earth”, which turns out not to be so magical after all. (A little like life, after all.)
This is a very carefully considered performance on all fronts and it shows in the delightfully awkward and truthful weirdness on stage. There is not an element of design or performance out of place, although special mention goes out to Daniel K. Isaac’s Mickey, the humorless and robotic CEO whose attempt at understanding his own humanity, or perhaps just the humanity of the attendees at the Magic Kingdom, is pitch perfect.
Most impressive is their use of projection as a backdrop, to compliment and comment on each scene. Splashing relevant images against a screen set near the back of the stage like awkward family vacation pictures when you don’t Magic Kingdom has possibly done other shows rarely accomplish: put projections front and center in a way that enhances the performances of the actors without overshadowing them. The presence and acknowledgment of the Drew the Technical Coordinator who controls the projections from on stage hint early on at the more fourth wall breaking aspects of the play.
Please, if you see no other theatrical piece at the Fringe Festival this summer, see Magic Kingdom. You will not regret it.
