Iceland grieves after police kill a man for the first time in its history

"The nation does not want its police force to carry weapons because it’s dangerous, it’s threatening," Arnorsdottir says. "It’s a part of the culture. Guns are used to go hunting as a sport, but you never see a gun."

In fact, Iceland isn’t anti-gun. In terms of per-capita gun ownership, Iceland ranks 15th in the world. Still, this incident was so rare that neighbors of the man shot were comparing the shooting to a scene from an American film. 

The Icelandic police department said officers involved will go through grief counseling. And the police department has already apologized to the family of the man who died — though not necessarily because they did anything wrong.

"I think it’s respectful," Arnorsdottir says, “because no one wants to take another person’s life. “

I feel like I don’t even live on the same planet as some people because of the stuff I’ve gotten “used to seeing” in the news here in the US compared to other places in the world…

Iceland; I salute you.

but by buying the tickets they are in fact supporting the preacher. he basically got all their money without having to give his sermon.

The tickets were free, you just had to reserve them. Then they reserved all of them.So it was just a huge “fuck you” to that guy. Super rad!

ah, thank you! i didn’t know it was free

omg
that’s amazing
go iceland u rad people

Also this sort of thing makes it so the person performing the event doesn’t make the real money in terms of merch and extras.
So even if you buy the tickets the profit line is super fucked and that person probably won’t be able to book another large venue.

This is Grýla, an Icelandic monster who ate bad children before Christmas.

You better not shout,

You better not cry,

You better not pout,

Or an Icelandic monster will fucking eat you.

Omg

The mom doesn’t even look panicked she’s just “Sigh. Goddamn it Jimmy I fucking told you.”
