"I don’t want this to be a story about politics. I don’t want this to be a story where someone uses it for their own political agenda. This is a case where he got the mental help that he needed. This is a case where we have gun laws on the books [in California]… But to me the most jarring part of this story is that he was posting anti-women, anti-men — really violent things online, and nobody even thought to look into it. I’m not saying, ‘Hey, you know what? He’s posting something negative online, let’s arrest him.’ I’m just saying that if he has this pattern where he’s saying violent things about specific people on forums, then — in the age of the NSA collecting all of this private information on us — why is it that there wasn’t a red flag? Why is it that the parents turned him into the authorities and they didn’t do a proper investigation?"

when they show a scene from two seasons ago in the “previously on” you know something fishy is about to happen
One time in like 5th grade I had this teacher and she gave us all bottles of shit like this and told us to squeeze it all out and of course we were like fuck yeah and did it and then she said, “Now, try and shove it all back in the container.” Of course we all tried, and then stared at her confused as shit. When we all obviously gave up, she said, “In the moment, you were so consumed with what you were doing that you didn’t realize the mess you were making. Then, after it was so quickly and easily poured out, you realize it is impossible to put it all back in. Remember this for the rest of your lives when it comes to the words that come out of your mouth” and we were like 10 so we were like yeah ok whatever lady, but somehow to this day I think of it constantly.
