Update: Freeze says Walter Scott was a "father figure" to Ole Miss DL Fadol Brown, not his stepfather http://www.clarionledger.com/story/kellenberger/2015/04/08/ole-miss-fadol-brown-walter-scott-stepfather/25457075/

Quote
OXFORD- Walter Scott, the man shot and killed by a South Carolina police officer last weekend, was a father figure to an Ole Miss football player.

Fadol Brown said on Twitter late Tuesday night — the day the officer, Michael T. Slager, was charged with murder — that Scott "was my step dad." Ole Miss later clarified, noting that Scott was in a relationship with the mother of Brown's longtime girlfriend and had served in a parental-like role for Brown "for a number of years."

After 73 years of marriage, Kentucky couple die within minutes of each other

Quote
A man and wife for 73 years, Lillian Karr Wilson William E. "Wild Bill" Wilson, both Alzheimer’s patients died within minutes of each other at separate nursing homes in central Kentucky.

 When the subject of death came up, Lillian Karr Wilson would say, "I'm not going till Bill goes."

Her words came true Tuesday, when she died at a Lexington nursing home minutes after her husband of 73 years, William "Wild Bill" Wilson, died at Thomson-Hood Veterans Center in Wilmore.

He was 93 and had lived at the veterans nursing home for five years. She was 89 and had been at Richmond Place for more than two years. Both were Alzheimer's patients, said son Doug Wilson of Lexington...

n his later years, Bill Wilson was called "Wild Bill" at Thomson-Hood, where he would sometimes re-enact his radio show in the cafeteria.

On Sunday, when Doug Wilson, 66, visited his father at Thomson-Hood. Bill Wilson was wearing oxygen mask and "barely hanging on," his son said.

"I wanted to talk to him, and I got down there in his face and held his arm, and he squeezed my hand a little bit," Doug Wilson said. "I just told him, 'This is Wild Bill Wilson, your red-headed, freckle-faced, snaggle-toothed, snuff-dipping buddy.' And underneath the mask there, he grinned real big. He heard it. I was glad of that."

The end came at 3:52 a.m. Tuesday, when the phone rang and Thomson-Hood informed Doug Wilson that his father had died.

"Five minutes later, at 3:57 a.m., I got a call from Richmond Place: 'Doug, I'm sorry to tell you, your mother has passed.'"

When Doug called Thomson-Hood to tell them that his mother had died, "the nurse said, 'Oh, my God, that's like The Notebook,'" referring to the popular novel and movie about a couple dealing with Alzheimer's who die together in their sleep.

TSA agent - fired after recording woman in Nashville airport bathroom - sentenced to jail, treatment http://tnne.ws/1ygHcBa  via @tennessean

Quote
A former Nashville TSA agent who became obsessed with a woman — taking video of her in an airport bathroom and breaking into her house five times — was sentenced Thursday to six months in jail.

Criminal Court Judge Randall Wyatt stressed, in handing down the sentence, that 33-year-old Daniel Boykin should continue mental health treatment after his release from jail. The sentence includes more than 5 years of probation with strict supervision and GPS monitoring for Boykin. Boykin will begin the jail term Monday.

Authorities said Boykin had 92 videos of the victim — 29 taken from a bathroom inside Nashville International Airport — and 1,527 photographs of the woman.

"My biggest disappointment in terms of justice was that under current law, (Boykin) doesn't have to register as a sex offender," Vallee read from the statement. "Because my main motivation for justice is reducing the possibility that he will ever do this again to anyone else."

Man stole $170K from churches to fuel cocaine addiction http://tnne.ws/1Fyq2i0  via @tennessean #theft #crime #williamson #nashville

Quote
A Nashville man who stole about $170,000 in checks from church mailboxes to fund his cocaine addiction was sentenced Monday to three years and nine months in federal prison.

Federal judge William J. Haynes handed down the sentence, to be followed by three years of parole, for Kenneth J. Stopkotte, 49. Stopkotte was already serving a four-year sentence for stealing checks from a church in Williamson County, officials said.

David Rivera, U.S. attorney for the middle district of Tennessee, said Stopkotte also was ordered to repay nearly $170,000 he stole.

