I have not been on for a while. I have been pretty busy doing research. However, I plan to be back more often. Still on twitter everyday.

"Keith Herrera, a former member of the elite police task force, pleaded guilty to Ontivero-Artal’s charge and other similar allegations, stealing $40,000 from arrestees in 2005 alone. Other former members have also admitted to breaking into suspects’ homes and using coercion and false police reports to cover it up. The section was disbanded in 2007, and most of the officers were reassigned to other units, but the city payments to civilians harmed by the officers keep rolling in.
A Chicago Reporter analysis shows that 21 members of the section belong to a list of 140 police officers who were named in two or more misconduct-related lawsuits that led to city payments between January 2009 and November 2011. Their actions cost the city more than $1 million.
The police department’s failure to rein in the section was one of the major motivations behind the establishment of the Independent Police Review Authority in 2007, and activists have accused the department of turning a blind eye due to the race of most of the arrestees."

"Emmanuela Orlanda is a 15 year old girl who disappeared in 1983 in Rome. Two priests have just admitted that the teenager was abducted for Vatican sex parties, then her body was disposed of. One of the priests that spoke out is Father Gabriele Amorth (The Vatican’s leading exorcists who has performed over 70,000 exorcisms)"

"The Facklers are part of an often-hidden yet sizable number of retirement-age Americans drowning in an estimated $36 billion in student-loan debt for themselves and their children.
“The whole concept that student loan debt is a 20- or 30-something problem is just misplaced,” said William Brewer, president of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys.
The Facklers co-signed for loans to put their kids through college and now their children can’t afford the debt payments.
Despite having three college diplomas – a bachelor’s and two master’s – son Mark Fackler, a veteran, is barely able to pay the $600 monthly, interest only, payments on his loans. He now owes close to a quarter-million dollars."
