So, Trevor Noah is taking over for Jon and I have a new excuse to push a bunch of his stuff on you.
- If you want to watch his stand up, he has a special on Netflix.
- If you want to know more about his background (and I promise you do, it’s fascinating), there’s a sort of documentary about him on Netflix here.
- Want to know how he came to work for The Daily Show in the first place? Listen to him as a guest on Episode 11 of The Daily Show Podcast. Fun Fact: when Jon first approached him about being a correspondent, he turned the offer down.
- British Panel shows more your style? Check out Trevor on QI, Series K.

Pennsylvania Judge Sentenced For 28 Years For Selling Kids to the Prison System
Mark Ciavarella Jr, a 61-year old former judge in Pennsylvania, has been sentenced to nearly 30 years in prison for literally selling young juveniles for cash. He was convicted of accepting money in exchange for incarcerating thousands of adults and children into a prison facility owned by a developer who was paying him under the table. The kickbacks amounted to more than $1 million.
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has overturned some 4,000 convictions issued by him between 2003 and 2008, claiming he violated the constitutional rights of the juveniles – including the right to legal counsel and the right to intelligently enter a plea. Some of the juveniles he sentenced were as young as 10-years old.
Ciavarella was convicted of 12 counts, including racketeering, money laundering, mail fraud and tax evasion. He was also ordered to repay $1.2 million in restitution.
His “kids for cash” program has revealed that corruption is indeed within the prison system, mostly driven by the growth in private prisons seeking profits by any means necessary.
Why might this not be a HUGE national story and his name not household? I’ll give you one guess what color those kids were.
Stay FUCKING Woke.
We are not crazy. This shit is happening.

There is nothing about this photo that doesn’t make it seem like they aren’t all being held hostage.
I am thinking about saving this picture and posting it as a comment to every stupid facebook post I see for like a week. Not all posts, just the stupid ones. When the poster asks what I mean, I will never answer and just make them wonder.
