DAY CARE WORKERS ALLEGEDLY RAN ‘FIGHT CLUB’ FOR TODDLERS

Two former employees of a New Jersey day care are facing serious charges for allegedly creating a “fight club” made up of a dozen children aged 4 to 6 — and then recording the entire incident.

Erica Kenny, 22, and Chanese White, 28 are charged with fourth-degree child abuse for orchestrating these deranged fights. According to NJ.com, Kenny is also looking at an additional third-degree endangering the welfare of a child charge.

Union County Assistant Prosecutor Michael Sheets claimed Kenny acted as the camerawoman, recording the fights and uploading them to the social media platform Snapchat. Though the short videos are only available for 24 hours, someone captured the clip and forwarded it to investigators. (X)

[Top] “The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar Left, and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black. But by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”

[Bottom]  “Look, we understood we couldn’t make it illegal to be young or poor or black in the United States, but we could criminalize their common pleasure. We understood that drugs were not the health problem we were making them out ot be, but it was such a perfect issue…that we couldn’t resist it.”

Sorry Kim Davis, GoFundMe’s New Policy Prevents Conservatives From Raising Money For You

The arrest of wayward Kentucky clerk Kim Davis for refusing to issue marriage licenses as required by law has major implications for her financial outlook – and not just because this means she’ll have to resign if she doesn’t back down. As we’ve seen a dizzying amount of times, conservatives have used the popular fundraising site GoFundMe to enrich and support people who they believe are on their…

Interviewer: When did you actively start to bring the devil into your life, worship-wise?

Richard Ramirez: It was about 1980, and I was hustling on the streets. I landed in jail for a month or two for petty theft. I met up with this guy who was a Satan worshiper. For those two months I was with him, then I get out of jail, but my mind didn’t. I remembered everything he said, which basically was, “Why worship the good guy, when the things you do aren’t so good?” Somehow it just made sense to me, to worship something that would protect you in what you were doing.

Stop-and-frisks Dropped but Crime Didn’t Rise

Stop-and-frisks are way down in New York City, and crime rates have, if anything, continued to fall. It seems the stop-and-frisk program may not have been the driving force behind the drop in crime after all.

Justice, revenge, rehabilitation, and redemption

I grew up watching stories in which the bad guy pretty much always died. Usually the good guy tried to save them, but was unable to. Sometimes the good guy actually killed the bad guy. Regardless, this was always seen as a good thing, as true justice.

For a few years I worked in local news, and I saw a mindset similar to this play out in the comments section on any crime story. People were so eager for the accused to be subjected to physical violence. Many people claimed they were willing to do it themselves.

Nowhere in any of these narratives was there room for redemption, for rehabilitation, for helping a person who went wrong get right again.

It feels like we are happy to abandon people, killing them off or leaving them in prison. Like we have no interest in helping anyone but ourselves. Like the only true justice is swift, violent vengeance.

I don’t want to live in a world where a person isn’t allowed to try to be good again.
