If you're on Facebook or Twitter, follow police Lt. Tim McMillan. He's put his career at risk to become a social activist, commenting on all kinds of injustices and even criticizing abuses by law enforcement, while also an active duty police officer.

This video explains how he made the transition from being a good cop to being a good cop and social activist.

I would still disagree, but I could understand this sentiment if it was a silly stunt or something. But, this one seems like it might have been driven by mental illness; maybe depression or dementia. That could happen to anyone, and it's not funny.

Dozens of job offers for girl fined for lemonade stand - BBC News

The setup:
Mr Spicer told how his daughter had "burst into tears" after enforcement officers "began reading from a big script explaining that she did not have a trading licence"

He said: "My daughter clung to me screaming 'Daddy, Daddy, I've done a bad thing.' She's five.

"We were then issued a fine of 150. We packed up and walked home."

The middle passage:
A council spokesman said: "We are very sorry that this has happened. We expect our enforcement officers to show common sense and to use their powers sensibly.

"This clearly did not happen."

The resolution:
Tower Hamlets Council has since apologised for issuing the fixed penalty notice and cancelled the fine.


Mr Spicer said his daughter had received offers to set up lemonade stands at festivals and at Borough Market in Southwark.


The family tweeted "We have been overwhelmed by the kind response from people across the world.
"Dozens of festivals, markets and businesses have offered us the opportunity to set up a lemonade stand.

In the full story, they said that two months prior, the local girl scouts had a fundraiser to raise the money to buy pet oxygen masks for the fire department.





This thread should be a sticky, or at least get more action in the future. It's easy to forget how many good things happen along with the bad.

Here's one that's dear to my heart because I help with turtle and tortoise rescue. This is not my group. Please everyone. Recycle. Or just don't use disposable if you can avoid it.

Same group pulled a plastic fork out of this one. Again, please keep in mind that a lot of plastic does end up in the oceans.
