The Vatican said on Tuesday that it had placed under house arrest and opened criminal proceedings against one of its former ambassadors, Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski, who has been accused of sexually abusing boys he met on the street while serving in the Dominican Republic.

It is the first time the Vatican will hold a criminal trial on charges of child sexual abuse, and it comes as Pope Francis has been trying to set a new tone of rigorous attention in the long-running abuse scandal.

The case has received widespread attention in the Dominican Republic and in Mr. Wesolowski's native Poland, and officials in both nations have sought to have him tried in their courts.

The DC police have announced a million-dollar pilot program that will see 165 officers wear body cameras for six months, with a prospect of the practice embracing the whole of the department in two to three years.

Starting October 1, officers who volunteered to participate will start wearing cameras either attached to the front of their shirts or mounted on sunglasses frames, as displayed at a news conference on Wednesday.

There are five different models, ranging in price from $400 to $700, and the participants of the program will try them in order to single out the most efficient one.

"This will make our officers safer," said Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) Chief Cathy Lanier, as cited by AP. "It will make our department more transparent. It will reduce the amount of time that supervisors have to spend investigating allegations."

Comment: Considering the ongoing violence and and outright thuggery of police in the US, this is a program well past its time: Watched cops are polite cops

Two Massachusetts teens have been arrested and a third is being sought in the brutal rape of a teenage girl that was recorded and posted on Snapchat.

The 16-year-old girl said she has no memory of what happened Sept. 3 when she was allegedly drugged and sexually assaulted by three teens behind a Saugus elementary school, reported WHDH-TV. "What they did was disgusting, it was sick, (and) I almost lost my daughter," her mother said. "She was barely breathing she was found with nothing on."

Police said the assault was videotaped and shared on Snapchat, a social networking service that shows images or videos for a short time before they disappear. "She had fingerprints - at least two hands held down by her throat, her breasts were bruised, her whole body was ripped, (and) shredded, (with) broken toes," her mother said. A friend recognized the victim in the Snapchat video and notified the police, authorities said. The video evidence led police to the girl, who was found unconscious in some bushes and had to be carried from the scene.

This cop sums up everything that is wrong with the police in America

Psychopathy or sociopathy is traditionally defined as a personality disorder characterized by enduring antisocial behavior, diminished empathy and remorse, and disinhibited or bold behavior.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation reports that psychopathic behavior is consistent with traits common to some serial killers, including sensation seeking, a lack of remorse or guilt, impulsivity, the need for control, and predatory behavior.

In this raw footage below, officer David Marcinik of the Palm Bay Florida Police Department, comes up on two teenagers parked in a gravel drive.

Over the course of the next 20 minutes Marcinik exhibits several of the traits of a psychopath. He clearly has a lack of remorse for his actions, zero empathy, he's impulsive, and displays a sickening predatory behavior.

Bring back the buffalo! Native Americans and Canadians sign bison revival treaty

Native tribes from both the United States and Canada came together to sign their first treaty in 150 years: a pact that promises to bring the famed bison back to its original home in the Great Plains and Rocky Mountain regions.

The new 'Buffalo Treaty' was signed this week by 11 tribes hailing from the state of Montana and Canada's Alberta province, according to the Associated Press.

Ultimately, the Native American tribes and their indigenous Canadian counterparts - known as the First Nations in Canada - hope to restore the ability of bison to roam freely between the US/Canada border and re-establish the animal's important position at the center of the tribes' cultures.

"Hunting practices, ceremonies, songs - those things revolved around the buffalo. Sacred societies used the buffalo as a totem. All of these things are going to be revised, revitalized, renewed with the presence of buffalo," Leroy Little Bear, a professor emeritus of Native American studies at the University of Lethbridge and Alberta Blood Tribe member, said to the AP.

Although there's no timetable regarding this plan, the signing of the treaty was welcomed as a positive development between the indigenous groups and a hopeful sign for the future.

Comment: Free-roaming bison will probably be much healthier than those poor animals in the 'livestock industry'.

Psychopathic Tennessee cops pummel illegal immigrant in traffic stop

Recently released dashboard camera video appears to contradict police claims about the beating of an uncooperative suspect earlier this year in a Tennessee traffic stop.

Police said they stopped a suspected drunk driver April 13 in Red Bank. That driver, who was identified in a police report only as Mr. Roque, was arrested without incident after failing a field sobriety test, reported WDEF-TV. Officers said in their report that a passenger, identified as Candido Medina-Resendiz, attempted several times to get out of the vehicle after police ordered him to stay inside. But he eventually exited the car, and reserve officers Tim Brown and Scott Miller attempted to take him into custody.

The report shows Medina-Resendiz resisted by pushing and pulling away, and police said the suspect struck his face on the pavement when Miller took him to the ground. Another officer used a stun gun on Medina-Resendiz - who is an illegal immigrant - in an attempt to subdue him, the report shows. Medina-Resendiz continued to struggle with the officer as he attempted to place him in handcuffs, and Officer Mark Kaylor said he struck the man in the face after he attempted to bite him.

Police eventually got handcuffs onto Medina-Resendiz and carried the still-struggling suspect to a patrol car and used the stun gun again. But dashboard camera video released last month contradicts what officers wrote in their report. Medina-Resindez is pulled from the car and thrown to the ground, where the back of his head strikes the pavement. Kaylor asked the suspect if he spoke English, and Medina-Resendiz said he spoke very little. But none of the officers requested a Spanish-speaking officer, and all three continued to bark orders at Medina-Resendiz in English.

