Holocaust chic? Zara withdraws ‘Nazi concentration camp’ pajamas"In its color and placement, the “sheriff’s badge” – the word Sheriff barely visible in the negative space embroidering – is a one-for-one copy of the Star of David, the religious symbol of Judaism that Jews in Nazi Germany had to wear to mark them as second-class citizens. This was supplemented with a striped design, echoing the patterns on the robes worn by imprisoned Jews in SS death camps."

There is nothing western about the item. As pointed out in the post, a sheriff's badge is five points. The Star of David is 6 points. Nothing in the fashion of the old West had stripes, except maybe prison clothing.

Coroner: man fatally shot himself in the chest while handcuffed behind his back

Coroner says man fatally shot himself in the chest while handcuffed behind his back: "The release of an autopsy report in Louisiana is raising new questions about the unusual shooting death of a 22-year-old black male who died earlier this year in a police car while his hands were cuffed behind his back."

But it gets better. "In the story at the time of the shooting it was claimed that he 'fatally shot himself in the back in the back of a patrol car.'" In the back, while handcuffed behind his back, and was searched for weapons.

Now one might be able to conger up a story where he found the gun in the police car. It is often said on those police shows that people detained in the car will hide weapons or contraband. Thus, while fooling with the gun it went off. But the police made no assertion.

Trooper "Harmons told local media outlets that White was uncooperative when it came time to enter the police car, was able to produce a weapon with his hands cuffed behind his back, and fired a single shot into his own back."

In this scenario he was outside the car and presto he was able to produce a weapon while handcuffed behind his back and shot himself in the back.

But the corner had a slightly different scenario no less bizarre - a suicide. "White died from a gunshot wound that entered his body in the chest." So get this - White is handcuffed with his hands behind his back. It makes no difference whether he was in the police car or not. But somehow he was able to shoot himself in the chest.

"Nevertheless, [the corner] wrote in the report that White was capable of firing the shot while cuffed “due to his body habitus” and has agreed to rule the death a suicide." Body habitus: Build, physique, and general shape of the human body."

Let's see. Louisiana, black male, . . . .

Maybe this will help: "Hannah Rappleye, a reporter for NBC, compared the coroner’s story with the official police report from March in an article published by the outlet this week."
White was shot in the front, not the back. The bullet entered his right chest and exited under his left armpit. White was left-handed, according to family members. According to the report, the forensic pathologist found gunshot residue in the wound, but not the sort ofstipplingthat a close-range shot can sometimes produce. He also found abrasions on White’s face,” she wrote. “And yet, despite the contradictions – and even though White’s hands were never tested for gunpowder residue – the Iberia Parish coroner still supported the central contention of the initial police statement issued back in March.
Does this end the story? We will have to see if the father Rev. White will sue.

9yo girl accidentally kills gun instructor in Arizona with an Uzi

9yo girl accidentally kills gun instructor in Arizona: "A nine-year-old girl accidentally shot a gun instructor in the head with Uzi automatic gun at a shooting range. [...] At the time of the shooting [the instructor] was standing next to the girl while he was showing her how to use the weapon.

Then the girl “pulled the trigger on the automatic Uzi, the recoil sent the gun over her head

Who would have thought?

I wonder how the nine year old will deal with that throughout her life?

WTF were they thinking? Not a pistol, a rife, but an Uzi.

1,400 children sexually abused in Englandf 1997 to 2013

1,400 children sexually abused in Rotherham [England] while authorities turned a blind eye over ‘racism’ fears: "Children as young as 11 in the Yorkshire town of Rotherham were raped by multiple perpetrators, abducted, trafficked to other cities in England, beaten and intimidated, by groups of mainly Asian men from 1997 to 2013, a troubling new report claims. 

The inquiry team found examples of "children who had been doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight, threatened with guns, made to witness brutally violent rapes and threatened they would be next if they told anyone."

Some balls: "The report pinned the blame on the leadership of South Yorkshire Police and Rotherham council." But, "Despite calls for him to quit over the sex abuse scandal, South Yorkshire's Police and Crime Commissioner Shaun Wright has vowed to stay in his job."

Racism fears - what malarkey. "According to the inquiry council officials were afraid to identify the ethnic origins of perpetrators for fear of being labelled "racist" if they revealed the ethnicity of most of the abusers."

Decayed empire.

Detroit shutsoff water service again for cash-strapped residents - what a country

Detroit resumes water service shutoffs for cash-strapped residents: "The City of Detroit has once again begun shutting off water service for residents who are months behind on their bills. The move comes as a 30-day moratorium on shut-offs ended on Monday."

[NOTICE] Almost 40 percent of Detroit’s population lives below the poverty line, according to the AP."

Suspect international leaders

IMF Chief Lagarde Under Investigation Over Alleged Corruption in France: "International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde said Wednesday she was placed under official investigation in France over her alleged involvement in a corruption scheme when she was France’s finance minister, Agence France-Presse reported."

Notice: "Under French legislation, being placed under investigation is almost the same as being charged, however, it does not necessarily lead to a trial."

Are honest and ethical persons a thing of the past?

When the government breaks the law - who gets punished?

GAO: Pentagon Violated Law With Bergdahl Swap | "The nonpartisan Government Accountability Office said the Defense Department failed to notify the relevant congressional committees at least 30 days in advance of the exchange -- a clear violation of the law -- and used $988,400 of a wartime account to make the transfer. The GAO also said the Pentagon's use of funds that hadn't been expressly appropriated violated the Antideficiency Act."

They broke the law twice.

Of course, 'who gets punished' was a rhetorical question. The government routinely breaks the law, but no one is fired, fined or otherwise punished. What is the message?
