  • Chinese Men Killing Kids. Sterilization, Infanticide to Blame?

    is that Chinese men have perhaps reached their limit of tolerance to China laws. With female infanticide, is there a shortage of Chinese women to marry? More men than women are alive in China. The natural thing for a man to do is to grow up, get married and raise a family. Chinese men don't have enough women to go around. Once they do find a mate, China law says 1 child only. Coupled with the fact that China "occasionally" puts a sterilization program into affect. Are men hitting the wall of frustration in China?

    Killing and kidnapping at Mexico weddingPublished: May 9, 2010 at 4:47 PM JUAREZ, Mexico, May 9 (UPI) -- Gunmen killed one person at a wedding and kidnapped the groom and three others Friday at a Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, church before escaping, officials say. Chihuahua State Attorney General's Office spokesman Carlos Gonzalez said "It's unclear if this was gang or drug related," CNN reported. The shooting victim, described in his 20s, was shot in the back in the church's parking lot while running from the scene, Gonzalez said. The groom, his brother, uncle and best man were kidnapped, CNN said. In...

    As white supremacist Eugene Terreblanche is buried, the dangerously charismatic Julius Malema threatens the country's future. We are not here to mourn the white supremacist Eugene Terreblanche, whose funeral took place yesterday, but since his name is on the world's lips, let's face the truth: the saddest thing about his murder last weekend is that it obscured an event that casts an infinitely darker shadow. The event took place in Zimbabwe, and involved, as fate would have it, Julius Malema, the ANC Youth League leader whose repeated singing of an old struggle song about shooting Boers is viewed by many...

    The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is set to develop a system that will let machines or robots have visual intelligence similar to humans. DARPA said the program, known as Mind's Eye, should generate the ability for machines to have the perceptual and cognitive underpinnings for recognizing and reasoning about the actions it sees and report or act upon it.

    An investigation into the October 2009 FBI shooting death of a Muslim Imam in Dearborn, Michigan, has entered its fifth month. A coroner’s report which revealed that Luqman Ameen Abdullah (photo above) died flat on the floor of a semi-trailer with his hands cuffed behind his back, after being shot twenty-one times by FBI Agents during a stolen property raid last October 28, has ignited accusations of use of excessive force. Abdullah’s supporters voiced the complaints. The FBI says Abdullah opened fire first. I can confidently tell you that the Department of Justice and the Dearborn police are treading slowly...

Wonder why they don't arrange to have someone shoot Sheriff Joe [Arpaio] and have a plane standing by.

    WASHINGTON, Feb. 14, 2010 – Operation Moshtarak, the Afghan-led initiative to assert government authority in the center of Afghanistan’s Helmand province, completed its first day of clearing operations yesterday, military officials reported. An early morning air insertion of Afghan and international forces before 6 a.m. included helicopters, A-10s, Tornadoes and C-130 aircraft. Afghan soldiers then had at least two meetings with local leaders, one in Nad Ali and one in Marja, to explain the operation and establish themselves on the ground. Discussions with local Afghans have been assessed as good, officials said, and more such meetings are anticipated in the...

    KABUL, Feb. 13, 2010 – Key military clearing operations for Operation Moshtarak have begun in the central part of Afghanistan’s Helmand province, Afghan government officials announced today. The clearing operations follow smaller-scaled shaping operations that have helped to set the conditions for this new phase, officials said. The combined force comprises the Afghan National Army, Afghan National Police, International Security Assistance Force Regional Command South and the Helmand provincial reconstruction team. The operations now under way are designed to clear the region of insurgents and set the conditions for the Afghan government to introduce increased security, stability, development, rule of...

    BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. — Two men ministering on the streets of Boynton Beach were allegedly gunned down by an 18-year-old man. Police say 24-year-old Tite Sufra and 23-year-old Stephen Ocean were preaching to Jeriah Woody for about 15 minutes, until he got a phone call. Woody left, but then allegedly started walking toward the two. When Sufra approached, Woody allegedly shot him in the head. Ocean ran, and police say Woody shot him in the back, then walked up and shot him again — this time in the head at point-blank range.

