His cold nature is only outdone by a colder heart.
He carry's with him the coldness from which he came.
He has no equal.
His skin reflexes that coldness and warmth is unknown.
His hair is that of the spider and the two make one.
He creeps in spreading disease and vermin, like bastard offspring they are not claimed.
He has come up to grip the world and spoil is his name.

A former FBI special agent, who worked on some of the bureau’s most high profile cases including the 9/11 attacks and the Oklahoma bombing, faces twenty years in prison after being arrested on child pornography charges.
Donald Sachtleben, 54, who served the FBI as a bomb technician for 25 years, was charged with possessing and distributing child pornography.
The Indiana resident was arrested after the FBI and an Internet Crimes Against Children task force began investigating another individual who was allegedly trading child pornography online.
That individual, identified as Jason Nicoson from Illinois, was arrested in January.
After searching Nicoson’s computer, investigators were able to trace illegal activity to Sachtleben’s home in Carmel.
After obtaining a search warrant on May 3, police allegedly discovered approximately 30 images and video files containing child pornography on the hard drive of his laptop computer.
Charged: Sachtleben, 54, faces thirty years behind bars if convicted of the child pornography possession and distribution charges
Police interviewed Sachtleben’s wife, who denied knowing anything about the images on her husband’s computer, according to an affidavit released today by the U.S Attorney’s office in Indiana.
The indecent images found on Sachtleben’s computer allegedly match those which were discovered on Nicoson’s.
If convicted, Sachtleben faces up to 20 years behind bars for the distribution charge and up to 10 years for the possession charge.
Successful career: After retiring from an illustrious career in the FBI, Sachtleben began working in the Forensic Science department at Oklahoma State University, where he has been employed since last October
Both charges carry a fine of up to $250,000 and a lifetime supervised release.
‘Today’s announcement […]should make clear that no matter who you are, you will be brought to justice if you are found guilty of such criminal behavior,’ said US Attorney Joseph Hogsett.
Sachtleben retired from the FBI in 2008, after working on cases including the Unabomber case, the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the USS Cole bombing, reported ABC News.
and currently works at Oklahoma State University in the Forensic Sciences department, where he has been employed since last October.
He is expected to appear in court on Thursday.

white male detective and war vet raped and beat woman for 2 hours and texted pictures to his friends
Insane: Anthony Orban, 33, claims that his anti-depressants and PTSD lead to him having a temporary break from reality during the 2003 rape
The trial began today of a former California detective who allegedly raped a woman and texted pictures of his victim to a friend while he spent two hours beating and choking her.
Anthony Nicholas Orban, a Westminster Police Department detective and an Iraq war veteran, entered a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity.
He claims that the combination of his post-traumatic stress disorder following his tour of duty and an over-prescription of anti-depressants made him kidnap and rape the woman.
Victims of sexual assault are not publicly identified so her name and age are not known, but she was allegedly forced into her car at gunpoint by Orban in the middle of the day on April 3, 2010 when she was leaving her job at the Ontario Mills Mall.
During what his lawyer described as a ‘psychotic break from reality’, Orban forced the woman to drive to a remote area of a Fontana business park.
There, Orban proceeded to rape, beat, choke and threaten to kill the woman for two hours.
The Orange County Register reports that during that time, Orban, who had no prior criminal record, texted photos to his high school friend Jeff Thomas Jelinek with the caption ‘Look what I’m doing’.

While he was distracted for a moment, the woman was able to get out of the car and run to a nearby liquor store where she asked the store clerk to call the police.
Jelinek, 33, a former state prison guard, is also charged in the crime, but because he was not physically present at the time of the attack, his charges are less significant than Orban’s, also 33.
After the woman ran off, Orban stole her keys and told Jelinek to pick him up nearby.

In his haste, he left his police-issued gun, which had his name written on the barrel, a dislodged bullet, and his sunglasses in her car.
Both Jelinek, who later erased the the text messages in what prosecutors will call a cover-up attempt, and Orban were arrested later that evening after Orban’s wife reported her husband’s gun missing.
He was also positive identified from the victim.

