#gunviolence is an epidemic in the United States.

What caught our attention yesterday: the utterly horrifying #GilroyGarlicFestivalshooting . Details still emerging.

-----But there was more-------
Also this weekend, less heralded: Brooklyn festival shooting, in which at least 11 people were hurt. As many as at Gilroy. cnn.com/2019/07/28/us/…
And a shooting where a music video was being produced in Philly: 6abc.com/police-1-dead-…

THREAD. Let me tell you abt some myths around #suicide & how you can save lives. #suicideprevention
MYTH 1: Talking about suicide is a bad idea, as it may be seen as encouragement
FALSE. Rather than encouraging suicide, talking openly helps prevent suicide. 1/n
MYTH 2: A person who is suicidal is determined to die
FALSE. Au contraire, suicidal persons are often ambivalent about dying. Emotional support at the right time can help prevent suicide 2/n
MYTH 3: Most suicides happen without warning.
FALSE. Most suicides are preceded by warning signs, either verbal or behavioural. Many will talk to friends & relatives or doctors about wanting to die. Don't ignore it. That brings us to...3/n

1. My #ClintonBodyCount compilation for the week of June 3, 2019. They're back up to 1993 plane crash era averages. I'm sure @POTUS knows about this, so I'm going to go one level higher. What's #God's Twitter handle? "How long, Oh Lord?" God, we pray for justice, now!!!
2. Linda Collins-Smith, who called into #QAnon #PatriotsSoapbox channel in March, was found shot dead on June 4. Her body was unrecognizable. kait8.com/2019/06/05/for…
3. She was allegedly working to expose 27 million of #ClintonFoundation fraud in partnership with #Arkansas #DHHS, likely child trafficking.

India (Bhārat), aka Republic of India (Bhārat Gaṇarājya) constitutes a mosaic of paradoxes and contradictions starting with the existence of gigantic socio-economic disparities which are in sharp contrast with the spectacular technological development in most productive sectors.
Such contradictions reflect significant measurement discrepancies which, in India's case, could be on the order of hundreds of millions of people.
Furthermore, there is the problem of Islamic terrorists, who are trained abroad and find easy fuel in the contradictions within it.
Finally, there’s agriculture which, by some estimates, accounts for 90% of India’s water consumption. Farmers meet irrigation demands by indiscriminately extracting groundwater, which some say accounts for a quarter of the world’s groundwater usage.

What would National #SuicidePrevention Strategy for India look like:
1. We need to believe it is possible. With concerted effort China has dramatically reduced their suicide rates.
2. We need to implement evidence-based, low cost scalable solutions. They exist.
...contd 1/n
3. Need different strategies for sub-groups. Same solution won't work for students, young women, rural/urban, farmers etc.
4. #suicideprevention is an #intersectoral issue. All solutions do not lie in #health sector; #education #employment, #media #agriculture also imp....2/n
5. Recognise India's suicide epidemiology is different from the West. M:F ratio is 1.5:1 here while it's 4:1 in West. So more women relatively. 50% of suicides impulsive with no mental illness 🇮🇳 while 80% have mental illness in West...3/n

@CBSNews I'm going to say this and some of you won't like it....but it's the TRUTH:

I want everyone to notice how most of the Caucasian (white) people are talking around this discovery

"I hope their remains can be respect fully laid to rest"
"Maybe now they can rest in peace"
"So sad"
@CBSNews They've already moved on.
But most importantly, these are words to convince us "Black" people to move on.

Or they speaking about these 100 black bodies as if they can now be apart of some great mystery....a good will quest of sorts:
"Maybe their families can be found by DNA"
@CBSNews How many of the people with their soft words and motions of sympathy
ask questions like:
"Are any of the White men in my family responsible for these deaths?"

"Who murdered these men?"

"How many White people in this town knew?"

All these questions come to for Black people.
