Nigel Farage’s attack on Jo Cox’s widower is a new low. Enough | Owen Jones | Opinion | The Guardian
"When Farage’s power was queried, Kassam responded with a picture of Farage and Donald Trump in the president-elect’s golden lift. Don’t mess with Farage, was Kassam’s implication, because he now has the patronage of the soon-to-be most powerful man on Earth. (You can donate to Hope not Hate’s legal fund here )"

The List - The New Yorker
“High school was bliss for me,” DuBuc said recently. “I tried not to dwell on the stuff that wasn’t good.” But, as she was about to start her freshman year at Western Michigan University, she got a call from a close childhood friend, Victoria, who asked, “Did you know you’re on the public sex-offender registry?”


The [Texas sex offender treatment] plan also included a monthly polygraph ($150) and a computerized test that measured how long his eyes lingered on deviant imagery ($325). He would also have to submit to a “penile plethysmograph,” or PPG. ... Metts would be billed around $200 per test.


The prosecutor pushed for two years in prison... Metts’s attorney urged alternatives that would be less costly for taxpayers. None of Metts’s violations, he noted, had any connection to the original charges of sexual assault of a child. A typical mistake was failing to charge his ankle bracelet’s battery. The judge took some time to think it over. The next morning, she sentenced Metts to ten years in prison.

Inside the Horror Show That Is Congress | Rolling Stone
lots of typos in this but a good read, from 2005

"The House Rules Committee is perhaps the free world's outstanding bureaucratic abomination -- a tiny, airless closet deep in the labyrinth of the Capitol where some of the very meanest people on earth spend their days cleaning democracy like a fish."

Son of Baldwin – **********SIGNAL BOOST! PLEASE...
@MichaelAWoodJr details "policing that is corrupt, intentional or not"

sonofbaldwin: "When good cops go to their superiors with what they’ve seen, their superiors retaliate by suppressing the truth and leaking to the entire department that the officer is a 'snitch' (police officers are the originators of snitch culture).... In turn, the other police officers take revenge by not responding to the 'good' cop’s calls for help when they are out in the field. They alienate and abuse 'good' cops until they have no choice but to leave the force–that is, if they aren’t set up to be murdered."

How One Stupid Tweet Blew Up Justine Sacco’s Life -
Benjamin Rush: "'It would seem strange that ignominy should ever have been adopted as a milder punishment than death, did we not know that the human mind seldom arrives at truth upon any subject till it has first reached the extremity of error.'"

Author: "I found no evidence that punitive shaming fell out of fashion as a result of newfound anonymity. But I did find plenty of people from centuries past bemoaning the outsize cruelty of the practice, warning that well-meaning people, in a crowd, often take the punishment too far."

Suicide and the Economy - Elizabeth MacBride - The Atlantic
"My family had not only refused to speak of Roy, they rewrote the story of his death. Within hours, they closed ranks. A second cousin, a local policeman, told the newspaper Roy was subject to fainting spells. His mother said he died of a heart attack in a parking garage; according to another family story, he’d fallen in front of a train. Eventually, the lie became the truth. I flipped through the journals his mother wrote in 1950s. She mentioned Roy once, when a passerby reminded her of him. Then she went back later and whited out his name."

Pinkification: how breast cancer awareness got commodified for profit | SE Smith | Comment is free |
"The path of the pink ribbon, and breast cancer awareness in general, reflects a larger problem experienced by social movements. It seems that every time they develop a tool of solidarity and something to use as they work in a coalition to address a specific social issue, that tool is handily repurposed for profits – and before anyone can move to take it back, it's too late."

Reddit Users Attempt to Shame Sikh Woman, Get Righteously Schooled
"'When I die, no one is going to remember what I looked like, heck, my kids will forget my voice, and slowly, all physical memory will fade away. However, my impact and legacy will remain: and, by not focusing on the physical beauty, I have time to cultivate those inner virtues and hopefully, focus my life on creating change and progress for this world in any way I can.'" - she said on reddit

Watching Phil Donahue as an adult: the audience "woos" at nearly anything; Phil plays the "dunce" way too well; I actually agree with several callers.

Tiger Beatdown › Guess What? Shaming People For Being Fat Doesn’t Magically Make Them Thin!
"On the surface, encouraging people of all ages to eat more fresh food and exercise in safe and enjoyable ways if possible seems like generally sound advice. It would be better if it came with a side of actually enabling those activities, like addressing huge disparities in the food system and providing children with safe places to get outdoors and move around. This information, however, is usually delivered alone, and in this heavyhanded shaming format, one which primarily sets up fat people as targets of bullying and abuse; visitors to ‘Habit Heroes’ would learn that fat is your own fault and that fat people are bad, rather than learning more about the complex social, dietary, genetic, and other factors involved in weight. They would also learn that it’s acceptable to target fat people for commentary and ‘advice’ because it would be ‘for their own good.’ And they wouldn’t learn about the difficulties involved in accessing fresh food and exercise."
