Since Last We Spoke, El Paso and Dayton Edition

I’m up in Newport, RI doing some work for the Navy this week, and it’s frankly a welcome respite from DC right now. In the wake of the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, I have to tell you–I’m tapped out. I’ve donated money to gun control efforts, and I’ve tried to stay offline as much as I can. I just don’t have the bandwidth to digest all the media right now, and if you don’t either, that’s okay. To all the FHO readers in both of those cities, and we have many, please know my thoughts are with you as so many of you were undoubtedly working in area hospitals this weekend. My prayers that you and your loved ones are safe and that maybe–maybe–this is the thing that moves this country to finally take action on guns. Because in this climate of white supremacy and toxic masculinity, this is not a problem that is just going to fix itself.

I’ve got nothing else to offer for today. I’ll be back tomorrow with regular posts. Take care of yourselves, people.


Have you checked out the FHO store lately? You can find the newest research brief, Applying The Strangulation Research To Expert Testimony In Cases With Adult Victims. Or purchase the complete set of three (Strangulation, Aging Bruises, and Consensual Sex Injury) for a special price.
