Ohio cop tells black man he tailed him and pulled him over for ‘direct eye contact’

http://www.rawstory.com/2015/08/ohio-cop-tells-black-man-he-tailed-him-and-pulled-him-over-for-direct-eye-contact/comments/#disqus


A black Ohio man got a police officer to admit to him on video that he followed him for nearly two miles and pulled him over for making “direct eye contact,” talk show host David Pakman reported.

“As suspicious as ‘making direct eye contact’ may be to a police officer, doing the exact opposite — that is, avoiding eye contact with a police officer — could be considered equally suspicious by an officer,” Pakman noted. “In other words, both making eye contact and not making eye contact with police could, conceivably, be grounds for a traffic stop, if you agree with the general principle suggested herein.”


The motorist, John Felton, posted the video online after the encounter earlier this month, saying he started recording as soon as the officer started tailing him as he drove to his mother’s house in Dayton

School Bans Child’s Wonder Woman Lunchbox – Considered Too Violent



A child’s school has banned her lunchbox, because it features the comic book character Wonder Woman.

The school sent the unnamed girl home with a letter for her parents, explaining why they deem it inappropriate – which a family friend and Reddit user has posted online for the world to weigh in on.

Reddit user twines18 posted a photo of the letter sent, along with a couple of snaps of the child’s lunchbox, explaining that the school finds Wonder Woman to be a figure that represents violence.

But it’s not just this particular superhero that the school has it in for – they don’t allow any superheroes to be worn on clothing, backpacks or lunchboxes of the children.

http://www.rawstory.com/2015/08/watch-philly-cop-threatens-to-impound-mans-car-unless-he-buys-tickets-to-police-fundraiser/


A Philadelphia police officer was relegated to desk duty after getting caught on video threatening to impound a man’s car unless he bought tickets to a department fundraiser.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Chief Charles Ramsey ordered that Officer Matthew Zagursky’s gun be taken away from him after seeing footage of Zagursky’s actions during a traffic stop.





“You and your friend got any money to buy these thrill show tickets? Support your police department? Ten bucks each, man,” Zagursky tells the driver. “Either you buy these, or I take your car. ‘Cause it’s unregistered. Ten bucks each, man.”

Anna Duggar ‘partly blames herself’ and will never leave her cheating anti-LGBT activist husband

http://www.rawstory.com/2015/08/anna-duggar-partly-blames-herself-and-will-never-leave-her-cheating-anti-lgbt-activist-husband-source/


Anna Duggar won’t likely leave her husband despite his admitted cheating and will instead blame herself, according to a new report.

Josh Duggar, the former reality TV star and anti-LGBT activist, admitted Thursday to an addiction to pornography and infidelity after reports revealed he paid for two accounts on the adultery website Ashley Madison.


This comes three months after revelations that he molested four of his sisters and a family friend as they slept more than a decade ago, when he was a teenager.

A source told People magazine that Anna Duggar, who gave birth last month to the couple’s fourth child, would likely “absorb some of the blame” for her husband’s cheating.

“Anna will not leave him,” the source said. “As with her in-laws, she is turning more to her faith than ever. She and Josh are probably praying around the clock right now, I would assume.”

Crap!

Has anyone been on a job interview and got asked a weird question like Who would you be Batman or

Robin?

Or If you had to be natural disaster what would you be and why?



Why are people being asked these questions and how do you answer them?


My wife got asked this question and she asked Which Robin are we talking about and she went on to show that she knew the Batman lore and my wife was thinking if I say batman it would show a strong leader if she said Robin it might show her as a follower or weak.

I am finding a lot of friends being ask those questions and I just wonder if there is a right way to answer these questions?

"We don't get a 1/2 lunch. they give us a 10 min break every 2 hours..."

What is wrong with this country where a person can't get a 1/2 to eat lunch. My friend is working for a staffing company (That's another thing: all companies in my are hiring through staffing agencies as indefinite temps) So after being out of work for 7 months My friend took a job in a warehouse like setting getting practice kits together and insurance catalog anyways they can't sit down to do any of the work and they don't give a 1/2 lunch. because it took too long to punch out so here are these people rushing to the lunch room every 2 hours to get a few bites of food and all this because it pays a whole whopping $1.75 above min wage.
