A Texas father and son allegedly shot and killed a neighbor over a trash dispute, and video of the event, taken by the victim’s girlfriend, has been released to the media.
Back on September 1, as The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported at the time, John Miller, 67, and his 31-year-old son, Michael Miller, got into a dispute with neighbor Aaron Howard. Authorities say that Howard went into the alley behind his home to dispose of his trash, where he was confronted by the older Miller, who was armed with a handgun.
According to a statement from the Abilene Police Department on Facebook, the men had been having a dispute about trash that had been brewing for “several days,” although it’s not clear why.
Olivia Culpo’s fans have been absolutely spoiled with the content the star has been putting out on Instagram. From Jamaican bikini shots to glamorous Paris pics, there’s no telling what the former Miss Universe is going to surprise her followers with next. Olivia Culpo, who has already posted pictures featuring the Eiffel Tower twice this week, is serving up another look near the famous monument.
The beauty queen wears a chic black beret with circle detailing and black turtleneck. Black leather pants and a beige handbag complete the look, as Culpo makes a kissing face toward the camera.
Bruce Rogal stunned family, friends, neighbors, and residents at the Bellingham Retirement Community in West Chester when he burst in and shot his parents to death. The tragedy continued when his own life ended after a massive police manhunt, which devolved into a shootout and car crash.
ABC 6 reported that Rogal’s neighbors helped his ex-wife escape him. He drove by and attempted to shoot her as she changed her car’s oil in her driveway. Apparently, Bruce Rogal and Kitty, his ex-wife, had just finalized their divorce that day. Bruce had received the divorce paperwork, and was so upset and enraged that he drove by and made the attempt on Kitty’s life.
Montgomery County Judge Steven O’Neill, who is presiding over the Bill Cosby sexual assault case, has told prosecutors they need to limit the number of accusers who will be speaking at the former comedian’s sentencing hearing, which starts on Monday, September 24.
As reported by USA Today, prosecutors had wanted more of Cosby’s 60 other accusers to speak during the sentencing in order to show that the “pattern of sexual misconduct makes him a predator and a danger.” Only five of his accusers spoke up at his retrial, which took place in April this year. He was ultimately found guilty on three felony counts of aggravated indecent assault.
By the end of the retrial, the jury convicted Cosby of drugging and molesting a woman in 2004.
New Jersey Sheriff Michael Saudino is facing statewide calls to resign after being caught on tape making racist remarks about black people, but the sheriff is refusing to give in to the pressure.
The Democrat apologized on Thursday after WNYC published audio of the Bergen County Sheriff making disparaging remarks about black people in January, just after the inauguration of Gov. Phil Murphy.
In the audio, which was reportedly recorded in a county building, Saudino was heard complaining about criminal justice reforms including efforts to decriminalize marijuana.
“He talked about the whole thing, the marijuana, sanctuary state…better criminal justice reform,” he said in the audio. “Christ almighty, in other words let the blacks come in, do whatever the f**k they want, smoke their marijuana, do this do that, and don’t worry about it. You know, we’ll tie the hands of cops.”
Dogs and cats treated with products that are supposed to protect them from fleas and ticks could be at an increased risk for neurological problems, health regulators warned on Thursday.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration warned pet owners and veterinarians of pills and chewables that contains the pesticide called isoxazoline that ward off tick and flea infestation.
The treatments include products sold under the brand names Nexgard, Simparica, Credelio, and Bravecto.
NBC News said that isoxazoline products work by interfering with the nervous system of the insects, but the chemical does not appear to interfere as much with the nervous system of mammals. A group of researchers has even proposed testing the use of this pesticide to protect people against mosquitoes and other insect bites.
The warning was issued after routine data collection showed that some pets given isoxazoline class treatments experienced adverse events.
A 7-year-old child was raped with a water hose in New Delhi, India, and given 10 rupees and a chocolate bar by her attacker to keep quiet, reports CNN.
The little girl was left outside her home bleeding with a towel wrapped around her waist and was found by her 26-year-old mother. Her mother, whose name was withheld, spoke to CNN about how horrific it was to find her frightened daughter.
“She was holding her stomach and she was bleeding. When I saw her blood, there was no strength left in my body. I felt that there is no life in my body and there is no ground below my feet.”
The child’s mother asked her to point out her attacker in a crowd of men crowded nearby. The 21-year-old man that the little girl identified has been arrested but no further details were given, a deputy commissioner with the Delhi Police, Meghna Yadav, commented.
