Dumb ass kid convicted for Swatting, 25 to life

econs:

THAT’S WHAT YOU FUCKING GET 

MAKE A GOD DAMN EXAMPLE OUT OF THIS KID

Yes! Though I kind of hate how the video put. “Will you child be labeled a terrorist, FOR PLAYING VIDEO GAMES?”

OMG SAVE THE CHILDREN!!1!!!!!111

Pfft, no that kid acted like an pissbaby in a video game setting, but that doesn’t not make him a pissbaby.

Good that the jerk was convicted, but let’s not pretend the overuse of swat team raids by police is not itself in part to blame for the injuries to the victim in this case.  It shouldn’t have been possible for a young man to lead authorities around by the nose and direct them with potentially lethal force however he wished with a single prank call to begin with.

And the article goes to some length to point out the danger to swat team members, but frankly lethally repelling unannounced armed home invaders is exactly what the gun lobby would have us keep loaded firearms in our house for to begin with.  You cannot in good conscience encourage the mindset that police need to use strong arm tactics due to the danger they are in when those tactics themselves are putting police in greater danger to begin with.

Games Workshop Pre-Orders Warhammer: The End TImes

Home

The End Times cometh and with them them the epic and awesome looking Montarchs of the Conclave of Death.

We would love to hear what you guys think and to get the take on The End Times from some of our more Fantasy-minded Allies.

For more rumours about The End Times, as well as some Dark Eldar whisperings, check out this week’s Darth Sebious’ News Holocron here.

The End Times

marrrkusss:

Well folks, the End Times have begun!

For those of you who are scratching your heads wondering what I’m on about, I’m talking about the event that has, today, begun to shake up the Warhammer miniatures universe. The Games Workshop site has, for the past week, been revelling in the return of Nagash, the supreme necromancer.

It’s pretty, don’t you think? I love those winds of Chaos swirling around the base right there, and the whole swirling ghosts and whatnot, it looks just awesome! At £65, however, I’ve been giving some serious thought as to whether I want to get it. So for now, I’m leaving the model until the initial excitement dies down. 

I walked into my local GW shop this morning, around five minutes after they had opened, and they’d already sold two boxes, which was pretty impressive!

Nagash is a legend among Warhammer lore, with power almost unparalleled in the whole universe. Due to all of his experimentations, he is well over 15ft tall, which I suppose justifies the massive miniature. He also wields the Mortis blade, a truly legendary sword. 

Along with Nagash, GW have today announced three Mortarchs that are like his lieutenants: Neferata, Mannfred von Carstein, and Arkhan the Black.

These three really serve to emphasize what GW are now doing with the Fantasy line here, tying up both the Tomb Kings with the Vampire Counts to create one army if players so choose. I’m not a player of the tabletop game (well, yet, anyway), but I do love the lore of this world. Nagash once ruled over the land of the Tomb Kings, and created the army in order to conquer the world, while the Vampire Counts are pupils of Nagash. So it’s a nice dovetailing of the world, though from reading around online, some folks have expressed something of a “was this really necessary?” attitude. 

But anyway, I’m finding it all quite interesting, as I watch from the sidelines, and am thinking I might actually get myself one of these Mortarchs, if not Nagash himself, also! But time will tell on that…

The irony of this situation is massive enough to develop its own gravitational field. These harassers want Sarkeesian to stop talking about misogyny in video games. So they unleash horrifying misogyny on Sarkeesian herself. To, I guess, make the point that video games are just fine? That misogyny in games is having no broader cultural effect? That there is no problem here? Because this kind of behavior is normal? If I wasn’t half convinced that the men harassing Sarkeesian weren’t in fact actual trolls — like, the kind that live under bridges with only rocks for friends — I would wonder how they’d feel if their mom or girlfriend or wife was receiving the same threats.

Video Game Misogynists Argue That Misogyny In Video Games Is Not A Problem By Misogynistically Harassing A Woman, Because That’s Logical | xoJane (via lampfaced)

No. They want her to stop talking about misogyny in video games because they want women to stop gaming. They want people to stop caring about misogyny in video games because everyone agrees that women just shouldn’t game. They want women out of gaming culture so they don’t have to think about women as people. They want to have a space where no one will complain about misogyny because they don’t see it as a problem, and they think women won’t receive these kinds of threats if they just shut up and bake cookies and let men do the talking.

(via violsva)

This “how they’d feel if their mom…” line of thinking is such bullshit because you know what? They might not like the abuse the woman in question was receiving but they would agree with it. They would tell the woman in question to be quieter, to step back, to just leave it to them. I’ve heard them do/say exactly those things. “Well, you brought in on yourself.” “You know how it is.” “I wouldn’t say it that way but they’re right.” 

These “trolls” are enjoying it. They are having fun. This is fantasyland for them. They have an excuse, a justification that has brought them social approval within their circle, to unleash the things they spend the rest of their lives not saying about women. They don’t want Sarkeesian to stop. They want to beat her. Her stopping is not good enough. Her consenting to quit is not good enough. They want to make her stop. They want to win.

It is the abrogation of her consent and the pain they cause her—and, by proxy, those who relate to her—that brings them the most pleasure. They do not get the same thrill if she walks away. It is not enough for her to shut up. They have to ignore her “no”, silence her voice, cause her pain, and ensure that others like her know they’ve done it without any consequence in order to get their full thrill.

If that sounds sociopathic, abusive, rape-y, and worse to you—then you’re getting the idea.

You know what really gets to me, and I’m sure many know this, is the blatant abuse and betrayal that white photogs display in POC countries. Every time a photo has gotten famous like this photo did in history, the actual focus of the photo is left behind in the dust while the white photog is hailed as a hero for displaying the ills of that country. He didn’t even fucking ask her name. He didn’t ask for 17 years. The world knew nothing about her life and her story. He captured one moment that made him famous and she got nothing.
Every time I see this photo, I seethe.

Star Trek fans are oppressed too. I went into a job interview wearing Spock ears and they LAUGHED at me and told me to go home!

You should see what Christians get treated to.  I crucified myself in a job interview once, and I nearly died.
