US-trained Somali soldiers defect to al-Qaida

http://www.guardian.co.uk

Hundreds of Somali soldiers trained with US funding have deserted, with some crossing over to the al-Qaida-linked militants they are supposed to be fighting, it emerged today.

The troops, backed with millions of US dollars, are leaving the ranks because they are not receiving their $100 (£65) monthly wage. The desertions raise fears that an American-backed drive next month to strengthen Somalia's army may increase the ranks of the insurgency.

Creepy PA "Tax Amnesty" Advertisment

http://www.pataxpayup.com

The PA dept. of revenue recently started a "tax amnesty" program for people who "owe" PA back taxes. The advertising campaign they launched for this, with the money of the people they are attempting to extort, is, to put it mildly, super creepy. All of them are along the lines of "we know who you are, where you are, and WE OWN YOUR STUFF." The URL goes straight to their advertising campaign webpage, where they have kindly posted all of the spots, probably thinking they are funny, rather than threatening and creepy.

Judge throws out arrest of cop accused in fatal DUI crash

http://www.chicagobreakingnews.com

A Cook County judge today ruled that a Chicago police officer accused of drunk driving in a fatal crash on Thanksgiving 2007 was arrested and detained without probable cause.

Judge Thomas V. Gainer Jr. also called the police lieutenant who ordered Officer John Ardelean's arrest not a credible witness.

"Probable cause to arrest in this case comes down to the credibility of Lt. (John) Magruder and this court does not believe Lt. Magruder's testimony," Gainer wrote in his opinion.
