MP Mohammed Bugais, who made the allegations to the Bahraini parliament yesterday, is calling for more awareness of ‘witchcraft’ which he argued is tearing families apart, reports the Gulf Daly News.
“I studied in school for 12 years and worked as a teacher for 15 years, but never came across any subject that addresses sorcery or witchcraft,” he claimed.
“This means the government is failing to raise awareness.
“There are families that have been broken apart because of those acts.
“There is one case of a Bahraini wife who went to someone because she wanted her husband to be obedient.
“He (the witch) told her to mix her period blood with his food, which eventually caused her husband paralysis. He has been in that state for the past seven years.”
Mr Bugais called on the authorities to round up alleged practitioners and witches, who he claims charge clients large amounts of money for their supernatural services.
“Most people committing those acts ask for 1,000 Bahraini Dinars (€1,927), but there are some known people who remain untouched,” he said.
However, Justice, Islamic Affairs and Endowment Minister Shaikh Khalid bin Ali Al Khalifa responded by saying authorities would investigate any such complaint.
He also claimed religious leaders should do more to tackle to problem, accusing them of getting too caught up in politics and neglecting their duty to the community.
“When people have low faith in religion they tend to turn to witchcraft and sorcery,” he said.
“It should be the role of clergymen to speak about the wrongs of following such superstitions.
“The problem is that clergymen are so busy with politics that they forget to raise awareness about these acts among others.
“But people can contact us and we will take legal action immediately against those committing such acts.”
A Valley couple has been charged with assault and disorderly conduct after arguing with McDonald’s employees and throwing food at them.
Michael and Nova Smith say they ordered a Number 2 and a Number 4 from the McDonald’s at Country Club Drive and Baseline Road in Mesa.
They say the meals should have come with hash browns, and when they realized they didn’t get the items, Nova went inside to confront managers.
“It’s a meal,” said Nova. “Just like you should get fries with your hamburger, we should have got our hash browns with our breakfast sandwiches.”
She says they refused to give her hash browns or her money back, and that’s when she threw her food in their direction.
“And that was out of frustration which I probably shouldn’t have done, but I did. Fighting over $2 of hash browns is ridiculous. It is ridiculous to have to fight that hard just to get customer service,” said Nova.
Michael says when managers wouldn’t hand back the food or give them a refund, he called 911, then walked behind the counter to confront the manager.
“I just was barely able to hold myself back,” said Michael. “And if not for the 911 call operator calling me back, I probably would have went berserk on him.”
Three people, including an employee, a customer and Michael, all called 911.
ABC15 spoke with McDonald’s managers who say this is a brand new store which just opened up about a month ago.
They admit their employees made a mistake, but say they were trying to fix the situation when a bag of food was thrown in their direction.
They say an employee was hit in the arm which is why the couple is being charged with assault.
Now you can play out the battle for Redwall right in front of you — with stuffed mice!
These black and white, custom taxidermy pieces, made by Etsy user TheCurious13, make up what might be the most creative chess set ever.
Rachael Garcia, 31, spoke to HuffPost Weird about her full set of real (dead) mice, adorned in armor and royal garb.
“I started to build a chess set once in high school out of clay, and told myself I was never going to learn how to play chess until I built a whole set,” Garcia said.
After picking up taxidermy, Garcia decided to make the weirdest chess set she could. She said it took her about 30 days, working two to three hours each day, to make her mouseketeers.
“The fabric used is mostly scrap fabric found around my house,” she said. “The shields that the knights used were from pieces of a bracelet.”
On her Etsy page, Garcia notes that the mice were taken from a captive breeding facility that distributes frozen rodents to feed reptile.
She assured people on her page that it is better for the mice to be “battling it out on the chess board” than to be in the belly of a snake.
“I used to be a zookeeper and worked with reptiles for seven years, so I knew a bunch of places that carried frozen mice.”
Her last chess set was sold on Monday for $450, but was her last for the time being. With her newfound attention, Garcia says she’s already started working on her next set.
Asked if she now plays chess since finally building a full set, Garcia says she’s getting there.
“[I play] a little bit. Occasionally, me and my daughter play.”
This might be the most publicity Radio Shack has had in years.
Police arrested 65-year-old John Posey last Wednesday after the man allegedly unzipped. When an officer arrived, Posey appeared to have “bloodshot eyes, was unsteady on his feet, and smelled of intoxicants,” according to a police report.
Posey first told police he was only shopping and denied urinating, despite the overwhelming smell, according to The Smoking Gun.
