TWW is The Warped Woodturner who is a local artist living in a suburb of Springbrook, WI (pop 87). His mission is to use a wood lathe to make interesting but mostly useless objects from locally-sequestered carbon for tourists to bring back to the city to give to people they had to buy something for but don't like that well. His target market is the senior citizens since their vision is not as good as it used to be so cannot see the defects as well.

New York state police officer is hero for shooting unarmed white man running away?


"The sergeant who captured fugitive David Sweat is a 21-year-veteran who was hailed as a hero by New York's governor for opening fire after the inmate ran from him toward a tree line near the Canadian border."

So why is this police officer a hero for shooting a white gun running away and those who shoot unarmed black people running or maybe not even running away evil villains??  The escaped prisoner was running away and not an immediate threat to the officer. If the prisoner belong to a minority group would the officer still be a hero?  

Wait.  TWW finally gets it.  All lives matter equally but some lives matter more equally than others.
