My attention spiked when I heard Melissa Harris-Perry interviewing one of the thousands of inappropriately touched or the tragic numbers about violence and women in university. And the military, then humans.

On Melissa Harris-Perry over at NSNBC, she gave phenomenal depth on the topic of rape a lot of attention.

An Oklahoman man accused of assaulting 8 or more women and girls, and he's still hunting. Getting kind of dangerous out there anyway.

Melissa Harris-Perry of highlighted details an alarming new case out of Oklahoma involving African American women and a cop accused of repeated sexual abuse.

Former Washington Post reporter beaten at Walmart while living in his truck

Raw Story covered this heinous situation, and it seems like a message/warning we should all receive if we aren't dedicated violence junkies or Gun Fondlers.

A former reporter who worked for both The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal said this week that he expected to be blind in one eye after being badly beaten in a Walmart parking lot.

Not a kerfluffle over a poppy stand on some mountain range in Afghanistan … an effing Walmart in Montana.

Les Gapay, 70, told the Missoulian that he had recently left his Section 8 housing in California to move back to Montana, but he was forced to live out of his truck while he was waiting for a senior apartment to open up.

When Gapay arrived in Billings on Sunday night, he said it was too late to find a campsite, so he decided to spend the night at the Mullan Road Super Walmart. After using the bathroom inside the store, two men approached him.

“These two guys came up to me and were obviously drunk,” he recalled. “They started saying they wanted to shake hands with me.” He told the men that he did not want to shake hands, then he said that one of the men “slugged me right in the chest.” As Gapay tried to call police, the man continued to hit him. He said that a third man arrived and began punching him in the eye.

I imagine there's someone to phrase the overview, with more punch; as I can't get past the assembling Posse in Missoula, seemingly played on one of those Sony/Black Box dealios in your Mom's basement.

Of course, it's a question best posed for Orthodox Utah.

It's a great article, at Addicting Info, catch it all here, but these excerpts are a little scary. The Church of the Latter Day Saint$ has a whole lotta' growing up to do before they are truly inclusive.

Utah’s attorney general said Wednesday he was considering an appeal of a U.S. federal judge’s ruling that declared part of Utah’s bigamy law unconstitutional and which sided with the star of reality television show “Sister Wives” and his four wives.

Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes’ office said in a statement that attorneys were reviewing the ruling and could file an appeal in coming weeks.

Now I followed Big Love rather religiously when it ran through HBO the first time, and as much crazy that went on on that program, truth is always stranger than fiction. Hands down.

U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups on Wednesday finalized a December ruling that struck down a section of the law that bars consenting adults from living together in a romantic arrangement and criminalizes their intimate sexual relationships.

And could you imagine the alimony figures? The Mormons are a 'plainer' people historically, but I think I'd wager that the Roman Catholic Church could go toe to toe for assets.

Five Children Murdered After They Were Deported Back To Honduras

So now the United States [and the budget conspiracy theorists] has gots some 'splainin' to do.

And by Hannity tonight, by O'Reilly tonight and after Rush Limpbaugh pulls a girl with terrible taste off him and lights a cigar at tea-time, we are going to see a boatload of blame offloaded on the president.

Starting to think Extreme Religionists, Open Gun Fondlers, Homicidal Abortion Opposition and the ones that are really engaged in a war on women should get their own little country.

ThinkProgress has details about this heart-wrenching cycle of poverty and no allocation of resources funded or enforced. Almost seems like a long, long way from Lady Liberty's message.

Between five and ten migrant children have been killed since February after the United States deported them back to Honduras, a morgue director told the Los Angeles Times. Lawmakers have yet to come up with best practices to deal with the waves of unaccompanied children apprehended by Border Patrol agents, but some politicians refute claims that children are fleeing violence and are opting instead to fund legislation that would fast-track their deportations.

San Pedro Sula morgue director Hector Hernandez told the Los Angeles Times that his morgue has taken in 42 dead children since February. According to an interview with relatives by the LA Times, one teenager was shot dead hours after getting deported. Last year, San Pedro Sula saw 187 killings for every 100,000 residents, a statistic that has given the city the gruesome distinction as the murder capital of the world.
