Next school shooting -

A far-right Missouri organization has launched a disturbing map alerting followers to “hot spots” of so-called “woke” activity in the state.

As of Monday, the 12 map locations all concerned educational institutions, and linked to articles, videos and tweets trashing things like critical race theory and diversity training. The information named at least 12 specific schools or school districts — particularly chilling in light of America’s mounting toll of school mass shootings.

The Liberty Alliance is “committed to fighting back against the woke agenda permeating all across Missouri,” reads a statement on the conservative group’s website next to a state map peppered with spots.

Reminder: Texas Has More Intense Laws Restricting Dildos Than Assault Rifles

...

 

But in states like Texas, where gun restrictions were loosened in the last two years as restrictions on things like abortions have increased, one particular law on the books comes up every few years as a particularly stark (if utterly absurd) sign of the state of legislation in the state:

 

There are more intense laws restricting the number of sex toys — more specifically “obscene devices… designed or marketed as useful primarily for the stimulation of human genital organs,”

per section 43.23 of Texas’ penal code  — a person can own than there are restrictions on automatic firearms.

 

...

 

 

 

So, as many AR-15s but only 6 dildos.

 

Yup, that's Texas...

The nature of the job has changed, certainly. 

The only people who should be required to lay down their lives in the course of duty are the armed forces.

Job for the army... They were dealing with a lethal maniac. Their caution was understandable.

You give someone a gun to use in the course of their duties then you´re telling them and they´re accepting that they may get shot at and they may have to shoot someone.

Funny that many of them seem to readily accept the shooting someone part of it.

 

Try reading this...

 

Uvalde Police Didn’t Save Lives Because That’s Not What Police Do (theintercept.com)

"According to one Texas Department of Public Safety lieutenant interviewed by local news, some officers did run into the school — but only to grab their own children."

 

"According to the chilling firsthand account of a fourth grader in the room, cops told children to yell “if you need help”; when one little girl did, the gunman immediately shot her."

 

This is their training manual for an active shooter...

Why are those same police dressed like this...

No there are many police heroes in real life but you see fit to tarnish them by comparing these ones with them.

You seem to have a hardon for these particular police.

Just another holiday weekend -

 

Quote

 

At least 10 people were wounded in a mass shooting in South Carolina on Monday night — one of numerous mass shootings that unfolded across the U.S. over Memorial Day weekend.

Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg said on Tuesday that nearly a dozen people were shot during the gunfire late Monday, with four in critical condition.

The mass shooting was one of at least 14 such incidents throughout the country over the holiday weekend, according to the Gun Violence Archive, which tracks such incidents. The group defines mass shootings as “four or more people” shot or killed in one incident, excluding the shooter.

From Saturday until Monday, at least 60 people were reported to have been injured in mass shootings, while nine others were killed, Gun Violence Archive reported. Holiday weekends, especially during the summer, are often associated with spikes in gun violence; some of the shootings from the past weekend occurred at parties.

A jury on Wednesday said it has reached a verdict in Johnny Depp’s libel lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard, who testified that Depp physically and sexually assaulted her on multiple occasions.

The jury also has reached a verdict regarding a $100 million counterclaim Heard filed against Depp. Heard said she was defamed when Depp’s lawyer called her abuse allegations a hoax.

The verdicts are expected to be read inside the Virginia court at 3 p.m. Wednesday. The seven-person civil jury had to come to a unanimous decision to reach each verdict. They deliberated for about 12 hours over three days.

 

 

So one hour or so.

Innocent question: who reads the verdict? A member of the jury? And if so- how is this person chosen?

They both won actually.  Johnny won on all counts, 10,350,000 and Amber won on one count, 2,000,000
