If someone had a fucking cupcake on their desk, and it looked really delicious, and then some other person came along and swiped that cupcake, or dipped their finger in their icing, Society would be like “that’s fucking messed up, you douchebag, why would you do that to somebody and to their fucking cupcake?”
If somebody leaves their dog in their yard, sleeping, and in the night, a stranger takes their dog away, Society would be like “post that shit all over, we have to find this dog thief.”
If somebody left their laptop in their dorm room, and their roommate spilled beer all over it and ruined it, then refused to pay, Society would be like “what an asshole, that’s really valuable, make him pay, report him, sue him.”
What I am trying to say is this:
…We never say “you shouldn’t have left a cupcake that looked like that all alone. What was it doing there, didn’t you expect it to be eaten?”
…We never say, “Well that’s part of the risk of owning a dog, you should have just not let your dog stay outside, where everybody could see and leer and look.”
…We never say “yeah, whatever, but it’s even worse to be labelled as a laptop destroyer, like that can really harm your chances in life, and also, what was your laptop doing near his beer anyways? Keep quiet, it’s better to just let your $1000 computer go than make any waves.”
Moral of the Story:
A Cupcake has more respect than a victim of street harassment.
A dog has more freedom than a victim of rape.
A laptop has more credibility and importance than a victim of domestic violence.
Tell me again about how rape culture isn’t real.
Gretchen Carlson and Chief Bill Lee explaining their justifications for Zimmerman’s actions
I think I’m done with this case now. I’m washing my hands of it, because justice isn’t being served. Zimmerman wasn’t detained, he’s gone missing, Trayvon’s been completely dehumanized (stripped, tested for drugs/alcohol and violated for incriminating DNA while the killer roams free??) and apparently, he’s the suspect now.
Who the hell keeps the receipt? I always throw them away, sometimes I don’t even take them. iJustCan’t (via amuzed1)
Plus, he got the tea and candy from a gas station, right? Every gas station I have ever been to ASKS YOU if you’d like a receipt and more often than not, I say no. And, if he paid for it with cash, he was probably even less inclined to take a receipt.
And, fuck, even if he HAD stolen the stuff, how is thievery an excuse for murder? And how would Zimmerman even know that? Ugh, this is some bullshit. The cops are just trying to make it seem like they aren’t completely racist assholes that let a half-white man get away with murdering a young, unarmed, black boy.
What the actual fuck. The handling of this case just gets more and more ridiculous with every passing day.
Are you shitting me? Like, what? I don’t keep my receipts. In fact, if it’s a cash purchase, WHICH IT PROBABLY WAS, some stores don’t even give you a receipt. What the fuck kinda shit is this? What, if he had a bag for his candy and tea, would that be better for you, you simple bastards? How the fuck do you even? I hope you mothafuckas get uncurable syphilis.
(via kyssthis16)what the ever loving crap does this have to do w/Zimmerman’s “self defense”? Did he steal the tea & candy from Zimmerman? So he had change, but no reciept, so the ‘obvious’ conclusion is theft & not a cash sale in which a reciept was declined? Every time these chumps do or say the most absurd, disgusting thing I can think, they one-up themselves 20 minutes later. tableflip.gif whiteboypunch.gif (via velocicrafter)
“the dead suspect”
They referred to Trayvon as “the dead suspect. That should tell you all you need to know. From the moment they stepped on the scene, they already had it in their mind that Trayvon was the suspect and Zimmerman was the victim. They had absolutely no intention of trying to prove otherwise.
fuck this. fuck this. FUCK. THIS.
The DOJ probe should find all of them to be accessories after the fact. I mean, look at this bullshit they were aching to let Zimmerman go free just trying to find every angle, any glimmer of hope to let his child murdering ass go free.
“the dead suspect”
“the dead suspect”
“THE DEAD SUSPECT”
…because asking the gas station attendant about trayvon was clearly too much trouble
