(CNN) -- Former boxing champion Mike Tyson has been the baddest man on the planet, served time behind bars, did a cameo in a blockbuster comedy, and even starred in his own one-man show on Broadway.

The former BBC DJ (pictured) was interviewed under caution at Stoke Mandeville Hospital after a woman claimed she had been abused as a girl at Duncroft Approved School for Girls in Staines in the 1970s.
The 5% of those of us who are actually doing something to stop injustice in the UK and entire world, would greatly appreciate it, if those who dont want to face reality and get off their asses to assist us, would stand aside and allow us, and stop trying to hinder our huge strides forward and progress.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Condemned killer Steven Smith’s argument for mercy isn’t an easy one. Smith acknowledges he intended to rape his girlfriend’s 6-month-old daughter but says he never intended to kill the baby.
The girl, Autumn Carter, died because Smith was too drunk to realize his assault was killing her, Smith’s attorneys argued in court filings with the Ohio Parole Board, which heard the case Tuesday. And Ohio law is clear, they say: A death sentence requires an intent to kill the victim.
A feud between Nelson Mandela’s children and grandchildren has deepened in the days after his death and funeral.
Just days before Madiba’s Sunday funeral, Mandla Mandela was pushed out of the family homestead in Qunu, the Times reported today.
Locks were changed at the estate while water and lights at Mandla’s house were cut.
Transport to the funeral was also not provided for Mandla’s relatives and political and religious leaders aligned to him were sidelined and refused accreditation
I can understand the fire and anger inside the Mandela clan. This is the Dark side of Mandela, what they call the Johari window in psychology.
They want all his belongings, assets and money and now! In fact if one would argue on "the Dark side of the Moon", one can say that he was married 3 times.
During the first 2 marriages he father at least 5 children and he never took care of any of them.
He did not fatherly (psychologically) support them, care for them when they were sick, care for their mother when she was sick, financially and socially support them, see them through school, help them when they had their personal difficulties.
Now Mandela was too busy dancing, partying, dining and discussing politics in stead of taking care of his families.
And his weakness was young and attractive women.......( drink another glass of water for my dry throat)
Like all Great Leaders also he who fathered the new nation also had his weaknesses, " the mind is willing but the flesh is weak".
Now how must Winnie feel? Did she have to feed her children with dry air and dirty water? She also had to have bread and butter on the table and feed those empty stomachs. It is unlikely that the ANC fed her, her children and paid her rent as the one half was either in jail and the other half was enjoying akvavit and the young Swedish blondes with Olof Palme.
It was Winnie who restarted the fire against Apartheid and it was she who kept the hunger and thirst alive for freedom in South Africa. Where were the others? What were they doing? It was Winnie who was arrested time after time. It can be argued that without Winnie, PW would have won the campaign against the communists and the collapsed and tired ANC.
When Mandela left Victor Verster he only owned the clothes that he had on. He did not posses a brick or a bottle of KWV wine.
The funds that were accumulated via donations by him during 1994 - 2013 must rightfully go to his children and Winnie.
And I think, as long as Winnie lives, she must be supported by the SA government and be treated and funded like Elizabeth or Beatrix.
It is not only Mandela who did not take care of his family, because he was too occupied by other activities,
There are many men in the country, I would estimate at least 85% who do the same thing.
Make babies and get occupied by other interesting activities. The woman and children are left on their own and can eat dry bread and drink water.
This is the "Dark side of the Moon" also known as Johari window. And it has nothing to do with colour, race, ethnicity, it is pure psychology.
Mike Tyson is a deeply conflicted man. Reading extracts from his new autobiography recently made me feel a bit grubby. His story is utterly gripping and extremely sad – a deprived childhood, a drunken mother, who slept with men in front of him.
I am ashamed that we changed our immigration laws in such an unyielding way; up to December 2012, border officials could use their discretion when anyone with a criminal conviction tried to visit. Now, there’s a blanket ban.
At the same time, the dumb protester who disrupted the Boat Race in 2012 has won his fight to stay in Britain. Theresa May had wanted to chuck out Australian Trenton Oldfield, who jumped into the Thames and swam into the path of the boats. Having served six weeks of a six-month sentence, he was denied a spousal visa that would have allowed him to stay in the UK. Appealing against that decision, he submitted a file of 100 letters to the court, attesting to his community work, and was backed by activists from the Defend the Right to Protest Group.
Nelson Mandela's death has unleashed a flood of whitewashed, politically correct memorials of a man who spent most of his life as a deeply radical and controversial figure. (Go ahead, @RickSantorum, please continue Mandela's legacy.
