Apparently the records pertaining to the 2006 investigation of Josh Duggar have been destroyed by the Arkansas police. A spokesman told the AP that “Judge Stacey Zimmerman ordered the 2006 offense report destroyed Thursday.” Zimmerman did not return the AP’s request for comment.


Via the AP:

“’The judge ordered us yesterday to expunge that record,’” Lewis said, adding that similar records are typically kept indefinitely. “As far as the Springdale Police Department is concerned, this report doesn’t exist.”

Neither Duggar nor his father, a former state representative, returned calls seeking comment Friday.”

Meanwhile, Arkansas politicians like Mike Huckabee and Senator Bart Hester, continue to rally around parents that hid behind religion in order to protect their abusive son. [Page Six]

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen won’t be reuniting with the cast of Full House. The world’s blandest television show will be brought back to life by Netflix, but alas Michelle Tanner will be absent. The Olsens are too busy raiding the closets Miss Havisham and witches everywhere, designing clothes for their label Elizabeth and James, and swimming in money. There’s no time to show up on set and say, “You got it, dude.” [Us Weekly]

Chris Pratt addressed the rumor that he might be playing Indiana Jones in the upcoming remake. And he did so in a very Chris Pratt way. He wouldn’t say whether or not he was cast, but instead talked about his fandom in that sweet, goofy, man-child thing that he’s really perfected “You don’t want to be the guy who fucks that up,” Pratt said. He also played his humility card: “It’s pretty crazy that people hear that and they don’t go ‘What?!? That fucking dude!’ What has happened in my life that you can see THAT?!” Probably a rhetorical question, but the answer is a mad workout routine and Peter Quill. [Entertainment Weekly]

White privilege is having agents of the state and a presidential candidate protect you despite being an incestuous child rapist. Imagine if this dude wasn’t a white guy. It’s truly baffling so many people are unwilling/unable to have a modicum of empathy for people like Tamir Rice but are more than willing to defend the reputation of people like this.

There is no word in the English language to adequately capture the level of disgusting depravity of evangelical culture.
