The most heart-wrenching images I have ever seen were the ones taken of Omayra Sánchez, a young Colombian girl who became trapped under debris after a mudslide (stemming from a volcanic eruption) demolished her village. The Colombian gov't failed to provide timely and organized relief to survivors of the disaster. As a result, Omayra remained trapped and partially submerged for 3 days before finally passing away, surrounded by a handful of volunteers who lacked the resources to free or treat her. Toward the end of her life, her eyes turned black and her hands turned bone white. Nevertheless, witnesses described her as remaining calm and even conducting interviews with reporters until her final hours.




RIP to this courageous soul. :wah:wah:wah:wah:wah

While the death penalty for drugs is fucking ridiculous on its own would smuggling drugs out of a country warrant it ? Smuggling drugs into a country I can understand but taking them out ? Seems extreme.
They weren’t smuggling drugs out of Indonesia, it was a transit route from the Golden Triangle.
Secondly, it is one of, if not the biggest Muslim populations in the world so at any given time you could be dealing with moderate Sharia or hardline Sharia. Bali is the exception as it less religious and seen as a safer passage but when push comes to shove, it is governed Indonesia which is Muslim.

So, are you saying your solution would be to legalize Class A narcotics???? Not sure what point you're trying to make as it seem like comparing apples to oranges.
Basically yes.

Prohibition simply doesn't work wether it be drugs, alcohol, gambling, prostitution or whatever. If people want to get high then they're gonna get high, when there's a demand there will always be a supply. Control and regulation is the answer.

The reason why I brought up Capone is because alcohol prohibition in the US is perfect example of how prohibition is pointless.

When the volstead act was introduced the government took a commodity that almost everyone wanted and drove it onto the black market. It was the greatest single thing to ever happen to organised crime and turned gangsters like Capone and Luciano into overnight billionaires as well as helping crime rates explode.

There's a reason why it was repealed just over a decade later. It was utterly useless and caused more problems than it solved, which is the case with most prohibition.

It is apples and oranges.

America is an ever evolving democracy.
Indonesia is an Islamic State.

The Bali 9 didn’t get arrested for breaking the country’s drug laws, they broke Islamic law.

"This is the bullet that ended my father's battle with depression"


Young dude closest to the camera is Telemachus Orfanos (awesome name.) He was at the Harvest festival in Vegas and survived Stephen Paddock's massacre. 13 months later, he was one of more than a dozen murdered by a total stranger during a mass shooting at a bar in Thousand Oaks, California. But there's no problem with guns.


Resident of Pleasure, California discovers burned bodies of his friends and neighbours upon returning to his street:

I love you and I will miss you forever. Also I’ve scheduled posts to my blog- so for the next 10 years I’ll be posting from the other side.”

Eighteen year old Jolee Callan went for a hike with her ex-boyfriend in the mountains of Alabama. He shot and killed her then threw her body over a cliff, after posting several photos of her on Instagram including this one. He turned himself in the same day, and insisted that the two had a suicide pact that he was unable to complete after killing Jolee. Her family disagrees. He was sentenced to 52 years in prison.

How a Life That Showed Promise Veered Into Violence Against Asian Women

The last message to family and friends from Tyrelle D. Shaw, an artist and bow-tie designer who called himself “Mr. Talented,” arrived at 1:38 p.m. on June 16.
“Surprisingly, I saw my afterlife!” he wrote on Facebook. “If I’m correct- I should be reincarnated into a Rat. Guess what? Your life after death already exist. It’s just waiting for you to die. I know! I know! People call me weird, but I’m actually Brilliant.”

The distressing note, in which Mr. Shaw said he planned to take his own life, signified the beginning of the end of a vicious crime spree that had terrified an entire community in New York. It also represented the climax of what the Police Department’s chief of detectives would later describe as “one of the strangest stories” he had encountered in some time.

Ku Klux Klan member dangles a noose from a car window as a warning to black people to stay away from polling places in the municipal primary. Over 600 black voters showed up to vote anyway. Miami, May 3, 1969.

Shasta Gorene was arrested last year for leaving meth near her two infant children. She was recently arrested again for violating her probation.



She's the sole survivor of a pedophile serial killer who murdered her entire family and kidnapped her and her brother, living with them on the run for more than six weeks.

I've actually thought about giving this guy his own post in the thread - he might be the worst serial killer I'm aware of.

Autistic children strapped to a radiator in a children's hospital, 1982.

In 2002 in Iran, a 16 year old schoolgirl named Atefah Salaaleh was publicly hanged from a truck-mounted crane for "adultery" and "crimes against chastity".


Under torture, she confessed to having sex with a 51 year old taxi driver who she said raped her. The same lawman, Haji Rezai, served as prosecutor, witness, judge and hangman against this young girl. Iranian law forbids the execution of anyone under 18, which she was. Her family says they gave her 1988 birth certificate to the court, but Judge/Prosecutor/Executioner Rezai just looked at her and decided she was at least 22.

In court, she defiantly removed her hijab, threw her shoes at judge Rezai, and said the taxi driver should be punished rather than herself. (Reportedly, he was given about 100 lashes and then released.) Atefah’s death sentence was upheld by the Supreme Court of Iran and she was hung three months after her trial.