Comment: The police have become more bold and much more violent, a reflection of the behavior of the psychopathic elite. They are essentially "following the leader":
"Police officers in New Jersey swear to uphold the United States Constitution as part of their oath of office. But one cop has decided that, because ‒ in his eyes ‒ President Barack Obama doesn't follow the document, he doesn't have to either.

Special Police Officer Richard Recine, a part-time employee of the Borough of Helmetta Police Department, was caught on video saying, "Obama has decimated the friggin' Constitution, so I don't give a damn. Because if he doesn't follow the Constitution we don't have to."

Militarization of American police: Wyoming sheriff says grenade launcher needed for riot control in 25-inmate jail

Sheriff Don Murphy told the Casper Star-Tribune that the county bought the grenade launcher from Wyoming weapons manufacturer Defense Technology.

"We would use it in situations when less-lethal force is justified to get the situation under control," Lt. Jeremy Wardell said. "That tool gives us an option not to use lethal force."

Wardell said the weapon is similar to pepper spray or a Taser. Officials said deputies could use the launcher to fire tear gas in a hostage situation. But Goshen County has not had a large fight or break out in 15 years, according to Wardell, who oversees the jail.

The riot-control weapons provide temporary incapacitation through blunt trauma, according to the Federation of American Scientists. The 40-millimeter weapon files a single grenade.

Liberia: Life at the epicenter of the Ebola outbreak

Will we see these images in Western countries soon?
As of this week, the Ebola outbreak in West Africa is known to have infected more than 5,700 people and taken more than 2,700 lives. Yet those figures could be dwarfed in the coming months if the virus is left unchecked. On Tuesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that the total number of infections could reach 1.4 million in Liberia and Sierra Leone by January 2015. Though cases have been reported in five countries, nowhere has been harder hit than Liberia, where more than half of the Ebola-related deaths have occurred.

The outbreak has crippled Liberia's economy. Its neighbors have sealed their borders and shipping has all but ceased, causing food and gas prices to skyrocket. Schools and businesses have closed down, and the country's already meager health care system has been taxed to the breaking point. Meanwhile, as panic grips the country, crime has risen steadily and some reports suggest that Liberia's security forces are among the perpetrators. To get a picture of how dire the situation is on the ground, we got in touch with Abel Welwean, a journalist and researcher who lives outside of Monrovia. He conducted a handful of interviews with Liberians in his neighborhood in the second week of September and also provided his own harrowing story of what life is like in the country.

Italy stages Ebola evacuation drills - Las Vegas nurses union says U.S. not ready, an outbreak would be 'pure pandemonium'

Image
The patient, a slight woman in her 30s, lay motionless on the stretcher as a half-dozen men in biohazard suits transferred her from a C-27J cargo plane into an ambulance and then into a mobile hospital isolation ward, never once breaking the plastic seal encasing her. The exercise put on Wednesday was just a simulation of the procedures that would be used to evacuate an Ebola patient to Italy. But for Italian military, Red Cross and health care workers, it offered essential experience, especially for those on the front lines of the country's sea-rescue operation involving thousands of African migrants who arrive here every day in smugglers' boats. Italian authorities and medical experts insist that the risk of Ebola spreading from Africa to Europe is small, given that the virus only spreads by direct contact with infected blood or other bodily fluids. They say Italy's first case of Ebola will probably be an Italian doctor or missionary who contracts the disease while caring for patients in Liberia, Sierra Leone or Guinea - the three hardest-hit countries - and is airlifted home for treatment.

Yet concern runs high: EU health ministers who met this week in Milan spent an entire session discussing Ebola and the EU. They concluded that, while the risk of the disease coming to Europe is low, the EU must improve coordination and prevention measures to better diagnose, transport and treat suspected cases. "There is an emergency," said Dr. Natale Ceccarelli, who heads the infirmary at the Pratica di Mare air force base south of Rome, where the training course was staged. "If one person is infected, he infects everyone."

Scale of Ebola outbreak in Western Africa leaves staff of frontline health agency with grim decisions over who to treat and who to turn away

Like every other volunteer who serves with Médecins Sans Frontières, Stefan Liljegren joined up to help the sick and destitute. In 15 years with the agency, he has been everywhere from Afghanistan and Kosovo through to South Sudan and East Timor, the hard and often dangerous work compensated for by the knowledge that he is saving lives.

His latest mission, in Ebola-hit Liberia, offers rather less job satisfaction. As field co-ordinator of MSF's new 160-bed Ebola treatment centre in the capital, Monrovia, one of his tasks is to decide which of the sick people who arrive outside the clinic's gates should get treatment. Such is the scale of the outbreak that for every 20-30 new patients the clinic admits each day, the same number are often turned away - despite the likelihood that they will go home and infect their relatives.

"This is by far the most difficult challenge that I have ever faced," the 44-year-old Swede told The Telegraph during a brief break from his work in the sweltering humidity of Liberia's monsoon season. "Every day I have been faced with impossible choices, and decisions that are inhuman to make. Having to tell someone that they can't come in when they are screaming and begging to do so is an indescribable feeling, especially when you know they may go back to families who might well then get sick themselves."

Outside the clinic an hour earlier, a grisly scene demonstrated Mr Liljegren's point. Resting face down in the mud was the body of Dauda Konneh, 42. He had been lying there dead since daybreak.

"He was vomiting a lot and had symptoms like Ebola, so we put him in a pick-up truck and took him here for treatment," said one young man outside. "When we got here last night, he was still alive, but the clinic would not accept him. He died at dawn today."
