12-year-old tased inside Victoria’s Secret | ksdk.com

South St. Louis County (KSDK) – A police officer tased a 12-year-old girl inside a Victoria’s Secret Wednesday afternoon at South County Center.

Police say the officer came into the Victoria’s Secret looking for the teenager’s mom, who had warrants for her arrest. But it was the teen who got tased.

“This one goes in my chest. It was stuck in there so she had to keep on pulling trying to pull it out,” said Dejamon Baker, as she pointed to a small wound on her chest.

Baker has a matching wound on her stomach.

“I had fell on the floor and I couldn’t control myself I just kept on shaking and stuff,” said the girl.

Baker, her mother Charlene Bratton, and some other relatives were in the Victoria’s Secret.

Bratton had just tried on some shorts and was about to buy them when she says a St. Louis County officer came looking for her. Bratton had warrants, she says, for numerous unresolved traffic tickets.

“He said, put your hands behind your back. I said for what. Next thing you know he tackled me down on the ground,” said Bratton.

Baker said, “I was just crying. I guess he got mad because I was crying or something, then he just took it out and just tased me.”

FIGHT THE REAL ENEMY: The Time Times Monday Music Moment

FIGHT THE REAL ENEMY

IT’S US AGAINST THEM.

NO POLITICIAN RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT CARES ABOUT YOU…

OR ME…

OR SUFFERING CHILDREN.

POLITICAL CHOICE IS AN ILLUSION.

They successfully conquer and divide each time someone believes one of their lies or falls for one of their distractions.

FREEDOM FOR PRESIDENT! 

CLEAN AND STERILIZE THE WHITE HOUSE AND CAPITOL HILL!

This is not my video.  It was posted by Moksha75ar3 on YouTube.

Before anyone gets their chastity belts in a twist, Sinead was singing this haunting rendition of “War” in protest of the known rampant child abuse in the Catholic church occurring around the world.  She sacrificed her career to do what thousands of religious leaders would not; she spoke the truth, stood up for the weak, and called out the real evil, the real enemy, even if it did wear a pretty robe: Not just the pathetically reprehensible abusers, but the people who do nothing to stop  abusers, tyrants, and sadists.

World Economic Forum on the Middle East, North Africa and Eurasia 2012

I just found this but haven’t had a chance to look over it.  It looks like a fun site to cruise.  Jump in for yourself and see what you can find.  Let me know if you find something interesting.

World Economic Forum on the Middle East, North Africa and Eurasia 2012

Bridging Regions in Transformation
Istanbul, Turkey 4-6 June 2012

Blue Mosque and Bosphorus

The pace and complexity of global change in recent years have been unprecedented, with Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia emerging as a key mega-region of the future.

The World Economic Forum on Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia will therefore convene over 1,000 leaders in Istanbul, Turkey, to catalyse new partnerships for growth and human development.

  • In light of the global economic contraction, how can governments and business leaders design and deliver new models to drive innovation and economic agility across this mega-region?
  • How can the region strengthen energy cooperation and deliver the high-value trade and investment in science and research that are critical to knowledge economies?
  • How can the social dynamism unlocked by developments in the Middle East and North Africa be transformed into a decade of entrepreneurial opportunity, human security and good governance?

Diane Tran, Honor Student At Texas High School, Jailed For Missing School

28 May

Read about the honor student working two jobs to support herself and her siblings who was jailed for missing too many days of school here at the Huffington Post. (Excerpt below)

Diane Tran, a 17-year-old honor student in Texas, was forced to spend the night in jail last week after missing too many classes, KHOU-11’s Sherry Williams reports.

The Willis High School junior, who helps support two siblings, has both a full time and part-time job. She said that she’s often too tired to go to school.

“She goes from job to job from school,” Devin Hill, one of Tran’s classmates, told KHOU-11. “She stays up until 7:00 in the morning doing her homework.”

In an interview with KHOU-11, Tran said she takes AP Spanish, college level algebra and dual credit English and history courses. Her parents divorced and no longer live near her, so she lives with the family that owns the wedding venue where she works on weekends.

According to Texas law, if a student has ten or more unexcused absences within a six-month period, the school district may refer the student to a juvenile court. “In such cases, resolution of the issue is entirely in the hands of the court,” reads a statement on the website of the Willis Independent School District.

Anytime the law gets involved with petty school affairs, it really lights me up.  This is beyond ridiculous.  Let’s just add her to Our Horrible Children list.

There is something very, very wrong with this “justice system.”  America makes up less than 5% of the world population, but holds almost 25% of the world’s inmates, with the largest prison population in the world.  People are arrested and strip-searched for non-criminal offenses when no suspicion of any wrongdoing exists.  Why would you take someone in and have them strip-searched and jailed for not having a dog on a leash, or not having a bell on a bike?  There is no denying we have become a Big Brother, heavy-handed police state, growing more rigid and heartless each week.  Drones, strip searches, arresting children, babies on no-fly lists, tasering pregnant women and children, cops killing people with little to no repercussions, sexual assault by cops and prison guards, all around rampant police brutality and abuse of power.  This has got to stop.  NOW.

