British Priest condones Shoplifting

A British Anglican priest is facing criticism following a controversial sermon where he advises his congregation to shoplift, according to a report from The Daily Mail.

Rev. Tim Jones, 41, told his followers that stealing from large chain stores is sometimes the best option for the poor. He said it is better for people to steal than resort to prostitution, mugging or burglary.

He also said that it is better to steal from large, national businesses rather than small businesses.
North Yorkshire Police called the sermon "highly irresponsible" and encouraged those in difficult circumstances to "seek government support".  Why Honest People Shoplift or Commit Other Acts of Theft: Assessment and Treatment of 'Atypical Theft Offenders' - A Comprehensive Resource for Professionals and Laypersons

The Daily Mail reported that Rev. Jones claims his sermon at St. Lawrence Church in York did not violate the Bible commandment "Thou shalt not steal" because God's love for the poor is more important than the property rights of the rich.

Pope Knocked over

Today's Viral Video and Breaking News item was that of the Pope Benedict  being dragged to the ground by a woman in a red pulover who jumped over the railings as His Holiness walked past and rushed into him, knocking him down as she grabbed him whilst falling.

security guards were pretty quick to react, i mean, the Pope still ended up being dragged to the ground as she grabbed him, but security was almost instant in their reactions, grabbing the "assailant" Miss Susanna Maiolo (25) and helping the Pope back to his feet. Pope Benedict then continued his procession as normal, if only perhaps slightly stunned. Uncannily, although the Pope was completely unhurt,Cardinal Etchegaray (87) who was standing a few meters away from the Pope when the incident occured, suffered a broken leg, and was carted off to hospital.

Miss Maiolo is currently also in Hospital under observation. Apparently, this isn't the forst time that Miss Maiolo has attempted to rush the Pope by jumping over a barrier; she is alleged to have tried to do the same thing last year too!

A Vatican spokesman stated that Maiolo (a Swiss Italian) was "apparently unbalanced," but that they would be "very lenient" with her and said that she would be pardoned. "It was an assault, but it wasn't dangerous because she wasn't armed,"

Jamie Bain Innocent and freed after 35 years

Florida man declared innocent and freed after 35 years in Jail
James Bain, a Florida Citizen who was released after 35 years in Jail for the kidnapping and rape of a nine year old boy, after DNA tests proved that he was not guilty of the crime, has stated to reporters that he is "not angry" about the mistake made which cost him 30 years of his freedom.
Bain was convicted and sentenced to Life at the age of 19 under charges of kidnapping, burglary and "strong-arm rape". As a reason for his not being angry, he said that he has "God in my head". He apppeared to reporters after his aquittal wearing a T-Shirt with the words "Not Guilty" emblazoned on the front.

To date, DNA testing has exonerated up to 250 people, but Mr. Bain is the person who has spent longest behind bars before his eventual aquittal and release (data obtained from the Innocence Project).
In Florida it has only been allowed to re-open a case in order to make DNA testing since 2001. Bain was only allowed this test after the fifth time that he submitted a hadnwritten motion, and then only after an appeal court ruled that he was entitled to the review.
At first, the Courts were expected to lay down some conditions for Bain's release because they had called for furhter extensive tests, which were made, but this was dropped because the tests were completed and presented early before the court hearing date. As he anulled the judgement, the judge is reputed to have said

"Mr. Bain, I'm now signing the order, sir, You are a free man. Congratulations" , and his Life sentence.
In the case leading to Bain's conviction, the victim Lake Wales,had told Law Enforcement authorities that his assailant had "Bushy sideburns and a moustache" The victim was then given five photos to look at and he picked Bain out from them.
The victim has apparenty been told about Bain proven innocence and subsequent release.
After leaving the courtrooms and being asked what he is going to do, he said "I am going to see my Mom" is Mothe has said that she is going to put her house and car in his name and that "My son has suffered enough"

Are Aliens Flying over Turkey?

Ufo over Turkey
A lot of chattering is going on lately over a couple of videos which have been spreading virally over the internet of an unidentified flying object in the skies over Istanbul, Turkey which was filmed on two occasions by local fishermen.
One of the videos appears to show aliens sitting on the edge of a crescent shaped craft which is seen hovering in the sky. What is strange about the matter is the fact that thw witnesses are honest run of the mill fishermen, and do not seem to be ufo buffs in any sense of the word. Although such a thing could easily be brushed off as "Humbug", the videos seem to be authentic, and are beginning to cause widespread interest around thw orld, appearing on you tube and daily motion the clips are being spread around on blogs all over the internet and blogosphere.
