Bomb scare: Manchester airport evacuated after suspicious package found in departure area

© Phil Noble / Reuters
Manchester Airport's Terminal 2 has been evacuated after a suspicious unattended package was found by staff, according to UK media. A bomb squad dispatched to the area assessed the package and deemed it not to be dangerous.

Unconfirmed reports on social media suggested the package had 'tested positive' for a device.

The item was believed to be a bag that had been left for a long time in the drop-off area outside the airport.

The terminal was duly evacuated and cordoned off as a precaution.

Airport officials asked people to leave the area and keep away from windows and glass constructions.

There were no delays in plane departures or arrivals, according to the airport's timetable.

Sadistic Illinois cop who raped 7-year-old forces her to testify before pleading guilty

An Elburn Police Officer's paid vacation has come to an end after he pleaded guilty to repeatedly raping a child from the time she was seven until she was 17. However, before this monster admitted to these unspeakable crimes, he forced his victim to take the stand and testify.

Nearly 20 minutes into the poor child's testimony, David Wright, 54, pleaded guilty. Last year, the Free Thought Project reported on Wright's arrest, noting that in spite of being arrested, he was still being paid. In 2015, Wright was charged with 33 felonies that carried a minimum prison sentence of 143 years and a maximum of 648 years.

"Quite frankly, I think 500 years sounds reasonable," Kane County Circuit Judge D.J. Tegeler told Wright. However, thanks to the fact that Wright was an upstanding member of the police department for 24 years, he was given a sweet plea deal and will be out of jail in less than 20 years.

According to the Daily Herald, during opening statements Monday, prosecutors recalled the first time Wright raped the girl — when she was 7 and in a bathroom at a birthday party — he warned her by saying, "This is gonna hurt."

Instead of having the girl's parents testify as to what their daughter went through, which is standard in incidents such as this one, Wright forced his victim to recall what he did to her.
During her horrific recount of Wright's repeated attacks, after this monster made her relive the nightmare in an apparent attempt to force her to suffer more, Wright changed his plea.

87-year-old grandmother hospitalized after Oklahoma cops attack, pepper-spray, jail her for no reason

© The Free Thought Project
An innocent 84-year-old grandmother was attacked by police, pepper sprayed, arrested, and hospitalized last week after officers chased a suspect during a traffic stop.

Police were after the victim's son, who they say refused to stop for a traffic stop and ran into her home instead. When officers showed up, according [Geneva] Smith, they kicked in her door and as she got up to see who was there — she was met with a face full of chemical agent.

According to Smith, after police pepper sprayed her for no reason, they arrested her, dragged her to the police car and brought her to jail. Clearly stressed over being kidnapped and thrown in a cell, this 84-year-old woman began to have a panic attack. She was then rushed to the hospital.

When FOX 23 contacted the Muskogee police department, they couldn't comment on the case citing an internal investigation.

It was unclear as to what police charged the woman with. However, it is likely the standard 'resisting, interfering, or obstructing.'

Smith now plans to take legal action against the department for her assault.

An Italian bishop's crusade against Pokemon Go

© dailytimes.com.pk
An Italian bishop has threatened legal action against Pokemon Go, saying the "diabolical" game has turned its army of smartphone-wielding players into "walking dead", reports said Thursday.

Antonio Stagliano, the bishop of the southern town of Noto in Sicily, was quoted by several newspapers as saying he was ready to go to court to get the wildly popular app banned.

The augmented-reality game, which allows players to catch virtual monsters using GPS mapping on their phones, has become a global craze since its launch on July 6 but has also prompted a wave of criticism and controversy.

Stagliano had already lashed out at the game in recent days, declaring it "a totalitarian system close to Nazism" and saying it had "alienated thousands and thousands of young people" by getting them hooked on monster-hunting.

The bishop is well known in the Italian press, particularly for his mid-mass renditions of rock hits by popular singers Noemi and Marco Mengoni.

Comment: Interesting connection made by the bishop between a totalitarian system component of monster-hunting, facilitated by the Pokemon Go mechanism. It is a subtle seduction with wide-spread popularity...a most effective means and method by which to entrap the next generation.

My name is 'Idiot': Disturbed Arkansas couple arrested for child abuse after zip-tying 4yo girl to furniture

A 4-year-old girl is in state custody after Arkansas police say she was zip-tied to a bed and hit with a plastic bat. She told officers she thought her name was "Idiot." The child's mother and her boyfriend have been arrested on child abuse charges.

The girl was brought to Cooper-Anthony Mercy Child Advocacy Center in Hot Springs, Arkansas to be examined for multiple injuries. Staff at the center and workers from the Arkansas Department of Human Services quickly called the Hot Springs Police Department, suspecting abuse.

