writing tip #921:

nine out of ten readers do not notice mathematical inconsistencies in novels. the other two are fuckin nerds and should be ignored

writing tip #920:

pick an adjective, any adjective. use this adjective right before a character dies, and only then. soon, your readers will start to associate the adjective with emotional trauma. end your story happily. then have the last word be that adjective

apostrophes are really the tears of the words you horrifically merged together. there are no right or wrong places to put apostrophes. there is only pain




Ryo Oyamada, a 24 year old student from Japan, was struck and killed by an NYPD vehicle in a hit & run.  Witnesses say the police car had no lights or sirens on and was going over 70 mph.  The released footage by NYPD was proven to be heavily altered in a cover-up, showing “lights” on the vehicle, when compared to footage from the NY Housing Authority on the same street with the same timestamp. 

On a personal note: I know that this will probably not be shared or reblogged very much, because Asians are not very prominent in American culture.  I understand this, because Asians (like me) are partially at fault for being so passive.  But I am begging you to please consider signing this petition out of human decency.  Ryo was just a student walking home, then struck by a nearly silent police cruiser going at excess speed, and the NYPD covered it up. 

Here is the side-by-side comparison of the released video footage, including updates from the case.  *Edit*  This article contains a link to a graphic video moments after the crash, showing the body of Ryo Oyamada and NY citizens yelling at the police.  Please advise, it is highly disturbing. 

And the following is an excerpt from the petition, which as of now only has 286 signatures.
