For years, women at Chicopee jail in MA were videotaped being stripped-searched - by men. Although a federal trial court in MA finally ruled this to be "plainly unconstitutional," neither it nor the US Supreme Court has ruled to limit strip-searches.

Barbara Webb knew that publicly displaying a lifestyle that violated Catholic doctrine was prohibited, so she asked for a leave of absence during her pregnancy. But that wasn't good enough for officials at Marian High School. They asked her to resign.

For a month the UK's Ecology building society fought to save a 250-year-old lime tree overhanging the society's grounds. But it took contractors only five minutes to destroy that 100-foot-tall tree - to pave the way for an Aldi super market.

Domestic abuse and domestic murder rates have dropped steeply nationwide. But not in South Carolina, which has the highest rate of male on female murders in the country - 300 in just one decade!

An ACLU investigation found that police in several NC cities were using spying devices that trick your cellphone into disclosing private information. But the police don't have to have a warrant to use them. This is a violation of our Constitutional rights

UK immigration detention centers have found a not so creative way to save on costs. They're exploiting detainees in a way that's reminiscent of slave labor - to save themselves millions of pounds.

Pituitary.org says that 1 in 5 people suffer from pituitary dysfunction - even more so if you have suffered any kind of jolt to the head, as have many war veterans. Screening for this condition will certainly save lives and quality of life for many vets.

Since release of the film, "Blackfish," there has been an increased worldwide outcry over the capture of Orcas. But that hasn't stopped Russia from taking two from the wild in the last weeks. Russia and every country must ban this cruelty now!

Society & Culture  (tags: Rikers jail complex, violence, juvenile offenders, brain injury, DOJ investigation, Dr. Wayne Gordon, Dr. Corrigan, prison reform, New York Department of Correction )

Rikers prison has a high number of juveniles who suffered brain injuries before being incarcerated. So why are the jail guards beating these kids in the head? Reform cannot come fast enough. Rikers must get rid of these guards - Now!
