    i cant help but think that the only reason that cop's sentence is so short is because she's a *white* *woman* . yall know if it were a man in her position he'd be on death row immediately. a man lost his fucking life because of that retard's mistake and shes getting off way too easy. why the fuck is she getting hugged for killing someone in such a stupid way?

    Drug injections sights don't work if the drug addicts don't go to the sights. London in Canada has like... 5-10 sights around the city, yet our opioid crisis is at an all time high and we're finding needles all over the damn place in the down town core. Stop giving addicts the ability to get new needles when they aren't going to properly dispose of the dirty ones they already have!!

  • Hysteria F.
    Hysteria F. Month ago

    In relation to Amber Guyger, I whole-heartedly believe that the murder of Botham John was a misunderstanding. It's a murder because she meant to shoot him, but I don't think she realized she was in the wrong room. After the murder, other residents were interviewed and many of them said they have accidentally went to the wrong room. After a 14 hour shift, after covering swat team members, and detaining 3 criminals. I think she would be on edge, and not focused on a lot. I know, personally, I don't focus on a lot of things after a 14 hour shift. And so we are all clear, I believe she should have been convicted of murder, I don't believe she should be protected by a "stand-your-ground" law, but I don't believe she would have done the same thing under different circumstances.

    People only ever bring George Carlin when it suits them. I've seen retards from both sides of the political spectrum cherry pick quotes from him to forward their stance; He has also said a lot of shit "woke" twatter wouldn't like. Also, not everything he said is automatically true or immune to refutation.

    If we want to enable this kind of behaviour fine, but can you put in an area pretty much fucking devoid of normal people? My gym is unfortunately really close to an injection site and I usually have to pass by this eyesore of a facility. The problem is that they lurk around the building sometimes they just jump at you thinking it's funny like you're in a haunted house. I'm 100% against sites, we should be helping these people clean up their act, tumblr was right... Drugs are winning the war against drugs.

    on demi lovato, we have to separate the icon the celebrity from the individual, she is human has rights and freedom. her spiritual expression is her right, let her be spiritual, you doesn't have to be political, stop forcing celebrities to take sides, many celebs are in depression or other issues, let the entertainer do her JOB and entertain, but live her life and individuality alone, she is human no different from you and me, she has dreams, fears, needs, and hurts, like we all do, stop deifying celebrities they are just people no better no worse. we are all humans first and we have human rights.

    Addicts are going to use whether or not there is a safe injection site. Why is the government opposed to saving lives. A doctor hooked my brother on opiates. Which lead him to heroin after the doctor just stopped giving out the prescriptions that got him hooked in the first place. On April 6, 2014 he overdosed and died alone. People are going to keep doing heroin whether this place opens or not. I'm from Philadelphia and I know the devastation this drug is doing. This method is saving lives in other countries. Its reducing Hep C and HIV and its helping people get in treatment. Our government fucking sucks

  • Anna

    The EU story feels like a HUGE violation of everyone's rights. How does something that affects everyone internationally get to be decided by Europe alone? This feels especially intrusive if you take it in conjunction with the China/Hong Kong situation right now. It feels like all the sudden governments are going to have the ability to suppress anything they don't agree with and that's some dystopian sh*t.

    The injection sites are something that NEED to happen here. The US treats people who have addiction like they are less than human. Solutions like this with a focus on helping to rehabilitate people are so necessary. It's insane to me that the government is fully endorsing the idea that it's worth more to potentially keep a few people from trying a drug than to save lives. By blocking this solution we just completely brush off these people like their lives are less valuable and only people who have never touched a drug are worth saving.

    Getting mad at Demi Lovato for making a spiritual pilgrimage trip to Israel because of the political tensions in Israel would be like getting mad at a Muslim celebrity for going to Saudi Arabia for Haaj despite political deterrents. Thousands of Jews, Christians (including Arab Christians. In fact Egyptian Coptics make pilgrimage every year during Easter), Bahai, and, yes, even *Muslim* tourists visit Israel every year for religious purposes. And people from each of these religions support either side of the conflict or have no interest in the political conflict in the area. I'm upset that she felt the need to apologize for making a journey to explore her spirituality and her religion - she has nothing to apologize for. People need to stop letting their politics dictate other people's actions.

