the tortured page

Elijah Page was a convicted murderer who pled guilty to the brutal murder of his friend Chester Poage in 2000, both men were 19 at the time of the killing. Page was sentenced to be executed by lethal injection, a sentence that was carried out in 2007. Page had no last words, and his final meal consisted of steak, jalapeño poppers, onion rings and a salad.

The murder itself was especially brutal, Poage being tortured for three hours before he finally died. Page, along with accomplices, kidnapped him at gunpoint, and then forced him to drink acid, beat him, stabbed him in the neck and torso, and then forced him to remove all of his clothes after entering an icy creek. Poage’s body was not found until a month after the crime had taken place.

hard candy is a great movie because it’s basically about ellen page torturing a pedophile for 90 minutes but also, as someone with testicles, it’s quite difficult to watch at times

My little sister asked me to proof the final draft of her research paper that’s due Friday (she has tennis tomorrow so she can’t work on it then) and I was like, “Oh, sure. It’s a final draft so it can’t take that long. You’ve had it peer reviewed and you said the teacher looked it over so there should hardly be anything to correct.”

Over two hours later, I’m still sitting here with papers scattered around me. There are so many corrections. She’s used the word “best” fifteen times in two pages. There are sentences that switch tense halfway through. Who are these pronouns referring to? Everything is on fire and I’m about to break down every time I look at this paper. Not even on a grammar scale, it’s just completely unfounded and I can’t believe these are credible sources. You just cited that it’s the best medical care because it’s drug free, but now you’ve said that medications are prescribed along with treatments. What is the truth?

The CIA destroyed it's only copy of a torture report 'by accident'
The CIA inspector general’s office has said it “mistakenly” destroyed its only copy of a comprehensive Senate torture report, despite lawyers for the Justice Department assuring a federal judge that copies of the documents were being preserved. The erasure of the document by the spy agency’s internal watchdog was deemed an “inadvertent” foul-up by the inspector general, according to Yahoo News.

One intelligence community source told Yahoo News, which first reported the development, that last summer CIA inspector general officials deleted an uploaded computer file with the report and then accidentally destroyed a disk that also contained the document.

The 6,700-page report contains thousands of secret files about the CIA’s use of “enhanced” interrogation methods, including waterboarding, sleep deprivation and other aggressive interrogation techniques at “black site” prisons overseas.

The full version of the report remains classified, but a 500-page executive summary was released to the public in 2014.
