Nigeria: Gunmen Kill Dozens at Market

At least 34 people were killed after a failed cattle raid in a northeastern market, an official and witnesses said Thursday. Other officials offered higher death tolls. Witnesses said the violence began Wednesday when gunmen started shooting in the Potiskum market in Yobe State as they tried to steal cattle. Three people were killed before the attackers ran out of ammunition. All but one of the gunmen escaped. People in the market beat the gunman left behind before dousing him in gasoline and lighting him on fire, witnesses said. Later, the gunmen returned, killing more people and cattle. A local hospital said it had received 34 bodies. Nwakpa O. Nwakpa, a spokesman for the Nigerian Red Cross, said at least 33 people had been wounded. Toyin Gbadegeshin, a Yobe State police spokesman, blamed Boko Haram, an Islamic sect, but witnesses said the gunmen were cattle raiders who sought revenge after their first attack failed.

Would you want this taught to your child?: He-Men and Virginity Pledges - Obama Administration Quietly Endorses Absurd Anti-Sex Curriculum

The administration has succumbed to the political pressure of social conservatives, allowing ideology to prevail over the health and well-being of the nation's youth.

Sometime this month, an updated list of "evidence-based" teen pregnancy prevention programs was endorsed by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and posted to the website of the Office of Adolescent Health (OAH).

No notice, not even a press release to announce the addition of three programs to the coveted list of 28 deemed effective and carrying the HHS seal of approval. Until now, this list was the holy grail of the Administration's commitment to a science-based approach to teen pregnancy prevention and a directive for grantees of the President's Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative (TPPI).

So why the secrecy about the new additions? What does the Administration have to hide?

Because one of the "new" programs is actually an old, dis-proven and dangerous abstinence-only-until-marriage program.


Prominent neo-Nazi believed to kill 4, himself in Gilbert, Arizona - Update

In this undated handout photo from J.T. Ready. Ready is a reputed neo-Nazi who has been conducting heavily armed patrols to catch illegal aliens in the Arizona desert amid the furor over immigration in the state and angering local law enforcement officials who say right-wing radicals are not welcome.
Gilbert Police Sergeant Bill Balafas said they believe 39-year old Jason Todd Ready was the gunman in Wednesday's shootings, an apparent-murder- suicide.

Police say they believe a former Marine with ties to neo- Nazi and Minutemen groups is responsible for shooting four people and taking his own life in a suburban Phoenix home.

"It's safe to say this was a domestic-violence incident," said Balafas.

Authorities say that the four others killed were 15-month- old Lily Lynn Mederos; 23-year-old Amber Nieve Mederos; 47-year-old Lisa Lynn Mederos and 24-year-old Jim Franklin Hiott.

Media reports say Lisa Mederos was Ready's girlfriend and Amber and Lily were her daughter and granddaughter.

Ready was known in Arizona for organizing a militia in the desert with the goal of finding illegal immigrants and drug smugglers. The 39-year-old outfitted himself with military fatigues, body armor and gas masks, and carrying assault rifles.


Convicted Pedophile Caught Again - This Time With Child Porn Ring Evidence

A Kamloops pedophile has been convicted of possession and transmission of thousands of images and videos of child pornography.

David James Caza, who has an extensive prior record of molesting children, was arrested at his home in Kamloops in Jan. 2010.

The arrest and seizure of his computer came after the B.C. RCMP Internet Child Exploitation unit received a tip from Toronto police during a crackdown on a porn ring.

An examination of Caza's computer revealed more than 50,000 digital images and another 3,400 video files of child pornography.

CDs and DVDS with child porn images were also seized.

Caza argued at trial that there was no evidence he was in possession and control of the images.

But in a ruling released online Wednesday, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Robert Powers said the circumstantial evidence against the accused was "simply overwhelming" and found him guilty.

The Traumatic Impact of Pedophilia Sex Rings

Sex rings and child prostitution involves power structures which actively recruit vulnerable children and youth.

Children used in sex rings are often subjected to terribly cruel and sadistic physical abuse in addition to sexual abuse. There is profound trauma associated with being used in child prostitution and child sex rings.

The impact of the abuse can be life-long, often resulting in emotional and physical problems as well as behavioural problems such: as prostitution, street youth, crime and homelessness.

Survivors often lose a sense of personal power and have difficulty making good, choices as adults.

For the survivor who was abused as a child by a group of adults there is no safe place. People "out there" do not offer safety and protection; survivors always feel isolated, powerless, helpless.

