House Husbands

Black Indianapolis man shot by cops after calling police to report robbery

Early Tuesday in Indianapolis, an African-American woman was being carjacked in front of her home in her working class neighborhood. She ran back in the house, told her husband, who is also black, and they called the police to report the robbery. That seemed to be the right and safe thing to do.

As the police pulled up, the husband, who was later identified as 48-year-old Carl Williams, opened the garage to their home and was immediately shot in the gut by police.

They claim they believed he was the robber and that because he had a firearm of his own, he was shot in self-defense.

He, of course, was not the robber. In fact, police have yet to even say if they caught the robber. Since they dusted the car for fingerprints, it appears that the actual man committing a crime got away and the man who wanted to protect his wife and family was instead shot and currently fighting for his own life in the hospital.

They tried to kill an innocent homeowner who was trying to protect his wife, his family!  But cops are just so quick to use deadly force!

Tell me how, HOW can we trust the cops! They kill everyone they see!

When it comes to firearms, cops and human life, there is no place to “accidents”, there is competence and negligence.

KING: Black man shot by cops after calling to report robbery
Few cases typify everything that is wrong with gun rights, police brutality and racial profiling like this one.

Meanwhile, in Indianapolis:

Early Tuesday in Indianapolis, an African-American woman was being carjacked in front of her home in her working class neighborhood. She ran back in the house, told her husband, who is also black, and they called the police to report the robbery. That seemed to be the right and safe thing to do.

As the police pulled up, the husband opened the garage to their home and was immediately shot in the gut by police.

They claim they believed he was the robber and that because he had a firearm of his own, they shot him in self-defense.

He, of course, was not the robber. In fact, police have yet to even say if they caught the robber. Since they dusted the car for fingerprints, it appears that the actual man committing a crime got away and the man who wanted to protect his wife and family was instead shot and currently fighting for his own life in the hospital.

This story reminds me of something I saw today: I was taking a walk in my neighborhood and saw two white guys trying to get into a house through a front window. I’ve done the same thing to get into my house, so I assumed they accidentally locked themselves out.

The troubling part was, I doubt casual onlookers would have afforded me, my roommate and our friend the same benefit if they saw 3 black people climbing through a window to get inside a house near Cambridge Massachusetts. Lucky for us we were doing this when it was dark outside…

Black people share the universal pain and fear of automatic criminalization. I will never not be concerned about an overzealous neighbor who is skeptical of my presence, or my roommates & friends. 

I get woken up in the middle of the night by rowdy, even sometimes violent white college students and police don’t get called and no one steps outside. Black people can’t afford to even begin to test those waters, because as you can see, when you miscalculate your right to exist & carry on in your own neighborhood you have a good chance of getting shot.

Things I have heard on the scanner today, in no particular order:

  • Someone calling a neighboring fire department on a coffee place at 5am because they’d just moved here and had no idea what it looks like when you brew large quantities of coffee at once
  • Someone calling a neighboring fire department to a ‘fire on the lake’ and after 20 mins of searching for smoke they found out someone had put out metal plates on a mid-water dock and built a bonfire out of pallets out there because they thought, quote “well, if the fire gets out of hand we can just splash water on it” and that the burn ban didn’t apply on the water.
  • A local woman calling the cops because she was convinced her neighbors stole her car and it was literally just parked behind her house because her husband was planning on mowing the front yard and didn’t want to hit it with a rock. 
  • A man walking around Safeway calling people perverts for wearing shorts in public, before being run out of the store and the cops being called on him.
  • Stater leaving his mic on while playing “Barbie Girl” for like, a half hour. 

What the hell, Washington.

ani-and-his-angel  asked:

For the ask thing: Anakin Skywalker

character: hate them | don’t really care | like them | LOVE them | THEY ARE MY PRECIOUS

ship with: Mostly with therapy, and his wife Padme, and sometimes Obi Wan.

brotp: SNIPS AND SKYGUY

general opinions: At first I didn’t like him, but the clone wars really made me warm up to him as a character. In some ways, I get his struggle. He has all these grand expectations placed on him and he feels like he’s obligated to fulfill them, even though I don’t think that’s what he really wants. Great jedi aside, I think he’d be happier being Padme’s house husband and spending time with his kids. But I also try to be realistic looking at him because the dude does become Vader after all, and they are one and the same person.

When Stay-at-Home Husbands Are Embarrassing to Their Wives | TIME.com

We simply haven’t evolved to the point where a househusband is considered desirable

Patriarchy, my ass. This is modern feminism still demanding that men be expendable success objects. You know, the ones who get killed on the job trying to support women.

Ain’t no feminist out there wanting more househusbands in the world.
