Rick Rypien
May 16,1984 - August 15, 2011
Even heroes have the right to bleed

27-year-old Rick Rypien had battled depression for almost a decade when he killed himself on 15 August 2011.

Six weeks earlier, Rypien had signed a $700,000 contract with the Winnipeg Jets.

Rypien was known as a man of few words, who rarely talked about his troubles. Though undrafted, Rypien was signed by Vancouver in 2005 after a junior career in which he was captain of the Regina Pats in Saskatchewan. While he was with the Pats, his girlfriend was killed in a car accident.

The Vancouver Canucks became award of Rypien’s mental health during their 2008 training camp and the team coordinated his treatment as long as he played for them. He was placed on a leave of absence twice, only stating that he had dealt with “a personal matter, a rare issue. I missed a lot of hockey, but certain things needed to be dealt with.”

Rypien seemed ready to return to hockey, and was scheduled to fly from Calgary to Winnipeg on the 15th. The day before he texted the Jets assistant manager to see if he could get some ice time after he got an MRI on an injured knee. “Everything’s set for you,” he texted Rypien. “See you in the morning.” When Rypien didn’t arrive the next day, the Jets became concerned, and more concerned when they couldn’t reach him and discovered that he had not gotten on the plane. The organization then saw a post on Rypien’s Facebook page, “R.I.P., Rick Rypien.”

you know what kills me, what really haunts my deepest darkest dreams? harry using lumos at privet drive in prisoner of azkaban to do his homework. WARNER BROTHERS! Harry Potter WAS NOT ALLOWED TO DO MAGIC OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL. THAT’S WHY HE RAN AWAY AFTER BLOWING UP HIS FUCKING AUNT. Do you understand the MAJOR continuity problem in your adaptation of this billion-dollar book series? DO YOU UNDERSTAND?

This is the incident report that the Ferguson police just produce. Now if you don’t know, this morning they FINALLY named the killer of Michael Brown as Darren Wilson. Along with naming Darren as the killer, the Ferguson police are now trying to link Michael Brown with a robbery that happened supposedly MOMENTS before. 

Michael was killed at 12:01 and this robbery was at 11:54. 

There are so many questions.

  1. We’ve seen the surveillance photos they’ve produced that shows someone who looks like Michael being aggressive with a store owner over an apparent box of swishers. (If you don’t know, Swishers are cigar papers you can pick up for like…2 for .50.
  2. They are saying that Officer Darren Wilson was responding to that robbery.
  3. They are calling it an STRONG ARMED ROBBERY
  4.  A strong armed robbery is using, involving, or threatening the use of physical force or violence to gain an objective:
  5. Okay, got that bullshit out of the way
  6. The dispatch tapes that were released mention NOTHING ABOUT A ROBBERY.
  7. NOT ONE WORD
  8. THE ONLY THING MENTIONED WAS A SHOOTING AND REQUEST FOR CROWD CONTROL.
  9. THAT’S IT
  10. So how did Officer Wilson FIND OUT about the robbery? 
  11. They’ve now listed Dorian Johnson (THE ONLY OTHER EYEWITNESS WHO WAS THERE) as the second accomplice to the robbery. 
  12. The same Dorian Johnson who has been trying (in vain) to talk with the Ferguson Police Department about Michael’s Death since LAST SATURDAY.
  13. So this man who is this SECOND SUSPECT IN A ROBBERY CASE IS PLEADING WITH YOU AND IS ALL OVER NATIONAL NEWS AND YOU ARE REFUSING TO SEE HIM. BUT HE’S A SUSPECT IN A ROBBERY. OKAY
  14. When Officer Wilson sees both Michael and Dorian his initial reaction was "GET THE FUCK ON THE SIDEWALK."
  15. Not any kind of reaction dealing with them being robbery suspects. 
  16. From some of the pictures (I’m not going to post them due to the family’s wishes) if you compare the footage from the store and the footage from Michael’s death, he’s swapped from Nike sandals to Sneakers. This red hat cannot be found (this is speculation).
  17. If the reason Office Wilson approached them was because they were suspects in an robbery WHY DIDN’T HE CALL IT IN? WHY DIDN’T HE FOLLOW PROCEDURE? WHY WOULD HE ROLL UP ON ROBBERY SUSPECTS IN HIS VEHICLE? WHY DID IT TAKE 6 DAYS FOR THIS TO BE ANNOUNCED?

I implore you. IMPLORE YOU to take a look into the presented facts of the case. This is just an incident report, we do not have access to the investigative report. There has been no reports presented of Michael’s autopsy and this report is contradictory of the second eye witnesses report.

None of this makes sense. 

They are putting Michael on trial to dehumanize him, villify him, to make him less human to justify his murder.

And at the end of the day, LET’S JUST SAY MICHAEL DID DO THIS…is petty theft (it was like 5 swisher sweets they say. That’s a two dollars and fifty sense) IS HIS MURDER, HIS EXECUTION, THIS UNARMED SURRENDING TEENAGE BOY, justified by this?

NO.

It’s not.

This is murder. Don’t let them put Michael on trial for HIS DEATH.

I don’t think one actress should play Aphrodite I think it should be multiple woman of different races and looks because beauty isn’t just white woman alone or black woman alone or Asian woman alone or any other race alone. everyone is beautiful and that is who Aphrodite is, she is beauty.

This should have more notes

she could look different for every person because beauty is in the eye of the beholder or whatever

yeesssssssss.
