I condemn in the strongest words possible the stigmatization of the mentally ill in the wake of mass shootings. Included below is a well sourced discussion thread that I had with Dr. Megan Ranney, leader of @AFFIRM, for #gunviolence prevention. usnews.com/opinion/policy…
The media and legislators must stop pointing blame at the mentally ill with a broad brush in the wake of shootings. It is so stigmatizing. Doesn't appropriately target the small subset of VIOLENT individuals and worsens the ability of people with mental illness to get care.

The guy who violently assaulted me last year is allowed to come to #34C3. I was notified about it on Christmas Eve when I was at the buildup.
Aggravated assault here stands for hurting me and strangling me several times till I couldn't breathe. I did not see it coming, and I did not fight back.
And I reported that to #34C3 on August 31 requesting a safe event. I made all my documents available upon request.
#34C3 still admitted him because in this situation "we do not really know what happened" even after providing official documents regarding the event.
Refuse Fascism's flyers and website CLAIM they want peaceful protest until Trump is out of office. Sounds harmless, until you look closely at who is behind this group. Hint: Nov. 4th is RUSSIA'S UNITY DAY. 🇷🇺🇷🇺🇷🇺 Thread 1 #ThursdayThoughts#GeeksResist#RefuseFascism
