Tony Stark just barely convincing Ross to give him and Natasha a chance to fix things instead of going after his fellow Avengers with “boys and bullets.”

I need to talk about this scene, and how it illustrates why I have genuine BAFFLEMENT that people want to convince me that Tony Stark cares about no one but himself.

“There stood the famous detective in his long Belstaff, holding tightly onto the little pathologist in her white lab coat. Her feet continued to dangle some inches above the ground as he held her in place. Neither of their faces were clearly visible, as they were both pressed into the other’s neck. Not that it even mattered. Faces clear or not, it wasn’t exactly a mystery as to what they were feeling in that moment.”

BBC confirms: Tom Hardy ‘arrests fleeing motorbike thief' 

“Actor Tom Hardy apprehended a man who had allegedly stolen a motorbike in London, police have said. The Hollywood star stepped in after two teenagers on the bike crashed into a car in Richmond, south-west London, on Sunday afternoon. They ran off before one was was grabbed by the Mad Max and Taboo star and the other was arrested by a police officer. Two 16-year-olds have been arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle, police said.

A Richmond Police spokesman said: “We can confirm that there were two people on a stolen moped that went through a red light and crashed into another vehicle. The males ran off and one was detained by Tom Hardy.”

“Both suspects were initially taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.”

A Metropolitan Police spokesman later clarified the stolen vehicle was a motorbike and one of the arrested teenagers was riding pillion. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-39703528

Update: A spokesperson for Metropolitan police relayed the following statement to EW: “In an earlier Twitter ‘direct message’ reply to a BBC reporter, a local officer named an individual as having detained a male in connection with the below incident. The arresting officer has confirmed that a number of members of the public assisted police at the scene. We do not believe that it is correct to say that any one individual detained the suspect. We are not aware of any citizen’s arrest. It is, of course, Met policy not to name informants or witnesses. We regret that the name of any individual was released via a message to the BBC.” http://ew.com/news/2017/04/25/tom-hardy-teens-stolen-motorbike-lodon/

Get your story straight, Met police… ;)

BREAKING: Fatalities reported in Orlando workplace shooting in

  • Multiple fatalities have been reported in a shooting at a business in suburban Orlando, Florida, CNN reported on Monday morning, citing information from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. 
  • Police are on the scene of the incident, which reportedly took place at a business headquarters in an industrial area.
  • The sheriff’s office reportedly told local CNN affiliate WFTV that the situation is “contained and stable.” This is a developing story (6/5/17 9:45 AM)

coronalthoughtejection  asked:

Ok, let us assume that literal cultists have summoned a literal monstrosity, and literal monstrosity has literally torn them to literal pieces, and then vacates the premises. Morning shift walks in, sees the carnage, calls the police. How soon would the forensics team get there after the responding officers? How would they respond to 4-5 bodies torn to pieces? Where would they start, what would they do?

Alright @ coronalthoughtejection . First off- wow that is a lot to take in just as a mental image. Unfortunately my response will also be based on some assumptions and varies greatly depending on where exactly in the world your cultists are summoning monsters.

In a backwoods, small town kind of setting, a forensics team may take up to 12 hours to arrive. Even considering the fact that there would be some hussle due to the eviscerated bodies, you could still be looking at 6 or more hours. The scene would not be empty during this wait period though- the responding departments officers would begin to document and may even begin evidence collection without the Forensic Team. Many small police departments, like what would be responding if this happened in an out of the way place, have officers trained to collect evidence properly. I have no doubt in my mind that the big city forensic team would be called in to assist for a 5 body piece together. In a large, metropolitan city, response time would likely be much faster. Especially if its 5 eviscerated corpses. More than likely within the hour if possible. In both cases, the first thing that is done is that the scene would be secured. Before I forget, no one can do anything to the scene until it has been released by the medical examiner (in Canada anyways. Not sure about other countries).

Once the big boys in the forensic unit arrive, the lead investigator/ officer in charge would decide the best way to fully document and examine the scene. Photographs and written notes are always always ALWAYS taken first, before anything within the confines of the scene are touched. It is generally easier to do this in indoor scenes than outdoor scenes. My bias for summoning monsters makes me think decrepit basement, but its up to you as a writer/ thinker of these kinds of scenarios where exactly the scene takes place. Keep in mind for outdoor scenes that weather is a bitch and will ruin every piece of evidence it can be it with rain, wind or snow.

After the documentation of the scene is completed, evidence would be collected from most important to least important. This is a sort of judgement call on the investigators part, but usually goes from DNA (which is easily degraded or contaminated) to things like footwear impressions and fingerprints (which will usually remain unless purposefully disturbed by the rain).

After that the peeps back in the laboratory will try and get everyone’s bits back together as best they can to identify how many victims there are. Investigators will try and figure out how these people relate to one another, and how they came to be ripped to shreds.

The rest is up for you to decide. Does the monster rip any more people apart? Can the police identify this monster? Can they be swayed to believe in the existence of a supernatural creature, or is it up to the religious studies major to put the pieces together for the police (pun so intended). A lot of case work is following leads, and so it is up to you to figure out what the police will find, what that will tell them, and how quickly they can put the resources together to stop a literal monstrosity.

Happy Creating!

A truck drove into pedestrians on a major shopping and tourist street in Stockholm and then crashed into an upscale department store on Friday, causing multiple injuries and fatalities. Police have not confirmed the number of deaths, but Swedish media outlets are reporting that at least three people were killed.

Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven says one person has been arrested in connection with the attack, The Associated Press reports. However, Swedish police reportedly contradicted that, saying no one was in custody.

Löfven also says there are indications the truck hit pedestrians as “a terror attack,” Reuters says. But Radio Sweden reports that the Swedish Security Service says there is no confirmation the incident was terrorism.
