Despite public outcry, Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery said Wednesday he will move forward with the felony child abuse prosecution of Shanesha Taylor, the jobless mom whose Scottsdale arrest has drawn national attention and prompted calls for Taylor to receive assistance rather than punishment. 

Attorney Bill Montgomery’s office received a petition on Tuesday with 12,000 signatures asking for Shanesha’s charges to be dropped. "First, they weren’t signatures; they were just a list of names," Montgomery said, referring to a printout from the website. "So I don’t know whether any of the individuals in their pajamas who logged on to the site and put their name on there really had a clue of all the circumstances involved in this particular case.

Apparently signatures aren’t good enough, let’s call County Attorney Bill Montgomery’s office & tell him to drop the charges against Shanesha Taylor —-> (602) 506-3411

PLEASE call this number and leave a comment. As someone with anxiety myself I know how hard it can be to call people you don’t know but PLEASE let them know that prosecuting Shanesha Taylor is unacceptable. 

It was really hard for me to pick up the phone, but this is unacceptable.

Hi there,

My name is Chiedza Museredza. I am 23 year old final year law student. I was born and raised in Zimbabwe and I’m currently studying Law at the University of Cape Town in South Africa. I am the first person to ever study law in my family and I have made it my goal to be look for opportunities that will make me an outstanding lawyer. This led me to apply to one of the best universities in the world (Oxford) for the summer school they run for law students in partnership with CBL International. The good news is that I have been accepted into the Oxford Law School Summer programme which runs this July  (2014) at Oriel College. I have just under 5 weeks to raise US$4 580 for tuition and accomodation. 

Being accepted into this programme is a huge achievement for me. I am the only student from Africa who has been selected to attend this summer school. In a world that has become very interconnected I believe that opportunities such as these that allow for cultural exchange amongst students from various parts of the world are important. I am confident that I will come out as an enriched student both in terms of the academic work and the interaction with students from around the world and professors at Oxford University. 

African students’ participation in these programs has been limited as a result of lack of funding. However, we are grateful for platforms such as these that allow us to appeal to interested parties like yourself reading this to assist where you can. I am appealing to you to help me live my dream of studying (even though its just for a few weeks) at one of the world’s best universities. 

Thank you for your compassion that has led you to click on this page and read my story. Thank you to those who are able to donate. For those who cannot donate but would like to assist me please may you share my story. 


Chiedza

A Latin-American legend is taken from us today!

I am devastated by this.  He inspired all of Latin-America, was one of the first writers I was introduced to as a Spanish speaker after Juan Rulfo.  RIP.

i’m so shocked

(lol)

But was the USA EVER a democracy tho?

maybe parts of it were before white folks renamed it

I don’t really think of those nations  as the USA tho. I think of them as whatever the people living on it used to name their lands. I know one name was Turtle Island… And Princeton sure as hell aint referring to those nations.

My favorite: “It’s beyond alarming. As Gilens and Page write, “the preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy.” In other words, their statistics say your opinion literally does not matter.”

Haha, awesome. :|
