16:43 < zero-one> i love how the cops can be used as hitmen on demand
16:44 < zero-one> system definitely isn't broken
16:44 <@Emcy_> it was a random fake address which the victim gave the swatter, anotehr father of 2 ded just like that
16:44 <@Emcy_> total unrelated 3rd party
16:44 <@Emcy_> the police blew him away the moment he opened his front door i read
16:44 <@Emcy_> why the fuck knock then

so the guy who called in the cops *might* go to jail.. but probably not because its across state lines. the police will never be held accountable for this of course.

you guys ever notice that a cops first priority is 1) the system 2) property 3) his own life

like the lives of others is waaaay down there. and "i was scared!" is somehow a defense when they have the burden of *responsibly* escalating force (civilians aren't allowed to escalate)

anyway

fuck cops, acab, etc

RIP James Dolan who committed suicide today at age 36. He was the co-creator of SecureDrop, a whistleblower submission system, alongside Aaron Swartz and Wired editor Kevin Poulsen.

Definitely government corruption, but also hilarious



Vape?  Steam?  There is a pun in there somewhere.  25 coral for each good one.  100 to the best.

Quote
The Central Intelligence Agency used American modern art - including the works of such artists as Jackson Pollock, Robert Motherwell, Willem de Kooning and Mark Rothko - as a weapon in the Cold War.

In the 1950s and 1960s, when the great majority of Americans disliked or even despised modern art - President Truman summed up the popular view when he said: "If that's art, then I'm a Hottentot." As for the artists themselves, many were ex- communists barely acceptable in the America of the McCarthyite era, and certainly not the sort of people normally likely to receive US government backing.

Why did the CIA support them? Because in the propaganda war with the Soviet Union, this new artistic movement could be held up as proof of the creativity, the intellectual freedom, and the cultural power of the US. Russian art, strapped into the communist ideological straitjacket, could not compete.

The decision to include culture and art in the US Cold War arsenal was taken as soon as the CIA was founded in 1947. Dismayed at the appeal communism still had for many intellectuals and artists in the West, the new agency set up a division, the Propaganda Assets Inventory, which at its peak could influence more than 800 newspapers, magazines and public information organisations. They joked that it was like a Wurlitzer jukebox: when the CIA pushed a button it could hear whatever tune it wanted playing across the world.
