The militants locked the door of a dormitory where male students were sleeping and then set it ablaze, slitting the throats of those who tried to clamber out of windows and gunning down those who ran away, said teacher Adamu Garba. He said some students were burned alive in the attack that began around 2 a.m. Female students were spared in the attack, said spokesman Bego. The attackers went to the females’ dormitories and told the young women to go home and get married and to abandon the Western education they said is anathema to Islam, he said. They allowed the females to escape, Bego told AP, relating what survivors and community leaders told Gov. Ibrahim Gaidam when he visited the now-deserted and destroyed Federal Government College at Buni Yadi, a secondary school 70 kilometers (45 miles) south of state capital Damaturu. Bego said the entire complex of the relatively new school had been burned out by firebombs — six dormitories, the administrative building, staff quarters, classrooms, a clinic and the kitchen. He said Gaidam would be asking questions about why the school apparently was left unprotected. “The community complained to the governor that yesterday the military were withdrawn and then the attack happened,” he said. A group of about eight soldiers manned the checkpoint when an AP reporter visited recently, and the nearest military base was a unit of about 30 soldiers in Buni Gari town, 2 kilometers (1.2 miles) away. But soldiers from Damaturu did not arrive until noon, hours after the attackers had finished their work and taken off, according to community leaders who said they buried the bodies of 29 victims. Most appeared to be between 15 and 20 years old, Bego said. Military spokesman Eli Lazarus had confirmed the attack but said he could not give an exact death toll because soldiers still were gathering corpses. He could not immediately be reached to comment on charges about the abandoned roadblock

FEBRUARY 12--Police today announced charges have been filed against a Pennsylvania man in connection with the fatal drive-by shooting of a horse pulling an Amish buggy. Timothy Antonio Diggs, 22, is facing seven misdemeanor counts, including reckless endangerment, cruelty to animals, and firing into an occupied vehicle, according to the East Lampeter Township Police Department. The horse was pulling a buggy with five family members around 9 PM on November 24 when “an unknown type car traveling north passed the buggy.” The buggy’s occupants, a married couple and their three young children, told investigators that they heard “a loud noise, described as sounding like a firecracker” as the vehicle passed. Upon returning to their farm, the family discovered that the horse had been shot in the chest. The animal died before a veterinarian reached the family’s residence. Diggs, has been jailed since cops executed a search warrant at his home in early-December. During that raid, officers located handguns and a motorcycle that had been stolen in two separate burglaries. Police did not disclose whether one of the seized guns was used in the horse killing, nor did they reveal a motive for the shooting.
I don't know...., those little ankle biters do drive me nuts at times!!

The Nassau County couple is accused of using a friend who is a veterinary technician to cut off the puppy’s ears, likely with scissors, officials said. The complaint against the suspects said they then put rubber bands and socks on Miss Harper’s hind legs to prevent her from scratching. That caused the blood to not properly circulate to her legs. The Hugheses are accused of illegally paying the vet tech hundreds of dollars to amputate one of the pooch’s legs, Hall reported. “She doesn’t know anything’s wrong with her. She’s just a loving, playful puppy,” Gary Rogers with the Nassau County SPCA told Hall. “We’ve had an outpouring of support for her.” Lee Hughes, 39, Shawanna Hughes, 37, and Reginald Smith, 33, surrendered Tuesday morning and were arraigned after a months-long investigation by the AG’s office and the SPCA, according to Newsday. They were charged with various counts of animal cruelty, practicing veterinary medicine without a license and conspiracy.
Miss Harper had a number of infections when she was brought in in September, Rogers said.
The dog has been receiving care at My Pets Vet in Huntington since she was found.
The pit bull puppy will soon be fitted with a prosthetic leg, Hall reported. So far, thousands of people have filled out applications to adopt Miss Harper. The SPCA has received applications from as far away as Australia, Hall reported.

JUST CAN'T GIVE THIS CRAP A REST, CAN THEY????
CHICAGO (STMW) – An 18-year-old man was charged with first-degree murder Thursday after police found a decapitated man early Christmas morning in the Hermosa neighborhood on the Northwest Side. Officers responding to a homicide call found the decapitated 41-year-old man about 2 a.m. Wednesday inside a basement apartment in the 2500 block of North Kildare Avenue, police said. UPDATE: Prosecutors say teen decapitated aunt's boyfriend as a Christmas 'present'. Police said they found a knife at the scene. An 18-year-old man, later identified as Alexis Valdez, was standing outside the building and taken in to custody that evening, police said. His relationship with the decapitated man was not immediately known. Valdez, of the 5000 block of West Drummond Place, faces one count of first-degree murder for allegedly murdering and dismembering the man, police said. He will appear for a bond hearing Friday. The man was dead at the scene, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office. He was identified as 41-year-old Silvestre Diaz-Hernandez and lived at the apartment. Area North detectives are conducting a homicide investigation

Though Gona asked for a pardon in court, saying he had a disabled wife who depended on him, Magistrate Mrs. Muthoni Nzibe gave him the 10-year sentence -- a record sentence in that court for bestiality. Gona isn't the only busted goat abuser to make the news in recent months. In August, U.K. man Robert Newman served a six-week sentence after admitting he had sex with a goat. He also had to register as a sex offender.

