"Love languages" is a useful concept even though people sometimes get really reductive about it and take it too seriously.

"Impactful"

Had a marketing idiot client say that with a breathtaking lack of irony the other day. (In a call.)

Sorry man. I was a machinist once, not a sheet metal mechanic. I can't help you with your tin ear.

I'm pretty sure he's not actually pointing that thing at the guy foreground. That looks like forced perspective.

Possibly, but with so many videos of cops clearly firing aimed shots at peaceful protesters, not just with rubber/tagger bullets or pepper rounds but with tear gas canisters, the cops get no benefit of the doubt.

ETA including clearly deliberate head shots.

I think finding truth is more important than confirming our own biases, however correct those biases may be. Especially when maintaining credibility is so hard to do these days. Manipulating things, no matter how well intentioned, will likely just cause a blowback when people find out that they were deceived.

I actually do assume that it's not pointed at his face, but not because I don't believe they would, but because I think he's looking where he's aiming and he's not looking at the guy's forehead. As with the Elian Gonzales photo back in the day, I don't think this is manipulated, but that it could be misinterpreted.

However, again, cops have been so so sooooooo clearly pulling exactly this kind of shit, but it's on grainy cell phone video and doesn't look as good.

You're completely right, though.

This has been a montage of police accuse imagery.
