"Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, an Indian pop-star and telepreacher with a reported wealth of more than $50 million, is being investigated after he allegedly manipulated around 400 men to get their testicles removed.Talk about the gift of bag, whoops... I mean gab."
...in the comments...
"The overview reveals a virtually identical homicide solving rate for Aboriginal women (88%) and non-Aboriginal women (89%). The study reveals that the rate of stranger perpetrated homicide against Aboriginal women is 8%, virtually the same as for non-Aboriginal women (7%).As tragic as this situation is is (and gawd knows there is tragedy aplenty in aboriginal circles) the evidence clearly indicates that there is no coverup here. No evidence supports that aboriginal women are being targeted by race or that the murders of aboriginal women are being ignored by law enforcement agencies. In fact, some folks would argue that cops focus entirely too much on that demographic...
The incarceration rate of aboriginal men is 11 times that of non-native men; of women, it is 250 times the rate for non-native women.So what is actually going on here?
It's not exactly going out on a limb to surmise that a significant portion of these murders are domestic violence. 93% are murdered by people they know. 63% were drunk or on drugs. The facts speak for themselves.Wishing doesn't make it otherwise.

Don't let anyone get behind you...
Toronto police are warning the public to be cautious after a shooting in the area of Morecambe Gate and Victoria Park Avenue north of Finch Ave. The man was shot in the back, paramedics said.The report seems to indicate this guy was waiting in a bus shelter and some random sociopath lit him up from behind.
Keep your head on a swivel... just like Iraq. Who exactly is it we're looking for? Sure thing, officer.
This oughta be interesting. Remember, though... crime is way down.
The new emoji feature a range of skin tone options and a new “neutral” default of yellow, which is required by the Unicode specification to be “non-realistic.”Yes, there's something for everyone...
There’s a ton of new family emojis to cover off different family composition.Well, maybe not everyone. Strangely, there's not a hijab to be seen... an obvious oversight given current geopolitical realities.
Take that, white privilege.
