Cristian  Fernandez is only 12 years old. And if Florida prosecutor Angela Corey has her  way, he’ll never leave jail again.
Cristian hasn’t  had an easy life. He’s the same age now as his mother was when he was born. He’s  a survivor of physical, emotional, and sexual abuse. In 2010, Cristian watched  his stepfather commit suicide to avoid being charged with abusing Cristian.
Last January,  Cristian was wrestling with his 2-year-old brother, David, and accidentally  broke David’s leg. Despite this, their mother left Cristian with his brother  again in March. While the two boys were alone, Cristian allegedly pushed his  brother against a bookcase, and David sustained a head injury. After their  mother returned home, she waited six hours before taking David to the hospital.  David eventually died.
Now  Cristian is being charged with first degree murder — as an adult. He’s  the youngest person in the history of his Florida county to receive this charge,  and his next hearing is scheduled for tomorrow.

The execution of Troy Davis really irked me. If you haven’t kept up with it, give it a couple minutes of your time. The United States has executed yet another man who may very well have been innocent, and I can’t help but feel embarrassment & sorrow. Too many people have been found innocent after being put to death for me to be ok with capitol punishment. It’s tragic to say the least. 
I wanted to see what other countries still participate in this shameful act, only to find we are in the company of some unsavory places. In case you geography skills are as poor as mine, the countries marked in red include: China, Iran, North Korea, Pakistan, Cuba, Libya, Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq, & Syria, among others. 
Only one country in all of Europe practices it and that is Belarus.

“On the 17th of September, we want to see 20,000 people to flood into lower Manhattan, set up beds, kitchens, peaceful barricades and occupy Wall Street for a few months,” one statement says. “Like our brothers and sisters in Egypt, Greece, Spain, and Iceland, we plan to use the revolutionary Arab Spring tactic of mass occupation to restore democracy in America. We also encourage the use of nonviolence to achieve our ends and maximize the safety of all participants.”
Amazed that this is receiving almost zero media attention. If I was in NYC I would be there right now. Could lead to something amazing and revolutionary.

Spread the word Y’all!

BLOWN AWAY    A dust storm, known as a “haboob,” moves across Phoenix, Arizona about 6pm Thursday, dramatically reducing  visibility and enveloping residents in an eerie, rust-coloured glow.  It’s the third major dust storm that has hit the Phoenix metropolitan  area since July 5; “microbursts” of wind, gusting up to 60 miles per hour, caused much of the area damage.  (Photo: Pat Shannahan / The Arizona Republic via the AP / The Telegraph)
