In the face of hatred, we cannot be indifferent (opinion) - CNN



In the face of hatred, we cannot be indifferent (opinion) - CNN: (CNN)Barely seven decades ago, smoke billowed from the chimneys of the Auschwitz-Birkenau crematoria. They smoked incessantly because the German Nazis wanted to completely exterminate European Jews.
The Holocaust -- the Shoah -- did not come out of nowhere.
The Auschwitz concentration camp was established before the extermination camp came into being. Prior to that, Polish territories were occupied and incorporated into the Third Reich. Some time earlier still, the Second World War broke out across Europe. Before the war, Jews were deprived of fundamental rights and civil liberties in Germany. And before that, Adolf Hitler and his National Socialist German Workers' Party -- the Nazis -- won in democratic, free elections.

Thousands protest against anti-Islam, anti-immigration rally at Vancouver City Hall - BC | Globalnews.ca

Thousands protest against anti-Islam, anti-immigration rally at Vancouver City Hall - BC | Globalnews.ca: Brad Salzberg with the Cultural Action Party said Saturday’s protest wasn’t about supremacy.

“It’s not about supremacy, I don’t believe in racial supremacy. We are concerned about Islamic ideology or Sharia law becoming entrenched in our society as we have witnessed in Western European countries.”

An estimated 4,000 people attended a counter-rally at City Hall that was organized by an ad-hoc group calling itself Stand Up to Racism Metro Van.

Signs reading “live with love” and “diversity = strength” were spotted throughout the packed crowd as speakers talked about tolerance and the need for a more inclusive society.

Rae Figursky with Stand up Against Racism Metro Vancouver said the rally was about standing up for the values in the community.

Fallen forensics: Judges routinely allow disavowed science

Fallen forensics: Judges routinely allow disavowed science: [apnews.com] "I was saying, 'This can't be happening. You can't convict somebody on similarities, perhaps or maybes,'" Barnes said.

He spent the next 20 years in prison before DNA testing exonerated him, becoming one of hundreds of people convicted in whole or in part on forensic science that has come under fire during the past decade.

Some of that science — analysis of bite marks, latent fingerprints, firearms identification, burn patterns in arson investigations, footwear patterns and tire treads — was once considered sound, but is now being denounced by some lawyers and scientists who say it has not been studied enough to prove its reliability and in some cases has led to wrongful convictions.

Even so, judges nationwide continue to admit such evidence regularly.

"Courts — unlike scientists — rely too heavily on precedent and not enough on the progress of science," said Christopher Fabricant, director of strategic litigation for the Innocence Project. "At some point, we have to acknowledge that precedent has to be overruled by scientific reality."