    It is unfortunate that Sedgwick County District Judge Warren Wilbert decided to deny Scott Roeder his right to a trial by a jury that was independent of government control. Roeder had admitted to the crime of Voluntary Manslaughter [the "honest but unreasonable belief" that the use of force was necessary in defense of another] in the killing of Dr. George Tiller, but the prosecution decided it wanted him convicted instead of the much broader crime of 1st Degree Murder. Instead of giving the jury the choice between the two different crimes, Judge Wilbert sided with the prosecution and told the...

    Jurors on Wednesday recommended death for the man they had earlier convicted of murdering two Riverside police officers in 1982. There was no visible emotion in the courtroom from Jackson Chambers Daniels Jr., now 71. Daniels is confined to a wheelchair, as he was on the day officers Dennis Doty and Phil Trust were shot. ... "Their verdict said that Jackson Daniels -- a career criminal without an ounce of remorse -- that his life is not more valuable than Dennis Doty and Phil Trust's lives," she said outside court. Riverside County Superior Court Judge Roger Luebs set Jan. 28...

    GRANTS PASS, Ore. – Scientists want to determine if killing the aggressive barred owl that has invaded old growth forests of the Northwest would help the protected spotted owl. Federal biologists are doing a formal study to decide whether to do the experiment, and laying out the terms if they go ahead. The study will be available for public comment and is expected to be completed by fall 2010. "This is to be done experimentally so we can nail down whether, in fact, removing barred owls could improve spotted owl demographics, and also to look into the feasibility of doing...

    A Boston man was sentenced today to life in prison without the possibility of parole, hours after a jury found him guilty of beating his 70-year-old father to death, then using a power saw to cut up the body before scattering the remains throughout the neighborhood. Brian Lee showed no outward emotion when the jury returned a verdict of guilty on a charge of first-degree murder for the October 2006 slaying of Edward Lee at the victim’s home in Boston’s Mattapan neighborhood, prosecutors said. He declined to make a statement at his sentencing Wednesday afternoon, Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office...

    We've taken God out of everything. We have allowed the Lord and Jesus to be ridiculed and mocked and defamed. Kids aren't given as much exposure to God as they are to violence. Who's responsibility is this? Who has turned our kids into humans walking around wanting to kill others "just to know what it feels like?"
  • Elf & safety strikes again: £250,000 study to tell us ten-pin bowling is dangerous

    It's a peril that only a crack team of health and safety experts could have uncovered. After two years and £250,000, they found that ten-pin bowling alleys up and down the country could be a 'very dangerous' environment for families. They concluded that it was too easy for children or teenagers to run down lanes and get trapped in machinery that sets up the pins - even though there was no record of any such accident having happened. The bizarre Health and Safety Executive report found that members of the public would be at risk if they walked along the...

    Commentary ^ | 11/12/09 | Evelyn Gordon
    When four Knesset members proposed legislation last week to institute the death penalty for child murderers, it revived a long-dormant Israeli debate over the pros and cons of this penalty in general. The latest installment, in today’s Jerusalem Post, supports the current de facto ban on executions, arguing that they deter neither murderers nor terrorists. Regardless of whether that’s true, it misses the point: Israel desperately needs a death penalty for hard-core terrorists — not as a deterrent but to prevent them from being released to kill again. And, equally important, to spare the country wrenching emotional blackmail over kidnapped...

    A 1998 graduate of Kiel High School is among the 13 people killed Thursday when 39-year-old Major Nidal Hasan opened fire on his fellow soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas, getting ready to deploy overseas. Thirty people were wounded. Staff Sergeant Amy Krueger was killed at Fort Hood. The first thing the mayor of Kiel did Friday morning when he heard the news about 29-year-old Amy Krueger was to order all the flags in the city lowered to half-staff. The mayor, who's too close to the Krueger family to speak on-camera, told us he feels overwhelmed and he still can't believe...
