Summary: CVS pharamacist thinks the prescription is a fake. She arrives at CVS with crutches and an IV sticking out of her arm. An officer is there who arrests her saying the pharamacist hasn't made a mistake before and sticks her in jail overnight. Next day it is found she is innocent. So now she's obviously suing CVS. Though really the cops are just as wrong. Basically acted like the local CVS/pharamacists [paid] arms. -- Anyway, the comments are mainly filled with people angry at the cops, CVS, and the pharmacist. Many comments calling them idiots, power hungry, etc. But really, this stuff wouldn't be such an issue if we didn't have so many restrictions and laws in place with drugs. #politics #drugs #pharmacy #police #laws #news #corruption #status_quo #pub

"So what you are saying is because it is a sensitive topic it can't be discussed? Upvotes or not, I simply don't agree, and what both of these people have said is true whether it was sensitive or not. It doesn't however, mean Jeff's resiliency means nothing, don't take it that way - but to say a comparison can not be spoken of because it is sensitive is something I disagree with." #status_quo #political_correctness #group_think #benevolent_moralism #boston_marathon_bombing #pub

"Bauman showing up and showing his support after such a horrific event is like saying "Yeah I got my legs blown off, but I'm not going to let the _terrorists_^ change my life." Don't get me wrong, Arredondo is a hero. But Bauman is also a hero and equally deserves to be honoured for his loss and heroism." #boston_marathon_bombing #group_think #political_correctness #status_quo #benevolent_moralism #pub

Clarence Elkins www.truthinjustice.org
"Take, for instance, the case of Clarence Elkins. Elkins was sentenced to life in prison for the 1998 murder of his mother-in-law. The witness that helped put Elkins behind bars was his six year old niece, Brooke. Brooke had been staying the night with her grandmother when someone came into the house. The man killed the grandmother and sexually assaulted Brooke before fleeing. Later, describing the man, Brooke initially claimed that he looked like her Uncle Clarence. Later, she changed her story. She said he was her Uncle Clarence. That testimony proved to be so damning that Elkins was sentenced to life in prison, even though he had an alibi and was not known as a violent man. Years later, the little girl retracted her statement, but she had a difficult time getting the legal system to believe her. When she wanted to accuse, they were all ears, but when she wanted to free an innocent man, that proved to be much more difficult. Eventually, after a legal battle, Elkins was set free. He had spent seven long years in prison, all due to the false testimony of his niece." #BS #corruption #government #laws #status_quo #prison #pub

"One can also examine the Fells Acre Day Care Center, which found itself in the middle of a legal firestorm in 1984. The case started off slowly, but quickly gathered steam. One student accused his teacher, Gerald Amirault, with sexual abuse. He did not tell of sexual abuse until he was questioned by his mother and his uncle. He and his cousin had been playing a sexual charged game, which is why the adults felt the need to question the child. What started off as one accusation turnedinto Gerald being charged with raping nine children, while his mother and sister, who also worked at the daycare, were charged with crimes against four other children The incident...turned into a witch hunt. Police had an open meeting with parents, giving them warning signs of sexual abuse and instructing them to look for them in their children. One can usually find something if looking hard enough. If a child as much as wet the bed, it was because of sexual abuse at the hands of a teacher" #BS #corruption #laws #witch_hunts #status_quo #government #pub

colinr's comment: "you don't need another app to avoid people, just look at what friends have checked in where that day in the 4sq app. It's way easier than going back and forth between two apps. i'm surprised even 2,500 people are actively using this. even more surprised nymag thought this was worth writing about." #from:Windows_Phone #BS #PR #status_quo #pointless #pub

"cristianpascu 6 hours ago | link | parent | flag I few days ago I was accused here on HN of being homophobic, you know, like in hating homosexuals, because I expressed my opinion that a child needs a mother and a father. In other news, here's an interesting discussion on humor: http://philosophybites.com/2011/04/no%C3%ABl-carroll-on-humo... seivan 4 hours ago | link Your opinion sure is. reply syncerr 3 hours ago | link His opinion is sexist and not homophobic. He's saying a male father provides specific things that only a male father can provide; likewise with the female mother. He would be opposed to two parents of the same sex, but for sexist reasons." _This is along the pattern lines of being incredibly sensitive to causes like homophobia and feminism in first world countries. Clearly here, the OP is not in the wrong for being homophobic yet gets called out ,lol." #issues #benevolent_specific_caring #PC #status_quo #Hate_speech #pub

“If I were a black teenager, I would wear a white t-shirt and khaki shorts at all times, even if it’s winter,” said 34-year-old claims adjuster Nick Delmar…“What can I say other than it’s scary as all hell out there for you,” he added. “Good luck and godspeed.” #funny #Trayvon_Martin #status_quo #race_division #social_classes #pub
