    • My thoughts on capital punishment is that I'm largely against it, first off I struggle with the thought of our country as a whole killing someone but I also often find myself arguing the fact that if this person did something so terrible that life in prison is a much suited punishment as it means they get to live longer with what they did, death often is a release for people like that. The only exception I could see is if there is a solid case that a person is so terrible and is unable to be held captive which is a scenario likely not to happen.

    • Hi Tidbit! You are definitely my friend, my dear! I I just don’t understand how so many in the country have been working from home, because it is safest that way. I mean even the news anchors aren’t at work. The night shows are not at work! Granted yes the grocery workers, which my niece who is 60 works in a grocery store. She was working in the office but when they opened two hours early for the elderly people, they made her come in and do that shift as well as work the rest of her day. Like you, she has pre-existing conditions! Her heart only works about 40%. She has just she’s really not too well. And they still made her do that, when she was an office worker, not working with the public. I was just so angry! And as much as yes I know teachers will later life on the line for their kids. My daughter teaches special education. I know teachers. It just sickens me that especially in Phoenix, which by the way my niece and her whole family live, did they are planning on all day school. In the school building. I guess I thought Phoenix was in a spike. I guess I read the news backwards 🤔🤔🤔🤔 When we were locked down here in Northern Illinois, my special education teacher daughter had tremendous more paperwork to do every single day then she did in the classroom. And in the classroom in special education the paperwork because of IEP‘s etc. is enormous and itself. There is no time to do that during the day. That is all take home work. During lockdown, they expected teachers to be able to contact special education teachers every other day. Either via computer, or a phone call. Then it had to be charted. Well you cannot make a student logon. You cannot make a parent or student answer the phone. I thought she was gonna lose her ever loving mind, before the end of May. I was seriously concerned. And I didn’t know what to do! She honestly can’t stop teaching right now because when she gets 10 years in her some more student loans with some student loans will be forgiven because she is in a very low income building. That’s in the stipulations. She’s not just working there for that, but it is a very excellent perk, of working there! She works where she works, for the kids! Sorry I go on and on so much. I just have so much in my brain going on and all these thoughts and everything and not just about her my son his severe asthma and has been activated nearly 10 times. The more you get into baited to Morris Curtis you can get in the worse it is. So I’m concerned. I’m concerned, but we are being safe, but some people that have been caught safe and “end up getting covered 19. It’s just a fact. Or at least I feel like it’s a fact anyway! I will be thinking of you. I really well because I have such a deep concern for not only teachers but of course the students. I was a lunch lady for five years when my kids were in grade school. Talk about a low-level job, butone that I TRULY LOVED & TRIVED IN! Nicely I just love kids with my whole heart and that’s why this is so disturbing because people are going to die from this. From going back to school when we shouldn’t be going back to school, in my opinion there will be people that die. There could even be children they die. And children are getting very ill from COVID-19 repercussions as well. We don’t know the long-term about this! Nobody knows. I wish Pontus would stop saying “everything is fine because he has some believers and that is really terrible to be lying daily, to us America people. 😫 Take care! If you don’t have any good, really good masks my daughters boyfriend’s cousin makes them and actually has a clothing pet factory that had to work then from home but the ladies are actually truly seamstresses. I’m not trying to sell anything I’m not making anything on them. I’m just telling you my niece who is an actual physician said they are quite close to an N 95. Not all homemade masks are that close. I’m sure there are some but I haven’t seen them. I’m using a Norwex mask because it’s more light weight and it doesn’t hurt me as bad with my fibromyalgia. I am also instead of putting in the ear part around my ear which hurts me I use a hair clip and clip them in my hair. Oh and by the way they had face shields on sale at Sam’s Club! It’s just something to add to a mask now instead of which I’m sure you probably know. I only say that because I happen to be at the dollar general because I had to purchase something, and the girl checking me out was in a Face Shield but NO MASK. I Give. Up! I don’t you give up. I’ll just give up for both of us😳. 🤣 ✝️✌🏻💕😎😘😘😘😘😘😘

  • Sweden never had a lockdown, and while they saw a surge in excess deaths back in May/June, that figure now lies below the yearly average (i.e. the virus is under control). I'm in favour of opening up. I think we forget how important education is for kids. Online learning isn't a replacement.

