Date: April 18th, 2014

transvUK – A retired transgender security guard from Thamesmead has been left “gutted” after her lodger made off with three of her corsets.

Roxanne Yeatman, who lives in a ground floor bedsit in Ricardo Path, says she let the 44-year-old alcoholic stay for a week so she could escape her abusive, drug-taking boyfriend.

But the woman allegedly repaid this generosity by making off with four black suspender belts and three corsets, leaving her with just one.

‘Patriot Party’ gathers at Bundy’s Nevada ranch – Reid: “domestic terrorists”

Posted By Staff

Date: April 18th, 2014

ranchNevada – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called supporters of rancher Cliven Bundy “domestic terrorists” Thursday, turning up the rhetorical heat on the already tense situation at the Nevada cattle operation.

“Those people who hold themselves out to be patriots are not. They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists,” Mr. Reid in remarks at a luncheon, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, which sponsored the event. “… I repeat: What went on up there was domestic terrorism.”

The Nevada Democrat was referring to the hundreds of Bundy backers — some armed, some from out of state — who congregated at the ranch last week in a show of support as the Bureau of Land Management began seizing the family’s cattle in a dispute over grazing fees.

No shots were fired, although Ammon Bundy, Cliven Bundy’s adult son, was shot by a Taser last week during an argument with federal agents.  More

Cleric names library after Usama bin Laden

Posted By Staff

Date: April 18th, 2014

osamaISLAMABAD, Pakistan - Most didn’t notice the new library at this Islamic seminary for girls near Pakistan’s capital, until locals saw the paper sign in Urdu posted on its wooden door: “Library of Usama bin Laden, the Martyr.”

Cleric Maulana Abdul Aziz, a radical preacher who runs the Jamia Hafsa madrassa, wanted to honor the memory of the al Qaeda leader, killed in a May 2011 raid by U.S. Navy SEALs on his hiding place in Abbottabad, a garrison town about 75 miles north of the capital, Islamabad.

But while the library’s name has garnered attention across Pakistan, a country where public opinion remains strongly anti-American and religious students today still idolize the man behind the Sept. 11 terror attacks, his image increasingly has faded from public view in recent years.

As Pakistan has seen thousands killed in its own war against its local Taliban, a public that once named its own children after the Saudi millionaire has grown increasingly angry with militant violence.  More

Judge Loses Cool, Tells Convicted Killer: ‘I Hope You Die In Prison’

Posted By Staff

Date: April 18th, 2014

Camia GametA Michigan judge lost his cool when a woman convicted of killing her boyfriend interrupted a family member of the victim who was speaking to the court during sentencing.

“Is that it?” Camia Gamet, the convicted killer, asked.

That’s when Jackson County Circuit Judge John McBain delivered the type of rant rarely heard in a courtroom.

“You’re going to shut your mouth or I’m going to have some duct tape put on it,” he said. “You gutted him like a fish… you were relentless.”

As Gamet appeared to grin and smirk, the judge really let loose.  More

Man smothered crying son to play video games

Posted By Staff

Date: April 18th, 2014

codyA Florida man suffocated his young, crying son so he could play video games on his Xbox and watch TV, sheriff’s deputies said Friday.

Cody Wygant, 24, is charged with third-degree murder and child neglect. He was being held Friday without bail at the Citrus County Jail.

Sixteen-month-old Daymeon Wygant wasn’t breathing when emergency crews arrived at the home Thursday morning. The child pronounced dead at a hospital, investigators said.

“It is inconceivable that a father could kill his infant son — it just baffles the mind,” Sheriff Jeff Dawsy said.  ”Our only sense of relief now comes from knowing that we did exactly what we needed to do to bring justice to him swiftly.  More

Robber, 74, who was homesick for prison to be sentenced

Posted By Staff

Date: April 17th, 2014

Walter UnbehaunCHICAGO –  Walter Unbehaun has spent nearly all of his adult life behind bars, so it’s not surprising that he faces sentencing Thursday for yet another crime, a bank robbery last year. His reason for robbing the bank is surprising, though: He was homesick for prison.

The 74-year-old high-school dropout and part-time bathtub repairman probably isn’t the first long-term convict to find he prefers being barked at by guards to life on the outside, which has its own demands. But living alone and feeling unhappy, Unbehaun decided to change his situation by committing a crime in order to get caught.

On Feb. 9 of last year, he entered a Chicago-area bank with a cane but no disguise, displayed a revolver in his waistband to a teller and told her softly over and over, “I don’t want to hurt you.” With $4,178 in loot, he then drove to a nearby motel and waited for police to arrive.  More

School Gives Most Idiotic Advice Ever to Deal with Bullies

Posted By Staff

Date: April 17th, 2014

school bullyLincoln, Nebraska – Zeman Elementary School fifth-graders were recently sent home with a flyer to help teach them how to act if they’re being bullied.  It’s more shi**y than you can possibly ever imagine. Here’s just a few of the highlights:

Rule  #7: Do not tell on bullies. The number one reason bullies hate their  victims, is because the victims tell on them. Telling makes the bully want to retaliate. Tell an adult only when a real injury or crime (theft  of something valuable) has occurred. Would we keep our friends if we  tattled on them?

Rule #8: Don’t be a sore loser.

Rule #9: Learn to laugh at yourself and not get “hooked” by put-downs. Make a joke out of it or agree with the put-down. For example: “If you think I’m ugly, you should see my sister!”  More

Iran Murder Victim’s Mother Stops Hanging

Posted By Staff

Date: April 17th, 2014

iranIran – The 18-year-old victim’s parents were expected to kick away the chair supporting the condemned man, named as Balal, at the public execution and send him to his death.

But once he was blindfolded and the noose put around his neck, she instead slapped his face and said she forgave him.

As she climbed up to the gallows, Samereh Alinejad asked the large crowd that had gathered to watch the execution whether they knew “how difficult it is to live in an empty house”.

The father of the victim, Abdolghani Hozzeinzad, then removed the noose from around the man’s neck as the convict’s own mother ran up to embrace the woman who had saved her son.  More

Then she learned that none of her doctors accept her Obamacare plan. Figueroa says she cannot find a doctor who accepts her Obamacare plan; indeed, there are only six doctors in all of Staten Island who take her plan, none of whom she’s been able to get appointments with.  More

Judge tells father to stop emailing his children in all capital letters

Posted By Staff

Date: April 17th, 2014

capsLONDON - A High Court judge in England told an “insensitive” father that he must stop emailing his children in all capital letters because it looks like he is yelling at them.

The Israeli father is in a custody dispute involving his 13-year-old son and 9-year-old daughter. During the dispute, the children have been moving back and forth between England and Israel.

The judge ordered that the father’s old style of emails, which were “equivalent to him shouting,” needed to be improved upon with the help of a family assistance officer.

“He needs help to make his messages appropriate and child friendly,” the judge said. “There’s nothing worse than an email suggestive that the sender is shouting at you.”  More

JenniferPORTLAND, Oregon – An Oregon woman  whose hair used to reach her backside has filed a $10,000 lawsuit against  Walmart for selling a shampoo that allegedly caused her hair to get so tangled she was forced to cut most of it.

According to Jennifer Fahey’s suit, the bottle of “Equate Everyday Clean Dandruff Shampoo” she bought at a Portland Walmart caused her hair to become  impossibly entangled in seconds.
