Another case where execution is viewed as the most appropriate response to a black person interacting with the police.
I can understand a rogue cop(s). I get that. They aren’t every cop. The issue that brings it to all cops is when the department gets behind said rogue cop(s) and applauds their actions, giving the impression that indeed, execution was totally how interactions are supposed to go down. You never hear a department come out and say, “these guys made a mistake.” This is where my outrage stems from: the admission that execution without due process is indeed how such heinous crimes as jaywalking, selling loose cigarettes, and cosplaying should be punished.
My best friend is getting married soon and I was trying to think of something cool to get him. I decided on a custom engraved bottle of Blue Label since Johnnie Walker is his favorite drink anyways. I was originally going to go with a pre-baked message of “TO YOUR STEPS DOWN THE AISLE AND BEYOND” but then I thought, that’s way too sappy. What’s something he’d really like?
So I missed my flight to goto Boston and drive my mom home. The person at the desk was like, “all you have to do is board.” I thought they’d call my row. Turns out no, she meant I needed to walk on the plane.
Anyways the plane leaves at 11:40. At like 11:34 this lady runs up and finds out she missed her plane. She starts screaming and cursing. Eventually she resigns herself to her fate and is just going crazy, bawling and streaming tears. I don’t get it. Like, I understand a quick, “fuck!” or something, but what’s done is done. There is no way you’re going to cry your ass back through time and change things like some sissy version of the Terminator. It’s over. You can’t change anything. Get over it. What’s done is done.
