2023.05.31 19:15 djkhaled108 July/August destinations from the UK

Hi all,
I'm struggling to think of a good holiday destination for a honeymoon at the end of july/start of August that will include some good diving!
We were initially going to do Sri Lanka and Maldives but that just became too expensive.
A lot of other options like Caribbean and some other SEA seem to he too much of a bad weather risk due to rain/hurricane etc.
Trying to think where we can go that js a bit more affordable than the obvious Maldives but will still be better than (Malta) for diving.
I've done a couple of Red Sea liveaboards and they are great in the summer but I don't think I'll get away with that as a honeymoon!
Any ideas?

2023.05.31 19:12 kimiwaffles I chose a holiday with my family over a baby

I’ve had this anger pent up since Christmas when it happened.
My husband and I made plans with my sister and husband to visit my mom & parter for Christmas. Our niece (My husbands brothers 2nd child) was due around that time. We had thought we might miss the babies birth. During our 10 years married we have spent Christmas Day with my family 1 time prior to this. My sister was really insistent we spend this Christmas with my mom. We spend basically every holiday with my husbands family.
As the holiday approaches COVID is still an issue. My husband has been conditioned to please everyone in his family and so when asked if we would be meeting the baby if she comes before our trip he said yes. I didn’t think much of it, yet.
Day of birth: BIL send message to family. No visitors due to COVID. BIL calls bragging about how they didn’t have to take COVID tests in the hospital and the nurses said they weren’t vaccinated and you don’t have to wear a mask BIL says visitors are allowed but need to get tested Baby is born FIL and MIL get to hospital & report they were not tested for COVID. We’re in California, so this is very abnormal.
This gives me major red flags.. right?? The prior year when we visited my family the week before Christmas this same BIL showed up to my family gathering when he was in town. Didn’t wear a mask. Christmas Eve he reports he has COVID. We all got exposure notifications. My mom and her partner had to cancel their Christmas plans and spend it alone, my sister and her husband had to cancel their plans and so did we. All of my family spent Christmas alone due to COVID.
So when faced with the decision to go meet the baby 2 days before we’re supposed to leave to spend Christmas with my family I obviously said no. My husband wasn’t fully on my side, feeling pressure from his very intense family, so he tried to buy some time. I don’t know why. Eventually it came out that we weren’t coming to see the baby until after our trip. I apologized to the mom for not being there but hope she understands it’s for safety reasons. She said no worries.
My mother in law tries to get involved and sends my husband this text: “I’m sure you are being pressured in all directions but just remember what’s most important.” 😮EXCUSE ME? To me she was inferring that her family is more important than mine. Am I reading this wrong?
We get down to our accommodations and are spending time with my family when my husband receives a phone call from his brother. BIL had been sober for a few years but sounded absolutely scary. He was yelling at my husband calling him a pu**y and that he’s not a man, “I don’t even know who you are anymore” and relentless name calling and put downs. For 45 minutes. My husband wouldn’t let me grab the phone no matter how hard I tried. If I would have gotten ahold of it I would have screamed SHUT THE F UP YOUR FAMILY IS NOT MORE IMPORTANT THAN MINE! Alas I never had the chance.
My husband then received over 50 text messages with the same type content. My husband is so used to this abuse it doesn’t affect him at all. Meanwhile my heart rate was through the roof and my palm are sweaty just typing this.
My husband apologized on behalf of us but IIRC the receiving of the apology was just whatever.
We had plans to spend 3 days on the coast together after Christmas, but decided to cancel to just get it over with (meeting the baby).
This family has gigantic altercations and then everyone sweeps everything under the rug and it is never discussed.
We went to meet the baby when she was 9 days old. While we were there my husband and more importantly BIL didn’t interact with the baby at all during the 2 hours we were there. But I did. And I guess that satisfied them.
And there was never an apology. No discussion. Don’t I deserve one? Doesn’t my husband deserve one?
Fast forward to now (you might have seen my MIL vs A/C post) and I’m realizing this has all been compounding on me and I’m furious and resentful.
Sigh Thanks if you made it this far.

2023.05.31 19:12 Ysan_ Thoughts on working overtime please?

Just moved to new city and got in this firm, crazy projects (in a good way)and good pay/benefits and great office vibe, however it seems like people here CONSTANTLY work overtime time(of course unpaid). We have a full house 1.5 hrs after time every day and teams msgs are crazy 11pm and on holidays. As a jr-mid level I have no intention to become the president nor the principal, just want to make a living while doing something I fairly like. Should I run away or should I stay here for longer for the experience/resume. Please share your thoughts, thanks!

2023.05.31 19:10 Api_lopi Why is RIT Inn so cheap?

I’m a junior considering RIT for college, and am confused as to why RIT Inn is so cheap in comparison to other housing options. Does it really include a pool and fitness centre? If so why is it so much cheaper than other housing options when it even includes its own bathroom? What are the pros and cons to it?

