Mormon polygamists gearing up for armed showdown
Telegraph UK | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Here, according to the few locals prepared to talk, the elders of an eccentric breakaway Mormon sect have prepared a last stand against further interference by Utah state authorities - stockpiling food and, some say, weapons, as if in readiness for a siege. The godfearing polygamists of Hildale and neighbouring Colorado City, members of the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints (FLDS) have good reason to be jumpy. Last week, for the first time in 40 years, the state of Utah jailed a local resident for bigamy. Rodney Holm, a powerful local police officer, will serve a year in prison. He was also found guilty of two charges of sexual misconduct with a minor... The apparent fear of a Waco-style confrontation with the Hildale polygamists, which the authorities fear could culminate in a serious loss of life, has seen them left alone."

Mother Teresa 'miracle' cure a fraud
Voice of America | Submitted by: Tim Howard
"Mother Teresa is revered by millions of people around the world and inspires legions of Christian faithful... But the famous nun has her critics, including some who question the authenticity of a miracle cure that has been attributed to her... One is Dr. Ranjan Mustaphi from the Balurghat District hospital in Calcutta, who treated the sick woman the nuns say was cured by a miracle. He said the woman's recovery was the result of medical science, not religion. 'At home she was taking anti-tubercular drugs.'"

The newspaper said the accusations against the unit included killing women and children, torturing prisoners and severing ears and scalps for souvenirs. The paper said the Army's investigation of Tiger Force found 27 soldiers who said the severing of ears from dead Vietnamese was an accepted practice. One soldier told the newspaper that troops would wear necklaces of ears to scare Vietnamese civilians."

Angry dad murders young stepdaughter
Evening Times | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"A former soldier accused of murdering his wife's 18-month-old daughter today dramatically admitted killing the child... The trial was halted as [Harry Caldwell] began to hyper-ventilate in the dock as his wife confessed she had aborted his baby... Laura Caldwell, 33, had told the jury yesterday how Caldwell had arrived at their home shortly after Louisa had returned from an overnight visit to her natural father. She said he 'had evil in his eyes' as he picked the girl up by the ankles and smashed her head against a wall. He took a kitchen knife and threatened to kill her, holding it against her throat... When asked why Caldwell would want to kill Louisa, her mother replied: 'Because he is evil. Evil is the only word to describe him. He's not got a soul. He can't have to kill a defenceless baby.'"

Rice dodges questions about Jesus freak general
networks.org | Submitted by: Tim Howard
"President Bush's national security adviser insisted Sunday that the U.S. fight against terrorism is not a war between Christianity and Islam, despite a top general's comments that seemed to say it is. But Condoleezza Rice twice avoided a question about whether Bush will condemn statements by Army Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin, the deputy undersecretary of defense for intelligence... Rice was asked on ABC whether Bush would condemn Boykin's comments, in which he seemed to describe monotheistic Islam as a religion whose followers worship idols... After a 1993 battle with Osman Otto, a Muslim warlord in Somalia, Boykin said: 'I knew that my God was bigger than his. I knew that my God was a real God, and his was an idol.' After Otto's capture, Boykin has said he told Otto, 'You underestimated our God.'"

Sacramento Bee | Submitted by: Tim Howard
"A disciplinary panel has recommended that an officer be fired for using police data bases to review the personal records of Halle Berry, Kobe Bryant, Sean Penn, Sharon Stone and other celebrities. Investigators say Officer Kelly Chrisman used police databases hundreds of times between 1994 and 2000 to look up celebrity records. The Los Angeles Police Department's Board of Rights found him guilty Friday of 15 of 22 counts of misusing department computers... Chrisman, 35, testified that he looked up the information as part of a project to map the homes of movie stars, corporate executives, politicians and others on the city's West Side. He said the mapping was needed to help police handle problems such as celebrity stalkers. Police officials responded that there was no such mapping project."

