Courts free more suspects in case of disappeared students
Courts have freed another 24 people implicated in one of the country's most notorious crimes, the disappearance of 43 students, a federal official said Sunday. Deputy Interior Secretary Alejandro Encinas told a news conference that the detainees were freed the previous evening after courts found various violations of due process in their cases, including torture and arbitrary detention. Authorities say leftist students from the Ayotzinapa teacher's school were abducted by police in the Guerrero state town of Iguala in September 2014 and handed over to the drug gang Guerreros Unidos headed by Gildardo López Astudillo, who was freed earlier this month.

Mexico amnesty law eyes reprieve for minor drug offenses, abortions
Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has sent a draft law to Congress that aims to grant amnesty to people serving jail time for lesser offenses, including abortion and possession of small amounts of drugs, the government said on Sunday. "The amnesty would benefit those in prison for minor crimes, not murderers or kidnappers or those who have caused serious injury to another person," Lopez Obrador wrote in a preamble to the draft initiative. Lopez Obrador put an amnesty at the center of his strategy to bring down record levels of violence in Mexico, which has been ravaged by turf wars between drug gangs for more than a decade, resulting in tens of thousands of deaths.

County lines epidemic blamed as number of children missing or linked to drugs gangs doubles
County lines drug networks have been blamed for a huge spike in the number of children identified as having links to gangs, after the figure more than doubled in three years. Social services in England carried out 8,650 assessments of young people whom they labelled as vulnerable with gangs highlighted as an issue in 2017-18.  It marked a significant jump on 2014-15, when 3,680 such cases were recorded. A similar trend was found in the number of children who went missing during the same period - from 8,850 to 16,070 - which is considered a trait of county lines networks. Drugs gangs increasingly recruit vulnerable children to ferry narcotics from cities to smaller towns, with around 2,000 operations believed to be operating across the UK. County lines feature The smuggling networks are known as "county lines". Academics and MPs described the figures, analysed by The Guardian, as "shocking". "There will be elements of that about increased reporting and awareness but that is not going to account for such a big rise - there is something happening," Simon Harding, an associate professor of criminology at the University of West London, told the newspaper.  "Working in county lines has a great allure for young people. It gives them a tax-free income, gives them a regular income and high income".  The Department for Education data showed a steady rise in the number of vulnerable children who go missing or become involved with gangs over the past few years.

Police fired chemical-laced blue water and tear gas at protesters who lobbed Molotov cocktails outside the Hong Kong government office complex Sunday, as violence flared anew after thousands of pro-democracy supporters marched through downtown in defiance of a police ban. A mixed crowd of hardcore protesters in black and wearing masks, along with families with children, spilled into the roads of the Causeway Bay shopping belt and marched for over 2 kilometers (1.2 miles) to the central business district. Some waved U.S. and British flags, while others carried posters reiterating their calls for democratic reforms.

‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark' Teases Four Terrifying Creatures; Here's Everything We Know So Far
If you're a child of the ‘80s or ‘90s, you're familiar with Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. The series of children's books, written by Alvin Schwartz and initially illustrated by Stephen Gammell, were staples of every boy and girl's book shelf and provided so many of them with so many nightmares. Now there's a movie adaptation of some of the bone-chilling tales found in the pages of that iconic collection.  Our first look at the movie came in the form of four brief teasers aired during Super Bowl LIII, and they definitely look terrifying — especially for the younger audience these books were written for. Is the movie version still aiming for that same crowd? Maybe on the older end of the originally intended age range. Check...
