Not the country I remember, not the country that raised me.
Mark Ciavarella Jr. was convicted of taking bribes from developers of juvenile detention centers.
For those who were watching the case, it’s finally been sentenced out…though I would not be surprised to see appeals and sentence reduction.
As I’ve said before, For Profit prisons create artificial demand for judicial punishment. This time it was in the form of a bribed official, but other forms of answering demand could be conceived. (such as broadening the number of offenses leading to prison time, or new laws that do so and co-authored by private prison owners)
Another point: Do you really think that this was the only judge successfully bribed in this manner?
Shit like this should make all of the world angrier than I’ve heard. With the USA’s common culture of “think of the children”? I fully expected some major parent group to be calling for a massive audit of proceedings, harassing public officials about incarceration rates since privatization, and so on. But so far? not a peep. What’s wrong with the USA here?
I feel like every week, that gif gets more and more accurate.
I’m not qualified to work with someone against their suicidal ideations, but it strikes me that the post I just saw with several hundred thousand notes is not the best way to do so.
Think about it: People in this terrible space are there for many different reasons. I can think of several reasons (but not all of them) I’ve heard over the years where this post would only make their pain greater, not lessened. Situations where one felt trapped in their situation of a home of abuse would not be helped by a dose of guilt over what they’re thinking of. While I can’t what what will work for lack of training, it strikes me that posts like that don’t serve the right message to everyone considering suicide.
I’ve had several people in the past attempt emotional guilt trips, and many of them felt like shit. Fortunately I’m mostly past being susceptible to them, but someone in the space where suicide is being thought about constantly is not likely to have the same grounding I do.
All of that is why I went with this, rather than reblogging that post. I can see the potential emotional trappings it could create, and want to avoid them.
And will they realize how twisted that question is after they do?
What would it take?
Wait, where are the notes?
OMG so true
guys look at where the notes should be.
What the fuck?
notes be gone.
…holy shit. the notes are gone.
WE BROKE THE NOTES COUNTER
I HIT “LIKE” AND I GOT AN ERROR MESSAGE
We broke another one guys
I’ve seen well more than 1 million notes on something, off the top of my head. How does this happen?
Angelina Jolie has appealed to the United Nations Security Council to try and stop sexual violence in war zones. The actress, who is also a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations, told members it was “their responsibility” to act. She said: “Rape is a tool of war. It is an act of aggression and a crime against humanity.”
"It is inflicted intentionally to destroy the woman, the family and the community. It ruins lives and fuels conflict.
The United Nations charter is clear. You, the Security Council, have primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security.”
After Angelina spoke, the UN Security Council voted unanimously to pass a resolution recognising that rape can exacerbate conflicts and delay peace. (Report by Sarah Johnston).
