FaviconSouth Florida Cops Filmed Repeatedly Punching 14-Year-Old Black Girl 19 Oct 2018, 10:43 pm

There is virtually no reason for a group of large adult male cops to pin a 14-year-old girl to the ground and continully punch her in the ribs and kidneys. Yet after Coral Springs Police officers were filmed doing exactly that to a teen outside the Coral Square Mall yesterday, the police department is now trying to defend itself and callously throwing the teen under the bus for somehow provoking the beating.

FaviconJudge Rules Hollywood PD Shouldn't Have Arrested Gay Men for Private Sex Acts 19 Oct 2018, 5:28 pm

A Broward County judge has confirmed the Hollywood Police Department ruined the lives of ten gay men for no reason at all. This past July 26, Hollywood PD raided a gay-cruising hangout and arrested eight men allegedly caught masturbating in a private backroom and two others accused of performing oral sex on each other. The police department then sent the men's photos and names to the media, and many outlets happily blasted out the men's identities. One man said he was outed and fired from his job as a result.

FaviconMy Tumultuous Love Affair With Marilyn Manson 19 Oct 2018, 1:00 pm

Marilyn Manson. The name is as much a dichotomy as the character. It's half sweet and sexy Marilyn Monroe, half crazed, blood-thirsty Charles Manson. Marilyn Manson is edgy, groundbreaking, talented, and, some might even say, sensitive. He can also be threatening, violent, and unpredictable. Fans revere him; the religious right reviles him.
