6-Year-Old Hauled to Psych Ward Despite Parent’s Wishes

http://moms.today.com

A little boy’s Los Angeles school sent him to the psychiatric ward against his mom’s wishes. Anxiety over his dad’s deployment to Iraq led the boy to “[draw] a violent picture and [write] that he wanted to die,” which prompted the school’s reaction. When the mother told officials she would have the boy see a therapist that day, she was told it was already out of her hands – the ambulance was on its way. The tyke spent 48 hours in the ward before finally being released to his mother’s care, the trauma of this experience only compounding the trauma of his father’s departure..

15yo prevented from delivering paper at 6:45am, it's illegal

http://www.dailymail.co.uk

Come rain or shine, hard-working teenager Sam Green-Jeffries ­diligently dragged himself out of bed to start his paper round at 6.45 every morning.

So it was a shock when he found that his two years’ devotion to duty meant he was breaking a bizarre law banning children from working before 7am.

Now the 15-year-old – whose dedication has won him a national award – may be forced to quit because starting later is making him late for school.

Incredibly, bureaucrats stepped in after they were tipped off by an anonymous busybody.

Malawi's Controversial Ban on Public Farting

http://www.theregister.co.uk

The law will be enforced in a similar way to that banning public urination, with local chiefs tasked with bringing noxious gasbags to justice. However, the minister has been challenged by the solicitor general, who says that the justice minister's interpretation of the offending Local Courts Bill clause is taking the piss. Said clause declares: "Any person who vitiates the atmosphere in any place so as to make it noxious to the public to the health of persons in general dwelling or carrying on business in the neighbourhood or passing along a public way shall be guilty of a misdemeanour."

Homeland Security Takes Down Live Streaming Sites before Super Bowl

http://www.readwriteweb.com

This and other articles refer to takedowns of various sites that link to live streams of sporting events--not coincidentally, just before the Super Bowl. Many sites taken down aren't even in the United States, such as Rojadirecta.org, and none of them actually host the streams. Rojadirecta, in Spain, has even been ruled completely legal by Spanish courts. Yet, the heavy-handed US government continues to push its weight around the globe.

The Judicial Crackdown on Jury Rights Activists in Florida

http://theinternationallibertarian.blogspot.com

What could possibly be more conducive to "…protecting the integrity of the jury system…" than informing juries of one of their powers? Does the judge not want to see the jury system working as it should, as a check on tyrannical government? It would seem not, otherwise he would welcome the FIJA activists educational efforts at his court. Obviously, the judge likes his juries obedient and easily manipulated.

Scots won't know what porn law they've broken until they're prosecuted

http://www.theregister.co.uk

A spokesman told us: "We do not publicly disclose our prosecution policy in relation to specific offences as to do so may allow offenders to adapt or restrict their behaviour to conduct which falls short of our prosecution threshold."

They added that any such information would also be exempt from any attempt to tease it out by using Freedom of Information legislation.