2023.05.31 19:09 alexanderb35 Read between the lines. Part 1: drug laws. Part 2: interacting with police. Summary

Mtl law book
Controlled drugs and substances act, cdsa. Substances on this list are controlled substances. Schedules are categories substances fall into
If lose case can be deported
If you possess over the legal limit of pot can be imprisoned post 2018 still. 2018 is when pot was legalized.
There are provincial and federal laws
The police arrest but the crown charges. Crown can charge for a different crime then police arrested for.
If you are being prosecuted then there are charges against you in a criminal file
The crown and police have a lot discretionary power with your treatment and your file. Crown is like prosecutor, not police.
Director of penal and criminal prosecutions, DPCP, prosecutor provincial boss, instruct and provide guidance for prosecutors. Other provinces have their own name.
Jury or judge acquit which means your innocent. Prosecutor can also withdraw charges "withdrawn" status.
Sentence are possible consequences of being guilty
Priors are prior criminal record
Law enforcement officer: immigration officers, police, youth protection agents, municipal inspectors, correctional officers etc.
Black, indigenous, racialized and migrant communities, people who are known to the police, are targeted more by police, meaning police also violate their human rights more often. Sentenced more harshly than whites. Drug laws are historically created to target these groups.
Systematic bias: those with authority, even incl teachers, have explicit or implicit bias against certain communities
Racial profiling: officers target certain groups of ppl and postal codes more.
Anti gang squad, anti gun squad, anti radicalization are dog whistles for targetting minorities. Also includes applying additional surv eillance to target group.
During say a anti gun police raids, they can prosecute the raided for any illegal drugs the cops find. This results in potential criminals fearing to call the police bc if there is an investigation the police could nail the caller. If a sex worker has HIV and does not disclose their HIV status it counts as sexual assault, meaning if a John beats her up, risky to call the cops on him.
If have PR status and found guilty could be deported/removal. Some drug addicts only are PRs.
Anytime you speak to police you are making a statement. Crown can use these statements to convince someone else to plead guilty or convict. Your silence cannot incriminate but your statement might.
Police allowed to lie. Will do anything really to get a statement. Don't react to any of their behaviours, comments, or questions since that can be a statement. Try to remain silent. But many ppl do not have the privilege of remaining quiet, ex that can worsen police behavior.
Rehearse how to speak to police without providing any incriminating statements if you think you want to make a statement.
Police cannot arrest you if they don't identity at least 1 offence. On arrest they give undertaking paper or hold you until court date.
After released by police, prosecutor might decide not to prosecute. If police are holding you after arrest your 1st court date happens after 1-3 days. Sentencing may be postponed until therapy/school/work etc is complete.
1st court case is usually 1-3 days after arrest, then bail applies for the 2nd court date in like months/yrs. When released after arrest can be released without conditions.
If plead guilty with lawyer, lawyer can negotiate to have certain charges withdrawn
Cannabis act covers cannabis.
You can be acquitted of 1 charge while charged with the others
Willing blindness: you are supposed to inquire about the nature of a delivery you are driving if the package seems suspicious.
4(1) Possession, "Simple possession": to prosecute evidence needed: knowledge/willful blindness that substance in your possession and knowledge/willful blindness that it is a controlled substance named in the cdsa and measure of control/consent to their possession Law requires measurable quantity of drug, ex residue in a bag If there are drugs in your car and you are the driver or passenger, it cannot be the only reason for a conviction. Possession - drugs don't have to be on you. Willful blindness - you ought to have know you have the drugs in your possession Knowledge of your possession is proven by it's location (hidden or in sight), whether police have statements by you or others. Schedule 4 substances and lower cannot be found guilty of simple possession, but can be found guilty of other offences like trafficking
Double doctoring/ 4(2) obtaining a practitioner: asked dr for prescription or drugs without disclosing that info about the drug that u received in the last 30 days. Both for personal usage and for dealing. Uncommon charge.
5(1) Drug trafficking, trafficking in substance: proof must prove that you did 1 of the following or that you offered to do one of the following: - Selling drug or prescription: incl if the sale is not completed. - helping or encouraging someone to buy/sell. Bringing the buyer to the seller and if without this help the sale would never have taken place. Introducing a potential buyer to a seller is sometimes prosecutable depending on the judge. It sounds like it might only be an offense if accused works for the dealer and arranges the meeting between buyer and seller, but not clear. - giving drugs for free or for "free" is still trafficking - cannot administer illegal drugs even if asked too - if transporting home for personal consumption only, simple possession. But if or the purposes of sharing with friend, roommate then trafficking. Exceptions: inside safe injection site for drug checking purposes. Buying doesn't seem to be trafficking. Selling a prescription (the paper) is trafficking - Max sentence is life
5(2) Possession for the purposes of trafficking: simple possession + purpose/intent of trafficking. Large quantity helpful to prosecutor but not required. Presence of measuring, packaging equipment, multiple bagged quantities, large amounts of cash, notebooks can be evidence. - Max sentence is life
Drug trafficking: sale, gift, administrating drug, transport of drug.
Case study: Nat brought cdsa drug to share with client at motel. Client overdoses and Nat has to call 911. Police show up too. She admits to cops that she bought the drugs and that he asked for them so the cops know it was his idea. She is convicted of trafficking.
6(1) Import (or export) and 6(2) possession for the purpose of import (or export): all must be proven: Bought drugs/organized their entry into Canada Knowledge/willful blindness/recklessness that controlled substance Intention to import the substance Bring drugs or organize their entry into the country: happens as soon as drug enters/leaves any country and continues until drug arrives at final destination in Canada in a person's possession. If in transit through mtl and Toronto offence has take place in both locations. You don't have to have been personally transporting the drugs or even present at the place of entry to be charged. If police intercept the drugs in transit, irrelevant to defense. Crown doesnt have to prove you know the precise nature of the drug. Recklessness: ex accused caught with 2 bottles of wine that contain dissolved cocaine, since the cocaine amount was large, the producer prob wouldn't give this bottle to a blind courier. Behaviour following importation may provide convincing evidence of participation in offence: meeting with ppl, receiving calls of short duration at late hours, coded language by accused+accomplices, using public telephones to talk to "accomplices" despite owning a cell. After drug arrives to final destination, other ppl cannot be prosecuted for "possession for purposes of import" Police are specifically looking for fake suitcases on flights being carried by women 30s-40s
