The Disturbing Secret Behind An Iconic Cartoon: Underage Sexual Abuse
Rice’s voice rose in frustration. “I know what everybody’s gonna say: Why didn’t you just leave? Well, because this asshole told me when I was 13 that I was special, and I don’t have any self-esteem, so I believe it.”

Byrd is resolute. “He ruined a good bit of my childhood and my early adulthood, gave me PTSD, and forced me to change careers, putting my life 10 years or more behind,” she wrote in an email. In an interview, she said, “He is an abuser in the way that he will pull you into a relationship with him and then tell you who to be and what he wants from you. … Everybody needs to know about it.”

Rice, too, is unequivocal about Kricfalusi: “I became a better artist by working for him,” she said. “I’m not grateful for it. I wish I hadn’t. I wish I were a worse artist now and I didn’t have all this bullshit to deal with.”

“Why do you defend them?”
But more significantly, that first year, I came to know my clients not as “them” or the evil criminals the media and case files made them out to be, but as imperfect people like all of us. In my office, they shared their story with me; they spoke about their family and friends, their hopes and dreams, and their fear of losing everything. By the end of that year, I came to realize that, like me, they too were flawed and, more importantly, they too should not be defined by the worst thing they ever did. At the end of each initial meeting, I would shake their hand and promise I would see them through their case. To me, there has been no greater honor.

Exclusive: YouTube ran ads from hundreds of brands on extremist channels
Ads from over 300 companies and organizations -- including tech giants, major retailers, newspapers and government agencies -- ran on YouTube channels promoting white nationalists, Nazis, pedophilia, conspiracy theories and North Korean propaganda, a CNN investigation has found.
Companies such as Adidas (ADDDF), Amazon (AMZN), Cisco (CSCO), Facebook (FB), Hershey (HSY), Hilton (HLT), LinkedIn, Mozilla, Netflix (NFLX), Nordstrom (JWN) and Under Armour (UA) may have unknowingly helped finance some of these channels via the advertisements they paid for on Google-owned YouTube (GOOGL).
US tax dollars may have gone to the channels, too. Ads from five US government agencies, such as the Department of Transportation and Centers for Disease Control, appeared on the channels.

‘I’m Not a Hero,’ Says Unarmed Man Who Wrested Rifle From Waffle House Gunman - The New York Times
NASHVILLE — The young woman, bandaged and shrouded in bedsheets, began to cry when James Shaw Jr. walked into Trauma Room No. 26 on Monday morning. Then, as the woman’s father drew near, one of Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s surgeons spoke up: “Have you met James? James saved a lot of lives.”
The men embraced, crying, the woman’s father clapping James Shaw Jr. on the back.
“Thank you,” the older man whispered to Mr. Shaw, who a day earlier wrested an assault rifle from a man who opened fire at a Waffle House restaurant just southeast of downtown Nashville early Sunday. The rampage left four people dead.
The police, as well as other customers in the Waffle House, quickly praised Mr. Shaw as a hero for preventing even more bloodshed.
“I’m not a hero. I’m just a regular person,” Mr. Shaw said a few hours after the shooting, a sentiment he repeated in talk show appearances Monday morning.
