I fell in love with katie when they popped up in the news a few months ago.
The madman killed her. I am shocked and distraught
No you fucking sicko, the father was a sex fiend, tracked his daughter & began a sexual relationship with her ending up with her pregnant with his child.
Incest is a crime against nature with all the problems if causes for the child & future generations.
THAT IS WHY SOCIETY LOOKS BAD AT IT!
A fathers one job is to look after & protect his children, this sex pest was more interested in feeding his deviant sexual desires more than the care of his loved one.
A very evil & selfish man, because he was legally caught out for incest, he was most likely told by law to not be involved in their life, she moved on & he enraged & jealous killed them all & then like a coward killed himself.
MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Former Mexican
President Vicente Fox proposed on Wednesday the legalization of opium poppy production as a way to help end bloody turf battles fought by drug cartels in various parts of the country.
Fox served as president from 2000-2006 with the centre-right National Action Party but has since distanced himself from the party. In the past, he has also advocated for the legalization of marijuana.
“The plants themselves are not harmful, we make them harmful, (especially) the criminals who use them for evil purposes,” Fox said at a pro-marijuana event in the capital.
He also implored Mexico’s presidential candidates to openly debate drug legalization ahead of the July vote.
The ex-leader cited the violence-racked southern state of Guerrero, arguing that drug legalization would curtail cartel profits and boost safety, including at the iconic beach resort of Acapulco, which has been ravaged with gangland violence over the past few years.
Guerrero, located along Mexico’s southwestern Pacific coast, is home to numerous poppy fields used to produce opium, the main ingredient in heroin.
Last year, more than 25,000 murders were recorded in Mexico as rival drug gangs increasingly splintered into smaller, more brutal groups after more than a decade of a military-led campaign to battle the cartels.
it's not the drugs that are harmful, we've got to finally realise as a species that it's unregulated trade that's harmful
Unregulated trade, throughout the history of humanity was the condition that allowed slavery to flourish
[A] strict new Code of Conduct forbids "offensive language" on Microsoft services – including Xbox, Skype and even Microsoft Word. This includes "nudity, bestiality, pornography, offensive language, graphic violence, or criminal activity".
The policy changes were spotted by blogger and civil rights activist Jonathan Corbett, who highlighted the new Microsoft services agreement in an online post. It goes on to add that the punishments may also include "forfeiture of content licenses, Xbox Gold membership time, and Microsoft account balances associated with the account".
I'd like to see the Canadian government cut back their funding on this kind of crap reporting.
The bus accident in Humboldt that killed half a hockey team was very tragic, and it saddens me everytime I hear developing stories about it.
Then CBC decides to run a story about some amateur free-lance reporter (a virtual nobody who got one online article published), pulling the SJW card on twitter asking about why anyone should care about a bunch of white boys.
Then everyone in the world who uses twitter, (rightfully, imo) attacks the fuck out of her, and that's where this CBC story begins.
Thinking she's entitled to her opinion about trivializing the race and gender of the victims, CBC literally turned the tables on the story and made it about the SJW being a victim, then inserting all the usually SJW issues, trying to overshadow the deaths of children to expose their own agendas.
this is fucking disgusting.
CBC is a dirtbag news outlet. Practically no caucasian newscasters, Ian Hanomansing talking with his hands & the constantly floating camera movements really make it easy to skip this channel. And they shit on firearms owners with unbalanced & fraudulent reporting.
Radio Canada International on shortwave should've got the CBC's funding. Way better reporting integrity. RIP R.C.I.
While I agree the CBC should be shut down, the CBC is one of the places the govt hides people in the witness relocation program. CBC Calgary has 2 that I know of personally.
some random eternal anglo democracy and freedom shit..
How can people be mad that some idiot went around pointing his crack pipe around strangers as if it were a gun???
I worked security for almost a decade and had to deal with nutjob crackheads on the daily- fuck police and their shoot-to-kill mentality, cops are hot garbage at de-escalating because they're taught they can shoot if things go south.
Though TBF in this case the cops were totally justified, that shit looks like a fucking gun even from a few feet away.

