Iceland grieves after police kill a man for the first time in its history
December 5, 2013
It was an unprecedented headline in Iceland this week — a man shot to death by police.
"The nation was in shock. This does not happen in our country," said Thora Arnorsdottir, news editor at RUV, the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service.
She was referring to a 59-year old man who was shot by police on Monday. The man, who started shooting at police when they entered his building, had a history of mental illness.
It’s the first time someone has been killed by armed police in Iceland since it became an independent republic in 1944. Police don’t even carry weapons, usually. Violent crime in Iceland is almost non-existent.
"The nation does not want its police force to carry weapons because it’s dangerous, it’s threatening," Arnorsdottir says. "It’s a part of the culture. Guns are used to go hunting as a sport, but you never see a gun."
In fact, Iceland isn’t anti-gun. In terms of per-capita gun ownership, Iceland ranks 15th in the world. Still, this incident was so rare that neighbors of the man shot were comparing the shooting to a scene from an American film.
The Icelandic police department said officers involved will go through grief counseling. And the police department has already apologized to the family of the man who died — though not necessarily because they did anything wrong.
"I think it’s respectful," Arnorsdottir says, “because no one wants to take another person’s life. “
There are still a number of questions to be answered, including why police didn’t first try to negotiate with man before entering his building.
"A part of the great thing of living in this country is that you can enter parliament and the only thing they ask you to do is to turn off your cellphone, so you don’t disturb the parliamentarians while they’re talking. We do not have armed guards following our prime minister or president. That’s a part of the great thing of living in a peaceful society. We do not want to change that. "
can you even imagine if the u.s. mourned people killed by police
like a real national outpouring
that moment of silence should last for years
The kind of gun culture I approve of.
This is so surreal to me I can’t even comprehend
seriously from a U.S perspective this is like reading really eerie satire. look what gun-culture has done to us
i hope the family of that man who was killed, is finding peace in the show of love from their neighbors and compatriots.
This is the best.

, a South African politician who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999, the first ever to be elected in a fully representative democratic election. Before being elected President, Mandela was a militant anti-apartheid activist, and the leader and co-founder of Umkhonto we Sizwe, the armed wing of the African National Congress (ANC). In 1962 he was arrested and convicted of sabotage and other charges, and sentenced to life imprisonment. Mandela went on to serve 27 years in prison, spending many of these years on Robben Island. Following his release from prison on 11 February 1990, Mandela led his party in the negotiations that led to the establishment of democracy in 1994. As President, he frequently gave priority to reconciliation, while introducing policies aimed at combating poverty and inequality in South Africa.

We better reblog this as much as we can 2013 is almost over
tumblr really seems to dislike bisexuality.
female character shows interest in men and women? SHES A LESBIAN!!! SAYING OTHERWISE MEANS YOURE A HOMOPHOBE AND JUST WANT TO PAIR HER UP WITH GUYS SO SHES “STRAIGHT” (actually heard that one)
male character shows interest in women and men? HE’S GAY!!! GAY GAY GAY GAY! WHAT, “INTEREST IN FEMALE CHARACTER 3”?? NO HE’S GAY SUCK IT FANBOYS!!!
there is barely any positive representation of bisexuals in media already, but while people outside tumblr tend to ignore the same-sex aspect, tumblr just straight out ignores the fact that the character likes the other sex too, and tells people who point that out that they’re being homophobic (like back when rose lalonde dated kanaya)
i’m not even bisexual, but it pisses me off so much how they experience discrimination and ridicule from both straight people (for liking the same sex) and gay people (for being “not queer” enough and appropriating “queerness”)
idk, i just wish for more positive representation of bisexuals.
