A 30-year-old Florida man is facing charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after neighbors overheard him threatening to kill another person “with kindness.”
According to a report from the Pensacola News Journal, Bryan Stewart of Milton, Florida allegedly cut his neighbor with a machete-style knife that had the word “kindness” written on it, not long after the unnamed victim, together with another neighbor, came to Stewart’s house due to the yelling and banging they heard at the residence.
Per an arrest report from the Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office, the loud noises at Stewart’s residence had been bothering neighbors all day. At around midnight, the victim heard the suspect telling another person in the house that he was planning to “kill ’em with kindness.” According to WTXL, neighbors were similarly concerned because a woman and a child were also inside the house, which prompted two of them to approach the residence and find out what was going on.
Police were called to a home in Chico, California at 9:12 a.m. Saturday morning following reports of an apparent drug overdose. What they found was chilling. One person had already died as a result of ingesting what police believe to be fentanyl, a substance commonly associated with drug overdoses. Fentanyl was likely mixed with other deadly substances to create a sort of cocktail. In addition, many others were in critical condition after they all took turns taking the drug. Police present on the scene are calling the incident one of the worst mass drug overdoses in years, according to CNN.
Upon taking in the horrific scene, police rushed to work administering assistance to all those affected. They provided life saving measures to one person after another. At one point, Chico Fire Department Division Chief Jesse Alexander said he saw six people all undergoing CPR at the same time.

22-year-old Natalie Corona was a police officer in northern California. On Thursday evening she was merely assisting victims involved in a triple car crash in the city of Davis, California, when her life was brought to an abrupt end. A man on a bicycle shot the young officer multiple times and then shot at firemen at the scene of the crash. Corona later died at the UC Davis Medical Center as a result of her wounds, according to CNN.
A shooting incident took place at a Utah mall earlier today, leaving at least two people injured, per the New York Daily News.
Local law enforcement is currently attempting to track down multiple suspects who opened fire at Fashion Place Mall, located on South State Street in Murray, Utah. As the Salt Lake Tribune details, police have stated that two people were injured in the shooting. The two victims have been transported to Intermountain Medical Center, though, at this time, reports indicate that the two are not critically injured.
In an effort to evacuate all patrons to safety, police officers directed and escorted mallgoers outside, gathering at a nearby Taco Bell, and a Red Lobster located close by.
While many tend to think of airport security as an infallible line of defense, that mental image might not be as comforting as once thought. As reported by CNN, a Delta Airlines passenger managed to board a Toyko-bound flight with a handgun in tow.
Shortly after the beginning of the New Year, an unnamed traveler boarded a flight traveling to Toyko Narita International Airport from Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport while carrying a gun, avoiding the security measures put in place by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
The TSA confirmed — via a press release — that a firearm did, in fact, find its way onto a Delta Airlines flight.
“TSA has determined standard procedures were not followed and a passenger did in fact pass through a standard screening TSA checkpoint with a firearm at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport on the morning of January 3,” the press release notes.
It was back in September of last year that Paul Anthony Menchaca of Gilbert, Arizona was arrested at his home located near Val Vista Drive and Williams Field Road for pretending to have down syndrome and posing as a woman hiring caretakers to bathe and change her adult son’s diapers.
According to ABC 15– an Arizona news outlet – the first victim told police she was hired by a woman called Amy to bathe and change the diapers of her son who had down syndrome over the summer of last year.
A second and third victim – who knew each other as well as the first victim – took over the caretaker duties in July of last year. All three victims confirmed Menchaca would become aroused while they bathed him.
Thirteen-year-old Wisconsin girl Jayme Closs was abducted by a 21-year-old man, who allegedly shot and killed both of her parents. For three months there was no sign of the teen. Although her aunt, Jennifer Smith, knew she might not ever see Jayme again, she refused to give up hope. She just couldn’t shake the feeling that somehow her beloved niece was still alive. She bought Jayme Christmas presents, wrapped them, and left them under the tree with the hope that one day she’d be able to open them. All of her dreams came true this past week when she was reunited with Jayme on Friday, according to People.
Being told you have cancer is a frightening, nerve-wracking ordeal, but unnecessarily undergoing surgery to remedy a disease that doesn’t even exist is unfathomable.
Even worse is being the patient who was led to believe he didn’t have cancer, but really did, and missed out on urgent treatments.
