Do what moves you. Say what you feel. Don't be afraid to be who you are based on some notion of what is acceptable behavior and what's not.

A man who spent 22 long months in solitary confinement in a New Mexico jail, neglected to the point where he was forced to pull out his own tooth because he said he wasn’t allowed to see a dentist, will receive $15.5 million for the ordeal.
Read the complete story.

TW: it just gets more horrific, but do read on. All over a DUI and (not)stolen vehicle. And he’s surely not the only one.

Its amazing how no one is ever held accountable. They just want to throw some money at him and pretend in never happened. Money doesn’t get back his lost time and sanity. Fuck the system.

America is Turning Into a Prison

While I personally do not hold love for this country (mainly due to our corrupt and bullshit system) and I recognize that the word “terrorist” has been a term used to twists the minds of the many, this article has a lot of very interesting information that you should read up on.

"If you live in the United States of America, you live in a giant prison where liberty and freedom are slowly being strangled to death.  In this country, the control freaks that run things are obsessed with watching, tracking, monitoring and recording virtually everything that we do.  Nothing is private anymore.  Everything that you do on the Internet is being monitored.  All of your phone calls are being monitored.  In fact, if law enforcement authorities suspect that you have done something wrong, they will use your cell phone microphone to listen to you even when you think your cell phone is turned off.  In many areas of the country, when you get into your car automated license plate readers track you wherever you go, and in many major cities when you are walking on the streets a vast network of security cameras and "smart street lights" are constantly watching you and listening to whatever you say.  The TSA is setting up "internal checkpoints" all over the nation, Homeland Security is encouraging all of us to report any "suspicious activity" that our neighbors are involved in and the federal government is rapidly developing "pre-crime" technology that will flag us as "potential terrorists" if we display any signs of nervousness.  If you are flagged as a "potential terrorist", the U.S. military can arrest you and detain you for the rest of your life without ever having to charge you with anything.  Yes, the United States of America is rapidly being turned into a "Big Brother" prison grid, and most Americans are happily going along with it."

This is disgusting. America’s court system, just one more thing I despise about this country.
