Dear Chief Blair: Here’s why coming forward may only make things worse | Toronto Star

Dear Chief Blair: Here’s why coming forward may only make things worse | Toronto Star | Ethics? Rules? Cheating? | Scoop.it

"Responding to a rising tide of sexual assault allegations involving ex-CBC host Jian Ghomeshi, Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair urged victims of any such crimes to come forward — promising to respect their rights, connect them to services, and investigate their complaints “with compassion and professionalism.”

Why then do so few women report sexual assault?

A letter addressed to Blair and sent to Star columnist Rosie DiManno as a Letter to the Editor reveals the chilling experience of someone who did what Blair suggests and learned that taking an abuser to court may only compound the pain and humiliation of the original attack.

The text of the letter appears below, with its author’s name withheld to protect her privacy."

Now the U.S. government public schools are doing the same to the African American females of today! We can change the building but we can't change those the government governed public schools just by asking , those I have encountered with and or their attorneys want respond and by the laws of NC even if they commit certain crimes such as attendance law violations there is no laws on the book which states they are accountable but the parent(s) , guardian(s) and even student(s) are accountable if the student misses 10 or more days of school which is not excused per school principal. But the North Carolina State School Board Members, NC State Superintendent , June Atkinson, Wilson County School Board Members, Wilson,NC and Wilson County Schools attorney Rachel Hitch among numerous others that have denied African American special needs qualified school age  Females their right to enroll and attend NC Public Schools per WCS attorney Rachel Hitch 2/18/13 dated letter of reprisal sent to their parent whom they reside with by said attorney during NC Office of Administrative Hearing Special Education Contested Case 13-EDC-07545 filed on 1 of the African American females mentioned above behalf.

The high-stakes world of rare-plant theft

The high-stakes world of rare-plant theft | Ethics? Rules? Cheating? | Scoop.it
The theft of endangered and rare flowers has led botanical gardens to go to extreme measures to protect their plants, locking them down with cables and installing CCTV. But is this enough to preserve such species?

The gently swaying trees and luscious foliage of the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens in Hampshire hardly look like a crime hotspot. Young families amble with pushchairs and pensioners take tea and cake.

But the staff must remain vigilant.

Hidden camera captures street harassment

A video showing a young woman being pestered by catcallers has gone viral, re-igniting the debate about street harassment.

A woman walks along the streets of New York City, minding her own business. Men call out at her: "What's up beautiful?", "Nice!", "Hey baby!". When she ignores them, she is admonished ("Smile!", "You should say thank you more"). At one point a man walks alongside her in silence for over five minutes, despite her obvious discomfort. In total she encounters over 100 comments in 10 hours - not including many more non-verbal signals like winks and whistles.

"Scattered across the country are key territories to control - Georgia, Colorado, Iowa, Oregon. Instead of armies, players move stacks of money from state to state.


The objective is to help chosen political candidates tally wins when voters head to the polls on election day next Tuesday.

The prize is power - control of Congress and the ability to shape the agenda in Washington for years to come."
