High school requires bathroom escorts for students

bathroomFlorida – “I think that having an escort to bring you back and forth to the bathroom is some sort of invasion of privacy,” a Florida high school student told WFTS.

That was a student from Zephyrhills High School in Florida, where a new bathroom policy was implemented Tuesday.

Our partners at WFTS say if students now have to go to the bathroom during class, they can go only if they’re escorted by one of five supervisors. Escorts are not required to take students to the bathroom during passing periods or lunch.

“We’ve had issues with people being accosted coming out of bathrooms, drug deals taking place in the hallways, students having sex in bathrooms. That’s what we’re trying to put a stop to,” teacher Catherine Burgess told WFLA.  More

shelterFlorida – Animals that had supposedly been ‘saved’ from the Hillsborough County Animal Shelter were found in miserable conditions behind a St. Petersburg, Florida, home purportedly serving as a wildlife rescue facility, according to BayNews9.

Officials who removed the 51 animals said they were living in filthy crates in their own urine and feces and without food or water.

Most of the animals had microchips which verified they came from Hillsborough County Animal Services and that their care was “outsourced to the wildlife rescue.”

There are no special permits, or licenses or regulatory agency that oversees the rescues, Doug Brightwell, spokesperson for the county’s animal services told BayNews9.  More

blairDetroit – The saga of a Detroit mother accused of killing two of her children and stuffing their bodies in a freezer took yet another gut-wrenching twist Thursday.

Court records show that one of Mitchelle Blair’s surviving children was forced to place the body of her 13-year-old sister into the deep freezer, the Detroit Free Press reported.

The bodies of Stephen Berry, 9, and Stoni Blair, 13, were discovered Tuesday after an eviction notice was served on Blair for failing to pay her rent.

Police said Blair has two living children, an 8-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl, both of whom knew their siblings had been killed and that the bodies were hidden in the freezer. Both were also beaten by their mother and had scars from being burned and whipped with an extension cord, the court documents said.  More

Pardeep KumarCalifornia – An Indian national who was employed at a Valencia restaurant endured three years of slavery — including regular beatings — and was so scared of his boss that he feared for his life if he ever tried to escape, authorities said Wednesday.

The victim’s boss, 47-year-old Pardeep Kumar (picture), was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of human trafficking and holding a person in involuntary servitude, said Los Angeles County sheriff’s Capt. Merrill Ladenheim.

After confiscating the chef’s passport, Kumar beat his employee with a 2-foot-long piece of steel and a 3-foot-long metal mop handle, Ladenheim said.  More

TASER is an acronym for Thomas A. Swift’s Electric Rifle

Posted By Staff

Date: March 26th, 2015

Category: Nutty News

taserPhysicist Jack Cover first became interested in developing a non-lethal type of weapon when he heard about President Lyndon Johnson’s Blue Ribbon Crime Commission back in the late ‘60s.

The goal of the commission was to develop safe but effective weaponry to be utilized in suppressing riots that were occurring around the country at the time. Not long after, Cover read an article in the L.A. Times about a man who became immobilized by a high-voltage fence while hiking.

This soon led to the discovery that a low electrical current could be pulsed with high voltage to cause involuntary muscle spasms and render a person completely helpless.

In 1970, Cover developed the first prototypes of his electronic control device, which he named after his childhood literary hero, Tom Swift.

The popular science fiction series, authored by Victor Appleton, includes a book entitled Tom Swift and His Electric Rifle. Jack Cover’s ECD weapon fit the description of an ‘electric rifle,’ so he honored his boyhood hero by referencing the story in the acronym for the device.  More Nutty Facts

cockpitUS federal regulations require a second member of the flight crew to be in the cockpit at all times.

If necessary, a flight attendant is required to be in the cockpit when one of the pilots leaves it.

Unlike in the US, European regulations do not provide for two people to be in the cockpit at all times.

Having this regulation may have prevented the crash of the German Airbus A320 in March of 2015 which crashed in the French Alps killing everyone on board.  Pilot was locked out of cockpit moments before plane crashed in Alps

Woman who once dated Robert Durst says he freaked her out with letter written in green ink

durstTexas – Dallas mom Linda Zevallos dated accused murderer Robert Durst in 2000 and received a letter from him after an awkward dinner during which he kicked her under the table when he learned she wanted to order the sea bass — the same thing he chose, she told the Daily News.

