I like DC characters; I just hate DC

I'm Amy, a white queer atheist vegetarian cis female physics major. I spend most of my time fangirling Connor Hawke, Jason Todd and Cassandra Cain. This blog is sex-positive, body positive, QUILTBAG positive, anti-racism, anti-misogyny, anti-ableism, anti-oppression in general, anti-whatever fuckery DC is pulling now, and pro-Missing-E. Check out http://daggerpen.livejournal.com/tag/fanfiction for my fics. I have SPD and a migraine disorder, so please tag for flashing lights, general trigger warnings, and, just as a personal "I'm tired of seeing scans from these shitty arcs" thing, tag for Fabian Nicieza and Grant Morrison, as well as the issue numbers of the arcs in which they both butchered Jason's characterization.
I am likewise willing to tag for anything. I do my best to tag for anything that might generally be a problem for someone, but if I'm posting something you need to Savior, just drop me an ask and I'll do my best.

Malicious Prosecution (by Anthony Arbogast-DeLuca)

Content warnings for sexual abuse of children and a conspiracy by government officials to cover up abuse.

Video description: This is a video of a conversation between South Dakota State Investigators on November 4, 2011 (prior to obtaining a search warrant) discussing their plan to criminally prosecute Brandon Taliaferro and Shirley Schwab despite having no evidence of any wrongdoing.

According to http://splitfeathers.blogspot.com/2012/12/rough-justice-in-indian-country.html :

Brandon Taliaferro and Shirley Schwab are, respectively, a deputy state’s attorney and a child welfare advocate who took action to stop the sexual and physical abuse reported by a group of Native children adopted into white homes by their “parents”. During the investigation, “Sheriff’s deputies [took] the children out of school… and brought them to the basement room, with its table, chairs, one-way mirror, and recording equipment. One by one, the children faced Agent Mark Black of the Department of Criminal Investigations and a partner. The children were each alone, without an adult present on their behalf.”

As further reported in the article,”while being questioned by the agents, the children became fearful and wept, according to someone familiar with the case who asked not to be identified for fear of retribution. The youngsters were apparently not told they were being recorded. While left alone for a time, one explored the room, discovered the camera equipment behind a peephole, and began to cry.”

This blatant attempt to cover up abuse by state officials, and to punish those who sought to aid these children, is sickening.

The trial of Brandon and Shirley is set for January 7 of this year. They are being charged with coercing the children to falsely report that they were being abused.

Please spread this like wildfire.
