This is unconscionable. They do not own the records. Their refusal to release them only makes them look guilty. And what we’ve heard so far about them turning Duncan away because he had no insurance, even though he had a 103 degree fever, and the nurses who contracted Ebola, their credibility is already questioned.
I am just stunned. Having not been in toy stores for awhile, I had no idea something like this was on the shelves.
Good God, what were they thinking?? An action figure that deals in drugs and violence? It’s bad enough this show was on the air so children could see it, now they’re glorifying it by an action figure? What has the world come to?
My mind is reeling I can’t even type a half-way competent blog right now.
The judge actually said:
‘I am of the view that a non-custodial sentence would send a wrong message to the community,’’ Masipa said after summarizing parts of the case and explaining why she reached her decision. ‘‘On the other hand, a long sentence would not be appropriate either as it would lack the element of mercy.’’
Where was Pistorius’ concern for mercy for Reeva? She was frightened by him and was probably going to leave him. Classic domestic violence scenario where the woman is in the most danger when attempting to leave an abusive relationship.
I see no concern for Reeva in this piece–no quote from her parents or family members…only ones sympathetic to Pistorius.
See, folks, if you’re white and famous, you can get away with murder. Hell, you don’t even have to be famous.
If Pistorius were black, ala the NFL players, he would not be getting the sympathy he is now.
I just can’t believe this. 5 freaking years for poor little Oscar.
Meanwhile, I pulled up Reeva’s bio on Wikipedia, and even then, they’re taking jabs at her. At the bottom, they have a blurb about another murder–a black woman–whom did not receive the same amount of press. So…we should ignore what happened to Reeva? Blame the press for the “white woman syndrome”, not Reeva. White women may get the press, but little is done to correct the culture that promotes violence against women.
DN! had a piece today on Anita Sarkeesian, the feminist whom has spoken out on the sexism in the gaming industry, amid serious death threats. When you see the “games” it will sicken you on the graphic hatred. People don’t understand how much the media influences violence, and these games perpetuate the rape culture.
Sarkessian was supposed to speak at a university, when she was told of the death threats. When she requested extra security because of the law that allows for concealing weapons, she was told that the death threats were nothing new and they were not going to extend any further protection for her.