Some of his classes are online and some, particularly studio classes (as he is an arts student) are in person in small groups. There’s also things on his campus like most social areas being closed, not allowing guests into dorms, and dining halls being take out only and not allowing sit down eating.

  • The death penalty isn't given to innocent people. The death penalty isn't given to people who did petty crimes or misdemeanors. Its given to actual psychopaths who have murdered people with full intent. Did this guy Phill talked about showed mercy for the family he killed? I can understand no cruel and unusual punishment, but how else can you "peacefully" kill someone??? Death isn't some fun experience to relax to.

  • I don’t typically chime in, but I’m playing catch up on my Philly D. As a huge criminology nerd, my view of executions have changed over the years. While I believe that there are crimes heinous enough to warrant execution, my studies have shown that the system is faulty. Most forensic evidence is bunk science and that which isn’t is too easily butched. Our criminal justice system has an enormous amount of flaws that lead to the arrest and conviction of too many innocent people. I could write a book explaining why, but I do think we need to do away with executions. Not because there aren’t people who deserve to die for their actions, but because the risk of the murder of innocent people who were falsely convicted, while relatively small, is too high.

  • I had already decided to keep my daughter home for this school year when her school was giving the option for a hybrid model or completely remote learning. I wasn't going to risk her life, especially since this push to open schools is 100% political. It has nothing to do with what is best for the kids. My daughter's school has since decided not to have any in school classes at all this year, for which I am very happy. It's not just the school kids. It's their families at home, which may include high risk people (baby siblings, grandparents, immuno-compromised people), it's the teachers, janitors, lunchroom workers, office workers, and other school support staff. And their families at home also! A huge portion of the population comes in contact with a school aged child on a daily basis.

  • I believe everyone has a right to live; but as soon as you deprive or attempt to deprive someone of this right, you forfeit your right to life. Capitol punishment is completely justified. The state can rightfully deprive monsters of life. Some crimes can't be forgiven here on earth and you give up your humanity when you commit them.

  • I work in a medium sized hospital in Sweden, near Gothenburg. I know people make fun of us because our government didn't adress the crisis like other countries, but we just had our first days of 0 confirmed cases of covid-19 in house. I basically live just like I would any other year of my life apart from not travelling (even within Sweden) and washing my hands more, and everyone else seems to be as well. We take great precautions when dealing with suspected or confirmed cases of course. We've all (at work) had the antibody test and no one has caught the virus yet. I just wonder how we didn't burn down our entire country with this approach, perhaps herd immunity wasn't such a bad idea even though I still think it sounds like it.

Pedophiles, rapists, murderers, and just career criminals of violent crimes. I don't see why we should waste time keeping them locked up, when we can just put one in the back of their head, and burn them. of course there would need to be a much more robust legal system to prevent false conviction.

  • Online schooling is hard for me to do, and im just thankful that I am old enough to go to college and make my own decisions on what happens to my education plan. Because if i was in high school, I would be forced to go to school when im terrified of getting sick. I personally have a lot of anxiety, enough to hinder my health if it gets too bad, and with the virus, I would have been surly terrified to the point where I was sick due to being so scared of getting COVID. We shouldn't force the schools to reopen unless it is 100 percent SAFE.

