Arizona woman gets 3.5 years prison for driving over non-voting husband

PHOENIX (Reuters) - An Arizona woman was sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison on Thursday for running over her husband with the family car because he failed to vote in the 2012 presidential election, court officials said.

Holly Nicole Solomon, 31, pleaded guilty in April to two counts of aggravated assault under a plea agreement with prosecutors over the incident at a parking lot in Gilbert, a southeastern suburb of Phoenix.

Police said Solomon was upset with her husband, Daniel Solomon, in the days following the Nov. 6 re-election of U.S. President Barack Obama and believed the family would face hardship from his winning another term in office.

The 36-year-old man suffered a fractured pelvis from being run over following a wild chase on Nov. 10, 2012, that left him pinned beneath the Jeep.


Regardless of some bullshit concern trolling over Obama's "legacy"...

I'd like to believe the candidacy of Bernie Sanders is easily strong enough to stand on its own merits without his supporters treating Barack Obama as some kind of enemy...We as a forum can at least agree on that, right??

'Sex-obsessed' seal sent to girls-only park

A "randy" seal has been removed from her home in Cornwall to stop "further illicit breeding".

Common seal Sija, originally from Belgium, has been transferred to Weymouth Sea Life Adventure Park where there are no male seals.

The decision was made after Sija gave birth to a second pup despite being given the contraceptive pill.


Brazil Police Find Decapitated Body of Murdered Journalist

The decapitated body of a blogger known for denouncing corrupt politicians has been found in a rural zone in southeastern Minas Gerais state, police said Wednesday.

Evany Jose Metzker, 67 was reported missing five days before his body was found near the town of Padre Paraiso in one of Brazil's poorest regions.

"His hands were tied behind his back and his body showed signs of torture," a police press officer said, adding that the murder was apparently motivated by Metzker's recent investigations into child prostitution and drug trafficking.

The officer spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to be quoted by name. He said police were also looking into the possibility that the murder was a crime of passion. He would not elaborate.

"It was a barbaric crime that has shocked Minas Gerais and all of Brazil," Kerison Lopes, president of the Minas Gerais Journalists Union said by telephone. "He was decapitated, scalped and tortured."


Of course Greenwald doesn't have a way to blame Obama for this, so it's not worthy of his attention...

New Zealand is way ahead of us...WAY ahead!


Not the Onion, sadly...

Argentine court eases child abuser’s punishment, blaming six-year-old for being gay

An Argentine appeals court has touched off protests by reducing the sentence of a man convicted of abusing a six-year-old boy, on grounds that the victim was a homosexual who had previously been abused by his father.

The Federation of Gays, Lesbians, Bisexuals and Transsexuals on Monday called for impeachment trials of the two members of a Buenos Aires appeals court who signed the decision.
The judges — Horacio Piombo and Benjamin Sal Llargues — slashed Mario Tolosa’s prison sentence from six years to three years and two months in a ruling disclosed on Monday.

Tolosa, the vice president of a neighborhood soccer club, had been convicted of abusing the boy in 2011.

In reducing Tolosa’s sentence, the judges reasoned that the boy, having been previously abused by his father, could not have been sexually abused in the same way a second time.

Nemtsov report claims hundreds of Russian soldiers killed in Ukraine

Source: AFP via Yahoo

Moscow (AFP) - Allies of murdered Russian opposition leader Boris Nemtsov on Tuesday unveiled a report based on research he compiled that they claimed proved large-scale Russian military involvement in Ukraine.

The report -- based on media reports and information from families of Russian soldiers allegedly killed in Ukraine -- repeats widespread allegations of Russian military involvement in Ukraine that Moscow has consistently denied.

Nemtsov -- a former deputy prime minister who became a fierce Kremlin critic -- had started work on the report before he was gunned down just yards from the Kremlin in late February.

The 64-page report said the Russian army made two major incursions into Ukrainian territory in the summer of 2014 and in the winter of 2015. Both turned the tables in the fighting and came ahead of negotiations on the conflict.

Interesting that Greenwald/Assange/Snowden haven't had anything to say about this...Snowden especially, since he is certain to have heard the shots in his apartment...

Black Miss Japan fights for race revolution

Tokyo (AFP) - Ariana Miyamoto entered the Miss Universe Japan beauty contest after a mixed-race friend committed suicide. And she endured abuse after winning the crown because of her skin colour.

Far from being put off by the backlash, Miyamoto resolved to use her new-found fame to help fight racial prejudice -- in much the same way British supermodel Naomi Campbell broke down cultural barriers in the fashion industry a generation ago.

"I'm stubborn," said Miyamoto, the daughter of a Japanese mother and black American father, who turned 21 on Tuesday.

"I was prepared for the criticism. I'd be lying to say it didn't hurt at all. I'm Japanese -- I stand up and bow when I answer the phone. But that criticism did give me extra motivation," she told AFP in an interview.


Boko Haram’s Rescued Sex Slaves Tell Their Horror Stories

LAGOS, Nigeria—Asabe Aliyu is a 23-year-old mother of four children from Delsak, a village near Chibok town. She was among 275 girls, women and young children, who made it to safety, brought out by Nigeria’s military.

Although none of them, as far as we know, were among the almost 200 young women whose abduction from a school in Chibok a year ago provoked global outrage and the campaign #BringBackOurGirls, the suffering they’ve endured is no doubt similar, and so is the possibility that some have psyches so damaged that they identify with their captors.

They were found in the Sambisa Forest, the last stronghold of Boko Haram extremists, where the Nigerian military said it has rescued more than 677 girls and women and destroyed more than a dozen insurgent camps in the past week.

Asabe was weak and vomiting blood, an indication of internal injuries, as she told her story to a reporter from The Daily Times. She said that beatings were the order of the day in the Boko Haram camp. She said terrorists took turns having sex with her on a daily basis and ended up getting her pregnant. Then they forced her into an unwanted marriage.

“I was abducted six months ago in Delsak when our village was overrun by Boko Haram,” Asabe told the reporter at the refugee camp in Yola, the capital of Nigeria’s northeastern Adamawa State. “First I had traveled from my village to a forest close to Cameroon. They turned me into a sex machine. They took turns to sleep with me. Now, I am pregnant and I cannot identify the father.”

Despite the fact she was pregnant, the militants showed her no mercy. Among her duties she had to make sure they were not left hungry. “With my condition as a pregnant woman, I did the cooking of their food,” she said.
