Around the Deep End

If you don't believe in even the possibility of magic, you'll never find it.

People are giving Wilson money to thank him for killing an unarmed black teenager. Please report this to GoFundMe, as it violates their Terms of Service and they get 5% of the tens of thousands of dollars being donated. Click to report.

This is my message, in case you want to copy and paste:

Your Terms of Service prohibit “items that promote… hate, racial intolerance, or the financial exploitation of a crime.” Take a look at the comments that come with the donations on this page and tell me that doesn’t violate your terms. “Support Officer Wilson” is a thin veil for people rewarding Wilson for killing a black kid.

My house is strange. There’s me, i’m bisexual, and I live with my gay brother and my asexual fiance.
My brother and I have the same taste in boys, but i’m really the only one who likes girls, and my fiance is generally just really excited about dragons.

So, I’m just going to join in on the Tucker discussion for the last episode. Because I actually full on agree with his actions. Tucker pulled the data transfer before it completed and insisted on the future cube use to get them out of there. Then when they got back an invisible control officer tagged along to attempt to kill Caboose and Carolina reopened her wound to save him. Now, if this attacker was close enough to get pulled along with the transport, then they were definitely close enough to pull off the attack when the rest of the group was still distracted by the rest of the attack and downloading and so Caboose would still have gotten attacked and might not have gotten saved in time.

So that’s me siding with Tucker in the last episode.

And because this was a direct parallel with Tucker getting Rogers and Cunningham killed, I’m going to talk about that mission too. Looking at that mission again knowing what we know now (aka Felix’s extreme asshole betrayal dickbaggery) there are some details we have to relook at. Tucker did go off mission to get the intel he downloaded, which was an extreme risk. But Cunningham was killed just as the download finished: Locus killing him despite the fact that Cunningham was dressed in Fed gear with no proof of his identify. That implies that Locus was informed (and gee! I wonder who could have done that?). And then Felix set off the explosives with Rogers still in the base (with Tucker insisting to wait: “what about Rogers?”), but, as we were shown in the betrayal monologue, him still warning Locus.

So, yes, Tucker went off mission riskily, but there’s still the question of if Felix wasn’t a backstabbing fucknozzle, would it still have resulted in his two members’ deaths? Tucker is blaming himself enough. I’m going to latch myself onto him to protect him from others blaming him.

Bah. This is now the third time I’ve had to replace my Miss Representation dvd. I will admit it’s my fault because I lend it out and if anyone that watches it asks to borrow it to loan it to someone else I will always eagerly say yes because I think it’s one of the many documentaries that need to be viewed. But at the same time, damn. Start taking responsibility for borrowing people’s things.

If you want to talk about the big picture, the big picture does not begin at these protests. The big picture begins the decades and decades of police harassing and police brutality in that community. If you want to talk about the big picture, then start at the beginning of the story. Don’t start with these images that you’re seeing right now and saying “well, they have to do this”… No, they helped create this from the decades and decades of abuse.

Violence continues to erupt in Ferguson, Mo., more than a week after the fatal shooting of unarmed teen Michael Brown by policeman Darren Wilson. The 18-year-old’s family demands justice be brought to their son with the arrest of the six-year veteran officer. Protesters have clashed with authorities as control over security shifted from local police to St. Louis County officers to the Missouri State Highway Patrol. Gov. Jay Nixon has since called in the Missouri National Guard. And the Brown family continues to prepare for the teenager’s funeral arrangements amid completion of three separate autopsies.
