Cop Punches Woman In Los Angeles In Scene Caught On Tape – HuffPost

The Political Agitator Response: Damn what was all of this about? What did she do and who is she? But was all of that necessary? Damn my ignant ass just don’t get it. A grown ass man a highway patrol has to go to these extremes to lock up a woman that was not resisting arrest, what is wrong with this picture?

A California Highway Patrol officer was caught on tape punching a woman on the side of a Los Angeles highway on Tuesday.

The video posted on YouTube shows the cop pursuing the woman on foot past an I-10 on-ramp. Those recording it can be heard laughing at first. (Warning: video contains NSFW language).

But the laughs quickly subside as the cop grabs the woman, who is either pulled down or falls to the ground, and then repeatedly punches her.

CHP says the officer asked the woman to stop, but she refused and continued to walk away from him. (Source: Read more)

Video released in arrest of ASU professor – AZ Daily

The Political Agitator Response: Damn I must have missed something because this makes no damn sense. I am still trying to figure out what are they talking about that she was waking in the middle of the street? So obviously she had not been drinking because I don’t see where she was drunk or doing anything illegal. So can somebody help my ignant ass out because these damn police officers appears to have some type of motive here that I just can’t comprehend. So what video did the ASU view because obviously not the one that I just watched. SMDH!

TEMPE, Ariz. — An Arizona State University professor who was arrested by campus police last month is claiming self-defense, and the incident is getting a whole lot more attention now that 3TV has obtained video of it.

“The reason I’m talking to you right now is because you are walking in the middle of the street,” Officer Stewart Ferrin said to ASU professor Dr. Ersula Ore after stopping her near campus. She was crossing College Avenue, just south of Fifth Street. (Source: Read more)

Yik Yak, other anonymous social media apps pose problems for schools – Charlotte Observer

Cyberbullies across the country are using Yik Yak and other anonymous apps, which has triggered concerns for schools about how students use social media.

Yik Yak, an app which allows users to write 200-character posts that can be read by people within 1.5 miles, is part of the social media cyberbullying phenomena, which has changed how teenagers experience bullying.

A generation ago, most bullied students could escape at home or with peers.

However, unlike words scribbled on a bathroom stall or notes slipped in someone’s locker, social media posts can go viral, follow students home and reach a larger audience. And as schools struggle to keep pace with teens who simply download the newest app, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools is getting creative with how to curb cyberbullying. (Source: Read more)

States That Raised Their Minimum Wages Are Experiencing Faster Job Growth – Portside

The Political Agitator Response: Oh hell no they don’t want to do that because they want to hold people right where they are. Some folks don’t want other folks to live a good life and want them to work, go to church and talk about dying and going to heaven. But damn what about while here on earth? Now that’s what up for me living now and hell with waiting til I die that is a given. Folks ya’ll better wake the hell up and make some demands while here on earth.

Think a higher minimum wage is a job killer? Think again: The states that raised their minimum wages on January 1 have seen higher employment growth since then than the states that kept theirs at the same rate.

The minimum wage went up in 13 states — Arizona, Connecticut, Colorado, Florida, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington — either thanks to automatic increases in line with inflation or new legislation, as Ben Wolcott reports in his analysis at the Center for Economic and Policy Research. The average change in employment for those states over the first five months of the year as compared with the last five of 2013 is .99 percent, while the average for all remaining states is .68 percent.
