Pedophile priest joins Costa Rican cult
San Antonio Express-News | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Stripped of his priestly authority by the Oblate Fathers in Texas under accusations of sexually molesting children - which the 73-year-old cleric vehemently denies - [Father Alfredo Prado] now has become a fugitive from his order and the chief celebrant for a reputedly violent doomsday cult in Costa Rica... Since his arrival in Costa Rica in January, his presence has pitted an international child welfare organization against the Catholic Church, the Catholic Church against the cult and the cult against just about everyone... Prado's new home is a cult compound, an elongated strip of several acres on which a large house and several outbuildings house a handful of adults and eight or 10 teen-age boys."

Judge attends Halloween party in blackface
Fox News | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"A white judge is under fire for going to a Halloween party costumed in blackface makeup, an afro wig and a prison jumpsuit with shackles around his wrists and ankles. State District Judge Timothy C. Ellender's costume stereotyped blacks as criminals and convicts, said Jerome Boykin, president of the NAACP's branch in southern Louisiana's Terrebonne Parish, where Ellender's court is located. 'For a judge to take the time to paint his face black with shoe polish, put on an afro wig, a prison jumpsuit and shackles ... and walk around in public, I feel he ain't fit to be a judge.'"

The members of the Communication Forum for Indonesian Christians were later released by authorities in the city of Bandung, about 180km southeast of Jakarta, after a mass suicide was ruled out... The group initially refused to leave their two-storey house, dubbed the prophet hut, Daci said, complaining that police were to blame for the failed prophecy."

Phoenix murderers enjoy 69% success rate
AZ Central | Submitted by: Tim Howard
"Two out of three killers are getting away with murder in Phoenix this year as the city's homicide tally climbs toward a record. Through October, 216 people were killed in Phoenix, more than in all of last year. At the current pace, Phoenix will pass the record 241 homicides in 1994. Beleaguered homicide detectives say they are so overwhelmed by bodies that, in some cases, they can do little more than just document the murder scene and move on to the next one.
