What we today call Tunisia was conquered by the Arabs in 647 CE. Although the Arabs initially unified North Africa, by 1230 a separate Tunisian dynasty had been established by the Ḥafṣids. They were Amazigh (Berber). Ḥafṣid rule saw the development of the Maliki school of law in the region. One of the four major schools of law in Sunni Islam, it stresses local community practices and relying on tradition and analogical reasoning over the relatively newer hadiths, or sayings of the prophet. Under the Hafsids, the belief of Maliki as the basis of social life took hold in Tunisian society. It is still the major school of thought in Northern Africa. The Hafsids’ other major legacy is making Tunis the capital of their domain.

11yo Illinois Boy Arrested for Playing With Toy Gun

An 11-year-old African-American boy in Illinois was arrested by police while playing with a toy gun in the street with his friends. Police said they made the arrest after receiving a call from a driver, who complained the toy gun had been pointed at him. 

I was fake shooting with my brother and others,” Fulton said. “I never did threaten anybody, not at all.”

Right, we all know that playing with toys is now a crime.
Do you remember that calm time when we were kids and we used to do it all the time and we were in safety and no one ever looked twice?! Don’t play that shit about the neighborhood or the parents, that’s incredibly weak. The only people at fault here are the police for being so fucking incompetent.

A top Egyptian prosecutor, Hisham Barakat, was assassinated yesterday by a car bomb in Cairo. Barakat is the most senior government official to be assassinated since the coup that overthrew President Morsi in 2013. The assassination is a blow to President Sisi, who rose to power on the promise of restoring stability and order. Democracy Now! correspondent Sharif Abdel Kouddous reports that the attack marks a shift by militant groups from targeting the police and army to the judiciary. “Since the revolution, the judiciary has gone from being a curb on the regime’s most authoritarian impulses to being a willing partner in repression,” Abdel Kouddous explained.
