hey sooooo remember how the police in ferguson were going to start wearing body cameras
actual quote from the article: “This gotcha discipline that we have with the dash board cameras is what we’d be afraid of,” Roorda said.
basically “any tangible way of holding us accountable for abusing our power is what we’d be afraid of”
shoutout to people working weekends and overnights and overtime, people working in hospitality and retail and food service, who are sacrificing time with their loved ones, so fuckers with weekday desk jobs get to live comfortably with the amenities we provide while simultaneously shitting all over us for not getting “real jobs”
I just realized something about this scene in In The Flesh: you know how the sickness the zombies have is called the Partially Deceased Syndrome? And it’s shorten with just the letters PDS, like here on Kieren’s garage door?
You know what PDS means in French? It means faggots. It’s actually spelled “pédé” (with the plural “pédés” - and yeah, offensive and very vulgar and shit) but we pronounce P like “pé” and D like “dé” so, really often, we just spell the word “pd” (so the plural would be “pds” - I think you’re getting where this is going).
Do you realize the big implication of this if my theory is true ? This scene means so much more than Rick being killed because he’s a PDS sufferer. I also means he was killed because he was of one the PDS (a gay person).
I think that it’s also a point the series is trying to make (that harassement on gay people is awful), so yeah, maybe it is indeed a coincidence but it adds something more - a more profound meaning - to this scene, really.
