Re: “The always-on stalker

Excellent journalism, Hilary!
Very well researched, articulated, and sutured.

Unfortunately, the feeling of being stonewalled or unassisted by the very faculties allegedly designed to protect innocent victims and pursue justice is not an uncommon sense.
The links between such similar subjects as cyber-bullying and sexual assault (Among other offenses) obviously need to be driven home harder, and likely on repeat.
If people are sick of hearing how the system has failed victims of sexual assault (And deign to chalk it up to insincere feminist rampancy), the issues of such voices may well be interlaced with the apparent failures of our justice operatives.
Frustration with the system is not fundamentally different for a male or a female.
If a man is falsely accused of raping a woman, it would certainly be an injustice to the accused individual should the police not provide a thorough investigation unhindered by prejudice.
The same goes for a woman who is victimized.
Articles like this are essential to improving support systems across the board, and will hopefully spotlight the apparent systemic malfunctions that engage all parties involved.

Re: “Enough shit already.

Well, this is amusing to read as well as inspiring toward critical thinking about lucrative, local issues such as the waste management of the HRM, civil justice, fertilizer...
I am the "nose-ringed hippy".
My room-mates posted this bitch to crack an ironic joke regarding my poop-scooping policies.
Unless my dog is crapping like the hulk, I always have enough bags on me and religiously pick up his deposits. Heck, I'll pull bags out of my own ass just to feel my pup's warm secretions cushioned in my responsible palm on the walk to the trash-can. I am a crap magician.
I would like to say however that I never used to take bags from the grocery store until I got a dog, and I do resent this a bit.
My concern is that biodegradable fecal matter, regardless of its particular fertilizing properties, surely must be more eco-friendly than landfills of pastic bags preventing excrement from returning to the earth through organic processes.
Regardless, public space is public space. I hate getting poop on my shoe as much as the next person.
I choose to respect the right of the innocent pedestrian. According to this "ninjasalad" fellow, the public is potentially pyschopathic and irrationally willing to stab dog-owners as vigilantes for this particularly fetid cause. I propose that he take up a more worthy cause, such as mediating word use in order to convey a point. "You should have crapped on the animal/owner" would have been far more candid.
As for you, Andall and Jerry, wait for yours!
I'm thinking, "I saw you drop that bloodied coat-hanger into the dumpster behind the church...".