7(1) Production of substance, 7.1(1) possession, sale, etc for use in production or trafficking: production - manufacturing, harvesting, growing, etc. Offence includes offering to produce drug Evidence must prove you have some control over location/operation of production: cannot be convicted for simply being in a place of production. Police usually do detailed surveillance against accused first. Warrants for interception of private communication, track/trace (surveillance device on car), garbage searches, search warrants Police usually find out when purchase of large or suspicious purchases that are commonly used in drug production.
If police are at your house for a DV investigation and they see a baggie of what looks like heroin, can result in arrest.
Possession means: you have it on your personal possession, you know a friend is holding it for you, you know that you have hidden it somewhere. If your friend is holding a cdsa drug for you and they know it's cdsa drug, then you both are in possession. If the cops raid your grandma's house and you stores cdsa drugs there, she will not be convicted.
Knowledge of the drug: you just have to know it's a controlled substance, not what it is specifically to be convicted.
Judges sentence more harshly depending on drug type. Ex if there are current anti meth events or media, worse sentence.
Possession of methadone/opioid agonist treatments (OAT): - Health care providers don't need permission to prescribe, administer, sell/provide methadone to patients. Patients need a ordeprescription. To own methadone must be a patient or health care provider basically.
Initial meeting with a judge after arrest is a bail hearing.
To get bail: - better odds if minor crime - have $ via bail or signing a "recognizance" that says you'll pay bail. Get both back later on. A "surety" (friend) can pay for you. - fixed address that isn't a homeless shelter - ties to the community - family, legal job, studies, community engagement - proof of how will support self legally - having a friend reserve you a spot in rehab - indigenous
Conditions can prevent you from owning a cell phone.
Causing death by criminal negligence and manslaughter for giving drugs to someone who overdosed. rare. Can be convicted if you and a friend are shooting up together and you shoot them up at their request and then they die. Accidentally bringing a drug that contains fentanyl and your friend dies. Harsher punishment if accused is much older than decreased or if deceased is not much of a drug user.
Crown can withdraw some charges but keep others.
A guilty plea only may help improve sentencing. If pleading guilty better to do it before the trial.
Didn't type up schedule 1-7 drugs pg 38, 39 Schedule 1: opioids, meth, Adderall, ghb, methadone, MDMA Schedule 2: synthetic cannabinoids, most cannabis is regulated by the cannabis act now. 3: shrooms, lsd 4: zolpidem, steroids, benzodiazepines 5: not in the book if it exists 6: ingredients to manufacture drugs 9: manufacturing equipment ex machines to fill pills
Selling other medications like idk ibuprofen could be a civil matter where the gov might issue a large fine against you and failure to pay the fine results in conviction.
Sentencing - court determines punishment, ex prison, fines
If your lawyer and prosecutor agree on a specific sentence during a guilty plea, judge will most likely accept that, but judge doesn't have to.
Types of sentences: un/conditional discharge, fine, suspended sentence with probation and conditions (ex community service, rehab) imprisonment in institution or in community.
Being guilty can have other effects like travel ban to USA.
Sentencing considers: type and context of offence, circumstances of arrest, criminal record/priors, first charge for this kind of offence, current situation, level of detail and assurances in rehab plan, are there victims, prosecuted as summary or indictable offense. Unofficially judge considers bias like being anti-sex worker.
Prosecuted for either indictable offense or summary offense. sometimes the law decides which, sometimes prosecutor does. Determines max sentence and severity judge will serve.
Indictable offense - more serious. Some crimes are always indictable. Summary - less serious
Aggravating factors - reasons court gives harsher sentence: - Not having a drug addiction at the time of offence - priors - commited offence for financial gain - breach of trust - etc
Mitigating factors - reasons court gives better sentence: - guilty plea - been in drug rehab if had drug addiction at the time of the crime (get letters from case workers) - age - remorse - community involvement - etc
Mandatory minimum sentences, Mms.
Since 2012 Mms higher and a bunch of drugs moved up in schedule
Gladue report: - optional for accused. - affects all parts of court - prepared by some org - for anyone who identifies as indigenous
Impact of race and culture assessment IRCA: - A few provinces have this - gladue for black ppl - judge can legally ignore it - exists bc black ppl have faced a lot of adversity
Stimga = negative stereotypes
Ppl who use drug usually get worse treatment from justice system.
If you participate in a treatment program pre sentencing, it can reduce your sentence oand delay legal proceedings. Court needs to recognize its value and legitimacy. Court can also force you to attend a program of their choosing which can be like prison-lite. You can propose your plan to the court.
Special tribunals in mtrl regulate the provincial court treatment programs.
Many sex workers gain access to new resources and opportunities which can allow them change their condition and protect themselves. Anti sex worker laws deny them of this and their agency.
Drug addicts and sex workers are constantly stimgatized especially if they do sex work and use drugs.
Sex workers: Try to represent as a victim for a reduced sentence: - apologize and show remorse about your sex work - talk about how you're a victim of sex work - allow the court to paint your sex work as all the problems in your life - make no claim about the useful of sex work in your life - be poor, get exploited by clients/pimps - when the court tells you to stop talking to other sex workers, drug users, clients, do it.
If you are between 12-17 YO: - youth criminal justice act or director of youth protection applies to you, 1 or the other, you can sorta pick - "very serious" crimes you're prosecuted as an adult, so public criminal record - if an adult works with you on a crime it worsen the adults sentence
Police can charge you for possession of a weapon of they find a scissors or pocket knife
If police find you with a gun, they can easily give you 3 yrs. Weapons bans are 10 yrs.
Immigrants: - try to get either type of discharge (conditional or unconditional), that's the same as not guilty in immigration law. - refugees without Canadian citizenship can be deported - if you don't have PR, a hybrid offense or 2 summary offenses can get you deported - PR: receive a 6 month sentence or guilty of a crime that has max sentence of 10 yrs. - with an expired visa, cops database doesn't have that kind of info, but they could call Canadian Border Safety Agency (CBSA)
worse charges for drug trafficking if offence happens near school or other place frequented by minors, or on correctional facility grounds, or in a gang, setting traps, using someone else's building, creating hazards in a residential neighborhood
Indictable offence usually don't have fines associated with them.
Cannabis act (CA) - distribution and trafficking are the same thing - having on possession for sale is illegal - public place: public has assess too and any vehicle located in public view - generally refers to dried cannabis, usually 30g or equivalent
Illicit cannabis is illegally obtained cannabis. It doesn't have the gov stamp of approval
