Adult who, at 17, sexually assaulted child is sentenced to juvenile facility

Source: LA TIMES

The case of Hannah Tubbs, who has admitted sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl in 2014 in the bathroom of a Denny's restaurant in Palmdale, has thrown a spotlight on Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. George Gascn's refusal to seek the transfer of juvenile defendants to adult court. Gascn has argued that the brains of juveniles aren't fully developed and that the proper setting to rehabilitate people who commit crimes while underage is a juvenile treatment facility.

How does that make sense... minors are separated from the adult population and often housed at entirely different facilities than adults specifically to ensure they are not put into the population with adults. I believe this is even done with minors who are charged and convicted as adults (but could be wrong on that one--edit to clarify: They're incarcerated within adult jails/prisons, but separated from interaction with general population). She should be placed with the adults in adult jail.

7 years after the crime, the victim is still in therapy and did not attend the case, the rapist piece of shit gets 2 years. 2 years for ruining someone's life is a joke.

i call bs on this, unnamed sources and coming from CNN of all places.

however, if true, then i'm beginning to suspect ukraine leadership is in on this with russia to create a distraction from the south china sea.

we actually have more firepower now in the south china sea with those ships in guam

Amazon payed $50.000 to have anti union courses on public schools


Seriously, everyone needs to read this article. This course includes:

" ( one ) unit focuses on “Worker Motivation.” One team activity prompts students to “Brainstorm ways you could motivate your employees other than large bonuses and high salaries.” Another question asks them “What is Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, and how do these needs relate to employee motivation?” (Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is a concept in psychology that, broadly speaking, says people will do what they have to do to survive before working to improve their physical and mental well-being**.**)

This is disgusting! Schools are halfway to being nothing more than serf-labor work indoctrination camps. This is in NO WAY comparable to a true vocational track, where students who want to train in hands-on skilled trades can get a head start on that path.

How was this even approved?!

It’s a test. If you actually write the phrase out, they shoot you on the spot.
Also it is refreshing to see similar idioms in different languages. In Chinese, it would be "fed by dog mother"

Source: reuters

The European Union has drawn up plans to label some natural gas and nuclear energy projects as "green" investments after a year-long battle between governments over which investments are truly climate-friendly.

i believe this is a good thing, it is time to spend money to upgrade to current technology that is more clean rather than going back to coal plant or dangerous old nuclear plants that is still using 20 years old tech
