dt_common_streams_StreamServerA Chicago man who claimed he was “tax exempt” and didn’t have to pay the 22-cent sales tax on his $1.79 two-liter of Pepsi allegedly pulled a .22 caliber submachine gun to avoid forking over the extra cash at a convenience store on Saturday.

Nahshon Shelton was charged with five counts, including felony unlawful use of a weapon, aggravated assault and having an invalid FOID card, and is currently being held without bail.

“I’m going to shoot you in the head three times,” the 36-year-old allegedly said during the incident. “Right now I’m going to smoke your ass. You’re not listening, I’m killing everyone in here.”

After he was arrested, Shelton allegedly told police, “[This] is my neighborhood, I’m tax exempt! Man, you know what, I’ll keep it real. I had to put them in their place.”

According to Assistant State Attorney Claire Savaglio, the entire incident was captured on the store’s surveillance cameras.

A Pennsylvania high school football coach could be headed to jail after he shoved a student who allegedly farted in his face.

article-2605295-1D21320200000578-154_634x429Michael Smith, 45, also a teacher at Juniata Valley High School in Alexandria, just southwest of State College, was suspended following the March 25 incident. He has been charged with harassment and criminal mischief.

State police say he shoved the student so hard into the wall, the force broke a thermostat.

The thermostat cost $212 and the student was left with soreness in his left shoulder, according to Pennlive.com.

Superintendent David Christopher says, ‘It’s a really difficult situation here. You’ve got a longtime teacher who’s accused of something pretty serious,’ Superintendent David Christopher told the AP.

Smith, however, has his backers. More than 300 people have signed an outline petition supporting him.

‘I guess the elephant in the room is, “What would you do if a kid (passed gas) in your face?”‘ wrote Jim Payne, a soft ball coach a local school Bellwood-Antis.

Megan Huntsman Accused Of Using Garage To Store Her Murdered Babies

0

Megan-Huntsman-125x188A 39-year-old woman was arrested Saturday after seven bodies of dead infants were discovered in a Pleasant Grove home, and officials said they believe that, over a 10-year period, she gave birth to six of the children then killed them.

Pleasant Grove Police responded to the home at 530 E. 200 North after residents who were cleaning out a garage found what they believed to be a dead infant in a container.

Capt. Michael Roberts, Pleasant Grove PD, said the residents found “a suspicious package with a pungent smell, and they opened the package partially and found what they believed to be a deceased infant in the box and they called police.”

When they arrived, police found the infant to be at full term, according to a press release from the Pleasant Grove Police Department.

Roberts said a search warrant was obtained and “subsequently six more bodies of infants were found in separate containers, cardboard boxes.”

According to the press release, “During the course of the investigation information was obtained that; over a 10 year period a 39 year old female gave birth to the infants and then killed them.”

According to a probable cause statement released Monday morning, Huntsman admitted to strangling or suffocating the babies immediately after they were born.

Megan Huntsman was booked into the Utah County Jail and faces six counts of murder. Police officials later told FOX 13 News that there are six charges because investigators believe one of the seven was a stillborn child.

On Monday morning, a judge set Huntsman’s bail at $1 million for each count of murder, for a total of $6 million.

FOX 13 News’ Carly Figueroa spoke with neighbors and officials, see the video above for those interviews.

Huntsman had not lived in the home since 2011. Police said Huntsman had shared the home with her husband, a Mr. West, and they had lived there for some time. The man served nine years in federal prison on drug distribution related charges. Police told FOX 13 News the couple was estranged.

The home has two separate residences. The bodies were found in the upper residence with its attached garage, and that residence had not been lived in since 2011 when Huntsman left.

Police said Huntsman told them West was the father of the infants, and police said they believe her. They said they believe the infants were born and killed between 1996 and 2006 while West was not imprisoned. Police said West is not considered a suspect in the infants’ death.

West was among those who found the first infant, and Roberts said, “there’s a strong possibility,” the man opened the box to find his own child dead inside.

Police said the home was owned by West’s parents, who had overseen the home during the time Huntsman lived there while West was in prison.

West returned Saturday, which is when he started to clear out the home. That is when he and those helping him found a box that smelled bad and appeared to contain a dead infant.

Police said during the time Megan Huntsman was living at the home she was there with three children of hers and West’s. Those children are now 13, 18 and 20.

