Filipinos: Stop wasting taxpayer money on this constant and ridiculous ‘cover your head with a notebook’ silly-ass #MMShakeDrill #scam and inspire your citizenry to use their cojones polished by our world-class universities instead of screaming “corruption” at the top of your lungs and blatantly allowing these “development authority” goons get away with our future.
The last time Italian journalist Emiliano Fittipaldi wrote an exposé about corruption at the heart of the Roman Catholic Church, it landed him in a Vatican court facing a possible jail sentence on charges that he had illegally obtained confidential church papers in the course of his reporting.
Now, six months after the 42-year-old reporter was cleared of all charges, Fittipaldi is taking on the church again. This time in a new book that accuses Pope Francis of doing “close to nothing” to stop clerical sexual abuse in Italy and around the world, despite the Argentinean pope’s frequent assertions that he has zero tolerance for the abuse of children or those who protect abusers.
A native of Cork, Ireland, Mr. O’Cochlain claimed he had Old Holborn cigarettes in his possession, which are hand-rolled tobacco unfamiliar to airport security men. He was searched three times, and eventually brought to the police station for further questioning.
The detained nurse’s theory is that at the station, his cigarettes were replaced with real marijuana joints, that led to the drug charge.
Mr. O’Cochlain insists that the banned drug was planted on him by corrupt officials, who he claims have been asking for ‘corrupt money’ in exchange for dropping the charges.
“I was told if I don’t pay up I will be found guilty. They were threatening to give me 25 years if I did not pay them around €7,000 to 10,000 ,” he was quoted as saying, according to The Independent.
