Yall know that children aren’t property right? Yall know that children aren’t employees right? Children aren’t pets, props, toys, burdens, objects, or anything like that. They’re humans. Small humans you created. You’ve vowed to help them learn, grow, and take care of them. If you can’t love them, respect them, show them care, then you need to give them to someone who will.
misha collins is an absolute chaotic enigma of a man. he got arrested for attempted bank robbery because he decided to climb on top of a bank to read a book. he held up traffic in the middle of the highway by throwing a tea party in the middle. he has stories about doing acid with his dad at burning man. he spent time in a tibetian monastary. he has a degree from the university of chicago and interned for bill clinton. and then he somehow stumbled onto a cw set. how. who is he. i simultaneously want to learn every detail about his life and also fear that would inflict deadly psychic damage
deeply missing the rituals of elementary school
same routine every day…. going to the library as a class… eating lunch with your friends… having a teacher read to you from the same book every day.. packing your little backpack… now what do i do? emails?
IT HAS BEEN 55 MINUTES AND BRANDON BERNARD IS STILL ALIVE. I AM BEGGING YOU TO DO YOUR PART AND SAVE THIS MAN - IT LITERALLY DOES NOT TAKE ANY TIME AT ALL.
EDIT: I have more links, please sign!!
Also, if you have Twitter, it would also be super helpful if you tweet out the following:
Hi @realDonaldTrump, I am asking you to please commute Brandon Bernard’s sentence to life w/o parole, and save him from execution. His former prosecutor and 5 of 9 surviving jurors want his life to be spared. He was only 18 at the time of the crime and was not the shooter.
EDIT #2 (as of 8:02 EST):
I have an update on the information but PLEASE DO NOT STOP SPEAKING UP ABOUT THIS. THIS MEANS THAT WE HAVE TO KEEP ON GOING, PLEASE WE NEED TO SAVE THIS MAN’S LIFE.
The following was posted at 7:36 EST but we still need to keep on going please.
On December 10, 2020, Brandon Bernard is scheduled to be executed by the federal government for a crime he committed when he was 18 years old. He has spent 21 years on death row. Five out of the nine surviving jurors that found him guilty and one of his prosecutors no longer agree with his sentence. Please spread his story on social media, email President Trump, and call the Justice Department to ask them to commute his sentence to life without parole. Brandon Bernard’s crime is incompatible with his punishment and we cannot allow the federal government to follow through with this.
Please click the source link to be taken to his website, which details his life in prison and ways you can advocate for him. In the replies are a page with specific actions we can take to help his case and an Instagram post to share.
Attaching screenshots from the Instagram post op linked in the comments ^^
his request for stay of execution has been denied. my understanding is that at this point we can do nothing else but wait for the execution to be carried out. it is an enormous injustice.
there are a ton of people in the notes VERY angry his case has gotten so much attention, because he was involved in a murder (although the circumstances of his involvement are heavily disputed, not that that should matter). y’all are full of shit.
you don’t get to oppose the death penalty but make exceptions when YOU decide someone deserves it. activists for prison abolition, or even less radical forms of prison reform, understand that sometimes you are helping save the life of someone who did something terrible, because no matter what they did they still deserve to live. the right to life isn’t something you get to apply selectively, I can’t believe I’m having to explain this.
i had no idea they were so frickin huge
I love them so much because they’re about as sharp as a baseball and their anatomy is ridiculous to the point of them literally being classified as plankton for years because they just sort of get blown around by the ocean and look confused, but because they lay more eggs than ANY OTHER VERTEBRATE IN EXISTENCE, evolution can’t stop them
Why is no big predator coming and gnawing on them?
Their biggest defense is that they’re massive and have super tough skin, but they do get hunted by sharks or sea lions sometimes and they just sort of float there like ‘oh bother’ as it happens
Even funnier, because they eat nothing but jellyfish they’re really low in nutritional value anyway, so they basically survive by being not worth eating because they’re like a big floating rice cracker wrapped in leather.
So basically the only reason natural selection hasn’t taken care if them is because they are the most useless fish
yes, they’ve perfected uselessness to the point of being unstoppable
a true inspiration
