Las Vegas Metro Police are now asking for the public’s help after the Mandalay shooting massacre. They specifically want to now if Steven Pollack, the shooter, had accomplices. Axon is a lead maker of police body cameras. They are now expanding to include Axon Citizen, a software that organizes and maintains images and videos provided by the public to help them solve crimes. Soon, the public will be able to upload imagery to Evidence.com which relates to any ongoing investigation, thus reducing the need for police to examine your phone as evidence. It’s an efficient tool and cost-effective reducing police time downloading, printing and transferring to a USB drive. Yet, many people feel privacy is eroding further. Are you in, to help police using this technology—say, particularly with the Mandalay Massacre? And, if someone uploads your picture for an investigation, would you feel guilty by association?

Misandry: This is defined as hatred of men manifested in insults and dismissals of men’s efforts and actions, and the opposite of misogyny. In the case of misogyny, the put downs and insults are well known. For men, it’s more invisible. If men are fair targets for a running commentary of contempt, why is it not talked about much? Some items heard about men: Men only think with their (blank)…A man wouldn’t understand…Men can’t hear the word “No.”…Be a man…Don’t be a wussy…All men are pigs. Patriarchy does hurt women but what about men? Patriarchy demands a rigid standard of not just looks but how men act. Men who dare to not follow this strict standard are faced with criticism. Have you seen or experienced misandry?
