US students will be able to shield themselves during school shootings with the latest in body armour, the Bodyguard Blanket
http://goo.gl/WwvECT
Are fucking kidding me? I have been sitting at home and constantly watching the news after the events of yesterday. For those of you who are wondering, I am a junior at REYNOLDS HIGH SCHOOL! I was there when the shooter kept running in the halls trying to open the doors and get in. I was there in the dark praying and crying while my librarian kept saying ” they’ll have to kill me before they touch my kids” I have known her for three years, her determination to keep us safe broke her heart. Seeing this, that little children need protection in school. Are we sending kids to a battlefield? I have three little brothers ranging from 5-10, and still people have the nerve to speak about the second amendment? Really? I can’t even type anymore. I’m so disgusted and frustrated. When will you realize that it’s important to have gun control? When a shooter is pointing a gun at your child? Is that when you’ll realize that guns aren’t something to be kept around. People say it’s a free country but honesty, this country is more oppressed and diseased than any other country.

Show me ONE instance where gun control and gun free zones prevented school shootings.



Let me tell you guys a story. In 1996, in a little town in Australia called Port Arthur, a gunman killed 35 and injured 23. This place was a tourist attraction, with plenty of visitors and locals going about their business. 35 people died.That’s 35 marriages, anniversaries, birthdays or uni degrees. 35 people left Port Arthur in body bags.At the time, we had a pretty conservative government, and the Prime Minister at the time (in hindsight) was kind of a dick. But within two weeks of the shooting, Howard instituted a massive reform and buyback of all firearms. 
But it must be a statistical flaw, you say, there weren’t that many massacres before 1996, right? No, WRONG. In the eighteen years leading up to Port Arthur, there had been 13 mass shootings. 
But April, you ask, this couldn’t possibly have worked could it? Wouldn’t it only have reduced the mass shootings? WRONG.Since 1996, there have been ZERO mass shootings. That’s right, ZERO. FUCKING ZILCH. There have been scattered homicides, however:
How many schools have been raided and children murdered? NONE.How many film buffs have been murdered in their seats? NONE.How many innocent lives have been lost to the barrel of a gun? NONE.
On top of this, homicides involving the use of guns, and youth suicide involving the use of guns has declined dramatically, by up to 60%
Australia, however much the environment tries to kill you, is a safe haven, and you can walk the streets with 99% assurance that you won’t fall victim to a drive by shooting.
Your move, America.

in 1987 a lone gunman killed 16 people, wounded 15 and then committed suicide. within six months the uk government passed an amendment to the firearms act effectively outlawing all high calibre, high frequency, high capacity rifles and shotguns.
in 1996 another lone gunman killed 16 children and their teacher, and then committed suicide. again within six months the uk government outlawed all handguns. special dispensation had to be issued in order to hold shooting competition as part of the 2012 olympic games, and british hopefuls had to train overseas.
you can legally own certain types of shotgun, .22 calibre rifles over a certain barrel length, and antiques. that’s it.
in the nigh-on twenty years since the uk has had one mass shooting. one. and we’re down to about 30 gun-related deaths annually.
there is not one example of gun control laws reducing mass shootings and gun-related homicide. there are dozens. it literally works every time. the usa is the anomaly not because it didn’t work but because it hasn’t tried.

I apologize to friends/family for the language but when I saw this pop up on my feed, I had to say something. It’s people like this who make the world so terrible. What really got ME ‘bonkers’ was how many people liked it, and how I actually knew some of those people. Society does not need to teach women what to wear. Society needs to teach people like THIS GUY how to be proper human beings and treat men and women as equals. If I can think straight talking to a topless man, I’m pretty sure men can handle talking to a fully dressed woman. PS, I remember this guy now. He was on my badminton team. PPS, he couldn’t handle someone actually calling him out, so he deleted all of my comments so as not to ruin the world-hip-hop-star-image he’s trying to create. (at James Lick High School)

How about some love for a good police officer?

Officer Gaetano Acerra

Responded to a call where a 13 year old boy didnt want to live in his home anymore. He found out that the family couldnt afford a bed or much else for the teen.

So he bought him one. A big queen sized one.

He also bought him a Tv and someone donated a Wii, so now they play whenever Officer Gaetano Acerra has a chance

He also plans to get him a dresser, mirror, and a hamper. Among other things he needs but cannot afford.

People. They’re not ALWAYS a bunch of bastards.

The corruption needs to go.
This guy can stay.

I find posts like this to be so disturbing. There will always be that ONE example that any damn person can find to say “not all cops” “not all white people,” etc. And when you spread stories like this you are completely missing the point. This just completely obfuscates the point that the systems we are talking about here are rotten to their core and that the police as an institution need to go and be replaced from the ground up. There is no such thing as “reforming” an institution like the police that was literally founded as white slave patrols to control black movement and capture runaway slaves. There is no such thing as “reforming” an institution that brutalizes black bodies and lives with impunity and has for decades and centuries. And this will continue to happen even if you “diversify” the forces to throw some token black and brown faces into the mix. This will continue happen even if you all continue to bend over backwards to find THAT ONE GOOD COP so that we don’t ever actually confront the ugly truth that the institution he is a part of is antiblack and rotten at its core and will never support black lives. It’s so telling that people gobble up stories like this because people in this country are so incredibly dishonest and will find any way to deflect conversations which center the humanity of black people. They don’t want to have frank discussions about institutional power and police brutality as it’s leveled against us. No, they instead want to talk about and try to defend “the good cops” even as black people are literally getting killed, harassed and maimed daily by the police as an institution. These people are so incredibly morally bankrupt.

The corruption will not go as long as the police exist. This white man you are all lauding as a hero needs to go as well as the entire corrupted institution he is a part of. The police cannot be “reformed” as that will never ultimately protect and save us from an institution literally founded around the brutalization of black lives and bodies in this country. I don’t care that this guy is “nice” and did an individual act of kindness when the institution he is a part of has proven itself again and again for decades to actively work to undermine and destroy black lives in this country. The only thing that will work is tearing this institution down and  rebuilding it from the ground up with a totally new value system which actually values the sanctity and humanity of black life.  And in this process, your token examples of “good cops” which you all love to use to deflect from these larger conversations about the white supremacy and patriarchal violence at the center of our police, they need to go as well, because that is what it takes for us to destroy and recreate these totally corrupted, virulently antiblack institutions.
