“A controversial photo collection shows children crucified to the backs of people who inflict violence. Erik Ravelo, a Cuban artist, arranged the harrowing combinations in order to highlight different ways children are harmed by adults.” This one is simply titled “USA.”

In a nutshell.
A government bold enough to force you to have a kid but too weak to ensure that they can at least get through recess alive.
This entire thread is terrifying and infuriating. My kids have been out of school for a long time, but now my granddaughter is the elementary school they attended. I don't know if they have similar drills, but I'm sure they must. BAN THE FUCKING ASSAULT WEAPONS.
What they don’t tell you is teachers are told in training that they have to lock out any of their students who are out of the classroom, *out of the classroom*. Even if they beg and bang on the door. Because there could be a shooter using them to access your classroom.

Teachers should not have the responsibility of having to sacrifice a child who didn't make it to the classroom in time. Children shouldn't have to fear going to the bathroom in case there is a drill or real situation. Little ones won't know the different.

A whole generation of little kids are going to have collective anxiety and PTSD. @SenateGOP & @HouseGOP are putting the burden on citizens because they don't give a shit about anyone.

Jesus. This is insanity.

When I was in 3rd grade, we had a code red drill. While we were all huddled together in the dark, someone started banging on the door asking to be let in. The teacher whispered to us, asking us what to do. I said let them in, and the teacher told me to go open the door, then. 1/2

Retweet if you want to kick @tedcruz in the nuts. If he had any 🖕
He “died of a broken heart”: Family of slain Uvalde teacher Irma Garcia are also mourning the death of her husband Joe, who had a heart attack after visiting her memorial. rol.st/3LP8MM3

Nothing says ban assault rifles like cops being scared of the shooter who has one.

Let’s prove a point: retweet if you support background checks on all gun sales.

🧵I can't fucking sleep tonight. Kept thinking about one of my last calls as an EMT after reading about cops not willingly putting themselves in harm's way. August 2001. I pulled my bus up just outside the PD cordon at the site of a DV call. 1/

A kid buys two assault weapons, days apart, and 375 rounds of ammunition. Is that alone not a warning sign?

GOP likes to blame gun massacres on mental illness as they collect NRA money. From 2017: "The new law nullifies an Obama-backed rule that added people with mental illnesses to the national background check database." nbcnews.com/news/us-news/tru…

I saw this last night, and was confused b/c it said she was the only survivor of the shooting. I saw lots of kids get out of the school. Now I hear the gunman was locked in a classroom w/kids. So she's the only one from that classroom who lived?
I'm happy one of them made it 😭

What a shock.
BREAKING: Senate Republicans block the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act, which would have opened debate on gun reform measures and creating federal offices tasked with combatting domestic terrorism.

This is so awful. Their poor children.
Joe Garcia, the husband of Irma Garcia, one of two teachers shot and killed in Uvalde, TX on Tuesday, has reportedly suffered a fatal heart attack. Joe and Irma were high school sweethearts and married 24 years. They leave behind four children.

Damn.
Known for his rugged looks and stern demeanor, Ray Liotta made a career playing tough guys on screen, most famously gangster Henry Hill. buzzfeednews.com/article/dav…

The idea that an 18-year-old can walk into a store and buy assault weapons is just wrong. What in God’s name do you need an assault weapon for except to kill someone?

Absolutely truth.
Every Republican on that stage showed more anger at Beto interrupting their photo op than they did at the 19 dead children in their state.
