Man wears blackface in court then launches bizarre rant about being ‘treated like a black man’

Man wears blackface in court then launches bizarre rant about being ‘treated like a black man’A man who was recently convicted in a violent road rage incident turned up to court with a blacked up face for his sentencing hearing before delivering a bizarre racially-charged rant.Mark Char, who is not black, claimed he was wearing blackface because he was being “treated like a black man” by the court in Honolulu, Hawaii. He was found guilty of attempted murder and assault in March over a triple stabbing in a road rage confrontation.One victim was knifed five times and taken to hospital in a critical condition after the attack, which Char claimed was in self-defence.At his sentencing hearing, Char hit out at his lawyer, who he said was “incompetent”. He said: “Now this kangaroo court is trying to give me a life sentence for me trying to protect and defend myself against the attack from three guys ― in essence, treating me like a black man.“And today, the reason why I’m like this is because I prepared myself to play my part in your kangaroo court, treating me like a black man, so today I’m going to be a black man.”Char is thought to have used a black-coloured permanent marker to darken his face, according to local media.Despite his unusual behaviour, state documents showed the court was satisfied that he had understood the proceedings of the trial and was fit to be sentenced.His appearance drew strong criticism from Judge Todd Eddins, who later sentenced him to life in prison with the possibility of parole.“This continues a pattern of disruptive behaviour designed to undermine the administration of justice,” he said.He added: “What you need to do is look in the mirror. And if you look in the mirror, Mr Char, you’re not going to see a black person, you’re going to see a menace to society.”

Rosenstein: Criticism of Barr’s Handling of Mueller Report ‘Bizarre’

Rosenstein: Criticism of Barr’s Handling of Mueller Report ‘Bizarre’Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein pushed back Thursday against allegations that Attorney General William Barr had been biased in his handling of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's final report, calling such accusations "bizarre."“He’s being as forthcoming as he can,” Rosenstein told the Wall Street Journal. “And so this notion that he’s trying to mislead people, I think is just completely bizarre.”Barr, a Trump appointee, submitted a four-page summary of the nearly 400-page report to the House and Senate Judiciary Committees last month, in which he stated that Mueller had found no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia but had left open the question of whether the president obstructed justice during the probe. (Rosenstein and Barr subsequently declined to file obstruction charges against Trump, saying nothing none of the president's actions had “corrupt intent.”)On Thursday, Rosenstein defended Barr's handling of the Mueller report from critics who have charged him with bias.“It would be one thing if you put out a letter and said, ‘I’m not going to give you the report,’” Rosenstein said. “What he said is, ‘Look, it’s going to take a while to process the report. In the meantime, people really want to know what’s in it. I’m going to give you the top-line conclusions.’ That’s all he was trying to do.”Barr said in congressional testimony Wednesday that he the believes the DOJ "spied" on the Trump campaign and he plans to open a DOJ investigation into the origins of the Russia probe. He also described the four types of redactions that the DOJ will make before releasing a version of the report to lawmakers: grand-jury information, information that would reveal intelligence sources and methods, information that affects the privacy of “peripheral players” not charged as a result of the investigation, and information that would compromise ongoing prosecutions.Rosenstein appointed Mueller as special counsel for the Russia probe in May 2017, after Trump fired former FBI director James Comey, who had directed the investigation to that point. The investigation fell to Rosenstein after then-attorney general Jeff Sessions recused himself from the probe.

Harvard Scientists Say Aliens May Explain Bizarre Interstellar Object 'Oumuamua (But Probably Not)

Harvard Scientists Say Aliens May Explain Bizarre Interstellar Object 'Oumuamua (But Probably Not)Oddball space rock ‘Oumuamua, discovered over a year ago, is the first interstellar object to visit our solar system and is unlike any comet or asteroid observed before. Two astronomers with the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) recently took a closer look at the cigar-shaped object’s unusual acceleration during its trip through our solar system, to figure out what may have caused the unexpected boost in the object’s motion. Such acceleration during orbit is characteristic of comets, because their icy bodies evaporate, expelling water vapor that propels the objects.
