Richie: Where’s the milk? I thought you went to the store
Eddie: I couldn’t reach it! It was in the top shelf
I feel like in a way “serial killers are geniuses” is just part of police propaganda because it sounds way better than “we are fucking lazy and a lot of serial killers know that and target people who we don’t care about because of racism and classism”.
More often than not, the killers’ “genius” is far far FAR outweighed by police incompetence and indifference.
I always think of the green River killer who targeted sex workers cos he knew no one would care and he was basically correct. “I thought I could kill as many as I want and no one would notice” and they didn’t care til he started targeting non sex workers. That’s not genius that’s just society hating SWs yet again
I can not stress this enough, former representative Dave Richert made his political career on “catching the Green River Killer” but he actually obstructed the investigation for 20 years because he refused to investigate the white killer and instead went after innocent Black men.
One of Jeffrey Dahmer’s victims, 14 year old Konerak Sinthasomphone, managed to briefly escape despite being injured and heavily drugged. Three women found him collapsed naked on a sidewalk and called the police. Dahmer arrived and convinced the officers that Sinthasomphone was his boyfriend who had had too much to drink. Against the women’s protests that Sinthasomphone was obviously injured and incoherent, the police walked Sinthasomphone back to Dahmer’s apartment where they conducted a cursory investigation before leaving the boy in Dahmer’s “care”.
If the officers had conducted a background check on Dahmer, they would have realized that he was a convicted child molester. If they had “investigated” more than just his living room, they would have found the dead body of his previous victim lying on his bedroom floor. If they had checked over Sinthasomphone a bit more closely, they may have noticed the hole that Dahmer had drilled in his skull.
These incompetent policemen are responsible for Konerak Sinthasomphone’s death - they literally returned him to the hands of his murderer, telling the concerned women to “butt out” and “shut the hell up” before threatening to arrest them for interfering. They are also responsible, I would argue, for the deaths of the four people Dahmer subsequently killed. This incident took place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, May 1991.
Two of the four officers involved in this incident were fired after Dahmer was caught in July 1991. However they appealed their terminations and were both reinstated as police officers in 1994, going on to “lead successful careers”.
the heroines in question were Sandra Smith, her cousin Nicole Childress, and her mother Glenda Cleveland
May (2002) dir. Lucky McKeeYou know how when you meet someone… and you think you like them, but then the more you talk to ‘em, you see parts you don’t like? And sometimes… you don’t end up liking any parts at all. But… the boy I saw today is different. I like every part of him. Especially his hands. They’re beautiful.
I went a bit too big on this piece, but here it finally is: Day Three of the IT Fandom Week hosted by @itfandomprompts! The prompt was “Meet Not-So-Cute”, and Benverly already had a canon one of those, and I’ve drawn plenty of Reddie content, so I figured I’d finally make content for one of my other, beloved ships in this fandom: Bike! I’m not sure how they met canonly for the first time, but let’s hope it was with a lot less pain than crashing their bikes into one another..

Cool, just call me a pull out couch. I’m cool with that ;)
There have been a couple people saying they’re getting our couch comic made into a tattoo. If you did, send pictures! ❤ it would be amazing to see and reblog them!
eddie loving cars is EVERYTHING to me. nobody expects it of him at all, but every once and a while he’ll drop some random factoid. like a super loud car will pass them and eddie, without missing a single beat, is just nonchalantly like “yeah that must be a lexus lc 500. great engine but totally obnoxious” and this is very impressive to the other losers, but mostly stan who can only identify his car as “blue,” bill who infamously wrecked his car by putting water in the gas tank, and richie who had no idea that his type was “mechanics who are also hypochondriacs”
holes 2003 truly did it all…. the tackling of the prison industrial complex done in a way that was appropriate and understandable for kids while also pulling no punches…,, the full cast of well written kids of color… the drama, romance, and mystery to keep it fresh while also handling the heavy focus of racism.. the seamless weaving of the a and b plots… sigourney weaver looking like That. cinemas finest.
Seriously though, this sounds ENTIRELY like something white people would have tried to get away with.
Me hearing the premise: *kill bill sirens*
This better pass.
Me reading it’s lead by actual native american people: Oh thank fuck, yes please let this be a thing.
It’s very good to see it isnt that.