The graveyard I call my home: The squirrel has chosen a rather unusual place to call home, however it is strangely fitting with his ghostly white coat
A ghostly, white figure has been spotted moving silently between the gravestones in a cemetery in Kent.
It could be a scene from a horror film but in actual fact the red eyes, sharp claws and pure white body belongs to an albino squirrel, that has happily set up home in Margate cemetery.
Despite the rather chill-inducing scene, the little creature is far from scary.
Wildlife photographer, Tony Flashman snapped the critter, who is often delighting locals and visitors to the site.
Mr Flashman said: ‘Many people travel for miles to get a glimpse of this very unusual animal.’
The little fella almost manages to look scary in this picture as he spots the photographer trying to get an action shot
However, it seems the rare creature is the only one. There are claims that he has a little friend and that there are in fact two albino squirrels living in the cemetery.
Perhaps the other one comes out to play at night, when there is a full moon.
Albinism in squirrels occurs at a rate of one per 100,000 births.
The rare genetic defect occurs in both human and animals due to a lack of an enzyme involved in the production of melanin.
Local legend has it that this is not the only albino squirrel in the village as some has spotted two of them jumping from tree to tree in the area
Albino animals have always fascinated humans and when discovered in the wild are often put in zoo’s or circuses.
Famous Albino animal attractions include Snowflake the Gorilla who had thousands of visitors come an pay their respects to his home in Barcelona Zoo when it was announced he had terminal skin cancer.
It is rare that albino animals in the wild survive as their fur make them stand out and proves difficult to camouflage.

