@TimStone came hereto post this
Your veins will be so bored
 
This is immensely funny though
 
The perfect twitter death
Especially after that gun violence thing they did
(For those not extremely online, a few days ago these same guys temporarily disabled their accounts, ostensibly as a way to symbolize gun violence...)

Supreme Court orders new manslaughter trial for accused in death of Cindy Gladue
https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/gladue-supreme-court-indigenous-barton-trial-sexual-consent-1.5139137
> An Ontario trucker accused of killing Cindy Gladue during a night of rough sex will face a new trial for manslaughter in a case that unleashed public outrage over how the Indigenous victim was treated by Canada's criminal justice system.
> The court found that the justice system failed to protect Gladue, and that so-called "rape shield" laws were not followed at Barton's trial, when the jury heard evidence of Gladue's past sexual activities before holding a separate hearing.
> The jury found Barton not guilty of first-degree murder and manslaughter. In June 2017, the Alberta Court of Appeal overturned Barton's acquittal and ordered a new trial.
 
not guilty? wtf
that seems surprising coming from a jury too
Glad he's getting retried
Consensual sex or not, I don't think anyone consents to dying
If it really was an accident I feel bad for both of them but he still should have gotten manslaughter
 
@HalfEmpty I don't know the details, but my first instinct would be that the jury heard that Gladue was promiscuous, and therefore the rough sex was consensual, so the death was accidental and not manslaughter, since no other crime was committed.
 
Said he was found not guilty of manslaughter though
It sounds like the sex was consensual, but that doesn't mean you get to kill somebody
 
Ash
Which is a stupid shitty slut shaming pile of absolute unfettered bullshit
 
Oh you don't get manslaughter if it's an accident?
 
Ash
1:58 PM
@HalfEmpty up to what point though? Consent is revokable.
 
@HalfEmpty Exactly.
 
Well... maybe it really was an accident. It's pretty sad either way
Dude should have known better too, if you're being rough enough to kill somebody you should probably be aware of that
I think he should get manslaughter
I think it's pretty hard to accidentally kill somebody
Also once she started bleeding why didn't they seek help?
Seems fishy, he could have called 911
 
In general, manslaughter is killing another person during the commission of a crime when the intent of the crime doesn't involve murder.
 
@MBraedley like drunk driving?
Oh okay
 
@HalfEmpty which is why that particular crime is called vehicular manslaughter.
 
2:02 PM
@Ash It's probably impossible to know at this point, unfortunately
 
So in this case, the other crime would be rape or sexual assault.
 
Presumably she would have tried to get him to stop after she started BLEEDING so my guess is that he didn't agree
Pretty sad story...
> The study, which was published April 10 in Physical Review Fluids, states that the sound pressure exceeded 270 decibels. That's louder than a rocket launch at takeoff. Cnet observes that if this sound is experienced directly, it will not only destroy your eardrums, but it has the potential to rupture your heart and lungs.

@Wipqozn Lucky Canadians!

@puzzlepiece87 I liked that, thank you!
 
looks on the tl oh cool more "it is good that the racists are allowed to come to your city" awesome
every time
please do not come at me with "I don't like it either, BUT" by the way thanks
 
@Ash I figure anyone who has made a spouse or close friend online will love that one :)

@HalfEmpty huhmm... isn't sound above a certain number of decibels literally just a shockwave and no longer a sound?
Oooh that's in water
That makes sense
Still an absolute limit but it's basically that
 
7:07 PM
@Kevin That limit is dependent on the ambient atmospheric pressure, AFAIK.
 
Yeah true but it's like <200 in air
 
Oh, the sound is being produced in water. Yeah, that might not be as spectacular as it sounds (pun not intended). Underwater speakers can cavitate at high enough frequencies and amplitudes, which is basically the same as boiling (although the water immediately re-condenses).
