RT.COM:  In the far-eastern Russian city of Yakutsk, over twenty schoolchildren met in the school yard to witness a fight between two girl classmates and whilst one mercilessly beat the other over a joke gone wrong, the schoolchildren videod the event without even trying to stop the beating. The beating was so horrific that the crime-incident hardened law enforcement officers viewing a video of the event had struggled to control tears.

The mother of the beaten girl says that she used to be friends with her the other girl who had beaten her, but the girls had had an disagreement a few months ago when teasingly, the beaten girl had poured water over the other’s head which appears to have motivated the attack.

The assaulted girl’s family are considering legal action against her assailant and the police have begun criminal procedures to bring justice to the matter.

Police go ‘cookoo’ over cookies

[Anne Wilson, Arts and Current Affairs Contributor]

A cookie-selling Girl Scout Troop in Georgia, USA, were ordered by a policeman to get a peddler’s permit, or stop selling their cookies. The horrified girls had to pack up and turn away customers who were waiting to sample their delicious ware, said the girl’s Troop Leader (Troop 7984). She claims that the incident frightened the girls who thought that their customers were about to be arrested and jailed.

The Mayor has since explained that the incident was caused by an over-zealous police officer and that it was a simple misunderstanding.  He has offered the girls a pizza party and tour of the police department as a gesture.

Who will make the pizza’s, it has not yet been revealed, perhaps the ‘over-zealous’ officer? So far there has been no take-up from Troop 7984.