"A Russian performance artist was hospitalized Sunday after stripping naked and nailing his testicles to a Red Square cobblestone in protest against the Kremlin's crackdown on political rights. A video of the graphic action, available on Russian websites, showed artist Pyotr Pavlensky sitting naked outside Lenin's Mausoleum being covered with a blanket by police officers while horrified passersby looked on. The state-run RIA Novosti news agency said Pavlensky was taken to a police station after being treated in a central Moscow clinic. The Saint Petersburg-based artist said in a statement posted on the Grani.ru website that he was trying to draw attention to Russian society's inaction in the face of the development of a "police state". Russia marked its annual Police Day holiday on Sunday. It is not the first time the 29-year-old has resorted to eye-watering methods of protest. He has previously sown his lips together to demonstrate against the jailing of two female members of the Pussy Riot punk band who staged an anti-Kremlin performance inside Moscow's main cathedral in 2011. He was also arrested after wrapping his naked body in barbed wire outside a Saint Petersburg government building in May."

WEST POINT — Two West Point graduates were married Saturday in the military academy’s first wedding between two men. Larry Choate III, class of 2009, married Daniel Lennox, class of 2007, before about 20 guests. Choate taught Sunday school at the US Military Academy’s Cadet Chapel and said he always thought of it as the place he would get married if he could. West Point hosted two same-sex weddings of women in late 2012, more than a year after New York legalized gay marriage. But Saturday’s wedding was the first time two men wed at West Point. “It’s maybe one more barrier that’s pushed over a little bit, or maybe one more glass ceiling that’s shattered that makes it easier for the next couple,” Choate said Friday. Choate, 27, and Lennox, 28, are no longer in the military and wore tuxedoes for the ceremony. Some of their guests were in uniform. Lennox is getting his Master’s degree in business administration at Harvard University. Choate is applying to Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government. West Point has previously hosted two weddings between gay women. The pair did not know each other as cadets, but met later through a friend.
COMMANDER IN CHIEF LIKE OBAMA, SHOULD BE NO SURPRISE...... NOW OUR GREAT MILITARY SCHOOLS ARE BEING COMPROMISED BY IMMORALITY JUST AS OUR COUNTRY IS BY THE PRESENT LIBERAL ESTABLISHMENT.

MISSOULA, Mont. — A newlywed wife was charged Monday with killing her husband by pushing him off a cliff in Glacier National Park during an argument just a week after they got married. Charging documents suggest Jordan Linn Graham, 22, was having second thoughts about getting married around the time the body of her husband, Cody Lee Johnson, 25, of Kalispell, was discovered. Graham told an FBI agent that she and her husband had been arguing July 7 as they walked in the Loop Trail area of the park. At one point, she turned to walk away, but Johnson grabbed her arm, she said. She turned around, removed his hand from her arm and "due to her anger, she pushed Johnson with both hands in the back, and as a result, he fell face first off the cliff," an affidavit states. Johnson was reported missing July 8 when he failed to show up for work. Graham later reported that she had spotted his body. Graham made an initial court appearance Monday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeremiah C. Lynch on a charge of second-degree murder. She is currently in custody. Her attorney, public defender Andrew Nelson, declined to comment. Johnson's family and friends were relieved after calling for an investigation since his body was recovered July 12. "Two months probably isn't very long for an FBI investigation, but when you're waiting for answers, that's a lifetime," family friend Tracey Maness said. Maness said Johnson was excited about his wedding and in love with Graham. Graham initially told investigators that Johnson left their house late July 7 with unidentified friends in a dark-colored car with Washington state license plates. That night, she texted a friend and said she was about to talk to Johnson about her reservations about having gotten married the previous weekend. The friend, identified only by initials, told the FBI about receiving the text from Graham just before 9 p.m. in which Graham said, "Oh well, I'm going to talk to him." The friend responded, "I'll pray for you guys." Graham replied, "But dead serious if u don't hear from me at all again tonight, something happened." Another friend said Graham reported receiving an email July 10 saying Johnson had left with three friends, went hiking, had fallen and was dead. The next day, Graham reported to park officials that she had spotted Johnson's body. A ranger thought that was unusual, but Graham explained, "It was a place he wanted to see before he died," authorities said. Graham was interviewed July 16 and acknowledged lying about her husband's death, authorities said.