Some ppl give a fake name to cops bc risk of being identified is worse than the risk of obstruction. If you give police a fake address, they might mail court papers to that address and you won't be able to receive them. If you give the cops a fake name and need to retract it, try to say it's a "nickname but my legal name is x"
Recording cops: - legal for you to record cops unless property owner has rules against it, recording actually does interfer with the investigation - police may tell you that it's illegal. Might charge with obstruction, or say you're breaking like privacy, take your recording device, demand you erase recording, say they're seizing your phone bc it contains evidence - if police seize your phone, they could find incriminating evidence to charge you or someone else with another crime
Frisking: - cops can legally if u are arrested. Only supposed to if they thinking you have a dangerous item on you and are a threat to someone's safety. If you get upset this increases the odds they'll search you. If they are searching you for weapons not supposed to search you for other things like drugs, phones, tattoos etc. They can use this to search for needles to identify you as a drug user - searching you for evidence of the crime they say you committed - if you're temporarily detained/being questioned same thing - if you give them permission to search you or your property, they will. To prevent this say loudly "I do not consent to the search" and "je ne consens pas a une fouille" (jeh neh koh sehn pah ah oon foo yeh) - if an illegal search results in say drug charges, the drug charges could be withdrawn - if unlawful arrest (ex police brutality) then the subsequent search might be illegal
Seizures: - can seize items in a warrant. Ask to see and read the warrant. - if the warrant is to search a location, must have that address, specific area they can search, and list items theyre searching for - ask cops for a copy of the report identifying the seized items and where the items are being held Can seize items without warrant if they think it's related to a crime, ex: - weapons that may have been used in the offense, Items that provide evidence like phones, scales, note books, items obtained through criminal offenses like money from drug selling, They can seize items before any arrests While you're detained they will frequently go through your phone Note down: everything they seize, when, whom, where you were at the time. Careful about "obstructing" police while you do this, record officer name, patrol car number, badge number and other identitying info, knowing seizing location helpful for trying to get your things back, if an item is evidence you won't get it back til the end of the case, if it's considered proceeds of a crime you'll likely never get it back, illegal things you will never get back
While detained, you can try asking a guard or lawyer if you can use your phone to get phone numbers, usually they'll say no. Guards will be able to read your phone while this happens. Memorize the numbers of potential sureties.
Don't have incriminating evidence about yourself or your associates
Drug use equipment: - can legally distribute unused drug equipment - if you have drugs on you, having sterile drug equipment can be used as additional evidence against you - may still be seized by security - If you're hanging out with a drug users and you're searched and they find sterile needles, they may then search your companion
Being detained: - physical detention is like being cuffed - psychological - they tell you you're not free to leave/act like you can't leave - can detain for: you're connected to a crime, being a witness, victim, breaking a bylaws, warrant however discretionary power means they might not for a warrant, being present at a raid - technically don't have to identify yourself, but police will likely arrest you for obstruction - police have to tell you why
Being stopped and questioned: - just bc you are in the area a crime took place, doesn't mean they can stop and question you legally unless you match suspect description. They will anyway if they want
Warrants apply country wide
Arrested: - cops must tell you what you're being arrested for - they'll let you go with an "appearance notice" that may include conditions - you'll receive a "summons" in the mail is really an appearance notice - keep you in detention for a few days until a judge sees you - If you have kids, get a criminal lawyer and family law lawyer - if you're an immigrant criminal lawyer and immigration lawyeexpert - arrest warrant: must have name of person to arrested
You can negotiate conditions, like if banned from an area but have dr appointments there. Lawyer can do this.
If cops question you or tell you to go with them: - ask "am I free to leave? Am I being detained or arrested" if unclear ask again, if still unclear make motions to leave and leave if they don't stop you - if detained: "what am I being detained for?" - if arrested: "what am I being arrested for?" -- you have the right to ask and to speak to a lawyer - technically illegal for them to detain you due to trying to bring you to a shelter or rehab etc
Police legally have to wear badge number and name tag and have to identify themselves if you ask them to
After abusive police interaction, note down: - when, where event happened - held anywhere? Conditions of where you were held? Location? - officer names, numbers, car numbers - what was searched? When, where, how did it happen? - who was searched? How and where were they searched? Name and badge number of cop. - Dmges? take pics - who was detained? We're they offered an interpreter of needed? Do they speak the same language as the officer? - give all the info to lawyer
If cop grabs you and you pull away they might try to charge you with assault of an officer
Prep for dealing with police: - anyone in my party break a law? Any warrants? Youth protection involved with anyone? - if we're stopped by police, are we all staying silent, all giving the same info? Other plan? - are cops targetting me, the neighborhood? - if cops targetting someone else, can I walk away? - is my hangout area heavily surveilled? Is my party heavily surveilled? - if I have id, does it reflect the name I'm gonna tell the cops? What happens if an officer shows up who knows me? - how to respond to cops if my kids are with me? - condition breach? - am I carrying anything arrestable? Plan if they search me? - are all my incriminating items hidden from plain view? - what police consequences is most harmful to me? What am I most concerned about? What am I willing to do to avoid these? - can I role play with someone?
Good Samaritan overdose act (Good Sam law): - If someone is overdosing and you call 911, police legally aren't supposed to arrest you or anyone else there, incl overdosee for simple possession or simple possession condition breaches - everything else they can arrest you for. And they are known to use the opportunity to extract arrests Consider: throwing away/hiding your illegal drugs, tell others there you called 911 so they can leave, tell dispatch that area is safe so maybe police won't come, should I leave and get someone else to stay or leave a note on the overdosees,
Security guards, transit officers, etc: - no legal requirement to speak with them - they can citizens arrest you physically legally if they see you doing it - cannot legally search you - can legally use reasonable force to remove you from a building - Montreal public transit security can become special constables easily and can detain and arrest ppl suspected of criminal activity on mtl transit. Can access police database. - All public transit security can fine and issues tickets related to their public transit. You're required to provide them name, address, dob
