The hair was almost right, at one point
Nope still german
Maybe it changes on the day! You know, to broaden our horizons a bit.
Okay so uh
yt music embeds seem to just... pick a language. TMBG was in arabic (I think) and HP was german
let's see what Tally Hall gets:
Current job at work, heavily simplified, is to take a list of file names and copy all of those files from one place to another
I have discovered that not all of the files listed actually exist
Both the list and the file folder come from the same place, implying thatcteam just... ships invalid config files to prod sometimes
Breonna Taylor, pol
Okay, so. *according to the attorney general*, and I want to emphasize the gigantic shakers of salt that come with that, because the details of the case are not published. But according to the attorney general, at least implied, Walker shot first. They busted the door down on a drug warrant, Walker Stood His Ground, and Breonna must have gotten hit in the crossfire.
No drugs were in the room, but four men with guns were. I got opinions, you can guess what they are.
This is less victory or defeat for justice as it is evidence that the rules as written are fucked up and need amending
The system is built to trust the gens d'arme to act as if infallible, and it has become rather clear that they are not and will not. And this needs to change.
I would be really curious to read these court records
I bet you a hundred dollars that qualified immunity vs wrongful death has been litigated a hundred times already and there's mountains of precedent. No lawyer nor judge could get a murder charge through that, no matter how good nor moral.
Law is a game, a competition with rules, winners, and losers. It's moralistic, but not about morality. It's about who can convince the jury that they've correctly identified the path through legal reference to the correct conclusion.
yes, getting the cops on reckless endangerment is like getting capone on tax evasion, but that is *the only way* they were ever gonna get capone, if that makes sense
I am still on the 'yes' side of the fence that UBI would solve many of the effects of racism. Not racism itself - though experiencing generosity does help fight gang mentality, too - but the socioeconomic effects that lead to cops distrusting black folks because of criminal suspicions.
betcha a lot of petty crime and street-level drug violence would evaporate if people could
had a long good talk with a partner today. Feels like the answer to a lot of problems is... education? educational outreach? as much deriving of nonnegotiable issues as I tried to do, "more awareness" always solved it. harmful economic beliefs fall to econ education or history education. Harmful christian doctrine falls to reading the actual bible a bit. Hatred of (group) falls away to meeting them on even grounds (so we need to, uh, even the ground a bit, still, but anyway)
Related thinking: I think 'cancel culture' is probably in fact a problem, and I think its cure is forgiveness. Some benefit-of-the-doubt-giving. Not guaranteed forgiveness, but potential forgiveness. Make ours a community that welcomes those making mistakes and attempts to correct those mistakes - gently, not confrontationally.
We are not fighters, here. We need to be recruiting allies, always. The battlefield is out there.
Maybe it's a gang. Maybe it became that too.
Wants all the best for you.