Many, if not all, of the people involved in these rings are psychopaths and thus it is crucial that as many people as possible learn about them. If interested, see these Sott articles:

Patricia Krentcil, accused of taking her young daughter into a tanning booth, appears in court on May 2, 2012.
A New Jersey mother has pleaded not guilty to a child endangerment charge after allegedly allowing her 6-year-old daughter to tan at a salon.

Patricia Krentcil appeared in Superior Court in Newark on Wednesday. She did not speak during her brief court appearance, except to say "Thank you, your honor, have a nice day."

CBS 2 learned on Wednesday night the owners of the tanning salon she frequents, Tropics Tanning Salon, have banned her from the facility as her case winds its way through court, CBS 2′s Derricke Dennis reported. CBS 2 also learned that Krentcil would go tanning every other day for 12-minute sessions.

The salon has revoked her membership and is refunding her money, Dennis reported.

Krentcil has denied the charge, saying she "would never permit" her daughter, Anna, to go tanning. The 44-year-old mother spoke as she left court, admitting she has a problem with excessive tanning, but that she would never let her little girl tan.


Report: 'Culture Of Secrecy' Protects Child Abusers

A new report from the Children's Advocacy Institute and University of San Diego says there is a "culture of secrecy" in states' disclosure laws, which hides information about child abuse deaths and near-deaths.

Christina Riehl, an attorney with the institute, spoke to KPBS about the report. She said child welfare has a need for secrecy to protect children, and "that is where the culture starts."

A French journalist has made an official police complaint after allegedly being assaulted on Tuesday by Sarkozy's UMP party supporters.

Marine Turchi, a 29-year-old political reporter for the online news site Mediapart, told Turchi that she had been cornered and surrounded by a "baying mob" chanting "dirty leftist" during a Sarkozy campaign rally in Paris.

"A man grabbed the press badge that was around my neck and held it up shouting that I was a Mediapart journalist," Turchi said on Wednesday. "People all around started chanting 'here they are' and 'dirty leftist'".

"No one came to help, I was genuinely afraid of being violently attacked."

Turchi told FRANCE24 that it was the "umpteenth time" she had been insulted by UMP activists, often older activists in their 50s and 60s.

Lithuanian Hero: Father shoots dead senior judge and politician who sexually abused his three year old daughter

© Irytas.com
A dad who shot dead a judge and a senior politician because they molested his three-year old daughter has become a national hero after going on the run in Lithuania.

Horrified Drasius Keyds, 37, gunned down the perverted pair on Monday after police turned a deaf ear to his pleas for justice for his tortured tot.

Now in hiding, Keyds has become a hero on YouTube and Facebook with hundreds of thousands of fans from all over the world pledging support.

"You are a hero to all of us," reads one Facebook message. "What you did is nothing but justice."

Comment: Update: May 2012

Although Kedys seemed to be the obvious suspect at the time, the investigation into the murder of the two senior judges remains open (largely because the chief suspect is dead - how convenient). Kedys was convicted in a trial by media. For example, his fingerprints were not on the murder weapon. All that is known is that he disappeared on the same day, then turned up dead 5 months later. So it was assumed that he killed the judges out of vengeance.

It sounds plausible, but the devil is in the details. And the Lithuanian state, like every other den of pedophiles that has been exposed in recent decades, is sitting on all the details.


Censored II: The Pirate Bay Fires back at UK ISP Block

Yesterday British courts ruled that five ISPs must block their subscribers from accessing popular file-sharing website The Pirate Bay. A sixth, British Telecom, asked for more time to review the situation before proceeding with the block. Today, The Pirate Bay responded to the news via a blog post published on thepiratebay.se. The Pirate Bay team said that the Western countries of the world are 'the worst culprits' when it comes to censorship, adding that no one from the Pirate Bay team was invited to the court case or asked to speak.

Yesterday's case saw ISPs across the United Kingdom ordered to block access to The Pirate Bay. The ruling followed a request from the British Phonographic Industry sent late last year that asked ISPs to voluntarily block customers from using the file-sharing service. ISPs said they would only block access if there was a court order. Soon after, record companies filed a lawsuit to have them do just that.

The Pirate Bay points out that there are always ways to circumvent the block, such as using a VPN or changing your DNS settings with OpenDNS, but says that's besides the point and people shouldn't have to resort to these measures.

"But don't forget that we can't allow this shit to happen," TPB writes. "Next time they're coming for something else. And yes, there will be a next time if we don't stop them. Write to your ISP and tell them to appeal the case. Write to your local MPs and tell them that this is not allowed. Make sure your voice is heard. Remember, we're all the pirate bay, and we must stand united against the censorship from our opponents!"
