I can only imagine the kind of humiliation this poor girl felt upon seeing these images, circulating around the school as if they were hockey cards. Philip Perry, 18, and Barton Reeder, 18, and two 17-year-old boys, all from Mississauga, have been charged with gang sexual assault, sexual assault with a weapon, sexual assault, uttering death threats and manufacturing child pornography.
Well, I've noticed I've had quite a few hits on my blog from people searching for these pictures. I message for you people. You are as vile as those who committed the assault!

Now the younger son, who was at the game that night watching his dad and brother, but not involved in the fracas was arrested for organizing a drive by shooting.
Michael Ligue, now 18, and four others are accused of pulling up to an apartment building while a in the car girl opened fire, using a gun she stole from her father's bedroom. They were avenging the beating of 17-year-old co-defendant Jacob Johnson's girlfriend, who was attacked by the intended victim's sister.
Ligue's father, William Ligue Jr., 39, remains in state prison on a 57-month sentence for violating his original probationary sentence. He is slated for release in June.
So the family tradition lives on- being a bonehead and doing time.
Because of the photos and subsequent notoriety, Barba received several offers from adult entertainment outlets.
Also, adult film purveyor SugarDVD offered Barba $500,000 to become the company's celebrity person.
As of Thursday, Barba hasn't commented on the offers. She has suggested she is more interested in modelling and singing careers. I'm not sure that she has enough talent but she should give them a try. But I'm sure the bidding will go up from the purveyors of smut.

Justice Maurice Hudson placed Barton Reeder, 18, and Philip Perry, 18, under house arrest after releasing them into the custody of their parents following a lengthy bail hearing in a Brampton courtroom. Two other 17-year-old boys were released into the custody of their parents and placed under house arrest in connection with their role in what police alleged was a gang sexual assault of an unconscious female in the early hours of Feb. 25.
As part of the strict conditions for their bail, Justice Hudson banned Perry and Reeder from using cell phones or computers. They’re also prohibited from accessing the Internet or communicating with the victim, their co-accused or 17 other named people.
One of 17-year-old boys was placed a curfew of between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. and also banned from using any cell phones or electronic devices that can transmit information. He also can’t use the Internet although he’s allowed to use a computer for educational reasons but only under supervision. He also can’t communicate with his co-accused or any of 17 other named people

The movie pictures a world that looks a lot like our own, but darker, grimmer and more frighteningly, violently precarious. It imagines a world drained of hope and defined by terror in which bombs regularly explode in cafes crowded with men and women on their way to work.
Kee (Clare-Hope Ashitey) is the centre of the story and its defiantly hopeful heart because she’s pregnant, the first woman on earth to carry a child after 18 barren years. Avowedly apolitical, Theo (Clive Owen) agrees to help deliver Kee into the care of a shadowy utopian group, the Human Project.
Where they eventually land is in a hell that looks chillingly similar to the Iraqi combat areas of newspaper reportage, television news and mostly uncensored documentaries. There are several heart-gripping set pieces before then, including a hugely unsettling ambush scene shot almost entirely from inside a car crammed with passengers. The sets and scenery just blow you away.
Anderson guy pulled down his pants and let Peterson spray him with lighter fluid. When the fire didn't catch, Peterson sprayed more lighter fluid on Anderson, splashing some on his clothing. He tried again to light the fire, catching Anderson's genitals, hands and clothes.
Anderson ran into the bathroom, jumped into the tub and put the flames out. Other guests took him to Luther Hospital, and eventually he was treated at the Regions Hospital Burn Unit in St. Paul, Minn., for second-degree burns.So....was alcohol involved? Maybe just a little?
Now a British report suggests that military strikes to destroy Iran's nuclear ambitions could backfire, increasing Tehran's determination to obtain atomic weapons and bolstering hostility toward the West, a report said on Monday. With inadequate intelligence, it is unlikely it would be possible to identify and subsequently destroy the number of targets needed to set back Iran's nuclear program for a significant period.
Iran is likely to have built secret facilities underground as well as "false targets" designed to look like nuclear sites and act as decoys. Strikes would also interrupt oil supplies and impact the global economy and could set off nuclear contamination.

If you thought February was particularly cold, you were right.
Frigid conditions made the month the coldest February in 28 years, according to Environment Canada’s senior climatologist David Phillips.
Not since 1979 has February dished up such bone-rattling conditions.
The average temperature was -8.4C, which was three degreescolder than normal.
That also made it the fifth coldest February since 1937 when weather records were first kept at what is now Pearson International Airport.

One of President George W. Bush’s twin daughters is writing a book about a teen mother in Central America who has the AIDS virus. Not sure which one. Either the blond bimbo or the brunette bimbo.
Anway this should be good for a laugh.
So you thought cell phone users were the only problem.

Meanwhile, this seems to offer a whole new set of tactics for hostage negotiators
Police have closed part of the downtown Gardiner Expressway over fears of falling ice from the CN Tower.
High winds along with the sun warming up a sheet of ice on the side of the CN Tower, which built up after last week's ice storm, are resulting in slippery slabs falling hundreds of feet to the streets below. At least one sizeable piece has already fallen onto the busy expressway. The strong gusts are also carrying baseball-sized frozen chunks off the top of the Tower, and in some cases they're being carried quite a distance because of the powerful winds.

Clad in a smartly tailored suit and black turtleneck sweater, he exhibited a warm, funny demeanor and was more likely to give a lesson than a punishment to a student who had gotten into trouble.
His bosses considered him visionary, students saw him as a friend, and parents could tell he cared about their children.
Despite his $97,667 principal's salary, John Acerra lives on Chestnut Street in Allentown, along a row of mostly dilapidated homes and vacant apartments rife with boarded-up windows and doors. Acerra's own residence at 832 Chestnut has what appears to be bullet holes in the windows." (source)
Police said there was no proof that Acerra was selling drugs to students, and an informant said he sold to them from his school office on weekends and after school hours sometimes." (source)
This is what really bothered me about the story. "People who worked with him including some of his friends weren't surprised that the kind, free spirit they knew was arrested Tuesday night in his school office on charges of selling crystal methamphetamine to a police informant, said Karen Dolan, a district teacher who spent 11 years at Nitschmann.
Over the past five years, the times he arrived hours late for school, missed school altogether, kept himself hidden behind the frequently locked office door or showed up at school activities dressed like a teenager all pointed to a life in free-fall, said Dolan, who is also a Bethlehem councilwoman."
So why didn't anyone say or do anything?
