George StinneyCOLUMBIA, South Carolina – A judge has overturned the murder conviction of a 14-year-old black boy who was executed in 1944 in the deaths of two white girls in segregated South Carolina.

Circuit Judge Carmen Mullen ruled the state did a great injustice when it put George Stinney in the electric chair less than two months after he was convicted and just 12 weeks after he was arrested.

Mullen heard testimony in the 70-year-old case in January, but most of the evidence from the original trial was gone.

Mullen says Stinney got an unfair trial and it was impossible to determine the boy’s guilt or innocence.  More   History

I’m a black Mormon, so there’s no way I could be racist

Category: Bizarre, strange, Weird

Aaron HodgesPORTLAND, Oregon – Nordstrom has fired a sales associate who made a statement about killing police on his Facebook page.

Aaron Hodges, 37, of Portland, suggested killing a white officer for every black man killed by police. His comment quickly circulated online, prompting complaints both online and directly to his employer.

Hodges, who is African-American, said Tuesday he’s troubled by the police killings of Michael Brown in Missouri, Eric Garner in New York and Tamir Rice in Ohio, and he made the Facebook comment in an exchange with a friend from high school. Hodges said he sometimes says outrageous things to “bring things into scope” and didn’t literally mean that white officers should be killed.

“I’m a black Mormon, so there’s no way I could be racist,” he said. “I’m just passionate about black issues because nobody else seems to be.”  More

tanATLANTA, Georgia - A new report found that thousands of people each year visit the emergency room due to reasons related to indoor tanning.

On average, 3,234 people visit the emergency room each year as skin burns, fainting and eye injuries were among the most common injuries found in the study which was published Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine, CBS News reported.

“Some of these more immediate injuries are putting someone at more risk for the longer term problems,” Dr. Gery P. Guy Jr., a co-author on the paper and health economist in the Division of Cancer Prevention and Control’s Epidemiology and Applied Research Branch at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told CBS News.

bwiBALTIMORE – A plane makes an emergency landing at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport after hitting a bird.

“You could tell that something was wrong and then you felt the vibrations and you could see the flames outside the window,” said passenger David Rabe.

For Rabe, it was the last thing he expected flying home: a flock of birds colliding with the Southwest plane, causing an emergency landing at BWI.

“Very frightening on the inside. You’re wondering—things go through your head, `Are we going to go down?’ This is the first thing through your mind.

McDonald’s in Japan rations fries

Category: Bizarre, strange, Weird

japanJapan – McDonald’s Holdings Co (Japan) Ltd has embarked on the emergency measure of only offering small-sized french fries to customers as a protracted labor dispute at U.S. West Coast ports has contributed to long delays in imports.

The fast-food chain said it was importing more than 1,000 tones of frozen fries by air, which began arriving last Monday and had begun routing another 1,600 tones through ports on the U.S. East Coast which should begin arriving in late January.

Those steps alone, however, are not sufficient to prevent a shortage.

“Unfortunately without this sales restriction step, we would run the danger of running out of fries at some of our stores around the end of the year or beginning of the new year,” said McDonald’s Japan spokeswoman Kokoro Toyama.  More

Students Want College To Suspend Grading Over Police Killings Of Blacks

gradesAs of Thursday evening, over 1,300 students had signed a petition drafted by College junior Kiki Acey and other students of color demanding President Krislov suspend the standard grading system in the aftermath of the high-profile cases of Michael Brown, Eric Garner and Tamir Rice.

The deaths of these three Black males — as well as the non-indictments of the white officers who killed Brown and Garner — have gained national attention as representative of the country’s historic and systemic marginalization, brutalization and dehumanization of Black and brown Americans.

The petition, which was first circulated across Facebook and via email on Tuesday, calls for the College to institute a “no-fail mercy period” that would eliminate all failing grades and make a C the lowest possible grade a student could receive.  More

The young girl was found burned alive near her vehicle in rural Mississippi. Anonymous claims that the police were ill-prepared to handle such a high-profile case; therefore, the group decided to take the case into their own hands.

After hacking into several social media accounts of local known gang members, the group was able to uncover some startling new evidence.

Man who ‘killed his wife and her sisters before eating their bodies’ is free – argued being kept in jail would ruin his business

EU Rules Mean Suspected Cannibal Walking FreelavricRomania – A court has allowed a suspected cannibal accused of killing his wife and her two sisters and then eating their bodies to walk the streets.

Convicted rapist Vasile Lavric, dubbed ‘the Women Eater’, argued it would ruin his car mechanic business if he were kept in jail ahead of his trial. 

And a court was forced to agree and release him because the bungled police investigation has already taken such a long time.

The introduction of electronic tags means people awaiting trial can now argue they deserve the right to stay at home if their case has been dragging on.

But the country cannot afford the electronic tags and so police have no means to ensure Lavric keeps to his curfew. 

Instead police have to make occasional trips to his home in Radauti, a city in north-eastern Romania, to make sure he is in.  More

That is how Michigan cops arrested Brandon Ancell, 19, and Brandon Chait, 18, for a series of larcenies Thursday in Macomb County, a Detroit suburb.

According to police, the teenagers followed the trail of a UPS truck and took packages that had been left outside residences.

The scheme, however, was sunk when a homeowner watched as Ancell ran up to the porches of two homes “and stole packages that had been left there by a UPS driver,” reported the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office.  More

Principal Jennifer Ford (picture) sent a letter home to parents on Thursday letting them know of the change.

The letter said in part: “I am writing to you today to inform you of a change in our concert series this winter. Our First through Fourth grade concert as well as our Kindergarten concert will not include a visit from Santa Claus this year.”

Robert Thompson has two kids in the school. He said the concert traditionally closed with Santa running through the aisle. He said the decision to remove Santa was based on a complaint.  More

A guy who made city’s unused toilet paper a precious gift

delongSeattle – This story begins 15 years ago, when Leon Delong retired from his cable-splicer job at Seattle City Light. Like a lot of new retirees, he instantly got restless.

At the same moment his daughter Allison Delong, a manager for downtown high-rises, was puzzling over a toilet-paper conundrum that has bedeviled prime office buildings for decades.

To make sure no white-shoe lawyer or bank executive ever draws a blank, many of Seattle’s premier office towers instruct the janitorial crews to install full, fresh rolls every night, whether the ones in use are finished or not.

“It creates a huge supply of what they call stub rolls,” Allison says. “They’re rolls with a half-inch or more of paper left on them. They were chucking them in the trash. It drove me crazy.”

So the two hatched a plan: Ask the janitors to save the stub rolls, and Leon-who-needed-something-to-do would pick them up and drive them to a food bank.  More

campNew Zealand – A couple of tourists will be walking to the restroom in future after an attempt to drive to a campground convenience in Puketi Forest went disastrously wrong.

The visitors from Wales had been staying at the Department of Conservation’s Forest Pools campground in Forest Rd, off State Highway 1 west of Okaihau, when they decided to drive to the toilets about 8am on Thursday, possibly because of heavy rain.

Okaihau Fire Chief Andrew Graham said it appeared the van went too close to the edge of a slip and tumbled into the Waipapa River.

The woman was unhurt but her male companion suffered multiple cuts and bruises. He was kept overnight at Bay of Islands Hospital for observation.  More
