A Viral Sex Crime Saga of Perverts, Pranksters, and Prosecutors - The Daily Beast
"The Suspect’s co-host had been giving interviews, making inflammatory comments, saying I was “clinging to his fame,” and generally egging everyone on. The Suspect would himself upload a video, saying, “If you thought some lying hysterical hag would make us stop, you’re wrong!”"

sick part of a sick thing, here is something i think people don’t understand,...
"real nazis have this unfortunate, terrifying habit of continuing to be nazis."
...
"no, we weren’t born bloodthirsty, just salivating at the chance to kick a nazi in the balls. we got driven here reluctantly, by history, to a place where violence in our defense can make us weep with gratitude. you drove us 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."

What Would Orwell Make of Obama's Drone Policy? - Ta-Nehisi Coates - The Atlantic
Orwell: "Thus political language has to consist largely of euphemism, question-begging and sheer cloudy vagueness."

Adam Serwer: "The government needs the approval of a judge to detain a suspected terrorist. To kill one, it need only give itself permission."

TNC: Consider the notion of "imminence." Last year Eric Holder claimed that a lethal strike against an American citizen can only be made if to protect against "an imminent threat of violent attack." But the white paper states that imminence "does not require that the United States to have clear evidence that a specific attack on U.S. persons or interests will take place in the significant future." Effectively, the word "imminence" has no meaning beyond "we think you're a bad guy."

Enemy Lurks in Briefings on Afghan War - PowerPoint - NYTimes.com
"'It’s dangerous because it can create the illusion of understanding and the illusion of control,' General McMaster said in a telephone interview afterward. 'Some problems in the world are not bullet-izable.'"

"In General McMaster’s view, PowerPoint’s worst offense is not a chart like the spaghetti graphic, but rigid lists of bullet points... that take no account of interconnected political, economic and ethnic forces. 'If you divorce war from all of that, it becomes a targeting exercise'"
