normal police

  • 2016 beginning: somebody gets called out for stealing bones from makeshift cemetary for witch ceremony
  • 2016 end: somebody gets sent their best friends severed toe from 10 years ago so they can embalm it and use it as a necklace charm
  • 2017 beginning: somebody gets called out for stealing a guys body from a hospital morgue and chopping it up to use for their weird feminist art project
  • 2017 end: somebody makes a post about their family being slaughtered and begging tumblr for help and instead of finding out where they live and calling their local police like normal people do the tumblr community bands together to become armchair detectives and successfully solve the murder but plot twist: it was OP who actually did it

Human LeoSagi with pining Usagi on their first totally not awkward date after a year and a half of long-distance relationship.

So… I totally blame @call-me-the-cooky-one ‘s fic for getting me to start shipping these two nerds.

Zen in progress
As you can see in this close up, he’s rolling his hair up, not doing the “salut” thing… (some people just got it in the wrong way).
I’ll have to adjust his hand a bit more since my friend offered to help me with this pose, this piece will take much longer than I expected .-.

Anyway, to complete this series, I did some researches about the Korean Police uniforms, and I decided to put the characters in different styles.
707’s uniforms is the normal police’s, Jumin’s is the chief’s
Zen’s is taken from Gangnam Style lol

How Liberalism Infects Movement Building

It never fails. Every time there is critical resistance, an uprising and continued unrest people get dragged back to compliance (with permits) under the rhetoric of being peaceful or nonviolent. The movement gets dragged out of the street to sit attentively at the feet of the oppressors with speakers that tell us change will come if we are calm (and peaceful).  Nevermind the normalized police escort, or the “security team”. We are just following the rules, nothing to see here.

Rhetoric about resistance and direct action becomes meaningless, lost in the symbolism of marching for civic change, not structure change. Movement managers try to make the movement mainstream-popular, inviting celebrities and business leaders to come forward, while at the same time pushing out radical elements that released pressure valves to begin with. If not directly, through terrible tactical choices that alienate people (like working with the police who are critically engaged in counter insurgency and developing profiles on agitators to undermine the movement).

Never mind, that working with the city and police legitimizes those avenues, while making it easier for the police to knowingly divide and attack groups that take nonpermitted action or respond to their conditions without the permission of the state. Is this what solidarity looks like?

Instead of hearing about what groups are doing to sustain themselves during these uprisings, we hear more and more about demands. Police reforms that usually come with dangerous baggage, more technology and funding for the police. But the movement is so pressured by popular media and civic leaders to clarify its goals, policy change becomes a priority before much needed discussions can happen. Before policy change can be challenged not as a goal, but maybe a tactic to gain concessions in a larger fight to abolish the infrastructure that makes racial oppression profitable. 

But once the movement is focused on policy change, containment is practically complete.  And the agitators who were able to explore what it means to act autonomously for liberation, who were harassed and attacked by the police, are cast aside as unreasonable. Ungovernable.

Unity becomes language to gather behind and solidarity is reserved for those who will declare their nonviolence or tolerance for police collaboration. Never mind that nonviolence never actually was not violent- it just tolerates violence in the hopes of receiving change. It accepts violence as a means of determining justice- because if someone is constantly violated don’t they deserve to be saved? 

The cops are killing people, but pacifism will kill the movement every time. We say “first do no harm” but liberalism does harm to the movement every time. People pull permits in the name of pacifism, but invite the police. How does this make sense?

What is liberalism? There are many ways people might define or apply it. But for now i’ll start with, peace for the sake of appearing peaceful regardless of whether the conditions are peaceful or not. Appealing to and supporting state violence (the government) to restore “peace” whether the conditions are peaceful or not. Working with the enemy to minimize the affects of oppression, while never supporting those looking to prevent or abolish it.

Redirecting the outrage and energy of people away from their own communities and into organizations that work with and support the state (and it’s violence). Taking real anger and pain, and neutralizing it so that it does not actually threaten the economic and social conditions that produced it. Believing that the state is the only way we will be free. Controlling how other actors behave so that the state will make you free. And finally, using peace as a reason to dismiss and silence people seeking critical movement building dialogue to prevent the co-optation of the movement. Demanding peace without first acknowledging the conflict is dismissive and heartbreaking. Same with #notallcops rhetoric.

The popular media finds it much easier to latch onto movement building for reform because the hierarchical political structure wants people to resign power over to representatives and allow those representatives to determine clear goals. And just like that the movement becomes less about supporting action and solidarity and more about appealing to the dominant white (and liberal) gaze for approval

But what if the goals aren’t clear? What if supporting black rage and insurrection means that all of it will have to fall? Especially the privileges and comforts gained by whites and non-black POC under the capitalist system built on genocide and slavery. The economy of wagery and servitude that makes (black) people poor and deprives them of resources. The system of governance and gender violence that pits (black) community against each other based on sexuality, gender and patriarchy power. The lack of empowerment and shared decision making.  The lack of access to resources for those who are disabled by society. The political system itself, who carries on war after war here and abroad without the consent of the governed. The way problems are handled, policed and result in mass imprisonment and violence for poor, brown and black communities of color. Yes, all of it must fall.

