horrific crimes


A timeline of terrible events broadcast on Facebook Live — and why Facebook can’t stop it

  • Facebook Live is turning into a digital diary of graphic, violent activity. The livestreaming service has a dark side: footage of rapes, torture and suicide are being broadcast on the platform with relative frequency.
  • The most recent discussion about Facebook Live and livestream regulations resurfaced after a man named Steve Stephens shot and killed a 74-year-old named Robert Godwin Sr. on Sunday in Cleveland, Ohio.
  • “This is a horrific crime and we do not allow this kind of content on Facebook,” a Facebook spokesperson said. “We work hard to keep a safe environment on Facebook and are in touch with law enforcement in emergencies when there are direct threats to physical safety.”
  • But can Facebook Live do anything to stop disturbing content? Read more (4/17/17)

About Seddm

since people are so goddamn dense I’m gonna compile all the shit he’s said and done (Including gross commentary from his disgusting followers) and how so much of his behavior can be taken as intentionally pedophilic.

Links and Screenshots are provided so if you’re just gonna bombarded me with obvious defense like “it’s fictional!” then you already missed the point.

Here is why Seddm can be considered dangerous to children in a fandom that praises him for the content he posts while letting his shit fly, basically following him blindly.

#NSFW and #CSA ahead; also another thing about Areablog (Where Seddm and other adult fans get their child porn from)

It’s here, it’s here, it’s finally here!! I am so excited and proud to announce that the release of the “Love is Love” graphic novel is tomorrow, 12/28, and we have plenty at the Gamer’s Gambit!

The graphic novel was created through the joint efforts of IDW Publishing and DC Comics in order to support the survivors and honor the victims of the Pulse Nightclub shooting that happened earlier this year. Containing stories by multiple artists and writers such as Jim Lee, Gail Simone, Patton Oswald, and many more, the graphic novel is a collection of stories and reactions that were felt across the world as the news of this horrific hate crime broke.

I had to hold back tears as I flipped through this book; on one hand we see the reactions from characters as they watch the news unfold about the attack on the LGBT community. We see the sadness, the anger, the confusion as to how one human being could twist themselves around such hatred and let it consume them. And then, through other pages, we are treated to vibrant and beautiful colours featuring couples finding strength, family members accepting those who take a brave step and come out to them, a resurgence of love that refuses to simply break down and let anger taint everything. We see the faces of heroes and villains we know and love–Harley and Ivy, Batman, Batwoman, the Lantern Corps–reach out to help us find the power we’ve always had inside us. The power to push back.
The power to love and keep loving.

All proceeds from “Love is Love” will go to the families of the victims and the survivors via Equality Florida.

To quote a page of “Love is Love” that resonates with me personally:
“Keep creating your art. Tell your stories and celebrate life. Because that’s how we beat this thing…”

What effect does punching Richard Spencer have? Please cite reliable sources.

It denies fascism a platform to legitimacy. 

Transcription of an interview with Mark Bray from WNYC’s On the Media – Feb. 10, 2017

Brooke: But not just that, right? Antifa is fundamentally against the right of fascists to speak and be heard.

Mark: That’s entirely correct. So, in your open you mentioned the popular slogan that liberals have adopted from Voltaire that, “I may disagree with what you have to say but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” Anti-fascists fundamentally disagree with that premise. They argue that, given the horrors of Auschwitz and Treblinka, the destruction that Nazis have caused, that fascists, white supremacists shouldn’t be granted the right to express their ideas in public, in part because, they argue, had that been done earlier in the 1920s, the 1930s, we might have been able to bypass what ended up happening.

Brooke: I get that as a tactic, but I’m still not sure how the philosophy of anti-fascism squares with the liberal values of free speech and open dialogue, and I guess it doesn’t.

Mark: To some extent, it doesn’t. The question is: if we want to prevent something along the lines of what happened in the 1930s and 40s from happening again, how do we do it? And the liberal prescription for doing it is, essentially, free and open debate and dialogue, and if Nazis do something illegal then hopefully the police will stop them. Anti-fascists recognize that in the 1930s, 1940s, the police supported fascism. The fascists didn’t actually stage a revolution to come to power; they worked within the political system. And all the reasonable dialogue and debate that one could muster did not do the job. The argument is that, if we want such a horrific crime to not reoccur, it needs to be nipped in the bud.”

