A Canadian judge is facing a disciplinary hearing over controversial comments he made while presiding over a sexual assault case in 2014.

Justice Robin Camp, a provincial judge in Calgary, asked an alleged sexual assault victim why she could not "just keep her knees together".

Mr Camp acquitted the accused man, but the verdict was overturned on appeal.

The Canadian Judicial Council will decide whether Mr Camp should be removed over his remarks.

Disciplinary hearings for judges are not common in Canada, where there have only been 11 such inquiries since the national council of senior judges was created in 1971.

Mr Camp sparked outrage during the 2014 case, when he asked a 19-year-old woman, "Why couldn't you just keep your knees together?"

He also said, "pain and sex sometimes go together" and had referred to the complainant as "the accused," court records show.

The woman told the court she was raped by Alexander Scott Wagar over a bathroom sink at a house party in Calgary.

The Alberta Appeal Court overturned Mr Camp's decision and a new trial was ordered for Mr Wagar.

Mr Camp had since been elevated to the Federal Court.

Senate Democrats Again Blocks Bill to Fight Zika
. . . because there are all sorts of riders on it:

A divided Senate on Tuesday again rejected a funding bill to fight the Zika virus, proving that Congress’s months-old stalemate went resolved over its lengthy summer recess.

In a 52-46 procedural vote, the Senate failed to win the 60 votes necessary to move forward and end debate on a conference report with the House on the issue.

Democrats nearly unanimously voted to block the $1.1 billion funding bill, which was approved by House Republicans in June but has now failed three times in the Senate because of divisive language targeting Planned Parenthood.

The Zika funding bill was attached to next year's spending bill for military construction and veterans affairs, typically one of the least controversial spending bills in either chamber. Which is why it was attached. Are you against Our Military and Veterans? Do you want Our Children to be born with undeveloped brains?

Speaking on the floor Tuesday afternoon, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) argued that Democrats had "filibustered" the funding for both Zika and veterans. See?

Minutes later, his counterpart, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) That avatar of corruption and hypocrisy upon which Tom Smother's character from Casino is based, blasted the GOP for adding in language targeting Planned Parenthood, along with other partisan measures that he described as “strange, weird stuff."

“Republicans were more interested in attacking Planned Parenthood and flying the confederate flag. Can’t make that stuff up — that’s really the truth — than protecting women and babies from this awful virus,” Reid said from the floor.

["Snip!"--Ed.]

Senate GOP leaders acknowledged for the first time Tuesday that the Zika funding will likely be wrapped into the stopgap spending bill, known as the continuing resolution. Heavens to Betsy! A simple bill funding something necessary without pork and partisan fat! Seed? Where are my smelling salts?!

["Snip!"--Ed.]

Some Republicans, including those in Florida facing the most intense pressure on Zika funding, have already hinted that the GOP will have to drop its Planned Parenthood language to get a bill passed in the upper chamber. Image

“For this to get done, that language just may have to go away,” Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), a leading negotiator on Zika who faces reelection this fall, told McClatchy.

It's a poison pill.

Of course both sides have been guilty of putting partisan political agendas ahead of something that everyone knows is necessary. This time I think most of the blame falls on the GOP. It would be like the Democrats if they were in the majority attaching more funding for planned parenthood or a tax hike of some sort to the zika funding bill, knowing that it guarantees a filibuster. And hoping voters will blame the other guys.

Warrants: Mom sought men to sexually assault 10-year-old daughter
The Albuquerque Journal reports that Michelle Martens told police she had set up encounters with at least three men. The child's brutal death sparked vigils and outcry across New Mexico.

According to warrants obtained by the Journal, Martens told investigators she didn't do it for the money. Martens said she set up the sexual assaults because she enjoyed watching.

When Brryan Jackson's father injected his son's infant body with a syringe full of HIV-infected blood, he hoped he'd never see him grow up.

Jackson is here to read a statement he's hoping will ensure his father remains behind bars for as long as possible. It's a statement very few believed he'd get the chance to read, when, in 1992, he was diagnosed with "full-blown Aids" and sent home to die.
. . . .
It begins when his mother and father met at a military training facility in Missouri, where they were both training as medics. They moved in together and five months later - in mid-1991 - his mother was pregnant.

"When I was first born my father was really excited, but everything changed when he went away for Operation Desert Storm. He came back from Saudi Arabia with a completely different attitude towards me," Jackson says.

Stewart began denying Jackson was his child, demanding DNA tests as proof of paternity, and became verbally and physically abusive towards Jackson's mother.

When she finally left him, the couple fought bitterly over child support payments, which Stewart refused to pay. During their fights he would make sinister threats, Jackson says. "He used to say things like, 'Your child's not going to live beyond the age of five,' and 'When I leave you I'm not going to leave any ties behind.'"

Meanwhile Stewart, who had found work as a blood tester in a laboratory, had begun secretly taking samples of infected blood to store at home, investigators later discovered.

"He used to joke around with colleagues saying, 'If I wanted to infect someone with one of these viruses they'd never even know what hit them,'" Jackson says.

By the time Jackson was 11 months old, his mother and father had all but lost contact. But when Jackson was hospitalised following an asthma attack, his mother picked up the phone.

