Europeans to censor web
Wired | Submitted by: Alaska Freegold
Seig Heil! "The Council of Europe has adopted a measure that would criminalize Internet hate speech, including hyperlinks to pages that contain offensive content. It also obliquely refers to the Holocaust, outlawing sites that deny, minimize, approve or justify crimes against humanity, particularly those that occurred during World War II." Note that the German state of Nordrhein-Westfalen mandated in late 2001 that four hate sites be blocked, one of which was Rotten.com (not a hate site at all.)

But officer, he was worth 15 points
South Florida Sun-Sentinel | Submitted by: Dirty Sammy
"A Fort Lauderdale man grabbed the steering wheel of the car his girlfriend was driving and struck a bicyclist because the rider was black, a Broward Sheriff's Office spokeswoman said Thursday... Nesmith had no idea he was targeted because he was black. Neither did deputies until Greer got back to the police station and unleashed a string of racial slurs and equated black people with "crack dealers," Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Veda Coleman-Wright said."

The Age | Submitted by: Honkey Kong
"In a rare show of public emotion, the Queen wept openly yesterday at a remembrance service for war victims in Westminster Abbey as her golden jubilee year descended even further into another annus horribilis... Reports have centred on the existence of a cassette recording, which Mr Burrell allegedly knew about, made by Diana with the alleged victim, who claimed he was raped in 1989 at an unnamed royal palace by a servant who remains close to Prince Charles." For the assrape he received $45,000; nice work if you can get it.

Inside the world of Saddam's family
The Scotsman | Submitted by: meatload
A former security guard at Baghdad racecourse recently claimed Uday [Hussein] and his friends would gather at the clubhouse where, after consuming prodigious amounts of whisky, they would force naked women to wear numbers and race around the track. But it is Uday’s passion for public executions that is attracting the international attention... Uday has again tightened his grip and managed to usurp his father as the most feared man in Iraq."

The Guantanamo prisoner photo fiasco
CBS News | Submitted by: Ann Onymous
Who posted these photos of suspected Taliban and al-Qaida prisoners, wearing black hoods and kneeling strapped to the floor of a military cargo plane? Whoever did it, the Pentagon wants to talk to you. The rest of you can enjoy the lovely pictures, which reveal more about the humanity levels of the U.S. military than any of us ever wanted to know.

Behind the Japanese schoolgirl panty scene
Mainichi Daily News | Submitted by: LucrezaBorgia
We just can't get enough of this subject: "She stands behind a one way mirror. A large badge is stuck on her chest. P10 and B7 are embossed on the white badge in large, black letters. The letters refer to her undergarments, P for panties, B for bra, and the numbers the price in 1,000 yen units to buy what she has on offer. If a customer selects her, she'll go into a separate room and remove her underwear so he can confirm he's getting what he paid for. He can have some of her bodily wastes for a few thousand more yen, too, if that's what he wants."

Observer | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"Harry McCartan, from Poleglass, remained in the Royal Victoria Hospital last night awaiting surgery to remove two blocks of wood that were still attached to his hands by nails. He had been so badly beaten his family could only identify him by a tattoo on his arm. His condition was described as 'ill but stable'. The 23 year old was attacked by a gang of men who subjected him to a horrific beating before nailing both his hands to a wooden fence in the loyalist Seymour Hill estate."

Shoplifting nets man 50 years prison
The Age | Submitted by: Son of Benway
Three strikes and you're fucked: "Never can there have been a greater shoplifting scandal in California than the one that unfolded this week. I refer, of course, to the case of Leonardo Andrade, who was jailed for 50 years for stealing $300-worth of videotapes from two K-mart stores. Although he had never committed a violent offence, he had two previous convictions for theft, so, under California's "three strikes" law, he was sentenced to half-a-century in prison in 1995."

That doe was butch
AZ Central | Submitted by: wingnut
"Hunting in unfamiliar territory, Joe Kiefer was thrilled to bag a 250 pound mule deer with symmetrical antlers, each with five points and 18.5 inches wide.

Deer steer?

Fear and loathing at NYC schools
New York Times | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"At Monroe Academy for Visual Arts and Design in the Bronx, students who get to campus at 7:30 a.m. may not get inside until 10 a.m., said Erin Dunlevy, a Spanish teacher, who questions the message that students are getting. "Everything from the time you enter the building is telling you that this is punishment, that education is like jail," Ms. Dunlevy said. "Why would they believe they are capable of anything else?"

Kids with flashing lights stop police chief
Toledo Blade | Submitted by: meatload
Memo to cop wannabes: When impersonating a police officer, never pull over the real thing. Chief Mike Martin was driving home from work on M-52 near Howell Highway just north of the city limits around 6:30 PM when a 1997 black Dodge Intrepid following him flashed a set of strobe lights. Mr. Martin, in full uniform, dutifully pulled over and got out of his private car."
