US sparks ?shameful attacks? against International Criminal Court

quote [ The row between the Trump White House and the International Criminal Court (ICC) has worsened after a fresh exchange of insults, with US secretary of state Mike Pompeo describing the court as ?a nakedly political body? ? and global supporters demanding he stop his ?shameful attacks?. ]

I don't know if this issue holds merit. I just want to overcome the under-reported aspect of this story so we can better evaluate its implications.

quote [ Bill Lapinskas? most ambitious efforts to put Spring Creek Correctional Center at the unlikely forefront of prison reform in Alaska didn?t survive a change in elected leadership. Out of a job, he?s now free to talk about why. ]

Convicted Rapist Harvey Weinstein Hired a 'Prison Consultant' to Help Make Life in Prison Easier

quote [ The thing about being rich is that even if your money can?t keep you out of prison (though generally it will), it can make incarceration a whole lot more pleasant. Take, for instance, Harvey Weinstein, who seems to be preparing for a potential 25-year prison sentence for rape by hiring a ?prison consultant.? ]

Damn - he's only 67? I guess being evil AF ages the hell out of a man...

What I learned going from prison to Python

quote [ Less than a year ago, I was in San Quentin State Prison serving a life sentence. [?]
My passion for Python and programming wasn?t something that many of my peers shared. [?] I believe that this is due to the perception that programming isn?t accessible to people who have experienced incarceration, especially if you are a person of color. ]

While my gut feeling says no to embracing teaching code as universal development opportunity (see Tech's push to teach coding [is] about cutting wages) this sounds like a good thing.

Indian film-maker Daniel Shravan suggests legalising ?rape without violence?

quote [ ?Rape is not a serious thing, but murder is inexcusable. The government should legalise rape without violence for the safety of women. It seems to be the only way rape victims can be protected from murder,? Shravan said, in a now-deleted post.

The film-maker said that women should ?cooperate with rapists and carry condoms? with them.

?If you are about to get raped, hand over a condom to the rapist and cooperate with him while he fulfils his sexual desire. That way he will not try to harm you,? Shravan added. ]

We get something like this every couple of years. Is it bad that I read it and thought, 'At least he's only trivializing rape instead of saying women rape men every time they say no..."? Probably.
