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.

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?

U.S. rights group sues to protect right to swear

http://news.yahoo.com

An American rights group is suing the police in Pennsylvania for issuing tickets, which carry a jail sentence, to people for swearing.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which filed the lawsuits earlier, argues that the right to use profanity is protected by the U.S. Constitution.
"Unfortunately, many police departments in the commonwealth do not seem to be getting the message that swearing is not a crime," said Marieke Tuthill of the ACLU of Pennsylvania. "The courts have repeatedly found that profanity, unlike obscenity, is protected speech."

Doctor Is Busted For Walking?!!?

http://articles.courant.com

On March 31 he was headed home, on foot as usual, on the far left of South Road. A car came in his direction, which he judged was going too fast and not as far into the middle of the road as he would have liked. As the car approached, Dr. Walsh waved his arms "as I usually do just to make sure the driver can detect motion and see me more clearly." He said the driver saw him but still came within 18 inches of him.
