Police caught on camera hitting, tying down a 22 year old black mother before chopping off her…

Jesus GOD.

Read the article if you can stomach it.
"Just a little over a week ago, the republican Executive Director of Oakland County, Michigan, another suburb of Detroit, suggested that Detroit be turned into an ‘Indian reservation,” but for black people.

“I made a prediction a long time ago and it’s come to pass. I said what we’re gonna do is turn Detroit into an Indian reservation, where we herd all the Indians into the city, build a fence around it and then throw in the blankets and the corn.”

He later clarified his statement, saying that his comment was in reference to black people, not Indians.
In another suburb of Detroit, Gross Pointe, it was brought to light that police were humiliating mentally disabled black men. Videos show cops telling the men to sing, dance, walk like chimps and perform other demeaning acts. The men were recorded and the videos were circulated among friends and family members of the officers involved, along with racist messages.
Detroit is currently under an extreme law, written by Republicans and Tea Party members in the Michigan legislature. The law allows the governor to legally strip the citizens of their right to elect local government. It allows the state’s republican governor, Rick Snyder, to remove duly elected representatives and appoint hand picked representatives in their place. During the summer of 2013, the Governor’s hand-picked emergency manager shut off power to a large part of the city of Detroit, on the hottest day of the year. He later admitted, on camera, that it was done to teach the citizens of Detroit “a lesson.”

What. The. Fuck. Warren.

Scientists are calling it “libricide.” Seven of the nine world-famous Department of Fisheries and Oceans [DFO] libraries were closed by autumn 2013, ostensibly to digitize the materials and reduce costs. But sources told the independent Tyee in December that a fraction of the 600,000-volume collection had been digitized. And, a secret federal document notes that a paltry $443,000 a year will be saved. The massacre was done quickly, with no record keeping and no attempt to preserve the material in universities. Scientists said precious collections were consigned to dumpsters, were burned or went to landfills.

How the Harper Government Committed a Knowledge Massacre. Capt. Trevor Greene, Huffington Post

Things are not okay in Canada. What aren’t more people talking about this? ”Scientists said precious collections were consigned to dumpsters, were burned or went to landfills." The destroyed multiple generations of research! From internationally recognised institutions! They fucking burned it!

They didn’t let anyone try to preserve the materials! They wanted it to be gone. This isn’t some accidental loss. They went in and burned the research, because it doesn’t fit with their goals for people to be able to know anything.. “Hundreds of years of carefully compiled research into aquatic systems, fish stocks and fisheries from the 1800s and early 1900s went into the bin or up in smoke.

Hannibal Tabu being the same ass that writes The Buy Pile…Comic Ink being the same store that helps him to encourage people to read books in the store and then put them back on the shelves…wow…

Plus these assholes remove comics from people’s pull list and put them back on the shelves to, apparently, do them a favour. No, you jackasses, you don’t deserve anyone’s business.

And now I’m going to go order the first four issues of Pretty Deadly because a) I have heard nothing but good things about it, b) it seems awesome, c) Kelly Sue DeConnick and Emma Rios are fucking awesome and, finally, d) as a big middle finger to the jerks at Comics Ink and Hannibal Tabu!

…yeah, that’s a shop that would have lost my business to Amazon and Comixology in about six seconds flat.

China has a major wasp problem right now. Over the past three months, 21 people have died as a result of wasp stings in the province of Shaanxi alone.
The killer variety responsible is thought to be Vespa mandarinia, or, “Asian giant hornets.” They are typically 2.2 inches long, and attack in swarms. Don’t think you can run away, either. These things will chase you, and can fly at speeds of nearly 25mph.

WELP THAT’S ME NEVER GOING TO CHINA EVER.

…nope.

Bluewater Is Doing A Paula Deen Comic, Somehow Still Exists
By Chris Sims
It’s been a while since we’ve heard from our friends (well, frenemies) over at Bluewater Comics — so long, in fact, that I was starting to think that we were done with them entirely. Sadly, much like herpes, getting rid of Bluewater isn’t that easy. This week, they’re back in the news with another comic cashing in on current events. This time, it’s a biography of celebrity chef / racist Paula Deen.

…was the artist literally told “Draw me a giant vagina monster?” No, really, the focal point of this picture is a lady standing in front of a giant set of Lovecraftian labia.
I feel like I should be labeling this NSFW.

Dinotasia: What did I just watch…?

I just watched a B-movie revenge story. Played out with T-Rexes.

Seriously.

They took his arm. They destroyed his family. Now the only thing he has left is…VENGEANCE!

Complete with our hero getting sweet loving from his wife on the eve of his victory.

WTF…

Someone tell me this man is trolling. The idea that he’s contributing a dialogue about and the presentation of minorities in fiction is too depressing to contemplate otherwise.

Annnnd this would be where I lost it, friends and gentlepersons. Full on guffawing and rolling on the floor. 
It didn’t help that my mind provided a *poot!* sound-effect when I hit that last panel.
