Levine Park in Sealy


Government should proceed with caution about arming children. Let's leave something for the parents to decide.

Too bad we can't pass a law making people like Rush Limbaugh and Al Sharpton get real, regular jobs.  I don't think they add much to the value of America doing what they do.

Conflicted. I'm against America torturing people. Trump is in favor of it, and as you know is a very convincing man.  He's about to make me change my mind ...as I am beginning to think it might be ok to torture HIM.


I've just about run my course on shooting models and don't think I will be scheduling anymore new model shoots, though I will try to honor prior commitments. .  Searching for new subjects to photograph. I am creatively bankrupt.

Saudi Arabia Sentences Atheist To 10 Years In Prison and 2000 Lashes For Speaking About His Values On Twitter

by jonathanturley
125px-Coat_of_arms_of_Saudi_Arabia.svgTwitter LogoSaudi Arabia is again reminding the world of the medieval demands of its religious, Sharia legal system. Recently, Saudi Arabia enacted a law making atheism a form of terrorism. It was an act that reaffirmed the Kingdom as one of the most oppressive government's in terms of free speech and free exercise of religion. The law was particularly ironic since Saudi Arabia and its extreme Wahhabi brand of Islam has been a major contributor to Islamic extremist and terrorism around the world. However, it is atheism that the Kingdom believes is the source of terrorism. Making good on that threat, a Saudi court has sentenced an atheist to 10 years in prison and 2,000 lashes for expressing his views on Twitter posts.

Three 12-Year-Girls Criminally Charged After Spiking Teacher’s Soda With Red Pepper

by jonathanturley
DMSLogoSlideShowI have long been critical of the criminalization of American society, particularly at our schools We have seen school pranks charged as crimes in high school (and here). Now three 12-year-old girls at Deltona Middle School in Volusia County in Florida have been charged for the prank of putting pepper in the soft drink of their teacher. The question is why these cases (which used to be handled as a disciplinary matter for the school) had to be handed over to the police and prosecutors. There are heavy penalties that can be meted out like barring the student from graduation.

by jonathanturley
19368667-mmmainkim-bradfordWe deal with so many truly horrible crimes on this blog that it is often difficult to be truly shocked by the actions of some felons. However, if the allegations are proven, Kimberly Bradford, 41, may be a true stand out. Bradford is accused of stealing money from Christmas cards sent to Sa'fyre Terry, the badly burned 8-year-old survivor of a 2013 arson. Volunteers were used to sort through the outpouring of cards and gifts for Sa'fyre sent to "Safyre's Angels." As one of those "angels", Bradford was one of a number of volunteers suspected of pocketing money and gift cards.
