    Glad he saved the kitten. Could care less what PETA thinks of it though.

    Yeah, that's the only part that I was like...'eh, you're better off throwing PETA's award in the trash'

    15-year-old killed while shielding Tennessee girls from bullets

    Another bittersweet good entry. The kid died saving others which is far more honorable than some cowardly gang members shooting at a bunch of innocent people.

    Elevator hero wished woman ‘Happy New Year’ before being crushed to death

    Once more someone dies to save someone else's life.

    Been a while since anything was posted in this post. While the circumstances are certainly sad, the way fellow officers and entire communities have rallied behind this family and have shown honor to an officer who protected and served, and sadly lost his life in the line of duty, is heartwarming:

    Police, firefighters gather to cheer on slain officer's son

    and then yesterday... to see the footage of those lining the streets, of giving tribute at the overpasses on the freeway, for the entire 50+ mile procession to the Cemetery....

    Thousands gather to honor slain police officer Doug Barney

    The U.S. Prisoner Who’s Spent The Longest Time In Solitary Confinement Finally Walks Free Today

    This thread doesn't get bumped enough. Though this is technically an abuse of power issue it is better he's finally been given his very long overdue freedom from a corrupt and horribly broken system. He was tried and found innocent three times but they would not release him. Most of his life at this point has been in solitary.

    Student protests growing over gender-equal dress codes

    Figure this can use another story. It's progressive thinking and a sign that the newest generation of people is becoming even more receptive to breaking certain stereotypes and social norms.

    It's also about breaking away from the claim that girls are a "distraction" because of the clothing they are wearing. Short of truly provactive clothing, which would also be barred from the boys, I don't see why they shouldn't be allowed to wear what they want.

    These rules are more about keeping gender seperation and identity distinct than they are about education (which itself is in need of reform, but that is another subject entirely).

    City Takes A Stand Against Treating Homeless Camps Like Crime Rings

    All of the terrible stuff in the news, it's time to post something nice for a change. A step in the right direction is still a step in the right direction.

    Syrian refugees in Canada got housed in same hotel as VancouFur furry convention and the children loved it

    How often do you see a positive, good story about furries that isn't mocking them and at the same time also a positive story about refugees?

    Two Muslim families entrusted with care of holy Christian site for centuries

    Rare to see this kind of cooperation and respect displayed in the media even though I imagine it is more common than people realize.

    It is but it also occured to me how hilarious it is that kids are watching Netflix's Daredevil. Not the kind of show you'd expect them to be watching.

    Haha ya now that I think about it I wouldn't let my daughter watch that till she was halfway through high school. But if my kid was dying of cancer or something, f*** it. Let them get all the Marvel glory they can.

    Redmond cop pays for shoes, diapers that a family tried to shoplift from Target

    http://www.yakimaherald.com/news/cr...cle_de87dd31-e3bb-516d-aad6-f69c5eedceea.html

    It's a shame story's like these don't get national attention but the bad eggs cause national outrage.

    I'm not one for reading the news, but at least once a week I go to the Toronto Star's website, and in the "Your Toronto" section read the articles from "The Fixer".
    He always makes me feel better because he actually tries to get something done about the little things that can make life tougher for everyone.
    He may not be saving lives, but he is saving some people from some really nasty tumbles when he reports on Potholes in bike lanes, loose paving stones on city streets and the like.

    These Black Lives Matters protesters planned a march. The police threw them a cookout instead.
