These TMNTs would probably get into troubles with the police here in France, as carrying nunchucks, bats, battons (...) down the streets is prohibited.
Vive la France?

A man accused of murdering a self-professed vampire has appeared in a Melbourne court following his extradition from Perth.
(snip)
He is charged with murdering Shane Chartres-Abbott, who was gunned down by two men in front of his father and girlfriend as he left his Melbourne home in 2003.

silver bullets (no, that's werewolves)

Quote

Mr Chartres-Abbott, 28, who was working as a male gigolo, was on trial for raping a female client a the time of his murder.

she pays a guy to have sex with her then accuses him of rape when he does ?

Cardinal George Pell likens church to truck company



AUSTRALIA
Sydney Morning Herald

August 21, 2014

Cardinal George Pell has strongly defended Melbourne Response as Australia's first comprehensive redress scheme for victims of clerical sexual abuse.

Appearing at the royal commission via video link from the Vatican in Rome on Thursday night, Cardinal Pell likened the Catholic Church's responsibility for child abuse to that of a "trucking company".

If a driver sexually assaulted a passenger they picked up along the way, "I don't think it appropriate for the ownership leadership of that company be held responsible."

Cardinal Pell, who established the Melbourne Response when he was Archbishop of the Melbourne Archdiocese in 1996, denied suggestions that any of its three arms - the Independent Commissioner, compensation panel and counselling arm Carelink - had stopped operating independently of the other.

if it's the confessional, presumably it would be parishioners confessing abuse to priests, rather than pederast priests confessing to parishioners

Hard as it may be to believe, priests do not have a total monopoly on child abuse.

It's better documented.

sexual abuse of children is both a crime and a sin
The way confessionals work is parishioners confess sins to priests, not vice versa
