It just seems crazy to me that they would arrest someone and charge them with assaulting police when they were just sitting.

EDIT:

On the plus side, Fuck Spectrum/Time Warner

It helps to look like the kind of person cops don't like.

It's not even from a political blog man, it's from a blog that usually posts esoteric vocabulary that hadn't been active for awhile, I'm pretty sure it's real.

They've got no reason to lie since they're not politically active otherwise, they haven't stuck up an account to ask for donations for legal costs, etc...

Just... seriously fuck all these shady-ass businesses.

Don’t use the AncestryDNA testing service without actually reading the Ancestry.com Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. According to these legal contracts, you still own your DNA, but so does Ancestry.com.
The family history website Ancestry.com is selling a new DNA testing service called AncestryDNA. But the DNA and genetic data that Ancestry.com collects may be used against “you or a genetic relative.” According to its privacy policies, Ancestry.com takes ownership of your DNA forever. Your ownership of your DNA, on the other hand, is limited in years.
It seems obvious that customers agree to this arrangement, since all of them must “click here to agree” to these terms. But, how many people really read those contacts before clicking to agree? And how many relatives of Ancestry.com customers are also reading?
Like seriously this is crazy bullshit.

Some fuckwit just said his second favorite president was Andrew Jackson because of how much he expanded our territory. And he's family, so I can't even do anything about it.

Really pissed off that more people don't recognize Jackson is a genocidal monster


More concerned that Trumps new science guy said our modern air is too clean

One of my former troops was talking to me on fb messenger about his deployment. It was going quite well and in-depth about the pros and cons about life in Afghanistan. Then I showed him how to work a VPN to get around certain blocks in the country that I taught to dozens of people when I was overseas. He hasn't replied in like an hour.
Passing the torch.

The chances of a wrist slipping off is highly unlikely because cops DO check that before they lock the yolk via finger check.

1. Police can only hold you for 24 hours without charge. That's normal and consistent (she/he said overnight, which is standard for a drunk tank, and they say they were drunk). This is 100% ok and normal. Sticks to the procedure as I understand it.

2. It falls apart here. They placed a charge on the OP, which would require bail to get out. So they wouldn't have released them unless bail was posted. Common crimes, some departments have a list of set prices so they don't have to hold you. Assaulting an officer? Not so common. That would require a Judge to ok. Which means OP wasn't released the next morning. While it is "technically" possible to charge someone after being released, the arresting officers would then have to explain to a judge why they thought it was ok to release someone being charged for assault (I.E. Dangerous) without bail to the public. Police will also hold you for multiple days on assault, or at least put in for it. Not overnight.

3.This happened at a concert, with people nearby (as OP did say they were embarrassed in public) and no video has surfaced? Either from outside the venue (which almost certainly had cameras) or from cell phones. And the OP, remember, is small enough that their wrist apparently slipped through handcuffs. So, probably, a women. So two large officers manhandled a drunk women at a concert in this political climate with no videos, condemnation, et all?

I'm not saying the incident above didn't "happen". I understand OP is likely shaken from the experience, the post on Tumblr is now gone (which, if legal action is involved, the lawyer would most certainly tell them to take down), so some series of events most likely did occur.

But It's extremely unlikely for them to have occurred as they wrote down. For a multitude of reasons.

So Asmongold wants Roux fired because she made posts about not liking white men on twitter over the course of uh... 3 years.

Can she even be fired? Wasn’t she hired solely to write the SL novel? I doubt she is a full time employee...

That said, that her posts were made over the course of three years is a weak excuse. It’s not like this is a juvenile indiscretion that one might be inclined to turn a blind eye towards.

I don’t think that private social media accounts are an employer’s business. Especially if they are actually private and you have to jump through a few hoops (like being friend ma with the person) to actually see their content. (Not the case this time.) Additionally, she was hired by Blizzard after the fact. So do I think that she should be fired (if that’s even possible)? No.

However, there is a difference between a random, faceless employee and a best-selling author. One of them probably won’t lead to bad press, the other very well might. So I’d say that it is less a question of whether she should or should not be fired; it’s a question of whether she should have been hired to begin with.

I do wonder whether a man would be under the same amount of scrutiny though... but we can only speculate about the fact.

I never understood why people care so much about what people say on their private twitter enough to try to get that person fired. I mean you're free to stop buying from or following whoever you like because of their 'wrong thinking' or whatever, but trying to take that person down for everybody else is morally despicable.

I would be inclined to say so, yes. You could even argue that men are under even more scrutiny these days since everyone's trying to prove someone's a bigot of some sort, and men publicly catch a lot more flack for their perceived bigotry since they're the 'oppresors'.

Yeah...

I remembered Metzen's “boys trip” fauxpas and the reactions to it directly after making that post. It was a pretty dumb statement, but some of the reactions... yikes.

So the comments were three years ago, or she repeatedly made racist comments over a 3 year span?

She made like 4-5 incredibly mild tweets making sarcastic 'white people' jokes over the course of three years.

Clearly we haven't been seeing the same tweets. The woman is trash. Though her rants against white guys are deliciously ironic given that she was only hired because her dad is a bigwig at Blizz.

This article implies it was a mix up and the guy and her randomly share the same last name:

https://boundingintocomics.com/2020/...i-male-tweets/

But who knows. Scanning through it the article also shows that she lied how she did not make those tweets and that they were shopped, but her posts were archived and her lie visible to all.

Regardless all of that doesn't matter because lets be real, if she had written those "sarcastic" jokes about black people she would be scrubbing toilets in NYC subway and you know it. Just because in the current social climate she gets away with it doesn't make it right to say such things, even troll fans about it.

I don't think making jokes about white people in the way she did is remotely comparable to racism regarding black people due to the cultural context.

Also: SHE'S WHITE.