Driving a vehicle: - if you are driving, police have more authority, like asking for ID, breathalyze - police can stop vehicles bc: see a driving violation, believe the vehicle is related or a crime, routine police blockade for like drunk drivers passing - often use license plates to determine if the car was stolen or a getaway vehicle or whatnot - police pulling over ppl in high crime areas for no other reason is illegal - important to not have knife, drug residue on plain view - if you're too shaky, pink eyes, they know lol in the car as drug dealers, they're more likely to find you suspicious - after arresting driver, they can legally search your vehicle if it's related to why they arrested you, ex they arrest you for drugs and then they can then search the vehicle for more drugs - more likely to search your vehicle if you're wearing a bulletproof vest - can search the vehicle legally for "safety", they see you have weapons charges and then they search the vehicle or if they have reason to fear for imminent evidence loss, fear imminent threat to someone's safety - legally easier for police to search your car then pat you down. - police can only legally ask driver for ID unless they turn the stop into an investigation in which case they can then ask everyone in the vehicle for ID - sleeping in your vehicle: take keys out of ignition, sleep in the back. Police may still harrass you and say it's in relation to criminal charges
Investigations: - begin for any reason, even via anonymous tip line calls - often police with surveill and if they see suspicious activity, they get a warrant
Residential location: - greatest privacy from police here legally, however: if owner unknown, abandon, frequented by marginalized ppl, police more likely to invade - when can they enter your house: generally police cannot enter without a warrant unless the person who answers the door consents, if they think someone inside is about to commit a crime or that a crime is in progress, in hot pursuit and the runner enters the house, if they think someone inside's life is in danger - if you don't consent to them entering say: I do NOT consent to you entering, je ne consens pas a ce que vous rentrez (jeh neh Kon sen pah ah seh voo rehn-tray) - can get warrants to enter for unpaid tickets, money owed to revenue Quebec - police search your home when: someone being arrested there and police think something is a danger to other potential occupants, police fear imminent lose of evidence, medical emergencies (Medicare card, suicide notes) - if they see something suspicious (drugs, scales, large sums of cash) in plain view (from your door, or anything they see if you allow them to enter. Even if you let them in, they're not supposed to search your house or roam to other rooms) they can seize it. - an arrest warrant isn't enough to search a place
Hotel/motel: for your room, generally same rules as residential, but a bit less privacy - for public areas, no privacy benefits - if cops get keys from hotel staff or permission from hotel staff they'll use that to enter your room - often will say the housekeeping staff saw something suspicious
House keepers: - if they see drugs, lots of condoms, paraphernalia, sex work publications or drug publications they may contact police. There is an increasing trend for this happening under the guise of human trafficking prevention esp if you're a marginalized/racialized women who uses drugs. - they are allowed to enter your room
Hospital: - usually won't provide the cops with much info unless they have a warrant for a patient. Sometimes even will not let cops into your hospital room - will contact law enforcement. Usually have low threshold to attempt to kick out ppl as it relates to arguments, raised voices, disruptions - if you are with a patient, hospital more likely to provide info on you to cops, so careful what info you give cops - as a patient u may have to change clothes and that could lead to dropping suspicious items out of your pocket - if you go to the hospital with a friend, tell them to stfu about providing info about you - bringing a friend can help by taking notes, advocating for you. Ideally your friend isn't know to the cops, can stay calm.
Supervised injection site, SIS: - inside cannot be charged with simple possession. Cannot give to others or administer to others. - staff cannot be charged with trafficking for providing the venue or material facilitating the drug usage. Same with staff checking drugs, which would normally be trafficking - police can do whatever outside of the building. If arrested for simple possession, could tell lawyer you were on your way to the sis/on your way back home - if you are investigated in relation to a sis, make sure your lawyer speaks with the sis bc your lawyer prob doesn't know the basics of the sis. - to use a sis, usually don't need to provide real name or info. If you give your real info, easier for medical staff at hospital to look you up if needed
Speaking to police: - if arrested cops suppose to stop asking you questions once you request to speak to a lawyer, but they will often still ask you questions anyway. After you speak to a lawyer they have the right to question you again - they will attempt to provoke you into speaking - interrogator will ask random questions to build rapport (ex personal life, interests). Will often promise or claim to help you if you talk to them - legally can lie about most things. Ex evidence, other ppl's statements, "if you leave now we can't help you later", "if you cooperate now you will get a more lenient sentence". - don't react to their questions
Initial appearance in from of a judge before bail hearing: - you appear before a judge within a day. If it's a weekend or holiday then after that. Have a lawyer come with you. This is when you plea guilty or not guilty - can try to exchange 1 release condition for another, discuss this with your lawyer beforehand - if you receive a fine, some organizations can you get a payment plan. Community service can also be used to pay off a fine.
Bail hearing - you can schedule the meeting with a judge at a later date to give you more time to prepare for how to make bail - usually happens within 3 days - prepare in advance how to get released on bail - Prosecutor will often argue you shouldn't be released bc: you won't attend your next court date, you pose a risk to the public, public will lose faith or you're released. - your lawyer will likely argue: you have a fixed address (can be friends, family), will obey your bail conditions - sometimes to make bail you need: bail money/recognizance document saying you'll pay latesurety. Surety should have legal job and no criminal record. Show that you have routine, like school, clubs, job, family. Can have someone who ideally does not have a record come testify to your character. Proof of income. Someone to book you a spot in rehab. - if the court takes your passport, photocopy the important pages
Cdsa and cannabis act are frderal criminal laws, but are often prosecuted by provincial/municipal forces
Law reform/Stella: The term decriminalization is getting more widely used and the meaning is recinding. Stella says decriminalization of drugs and sex work is a necessary first step to guarantee human rights. Drug use is not always an illness or problem. Abstinence is not the only way and thinking it's the only way is harmful. Drug sellers should be be categorized as bad ppl. If 1 law is repealed cops will often just target a sigmatized group with a new law. Alternative punishment instead of prison is still not decriminalization, aka Portugal model. For things like cannabis, even tho self possession of an amount is legal, you still can face police surveillance, unwanted police contact, trouble with landlord, etc. Individual prosecution directors, police departments can set guidelines, but those are not related to laws. Guidelines can say more or less punishment.