  • I'm late on commenting in this video, but I think I needed time to gather my thoughts on the situation (Naya's death). Glee was not a very good show, but I adored it. An ex girlfriend of mine, who loves the show, convinced me to watch it with her. Even after we broke up, we continued to watch it together and enjoy it. This is why I continued to watch it, but it was Naya's character, Santana that truly made an impact on my life. I've been gay as long as I can remember feeling attraction towards anyone, but out of fear, I did not come out to my family until I moved out and lived in residence at the school I was studying at. When I came out, my mother tried. She truly did, but she wasn't supportive. After I came out to her we didnt talk for months and it was hard. And then Nayas character on Glee went through something similar with her grandmother. I grew strength from that and grew such respect for Naya, I've adored and supported her ever since. So the news of her death is heartbreaking. I hope she knew what kind of impact she had on so many people's lives. RIP you beautiful woman.

Because of my concerns of sending him to in-person school, and because with (a LOT) of supervision he did very well with online learning last Spring, we have decided to do duel-enrollment at his local community college and take all of his classes online. Blessing/curse, I'm unemployed and will be able to supervise him.

That being said, I ALSO support the use of prisoners as labor, and I consider that to be the vastly-less evil of the two choices. After all, jails with internet and air conditioning don't really PUNISH the prisoners, do they?

  • I worry about schools reopening as I have two kids that are school aged - middle school and elementary. My area has had relatively low cases through all this which has been good but now we're suddenly seeing a large uptick (we had 9 cases total until 2 weeks ago and now we've had a day with 50 new cases). As of now the district plans to open with half students coming in the mornings and half in the afternoons but there's been a lot of nudgenudgewinkwink type things that encourage parents to opt into an online only program if there's ANYWAY you can do so.

  • Killing a person, when not done in self defense, is always wrong. The state should not be in charge of deciding who lives and who dies. Many people on death row are violent scumbags, but the very nature or our justice system makes it possible, even inevitable, that occasionally people will be sent to prison while innocent. While this is horrendous enough, it is that much worse to kill them because their innocence if proven at a later date by new evidence, new scientific investigative techniques , can no longer see them released. When the state becomes an executioner, we all become murderers for supporting it.

Some might not agree her career or whatever she posted but she loved her son dearly and it's sad seeing a young women who has recently become a mother is gone. All her hopes of growing with her son is robbed, her son is also robbed of having all these moments with his mother. People need to stop talking what needs to be shared or made public because this is a live and when someone dies close to you, it feels as if time has stopped and media is the last thing on their mind.

  • I’m going into high school this year and personally I think that a hybrid plan is the best idea, because of young kids (elementary) needing to have adult supervision. And for the kids who’s parents are going to a place of work and can’t get a ride home due to zoning. Also if we use a hybrid plan we can cater to those kids who have compromised family members they live with (my self including) or if they them self are compromised. I think given the options this will be the best plan of action. I do think that taking away school funding for doing online classes is ludicrous because schools still need that funding for online classes. The district I come from help feed kids who parents can’t afford food on the weekends. This is one of the things we use funding on and we could still use that funding. But to sum this up simply a hybrid plan is the best course of action. -sincerely someone from Austin, Tx

  • I hate to say that the whole stores being open thing is kind of valid, as someone who works retail rn at a major superstore despite our best efforts, social distancing seems to get ignored and even the small capacity we try to maintain finds everyone grouping up or getting super close to each other in busy sections of the store. So many people come in and out and get way too close for comfort to possibly prevent the spread of COVID if it were to come through the doors even with sanitation efforts. I cant be sure how reopening schools could even work but it doesn’t seem impossible given the circumstances and measures we’ve taken to allow huge stores to stay pretty much completely open.

  • None of these politicians demanding schools to reopen are considering the most important thing: kids are the ones going to school. They don’t go to Home Depot or the grocery store. They don’t wear face masks. You can put a mask on a child, but the second an adult looks away that mask is gone or moved around so much that it might as well be off. Some kids are still learning measurements, never mind knowing what 6ft is! Don’t give this responsibility to children! Act like adults, politicians.

Everyone is losing their minds for a virus that barely kills anyone. If your below 50 and don't have a secondary medical condition the odds of dying from this thing are minimal. Hell a majority of people barely have symptoms. What happened to "flatten the curve", well it's been flattened, good job guys, can we get back to living.

