2 Shot Following Shooting At Aztec High School. Aztec, NM

I live in Farmington, and was driving to Aztec on my way up North for work when this happened.

Found out about it from my son's School in Farmington going on lockdown.

The amount of people driving at high speed from Farmington to Aztec, assumably parent's trying to pick up kids... It was quite heartbreaking.

Hey guys, I'm a local. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. 3 confirmed dead, 14 wounded. One shooter dead.

I'm in Aztec. I graduated last year so a lot of the people are my friends. We are a very small town. Everyone kind of knows each other. Can't go anywhere without running into someone you know. Casey Jordan and Paco Fernandez. I didn't personally know any of them but Casey's mom is a close family friend. We gave her our graduation decorations for Casey so she could save some money. My moms co-workers were all at the police station or wherever when a police man came to her and took her away into a room. Everyone heard her screaming when they told her that her daughter wasnt okay. The locked down all the schools in the area and bussed all the AHS kids to McGee park to reunite with parents. Caseys mom didn't get go go to the park to pick up her kid today. My sister said she knew her. My sister had to go take a psychology final right after finding out she died at the college. All my friends are devastated. They recently confirmed that it was another student who was the shooter. One of us. Its nice to see everyone come together though. I've never seen our school united so quickly. Once a Tiger, always a Tiger. Stay strong people. We are trying our best. Sorry if my grammar or spelling is off. I'm talking to so many different people right now. Dont really have time to make sure everything is 100% right. Thanks for the support. Love you all

Forcing kid to masturbate for cops in sexting case was wrong, court finds

Forcing kid to masturbate for cops in sexting case was wrong, court finds

When this bizarre effort was unsuccessfully attempted, Abbott then obtained a second warrant authorizing police to escort Sims to a hospital for an "erection-inducing injection." This injection ultimately never took place after massive public outcry.

Abbott committed suicide in December 2015 when officers came to arrest him on separate charges relating to pedophilia.

After all of that, the cop was a pedophile. That's fucking insane.

What the fuck is with those judiciary decisions to grant those warrants??? Jesus Christ those judges need to be removed.

I feel like that point should have been self evident DURING all that, not after.

If you want to be really outraged, read King's dissenting opinion on this case.

To Judge King all police officers have a moral duty to uphold the sanctity of every court order without hesitation, and there's nothing unconstitutional about forcing a 17 year old to jack off under duress in front of a bunch of grown, armed men.

Our justice system, ladies and gentlemen. That was the opinion of 1/3rd of the judges who decided this case.

Edit: Victim was 17 y/o, not 15.

Nothing like cracking open a cold one after a long day of work.

Without the internet, I couldn't hear about stuff like this while I take shits at work.

What a glorious invention

Ahh, Willirico on the front page. Refreshing.

Just another day in paradise/Heroin Town USA.

Aaron stated he knew the victim hated having sex with him so he figured that the victim might wake up if he had sex with her.

You don’t say...

Edit: oh, he has a go fund me for her funeral/drug money. Lovely. No money raised yet though.

Probably one the darkest jokes I’ve ever laughed at. Good one

As a US citizen, I'm really puzzled as to why you would want legitimate terrorists to be accepted back into your country. These people go commit jihad, kill innocent people, and they were somehow welcomed back with open arms?

He means they can only return if they're very well-hung

The two subjects aren't nearly related.

We already have laws in Australia stripping ISIS members of citizenship, which means their passports are cancelled and they can't return to Australia.

Not gonna lie, I always check air bnb bathrooms and bedrooms because of this.

You should the same in motels and hotels. Happens there too.

I mean of course they are. You’ve got to think that there are tons of people out there that only do airbnb to get footage like this

I once had a friend find a camera in the bathroom of the apartment he and his wife leased. It ain't just Airbnb folks.

House Passes Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act

House Passes Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act

So I live in Maine. I can buy any handgun that's legal in Maine and CC in even the strictest places like NYC?

You would still need to abide by other restrictions such as magazine limits, etc. (as I read it) So your gun or configuration can't be illegal in that state, even if it's legal in yours.

EDIT: The two most common things that might accidentally get someone in trouble, would be magazine capacity limits and threaded barrels.

Is there a connection between gay marriage and concealed carry that I'm not seeing, or do you just think tit for tat revenge politics is the best way to run the country?

