A Teen Just Lost His Driver's License 49 Minutes After Passing The Drivers Test

Less than an hour after he passed his driving test, an 18-year-old in Germany was pulled over by police and banned from driving. According to police in Markischer Kreis, he picked up four of his friends and went on a drive. 

A police officer reportedly recorder his speed to be at 59 mph when the speed limit was only 31 mph. The teen was the fastest person of the day, police said. 

According to BuzzFeed News, the teen received a $227 fine and was banned from driving for up to four weeks. He only had his license for 49 minutes. Police said that the teen could get his license back once he complete more training.  

Donald Trump Wasn’t Happy About Chief Justice John Roberts Immigration Rulings

President Trump couldn’t hold back his anger at Chief Justice John Roberts on Wednesday, after the court shot down one of his administration's policies. The president claimed the court to be biased and that an “Obama Judge” made the final decision, according to the Huffington Post.

“Sorry Chief Justice John Roberts, but you do indeed have ‘Obama judges,’ and they have a much different point of view than the people who are charged with the safety of our country,” Trump tweeted. “We need protection and security—these rulings are making our country unsafe! Very dangerous and unwise!”

The “Obama judge” comment happened after the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals stopped the administrations ban on certain refugees seeking asylum on Monday. 

Roberts told the Associated Press in his first public rebuke of the president that: “We do not have Obama judges or trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges. What we have is an extraordinary group of dedicated judges doing their level best to do equal right to those appearing before them. That independent judiciary is something we should all be thankful for.” 

This is not the first time that the 9th District has stopped some of Trump’s immigration policies. Prior to the ruling on Monday, the court blocked all three versions of the travel ban, plans to defund sanctuary cities, and the end to the DACA program.

Survivors of the Parkland School Shooting Just Won An International Peace Prize For Their Gun Control Movement

The survivors of the Parkland school shooting have become major leaders in the national movement to fight gun violence. Their work was awarded the International Children’s Peace Prize on Tuesday in Cape Town, South Africa. 

“The peaceful campaign to demand safe schools and communities, and the eradication of gun violence, is reminiscent of other great peace movements in history,” said Archbishop Desmond Tutu about the March For Our Lives movement, according to USA Today. “I am in awe of these children, whose powerful message is amplified by their youthful energy and an unshakable belief that children can — no, must — improve their own futures.” 

Emma Gonzalez, David Hogg, Ryan Deitsch, and Jaclyn Corin were all together in South Africa. Gonzalez said that the award “serves as a major reminder that the universe is on the side of justice and that we will win because our cause is one of peace.” 

Marc Dullaert, the founder of KidsRights and the International Children’s Peace Prize, thought the Parkland student’s created a “global youth-led and peaceful protest-movement” and “utilized the skills and knowledge of young people to generate positive change.”

Previous recipients of the award include Pakistani education activist Malala Yousafzai.
