> Jessica says she was continually raped years ago by her uncle, her mother's half-brother. Despite the evidence, including a DNA test, he was never convicted.
> She was impregnated 4 times as a result. At 14, she miscarried. At 16, she had a baby boy. At 18, she had her third child. He later died due to a disease common in cases of incest. At 19, she had her youngest son.
> "I literally just felt like I didn't have any options," she said. In another interview, Jessica told The Washington Post she was forced by her family to marry her rapist. That marriage was later deemed illegal by a court due to a "familial relationship."
> The man that raped Jessica still has visitation rights to her two children. The judge told Jessica she'd have to spend 48 hours in jail for each visit she denied her rapist.
Gotta love places that just fucking hate woman this much
It's completely unbelievable this is a story from a first world country
> "We are one of two states in the Union that do not have a law that terminates the rights of a rapist," said Rep. Juandalynn Givan (D) Jefferson County.
Thank zeus it's "only" two states, at least, I guess, sort of.
Oh, and then while reading that I came across this:
> In a since-deleted post on Facebook, Mark Chambers, who is mayor of Carbon Hill, Alabama, said killing off minority groups would be necessary in a coming “revolution”.
> This was enflamed further when one of Mr Chambers’ friends on the site responded, saying: “Society is giving the minority more rights than the majority.
> Mr Chambers has been its mayor since 2004 in the town in the north west of Alabama. Despite Carbon Hill having just 2,000 residents, the public post attracted a much wider backlash.
> “Although I believe my comment was taken out of context and was not targeting the LGTBQ community, I know that it was wrong to say anyone should be killed.
"out of contexT"? Go fuck yourself.
Like seriously, is there something in the water in Alabama?
> “I am truly sorry that I have embarrassed our city, I love this city and while in office I have done everything in my power to make this a better place for our families.”
Assuming those families are made up of straight cis white people.
> Mr Chambers was reportedly asked to resign by at least one member of a subsequent town council meeting. However, other city leaders said they supported the mayor, who hired the town’s first black police chief and raised budgets in his time in office.
Oh good, he hired a black police chief, that totally cancels out calling for minorities to all be killed.
NOT RACIST GUYS. HE HIRED A BLACK MAN.
 
@Wipqozn well as you said, he was saying that LGBT+ and Abortion Rights Campaigners should be killed, that's got nothing to do with race

This is much better than hearing that UAW has failed in TN 800something-700something
VW played illegally there but they'll drag their feet on any proceedings related to that and nothing will happen

@TimStone As you should, because yeah, words can't describe the wtfness of it.
 
5:21 PM
Remember when we were all "It's almost like japanese interment camps!"
Well apparently Trump admin heard that and thought "That's a pretty good idea!"
although to be fair:
> Using military bases in this way is not new. In 2014, the Obama Administration placed around 7,700 migrant children on bases in Texas, California and Oklahoma, including Fort Sill. The temporary shelters were shuttered after four months. Last year, the government evaluated several military bases to shelter migrants, but ultimately decided not to use the facilities.
 
anyone who thinks the Pentagon doing a cyberwar would be stupid is russian
Which is why I think it's stupid