Florida's is a joke. You take a small course, they then tell you the exact answers for the test about 5 minutes before administering the most basic true false test you've ever met. One person in my class was told "You might want to look at number 4" when turning it in.

Next step is you go to a run range and fire precisely one shot and demonstrate "proficiency". In this case proficiency means not picking your teeth with the gun, shooting the ceiling, the instructor, yourself... If you can hit the target that's 3 feet away then that's great, but completely optional.

Then you mail your paperwork in with a check and your photo. That's it.

Welcome to Florida.

No, regulatory and insurance bodies are the devil and have never done anything but hold people back.

Are they FDIC insured

Because it's not like they can get away with it. I mean, there must be some sort of government regulatory body overseeing.... Oh wait.

Why would we need to associate with governments when they'll all crumble anyway?

Corey Feldman's 1993 audio files naming alleged sexual predators found by Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office

Sounds like the police dept. didn't want to find this evidence until the pressure got too heavy.

Edit: Thanks. It's always the most flippant, offhand comments that blow up. Also, I did misread. I thought it was the same department, but somehow, this seems even worse.

Poor Corey - first he was used and abused, then he was not taken seriously and treated like a laughing stock for years. The guy has taken a lot of abuse, I hope this vindication will finally help him to find some kind of happiness or peace and he can live a productive life henceforward.

"We always thought that drawer labeled 'Corey Feldman's 1993 audio files naming alleged sexual predators' was a joke!"

I heard him in an interview this past summer (before all these scandals came out) and he said Michael Jackson was the nicest most honorable person in the entertainment industry.

I'm starting to believe him and think that maybe these other fucks casted shade on Michael to keep all the attention out of their closed doors.

My favorite quotes from Taylor Swift's testimony:

Swift was asked by Mr Mueller’s lawyers if he had groped her more than once. “Other than grabbing my ass against my will, underneath my skirt, and refusing to let go, he did not otherwise touch me inappropriately.”

“I am not going to allow your client to make me feel like it is in any way my fault because it isn’t.”

“I’m being blamed for the unfortunate events of his life that are a product of his decisions. Not mine."

When Gabriel McFarland, David Mueller's attorney, tried to take more shots at her...

“Gabe, this is a photo of him with his hand up my skirt — with his hand on my ass,” she said. “You can ask me a million questions — I’m never going to say anything different. I never have said anything different.”

When McFarland asked the singer why the front of her skirt did not appear to be lifted in the phone, she said, “Because my ass is located in the back of my body.”

McFarland also noted that Swift was closer to Mueller’s girlfriend, Shannon Melcher, who also appears in the photo, than him. “Yes, she did not have her hand on my ass,” Swift replied.

And when asked if she criticized her bodyguards for not stepping in sooner...

[Swift] told Mr Mueller's lawyer she was “critical of [his] client sticking his hand under my skirt and grabbing my a**."

EDIT; correcting some embarrassing grammatical errors.

EDIT #2; Thanks, and I'm glad y'all enjoyed the comment! I pledge to pay it forward this week, since all humorous Swift quotes aside, harassment of any kind is a serious issue and takes a communal effort to tackle.

If you feel moved to throw in some dollars as well, every little bit counts. Find out where your local organizations are. See what's out there. Check out RAINN's website for support lines and suggestions on how to get involved. Sexual violence isn't always "just" a skeezy grope by a frosted tip DJ.

And finally, remember that children are perhaps the most vulnerable in all of this. Child and adolescent boys and girls make up a huge portion of abuse victims. The website above has some good talking points if you need help starting the conversation. Tell your daughters that their body is their own, and tell your sons that they can be victims too (and that speaking up doesn't make less manly.)

Edit #3; source for additional quotes

I still can't believe how many stories came out in a month's time. It changed culture forever. Good on all victims for having the courage to speak out. They deserve this honor.

This is the fourth time I've been named Times Person of the Year.

So that's what it looks like when your government actually looks out for you huh? Neat.

What a glorious day for Canada, and therefore of course, the world.

Not really. The regulatory body (CRTC) loves leaving loopholes so the telecoms can just raise prices elsewhere to compensate. They jacked up the cost of all their plans by like 5 bucks.

Same thing happened when the CRTC said 3 year locked in plans were too burdensome. The telecoms just reduced it to 2 years and cranked up the price.

Every single time.

I called up today and got my phone unlocked... for no other reason than because I could. =)
