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.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOST

This is atrocious. . By the time everyone wakes up.. i fear it will be too late..

Sadly the US is a police state and justice is a dream

"I’ve been a deep believer my whole life. 18 years as a Southern Baptist. More than 40 years as a mainline Protestant. I’m an ordained pastor. But it’s just stopped making sense to me. You see people doing terrible things in the name of religion, and you think: ‘Those people believe just as strongly as I do. They’re just as convinced as I am.’ And it just doesn’t make sense anymore. It doesn’t make sense to believe in a God that dabbles in people’s lives. If a plane crashes, and one person survives, everyone thanks God. They say: ‘God had a purpose for that person. God saved her for a reason!’ Do we not realize how cruel that is? Do we not realize how cruel it is to say that if God had a purpose for that person, he also had a purpose in killing everyone else on that plane? And a purpose in starving millions of children? A purpose in slavery and genocide? For every time you say that there’s a purpose behind one person’s success, you invalidate billions of people. You say there is a purpose to their suffering. And that’s just cruel."

I can’t say I have completely lost faith but I had a thought experiment pop in my head and it unnerved me. You hold out your hands and in one you have a $100 dollar bill and the other a live grenade about to explode. You ask a person to choose which one they want. Technically the person you ask has free will and pick either but you are pretty certain almost know one will pick the grenade. To expand on that God as defined in most Western cultures as omnipresent and all knowing therefore even thou you are born with a free will God already knows what decisions you will make so technically you have no free will and by extension no culpability since everything is pre-ordained by God because already knows what decisions you will make and actions you will take. This can be used to justify untold evil since technically it is all been arranged for.

The Borowitz Report: Nation Debates Extremely Complex Issue of Children Firing Military Weapons

“Much like the long-running national debates about jumping off a roof, licking electrical sockets, and gargling with thumbtacks, the vexing question of whether children should fire military weapons does not appear headed for a swift resolution.”

Sadly due to the lax of an apex predator capable of culling the weak and unhealthy among the human race the species has devised complex and surprising ways to remove fellow humans from the gene pool.

What the NRA tweeted from its NRA Women account less than two days after a 9-year-old girl accidentally shot and killed a gun range instructor who was teaching her how to use an Uzi. The tweet was deleted about an hour after it was posted without explanation, according to Huffington Post. 

Yeah why the !@#$%* was a nine year old handed a difficult to handle automatic weapon. Even the Al Shabob knows you teach a child to fire a Kalashnikov first. I may have gotten the wrong lesson from this tragedy.
