“St. Louis police detective Luther Hall was brutally beaten while working undercover at a protest against police brutality in September 2017. Now three fellow officers are on trial for the assault, which they claim was a case of mistaken identify. One of the officers already pleaded guilty and admitted to lying on the stand. Lauren Trager, an investigative reporter with CBS affiliate KMOV-TV, joins CBSN AM’s Anne-Marie Green to discuss the case.”

“Rev. Rick Joyner is calling for Christians to buy weapons for a coming “civil war.” But according to a New York Times column, the pastor is labeling his own children as being “evil.” He’s the same pastor who in 2016 compared Donald Trump to the disciples of Jesus. He also told his followers in 2013 that he was praying for a military coup against former President Barack Obama.

“French MPs have voted to back a new law that would set the age of consent at 15 and prohibit sex with relatives aged under 18. It is expected to pass in the Senate and will give France an age of consent for sexual relations for the first time. It comes after a series of sexual abuse scandals that shook the country. Supporters say it will make it easier to prosecute both historical and recent cases of sexual abuse. The bill was passed unanimously by politicians in the National Assembly on Monday night. President Emmanuel Macron’s government has said that after final approval in the spring, it wants the bill to come into force quickly. ‘No adult will be able to take advantage of the consent of a minor’, Justice Minister Eric Dupond-Moretti said on Monday. ‘We do not touch children’, he added.”
COMMENT from SUBMITTER:
Hypocrisy again, but one cannot expect anything less from politicians. At age 15, Macron had an affair with his 39-year-old married teacher, Brigitte Trogneux who had three children of her own; they married in 2007 when he was 29. Macron of all people must realise that children are sexual beings, rather than a species devoid of any sexual desire. I guess the AOC was set to 15 rather than 16 to avoid imprisoning his wife for engaging in historic sexual abuse.
The damaging dictat: ‘We do not touch children’ only increases the gulf between adults and children at a societal level.
‘No adult will be able to take advantage of the consent of a minor’ seems to acknowledge that children younger than 15 can consent, but simultaneously cannot consent (once the bill is formally approved).
I wonder if France’s prisons can accommodate the tsunami of senior-citizens that will undoubtedly be prosecuted and sent down in 2022 for historic child sexual abuse.”
Politicians ramming puritanical rage and “retribution” down the throats of the masses…again…
Politicians are overwhelmingly evil.
“Oh, the horror!”, that we might some day have a world where loving people can mutually enjoy the company of each other…”Far better” that we fear and hate each other, enduring the many consequences of such a chronic and soul destroying state of life.
I’m wondering in all of this…Do the French people, themselves, actually want this?
Politicians commonly act on behalf of aggressive, minority interests…and in doing so, they merely drop the axe on everybody else.

” Reporters for Australia’s ABC Tasmania have reportedly been warned to avoid using the term ‘pedophile’ when referring to an accused serial child molestor, for fear of “discouraging” non-offending pedophiles from seeking help.
In an email to reporters, an unnamed senior producer at ABC said that the Sexual Assault Support Service (SASS) had “mentioned their concerns” about describing former nurse James Geoffrey Griffin – who committed suicide in 2019 after the allegations against him were made public – as a pedophile.
“We should avoid [the term pedophile], unless we know he had a clinical diagnosis of paedophilia and instead use serial sexual offender / predator, or a sexual abuser of children and young people,” the producer warned.
The email cautioned that the SASS says there are a lot of pedophiles or “people with paedophilia” who “do not act on those impulses,” particularly if they “reach out for and receive professional psychological help.”
According to The Australian newspaper, the producer’s email”concerned and angered” some reporters, as well as activists against child molestation. Beyond Abuse founder Steve Fisher, who himself is a survivor of abuse, argued that “changing language” could confuse people when reading stories that expose predators.
While some reporters initially believed the advice to be binding, others did not and there have been multiple instances of the word ‘pedophile’ being used since the email was sent, the Australian said.

Pedophile word banned unless they were tested and result showed they do have pedophilia”
I see a lot of the problem I’ve been discussing for years, in this article…
…Aggressive people [sometimes hurt and with an axe to grind] have this dialogue under siege, essentially trapped where it mostly has been for the past 30 years…and they are trying to hold onto dominant control, over what can be said/understood, and how it can be said/understood.
They want to paint their own particular sort of picture…and tell people “this is the only way it is”…and lock out everything else.
…And some of them are angry, because they’ve been told they need to stop inhumanely demonizing other human beings?…because they need to stop spreading false information, about entire demographics of the human species?!
This is why I find so much of the media “profession” to be disgusting and reprehensible.
They are self entitled to use everybody else, however they please…inflicting whatever injury they please…because it serves their own predatory goals…
…and they get so angry when they are called out on it…or people even politely ask them to change.
So many of these people are just soulless bastards, who care nothing about other human beings, who lack human empathy…and who will shamelessly say anything for a paycheck.
