Professors in Poverty • BRAVE NEW FILMS

When my son started kindergarten, most teachers qualified for food stamps because the pay was so low. That changed for the better (although there is still lots of room for improvement). Now he is in college, and his professors are working for two or three different colleges and still are not able to make ends meet. I want to know where all the money that is paid into tuition goes! A credit hour costs nearly three times what it did ten years ago and the pay rate for adjunct professors is down by half.

Instead of Shooting a Dog that Just Bit Him, This Cop Soothed It and Set the Bar for Cops Nationwide


Round Rock, TX — According to an unofficial count done by Ozymandias Media, an independent research group, a dog is shot by law enforcement every 98 minutes. (snip)

When Frederick knocked at the door, Wightman’s 4-year-old son ran to answer it. That’s when Jillaroo went into protective mode.

“The dog immediately jumped between him and the officer, and that’s when it was a little bit nerve-racking, because I was watching the dog bite him,” Wightman said.

After controversy arose in May of last year, when a Round Rock cop shot and killed a Rottweiler named Bullet inside a home, the department surprisingly took proactive measures.

After Bullet’s tragic puppycide, all Round Rock police officers were put through a mandatory eight-hour training period with an experienced dog trainer to learn how to handle situations involving aggressive animals, according to KVUE.

Feds Raid Indian Reservation To Destroy Industrial Hemp Crops

Sovereign lands must mean something totally different than what an objective understanding of those words would suggest...



Adorned in tactical gear and armed with AR-15s, the drug warriors focused their efforts along County Road M – west of Suring in Menominee County – and utilized front-end loaders and dump trucks to seize over 30,000 plants.

According to the DEA, it was serving a search warrant granted by a federal judge in Green Bay to raid a home, outbuilding, and about 20 acres of tribal land in the County.

In a statement, Besaw said growing the crop “was intended to comply with Congress’s actions in [the] 2014 Farm Bill which recognized a distinction between marijuana and industrial hemp that created an exception to the Controlled Substance Act to allow for growth, cultivation and the study of industrial hemp in certain circumstances.”

Besaw maintains that the Tribe “offered to take any differences in the interpretation of the farm bill to federal court,” and even offered to “destroy certain strains of the industrial hemp crop that [the feds] had identified as problematic,” but said the “offers by the Tribe were rejected in favor of the aggressive unilateral action.”
