The moment I said it The moment I opened my mouth Lead in your eyelids Bulldozed the life out of me
I know what you’re thinking But darling you’re not thinking straight Suddenly things just happen we can’t explain
It’s not even light out But you’ve somewhere to be No hesitation No I’ve never seen you like this And I don’t like it I don’t like it I don’t like it at all
Just put back the car keys Or somebody’s gonna get hurt Who are you calling at this hour? Sit down, come round, I need you now We’ll work it all out together But we’re getting nowhere tonight Now sleep, I promise it’ll all seem better Somehow in time
It’s not even light out Suddenly (suddenly) oh, you’ve somewhere to be With no hesitation Oh, I’ve never seen you like this You’re scaring me You’re scaring me You’re scaring me to death
this piece of shit led an attack against UNARMED iraqi CIVILIANS which resulted in the massacre of 24, including women, children, and an elderly man in a wheelchair.
eight marines were charged, but six had charges dropped/dismissed, one was acquitted, and this guy plead guilty and is sentenced to THREE MONTHS in jail.
he was charged for “dereliction of duty”. not “murdering two dozen innocent civilians”, nope.
this judge is saying he should serve “no time”.
he’s being demoted to private but he’s not suffering a pay cut - because he has sole custody of three children.
HOW THE FUCK IS HE KEEPING CUSTODY OF HIS CHILDREN WHEN HE PLED GUILTY TO MASSACRE? AND HE’S STILL IN THE MILITARY? 3 MONTHS IN JAIL?
i’m honestly. just. full of rage. if he had killed 24 other american women, children, elderly people, he would be fucking locked up for life and his children would never see him again. but because the people he murdered are iraqi, it’s ok. it’s not even that ~surprising~ to me, because militaries spend so much time dehumanizing “the enemy”, and when shit like this happens it just reinforces that (“the civilians were brown!!! brown people don’t matter, they’re basically not even people!!!!! as evidenced by the fact that i got off 95% scot-free!!!”), but that doesn’t mean i’m not disgusted and angry and horrified anyway.
he is directly responsible for the murder of 24 civilians, and yet he gets to (possibly) spend 3 months in jail and then go back to his normal life, with his kids, employed by the government, and just act like it never happened.
Awkward moment when you’re about to type ‘how to become a lawyer in NY’ in google and after typing ‘how to become’, the first suggestion to come up is ‘how to become anorexic’… and a whole bunch of sites on how to become anorexic… what on mother earth… there is something dangerously wrong with our society’s priorities today… Governments are worried about internet piracy and copyright infringement, when there are 5,180,000 websites aimed at vulnerable teenagers on how to become anorexic?? Why isn’t this issue dealt with more seriously?!