More Islam in Western societies, please. And less racist expectation that Western Muslims should integrate and assimilate when they come here is obviously needed. What could possibly go wrong.






In 1955, 23 year old John Graham murdered his mother and 43 others by putting a bomb in her luggage when she took a flight without him. He wanted to cash in about $330,000 (today's money) in life insurance money that he purchased from a terminal in the airport minus before she took off.

“As far as feeling remorse for those people, I don’t. I can’t help it. Everybody pays their way and they take and they take their chances. That’s just the way it goes.”

Here he is being taken out of his cell to make his walk to the execution chamber.




A regional boss of the Zetas laughed as he used an axe to chop up a 6-year-old girl in front of her bawling parents, telling the father it was “so you can remember me,” an eyewitness testified Wednesday at the San Antonio trial of the accused cartel figure.

Marciano “Chano” Millan Vasquez then ordered the girl’s parents hacked to death, said the witness, a 39-year-old convicted marijuana trafficker.


Keeping your Valentine's Day tradition even when only one of you is left. That's his wife's ashes in the bottle opposite him:

Mother finds baby dead, calls 911 while screaming at the father for murdering the baby (News clip):


This clothes is made and processed by the Chinese Xuzhou (徐州) Prison. Prisoners’ work hours: 300 hours/month, compensation: 90 dollars/month. Processing electronic and informatics related products. [The prison] uses the disciplinary team at prison area #11 to brutally physically torture and abuse the prisoners, causing deaths and disability. Send this message to internal and humanity organizations including UN, EU, TWO, USCC, MERICS, AICHR, HK, France, Germany, and Japan etc. to investigate how Chinese prisons achieve to have processed more than 10 billions of clothes and vast amount of electronics and IT products through illegal means. Collaborators with prisons include national brands: Huawei, ZTE, Xiaomi, Lenovo, Vina Sanxin, Bosideng, and Double Star. [A bunch of personal information including name and address that I am not translating here.] The Chinese lawyer who was supposed to defend the prisoners’ right has been oppressed by the extremist politicians, so I risk my life to ask for help from the international society. SOS, SOS, SOS.”

Re. Shasta Gorene from the above post - here she is entering a Denny's with her kidnapper/family murderer at about 2am, almost seven weeks after she and her brother were kidnapped.




As they walked in the door, they passed two young men hanging around outside. One of them recognised Shasta from a billboard, and called his girlfriend inside the Denny's. A waitress had already recognised Shasta, so she alerted her supervisor, called 911, and she and the two guys outside positioned themselves to prevent Joseph Duncan from leaving the diner. Ten minutes later the cops showed up and he was caught. He's now on death row and is also serving an additional 11 consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole. His criminal record began at age 15, when he was 17 he was sentenced to 20 years for sexually assaulting a boy (he served 14 of them) and he's been out of jail for a total of six years in his adult life. He's been convicted of 5 murders and confessed to killing another two children.

Couple from one of those anonymous reddit threads, this one something like "what broke you?". Authenticity certainly not guaranteed, but something a little different for the thread:

My 13 year old died in Peru after getting caught in a whirlpool. We were on vacation. His mom (my ex) blamed me for his death and our other son also blames me so he doesn’t speak to me. He’s now 13 too. I don’t force him to see me. When I drive home from work, I pretend that I am talking to my son about how his day was at school, what kind of music he wants to listen to, what he wants for dinner, etc. That is why I haven’t gotten a new car. There are just too many memories.

I’m a gay, closeted, middle-aged man married to a woman for a long time. My secret double life involves occasionally visiting gay night clubs, among other things.

On June 12, 2016 I was at the PULSE night club, enjoying Latino night (I’m not, but I enjoy Latino men for the most part). When the shooting started, I was on the far end of the club, getting a drink. I was nearly herded into the bathroom where a last-stand and breach occurred, but instead went along the wall and was able to exit. (It turns out later a dude I had bought drinks for occasionally was killed in the shooting).

I took a ricochet to the back of my calf which touched bone but didn’t break it. Bled a lot. Once outside, I immediately got clear of the area, made my way to my car which was parked a distance away, and then retreated to my office, about 15 minutes away. I did my best field dressing of the wound, stabilizing it and stopping the seeping bleeding for the most part.

I ended up seeing my regular doctor the next morning as soon as he opened. He freaked the f**k out, told me it was a mandatory reporting situation, and then sent me to the ER. I refused that plan, told him to give my information to the police. The police eventually did contact me, and I referred them to my lawyer. I worked my lawyer to give a statement to the police under confidential terms. They immediately put me in touch with the FBI. Meanwhile, about 24 hours had gone by, and my wound hurt like hell but was no longer weeping blood. The FBI was not playing around, and was very aggressive with my lawyer.

I ended up getting treatment from the hospital, a consult with a surgeon, who removed the shrapnel. I told my wife/kids that I injured my calf during an early morning run, and wore a compression sock to hide the wound. The surgery to remove the fragment followed a few days later, and was uneventful, except the FBI was there to retrieve the fragment. A plastic surgeon did a slight touch up on the wound so it looks like a mole was removed.

