Spread this like a damn wildfire.
17 Year old Christopher Roupe was gunned down by a police officer while answering his front door while holding a Nintendo Wii remote.
"At around 7:30 PM, young Christopher took out his Nintendo Wii controller to put on a movie.
As he was sitting down, he suddenly heard knocking on the front door.
He asked, “Who is it?” but received no response.
At that point he got up from his chair and opened the door.
To his shock, the female cop already had her gun drawn and pointed at him, according to reports.
She immediately fired a bullet into the boy’s chest and killed him, according to Renee Vance, the boy’s aunt.
The police claim that “he had a handgun.”
It was actually the boy’s small Nintendo Wii controller, says the aunt.
The officer gave him “no warning” to drop the controller before taking his life, the aunt added.
The police claimed to be at his house regarding a “probation” matter. It turns out that it had nothing to do with Christopher.
His 13-yr-old little sister heard the gun shot and ran over to the door to find her brother bleeding and crying.
The little sister held her brother and tried to comfort him as he cried in pain, according to reports.
That’s when the female cop pointed her gun at the child and said “Shut up!” according to reports, forcing the girl away.
Moments later Christopher bled to death.
Both the female officer and the officer who was with her have received “paid administrative leave” as the investigation proceeds.”

Police are already trying cover up this incident with bullshit lies.
Don’t let this just get swept under the rug.
A Wii remote in no way resembles a handgun.
This is absolutely ridiculous and disgusting
Three years since the start of the Syrian crisis, 10,000 children have died and 2.3 million people have become refugees. Seeing this little girl bear the brunt of the violence, one video second per day she grows up, is a powerful way for the issue to resonate with the public a little closer to home.
This is an advert by Save the Children, reminding us that the violence in Syria is ongoing and real. Have a look at Syria Deeply, which has helpful explainers about how the crisis began and what is happening today.

rock bottom is when youtube comments are more intelligent than your government
You beautiful human beings.
I love this because the top comment is someone being brave enough to state their beliefs but accept others and the bottom one disagrees but accepts the top ones dicisions.
Society gone right for once.
gross bigots patting each other on the back and being all “well, I think gays are nasty, but I’m okay with them marrying I guess, as long as other people do the work of making it legal” “I think your opinion that gays are nasty is extremely valuable and I’m so proud that you have the courage to voice it” does not make them “beautiful human beings”
The top comment states that, while they find that Homosexuality is wrong, see a problem with homosexual marriage being illegal. They make the distinction between their views and what’s correct. Sure they think homosexuality is wrong, but they don’t stand for homosexual marriage being illegal. The second comments states that while they disagree with the the first commentator’s view on homosexuality, they praise them for making the distinction of their own personal views and the rights of people. They are not being bigoted, they are being sensible, unlike you. What have you done recently to legalize gay marriage? Posting on tumblr doesn’t count as actively doing something.
A conversation between a Raven and a Snowy Owl.
It looks like the raven really wants the owl to leave and is trying to intimidate it, but the owl doesn’t care because it knows the raven is all bark and no bite. Or all squawk and no peck. Erm…
Actually, it looks more like the raven is curious about the funny bird and wants to sit next to it, and the owl doesn’t wanna be friends :[ The raven’s body language isn’t aggressive at all — it’s backing down appropriately when the owl displays aggression. Notice the way it’s careful to draw back every time it gets too close to the owl. This is an animal that’s trying to establish it isn’t a threat.
Keep in mind there’s a huge intellect disparity here — ravens exhibit novel tool use and complex communication, whereas owls aren’t even as smart as ducks. We’re sort of trained to view crows and ravens as villainous, but really they’re very playful animals.
"HI YOU’RE PRETTY WANNA BE FRIENDS??"
This is so cute ‘cause I can imagine the crow being the talkative, friendly one and he’s just like “hi gosh wow you’re pretty I’ve never seen a white crow before! How’d ya get your feathers so white? Do you eat a lot of marshmallows? I eat a lot of marshmallows! This human lady feeds me marshmallows—” and on and on and the owl’s probably just like “What no go away”

