Police say a South Carolina woman high on meth bit her lover’s penis during a threesome and then lunged naked at cops who responded to the bloody attack.
The incident happened this week, when an unnamed woman reportedly bit her lover while they were high on drugs and having a tryst with a second man. As the New York Post reported, the attack left the woman covered in blood and the victim apparently with serious injuries.
It was not clear what prompted the attack, but local police chief Dennis Turner said officers had to use a Taser to subdue the woman, who was on all fours when she lunged at officers.
“Honestly, it’s one of the most disturbing videos, body cam videos, I have seen in my career. It honestly reminded me of something you would see off of a horror movie,” Turner told Live 5 news.
Poet, author, and playwright Ntozake Shange, famously known for her Tony Award-nominated play, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When the Rainbow is Enuf, has passed away at the age of 70, according to a report from Vulture.
Shange had suffered a number of strokes in recent years, but her health was believed to be improving. Unfortunately, she died peacefully in her sleep in an assisted living facility in Bowie, Maryland, just days after her 70th birthday.
Her family posted the heartbreaking news on her official Twitter page.
Shange was born Paulette L. Williams in New Jersey on October 18, 1948. She took an interest in poetry at a young age, studied at the Barnard College in New York City, and later traveled to California to earned a masters degree at USC.
LeBron James has no doubts about whom he’d want you to vote for in case you are a Texan.
The LA Lakers star, who found himself in the crosshairs of a public tiff with president Donald Trump earlier this year, donned a hat of Texas Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke ahead of his team’s matchup with the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday night, according to TheHill.
In an image shared by LA Lakers on Twitter on Saturday, James can be seen donning a white hat with the words “Beto for Senate.”
Humpback whales produce haunting songs whose acoustics travel for miles within their ocean habitat. The reason behind why they do so aren’t known, but researchers surmise that that whales do it to communicate with others and to find mates. Lately, though, their eerily beautiful melodies are being shortened and silenced in reaction to human activities that create noise in their environment.
EcoWatch reports that Japanese researchers discovered that the gentle giants became silent or shortened their song whenever they hear shipping noises. Think of a chirping cricket when you walk too close to it, and you can kind of get the idea.
The study, published in in the journal PLOS ONE, was conducted by the Hokkaido University in Japan and the Ogasawara Whale Watching Association. During the study that lasted from February to May 2017, researchers utilized underwater recorders to observe how a ship passing the humpbacks affected their whalesongs.
Gregory A. Bush, the man accused of shooting two African-Americans at a Kentucky Kroger supermarket on Wednesday, reportedly tried to enter a predominately black church minutes before the shooting incident, CNN reported.
Surveillance video at Jeffersontown, Kentucky’s First Baptist Church shows a man authorities believed to be Bush trying to enter the building about 15 minutes before the Kroger shooting, police chief Sam Rogers said, CNN stated.
A First Baptist member who was sitting in the parking lot at the time also witnessed someone he believed to be Bush pulling on the doors of the church and banging on them after midday service had ended, according to WDRB-TV.
“Loss of life anywhere is pretty tragic, but just to think that an hour and a half earlier we had 70 people in the church,” First Baptist church administrator Billy Williams told the television station.
“But by the time he came through, all doors were locked, and there were probably eight or 10 still in the building.”
It’s been a busy year for the royal family. There was the April birth of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s third child, Louis, in April followed by the May nuptials of William’s younger brother Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. September brought us the wedding of Princess Eugenie, the youngest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, quickly followed by the announcement that Harry and Meghan are expecting their first child in the spring. In what has already been a year full of milestones, one tabloid published an article this week that claimed that William and Kate are now expecting their fourth child. Unfortunately for royal watchers, Gossip Cop has dug into this rumor and revealed that it is not true.
After offering two of the largest lottery jackpots in history within a week of each other, the nationwide Mega Millions and Powerball games returned to “normal” this week.
On Saturday, two tickets, one in Iowa and one in New York, shared the Powerball winning jackpot of $687.8 million with a cash payout of $396.2 million. The total represented the third largest prize in Powerball’s history. The winning numbers were 8-12-13-19-27 with the Powerball number 4.
