> NEW: Texas law enforcement officials at a press conference say they believe that all the children that were shot and killed in Uvalde, TX were shot by Salvador Ramos and not anyone else [i.e. law enforcement].
Ok now I'm like 70% sure this is not true
This did not even cross my mind until they said anything
 
@Unionhawk Seriously, why would they feel the need to say that?
 
They did seem pretty busy arresting parents outside standing around in a circle all tacticool
What with the whole no duty to protect and everything from 2005 or whenever that decision came down
 
12:55 AM
I think I have more of an affirmative duty to protect when supervising divers than the police do ever actually

that's a good point
 
 
being a police officer is dangerous, 576 died last year
I am being informed that 444 of those died of covid
 
I'm reduced to gifs out of incredulity

Check this out:
That's the ballot (100% mail-in) to replace Congressman Don Young
I know two of the names well enough to have an opinion: Sarah Palin and Al Gross.

Man fatally shot by police near Toronto elementary school; SIU says BB gun recovered toronto.ctvnews.ca/…
I'm so confused
So he a had BB gun assault rifle, police got a call and responded, since folks thought it was real.
The thing I'm confused by is this:
> A spokesperson from the Toronto Police Association confirmed two TPS officers were transported to hospital following the incident, but did not sustain physical injuries. No additional injuries were reported.
> When asked if there was an exchange of gunshots between police and the man, Denette said the available information does not indicate that the man fired at officers.
How were these officers injuries? I'm so confused.
 
@Wipqozn Fuck, I hadn't seen the update that it was a BB gun. Still maybe don't go carrying a thing that can be easily confused for a real firearm, especially near a school, and especially especially after a mass shooting at a school. Unless you have a death wish (but still, please don't, seek help instead of self harm).
@Jolenealaska What's the format of the Alaskan primary (or primaries)? Is it like California where the top two of any party go on the ballot for the general election?

@Unionhawk Honestly, that was one of THE most fucked up SCOTUS decisions in the past 5 decades or so, maybe even ever
I think the only ones that might top is were Citizens United and probably the upcoming Roe v. Wade mess

I think the general is going to be ranked choice.
