Game of Thrones, Life, and Tumblr: shmemson: vernacular-manslaughter: octospider: Gwendoline Christie is the actress for Brienne of Tarth in Game of Thrones. She stands at 6 feet 3 inches tall and took swordfighting, horseriding, and stagefighting lessons for her part, as well as gaining 14 pounds of muscle, to accurately portray Brienne. (x) She was also terrified of cutting her hair because she’d spent her life believing it was one of the only things that would make people see her as feminine despite her height. In an interview with TV Guide she said: I struggled for a long time with [cutting] my hair, but then I’m grateful for the opportunity to realize that femininity doesn’t have to come from hair or any of those traditional female archetypes of appearance, So, that’s been exciting actually. I can’t speak with any kind of authority whatsoever because I’m just an actor and I only have my opinions, but I do think it’s really refreshing to have a woman depicted on a mainstream TV show that doesn’t obey typical aesthetics of females and the way they have been portrayed in the past. And I’m really excited to be portraying one of those women. And I hope that her popularity signals a greater expansion of people’s views about men and women and that gender types can be more flexible. She’s so so so so great. I think she’s just incredible.

He’s 6 years old ffs…I can’t More infuriating info: The boy is autistic The boy and his father were in a truck The father stopped the vehicle and raised his arms to show he was unarmed ONE OF THE ARRESTED OFFICERS WAS ACTIVELY STALKING THE FATHER’S FIANCE They are trying to claim self defense AND claim they didn’t know there was a child in the truck They fired “no less than 18 rounds” into the truck The father was hit but still alive. The boy ended up being shot in the head multiple times. There is bodycam footage of the incident and every official/lawyer that has seen and spoken on it has called it horrific. 50% of all police violence victims are autistic or mentally ill. If an autistic person starts screaming or can’t look a cop in the eyes, they use that as an excuse to shoot. I hope Black Lives Matter starts talking about that, too. Police violence hurts the mentally ill a lot and of course that also means black autistic / mentally ill kids are getting hurt and killed. Ableism is deadly. I agree with the sentiments above, I just want to give an update here since Tumblr doesn’t do timestamps. The shooting was in 2015. Stafford was found guilty of manslaughter and is serving 40 years. Greenhouse pleaded guilty to negligent homicide and malfeasance in office and is serving 7 years total. Not enough but at least there was some semblance of justice done. Fucking hell.

Facebook, Memes, and Party: Washington State Man Arrested and Charged After Raping A Young Woman As She Died From Overdose @balleralert Washington State Man Arrested and Charged After Raping A Young Woman As She Died From Overdose - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A Washington State man is facing a slew of charges for raping a young woman as she died from an overdose. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to PEOPLE, the incident occurred earlier this month at a party, where 18-year-old Alyssa Mae Noceda snorted a line of crushed Percocet pills before she ingested a “dab” of liquid THC that she received from the 19-year-old suspect, Brian Roberto Varela. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Within less than a minute, Varela said Noceda passed out on his bed. According to the arrest warrant, as Noceda died in his room, Varela texted a group of his co-workers about his situation with pictures, saying “LOL I think she OD’d, still breathing, I’m smashing her to pass the time.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Varela then used the young woman’s finger to unlock her phone and post a message on her Snapchat to suggest she had run away. He then took a nap next to Noceda’s lifeless body, just before clocking in for a double-shift at Dairy Queen, where he disclosed more details about his night with Noceda. “She died having sex with me,” he told his co-workers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, the co-workers quickly informed officials about Varela’s situation, as they linked Noceda’s name to her worried mother’s Facebook page. After gathering the information, officials had enough probable cause for an arrest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They then went to Varela’s home, where they found Noceda’s lifeless body stuffed in a plastic crate in his bedroom. The 19-year-old was then arrested and charged with rape, manslaughter, and homicide by controlled substance with a $500,000 bond for each charge.

Arguing, Dating, and Life: Louisiana Man Faces Life In Prison For Killing Girlfriend's Convicted Molester, Says He's "Not Sorry" @balleralert Louisiana Man Faces Life In Prison For Killing Girlfriend’s Convicted Molester, Says He’s “Not Sorry” – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Thursday, a Louisiana man was found guilty on charges of second-degree murder after he admitted to killing the man who molested his girlfriend. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, the incident occurred in July 2015. Brittany Monk, the girlfriend, testified in court that she and her boyfriend, Jace Crehan, broke into the convicted molester’s trailer and tried to scare him. However, things took a turn for the worse after she sprayed cologne in Robert Noce Jr.’s face. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As she stood before the court, Monk said she told Noce, who was convicted of sexually assaulting Monk for nine years, that he ruined her life. She said her boyfriend then instructed her to get a knife, to which she complied, retrieving the “biggest” knife she could find. Crehan then used the knife to stab Noce repeatedly, just before wrapping a belt around Noce’s neck, using his foot to pull it tighter. After the struggle, the two threw Noce’s body in a 55-gallon container and threw the knife in a lake. Days later, Daily News reports, Crehan admitted to the murder, as he believed the justice system “failed” his girlfriend. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The incident occurred just days after Noce pleaded no contest to sexually molesting Monk while he was dating her mother. However, Crehan said he was “not sorry” for his actions, in fact, he revealed that he felt “a lot better.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although Crehan’s attorney attempted to argue that his actions were in passion, prosecutors said they were “vigilante” justice, adding that, “We do not live in a country where we as a society are allowed to take the law into our own hands and do justice.” As a result, a jury found Crehan guilty of second-degree murder, he is now facing life in prison. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Monk, on the other hand, pleaded guilty to manslaughter earlier this year and is facing 40 years in prison.

