  • A Winnipeg radio host, Dave Wheeler, has been fired for comparing trans-identified people to actors who “pretend to be different things,” also saying in a private conversation on Facebook Messenger:

“If someone is born human. And they pretend to be a dog. It is not right to agree with them for the sake of their feelings.”

  • A former UK Independence Party (UKIP) councillor has been arrested over the murder of his wife, Anne Searle, who had discovered he was having an affair.
  • An inspection of police forces in the UK has revealed that police simply don’t record, and therefore don’t investigate, thousands of crimes reported every year, including cases of rape, domestic violence, and other violent offenses.
