Parents to be jailed for not going to parent-teacher conferences

http://www.google.com

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said that's indicative of a larger issue in Detroit, where the lack of making parents accountable for their children partly is blamed on elevated truancy and dropout rates, as well as a recent rash of violent crimes involving teens.

Worthy has a new idea she hopes will fix the problem: Jail parents for up to three days for repeatedly missing scheduled parent-teacher conferences.

Woman detained for 12 hours with her kids left in the car, can't sue

http://www.baltimoresun.com

Eyrania Smith was detained on an outstanding warrant at a Baltimore County police station after she was stopped for a speeding violation. They took her to the precinct and cuffed her to a pole by her wrist and ankle while they left her two kids in the car on the side of the road. Turns out that warrant was bogus in the first place. A judge has ruled that so many people were responsible for this mistake that no individuals can be held liable.

"A German man is facing up to six months in prison for having a speech by Adolf Hitler as mobile phone ring tone" --- Ok, so obviously the guy in question could choose a better ringtone (Rammstein, perhaps?), but is it a good idea to use the tactics of totalitarianism to stamp out the history of totalitarianism?

Goverment I.C.E.'ing movie sharing online.

http://www.variety.com

Apparently, it is now the job of "I.C.E" (as if they didn't choose that just to try to be scary), to shut down not only illegal immigrants, but also...illegal movie watching on the internet.

A popular site, linked here: http://www.movies-links.tv/index.html now redirects you to a super-creepy "we will hurt you" style message from your happy servants in the federal government.

Say what you will about internet piracy, but what does I.C.E. have to do with this?

WASHINGTON — A US law banning the selling of so-called "light" or "mild" cigarettes took effect Tuesday, but some anti-tobacco groups say the makers are sidestepping the rules by using color-coding packaging.

The packaging says, "Your Marlboro Lights pack is changing. But your cigarette stays the same. In the future, ask for 'Marlboro in the gold pack."
