CGPGrey asks a very important question that is very telling of the times. Can Texas secede from the Union? Unsurprisingly, Texas has actually–for realz–tried to secede in the past, and the Supreme Court even ruled states cannot secede. But, what if?
Viewers are outraged after a Texas mother was arrested for charges of child neglect while she watched them play on their scooters in front of her. She had to spend the night in jail, and now is suing La Porte Police Department, the officer, and one nosy neighbor.
KPRC reports the whole story started when mom, Tammy Cooper, was sitting on her front porch watching her two kids, ages nine and six, play on their scooters in their calm, suburban cul-de-sac.
For some horrible reason, her neighbor called the police on her for apparently abandoning her children.
These are scary times. Most netizens can’t help but express that even if mom was inside making lunch there’s nothing wrong with kids playing outside unsupervised, and that police were never the answer. Couldn’t Nosy Neighbor first check on mom first before calling in the SWAT team?
Reddit user Kindall also points out the irony of her obviously unwarranted overnight imprisonment: “Even assuming the kids weren’t being supervised properly, it’s pretty damn hard to supervise your kids from jail.”
Yahoo user Richard sarcastically adds: “I can see it now. Mark Twain’s The Supervised Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.”
Most graduation ceremonies are long, boring, and dull, as if the school is trying to give students one last taste of high school.
But that wasn’t the case at Eastwood High School in El Paso, Texas. They gave their graduates the opportunity to perform a synchronized celebration dance, titled I Had The Time Of My Life, to a mix of Black Eyed Peas hits.