Police chief shoots boy while whoring
Detroit Free Press | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"The former chief of police in South Rockwood testified Friday about the Internet rendezvous in which he met a teen for a sex act, before being attacked and shooting the teen's friend in the chest. Kevin Walters, who resigned as chief and pleaded no contest this week to a charge of misdemeanor neglect of duty, testified that the plan was for him to perform oral sex on the teen and pay the teen $20... Walters said he drove to the other side of the police station and called a friend before calling for emergency help. 'It was obviously a dumb error in judgment to call him before Monroe County Central Dispatch,' Walters said. 'My first thought was preservation.'" [How the fuck can this be a misdemeanor crime?]

Angry woman breaks own legs
Seattle Post-Intelligencer | Submitted by: optional
"Toni Lynn Lycan, 44, got so mad about the music blasting from the apartment downstairs that she jumped up and down as hard as she could - and broke both her legs... Lycan initially yelled at her downstairs neighbor - Allen M. Haines, 27 - to turn the music down. Haines, in response, grabbed a broom and banged the handle on his ceiling. That infuriated Lycan, so she jumped up in the air and slammed both feet on the floor, hard enough to break both her legs about 4 inches below the kneecap."

Russian cops routinely using torture
observer.guardian.co.uk | Submitted by: wingnut
"After a heavy beating by police fists and batons, Denis had still not confessed to stealing a car radio from a garage near his home. So two officers handcuffed his hands behind his back and clamped the 'elephant mask', as it is called, to his bruised head. They shut its valves and then waited... Once the detainee was unconscious, the militsia, as the Russian police are known, panicked and dumped him in a cell. After he regained consciousness, he had still not signed a confession, so the police gave up and released him... boys as young as 16 are being tortured with electric shocks, asphyxiation and heavy beating in order to extract confessions. Poorly paid and ill-disciplined police, under pressure from Ministers to keep crime clear-up rates high, are resorting to any means to get confessions."

Bush has been trapped in a clay pot and tossed into a river in northern Thailand - or at least his spirit has after being cursed by hundreds of farmers protesting US agriculture policy. A photograph of the US leader was sealed inside a pot amid black magic mantra chants, then tossed into the Ping River Friday by demonstrators... A respected elder performed the voodoo rites, inscribing ancient Khmer scripts on the pot, aimed at trapping the spirit of the US president."

Bush parade canceled in London
London Telegraph | Submitted by: Cliff in Hong Kong
"Plans for the Queen and George W Bush to make a triumphant procession along the Mall during the president's state visit next month have been abandoned because of fears of anti-war protests. The decision, taken by Downing Street after consultations with Buckingham Palace, the White House and Scotland Yard, has disappointed the president and his senior aides... 'We are liaising with the White House and they have made no attempt to hide their disappointment. They saw it, obviously, as a great photo opportunity.'"

South Koreans suffering tongue surgery for English
MSNBC | Submitted by: BLONDE BELLA
"Chop a centimeter or so off your tongue and become a fluent English speaker. That is the hope that recently drove one mother to take her six-year-old son [!!!] for surgery aimed at ridding him of his Korean accent when speaking the language of choice in global business... You would be hard-pressed to find a country that is more feverish in its attempts to learn English than South Korea. From toddlers to students to office workers, learning English has become a national obsession."

City HR director loves his Confederate flags
New York Daily News | Submitted by: jimbo

Eminem wins lawsuit
News Corporation | Submitted by: Tim Howard
"DeAngelo Bailey had sued Eminem, 31, for $1 million, claiming that the lyrics to 'Brain Damage,' from the rapper's 1999 Slim Shady LP, had falsely accused him of assaulting Eminem during their school days. But Michigan judge Deborah Servitto threw out the case, resorting to rap-style lyrics to explain her decision:
Mr Bailey complains that his rap is trash, so he's seeking compensation in the form of cash/ Bailey thinks he's entitled to some monetary gain, because Eminem used his name in vain/ The lyrics are stories no one would take as fact, they're an exaggeration of a childish act/ It is therefore this court's ultimate position, that Eminem is entitled to summary disposition.
Mr Bailey's stunned lawyer, Byron Nolen, said: 'I don't know how the Court of Appeals would look at something like that.'"
