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.
