By now, most of us have seen the police dashboard camera footage of Sandra Bland, a 28-year-old Illinois woman, being arrested during a routine traffic stop in Texas on July 10.
When Bland reportedly killed herself in her jail cell three days later, the violent confrontation caught on video was used as evidence of how the police department had failed her.
They were nervous, but determined to be as independent as possible as soon as they could be, and enjoyed a healthy feeling of rebellion, even if it was just Tippexing swear words onto their school bag or inking a pentagram onto their wrist with a cartridge pen.
The You Tube vlogger explosion arrived shortly after I stopped writing for teens full time.
(The chief executive of Penguin has put £10 on Zoella’s book being the Christmas no 1.) Every Mum I know is thrilled about Zoella. ‘We didn’t think our kids would grow up in a world where anyone could seem cool or clever without going on about how much weed they smoke, or taking pictures of their own crotch.’ Zoella is the anti-Miley.

Law enforcement agencies can deny such requests, citing concerns about safety, reputation or an ongoing investigation. “It looks to me like it’s lot more difficult with this legislation to make a video public,” Cooper said. (AP) — North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper, the Democratic challenger for governor, said Tuesday that the state’s new law excluding police camera recordings from the public record goes too far. It allows a person shown in a video to ask police to view the recording, it but not copy it.Our teen readers were passionate, pressured people who wanted to be the best from life, and wanted to be loved at their worst.