Years later she learned the so-called cadaver letter sent to Beverly Hills Police alerting them to the 2000 murder of Durst’s friend Susan Berman was written in green ink. So was her Durst letter.

When she found her own letter stuck in a drawer around 2008, her worst fear was confirmed.

“I thought, ‘Oh dear.’ It was in green ink,” she said. “It was so creepy. I’m still creeped out by the whole thing, 15 years later.”  More

The system has degenerated into a such a cesspool of trouble-making that more than 2,300 train delays attributed to unruly customers were reported in January — an 80 percent increase over the year before.

The numbers were also up 43 percent in December and 53 percent in November.

Police: California woman concocted fake abduction with boyfriend

Category: Nutty News

fakedCalifornia – Police investigating the alleged kidnapping of a woman from a northern California home said — hours after she was “found” more than 400 miles away — that it was a hoax “orchestrated” with the woman’s boyfriend.

Authorities had originally treated the disappearance of 29-year-old Denise Huskins as a kidnap-for-ransom case, but said they had been unable to locate her or any of her family members after Huskins retained an attorney and stopped cooperating with police.

Vallejo police spokesman Lt. Kenny Park said that Huskins and her boyfriend, Aaron Quinn, 30, have now become the targets of an investigation into whether they did anything illegal in reporting a random, violent abduction and a ransom request of $8,500.

“There is no evidence to support the claims that this was a stranger abduction or an abduction at all,” Park said in a statement. “Given the facts that have been presented thus far, this event appears to be an orchestrated event and not a kidnapping.”  More   Video

The decision is likely to spark a U.S. versus Italy extradition battle that would call into play the American legal system’s “double jeopardy” rule.

The court also will decide on the 25-year sentence of Knox’s ex-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, who was also convicted in the murder of  21-year-old British student  Meredith Kercher.

They were found guilty by a trial court in Perugia in 2009, but freed in 2011 after an appellate court overturned the convictions.  More

The motorcycle trooper stopped the car and discovered the passenger was actually a cardboard cutout of the actor who portrays “The Most Interesting Man in the World” in Dos Equis beer ads.

The trooper said people try to cheat the HOV lane all the time but this one was by far the best carpool scam he had ever seen.

The driver told the officer the piece of cardboard was “my best friend.”  More

Laura DowlingWASHINGTON – An odd story, or lack of a story, is spreading after the head florist for the White House left her post more than a month ago without any announcement from the Obamas.

The Washington Post reports President Obama and Michelle Obama have issued statements and praised the work of other staff who left the White House.

But not a peep was made about Laura Dowling’s departure, although she was the head florist since 2009. In fact, no one outside the White House really even knew until now.

“There’s still no official comment on why Dowling is no longer at the White House, but according to a source with close ties to current residence staffers, she was escorted from the building on Friday Feb. 13,” states the Post.  More

speedFord is hoping to prevent accidents and speeding tickets by introducing cars that can see what the speed limit is and preventing heavy-footed motorists from driving any faster.

Ford’s Intelligent Speed Limiter tech will first appear on the new Ford S-Max that’s launching in Europe that could just change the way that we drive.

A camera mounted on the windshield scans the road signs on the sides of the highway and, when the vehicle enters a 20mph zone, the system reduces the top speed to match.

Rather than controlling the speed with automatic braking, the car limits its own velocity by adjusting the amount of fuel being pushed to the engine.  More

Cornell dean says ISIS welcome on campus in undercover video

deanThis guy is either the dumbest Ivy League bigwig ever or politically correct to a fault — for welcoming offers to bring ISIS and Hamas to Cornell University.

A video sting operation shows Cornell’s assistant dean for students, Joseph Scaffido, agreeing to everything suggested by an undercover muckraker posing as a Moroccan student.

Scaffido casually endorses inviting an ISIS “freedom fighter’’ to conduct a “training camp” for students at the upstate Ithaca campus — bizarrely likening the activity to a sports camp.

Is it OK to bring a humanitarian pro-“Islamic State Iraq and Syria” group on campus, the undercover for conservative activist James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas asks.  More

wellMINERAL WELLS, Texas – Relatives of a Texas 9-year-old who plunged into a well while playing in a vacant home’s yard are praising their “hero” neighbors for executing a swift rescue.

Shawnee Coomer said her nephew, Jaxson Tune, 9, was playing with some other kids in the yard of a vacant home when he fell through the tin and old wooden boards covering an old well.

Witnesses said the boy was doing pull-ups on the bar over the well before he fell through.