    I understand that people aren’t treated equally in the court because of race and that isn’t right, however, that doesn’t make this moment with the brother and judge wrong. Any display of grace and forgiveness isn’t wrong just because it isn’t shown other places. It means the other places should be fixed, not that this moment shouldn’t have happened.

    NO! You idiots, she gets a hug because she is a human being filled with regret after doing something she can never take back while barely meaning to, instead spurred on by fear stemming from exhaustion and misunderstanding. Even if she had a callous view of black people before, she'd be forever changed after actually taking a life she didn't need to take.
    Now I'm not saying her being white didn't affect things. But if a black man did it and was absolutely hated for it, never given understanding and forgiveness, THAT would be wrong!
    The judge though, while I get it, was professionally inappropriate.

  • Bea Schlumpf

    We have safe injection sides in Germany, I visited one in Frankfurt and have to say it does safe lives and offers help to those who are willing to accept it. It does NOT encourage drug use. As a person who never took any hard drugs, only tried alcohol and weed (which is normal for teenagers in Germany), I found it really strange to see such a safe place. And it showed me a dark side I didn't know before, cause there are drug hotspots in any city. So please give people a safe place and a chance to get better, don't let them suffer and die under a bridge because of a contaminated needle or weather conditions while doing drugs.

    I have always liked Carlin, he was an AMAZING person all around, and while I can understand what Carlin was trying to say in that clip about "punching down" it is also a VERY subjective concept, it is also a problem to start, if you consider someone "down" from you aren't you already looking at someone as less? And most saying that are only looking at the "punching down" as their own beliefs and feelings on something. In that very clip while he was talking about "punching down" he also made a very clear statement that while he didn't think that other comedian should "punch down" that they SHOULD BE ALLOWED to say what they want. Carlin's career was almost fully done by saying things he KNEW were seen as taboo and would offend specific others, he was outspoken about people being hypocrites about beliefs and called out anti/pseudo-science in religion, politics, and individuals own thinking, things that would also be considered "punching down" to some and just offensive to many others. And while he might personally find specific groups "down" he was known for making fun of Jews (religiously) even though he was not religious, something that many would consider "punching down" since they are a religious "minority" in society. He talks about trying to not "punch down" but also was very clear about the freedom to say whatever you wanted despite what someone else felt about it.
    As a specific point to this, it is almost everywhere seen as fine to make fun of or demonize Caucasian people because many think they are the "majority"... but that isn't the truth at all. If you look at the global statistics on race you would see that Asian (combined Southern and Eastern) are around 3 Time larger a population, just the Population of Asians in China alone are about 1.5x the number of Caucasians world wide. Yet with this drastic majority in population it is seen as "punching down" if someone makes fun of someone Asian in a joke, how is this if the population rate is easily not in that favor? This is the exact problem though, what is seen as "punching down" is typically only worried about by those who are offended by something personally or are taking part if "offense culture" in part for someone else.
    I personally find it disturbing that people can't deal with comedy of any sort, it is not only a matter of free speech but also a bastion that is one of the last places where we can openly talk about some things, even though there SHOULD ALWAYS be somewhere we can discuss EVERYTHING but people are so "offended" these days that we can't even have scientific discussion about some topics without someone getting there feelings hurt. Comedy is also a mirror that allows you a way to look at yourself and your own actions, if you don't like someone joking about something then maybe you should be looking at yourself to see why that is, sure maybe they are just being an asshole, but maybe there is a place where those jokes comes from, if you don't like the stereotypes then don't live them, and if you aren't living them then why are you personally offended by something that doesn't pertain you?
    How many comics (that aren't Caucasian) have acts making fun of poor, uneducated, white rednecks? There are lots of them (and they are funny), but isn't that "punching down" to make fun of a group of people that is also disenfranchised and basically outcast from society because of the unfortunate situations of their birth? Yet no one seems to care because they don't take the time to see beyond their own prejudices and beliefs. Shouldn't I, as a white man, be outraged every time I see a non-white comedian making fun of white people who are also mistreated by society? But I'm not because its stereotypes that most don't live and while it is an unfortunate situation there are well I can look past being offended not only because its just a joke, but because I can reflect on myself that way.
    Certainly you shouldn't mistreat random strangers you meet, that isn't comedy, and you can not like what someone else says, but shutting something down just because you don't like it doesn't help anyone in any situation. If you don't like something then PROVE why it isn't correct, don't get upset and act like a spoiled child throwing a tantrum.

