Mohammed Arfan, 29, was jailed after thousands of pairs of fake Nike trainers and Rockport shoes were discovered at a Salford warehouse he was renting. Police arrested him during an investigation into drugs and the father of four took police to the unit on Broughton Lane when he was arrested last January. The court heard that Arfan had showed police the unit after denying involvement in a drugs racket. Inside were 222 cartons of Nikes and 43 of Rockports. A records book found at the warehouse showed the scale of the operation, which had netted thousands of pounds. Sentencing him to 12 months and six months, to run consecutively, Judge Lesley Newton said: "This was quite a large scale operation. I do not know how many others were involved in the enterprise because you were not honest with the jury, but in your account to the police you said the warehouse belonged to you. It seems that for some months prior to your arrest you were leading what I can only describe as the high life, and I think that was financed by your criminal activities. "Such offences affect the manufacturers and the large and small retailers who cannot compete." The footwear has been seized by trading standards and will be recycled once the logos are removed. If the tags will not come off they could be sent to Third World countries. Salford Trading Standards welcomed the sentence. Jonathan Hall said: "This sends out a message that counterfeiters will not be tolerated. This defendant was making a lot of money from these items. Drinking booze, and spitting, the pair, aged about 16, pulled two replica guns from carrier bags. In broad daylight they brazenly pointed and cocked the guns as they swigged what looks like vodka from plastic cups.

Rick Perry's political career He may face fierce opposition from secular groups and progressives who argue that his religious rhetoric violates the separation of church and state and that his belief that some groups, such as the Boy Scouts of America, should be allowed to discriminate against gays is bigoted. Huntsman, a former governor of Utah, made his bid official on June 21 at at Liberty State Park in New Jersey. He vowed to provide "leadership that knows we need more than hope" and "leadership that doesn't promise Washington has all the solutions to our problems."

Bachmann tells The Associated Press she decided to jump into the 2012 race at this time because she believed it was "the right thing to do."

Air Jordan 9 Calvin Bailey program of targeted drone missile strikes in Pakistan were largely hidden from the rest of the world for many years. The strikes have been conducted in Pakistan's rugged and remote tribal region bordering Afghanistan an area nearly impossible for outsiders to visit and from which it is incredibly difficult to extract reliable and timely information. is on the rise. He said his mission is to seek justice on behalf of innocent civilians killed in the drone attacks. government says, that they're only targeting militants," said Akbar. "The situation on the ground is that a huge number of civilians are being killed." Part of the problem, according to Akbar, is that until recently, most Pakistanis didn't know or didn't care about the drone strikes. But public political anger, denouncing the strikes as a violation of Pakistan's sovereignty, has helped draw attention to the issue over the last few years. drone campaign. The Pew Research Center study found that more than half of those polled in 17 of 20 countries disapprove of the use of drone strikes to target extremists. However, Americans see things very differently and largely support their use, with only 38 percent disapproving. Though public perception may help him to gain traction, Akbar said his cases are based on the evidence he's gathering from strike locations in coordination with communities in North Waziristan, the tribal agency in which the overwhelming majority of strikes have occurred. That cache of evidence includes everything from family testimonies and images of the identifiable bodies and body parts recovered from the attack sites, to actual fragments of the Hellfire missiles fired from the remotely piloted drones. "I believe in very simple principles that were taught to us by the West," said Akbar. "That everyone is presumed innocent unless proven guilty. So anyone who is killed in drone strikes, unless and until his guilt is established in some independent forum that person is innocent." Noor Behram, a journalist in North Waziristan, Pakistan, describes his views of the United States. drones strikes inside Pakistan since 2004. The fact that the report is based on wide ranging and conflicting reports, speaks to the difficulty of establishing hard facts in this part of the world. Similarly, the same report also estimated that the number of civilians killed in those strikes ranges from 482 to 832. A major point of controversy is who counts as a versus a The Obama administration defines all military age males in a strike zone as unless there is explicit posthumous evidence proving them innocent, according to a report in the New York Times. Pakistanis who live in those strike zones dispute that definition, and claim innocent women and children are being killed as well. But the administration broad definition does help explain how they could reach a very low, civilian casualty count as a result of drone attacks. "The problem is that no one cares if is killed, and by I mean a person who is nobody. A person who is probably just living in that area, has no money, no education, no representation," said Akbar. "The point here is that if we are successful in killing one or two people who we really want to kill, and in order to do that we kill 40 people who cares? And this is a sad kind of attitude we have from the American government and unfortunately from my own government." help but be angry In order to represent the families of civilian drone strikes victims in court, Akbar first had to win their trust, which has been an uphill battle in communities that see themselves are separate and distinct from the rest of country. Many in the targeted areas are under represented and under funded on the national level, and feel more kinship to their fellow ethnic tribesmen across the border in Afghanistan than with the Pakistani population east of their northwest territory. "When we started working in Waziristan in 2010, that was the seventh year of the drone strikes," said Akbar. "People had no trust in their own countrymen. "When you live in an area where there is war, where there is suffering, where there are drone attacks, where there's not proper reporting about what's going on Even if you're a professional, you can't help but become angry at what you see, said Behram. start to wonder how you can take the voices you hear and carry them to the rest of the world." Behram established a notification system based on walkie talkies and a trusted network of sources across the region where curfews and rough terrain can make it difficult to travel quickly from one area to another. When the attacks occur nearby, as many do to his home in Miramshah, he says he is often the first one with a camera at the site. Entire buildings are reduced to rubble heaps. Residual fires burn in nearby homes or businesses. Crowds gather to dig through the wreckage for survivors and gather body parts. The frequency with which the strikes are carried out, Behram said, has his community on edge. "People are very worried, very tense all the time," he said. "When the missile is fired from the plane, there is a loud explosion. When it hits the ground, it makes a terrifying noise. The people below, they just start running. Pieces of missile, they fly everywhere, very far, into other people's houses." Despite experiencing strikes so close to his home that he and his family have been forced to flee in the middle of the night, Behram said he harbors no anger towards the American people it's their policies, he says, that should be reviewed.
