Inmate Beaten For Passing Gas?

Let fart be free! Well, so they say, until you’re in jail. According to the Jamaica Star, my occasional news source, a man was allegedly beaten for passing gas in lock up by three other inmates. So, I guess people can’t even fart in peace anymore either, no?

In defense to this accusation, one of the men stated that he was cooking porridge (people cook in jail now?) when the assaulted farted in the cell. Surely that would piss anybody off. Continue reading “Inmate Beaten For Passing Gas?”

Apparently, a 17 year old was being sexually abused by her stepfather and her mother did nothing about it even though she told her. So the story starts out like this, the teen says she’s dating a 27 year old whom her stepfather doesn’t like (jeez I wonder why). On two occasions while she was at home alone with her stepfather, he raped her then threatened her not to tell anyone. It was after the second assault that she finally developed the strength to tell her mother, but unfortunately Continue reading “For Thought: 17 year old abused by stepfather”
