Posted By Staff

Date: August 19th, 2014

Police Shooting MissouriFERGUSON, Missouri – The National Guard arrived in Ferguson but kept its distance from the streets where protesters clashed again with police, as clouds of tear gas and smoke hung over the St. Louis suburb where Michael Brown was fatally shot by a police officer.

Protesters filled the streets after nightfall Monday, and officers trying to enforce tighter restrictions at times used bullhorns to order them to disperse.

Police deployed noisemakers and armored vehicles to push demonstrators back. Officers fired tear gas and flash grenades.

Capt. Ron Johnson of the Missouri Highway Patrol, who is in charge of security in Ferguson, said bottles and Molotov cocktails were thrown from the crowd and that some officers had come under heavy gunfire.  More

Family of missing man who was legally declared dead 20 years ago forced to repay Social Security benefits

Posted By Staff

Date: August 18th, 2014

robinOhio – The government wants to recoup benefits paid to the daughters of a man who was declared legally dead and then turned up alive years later.

Donald Miller Jr. disappeared in the 1980s, and a death ruling in 1994 allowed his family to get Social Security benefits.

When the 62-year-old Miller resurfaced around 2005 – some 25 years after his disappearance – saying he had lived in other states and then returned to Ohio, the government apparently took notice.

Now the Social Security Administration know that Miller is alive, it wants his two daughters to return more than $47,000 to cover benefits they received as teenagers, plus interest.  More

natl guardMissouri Gov. Jay Nixon ordered National Guard troops to the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson early Monday after authorities used tear gas to clear the streets of protesters hours before a midnight curfew took effect for a second consecutive day, while a private autopsy on the unarmed black teen who was fatally shot by a white police officer reportedly showed six gunshot wounds, including two in the head.

As night fell in Ferguson, another peaceful protest quickly deteriorated after marchers pushed toward one end of a street and authorities — who said they were responding to reports of gunfire, looting, vandalism and protesters who hurled Molotov cocktails — pushed them back by repeatedly firing tear gas.

At least two people were wounded in shootings by civilians, he said. A Missouri Highway Patrol spokesman said that at least seven people were arrested on charges of failing to disperse.  More   Michael Brown was shot from the front, had marijuana in his system

Of course, twitter followers picked up on the incredibly moronic tweet and made sure Mr. Reilly knew about it.  Former Illinois Congressman and current radio host Joe Walsh poked fun at his “justice reporter” status and called him out for his lack of knowledge:

A Witness Conversation Unknowingly Captured at the Scene of the Ferguson Shooting is a Game-Changer

Posted By Staff

Date: August 17th, 2014

streetA previously unnoticed detail in a background conversion of a video taken minutes after the Ferguson shooting could change the course of the investigation into Mike Brown’s death.

The original video poster appears sympathetic to the narrative that Mike Brown was shot unarmed with his hands in the air. But he unknowingly picks up conversation between a man who saw the altercation and another neighbor. (Brown was running toward police officer when shot).

This corroborates an account of the event given by a friend of Officer Darren Wilson:

Well, then Michael takes off and gets to be about 35 feet away. And, Darren’s first protocol is to pursue. So, he stands up and yells, “Freeze!” Michael and his friend turn around. And Michael taunts him… And then all the sudden he just started bumrushing him. He just started coming at him full speed. And, so he just started shooting. And, he just kept coming. And, so he really thinks he was on something.”  More  BREAKING: New Video Proves Michel Brown Attacked Officer Darren Wilson (Crude Language)

Man Rescued Trying To Sail To US In Dinghy – Seasick

Posted By Staff

Date: August 17th, 2014

rescuedA man has been rescued five miles off the Dorset coast while attempting to sail to America in a 300-pound dinghy.

The 30-year-old Bulgarian national bought the 14ft vessel from Christchurch harbour on Saturday and then set off on his 3,500-mile voyage across the Atlantic.