Employees could have been required to pay back wages had they resigned in protest over 'fake news' script
Many people working in American cable news pondered the same question this week: Why did hundreds of anchors for Sinclair Broadcast Group all recently agree to read the same editorial on air?
And more specifically, if they were opposed to it — as many were reported to have privately conceded — why didn't they just refuse or quit?
The answer seems to demonstrate how the politicized nature of news in the U.S. has filtered down to local markets, where many journalists have fewer options for career movement. It has also shed light on a rare employment clause in many Sinclair Broadcast Group contracts.
The script, and the dictate to read it verbatim, came from Sinclair's head office last month. The company, which leans conservative, owns nearly 200 local U.S. television stations and reaches about 40 per cent of U.S. households.
Described internally as the company's corporate news journalistic responsibility promotion campaign, it featured on-air news teams reading lines like this, directly into the camera:
"We're concerned about the troubling trend of irresponsible, one-sided news stories plaguing our country. The sharing of biased and false news has become all too common on social media.
"More alarming, some media outlets publish these same fake stories … stories that just aren't true, without checking facts first.
Unfortunately, some members of the media use their platforms to push their own personal bias and agenda to control 'exactly what people think'…This is extremely dangerous to a democracy."
Shortly after the Stepford-like editorials started airing across the country, Trump tweeted out his support.
So-called "non-compete" clauses are typical in broadcast contracts, mandating that if an on-air journalist leaves, they cannot appear on-air for another broadcaster within a set period of time, typically six to 12 months. They are meant to prevent the audience from simply following their favourite person to the new station without interruption.
But these "liquidation" clauses are newer and being applied far more widely among Sinclair staff, Holman said.
"In broadcast it's more common among on-air anchors, where it would be expensive for a company to have to train and find new talent to bring in. What's unusual with Sinclair, is that they've had some people who've never appeared on TV having to sign that clause."
She said some employees confided to Bloomberg News that "the political conservative lean is getting in the way of the factual journalism that they want to do."
Justin Simmons told CBC Radio's As It Happensthis week, that being "forced to echo Trump's rhetoric on fake news" prompted him to quit his job at Sinclair's station in Kearney, Neb.
But with investment in local newsrooms shrinking, Holman said most Sinclair employees see little room to manoeuvre. They can't go to a competing station without sitting out a non-compete clause, paying a steep financial penalty for breaking their contract or paying a lawyer to fight it.
"They feel like they're being held hostage," she said.
On Friday, deans and department chairs from eight U.S. universities sent a letter to Sinclair criticizing the company for requiring anchors to read the script.
"In making the leap to disparage news media generally — without specifics — Sinclair has diminished trust in the news media overall," the letter said.
"Ironically, Sinclair's use of news personnel to deliver commentary — not identified as such — may further erode what has traditionally been one of the strongest allegiances in the news landscape, the trust that viewers put in their local television stations."
Livingston later emailed a statement to poynter.org acknowledging the fallout.
"We understand that the promo prompted an emotional response, and we'll learn from that in the future," the email said. "We value the connections our anchors have with their communities and trust that they will continue reporting local news for their viewers as only they know how to do."
>"We're concerned about the troubling trend of irresponsible, one-sided news stories plaguing our country. The sharing of biased and false news has become all too common on social media.

Apparently David Hogg doesn't like having his constitutional rights infringed in the name of security.
>On Friday, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School left-wing activist David Hogg complained that the school's new policy of making students use only clear backpacks after spring break infringes on his "First Amendment rights."
>After attacking American's Second Amendment rights for over a month, calling the NRA "child murderers," Hogg complained about having to use clear backpacks at school.
>Hogg claimed that the decision by Democratic Broward County officials violated his "First Amendment rights" as he also cited potential embarrassment for students going through "their menstrual cycle" because of their "tampons and stuff."
>"It’s unnecessary, it’s embarrassing for a lot of the students and it makes them feel isolated and separated from the rest of American school culture where they’re having essentially their First Amendment rights infringed upon because they can’t freely wear whatever backpack they want regardless of what it is," Hogg said.
>"It has to be a clear backpack," Hogg continued. "What we should have is just more policies that make sure that these students are feeling safe and secure in their schools and not like they’re being fought against like it’s a prison.”

The poor kid died like that because of bad people not giving a shit.
it is sad he had to say goodbye the way he did.

Sharing her story on Twitter, her father Qasim Rachid explained how upset she had been upon the discovery and expressed his own dismay over the situation.
The father of three said she broke down at a branch of the shop in Virginia.
His two youngest started arguing when his daughter became envious of her older brother’s Spider-Man shoes, he said.
“Hey @Target I bought my four-year-old son Spider-Man shoes and now my two-year-old daughter wants Spider-Man shoes too,” Mr Rashid, an author and attorney, wrote on Twitter. “But you don’t sell Spider-Man shoes that fit two-year-old girls. Even when I search for them - boys shoes are the only result. She’s crying now. It’s heartbreaking.”
There are currently four different kinds of Spider-Man shoes available on the Target website.
However, all four variations are described as “boys” shoes.
>Kids shouldn't be frightened like this anymore
Who's frightened? The girl was upset because her father is an idiot who would tweet rather than tell her no, or just buy her the "boys" shoes and not give a fuck.
Parents who believe their child can never be wrong and try to raise them that way are awful. It just produces adults who are totally dysfunctional, because they've always been told that everything they believe is the right thing, and their parents tried very hard to maintain that false reality.
