Woman killed in suspected stabbing
Aug 14th, 2013 by Ken Hagler

Woman killed in suspected stabbing. Officers forced entry to the address where the woman was discovered with suspected stab wounds. She was pronounced dead at the scene. [BBC]

I’ve posted before about poor reporting by the BBC, and it seems they haven’t fixed their problems. “Suspected stab wounds?” Are we supposed to think she might instead have fallen repeatedly while running with scissors?

So, we have to imprison people, ruin their lives, and take away their children, for using marijuana, for the children, so that we can then put the children in a strange home and fill them full of all types of dangerous drugs?

In fiction, you couldn’t make up shit this stupid and pure evil.

Samizdata quote of the day.

What happened here was the gradual habituation of the people, little by little, to being governed by surprise; to receiving decisions deliberated in secret; to believing that the situation was so complicated that the government had to act on information which the people could not understand, or so dangerous that, even if the people could not understand it, it could not be released because of national security… Each step was so small, so inconsequential, so well explained or, on occasion, ‘regretted,’ that, unless one were detached from the whole process from the beginning, unless one understood what the whole thing was in principle, what all these ‘little measures’ that no ‘patriotic German’ could resent must some day lead to, one no more saw it developing from day to day than a farmer in his field sees the corn growing. One day it is over his head.

– An excerpt from: They Thought They Were Free: The Germans, 1933-45 by Milton Mayer, published by the University of Chicago Press. 1955
