      Not much to say. They killed this 13 year old boy while restraining him. He loved animals and nature.

      Another report said they kept him in prone restraint for over an hour, even after he had gone unconscious.

      This level of negligence simply cannot be tolerated.

      The use of restraints against the disabled is often abused.

      Lebanon Protests Israeli Efforts To Save Lebanese Lives

          So, the latest tension between Israel and Lebanon is now going on over the discovery of at least three attack tunnels built by Hezbollah into Israeli territories. This coincides with Hezbollah's prior announced plan to invade the area at some point, in part via tunnels.

          The tunnels proceed from Lebanon under a network of residences inside Lebanon. Israel has in the past asked the UN to search those houses for tunnel construction, and the UN has consistently refused, citing the privacy of the residents.

          Israel may now start blowing up the tunnels it has uncovered. Therefore, it has issued a warning communication to the Lebanese townspeople to stay out of the tunnels. Telling them that entry into the tunnels may endanger their lives.

          In the ever bizarre upside down approach toward Israel - Lebanon has issued formal complaints about Israeli "interference" with their communication systems in issuing these warnings. Apparently it is evil of Israel to try and save Lebanese lives.

          For myself - the tunnels were constructed under the watch of the UN and the Lebanese government; amounting to tacit if not explicit approval. Not much more needs to be said about that.

              In a bizarre Orwellian moment the UN declared today as “Neutrality Day” and touted itself for its “critical” level of “neutrality”.

              Hey UN - Take your own advice

              UN: "Neutrality is critical."

                  as they say - money doesn't equal happiness - proven in this report that rich people can still be miserable SOBs.

                  The report is that rich neighbors first tried blocking grants that would help create a working farm for adults with autism, and tried to buy off the seller of the land in violation of the sales agreement; and when the farm was opened anyway, they trashed the place with threatening graffiti and horse manure.

                  Really??

                      Three times this judge has let rapists walk! This time the President of a frat at Baylor. Could not get the link to work; but, everyone has the story. 400 bucks and a pat on the back! Unsomething believable.

                      I either took, or bought, the source images.

                      Another Reminder To Cherish USA Freedom Of Speech Concepts

                          In late October, the EU ruled that European countries can criminalize criticism of religious figures. In a dangerous precedent, the EU Court upheld the conviction of a Viennese woman for saying that the Islamic prophet Mohammed was a "pedophile".

                          Tame in the US, but in Europe subject to a fine and/or jail time.

                          Very dangerous precedent in my opinion. I wonder if the Court would have said the cartoonists at Charlie Hebro could have been jailed for their cartoons.

                          Europe never has had the kind of free speech we enjoy in the US. And I've seen some movement in the US to abandon our tradition in that regard and seek restrictions on our First Amendment. This is a good reminder to remain vigilant against such efforts.

                              I suppose, that this is who we are becoming?

                              Let me get this straight. These pigs, the one's who buy our government and the tools, that put them there, would force us to have children. When we have a child, and cannot enough to cover daycare, yet earn too much to get any assistance, we are very likely to be sitting in that line, being treated like trash.

                              We have nothing better to do. Again, many women in her position do not have jobs, likely because adequate daycare is out of reach. This woman is expected to stand in line with a baby on her hip for over 4 hours. She sits down and they take her baby from her, because she sat on their dirty floor? How dare she be pissed off!

                              A decent human being might have found her a chair, or had the decency to not hassle her about getting off her feet.

                              Racism, sexism... Classism. Let's force women to have babies, make it hell on earth to sign up for not enough, threaten what benefits they get and if they get out of hand, lock'er up.
