CHARLESTON, West Virginia (AP) — A man toting axes, a shovel and bleach when he was killed by an escort he met online had been stopped, interviewed or investigated by police in at least 20 states and is being looked...
When news emerged that a middle-aged white man in Lafayette, Louisiana opened fire at a showing of the Amy Schumer vehicle Trainwreck, I immediately had this sinking feeling that the movie choice wasn't a coincidence—that this was, like the Elliot Rodger and George Sodini killings, an act of rage at...
Wilbur Brown was arrested for a similar crime a month before Sara’s trial date in 2005. He confessed to both Reedy’s assault and the robbery, in addition to numerous other rapes. In response, after Sara was released, she sued the Cranberry Township Police Department. But the suit was dismissed in 2009, after Detective Evanson presented evidence claiming that Sara had pulled the power cord to the gas station’s security system an hour before the time she claimed to have been assaulted. She pulled the cord, he testified, in order to steal the $600, and then invented the rape story as a mere diversion.
Except, it turns out, the good detective had misread the security company’s timestamp data indicating when the cord was disconnected, and failed to consult the security company experts who actually knew how to read it. This fact came out when, in August of 2010, attorneys of the Women’s Law Project, a civil-rights nonprofit based in Pennsylvania, volunteered to help Sara challenge the dismissal of her lawsuit. The result was that, this past spring, Sara won a settlement of 1.5 million dollars.
Rob Duke's insight:
If you think the cops are bad, try the defense bar. The defense in many rape cases is "she's lying: we had sex, but it was consensual." This is an egregious case, no doubt, but most detectives are just vetting the facts because they know the defense is going to be remorseless in doing so....I guess the tactic is that it's better to find out early if the victim is lying.
School is out. What the hell are we going to do with these kids? Camps cost a fortune. Sports leagues are a pain in the ass. And who wants to stare at another listless, self-aware gorilla at the zoo? What a downer!

LOL: good ol' dad did #'s 4, 3, and 2. Which ones did your dad do (does your dad still do)?
For example, the visiting room scenes do not adequately portray the pain that permeates the room as mothers and their children are forced to sit side-by-side and not touch or comfort each other. The Bureau of Prisons used to hold a family day where children and their parents could spend hours...
15 Then Laban said to Jacob, ‘Because you are my kinsman, should you therefore serve me for nothing? Tell me, what shall your wages be?’ 16 Now Laban had two daughters; the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel. 17 Leah’s eyes ...
“Girls’ behavioral reaction to sexual abuse and trauma is criminalized, reinforcing the sexual abuse to prison pipeline…. The most common crimes for which girls are arrested — including running away, substance abuse, and truancy — are also the most common symptoms of abuse.” I posted a piece abou...
UKHTC has seen similar sites, selling male and female slaves, sometimes with indications that the victims are being trafficked for sex work, on more open sites. Indeed, the trading of people online is not new. Social networks and online back pages have been used to facilitate human trafficking for years.
Apart from the dramatic photos, there wasn't a great difference between the Black Death site and auction sites already known to the UKHTC
Please Mr. President, visit our girls behind bars--connect their lives to the larger discourse on criminal justice reform, and call attention to how we must do better by our girls too--because their lives matter.
Which information belongs—and which doesn’t—may surprise you.

--People: Who are they? Where were they educated? Experience?
--Opportunity: Is the market growing, contracting? How can you capture market share? Who are the customers? How does the customer make a choice about what product/service to buy? How much capital does it take to support a dollar of sales? Who are the competitors? How easy is it to disrupt competitors or have your business model disrupted by the competitors? Who else might be ready to exploit this opportunity? Can you form alliances with existing or potential competitors?
We conducted in-depth interviews with 60 female scientists and surveyed 557 female scientists, both with help from the Association for Women in Science. These studies provide an important picture of how gender bias plays out in everyday workplace interactions. My previous research has shown that there are four major patterns of bias women face at work. This new study emphasizes that women of color experience these to different degrees, and in different ways. Black women also face a fifth type of bias.
In August 2011, the veterinarian who'd supplied the anesthetic spray was sentenced to 12 years in prison, and the rapists were each sentenced to 25 years (five years shy of Bolivia's maximum penalty). Officially, there were 130 victims—at least one person from more than half of all Manitoba Colony households. But not all those raped were included in the legal case, and it's believed the true number of victims is much, much higher.
MEN and women do not think in the same ways. Few would disagree with that. And science has quantified some of those differences. Men, it is pretty well established, have better motor and spatial abilities than women, and more monomaniacal patterns of thought. Women have better memories, are more socially adept, and are better at dealing with several things at once. There is a lot of overlap, obviously. But on average these observations are true.
Building upon findings from a previous study which found that 63% of campus rapists were repeat offenders, a new study has found that "only" one-quarter of college men admit to rape more that once. However, one in ten college men admitted to rape at some point. The study has limitations but it's...
