Signal Boosting: The new issue of Stone Telling is live!
Signal Boosting: Look at this nifty story calendar!
An officer has been charged with second degree murder for his role in beating schizophrenic homeless man Kelly Thomas to death (other officers received lesser charges).
If all the witness statements, the bus camera footage and cellphone videos weren’t enough, the officer recorded the event on audio. He says: “See my fists? They are getting ready to fuck you up.” So what do they do to people when theyaren’t being recorded? And what can the law possibly do to these officers that will feel like justice, or even lessons learned?
Thomas cried out during the beating, “I can’t breathe,” “I’m sorry, dude,” and “Dad, help me.” The beating lasted nearly 10 minutes and, by the time Cicinelli hit Thomas in the face with his Taser, Thomas was making no sounds.
He was taken off life support five days later.

The title of this post is books by men who like big families…
I think the point about big families being additional stress on
parents (and often moms) is not lost on me. Being able to control our
fertility has been one of the greatest advances for women.
