In further efforts to increase public understanding and acceptance of Satanism, the Satanic Temple plans to enter the adopt-a-highway program in New York City where they will maintain voluntary beautification of a stretch of public highway for at least 2 years by way of litter cleanup and landscaping.
The adoption and 2 year clean-up effort will cost an estimated $10,000 for which the Satanic Temple is accepting donations through the popular crowd-source funding site, indiegogo.com. read more
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (CN) - Texas jailers ran a "rape camp" where they "repeatedly raped and humiliated female inmates," and forced them to masturbate and sodomize male guards, and one another, two women claim in court.
J.A.S. and J.M.N. sued Live Oak County and its former jailers Vincent Aguilar, Israel Charles Jr. and Jaime E. Smith, in Federal Court.
All three guards were arrested in August 2010 and charged with sexual assault, the Beeville Bee-Picayune reported at the time. The newspaper did not identify the victims.
Nine owners and managers of 7-Eleven stores across Long Island and in Virginia were charged on Monday in a scheme to exploit immigrants from Pakistan and the Philippines, in part by paying them using the stolen Social Security numbers of a child and three dead people while stealing most of their wages.
Most of the defendants were arrested early Monday as federal authorities raided 14 franchise stores. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents were executing search warrants at more than 40 other stores across the country suspected of similar infractions, authorities said at a news conference in Brooklyn. read more
Yet another hacker is being jacked. This time, it's Deric Lostutter, who led a subgroup of the hacktivist collective Anonymous that helped bring the Steubenville, Ohio rape scandal to light. In return, Lostutter has been raided by the FBI and faces charges of Steubenville-related hacking and identity theft that could result in him spending ten years in prison five times as long as the convicted rapists. To recap, Steubenville is where Trent Mays and Ma'lik Richmond, two of the Big Red High School football team's star players, carted a drunk, unconscious, and possibly drugged teenager from party to party, raping her several times along the way last August. Their buddies, who filmed the attack on their phones, used a variety of social media platforms to post pictures, videos, and comments about the assault hours later. They referred to themselves as the "Rape Crew".
Scientific American: When fish swim in waters tainted with antidepressant drugs, they become anxious, anti-social and sometimes even homicidal. New research has found that the pharmaceuticals, which are frequently showing up in U.S. streams, can alter genes responsible for building fish brains and controlling their behavior. Male minnows exposed to a small dose of the drug in laboratories ignored females. They spent more time under a tile, so their reproduction decreased and they took more time capturing prey, according to Rebecca Klaper, a professor of freshwater sciences who spoke about her findings at a Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry conference last fall. read more