2023.05.31 19:08 Calm_Salamander_8868 3in1 jackets

Getting ahead for winter next year where I live in North Texas for my kids and school. What’s some good 3in jackets that would keep them warm for the most part mainly going in and to from school that would be rain proof or resistant? I know layers is best, however for getting in and out of the car and during recess that not optimal for them. Any suggestion? It seems everywhere I look has lightweight rain jackets or the puffer types which they have had in the past, but again they don’t serve the purpose. Curious what parents of kids up in the northern states do.

Just frustrated, my dispatch center in Texas has 12 positions but we can barely keep 8 people working. And those who do work are constantly calling in sick. Mast of the applications we get are from people who aren’t eligible for the job. What happens when no one shows up for a shift? It’s just crazy as hell.

SM 25% match days delayed?
Got this message from SM that earnings from 25% match days (including from last week) may be delayed because of the US holiday this past Monday. I'm not sure why they couldn't have prepared for this? Memorial Day is a major bank holiday every year and obviously affected why they scheduled the contest week in such a way. Luckily I'm still set on my bills due tomorrow, but what if I was depending on that bonus after such slow traffic??

2023.05.31 19:06 driz_ap Landlord Fines

Hello, I’m renting with two roommates and we’re in a situation where we did not sign a lease, and I think the landlord wants to fine me. I have some questions about this, but first context.
I didn’t see any rules about posting in this subreddit - so please delete this post if it breaks any rules or comment with your guidance.
I’m living with two roommates in the United States - I’m calling them 1 and 2. We’re in our 20’s. 1 took out a loan with their parents for the home, and invited 2 and me to live in with them.
We never signed a of lease or any legally binding agreement with 1 and their parents. We pay rent via venmo, which is relatively low for the area and i’m quite happy with it.
1’s dad is not impressed with how we’ve been keeping the yard. We have a mower with gas (i bought the gas with my own money), and it hasn’t been mowed for about 5 weeks. The grass in the yard is sparse, it’s a dry yard with several dead/dry spots, and it was maybe ankle-height at the tallest. Nothing out of the ordinary compared to the neighbors on our street, and we don’t have an HoA.
1’s dad came over unannounced and mow our yard on Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. I was leaving for a wedding, and had come outside to pack my car and say hello on my way out. He was not happy, and 1 told me verbally that their father plans to fine us for his work.
I had been out of town for 2 consecutive weeks of the 5 weeks where the lawn was not mowed. 1 is unable to do the work due to a leg injury. I’m not sure why 2 didn’t get around to doing it. I’m not trying to point any fingers, we all could have done better. I’m planning to be maliciously compliant from now on.
I’m looking for a second opinion. If I don’t pay the fine, and 1’s parents decide to take legal action, what potential consequences am I facing if we don’t have a lease agreement? I am moving out of this house in about 45 days, and don’t mind putting up with 1’s angry parents but don’t want to be taken to small claims court or pay 1’s dad for his own decision to come over and mow our lawn on a holiday weekend. I’m not sure what the fine will be, but let’s say it will be $100 minimum.
What would you do in this situation? What advice can you offer? Thanks in advance!

