This Indiana brewhouse just gave a giant middle finger to the State of Indiana

This Indiana brewhouse just gave a giant middle finger to the State of Indiana

Since even long before the days of Prohibition, the G-men have been trying to create laws to keep good, hard-working folks like you and us from having a good time at the local brewhouse. Case in point: the fine folks of the wonderfuly-ultra-conservative Indiana government who have made all sorts of fun rules regarding the sale and distribution of alcohol like no sales on Sundays and no cold beer sold at gas stations. One of their laws even demands local pubs to offer food at their establishments, and the Bank Street Brewhouse‘s menu complies with this law in the most hilarious way possible…

UK Justice Ministry blocks probe into prison rape

Britain’s Ministry of Justice (MoJ) has reportedly blocked an investigation into rape and sexual abuse in prisons, despite evidence suggesting that thousands of inmates are sexually assaulted every year in the UK.

A commission set up by the Howard League for Penal Reform charity estimated in a research released on Sunday that 1 to 5 percent of prisoners – as many as 4,000 people – could be victims of abuse and rape in jails across England and Wales annually.

The research, which was based on interviews with former prisoners conducted 10 years ago, also noted that sexual abuse in British prisons is largely unreported.

It further complained that the commission’s researchers were unable to interview serving prisoners after being blocked by the Justice Ministry. Read the rest of this entry »