In a letter to the judge, Stopkotte said he stole the money to fuel a cocaine addiction after he lost his job and family. Twelve people wrote letters to the judge in support of Stopkotte. Many asked for a lenient sentence for the man they said had good character.

“I began to commit criminal offenses to support my habits and the mounting financial debt that came along with it,” he wrote. He wrote that he was humiliated about stealing from the churches.

“Quite frankly, I’m thankful I was arrested and my drug and alcohol usage was brought to an immediate halt,” he wrote.

In a plea agreement, Stopkotte admitted to stealing the money between August 2012 and February 2013 and depositing it into bank accounts he controlled at five banks or credit unions. He also laundered about $48,000 by nine wire transfers to the Federal Bank of the Middle East in Cyprus.

Stopkotte pleaded guilty in September to charges of bank larceny, access device fraud and money laundering.

In the Williamson County case, Stopkotte made about 170 deposits from checks payable to 15 churches in Brentwood, Nashville, Franklin, Bellevue and Murfreesboro, according to court records.

Stopkotte failed to show up for a sentencing in that case in April 2013, and authorities later found him in Mexico.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Portland man caught a guy trying to break into his car. He recorded it on video, called 911 and chased the suspect until officers arrived -- but the real story is why police had to let the suspect go and are now trying to find him again.

It hasn't been the best week for Rock Wright. The UK fan who inked a perfect season tattoo a bit too soon has to wear the public embarrassment of covering it up. He turned his tattoo that once said 40-0 into an homage recognizing UK's 2012 season by changing the numbers to 38-2 for the school's last NCAA championship.

"You can see how the five has turned into a two," Wright said, pointing out the fix on his tattoo.

And as if that wasn't bad enough, he said his car was broken into.






Quote
Wright said "I watched a guy coming past my car, creeping."

It happened around 7 a.m. on Tuesday -- and it's all on surveillance video captured from Wright's front door.

"He got my door open...when I came busting out after him," Wright said. "I literally watched him myself and chased him from the time he left my door till the time cops got him with his break-in tool. I followed him the whole time."

But again, Wright fell short of the win.

"They (police) straight-up told me if they didn't see it, it never happened," he said.

Kentucky law limits when an arrest can be made on a misdemeanor charge. The person in the video didn't steal anything from Wright, so even though he's on camera, officers had to let him go.

"My auto theft detective is currently following up on that case now," said Sgt. Jim Cirillo, of the Louisville Metro Police Department. "We are attempting to take out a criminal compliant on the suspect."

What's worse, Wright wasn't the only one to experience a car break-in.

"I saw a big hole in the driver's side door," said Douglas Griffin, another victim. "Since the alarm is so loud that's probably what scared him off."

"We just purchased the car," said Stephani Rains, a break-in victim. "We hadn't even had it a week."

"Stuck something in to unlock the door," said Sally Miller, another victim "Ripped into the glove compartment, went through all the papers."

"They stole a navigator out of our vehicle," Miller said.

Sgt. Cirillo says the same guy may be behind at least seven car break-ins in the Portland neighborhood this week.

"They let him go and gave him his tools back and that's what's really disturbing to me," Rains said.

"We care very much," said Sgt. Cirillo. "We can't just do things our own way because we don't think it's right. We have to follow the law the way it's written out."

Portland neighbors fear the suspect will continue to break into cars while police compile their case. In the meantime, Wright has posted his video to Facebook....going for neighborhood MVP.

UPDATE: Late Wednesday afternoon Louisville Metro Police took out a warrant against Damon Shelby-Harris...

About 40 police officers and sheriff's deputies are on the scene of a shooting and possible hostage situation at a doctor's office in Jemison, AL

Quote
About 40 police officers and sheriff's deputies are on the scene of a shooting and possible hostage situation at a doctor's office in Jemison.

City and sheriff's officials said the shooting happened a short time ago, about 9:30 a.m. at the office of Dr. Jayprakash Patel's in the 2400 block of U.S. 31. The highway is closed south of County Road 42.

Witnesses said a woman, who lives next door to Patel's office, got into some kind of domestic situation with her ex-husband or ex-boyfriend. She ran to the doctor's office yelling for help, said Jose Arreola, the owner of Chico's tire shop across the street.

