No matter who you end up voting for, you can't deny there is some serious hatred for Hillary out there, and it's scary. One of our writers sent this post in, and I agree with her. It also made me hungry for a sandwich. --------------------I'm stunned by the amount of offensively sexist anti-Hillary groups that exist on Facebook and their enormous memberships. Regardless of whether one supports her presidential campaign, shouldn't alarm bells go off when a ... Read More

The story includes interviews with the gang members, like founder, Sampat Pal Devi, "First we go to the police and request that they do something.