Fox News host and former judge, Jeanine Pirro, suggested on Thursday that Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Supreme Court nominee of sexually assaulting her, may have been hypnotized by her therapist, Newsweek is reporting.
Pirro, speaking with fellow Fox News host Sean Hannity, suggested Ford either fabricated her memory of the assault or her therapist hypnotized her.
Pirro and Hannity were discussing when the issue of Ford’s alleged sexual assault first came up. Hannity pointed out that reports claim Ford addressed the issue in couples therapy in 2012.
“Yeah, and what was that about? When was the first time Kavanaugh’s name came up? And what about, is this hypnosis? Is this confabulation?” Pirro said, referring to a term used by psychologists to define a memory error that involves the production of fabricated, distorted or misinterpreted memories, as per the Newsweek report. “This is all stuff that is contrary to what the law calls for.”
At least 10 shots were fired in Syracuse, New York, injuring up to seven people, including children, late on Thursday night, according to the Syracuse firefighters union and a witness.
As reported by the Huffington Post, the shooting took place at a family gathering where loved ones were mourning the death of a member of the family who had passed away from cancer on Thursday morning.
The youngest person hit by a bullet in the shooting was an 8-year-old girl. The oldest was 35-years-old. Police responded to the shooting in the northern New York city on Midland Avenue shortly after 9 p.m. last night.
“This is very tragic event,” Syracuse Police Chief Frank Fowler said during a news conference. “This is something that cannot occur in our community.”
A female attacker has stabbed five people, including three children, at a daycare in Queens, New York City, reports The Sun. The stabbing took place this morning at around 3:30 a.m. local time and the alleged attacker has been taken into custody.
The victims at the daycare center, called Mei Xin Care Incorporated and located at the owner’s home in the Flushing area of Queens, included three infant girls and two adults, one of them the father of one of the children at the center and the other a daycare worker. The father suffered a stab wound in the leg and the female worker was stabbed in her body. However, it is uncertain as to whether he is the father of one of the injured babies.
According to ABC News, the daycare worker was being stabbed and screaming loudly when the father ran in and was stabbed in the legs. The female employee is being treated and undergoing surgery at New York-Presbyterian/Queens Hospital.
The U.S. president is planning to add fuel to the fire in his quest to keep immigrant children in detention centers by shifting a reported $260 million around to cover the costs.
CNN reports that a couple million of this amount will be pulled from cancer research and HIV/AIDS prevention programs.
President Donald Trump’s request comes as the program “has been strained by record-high levels of children in custody.” The rising numbers of children is a result of new policies that are keeping them in detention for longer and making it more and more difficult to release the children to adults on the outside, such as extended family members.
At this point, there are 13,000 children currently in the custody of U.S. Health & Human Services (HHS). That figure is “higher than the record-setting 12,800 in custody last week.”
Former rap mogul Marion “Suge” Knight will serve 28 years in a state prison after reaching a plea deal for charges stemming from a 2015 hit-and-run.
Knight, 53 pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter in a January 2015 incident after a vehicle he was riding in struck two pedestrians, a witness Cle “Bone” Sloan and Terry Carter, who was killed in the incident in Compton, California.
People Magazine reported that the deal calls for Knight to serve “22 years in prison on the voluntary manslaughter count, five years because it is a third strike violation and one year for deadly weapon allegations.”
Through the confirmation of this plea deal, Knight resolves two other pending criminal cases against him.
He was indicted for making criminal threats in August 2014 and charged for allegedly stealing a camera from a woman in September 2014, per the People report.
The Los Angeles Times reported that the former rap music mogul contacted the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office about a plea deal on September 19.
President Trump’s administration has gone forward with sanctions against a Chinese military organization and its leader after it purchased fighter jets and missiles from the Russian government, according to reports from The Hill.
The State Department has announced that they will be placing financial restrictions on the Chinese company Equipment Development Department as well as its director, Li Shangfu, due to the Russian sanctions law that was passed by Congress in 2017.
The law, known as the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act, places financial restrictions on any person or organization that involves itself in large financial transactions with the Russian military.
The Equipment Development Department and Shangfu came on the State Department’s radar after it purchased a Su-35 combat aircraft and equipment for S-400 surface-to-air missile systems from the Russian government in late 2017 and 2018.
The purchases occurred after the law was passed and drew attention from monitoring officials due to the amount the organization spent on the purchase.
