Unborn, Stillborn and Miscaried Babies Used to Heat British HospitalsBy NWV News Writer Jim Kouri

Unborn, stillborn and miscarried babies were treated like firewood by hospitals in Merry Old England, according to reports in the United Kingdom.
A British newspaper broke a shocking news story regarding a National Healthcare Service (NHS) program that used the bodies of untold thousands of babies, who were aborted or died as a result of a miscarriage, became fuel for heating hospitals in Great Britain, yet the U.S. media ignored it.
Ten upper-echelon members of British government's socialist healthcare directorate told the BBC's Channel 4 that "burning foetal remains alongside other rubbish while two others used the bodies in ‘waste-to-energy’ plants which generate power for heat."
When the story broke in the United Kingdom -- and in a few U.S. news websites -- the British Department of Health immediately notified the outraged British people that Dr. Dan Poulter, the nation's health minister, had banned heating hospitals or any other facilities with the remains of unborn babies.
"This is criminal! What is going through the minds of these people? Are they taking lessons on fetus disposal from the Nazis?" asked an angry American homicide detective, Michael Snopes.
"Whether one of pro-choice or pro-life, this is a story that should turn our collective stomachs," he said.
"I guarantee you that they are not doing that to Muslim Babies" said editor Paul Walter
At remains of over 15,000 unborn children have been incinerated by the London-based NHS between 2011 and 2014, Channel 4’s show "Dispatches" claims.
The show's producers said that they "found that parents who lose children in early pregnancy were often treated without compassion and were not consulted about what they wanted to happen to the remains."
As an example of what many are calling a "barbaric practice," the British news media examined their country’s largest hospital, Cambridge's Addenbrooke Medical Center. It's believed Addenbrooke heated their hospital, including its maternity ward, with the incinerated bodies of close to 800 babies as part of the hospital's energy-conservation policy. If a mother asked about the body of her miscarried baby, she would be told it was cremated.
“This practice is totally unacceptable,” said Poulter to Channel 4.
“While the vast majority of hospitals are acting in the appropriate way, that must be the case for all hospitals and the Human Tissue Authority has now been asked to ensure that it acts on this issue without delay,” he added.
NHS's Medical Director Sir Bruce Keogh upon hearing about the breaking story contacted all NHS trusts that this "practice must stop!"
The news show's host, Actress Amanda Holden, in the past "suffered both a stillbirth and a miscarriage but was helped through the trauma by caring treatment from compassionate professionals, as are many parents."

Absurd - Gun Tattoo Leads to SWAT Call

Police forces really need to stop rolling out their SWAT units seemingly for each and every call:
Tree trimmers working for Central Maine Power Co. woke Smith up as they were about to cut branches around electrical lines outside his home in Norridgewock.
Wearing only pants, Smith went out into the icy day and ordered the crew from Lucas Tree Experts to get off his property. One worker saw the tattoo and, thinking Smith had a pistol in his waistband, called police.
The cops showed up in force and surrounded Smith’s home armed with AR-15s over a crude tattoo.


I can only imagine that they freak out every time pop tart Rihanna slips into a bikini. She has three gun tattoos, including a large on on her thigh.

Student takes razor from classmate hurting himself, gets suspended and faces expulsion
By Will Lerner

March 20, 2014

Last week, Virginia Beach, Virginia sixth grader Adrionna Harris noticed her classmate doing something terrible – he was cutting his arm with a small razor. The Bayside Middle School student knew that was wrong, so she stepped in and took the razor away, and threw it out. It was an act that one mightthink would earn her praise from her school. As WAVY 10 On Your Side News reports, it instead earned her a suspension and possible expulsion.
*******
 
*******
That’s right, Adrionna received a 10-day suspension, the only reason being because she had admitted what happened. With the weapon disposed, it was her truthfulness that led to the punishment. Adrionna’s mother, Rachel Harris, is understandably frustrated with the school’s actions. She told WAVY, "I felt she did the right thing…There was not a teacher in sight while this boy was cutting himself. She felt like it was almost a 911 situation, that she had to help immediately, like there wasn’t time to find a teacher…The school system over-reached absolutely." As Adrionna herself put it, "…I was just trying to help."
On top of not agreeing with the school’s severe punishment, Rachel was not happy with the lack of response she was getting. She told the station her calls were not being returned. Finally, when WAVY started inquiring, the school started to get in touch with Rachel. Currently, a hearing regarding the suspension is scheduled for today. The Harrises hope for Adrionna’s immediate return to the classroom.
So, with all this turmoil, would Adrionna do it all over again? Knowing how quick she was to act to help a classmate, her answer isn’t all that surprising. She told the station, "Even if I got in trouble, it didn’t matter because I was helping him … I would do it again even if I got suspended, yes."

More Young Children Getting Arrested
ABC News
July 31, 2013
Pregnant mom Mattie Ashley said she wanted to teach her 6-year-old son Alex a lesson, so she took an unusual discipline tactic. She called the police and had him arrested.
The Fort Meyers, Fla., mother insisted that police arrest her son when they arrived on the scene after the boy kicked her in the stomach.
Alex's mother told ABCNEWS' Good Morning America that she would call the police again on her son under the right circumstances.
"I have to make him realize he can't do this," Ashley said. "I love him dearly, but I refuse to lose him in the system. I'm going to do what it takes to stop him and to let him realize that what he's doing is very serious and he can get into a lot of trouble."
Florida's deputy state attorney, Marshall Bower, said charges would not be filed against the boy because he is too young to have formed "criminal intent" before his actions.
"I don't think any 6-year-old belongs in the criminal justice system," Bower told Good Morning America. He said the police on the scene may have felt they had probable cause to arrest the boy for assault, but he was released immediately after being brought in.
Nevertheless, he is not the only extremely youthful offender that police across the country have dealt with lately.
The Florida Department of Juvenile Justice reported that more than 100 children aged 5 and 6 have been arrested in Florida in the past 12 months.
"Unfortunately, we are seeing more and more of this," Bowers said. "We're tending to want to handle these types of problems through the juvenile justice system, as opposed to getting help for these children and their families through other means."
No charges were filed in the 84 cases in Florida that have been resolved.
Other cases with pint-sized offenders include:
Harry Branch-Shaw, a 3-year-old pre-schooler who lives in Manhattan's East Village, was with his nanny in the park when they both realized that he wasn't going to make it to a nearby public toilet in time. To avoid an accident, she had the boy urinate near a tree.
The nanny was promptly handed a $50 summons for Harry's public urination.
New York City Parks Commissioner Henry Stern said this week that he will review the case and make a "reasonable judgment," after officials find out the facts. Meanwhile, his mom, Gigi Branch-Shaw, has vowed to appear before the Environmental Control Board later this month to get it straightened out.
And in Bismarck, N.D., a 7-year-old boy is facing a criminal theft charge for stealing $6 from his mother. His mother filed charges after she asked both of her sons if they did it, and the 7-year-old confessed. The matter is headed to juvenile court.
