Brain-dead Newscasters on School Crime

urbismedia-mediaclownsToo bizarre for words:

The crime itself…
The fact that a teacher apparently participated in and encouraged it…
That the teacher is facing far less bail that the student…

The petition:

We petition the obama administration to:

Investigate and deport Jasmine Sun who was the main suspect of a famous Thallium poison murder case (victim:Zhu Lin) in China

This one doesn’t require sleuthing powers for help

Learn more about the state of internships in the U.S.

‘In the past few decades, the number of internships in the United States has ballooned. One recent study found that just over half of graduating college seniors had held some sort of internship. That’s more than double the rate another study found two decades ago.