Iowan Rickie Lee Huitt was told by his urologist Carl Meyer that he had a serious case of prostate cancer and had only five years to live if he didn’t have an operation. The 67-year-old underwent surgery to remove his prostate, reported the Des Moines Register.
Afterward, Huitt suffered from incontinence and other significant side effects from the surgery. As a precaution, Huitt’s prostate was evaluated after it was removed and that’s when doctors discovered he didn’t have cancer.
“It’s mind blogging. It’s a terrible, sad thing,” said Huitt’s attorney Randy Shanks.
Landscaper David Zuber asked a client if he could bury his dead cat in the man’s backyard, but police say Zuber instead buried the body of his missing 1-year-old daughter.
The incident took place in Albuquerque where police said the 26-year-old Zuber called Thomas Dunn in late December saying he needed to bury a cat. Dunn’s family had used the yard as a pet cemetery, so he told the landscaper it was all right. But as the Associated Press reported, Zuber instead brought the body of his infant daughter, Anastazia Romero, in a trash bag that was stuffed into a duffel bag under the remains of a dog.
A relative of Zuber later called police to say that the girl had drowned, prompting a search that ended in Dunn’s backyard, where the girl’s remains were found and unearthed.
As the longest partial government shutdown in U.S. history continues, nearly 40 million low-income American households are slated to receive payments for their February food stamps several weeks early in an effort to avoid the funding issue resulting from the shutdown.
According to Politico, both states and grocery store chains are currently scrambling as this isn’t something that has ever happened before.
To date, there are just shy of 40 million people enrolled in the SNAP (Supplemental National Assistance Program) across the United States. Panic started to set in when news broke that funding would run out for the food stamp’s program for February because of the shutdown. Things calmed just a little when Trump’s administration announced a plan to pay out the nearly $5 billion in February benefits.
In light of the torrent of revelations this week that showed that the FBI had opened a counterintelligence operation into whether Donald Trump was compromised by Russia, and the fact that Trump asked his interpreter to conceal the notes of his conversation with Vladimir Putin even from members of his own administration after a meeting with the Russian president in 2017, national security expert Samantha Vinograd said she is in no doubt that Trump was “aiding and abetting” Russian intelligence, according to Newsweek.
Earlier this week, the Washington Post reported that Trump had gone to “extraordinary lengths to conceal details of his conversations” with Putin.
“U.S. officials said there is no detailed record, even in classified files, of Trump’s face-to-face interactions with the Russian leader at five locations over the past two years,” the Post reported.
Police in Wisconsin have released the first images of the space where teen Jayme Closs was held captive for nearly three months, a cramped basement space strewn with garbage that was described by one news outlet as a “torture chamber.”
The 13-year-old managed to escape last week, finding her way to a neighbor who kept Closs safe until police could arrive. Closs had been kidnapped on October 15, after her parents were murdered in their Barron, Wisconsin, home. Police said she was kidnapped and held hostage by Jake Thomas Patterson, who is also accused of killing her parents, and they have now released images of the garbage-strewn room where she was held.
The New York Post published images of the space inside a rural cabin where Patterson is alleged to have kept Closs. The report noted that the grounds of the cabin were littered with old cars, rusty bikes, and assorted garbage.
As more and more federal security screeners at airports refuse to work without pay, the Miami International Airport was forced to shut down one of its terminals and send TSA workers from that location to busier checkpoints in the airport in order to maintain an appropriate level of security at the bustling facility.
Federal screeners are calling in sick at double the normal rate for Miami, reported the Miami Herald, and TSA managers aren’t sure they’ll have enough workers to operate all 11 checkpoints during normal hours while the government shutdown looms, said Miami International Airport spokesman Greg Chin.
The terminal that was shut down is used by United, Bahamasair, Frontier Airlines, Aruba Airline and Sun Country. It was shut down for significant periods of time during the weekend, a schedule that was supposed to continue into Monday and possible throughout the coming week.
A spokeswoman with United issued a statement predicting that passengers would not be impacted by the potentially nightmarish logistic rearrangement.
Of all the people President Trump hates the most, Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos is at the top of the list. The 55-year-old billionaire has taken an onslaught of jokes and criticism from the President lately following the news outbreak of his alleged affair. Deemed Jeff “Bozos” by the president himself, the billionaire recently announced his split from his wife MacKenzie Bezos. Rumors quickly spread about his alleged relationship with former television anchor Lauren Sanchez, the likely cause of their breakup. With the spotlight on Bezos’ messy divorce, Trump is taking the opportunity to attack him for both his personal and professional failures, according to Fox News.
