Deleting Tumblr/social media for like a week so I can focus n git shit dun™
“The shoppers’ immediate response to the violent event ‘absolutely slowed’ investigation as it left authorities scanning through surveillance tapes in pursuit of the single armed attacker.
The few innocent yet armed individuals were eventually weeded out as suspects, amid the several hour-long investigation which began Wednesday night and into Thursday morning.
A police spokesperson confirmed after the building had been deemed ‘safe enough’ to enter, officials quickly began examining footage from inside the supermarket, according to The Denver Post.
‘That’s when we started noticing that a number of individuals had pulled weapons,’ said Victor Avila, who works in part for the Thornton Police Department.
‘At that point, as soon as you see that, that’s the one you try to trace through the store, only to maybe find out that’s not him, and we’re back to ground zero again, starting to look again. That’s what led to the extended time.‘”
Oh! Oh, do I understand correctly that none of these innocent yet armed individuals went on to shoot the actual shooter? I feel faint with surprise
I am shocked. Stunned even. You mean all of those good guys with a gun didn’t do a damned thing. Quick, I need my smelling salts.
Oh but they COULD have done something!!! They VERY EASILY could have mistaken EACH OTHER as the Active Shooter and started a full blown firefight AMONGST THEMSELVES/Arriving Police.
The longer this infantile attidute about guns persists? The more shit like this is gonna happen and, INEVITABLY, SOMBODIE is going to pull a trigger. Then? Once THAT kind of adrenaline fueled/panic stricken shit STARTS? Luck/Fate will be the ONLY thing that determines who/how many get hurt or die.
You mean to tell me that not only did these people with guns not instantly fix the situation like the NRA and Rupublicans love to say they would, but they actually made it worse and weren’t American heroes ? NO WAY!
They VERY EASILY could have mistaken EACH OTHER as the Active Shooter and started a full blown firefight AMONGST THEMSELVES/Arriving Police.
this is what I always bring up. How is anyone supposed to know who the “good guys with guns” are?
Even if they tried to do shit civilians aren’t professionally trained to deal with a spontaneous fucking life or death situation in a populated public place and are AT LEAST as dangerous to all other civilians and themselves as the “bad guy.”
This is all very CO. Literally made this point to someone the other day (ie; don't pull out a gun in open-carry cowboy country) and WHO0A who'da seen't coming huh?
You shouldn’t be treating nb people like the secret sexy 3rd gender. Nb people don’t look like a mash of male and female, they’re not sexy androgynous twinks
white skinny androgynous nb people reblogging this and saying shit like “Well this is what I look like! So I feel represented!” Are literally part of the problem. I’m not saying that no nb people are white/skinny/andro, I’m saying that those are the only type of nb bodies that get represented
its nice, isnt it, when nonbinary people are visibly distinct from binary people? its easy, isnt it? you can remember to use “they” for people who have no visible breasts or beards, right? no need to challenge the notion of male vs female if nonbinary people have their own look, isnt that right?
its time to step the fuck up and really understand that nonbinary looks like anybody. nonbinary looks like you. nonbinary looks like your family and friends and it looks like the strangers who you thoughtlessly call “he” or “she” because of their appearance.
really supporting nonbinary people means understanding that theres no visual tell - you wont recognise all of us as nonbinary on sight. you have to actually LISTEN to us. you have to BELIEVE us. and it means challenging your assumptions about gender, starting with the assumption that youre an ally to trans people while youre still doing puerile shit like gendering body parts and clothes.
NONBINARY LOOKS LIKE ANYBODY. ANY BODY CAN BE NONBINARY.
Say it with me kids
Words are not oppressive. It’s your choice to be offended by them & give them power. Stop being a pussy.
oh lets listen to the guy pretending to be waluigi on the internet they seem to clearly be rational and smart, much like i know waluigi to be
Yeah me having a waluigi themed account clearly negates my ability to have a fucking valid opinion. Ok.
You shouldn’t have let his words have the power to upset you, Waluigi
if you see someone being interrupted in a conversation, acknowledge them, don’t let them be pushed to the side. if you see someone lagging behind, walk beside them. if someone is being ignored, take the step to include them. always remind people of their worth. it hurts when it feels like you’re being forgotten. that small gesture can mean a lot.
when i was in like third grade i went to this science camp and one night at campfire they told us a story about a ufo crashing into a lake nearby and then later in the middle of the night they woke us all up and told us the aliens were back and this time they’d laid eggs in the woods !! it was our duty to arm ourselves and go destroy the eggs, so we armored up in tinfoil and shaving cream ( ????? ) and marched into the woods ready to save the planet. the ‘eggs’ were whole watermelons hidden around the camp and we had to smash them open on trees and rocks and eat the alien fetus/watermelon goo as fast as possible. i cannot emphasis enough the raw joy of digging into a watermelon with your bare hands and stuffing it into your face in the middle of the night in the woods, barely taking time to chew so that you can save the planet from hostile aliens, and i think i became the person i am because of that night.
