This is Oz, the precious baby who changed so many lives, and his beautiful mom, Kendrah. Oz’s birth and angel day is today, July 21st. 4 years that has felt like a second and a decade, all at once. Kendrah let me share in Oz’s life for the 9 months and 10 hours we knew him. He is the reason I can’t let go of my own son for very long. Oz changed our hearts, and made them grow. That he is gone makes our lips purse in pain and our dreams shatter. Future hopes and dreams are not so bright, but they are there, and we live, we remember.

I don’t know why we are pressured not to talk about lost children. But I do know that I have way too many girlfriends who are in this horrible, heart-wrenching club. I love you all. And I will remember all of your children.

Star wars logic

And the one on the left is even the newer generation of trooper, they should be engineered at this point to be crazy dangerous

no. energy. to geek out…..basically, troopers are the shit thats left from the clone wars mixed with new recruits, mass produced to fill the ranks. The clone wars were engineered to create 2 armies, the clones and droid army, making it possible for palpatine to come into power, then the war would destroy both armies, leaving an infrastructure with the emperor and vader at the top, while retaining little to none of the past structure intact.

Pennsylvania Judge Sentenced For 28 Years For Selling Kids to the Prison System
Mark Ciavarella Jr, a 61-year old former judge in Pennsylvania, has been sentenced to nearly 30 years in prison for literally selling young juveniles for cash. He was convicted of accepting money in exchange for incarcerating thousands of adults and children into a prison facility owned by a developer who was paying him under the table. The kickbacks amounted to more than $1 million.The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has overturned some 4,000 convictions issued by him between 2003 and 2008, claiming he violated the constitutional rights of the juveniles – including the right to legal counsel and the right to intelligently enter a plea. Some of the juveniles he sentenced were as young as 10-years old.Ciavarella was convicted of 12 counts, including racketeering, money laundering, mail fraud and tax evasion. He was also ordered to repay $1.2 million in restitution.His “kids for cash” program has revealed that corruption is indeed within the prison system, mostly driven by the growth in private prisons seeking profits by any means necessary.
