quote: A recent study found misbehaving white students are more likely to get medical help, while misbehaving black students are more likely to face punitive measures like arrest and suspension.

David Ramey, an assistant professor of sociology and criminology at Penn State and the author of the study published in Sociology of Education, analyzed a data set of more than 60,000 schools in more than 6,000 districts. He found schools with relatively larger minority and poor populations are more likely to implement criminalized disciplinary policies — such as suspensions, expulsions, police referrals, and arrests — and less likely to medicalize students by, for instance, connecting them to psychological or behavioral care.
Misbehaving white students get medical help. Unruly black students get suspended.

"She continued to yell and curse at the officers. He said officers tried to calm Massion down, but she spit at them."

And if she was black, they would have killed her for it.

From Charleston to Chattanooga to Lafayette, senseless killings by deranged gunmen have dominated the news—but how many mass shootings have occurred in 2015? And how do you define "mass shooting," anyway?

Boise has a rather good police department compared to many in this country....The previous chief made it a point to bring down the rate of police overreactions, and so far the new chief seems to be following in the same direction.  There is a facebook page called Boise Cop Watch, but  the stories about problems for the last two months at least deal with out of state or occasionally nearby communities, not Boise...

We're sure the Confederate flag-humpers are just expressing their 'Southern heritage' when placing their hate flags at the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolence and at the Ebenezer Church in Atlanta. When the perpetrators are caught by the authorities, they can racesplain that to us.