  GET LOUD.

Teacher Yells at Student for Obama Question, Says He Can Be Arrested For Disrespecting President

23 May

It’s amazing that people wonder why our children have such terrible test scores.  The “disrespectful” student in the video should have been teaching the class.

The student had the nerve to ask his teacher, “Didn’t Obama bully someone?”   The teacher exploded, shrieking and stumbling over her words with grammar so poor, it made me wonder how she ever made it past 8th grade.  To know that people like this woman are “qualified” to teach and mold our children is horrifying. But to be completely honest, I did laugh, partially from disbelief and discomfort, and partially due to the utter stupidity and the fact that it was caught on tape.

FDA Admits to Killing 100,000 People A Year, Why Are We Okay With This?

20 May

Click here to read it right from the FDA website

fda.gov
“Why Learn about Adverse Drug Reactions (ADR)?”

Why Learn about Adverse Drug Reactions (ADR)?  (link from FDA.gov)

Imagine there is a huge food producer that makes a multitude of  products consumed by millions of Americans each year.  Now imagine that the food producer knows their products kill 100,000 people and cause over 2 million serious adverse health effects every year, yet they do not stop producing or selling them.  Would the American people allow those products to stay on the market?  Would we hold the food producer accountable and insist on charges of involuntary manslaughter if the statistics are known facts found on the FDA website? (see below)

  • Over 2 MILLION serious Adverse Drugs Reaction (ADRs) yearly
  • 100,000 DEATHS yearly
  • ADRs 4th leading cause of death ahead of pulmonary disease, diabetes, AIDS, pneumonia, accidents and automobile deaths
  • Ambulatory patients ADR rate—unknown
  • Nursing home patients ADR rate— 350,000 yearly

TSA: Baby On No-Fly List, ‘Blasted’ For Spending in Congressional Report, Assaulted Geraldo

13 May

The TSA has taken the saying “any publicity is good publicity” a little too far, or they’re just an embarrassing,  incompetent waste that violates innocent Americans everyday.

Family of “No-Fly list” Toddler Wants Apology

It is exactly what it sounds like.   An 18 month year old girl and her family were removed from the airplane because the baby was shockingly on the list by mistake (note sarcasm) .  Getting a TSA apology is extremely rare, and even then, they are usually backhanded, and when the controversy forces them to change procedure, they still don’t acknowledge they are “modifying” their abuse because they went too far.  They admit they are inefficient instead, which is supported by the latest congressional report covered in this post.   However, if you want to carry gun parts through security, the parts will be confiscated, but you won’t be arrested and you’ll be allowed to fly.  FUN FACT:  I just accidentally entered “inneffected” into the search engine when making a copy and paste error.  The FIRST item listed was RT News: TSA Security: Inneffective and violating.  That is so sad.

Geraldo Details TSA ‘Rape’ Pat Down: ‘My Junk Was Junked’

I find it odd when they start laughing.  Are they just so ridiculously pious that the word “junk” and the very real daily molestation of Americans makes them giggle like school girls, or do they not take it seriously?  “You gotta make sure.”    My gay cousin Bubba, a former prison guard AND inmate, would be more than happy to “make sure” Mr. FauxNews man isn’t a terrorist.

TSA blasted over security equipment spending (article)

This is the second massive spanking given to the TSA by congress in six months, this time citing intentional lying and delay of congressional oversight.  The other report published in November of 2011 gave them an all around failing grade.   I’m disappointed to see once again they didn’t mention that the AIT visual strip search machines are completely worthless, have cost one BILLION dollars, and ex-TSA head Michael Chertoff and other government officials profited from the sales, but the report was still not complimentary at all.

Congressional Report excerpts

Airport Insecurity: TSA’s Failure to Cost-Effectively Procure, Deploy and Warehouse its Screening Technologies

“The report makes recommendations emphasizing TSA’s need to more effectively develop its deployment strategy prior to the procurement of screening technologies.”

“Key Findings-
TSA Procurement, Deployment, and Storage of Security Technology and Equipment at its Transportation Logistics Center”

“TSA is wasting hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars by inefficiently deploying screening equipment and technology to commercial airports. As of February 15, 2012, TSA stored approximately 5,700 pieces of security equipment in warehouses at TSA’s Transportation Logistics Center (TLC) in Dallas, Texas.”

  • As of February 15, 2012, the total value of TSA’s equipment in storage was, according to TSA officials, estimated at $184 million. However, when questioned by Committee staff, TSA’s warehouse staff and procurement officials were unable to provide the total value of equipment in storage.
  • TSA’s annual costs for leasing and managing the TLC are more than $3.5 million.
  • Committee staff discovered that 85% of the approximately 5,700 major transportation security equipment currently warehoused at the TLC had been stored for longer than six months; 35% of the equipment had been stored for more than one year. One piece of equipment had been in storage more than six years – 60% of its useful life.