Vladimir Putin was directly supportive of a plot to have Russian agents infiltrate the NRA and use it to sow discord in the United States, a new report claims.
The report from the Daily Beast, based on a review of U.S. intelligence reports, shows that the Kremlin blessed efforts to have Russia central bank official Alexander Torshin and alleged spy Maria Butina aggressively court NRA leaders and use the organization to support Republican candidates. The report noted that while senior Russian government officials denied any involvement with the NRA, evidence gathered by worldwide intelligence agencies shows otherwise.
“This reporting indicates that Alexander Torshin was working with the blessing of the Kremlin, at a minimum,” a European intelligence official told the outlet. The official said that the NRA would seem a logical target if a county were looking to influence American politics because the gun lobbyist group has such a strong influence, especially among Republicans.
President Trump’s political rise more closely echoed that of Pat Buchanan’s presidential candidates than is often acknowledged. Buchanan, the former Nixon and Reagan White House aide who ran for president in 1992, 1996, and 2000, had also built his campaigns around immigration restriction, had also used the slogan “America First,” had opposed NAFTA and other free trade agreements, and had also proposed building a wall along the border with Mexico.
Buchanan even told the Daily Beast in 2016 that Trump had “stole my playbook” for his own campaign, in a piece written by his longtime McLaughlin Group co-panelist Eleanor Clift.
“The people who like the Donald remember America as it was and don’t really like what it’s become,” Buchanan said at the time.
Trump, on Sunday, seemingly returned the favor by quoting a Buchanan column in praise of Trump’s stance in the current government shutdown battle over border security funding.
President Trump has been increasingly vocal regarding his desire to dissemble Obamacare and alter the landscape of American health care. In an attempt to weaken an Obamacare mandate on contraceptives, he planned to take away regulations set in place by the previous administration. However, his plan was quickly foiled when a California Judge halted his actions, according to CNN.
The Trump Administration’s new rules were expected to be set into place this coming week. Known as the Final Rules, Trump’s new legislation would reportedly make it more difficult for women to purchase contraceptives to prevent unwanted pregnancies. The goal of the Administration is to weaken the Affordable Care Act’s mandate requiring employers to provide insurance coverage for contraceptives free of charge.
Aides close to Donald Trump have said that the U.S. president hardly ever prepares his speeches in full, depending much more on his “instinct” to carry him through. His former Secretary of Defense, James Mattis, who quit last month after the two didn’t agree on the U.S. military role in the Middle East, said that Trump is very “impulsive” and could “lie” his way out of an interview. It might or might not be true, but during an interview on Fox News this week, Trump did something which might not be considered within the ambit of most politicians’ media appearances.
It emerged this week that Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, who has already made revelations damning to Trump, is set to testify before the House Oversight Committee next month. Discussing this development, Fox News host Jeanine Pirro asked Trump about his views in an interview broadcast on Saturday.
A scientist at a laboratory in Indonesia is thought to have been eaten alive by a crocodile that she was feeding at the facility, according to the Daily Mail.
Officials at the laboratory believe that the crocodile, who goes by the name Merry, is likely to have stood on its hind legs and jumped up to eight feet off the ground in order to grab hold of the scientist and drag her into the enclosure.
The 44-year-old Deasy Tuwo was last seen throwing meat into the crocodile’s pool during feeding time on Friday morning. The crocodile was later found with her remains still in its jaws within the enclosure at the CV Yosiki Laboratory, located in North Sulawesi, Indonesia.
Tuwo’s colleagues only realized what had happened later in the morning when someone spotted a strange shape under the water inside the enclosure. They later found the crocodile with her body in its jaws.
Actor Chris Evans is known for fighting villains in his role as Marvel Comic’s Captain America in both the movie franchise named after the superhero as well as the Avengers series, but also frequently brings the fight off the screen and on to his Twitter page.
The movie star is a regular critic of President Donald Trump and his allies, and most recently set his sights on South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, Newsweek reported, calling him out for his support of the president.
On Friday, January 11, Senator Graham posted a series of tweets to his own account on the social media platform detailing a meeting he had with Trump and his team, in which they concluded that Democrats were not interested in making a deal to end the government shutdown and will “never” support the construction of a border wall, alleging that they “hate President Trump more than they want to fix problems.”
