THEY HAVE THE ACE ATTORNEY OFFICIAL MANGA IN MY LAW LIBRARY I AM CRYING.



Your honor, something is amiss here!
As you are probably aware, library materials are labeled with barcodes as well as a number to determine their location on the shelf, as per the Dewey Decimal System. The books just to the left of the manga are labeled, as are the DVDs just in view on the lower shelf. Look even further behind these shelves and you’ll see that even those books are labeled! 
Ladies and gentlemen of the courtroom, I invite you to take a closer look at the volumes that are, allegedly, part of this law library! Something is missing from the spines, isn’t there?

Where are the bar codes?!
This is a blatant contradiction! The OP is lying— these volumes cannot, therefore, be a part of this library at all! I propose that they simply brought these materials in for the sake of the joke!! 


Only focusing on one aspect and not the whole of the issue, are we, Mr. Wright? Typical.

Your honor, if you bring your attention to the books just left of the manga, you’ll notice there’s a book (the second to the left) that also does not have a bar code.

If you examine the picture even closer—particularly the DVDs below—you’ll see that they bear bar codes, but not on the spines. No, they have them on the back and/or front of the DVDs. Of course, this method of labeling and organizing isn’t limited to products of the film industry alone.

Therefore, I’d like to propose that it is entirely possible that the manga books do, in fact, belong to the library!


Wh-WHAAAAT?! You’re kidding!! 
(Shoot, he’s got me there… Better think of something fast! Something about the books that sets them apart from—
…! I’ve got it!)
While that may be true, you’ve also overlooked one critical error: the titles of the books! Whether or not your hypothesis regarding the labeling system is correct, these titles aren’t alphabetized correctly! What kind of self-respecting librarian would misplace such vital books? 
Well, Edgeworth?



While it pains me to have to point out something so obvious, I suppose I’ll make an exception for you, Wright.
Clearly, one look at the titles of the books next to the manga is a tell-all of this certain library’s less-than-stellar organization skills. None of the books are in alphabetical order, I’m afraid.

They could very well be alphabetized by author and not title, but it’s a little difficult to be able to decipher that from this single picture, wouldn’t you say?
Furthermore, the manga books themselves are in numerical order, suggesting some kind of system is in place, albeit not a very good one, if the alphabetizing is off.

At the end of the day, it seems like neither of us can draw a clear conclusion from this evidence alone. Your honor, I strongly suggest a recess in which we could investigate the library itself further.

I see the issue here very clearly.
Due to the uncertain nature of this case, we’ll have to postpone this decision until more decisive evidence can be obtained. The court will now take a 15-minute recess.

(W-wait, but I’m not—)


WAIT!!!

I’ve got some decisive evidence for you, pal!

We investigated further into the photo. Zooming in, you can see a label on the DVD case to the bottom left.

Photo Close-up added to the court record!


As you can see, pal, you can vaguely see the words “Of Toledo Law Library” on the label!

And, considering possibilities of the rest of that label, “University of Toledo" was the first to come to my mind!
A quick search on the University of Toledo’s Online Law Library Database revealed that there ARE the comics pictured in it!
Miles Edgeworth Ace Attorney Investigations volumes 1-4 and Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney volumes 1-5!

And there’s more! 
The section these comics are filed under is the “Law in Popular Culture" Section, which matches up with the titles on the rest of the books on that shelf: "Lowering the Bar: Lawyer Jokes & Legal Culture”, “Prime Time Law”, “Lawyers in Your Living Room!" and "Lex Populi”!
Not only is it in the right section, it’s also a documented part of the Law Library’s database!
How’s that for decisive evidence?

This explains why liberals haven’t wiped the floor with conservatives in the political arena, and rendered the GOP as obsolete as the whigs. Simply put, we’re usually too smart to get carried away with righteous indignation. And that’s the kind of stuff that gets attention and ratings.

Apparently, liberals only indulge in righteous indignation on tumblr.

"Mr. Wright.  I’m certain I’ll be of use!"
Here’s our first look at Ryuunosuke’s assistant, Mikotoba Susato! As we mentioned in the last post, she’s a judicial assistant; according to Takumi, she also loves foreign mystery novels and is a forward-thinking dreamer.