We go back to court in 2 weeks and I let me ex watch our son unsupervised. I talk to AOG they said it won’t effect the court order but I still feel she doing something sneaky. Plus I feel like she wants revenge because I went no contact and u know that causes narc injuries. What can I say to her to turn the situation around?

2023.05.31 19:04 ChraveFan WORST PARENTS

Saw someone do an best parent post so now lets discuss the worst of the worst. Think the top worse for me will be Scout's mum, Tina, and Danny's mum, Marie. Tina neglected her kids, basically sold her daugther for money with the marriage and went on holiday abandoning her teenager daugther to look after her toddler son. Marie totally abandonded her son, chose a violent criminal over him and used him to try to or get money off. Also let Vinny go after her kid.
Worst dads properly Jimmy Grainger, he was useless, Chlo ended up in two accidents in his care and he didnt even pay child support yet complained he wanted to see his kids. Plus Izzie died and he let his daugthers be raised by an random man he barely knew. Also Reynold, Sambuca's dad. Attacked Matt for fostering her, robbed from him, tried to get Rose's kids and was just an awful person.
Who do you think was the worse? i have properly missed someone I didn't even think about.

2023.05.31 19:01 AllThingsWorn The Story of My Tights Fetish/Addiction

The Story of My Tights Fetish/Addiction
So as you all know I’m Tightsguyyorks, I have been wearing tights pretty much all my life. When I say that, not since birth but from a very young age. My wearing started when I was 5. One day I was upstairs playing in my room with my cars (like most little boys do) and I went into the bathroom. I saw a pair of my mums work tights she had forgotten to move. To this day I still remember the colour. They were barely black and 10 denier sheer. I'm not gonna go into detail about mum and what her job was.
So there they were, I was curious about wearing them so I picked them up and ran into my room as fast as I could. I took my socks off and bottoms and put them on. As soon as I slipped them on I was hooked on the feeling.
Anytime I was in my room I put them on and hid them so they couldn't be found. This carried on for a few years. One day my sister was gifted some clothes and amongst them were some black opaque tights. Around 40 or 60 denier. I just had to have them.
When no one was looking I took them and hid them in my room. If I wasn't wearing the sheers in my room, I was wearing the opaques up until starting secondary school. In secondary school, my wearing carried on but not as often as with getting older more responsibilities came my way.
When I was babysitting my sister and she was in bed I could wear them for an hour. This went on until I left school and my wearing stopped for a few years. I wanted to carry on but it wasn't possible.

Wearing Tights Whilst in a Relationship

Fast forward a few years, I was now in a long-distance relationship and to start with I was still not wearing as she didn't know about it. We hit a rough patch and when I went to visit her I was staying alone. I went shopping one day in the local Tesco and I walked past the tights and without looking I picked a 5 pair pack up. Barely black 10 denier sheer. I carried on shopping and went back to where I was staying. I was alone for the night feeling low and I put a pair on.
That feeling came back, the addiction for tights was back stronger than ever. Sadly that week my relationship ended and I came home but my relationship with tights got stronger.
Every day after work I'd put a pair on until they laddered and eventually I ran out. I had to have more so I plucked up the courage to go and buy some. I'd buy 5 pack sheers from Asda then Tesco then back to Asda until I almost got caught in the store. One day I panicked and picked some 60 denier opaques up and some 10 denier sheers and rushed them through the self-checkout. The rush was amazing but I decided to go late at night when there's less chance of being caught.
One day I was going to work on nights and put a pair on under my work trousers. Black sheer from Asda and it felt amazing. No one knew and it gave me such a rush. I carried on doing it and day after day night after night. So one day I met my now ex-wife. Again, I subconsciously stopped wearing tights when I was with her at home.
After a few years, she moved in with me and my wearing stopped unless she stayed at her mum and dads for a night. My curiosity got the better of me one night when I found her naughty outfits and decided I was gonna try one on with my tights. My collection by this point was a small 30ish pairs. It felt amazing. Now the sad part is I could never tell her then we got married and I still wore them in secret.

When My Wife Found Out I Was Wearing Tights

One day I was talking to a friend in the same position and I fell asleep. My phone went off with a message and she saw it and woke me up. I had to let her read my messages and then she made me tell her what she had read. At that point, we were married a week and she told me it was her or the tights because guys wearing tights is 'disgusting'. So I chose her and the wearing had to stop.
We found our own place and moved out of my mums. I threw most of my tights away and it killed me. I kept a few pairs though, about 10 pairs of various denier opaques and sheers. I found a way around it so I could wear in secret and did that, it worked and she didn't know.
I set up an account on a well known social media for sharing pictures to show my tights off and I got braver and started trying her shoes and clothes when she wasn't in the house. Through that page, I bought my first pair of worn tights and my addiction started again. They were amazing. I had to have more so I kept buying when I could. I kept buying from stores too and hiding them in my clothes or in my things in the cupboard in the bedroom.
Fast forward again and sadly my marriage broke down. I'm not going into details about that but all I will say is she told my secret about wearing tights to everyone around where I live and posted it all over her social media, even tried using it in the divorce.