Neighbor Kathie Hawker said Huntsman had moved out of the home after what they called a struggle with substance abuse.

“Yeah, we were worried about her because we could see that she was not looking in good health, and we were worried about the children that lived there with her, her three daughters lived there,” Hawker said.

Kathie’s husband, Aaron Hawker, said it is shocking to learn Huntsman was allegedly pregnant so many times.

He said: “She always looked kind of slim, I mean, to have this many babies full term, it’s like… Where were they?”

Police said several warrants have been issued in the case, including a search warrant for Huntsman’s West Valley City home.

Embarrassing: Trying to rob a hair salon. Really Embarrassing: Have the receptionist laugh in your face. Ultimate embarrassment: Having to call your mom to come pick you up

0

ReceptionistOn the afternoon of April 10, 2014, 29-year-old Ryan Trembly entered Bubbles Hair Salon on a mission. It wasn’t give him a style that would turn heads and attract a new mate, though. Ryan was actually planning to rob the place.

He walked up to the receptionist, put his hand under his under shirt, and demanded that she give him the money in the register. Unfortunately for him, the young lady fooled behind the counter was not fooled by his finger gun. Instead, she simply laughed in his face,

The receptionist also pointed out to reporters (and hopefully not to him) how stupid it was to rob a hair salon since a bank was right next door…although to Ryan’s credit, he may have been correctly setting the bar low with regards to his criminal abilities.

After having completely failed at the robbery (and being completely emasculated), Ryan decided that now was the best time to spit some game, attempting to make small talk with the receptionist before leaving the salon.

Amazon jungle villagers get revenge on thieves by lashing them to tree crawling with deadly ants

0

imagesVillagers in the Amazon jungle exacted revenge on two motorbike thieves by lashing them to a tree swarming with deadly ants for THREE DAYS.

Authorities say the two thieves, aged 18 and 19, nearly died after being stung by the poisonous fire ants in the attack in Ayopaya, western Bolivia.

Dr Roberto Paz, of Bolivia’s Cochabamba hospital, said one was in intensive care while the other needed dialysis for kidney failure.

A sister of one of the men – who are accused of stealing three motorbikes – said that villagers had held them for nearly three days.

They were only freed on Saturday when relatives paid a ransom of around £2,200 – nearly four times Bolivia’s average annual wage.

Villagers had demanded the payment as compensation for the loss of the motorbikes.

The sister said that the men would have died if her relatives had not paid the ransom.

The venomous ants – whose scientific name is pseudomyrmex triplarinus – live on the triplaris tree, which grows throughout Central and South America.

Their poison can be deadly but is used in small doses as a traditional cure for arthritis.

17-year-old Irish boy suffers heart attack after friend squeezes his testicles

0

An Irish schoolboy had a heart attack after his testicles were squeezed in a prank that went horribly wrong.

The 17-year-old has been placed in a medically induced coma, following the incident in a suburb of Dublin.

The pupil was heading back into school after a lunch break and joking around with a group of boys.

According to the Irish Mirror, one of his friends then “jerked his scrotum,” causing the emergency.

A teacher and one of the group performed CPR at the scene while waiting for the emergency services to arrive.

A source close to the boy’s family said they believe it wasn’t a “savage attack” or carried out in a “malicious way.”

The teenager is said to be in a stable condition.

Man yells ‘Heil Hitler’ after fatally shooting 3 at Jewish centers

0

25235053_BG5A white supremacist yelled, “Heil Hitler,” after he was taken into custody in connection with the Passover Eve fatal shooting of three at two Jewish-related sites in the Kansas City area.

A 14-year-old boy and his grandfather were killed outside the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City. They were apparently inside a car. A female was killed a few minutes later in the parking lot at Village Shalom, an assisted living facility.

The suspect shot at two other people, but the bullets did not hit them, said Overland Park police Chief John Douglass.

A dozen or more shots may have been fired based on evidence at the scenes.

The victims apparently did not know their killer, Douglass said.

Glenn Frazier Cross, 73, was arrested at 1:28 p.m. He is being held by Overland Park police on multiple charges including premeditated first-degree murder, according to online jail records.

Cross, who also goes by Glenn Miller, is a known white supremacist and known for his anti-Semitic thoughts. He is a former grand dragon of the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. He is a perennial candidate for office, including running in 2006 against then-U.S. Rep. Roy Blunt, R-MO. He ran against Blunt in 2010 when Blunt was elected to the Senate.