  • Look I understand why people support the death penalty. Its been banned for a long time here in Canada and the rational part of my mind totally agree with that, you can't allow the government to execute its own people. But on an emotional level, its pretty damn hard for me to feel bad about the mass murderers getting executed, especially the guy in this story who killed a frigging 8 years old. If I knew those people who were killed, if they were my friends or family, well screw the rational part of my brain, I would want that guy dead so I get it. But heres the important thing that I feel more people should talk about: people get wrongfully convicted all the frigging time! In 1992, 20 death row inmate in the USA were realeased due to new DNA evidence but DNA evidence isn't available in every cases. This list alone is why the death penalty should not exists. And thats just the ones who were exonerated, theres bound to be a few of them who were innocent but have never been able to prove it.

  • I just graduated high school in central Florida, but my mum is an elementary school teacher, all of the arguments are purely political messes. A lot of good people are wanting to make sure kids are safe, but so many more people want to start fear and threaten people. Some examples: - a man knowingly spread misinformation that the start date of schools got pushed back a week because teachers were protesting (something they aren't allowed to do), and then continued to call everyone who argued a stupid liberal or democrat. Even though the ex-union president called him out on it for being false. The extension was to train teachers on the procedures for if they fall sick and need to quarantine, this way they could easily, and quickly, the transition to online learning with their class. - the superintendent put out a poll for our 3 options (full in person, district online, or state online) but pulled the numbers a week early. At the time less than 50% of people who could vote did, and it ended up being roughly 40% in person, 35% district, and 25% state. Even though the two online options made up 60% of the votes the in-person percent was higher so they opened. The poll just closed Wednesday and barely 50% of people voted.

  • Thank you for your comments on grief. Having going through it myself recently, what you said is so accurate. Grief can put you in such a bad place and it is so easy to turn that into anger. I found that opening up, going through the emotions, and having a great support system (whether family or friends) really helped me. Also knowing there is no right or wrong way to grieve, really helped. Everyone goes through it differently.

  • As someone who already has multiple preexisting conditions im terrified for the fall semester, if I cant even go to the grocery store because of how at risk I am, I sure as hell won't go into a classroom full of people for 7-8 hours and 5 days per week

  • I’m a mathematics major in university. I have a mental disorder that require me to take medication that negatively affect my cognitive function and make me immunocompromised. School is already difficult for me when I was going in person, last semester made me realize that I can’t learn online it’s just not enough for me to actually learn what I’m suppose to know. I’m on a scholarship and I will lose it if I take the semester off. I can’t afford rent or food without it and finding and keeping a job feels impossible right now. School was my primary source of income so I don’t know what to do.

  • I am a teacher and I just want to remind everyone that the average age of teachers in the US in 42.5 years-old because 70% of teachers leave teaching within their first five years. With the average age that high, it's really not the kids we're worried about getting sick. It's the older teachers who will get it from the kids and then die. And then the kids have to live with the trauma of killing their teacher when it wasn't their fault. No one talks about how reopening affects the teachers. We're going to die.

  • as someone who just graduated high school. PEOPLE NEED TO BE BACK IN SCHOOL!!! learning online at home was NOT it. for anyone. it was poorly thought out. i barely got by and i’m really lucky to have teachers that understood and would do anything to help me. if you don’t want to go back, fine, but the thought of kids not being able to go back scares me. not everyone has a great home life, a nice laptop, and wifi like i do. and i was still in a depressive slump the entire time. this can’t happen again. children need to go back where they can socialize, especially the younger ones. everyone wants to talk about “their health” but their mental health matters too. mine suffered the entire time until i saw my friends on my birthday. i cant imagine what other people went through. i’m not even that excited for college because of the circumstances, wearing masks, interaction being limited, and hybrid learning, etc. as a stem major most of my classes will be in person. my mom is also a special ed teacher and watching her struggle to get in touch with her students and help them was very eye opening. it’s about more than the data, we need to go back. i got the swine flu TWICE in 2nd grade in a 2 month time period. this is bull

  • I think that the main issue with capital punishment is that we can never be absolutely sure that someone is guilty. If even one innocent person was executed, I think that that would be grounds enough to shut the entire capital punishment system down, and there have been people exonerated postmortem due to dna evidence and the like.

