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.
When the Copsey brothers helped
build California’s Lower Lake Stone
Jail in 1876, they probably didn’t
plan on being the first to be jailed
inside of it after celebrating too
much at a local saloon. Luckily, they
remembered that they forgot to
secure the roof, so they were also
the first to escape. Source
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.
Prisoners who are allowed to have cats
in their cells not only display improved
behavior in order to keep their pets,
but can also experience a psychological
reawakening because they have
something in their lives to give them
unconditional love. Source
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.
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.
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. SourceSource 2
