Ten child criminals responsible
for 800 crimes in city

Scotsman [Edinburgh], by Alan McEwen

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 1/8/2013 12:49:57 AM

A hardcore group of ten child criminals – aged as young as 11 – may be “beyond help”, police today admitted, as it was revealed they are behind a staggering 800 offences across the Capital. The tearaways make up a list of the worst young offenders in Edinburgh, with three notching up 100 or more charges, including housebreaking, joyriding and robbery. One 15-year-old boy from the east of the city has committed 117 offences in the last two years to become the most prolific under-16 criminal, while an 11-year-old boy from north Edinburgh is also among

Comments:
A juvenile Clockwork Orange, minus the punishment. They run wild because they enjoy doing so and know the system won´t lift a finger to stop them; police admit they can only try to limit the damage. Not a civilized society, in my book (and we see the same thing in the US, only it´s not reported).

I remember reading once a statistic that in the US, 20% of the people commit more than 80% of the crime.

Lock them up; while they´re in jail, they can´t commit more crimes.

More feral youth raised by wolves.
Notice none of these articles saying anything about parents ? Punish them too.

So sad when you can look at children and see how their whole life will be cut out for them.

I saw a movie set in the early 1900´s and noted that (even though it was a movie) how polite and respectful most of the children were. Oh sure, there were hoodlum kids then too, but the regular kids were so polite compared to the rude, sarcastic and selfish brats you often see everywhere today. Our society has regressed so badly ...we are no longer civilized.

What you´re seeing here is a convergence of western society move towards socialism and a huge decline in morality.

This country and at least some of Europe´s society was based on christian values and the concept of hard work.The world´s left has been chipping away at both these fundamentals for the better part of 40 years and the meltdown is finally taking root.It´s only been made worse by the morally challenged Obama who fronts as a decent person but is actually very devious behind the scenes.

Society needs order and the rule of law to succeed and prosper.Most of all it needs honesty which is further eroding every single day.When the most powerful man in the world and his minions lie at the drop of a hat,all sense of propriety is out the window. Business can´t plan,when you could get smacked with a shock and awe regulations and other government demands.

One of the biggest problems in cracking the liberals code,is most people simply don´t believe the president lies. People don´t think he´s allowed to lie and if he gets caught,there´s a media which will immediately circle to wagons and make the accuser the villain.

There was huge economic growth during the Bush years,yet his policies are now to blame for all of Obama´s ill fortune.Bush´s tax cuts bad,Obama´s tax cuts good.

Immigration and migration are a huge partof the wrld´s economic problems.Of course colonialists are obligated to pay through the nose for the sins of the father.

When you have 15-year olds who have racked up 120 offences THAT YOU CAUGHT THEM FOR, ranging from arson to assault, theft, robbery, vandalism, etc. (and even a few murders), it is time to realize your justice system is broken.
They have deep peat bogs in Scotland, don´t they? Ridding society of 10 punks should be easy.

Number of NJ public retirees
with pension of at least 100K
climbs 75 percent in 3 years
Star-Ledger [Newark, NJ], by Jeff Goldman    Original Article
Posted By: Ribicon- 2/24/2014 10:41:37 PM     Post Reply
In 2010, 992 retired New Jersey public employees pulled in a pension of at least $100,000 per year. By the end of 2013, that figure had swelled to 1,731 — an increase of about 75 percent. A new report from New Jersey Watchdog goes into detail on exactly who is getting a six-figure annual payout in retirement, although some still hold other tax-payer funded positions. The Watchdog report comes after it was revealed that the state´s pension fund is in a $47 billion hole. Two retirees are each receiving $195,000 per year — former Jersey City school superintendent Charles Epps and

The culture of corruption at the Newark Watershed Conservation and Development Corp. — alleged last week in a scathing 45-page report by the state comptroller — was apparently no secret to some in Newark’s political world. When queried by state investigators about payouts he received from the agency, one contractor said he was working on a local political campaign in 2008 and recalled the “buzz’ that had been circulating about NWCDC handing out contracts,” the report states. The contractor, Newark resident Edward McRae, discovered the buzz was no exaggeration. The report says McRae’s firm received nearly $390,000 in landscaping contracts from the

Novi Petrivtsi, Ukraine — The opulent residence of President Viktor Yanukovych has always been a closely guarded secret — and a symbol of the alleged corruption at Ukraine’s highest levels. On Saturday, after he fled the capital and its gates were thrown open, thousands streamed into the compound to get a first-hand look. Inside the walled compound known as Mezhyhirya, posh mansions stood amid manicured lawns. There were parks dotted with statues, ponds with fountains and wild ducks, a tennis court, a golf course and a colonnaded pavilion. As throngs of ordinary Ukrainians got their first look at Yanukovych’s luxurious estate, many

Lined up in the parking lot of the Mt. Brighton ski area last summer, rows of new, state-of-the-art snow-making equipment gave the place a military feel. They even call the huge, round fans that cool and crystallize droplets of water into snowflakes “guns.” The equipment, part of a $10 million renovation at the popular Livingston County ski area, is an investment in the future by its new owners, Colorado-based Vail Resorts.