📺  Nineteen Eighty-Four - Our characters live in a world where their every move and every thought is watched by the government. Informants and spies known as the Thought Police are everywhere, and dissenters are taken to the horrifying Room 101. There is no escape. You can only survive.

🔥 Fahrenheit 451 - Our characters live in a world where books are banned, and those who are not “normal” seem to vanish. Any books found will be burned by the “firemen”, armed with gasoline and flamethrowers, and dissenters are tracked down by the fearsome mechanical Hound.

🍊 A Clockwork Orange - Our characters live in a world where young people form oddly-dressed gangs and engage in horrific violence, committing crimes unhindered by adults. 

👩 The Handmaid’s Tale - Our characters live in a world where a religious military dictatorship has been enforced. Fertile women are forced to become Handmaids, and made to conceive for the continuation of the dying human race. They are forbidden from reading and conversation in this world is strictly controlled by a set script. Spies known as Eyes are everywhere, and those who do not conform are sent to die in the irradiated Colonies.

🛒 The Road - Our characters live in a world where an apocalypse event has occurred, barely anyone is left alive, and the environment around them is barren and bleak. Their only hope is travelling to a location they hope still exists. Everyone and everything is a threat, and they must scavenge what they can to survive.

🏃 The Running Man - Our characters live in a world where a totalitarian society has taken over, and a violent game show known as The Running Man exists. A contestant is declared an enemy of the state, and given a 12-hour head start before the Hunters, an elite team of hitmen, are sent to kill them. They can travel anywhere in the world, but viewers earn money for revealing their whereabouts. They earn $100 for every hour they stay alive, extra for killing law enforcement or Hunters, and win a grand prize of $1 billion for surviving for 30 days. Nobody has ever won it.

💭 The Chrysalids - Our characters live in a world where people who are “different” are branded as “blasphemies” and killed without mercy. Any visible variation in genetics can be grounds for being eliminated. However, some have an invisible mutation - they have telepathic abilities.

❌ Harrison Bergeron - Our characters live in a world where everyone is expected to be perfectly equal. People are given “handicaps”. Strong people are made to wear heavy weights. Beautiful people must wear masks. Intelligent people must wear ear radios, which play sounds to stop one’s thoughts. Everyone is equal, but at what cost?


So here’s the thing. The reason decent humans don’t like the Nazis is because of the horrific crimes they perpetrated against millions of people. If Hydra worked with the Nazis DURING WORLD WAR II to defeat the Allies, that means they helped perpetrate those crimes. That means they supported a regime that, in this timeline continued on unchecked to kill even more people than it did during the real World War II. In Spencer’s story, HYDRA was complicit in everything the Nazis did. Even if they have a different name, that makes HYDRA and anyone who works for them, just as evil, and party to the same disgusting ideology. 

anonymous asked:

So, seeing a lot of posts lately about cultural appropriation and various practices of the craft, if wording it right. Example, where they say white people shouldn't practice hoodoo. Is this true in your opinion for other cultures practices and not to incorporate them at all? How to know which ones to not even consider if is case. Thanks in advance.

Wow, you’ve really asked a big one there.

Cultural appropriation is a huge issue in the witchcraft community, and for good reason. As white people, our collective ancestors colonised (read: invaded) basically the whole world, and brutalised (and in some cases annihilated) indigenous peoples as a result. Native religions and spiritual practices were mocked, demonised, and often wiped out. It is the height of injustice and arrogance, then, that we should feel we have some right to practice the traditions of those people we destroyed. Some things are not for us.

It can be a tricky issue trying to find out what traditions are open and what ones are closed, but it is made all the easier by simply asking someone of authority in that tradition. If someone of that culture tells you that it is not for you, then you must respect that. Think of it in microcosmic terms: you wouldn’t just walk into a stranger’s house and help yourself to whatever was in their fridge. You would knock and wait to be invited in, and if you were refused entry you would respect that.