Sarah Pike, 36, ordered a Big Mac from the fast-food chain last Friday and administered insulin to reduce her blood sugar level before eating her meal. When staff spotted her injecting herself they told her to leave the premises because they believed she was using hard drugs. Mrs Pike, of Banbury, Oxfordshire, said: ‘This was probably the most humiliating experience of my life and something like this has never happened to me before. ‘I was shocked. I am Type 1 so I need to use insulin before eating meals each day, and I kept saying the pen could not be tampered with but they wouldn’t believe me.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will become the first Supreme Court member in history to officiate a same-sex marriage at a wedding on Saturday in Washington, D.C. Ginsburg expressed excitement about conducting the wedding ceremony of Kennedy Center President Michael M. Kaiser and economist John Roberts (not related to U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts). “I think it will be one more statement that people who love each other and want to live together should be able to enjoy the blessings and the strife in the marriage relationship,” Ginsburg said. “It won’t be long before there will be another [officiated by a Supreme Court justice],” she added. “I can’t imagine someone I’d rather be married by [than Ginsburg],” Kaiser, who is a close friend of Ginsburg, reportedly said. The Washington Post notes that Ginsburg is also scheduled to officiate another same-sex wedding in September.

A Harvard Study titled "Would Banning Firearms Reduce Murder and Suicide?" looks at figures for "intentional deaths" throughout continental Europe and juxtaposes them with the U.S. to show that more gun control does not necessarily lead to lower death rates or violent crime.
Because the findings so clearly demonstrate that more gun laws may in fact increase death rates, the study says that "the mantra that more guns mean more deaths and that fewer guns, therefore, mean fewer deaths" is wrong.
For example, when the study shows numbers for Eastern European gun ownership and corresponding murder rates, it is readily apparent that less guns to do not mean less death. In Russia, where the rate of gun ownership is 4,000 per 100,000 inhabitants, the murder rate was 20.52 per 100,000 in 2002. That same year in Finland, where the rater of gun ownership is exceedingly higher--39,000 per 100,000--the murder rate was almost nill, at 1.98 per 100,000.
Looking at Western Europe, the study shows that Norway "has far and away Western Europe's highest household gun ownership rate (32%), but also its lowest murder rate."
And when the study focuses on intentional deaths by looking at the U.S. vs Continental Europe, the findings are no less revealing. The U.S., which is so often labeled as the most violent nation in the world by gun control proponents, comes in 7th--behind Russia, Estonia, Lativa, Lithuania, Belarus, and the Ukraine--in murders. America also only ranks 22nd in suicides.
The murder rate in Russia, where handguns are banned, is 30.6; the rate in the U.S. is 7.8.
The authors of the study conclude that the burden of proof rests on those who claim more guns equal more death and violent crime; such proponents should "at the very least [be able] to show a large number of nations with more guns have more death and that nations that impose stringent gun controls have achieved substantial reductions in criminal violence (or suicide)." But after intense study the authors conclude "those correlations are not observed when a large number of nations are compared around the world."
In fact, the numbers presented in the Harvard study support the contention that among the nations studied, those with more gun control tend toward higher death rates.

The ruling told trial judges and lawyers that they "have a shared responsibility to make every reasonable effort to protect the right of our non-English speaking citizens to serve on New Mexico juries." The ruling said the prospective juror's dismissal violated a constitutional provision that said a citizen's right to vote, hold office or serve on a jury cannot be restricted "on account of religion, race, language or color, or inability to speak, read or write the English or Spanish languages ..."
Justice in the U.S., definitely on its way out......

Keller’s sexuality makes his kiss a major first, but on-panel displays of affection are pretty rare for any character in the long-running, old fashioned series. “There aren’t that many on-panel kisses in the pages of Archie, but you often see the lipstick on Archie’s face afterward,” said publisher and co-CEO Jon Goldwater.
YEP, I AM AN OLD-FASHIONED CONSERVATIVE WHO WILL NEVER CONDONE THIS BEHAVIOR. EVERYTHING IS BECOMING ACCEPTABLE IN OUR COUNTRY..., SOON POLYGAMY WILL BE NEXT.... THERE ARE BESTIALITY BROTHELS IN EUROPE, AND WE ARE ON THE SAME FRAME OF MIND WITH OUR EASE IN TOLERATING ABOUT ANYTHING.