Cross made headlines in the 2010 campaign for his racist and anti-Semitic campaign ads. Federal law required broadcast stations to air the ads even though they did not want to put such vile rantings on their airwaves.

Miller quit high school as a senior to join the U.S. Army. In 1979, he retired from the Army as a master sergeant after 20 years of active duty, including two tours in Vietnam and 13 years as a member of the elite Green Berets.

Douglass said the suspect wasn’t known to Overland Park authorities before Sunday.

The suspect’s vehicle had Missouri plates.

Douglass also wouldn’t say whether the shootings were anti-Semitic hate crimes. He said authorities are evaluating comments that the suspect made after he was arrested.

It is a joint federal-state investigation with the offices of U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom and Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe involved.

The 14-year-old boy, Reat Underwood, was a freshman at Blue Valley High School. His grandfather, Dr. William Lewis Corporon, had moved to the Kansas City area a decade ago to be closer to his grandchildren.

The two attended the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood. Prayers were held during the church’s evening Palm Sunday service.

The woman who lost her son and her father in a matter of moments was stoic as she thanked everyone for their support. Others sobbed as she described seeing the two prone bloody bodies and knowing immediately that her beloved father and her son were now in heaven together.

The Rev. Adam Hamilton said he met with the family Sunday and at their urging they went ahead with the Palm Sunday evening church services. He will again minister to the family on Sunday during their grief.

Reat was rushed to Overland Park Regional Medical Center for surgery but died from his injuries.

Corporon, who was a family doctor, leaves behind a wife of 49 years. Reat was an Eagle Scout who loved camping and hunting with his grandfather, father and brother, the family said.

Cross was arrested at the Valley Park Elementary School, which is a mile away from Village Shalom. The suspect appeared to yell “Heil Hitler” as he was being led away in handcuffs by Overland Park police.

The suspect made “several statements” when he was put into the back of a police patrol car, Douglass acknowledged.

“We are sifting through and vetting those for accuracy, No. 1, and No. 2, we’re looking at them for their evidentiary value,” the police chief said. “It is too early to tell you what he may or may not have said. We’re trying to determine that at this time.”

Douglass said Sunday evening that it is being investigated as a hate crime but said it’s too soon to know whether it’s a hate crime or not.

“We know it was a vicious act of violence, and we know obviously it was at two Jewish facilities,” he said. “So one might make that assumption, but we’re going to have to know more about it before we’ll label it.”

The suspect used a shotgun in the fatal shootings, Douglass said. The suspect may have also used a handgun in firing the shots that didn’t strike the two. In addition, Douglass said the suspect may have had an assault rifle.

Douglass said the first 911 call about the JCC shooting came at 1:03 p.m. This happened outside the Lewis and Shirley White Theatre, which was packed for performance-related events.

Teens were auditioning for KC SuperStar and parents were frantically trying to get to their children.

In addition, a performance of To Kill a Mockingbird was underway when the shots rang out at the theater. The back door to the theater suffered damage that may have been from gunshots.

Jenessa Watkins, a dance instructor, said she was with a group of children when they were rushed to the theater. She said when she learned about the shootings that she tried to stay composed, but she couldn’t help but think of the 2012 massacre at a Connecticut elementary school.

“I kind of couldn’t help but think about Sandy Hook, looking around at these young children,” she said. “I was really scared. … People were calling their loved ones, and I thought I was fine and under control, but when I called my mom and she started crying, I started crying.”

A second shooting was reported a few minutes later at Village Shalom, which is an assisted living center at 5500 W. 123rd St.

Brian Brookbank was running errands when he saw chest compressions being performed on the injured person.

“We saw a large quantity of blood flowing down the slope of the parking lot,” Brookbank said. “We then went around the corner and saw a white male … being handcuffed with multiple assault rifles and a couple of handguns pointed at him. He was laying in the grass and did not appear to be resisting.”

Worried relatives of residents told KCTV5 that Village Shalom was placed on lockdown.

Phyllis Cantor, who is undergoing rehabilitation at Village Shalom, said she heard the sound of sirens. She said many police officers are at the scene and their focus appeared to be on a white car in the parking lot.

