Set American former jihadist Colleen LaRose who tried to kill me free, says Swedish political cartoonist
Colleen LaRose. an American woman who attempted to kill a Swedish cartoonist for insulting Islam and who faces sentencing in the United States on Monday, should be set free, the cartoonist himself, Lars Vilks, was quoted as saying by Sweden’s Tidningarnas Telegrambyrå (TT) news agency Saturday.
Prosecutors say LaRose should spend decades behind bars after converting to a radical form of Islam and becoming involved in a plot to kill Vilks in 2009 for penning a cartoon partially characterising the prophet Muhammad as a dog.
But as the sentencing approaches, Lars has intervened by suggesting LaRose — dubbed “Jihad Jane” — has probably put her past behind her and no longer poses a threat to him.

EPA Nifongs and Beales prosecute US hydrocarbons, jobs, living standards and health
Former Durham, NC district attorney Mike Nifong was disbarred for withholding evidence from the defense and lying to the court in the trumped-up Duke lacrosse team rape case. Ex-Boston crime lab technician Annie Dookhan was prosecuted for faking test results and contaminating drug samples, to get accused dealers convicted. In both cases, charges against their victims were dismissed or are under review.
So how should we handle federal officials who’ve become unethical researchers and prosecutors – determined to get convictions, basing their cases on esoteric circumstantial evidence, allowing tainted and fraudulent evidence, hiding exculpatory information, rewriting the law, and denying defense counsel the right to cross-examine adverse witnesses or present their case?
As the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow explains in its amicus curiae brief to the US Supreme Court, that’s what Environmental Protection Agency regulators have been doing with global warming. They’re pulling every dirty prosecutorial trick in the book, to convict fossil fuels, carbon dioxide, and America’s economy and living standards of “endangering” the public welfare.

There are many possible explanations for this sorry state of affairs, but one factor that doesn’t add anything positive […]

Inequality is the condition of being unequal- in size, intelligence etc.
It definitely exits….A President or Mayor of a metropolis, or Senate Majority leader, or Secretary of Defense are definitely unequal to the tasks for which they were elected.
No doubt about it….rsk
