A Texas man is under arrest after gunning down a SWAT team member as the officer quietly tried to climb in through the apartment’s window during predawn hours.
Police State USAreports  that a resident fatally shot Detective Charles “Chuck” Dinwiddie as the officer climbed in through a ground level window as part of a “no knock” raid. The officers were there due to suspicion that residents were in possession of controlled substances.
Upon hearing a noise, resident Marvin Louis Guy, 50, opened fire on the unidentified officers, shooting three others as well, although only one fatally.
Guy is currently being held on capital murder charges in connection with Dinwiddie’s death, even though it’s unclear how Guy was supposed to know that the men crawling in through the window were police officers since they hadn’t identified themselves.
The evidence sheet lists a laptop, a safe, a pistol, and a glass pipe, but no drugs were found. Given the evidence, why did police deem it necessary to seek a “no knock” warrant and why did a judge sign off on it?
Very little is known about Mr. Guy, but Dinwiddie left behind two children, all because his SWAT team went creeping into a home where the residents didn’t even have any drugs. Is that the best use of law enforcement tax dollars?
Guy’s bond has been set at $3 million dollars.

Thank you lieutenantnorals!

Texas people!!
Isn’t there a law where it is legal to shoot to kill on your property if there’s a physical threat? Esp if they broke in your home?

Hey, AAGU! I wanted to bring this atrocious piece of journalism to your attention. CSULB’s official student newspaper The Daily 49er has recently published a racist and xenophobic article about China. [x]
Some choice quotes include:

"Also, people in China love to yell, and have no concept of using “inside voices.”"
 ”Overall, people in China neglect to follow many of the social standards that we value in the West.”
"…if I had been one of those insufferable D-bags from the Jersey Shore, I would’ve left behind dozens of people with black eyes"
"Good luck trying to find anyone who is able to speak English."

This was written by the opinions editor of the paper - this person actually manages an entire section. It’s completely unacceptable and given CSULB’s history of supporting racists - I think they should be called out. An apology is overdue, not just from the writer himself but also from the editorial team for letting such garbage be published online.
You can leave a comment on the article itself or email the editor and their faculty advisor:

  5. All of this is typical girl-fear. Once you realize that The Exorcist is, essentially, the story of a 12-year-old who starts cussing, masturbating, and disobeying her mother—in other words, going through puberty—it becomes apparent to the feminist-minded viewer why two adult men are called in to slap her around for much of the third act. People are convinced that something spooky is going on with girls; that, once they reach a certain age, they lose their adorable innocence and start tapping into something powerful and forbidden. Little girls are sugar and spice, but women are just plain scary. And the moment a girl becomes a woman is the moment you fear her most. Which explains why the culture keeps telling this story.

    Rookie, The Season of the Witch

    For readings on the correlation in horror between puberty and the monstrous, see:

    I will add Carol Clover’s Men, Women, and Chain Saws here, although she’s concerned more with identification, monstrous-feminine as men’s horror, and the maternal aspects of possession tales (including a section on possession as oral penetration). Although both Creed and Clover are important feminist horror theorists who work in Psychoanalytical lenses, Barbara Creed talks more about transformation than Carol Clover does. And transformation is key to horror movies about how women are terrifying.

    For variations on a theme, watch Ginger Snaps, Carrie, and Teeth together.

    (Bonus: here is Kristeva’s Powers of Horror: an Essay on Abjection for free online)

    I’m 90000% sure I wrote the text below this but it doesn’t link to (probably ff) anywhere. it’s important to keep sources in posts so that you don’t disorient authors about their own pasts,

    KICKASS WOMEN IN HISTORY : [2/5] HUA MULAN

    Hua Mulan was a legendary figure in Chinese history. She lived from 581 to 618 AD during the Sui Dynasty, though other records place her between 386 and 534 AD, during the Northern Wei Dynasty. While the dates may be disputed, her story is unequivocal. Mulan’s father was a soldier and raised her like a boy. She not only learned weaving and embroidery from her mother, but also practiced martial arts, equitation, archery, and fencing with her father. In her spare time she liked to read her father’s manuals on military strategy. When war broke out and the emperor was calling for soldiers, Mulan disguised herself as a man and went in her father’s place. She served for twelve long years, in that time she witnessed traumatic horrors, lost dear friends, and received numerous honours. After the war ended, the emperor wanted to award her an official position, but she declined and asked for a good horse instead as she wished to return home to her family. No other woman in Chinese history has inspired more admiration than Mulan, who is considered an embodiment of loyalty and filial piety.

    Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)

    The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover

LET ME POINT OUT OF THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS SCENE:
Here, Captain America - a hero in this film - is standing still while three other kinds of heroes, rush around to do thier job. (this is in no way bashing Cap, he is simply standing still at this moment, most likely in shock/fatigue). A soldier, a BLACK COP and two firemen. While American’s super soldier is immobilized, our every day heroes are still fighting to ensure safety and peace. The fact that Marvel created this moment in thier film, a film focused on the heroes, speaks yet again to thier message that you don’t have to be a super, to be super.

  12. i just burped so loud i shocked myself into silence

  13. amazonpoodle:

    come and sit next to me and let’s talk about hardison/parker and how it’s one of the best and healthiest and most functional canon romances i have ever seen in my life

    how about how hardison crushes on parker first and doesn’t like repress his feelings but also doesn’t act like parker is responsible for how he feels. how about how he never acts like being her friend and her teammate and her found family isn’t enough for him. how about the way he’s kind and supportive and doesn’t expect to be ~repaid~. how about that.

    how about when parker knows she doesn’t want to be in a relationship she sets boundaries. how about when parker sets boundaries hardison respects them. how about the way hardison is patient without any expectation of a ~payoff~ but also doesn’t put his own life on hold. how about the way they keep getting closer!! and trusting each other more!! so playful!! respecting what the other is good at!!

    how about how in the long way down job when parker breezes past hardison’s hug, instead of going for it again next time he interprets that to mean she doesn’t do hugs and does that goofy little shoulder-punch instead, just to tell her he’s there? how about how parker gives HARDISON a hug — adapts to him but not at her own expense — and lets herself be comforted? how about when parker’s like “you know this isn’t gonna be normal, right?” and hardison is all *___________*!! how about that!

    how about their prom dance with parker still in her climbing harness!! how about them going on thieving vacations together!! how about parker watching e.t.!! HOW ABOUT HARDISON PUTTING A PARACHUTE IN PARKER’S BACKPACK. HOW ABOUT PARKER BEING HARDISON’S VOICE ON THE RADIO TO KEEP HIM FROM HYPERVENTILATING.

    how about how hardison’s a geek and parker’s a weirdo and they love those things about each other!! how about nobody changing who they fundamentally are for another person!! how about hardison fretting about parker right after they’ve first started dating and parker is like LOL NOPE LET ME DO MY JOB. how about them rescuing each other all the time!! how about the way the narrative never makes parker ~tragic~ or ~broken~? how about the way hardison is the warm sweet gentle nurturing one? (how about how hardison is the heeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaart she howled into the night)

    HOW ABOUT ALL THAT STUFF EH

    Dr. James Weir and the rise of the Viragents,

    Dr. James Weir Jr. was a naturalist and evolutionary scientist in the 19th century who followed the work of Charles Darwin.  After studying animals and the origins of the human race, Dr. Weir quickly applied his evolutionary theories to modern society.  According to Weir, civilized culture was de-evolving, breaking down and regressing ever closer to savagery and barbarism.  To support his theory, he used as evidence the many workers strikes that were occurring around the turn of the century, which was common during the industrial revolution.  According to his beliefs, such strikes were an example of the downfall of civilization because those of the lower class, who he considered less evolved and less intelligent, where seeking to overthrow the upper classes, those he considered more evolved and more intelligent.

    Expounding further in his theories, Dr. Weir also cited the Women’s Suffrage (right to vote) movement as another example of humanity’s de-evolution.  According to Weir in an essay penned in 1894, Women who were strong, independent, and self sufficient were a class of mentally disturbed and physically deformed women called “viragints”.  Unlike “normal” women who knew their place in society, were subordinate to men, and lived a humble feminine lifestyle, viragints were a class of women who had de-evolved and regressed to a savage state.  According to Weir, granting women the right to vote would only encourage more empowerment for women, thus regressing them further “ backward toward the state of her barbarian ancestors.”

    Dr. Weir went even further writing that women’s rights, and most especially the right to vote would create whole generations of viragints, which would eventually lead to the collapse of civilization.  Despite Dr. Weirs warnings, the 19th Amendment was passed in 1920, making it illegal to deny the right to vote based on gender.
