holy fucking shit. i hadn’t heard what spikes were until i saw the post so i googled it and literally could feel all my hope for humanity sinking. i’m about to cry. what the fuck is this shit? that’s barbaric! where the hell are they supposed to go? you do realize that the cheapest solution would be to invest in shelters and job help programs and stop homelessness, not just put fucking spikes up and say “out of sight, out of mind” no fuck you those are humans treat them as humans.
I’m actually really amazed that this isn’t a Human Rights violation.
Luminol is used by forensic investigators to detect trace amounts of blood left at crime scenes as it reacts with iron found in hemoglobin. It is used by biologists in cellular assays for the detection of copper, iron, and cyanides, in addition to the detection of specific proteins by Western Blot.
For analysis of an area, luminol can be sprayed evenly across the area, and trace amounts of an activating oxidant will cause the luminol to emit a blue glow that can be seen in a darkened room. The glow lasts for about 30 seconds, but the effect can be documented by a long-exposure photograph. It is important that the spraying be evenly applied to avoid creating a slanted, or biased impression, such as blood traces appearing to be more concentrated in areas which received more spray. The intensity of the glow does not indicate the original amount present, but only the distribution of trace amounts of substances left in the area.