Arreola said the woman got inside the front door of the clinic. "The guy was trying to get her,'' he said. "The doctors came out to help her but he pulled a gun and shot her."

"She was laying there a long time,'' Arreola said.

The gunman fled. It wasn't immediately clear if he ran back into the woman's home, but city officials believe that's where he was holed up. Arreola said the police have surrounded that home.

Jemison and Thorsby schools were placed on lockdown Monday morning following the shooting, Chilton County School Superintendent Tommy Glasscock posted on the school's website. School officials asked that parents not call 911, assuring them that students are safe.

Police have not announced any arrests in the case. A man believed to be the suspect wrote the following on his Facebook page this morning: "im sorry everyone, its been real, good bye and i love you all."

He also wrote, "I dei today." (sic)

An Evans woman opened up to her Alcoholic Anonymous sponsor and ended up in jail based partly on what she revealed about an underage party and sex romp at her home, according to authorities.

Her kids were with their father one night when her 16-year-old daughter texted her and asked if her and some friends could come over “to party.” Lenhardt replied “come on, let`s party.” Lenhardt allowed her teen daughter and her friends to smoke marijuana and drink her alcohol in her home. The group of minors and her played naked Twister in the living room.

Lenhardt had sex with an 18 year old in the bathroom while the others continued to play Twister. Lenhardt told her sponsor she was still “horny” afterward so she...

WKU swim program suspended for five years in wake of hazing investigation

Quote
Three swim and dive coaches are losing their jobs, one athlete is facing criminal charges and the entire swimming and diving program at Western Kentucky University was suspended for five years following a university Title IX investigation and a separate Bowling Green Police Department investigation.

WKU President Gary Ransdell and athletic director Todd Stewart announced the decision to suspend the program to the 50-plus team members and coaches this morning.

"These investigations revealed flagrant violations of our Student Code of Conduct and sexual harassment policies," Ransdell said in a memo this morning to WKU faculty and staff. "Specifically, the violations include hazing, underage alcohol consumption and abuse, including engagement of (prospective) student athletes on recruiting visits to campus. Additionally, the investigations found that coaches were aware of this pervasive culture and failed to sufficiently eliminate inappropriate behavior within these teams."

If police discover that any nude or partially nude person in the photographs was under age 18 when the photos were taken, anyone who has been possessed those photographs or took them could face child pornography charges, which could result in any guilty parties being placed on the sex offender registry, Milliken said.

"The statute of limitations never expires on a felony," Milliken said. Police continue to seek information on potential victims in this case...

Man shoots at armadillo, hits mother-in-law
« Reply #111 on: April 15, 2015, 02:38:24 pm »

Sure he did.

Quote
Lee County (Georgia) Sheriff's deputies said 54-year-old Larry McElroy was outside when he fired his 9 mm pistol at the armadillo. The bullet killed the animal, but also ricocheted off of it, hit a fence, went through the back door of his mother-in-law's mobile home, through a recliner she was sitting in, and into her back.

According to a report, McElroy was about 100 yards away from the home at the time.

I talked to a woman who Britt McHenry attacked on Twitter last month: http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2015/04/post_670.html … @richarddeitsch @awfulannouncing

Quote
ESPN reporter Britt McHenry, who was suspended for a week by the network on Thursday after a video of her verbally berating a woman became public, has previously bullied at least one another woman, this time on Twitter.

Last month, Sarah Sparkman, an Arkansas-based attorney, was having a conversation on Twitter about the sexualization of women in sports broadcasting. Sparkman, who majored in journalism in college, took issue with female journalists being branded more as sexual objects than for their talents...

McHenry wrote that Sparkman was "more of a hater than the men themselves" and insinuated she wasn't pretty. ... Sparkman talked about women being beautiful and intelligent; McHenry replied "I believe it's the ppl who don't have 1 trait or the other who try to demean others."

After those tweets, Sparkman tweeted, "Man, I swear I can't give an opinion without some rando on Twitter seeking me out and bashing their misinterpretation."

This seemed to set McHenry off.

