Michael Vickers’s ranch 113 kilometres north of the US–Mexico border in Brooks County, Texas, is near a Border Patrol checkpoint. Undocumented migrants trek through the harsh brushland onto his property to avoid capture. An electric fence encloses the nearly 1,000 acres: at 220 volts, says Vickers, a local veterinarian and avid hunter, “it won’t kill them but it will make them wet their pants”.
In 2006, Vickers and his wife Linda founded the Texas Border Volunteers, which now has some 300 recruits, who dress in fatigues and patrol private ranches in South Texas, using night-vision goggles and thermal imaging to track people in the dark. When they spot migrants they alert the Border Patrol. Former volunteers say the Vickerses did not allow them to provide first aid to migrants in distress or get closer than 10m.
While Congress is deadlocked, with conservative Republicans rejecting anything but a tough crackdown on people crossing illegally into the US, Americans in border states and beyond are becoming increasingly polarized.
The migrants who make it as far as Brooks County tend to be adults, since minors who cross the border will often give themselves up to US authorities, trusting that they will not immediately be deported. Ranchers in Brooks County complain of property damage and trash left behind by the migrants, referred to more often than not as “illegals” or “wetbacks”.
Alright guys listen up!
The Newton County animal shelter in Indiana is going to be shut down.
Why is this such a big deal? Because It’s a no kill shelter.
Newton County does not want to fund a no kill shelter anymore.
The dogs in there have until August 1st, until they are killed.
So people need to adopt them, or help fund it, and get it to $3000.

Cop Arrests Man, Forced Him to Leave Family Pet on the Side of the Freeway to Die
On July 13, Josie Garcia’s husband was pulled over by Houston PD for failure to use a turn signal.
The routine traffic stop lead to a search and prescription drugs belonging to the passenger were found. Both men were subsequently arrested and the SUV was impounded. Charges against her husband were dropped days later.
Unfortunately, Garcia’s 14 year old chihuahua, Guero, was along for the ride.
As the men were being taken into custody and the SUV towed, Guero was removed from the vehicle and left on the side of Highway 59.
Garcia’s husband plead with the officer to let him call someone to come get the dog or for the officer to call animal control, who’s shelter was only 2 blocks away.
The officer refused, claiming the dog would be fine.
For the next 3 days Garcia put up missing posters and searched for her beloved pet. Eventually, she received a call to let her know where he was.
Guero had been found, dead, on the side of the highway not far from where the men were pulled over. The elderly chihuahua was nearly blind from cataracts and had been hit by oncoming traffic. …
Seriously fuck this.
An Indiana police officer has kept his job after pushing over a man in a wheelchair – despite his entire department demanding he be fired.
Lafayette Police Department Lieutenant Tom Davidson can be seen on video, dated October 1st last year, shoving paraplegic Nicholas Kincade.
The assault appears to be prompted by Mr Kincade bumping Lt Davidson’s foot with his motorised wheelchair.
The incident occurred near the Excel School in Indianapolis, where police were called by school staff after Mr Kincade allegedly told them he had a gun in his backpack.
Responding officers quickly found the man didn’t have a gun and he was told that he could leave with a trespassing warning, at the school’s request.
According to Turnto23, Lt Davidson was put on leave during an investigation into his actions, but despite his department saying that he should be fired, the Lafayette Police Civil Service Commision – who vote on hiring and firing officers – instead ruled ‘unbecoming conduct’ and sentenced him to a 30-day unpaid suspension and a drop in rank.

"She immediately alighted, caught hold of the astonished youth, and gave him a sound thrashing, using her fists in a scientific fashion…”
I would love to know what this means.

Life is furious, frantic, temporary, we come into it in a bloody frenzy, fighting our way into the world, and with the first breath we are doomed. The birth cry is a scream of outrage.
