Ugh, annoyed. I found a fishy-as-hell ad on CL (here) more than a week ago and shared it with a friend. She rang her state's police force, who told her to call the Australian Crime Commission. Only open during business hours. Whatev.

She rings back, and is told "oh, don't you worry your pretty little head."

Um.. hello? This screams human trafficking or something else shady.

Gah. I'm calling tomorrow, as.. yay! they're taking me seriously!

AND redirected. This office is closed. :rolleyes:

I almost didn't want to put this here because there is something way super wrong with this guy, but fuck him:

Deranged Attorney General Harassing 'Radical Gay' Student Body President

The webcam voyeur story that's linked up at the top right now is also pretty horrific.

Which raises the question of how he got to be a Deputy Attorney General...
Am I the only one who was getting an Asperger-y vibe from him?

I was totally reminded of Chris-chan while watching that...

I didn't get Asperger-y, more well voiced enough in legalities to know exactly what he could and couldn't say to avoid losing his job. He had a script he had to stick to in order to keep up the pretense that he was doing nothing wrong and he would not waver from it.

It would set an ugly precedent to fire the guy for something he does in his off-time, but can a case be made for harassment/stalking?

No you're not. I don't think that's what's really wrong with him, but he definitely has that affect and he doesn't seem to predict well how people will perceive what he's doing.

So yeah, I would guess so, but it's not why he's such a ridiculous, insane asshole.

Hopefully he ends up paying most of his money for stalking and libeling up the ass to the gay student.

Edit to add: I got the closeted gay who has spent time mentally self flagellating himself for it and has found a target to dump his hatred onto in a way that makes himself out to be the goodguy martyre vibe from him and let's throw in some OCPD for the required armchair psych session.

For most jobs, I would agree. However, there's an excellent case to be made that he's violating the Michigan Bar's ethics code. The AG just doesn't want to make such a case, for whatever reason. Maybe somebody at the state bar's ethics panel will.

ARG. This is one of those things that I can spend more than two minutes hating.

Your sister has some legal options, and there may be a clinic or legal aid hotline that she can call in your state to learn what the best path might be. She might also contact the state labor agency, but I am not sure how comprehensive their advice might be.

Well, they may eventually put money in the account, but it's been more than a week (and the checks were sent out 2 weeks late), and the bank says money still isn't there. Quite a few people are looking into it at this point.

Oh, definitely.

Anyone want to guess how quickly he'd have been fired if O'Donnell was a woman?

She mentions Billy Lucas . Students say he had been bullied and harassed for years, yet here's what Billy's principal had to say
Quote:
“We were not aware of that situation. Sometimes [Billy Lucas] created that atmosphere around him. Kind of like a little tornado because he went around doing things that made dust fly, I guess,” said Greensburg Principal Phil Chapple.

Medical experiments on prisoners and mentally ill patients by US. The kicker is that it wasn't even on US citizens this time around, but in Guatemala.

Remain calm. It's okay. This American Family Association shithead says the fire department did the right and Christian thing by letting that house burn. That's redundant, of course, because right=Christian and vicey versy.

You'll have to highlight that blog post if you really want to read it, cuz the AFA is so focused on telling us what's the right/Christian thing they haven't noticed that black text on a black background isn't the best of ideas.