    Why is no one, not even Phil (whom I love and respect immensely!), talking about how the judge hugged the family first?!? For all we know the judge asked their permission, or maybe not. The fact is she hugged the family first and then hugged Amber. I wasn’t there for the whole trial, I can’t even fathom how hard it was on everyone in that courtroom, so I can’t make a statement on whether it was right or wrong I just think everyone needs all the facts. 🤷🏼‍♀️

    i personally agree with safehouse on this one. One of my old friends died of an overdose and though my emotions say "this thing took my friends life away we should ban it" they also said the same about guns a while back. For context, i personally believe that you should be able to own any form of weaponry, but i do believe that you need to have more strict rules when giving someone a gun. If the places that safehouse wants to open were there 2 years ago my friend might still be here.

    In response to the eu i completely disagree with there decision here

    As a former IV heroin addict I do not think there would be anything more terrifying then going to a safe house and going around a bunch of people knowing exactly what you are doing. It in no way would make it more comfortable for people to become addicts BUT it would save lives. Instead of dropping dead with needles in their arms in some dope house no one cares about them in. Heroin is different there is no stopping. I’ve known people who’ve died ten times and went right back out. Somehow I’ve been clean six years but this is a disease. A very deadly one. People don’t get better first they get ten times sicker obviously our ways have done NOTHING. I garuntee any person mad at this comment can ask a friend, family member, or coworker and you know someone touched by addiction. Check out those death statistics compared to guns.
    I’m just lucky enough to not be one. Open your mind before you close the only option to help start getting someone’s life in the right direction.
    (It’s everywhere but I could go on for months on this subject.)

  • Tails Clock

    That hug is a far bigger rarity to see than a murder conviction. That is the kind of response towards an accidental murder that we need more of if we want to live in a good world. Really warmed my heart.

    But the judge who's job relies entirely on her being impartial and not letting emotion affect things, to see her hug and give a bible (What kinda gift is that? Everyone already owns 3 copies they're worthless.) to the person she was judging over felt very uncomfortable to see. Never do that in a court room. Don't hug someone, don't shout at them and swear at them either. It doesn't matter if it's nice or mean, show some professionalism when you hold the fate of someone's life in your little hammer.

    As for the drug injection sites, politicians banning them is like someone at a swimming pool locking up all the floaty toys and then expecting a birthday party load of children that are there not to jump in the pool. Using the logic that "some can't swim and will drown though" is not a logic the targets share. You can't use that kind of thinking to stop these people. You cannot prevent something from happening just by making sure some of those people die either, if this is intentionally malicious.
    If you aren't going to help someone get off drugs. The least you can do is keep them out of harms way. It is not enabling to keep people from DYING from OVERDOSES. Yes by letting people use safe needles and have people watching out for them this will increase the amount of drugs users around. Because the users are STAYING ALIVE. And I hope no-one needs me to say that keeping people alive is GOOD. Yet these war-on-drugs types frame it to be a failure. These politicians need to refind their sense of humanity and do more to support safe injection areas.

Israel spends A LOT of money working on their image in the western world, they do a lot of PR (public relations is another term for propaganda btw), and they hide the dark things they do so they look like good guys. People need to know this and I'm happy Demi saw through that transaction. She was a tool for PR. Especially in times where they're about to take-on Iran, they HAVE to appear (focusing on the word "APPEAR" here) good.

    Damn, I didn't know Guyger said those horrible things. I get the outrage.

    Ah yes, nothing says "this is a loving, spiritual place" quite like ethnic-cleansing, displacement, and human rights violations from profiting white colonizers. Enjoy your retreat, love!

    It’s not Demi’s job to have an opinion about anything political. Her intention was to go to that free trip and enjoy the place and enjoy her Christianity. PEOPLE inserted meaning into her trip. It their problem. She doesn’t know anything nor does she want to anything about political issues, and I don’t blame her.
