“Only in America can a dead black boy go on trial for his own murder.”— -Syreeta McFadden
I swear, these people will riot and loot over a fucking hockey game.
(I know you can’t tell because they’re covering their faces, but I am assured they’re all black.)
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.” — Douglas Adams, A Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
Being a substitute, at least where I sub, is actually pretty fun. You get exposed to a variety of subjects, a variety of teaching methods, and a variety of kids. It certainly creates interesting questions and comparisons.
There are a couple of classes where the kids are very well-behaved and I think I should arrange to sit-in on the class when the teacher is there so I can observe their classroom management approach.
Of course, well-behaved doesn’t a priori mean they’re learning, but it sure helps.
The downside when subbing for a teacher with whom you are not familiar is that you don’t know what to expect or why the instructor chose that particular activity. Sometimes you only figure it out in hindsight, but it’d be nice to be able to explain it to the occasional student who doesn’t buy-into what they’re doing.
I’m still paid about the same as someone who works at Bodo’s Bagels. I want to be a teacher but I gotta say I question why I do this rather than go back to making twice the money saving American lives for DoD.
trigger warning: rape, sexual assault
An Oklahoma City police officer was arrested Thursday and charged sexually assaulting at least six women while he was on patrol, though police expect more alleged victims to come forward.
Daniel Holtzclaw is charged with rape, oral sodomy and sexual battery. The three-year veteran of the force is being held on a $5 million bond, Reuters reports.
Police said the assaults took place while Holtzclaw was on the job, in some cases as a result of traffic stops.
alright first of all it’s really important to know that he attacked black women ages 34-58, where he demanded they expose themselves, fondle them, raping them, and either asking or demanding oral sex from them.
ladies of oklahoma, if you’ve been attacked by this man, most likely during traffic stops, please don’t be scared to report. this guy’s looking at life in prison and i’m sure your brave contribution would confirm his confinement.
Fark Rides Again
Rapmaster2000: (Sarcasically lampooning the Tea Party’s response to Ferguson) "The Tea Party is a nonpartisan, grassroots organization of ordinary citizens who are only concerned about the budget."
Throughout the late 1960s, the justices of the Supreme Court spent at least one day each year in the basement watching porn together. By all accounts, it was fantastically awkward. Unable to define “obscenity,” but convinced that the First Amendment couldn’t protect unduly dangerous and morally corrupting expression, the Court was forced to create constitutional law one sex-scene at a time.
