An excellent article about a brilliant young activist. Charleston is privileged (no pun intended) to have Muhiyidin d'Baha working to make our community a more just place for all of us.
It was a well run and well attended event. The weather was iffy but 3,000 or so attended. Having people march from various locals throughout the city was a stroke of genius. Court and crew are to be commended for their efforts.
Making America great, One deviant bunch at a time.
Fairly informative and practical article, but "choose their gender"? No, it's not a choice, it's who they ARE. A boy "trapped" in a girls body or vice versa and is completely unrelated to sexuality, which is independent of anyone's gender (innate or perceived). And no one goes to the YMCA to troll for sex in the showers, though public accessible showers should all have private stalls and not be communal. Has anyone heard a word about trans-gendered (not cross-dressers as Oklahoma Speaker, Charles McCall and a LOT of the uninformed, think they are, apparently) trolling bathrooms? No, unlike some our nation's congressmen, who have been caught red - er - handed (or footed)!
Did you know that 10% of all college women will be raped? Or that 20% will suffer from persistent unwanted sexual advances? Or that in 2015 there were 26,000 reported rapes in the US armed forces. 14,000 of these were men raping men? The problem seems to be with hetero males. So lets ban them from all public facilities. Makes as much sense as your saying males will pretend to be trans to enter a woman's restroom. Since 80-90% of child victims know their abuser the problem is not in restrooms. It is in the home, sports facility, pulpit (google clergy sexual abuse). But let's ignore all this and instead focus on a non-existent problem. One created to keep us in the closet.
A motion presented to the court reads. The history and purpose of South Carolina code 16 15 385 indicates that it is aimed at preventing harm to children from [by] displaying materials that are pornographic to the children in an effort to have sex with the children. The purpose of the statute was not to make it a crime for adult persons having sex in their own home if one of their minor children are present in the home or walked into the room and discover their parents having sex. The statues aim is the protection of physical and psychological well-being of children. A mother having physical relations in this current case when her 8 to 11 month old is walking through the room cannot harm the physical well-being of their minor child. A mother having physical relations in this current case when her 8 to 11 month old child is walking through the room cannot harm the psychological well-being of the minor child. The child does not even understand what the child is seeing.
An adult couple in South Carolina are charged with 16 15 385 disseminating harmful material or exhibiting harmful performance to Minors they're both facing 40 years.
Great article but there are a whole lot more laws in South Carolina you need to talk about
Erik, thanks for the response.
I did state that none of the incidents, initially, should lead to a death sentence. The officer is expected to follow a set of rules that lead to an escalation of force, ultimately leading to lethal force. If the person interacting with police does not 'Check off the boxes' on that escalation list, the officer cannot legally resort to the use of deadly force.
"The officer murdered Walter Scott and planted his taser." This was discussed in court and will be part of what any potential jury must think upon when determining if the officer is justified or not in the next trial. My comments relate to what happened PRIOR to the shots being fired.
But does the police have the right to be judge,jury and executioner. You seem to be missing this point. Walter Scott murdered this man and then tried to cover up his crime by planting the taser next to his body. What law says a police officer can do this? Respect truly is a two way stree, but unfortunately, it's a one way road for Walter Scott and dozens of crooked cops across this country.
A vehicle is a weapon when someone is driving it towards you, they have every right to shoot the guy. my opinion
Like asking the fox to watch the hen-house. Gowdy's obvious and angry arrogance is sickening?
Officers are not supposed to shoot at vehicles. If the man had been shot, he could have caused an accident, could have killed someone.
Trey Gowdy is perfect for the Republicans to run the investigation. He spent years trying to get an indictment on Hillary when the Rpubs swore there was irrefutable evidence, so I'm sure he won't find anything damning his own party.
Oh, and uh, Joe Wilson, I wasn't aware we were concerned about future missile attacks reaching us from an airbase in Syria.
Caveat Emptor, Caveat Venditor...yup...got to legislate everything...or so it seems. *sigh
Joseph P. Riley Jr. stated, People come here and they get ripped off or someone says, Well, Ill give you a tour, and they dont have the basic knowledge and give you a bunch of bum information that they eventually find that was bogus ..."
Pfffft. People come to Charleston and eat terrible food everyday and Joe isn't worried about the city's culinary reputation. Let the free market decide what tours sink or swim.
Besides, that test is an embarrassment. There is virtually no history about Africans or African Americans - you know, the people that constituted the majority population into the 20th century. The test is a reflection of what the old ladies in the preservation society value: the homes and gardens of rich people.
Then there's Ghost Tours. How in the wide, wide world of sports are you testing for the supernatural?
Here's an idea, Charleston: Come clean up the mess those horse carriages leave behind on my street and stop worrying about testing people on boxwoods and Adams architecture.
Lived in the UK for 4 years, have worked in Canada on and off for the last 10. I work in minimally invasive surgical equipment development.
Happy to send you photos of my London neighbors' NHS provided dental care. Suggest you don't look at them on a full stomach, son.
