Gang members were recorded as accounting for 6% of crimes from the end of the 1990s to the early 2000s. The amounts translate to over 350,000 of the over 6 million offenses reported. How many gang related offenses has dropped over the last decade. 1994 demonstrated an all time high of 5.2 per every 1,000 men or 1.1 million. In 2003, the amounts were 1.4 victims per 1,000 individuals or 341,000 victims.

*Although sufferers reported offense as being gang-connected, over 50% of the time this wasn’t true after investigation.
If you see something, say something!
The most troubling of all these stats is the fact that people are filing less complaints. The police can only act when a crime is reported and charges are filed. If you’re formal adoption rite. Witnesses stand gravely by. An of a crime (sexual or otherwise), you MUST speak up. You should not be embarrassed – you are the victim.
No one will think less of you! If on the off chance that someone says or actions in a non supportive way you should cut them out of your life. Individuals like that – HATERS – aren’t worthy of your time! You are so worth more than that!

About the Author (Author Profile)
Jordan Blum is a lifelong nudie and co-founder of Naturist Portal.An Interview with Laura Dodsworth, Originator of ‘Bare Reality’

I first came across Laura Dodsworth’s job through a buddy, back when she was still looking for girls to discuss their stories for a new attempt. The storylines were to be specially all about breasts – do you love them, hate them, why, etc. I was immediately intrigued and definitely needed to see how things progressed.
After two years of committed work, Laura has created a touching, insightful book of 100 photographs and interviews with women about their breasts. I think we absolutely need jobs like this right now. Women’s bodies have long been seen as a commodity, as ornaments, playthings and as sexual objects used to get the male gaze and focus. In regard to breasts, their primary function (breastfeeding) is typically discounted by society and their rendering is mostly geared towards men.
Naked Reality presents the voices and stories that have largely been absent from mainstream media and popular culture. Her novel is one big important way by which women have taken control of the conversation surrounding their bodies. I for one, hope this becomes a trend!
Laura also made a grand attempt to comprise a very varied cast of Choices are restricted, but one idea is to see a bare hot tub for some hydrotherapy that does not demand a bathing suit. That is one of the things I normally suggest to nudies seeing NYC from out of town – when we do not have any events to propose. I wish there were some indoor nudist clubhouse to speak of, but we constantly have to rent / find our own spaces. . She incorporated women of different ages (19 – 101), backgrounds, races and body types. The stories are quite fascinating and truthful. They not only talk about breasts, but about a variety of facets of womanhood.
I hope all my readers will consider purchasing this book through her Kickstarter effort.