“Even we are awestruck,” Iowa Lottery chief executive Terry Rich said Sunday about the win. “This goes to show what we’ve said many times: You never know when the next big winner will hit. We’re conducting the standard security checks for the ticket involved, but this is definitely a very exciting time in Iowa for lottery players. And if there was ever a time to double-check your lottery tickets, this is it,” Rich continued.
A woman from Charlotte, North Carolina has been fired from her job after her racist rant against two black sisters went viral on social media. The woman worked at Spectrum Enterprises.
In the viral video, the drunk woman, identified as Susan Westwood, is seen engaging with two African-American sisters and can be heard hurling racist comments and questioning why the women were at the complex.
“Why are you hanging out here? Do you live here? I’m white and hot… and I make $125,000 a year and I want to make sure that you’re all up in here.”
The woman has been dubbed “South Park Susan” on the Internet for her racist remarks. She is also facing charges after the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department responded to the incident, per a report by WBTV.
One day after the horrendous Pittsburgh synagogue shooting which claimed the lives of 11 people, Donald Trump retweeted a post from Dinesh D’Souza, the controversial Republican lobbyist and commentator who was in the crosshairs earlier this year for retweeting anti-Semite posts including the hashtag #BurnTheJews, reports Slate.
Self-confessed anti-Semite Robert Bowers tore into a prayer meeting during the early hours of Saturday morning, telling police officers that he “wanted all Jews to die.” And while president Trump condemned Bowers for being a “wacko” who was threatening the unity of the nation with hate, he didn’t care for even the optics when he retweeted a post by Dinesh D’Souza on Twitter just a few hours later.
Rose Mallinger likely knew every person at the Life Congregation Synagogue in the Squirrel Hill. At 97, she attended synagogue there every week with her daughter and was beloved by other members of the congregation.
Mallinger was among the 11 people killed on Saturday when a gunman burst into the synagogue, shouting anti-Semitic slurs and opening fire on people gathered there. Officials released the names of the victims on Sunday, including the 97-year-old woman. As CNN reported, Mallinger was a resident of the Squirrel Hill neighborhood where the shooting took place, and was described by fellow congregant Robin Friedman as the “sweetest, lovely lady.”
The shooting has drawn reactions from across the country and has also sparked debate over gun control. Bill Peduto, Pittsburgh’s mayor, rose the idea of restricting guns for those who have expressed violent or irrational behavior.
Pipe bomber suspect Cesar Sayoc’s mother had previously told security at her condo complex in Florida to bar her son from gaining access after Sayoc showed up in a Make America Great Hat in 2016, The New York Daily News is reporting.
Sayoc, 56, who was arrested Friday on suspicion of sending 14 pipe bombs through the U.S. mail to prominent Democrats and other liberals around the country, frequently engaged in arguments over his right-wing opinions with his mother. However, what caused her to tell security to keep him out what his wearing of the MAGA hat, according to the Daily News. That is because Sayoc’s mother is a registered Democrat and was afraid that her son would tarnish her reputation in her politically engaged and progressive community, the report contends.
Elon Musk had a two-word response for those asking him how it felt to lose $20 million because of a tweet he made back in August: “worth it.”
The technology investor and entrepreneur, who founded SpaceX and Tesla, was fined $20 million by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for misleading investors. Apart from a $20 million personal fine, his company, Tesla, was also fined $20 million separately, but it appears Musk has no qualms about losing so much money.
As the Guardian reports, Musk had made posts back in August where he said that he was considering making Tesla a private company and even claimed that funding had been secured for the same. But his tweets had absolutely no basis in fact, resulting in a stern rebuke from the Securities and Exchange Commission, which concluded that investors of Musk’s company had suffered because of the ensuing market chaos.
A youth football game in Minnesota came to an abrupt end this week when a group of parents brawled on the sidelines, leading to someone firing a gun.
The incident took place in St. Paul, where police said that a game between St. Paul Frogtown Football and North Area Titan Football erupted into chaos. As KSTP-TV reported, the game was part of a tournament for 9-year-old and 10-year-old players — and a group of adults began fighting on the sidelines. During this fight, one person pulled a gun and fired it, though there were conflicting reports as to where the gun was aimed as it was discharged. Some witnesses claim that the gun was fired into the air, while other say the shot was aimed at the crowd of people.
Gab is a social network platform whose user base totals less then half of one percent of Facebook’s total users, but it has suddenly found itself thrust into national news this week. And while there is a train of thought that says there’s no such thing as bad publicity, this story may be an exception to that concept.
