DON’T SPREAD THE NAME OF THE UCSB SHOOTER

THERE HAVE BEEN STUDIES DONE THAT SHOW SPREADING THE NAME OF A SHOOTER MAKES MASS SHOOTINGS MORE FREQUENT AND INSPIRES OTHER MASS SHOOTERS

REDACT HIS NAME FROM TEXTPOSTS AND JUST REPLACE IT WITH [The UCSB Shooter]

LET’S NOT MAKE THIS GUY FAMOUS FOR KILLING WOMEN

IT’S SETTING A PRECEDENT I’M PRETTY SURE WE DON’T WANT FOLLOWED

SIGNAL BOOST PLEASE

Meet Kendon Fisher. He and his friends live at 3935 NE 15th Ave in Portland. Kendon is a perpetrator of abuse against a femme in our community. 

Kendon:

*committed multiple acts of physical violence (choked and pushed survivor)

*exhibited controlling behavior (demanded phone, facebook, and email to be checked because he “didn’t trust” victim)

*committed financial abuse (put bills in victim’s name without consent)

*was emotionally abusive toward victim (publicly belittled victim, isolated victim from family and friends)

The victim of Kendon’s abuse fled to Portland without many possessions. Kendon followed the victim to PDX within two days, and had officially moved back within one week, leaving behind his apartment and job in Seattle.

Kendon was seen outside of the victim’s workplace within two weeks of her fleeing. The victim then pursued a restraining order through the Multnomah County Courts. She did not serve the restraining order for fear of retaliation. Kendon learned of the restraining order through Cameron (see above) and then went to the courthouse and served himself the papers.

Kendon then contested the restraining order in court, claiming the victim was “crazy” , was an online sex worker and pole dancer and thus was not credible.

Kendon claimed that victim’s identity as polyamorous was reason for his need to control her.

Kendon never denied the abuse and claimed that his dreams of being a firefighter would be tarnished if the restraining order was to be upheld.

During the court hearing, Kendon spoke for over 2 hours, while the survivor was only given 30 minutes to speak. The victim lost the case and now lives in fear.

if capitalism is so voluntary, why does america have to keep using the cia to make sure other countries keep it?

If the free market naturally corrects problems, why do we have to give subsidies to large business interests and bail out banks?

If capitalism ensures that those that work the hardest make the most money, why doesn’t a coal miner make as much as a CEO?

I figured most of my Facebook friends would miss out on some of Martin Luther King, Jr’s quotes that are less palatable for complacent America. So I made some aggressive and hard-to-ignore photos to bomb their feed with for today.

Im digging the “freedom is never freely given by the oppressors” one
Thats why we cant just be nice and polite cuz otherwise we dont get shit
