Iraqi prisoners sexually abused on film
Sydney Morning Herald | Submitted by: j0bs
"United States soldiers at a prison outside Baghdad have been accused of forcing Iraqi prisoners into acts of sexual humiliation and other abuses... Some of the photographs, and descriptions of others, were broadcast in the US on Wednesday by a CBS television news program and were verified by military officials... The program reported that poorly trained US reservists were forcing Iraqis to conduct simulated sexual acts in order to break down their will before they were turned over to others for interrogation.. 'The pictures show Americans, men and women, in military uniforms, posing with naked Iraqi prisoners,' a transcript said. 'And in most of the pictures, the Americans are laughing, posing, pointing or giving the camera a thumbs-up.' ... The photographs were taken inside Abu Ghraib prison, near Baghdad, where US forces have been holding hundreds of Iraqis."

Wire Services | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Flagler County sheriff's deputies found Melba Doshier's body Tuesday in the car parked at a Wal-Mart in Palm Coast after shoppers reported a bad smell coming from the vehicle. The St. Johns County medical examiner on Wednesday said she died of natural causes at least five days before she was found. Doshier's daughter Alicia, who officials said is in her mid-30s, has been questioned and hospitalized for psychiatric observation. She was found in the store Tuesday, 13 hours after security cameras spotted her parking the car and entering the store at about midnight Monday... Receipts in the car indicated the daughter drove through Texas and North Carolina before reaching Florida, O'Brien said. The woman said she talked to the body during the trip, he said."

Court dismisses crack dealer's lawsuit
Connecticut Post | Submitted by: El Diablo
"For Terrell Embry, Tuesday's verdict was harder to swallow than the 26 packets of crack cocaine he ingested four years ago. The 19-year-old Bridgeport drug dealer rushed out of federal court just seconds after a jury cleared Bridgeport Hospital, a former administrator and two surgeons of violating his constitutional rights by conducting an emergency operation to remove some of the swallowed drugs. With Senior U.S. District Judge Peter C. Dorsey still on the bench and the eight-member jury still in the box, Embry stood up, motioned to his girlfriend and stormed out of the courthouse. 'He's disappointed,' said John R. Williams, Embry's lawyer. 'I think that his own admission [of] being a professional drug dealer didn't help.' ... Embry was brought to the hospital in April 2000 by Bridgeport police after he swallowed at least 26 small packets of crack cocaine during his arrest."

Dad beats truant son with beef jerky
New York Post | Submitted by: whatever
"A Staten Island bodega owner whipped his young son with an 18-inch stick of beef jerky after catching the boy skipping school, authorities said yesterday. The bizarre incident began at about 10 a.m. on April 24, when a school official called Esteban Palafox, 34, at his store, Mexico Azteca II in Tomp- kinsville, telling him that 10-year-old Esteban Jr. had not shown up for classes for three days, the elder Palafox told The Post... After he shouted at the boy, Palafox went down to the deli to retrieve the dried beef, cops said. He then returned to his apartment and repeatedly whacked the boy's thigh with the jerky, leaving bruises, according to police... Asked if he regretted turning the beef jerky on his son, he was emphatic: 'No! No! No! No! No!'"

Bush edits science reports to fit political goals
Wire Services | Submitted by: Timisoara
"The Bush administration has stripped information on a range of women's issues from government Web sites, apparently in pursuit of a political agenda, researchers reported on Wednesday... A council report said the missing information fell into four categories: women's health; their economic status; objective scientific data; and information aimed at protecting women and girls and helping them advance. The deletions and alterations appear to hew to a political agenda, rather than providing the nonpartisan, unbiased data that has been the tradition of U.S. government reports, the council said... The National Cancer Institute's Web site was changed in 2002 to say studies linking abortion and breast cancer were inconsistent; after an outcry from scientists, the institute later amended that to say abortion is not associated with increased breast cancer risk."

Nightline accused of anti-war bias
Wire Services | Submitted by: Anybody But Bush - 2004
"A major television chain, the Sinclair Broadcast Group, will bar its ABC-affiliated stations from airing a planned Nightline tribute to fallen U.S. troops in Iraq, saying the program is a political statement disguised as news. [So what else is new?] ABC News plans to devote Friday's entire Nightline segment to the tribute, with anchor Ted Koppel reading aloud the names of hundreds of fallen American servicemen and women as their photographs are shown. The network's intentions drew a denunciation from Sinclair, a Baltimore-based owner of 62 television stations in 39 markets reaching roughly 24 percent of U.S. television households. Sinclair said the Nightline segment 'appears to be motivated by a political agenda designed to undermine the efforts of the United States in Iraq.'"

Uri Geller smells a quick buck
CNN | Submitted by: cheeseman
"Celebrity psychic Uri Geller said Thursday he would try to take legal action to stop U.S. television station ABC going ahead with a 'reality' show in which five couples compete to adopt a baby. Geller claims the ABC 20/20 show is an exact rip-off of his yet-to-be published novel Nobody's Child which follows a reality TV game show where five couples compete to win a baby. 'I'm outraged and angry. I can't believe that such a show will go on,' he told Reuters. The Israeli-born spoon bender, who now lives in Britain, began his book in 2001, publishing chapters weekly on a subscription Internet Web site. It has not yet been printed... Geller said he was friends with the show's host Barbara Walters and was puzzled why she had decided to do it... He [also] counts embattled pop star Michael Jackson, who is facing trial over child molestation charges, as a personal friend." [If Uri's such a friend of Barbara Walters, then he ought to know that 20/20 isn't a game show.]

White man making all of us look bad
BBC | Submitted by: einzelwesen
"North Wales deputy chief constable Clive Wolfendale has been criticised for performing a rap to his force's black police association. He gave his rendition of the rap to the inaugural meeting of the North Wales Black Police Association (NWBPA), with Rukhsana Nugent, the group's secretary. Commission for Racial Equality chairman Trevor Phillips said: 'Presumably this was an attempt to get down with their supposed culture. How wrong. How patronising. How demeaning.'" [Bear in mind that his lyrics were intended to be ironic.]

I'm just a white boy called the Deputy CC / They said I'd never make it as a bitchin' MC [...] The Beeb Man stuffed us with the Secret Policeman / It's no good moanin' cos' he found the Ku Klux Klan / Job ain't what it used to be; it's full of blacks and gays / It was just us white homies in the really good ole' days [...] No-one loves the coppers cos' we're rotten to the core / Cross between the devil and a governmental whore... [And so on.]