N.B.: when I speak of ‘collective ancestors’ I mean just that; you personally may not have had an ancestor involved in colonisation, but collectively we come from a culture(s) that is responsible for horrific crimes against indigenous peoples.


Photographs of serial killer Leonard Lake’s remote ranch in Calaveras county, California, where he settled after skipping bail for a firearms violation . It was here that him and his partner in crime, Charles Ng, would take the people that they abducted, and where they would torture, sexually assault, rape and murder them.

It was on the grounds of this ranch that police managed to exhume 12 bodies, which consisted of at least two whole families. The women of these families had been tortured and sexually assaulted before their murders, while their husbands and children had been disposed of immediately. The police also found bodies of men that the pair had lured to the ranch and robbed, before murdering them.

Leonard Lake never faced a trial for these horrific crimes as he completed suicide shortly after he was apprehended, biting down on a cyanide pill that he brought with him to the police station.


January 27th 1945: Liberation of Auschwitz

On this day in 1945, the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in Poland was liberated by the Soviet Red Army. One of the most notorious camps of Nazi Germany, Jews and others persecuted by the Nazi regime were sent to Auschwitz from 1940 onwards. During its years in operation, over one million people died in Auschwitz, either from murder in the gas chambers or due to starvation and disease. As the war drew to a close and the Nazis steadily lost ground to the Allied forces, they began evacuating the camps and destroying evidence of the war crimes and crimes against humanity committed there. The leader of the SS, Heinrich Himmler, ordered the evacuation of the remaining prisoners at the camp as the Soviet Red Army closed in on the area. Nearly 60,000 prisoners from Auschwitz were forced on a march toward Wodzisław Śląski (Loslau) where they would be sent to other camps; some 20,000 ended up in the Bergen-Belsen camp in Germany. However, thousands died during the evacuation on the grueling marches, leading to them being called ‘death marches’. 7,500 weak and sick prisoners remained in Auschwitz, and they were liberated by the 322nd Rifle Division of the Soviet Red Army on January 27th 1945. Auschwitz remains one of the most powerful symbols of the Holocaust and the horrific crimes committed by the Nazi regime against Jews and numerous other groups.

10 Signs You’ve Probably Caught White Guilt

1. You now acknowledge your privilege every time you talk and you only talk once you are one hundred percent certain that you aren’t taking the platform away from nearby minorities. 

2. Your every decision is now decided by minorities. You vote for whoever your minority friend is voting for, you recite whatever injustice your minority friend posts about, you eat whatever breakfast cereal your minority friend eats.

3. You have become hyperaware of how many of your friends are black or Muslim and if you are doing a good enough job being sensitive around them.

4. You have taken affirmative action and racial quotas into dating to prove you’re not a racist by spreading your legs for x amount of black and Asian guys.

5. You spent days on tumblr talking about how amazing and wonderful Moonlight is compared to La La Land.

6. You have participated in BLM or anti-Trump protests or you have made a post on tumblr along the lines of, “can’t make it to the protest thanks to my bitch racist mom but sending positive vibes to my comrades out there.” 

7. You have stopped finding white comedians funny and now find yourself laughing at everything Aziz Ansari and Leslie Jones say. 

8. You often find yourself looking down at your milky white skin and becoming so ashamed and enraged, knowing it’s the reason behind every single problem in the world. 

9. Your very first reaction to the barbaric slaughter of Westerners is: “not all Muslims” or “Islam is the religion of peace.”

10. You now feel as if it is your duty to begin educating your family - everyone from your newborn sister to your great-grandfather - about the horrific crimes white people have committed and how you must come together to start righting your evil wrongs.

Serial Killers: Exploring the Horrific Crimes of Little Known Murderers                                                                                    

Serial killers fascinates…Extreme cases even more so

From John Wayne Gacy to Jeffrey Dahmer, many of America’s most famous murderers have entered into the collective cultural consciousness. They have become pop culture figures, famous for their crimes and the violent nature of their acts. People feel compelled to understand more about these dark and twisted crimes, even when they disgust. For audiences everywhere, the very idea that these people can exist and operate in day-to-day life becomes an issue of abject terror and interest. That your neighbor, your boss, or your gas station attendant might be in the midst of a killing spree taps into something primal and very hard to imagine. It reflects the darkest side of the human psyche.

