      STOGNER v.CALIFORNIA (statute of limitations case)

      from mparent
      Students in Japan challenge rape stigma Howard W. French NYT 6/30/03
      "Experts say that molestation and statutory rape are common in schools across Japan,
      and that victims rarely come forward. To do so would violate a host of
      powerful social conventions." http://www.iht.com/articles/101176.htm

      Former republican Senator John Decamp was involved in the production a
      documentary called "Conspiracy of Silence" it was to air May 3, 1994 on the
      Discovery Channel. This documentary exposed a network of religious leaders and
      Washington politicians who flew children to Washington D.C. for sex orgies. At the
      last minute before airing, unknown congressmen threatened the TV Cable industry
      with restrictive legislation if this documentary was aired."

      Group: U.S. Iraqi Detentions Violate Law
      30.06.2003 [16:11]
      Amnesty International said Monday it has gathered evidence that points to
      U.S. violations of international law by subjecting Iraqi prisoners to "cruel,
      inhuman or degrading" conditions at its detention centers here. The report
      coincides with a two-day United Nations conference on human rights that began in
      Baghdad on Monday. The conference, which focuses on abuses committed during the
      rule of Saddam Hussein, will coordinate investigations into the regime's
      alleged killings of some 300,000 Iraqis. London-based Amnesty International said
      hundreds of Iraqis held at U.S.-run tent camps and former Iraqi government
      prisons have been denied the right to see families or lawyers or have a judge
      review their detention.

      Iraqi details harsh treatment as Amnesty criticizes U.S. interrogation

      thought the Americans were capable of this.''

      Oakland calling on Big Brother to watch workers
      Phillip Matier, Andrew Ross Wednesday, June 18, 2003
      Oakland is considering bringing in a new boss to get the lead out of its city
      workers -- Big Brother. As part of City Council President Ignacio De La
      Fuente's plan to fix up the city's rundown parks, the city would install global
      tracking devices in 150 city work trucks to keep an eye on everyone. The city
      would also buy a slew of digital "real time" cameras that crews would be required
      to set up and take "before" and "after" pictures of the work done at parks.