Sophia Porter was at the Jewish Community Center for the SuperStar auditions. She said contestants helped lighten the mood by performing as they were forced to stay holed up inside a safe area.

“The sense of community in that room,” Porter said. “I felt very comforted by the presence of the other people and by the performances that were going on.”

The Jewish Community Center will be closed on Monday. The JCCC said that “our hearts go out to all those affected and touched” by the tragedy.

“Our hearts go out to the families who have suffered loss on this tragic day. Our heartfelt gratitude as well to all those in Kansas City and around the world who have expressed sympathy, concern and support,” the JCC said in its statement. “Everyone participating in JCC programming has been released to their homes.”

In a statement, Blue Valley School District’s Tom Trigg said Reat sang the national anthem earlier this year at an educational breakfast.

“His talents were on full display that morning. I found Reat to be an engaging and exceptional young man,” he said. “Our hearts go out to the families who are dealing with this senseless tragedy.”

Trigg said other Blue Valley students were at the Jewish Community Center. Classes were already scheduled to be off Monday, but counselors will be at the school to speak with grieving students.

“As a community, we will come together to support each other. We encourage you to be especially sensitive and offer supports to your child during this time,” Trigg said. “We are a strong community and will do everything possible to support each other and our students. Our thoughts and prayers are with all families who have been impacted by this tragedy.”

Temple Israel and St. Thomas the Apostle Episcopal Church held a vigil at 8 p.m. Sunday. About 200 people came together in their grief and devastation. Christian pastors and Jewish rabbis stood shoulder to shoulder in offering words of comfort.

Police determine that the missing man’s body has been 40ft up a tree at a golf course for three years

0

5989126-largeA missing Lithuanian’s body remained undiscovered 40ft up a tree at a golf club in Dorset with golfers playing nearby for three years, it was revealed yesterday.

It was only when a dog being walked at Meyrick Park golf club emerged from a bush with a human arm that police descended on the course near Bournemouth last Monday.

More remains were found that day, and the following day, a spot 40ft up in the branches was located as the place where the man died.

Incredibly, police at the scene were then approached by a man who lived near the golf course who told police he had found bones at the spot last year, but took them home and did not inform anyone or call police.

Now, the body has been identified as that of Jurij Sliachtecov, a 21-year-old Lithuanian, who was first reported missing in early May 2011.

Mr Sliachtecov first went missing the previous month, and initially, police and his friends believed he had returned to his native Lithuania as he had taken his passport. He was last seen on an evening out with friends in Bournemouth in late April 2011.

The long-running appeal for information about his whereabouts involved a feature on the Lithuanian version of TV programme Crimewatch, and extensive appeals in eastern Europe.

But eventually police in Dorset concluded that he had not returned home, with border officials and his family confirming they had not seen him or he had not entered the country.

Then the gruesome discovery was made last week, and police gradually realised the spot in a copse on the golf course was where Mr Sliachtecov had been all along.

A cause of death has not yet been established for the 21-year-old, and while his identification has not yet formally been made, a spokesman for Dorset police said they believed the body was that of the missing Lithuanian. His family and the Dorset coroner have been informed and an inquest is expected to open and adjourn later this week.

Police said they do not believe the cause of death to be suspicious at this stage. The local man, who is in his 40s, is being spoken to by police. He arrived at the site on Tuesday, a day after the first remains were found, with two bones wrapped in a clear plastic bag and told police he found them ‘months ago’ in the same area.

Rare condition means woman has smelled of FISH and ROTTEN EGGS for 14 years – and there’s no cure

0

Ellie-James-3378528When Ellie James opened her Secret Santa present, she burst into tears.

It was yet another bar of soap.

She had received so many over the years – along with copious bottles of perfume and body spray.

Just as with all the other “gifts”, she knew it hadn’t been chosen as a thoughtful gesture but as a hint – that she was smelly.

When she opened her present, her colleagues roared with laughter and Ellie fled the office in embarrassment.

Sadly she has had to endure similar humiliations for 14 years because she suffers from a bizarre medical disorder which makes her smell of fish. It can also make her reek of rotten eggs.

Today Ellie, 44, bravely reveals how she is just one of a handful of Brits to be diagnosed with Trimethylaminuria (TMAU).

Also known as fish-odour syndrome, it has had a ­devastating impact on her life.

