1. This is Paris Brown, a 17-year-old British youth who was named Britain’s first youth police commissioner.
2. She was really sad the other day because people saw some of her tweets that she wasn’t proud of.
3. Paris’ £15,000-a-year taxpayer-funded job (about $23,000 a year in U.S. dollars) was an attempt by the Kent police department to reach out to young people.
