Baby you gave me bad ideas
Baby you left me sad and high…

“At 3am on 28 May, Alecia Phonesavanh was asleep in the room she was temporarily occupying together with her husband and four children in the small town of Cornelia, Georgia. Her baby, 18-month-old Bou Bou, was sleeping peacefully in his cot.
 
Suddenly there was a loud bang and several strangers dressed in black burst into the room. A blinding flash burst out with a deafening roar from the direction of the cot. Amid the confusion, Phonesavanh could see her husband pinned down and handcuffed under one of the men in black, and while her son was being held by another. Everyone was yelling, screaming, crying. “I kept asking the officers to let me have my baby, but they said shut up and sit down,” she said.
 
As the pandemonium died down, it became clear that the strangers in black were a Swat team of police officers from the local Habersham County force – they had raided the house on the incorrect assumption that occupants were involved in drugs. It also became clear to Phonesavanh that something had happened to Bou Bou and that the officers had taken him away.
 
“They told me that they had taken my baby to the hospital. They said he was fine he had only lost a tooth, but they wanted him in for observation,” Phonesavanh said.
 
When she got to the hospital she was horrified by what she saw. Bou Bou was in a medically-induced coma in the intensive care unit of Brady Memorial hospital. “His face was blown open. He had a hole in his chest that left his rib-cage visible.”
 
The Swat team that burst into the Phonesavanh’s room looking for a drug dealer had deployed a tactic commonly used by the US military in warzones, and increasingly by domestic police forces across the US. They threw an explosive device called a flashbang that is designed to distract and temporarily blind suspects to allow officers to overpower and detain them. The device had landed in Bou Bou’s cot and detonated in the baby’s face.”

“Last night, children were killed as they slept next to their parents on the floor of a classroom in a UN-designated shelter in Gaza. Children killed in their sleep; this is an affront to all of us, a source of universal shame. Today the world stands disgraced.”

—   

United Nations officials described the killing of sleeping children as a disgrace to the world and accused Israel of a serious violation of international law after a school in Gaza being used to shelter Palestinian families was shelled on Wednesday.

At least 15 people, mostly children and women, died when the school in Jabaliya refugee camp was hit by five shells during a night of relentless bombardment across Gaza. More than 100 people were injured. Via the guardian

The old photo Steve Rogers always keeps in his pocket.

You know why this breaks my heart? Because every time we see Bucky after Zola has laid hands on him he either has a drink or a gun in his hand. He’s never unarmed, either against his own mind, or against the enemies around him.
Anyone who says the Winter Soldier was born after Bucky’s fall aren’t paying attention. Bucky Barnes, as was, never came back from that lab, not really.The person who came back was on the first step of the path to the Winter Soldier.
That’s the man who carries a gun like it’s an extension of himself. That’s the man who closes himself in darkness and soaks his mind in spirits to cloud what he has experienced. That’s a man who smiles and plays a part because he has to, because if anyone looks to close, they will see he’s not the same man.
Bucky Barnes was a scared kid who went to war.
The Winter Soldier is what happened to him while he was there. It didn’t start after the war. It started that night when he and his platoon were taken by the Red Skull. That was when Bucky Barnes died.