While Halloween brings plenty of “sexy” variations to costumes, it appears that a costume based on a show centered around the oppression of women is a bridge too far. The “Handmaid’s Tale” style costume was being sold by the online retailer Yandy and modeled after the robes women on the hit television are put into when they are forced into surrogacy, according to reports from USA Today. Retailing for $65, the costume includes a red cape, mini dress, and white bonnet.
A description on Yandy’s website describes the costume, saying, “An upsetting dystopian future has emerged where women no longer have a say. However, we say be bold and speak your mind in this exclusive Brave Red Maiden costume.”
Following U.S. President Donald Trump’s travel ban imposed in 2017, the employees at the biggest search engine in the world wanted to tweak search results to lead people to find pro-immigration organizations and to encourage contacting lawmakers and government agencies.
The Wall Street Journal reported that these changes to the system would have meant that people searching for information on the travel ban – applied to mostly Muslim countries – would be encouraged to donate to these organizations and contact senators and governors to request that the ban be lifted.
Internal emails have been uncovered that explain their plan, and shows that “employees proposed ways to ‘leverage’ search functions and take steps to counter what they considered to be islamophobic, algorithmically biased results from search terms ‘Islam’, ‘Muslim’, ‘Iran’, etc. and prejudiced, algorithmically biased search results from search terms ‘Mexico’, ‘Hispanic’, ‘Latino’, etc.”
Despite reports to the contrary, Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin have not yet tied the knot and are waiting until the terms of their prenuptial agreement are agreed upon before making their relationship official.
The couple was seen heading out of a courthouse in New York City, leading many to believe that the couple had already married on September 13.
TMZ reported that the duo only applied for a marriage license that day and did not become Mr. and Mrs. with a source noting Bieber said to Baldwin, “I can’t wait to marry you, baby” through tears.
The site reported that the twosome is negotiating the terms of their prenuptial agreement, despite reports that Justin is not asking for a prenup because he believes his marriage to Baldwin will last.
The religious couple is planning a marriage for the long haul, but apparently, those close to Bieber have assured him that the legal paperwork is necessary before he and Baldwin tie the knot.
Tran Dai Quang, the president of Vietnam, was announced dead on Friday at the age of 61. Quang passed away at a military hospital in Hanoi after a short period of what was described as a “serious illness,” state media told CNN.
Quang has been the president of Vietnam since April 2016. In Vietnam, the position of president is largely a ceremonial position, with Quang serving alongside the more powerful Communist Party Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong and Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc.
Before his ascension to the presidency, Quang served as a minister of public security.
Quang’s presidency was marked with a crackdown on dissent, with multiple reports of rights activists being jailed during his time in office, according to CNN‘s reports.
Female Yale students were asked by a prominent professor to exude “model-like” feminity if they wanted a job in Brett Kavanaugh’s chambers, according to the Guardian.
Amy Chua, a Yale Law School professor who is also known for writing the bestselling parenting book Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, reportedly advised female students preparing for interviews with Kavanaugh to dress and act in a particular way in order to be treated favorably. In a private meeting last year, Chua said that it was “not an accident” that all of Kavanaugh’s female law clerks “looked like models.” This is the same professor who endorsed Kavanaugh vociferously for the Supreme Court by calling him a “mentor to women.”
After days of holding back and, as The New Republic reported, being praised by his supporters and the media for his “restraint” in not attacking Christine Blasey Ford in public, Donald Trump broke that silence and attacked the California psychologist — who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of attempted rape — on his Twitter account.
Trump himself has been accused of sexual assault or harassment by at least 19 different women, as The Atlantic Monthly has recounted.
The Inquisitr reported last weekend that Trump planned to “go after” Blasey Ford. Trump’s Friday morning Twitter statement echoed comments he made on Thursday night in a Fox News interview with the network’s popular evening personality Sean Hannity, in which Trump wondered aloud why Ford — who says that Kavanaugh attacked her at a party in suburban Maryland in the early 1980s — did not “call the FBI” to report the assault at that time.
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was to be secretly whisked away from London’s Ecuadorian embassy all the way to Russia, an explosive report in the Guardian claims.
The purported plan, which was to be carried on Christmas Eve of 2017, never materialized after it was deemed “too risky” by all those involved in the operation. Kremlin had reportedly offered support for Assange’s escape plan by helping him leave the UK and finally settle in Russia.
The plan involved furnishing Assange with diplomatic documents so that Ecuador could claim that he enjoyed diplomatic immunity. He was to be whisked away in a diplomatic vehicle. As part of the plan, “agents from an international security company camped out in a two-bedroom basement flat on Basil Street” close to the embassy where Assange has been staying for six years.