So I don’t think those free condoms universities hand out suck as much as guys say they do.
Okay, but seriously. If you’re ever considering sexy times with a guy and he tells you that he can’t wear a condom there is a 100.3% chance that he is a liar, and you should definitely not have sex with him. Don’t have sex with liars. Have sex with a cute honest people that bring you ice cream the next morning. Liars do not bring you ice cream. And if they do it’s ice cream made of lies. Ice cream made of lies is very emotionally unfulfilling. Don’t trust liars or their disease-ridden ice cream.
that was the best safe-sex talk ever.
Why I am suspicious of those who say they got pregnant because a condom “broke”…
HAVE ANY OF YOU EVER USED A CONDOM. HAVE ANY OF YOU HAD SEX YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT CONDOMS. SHUT THE FUCK UP. I’m sick of this shit. Just because a condom has a tensile force high enough to withstand inflation does not mean it can comfortably fit any penis. No one wants latex literally stretched against a boner like it is in this pic. A condom that is too small causes added friction which can lead to the condom tearing. If someone tells you it is too small, you LISTEN. YOU DO NOT HAVE RAW SEX WITH THEM. THAT IS NOT WHAT I AM SAYING. YOU GO BUY A MAGNUM. There are even sizes above that. SO NO THERE IS NO EXCUSE TO SAY THAT A PERSON CANNOT WEAR ANY CONDOMS BUT THERE ARE PLENTY OF PEOPLE WHO DO NOT FIT IN CERTAIN SIZES. And whoever the fuck said they don’t believe condoms break is literally fucking stupid as hell. You didn’t even try to think you slut shaming ignorant ass. Condoms do not break from things not fitting in them. They break due to frictional forces without sufficient lubricant and air bubbles trapped in the reservoir tip that push through the latex upon ejaculation. Proper application requires that the tip be pinched to remove this air while it is rolled down the shaft. Very few people know this due to the rampant lack of appropriate sex ed. Proper condom application technique and education is crucial to effective birth control and STI protection. So before you go spouting your ignorant crap, how bout you think about your penised partner and the overall function of a condom and try to spread real education rather than shaming people.
Thank you for articulating what most cannot even comprehend. <3
A proudly gay man gets offended when a coworker raises some complaints with his behavior around the office.
Sometimes things aren’t the way we think they are.
how did I see that coming
also this is how I imagine tumblr in cubicles, at least the parts where some people are overly sexual about everything and assume when someone doesn’t like their stuff their homophobic, or transfobic or any other phobic
still though it’s a great video
i fucking love this video
Holy shit key and peele why are you so amazing?
Their stuff is actually reeeeal smart.
omg the end
So, long story short (for people who haven’t seen it yet):
A year ago, I was friends with an SJW. We were good friends. I usually just ignored the SJW bullshit that she spouted, and she respected that I didn’t want to get involved. We had plenty of other things to talk about, and we’d been friends for most of my time on tumblr (she was one of my first followers after I started using my main for personal over roleplay posting), and in October of 2012, I was comfortable giving her my cell phone number. By December, we were exchanging addresses (although I gave her my mother’s P.O. box; I’ve always been cautious about my address).
About Christmas of 2012, we got into an argument. She had posted something about all pornography being degrading to women. I disagreed with her; there is plenty of pornography that is consensual, and while it’s unrealistic, it’s not degrading. We argued for several posts, until she started yelling and I decided I wasn’t going to be lectured. I told her to text me when she calmed down, and we didn’t speak until just before New Year’s Eve.
She finally texted me, apologized for getting angry, we agreed to disagree, and the matter was dropped. A few days later, I got a weird anon on my personal blog, saying things like “I’m sorry for what I did to you, please forgive me, I want to be in your life again”. I deleted it. I kept getting similar messages on my Facebook and in my email. I only ever responded to the emails. They were from the man who raped me when I was younger. I told him several times that he was not welcome in my life, and to please stop contacting me. Eventually the messages got threatening, and I started deleting them without reading.
While this was going on, I ran into him a few times. Now, he still lives in the same town, and it’s a small town. The first couple of times, I didn’t think anything of it (apart from one panic attack when he showed up at Rocky). I was texting my friend, and I mentioned it to her. She assured me that it was just coincidence.
Until he started showing up everywhere I went. I started getting unmarked mail at my house, threatening me with death and rape. I was getting death threats and anons telling me to commit suicide in my tumblr inbox. I would get weird phone calls and texts in the middle of the night telling me that I was going to be killed.
I was sick all the time. I would black out for hours, and wake up the next morning to find that I’d relapsed and cut. I was falling back into bulimic behaviors. I was suicidal, and I was terrified. I made my mother check my email. I made my girlfriend answer the phone for unknown numbers, and check every text before I would read it. I lost ten pounds in a month, and there were days that I couldn’t bring myself to get out of bed. I all but moved in with my girlfriend because I was too afraid to be at my house.
All the while, I was texting my friend. I was telling her how scared I was, how much I wanted to die. She never really responded; she would just change the subject. Meanwhile, I was cutting and purging. I wasn’t sleeping, I was barely eating, and I wouldn’t leave my girlfriend’s house except to go to Valley. Those were the only places I felt safe. And even then, I was taking four or five anxiety pills a day, and usually just throwing them back up and taking more. I was in the hospital several times because I was dehydrated, since I couldn’t keep anything down.
Finally, in June of last year, it stopped. By that point, it had been six months of absolute terror. I had a bad panic attack because I’d gotten the last and worst email from him, and I couldn’t breathe and had chest pains. I was texting my friend from the ER, and she was being strangely uncaring about it. Finally she just said “leave me alone, we aren’t friends anymore, and I don’t care if you die”. I got a text from a mutual friend a few days later informing me that she had posted all of my personal info, given my contact info to my rapist, and was telling my rapist everything I told her, which included pretty much my every move. She deleted the post with my info not long after I found out, and she deleted her blog shortly after that.
Even to this day, I’m dealing with the aftermath of her actions. I get sick when I think about her. I don’t understand how she could do something so awful, and over such a stupid argument. I had to make new email accounts, set the highest privacy settings on Facebook, and change my tumblr url several times in quick succession to ensure that he wasn’t able to find me. I refuse to use my real name anywhere but Facebook. I lived with my girlfriend until November, when I moved in with my mom after my surgery. I’m still afraid to go near my dad’s house without several people with me and my dad at home. And almost nobody knows where I live now, even among my offline friends that I’ve known for years. My therapist is still trying to sort out the mess she made of my life.
For a while, I was angry. I wanted revenge. But I never could bring myself to do it. And I finally realized that I shouldn’t stoop to her level. If I did the same thing to her, then I was no better than her. And it wasn’t worth it.
That’s why I’m so against doxxing. Because I’ve been there, and I don’t want to see anyone else suffer the way I suffered. It’s just not worth it to endanger someone else just because you’re upset. You’ll get over it. The person being doxxed may end up dead. And no one’s life is worth satisfying your petty revenge fantasy.