She had "deep purple bruising on her buttocks, lower back, and legs, a blackened eye, a swollen right cheek, a bruise on her forehead, healing scars across her back, and dried blood in the corner of her mouth," the police report said, according to KATV. The young girl was malnourished and had ligature marks on her wrists, implying she had been restrained. When officers asked the child her name, she replied, "Idiot," the Hot Springs Sentinel-Record reported.

The girl's mother, Jennifer Diane Denen, 30, and her live-in boyfriend, Clarence Eugene Reed, 47, were both at the advocacy center when police arrived and were taken in for questioning. Denen told police she had seen Reed spank her daughter with a plastic bat, and that another child had told her that Reed had zip-tied the 4-year-old to a chair. The boyfriend called the girl "Idiot" on a "regular basis," she said. Denen admitted to not seeking medical attention for her daughter's injuries.

Texas woman enslaved two Mexican immigrants for 14 years and told them she was the voice of God

A federal jury last week convicted a Texas woman of illegally harboring undocumented Mexican women and forcing them to work as slaves in her home cleaning business for nearly a decade and a half. According to a statement from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Olga Sandra Murra, 64, was found guilty of two counts of forced labor and two counts of "harboring an illegal alien."

Born in Mexico, Murra moved to the United States in 1997, bringing with her a woman identified only as "V.R." as she settled first in El Paso, and then Forth Worth, according to ICE. The following year, Murra arranged to have another woman, identified as I.G., transported into the U.S. She kept both women's identification documents.

Once in the country, both women were put to work by Murra, cleaning "three to four homes per day up to seven days per week," ICE said. They were also required to clean Murra's personal residence and cook her meals, despite being fed only bread and water themselves. They were not paid for their labor and were forced to turn over all money and earnings from their house cleaning to Murra. For a short time, Murra also provided I.G. with false ID papers, allowing her to take several service industry jobs alongside her home cleaning work.

Sick! Pervert cop solicits teen girl for sex while on duty

The perp, Darryl Stasher.
A Jackson police officer has been fired after a disgraceful viral video showed him attempting to solicit sex from a high school girl — while on duty.

Officer Darryl Stasher was demoted to desk duty on Tuesday and finally terminated on Wednesday after the video found its way to the police department.

"Chief Vance finds this video to be very disturbing," said JPD Commander Tyree Jones. "He has a zero tolerance policy for any type of behavior that is obviously displayed on this video itself."

In the video, Stasher clearly cares not about being filmed while propositioning a high school girl for sex from his patrol car. This young girl is someone's daughter and she is being obscenely solicited for sex by a public servant.

Handcuffs

Cop slams high schooler to the ground, puts him in chokehold for jaywalking

On his first day as a senior at Hoover High School, Keyshawn found himself in a struggle with a Fresno Police officer who put his hands around the student's neck, slammed him to the ground, and then employed a controversial chokehold — similar to that which killed Eric Garner — while his friend Johnny recorded the incident. His 'crime' was jaywalking.

Although video uploaded to Facebook shows no evidence of weapons, much less violence or significant resistance against the cop who choked Keyshawn or other officers arriving on scene, both were arrested.

What precipitated this scuffle and the arrests of two juveniles? Jaywalking and filming the police — two nonviolent, victimless acts. The latter such a minor infraction that it remains enforceable at all seriously stretches the limits of logic; and the former, a constitutional right, if not — amid this epidemic of police violence and brutality — an imperative civilian duty.

Bomb

Three bombings kill approximately 10, injure 300 within 24 hours in Turkey

Rescue workers and police inspect the blast scene after a car bomb attack on a police station in the eastern Turkish city of Elazig on August 18.
A third explosion in the past 24 hours has rocked eastern Turkey, killing four security personnel and injuring seven in Bitlis province. It comes after two car bombings targeted police stations, leaving at least six people dead and as many as 290 injured.

First, village guard Müslüm Yaldız was killed, and a soldier wounded in clashes with PKK militants in the village of Nazar, Hurriyet Daily News reports. Then, a hand-made explosive went off on a road near the village of Gayda, when a military vehicle was passing by. Three soldiers were killed and six injured in that attack.

Comment: As an integral part in NATO's original GLADIO network, and its "Plan B", which has been operational for the past 20 years, Turkey has been no stranger to false flags. The question is, what agenda do these latest bombings serve? Do they justify a further crackdown on the Kurds? Are they designed to further destabilize Turkey after the failed coup? Were they really carried out by the PKK? If so, have the Americans been increasing their support of certain Kurdish groups as a proxy force against Erdogan?
