    if i as a retail worker have to work with a dozen cameras pointed at me to deter me from stealing $10, cops should have to work with a camera pointed at them to deter them from arbitrarily maiming and killing people

    how many times do doctors need to confirm that lack of sleep is physically and emotionally harming high school students because of how early they have to be up before someone will give enough of a shit about these kids’ health to actually change something

    LA County is considering making homelessness a parole violation and if that isn’t the most fucked up clear proof that the prison system is about getting poor, “unsavory” people out of sight out of mind then I don’t know what is.

    To get cash to her son, Pat used to purchase a money order at the post office for $1.25 and mail it to the prison, for a total cost of less than $2. But in March of last year, the Virginia Department of Corrections informed her that JPay Inc., a private company in Florida, would begin handling all deposits into inmates’ accounts.

    Sending a money order through JPay takes too long, so Taylor started using her debit card to get him funds instead. To send Eddie $50, Taylor must pay $6.95 to JPay. Depending on how much she can afford to send, the fee can be as high as 35 percent. In other states, JPay’s fees approach 45 percent.

    After the fee, the state takes out another 15 percent of her money for court fees and a mandatory savings account, which Eddie will receive upon his release in 2021, minus the interest, which goes to the Department of Corrections.

    Eddie needs money to pay for basic needs like toothpaste, visits to the doctor and winter clothes. In some states families of inmates pay for toilet paper, electricity, even room and board, as governments increasingly shift the costs of imprisonment from taxpayers to the families of inmates.

    “To give him $50, I have to send $70 off my card,” says Taylor, who moved to a smaller apartment on the outskirts of Johnson City in part because of the rising cost of supporting Eddie. “They’re punishing the families, not the inmates.”

    I left Doctor Who because I could not get along with the senior people. I left because of politics. I did not see eye-to-eye with them. I didn’t agree with the way things were being run. I didn’t like the culture that had grown up, around the series. So I left, I felt, over a principle.

    I thought to remain, which would have made me a lot of money and given me huge visibility, the price I would have had to pay was to eat a lot of shit. I’m not being funny about that. I didn’t want to do that and it comes to the art of it, in a way. I feel that if you run your career and– we are vulnerable as actors and we are constantly humiliating ourselves auditioning. But if you allow that to go on, on a grand scale you will lose whatever it is about you and it will be present in your work.

    If you allow your desire to be successful and visible and financially secure – if you allow that to make you throw shades on your parents, on your upbringing, then you’re knackered. You’ve got to keep something back, for yourself, because it’ll be present in your work. A purity or an idealism is essential or you’ll become– you’ve got to have standards, no matter how hard work that is. So it makes it a hard road, really.

    You know, it’s easy to find a job when you’ve got no morals, you’ve got nothing to be compromised, you can go, ‘Yeah, yeah. That doesn’t matter. That director can bully that prop man and I won’t say anything about it’. But then when that director comes to you and says ‘I think you should play it like this’ you’ve surely got to go ‘How can I respect you, when you behave like that?’

    So, that’s why I left. My face didn’t fit and I’m sure they were glad to see the back of me. The important thing is that I succeeded. It was a great part. I loved playing him. I loved connecting with that audience. Because I’ve always acted for adults and then suddenly you’re acting for children, who are far more tasteful; they will not be bullshitted. It’s either good, or it’s bad. They don’t schmooze at after-show parties, with cocktails.

    This is what happened to us last night in Shaw. The police were violating our rights all night. We were peaceful. Some of our folks were beaten, one officer stood in front of another to block us from seeing him shoving his baton into a protesters abdomen.

    One of our live streamers was sprayed by police for capturing them beating on protesters. Silly me, I thought we would be safe last night because we had legal observers with us from the National Lawyers Guild. NOPE, they got sprayed and arrested too. 17 of our protesters were arrested in total.

    The screams, the beatings, the media running away, the tears, us yelling trying to find each other, the sound of them banging their batons on the ground to intimidate us … I will never forget last night. I have not slept since Friday, most of us are still trying to process what happened.

    This is just a small piece of what we experienced last night. Ferguson protesters have been living this nightmare every day for the last 65 days, think about that. #Shaw #Ferguson #FergusonOctober

    My heart goes out to the girls of Nashville Junior Roller Derby at this time. On October 2nd skater Ruby Blackman (Black Sabbatha) passed away.
    The link below will take you to a page where you can donate to a funeral and memorial fund. Even if you’re unable to donate, please keep her family in…

    If you’re looking to send things to Ferguson protesters, send them here:

    P.O. Box 5277 

    St. Louis MO 63115

    **Include a return address and a full name**

    Some of the things they need: hats, gloves, snacks, scarves, coats/jackets, warm socks, etc. It’s only getting colder in STL so think warm!
