Woman 'raped' on train while other passengers did nothing

Woman 'raped' on train while other passengers stood by and did nothing

A woman has been allegedly raped on a train with police baffled why other passengers did nothing to help her.

Police in Upper Darby, in Philadelphia, were called to the 69th Street terminal on Wednesday about 10pm after reports of an assault on a train, Superintendent Timothy Bernhardt of the Upper Darby Police Department said.
Locals are wondering why no one did anything.
Also, love how they put raped in single quotes.
Hmm....

Pennsylvania Gun Laws Stricter Than Most Other States***8217;

Since 2004, the Brady Center to Prevent of Gun Violence, a gun-control advocacy group, has issued an annual 100-point scorecard ranking states on how stringent their gun laws are. According to the Brady Center***8217;s most recent rating, Pennsylvania has the 10th most strict gun laws in the U.S. Pennsylvania residents should be aware of the laws regarding buying, owning and using guns in the state.
Maybe that.

Maybe all the people out there that think this is right:


Maybe some of this?

So yeah. See - in a state that allows citizens to carry and does not go after them, someone could have stepped in - told the guy to stop what he was doing. To stay away. If the guy continued - you could stop the behavior.

But, the fact that no one even bothered to call 911 will tell you much about the folks in that area and how much they think calling 911 would make a difference.

So - yeah - good times in the City of Brotherly Love. Puts a little spin on that amirite?

Have a problem with Texas Abortion law?
Hey, just do it mail order!


How Mail-Order Abortion Could Circumvent the Texas Law - The Atlantic
The Abortion Backup Plan No One Is Talking About

Even in states with the strictest abortion laws, pregnant people have a safe, inexpensive option to terminate their pregnancies. But few know about it.

So many states have restricted access to abortion so severely that people in large swaths of the country feel they have no options if they want to terminate a pregnancy. But technically, those who want an abortion still have options. It***8217;s just that few have heard of them.

10-year-old Black girl handcuffed at school in Hawaii after drawing picture | TheHill

Quote:
The American Civil Liberties Union of Hawaii is seeking half a million dollars in damages on behalf of a Black 10-year-old girl who drew a cartoon some found offensive.

A bullied Black girl at Honowai Elementary School on Oahu drew a portrait of one of her alleged aggressors in January 2020. When the parent of the alleged bully saw the picture, she demanded the police get involved.

The Black girl, who is diagnosed with ADHD and only identified by the initials N.B., got arrested and taken to a station – the Pearl City Police Station.

According to the report by the ACLU, Business Insider cited, N.B. was handcuffed in front of her classmates, taken into custody, and interrogated by law enforcement without her mother present.

N.B. did not get charged with anything, and she got released to her mother, Tamara Taylor.

"A parent of one of the kids who received this drawing, was very upset and essentially demanded that they call the police," Mateo Caballero, an attorney for the child's family, told Hawaii News Now.

"She didn't bring any weapons to school, she didn't make any explicit threats to anyone," he added.

"That's just straight up wrong," ACLU of Hawaii Legal Director Wookie Kim told Hawaii News Now. "And there's nothing that condones or justifies that."

Keith Hui, who serves as the Leeward District Complex Area superintendent, which includes Honowai Elementary School, could not be reached for comment by Insider. A Hawaii Department of Education rep also declined to comment.

Initially, Taylor was blocked from seeing her child, and Taylor, herself, got detained at the school, according to the DailyMail.

“I was stripped of my rights as a parent and my daughter was stripped of her right of protection and representation as a minor. There was no understanding of diversity, African American culture and the presence of police involvement with African-American youth,” Taylor wrote in a letter to the school a few days later.

“My daughter and I are traumatized from these events and sure that there is no future for us at Honowai Elementary. I'm disheartened to know that this day will live with [N.B.] as a memory forever,” she added.
Interesting dynamic.
So, they make a point of saying the kid is black. Black, bullied, has adhd and that the family is 'traumatized'. They are putting out all the words to explain how much of a victim the kid is. They really want that 1/2 million bucks.

But - this is HI. So - on the current topic of "punching" - punching like this HI is different.

Are native Hawaiians considered punching up, down or sideways relative to blacks? Especially on Hawaiians home soil?

I give the Native Hawaiians the home court advantage here. So, I think a black person is punching down on native HI soil. Why?

I have always felt that HI has suffered a fate similar to Native Americans. Obviously not with the massacres. But, the introduction of gonorrhea, syphilis, influenza, cholera, tuberculosis, the mumps, measles, smallpox, and leprosy is basically bio warfare. And, the islands have changed immensely.

Also, native Hawaiians did not use African slaves. So, that card is removed.

An interesting battle. Would love to see the picture, though.

Yeah, I think that is ****ed up enough with having to constantly point out your skin colour or the fact that Police don't understand African American culture.

What does that even mean, that they should understand they are unpredictable and habitual criminals and ignore anything they do?

Hiker lost on mountain for 24 hours ignored calls from rescuers because he didn recognize phone number

(WHDH) ***8212; A hiker who was lost on a mountain for about 24 hours ignored calls from rescue crews because he didn***8217;t recognize the phone number, officials said.

The hiker was reported missing last week after they never returned from a trek on Mount Elbert in Colorado, the highest summit of the Rocky Mountains, according to Lake County Search and Rescue.

After an unsuccessful search of an area where hikers typically get lost, crews learned that the lost individual had returned to their place of lodging.

