    most population dense areas Black men You know who dies in the least population dense areas Mentally ill men It s not to say there aren t dangerous and desperate criminals killed across the line But African Americans and the mentally ill people make up a huge percentage of people killed by police And if you want to get down to nut cuttin time across the board it s poor people who are killed by police And by the way around 96 percent of people killed by police are men But maybe most important thing I learned is that collecting this information is hard I still firmly believe that having a large searchable database will allow us not just better understanding of these incidents but better training policies and protocols for police and consequently fewer dead people and police But normal people don t much care about numbers Trolls intentionally try to pollute the data Subterranean disinformationists routinely get out fake numbers I try to take advantage of the public passion when when an incendiary event happens like the death of Kelly Thomas James Boyd Eric Garner or Michael Brown Or when a Deadspin writer decides to get involved My girlfriend calls this riding the spike I call it

    She only regrets the vote because it s causing a headache for her in this primary via wilwheaton Apr 17 2016 376 notes Though Clinton s anti Russian delusions are shared by many powerful people in Official Washington they are no more accurate than the other claims about Iraq s WMD Gaddafi passing out Viagra to his troops the humanitarian need to invade Syria the craziness about Iran being the principal source of terrorism when it is the Saudis the Qataris the Turks and other Sunni powers that have bred Al Qaeda and the Islamic State and the notion that the Palestinians are the ones picking on the Israelis not the other way around However Clinton s buying into the neocon propaganda about Russia may be the most dangerous arguably existential threat that a Clinton presidency would present to the world Yes she may launch U S military strikes against the Syrian government which could open the gates of Damascus to Al Qaeda and the Islamic State yes she might push Iran into renouncing the nuclear agreement and putting the Israeli neocon goal to bomb bomb bomb Iran back on the table yes she might make Obama s progressive critics long for his more temperate presidency But Clinton s potential escalation of the new Cold War with Russia could be both the most costly and conceivably the most suicidal feature of a Clinton 45 presidency Unlike her times as Secretary of State when Obama could block her militaristic schemes there will be no one to stop her if she is elected President surrounded by likeminded neocon advisers Yes Hillary Clinton Is a Neocon Bernie Sanders is the only candidate in either party who will not engage in disastrous military actions around the world because he s the only choice we

    Middle East is there a way to do it that won t create more problems than it solves Those are simple obvious questions but so often they re overwhelmed by people waving their arms and shouting We re all gonna die In the days and years after September 11 Republicans repeated that al Qaeda was an existential threat a notion that was utterly insane yet seldom examined And we certainly acted as though the very existence of the United States of America was indeed in question Congress gave the federal government a slate of new powers to spy on its citizens We created a surveillance apparatus of gargantuan size and scope We deployed a network of secret prisons as sites for a program of torture And we all got used to the idea that the War on Terror is forever A couple of hundred thousand Americans die every year from preventable medical errors and the response from the government amounts to Gee that s too bad but all it takes is a few videos of brutal executions 6 000 miles away to spur a wholesale reexamination of American foreign policy via wilwheaton Thank god other people write this stuff so
