Alabama sheriff’s deputy attacks LGBTQ community after gay teen dies by suicide
A sheriff’s deputy in Alabama has been placed on leave after he made anti-LGBTQ comments on social media — specifically, on a post about a teenage boy who was bullied until he killed himself, Alabama.com reported Monday.
Last weekend, a local Alabama news station shared Rocket City Pride’s Facebook post about Nigel Shelby, a 15-year-old who died by suicide after being bullied for being gay, according to Rocket City Pride. The station’s story specifically highlighted the fact that LGBTQ people face a higher risk of violence and that they often lack legal protections.
On Sunday, Madison County Deputy Jeff Graves denounced the entire LGBTQ community in a comment to that Facebook post.
“Liberty. Guns. Bible. Trump. BBQ. That’s my kind of LGBTQ movement,”

RICKY ADAMS: OHIO MAN WHO STOPPED CHILD ABUSER MOLESTING 5-YEAR-OLD BOY DIES
An Ohio man who made national news after he was arrested for attacking a 17-year-old male who was allegedly molesting a 5-year-old boy has died.

Women Sexually Abused By Catholic Nuns Speak Up: She Told Me It Was ‘God’s Love’
The predator nun walked into Trish Cahill’s life straight out of the blue, on a busy summer day in the late 1960s.
Cahill was a teenager back then, wire thin with long, chestnut brown hair framing her face. She was babysitting her cousins in Glen Rock, New Jersey, and there were eight of them to look after ? a big Catholic family, much like her own.
One cousin was playing outside that day and Cahill had another little one in a high chair in the kitchen. It was quite a common child care tactic at the time, she said ? stick a kid in a playpen in the yard and watch through the window while doing chores and taking care of the others inside.
Cahill was washing dishes at the sink when she looked up and spotted a nun, in a full religious habit, hovering over the baby’s playpen.
At that point in her life, the teenager was still trying to make sense of a painful secret ? the sexual abuse she says she experienced just years earlier from her uncle, a Catholic priest. So when she saw the nun leaning over the baby, Cahill said, she sprinted outside to protect the child.
“It was like, ‘You’re not going to touch her, you’re not going to put your hands on her,’” Cahill remembers thinking.
But the nun she met took her by surprise.

Farmworker Women Facing Sexual Harassment are Offered Few Protections
We come in contact with the labor of farmworkers every time we eat, which means every day thousands of women across the country put their bodies on the line to nourish ours.
There are approximately two to three million people employed as farmworkers across the United States, the majority of whom were born in Mexico, according to the 2015–2016 National Agricultural Workers Survey (NAWS). According to NAWS, women make up approximately 32% of that workforce.
They plant, harvest, and package the food we eat. Their long hours, strenuous working conditions, and agricultural expertise provide the sustenance that fuels our country’s diet.
All farmworkers are susceptible to pesticide exposure, lack of protections through labor laws, and what some activists refer to as modern slavery conditions, but the added threat of sexual violence puts women in the agriculture industry at added risk. Specific laws are lacking, women farmworkers are often excluded from established conversations about harassment in the workplace, and the violence continues.
This pastor allegedly drugged & brutally raped two men before going home to his wife
Police in Michigan are accusing a pastor of using drugs to lure two young men into his home and office and then sexually assaulted them.

The victim said that he smoked meth with Cox and took CBD shots, and Cox gave him GHB. The probable cause statement says that he was incapacitated for several hours, during which Cox raped him repeatedly.
This Republican pled guilty to paying two young boys for sex multiple times. Now he denies it all.

Uber sued for $10 million by woman who was sexually assaulted by her driver
A resident of Washington, DC, is suing Uber for negligence and consumer protection violations, after she was sexually assaulted by one of the ride-hail company’s drivers. The victim, listed only as “Jane Doe” in court documents, claims Uber portrays itself as a safe mode of transportation for women, especially if they have been drinking, when in fact they are putting those women in harm’s way.
The victim was sexually assaulted by an Uber driver named Raul E. Rodriguez Vasquez on April 1st, 2018, according to court documents. She later told a social worker, who contacted the police. They collected DNA evidence linking Vasquez to the assault. He pleaded guilty to one count of sexual abuse and is currently in jail.
The civil case is the latest example of Uber’s ongoing problem with sexual assault and abuse by drivers. Last year, CNN reported that at least 103 Uber drivers in the US had been accused of sexually assaulting or abusing their passengers over a period of four years. At least 31 drivers have been convicted for crimes ranging from forcible touching and false imprisonment to rape, and dozens of criminal and civil cases are pending, CNN found. In June 2017, a Kansas City woman sued Uber after she was raped by a driver, claiming the company ignored warnings about the driver’s criminal history.