"My mother called my father to let him know - she assumed he'd want to know his son was sick. When she called, his colleagues said, 'Bryan Stewart doesn't have a kid.'"

The day Jackson was due to be discharged, Stewart paid an unexpected visit to the hospital.

"He wasn't a very active father so everyone thought it was strange when he showed up," Jackson says.

"He sent my Mum down to the cafeteria to get a drink so he was alone with me."

When the coast was clear, Stewart took out a vial of HIV-tainted blood and injected it into his son.

"He was hoping I would die off so he wouldn't have to pay child support," Jackson says.

Cops: Boy hidden for 3 years found dead in closet
(NEWSER) – Police found Yonatan Daniel Aguilar dead in the bedroom closet of his family's Los Angeles home in August—and authorities say the malnourished boy, who was 11 years old but weighed just 34 pounds, had been hidden away in locked closets for three years. He was last seen publicly in 2012, at which time teachers reported that he had come to school with a black eye and seemed hungry. After that, his 39-year-old mother, Veronica Aguilar, told almost everyone, including Yonatan's stepfather, that she had sent the boy to an institution in Mexico, the Los Angeles Times reports. Yonatan was reportedly autistic and had issues with soiling himself. Authorities say that only his three siblings knew Aguilar was keeping him sedated with sleeping aids and locked in closets, some of them so small he couldn't stretch out his feet, per Fox 59.

Having watched that documentary My Nazi Legacy which I link in the Thought for the Day thread, t3h Y00t00bz vomited suggestion:



the language is NSFW, particularly since listening to the racist ramblings of the Untermensch Cunt Tom Metzger and his various "friends," in anything vaguely resembling "public" Cannot End Well.

And . . . no . . . this was not inspired by Trump, Hillary, or anything else. These people have been around for a long time, unfortunately.

I have to give credit to Louis Theroux for not losing his mind after the first five minutes.

Never has "living up to your negative stereotype" been so portrayed.

From one of the Opening Posts we have this update! :hyper: :
Eric Aniva was arrested in July on presidential orders after he admitted having unprotected sex with girls as young as 12 - and keeping quiet about his HIV-positive status.
So "Y NO IN COMBAT NEGATIVES NYARL TRAED?"

Continue reading:
Aniva says he was hired by the girls' relatives to take part in a sexual initiation ceremony which they believe "shakes off" the girl's childhood "dust" so that she can enter adulthood.

When Malawi's president, Peter Mutharika, ordered the arrest, he wanted Aniva tried for defiling young girls, but no girls came forward to testify against him.

So instead Aniva is being tried for another ritual defined as a "harmful cultural practice"under section five of Malawi's Gender Equality Act, in which he had sex with newly bereaved widows.

On this charge, two women have come forward to give evidence against Aniva, though one says he had sex with her before the practice was banned, and the other says she managed to escape before the sexual act took place.

"Widow cleansing is a highly regarded practice among us," said a social worker from Nsanje, the remote south-western district where Aniva lives.

An interview with a "proud" female practitioner of female genital mutilation:
Tulip Mazumdar:

More than 200 million women and girls alive today have undergone female genital mutilation (FGM) or cutting. The practice has now been outlawed in some African countries, but not in Sierra Leone, where some cutters are still proud of their profession.

"I have initiated hundreds of girls," Memunatu Turay proclaims proudly. "But I can't tell you exactly how I undertake this ancient tradition, unless you join our secret society."

A big grin spreads across Memunatu's face, as she no doubt sees the pure horror unfold on mine. "Come with me," she says. "I can cut you and only then can I tell you what you want to know."

["Snip!"--Ed.]

We're sitting in her home in a slum area of western Freetown. A photo of her daughter in her college robes hangs in pride of place on a bright yellow wall. "She's been cut and look, she's fine - she's getting an education," Memunatu says, her large round face lighting up.

This 56-year-old is simultaneously warm and fierce. She boasts that she is one of the most trusted and prolific cutters - or soweis as they're called in Sierra Leone - in all of Freetown. "It's a great and ancient tradition," she insists.

"We don't hurt girls, I would never hurt them.

"And it's not just about circumcising. We teach them how to be wives, how to cook and clean.

["Snip!"--Ed.]

It wasn't long before we got onto the finances of Memanatu's profession. She tells me she receives around one million Leones - that's about £140 ($180) - for every girl she cuts. She is also given palm oil, goats, and bags of rice. In a country where two-thirds of people live in poverty, being a cutter is quite the money-maker.

["Snip!"--Ed.]

"You and I are both women," I protest. "I have not been circumcised and I am not promiscuous. Having a clitoris doesn't mean you feel compelled to have sex with lots of men."

She laughs and grabs my arm, pressing it against hers. "You are different to us," she tells me. "Look, you are yellow in colour, I am black. We are both women but we are not the same. You will never understand."

["Snip!"--Ed.]

After ranting about the injustice of it all she takes a deep breath. "If they want us to stop," she says, "they will have to find something else for us to do. If you want to wean your baby off breast milk you provide alternatives, don't you?"

I put to her that if this is her logic, then initiations for her are more about cold hard cash than ancient traditions. "It's about both," she says.