Memes, Money, and Police: Girlfriend of Philando Castile Reaches $800,000 Settlement For Emotional Distress and False Arrest @balleralert Girlfriend of Philando Castile Reaches $800,000 Settlement For Emotional Distress and False Arrest – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Nearly 17 months after PhilandoCastile was gunned down by St. Anthony police officer Jeronimo Yanez, his girlfriend, who live-streamed the traffic stop murder, has been granted an $800,000 settlement in the wake of his death. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, DiamondReynolds will receive $675,000 from the Minnesota city where Castile was shot, as well as an additional $125,000 from the city of Roseville and the League of Minnesota Cities Insurance Trust. A portion of the money will be held in a trust for her 4-year-old daughter, who witnessed the brutal murder on July 6, 2016. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although the agreement still needs to be approved by the court, the settlement will resolve Reynolds’ claims of emotional distress and false arrest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “While no amount of money can change what happened, bring Philando back, or erase the pain that my daughter and I continue to suffer, I do hope that closing this chapter will allow us to get our lives back and move forward,” Reynolds said in a statement. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, the settlement comes just months after Castile’s mother settled for more than $2 million in a wrongful death suit of her son. The settlement also comes just months after Yanez, who shot Castile several times after he informed the officer that he had a firearm, was found not guilty of second-degree manslaughter.

Club, cnn.com, and College: NEVER CONFUSE EDUCATION WITH INTELLIGENCE THIS PRISON DEBATE TEAM WENT UPAGAINST THEEREETHOUCHTPROJECTCOM THE PRESTIGIOUS HARVARD DEBATE TEAM... AND WON! New York inmates defeat Harvard debate team Story highlights The Eastern New York Correctional Facility's debate team has also beaten West Point The debate team is part of the Bard Prison Initiative, which has 300 inmates enrolled (CNN)In a debate between Harvard College students and those from any other college, some might guess that the Harvard students would win. And if the other side was a group of inmates at a maximum-security prison? Maybe even more so. That would be a mistake. Inmates from the Eastern New York Correctional Facility defeated the prestigious Harvard debate team in mid-September as part of the Bard Prison Initiative, a program run by Bard College to provide college education to qualifying prisoners, according to the Wall Street Journal. If you knew the prison debate club's record, you might have voted for the inmates. They've defeated a nationally ranked team from the University of Vermont and the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York. (They lost a rematch against West Point, and it's become something of a rivalry.) The prison club had invited the Harvard College Debating Union to participate. Inmates had to defend a point of view with which they fiercely disagreed, a common practice in debate competition: "Resolved: Public schools in the United States should have the ability to deny enrollment to undocumented students." After the debate, Carlos Polanco told the Wall Street Journal that he would never want to keep a child from attending school but that he was grateful for his chance to attend Bard College in prison. "We have been graced with opportunity," said Polanco, 31, who is in prison for manslaughter. "They make us believe in ourselves." The Harvard club seemed to take the loss gracefully. "Three members of the HCDU had the privilege of competing against members of the Bard Prison Initiative's debate program," the group posted on its Facebook page. "There are few teams we are prouder of having lost a debate to than the phenomenally intelligent and articulate team we faced this weekend, and we are incredibly thankful to Bard and the Eastern https:-www.google.com-amp-s-amp.cnn.com-cnn-2015-10-07-living-harvard-deba

Head, Life, and Party: QSearch I have to disagree with part or what you said. Siding with the cop does NOT mean you think Philando's life didn't matter. Just like siding with Philando doesn't mean you hate cops. Those are both pretty simplistic statements. First let me say I do not think that cop should have been a cop to begin with and I don't think he should be a cop after this. A cop with even a slight level of experience would not have reacted in this way and would have likely deescalated rather than pulled his weapon. What I do think, however, is that he was justified in so much that he feared for his life and the jury agreed. Did it have to happen? No! It was sad and should have never happened. But, does that mean either party was wrong? No. It's one of those paradoxical moments where something tragic happened and neither party was likely in the wrong 2 hours ago Like Reply <p>“He had a completely irrational fear that lead him to shoot an innocent man several times for no reason. Does that mean he was wrong?”</p> <p>Uh I’m gonna go with “yes”.</p> <p>I’m not saying the officer had malicious intent. I can easily believe he really was scared. But I do believe you should be held accountable for your actions especially when those actions senselessly end a life. That’s why we have a manslaughter charge. It doesn’t require malicious intent, just careless actions resulting in death. We can’t just keep excusing cops losing their head and killing people just because they say “I feared for my life”. And you guys know that I’m no cop hater. I believe some high-profile police shootings were justified. But this was not one of them and I’m tired of seeing this wishy-washy bullshit from people who are afraid to admit that cops can ever be in the wrong.</p>