Alleged Pittsburgh synagogue gunman Robert Bowers was a frequent user of Gab. There, antisemitic language that would have been policed by other social media platforms such as Facebook was permitted. A central element of Gab’s cornerstone principles as a platform is a lack of interference in the freedom of speech expressed by its users.
Daylight saving time is winding down in Europe — likely forever.
On Sunday, countries across the continent will move back an hour as mandated by the European Union in a directive from 2002. As ABC.net.au reported, the European Council could be bringing an end to that practice, recommending that all EU member states stop changing their clocks in the spring — and that the practice be halted indefinitely.
As the report noted, the EU issued a public consultation asking whether residents would prefer the practice be abolished, and whether those surveyed would rather have “permanent summertime” or “permanent standard time.” More respondents opted for a “permanent summertime.”
As the report noted, synchronizing the clocks in Europe could help to clear up time disparities across the continent.
In what will definitely go down as one of the worst tragedies witnessed in modern sport, British soccer club Leicester City lost their owner, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who died after a private helicopter carrying him and five others spiraled out of control on Saturday night, reports BBC.
The Inquisitr reported earlier today about videos showing the moment of the crash, with BT studio cameras catching the sound of the explosion even as the postgame show went on. Earlier on Saturday, Leicester City, which was taken over by Thai retail magnate Srivaddhanaprabha in 2010, managed a draw in their game against West Ham. The owner, who is typically present in all home matches and subsequently flies to London in a private helicopter, boarded the flight with his daughter and three other people. Soon after the helicopter took off from the pitch at the King Power stadium, its engine failed and it went spiraling out of control. It crashed a few hundred meters away from the stadium’s pitch.
A 3D print of Joaquin Oliver, one of the victims of February’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida was unveiled in New York Times Square this week by his father to protest using 3D printers to make guns.
Manuel Oliver called the sculpture of his son, who was 17 at the time of his death, the world’s first “3D-printed activist,” adding that it was a statement against gun violence and to encourage voter registration Thursday, ABC News reported.
Oliver and his wife Patricia founded the nonprofit organization Change the Ref in an effort to raise awareness of mass shootings and to reduce the influence of organizations like the National Rifle Association on gun legislation, according to its website.
An executive from the Fox Business Network denounced the anti-Semitic remarks of a guest who appeared on one of the network’s leading shows, Lou Dobbs Tonight.
Gary Schreier — the network’s senior vice president for programming — released a statement on Sunday wherein he condemned an “anti-Semitic trope” used by a guest on Dobbs’ show earlier last week, per a report by CNN.
The remarks sparked widespread condemnation from some audience members when the same episode was re-telecast on Saturday — just a few hours after the Pittsburgh synagogue attack took place, killing 11 people. According to the Anti-Defamation League, the attack was the “deadliest anti-Semitic attack in the history of the United States.”
Schreier denounced the guest’s comments, and said that the episode in question has been pulled from all future scheduling.
Jewish leaders in Pittsburgh have a direct message for Donald Trump: stay out our city until you’re ready to denounce white nationalists.
On Saturday, a gunman opened fire inside the Tree of Life Synagogue in the city’s Squirrel Hill neighborhood, killing 11 people who were attending religious services. Though the gunman had expressed anger with Donald Trump and believed the president was under the control of Jewish interests, he had also parroted conspiracy theories pushed by Trump that Jewish billionaire George Soros was funding anti-American protests and movements.
Trump has come under fire for stoking racial anger and emboldening white nationalists, and a group of Jewish leaders in Pittsburgh are now calling on him to denounce these groups. Eleven members of Bend the Arc: A Jewish Partnership for Justice, wrote an open letter to Trump demanding that he stop using divisive and racially charged language that enflamed hatred among many of his supporters.
The filming of a Staten Island-based drama was recently cut short by locals who may have taken exception to a police brutality scene being shot at the site of the late Eric Garner’s death.
The New York Daily News reports that the team working the set of “The Fifth Boro” decided to call the production off after a bottle came flying in and nearly hit actor Marc John Jefferies on Thursday night, October 25. Jefferies was preparing to enact the role of an African American suspect who gets roughed up by a couple of white cops – when he says glass shattered “about 8 inches” away from him.
