    Gang Members Blast City, Police Policies
    Supt. Weis Has Threatened To Go After Gangs With Federal Law


    At a news conference organized by self-identified gang members Thursday morning, several speakers complained that police and city officials do not respect them, and that the only way to curb violence is to provide jobs and improve their community.

    The self-described current and former gang members held a news conference at the Columbus Park Refectory, at 5701 W. Jackson Blvd. on the city's West Side.

    "You say it's gangs, drugs and guns. We say we need jobs, opportunities and contracts," said Reginald Akeem Berry Sr., who identified himself as a former gang member. "That's the resolution."

    No one told them to live the lives they live. They chose that on there own, and the fact that they don't want to take responsibility for their choices is where the problem is found.

    Great moments in collegiate marketing: Drake University’s ‘D+’ campaign

    If you were going to spend tens of thousands of dollars on a higher education, would you want the end result to be known as a "D+" education?
    Probably not.
    And therein lies the problem some have with Drake University's new marketing campaign......

    San Francisco jail installs condom dispensers

    "And although sex among inmates technically is illegal, the Sheriff's Department went ahead and installed the 16 machines anyway - one for each jailhouse pod - paid for by a pair of small grants from UCSF and a Southern California nonprofit."

    "It may be controversial," Sheriff Michael Hennessey said, "but I think the larger health education message is important."

    I think they knew it wasn't a bomb and blew it up for fun. Hope the parent takes this opportunity to show their kid what happens when you don't put away your toys! (Wouldn't work w/ my kids, though. They'd be leaving toys out SO they would get blown up.)
