Michael Brown's stepfather sorry for outburst - 20 views

  •  
    (CNN) -- Michael Brown's stepfather says he's sorry for his emotional outburst to demonstrators after learning a police officer wouldn't be indicted in the teen's death. But he says he's unfairly taking heat for the rioting that followed.

    While i disagree with everything that is going on in Ferguson, I think it is very nice that he apologized, i really understand his anger not because of the courts decision but just the main fact him stepson is dead. I can't say i could react any other way.
  •  
    I think that if Michael Brown's stepfather could say that he's sorry for saying those things because he cares a lot about Ferguson that he doesn't want it to go down in flames then they could stop having this uncivilized riots it won't do anything except get yourselves in trouble.
  •  
    I understand the reasoning behind his apology, and why he shouldn't have acted the way he did. I don't think anybody would've acted any different if their stepson had died. Now granted they did take things a little too far, but it was only out of anger and "raw emotion" as Louis Head stated.
  •  
    He shouldn't have said what he did, even though he was emotional for the decision about the indictment of officer Wilson, and he realizes that, but people do things on their own he didn't physically make them set fires. So, he shouldn't be blamed for what others did.
  •  
    I think the apology was appropriate as well as needed. I believe in him coming out and saying this will be the beginning of the decrease in Ferguson.
  •  
    The emotional outburst is understandable, but to have such an outburst that it can be threatening, is too far. I'm glad he apologized, but he should of never said those threats in the first place.
  •  
    I think that is was good to apologize. Everyone does speak out of anger and in this situation I'm sure a lot of people are speaking out of anger. Almost everyone is acting out of anger right now.

Photos show scale of North Korea's repressive prison camps -- Amnesty - 0 views

    North Korea's prison camps are wrong. Now with the pictures of the camps and all the witnesses they have and evidence, I would think that would be enough for the United Nations to do something about it.

Free condoms for your 12-year-old? California health council can help - 3 views

  •  
    (CNN) -- With just a few clicks of a mouse, kids as young as 12 can have free condoms delivered to their doors in California. And that idea is garnering mixed reactions from Californians.

    Better be safe than sorry.
  •  
    i think that 12 year olds should not be able to buy condoms there should be a certain age limit.
  •  
    i think you should be able to get condoms no matter how old you are. if you are haveing sex you should be safe.
  •  
    Safe sex is the best way to go. If your thinking about sex at any age, you should make sure you have condoms no mater what.
  •  
    Perhaps parents, guardians/ and or teachers should encourage kids not to make those choices until they are old enough to handle the consequences (aka, wait until their married. You wont have to deal with pregnancies or emotional stress)
  •  
    No one that young needs to engage in sex but if they do they need protection and not have many partners it seems to me that people are having to many partners.
  •  
    I dont think anyone that young needs to have sex they should be getting a free pack of craynos not condoms
  •  
    i dont think they should be able to but yes i do belive that they do need to learn about pertection ... but no they dont need them
  •  
    I agree with Hannah, they should not be getting condoms at 12 that is way too young to even be thinking about doing that kind of stuff. But I also agree with Spencer, they should be taught about protection that way when the time comes MANY years later, they know what the right thing to do is.

Why Wal-Mart workers are striking on Black Friday - 0 views

  •  
    "Jeff Landry, an employee in Sapulpa, Okla., plans to join the protest. He works from 4 to 9 p.m. after attending school all day. When he was scheduled for a shift during class, Landry complained. He says his managers responded by cutting his hours from 40 to below 30 a week.
    This meant that Landry was no longer eligible for health care, since Wal-Mart requires workers to work an average of 30 hours per week to get benefits.
    "They tried all these tactics to get rid of me," he said."

