Can’t stop, won’t stop: Protesters in Ferguson rally again, seeking justice for Mike Brown. More than a month and a half after his death, his killer, Darren Wilson, is still a free man. (Pt 2) 

Because it wouldn’t be a protest in Ferguson without fuckery from the police. A driver plowed his car through protesters, grazing several and running over a young boys foot. Beyond taking several hours to transport the boy to the hospital, they took even longer to arrest the motorist. Who did they not wait long to arrest? Two of the protesters who had been documenting the altercation for the world to see. If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. #staywoke #farfromover #nojusticenopeace

Pennsylvania Judge Sentenced For 28 Years For Selling Kids to the Prison System
Mark Ciavarella Jr, a 61-year old former judge in Pennsylvania, has been sentenced to nearly 30 years in prison for literally selling young juveniles for cash. He was convicted of accepting money in exchange for incarcerating thousands of adults and children into a prison facility owned by a developer who was paying him under the table. The kickbacks amounted to more than $1 million.The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has overturned some 4,000 convictions issued by him between 2003 and 2008, claiming he violated the constitutional rights of the juveniles – including the right to legal counsel and the right to intelligently enter a plea. Some of the juveniles he sentenced were as young as 10-years old.Ciavarella was convicted of 12 counts, including racketeering, money laundering, mail fraud and tax evasion. He was also ordered to repay $1.2 million in restitution.His “kids for cash” program has revealed that corruption is indeed within the prison system, mostly driven by the growth in private prisons seeking profits by any means necessary.

Why might this not be a HUGE national story and his name not household? I’ll give you one guess what color those kids were.

Stay FUCKING Woke.
We are not crazy. This shit is happening.

They need to overturn every conviction he made.
Immediately.

This is picking up more steam now. I just googled his name. More and more news sites are picking this story up. 
this shit is crazy

What the actual fuck.

That’s not how minimum wage increases work.

That’s correct, I also don’t think it was the meaning of the post.

I take offence to the whole post.A different skill set than academia is not a “minimum” skill set and does not deserve to not be able to afford to live.People cannot ask for a service and then treat the providers of that service with disdain.I hate this argument because it makes me absolutely furious and I find it very difficult to discuss without emotion.

Two things. First, Military pay doesn’t include the cost of living pay they get, or, if in the barracks, the room and board included in that. Secondly, the workforce in fast food is starting to become more and more populated by people with higher education due to the fact that jobs are more scarce and college degrees have been devalued.

We also get housing if living off post, and not to mention hazard pay for doing dangerous war like shit. This argument is silly. People deserve a living wage, why is this so hard to understand.

Straight from a man in the military.