Detroit — Two men who broke into a southwest Detroit house early Saturday morning encountered an armed homeowner who opened fire, killing one of the intruders and wounding the other. The incident is the second this week involving a homeowner who used a firearm to fend off intruders. The most recent shooting happened at about 2 a.m. at a home in the 5000 block of Toledo, Detroit Police 3rd Deputy Chief Rodney Johnson said. “After two men broke into the home, one of the suspects attempted to hit the homeowner with a tire-iron,” Johnson said. “A struggle ensued, and the homeowner

East Windsor — A registered sex offender who was found naked with a 15-year-old boy in a seedy Fort Lee motel room is now facing federal sex trafficking charges, according to authorities. Jayme Shannon, 51, of East Brunswick, was arrested on Oct. 14, 2013 after he allegedly transported a 15-year-old boy across state lines to the Skyview Motel in Fort Lee and had sex with him, U.S. Attorney Paul J.

At least three-quarters of the New Jerseyans who have selected health insurance through the federal marketplace website have followed through by paying their first month’s premium, according to the three companies selling the policies. The state’s rate of paying customers is in line with figures reported across the nation. The figures are seen by some as an important barometer of success in the opening months of coverage. Critics of the Affordable Care Act have noted that with each enrollment update, federal officials have not revealed how many of the enrollees took the next step in purchasing a policy.

KANSAS CITY, MO - Following Saturday´s disturbance on the Country Club Plaza, three teens were arrested and one juvenile was detained. While one mother is apologizing and asking for the public´s forgiveness, another teen arrested over the weekend remains unapologetic for his actions and says police racially profiled him. Kansas City police were first called to Cinemark Palace, located at 500 Nichols Rd., about 8:15 p.m. Saturday on a large disturbance involving about 150 juveniles.

US ranks low in first-ever global
index of LGBT inclusion in armed forces

The enduring ban on transgender individuals serving in the US military has earned America a low ranking in the first global league table of LGBT inclusion in the armed forces. The US is placed at number 40 in the table of 103 countries’ armed forces as measured by their inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender service members. That puts it behind the militaries of countries such as Chile, Georgia and even America’s bête noire, Cuba. The US armed forces in September 2011 repealed the controversial policy of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, which forced gay service members to hide their sexuality.

Anselmo "Rocky" Crisonino, 53, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Peter Sheridan in federal court in Trenton today to taking $65,000 in bribes from Joseph Arrigo, the owner of the Bayonne contract company Shadow Contracting LLC, in exchange for awarding him approximately $426,000 in federal grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, according to U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman.

Morris County — Snow, ice and even some solar panels falling from public buildings in Morris County this week have forced officials to scramble to make new arrangements. The rain and freezing rain experienced on Tuesday caused a “weight shifting” on some of the solar canopies at the county’s Mennen Arena in Morris Township, resulting in a number of solar panels falling, said County Administrator John Bonanni. While no one was hurt, one vehicle was damaged, Bonanni said. Parking under the solar canopies at Mennen has been suspended until the solar contractor is able to remove all the snow and ice,

The cost of owning or renting a home in New Jersey are more challenging than in 48 other states, according to a report from the Center for Housing Policy. The study, Housing Landscape 2014, looked at the percentage of low- and moderate-income households that spent more than 50 percent of their income on housing. It found 30.8 percent of New Jersey households faced “a severe housing cost burden,” an increase of 1.4 percent from 2009. Only households in California found it more burdensome, with 32.3 percent of low- and moderate-income households spending more than half of their earnings on

In an extended rant to Joe Hogan, posted on vulture.com and published in New York magazine, Baldwin recounted his run-ins with paparazzi, his gay slur controversies, and his ill-fated talk show on MSNBC--but he reserved special resentment for Breitbart. "There is a core of outlets that are pushing these stories out. Breitbart clutters the blogosphere with ´Alec Baldwin, he’s the Devil, he’s Fidel Baldwin,´" Baldwin claimed.

The Obama administration is launching an “attack” on the Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D programs as part of Obamacare that will result in higher costs and fewer health care options for seniors, according to a U.S. House subcommittee. The administration is quietly introducing “policies that would undermine the integrity and success of the Medicare Part D program” according to the subcommittee. President Bush signed Medicare Part D into law in 2003 to subsidize prescription drug costs for Medicare beneficiaries. The Daily Caller has learned that the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Health will hold a hearing Feb.

There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t seem to like America very much — and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Mr. Morgan has seen the ratings for “Piers Morgan Live” hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC. (Snip) It’s been an unhappy collision between a British television personality who refuses to assimilate — the only football he cares about is round and his lectures on guns were rife with contempt — and a CNN audience that

The Obama administration warned Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday not to react too aggressively to the fast-moving developments in Ukraine, where pro-Western demonstrators forced the nation’s Moscow-backed president from power over the weekend. National Security Adviser Susan E. Rice said the situation unfolding in Kiev “reflects the will of the Ukrainian people and the interests of the United States and Europe,” and that Russia would be making a “grave mistake” if it sends in military forces to try to reverse the developments — or to seize control of pro-Moscow eastern Ukraine.

Several federal agencies will join forces with companies and universities to run the institutes, which will be devoted to bridging the gap between applied research and product development, according to an administration official familiar with the plans. Each institute will function as a “teaching factory,” the official said, and will provide training for workers while also helping companies get the

He is appealing directly to Republican members of Congress to propose a bill on the issue, telling The Huffington Post that there are five House members and one senator “interested in co-sponsoring the bill” and he expects more to join on.
