Apparently some old lady ended up shooting like three kids who ran up on her
Killed one of em, other two are in bad shape.
Can’t even say I’m mad but the thing I’m afraid of is some kids ended up getting shot just because someone is twitchy and on edge
Yeah see, I saw some shit like that coming .
no one’s surprised by it I just hope the fuckboys stop
What exactly is this “knockout game”? My parents were talking about it earlier but I’m confused. All I know is people upload shit to Youtube.
supposedly the knockout game (or polar bear hunting, I’ve seen it called that too) is a game where black teens try to knock out a white person
In a perfect world, I’d be all for this game but given the state of police and panicky white people hunting us down and shooting us in the fucking faces for asking for HELP, this is a decidedly BAD idea and I’m about to text my brother and tell him to NOT participate in that fuckery AT ALL.
There is no such thing as a knockout game. It’s been debunked. This is like that urban legend about gang initiations that involve flashing your headlights at a stranger & getting killed.
During World War One, 10% of all casualties were civilians.
During World War Two, the number of civilian deaths rose to 50%.
During the Vietnam War, 70% of all casualties were civilians.
In the war in Iraq, civilians account for up to 90% of all deaths."

"In San Francisco last year, a man stabbed a woman in the face and arm after she didn’t respond positively to his sexually harassing her on the street.
In Bradenton, Fla., a man shot a high school senior to death after she and her friends refused to perform oral sex at his request.
In Chicago, a scared 15-year-old was hit by a car and died after she tried escaping from harassers on a bus.
Again, in Chicago, a man grabbed a 19-year-old walking on a public thoroughfare, pulled her onto a gangway and assaulted her.
In Savannah, Georgia, a woman was walking alone at night and three men approached her. She ignored them, but they pushed her to the ground and sexually assaulted her.
In Manhattan, a 29-year-old pregnant woman was killed when men catcalling from a van drove onto the sidewalk and hit her and her friend.
Last week, a runner in California — a woman — was stopped and asked, by a strange man in a car, if she wanted a ride. When she declined he ran her over twice."
A US couple has been convicted of the manslaughter of a teenage girl they adopted from Ethiopia.
Larry and Carri Williams, of Washington state, starved and beat Hana Williams until she died in the backyard of their home in May 2011.
They were also convicted of the first-degree assault of a younger boy they had adopted from Ethiopia.
Stuff like this makes me sick! Don’t adopt children if you’re going to treat them worst than pets! Why? Just..why?
And why is it always African kids??
(Tw: race motivated shooting, child shooting, graphic picture of child in recovery) White Dallas man shoots 8-year-old black boy in the face as he plays ‘tag’
An 8-year-old African-American boy in Texas is struggling to recover after being shot in the face by a 46-year-old white man, but authorities have not been able to determine a motive.
Dallas police said that Donald Maiden Jr., who had just celebrated his 8th birthday on Sunday, was playing tag outside his apartment complex on Tuesday. According to his grandmother, Maiden ran inside to get some toys and was shot as came back outside.
Witnesses told police that 46-year-old Brian Cloninger had been seen waiving a handgun at people prior to the shooting, The Dallas Morning News reported.
Police reports said that Cloninger was seen standing beside his pickup truck as the boy was bleeding, and a witness asked him if he shot the boy.
“Yes I shot that kid,” Cloninger reportedly said.
Maiden’s mother, Latamarin Locklin, recalled the aftermath of the shooting to KTVT on Thursday.
“When he ran in I just screamed,” she said. “His mouth was just hanging off and it was just a big hole… I just threw him on the couch and laid him in my arms and put pressure on his mouth with the towel.”
Locklin couldn’t understand why anyone would shoot her child “out of the blue.”
Maiden was in critical but stable condition as of Thursday. He still needed a breathing tube and had a plate in his jaw. He he could wink and nod to communicate, but could not talk. The boy was expected to have more surgeries after swelling from the most-recent surgeries goes down.
Cloninger was charged with injury to a child, and was being held $2.2 million dollar bond.
