Nine-month-old boy charged with attempted murder in Pakistan granted bail by judge

A nine-month-old boy charged with planning a murder, threatening police and interfering with state affairs in Pakistan has been granted bail after appearing in court this week.
Toddler Muhammad Mosa Khan was booked in February along with 30 other people, including a number of members of his family, after stones were allegedly thrown at police and energy officials during raids on homes in Lahore. Residents had been accused of not paying for electricity.
Apparently deciding that the nine month old was capable of – and had – taken part in the alleged stone throwing, Sub-Inspector Kashif Ahmed decided to arrest the child.
What followed were farcical scenes in which the toddler was fingerprinted and made to sit on his grandfather’s lap in court, drinking his bottle.
The judge quickly granted bail for the child, along with the other people accused in the case.  Baby Muhammad is however currently expected back in court on 12 April – although the judge apparently noted the absurd nature of the charge, he does not have the powers to dismiss the case against him.
The judge quickly granted bail for the child, along with the other people accused in the case. 
The toddlers grandfather, Mohammad Yaseen told Reuters: “He was booked under Section 326 and was presented before a court. He doesn’t even know how to pick up his milk bottle properly. How can he stone the police?”
Sub-Inspector Ahmed has reportedly been since suspended as a result of making the arrest and Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif said stern action will be taken against the police officials who registered the case.
The age of criminal responsibility in Pakistan is supposed to be 12-years-old.

On This Day In 1995: Rapper Eazy-E Dies Of Complications From AIDS

“I’m not a role model or a Dr. Seuss. Yo I’m a gangsta.” Eazy-E personified the tone of Gangsta Rap. Coming from Compton, California, the face of Ruthless Records along with his team N.W.A, Eric Wright let off a loud shot that is still –and will always be– heard.

Many are able to embody the persona of gangsta rap. That’s thanks to the likes of Schooly D, Ice-T, and N.W.A. The difference between the two former when compared to the latter, is Eazy-E. A true entrepreneur, if it wasn’t the rap game, his money would’ve (as it has) been made regardless.

In 1986 Eazy-E went into business with Jerry Heller to create Ruthless Records. It’s often told that Wright used up to $250,000 of his own money –which he made in the streets– to fund this endeavor. Because of this, as Jerry Heller mentioned in his memoir titled, Ruthless, Eazy-E owned 80% of the rights to the company.

Yeah, I was a brother on the streets of
Compton doing a lot of things most people look down on but it did pay off. Then we started rapping about real stuff that shook up the LAPD and the FBI. But we got our message across big time, and everyone in America started paying attention to the boys in the hood. Said Eazy E.

a national audience, as well as Ice Cube. Their method: Gangsta Rap. It would be the harsh lyrics and gritty portrayal of the gang activity, crime, racial discrimination, police brutality, and day-to-day life in a predominately black area during the Reagan/Crack-era that would solidify not only the record company but the groups and acts associated as hip-hop royalty.

In nine short years after the creation of Ruthless Records, the world would lose Eric “Eazy-E” Wright to complications from AIDS.

R.I.P Eazy E.

She was nominated for best supporting actress for her role in “12 Years a Slave.” Her role as Patsey, the abused house slave with naive hopes of freedom, won most major critics’ awards, and placed her at the top of her game in Hollywood. She became a household name overnight. Here are 10 things you didn’t know about Lupita Nyong’o.

Her multi-cultural heritage

Lupita Nyong’o was born in Mexico to Kenyan parents of the Luo communihty (also President Obama’s people). Her first name is traditionally Mexican, and her surname is very rare in Kenya. Her father, Peter Anyang Nyong’o, a politician — and now a member of the Kenyan parliament — at one time sought refuge in Mexico. When it was safe to return, he took the family back to Kenya. Lupita was raised in Nairobi.

Her ‘Constant Gardener’ resumé

Remember that Oscar-winning 2004 film with Ralph Fiennes and Rachel Weisz? Lupita was visiting family friends outside of Nairobi, and stumbled serendipitously into the film set. Days later, she was hired as Fiennes’ runner. When he inquired about her future prospects and she timidly said she wanted to act, he gave her advice to carry her into her successful future: “Lupita, only act if you can’t breathe without it.”