Passing yachtsmen raised the alarm after spotting him looking seasick in choppy water off Hengistbury Head, near Bournemouth. The man, who was alone on the sailing dinghy, refused help when an RNLI lifeboat arrived and kept saying: “I am going west.”

After refusing assistance for 45 minutes, the crew dragged him on to their boat and took him to shore.

Lifeboat crewman Pete Dadds, 41, said the dinghy was taking on water, and the man would have died if he had not been rescued.  More

Seven arrested, 1 shot – protesters defying Ferguson curfew

Posted By Staff

Date: August 17th, 2014

Category: Current News

defyingMissouri – Police fired smoke and tear gas canisters early Sunday in an effort to disperse several dozen protesters who defied a curfew in a St. Louis suburb where a black teenager was fatally shot by a white police officer last week.

The Missouri Highway Patrol said that seven people were arrested and one man had been shot at the site of the protest in Ferguson, Mo. Missouri State Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson said that the shooting victim was in critical condition and had been rushed to a hospital by protesters.

Johnson said the use of tear gas was precipitated by concerns about people who’d broken into a barbecue restaurant and taken position on the roof overlooking approaching police.

Another concern involved a man flashing a handgun who appeared in the middle of the street as armored vehicles approached. Johnson says someone fired at a patrol car, but no officers were injured.  More

nascarBROOKLYN, Michigan - NASCAR added a rule Friday barring its drivers from approaching the track or moving cars after accidents, less than a week after driver Kevin Ward Jr. was struck and killed during a dirt-track race in New York.

If a car is involved in an accident and can no longer keep going – and no extenuating circumstances exist such as smoke in the cockpit or fire – the driver should not loosen any personal safety equipment until directed to do so by safety personnel or a NASCAR or track official.

After being told to exit the car, the driver should proceed to an emergency vehicle or as otherwise directed.

The rule takes effect immediately and applies to all of NASCAR’s series.  More

robbery1Missouri – Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager who was fatally shot by a police officer in a St. Louis suburb, fit the description of a strong-arm robbery suspect that police were responding to the night he was shot, the Ferguson police chief said at a Friday press conference.

Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson said that the robbery took place at a nearby convenience store. When police confronted Brown, they said a struggle ensued. Jackson went on to identify the police officer in the shooting as Darren Wilson, a six-year veteran with no disciplinary action on his record.

Jackson said Wilson, along with other officers, were called to the area after a 911 call reporting a “strong-arm robbery” at a nearby convenience store.

Police have said Brown was shot after an officer encountered him and another man on the street. They say one of the men pushed the officer into his squad car, then physically assaulted him in the vehicle and struggled with the officer over the officer’s weapon.  More   Watch video at Nutty News Videos   PHOTOS RELEASED of Suspect Michael Brown ROBBING STORE Before Shooting

Air regulators in India have set up an investigation into the “serious incident” which occurred on board a Boeing 777 last week en route to Brussels from Mumbai, the Times of India reported.

The plane dropped 5,000 feet while the captain was sleeping in what’s known as a “controlled rest,” which is permitted under aviation laws for long flights.

The co-pilot, who was meant to be in charge of the plane while the captain snoozed, claims she was busy on her iPad and didn’t notice the plane had lost altitude. However, investigators are looking into the possibility that she too had dozed off.  More

Black Rat Snake Undergoes Surgery After Eating Ceramic Egg

Posted By Staff

Date: August 14th, 2014

blackPITTSBURGH – A 5-foot, black rat snake is recovering after having surgery to remove a fake egg from its intestinal tract.

The snake was allegedly looking for eggs in a chicken coop in Seward when it accidentally ate a ceramic one instead.

People often use the fake, ceramic eggs in coops to encourage chickens to nest and lay eggs of their own.

“They asked me if I thought the snake was going to pass the egg,” wildlife rehabilitator Bree Bigelow said. “And I said no, probably not, you’ll probably want to bring it in.”

A veterinarian at the Animal Rescue League Shelter and Wildlife Center in Verona called in a specialist to perform the surgery, which is deemed to be high risk.   More
