Perform Racial Insults, US Men Sentenced Trial

A man who admits to a racist insult and threatens a woman in a street fight incident in Pennsylvania last year has been sentenced to 10 years probation.

58-year-old Roger Chenault pleaded guilty last week intimidating ethnic loads, terrorist threats, attacks and reckless driving. He has spent a month in jail.

Prosecutors in Lancaster County say the white Chenault turned a corner in front of a black woman on Route 999 last July and confronted him. Prosecutors added Chenault threatened to shoot him.

Chenault says workplace injuries that cause his left leg to be amputated and making him a wheelchair have influenced his mind. But the judge said it was not a reason to condone his cause. He has previously been found guilty of offensive in 2013 and related incidents of street rage. [em/ii]

Israel Shoots Dead Palestinian Men Suspect Shooting Rabbi

West Bank
Israeli troops shot dead a Palestinian man they call the prime suspect of a rabbi's fatal shooting last month.

Israeli security service Shin Bet said it had shot dead Ahmad Nassar Jarrar during a raid on Tuesday (6/2) early morning local time in a building in the city of al-Yamun, near the West Bank town of Jenin.

The Shin Bet mentioned as reported by Iranian media, Press TV, Tuesday (6/2/2018), Israeli troops fired on Jarrar when the 22-year-old man left the building, carrying an M-16 assault rifle and a bag of explosives.

Rabbi or a Jewish priest named Raziel Shevach was shot dead near his home in Havat Gilad area, near the West Bank town of Nablus on January 9. Since then, Israeli troops launched a massive search operation in Jenin, Jarrar's home town. Israeli troops even destroyed the Palestinian man's house in an earlier attempt to arrest him.

Last month, Hessam Badran, a member of the Hamas Political Bureau praised the man responsible for killing the rabbi as a hero. According to him, the shooting incident was a natural reaction to the Israeli regime's atrocities against the Palestinians. He also called the shootings a slap in the face of the Israeli regime and a response to US President Donald Trump's move to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Japanese Princess Delays Her Marriage with Ordinary Men, What's Up?

 Mako's daughter, granddaughter of Japan's Emperor Akihito, delayed her marriage to a man who was not from the nobility, Kei Komuro. What is the reason?

Mako and Komuro got engaged in September 2017 and is already planning a wedding in November 2018. Suddenly, the couple changed their minds.

"It's because of our immaturity and we regret it," the couple said in a written statement.

The second marriage was postponed until at least 2020. This is certainly a surprise because Mako and Komuro's marriages have been eagerly awaited by Japanese before Emperor Akihito abdicated in April 2019.

Mako admitted that he and Komuro rush in running things. He felt the need for more time to plan for the future.

"I will think of marriage more deeply and give enough time to prepare for marriage as well as life after marriage," Mako said.

A source in the Japanese Empire told CNN that the marriage was postponed due to lack of preparation. Princess Mako has already passed this decision to her grandparents, Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko. They respect Mako Princess's decision.

"We're really sorry for causing big problems and burdening those who already support us," Mako said.

Mako and Komuro first acquainted in 2012 when they met at International Christian University in Tokyo. Although not from among the nobility, Komuro is known as the 'prince of the sea' for ever becoming a star of beach tourism promotion advertising in Japan.

Their engagement announced by the Japanese Empire in November last year was greeted with the enthusiasm of the residents. Mako himself must abandon his noble status when married to Komuro who is an ordinary man.

Australian Men Recording Cambodia's Opposition Campaign Still Stressing in Prisoners

An Australian filmmaker who was arrested last year in Cambodia for allegedly endangering national security remained behind bars after the country's supreme court rejected his appeal for an outside prison on bail.

James Ricketson was arrested in Phnom Penh last June for installing cameras on a nephew aircraft to film a general rally opposition party campaign, the Cambodia Rescue Party. Ricketson, 68, faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted on charges.

Cambodian Supreme Court issued a statement Tuesday that it rejected Ricketson's plea because his case is still under investigation.

Alexandra Kennet, a Ricketson family lawyer, told reporters the family was "deeply disappointed" by the Supreme Court decision, delivered without Ricketson. A court official said that the vehicle that brought him to court to attend the hearing was late. Kennet said the Ricketson family was also concerned about his health, as he was held in a small cell with 140 other prisoners. [lt]