Kenyan TV

Before her international career launched, Lupita was cast in the Kenyan TV series “Shuga: Love, Sex, Money” in 2008. A popular, and sometimes controversial series commissioned by MTVBase, it chronicled the coming of age of a group of young Kenyans experiencing sexual awakenings. The main objective of the series was to spread HIV/AIDS awareness.

Her life at film school

Lupita enrolled in the film and theater studies program at Hampshire College in Massachusetts. She plowed her way through the four-year program ambitiously; where most students were required to make two films, Lupita made five. Professors lauded her for her passion and hard work. This led to high points in her early film career.

She made a documentary

And this was even before Yale! Thinking she wanted her plan B to be film making, she didn’t hold back. In 2009, Lupita wrote, directed, and produced “In My Genes.” The documentary followed Agnes, a Kenyan who is part of the country’s underserved albino population. Anticipate more filmmaking work from Lupita, it’s in her genes as well.

Yale: she’s no slouch

On her way back to Kenya after graduation, Lupita chanced a stab at a place in the Yale School of Drama’s highly competitive three-year master of fine arts program. Naturally, she slid in like nothing. For the program’s duration, she was cast in many stage productions and roles, including as Katherine in “The Taming of the Shrew,” and Sonya in “Uncle Vanya.”

Her ’12 Years A Slave’ casting

The diploma wasn’t even in her hand yet, when she sent a tape in to the casting director of “12 Years a Slave.” When finally making it out to Los Angeles for a face-to-face with casting director Francine Maisler, Lupita was sideswiped by the intense audition process. The audition required her to enter promptly into the most grueling, violent moments of her character’s scenes. Back in Connecticut, sunbathing, she received a phone call from the director, Steve McQueen. The rest is history!

Her ’12 Years A Slave’ Process

Lupita leaped into the role with a mixture of fervor and understandable trepidation. In Solomon Northrup’s biography upon which the film is based, the author described the stunning impression Patsey made on him: “(She had) an air of loftiness, that neither labor nor lash could rid of her.” It was up to Lupita to find this hard blend, a mixture of childlike hopefulness despite her unspeakable sadness and anguish.

Her ownership of the red carpet

On Jan. 16 2014, Lupita’s name was mentioned with four other talented actresses as a nominee for the Best Supporting Actress of 2013. She is pictured above at the Golden Globes in Ralph Lauren, where her carpet walk caused a sensation; she was included on tons of best-dressed lists including Vanity Fair, Huffington Post, and Today.com. We can’t wait to see her Oscar dress!

Her Bright Future

Already a part of upcoming films, like the Liam Neeson vehicle “Non-Stop,” to be released in February. She is also the new face of Miu Miu, and has graced the covers of “Dazed and Confused” and “W.” While she will certainly not be wearing her new “It” girl status materialistically, we anticipate both important film roles and her smiling, gorgeous presence at awards shows in the near future. The winner is Lupita Nyong’o!

US Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday compared tough new anti-gay laws enacted in Uganda to anti-Semitic legislation in Nazi Germany or apartheid in South Africa.

“You could change the focus of this legislation to black or… Jewish, and you could be in 1930s Germany or you could be in 1950s, 60s apartheid South Africa,” the top US diplomat told a small group of reporters.

On Monday, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni signed a bill into law which holds that “repeat homosexuals” should be jailed for life, outlaws the promotion of homosexuality and requires people to denounce gays.

“What has happened in Uganda is atrocious, and it presents all of us with an enormous challenge, because LGBT rights are human rights. It’s that simple,” Kerry told reporters.

“The signing of this anti-homosexuality bill is flat-out morally wrong.”

Referring to anti-Semitism in Nazi Germany and apartheid in South Africa, the top US diplomat said “it was wrong there egregiously, in both places, and it is wrong here.”

But he also warned that discrimination against gays was “bigger than just Uganda” saying there were currently 78 other countries in which “you have these laws that are just contrary to human rights and contrary to human nature.”

Referring to the spread of anti-gay legislation, Kerry said “it’s not just an African problem, it’s a global problem, and we’re wrestling with it.”

Activists working for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights had pushed Museveni to block the legislation.
