August 31, 2018 08:46 PM Three cities in Germany. Three crimes. On Oct. 16, 2016, in Freiburg, the Afghan asylum-seeker Hussein K. raped a 19-year-old university student, leaving her unconscious on the banks of a river in which she then drowned. For weeks afterward, there was a palpable sense of anxiety in the city. A demonstration against the federal government's refugee policies was registered, but only very few turned up to march. Six months after the crime, the perpetrator was sentenced to life in prison, after which the anxiety dissipated. The message: Freiburg wants to remain a liberal city, despite this horrific crime. On Aug. 16, 2018, in Offenburg, a city in southwestern Germany near the French border, a 26-year-old man from Somalia stabbed a general practitioner to death in his practice in front of his assistant. A state parliamentarian from the right-wing populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) party ascribed "direct complicity in the death of the doctor" to both the … [Read more...] about Return of the Ugly German?

THINGS GET MOVING IN POLAND: Poland’s supreme court has requested a preliminary ruling from the European Court of Justice in an attempt to prevent judges in the country from being forced into early retirement, Jan Cienski reports. The Polish court wants to know whether the Law and Justice government breached European law by lowering judges’ retirement age midway through their term. In the same ruling, the Polish court halted the new legislation — and thereby escalated its constitutional conflict with the government. That may or may not speed up Brussels’ proceedings against Poland’s judiciary laws, but it will certainly ensure the case will land on the … [Read more...] about POLITICO Brussels Playbook: Will Kurz show his mettle? — Crowdsourcing for Juncker — Double Dutch for Puigdemont

Meg Jones Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Published 4:21 p.m. UTC May 28, 2018 MILWAUKEE — It's a funny line so it always gets chuckles when Mike Voorhees says it. Voorhees spent months in the jungles of Vietnam as an Army dog handler and when he returned home from war he became a chaplain. "I have one distinction no other pastor can say. I can say Satan saved my life at least three times," said Voorhees. The Satan in Voorhees' life was a highly trained German Shepherd who worked as a scout dog in Vietnam for several years. Not only did Satan save Voorhees' life, he saved many other American GIs before dying of a tick disease. Voorhees will give the invocation at the Highground Veterans Memorial on Saturday for the unveiling of a new memorial to military dogs like Satan. "I'm so grateful that the Highground is doing this. I'm just overwhelmed with gladness and joy that finally the dogs are getting the recognition that they much deserved," said Voorhees.
