John Stamos does not age…
Robin Williams - Jack
RIP Robin… the world is sure gonna miss you.
There are few things in life that infuriate me more than when something happens to an individual or group of individuals and people are sharing their condolences and trying to spread peace and love and someone else comes in and says, “That’s nothing compared to what’s going on overseas!” or, “1000’s of people die every day of (x)”, or “Who cares, don’t you know ‘blah, blah, blah’ is happening!?”
This idea that people seem to have that individual suffering should not exist just because something horrible is happening on a global level is the biggest bunch of shit I’ve ever heard.
Thousands of people will die today from starvation and that is absolutely horrible. Thousands of individuals are being murdered and that is absolutely horrible… but don’t think for one minute that the father, son, husband, mother, daughter, wife, brother, sister, aunt, uncle… etc… who dies in a car wreck, or dies of a heart attack, or dies of old age in their sleep means anything less to one individual than any of those thousands of individuals meant to their loved ones.
Every death is a tragedy to someone, somewhere out there. Some deaths are recognized and some are not, but each is felt by SOMEBODY and everyone of those somebodies has the right to mourn their loss.
So the next time you feel like typing one of those phrases up above, think about what you’re really telling the other person…
A 400-pound asthmatic Staten Island dad died Thursday after a cop put him in a chokehold and other officers appeared to slam his head against the sidewalk, video of the incident shows.
“I can’t breathe! I can’t breathe!” Eric Garner, 43, repeatedly screamed after at least five NYPD officers took him down in front of a Tompkinsville beauty supply store when he balked at being handcuffed.
Within moments Garner, a married father of six children with two grandchildren, stopped struggling and appeared to be unconscious as police called paramedics to the scene. An angry crowd gathered, some recording with smartphones.
“When I kissed my husband this morning, I never thought it would be for the last time,” Garner’s wife, Esaw, told the Daily News.
She got no details from police until after she had gone to the hospital to identify his body, she said.
“I saw him with his eyes wide open and I said, ‘Babe, don’t leave me, I need you.’ But he was already gone,” she said.
and people wonder why black people don’t trust or have any love for cops. they murdered this man. this black man. and for what? fucking cigarettes. yea, WE’RE the fucking problem.
this is so heartbreaking fuck the five o
This is so hard to watch and horrifying :( It’s not just a black thing though. Three officers killed a young man with down syndrome in Maryland in Feb 2013 when they pinned him to the ground because he didn’t want to leave a movie theater and his caregiver had gone to buy him another ticket. They ruled his death a homicide and stated that he died from asphyxiation and the officers STILL walked.
The most horrifying part to me is that the officers here, TRAINED in first aid and taught to save lives, stood by after wrestling this man down in a chokehold, causing him to be unable to breathe, and then did NOTHING to attempt to help him but to roll him on his side… They said he went into cardiac arrest at the scene and couldn’t breathe? Did they even attempt CPR?
