THERE IS BULLSHIT EVERYWHERE. OUR MISSION IS TO BRING IT TO YOUR ATTENTION.
This week in the UK, Judge Nigel Peters gave a suspended sentence to 41 year-old Neil Wilson after he pleaded guilty to “making extreme pornographic images and one count of sexual activity” with a 13 year-old girl. The judge explained his leniency as stemming from the fact that “the girl was predatory and was egging you on.” During the trial, the prosecution had declared the girl was “sexually experienced” and that “She appeared to look around 14 or 15 and had the mental age of a 14 or 15 year old despite being younger than that. There was sexual activity but it was not of Mr. Wilson’s doing, you might say it was forced upon him despite being older and stronger than her.” Law enforcement also found “a stash of images and videos depicting child abuse and bestiality” in Wilson’s home, but sure, the 13 year-old girl is the predator here.
Is there a process for removing judges from the bench in the UK? Because I can think of a judge who needs to go to hell and never come back.

Stop South Dakota from making the displacement of children from their families into a money-making business!
The state of South Dakota receives thousands of dollars from the federal government for every child it seizes from a family. As a result, South Dakota is removing 3 times more children than any other state.
Welcome to the scary new world of mining in Scott Walker’s Wisconsin.
Debate over a proposed open-pit iron ore mine in northern Wisconsin went from heated to outright bizarre last week when masked guards brandishing assault rifles showed up at the site in the remote and scenic wilderness of Penokee Hills.
These so called “Eco Terrorists” that these guards are protecting the mining site from are a group of Native American people who have established a harvest camp, their right under the treaties, near the site of the proposed mine. More information on that here.
The mine and the Wisconsin government, including Gov. Scott Walker, are trying to paint these Native people as terrorists, I don’t know about you but a guy with a semi-automatic rifle is more terrifying to me than a bunch of Ojibwe kids out picking berries, and elders gathering medicines and wild veggies, herbs.
