VATICAN: 848 PRIESTS DEFROCKED FOR ABUSE SINCE ’04 [Excerpts] 

 

 

 

 

The Vatican revealed Tuesday that over the past decade, it has 

 

defrocked 848 priests who raped or molested children and 

 

sanctioned another 2,572 with lesser penalties, 

 

providing the first ever breakdown of how it handled the more than 3,400 cases of abuse reported to the Holy See since 2004. 

 

The figures, however, only cover cases handled directly by the Holy See, not those handled by local diocesan tribunals, meaning the total number of sanctioned priests is likely far higher.

NEWS MEDIA CHALLENGE BAN ON JOURNALISM DRONES [Excerpts] 

 

 

 

 

The FAA [Federal Aviation Administration] won’t currently issue drone permits to news organizations. 

 

Media organizations are intensely interested in using drones for photography and videos 

because they are far less expensive to buy and operate than a manned airplane or helicopter, and 

because their size and versatility provide visual perspectives often not possible with manned aircraft.

NEW ALBUQUERQUE POLICE SHOOTING EXPOSES DISTRUST [Excerpts] 

 

 

 

Even though the video seems to support officers’ use of force, the shooting generated outrage around this city of 550,000 and sparked another angry protest. 

 

Some residents said they’ve all but lost faith in the police, and angry demonstrators took over the regularly scheduled city council meeting Monday night, chanting for the ouster of the police chief, shouting at council members and causing so much disruption that the city council president adjourned the meeting. 

 

“They just can’t resolve these engagements peacefully,” said David Correia, a University of New Mexico American Studies professor who helped shut down the city council meeting Monday. 

 

Correia said he believed the SWAT team actually escalated the conflict with [Armand] Martin by throwing flash bangs into his home rather than working to end it without the use of deadly force. 

 

 

 

 

Gangster State America: Where Is America’s Democracy?

Professor Martin Gilens at Princeton University and Professor Benjamin Page of Northwestern University have examined American governance and have concluded 

 

that the US is an oligarchy ruled by powerful rich private interest groups and 

 

that the US government has only a superficial resemblance to a democracy. Their analysis is forthcoming in publication in the journal, *Perspectives on Politics*. 

 

 

Their conclusions are striking: 

 

“The central point that emerges from our research is that economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on US government policy, while mass-based interest groups and average citizens have little or no independent influence.” 

 

“When a majority of citizens disagrees with economic elites and/or with organized interests, they generally lose.” 

 

“In the United States, our findings indicate that the majority does not rule – at least not in the causal sense of actually determining policy outcomes.” 

 

“The preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy.”

FIRE, BLAST AT PHILIPPINE ARMY BARRACKS INJURE 24 [Excerpts] 

 

 

 

 

The cause of the fire inside Fort Bonifacio, the army headquarters in Taguig City in the suburbs of Manila, is being investigated 

 

The site is less than a kilometer (half a mile) from the army gymnasium where [World Tyrant] President Barrack Obama addressed U.S. [World Tyrant] and [puppet] Philippine troops during his visit to Manila last week.

CLASHES AND VIOLENCE MAR POLLS IN INDIAN[-OCCUPIED] KASHMIR [Excerpts] 

 

 

 

 

An explosion in a polling booth injured a paramilitary soldier, and three other troops were wounded overnight when suspected militants fired at them 

 

The previous two polling days in the region were also marred by violence.

 

Police said scores of protesters also clashed with patrolling soldiers, who used tear gas to disperse the crowd[s]. 

 

Anti-[Imperial] India sentiment runs deep in divided [Imperial Indian-occupied] Kashmir.