  • I’m going into my junior year of college and we are going back to on campus learning. There is an option for remote learning at least for those with disabilities. Granted, I go to school in PA, a state that has actually decreased its numbers of cases. I live in TX, so the school is having me come two weeks early to quarantine in a hotel. I am double majoring in Theatre and TV/Film (I know...) and as of right now my TV/Film courses are going to be online and my theatre classes are going to be in person. My roommate chose to do completely remote learning because she is immunocompromised. Every day we will have to fill out a questionnaire about how we’re feeling that day before we can go to class and if they think that college students are going to do that in the morning before a 9am, they’re out of their minds. Masks and social distancing are required and they will have testing available on campus. I have no clue how my two majors are supposed to function and properly teach us what we need to know while also social distancing.

  • Im in culinary school in Canada and my school is making it extremely difficult to get info on what school will look like in the fall. Many of us aren’t going back due to how unprofessional the school is being. It also kinda hurts knowing I’ll be missing out on all the college life experiences I could’ve had, school is just school now there’s no events or opportunity for making friends of anything else people look forward to in college. Sad to think that my college experience was only 6 months long and that I spent most of it stuck in 8 hour long culinary classes :(

  • Personally, my school has been very touch and go with summer activities. Administration OKed softball/baseball (until the baseball team was forced to quarantine for 2 weeks after someone tested positive) but has since enforced social distance for other activities like choir. As for our return to learn plan 🤦‍♀️ we are going back to school as normal at full capacity with masks being optional. Idk curious if any other high schoolers are as frustrated with the lack of precaution in their schools.

  • pentobarbital is the drug used in veterinary medicine to humanly euthanize animals. However, most use it after the animal has been sedated or anesthetized for humane reasons. This drug acts quick and stops the heart. Regardless of opinion on the death penalty - this drug is proven effective, very quick acting, and considered a humane way to die.

  • I’m 16, I’ve actually had online classes before covid and I failed all my classes. Spring semester was a shit show. I have fucking summer school now. I can’t learn much of anything at home! I’m not focused, I have no energy, and I’m terrified of what I’m going to do after I graduate because I’m an idiot and I can’t do anything!!! I think schools should be online (or hybrid) but I don’t think that that is a solution and I personally cannot handle even close to the amount of work I was doing in school before quarantine.

  • I think capital punishment is a permanent solution to a temporary problem, a solution we should only consider in the most extreme of circumstances. I am not going to pretend to live in the shoes of those affected by the lose of a loved one at the hands of another human, but I will say that everyone can change who they were and work to redeem their past behavior. I'm not sure we have the right to demand anything more from those who commit crimes that would warrant such a permanent resolution

  • The problem with the death penalty is that too many innocent people are convicted - most likely due to corruption.

  • It’s crazy to think that death penalty is still a thing in some parts of the world. This outdated form of practicing power and violence is still happening, yet we speak of freedom and equality for all humanity. But I guess some people doesn’t deserve a second chance in life. I’m just glad I live in a country where my actions or mistakes won’t sentence me to death. Where I’m able to change and learn from my past mistakes.

  • The main problem with phenobarbital is that states can't get a hold of it legally from the manufacturer. They don't want their drug associated with death. So the states are relying on compounding pharmacies to make the drug. There have been huge complications with this compounded drug. No one is quite sure why but it doesn't work the same as the drug from the original manufacturer. The other problem is that black and brown people are sentenced to death at higher rates than white people. Until it can be applied equally I don't think the death penalty can or should be used.

This is a huge opportunity to use your platform to make sure people are aware of the terrible things currently happening in China.
