This is all kinds of disgusting (and for once it's not about Brexit)*


*Though it is, of course, about harassing a female MP who dares to express her opinions and who doesn't back down.

Man arrested for scalding, drowning child to save him from "demon"

Papers filed in a federal court in Arizona detail how the police and fire department responded to the scene on the Pascua Yaqui Indian Reservation near Tucson, Arizona, on Sept. 26, after getting a call about a burned child.

A woman at the scene identified as Romelia Martinez, who authorities later confirmed was the adopted mother of the 6-year-old boy, said that Pablo Martinez, who is identified in court filings as the boy's father, offered to bathe the 6-year-old and another child, police said. ... ...and when she unlocked the door, she found Pablo Martinez holding the 6-year-old under the faucet, according to the court papers.

Pablo Martinez allegedly told her that "he had to do it," police say.

According to officers at the scene, Pablo Martinez allegedly told them that the child "was demonic, had a demon inside him, and he needed to save him," the court papers said. Martinez allegedly told responding officers that he had poured hot water down the child's throat, and estimated that the child was underwater for five to 10 minutes.

Romelia Martinez also told police that the child "had been acting demonic," the court filing said.

The child was found lying naked, propped up by a pillow on a bed in the residence. After the child was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital, the criminal filing states that the medical staff found the child had burns over about 15% of his body, including on his forearms, elbows and head.

A spokesperson for the FBI said the agency is investigating the case along with tribal police.

So, she's claiming she wrote what she wrote out of concern for the homeless. Strangely though none of what she wrote seems to address the homeless themselves, just the inconvenience (and imagined security risks) of them.

I'd say If there's anything at all that could be called proof positive that an immigrant is ready to assimilate perfectly into American life, it's not being able to afford health care.

Word.

Repubs are working overtime to convince poor whites that the reason they don't have any social benefits is because immigrants took it all. When I try to point out to such people that the real problem is Republicans refusing to fund things, they tend to double down with tangents. They seem to think there's a "them" in charge of things other than the Republicans they voted for. They don't seem to understand how things work.

The new Anti-Vaxers?

Conspiracy theorists spreading health scares about the 5G mobile network are pressuring local authorities to ban the technology from their towns.

Totnes in Devon announced this week that it was joining the Somerset councils of Glastonbury and Frome in opposing 5G until they were satisfied that it was safe.

Shepton Mallet, also in Somerset, has followed suit after lobbying by activists. The district council said that it would not endorse the technology “until there is more independent, disinterested scientific consensus that 5G wireless radiation is harmless”.

Lobbyists are targeting dozens more councils with meetings, spreading the claim that 5G radio waves can cause increases in cancer, dementia, depression, anxiety, suicide, infertility and autism. The bans are raising fears in the government that people are being persuaded to discount scientific evidence.
