Displaying comments 1 to 50 of 2062On the death of Sandra BlandEveryone Has the Right to Mouth Off to Cops. U.S. courts have made this clear again and again and again.The courts have made it clear that individuals have a right to insult police officers. In 1987, the Supreme Court decided in City of Houston v.

Displaying comments 1 to 50 of 2061This train is coming like a ghost trainThey can't stop the trains. They can't tear down the stations. They've tried everything.

Displaying comments 1 to 50 of 2057“It was her debut… She wanted to do this.”The articles don't give an outsider like me that much to latch on to.
Right, here is some background. I wanted to make the post about Faigy, but I understand if people might not be familiar with the struggle she faced. We have talked a lot about Hasidic, Orthodox, and Ultra-Orthodox Jews on Metafilter. Those groups are distinct, but a lot of the concerns that Faigy raised are present in those communities in various ways. These past Metafiler posts... [more]

Displaying comments 1 to 50 of 2056Senator, please be careful of the backdrop... uh, nevermind.Power Lines in AnimeI clicked expecting anime "power" lines, like maybe the lines around a character when they are crackling with weird magic powers or the lines that spring up around characters when they strike poses and YELL THINGS!
