    Predatory 13yo girls?

    Particularly shocking news to hear that a 13 year old girl can be called 'predatory' by both prosecution AND the judge. Seems it was this reason the man was spared jail... Thank goodness this case is now being reviewed and hopefully safeguards being put in place so it doesn't happen again...

    Fuentes trial

    I reckon this is the biggest sporting story of the year I'm sure the likes of Nadal, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Contador will be watching with interest. Apparently 7 professional footballers have died of heart problems in Spain in the last decade - almost twice as many as had died in the...

  8. Green Street Erupts, And Not a Hobbit In Sight

    Scenes that would make your casual hobbit masquerading as a hooligan squeal were on show tonight, as West Ham entertained Millwall in more ways than one. It was the draw that made half of East London wince and the other half salivate, the draw that made the Metropolitan Police kicked into...

    http://www.wm3.org/splash.php I was so angry when I read about this. In 1994, three young guys from Arkansas were convicted of a triple-murder with absolutely no physical evidence, motive or connection to the deceased. The prosecution "presented" evidence such as long hair, black clothing...
