Jeffrey Epstein had vast trove of lewd photos of young-looking girls, prosecutors say

quote [ According to the indictment, between 2002 and 2005, Epstein ran a trafficking enterprise in which he paid hundreds of dollars in cash to girls as young as 14 to have sex with him at his Upper East Side home and his estate in Palm Beach, worked with employees and associates to lure the girls to his residences and paid some of his victims to recruit other girls for him to abuse.
"In this way, Epstein created a vast network of underage victims for him to sexually exploit, often on a daily basis," Manhattan US Attorney Geoffrey Berman said in a statement. ]

"How will you feel if Bill Clinton gets implicated by Jeffrey Epstein?"

I dunno - feeling pretty fucking good with my "any pedophile is bad" policy.

Star Control lawfight settled by bees

quote [ Bees have intervened to amicably settle the legal dispute over rights to the Star Control series of sci-fi explore-o-RPGs. After finding common ground in a love of bees, Star Control creators Fred Ford and Paul Reiche III have hashed out a deal with Star Control: Origins developers Stardock that all parties say is nice and good and fine. ]

Totally forgot about this other bee-related article. That won't calm the wrath of the interrupted bee-streakers, right? Sorry.

But look, they settled this hefty brand dispute going on for years simply by calling each other.

Judge Panel: Ohio must replace its illegally gerrymandered congressional district map in time for the 2020 election.

quote [ A three-judge federal panel unanimously ruled that Ohio must replace its illegally gerrymandered congressional district map in time for the 2020 election. In court filings leading up the the ruling, the state said it must have a map by September of this year, in order to prepare for the 2020 election.

The judges laid out an aggressive timetable to create a new map, ordering the state to ?enact a remedial plan consistent? with the court?s opinion by June 14. That plan and details of how the new map was determined must be submitted by June 21. The advocates who brought the suit will then have a week to object to the new map.

Friday?s ruling said that if necessary, the court could create its own map with the help of a special master. ]

Interesting times ahead...

Winnie the pooh voice actor accused rapist/animal abuser

quote [ Jim Cummings, who has voiced both Winnie the Pooh and Tigger in Disney films, has been accused by his ex-wife of rape and physical violence. ]

Granted the accusations come from his ex wife and not proven so I'd take it with a grain of salt, but the accusations aren't mild.

Ecuador legalized gangs. Murder rates plummeted.

quote [ It?s all about a progressive, rational policy for social control. There?s this idea known as ?deviance amplification? ? basically, when you want to stop a behavior, the worst thing you can do is prohibit it. Social inclusion is the most productive means of social control. You have to have a system where most of people?s engagement with the authorities is as positive as possible. ]

Read this just now and was reminded of strategies in a sound collage featuring Black Panther statements which focused heavily on social work.
