Since Ragnarok didn’t end up happening, I figure this is what happened.
Somebody did the thing.
Spread this like a damn wildfire.
17 Year old Christopher Roupe was gunned down by a police officer while answering his front door while holding a Nintendo Wii remote.
"At around 7:30 PM, young Christopher took out his Nintendo Wii controller to put on a movie.
As he was sitting down, he suddenly heard knocking on the front door.
He asked, “Who is it?” but received no response.
At that point he got up from his chair and opened the door.
To his shock, the female cop already had her gun drawn and pointed at him, according to reports.
She immediately fired a bullet into the boy’s chest and killed him, according to Renee Vance, the boy’s aunt.
The police claim that “he had a handgun.”
It was actually the boy’s small Nintendo Wii controller, says the aunt.
The officer gave him “no warning” to drop the controller before taking his life, the aunt added.
The police claimed to be at his house regarding a “probation” matter. It turns out that it had nothing to do with Christopher.
His 13-yr-old little sister heard the gun shot and ran over to the door to find her brother bleeding and crying.
The little sister held her brother and tried to comfort him as he cried in pain, according to reports.
That’s when the female cop pointed her gun at the child and said “Shut up!” according to reports, forcing the girl away.
Moments later Christopher bled to death.
Both the female officer and the officer who was with her have received “paid administrative leave” as the investigation proceeds.”

Police are already trying cover up this incident with bullshit lies.
Don’t let this just get swept under the rug.
A Wii remote in no way resembles a handgun.
This is absolutely ridiculous and disgusting
Patriarchal notions of manhood don’t just harm women, they hurt men. Toxic definitions of masculinity lead to well-documented problems like high rates of gun violence, suicide and sexual violence. That’s why organizations like the Representation Project are committed to advancing the discussion about how gender limits the freedoms of both women and men. They recognize that society’s gender ideals aren’t only damaging for women; they’re universally harmful.
Their latest video examines how stereotypes constrain all people from the moment they are born.
as an autistic person
having autoplay on your blog is disruptive and startling. it bombards me with something that’s 90% of the time completely unfamiliar and often overlaps with what i’m listening to in the first place, without any warning whatsoever. it catches me offguard and…
- fucking everything up
- having no motivation
- being a loser
- hating myself
- disappointing people
- sleeping too much
- being dumb
- socially awkward
- annoying everyone
- having no actual talents
I just want to reblog this again and make it clear that the story we are telling should not be “Cinderella was beautiful and kind and her Stepsisters were ugly and mean.” That isn’t how the world works.
Sometimes I think I care about people, then i remember they don’t give a fuck about me.
“One of my all-time favorites,” he wrote. “From my residency days there was a pretty active ‘knife and gun club’ at Truman Medical Center. What kind of gun blows somebody’s head completely off? I’ve got to get one of those.”
“It reminds (me) of the scene from Terminator 2,” he continued, “when they shoot the liquid metal terminator guy in the face at close range and it kind of splits him open temporarily almost like a flower blooming. We all find beauty in different things.”

OK, so there’s one way to spectacularly demonstrate your unfitness as a medical professional, much less as a member of congress. When you “find beauty” in seeing a human body split like a banana peel, you’re pretty much just a sociopath.
Tea Party candidates, ladies and gentlemen. The very worst America has to offer. (via quickhits)
