JetBlue, ever the customer-friendly airline, is making waves once again, after it booted an 18-month-old toddler whose name allegedly appeared on a no-fly list. The family believes they were profiled because of their Middle Eastern heritage and the Transportation Security Administration claims that the girl's name was never flagged. JetBlue offered the generic explanation/non-apology:

We are investigating this particular incident. We believe this was a computer glitch. Our crewmembers followed the appropriate protocols, and we apologize to the family involved in this unfortunate circumstance.

Florida courts continue to show a bass-akward way of dispensing justice -- 31-year-old Marissa Alexander has been sentenced to a 20-year bid for firing "a warning shot" to her husband, who was attacking her during a 2010 incident. Rep. Corrine Brown said the failure of the Stand Your Ground act is based on race:

How many times have they accepted Stand Your Ground if the person that was asking for it was black? You tell me.

Alexander next will appeal the court's decision, with Brown's aid.

In a gross display of injustice, enlisted rape victims have gone public in stating that the military branded them "crazy" and had them discharged. With a lawsuit pending and an upcoming report on CNN, this publicity will hopefully lead to a policy change or a public firing of military officials.