“Serial Killer” as a term can be difficult to define. Different criminal investigation units typically require two, three, or more attributable killings over a period of time before an individual can be considered to have joined the ranks of the serial killers. However, it is not really the numbers which can interest so many people and scare others. Instead, it is the often random nature of the killings. Rather than crimes of passion, crimes of financial reward, or instances when an individual has reached their end of their emotional tether, the crimes of serial killers have often been planned days, weeks, or months in advance. Targets can be random, but the killings are often planned in great detail. From cannibalism to mental health concerns, from ritualistic witchcraft to a simple interest in violence, learning what motivates these people can offer both insight and further confusion.

The cases presented in this book are extreme cases and display to what extent a serial killer can go…

Read the stories of little known serial killers that went beyond the limit of our imagination to perpetrate vile unremorseful murders in the blink of an eye.

The book details ten cases more horrifying one from the other:

• The isolated loner who butchered women and scattered their remains across Alaska
• The killer who hurled huge stones through his victim’s heads
• Colombia’s most violent serial killer
• The police investigator who was secretly a serial killer
• The woman who murdered hundreds of adopted babies
• A month-long killing spree from the former mental health patient
• The letter-writing cannibal of old New York
• The killer tried inside an iron cage for the court’s protection
• A man who earned the trust of tourists and killed them for their money
• The man whose hammer and knife created a campaign of terror

There’s a movie called “A Time to Kill” with Matthew Mcconaughey who plays an attorney defending a father who murdered two white supremacists after they brutally raped and murdered his ten-year-old daughter. To jolt the all-white jury from a very racially divided community to sympathize with this black man’s plight, Matthew’s character recounts the horrific crime in excruciating detail, and then adds one simple phrase at the end: “Now imagine she’s white.”

The media should start doing something similar to all Trump news. They should start news with, “Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton once…” and insert what Trump is doing that day. At the end of the story, pause, and say, “Editor’s Note: By “Hillary Clinton” we actually mean “Donald Trump” and by “once” we mean right now. This is something that Donald Trump is currently doing, today, as President.“

The stark contrast in reaction to news people think is about Hillary versus what they then know to be about Trump would be jarring.

A devestated Roman Polanski sits outside his home on 10050 Cielo Drive the day after the bodies of his pregnant wife, actress Sharon Tate, and four friends were discovered. They had been brutally murdered at the hands of several crazed cult members who called themselves the Family. The word ‘PIG’, written in Sharon Tate’s blood, is still visible on the front door, as is bloody footprints leading away from the horrific crime.

So I’m arguing with a guy I know over why rape jokes are not funny and are completely unacceptable. 
And I asked him would he tell a rape joke to a rape victim. He deflected, I pressed him. he said that he didn’t know anyone who he knew for a fact had been raped and it would depend on the person.
Then I said that you do not know the experiences of those around you, anyone can be a rape victim, you just don’t know, and to mock the experiences of the victims of one of the most horrific crimes there is Really Fucked Up. 
His response was literally, “Some people make rape jokes to cope.”
I pointed out that, as he has admitted he doesn’t actually know ANY rape victims, his point was weak at best. I honestly don’t know what else to say.

Shame On You, Feminists

Feminists always fall back onto their favorite line, “Just because those women have it bad, it doesn’t mean we can’t talk about our own issues,” whenever you mention their failure to support the most oppressed women on Earth. 

Okay, fine, ignore them, since you insist let’s talk about “our own issues” then, shall we? Well I’m still waiting for a single feminist to condemn the Muslim men who kidnapped and lured the 1,400 young British girls in Rotherham and subjected them to rape using knives, rape with bottles and having their tongues nailed to tables while the police and government hid and ignored these horrific crimes, or is that still not a Western feminist issue? 

Okay cool, let’s ignore that too, but I’m still waiting for a single feminist to condemn the Muslim men who committed mass sexual assaults against young women in Cologne, Germany and Stockholm, Sweden which the police and media once again covered up. Still not a Western feminist issue? 

