We didn't write about the GOP debate this week because, frankly, most of us were mortified into absolute stillness. HOWEVER, I mentioned it in Open Thread (so feel free to talk about it over there!) and a ton of other things have gone down this week that you might want to comment on, including:

Nine police officers brutally attacked a black teenager for "jaywalking." [The Guardian]

US and Russian Defense Chiefs have met to discuss Syria conflict. [Washington Post]

Donald Trump is under fire for agreeing to "look into" plans to force Muslim Americans into training camps. [NY Mag]

Refugees barred from Hungary are now traveling to Croatia and face over 50,000 land mines on their journey. [Buzzfeed]

The View lost two major advertisers and faced the twitter of thousands of nurses for mocking Miss Colorado's nursing career. [Jezebel]

Rick Santorum likened Kim Davis to a victim of the Columbine massacre. [Raw Story]

Ninth grader Ahmed Mohamed is transferring schools after being racially profiled, arrested, detained, and interrogated for bringing a clock to school. [CNN]

(And Bristol Palin has some things to say about it [People])

An 8.3 magnitude quake in Chile has left thousands of people without water or electricity. [BBC]

Did we miss anything? I hope/figure you'll let us know.
