It's fascinating how the concept of culpability is deeply intertwined with our understanding of right and wrong. When we label someone as "culpable," we're essentially assigning them responsibility for their actions, implying that they knew the consequences of their choices. https://globalcatalog.com/printingmart.gb However, things can get quite complex when we consider factors like intention, circumstances, and personal history. Is someone truly culpable if they were raised in an environment that limited their access to information or skewed their moral compass? Can we assign the same level of culpability to someone suffering from a mental illness that impairs their decision-making? https://www.owler.com/company/customisesticker

it seems like a pattern with gift cards. I used to see scammers like that at GameStop that would come in with $1500 and buy a bunch of like $100 Visa cards. also they would go to the gas station and buy whatever gift card is available too so they can stack the money up and then transfer it all to like a debit card, venmo, cash app, etc. usually it was a debit card that they had the money on but didn't want to make a big transaction and broke it up into smaller transactions so they could filter it out.

This is such a weird way to say you were thinking about getting into law enforcement. It sounds like he’s saying he saw a lot of crime and decided to fix it by becoming Batman.

This case is so obvious it's ridiculous. Clearly her husband killed her. They were both likely drug users (not at all shaming them or judging them, it's just relevant) and he probably owed someone a debt or was going to rat on someone. Sean is just a standard wife-beating wannabe cop pos. And he got his pig friends to cover up the fact that he abused and murdered his wife. It's literally that simple. One of the cops that backed up his "alibi" even killed his own wife and staged it. Like, are you kidding me? Disgusting.
