Insanity! School suspends six-year-old for kissing classmate on the cheek, calling it "sexual harassment"

Hunter Yelton, a six-year-old boy in Canon City, Colorado, had a big crush on a girl in his class, so he thought there was nothing wrong with giving her a kiss on the hand. He had previously given her a kiss on the cheek. The girl was seemingly unfazed, but the school was not happy with it. Now, the first grader has been suspended for what school officials call sexual harassment.

"She was fine with it, they are 'boyfriend and girlfriend'," said Yelton's mother Jennifer Saunders. "The other children saw it and went to the music teacher. That was the day I had the meeting with the principal, where she first said 'sexual harassment'. This is taking it to an extreme that doesn't need to be met with a six year old. Now my son is asking questions... what is sex mommy? That should not ever be said, sex. Not in a sentence with a six year old."

Most would agree with Saunders that it was an innocent kiss between two young children, but school officials don't see it that way, and now the six-year-old will have sexual harassment on his school record.

"How can you do this? How can you say this about my child? Remove sexual harassment, remove it from his record. I'm going to stand up and fight for him because that's not the case, that's not what happened at all," said Saunders.

Yuanyuan: the baby boy who was beaten by a 10-year old girl in the Chinese city of Chongqing.
New reports suggest a toddler who was beaten by a 10-year-old girl has actually survived and is in hospital with fractures and a ruptured lung.

Earlier reports said that Yuanyuan, who is nearly two years old, died after being beaten by the 10-year-old and thrown off a 25th floor balcony in Chongqing, China.

CCTV footage showed Yuanyuan's mother accidentally leaving her child in an elevator. The girl is then seen getting in the elevator, picking up the child before dropping him twice, kicking and stomping on him.

Led Zeppelin became famous for it. So too did AC/DC, and apparently even Jay-Z.

It's called "Satanic backmasking" - the embedding of secret messages into music lyrics.

Now it seems that something similar is going on in the kids' pages of Rupert Murdoch's Sunday Telegraph.

Shocking: Ian Watkins pictured himself performing a sex act in a Skype conversation, where he also begged to abuse the daughter of a fan he was having sex with
Paedophile rock star Ian Watkins begged a lover to let him abuse her 10-year-old daughter and even suggested they have a child together so he could rape it, it emerged today.

A female fan has also revealed the Lostprophets singer even offered to DJ at her child's birthday party in return for sex with the little girl.

For years the woman, in her twenties, had sex with Watkins as he flew her to gigs around the world, but she broke it off when she realised 'he is just insane'.

But before then they exchanged lewd messages online where the singer showed himself performing a sex act and asked if the 10-year-old could watch.

People look on as a fire is extinguished following a collision between a commuter train and fuel truck at Bintaro, western Jakarta, on December 9, 2013
A commuter train hit a truck hauling gasoline in Indonesia's capital Monday, killing five people and sending a fireball of orange flames and black smoke shooting skyward.

The accident in southern Jakarta killed the train engineer, his assistant, a technician and two female passengers, said Jakarta Deputy Police Chief Brig. Gen. Sujarno, who revised the death toll down by two, explaining that police earlier thought the truck driver and his assistant had also died. They were instead among nearly 100 people injured, he said by text message.

Deep freeze fails to deter pro-Western demonstrators in Kiev, Ukraine

kiev protests

A protester shouts behind riot policemen standing guard in Independence Square in Kiev, Ukraine, on Monday, December 9. Ukrainians occupied the square to denounce President Viktor Yanukovich's recent tilt away from Europe and towards Russia, as protests continued for a third week.
Arctic temperatures are not enough to cool pro-Western demonstrators' anger at Ukraine's pro-Russian president.

Thousands of them refused to budge from Kiev's snow-covered streets Tuesday, while the European Union's top diplomat made her way there to try to thaw the tensions.

Security forces in riot gear tried to herd demonstrators away from government buildings but avoided a hard-nosed crackdown.

Protesters in Kiev Topple Lenin Statue as Rallies Grow


Public protests thundered into a full-throttle civil uprising in Ukraine on Sunday, as hundreds of thousands of protesters answered President Viktor F. Yanukovich's dismissiveness with their biggest rally so far, demanding that he and his government resign.

At the height of the unrest on Sunday night, a seething crowd toppled and smashed a statue of Lenin, the most prominent monument to the Communist leader in Kiev. The act was heavy with symbolism, underscoring the protesters' rage at Russia over its role in the events that first prompted the protests: Mr. Yanukovich's abrupt refusal to sign sweeping political and free-trade agreements with the European Union.

Aiming for success: Not for this unlucky pupil
An American schoolboy has been suspended after he fired an IMAGINARY bow and arrow in class.

The 10-year-old is said to have violated the school's zero-tolerance policy on weapons.

"Here's how ridiculous it is," defence attorney Jonna Spillbor told Fox News.

"If we're going to punish this poor kid for pretending to shoot a bow and arrow, let's ticket his parents for parking their unicorn in a fire zone."

The Rutherford Institute, a civil rights group, have backed the youngster branding the action as "senseless."

"We all want to keep the schools safe," president John W Whitehead said on the Huffington Post.

"But I'd far prefer to see something credible done about actual threats, rather than this ongoing, senseless targeting of imaginary horseplay."

Rodolfo Gomez Jr. was served with papers dismissing him from the force Wednesday, Stanmeyer said. Gomez had been on paid suspension since August, when he was allegedly caught on video beating a handcuffed suspect.

Gomez, 47, was charged in October with felony misconduct in public office and is scheduled to be in court Thursday.

US veteran Merrill Newman: I was coerced into 'confession' by North Korean captors

Merrill E. Newman inks his fingerprints onto an apology that he said his North Korean captors coerced him into making.
The 85-year-old American veteran who was detained for more than a month by North Korea said he was coerced into a reading a videotaped apology for "hostile acts" against the state and thanked all those who had helped him during his time in captivity.

"Anyone who knows me, knows that I could not have done the things they had me 'confess' to," Merrill Newman said in a statement released late Monday. "To demonstrate that I was reading the document under some duress, I did my best to read the 'confession' in a way that emphasized the bad grammar and strange language that the North Koreans had crafted for me to say. I hope that came across to all who saw the video."
