Christian school suspends teacher after someone else posts photos of her on revenge porn site

Why is the first step always to punish the victim? Christian school suspends teacher after photo appears on ‘revenge porn’ website | The Raw Story
A female teacher at Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy in Ohio has been placed on administrative leave after school officials found a nude photograph of her on a “revenge porn” site. “Revenge porn” sites publish photographs stolen by hackers or posted by malicious ex-boyfriends and ex-girlfriends, along with identifying information about the person. In this case, the photograph of the teacher — who is not named — was posted on the site on November 23, the day before she reported her iPhone stolen. A spokesman from the schoool said “we have an employee who appears in some photos that have been compromised and made digitally available,” but he did not indicate how the photographs were first discovered, or whether any of her students had seen them. A parent of one of her students told WCPO that while “the woman is already a victim,” because this is “a Christian school, parents are upset that a teacher is even taking naked pictures and sending them to people — and her students are old enough to get online and Google their teacher’s name and the photos come up.”

Shia LaBeouf apologizes for plagiarism by plagiarizing his apology

One comes away with the feeling that Shia LaBeouf is either deeply lazy or just incredibly dumb. Shia LaBeouf May Have Plagiarized His Apology for Plagiarism | Underwire | Wired.com
Last night on Twitter, LaBeouf wrote the following: Copying isn’t particularly creative work. Being inspired by someone else’s idea to produce something new and different IS creative work. — Shia LaBeouf (@thecampaignbook) December 17, 2013 In my excitement and naivete as an amateur filmmaker, I got lost in the creative process and neglected to follow proper accreditation — Shia LaBeouf (@thecampaignbook) December 17, 2013 . . . And now, let’s look at what “Lili,” a user on Yahoo! Answers, had to say about plagiarism four years ago. “Merely copying isn’t particularly creative work, though it’s useful as training and practice,” she wrote. “Being inspired by someone else’s idea to produce something new and different IS creative work, and it may even revolutionalize the ‘stolen’ concept.”

Responsible gun owner pulls firearm on woman taking too long to park in handicapped spot

He doesn't explicitly state that he was terrified when a woman who was also black approached his car, but it's implied. Because there is nothing scarier than a soccer mom with four kids, right? How could anyone not draw down on her? No charges after man pulls gun on ‘b*tch’ with disabled kid over Walmart parking delay | The Raw Story
Police in Colorado say that an Aurora man will not be charged after he admitted pulling his gun on a woman with four children — including a disabled child — because she was taking too long to park her car. Shakia Bush told KMGH-TV that she was waiting for a handicap parking space at a local Walmart recently and a man behind her started honking his horn. When she got out to tell him to go around because she was waiting for the handicap space, she said that he started yelling obscenities and pulled out a gun. “He showed it to me in the air, then held it to his chest and said, ‘B****, I have a gun. I will shoot your a**,’” she recalled. “My 10-year old son was saying ‘Mommy, he’s going to shoot you. I don’t want him to shoot you.’” Bush said that she screamed that the man was “pulling a gun on a woman” before writing down his license plate number and calling 911. “That’s when he got back into his car and took off,” she said. Police identified the suspect as Justin West. But in an interview, he insisted that he had pulled the gun because he thought “people were going to jump out and attack him.” According to his version of events, he told Bush, “I have a gun and will defend myself.” “What was he defending himself from?” Bush wondered. “A mom and four kids? He was angry over a traffic incident. He hopped out of his car first and started yelling and screaming at me.”
