@eldrichtTerror for 99% of what cops do what you really want is a social worker or a crossing guard or a free car repair. we could have on call public security without armed racists patrolling the streets 24/7 & locking people up in labor camps.

Some dude landed a 50-50 grind on a flipped cop car in Philly yesterday

Let's talk about electromagnetic interference and trunked radio systems, often used by police, fire, and EMS. Unfortunately, some of these systems have critical flaws.

No particular reason to be talking about this now, of course, but I'm bored.

I'm repeating this question mostly because I know I'll be talking to my parents tomorrow, but: has there actually been any "looting"? All I've seen is police brutality but I also don't watch television news

today, the police ran over a semi-peaceful crowd (facebook.com/juliacaldwell1/po) and maced the city council (see below)

mind you these were peaceful.

after this i dont wanna hear any shit from you lib guys gatekeeping how protests work, especially when youre not in it to begin with. no matter if youre peaceful or not, they will harm you and possibly kill you. this is not the fucking time for that shit.

no justice, no peace. fucking remember that until its etched into your brain

lmao same people who were screaming about how unjust covid lockdowns were are now suddenly big fans of curfews huh

Sincere question: for all the pearl-clutching there's been over "looting," have there actually been documented cases of people using this protest as an excuse to steal televisions and shit? I've seen a lot of video of peaceful protesters getting pepper sprayed and precisely zero photos of looters and arsonists.

If you were playing a druid, would you find this Wild Shape character sheet useful? What might make it better? (I have a different variant especially for moon druids.)

To my surprise, The Hand You're Dealt was featured as the Free PDF of the Week in yesterday's DM's Guild newsletter! 😮 It's driven a ton of downloads and enough people have paid for a copy that it might soon become a copper bestseller!

If you're curious, it's available here: dmsguild.com/product/313524/Th

There's this mountain high in the Caucasus where Prometheus lies chained. Once every day, a little bird comes, descends upon him, and devours his liver. By night, his liver grows again, so the bird can return the next day and repeat the cycle again, over and over, every day, for all of eternity. You might think that's a hell of a long time. Personally, I think that's a hell of a bird.
