On June 3rd, 2014, the Serrano family was having difficulty with a young female family member who suffers from a mental illness and depression. Yanira Serrano-Garcia, 18, had apparently gone off of her medication and became agitated and hard to control.
“[Yanira] wanted to be normal. She wanted to stop taking her medication, and I get it. Sometimes when my feet hurt I just want to be normal. I don’t want to take pills. I get her…all we want is justice,” said a friend of Yanira’s during a community march.
“Sadly, they mistook her for something she didn’t do, and a cop decided to get his gun out when he could have gotten out his taser, his pepper spray,” she said.
“She has special needs and we just want answers,” said Yanira’s brother, Tiny Serrano. “Who are we supposed to call now when we need help when who is supposed to help us is killing our kids?”

If you become interested in a subject because of a fandom, that’s okay!! Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Want to play a sport because of a sports anime? Go ahead! Want to become a manga artist because of all those BL animes? Go for it! Want to become a terrorist because of Zankyou no Terror? Well actually
#CommonCore This is how the Government gets the unemployment rate.
What. The. Fuck. Is. This. Shit.
what “progressive” education in america is turning into.

Fun fact about Common Core: I had to be a test subject for the new math assessment and the questions were such bs that everyone in the room just wrote “NO IDEA” or “FUCK THIS SHIT” in the answer space.
Ms Smith is looking to help her school buy a new computer lab. She has $100. She could donate it directly to the school, but a cereal company is running a sweepstakes for a set of computers. Gathering the six letters of the company’s name from specially-marked cereal and granola bars will *enter her into* a raffle for the computers.
Part A. Each box of cereal contains one letter and costs $3.50. There are six letters Ms Smith must gather. Calculate the likelihood she will gather all six letters.
Part B. Ms Smith ran a computer simulation of possible outcomes. Compare your data with hers.
Part C. Granola bars cost $2.50. Calculate how many granola bars and boxes of cereal Ms Smit could buy with her $100.
Part D. Should Ms Smith donate her money to the school directly or spend it on the sweepstakes?
(Note that they never give you a pool size for the sweepstakes, or a reason why a math test is asking you about the morality of gambling, or a billion other things that arE KINDA IMPORTANT)
