  • this is kind of his fault for breaking and entering. Aside from police turning a blind eye… I don’t see why someone wouldn’t defend themselves from armed robbery.

    " Heriford, who was 35 when he died, was relatively well known to Seattle police, who sometimes encountered him when doing “crime prevention efforts” at the encampment under I-5 in Northeast Seattle where he lived, according to one police report. Between October 2022, when court documents show SPD officers first arrested him for an attempted break-in, and his death this year, Heriford was was charged in at least five theft or attempted theft cases, most of those in the garages of apartment buildings like the one where he died. The items Heriford was accused of included suitcases, paddleboards, motorcycles, and cars.

    He pled guilty to a domestic violence assault charge in 2009 and was charged with violating a no-contact order in that case several times between 2010 and 2012, but court records indicate he was never charged with another violent crime.

    "

    So we’re trying to hitch our wagon to a violent thief just because they died in a failed armed robbery attempt?


  • controversial take:

    Objectification has been happening ever since women and men existed. Perfection is something humans have idolized and admired for a long time. Gods and godesses were drawn to be attractive and charismatic.

    If the universe rewards intelligence over stupidity, why is rewarding beauty over ugliness a problem?

    There is also this argument that… let people have their circus. Extreme beauty and intelligence are something people can look at and admire for a weekend as a form of escape. But this doesn’t mean people leave their partners or talk shit to their sisters “why don’t you look like her”, etc.

    I guess my take is missing the problem which is that young adults set false expectation of their partners and this causes problem for them later in their life. But this feels like arguing we should shut down all forms of adult entertainment because the kids will get corrupted.
