Pakistani teenager Aitzaz Hasan died Monday after tackling a suicide bomber trying to enter his school. By sacrificing himself, he saved the lives of the 2,000 students studying inside. Hasan’s father says, ”My son made his mother cry, but saved hundreds of mothers from crying for their children.”
This is bravery. This is selflessness. This is true courage.

Here is a beautiful picture of his grave decorated with many flowers.

- Do you like being on your own?  “Yes, I do. Of course. I’d love to love somebody seriously. But, considering what I’d expect and what would be expected of me, it seems quite difficult. I feel nobody would want to live with me. I feel daft telling you this, but it’s true (laughs).”  - You really believe that?  “You love somebody seriously involves being trapped by jealousy. It’s really hard.”
Is it nothing more than a groundless suspicion that the shadow of a certain person flickers on him who spends a whole day with a striped pajama?

Anonymous asked: what do you think would happen if two teen girls bombed or gunned down a high school? if they left journals and videos. how do you think the media would react and if they ended up killing a lot of people, do you think the massacre would become a household name? I do not plan on doing this at all, just wondering and asking blogs I think would have an opinion on this :) I do NOT condoned this behavior.

Hi anon. I was a little reluctant to answer this question last night given some of the impressionable and maladjusted young folk on this site, but then I realised it is statistically unlikely you’re actually looking for encouragement, and if you were, being told not to do it probably wouldn’t make the slightest bit of difference.

I think it depends largely on the amount of victims, the location and their age range as much as it does the shooter(s). If it happened here in the UK it would be a massive event in itself because we haven’t really seen anything along those lines aside from all of the coverage we get from the US.

If it happened in the US, I don’t think it would make that much of a difference with people normally observing the news. There’d be the usual sensationalist crap from certain news outlets but their usually is. For the experts it’d be a different story, and those true crime fans that pay attention would themselves make it an event. There’d be an outpouring of documentaries and books and obsession over the case and a lot of writers weighing in on the implications and the possible motives, that’s where the attention would be coming from.

I’ve only really seen reactions from this side of the pond though. I think we all know of someone who has, or who claims to have, a gun, but again these are usually hunting shotguns and rifles. I’ve personally never seen a gun that isn’t for hunting, aside from my time in airports and the good ‘ol terrifying US of A. We don’t see them so it’s alien to us and I don’t think we really understand it because we’re so detatched? I think the majority of people say “there’s been another school shooting in America” but they don’t really pay much attention past that point cos it happens so frequently but not to us.

So yeah, I think on the face of it, it’d be just another attack. It’d be on the news every minute of the day for a week or so, then it will die down until sentencing or until the anniversary. Among the right crowd it’d become popular just for the fact that it’s an anomaly and we’d want to study the individuals. It’s like Lanza, the Tsarnaevs, Holmes, it all happened so close together we forgot what we were mad about. Look at Ferguson now, it’s no where near as popular even after this short amount of time. John Douglas would shit bricks though.

So yeah, please don’t attack your school. The popular kids never grow up to be interesting anyway x

Another exoneration due to DNA testing   

With the consent of Tulsa District Attorney Tim Harris, a Tulsa court exonerated Michelle Murphy on Friday of the murder of her infant son based on new DNA evidence and other previously undisclosed evidence pointing to her innocence. Recent DNA testing of crime scene evidence points to an unknown male as the real perpetrator. In the course of representing Murphy, lawyers also uncovered other evidence pointing to Murphy’s innocence that was known to the prosecution at the time of trial but never disclosed to the defense.

Michelle Murphy spent over two decades in prison for the murder of her infant son. She was exonerated on the same day as the 20th anniversary of her son’s death.

Michelle was helped out by The Innocence Project, who have been aiding the majority of DNA based retrials over the last two decades. This information is found on their website:

Most of our clients are poor, forgotten, and have used up all legal avenues for relief. The hope they all have is that biological evidence from their cases still exists and can be subjected to DNA testing. All Innocence Project clients go through an extensive screening process to determine whether or not DNA testing of evidence could prove their claims of innocence. Thousands currently await our evaluation of their cases.

