"Hey Jerry, What’s it like working in a video game studio?"
The backlog of rape kits has put justice on hold for a lot of people. Back in 2009, more than 11,000 untested kits were found in a Detroit Police Department storage facility. Some were more than 25 years old.
Mariska Hargitay speaks on some of the issues surrounding the rape kit backlog in Detroit, Michigan. #endthebacklog (x)
It costs between $1,000 – $1,500 to test every single rape kit. There are over 10,000 kits left in Detroit’s rape kit backlog. Your donation can go directly to testing them. Donate to the Detroit Crime Commission’s backlog initiative by clicking here.
I am pretty explicitly anti-police in every respect. But I support Wayne County prosecutor Kym Worthy and her push to catalogue the egregious backlog of unprocessed rape kits in Detroit.
Her work has already identified countless serial rapists in southeast Michigan, and will continue to identify these rapist pieces of shit as she moves forward.
Who cares if this process leads to conviction or not. Just give us the list. We can take care of the rest.
"After Detroit tested the first 10% of its backlogged kits, authorities were able to link cases to 46 serial rapists." (x)
Just think about it: 46 serial rapists. And the evidence against them was out there, all the time, in those backlogged kits. And that’s just 10% of them
todays rebirth item tease comes in the form of a not so exciting item that im using as a way to talk about a new feature in rebirth that i think is quite amazing, but 1st lets get this belt out of the way.
the champion belt is a STORE ITEM, that raises the % chance of champion enemies…
A tinker’s debt is always paid:
Once for any simple trade,
Twice for freely given aid,
Thrice for any insult made.
I forgot my headphones at home twice in a row this week. With all the mechanical keyboards at my office, it sounds like the ‘1000 monkeys at a typewriter’ scenario, but with far more monkey sounds.
I went to work early this morning so I could play video games without waking up my girlfriend, and I spent the whole time fighting my computer to download anything on steam, and now that everything is working and the games are almost done downloading, I need to actually start working. Life is cruel sometimes.
Let’s pretend we don’t exist.
I am cat Jesus.
I’m having a wicked awesome run in The Binding of Isaac, and I’ve only reached the
third fourth floor. I’ve managed to get Polyphemus, become guppy, take in several other great damage + speed ups (include Speed Ball), and I’m just flying around killing everything. Cat Jesus pounces and kills. Every. Time.
These were my stats/visible items by the end. It goes without saying that it was almost impossible for me to lose.