No one in the entire world knows what happened and how PULSE affected me. I sometimes have violent and horrible flashbacks of the scene inside PULSE. It is almost beyond words. Many of my asshole “friends” I am forced to socialize with in my “straight life” are horrible bigots, and not a few of them made cracks after the PULSE shooting mocking the victims, expressing glee, etc. It can be very difficult to keep it all inside.

My son, who would have been 21 this month, hanged himself on December 24 2016. Christmas Eve. My baby boy. Gone. There are no words to describe what it did to me, and what it did to the family. I went into his room midday expecting to find him still in bed. I found him hanging in the closet. Two lives were destroyed that day. The neighbors called the police when they heard my screams. I could not leave my house for months and lost my job. My older children had to move back in to support me because I refused to go out or clean the house or even eat food. My life had lost all purpose and for a while it was over. With time and extensive therapy I am just barely functional again, but life has never felt so empty. Not a moment goes by that I don’t think of him. I spend countless hours every day thinking of how I could have changed it. I know I could have.

My son was enrolled in a general health studies program at the local university. He didn’t have an interest in health and didn’t know what career he wanted to pursue, but I pushed him into it thinking it had the most potential for a successful career path and that he could develop an interest over time. He didn’t do very well in his first year but he made it through with a few failed courses. In April 2016 he had finished the winter term of his second year. I asked him about his final grades. He kept telling me that he hadn’t received them yet. I knew he had but I didn’t push. The summer term was starting and we had agreed that he would take summer courses for the courses he had failed in first year. He told me that he had applied to them, and he also told me he had finally received his second term grades and that he had passed them all. I didn’t know at the time that neither of those were true. It was all online so I never checked. If I did, I would have known that he had failed all five of his winter courses because he had stopped showing up to classes due to depression and he never applied to any summer courses. I found this out later in August when he broke down and admitted it all. I did not take it well. I was so upset that he had failed his program, that he lied to me so many times, and that he spent the entire summer pretending to go to class while doing other things. I called the school immediately and arranged an appointment with the faculty. I explained the situation to them and they agreed to let him reapply in the fall as a special student, and that if he did well in his remedial classes he would have a chance to continue his program where he left off. He didn’t want to do it. He wanted to take a break from school and apply to a different program later. I refused. I forced him to go back. I knew he hated it and I made him do it anyway. I didn’t do anything to treat his depression despite knowing about it. Instead I used it as an excuse to get him back in the program he never wanted to be in. I made him feel trapped enough to take his own life and I can never forgive myself for that.

Going back into his room was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. One step inside and I had a breakdown. Months passed. I tried again. Breakdown. We had to keep it locked until we hired a cleaner to pack his things because I could not bare to look at anything that belonged to him. I was only able to enter once the room was completely empty with just a few boxes stacked in the corner. Months later when I was home alone, I mustered the strength to open one of the boxes. Sitting on top was his laptop. I opened it and found it unlocked. I told myself I shouldn’t look through it. It would only ruin me again. But I had to. I had to know. Maybe he saw something that made him want to do it. Maybe he had messaged one of his friends, and maybe they said something to him. I just wanted to understand why. Why he would feel so hopeless that he had to take his own life. I found mostly things that would be normal to find in a young person’s browsing history. People’s Facebook profiles, assorted Youtube videos, a whole world I never knew. There was a file folder compiling images from what I could tell was shows/comics/games that he liked. I’ve never seen any of it before. I never cared. Another folder with images of my son with his friends from his high school. I didn’t recognize any of them. I never bothered to ask. I found a video in his Youtube history showcasing how to tie a noose. I had to stop there and weep until I had a migraine. Then I went back. I found entries on Kijiji. He was trying to sell his game consoles and games, which I later found out he spent his tuition to buy. I found a site called Liveleak, where there were a lot of entries on videos of people dying on camera. I believe he was trying to prepare himself for what he was going to do to himself. Then I found this site, Reddit, and I noticed his account still logged in. This one. Nothing could have prepared me for what I was about to find. Months of grief counseling undone in an instant. I had the worst breakdown of my life. Reading through everything he wrote in his last days tore my already scarred heart into a million shreds. He had reached out for help so many times. He felt so alone. He wrote that if he died I would only care about the money I wasted raising him. I thought I had felt the worst pain a person could feel until I read that. It was my fault. He felt so alone and hopeless in his last days. And I made him feel that way. I knew he wasn’t happy but I made him go back. I killed him.

If only I could tell him now that it doesn’t matter to me. That no school or degree was worth his life. That no matter what he did, I would love him no matter what. Oh how I miss my sweet boy. My baby is gone and I will never be okay again.

Read the article. His wasn't a "life of promise". He was a homeless loon and violent criminal with severe and long-term psychological problems. He was running around hitting random Asian women in the head with hammers because Asian women wouldn't fuck him, FFS. :patsch

Geez, I'm getting sick of this double standards bullshit. Make him a white guy running around hitting random Asian women with hammers because Asian women wouldn't fuck him, and see what tone this article takes about him. See how "promising" the white version of this nutcase would have been.
