Typical classy Australian behavior: "Look at this, I'm tittie-fucking your mother!"

via | The Australian | Nathan Rees minister Matt Brown resigns over simulated sex with MP
NSW Police Minister Matt Brown resigned in disgrace last night after it was revealed he had danced semi-naked on a couch and simulated a sex act on a female Labor MP during a drunken party in Parliament House.... A witness told The Australian Mr Brown stripped down to his "very brief" underpants and danced to loud "Oxford Street-style" techno music on a green leather Chesterfield couch he had recently ordered for his office. The witness said Mr Brown "mounted the chest" of Wollongong MP Noreen Hay. The witness said Mr Brown called out to Ms Hay's adult daughter during the performance: "Look at this, I'm tittie-f..king your mother!"
That's the kind of cop I want -- the one who can see my point of view when I'm nicked for drunkenly dry-humping people at random.

Could the Rosenbergs have been innocent?

Rosenberg transcripts raise possibility of perjury - Yahoo! News

WASHINGTON - Newly released grand jury transcripts add strong evidence to the argument that the conviction and execution of Ethel Rosenberg in the Cold War's biggest espionage case were based on perjured testimony.

In recent years, one of the two key witnesses against Rosenberg recanted his testimony. It now appears that the other witness made up her testimony. too. The witnesses were Ethel's brother and sister-in-law, David and Ruth Greenglass.

Thanks to the work of a team of lawyers and historians, the government released the grand jury testimony that formed the basis for the charges against Julius and Ethel Rosenberg.

At the Rosenbergs' trial, the Greenglasses testified that Ethel Rosenberg had typed stolen atomic secrets from notes provided by David Greenglass. The testimony provided the direct involvement the jury needed to convict Ethel Rosenberg and that the judge in the case needed to sentence her to death. |

West Memphis 3 again denied retrial

Judge: No new trial in 1993 Ark. boys' slayings - Yahoo! News

The west Memphis 3 are three innocent boys who were wrongly convicted of murdering children. There was no evidence. The town turned on them because they were goths.

If anyone ever deserved a presidential pardon, it's these guys.

Watch the amazing HBO documentary "Paradise Lost" and the sequel to get the full story.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - A judge on Wednesday rejected claims that DNA evidence clears three men convicted of killing three 8-year-old boys in 1993 and denied their requests for a new trial.

Lawyers for Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley — known to supporters as the "West Memphis Three" — had argued that new DNA tests would prove their clients' innocence.

Both Baldwin and Misskelley claimed their lawyers failed to adequately represent them during trial. Their lawyers said DNA evidence provided by Echols' defense team showed that the men did not kill Steven Branch, Christopher Byers and Michael Moore.

Burglar attacks sleeping victims with spice rub, sausage whack

FresnoBee.com: Local: Burglar victims wake to spice rub, sausage attack

A burglar who broke into a home just east of Fresno rubbed food seasoning over the body of one of two men as they slept in their rooms and then used an 8-inch sausage to whack the other man on the face and head before running out of the house, Fresno County sheriff's deputies said Saturday.

Lt. Ian Burrimond, describing the crime as one of the strangest he's ever heard of, said a suspect was found hiding in a nearby field a few minutes later and taken into custody on suspicion of residential robbery.

Deputies, he said, had no problem linking the suspect to the crime.

Two Utah Juggalos arrested for kidnapping a five-year-old boy

ksl.com - 2 arrested in attempted kidnapping

Note: the pic is two random Juggalos, not the kidnappers.

West Valley City police say two Juggalos, 18-year-old Blue Wynn and a 15-year-old boy, tried to kidnap Mauricio by forcing him into a car. Socorro and neighbors went for help. Neighbor Henry Surowiec said, "She explained to us that a couple of guys wearing clown masks were running around grabbing kids and telling them to go with them."

According to West Valley City Police Department, there are 3,000 to 4,000 Juggalos in Utah. Of those, about 15 percent are considered to be gang members.

Capt. Tom McLachlan, with the West Valley Police Department, said, "Not all Juggalos are involved in criminal activity, but there seems to be certain groups of them that do frequently become involved."

In July, two people police believed to be Juggalos used a battle-ax to stab a 17-year-old boy about a dozen times. Investigators said Cody Augustine and Scott Stapley used text messages to lure 17-year-old Justin Ennis out of his home. Once in the driveway, Stapley allegedly hit Ennis with the battle-ax, and Augustine reportedly stabbed Ennis up to a dozen times. Police found those suspects because the victim ripped a necklace off one of them. It had the symbol of the Juggalos.