Please help support the Innocence Project and get these innocent men and women out of prison and off of death row.

US students will be able to shield themselves during school shootings with the latest in body armour, the Bodyguard Blanket
http://goo.gl/WwvECT
Are fucking kidding me? I have been sitting at home and constantly watching the news after the events of yesterday. For those of you who are wondering, I am a junior at REYNOLDS HIGH SCHOOL! I was there when the shooter kept running in the halls trying to open the doors and get in. I was there in the dark praying and crying while my librarian kept saying ” they’ll have to kill me before they touch my kids” I have known her for three years, her determination to keep us safe broke her heart. Seeing this, that little children need protection in school. Are we sending kids to a battlefield? I have three little brothers ranging from 5-10, and still people have the nerve to speak about the second amendment? Really? I can’t even type anymore. I’m so disgusted and frustrated. When will you realize that it’s important to have gun control? When a shooter is pointing a gun at your child? Is that when you’ll realize that guns aren’t something to be kept around. People say it’s a free country but honesty, this country is more oppressed and diseased than any other country.

Show me ONE instance where gun control and gun free zones prevented school shootings.



Let me tell you guys a story. In 1996, in a little town in Australia called Port Arthur, a gunman killed 35 and injured 23. This place was a tourist attraction, with plenty of visitors and locals going about their business. 35 people died.That’s 35 marriages, anniversaries, birthdays or uni degrees. 35 people left Port Arthur in body bags.At the time, we had a pretty conservative government, and the Prime Minister at the time (in hindsight) was kind of a dick. But within two weeks of the shooting, Howard instituted a massive reform and buyback of all firearms. 
But it must be a statistical flaw, you say, there weren’t that many massacres before 1996, right? No, WRONG. In the eighteen years leading up to Port Arthur, there had been 13 mass shootings. 
But April, you ask, this couldn’t possibly have worked could it? Wouldn’t it only have reduced the mass shootings? WRONG.Since 1996, there have been ZERO mass shootings. That’s right, ZERO. FUCKING ZILCH. There have been scattered homicides, however:
How many schools have been raided and children murdered? NONE.How many film buffs have been murdered in their seats? NONE.How many innocent lives have been lost to the barrel of a gun? NONE.
On top of this, homicides involving the use of guns, and youth suicide involving the use of guns has declined dramatically, by up to 60%
Australia, however much the environment tries to kill you, is a safe haven, and you can walk the streets with 99% assurance that you won’t fall victim to a drive by shooting.
Your move, America.

in 1987 a lone gunman killed 16 people, wounded 15 and then committed suicide. within six months the uk government passed an amendment to the firearms act effectively outlawing all high calibre, high frequency, high capacity rifles and shotguns.
in 1996 another lone gunman killed 16 children and their teacher, and then committed suicide. again within six months the uk government outlawed all handguns. special dispensation had to be issued in order to hold shooting competition as part of the 2012 olympic games, and british hopefuls had to train overseas.
you can legally own certain types of shotgun, .22 calibre rifles over a certain barrel length, and antiques. that’s it.
in the nigh-on twenty years since the uk has had one mass shooting. one. and we’re down to about 30 gun-related deaths annually.
there is not one example of gun control laws reducing mass shootings and gun-related homicide. there are dozens. it literally works every time. the usa is the anomaly not because it didn’t work but because it hasn’t tried.

The FBI caught a terrorist last week, but since he is not Muslim, you probably didn’t hear about it on the news.

Talbot is a white, radical right-wing conservative who was arrested by the FBI on charges of “attempted interference with commerce by robbery, solicitation to commit a crime of violence and possession of an explosive material.”


…
His plan was to rob banks to fund his revolution, and then also blow up mosques.

Well, since the ‘blowing up mosques’ part is more or less on the CIA’s agenda, you can see why the FBI wouldn’t want to call him a terrorist…

NCIS fans are the best. I just found a soft hippo on amazon and all of the comments are “this hippo is cute, however it doesn’t fart” and “I was really disappointed when I received my hippo and it didn’t fart”.
