Mizzou Names First Person To Take Chief Diversity Officer Job
Huffington Post - over 1 year
The University of Missouri has named Chuck Henson, an associate dean in the School of Law, as its interim Vice Chancellor for Inclusion, Diversity and Equity, the school announced Tuesday in a campuswide email. The vice chancellor role was one of several efforts introduced last month to improve the racial climate on campus. Other such initiatives include mandatory diversity training for students and staff, starting in January. Henson, the university noted, has a background studying civil rights law and discrimination, and had previously worked in the office of the Missouri attorney general.  Following the protests in Ferguson, Henson has given talks on campus about the legal realities of racial profiling by police. When a U.S. Department of Justice report found racist behavior among Ferguson police officers, Henson told students the information "should shock you and make you mad as hell." In September 2014, he wrote about the Ferguson events in a historical context, not ...

Michele Leonhart
Hawaii News Daily - almost 2 years
So it looks like Michele Leonhart is finally going to be leaving the DEA. Michele Leonhard, Head of D.E.A., to Retire Over Handling of Sex Scandal Ms. Leonhart’s impending departure after eight years in the top job follows a hearing last week in which lawmakers on the House Oversight Committee expressed outrage about her handling of reports that D.E.A. agents in Colombia had participated in sex parties with prostitutes paid for by drug cartels. Before we go any further, let’s make a couple of things crystal clear: 1. Michele Leonhart leaving is only part of the solution. The entire agency is corrupt and needs to be dismantled. 2. Sex parties aren’t the problem. They’re just a symptom. The scandal only demonstrates the obscene level to which the agency considers itself above the law and responsible to no ethical or legal code, while at the same time using violence against citizens to enforce arbitrary laws that they help create. So Michele is going to retire. She’s not ...

Jevons Brown Sent Cat Poop To Companies That Didn't Hire Him
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Nobody likes being turned down for a job, but Jevons Brown thought it was especially crappy. The 58-year-old St. Louis man decided to let his prospective employer know how he felt by sending them packages of cat poop via the U.S. mail, the Associated Press reported. Investigators were able to sniff up 20 cat poop packages and connect them to Brown, a veteran. “This is not a victimless crime,” Assistant U.S. Attorney John Bodenhausen said in court Friday. Bodenhausen later clarified that the victims affected included postal workers, people whose mail was adjacent to Brown's packages, and the employees who received the cat poop, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Brown received two years of probation on Friday after pleading guilty in August to a misdemeanor charge of mailing injurious articles, UPI.com reports. Officials went easy on Brown because he had no prior arrest record Dumb As A Blog reports.

Burglar Breaks Into Home, Cooks Bacon
Huffington Post - over 3 years
A bacon-eating, beer-guzzling burglar is on the loose in North Dakota. Last week, a 30-year-old Bismarck woman told police that someone broke into her home, then cooked some of her bacon in the microwave, The Bismarck Tribune reported. Three cans of Bud Light were also missing from the residence. The break-in took place sometime between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday, when the resident returned home and noticed the distinct scent of cooked bacon lingering in the air. It is unclear whether the suspect, if caught, will face additional charges for the unforgivable crime of cooking bacon in a microwave. The delectable salty breakfast food has lured others to criminal activity in the past. Last year, a Missouri man was sentenced to seven years in prison after breaking into a stranger's home and frying bacon in her kitchen, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. And in 2011, three teens broke into a store freezer in Indiana and made off with $90 worth of bacon.