Hm. Well I’m still waiting for a single feminist to look at France and Sweden and condemn the no-go zones for women where women are forbidden from entering these migrant-heavy areas to stop them from being attacked from Muslim men and I’m still waiting for them to condemn the rapidly increasing rape numbers in areas with overflowing refugee intakes and I’m still waiting for them to condemn the fact women are now lying about the ethnicity of their rapist in fear of sounding racist. I guess none of these are “our issues.”

We get it, you don’t want to protect Islamic women being used as slaves and slingshot target practice in the Middle East, who are you to judge their culture, right? Besides, you have your own issues to worry about. But now you don’t even want to protect your own women from being subjected to the very rape culture, violence and oppression that you insist white men being the only perpetrators of? Shame on you, feminists.

If you have a look at the plethora of feminist websites that supposedly champion women, you’re far more likely to find pieces about fat-shaming a celebrity or celebrity nudes being leaked. The only problem we have here is though, Jennifer Lawrence can defend herself and fight her own battles, these women and children being raped and attacked cannot. They have no voice as they are being hidden and silenced in fear of rocking the multicultural boat and sounding “Islamophobic.” 

Once again, shame on you feminists for picking and choosing the women who you support based on the race and religion of their attacker. 


The rooms where a developmentally disabled man was forcibly confined for 17 days in Ontario, 2009.  After making him undress and tying him up, Stanley Brown, his girlfriend Dakota Thompson, and 2 others cleared the man’s bank account to buy a TV, food, beer and marijuana.  When the money ran out, they made him call his mother to deposit some more.  
They then beat the man, burnt him with hair straighteners all over his body (including his genitals), and forced him to eat their faeces and drink their urine, all the while capturing the vile spectacle on film. They let him have a bath, only to urinate in it and fill it with cayenne pepper to further aggravate his injuries.  When police entered the apartment after responding to a breaking and entering call, the smell of his infected wounds was so severe that they initially believed that someone had died.

After being treated for toxic shock and numerous burns, the man suffered a blood clot and spent 2 months in hospital learning to walk and talk again.  Brown and Thompson were sentenced to 13 and 10 years respectively, though their sentences were later reduced to 7 apiece.  When asked why they had carried out this horrific crime, Brown simply stated:

“It seemed like he had a nicer phone than me…I’m struggling to live…and this guy’s got a really nice phone.”

anonymous asked:

I read your Winter Soldier analysis, and I have a question : you say that "There’s a reason his code name is drawn from an investigation into one of the ugliest chapters of American history." Please help a non-American understand what you meant? I mean I obviously see the Cold War reference in the movie, but from what you've written it seems like something more subtle *within* the Cold War... shit, I mean just "Cold War" seems too evident and I can't find the deeper meaning?

Oh gosh, don’t feel bad, there are plenty of Americans who have never even heard of this.

The Winter Soldier Investigation was a 1971 veteran-organized media event intended to draw attention to the war crimes that had taken place in Vietnam. Directly inspired by the exposure of the My Lai Massacre (the mass murder of over five hundred unarmed civilians by American troops) in 1969, Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW) brought together discharged servicemen from every branch of the military to discuss the atrocities they had seen and committed during their time in the war. They hoped bring these tragedies before the public eye, and to prove that American military policies led directly to the death and torment of civilians. Eventually a transcript from this conference made its way before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee during the Fullbright Hearings.  

When Ed Brubaker, the author who wrote the original Winter Soldier arc, chose the name, he wanted something that would call up both cold Siberian winters and the atrocities of war. This fit the bill.

But the term itself, the idea of “winter soldiers”, was coined by VVAW as a response to the writings of Thomas Paine, who described the men who deserted at Valley Forge during the American Revolution:

These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country, but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.

A winter soldier is someone who will warm their hands over a meager fire and weather the cold. Someone who refuses to abandon their country and its potential, no matter what the personal cost.

