Really appalling. If Mods think it should go elsewhere then please move it.

Four police officers were "savagely attacked" by a knifeman who lured them to a property with a false 999 call, a court heard.

Alex Traykov, 20, allegedly used the alias Solomon to report a fight in Islington, north London, on 6 October.

When officers arrived at Liverpool Road, Mr Traykov was holding a knife behind his back, the Old Bailey heard.

Mr Traykov, of Redhill, Surrey, denies four charges of attempted murder and three charges of wounding with intent.

"Nothing could have prepared [the officers] for what awaited them or the fact that rather than seeking to break up violence against others they were about to be subjected to extreme violence themselves," prosecutor Duncan Atkinson QC said.

Isn't this quite similar to the way a couple of female PCs were lured and murdered a few years ago?

Japanese police are questioning the president of a company that manufactured anatomical skeletons after the discovery of the bones of an estimated 500 people in the garden of a suburban home in Tokyo.

The man, who has not been named as he has not yet been charged, is the head of a company called the Habara Skeletal Specimen Research Institute, the Mainichi newspaper reported, and has admitted disposing of the human remains in the garden of one of his employees.

The bones were discovered in November, after the death of the owner of the house in the Adachi district of Tokyo. Authorities launched an investigation when a police officer sent to the house discovered what appeared to be human bones in the garden.

That suspicion was quickly confirmed and forensic officers eventually recovered the partial remains of around 500 individuals.

Police sources told the newspaper that a person questioned in connection with the inquiry said the company president had imported the bones from India “a few decades ago to use for skeleton models”.

In papers sent to public prosecutors by the Metropolitan Police Department, the company president is accused of violating the Waste Management and Public Cleansing Act.

'Demon with fangs' arrested after woman found dead with 'bite marks' on neck:

A man with "fangs in his mouth and eyes like a demon" has been arrested over the alleged murder of a popular tattoo artist found with 'bite marks' on her neck.

Tatyana Podvashetskaya, 27, was found dead in her blood-soaked apartment in Ternopil, Ukraine, with stab wounds and 'bites' on her neck, reports said.



Police have detained 26-year-old Andrey Gorbatyuk in the murder probe and say he is suspected of visiting the victim on the night she died.
Detectives had earlier issued an appeal for Gorbatyuk, one of Tatyana's customers, and asked the public to report any sightings of the suspect.
He was described as having "fangs in his mouth and eyes like a demon," and "small horns" on his forehead, according to media reports citing the police appeal.

They were just itching to charge him with something.

A man in eastern China received a fine after a traffic camera using artificial intelligence captured him scratching his face, it's reported.

According to the Jilu Evening Post, the male motorist surnamed Liu was driving on Monday in Jinan, eastern Shandong province, and had raised his hand to scratch his face while passing a traffic camera. The next thing he knew, he'd received a notification instructing him that he had violated the laws of the road for "driving while holding a phone". A surveillance picture of his "offence" was attached. He was told that he would receive two points on his licence and was also ordered to pay a 50 yuan (£5.70; $7.25) fine.

A couple in the nearby town of Ystad, Sweden are accused of keeping their children "cut off from the world" as the newspapers put it.
They have 5 children, and it seems they have never attended school, can't tie their shoe laces, use the bathroom or any such simple things.
The police don't seem to be saying much, so the details could be different from what the newspapers report.

Couple kept their children isolated for nine years

Makes you wonder how often this sort of thing happens. One of the most famous cases was 'Genie' the feral child in Los Angeles.

They also can't peel bananas but I feel that is a bit lower down on the priority list of life skills. :bananas:
