I've noticed that a lot of lone wolf, low-IQ killers seem to have unusual looking ears. I don't think it's my imagination either.

Unarmed Teen Killed by Police Was ‘Simply Backing His Mom’s Minivan’ Out of Garage, Lawsuit Claims

The 17-year-old was home alone when officers were called to the red-brick house to check on him after he’d allegedly threatened to harm himself on FaceTime.

What the heck? This wasn't even a case of an officer who was going to a residence expecting trouble. He was sent there to check on a supposedly suicidal kid, not a hostage situation or a robbery in progress.

I cannot imagine how they were able to successfully argue that the officer's actions were reasonable. Guess it just goes to show that even when the victim is white, the police are still able to get away with egregious over-reactions at least some of the time, even when they result in the death of a child...

This is the attitude of many judges and prosecutors.

Seems a bit of a gray area. I mean, if he had willingly fertilized her eggs the USUAL way, divorce wouldn't get him out of child support even if done before he realized she was pregnant. Apparently the court thought that the fact that he willingly fertilized her eggs through non-standard means meant he was still on the hook, even though he changed his mind before they were implanted. (I do think there should be some kind of legal consequences for the woman forging his signature at the very least, though.)

I love how the article had this picture:



captioned with "Vincent's father, also called Henry, made V-signs and shouted "The king is dead""

...umm...those aren't "v-signs".

What puzzles me is, if they were going to be so outrageous as to charge her at all for defending herself from being raped by somebody that she was forced to marry (and who had already raped her once), why only charge her with attempted murder? I mean, she stabbed the guy repeatedly and he subsequently died of his wounds. We recognize it as self-defense, but given that the court there doesn't, why stop short of charging her with murder?

Novia Scotia backs down from bullying teenager who downloaded records, but doesn't return family's electronics and has no idea who else downloaded 700-plus confidential documents out of 11 suspected computers that accessed data


Holy shit, Nova Scotia is fucking stupid in terms of governance. Total clusterfuck.

I'm not saying this is a good thing or the right thing, but what freedom is that violating? The rights of criminals on the lam to keep their cells on without getting caught? If someone finds it so vital to be electronically hidden they can just turn their phone off. It only seems like a civil rights violation if the government forced you to always have a cell and have it on or if they started injecting this in babies.

Sounds like they weren't monkeying with actual breath tests, but faking up extra breath tests to meet quotas by breathing into it themselves several times in succession. Still stupid, but not as outrageous as I had feared.

As in faking DUIs? I'd agree. That's where my mind went. It's still bad because they could be allowing unsafe drivers to slip, but I'd feel worse about thousands of wrongful convictions.
