Hate crimes officer apparently loves Hitler
London Telegraph | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"A detective responsible for investigating race-hate crime, who was exposed by the Telegraph as being married to a British National Party member and living in a shrine to Hitler, has resigned from her post. Dc Linda Daniels, who worked for the community safety unit in Notting Hill, west London, lives in a house in Essex festooned with Nazi regalia and has a dummy in an SS uniform in her hallway. The couple's dog is named Blondi after Hitler's pet alsatian and they used to keep a bust of the dictator next to a picture of Dc Daniels in police uniform. Her husband of 10 years, Keith Beaumont, is a member of the far-Right BNP and believes that the facts of the Holocaust have been 'exaggerated.' Community safety units were set up after the inquiry into the racist murder of Stephen Lawrence to inquire into 'hate crimes,' including 'racist crime, domestic violence, homophobic crime and hate mail.'"

England refuses Bush shoot-to-kill authorization
Guardian UK | Submitted by: libertyworrier
"Home Secretary David Blunkett has refused to grant diplomatic immunity to armed American special agents and snipers travelling to Britain as part of President Bush's entourage this week. In the case of the accidental shooting of a protester, the Americans in Bush's protection squad will face justice in a British court as would any other visitor, the Home Office has confirmed. The issue of immunity is one of a series of extraordinary US demands turned down by Ministers and Downing Street during preparations for the Bush visit."

Taliban coming back in a big way
observer.guardian.co.uk | Submitted by: wingnut
"The Taliban are back. And if for the moment they are confined to a few isolated, inaccessible, lawless mountain valleys, their power, military and political, is growing... The Taliban are expanding fast. The deputy governor of Zabul admits most of his province is now controlled by the militia. Most of Oruzgan province and around half of Kandahar province is now beyond government authority. Even in supposedly loyal areas there are many loyal to Mullah Omar."

Army deploys soldiers who flunked drug test
CNN | Submitted by: Kaiser Wilhelm
"Twenty-one Iowa National Guard troops who tested positive for drug use on the eve of their deployment were sent overseas anyway, despite the Army's 'zero tolerance' policy. Now the Army must decide how to deal with them when they return. Officials at Fort McCoy, Wisconsin, which serves as a multistate jumping-off point for Reserve and Guard troops, said about 13 soldiers from other states who tested positive for drugs were also sent to Iraq. Fort McCoy officials said some of the soldiers apparently used the drugs with the intention of getting caught and sent home... Spokesmen for the Army and the Department of Defense told The Des Moines Register this week that they were unaware of the problem."

America loves John Hinckley Jr.
CNN | Submitted by: Dustin Prewitt
"Lawyers for John Hinckley Jr., the man who shot President Reagan in 1981, will ask a federal court Monday to let their client take day trips to his parents' house in Virginia and stay overnight with them... In 1982, a jury found Hinckley not guilty by reason of insanity of attempting to assassinate Reagan and wounding a Secret Service agent and presidential spokesman James Brady outside a hotel in Washington. He has been institutionalized at St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Washington ever since."

Legacy of Oswald's gun dealer
Chicago Sun-Times | Submitted by: Tim Howard
"This time of year, around the anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, Chicago sporting goods magnate Milton P. Klein would grow moody. For he could not help but be reminded of his awful place in history as the man who sold Lee Harvey Oswald the rifle used to kill JFK... Milt Klein believed in the rule of the hunter -- you eat what you shoot -- and his connection with Kennedy was a fact." [So it would have been OK if Oswald had eaten Kennedy afterward?]

Wal-Mart yanks Chinese baby toy over subliminals
World Net Daily | Submitted by: Crazy Quagga
"Wal-Mart has yanked a baby-crib accessory from its shelves after parents all across the country complained it disseminates a subliminal message of hate, but you wouldn't know it unless you called the major retailer. 'We felt it was an item that wasn't up to our quality of standards,' Wal-Mart spokesperson Karen Burk told WorldNetDaily in explanation of why the toys were removed from stores' shelves nationwide earlier this year... a Vancouver, Wash., family discovered the toy they unsuspectingly attached to their 6-month-old son's crib utters the words 'I hate you' amid the rhythmic ocean sounds designed to lull the baby asleep."

Senator accuses colleagues of figurative lynching
CNN | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Sen. Zell Miller of Georgia came under fire Friday from civil rights activists who demanded an apology from the conservative Democrat after he equated his party's opposition to the nomination of a conservative African-American judge to a lynching. Miller -- who has already rankled Democrats by endorsing President Bush for re-election -- refused to apologize... 'The Democrats in this chamber refuse to stand and let her do it. They're standing in the doorway, and they've got a sign: Conservative African-American women need not apply. And if you have the temerity to do so your reputation will be shattered and your dignity will be shredded. Gal, you will be lynched.'"

Iraqi government approximately as crooked as ours
Time | Submitted by: Bowelrush
"When U.S. authorities in Iraq picked three companies last month to build a wireless telephone network for the country, they were pleased that no Americans were among the winners, a fact they hoped would silence those who charge that the Bush Administration is handing reconstruction contracts only to business cronies and campaign contributors. But some telecom-industry insiders complain that the winners of the licenses, which cost just $5 million but could eventually be worth as much as $1 billion a year, benefited from ties to prominent Iraqis on the U.S.-backed Governing Council... 'The mobile contracts were all politically divided,' says an Iraqi emigre who returned as a consultant for a telecom firm. 'It's the same as Saddam's time. It's about who you know.'"

Florida suspends Constitutional right
South Florida Sun-Sentinel | Submitted by: harley
"The Florida Supreme Court's chief justice ordered Thursday that guarantees for speedy trials and court hearings will be suspended temporarily in Miami-Dade County because of next week's free trade meetings... [Chief Justice Harry Anstead] approved the request from Miami-Dade Chief Circuit Judge Joseph Farina, who asked for the precautionary move because of the estimated 20,000 or more protesters expected to fill downtown Miami for the Free Trade Area of the Americas meetings." [Um, wow.]

Greenpeace bitchslapped with 1872 law
MSNBC | Submitted by: Kaiser Wilhelm
"When Greenpeace activists illegally scrambled aboard the cargo ship APL Jade, it was the start of a pretty typical day... But 15 months after the APL Jade incident, the U.S. Justice Department in Florida's Southern District dramatically upped the ante. Drawing on an 1872 law, it filed criminal charges against Greenpeace USA for boarding a ship before its arrival in port... Critics and some legal experts say the pursuit of an entire organization for this type of civil disobedience by its members is a break with 200 years of American tradition, and appears to be an attempt by the Bush administration to silence a vocal critics."
