    Sad but true! That’s precisely why many teenagers turn to gangs. If the police can’t protect them, who will?

    Anyone here familiar with fine arts?
    Ever heard of a painting by Jean Michel Basquiat called “The irony of the black policeman”?

    Can you spot the notorious cold-war “red phone”?

    The suitcase should read “Viking Arms co.” as a nod to the crooked arms dealer in “Tintin and the Broken Ear”, the line “It will all be okay, mr” President" that sounds like famous last words is a nod to a famous scene in the last, speculative episode of “Once Upon a Time…Man”. This is what the president’s idiotic yes men chant over and over again…as the Earth is about to be blown into a nuclear holocaust.

    Minutes later in the episode, we learn that the Earth was not, actually blown up but this was all speculation, a warning to future generations to be careful with the planet and other humans. That historical kids show was a masterpiece, very entertaining to kids with the main cast traveling through the ages and yet very straightforward about the darker times in history like slavery, the inquisition, the native american genocide and World War 2.
    Albert Barillé, the creator of the series, was one of the great european artists of that generation, like Hergé and Goscinny, who had seen their countries go through the unthinkable with two World Wars and took it on themselves to teach children so they don’t repeat the mistakes of their ancestors.

    The screenshots where Cerberus creeps out of the tv screen are taken out from the infamous viral video “Collateral Murder” and the whole thing is almost a wish that Cerberus could go twelve years back in time, when Bush Jr. was trying oh so hard to make the World believe that Saddam was behind the september 11 attacks and had WMDs, and warn him that there is something much worse than Saddam and his (non-existent) plastic shredders, it’s a little Gordian knot we now call ISIL.

    It’s not that clear in the cartoon itself but the experiment mentioned by Cerberus and the police officer is the infamous Stanford Prison Experiment. If you had a psychology class in university or college, you probably remember it as “the experiment that worked way too well”. It was supposed to last weeks, it had to be stopped after only 6 days.
    If there was ever an experiment that put the devil inside all of us into under a microscope, well it’s certainly that one. Cerberus couldn’t visit the mortals without mentionning it.

    Last summer, during the first riots in Ferguson, I read an article on Cracked.com about the increasing militarization of police forces and it reminded me of the scary, but necessary discoveries of that study: all you have to do to make perfectly sane people behave like grade A a**holes is to divide them between all powerful “guards” and powerless “prisoners”…or “teachers” and “savage children”, like in residential schools, or “border guards” (or worse yet, border vigilantes) and “illegal aliens”.

    This is what is hapenning between every disfrenchised ethnic community and their police force. It’s hapenning in America’s black and hispanic ghettos, in Canada’s reserves and in France’s banlieues.

    ON THE BRIGHT SIDE:
    If that experiment proved that evil is not the product of people who received the wrong chromosome before birth, then good people are not born good either. We all have both inside of us. We should never let a bad experience put wall between ourselves and other people because of race, culture, religion, language, gender identity or sexual orientation. Deep inside, we all have the same capacity for anger, fear, despair, incomprehension but also the same capacity to put ourselves in someone else’s shoes.

    No matter if you are in Canada or the US, this is the end line to every anti-immigration arguement EVER; white people were not the first ones here anyway.

    Andrew Pilcher made a good “Smith” comic about that last summer, with a sheepdog and its sheep.

    If you’re a liberal, you call conservative people “sheeple”, and if you’re a conservative, you call liberals “sheeple”