Bullies have dubbed her Smelly Ellie and have even posted body spray through her letterbox.

She was first struck down with the condition at the age of 30. Her body is unable to cope with certain foods – meat, dairy, coffee and fish – and releases ­trimethylamine, which creates a putrid odour.

But even when she avoids those foods there are days she is unable to stop the smell. It leads to her being abused in the street and on public transport.

At her lowest point she was taking a bath five times a day.

Company director Ellie, from Abingdon, Oxfordshire, explained how she became aware of her condition: “At first I didn’t ­understand what was wrong. I’d always had impeccable hygiene.

“The smell was a complete mystery. I wondered if my cat had brought in a mouse and left it to rot.

“But I slowly realised it was me when strangers began to stare at me while holding their noses. I heard people whispering about me in the office.

“I would come home from work every night and cry. Soon people were showering me with gifts of perfume. At Christmas I’d get soap – it was completely humiliating.

“Once a driver actually installed an air freshener on the bus I use and a passenger said it was my fault. It was soul-destroying.

“It was a real struggle getting out of bed in the morning.”

Alarmingly, Ellie got so desperate she started to scrub her skin with kitchen detergent until it was red raw. “I was at my wit’s end,” she said.

It took doctors seven years to diagnose the condition after she first plucked up courage to visit her GP in 2005.

“The doctor started to lecture me on personal hygiene and told me how to wash,” she said.

She was so mortified she waited a whole year before seeing another doctor.

But together they researched the possible causes and in 2007 she came across an online forum for people with TMAU.

“Although it was hard to swallow I felt relief as I’d finally found the answers I’d been looking for,” she said. She was referred to an ­endocrinologist – an expert on hormones – who put her on antibiotics and suggested a diet plan.

She said: “I began to wash with a special pH-balanced soap after I found out washing excessively with normal soap made the smell even worse.

“There is no cure but making these changes helps.”

Brave Ellie added: “Now when someone holds their nose I take them aside and explain I have a medical condition. I hope my story will help educate those who point fingers and encourage other sufferers to find the strength to get help.”

Now she is beginning to get her confidence back and has even found love with boyfriend Dan Molston, 50.

They first met in 2006 through mutual friends and bonded over an interest in cycling. Romance developed earlier this year.

Loyal Dan said: “Ellie is a lovely person and that’s all that matters.”

What is TMAU?

The condition is a metabolic disorder in which the body loses the ability to properly break down the trimethylamine found in certain foods.

Trimethylamine then builds up and is released in the sufferer’s sweat, urine, and breath, giving off a strong fishy odour.

Women are more likely to develop the condition than men, possibly because female sex hormones aggravate the symptoms.

It can result in depression and other psychological problems. It is so rare that only a handful of people have been diagnosed in the UK.

Child Bride, Wasilu Umar, Poisons Groom And His Friends

0

A 14-year-old girl is in police custody after poisoning her 35-year-old husband.

Last week, in an arranged marriage, Wasilu Umar was forced to marry Umaru Sani by her father.  To celebrate their marriage, Umaru invited a dozen of his friends over. That is when Wasilu decided to slip rat poison into a rice dish.
Umaru died the same day along with friends Nasiru Mohammed and Alhassan Alhassan. Another female victim, Indo Ibrahim, died at the hospital while receiving treatment.

Wasilu is cooperating with the police, and will likely be charged for culpable homicide. She admitted that she purchased the poison from a local market with the intent of killing her husband.

‘The suspect confessed to committing the crime and said she did it because she was forced to marry a man she did not love,” said assistant superintendent Musa Magaji Majia.

Child marriage is still very common throughout Nigeria, especially in the North, where there is a large, poor, Muslim population. This is especially true in times of drought, numbers increase in times of drought because a bride price is paid and it means one less mouth to feed.

According to the U.N. children’s agency, Fifty percent of Nigerian girls living in rural areas are married before they turn 18, according to the U.N. children’s agency. Child brides suffer difficult pregnancies and can often die in childbirth, the leading cause of death worldwide for girls aged 15 to 19.

They are also much more likely to contract AIDS and be subjected to domestic violence, according to the International Center for Research on Women.

The Nigerian government is attempting to curtail child marriages. According to the BBC, Islamic police are trying to stop parents from forcing children into marriages against their will and the father could be charged as well.