    Wow this is crazy! I would quit!
  •  
    Yeah it sounds crazy!
  •  
    protesting is a legal rght given to any united states citizen as long as they do it legally
  •  
    I agree partially with what the workers are striking for because Walmart is a crazy place every single day, especially around the holiday season. However, I do not think they need to demand better pay or more stable hours. Their average pay is 5 whole dollars above federal minimum wage, and there are plenty of people out there who work a different job with a lot more hours at irregular times for minimum wage and no benefits. Why should Walmart be any different? I feel as if they are striking for something they will not get.
  •  
    protesting is legal only if its non-violent so I think the had a right to go on strike.
  •  
    Civil Disobedience!

Protestors call on Obama to reject Keystone XL pipeline - 0 views

  •  
    Less than two weeks after Barack Obama won his re-election campaign, protesters gathered Sunday to call on the president and his administration to reject the proposed Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, and to act on climate change.

    I believe that it is totally okay for these people to protest. They are protesting based upon their beliefs and feelings, so they have a right to protest. They feel that expansion in the fossil fuel is going to impact our climate. This is a perfect example of where people are lobbying the Obama Administration through peaceful protest to effect a desired result and outcome of government action.
  •  
    as long as the pipe doesn't contaminate any water supplies I don't see a problem with it
  •  
    I find that there are two different sides to this story and for the most part both is good but one is better. The global temperature will be constantly going up no matter how green and organic America will be. There are other countries that are not able to contribute to going green. I find that the Keystone pipeline would be a good mission to strive for because of the state of America. We are not going to be the top of the line forever and maybe just maybe this project will keep us on the top longer.

    I just don't understand why they wouldn't change it if they knew it wasn't right. What reason do you have for not changing it?

Bill C-309 | openparliament.ca - 18 views

  •  
    OK so it is not being proposed in the USA, but this bill recently introduced in Canada is pretty interesting. Think about the people in our country who protest, but don't want their identity to be shown. Would you support this bill or not?

    link seems broken... try this http://openparliament.ca/bills/41-1/C-309/
  •  
    I think its a good law, people should be able to know who you are. If you really wanna protest, you shouldn't care.
  •  
    I believe that if you truly believe in the cause, then you should have to face the consequences, even if that means losing your job or your reputation and status.
  •  
    This bill makes sense. Public safety is at the forefront of this bill, if a protest gets violent or other harmful/unlawful acts occur the persons the are held responsible will be able to be identified. But looking at it from the other side, people might want to conceal their identity at protests, or the masks are part of their protest(example Anonymous). If this bill passes people will be made, if it doesn't pass other people will be mad. Who is the Canadian government ok will making mad?
  •  
    This bill should be passed because if you're risking yourself by already being there, you should have to show your face. Also, if the situation ever turned violent, that person wouldn't get away with it because their face wasn't exposed so they could be identified.
  •  
    I think that this bill should be passed because the police should have the right to identify anyone who is protesting. If you want to protest, protecting your identity shouldn't be a major concern because you would want people to know who you are, and what you are speaking out against.
  •  
    I think if you are going to protest, you are there for a reason, that you strongly believe in, so you should not want to hide who you really are
  •  
    It should be considered that this is a trade for security by means of liberty. Sacrificing freedom for a small degree of protection. If this bill passes, it could easily snowball to other things (this may be a bit of a reach) such as controlling what you can wear altogether just so that you can be identified at all times just in case you might be possibly considering intending to commit a crime.
  •  
    As said in earlier comments, I think that if you want to protest IN PUBLIC then the public has the right to know who you are. If you want you can protest in your house and no one needs to know who you are. But out side of you cant hide from the public if your are going to stand outside with a big sign and yell out things in front of people.
  •  
    I think this should be a bill that becomes a law.
  •  
    I see it as your there or your protesting for a reason so why hide it. If your protesting you believe something is ether wrong or right so why hide your believes. If you don't want to be seen or noticed here's an easy answer don't go!
  •  
    I think that you should be able to wear a mask, because if you're protesting something that you believe in, or don't believe in, than it is a personal matter and you should be able to conceal your identity from the public.
  •  
    I think it might be better if you have to register to be part of a protest but to have the list sealed unless things get violent
  •  
    I think that they should show there faces. Its there choice to go, so then show yourself, dont hide.