It’s not simple. But to build this movement we cannot oversimplify it. We cannot ignore that non-black and white people benefit from seeing this movement silenced or neutralized. And we can’t pretend that it doesn’t make whites uncomfortable to think about a black revolution. This might be a large reason why people in the movement fall back on learned liberalism. Because people, particularly people of color, have been taught that to assimilate in Amerikan culture means to behave, which has become synonymous with being “reasonable” or deferring to white models of power. But this is not reasonable, co-optation will fail and white models of power must fall.

fanfic: the afternoon itch

Title: the afternoon itch 

Rating: M 

Summary: Korra gets the afternoon itch. 

A/N: A stupid fic I wrote a stupid amount of time ago. 

Korra gets the afternoon itch during the second hour of council meetings.

Councilman Wong’s proposition for a new trade route in the West is blurred white noise, ticking into the third hour. Korra has to steady herself, forcing breathing exercises through the front of her teeth as quietly as she can so she doesn’t start openly salivating at the thought of Mako’s cock in her mouth.

anonymous asked:

For super!Au, in general, would superhero comics be like propoganda being used like "See, look how much these people suffer from having superpowered people betcha their lives would be easier if people who couldn't level entire cities could exist" but super folks who work for equality uses them for empowerment, even if under disguise. So like there'd be comics with villains being supers and the heroes being normal people in the police force or army, but super folks make their own comics (1/2)

I never got the second part of this message but I absolutely adore this idea and think it should be canon now! They make all sorts of anti-super propaganda posters, movies, and books… why not comics? When the very first superhero comic is released anonymously, there is a gigantic scandal because “what?? what do you mean this person uses their powers to SAVE people? that’s ridiculous!”

Context: We are playing a homebrew Touhou game and our DM has multiple incidents taking place at the same time so the “party” has to somehow help solving them. After a couple of sessions my character (a Two Tailed Kitsune) made a barrier around the human town (that’s totally forbiden) and has been branded a criminal, now she can die normally, the Shinseigumi (Police like Samurais) now is searching for her.
Last session this happend…

DM: Well Guys how you will start your day?

Me: I’ll try to wake up without a spear pointed at my face

DM: Don’t worry about spears pointed at your face…

*i sighed in relief*

DM: …they use swords

*i held my breath for a sec and everyone else laughed*

After that my character woke normally and wandered around thinking a way to attack a church (part of an incident), somehow evading most problems thanks to her ability of “manipulating” solitude.

Wheelchair - July 29th, 2016 - 10:30am
  • Nick: You need to rest, Carrots.
  • Judy: Niiiiiiick! I don't wanna stay in here all day! I'll go crazy!
  • Nick: Fine. But you know what you have to do if you wanna leave. We have to take the wheelchair.
  • Judy: I don't want to. People will think I'm weak.
  • Nick: No they won't. It's normal for police officers to get hurt once in a while.
  • Judy: Not me! *pouts*
  • Nick: Fine then. Stay here. But I'm going to go get some breakfast. I'm sure you can manage a bowl of cereal here. I've been hanging around all morning and I need some actual food. I'll be back later. *headed out the door*
  • Judy: ...nnh...uh...um... Nick, wait!
  • Nick: *stops, smirking* Yeah?
  • Judy: *mumbles* I'll take the stupid wheelchair.
Status Effects Headcanons

Because everyone always acknowledges things like elemental magic as existing but idk I so very rarely see status effects put into use. Which is a shame because they are super interesting. At least to me. So. Some largely ff7/8-based headcanons because those are two worlds in which magic is like a thing you carry rather than a secret mystical force only certain people can use, making it much more normalized in culture.

Police/security carrying standard issue Slow and Stop to apprehend suspects. Stop however, has a much lower success rate than Slow, so its not usualy used in a chase, but more when someone has already been caught and is putting up a fight.

Insomniacs being fucking sick of people telling them “Why don’t you just use Sleep?” because for the last time Sleep induced only a very light, non-REM sleep, easily broken, doesn’t have a 100% success rate, and is even less likely to work on people whose brains are already wired not to fall under, so that shit will only leave you awake at 4am tired and grumpy and also feeling sick with magic exhaustion.

Underground fighting rings for both people and monsters/animals using Berserk to make fights bloodier and more entertaining.

Frog as the bane of all farmers, gardeners, hikers, and elementary schools.

Misguided disability awareness campaigns run by abled people casting Blind on people so they can “””experience””” what its like to go through life without vision.

The moment in everyone’s childhood when they finally realize that much like how Serial killers do not kill Cereal, and how vanishing cream does not make things turn invisible, Silence does not make it so you can’t talk. Just so that you can’t use magic. The world becomes a slightly sadder place.

