hot-car-dad

*On Monday a judge couldn’t hit the gavel hard enough as he laid down the law and sentenced a Georgia man to life in prison for what jurors believe was an intentional act that ended up killing his young son.

36-year-old Justin Ross Harris, a web developer for Home Depot, was convicted by a jury in June of 2014 for charges that included malice murder of his 22-month-old son, Cooper. Harris claims he meant to take the boy to childcare, but says he rushed into his office and forgot the child was in the back seat of the SUV for his entire seven-hour-work day!

Investigators discovered Harris, who has a wife, had spent the day flirting with prostitutes online, and also in person with a teenage girl. Continue reading

*Folks ain’t feelin’ an administrator at Ohio State University after she posted a plea on Facebook asking for people to show compassion for the man who drove through a crowd of students on Monday and started slashing them with a butcher knife.

They believe she is showing more concern for the attacker than she is for those he attacked.

Identified as Abdul Razak Ali Artan, eleven people were hospitalized, students fled for their lives — barricading themselves in classrooms — and the man was killed within a minute by a campus police officer. Continue reading

*A woman who was chased, caught and arrested after store employees called the cops claiming she stole three beers, was so mad she decided to lose her nature while in the back of a patrol car.

Fortunately for the dog, an officer dodged cars and was nearly hit several times, before catching the animal, unharmed. Continue reading

Police Officers Buy Bike For Teen Who Walked Two Hours To Work

imrs-php

*Every time I see a picture of a white police officer with a black teen, lately, it seems one has a gun pulled on the other — or one’s on the ground dying.

As BeBe & CeCe Winans famously sang back in the day, “Love Said Not So!” 

During his routine night patrol, Officer Kirk Keffer spotted Jordan Duncan walking down quiet street in northern California.

“The street that I caught him on is really dark, and there’s no sidewalk.  And he was dressed in all black,” said Keffer, who stopped his car to question Duncan, 18.

I know.  You can almost see the kid’s black hoodie, can’t you?  You think you could write the end of this story, don’t you?   But keep reading.  Trust me.

Duncan explained that he’d just gotten off from his graveyard shift packing boxes at a nutritional supplement company, and he was just making his way home.  Typically, the seven mile commute would be easy, but it had recently become a two hour slog by foot.

“My car broke down,” Duncan explained, “so I figured I had no other way to work.  I didn’t want to burden others by asking for a ride.”

Officer Keffer was astounded by the story, and Duncan’s pending uphill walk home.

“So I said, ‘If you don’t mind, hold on a second.’ I went over to my front seat, cleared it out, and asked him if I could give him a ride home. He’s like, ‘You can do that?’ I said, ‘Yeah, I can do that.'”

Warms your heart, doesn’t it, especially in our current political and social climate?  A white cop asking a black kid if he can help him.

And it gets better… Continue reading

Toddler Survives Attempted Hanging By Daycare Provider (Watch)

*I have a luxury home with a large fenced yard just steps away from the Lake of the Isles that has been remodeled for the safety of your child. This is how Nataliia Karia, 42, promotes Uptown Daycare, which she runs in Minneapolis, on her Facebook page. The same center where she attempted to hang a 16-month-old child.

Thankfully, the child, who was found dangling, was spared by a parent who had come to drop her own child off.

Karia was nowhere to be found. She had fled in her gold minivan.

WTF. WTF. WTF!!!! Have people totally lost their freakin’ minds? 

The parent called 911, and not long after, police started receiving calls about a woman driving haphazardly, and hitting people before she tried to commit suicide by jumping off an overpass.

Police, who eventually caught up with Karia after she had injured two people — a pedestrian standing on the corner and a bicyclist — restrained her and she was unable to jump.

No one knows what set this woman off. Continue reading

Adopted Siblings Say Parents Kicked Them Out After ‘Extreme Makeover’ Win (Watch)

The Friday family in happier times

*Oh man. If this is true, it is what you would call a low-down, dirty, shame. No ifs, ands, or buts, about it. Do you remember the hit show, ‘Extreme Makeover Home Edition?’ I never missed it. It was one of my favorite shows. It aired for nine seasons and ended in December 2012. But during its heydey, host Ty Pennington led a group of designers who sought out one deserving family to get their home renovated over a one week period. The team worked like crazy to get the task completed in time, and never failed to deliver. And they looked so genuinely happy for the winning family.

Well one featured family, the Friday’s, had seven children in all, including 5 newly adopted siblings. And when you watch the video (scroll down) you will see how the loving parents were on screen telling the renovation team how they had adopted these children, who were biological siblings, but needed help so badly. Forward five years, at least two of the siblings are grown, and they say that after the cameras stopped rolling, their adoptive parents kicked them, and eventually the others, to the curb.

Now an investigation has ensued.

What made the show so awesome was the entire community would come out at the end; with all kinds of congratulatory signs, as the family — who was generally sent to a place like Disneyland (all expenses paid) while the renovations were being done, would pull up behind a HUGE bus that blocked the newly renovated home and the crowd would chant, “Move that bus!” And once the bus was removed, jaws would drop at the incredible, amazing structure that stood before them.

The family (along with the designers) and the cameras would then rush into the new dwelling, and room by room, we would get to witness their glee.

The Friday’s were featured on the show in 2011. And Devonda and James Friday are seen on camera, in a most pitiful voice saying, “We desperately need you,” to come help our family.” Continue reading