WHAT A CUTIE I LOVE HER ALREADY

I’m in love…! Usually I think the assistants range from tolerable to annoying, but, like, she’s so cute and composed looking! *A*

I like all the assistants but by the time Athena rolled around, I was having a bit of an overdose on “spunky girl assistants” after Maya, Ema, Trucy and Kay (which is one of the reasons I liked the DLC case, having Pearl is a nice change of pace).

So to have a calm, collected partner is cool.

So I just got back last night from a brony convention in San Francisco. I was working a booth for a vendor friend, and let me tell you what happened:

We met a little girl who was there with her family. She…

So I have to ask, who’s more prejudiced: male MLP fans or females? Males. You know why? Because we hate male MLB fans, too! That’s right! Everything female MLP fans don’t like about male MLP fans, male MLP fans *REALLY don’t like about male MLP fans! There’s some shit going on with male MLP fans! There’s a civil war going on with male MLP fans, and there’s two sides: there’s male MLP fans, and there’s Bronies. The Bronies have got ta’ go! Can’t do SHIT without some ignorant ass Bronies fuckin’ it up!

I love MLP fans, but I hate Bronies!

—-

Apologies to Chris Rock, but… the point had to be made.

All that being said, it is a brony convention. Hosted and paid for by bronies, so it would be expected that it is not a “space carved out for children” that is being “flooded” by grown ass man.

It’s a space carved out for grown ass men to buy creepy things that most would find in an unmarked packages from Jlist.

I would never take a child to an anime convention, brony convention or a comic convention in good faith because of all the creeps and misogynists that lurk there.

Which is a damn shame because I do have a couple of nephews who would love some Hulk memorabilia.

(On a side note, you were “prepared to physically attack the human trashheap who tries to fuck with her. We’re all dressed up in wings and ears and we’re 100000% prepared to rip them off and launch across that table to defend this kid.” But when the damn pedophile comes around you do absolutely nothing. He should have been reported to Con security or the police.)

The original post is, given the milieu, highly questionable, and so we don’t even need to enter into questions about conventions, fandom, safe spaces, femculture, dudebros, or the like.

This is Tumblr. Far too often is it proven that a horrendous accusation turned out to be entirely made up. This time, it’s about what was certainly criminal activity. Such things are circulated quite often, probably for the purposes of garnering notes.

And the original post is long on accusations, but short on facts. It goes about its accusations in such a way that sets off my BS detector. It does not mention the name of the con or the name of the booth. If the the link following the main post is to believed, it was the booth of the owners of the con, but that doesn’t jive with this post at all - it specifically says “vendor.” Other facts could clear this up, but as it stands they are in contradiction.

The original post has the glaring weakness in that it was apparently never reported, either to the security at the con, or to San Francisco police. The very existence of Amber Alerts is enough of an argument that law enforcement tends to take this very seriously. And, the fact that the original poster doesn’t seem to have taken any effort into actually reporting the incident suggests that the poster is more interested in outrage than in doing something substantive for a minor.

Other questions arise from the post as well. Where were the parents? Why did they, apparently, leave the child alone for periods of time? Were the parents informed? Are the parents considering taking action?

All of this would raise questions by themselves. But because this is Tumblr, the presumption must be against the poster, particularly considering that the original post has now been deleted. Unless further facts are revealed, we have to disbelieve this before we can even reach the point of moral outrage for or against fandoms.

A couple of points:

Sacanime is indeed a vendor. The con is assumed to be Babscon as it is the only brony convention in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Secondly, before the original post was deleted, the OP back-pedalled and stated that she did INDEED alert security but that they ignored her report.

I find this HIGHLY questionable as the security for the convention was not handled by con staff  but rather by FLARE, a local San Fran convention security group that handles several conventions in the area.

I’m also highly sceptical of such claims because it has been proven false before. Tumblr accused convention goers of shouting sexual remarks at the underage VAs of the Cutie Mark Crusaders. It eventually led to one of the VAs herself  categorically denying any such abuse happened.

This is part of the reason I don’t go to any conventions at all, Brony or otherwise.

It seems Cons have transformed into a place for basement dwelling neckbeards to feel secure in their disgusting habits.
