dumpedChina – Gorging on comfort food is pretty much a given when dealing with a breakup, but one woman decided to take her heartbreak public by camping out at a local KFC for seven days.

After being dumped by her boyfriend, Tan Shen says she was walking the city feeling depressed when she decided to stop into a KFC outlet in a train station in Chengdu China, reports Metro UK.

“I hadn’t planned on staying there long, I just wanted some chicken wings.  But once I got in there and started eating I decided I needed time to think,” Shen said.  “I didn’t want to go back to my apartment because it was full of memories of him. So I stayed.”  More

comaLONDON – He might have got away with it if it hadn’t been for his supermarket loyalty card.

A British fraudster who pretended to be quadriplegic and sometimes comatose for two years to avoid prosecution has been convicted after police caught him on camera driving and strolling around supermarkets.

Alan Knight of Swansea, Wales, stole more than 40,000 pounds ($64,000) from the bank account of an elderly neighbor with Alzheimer’s disease, prosecutors said.

When police began investigating, the 47-year-old Knight claimed to be quadriplegic and so sick he sometimes fell into a coma. He checked himself into a hospital to avoid court appearances, saying he was having seizures.  More

Autopsy finds Michael Brown shot at close range, not running from cop

Posted By Staff

Date: October 22nd, 2014

Category: Crime

dontMissouri – The 18-year-old black man whose fatal shooting by a white police officer in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson in August touched off weeks of racially-charged rioting, had marijuana in his system, was initially shot at close range and does not appear to have been killed while running away, according to experts who reviewed the official autopsy and toxicology report.

The documents, obtained by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and analyzed by two experts not directly involved in the case, appears to contradict witness accounts that claimed Brown was running away from Police Officer Darren Wilson, 28, when he was killed on Aug. 9.

The new information comes on the heels of reports that Wilson told authorities Brown had reached inside Wilson’s police SUV and struggled for his gun, resulting in Wilson firing twice, hitting Brown once in the hand. Moments later and outside of the vehicle, Wilson fired the fatal bullets that sparked a national controversy.  More

NYC Board of Elections: 850 people officially over 164 years old

Posted By Staff

Date: October 22nd, 2014

voteNew York – A single Bronx voter listed in official records as being 164 years old led Board of Elections officials to review their files — where they turned up another 849 New Yorkers who were supposedly alive when Abe Lincoln was president.

The stunning discovery came after The Post reported last week that the birth date of Luz Pabellon, a spry 73-year-old who has been living and voting in The Bronx since the 1970s, was recorded as Jan. 1, 1850.

This week, a search of the records in all five boroughs found 849 more voters with the same wacky birth date.

Board officials chalked up the implausible age snafu to previous practices that allowed residents not to provide their exact birthdays when registering to vote.  More

Nanny state wants lessons in brushing teeth at school

Posted By Staff

Date: October 22nd, 2014

brushUK – Schools must teach children to brush their teeth during breaks from lessons to halt shocking levels of decay, the health watchdog has said.

It blames parents’ bad habits and sugar-laden diets including fruit juice for rotting the teeth of thousands of youngsters.

Senior dentists say the problem is so severe that children as young as three are having all 20 milk teeth extracted because they have all decayed.

Now, in guidance issued today, the watchdog NICE is instructing staff at primary schools and nurseries to hold supervised brushing sessions at least once a day.  More

Police told our sister station in Mankato that 24-year-old Riley Swearingen put his pointer finger in an officer’s ear while waiting in line for a bus early Saturday morning.

Since it involved bodily fluids, police say it rises to the level of felony assault.

Prosecutors say his blood alcohol content was 0.18 at the time of the incident.

“We have an assault of improper touching from one person to another without consent occur, which leads to the credibility of assault,” said Cmdr. Jeremy Clifton.  More

Darren VannDarren Vann has a history of run-ins with police across the country going back 20 years.

It’s a record that spans four states, escalating from speeding tickets to sexual assaults. Somewhere along the line, police say the 43-year-old Vann became a serial killer.

His life is now under a microscope, with authorities saying his killing spree could go well beyond the bodies of Anith Jones, Afrikka Hardy and five other women he has led them to.

Vann’s run-ins with police go back as far as 20 years, starting in 1993, with tickets for speeding and driving without a license in North Carolina,  and in Calumet City, he pleaded guilty to aggravated fleeing from police.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported Monday that Vann tried to set himself and his then-girlfriend on fire in April 2004.  More

Former Police Chief Speaks on Latest Michael Brown Shooting Information

Posted By Staff

Date: October 21st, 2014

Category: Crime

hands upFERGUSON, Missouri – Information about the Michael Brown fatal police shooting is beginning to leak out, and former St. Louis County Police Chief Tim Fitch says it’s no accident the feds are allowing the information.

Fitch says he thinks the feds recognize that it’s “probably very unlikely” that there’s going to be charges against Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

“There was a struggle over the weapon. Law enforcement, we know that about half the officers killed every year with firearms are killed with their own,” he says.

“If Michael Brown was truly turned around and basically charging the officer, he already went for round one fighting over his handgun. Are you going to go for round two and take the chance of losing it this time?” Fitch asks. “I think that would be a more logical explanation as to why Officer Wilson would have discharged his firearm at Michael Brown.”  More

Viral NYPD Racial Profiling Video Was Staged

muslimNew York – In a cynical and duplicitous attempt to capitalize on New York City’s documented racial profiling problems, a pair of bloggers have created a video purporting to show an NYPD officer stopping and frisking a pair of Muslim men for the crime of wearing traditional Islamic garments.

But the viral video is a sham, a staged production aimed to go viral and pile up views and YouTube channel subscriptions for its young creators, Brooklynites Adam Saleh and Sheikh Akbar, who get a piece of the revenue generated by ads that run before their videos play.

While most of the pair’s videos involve pranks, sidewalk attempts at comedy and social commentary, or “Muslim-related stuff,” their latest clip seeks to latch onto an issue that has troubled many New Yorkers and tainted the NYPD.  More

Researchers at the University of California, San Francisco used a sample of 5300 healthy adults. Dr. Elissa Epel worked on the study for 5 years.

“We think we can get away with drinking lots of soda as long as we are not gaining weight, but this suggests that there is an invisible pathway that leads to accelerated aging, regardless of weight,” said Dr. Epel.

Epel’s team discovered that in people who drank more sugar-sweetened beverages, the ends of their chromosomes, known as telomeres, were shorter.  More

Darren Deon VannIndiana – Police in northwest Indiana identified the suspected serial killer believed to have murdered seven women, and warned at a news conference that the body count could rise.

The man accused of killing a woman Friday at a Hammond, Ind., Motel 6, and then leading authorities to a string of dead bodies dumped in abandoned homes in nearby Gary, was identified as Darren Deon Vann, 43, of Gary.

Officials said he is a convicted sex offender who served time in Texas for sexual assault and may have been responsible for two murders in the mid-1990s.

So far, he has only been charged with the murder of Afrika Hardy, 19, who police said was a prostitute found strangled in the motel Friday evening. But authorities said more charges are certain, and more bodies are possible.  More

dumbChina – Chinese state media has urged its citizens to think carefully when choosing an English name, so that don’t they pick one with an unfortunate meaning.

But CCTV says people should avoid fictional characters, names with the potential for sexual innuendo, or random words like Dragon, Fish or Lawyer, which could come back and haunt you “if you want a call back from that serious law firm in America”.

There’s also a lengthy warning about names with sexual connotations, especially when used in conjunction with Dong or Wang so avoid anything like ‘Bunny Wang’ at all times,” the website says.  More