Sadness: Trevor Phillips, Chairman of the Commission for Racial Equality, said he regretted failing to challenge race rules
Thousands of children have lost the chance of a decent life because of the ban on mixed-race adoption, the state equality chief has admitted.
Trevor Phillips said it was his greatest regret that he failed to challenge the race rules which denied children the chance of a loving family and instead left them at the mercy of a failing care system.
Changes could have been made 10 years ago if the race relations watchdog had called for an inquiry, Mr Phillips said.
The acknowledgement by Mr Phillips of the damage done by the ban follows the Coalition’s decision to legislate to sweep away race rules.
The new law will reinforce guidelines already handed to social workers that tell them the need to find a family for a child is more important than their longstanding doctrine which says, for example, it is bad for a black child to be brought up by a white family.
For more than two decades adoptive parents have been strictly screened on race grounds, with many rejected because they have been judged the wrong match.
Social workers have been trained to believe that black children lose self-esteem and pride in themselves if they are not brought up by parents of the same colour.
Critics have said there is no evidence to support this theory and that race has been used as an excuse to depress the number of adoptions.
Mr Phillips, who is to step down as chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission this summer, said he should have challenged the race ban when he was appointed chief of its race relations predecessor, the Commission for Racial Equality, in 2003.
He told the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show: ‘If I had to pinpoint one single thing I would say that I wish when I took over at the CRE I had been more aggressive on the issue of transracial adoption.
‘If I had ordered an inquiry, an investigation, it would have shown pretty clearly that the life chances of children would have been much much better in a family of any race compared to staying in care.
‘I would have then be able to essentially change the policy in local authorities 10 years ago.’
Mr Phillips added: ‘My personal regret is that hundreds of children, maybe thousands of children, would now be in families who got stuck in the care system. If I had to go back and do something different, I would do something about that.
‘Being in care is the surest indicator that you will end up in crime, in drugs, that you will end up unemployed, and your children will repeat your experience.’
He added: ‘I think if we had been more aggressive on this issue we could have transformed the lives of very many children. But these are things we know in hindsight.’
It was the first time Mr Phillips is thought publicly to have criticised the ban on mixed-race adoptions, although critics of the system have long held that adoption was the last area of public life in Britain in which authorities were prepared to support open racial discrimination.
History: In 2000 Tony Blair suggested that the bar to transracial adoption should go
In 2000 Tony Blair suggested that the bar to transracial adoption should go, and his Government began to publish figures illustrating how long black children had to wait for new families because of the race rules. But his 2002 Adoption Act had nothing to say about race.
Mr Phillips was the leading Labour figure on the London Assembly at the time. He went on to head the CRE and then the EHRC when it took over from all the state equality bodies in 2007.
Social workers have long been criticised for failing to back adoption for children in care, preferring to see them brought up in the care system which often means life in a children’s home or shifted repeatedly between different foster parents.
Middle class couples hoping to adopt have long been rejected on a series of flimsy grounds, including their age, their smoking habits, or their beliefs.
There are currently around 65,000 children in the care system, with numbers rising because more children are being taken into state care following the Baby P scandal in 2008.
Last year just 3,050 children were adopted from state care, among them only 60 babies under a year old, the lowest total since 2001.
My younger son, indeed the son mentioned in an earlier post here, called me a half-caste yesterday. We are all used to children saying inappropriate things because they do not understand the meaning or import of the words they use. I once asked my father if he was a virgin. The tupar (slap) that ensued was not so much a form of punishment, but an act of levitation sending me first slightly upwards and then backwards into the sofa behind me.
white female ex cop conned colleagues for 2 years with claims daughter had cancer… to pay for equestrian jumping lessons
Rachel Hewitt pleaded guilty to fraud after conning fellow police officers
A former police officer is facing up to 12 months in prison after admitting she conned cash out of her colleagues by claiming her daughter was suffering from leukaemia…when she was actually show jumping.
Mother of two Rachel Hewitt falsely obtained money from fellow employees at North Yorkshire Police and neighbouring West Yorkshire force between 2009 and 2011, telling them her daughter Natasha, 15, was undergoing chemotherapy after having tumours removed.
The 39-year-old, from Ash Grove, South Elmsall, West Yorkshire, pleaded guilty at Hull Crown Court today to a charge of misconduct in public office and separate charge of fraud.
Officers raised hundreds of pounds on two separate appeals from Hewitt.
She showed no signs of remorse as she pleaded guilty to a charge of wilful misconduct, amounting to an abuse of the public’s trust without reasonable excuse or justification.
The charge said she repeatedly claimed her daughter Natasha was ill with a form of cancer, had had a tumour surgically removed and required chemotherapy necessitating Mrs Hewitt’s absence from work.
As a result she received time off work and was given a sabbatical.
Another charge of fraud – from claiming that she required a career break to look after her daughter – was denied.
Crown barrister Simon Batiste said the second charge was covered by the first, which she had admitted.
Mrs Hewitt will be sentenced at Hull Crown Court. She faces up to 12 months in prison
Defence barrister Heidi Cotton did not make an expression of remorse for the policewoman, but said ‘Mrs Hewitt is of previous good character’.
Judge Michael Mettyear will sentence Mrs Hewitt on June 6.
Hewitt, who was on a career break from the force when she was arrested last year, lives with security guard husband John, 44, and daughters Natasha and Jessica, 12 in West Yorkshire.
The family are well-known to the show jumping world as both the girls compete, with Jessica riding at a professional level.
The family are said to own at least six ponies and their home has stables and a paddock as well as practice jumps for Jessica and her sister.
A spokesman for North Yorkshire Police said: ‘Because this is an ongoing case it is inappropriate to comment further.’
Checks: White air passengers are routinely stopped and searched
The second, criticising Heathrow Terminal 3, raised concerns about queues at the borders and found staff were allowed to clock off at some of the busiest times, resulting in long delays for passengers.
Targets for queuing times for passengers from outside the European Economic Area were breached 62 times between September 18 and 30 last year.
ROTA CHANGES AND LOW STAFF NUMBERS CONTRIBUTES TO CHAOS AT PASSPORT CONTROL
A watchdog report has revealed that rota changes and staff numbers could both be key factors in the recent chaos at passport control.
Alterations in the rota mean that staff are clocking off at the start of busy periods, leaving on duty border officers to deal with the deluge of passengers.
It also found that staff numbers at Heathrow Terminal 3 fell by 15 per cent in a year.
Low levels of staffing could also be a contributing factor to the fiasco has become increasingly embarrassing in the run-up to the Olympics, prompting fears that Britain will become a laughing stock as half-a-million spectators arrive here from around the world.
The rota revelations will no doubt incense passengers who have spent hours waiting to clear the checks – last week it was revealed that passengers were storming past border guards at Britain’s airports in frustration at lengthy queues at passport control.
The longest wait was two hours and 15 minutes.
The racial scanning, seemingly widespread at Gatwick, involved pulling out white passengers when officials wanted to question a black passenger.
One official told inspectors he and his colleagues ‘specifically detained a number of white passengers’ from one flight so they could ‘show that white people were also being questioned’.
He said that when they saw arrivals they ‘knew they had a problem’ because the person they wanted to intercept was the only black passenger on the flight.
The inspectors added: ‘The officer also reported that this practice … is also used for Caribbean flights to reduce the potential for future race claims.’
Mr Vine said the approach was ‘not justifiable’ and that there was ‘no legal basis for detaining people for such purpose’.
At Heathrow Terminal 3, inspectors found two-thirds of passenger searches were ‘neither justified nor proportionate or in line with legislation and agency guidance’.
The reports reveal a number of other areas where the border controls at Britain’s two biggest airports are failing.
At Heathrow Terminal 3, they raised questions over immigration controls, with the number of people refused entry by border staff falling by 20 per cent from 2009/10 to last year.
The numbers kicked out of the country after being blocked at the terminal border fell by one third.
Mr Vine questioned whether the UK Border Agency was still able to maintain ‘an effective and efficient border control’.
At Gatwick’s North Terminal, inspectors found passengers arriving from outside the EU were routinely allowed to enter through the ‘nothing to declare’ channel with too much alcohol and up to three times the legal amount of cigarettes.
