the commercials on BBC America were driving me crazy because the guy doing the voice overs sounded so familiar
I looked it up and it’s Mark Sheppard
The King of Hell is the voice of BBC America
Please note: “everyone who works retail, admin, or labor” is pretty much everyone. I can’t remember the last time I worked somewhere without “security” cameras that monitored employees.
I’m having a good laugh right now because our associates just got collectively reprimanded for leaning on the counters during 8 hour shifts on their feet, because it isn’t “professional” looking. So apparently they can put up with a camera over their shoulder to make sure they do their jobs correctly, but a cop with a gun cant?

He called on parents to take responsibility for their sons’ actions, saying parents must teach their sons the difference between right and wrong.
"When we hear about these rapes our heads hang in shame," Mr Modi said.
"Young girls are always asked so many questions by their parents, like ‘where are you going?’. But do parents dare to ask their sons where they are going?" he asked.
“Those who commit rape are also someone’s sons. It’s the responsibility of the parents to stop them before they take the wrong path,” he added.
Okay, say what you want about him, but this is a big deal. This is Prime Minister Modi’s first Independence Day address since being elected. And instead of using this time to talk about Pakistan, like every other Independence Day speech in the past, he stood up there and talked about INDIA’s need for improvement. And amongst his topics, he talked about rape.
And he didn’t describe it as “accidental” or “boys making mistakes”, and he didn’t state that women need to “dress more dignified”, all of which have been said by other Indian politicians. For once, we’re hearing someone put the blame on the rapist, and actually calling out parents to raise their sons properly. Like everyone else, I’m still hoping Modi isn’t another PM who is all talk.
I don’t know about you, but this is pretty awesome and epic.
One address may not change everything, but being the first Indian PM to acknowledge the problem in boys being never taught about not to rape somebody, it is a pretty big deal. Not to mention that (no offence) India is one of the places where you hear the most about horrible rape cases, and where sexism is still pretty much at large. Modi’s Independence Day address is not just significant to India, it is significant to all countries. If the leader of India can acknowledge this, why can’t any of you?
Open your eyes. Spread the word.
The man in the picture is Rachid Nekkaz, a French-Algerian businessman living in France.
He heard about the niqab ban in France. Then he announced that he will pay all fines for women who wear the niqab - not just in France but “in any country in the world that bans women from doing so”.
He opened a fund of € 1 million. Then he said, “My sister, go out free wherever you want and I will pay the fine for you”
Allahu Akbar, May Allah reward him.
Take note FEMA this is how you properly do activism to help women who cover themselves.
AND THEN JOHN SAYS THAT ONE BRILLIANT THING AND SHERLOCK LIGHTS UP LIKE A CHRISTMAS TREE AND SNOGS HIM RIGHT THEN AND THERE BEFORE DRAGGING HIM OFF TO THE NEXT THING, JOHN WAVING GOODBYE TO THE YARD AS THE GO
Ahhhh it makes me feel so warm and fuzzy XD I want clingy Sherlock. Always.
After seeing the dramatic results from the Ice Bucket Challenge, Indian journalist Manju Latha Kalanidhi was compelled to start something similar, but with an Indian slant. “I felt like doing something more locally tangible. Rice is a staple here,” Kalanidhi told CNN. “We eat it every day, we can store it for months. Why not donate rice to someone who is hungry?”

According to the Washington Post, up until three years ago Darren Wilson worked for the Jennings Police Department, located not far from from the city of Ferguson. The Jennings police department was also made up of mostly white officers, who were supposed to be protecting and serving a mostly black community. Instead, there were so many problems between the police and residents of the town, that the entire 45 person police force was fired. Wilson was one of the officers who lost his job, when the Jennings police force was disbanded.
The city of Jennings has a population of only 14,000 residents, 89 percent of those citizens are black. The racial make-up of the city’s police force, on the other hand, was something like 43 white officers to two black officers. Much like Ferguson, the poverty rate is high and full time employment is scarce. Rodney Epps, one of the Jennings city council members who voted to disband the entire police force, told the Washington Post that the city was plagued racial tension.
“The straw that broke the camel’s back, an officer shot at a female. She was stopped for a traffic violation. She had a child in the back [of the] car and was probably worried about getting locked up. And this officer chased her down Highway 70, past city limits, and took a shot at her. Just ridiculous,”
Epps said during an interview, published on August 23.
After a string of lawsuits over unnecessary force, including accusations of police beating and attacking residents without cause, along with federal and state investigations that revealed fraud and corruption inside the Jennings police department, the city council realized that the entire force was a liability, instead of an asset.
The council voted 6-1 to shut down the Jennings police department, fire all 45 officers who belonged to it, and start over.
While there are no specific reports about Darren Wilson at this time, Lt. Jeff Fuestang, who was appointed to run the city’s new police department described conditions in Jennings at the time the that Wilson was fired:
“There was a disconnect between the community and the police department. There were just too many instances of police tactics which put the credibility of the police department in jeopardy. Complaints against officers. There was a communication breakdown between the police and the community. There were allegations involving use of force that raised questions.”
So much for that spotless record. Darren Wilson, along with 44 other cops, was fired because of serious misconduct, excessive force and rampant corruption. Why is that not on his record?
I grew up in St Louis after our family moved there from England. The racial segregation is really bad. Many white people in St Louis (especially in STL County) are truly racist and bigoted.
Interesting how the background of the police is never questioned and always excused by reformist media
and to add the the above comment it’s interesting how the background is ignored because “the officer is doing his duty” and is seen as a public servant for like the Greater Good, but when you say “all cops are scumbags” then they want to talk about individuality.

I can’t fucking stand it when people say stuff like “oh every 13 year old thinks they’re bi” because:
I didn’t let myself DARE think it.
I was TERRIFIED to find myself attracted to multiple genders…
because biphobic assholes kept insisting bi wasn’t real and I thought something was horribly wrong with me.
