Sterek Week - Friday AU
During their fight against the latest monster of the week, Stiles might have stumbled upon a weird tree creature. If he decided to take him to Derek’s to brighten up the place, including the resident Alpha, and name him Groot because grumpy and roots, getit, well, that would totally have been one of his best plans ever…

I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW HEARTILY I BELIEVE THAT DEREK HALE NEEDS A LITTLE DANCING TREE FOR A FRIEND

YOU ARE A GENIUS MY FRIEND

But are you paying attention to what’s going on??? My heart is so heavy….. so heavy…

An attorney for the family of John Crawford III, the man fatally shot by police in an Ohio Walmart store, says surveillance video contradicts the police department’s version of events. Officers say Crawford refused to drop the pellet gun he was holding, but the video allegedly shows them gunning him down “on sight.”

Crawford, 22, was shopping at the Beavercreek, Ohio store on Aug. 5 whenpolice responded to another customer’s report that Crawford was carrying an AR-15 rifle. He was actually holding a pellet air rifle he had just picked up from a shelf in the store’s toy department.

Attorney Michael Wright says he viewed surveillance video that shows Crawford was facing away from the cops and talking to his girlfriend on the phone when police spotted him, and didn’t have the toy gun raised. Hetold WDTN Crawford probably didn’t see or hear the officers before he was shot.

"John was doing nothing wrong in Walmart, nothing more, nothing less than shopping,"Wright said, according to Reuters.

Pennsylvania Judge Sentenced For 28 Years For Selling Kids to the Prison System
Mark Ciavarella Jr, a 61-year old former judge in Pennsylvania, has been sentenced to nearly 30 years in prison for literally selling young juveniles for cash. He was convicted of accepting money in exchange for incarcerating thousands of adults and children into a prison facility owned by a developer who was paying him under the table. The kickbacks amounted to more than $1 million.The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has overturned some 4,000 convictions issued by him between 2003 and 2008, claiming he violated the constitutional rights of the juveniles – including the right to legal counsel and the right to intelligently enter a plea. Some of the juveniles he sentenced were as young as 10-years old.Ciavarella was convicted of 12 counts, including racketeering, money laundering, mail fraud and tax evasion. He was also ordered to repay $1.2 million in restitution.His “kids for cash” program has revealed that corruption is indeed within the prison system, mostly driven by the growth in private prisons seeking profits by any means necessary.

Why might this not be a HUGE national story and his name not household? I’ll give you one guess what color those kids were.

Stay FUCKING Woke.
We are not crazy. This shit is happening.

The GOP supports equal pay for women, except when it’s on the Senate floor 

Republicans are claiming that they support equal pay for women, but the party’s recent actions tell a different story.

The claim comes in this tweet from the Republican National Committee (via the Huffington Post) marking Labor Day, the holiday meant for celebrating the American worker by issuing hollow political statements that don’t really add up.

Equality wasn’t the priority in April | Follow micdotcom

EXCUSED ME?!?!? No but really, EXCUSE ME? This, from the party who regularly goes on cable-news tears about how mommies make different choices and deserve to get paid less? And the people who parrot Libertarian hero Milton Friedman saying it’s better for women to get paid less? They FILIBUSTERED the Paycheck Fairness Act. They routinely muddle the argument by saying women choose lower-paying fields than men, conveniently ignoring that the statistics on equal pay are about wages for the SAME work.

Just un-fucking-believable.

"What are you looking at?" Stiles scoffs, feeling himself blush under the werewolf’s intense stare. He knows he can’t hide the way it makes his heart skip a beat.

Derek only tilts his head to the side, a soft smile playing on his lips.

Watching this (and fearing broken ankles with each loop) I can’t helping thinking about that old quote Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, except backwards and in high heels.

But no, if you watch closely you’ll see she doesn’t even step on the last chair. That means she had to trust that fucker to lift her gently to the ground while he was spinning down onto that chair. That takes major guts. I’d be pissing myself and fearing a broken neck if I were in her place. Kudos to her. 

I can’t stop watching this.
