Jamaican Police Save Armed Robber

Counterhegemonic | Two passengers seized the gunman and proceeded to disarm him. A larger contingent of passengers then administered a vicious collective beating to the would-be robber sending him fleeing from the bus. He then sought shelter in a nearby house but found an equally rude welcome awaiting him. Enraged bus passengers identified the man, and the residents of the home continued the beating this time chopping into his shoulder with a machete. Bailey reported that the robber was "rescued by the police." more...  0 Comments

Anarchy and Jubilation in Philly

Jeremy Thal | Jubilation. Why is this emotion so rare in this country? I imagine it must have felt a little like this to be in Soweto for the fall of apartheid, or in Sao Paolo when the Brazilian team won the World Cup, or perhaps, in biblical times, when the jubilee year brought the forgiveness of old debts. But in Philadelphia, where just a few years ago, the mayor burned down the MOVE house and a city block with it, where there are more than 400 murders a year, where America seems at times a broken and abandoned place? more...  0 Comments

Colombia: Army commanders fired for killings received U.S. training and assistan

John Lindsay-Poland | Colombian Army commander Mario Montoya resigned today, in the wake of
a scandal over army killings of civilians that a United Nations
official on Saturday called " systematic and widespread." A protégé of
the United States, Montoya received training at the notorious U.S.
Army School of the Americas (SOA) and has also taught other soldiers
as an instructor at the SOA. Montoya was an architect of the "body
count" counterinsurgency strategy that many analysts believe led to
the systematic civilian killings. Colombian President Alvaro Uribe
announced the dismissal of 27 military officers on October 29,
including three generals and 11 colonels and lieutenant colonels, for
human rights abuses. The abuses include involvement in the killings of
dozens of youths who were recruited in Bogotá slums and shortly after
were reported as killed in combat by the army, hundreds of miles away. more...  2 Comments
