The aftermath dislocation principle parts I and II

A miniature post-apocalyptic world, burned, looted and devoid of all human life apart from a swell of police make up british artist james cauty’s ‘the aftermath dislocation principle part I’. 

The construction is a vast 1:87 scale model detailing the a desolate, charred aftermath of what appears to have been a crazed riot in london. the only visible populace are the 5,000 or so police at the scene armed with vans and weapons ready to control and quell. the whole scene is set into motion for the exhibition, as ambulance and street lights strobe in the darkness. as part of the show the 300 glass jars with tiny dystopian scenes that make up ‘the aftermath dislocation principle part II’ are on diplay. locked inside jars are isolated vignettes of the riot, capturing specific moments of the dramatic incident. the artwork is a product of months of labor intensive work, building the model using traditional techniques. after its completion, he shattered, smashed, and broke the construction to emulate a destructive scene.

South Carolina Prosecutors Say Stand Your Ground Doesn’t Apply To Victims Of Domestic Violence

note-a-bear:

abbyjean:

South Carolina is one of more than 20 states that has passed an expansive Stand Your Ground law authorizing individuals to use deadly force in self-defense. The law has been used to protect a man who killed an innocent bystanderwhile pointing his gun at several teens he called “women thugs.” But prosecutors in Charleston are drawing the line at domestic violence.

In the cases of women who claim they feared for their lives when confronted with violent intimate abusers, prosecutors say the Stand Your Ground law shouldn’t apply.

“(The Legislature’s) intent … was to provide law-abiding citizens greater protections from external threats in the form of intruders and attackers,” prosecutor Culver Kidd told the Post and Courier. “We believe that applying the statute so that its reach into our homes and personal relationships is inconsistent with (its) wording and intent.”

oh. well then.

Once again we see who SYG is REALLY for.

Current UK Government Plan of Action:

squall-loire:

  1. Persecute the poor, sick and disabled. Drive them as far into poverty as possible, and they will eventually turn to crime out of necessity.
  2. Repeal the Human Rights Act
  3. Arrest all the “criminals” created by step 1.
  4. Adopt institutionalised slavery similar to that used in U.S. prisons to prop up a failing economy with cheap labour.
  5. Use statistics to show how well you’ve reduced the number of people claiming benefits.
  6. PROFIT
