*A deputy in Florida resigned on Wednesday after he learned that surveillance footage had caught him burglarizing the home of an old man on the day he died.
Come to find out, the cop, later revealed as an addict, stole the man’s prescription meds.
The police had been alerted to the home of the old man by his son after a power outage, brought on by Hurricane Irma, hit.
According to Good Morning America, on Sept. 12, around 9:22 a.m. — two days after Irma made landfall — officers with the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office were called to the home of 85-year-old Moe Rosoff, who chose to stay in his home during the fierce storm.
After the storm subsided Jay Rosoff told the Florida police dept the cameras at his dads home did not detect any movement, and he requested a welfare check. Upon arrival the officers found the elder lying on the floor and had him taken to the hospital where he died a few days later.

She scratched 10 blocks, each at $1,000.
?I thought maybe I was looking at it wrong so I had my oldest daughter look at it,? Hatfield said. ?She started screaming and we all started screaming.? Continue reading →
*”When love goes into action, it preferences no color of skin, no ethnicity, no religious beliefs, no sexual preferences, and no political persuasions. It just loves,” said Stevie Wonder, who joined a roster of celebrities volunteering their time to help raise money for those impacted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
Wonder sang ‘Lean On Me’ at the hour long benefit named ‘Hand in Hand’ which was broadcast on four networks including iHeart Radio and ABC.
