I think at the moment the warning on this thread - 'Contains graphic images, may cause distress', just isn't strong enough at the moment with the last couple pages on this thread.

By god humans are a barbaric species. Man's inhumanity to man beggars belief sometimes.

OK this thread needs a positive story!!!

Anti-Nazi resistance leader Freya von Moltke dies aged 98
Prominent member of German resistance during second world war passes away at her home in Vermont


Quote:
A prominent member of the anti-Nazi resistance in the second world war has died at the age of 98 at her home in Vermont. Freya von Moltke died on Friday after suffering a viral infection, her son said.

Von Moltke formed a group known as the Kreisau Circle with her husband,, Helmuth James Graf von Moltke, which discussed plans for the democratic Germany they hoped would follow the fall of the Third Reich. The group supported the failed attempt on 20 July 1944 to assassinate Hitler.

Von Moltke moved to Vermont in 1960, where she published her memoirs, Memories of Kreisau and the German Resistance.

Von Moltke described her life in the resistance with her husband, who was executed for his activities, in an interview in 2002, saying: "To object and then to stand for what you believe in is one of the most important human activities to this day."

Born Freya Deichmann, into a banking family in 1911 in Cologne, Freya von Moltke met her future husband when she was 18. They were married in 1931 and both received law degrees.

The couple settled on his Silesian estate, Kreisau, located in present-day Poland. In 1932, they moved to Berlin where Helmuth von Moltke set up an international law practice. An opponent of Hitler's regime from its start, Helmuth von Moltke assisted Jews and other victims of Nazism. Helmuth von Moltke was drafted into the German army in 1939 as a specialist in international and martial law, but during his military service he advocated the humane treatment of prisoners of war and civilians in German-occupied territories under the Geneva conventions.

In 1947, Freya von Moltke left for South Africa, where her mother-in-law had been born. She worked as a social worker, but grew troubled by the apartheid regime and returned to Germany in 1956, where she began work on publicising the activities of the Kreisau Circle.

She moved to the US to live with Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy, a Dartmouth College professor and social philosopher who had fled Germany after the rise of the Nazis. After Rosenstock-Huessy died in 1973, she dedicated herself to promoting his works, in addition to those of her late husband

This is a link to a video which has given rise to much debate RE security/policing in recent times.
Please note that it is very disturbing.

Is that for real? He looks so relaxed in the lead up to it! The copper doesn't seem too bothered by the whole gig either - just calmly lifts his belongings and strolls out.

Apparently so:
Quote:
The circumstances behind this video took place on 19 Dec 2003 when 47 year old Ricardo Alfonso Cerna was stopped for a traffic violation at around 9.30 am in Muscoy (a resendiental suburb of San Bernardino County about 60 miles east of L.A.). Cerna fled the scene (in his car, then on foot) before shooting the perusing officer, deputy Michael Parhan, twice in the abdomen. (Deputy Paran survived the shooting).
They brought him in for questioning and as you can see the result was horrific.

There is an article which goes on to discuss how the video has been used in training here:

Murder of Judge Harold Haley

Harold J. Haley (November 14, 1904 – August 7, 1970) was a Superior Court judge in Marin County, California. He was taken hostage in his courtroom, along with several others, during the course of a trial, and murdered during the attempted escape of his captors with their hostages.

On August 7, 1970, Jonathan Jackson brought guns into Judge Haley's courtroom, where San Quentin inmate James McClain was on trial. McClain was freed along with two other San Quentin inmates, Ruchell Magee and William Christmas, who were present at the trial as witnesses. Jackson and the prisoners took Haley and four other people hostage and attempted to escape.

Haley, Jackson, McClain and Christmas were killed as the abductors attempted to drive away from the courthouse. Haley was apparently hit by fire from a sawed-off shotgun that had been fastened to his neck with adhesive tape by the abductors. Two of the other hostages were wounded.

Photographs of the event were taken by news photographers Jim Kean and Roger Bockrath. The best-known photograph by Bockrath shows McClain leading out the hostages, pointing a revolver at police with his right hand while holding a shotgun taped around Haley's neck with his left hand.

Mossad killers use forged Irish passports

Ireland confirms 'Irish' Dubai killers don't exist
By Avi Issacharoff and Jack Khoury, Haaretz Correspondents, and Agencies

...
The government added that the Irish passport numbers publicized by Dubai authorities also are counterfeits, because they have the wrong number of digits and contain no letters.
...
British government sources told the Daily Telegraph earlier Tuesday that the three Irish passport-holders were most likely Mossad agents carrying false documentation.
