I'm offended that nobody invited me to this party.
Your drunken bum Indian Christ was a waste of oxygen.

And not a single one to intervene during the obvious mental decay that Canadian Williams was undergoing prior to the event.
Anyway, I was also going to say that I am glad those who attended were able to find a sense of community.
It looks like it was a lovely gathering, well-attended, and with a nice cross-section of the community. The log poles look beautiful - a fine way to remember Williams and his untimely death at the hands of a rogue cop.
Never forget, Seattle.
I couldn't bring myself to go yesterday, as much as it could have helped. Largely because the problems are still there. Look at people like John Bailo who stoop to victim blaming and a twisted attempt at dehumanizing JT Williams.
I'm glad his family is finding more peace each and every day.
I don't feel sorry for the dead. Their problems are over. I feel sorry for those who are still alive and are ignored by literally everyone around them. Want to honor Williams? Do so by actually helping someone who can still benefit from your help.
You don't get out much anywhere do you?
Because looking at your prior comments (http://www.thestranger.com/seattle/Profi…) , for the PAX gamers thread you wrote
So there you have it. Alone. Isolated. Not invited.
Let's make sure Baconcat's problems don't go unnoticed.
Also...keep him away from knives.
Shooting someone who appears to be drunk and who is holding a deadly weapon = history's greatest monster.
This is a moving tribute to a troubled man who died horribly and unnecessarily. In death there is life, and I'm thrilled to see Rick Williams revive this part of his shattered culture. Something good comes of this.
So I hope you find your peace, John.
Anyone who mentions their native heritage or membership in a tribe is treated like an oddity and a guy in traditional regalia is practically a unicorn. People assume we're in constant decline and that we're on the brink of riding off into the sunset, even as our tribal enrollments are starting to increase again. We're largely invisible, which is why it's great to see people turn out for this event.
I think that's what I'll make today.
No, I understood Fnarf's deep and complicated wish of death for me. I do love to see that fat, pervy windbag chime in on Slog. Thanks Fnarf! Club Z apparently has WiFi?
I've grown weary of your pc powwow for dead chief thunderbird so I take my leave. It'd be nice if folks around here respected the police as much that useless piece of shit "woodcarver".
So, forgive me for being pissed off to see this outpouring of media-friendly/artistic grief over one person because he can be used as a symbol. Not a single one of you gave one single flying shit about this man when he was alive. Your crocodile tears and your need for this to be a 'message' or 'lesson' is sickening, just fucking sickening.
So fuck you, @14. And fuck you, too, Baconcat.
I'd write my own paean about things I've done myself, but I feel like there's enough self-congratulating going on here.
Clearly the problem is you, 'cause reality and a basic sense of humanity is not sinking in brother.
Jealous much? I think you are. Leave your shitty anonymous comments, go ahead. Wooo! Do you feel smart? John T was a human being, a real human that people loved. John has a family who loves him, and they are mourning his death. He had a right to live. Everyone has a right to live. People fall, and we try to pick them up. It is not for YOU to judge, what makes a human.
As I looked through the photos again just now, I was struck by the dignity of all the folks you shot, the folks that some of these sad, hateful people not only want to dismiss as human beings, but also expend the energy to post their thoughts. The strength that we can see in these pictures will never waver in the face of this small and pathetic group of trolls.
Whether you 'approve' of his life, or what he did with it, he was still a human, with a right to live. He was loved by MANY, most of all his family, who were never far away. And if you cannot understand that, then may your creator have mercy on your soul, or lack of one.
