    http://www.news10.com/story/25230470/pakistan-judge-dismisses-9-month-olds-murder-case

    ISLAMABAD (AP) – A Pakistani judge dismissed an attempted murder case Saturday that police lodged against a 9-month-old boy, ending a bizarre case that drew new criticism to the country’s troubled criminal justice system.

    The family of toddler Mohammad Musa had kept the boy in hiding after authorities pressed charges accusing him of trying to kill police officers after a neighborhood brawl in Pakistan’s eastern city of Lahore. Judge Rafaqat Ali Qamar dropped the case against the boy during a hearing in which police announced they would no longer pursue the charges, defense lawyer Irfan Tarar said.

    “The father of toddler produced him before the judge today,” Tarar said. “The boy was in the arms of his father when police submitted a report, stating they have dropped the charge against the boy.”

    ////

    Finally…..some did something right by this 9 month old boy.

      They Keep Forgetting that the GOOGLE will unearth the many lies they spew.

      Unfortunately, they spew the lies for the right mega media echo chamber will drive their propaganda and MSM will regurgitate the lies as facts……..The Truth Soldiers…….are always playing catch up trying to debunk the 24/7 media lie machines.

        That’s it Nena, they actually think they can get away with this kind of fakery – although, when they only watch Fox they’ll never be treated to the truth.

    lol, beebs commentator is skewing mcllroy

    This is brilliant. Rory McIlroy, the world number nine and two-time major winner, is hunting in the trees on the 13th as Augusta member Jeff Knox, who is playing as a marker for the Northern Irishman, waits patiently on the fairway. Rory eventually has to take a drop.

    While Jeff Knox makes McIlroy look like an amateur, both Ian Poulter and Rickie Fowler have birdied the second to get down to one over. First-round leader Bill Haas has picked up shots at both the second and third to get to level par.
