We just reported that Robert Downey Jr is in talks with Marvel to return for “The Avengers 2” and “The Avengers 3.” But the actor isn’t even discussing “Iron Man 4,” and we may now know why.
I am so fucking disgusted right now. Nice to know RDJ is the only one they want to pay anything at all. How come he got so much fucking money compared to everyone else? SMH.
A Washington, D.C. police officer who fired multiple shots into a car with three transgender women and their friends is getting off easy. The officer, 48-year-old Kenneth Furr, was sentenced yesterday “to three years of supervised probation, a $150 fine, and 100 hours of community service,” the Washington Blade reports. The transgender community in D.C. has reacted with outrage.
The D.C. Superior Court Judge, Russell Canan, also sentenced Furr “to five years in prison but suspended all but 14 months of the prison term and credited Furr with the 14 months he already served between the time of his arrest and his trial last October,” the publication reported. The officer was released from jail while he awaits sentencing for his conviction on charges of assault and solicitation for prostitution. Furr was acquitted on the more serious charges of assault with intent to kill with a weapon.
The judge also ordered the officer to stay away from D.C.’s well known areas for transgender prostitution.
“This result is the product of a legal system that constantly devalues trans lives, particularly trans people of color,” Jason Terry, an activist with the D.C. Trans Coalition, told the Blade. “Officer Furr’s defense team actively sought to portray the victims as somehow deserving of this violence, and apparently they succeeded. If roles had been reversed and a black trans woman had gotten drunk and shot a gun at a police officer, the results would be drastically different.”
The case revolves around events that occurred in August 2011. On a Washington, D.C. street, Furr asked one of the transgender woman for sex for money. After the woman refused, Furr followed her to a CVS store and, when he was outside the store, pointed a gun at the transgender woman. After the officer drove away, the group of transgender woman and their male friends followed him, until Furr stopped his car and fired his gun at the car.
Then, “one of the male friends driving the vehicle ducked to avoid being shot and unintentionally rammed the car into Furr’s car, witnesses testified,” the Blade reports. “Furr responded by climbing on the hood of the car occupied by the transgender women and their friends and fired five times through the front windshield, causing three of the occupants to suffer non-fatal gunshot wounds.”
When D.C. police came to the scene, they arrested Furr, who had a “blood alcohol level twice the legal limit under D.C. law,” according to the publication.
The Washington Blade also reports that Furr’s attorney seems to have convinced the jury that Furr was acting in self-defense, which is why he was not convicted on the more serious charges.
While Furr is getting off relatively easy legally, the case will have ramifications for his job. D.C. police spokesperson Gwendolyn Crump told the Blade that Furr “has been suspended without pay and that the department will follow its standard procedure for dealing with an officer convicted of a felony.” The standard procedure, according to the Blade, is that “a felony conviction, especially one associated with violence, usually results in the firing of a police officer.”
What the everloving fuck.
Abusers are supported by society at large. This man did not “get” what he felt entitled to and went on a rampage without nearly enough severity for his actions. I mean, see how pissed he got that someone had the audacity not to stay in their place? Rape culture grants him humanity he does not deserve. This country is built upon the twisted and warped infrastructure of rape, and Kenneth Furr was just yet another of the infinite products of such a completely vile system. I hope someone has the good sense to check what the little shit is hiding in his house, or better yet, just spirit this fucker the hell away.
This is the most disgusting and disturbing shit I have read in a while.
What are your thoughts? Feel free to share! :)
Magneto is by far my favorite character, but combining this with the “Xavier is no longer his equal” declaration of a while back…
Tried to track this down. Was this it?
While Vaughn says he has some “fun ideas” for more mutants to include in a possible sequel, the director told MovieWeb that there wouldn’t be too many characters added. In fact, Vaughn says there’s really only one. “We will only have one more new character. I won’t say who he…I won’t say who he or she is! But we will only be bringing one more new character in. Because, I think, as Professor X is in a wheelchair, Magneto needs to have a nemesis he can fight with. Someone that will be his equal. I know who it is.”
I’m just going to go imagine Charles doing pullups with his chair now. Dammit.
Deep breaths. James McAvoy has played a disabled character before, he seems to be aware of some of the issues, he wanted Charles doing wheelchair rugby. Crossing fingers that if nothing else, McAvoy can get some of his ideas in there.
Ick really pissed at the discriminatory remarks because Charles is disabled. Fuckers.
(trigger warning for rape, victim-blaming, misogyny)
LIZ TROTTA, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: “But while all of this is going on, just a few weeks ago, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta commented on a new Pentagon report on sexual abuse in the military. I think they have actually discovered there is a difference between men and women. And the sexual abuse report says that there has been, since 2006, a 64% increase in violent sexual assaults. Now, what did they expect? These people are in close contact, the whole airing of this issue has never been done by Congress, it’s strictly been a question of pressure from the feminist.
“And the feminists have also directed them, really, to spend a lot of money. They have sexual counselors all over the place, victims’ advocates, sexual response coordinators. … So, you have this whole bureaucracy upon bureaucracy being built up with all kinds of levels of people to support women in the military who are now being raped too much.”
Today on Fox News: “Rape: How much is too much?”
