After they removed the encampment that was here, MPLS put these down to prevent them from returning. Heaven forbid unhoused people seek refuge from the snow. Like so many cities, MPLS thinks that homelessness is a crime, and is willing to punish it in ways that lead to death.

Just got a smile on my face imagining @JamesPrescott77 reading this, and how long he and others fans of the character have waited for a Superman like this.

Is Hayley Williams the last great american rock star? Discuss.

Folks naming Jack White and Dave Grohl… both older than Hayley. I didn’t mean “last” as in “only remaining” but as in “there’s been no-one like this since.”

So much of the problem with how Christians approach homelessness boils down to our insistence on showing up as evangelists rather than as chaplains. We push for a confrontation or a change, rather than with a mindset of care and support.

I will never stop screaming this
Now imagine how much cooler this would be if they actually let him wear a Spidey suit instead of a mocap suit and didn’t CGI paint over the suit

Policing and its logic of violent control are antithetical to the gospel of Jesus.

Regarding Tyre Nichols and the race of the officers who killed him. *TW/CW, but no details of violence* You will see arguments that the officers being black discredits that racism is at play. It actually does the opposite, showing that the problem is policing itself. A story:

We were asked by the city to operate a Project Roomkey site—the initiative many cities did to use vacant hotels for temporary housing during COVID for the most vulnerable unhoused. We said yes, but it came with FEMA $ which meant strict FEMA rules.

There was no alcohol allowed on site, period. Never mind these were adults, and only some struggled with alcoholism. We had to employ a security company to perform searches of any bags or items that were brought into the property. We saw it as a frustrating but unavoidable evil.

There was one man who was a lifelong alcoholic, to the point that if he were to try and quit cold turkey, the withdrawal would literally kill him. (He also had no interest in quitting, which is his right and should not determine his worthiness of being housed.)

It became an ongoing issue, him trying to sneak in alcohol, getting caught by security, reporting it to us, us having to confront him. Most days he sat in his wheelchair (yep) on the sidewalk just off the property, right by traffic, drinking. WAY LESS SAFE than drinking inside.

But that’s not the point of this telling. What I noticed, observing our staff over time, is they gradually went from being harm reduction problem-solvers to being an extension of security. They would scold him for trying to sneak in alcohol, and make resentful jokes about him.

One day, our staff saw him with a Gatorade bottle inside and got suspicious. They confiscated it, took off the lid and smelled—it was alcohol. They were proud! In just a few months, they went from harm reduction practitioners to bloodhounds, excited to bust him w/ alcohol. How?

If you put people in power in places/institutions/systems that celebrate and reward punishment/antagonism of certain people, the individual operating within that can only be molded by it, unless they opt out by exiting, or be kicked out when they challenge the system.

Policing is an inherently racist system, created to inflict violence and capture on particular people. It rewards and celebrates it. It doesn’t matter how good or noble a person is, or what race they are. The longer they are in that system, they become its defender, its enforcer.

That’s why we have to talk about abolishing policing as we know it. The problem isn’t racist cops. The problem is the racist institution of American policing, that can cause even a group of black officers to be its agents of racist violence. (End)

An excellent thread about this:
since this will come up a lot in media coverage of Tyre Nichols in Memphis: while I get that it seems narratively significant that the officers are black. Statistically, it is unsurprising. In tracking police violence, we never found that race of the officer made much difference
