(Funny how informing the public about a crime by government against the people such as grotesque trampling of 4th amendment rights gets criminal charges while actually committing the crime gets none. Some leaks may well be treason however)
Employees of The Guardian newspaper could face criminal charges over their role in publishing secrets leaked by Edward Snowden, Britain’s most senior counter-terrorism officer has signalled.
Cressida Dick, an assistant commissioner at Scotland Yard, confirmed for the first time that detectives were examining whether staff at the newspaper had committed an offence.
She also told MPs that her officers are looking at potential breaches of a specific anti-terrorism law which makes it unlawful to communicate information about British intelligence agents. The offence carries up to 10 years’ imprisonment.
Preachers of hate are to be ‘silenced’ with new anti-terror orders based on a dramatically tightened definition of extremism and attempts to block their bile on the internet.
The Government is to introduce new civil powers, similar to those used against anti-social behaviour, to target extremists who radicalise others.
They are expected to be used to bar people from preaching messages of terror and hate, associating with named individuals thought vulnerable to radicalisation, and from entering specific venues, such as mosques or community halls.
(Here is how this will go. Using freedom of religion, muslims will get to continue inciting to jihad and genocide and hatred of non-muslims, while this law will be used extensively against those who expose these activities. In other words, like the ‘religious symbols laws’ will be another weapon in the islamic arsenal against the West)
Syrian rebels have once again taken control of parts of Maaloula, an ancient Christian town 60 kilometres from Damascus that lies close to key highways and smuggling routes, activists and residents said on Monday.
According to the report, the “firearm-related murder and non-negligent homicide” rate was 6.6 per 100,000 Americans in 1993. Following the exponential growth in the number of guns, that rate fell to 3.6 per 100,000 in 2000.
This rate rose from 2004 to 2005 and got as high as 3.9 in 2006 and 2007, but it then resumed falling in 2008, the year the Supreme Court ruled in District of Columbia v. Heller that individual firearm possession is Constitutionally protected—particularly for self-defense. This figure fell to 3.2 per 100,000 by 2011.
(Now this I don’t get at all. What they need is, a system to stop them from coming back. They should pay them to go)
(Really, an essay needs to be written about this. How the media and public in Western nations simply are not equipped to handle the mindset of muslims in jihad and so dismiss it as insanity etc. This is a very important issue and deserves proper attention)
