Woman jailed for getting pregnant, then dies from medical neglect

http://womensrights.change.org

Thrown in jail for getting pregnant? That seems like a particularly absurd violation of women's reproductive rights. But it's actually an established policy in Allegheny County, PA. Cara reports at the Curvature that, for Amy Lynn Gillespie, becoming pregnant meant violating the terms of her work release under probation, and getting thrown in jail. Yet this story comes to an even more tragic ending, because Gillespie died while in custody from advanced pneumonia.

I was stopped by the police today for smiling at them

http://www.reddit.com

On the way back from picking up something at the grocery store, I was walking down the street I live on and a cop car drove past. I was in a good mood, and despite reading many a horrible story about police officers abusing their power I respect the police and understand the vast majority of police are pretty cool. So, I thought i'd 'share the love' and give them a big ol' flash of my pearly whites to thank them for keeping my neighbourhood safe.The squad car immediately does a U-Turn and then turns right to cut me off as a cross a road. Both officers get out of the car...

Orlando Traffic Stop - You Gonna Get Out?

http://thepillarsofliberty.com

Several members of Orlando's most violent street gang decided to detain a peaceful citizen allegedly over a burned out taillight.

Was this gang initiation night, or was the cop just a touch frazzeled from not having his boots licked?

Disobey armed fundraisers for the state, make them show their selves as the aggressor.

Shiny badge, a blue costume or not; Armed Vehicular Robbery is still Robbery no matter how you shake it. If any Joe Citizen had intimidated someone with 4 other gang members and an armed carjacking they'd be in prison. Stop giving these crimes legitimacy.
