Due to the current popularity of tiny computers and man’s relentless desire to watch nudity absolutely everywhere, Wi-Fi hotspot usage is on the rise. Unfortunately, with that comes the problem of people, knowingly or not, connecting to unsecure wireless networks without permission. It’s not like hacking the freaking Pentagon here – if you’re in public, your computer will automatically look for a signal and, if there’s no security (such as a password) to get online, you can connect to it in seconds. Say you’re on a park bench a block away from Starbucks, but their signal juuust reaches you. So, you log in and check your email.

Hell, if they left it unsecured, they probably WANT people to use it, right? And even if not, it’s not like it can get you thrown in prison.

Oh wait … it totally can.

Say hello to the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, which makes it a crime to gain “unauthorized access” to a computer or a website. What does “unauthorized access” actually mean? Nobody knows. But the law says it applies to wireless routers. Luckily, law enforcement has lately become more lenient in enforcing “Wi-Fi squatting” in relation to the CFAA. So they probably won’t bust you for the federal crime of stealing wireless Internet (even though they totally could, if they some day feel like it), but it doesn’t matter, because that’s where your state’s laws kick in.

Arrested for not possessing a valid drivers license, held in custody because she couldn’t make bail, “failure to receive adequate medical attention” is the reason of her death. On April 26th she was in a car accident and instead of taking her to the hospital they detained her. Died last Tuesday in police custody in the Walker County Jail in Huntsville,Texas. The same jail that killed #SandraBland. No one knows, no one is talking about this, no cause of death has been given, and even her hometown had no idea she was dead. 

Since Sandra Bland’s death July 13, 2015 over 810 people have died in Jail. That’s not including inmates who died in prison, and not including numbers from jails who keep data private. Last July five Black women were found dead in jails

Police have killed 629 people this year, the last person was killed yesterday. 

After graduation, Ferguson went to Sullivan University in Louisville, Kentucky to further his pursuit of becoming a chef. However, he was met with disappointment after discovering his academic funding was only partial. Although excelling in Sullivan’s Culinary Arts program, he started selling drugs on the side to make ends meet.

Fortunately, he was able to graduate but continued to sell drugs & was arrested eight times in 3months. He lost everything he owned, including his place of residence, and eventually became homeless. 

“The last time getting locked up, I remembered being in class & them talking about being a statistic & how once you get in the system you can’t get out,” 

he said. “I started thinking that now I’m the guy that I didn’t want to be. That’s when I told myself that I was going to get serious about something I know that I can do, which is cooking.” He focused on opening his own restaurants. 

Ferguson named his pop-up restaurant SuperChefs, after his nickname throughout his culinary career & his time at 2008 Olympics in Beijing, China, where he was one of 22 chefs chosen. After a few years, the 28-year-old chef opened SuperChefs in June, in a 4,500-square-foot space. He now employs approximately 35 people.

Went from selling dope to being super dope! Real hero right there. Especially in the oppressive merican system.

An armed man barricades himself in a motel, takes out his gun and shoots at the cops. 

It wasn’t a maybe or we thought he had a gun, this was 100% him shooting at them, but AMAZINGLY with this guy they were able to handle the situation without killing him.

Authorities said they responded to a call of a despondent man at the Hyland Motel in the 700 block of South Brea Boulevard at about 3 p.m.

When officers arrived at the scene, they said the man fired at them through the door.

After being barricaded for several hours with SWAT outside the motel, the man was eventually shot with bean bags and tackled by SWAT.


And once again white privilege prevails. #Hate it!

No Filter: A Mexican Juvenile Prison Seen Through The Lens Of Its Young Inhabitants

Alonso Castillo is a Mexican freelance photographer. In 2013, Castillo and a writer led a photography workshop in Instituto de Tratamiento y de Aplicación de Medidas para Adolescentes (ITAMA), a prison for juvenile in the city of Hermosillo, Sonora in northwestern México.

ITAMA houses approximately 450 boys and men. All the prisoners were convicted as juveniles but currently 70% of the prisoners are adults as they’ve turned 18 during their incarceration.

10 boys aged between 15 and 21 took part in the workshop. Castillo and his colleague made only technical recommendations in order for the boys to take advantage of available light and framing.

“The boys decided how to work and what to photograph,” says Castillo.

At the end of the summer workshop, they mounted an exhibit Desde Adentro within the prison.

I interviewed Castillo about the experience and the function of these photographs. Read: No Filter: A Mexican Juvenile Prison Seen Through The Lens Of Its Young Inhabitants

Mike Anderson was sentenced to 13 years in prison. When his order to report to jail never came, he turned his life around, started a family, and opened his own business. The jail discovered the error on his ‘release date’ 13 years later and imprisoned him for 10 months, but a judge let him go because he was a 'changed man’ and jail no longer served a purpose.

A beautiful 22-year-old mother of a 3-year-old-daughter died in police custody on Tuesday, May 10, and nobody’s talking. Not the police. Not the jail. Not the medical examiner. Not the local press.

List of black women who were taken into police custody alive & left dead grows.
