Charda Gregory abducted, humiliated, violated, restrained, scalped and tortured. 
If this were reversed, with black police officers who were sworn to uphold peace and justice but instead were documented victimizing a white woman (who was already a victim), this news would have trumped the Olympics!

Truncated version: drugged at a party, abducted to a motel, wakes up during unwanted sexual violation in a motel room full of strangers, fights like hell to escape, motel employee calls the authorities, she gets arrested for destroying motel property and it just gets worst from there.

Every officer who participated in it and even those who witnessed it and did nothing should be punished but instead they just fired the woman?
No rape kit, no police report on the people inside the motel room, no investigation of her claims, no accountability for missing motel entry records, no video from the motel but she gets detained for fourteen days?

(Btw, when did your tax dollars begin purchasing Abu Ghraib type water boarding chairs?)

I get angrier and angrier everyday when I see things like this.

Never be afraid to apologize to your child. If you lose your temper and say something in anger that wasn’t meant to be said, apologize. Children need to know that adults can admit when they are wrong.

This is so, so important.

The One who made this world didn’t have to make it beautiful. Strictly speaking, beauty isn’t necessary. We could communicate without music. We could be nourished by things that aren’t delicious. We could reproduce without the pleasure of sex. Why do we have all these miracles of sense experience? Why is there beauty and pleasure at all? If we live in a world of unnecessary beauty, it must mean that the heart that beats behind this world is a happy heart. It must mean the One who made us is exceedingly joyful and wants to share His joy with us.

Another comic I started last night. This one is basically about what it was like being African American in high school, minus the supernatural transformation at the end.

This is awesome.