Confuse spells being modified and developed into a magical sort of hallucinogen. 

Parents at the end of their ropes getting Slow to use on their toddler going through the “suddenly turn and run off in the opposite direction so you have to catch them” phase. 

Weird homebrew remedies for various status effects of varying efficiency. 

Urban Legends about a statue in town that was really being a person who was Petrified.

Actual Petrify being much less likely to turn your whole body to stone than to start slowly calcifying the area it hit under you apply proper treatment. A bit like frostbite.

“Zombie” is a bit of a misnomer, as it does not make one undead, but rather makes one feel like the living dead, green about the gills and nauseous, and very dangerous since it causes most healing spells/items to have a toxic effect, but luckily very rare.

Assassins specifically trained in using “untraceable” Poison/Bio spells, that pinpoint certain areas of the brain and kill instantly, or very slowly, mimicking other natural illnesses.

Actual Malboros, actually existing like holy fuck talk about a nightmare.

Seriously though, what the hell is wrong with American education..

Why is it normal that there are police officers at most schools?

Why does a teacher get the police involved when a kid doesn’t do what he says?

Why does the police officer feel the need to resort to violence to affirm his authority?

And why did the kid, correct me if I’m wrong, then get CHARGED for disturbing class?

Are your schools a prison or something? There is precisely zero need for the police to be involved anywhere in this. I mean, I can see why there would be police at the worst ghetto schools, but from everything I gathered, it’s standard procedure and quite frankly, that’s not something kids should consider normal.

so I was watching the “Civil War” trailer

and at some point they’re in Germany but…

can someone explain these uniforms to me? I mean…it’s not the normal police that’s obvious but the SEK (special operations command) wears black and has totally different helmets and everything else the police wears is blue/grayish?

the helmets look a little bit like Bundeswehr but then there wouldn’t be written “POLIZEI” on their vests

maybe I shouldn’t be thinking too hard about this…I mean what do Americans know about the German police anyway but yeah…maybe we have some special unit I didn’t know about that wears exactly these kind of uniforms and someone can enlighten me haha

THIS IS IMPORTANT

I don’t know if you already know but we have a horrible situation on South Korea.

A south korean woman,called Lee Jung Hee, was being raped and violated by her husband and a whole lot of people during 20 years, her sons, during 10 years. Her older son is in a mental hospital right now suffering from ptsd due to his father’s abuse. The younger is only 13 years old and dreams with a normal life.

The police wasn’t investigating but apparently they are now, but it’s difficult when those criminals are important people (politicians are involved). Brazilians are spreading the word on twitter all week but we don’t have enough people. One of the girls on twitter made contact with some people there and they said most of the korean population doesn’t even know about the case. Posts with lots of comments and shares are vanishing from media.

WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING!

THE BOYS ARE AMERICANS.

The only reason nothing has been done is because Korea won’t let the USA know about any of this. SPREAD THE WORD. PLEASE.

THEY NEED YOUR HELP!

Oliver is my 20 month old son (1 years old, he’ll be 2 in November), he’s had to fight for his life twice now. The first time when he was born, two months early we both almost died and I didn’t even get to hold him after he was born because I was too sick. The second time is right now, he has leukemia and he’ll go through chemotherapy for three years. My mother has ovarian, breast and now lung cancer.. She’s had cancer for as long as I can remember. My sister has heart problems and if she has a heart attack, she will die. My life is very complicated and emotional right now, we’ve been struggling with money and have been kicked out of houses. I was raped in 2013 and found out I was pregnant with Oliver, the guy that raped me ran because he was afraid of my mom and she called the police. I normally don’t make posts like this because I hate asking for things, but if you can help me in any way… Please message me. My sister is trying to come back and forth to the hospital, but we are running out of money. Please help and signal boost this, I will post pictures of Oliver and my mother later on. If you pray, please pray… If you don’t pray, please just keep my family in your thoughts.

i mean, i get the celebration but this is playing right into reactionary hands, this is allowing for the way the state brutalizes black citizens, as a policy, to be compared to a dramatic aberration from how police are normally treated. 

There’s this new video that’s circulating on the internet that shows 3 officers arresting a man in the Bronx. One of the officers is injured and was likely hit by the person they are trying to arrest. The officer repeatedly punches this man on his head. He beats him senseless. The general reaction of the commenters? “Yeah, but if you punch a cop it’s an unwritten rule that they kick the shit out of you.”

Seriously? No. Cops have the responsibility TO BE BETTER. The comments just show how fucked up the police has been since like forever. It proves that there have never been consequences for this type of behaviour. We have literally already normalized police brutality.

This is not how you treat a person. Cops should be giving the right example. The fact that the other two are not stopping him and just letting that cop punch this man on his head.. I can’t believe what I just saw.

This is not normal.