***8220;One notable take-away is that the subject ignored repeated phone calls from us because they didn***8217;t recognize the number,***8221; officials said in a news release. ***8220;If you***8217;re overdue according to your itinerary, and you start getting repeated calls from an unknown number, please answer the phone.***8221;

The hiker claimed they got lost when it got dark and that they reached their car the next morning.

White exec who sued for reverse discrimination wins $10M suit

Quote:
A former top executive at a North Carolina-based health care system has won $10 million in a legal battle over his claim that he lost his job because he is a white man.

David Duvall, a former senior vice president of marketing and communication at Novant Health, was awarded the money by a federal jury in Charlotte on Tuesday.

In his lawsuit, Duvall had alleged that he was pushed out of his job without warning or explanation in July 2018 as the company tried to diversify top leadership positions.

“We are pleased that the jury agreed that Duvall’s race and gender were unlawful factors in his termination — that he was fired to make room for more diverse leaders at Novant,” his attorney, S. Luke Largess, said in a statement to the Winston-Salem Journal.

“Duvall was a strong advocate of diversity at Novant. We believe the punitive damages award is a message that an employer cannot terminate and replace employees in order to achieve greater diversity in the workforce,” he added.

The healthcare company had argued that Duvall was fired because he had poor leadership skills.

A rep for Novant Health said the company was disappointed by Tueday’s verdict.

“We are extremely disappointed with the verdict as we believe it is not supported by the evidence presented at trial, which includes our reason for Mr. Duvall’s termination,” spokeswoman, Megan Rivers, told the newspaper. “We will pursue all legal options, including appeal, over the next several weeks and months.”

Man spent $150 eating every meal at Six Flags since 2014 to pay off student debt

Quote:
Talk about a meal ticket.

Hungry for financial flexibility, a California man named Dylan shelled out a measly $150 a year to eat every meal at Six Flags Magic Mountain in order to save thousands, pay off his student loan debt, get married and purchase a house in Los Angeles.

***8220;You can pay around $150 for unlimited, year-round access to Six Flags, which includes parking and two meals a day,***8221; Dylan, 33, explained to Mel Magazine Monday. ***8220;If you time it right, you could eat both lunch and dinner there every day.***8221;

The theme park offers guests a ***8220;premium season dining pass***8221; which allows visitors to enjoy lunch and dinner items, as well as a snack and unlimited drinks during every visit on any regular operating day, per Six Flags Magic Mountain***8217;s website. The deal, which doesn***8217;t include alcoholic beverages, is listed on the site at $109.99 plus tax.
Dylan, a 33-year-old electrical engineer in Santa Clarita, California, took advantage of Six Flags***8217; $150 yearly meal plan to pay off debt.

Afghanistan Wedding Ends With Alleged Taliban Gunning Down Guests Due to Music Being Played

Afghanistan Wedding Ends With Alleged Taliban Gunning Down Guests Due to Music Being Played

A wedding in Afghanistan's Nangarhar province turned deadly on Friday after alleged Taliban members shot and killed three people during a fight concerning whether music could be played, according to local town residents.

At least 10 others were injured during the altercation, which took place after three gunmen demanded that the wedding party stop playing music, NBC News reported. Two residents of the area said they recognized the gunmen as local Taliban members.

The gunmen "were harsh in their arguments with the family holding a marriage ceremony and local residents," one of the residents, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told NBC. "Their arguments led to an armed clash," he added, stating that the gunmen "opened fire and killed three people and injured 10 others."

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid denied that the three attackers were members of the group, but confirmed that the incident took place over a music dispute. Mujahid said the Taliban has so far arrested one person, with efforts underway to arrest the other two suspects.


"We draw the line at Lady Gaga. We were out with the goats and we heard "Poker Face" blasting from the compound. That was almost unbearable. But, when "*****, Don't Kill My Vibe" came on - we had enough."

The UN says $6B from the world's billionaires could solve the current hunger crisis. Elon Musk says he will sell Tesla stock and donate proceeds if the UN can prove that.
Quote:
Billionaire Elon Musk said he would sell Tesla stock and donate the proceeds if the United Nations could prove that just a tiny percentage of his wealth could solve the world's hunger crisis.

Musk was responding to comments by David Beasley, director of the UN's World Food Programme, who told CNN's Connect the World last week that a $6 billion donation from billionaires like Musk and Bezos could help 42 million people who are "literally going to die if we don't reach them."

Musk is currently the world's richest man and the first person ever to be worth north of $300 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. The Tesla CEO currently has a net worth of $311 billion, so $6 billion would be 2% of his wealth, and such a donation would still leave him besting the second richest man, Jeff Bezos, by at least $100 billion.

But Musk is challenging the claim that the amount will solve the current hunger crisis, saying on Twitter that if the World Food Programme can prove that, he will "sell Tesla stock right now and do it." He also demanded accountability about how the money would be spent.

Beasley responded to Musk by tweeting: "I can assure you that we have the systems in place for transparency and open source accounting. Your team can review and work with us to be totally confident of such."

He also clarified that the UN World Food Programme has never said $6 billion would solve world hunger. "This is a one-time donation to save 42 million lives during this unprecedented hunger crisis," he tweeted.

World Food Programme's Beasley has been repeating his call to billionaires, asking them to step up to the task of solving world hunger.

It took some cops on horseback - one of them black and yelling "Get the **** back" - to plug the gap.
The rest of the festival was cancelled.
