A 5-panel cartoon just gets creepier and creepier as it goes on.

Street harassment has been coming to the forefront of the national conversation for quite some time. The debate goes as such: Most women say they really don't like it. The men who do it say they are really just paying a compliment. Here's what's wrong with that philosophy.


Sure, some dudes say street harassment is just "saying hi" to a "pretty lady" — that it's cordial and part of a polite society. And hey, if the lady finds him pretty too, maybe they'll go out and fall in love. Here's to finding your soul mate, right?

Why should a superintendent get a raise while teachers in the same district struggling to make ends meet see their paychecks flatline — year after year after year?

Teacher Deyshia Hargrave begged the question. Minutes later, she was handcuffed and placed in the backseat of a cop car.

You can watch Hargrave begin speaking about 33 seconds in. The situation starts becoming contentious around 6:35 minutes. Hargrave is arrested at 8:35, and then walked outside in handcuffs and placed in the back of police vehicle. (Story continues below.)