So how’s that for a weird little twist? According to Thomas Paine—activist, political philosopher, and revolutionary—the real winter soldier is Captain America.

hibuddy624  asked:

I'm a little confused, where did that 1 in 5 stat come from and why is it a myth? I've never managed to find anything disproving it, but I've also never found anything proving it, other than the obvious feminist and SJW propaganda

There’s usually two sources feminists will pull out in their attempt to legitimize this ridiculous myth. The first manipulation comes from this 2007 Campus Sexual Assault study. In the study itself, the researchers make it clear that the research consisted of students from just two universities. There are over 4,000 colleges and universities in the U.S and the research was confined to just two of them. Even within these two universities the response rate was low which the researchers admit to in the study. Everyone ignores these facts, choosing instead to apply this minuscule sample across all U.S. college campuses.

They also ignore the fact it was a basic online survey that took 15 minutes to complete, it was anonymous, no one’s claims were verified. Oh and the undergraduate women who participated were given Amazon gift cards.

Nineteen percent of women who responded to the survey said they had experienced some kind of sexual assault but when you look at the questions they were asked, such as if they have ever had sexual contact with someone while they were drunk or question them about events “that you think (but are not certain) happened,” then the reliability of this study to act as proof that 1 in 5 women are being raped kind of evaporates into thin air.

Even the study authors have since come out and explicitly stated that it is “inappropriate” to use their survey to make the claim that 1 in 5 women are being raped and it is not a nationally representative estimate of the prevalence of sexual assault. Yet it continues to be parroted by feminist organizations, women’s study professors and politicians who try to score brownie points by defending women in a make believe war against them.

Their other favorite source comes from a study in 2010 by the Centers for Disease Control. Newspapers everywhere carried the alarming news that this CDC Survey reported in 2010 approximately 1.3 million women were raped and an additional 12.7 million women and men were victims of sexual violence. The report was hailed for giving “a clear picture” of sexual violence in the United States.

The problem we have though is their figures go wildly against all official crime statistics. The Justice Department’s annual crime survey reports that there were about 188,000 thousand rapes and sexual assaults in 2010, the same year the CDC report was created. So where the fuck did the CDC find more than a million rapes and nearly 13 million victims of sexual violence that professional criminologists somehow overlooked in the same year?

Well the CDC found them by using a poorly constructed telephone survey with once again a low response rate and a non-representative sample of respondents. Not one single person interviewed was asked if they had been raped or sexually assaulted. Instead of such straightforward questions, the CDC determined whether the responses indicated sexual violation.

The 57% of women who the CDC projected as “rape victims” in 2010 said they experienced “alcohol or drug facilitated penetration.” What does that mean? Well any woman who had sex while intoxicated apparently constitutes rape. Participants were also asked if they had ever had sex because someone was “telling you lies” or “did you ever have sex because someone made promises about the future” or “did someone ever pressure you into sex by “showing they were unhappy?” Well any affirmative answers to these questions counted as sexual violence.

By once again using a non-representative samples and vaguely worded questions, the CDC yielded the 1 in 5 myth and mass sexual assault outcry, also known as “rape culture”. Feminists are just as manipulative and fake as their statistics. While rape is a horrific crime and rapists are rightfully despised and punished for the rest of their lives, there is simply no evidence of a national campus rape epidemic and there’s certainly no evidence that sexual violence is a “cultural norm” in 21st century America. The Middle East or North Africa on the other hand, rape is as normal as a Sunday roast.

To prevent rape and sexual assault, we need state of the art research. False and sensational statistics and claims are only getting in the way of effective action. Unfortunately, when it comes to research on sexual violence, exaggeration and bullshit aren’t the exception, they are the golden rule. If you hear about a study that shows epidemic levels of sexual violence against American women or college students or women in the military, you can be guaranteed the researchers used some version of the laughable defective CDC methodology.

This sneaky little method, known as advocacy research, allows you to easily manufacture a women’s crisis. But if you have a few brain cells floating around up there and you care about facts, you know it’s a feminist myth - all of it. It does nothing but trivializes the horrific pain and suffering of survivors and it sends valuable study and resources in the wrong direction.

Sexual violence is too serious of a matter for feminists to be hijacking it only to push a politically motivated agenda. And right now the media, politicians, rape culture activists, they are deeply invested in these fabricated and exaggerated numbers. We can only hope feminists will start taking themselves and their fight against real issues seriously again. I won’t be holding my breath.
