Meet the Reykjavík Metropolitan Police, serving the capital of Iceland. By the looks of their incredible Instagram account, a normal day includes holding kittens, eating candy and wearing false mustaches.
For the record the Icelandic police are probably the best police force in the world, There has only been one instance where an officer shot and killed a civilian in the entire history of the country (which is nearly a hundred years) and everyone was completely devastated by it, the police especially — because, as made clear in their statements after the incident, they understand their function is to protect the people. Not to mention that their general police go unarmed except for special squads.
Let’s run through some more facts while we’re on the subject: Compared to 31,000+ shooting deaths in the US in 2009, Iceland had… 4, because they have very rigorous screening processes for gun permits. There is very little economic disparity between upper, middle and lower classes, and social welfare programs take care of their people. Drug use affects less than 1% of the population between 15 and 65 years old, and 90% of drug-related court cases are settled with a fine rather than jail time. Violent crime is virtually non-existent. [x]
Iceland is like if you took the entire idea of chill and personified it as an country, and this exemplifies that.

First day at school, Gaza, Palestine.
this is the most important thing right now.
As a photographer I’ve noticed that we get inundated with images on a daily basis, this in turn devalues photographs. i look at this and hope that you all can take a quick second to actually realize that those children are real children. and that hole in a wall is a real hole caused by an explosive device, this is peoples every day lives… in America we live a super comfy life. we dont get shot at every day. you’ll probably go your entire life with out getting shot at, lets be honest… so when you start complaining about how bad your life is, just realize what other people in the world deal with on an every day basis…
Why isn’t anyone talking about this?
Watch non black cosplayers and lovers of cosplay stay silent on this.
