Tammy Rivazfar, the victim's step-mother said, 'I don't understand where the justice comes into play here. He doesn't admit he's a child-killer.

Swimming in shit, raising awareness
Seattle Times | Submitted by: Incubus
"In swimming down the Columbia River, Christopher Swain has tasted sewage, suffered six ear infections and numbed his body in winter water as cold as 38 degrees. Sometimes there are hints of cow manure, which tastes of mud and clover. Or sewage with a chemical aftertaste from the treatment plants. He didn't relish a swim through a stretch of Washington apple orchards being sprayed with pesticides. Afterward, he says, he suffered swollen lymph nodes."

Hirohito considered apologizing for WW2
Chicago Sun-Times | Submitted by: Tim Howard
"Emperor Hirohito considered making an astonishing personal apology for the Second World War in which he was to express 'deep shame at my immorality,' according to a newly discovered document. ... The apology was clearly addressed to the Japanese people, rather than the victims of Japanese aggression. It expresses sorrow for those who died overseas and those who lost family members and describes the emperor's pain at post-war hardships."

Woman run over twice by own car
Idaho Statesman | Submitted by: Retro
"The accident occurred after Smith backed her 1973 Dodge Dart, up to a dumpster at her trailer park on Alpine Street, police spokesman Rich Wright said. Smith apparently thought she had put the car in park, but the car was actually in reverse when she used the parking brake to stop the car... Because of the direction in which the tires were turned, the car continued to roll in reverse in a circle, and paramedics believe it backed over the woman a second time."

Ten Commandments monument, preacher both hauled away
WEWS-TV 5 Cleveland | Submitted by: Crazy Quagga
"About 30 people were taken into police custody Monday after protesting the attempted removal of Ten Commandments tablets, but most were released without being charged. One person was arrested, however, and that was the Rev. Bill Ryan, who was carried from the scene at Peebles High School by several Adams County deputies... 'It's a little heartbreaking,' protestor Terry Lewis said. 'Our children and grandchildren have the right to read those commandments at any time they want.'" [How about this crazy idea: Engrave the Ten Commandments on some kind of small, lightweight, inexpensive, foldable medium for kids to carry in their pocket. Too complicated?]

Inmates sue judges, attorneys for copyright infringement
New York Daily News | Submitted by: Buzz Beer
"Inmates at the federal jail in Brooklyn are copyrighting their names and filing multimillion-dollar liens for unauthorized use in legal papers and transcripts. ... Assistant U.S. Attorney Noah Perlman was socked with a $30 million bill for using Rodriguez's name 60 times in court papers. Another prosecutor, Scott Klugman, racked up a $2 million bill for four mentions. ... Copyright expert Susan Buckley said there is no legal basis for the claims the inmates are making, and it's extremely likely they will all eventually be dismissed. 'They can't copyright a name,' said Buckley." There has to be a DMCA angle to this.

But Phann and Bruce Rosaro, 27, weren't just hanging outside the Bronx barbershop. They work there. 'We can't smoke inside because it's against the law,' Phann, 23, told the Daily News.
