As N.P.R. reported in May, services that “were once free, including those that are constitutionally required,” are now frequently billed to offenders: the cost of a public defender, room and board when jailed, probation and parole supervision, electronic monitoring devices, arrest warrants, drug and alcohol testing, and D.N.A. sampling. This can... - http://silas216.tumblr.com/post...
This makes me honestly so angry. People should not have to go into debt to guarantee a jury trial. That's ridiculous. They shouldn't have to pay for a public defender. - Jennifer Dittrich

Americans are afraid to talk about the NSA on social media, according to a new survey published by the Pew Research Center. Since Edward Snowden leaked thousands of documents detailing the agency’s massive surveillance program on U.S. citizens’ digital and wireless communications, Americans say they are far more willing to criticize the NSA in face-to-face discussions compared to online.

Do you know what I think of when someone asks for solidarity? I think of cops. Nobody shows more solidarity than cops. You could have a cop on video beating the crap out of someone, with a dozen of his fellow cops standing there watching, and not a one will cross that blue line to do what is right . . . Solidarity is about group cohesion, which... - http://silas216.tumblr.com/post...

Full-time American workers labor the equivalent of nearly an additional day each week, averaging 47 hours instead of the standard 40, according to Gallup poll results released Friday.
 
Just 42% of full-time employees work 40 hours a week, the traditional total based on five 9 a.m.-to-5 p.m. workdays, Gallup said of findings it released ahead of the Labor Day weekend.
 
Nearly the same percentage — 39% — say they work at least 50 hours a week. And almost one in five Americans, or 18%, said their workweek stretched 60 hours or more.
 
"The 40-hour workweek is widely regarded as the standard for full-time employment, and many federal employment laws — including the Affordable Care Act, or ‘Obamacare’ — use this threshold to define what a full-time employee is," Gallup said.
 
"However, barely four in 10 full-time workers in the U.S. indicate they work precisely this much," Gallup said.
 
Salaried employees work an average of 49 hours a week, compared with 44 hours for people paid by the hour. A quarter of salaried workers said they spend 60 or more hours a week on the job.
 
The overall 47-hour average workweek has held roughly steady for 14 years, Gallup said.
 
But the percentage of workers with full-time employment now is 43%, down from about 50% before the Great Recession.
 
Part-timers are about 9% of the adult population, also consistent with poll results over the past 14 years, Gallup said.
 
The results are based on surveys of 1,271 adults in Gallup’s 2013 and 2014 Work and Education Survey.

The real reason the Second Amendment was ratified, and why it says “State” instead of “Country” (the Framers knew the difference - see the 10th Amendment), was to preserve the slave patrol militias in the southern states, which was necessary to get Virginia’s vote.

Georgian First Grader Beaten and Sexually Assaulted by Male Classmates…School Says Boys Just “Rough Housing”
 
Valdosta - Three first grade boys kept a female classmate outside after recess by hiding in the woods, pushing her face first into the ground. The victim, whose name is being withheld, has suffered scarring to the right side of her face from broken tree branches and rocks that she was allegedly assaulted with both physically and sexually.
 
The victim was able to escape the male classmates after fifteen minutes of torture, running into a fifth grade classroom and alerting a teacher of what had happened. The principle of the elementary school said he had a “man to man” talk with the boys and their parents, giving them two days of suspension. He neglected calling the local authorities claiming “it did not seem like a police matter, just simple rough housing gone a little too far”.
 
The parents of the victim are looking to press charges on the boys for sexual and physical assault, as well as a possible law suit against the school district. District superintendent was not available for comment. 
  
This is called rape culture you guys. The girl was 7 years old and they called it “rough housing” between boys.
  
Please boost this post! People NEED to hear about this.
  
This is a state where a little black girl was arrested for throwing a tantrum. I weep for both of these little girls.
  
Not real, someone else pointed this out early in my timeline. Story is completely made up and pic is girl that got attacked by a kangaroo

I'd question "beloved," but I'm glad to see it from a lot of men prominent in various fandoms over the last couple of weeks. I wish it weren't prompted by the massive torrent of abuse being thrown around, but sometimes that's what it takes. - Jennifer Dittrich