The man eventually confessed to urinating, telling the officer simply, “I had to pee bad.”
According to the International Business Times, Posey didn’t ask to use the bathroom because “stores usually won’t let you…so I didn’t ask.”
Along with a damaged carpet, a Radio Shack employee pointed out multiple electronics that were urinated on, estimating more than $750 worth of damage.
Posey was charged with public intoxication and criminal mischief.

The victim’s enraged mother, Land O’Lakes resident Tonya Thompson, heard that this sort of clownishness happens in other school districts.
Everybody panic, because those two facts are the basis of a new “trend” that’s dismantling our schools from the inside out: Butt slapping. That’s right, kids across the United States of America are slapping each other’s butts, and WTSP’s interview with Thompson proves it.
“I never heard of it until it happened to my daughter. I was very shocked,” Thompson said.
Officials in the Pasco County School system hadn’t heard of a butt slapping epidemic, even though it’s happening right behind their backsides. But not only had Thompson heard of it, WTSP reporters got to the bottom of the situation and interviewed the alleged offenders.
“We spoke to some students just a little while ago who said they witnessed it,” reporter Jennifer Titus states (video above). “They witnessed it taking place as far back as two years ago. They said it normally happens on Fridays.”
OK, none of these facts actually prove a nationwide trend in butt slapping. Not even YouTube searches — usually a hot bed for the ridiculous trends kids get into — revealed any meaningful evidence that “butt slapping” is anything more than one isolated incident of, well, butt slapping.
Sexual harassment is never funny. But there’s not enough evidence to show that butt slapping is something parents should be worried about. YET.
The Ostersund District Court dropped the charges against the 27-year-old man, who had been arrested on narcotics allegations when he was pulled over on his way home from a dinner party and submitted to a blood test requested by police who suspected him of drug use, TheLocal.se reported Friday.
The man told the court the traces of tetrahydrocannabinol, the active chemical in marijuana, found in his blood were a result of eating a slice of cake he did not know had been spiked with the drug.
The court agreed the man seemed to have ingested the substance accidentally at the dinner party and the charges were dismissed.
PRESCOTT, Ariz. — A Prescott man was arrested after he allegedly sold his vehicle on Craigslist and reported it stolen in a scheme to collect insurance money.
Dickinson reported that unknown suspects forced entry into his home and took his 2009 Sinister sandrail from the garage, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
A new 2009 Sinister sandrail has a value of more than $50,000.
The deputy who took the report suspected Dickinson might have filed a false report as part of an insurance fraud scheme and contacted detectives at the Sheriff’s Office.
A detective with the agency’s criminal investigations bureau found the report suspicious for several reasons, including a lack of physical evidence.
The detective obtained a copy of an insurance claim filed by Dickinson, confirming the man received a $53,000 check for the sandrail after it was reported stolen.
The detective also discovered that the owner of Sinister Sand Sports, a custom sandrail manufacturing company, was contacted by a California man regarding a 2009 Sinister sandrail he purchased through Craigslist.
The vehicle identification number plate was reportedly removed from the vehicle, but descriptions of manufacturing details provided by the California man indicated it was the same sandrail reported stolen by Dickinson in August, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Special agents from the National Insurance Crime Bureau visited the California man’s home in mid-November to examine the vehicle. The agents confirmed the vehicle matched the one in Dickinson’s report and impounded it.
The California man told investigators he saw the sandrail advertised on Craigslist in early October. He and Dickinson reportedly negotiated a price of $35,000, and he took possession of the sandrail Oct. 30.
The man also told investigators he was suspicious about the sale because Dickinson allegedly refused to provide ownership paperwork.
When he picked up the sandrail, he photographed Dickinson’s license plate and contacted Sinister Sand Sports. The owner of the company told him the vehicle was reported stolen in Arizona.
The man told the Sheriff’s Office that he confronted Dickinson about the burglary report. Dickinson allegedly claimed the report was not related to the vehicle advertised on Craigslist, and offered the man his boat in hopes of working things out.
On Nov. 25, Dickinson allegedly dropped the boat off at an Arizona home, where the California man’s mother lives, and signed over the title.
Yavapai County Sheriff’s detectives served a search warrant at Dickinson’s home on the 7500 block of Traders Trail in Prescott Valley, where they found a Certificate of Origin for the sandrail. They also recovered tools and other items that were reported stolen.
The search also revealed two rifles, which Dickinson was not legally allowed to own because he has been on active probation, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Dickinson is being held without bond on charges including fraudulent schemes, trafficking in stolen property, theft, and prohibited possession of a firearm.
