A curiosity I’ve been meaning to watch for a long time, and I finally get around to watching this semi-comedy semi-drama about a magician duo and the craziness that happens in their world and with their relationship. Starring and made by the dudes from the Peep Show, which I’ve never watched but I’ve always wondered about.
Notice something in common in these photos?
It’s not what you think
I gave it away in the third pic
That’s right! None of these cops are wearing badges or name tags! I wonder why… seems like it’d be important to wear those, since it’s even illegal not to in other states…
This is actually illegal in all states. A police officer must be marked as such with name and badge at all times unless their jurisdiction states otherwise (such as an undercover officer), and even when not wearing a badge, the officer must have the badge accessible at all times and must show the badge in order to make an arrest. Name tags are not required as long as a badge is available because the badge has the officer number on it.
This has really been bothering me. The police in Ferguson are breaking the law by concealing their identities. Everyone knows this, it’s been going on for ten days, and it appears that nobody is doing anything about it.
The police are clearly and systematically violating the first amendment rights of the press, and they are getting away with it. This has been happening for days, and nobody appears to be doing anything about it.
A police officer pointed a rifle at a journalist and told him to fuck off *while he was being filmed, so he’s easily identifiable by his superiors*, and that police officer still has a job.
I know that not all cops are bad (or even most cops), but there are clearly bad cops in Ferguson, and they’re acting with complete impunity. I don’t understand why those cops aren’t being taken off the scene, and why a higher (possibly federal) authority isn’t coming in to address these things.
This review started as just a fun review of an 80s action classic since Expendables 3 is around the corner. But its themes touch on a lot of what’s going on in Ferguson now. So of course, I start exploring a little deeper into the themes.
Cracked fan Greg Welsh Jr. might be a lot like you, in the sense that he’s one single pop culture fan and not an endlessly duplicated shell of a human. The only version of Greg there has ever been pitched this Prestige + Mario idea to us, and one of many dimensional versions of Soren OKed it and Jesse Eisemann designed it into the literal fabric of reality (cotton). Because isn’t Mario’s “multiple lives” situation sort of like Hugh Jackman’s drowned magician character, or the key quandary of teleportation? Don’t Mario and Luigi probably have an intense behind-the-scenes rivalry for your preference as a player? Isn’t David Bowie awesome? If you agree with at least two of those propositions, this is the shirt for you. And if you don’t agree with any of them, you need to sit down with at least one segment of Bowie’s career and rethink some things. [GET IT HERE]
I absolutely want this!
Oh my oh my oh my. Why do I keep picking super long things to watch and review? I gotta get back to short stuff and give my fingers a rest. Check out this miniseries of Stephen King’s arguably most famous book/villain/series/whatever.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air 2x09 - “Cased Up” (November 11, 1991)
As an white dude with no clue of how life can be for more urban settings and for other races, I found this show entertaining, Jazz super funny, and this episode in particular hilarious. And I now realize the very not-funny this-is-actually-happening part of what is happening. :/
they’re arresting people for trying to get home after being teargassed and targeted by flash grenades but the man who literally murdered an unarmed teenager was allowed to LEAVE THE STATE before his name was released to the public.
HE LEFT THE STATE??????? IS THIS A FUCKING JOKE????????
