Yesterday was not the first time that a swear-in has been attacked.

It is, however, the first time that it's been taken to the point that people have been hurt so gravely; physically, emotionally, or even psychologically. People were hurt. Not just natives, or imports, but both camps. I trusted that something will be done, and I trust that something will still be done, soon. But, as imports, we should be able to take a stand, and do something to catch the people who won't play along as they should.

I can't speak for any other city than De Chima, but I will do what I can for my city -- [ He calls it his, with that sort of fierce determination, pride, and possessiveness that could only be shown by not just an ambassador, but an executive level. He might not hold the position, but he still holds that sound in his voice. ] -- And what we can do is prevent future attacks. Any means necessary.

This is an open invitation. Anyone with the technological know how, please contact me. I'd like to talk about a contract -- something to be done as quickly, and as efficiently as possible. I'd also like to talk to someone from RISE, if I could.

[ A pause, then. ]

If there's one thing I can't stand, it's people like our attacker yesterday -- who thrive on chaos -- who can't act like a decent human being for one moment of the day, and who've gone out of their way to hurt not just one person, dozens. If not more. Where I come from -- and I'm sure it's the same here -- we call those terrorists. And I hope that like any terrorrist, he is found swiftly, and brought to trial properly. And whoever's out there who's going to hunt him down, police, or otherwise, please offer them your full support. Nobody can catch people like this alone -- I'd know, we dealt with this in New York, too -- but if we all collaborate, we'll come out of this okay.

And please, in the future, if you ever see something that gives you pause, anything, please report it. In my experiences, there's always evidence, if we look. I know I'm going to commit to never turning a blind-eye, when something seems off. I'd like to hope everyone else will too.

[Qubit just wants to add a little more detail, don't mind him.]

Chemical weapons attack. About the most powerful hallucinogen I've ever seen. People went berserk, lost control of their powers, etc. I don't have the exact numbers, but there were multiple fatalities.

[ No, detail is good.

Especially this detail. This is horrific. A hallucinogen. They hadn't just hurt people. They'd made them hurt others, with a drug.


was it in the food ? how could they do that

how did they get away with it ?

[personal profile] superposition 2015-08-17 03:35 am (UTC)(link)
No, not the food. It was distributed as a gas toward the end of the event. I don't know how they got an assault on that scale in place without anyone noticing. Or maybe someone did notice, and looked the other way.

or helped them do it .

[ Is that really so unlikely? Why are so many people here so trusting of their lords and masters? Compliance is a mistake. It’s only going to make things worse. ]

were you hurt ?
superposition: (And I'm feeling very sick and ill today)

[personal profile] superposition 2015-08-18 03:03 am (UTC)(link)
[Yeah, you'll have to excuse Qubit, he's an idealist who believes in the essential goodness of humanity :') He likes to give benefit of the doubt when he can.]

Not as bad as some.

[Physically, at least.]
kinesia: (p r e p a r e d)

[personal profile] kinesia 2015-08-18 08:06 pm (UTC)(link)
but bad enough .

[ So many people. How many more have to get hurt before people stop singing the Government's song? ]
superposition: (I'm so sick and tired)

[personal profile] superposition 2015-08-18 08:08 pm (UTC)(link)
Trust me, I've had much worse. I appreciate your concern, but I'll be fine. [Eventually. Maybe.]
kinesia: (e x a n i m a t e)

[personal profile] kinesia 2015-08-22 02:08 am (UTC)(link)
like everyone else will be fine

[ This is both stupid and needless. ]

the swear ins make all of us a target
superposition: ((talk to me))

[personal profile] superposition 2015-08-23 04:28 am (UTC)(link)
True. It's a large gathering of imPorts, scheduled in advance, poorly defended. But that last issue, at least, is fixable. It's just a matter of stepping up and fixing it.
kinesia: (w h e e l i n g)

[personal profile] kinesia 2015-08-23 01:30 pm (UTC)(link)
you cant fix it

[ Not completely. Not assuredly. And not to Grey's satisfaction, not when his best friend has just been poisoned and traumatised. ]

but we can all stop going .

[Haha...ha... rule #1, don't tell Qubit he can't do thing :'D]

You're welcome to stage a boycott, by all means, but don't expect to see 100% participation. That's just the nature of the beast. There will still be those who choose to attend, for whatever reason, and I don't intend to leave those people unprotected. Even if they're still a target, we can ensure they're not an easy one.

[personal profile] kinesia 2015-08-24 01:29 am (UTC)(link)
[ Not good enough, Grey thinks. ]

you are helping with this ?

you are helping to make them safe ?
kinesia: (u n s u r e)

[personal profile] kinesia 2015-08-24 01:42 am (UTC)(link)
i hope it works .

... So do I, Grey. So do I.
