Alive, Fire, and Fucking: Rami Ismail @tha_rami A 44-year old man with severe mental issues attacked my former high school in the Netherland:s today Since he did not have access to guns, he brought knives, and was scared away by students throwing their backpacks at him The man & students are now all getting help as needed. 9:24 AM-06 Mar 18 from Hilversum, Nederland 22.3K Retweets 57.7K Likes Rami Ismail @tha_rami I have no data on whether the man plays violent videogames, as of yet the Dutch government has not called to arm all our teachers or give them tactical combat training, and the National Backpack Association has not made a statement, although admittedly l'm not sure it exists. 9:29 AM.06 Mar 18 from Hilversum, Nederland 2,166 Retweets 12.6K Likes arcaneloquence: gayahithwen: dstriple: No one got hurt in this attack. Because the attacker did not use a weapon that can mow down people in seconds… it also didn’t happen in the US. What’s that about “people will find a way if they really want to kill someone”? No, they won’t. Not having easy access to accurate, deadly, ranged weapons is an effective deterrent to a lot of potentially violent people. I also just want to call attention to a very important phrase: “The man students are now all getting help as needed.” Like…over here, the first cry is always “terrorist!” if a shooter (or any attacker) is POC and “mentally ill… TnT” if he’s white. Mentally ill and neurodivergent people get thrown across the altar of gun violence to shield the real causes, like toxic masculinity and toxic whiteness. But in this case, while there’s an acknowledgment that the attacker was mentally ill, the reaction is to help him find appropriate treatment rather than to scapegoat mental illness, as a monolith, and falsely claim that it causes most of our gun violence. A sick man got violent, for whatever reason, and because he didn’t have access to fucking assault weapons, both he and his victims (for lack of a better term, since these kids seemed to handle it fairly alright) are alive to work their way through it in a healthier manner, hopefully averting future similar incidents. Contrast that with the typical U.S. model of “white man opens fire, kills 15, then kills self” and look at the stark difference.

incorrect processing of student data by institutions during normal operations; student account data changes not applied or processed correctly; ineligibility for a Pell Grant (e.g., validity of high school attended, history of degrees obtained); satisfactory academic progress not achieved; and incorrectly calculated return records by institutions returning Title IV student aid funds.”<br/><br/><a href="http://federalsafetynet.com/tanf.html" title="">TSNF</a><br/>The Health and Human Services Agency has not estimated TANF improper payments because the program is administered by the various states that distribute federal funds and the states have not performed improper payment reviews.  A 15% estimate was used for purposes of estimating total welfare improper payments.  Improper payments are most likely above 15% based on the complexities off the program and a review of available performance data including two reviews shown below:  </p> <ul><li><span>In FY 2007 <a href="http://www.hhs.gov/asl/testify/2008/01/t20080130a.html" title="">HHS conducted a pilot review</a> of TANF cash assistance payments in three states.  The error rates for the pilots ranged from 11.5% to 40%.  </span></li> <li><span>An <a href="http://oig.hhs.gov/oas/reports/region4/40703520.htm" title="">inspector general’s report </a>of Ohio TANF payments in 2007 found a 21.1% improper payment rate.</span></li> </ul><p><br/><a href="http://federalsafetynet.com/child-nutrition.html" title="">Child Nutrition </a><br/>Child Nutrition is made up of the school lunch, breakfast and after school food programs.  GAO estimates that in 2011 the school lunch program had a 16% improper payment rate and the school breakfast program had a 25% improper payment rate.  Based on these rates an 18% overall child nutrition improper payment rate was used for purposes of estimating total welfare improper payments. The GAO describes the errors as follows:  school lunch – “Verification errors related to benefit calculation error, duplicate payments, insufficient documentation, and fraud or misrepresentation by program participants or others”.  School breakfast – “Authentication and administrative errors, including authenticating the accuracy of qualifying for program specific requirements, criteria, or conditions.”<br/><br/><a href="http://federalsafetynet.com/head-start-and-child-care.html" title="">Headstart </a><br/>GAO reports a 1.7% improper payment rate for 2010.  <br/><br/><a href="http://federalsafetynet.com/job-training.html" title="">Job training </a><br/>No data is available for the multitude of programs that make up job training.  A 1% figure was used as a conservative estimate.  <br/><br/><a href="http://federalsafetynet.com/wic.html" title="">WIC </a><br/>GAO reports a 1.2% improper payment rate for 2010.  <br/><br/><a href="http://federalsafetynet.com/head-start-and-child-care.html" title="">Child Care </a><br/>GAO reports a 13.3% improper payment rate for 2010.  <br/><br/><a href="http://federalsafetynet.com/liheap.html" title="">LIHEAP</a><br/>A full improper payment report has not been issued by the Health and Human Services Agency regarding LIHEAP.  GAO reports up to 9% of LIHEAP payments had problems associated with them, in a review of payments made in 7 states<a title="">[v]</a>.  Some of the errors were simple omissions but some were as severe as fraud.  A 5% estimate was used for purposes of estimating total welfare improper payments. <br/><br/><a href="http://federalsafetynet.com/lifeline-obama-phone.html" title="">Lifeline </a><br/>An improper payment report has not been issued by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regarding the lifeline program.  The program is very complex and is administered by telecommunication companies.  Up to 41% of payments were problematic as reported by the <a href="http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424127887323511804578296001368122888" title="">Wall Street Journal</a>:  “A review of five top recipients of Lifeline support conducted by the FCC for the Journal showed that 41% of their more than six million subscribers either couldn’t demonstrate their eligibility or didn’t respond to requests for certification.”  A 20% estimate was used for purposes of estimating total welfare improper payments. <br/><br/>Medicaid<br/>OMB estimates a 7.1% improper payment rate for 2012.  GAO describes the errors as follows:  “The majority of the FY 2012 errors were a result of cases reviewed for eligibility that were either not eligible or their eligibility status could not be determined, thus they were considered errors.  The most common cause of cases in error for the Medicaid FFS medical review was insufficient documentation.”</p></blockquote> <p>You got schooled, son.</p>