My Crossdressing Alter Ego

Anyway, I lived in my car for 2 weeks and then moved back to mums (still here now). I started buying tights again from anywhere I could. One day I got curious and I was alone, mum was on holiday and I ordered tights off the Internet. Since then I've not been into a store to buy again. All my tights come from 2 sites. I got curious about crossdressing so after a few years back at mums again she was on holiday, I started looking and bought some clothes online and from then my alter ego was born Sara.
Since then I've bought a few more clothes. I've lost count of the amount of tights and 2 pairs of shoes. I've been on another selling site that no longer exists and been ripped off and messed around so when I found All Things Worn I thought I would try one more time and if I don't like it I will leave but I love it here. I couldn't leave here ever. I'd like to say thank you for reading and if you have any questions drop me a message.

2023.05.31 19:00 Future_Vehicle_8307 22 Blue in 2022: 'THE QUICK LIST'

22 Blue in 2022: 'THE LIST'

Build Supermajorities of Democrats in the US House and US Senate

Here’s “22 Blue in 2022: ‘A Quick List’”:
  1. Florida 2. Ohio 3. Kansas 4. North Carolina 5. Kentucky 6. Arizona7. South Carolina 8. Georgia 9. Texas 10. Michigan 11. Nevada 12. Pennsylvania13. Missouri 14. Wisconsin 15. Iowa 16. Arkansas 17. Oklahoma 18. Indiana19. Colorado 20. Alabama 21. South Dakota 22. North Dakota
The 2022 Midterm Election is the most important midterm of our lifetime.Democrats must behave as if our lives depend on this midterm, because our future depends on the outcome.
”We the people” must deny the Republican party political power at every level of government for decades to come “in order to create a more perfect union.” With 48 States having some statewide contest(s), November 8th, 2022 is our best chance the Democrats will get to do that for the rest of this decade, at least.
”The List” encourages the election of a Democratic Supermajority in the US Senate in 2022. This is the best chance we will have to create a Democratic Supermajority in both Chambers of Congress for the remainder of this decade. This midterm could be a devastating loss for the democrats if good patriots ignore this election. If Americans of good conscience band together instead, we could could begin the exile of the Republican party from power, not for years, but for decades to come.
“The List” is a set of suggestions about where to focus collective activism today.
The election of Democratic Supermajorities to both chambers of the US Congress is the best outcome we can strive towards in the 2022 Midterm Election for many reasons. Among them: breaking the decade of gridlock in Congress, supporting President Biden’s agenda, and his re-election in 2024. My personal favorite is that this could commence the decades-long political banishment of the GOP from power, which the Republican Party so richly deserves.
The Republican party has proved itself treasonous on many levels. They are traitors to Humanity by supporting Trump. Traitors to the Nation for supporting Putin. Traitors to the government and betrayers of the constitution through their apologies for the 1/6/21 insurrection. To safeguard our country and the world, we must block the Republicans from power at the ballot box, at all levels of government, for at least a generation.
Political game playing may be inevitable among humans. Change the numbers, and then change the rules, if not the game. Cynical refusal to play at this time in history cedes power to NAZIs manipulated by Active Measures. That is a surrender to crypto fascism, not radical thinking, mere cynicism, or hipsterism.
In 2022, Patriots must unify to crush the Republican Party at the ballot box. We can defeat them in every State, at every level. We need the biggest turnout at the voting booth of any Midterm ever. We need to raise more money for candidates and organizations than we did during the entire 2020 campaign season if we are to accomplish this. We need to do this in the next six months.
This is what a “Blue Tsunami” REALLY looks like.
Electing a Democratic Supermajority in Congress is our hope for the future and retribution for America’s enemies. “22 Blue in 2022” is a roadmap to the beginning of that journey. “22 Blue in 2022” is our war plan. ”22 Blue in 2022” is our electoral battle cry. “22 Blue in 2022” is a way forward out of gridlock, a way to non-violently thwart those who would poison the body politic with their hate.
If we don’t try this hard in 2022, Trump will go unpunished and metastasize by 2024.
Resist In Power, my sisters, my brothers, and my others.
Resist Together, and elect a Congressional Supermajority in 2022!

2023.05.31 18:58 Infinite_Ad_9260 CCP re-education camps vs US mental health system

In the US, based entirely on hearsay evidence from an alleged mental health professional, you can be tortured, detained, assaulted and forced into a locked psychiatric facility, where you are forced to read only the Daily Bread, which is a right winged Christian propaganda booklet. No concept of legal counsel or rights whatsoever is provided, as admitted by staff behind locked doors. In my case for example, they didn't give a rights booklet but lied in the medical chart that they gave a rights booklet. It is also normal to play Christian propaganda through the speakers and in group "therapy" sessions where attendance is mandatory or stays will be increased/you will be restrained. OhioMHAS, a state regulatory agency confirmed to me that they find this acceptable, as non Christians may restrain themselves in a portion of the hospital, however, whether this portion exists is questionable. Giving blood is mandatory upon hearsay without any informed consent or court order upon the patient, in violation of international law. Drugs are routinely forced as evidence for its necessity is fabricated.
In China, there was a time when Uyghurs were being similarly detained in re-education camps. Similar to the US, drugs are often given to the victims. However, in China this was a one time security measure and detentions are dwindling. In addition, international watchdogs like Amnesty International will condemn Chinese detention camps. Unlike the US, however, more literature may be afforded than just the propaganda booklets. Uyghurs are recognised as persecuted and thus there is no stigma in most of the western world against them talking about their experiences being tortured. However in the US, if tortured, the stigma follows you regardless of which country you're in, as you will never be believed. Lastly, in China, being detained in a re-education camp is unlikely to bring upon you criminal charges or permanent incarceration, whereas in the US, courts have ruled that hearsay may be used to indefinitely commit victims (Addington v Texas 1979)
