Iceland made history this week, but not in a good way. For the first time since the nation became an independent republic, armed police shot and killed a man, startling a population accustomed to peace.
"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. “
"It’s said the Knight of Flowers went mad when he saw his king’s body.”
When I grow up I want to be Ming-Na Wen.
She’s the voice of Mulan, as if she wasn’t amazing enough.
Real life superhero.
Did you know she was in that Jean-Claude Van Damme Street Fighter movie? Or that she was the main female protagonist in that Final Fantasy movie (did you also know Alec Baldwin was in it too)? I can definitely still remember her from her E.R. days so I forget that she’s got pretty impressive nerd cred too.
I’m definitely looking forward to seeing more of May’s backstory.
