The Human Under the Numbers

sadako hospital 1955 noretouch

The story of Anne Frank is tragic. If not for the words that she wrote in her diary, she would be a digit of history. Her diary is relatable, and the thoughts that collected inside her being during a horrible time in history gives the reader an idea of who she was. She is immortalized because of the little things that she wrote, not because of any great deeds recorded by others. As a victim of tyranny she is remembered as an innocent murdered. She is a story found inside the numbers. Thanks to her diary, we have a human figure to know and mourn, despite the mechanized bureaucratic...

After Two Years, Cop Charged For Shooting Mentally Ill Man and His Parents at Costco

costco cop 1050x525

As TFTP reported in June of 2019, panic erupted inside a Corona, California Costco as multiple people were injured and one man was killed during a shooting. Dozens of  shoppers immediately dropped to the ground as fears of the next mass shooting filled their thoughts. However, it turns out the “mass shooter” was an LAPD cop and his unarmed victims were a mentally disabled non-verbal man and his parents. After months of slow playing and refusing to release the surveillance footage, the Riverside County District Attorney announced that they would not charge the cop. Now however, over two...

Dear Cenk Uygur, Supporting Government is Worse Than Supporting the Ku Klux Klan

dear cenk uygur, supporting government is worse than supporting the ku klux klan

https://youtu.be/ldmXyqAnbmI Mankind is a mixture of good and evil, of cooperative and criminal tendencies. In my view, the anarchist society is one which maximizes the tendencies for the good and the cooperative, while it minimizes both the opportunity and the moral legitimacy of the evil and the criminal. If the anarchist view is correct, and the State is indeed the great legalized and socially legitimated channel for all manner of antisocial crime — theft, oppression, mass murder — on a massive scale, then surely the abolition of such an engine of crime can do nothing but favor the...

Family Who Says They Do Not Have COVID-19 Under ‘Forced Quarantine’ by Police

Screen Shot 2020 03 18 At 9.49.07 Pm

Nelson County, KY — A family has been forcibly quarantined in their home this week with police officers keeping them under 24-hour surveillance because a man in the home is accused of having the COVID-19 virus. According to multiple news reports and even Kentucky governor Andy Beshear, this man fled the hospital after being diagnosed with the disease and refused to self-quarantine, forcing police to be dispatched to his home. “It’s a step I hoped that I’d never have to take,” Beshear said in a conference on Saturday. “But I can’t allow one person who we know has this virus to refuse to...

Confirmed: Elliott Abrams’s Defense of Mass Murder Was Based on Lies

In The Nation, Eric Alterman reminds us of Elliot Abrams's lying on behalf of Salvadoran death squads in the Reagan years. This was 20 years before the W. Bush administration's "El Salvador Option" in Iraq, using the Badr Corps to hunt and kill Sunnis, which backfired, leading to Abrams's "Redirection" policy to start tilting back toward al Qaeda. Later he thankfully botched a coup in...

No Charges for Cop Who Gunned Down Unarmed Mentally Ill Man and His Parents in Costco

Los Angeles, CA — As TFTP reported in June, panic erupted inside a Corona, California Costco as multiple people were injured and one man was killed during a shooting. Dozens of  shoppers immediately dropped to the ground as fears of the next mass shooting filled their thoughts. However, it turns out the “mass shooter” was an LAPD cop and his unarmed victims were a mentally disabled non-verbal man and his parents. After months of slow playing and refusing to release the surveillance footage, the Riverside County District Attorney announced that they will not be charging the cop. The...

New Zealand Mass Murderer Tied to Obama and Trump’s Ukrainian Nazis

Ali Soufan, the former FBI agent, reports: "In the wake of the New Zealand mosque attacks, links have emerged between the shooter, Brent Tarrant, and a Ukrainian ultra-nationalist, white supremacist paramilitary organization called the Azov Battalion. Tarrant’s manifesto alleges that he visited the country during his many travels abroad, and the flak jacket that Tarrant wore during the assault featured a symbol commonly used by the Azov Battalion. Tarrant’s transnational ties go beyond Ukraine, however. Tarrant claimed that he was in touch with Anders Behring Breivik, the Norwegian...

Republican, Democrat, Gun-Nut, Muslim? Whodunit Matters, Even Though It Shouldn’t

In modern America, every mass murder has two essential characteristics. First, the number murdered. Second, the group identity of the murderer. And not necessarily in that order. Whenever a mass murder pops up in the news, many viewers hasten to find out whodunit - where "whodunit" isn't a person, but an affiliation. Is the murderer a Muslim? A non-Muslim who used a gun? A Democrat? Republican? Or just a lone nut who wasn't a "gun nut"? Depraved Reaction? On the surface, this seems like a depraved reaction to human suffering. After the October 1 Last Vegas shooting, Historian Peter...