She replied "Technically given the two of us, you're the rando" and "you sound really bitter. If you work as hard as you say you do, you wouldn't bash more successful ppl on Twitter."

In the video that went viral, McHenry insulted the tow lot woman's education and looks, while reminding the woman multiple times that she was on television. She later issued an apology saying she "allowed my emotions to get the best of me and said some insulting and regrettable things."

Sparkman wasn't surprised when she watched the leaked video leaked, which shows McHenry at one point telling the other woman "lose some weight, baby girl".

What if I told you that nine people on a softball team worked together over seven years to steal over $100,000 worth of the Bluegrass’ best bourbon? Oh yeah, and steroids.



Quote
In the infamous “Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon Heist” last year, a number of barrels of Pappy mysteriously disappeared from the legendary bourbon distillery. Franklin County Sheriff Pat Melton held a news conference on Tuesday in which he said nine people have been indicted for stealing over $100,000 worth of bourbon over the course of the last seven years. The nine individuals included three that worked inside bourbon distilleries (one at Wild Turkey and two at Buffalo Trace) and together they hatched a plan that involved exploiting each bourbon’s security weaknesses in order to take massive amounts of the product. According to the sheriff, all nine met while playing on a local softball team, where they hatched the plan and formed a “criminal syndicate” to engage in the illegal trafficking of bourbon. Over the course of the seven years, they were able to steal bottles and a number of barrels, the conspicuous nature of the latter of which helped bring them to justice. As the sheriff noted, “how many people do you know that have bourbon barrels at their house?”

Because of the nature of the crime, most of the bourbon is ruined as security requires all the bourbon to be emptied from the barrels and only the unopened bottles could be salvaged.

PANAMA CITY BEACH — A University of Florida fraternity is under investigation after being accused of disrespecting a group of disabled military veterans by spitting on them and stealing their flags at a Panama City Beach resort last weekend.

University of Florida President Kent Fuchs personally apologized for the behavior of the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity members toward the veterans participating in the Warrior Beach Retreat at Laketown Wharf Resort. Fuchs promised a full investigation.

“The incidents and behavior you and others have described (in letters and phone calls) and the offense to the wounded warriors and other guests are unacceptable,” Fuchs wrote in a letter emailed to Linda Cope, founder of the Warrior Beach Retreat. “We are pursuing an investigation of the matter to learn more about the involvement of University of Florida students and whether disciplinary action will be needed.”

UPDATE: Already on [double secret?] probation, UF frat could face expulsion for insulting beach vets http://www.newsherald.com/news/uf-pres-frat-apologizes-for-treatment-of-disabled-vets-in-pcb-1.468680


Unbelievable. Stealing their American Flags, & spitting on disabled veterans.  No excuse for this behavior, specially from so called...."college students"...that should know better.  Evidently they are not learning much at school.  Sounds like some parents are wasting their money on these individuals education. They have already failed.  Their parents should make them quit college, & join the military for a couple of years....before continuing their college education.

Teen and boatmate 'lucky, thankful, blessed' to survive Mobile Bay storm that flipped sail boat

Quote
During the 2015 Dauphin Island Regatta a storm capsized their small catamaran and put Hana Blalack and Ron Gaston in the water. It was the first time Blalack, 15, had been sailing. They had already crossed the finish line and were heading back when the storm overtook them. Later, after they were rescued following two and a half hours in the water, they learned just how bad the day really was. Boats were capsized, and sailors were dead or missing.

"Just for a second it was, 'Boat or Hana?'" said Gaston, who has been sailing since he was a teen. "I let go of the rope."

"He told me later that he thought, 'I can get a new boat. I can't get a new Hana,'" added Blalack.

The overturned boat quickly disappeared into the gathering maelstrom of howling wind, blinding rain and building seas.

Now adrift, Gaston and Blalack, who is a sophomore at Spanish Fort High School, held onto each other in an effort to stem impacts of teeth-chattering cold that set in within minutes and to keep from being pulled apart as the storm's fury threatened to do at any second over the next half-hour at least...

A&M Galveston Professor Hits ‘Breaking Point,’ Fails Entire Class

Quote
Galveston, Texas (CBS HOUSTON) — A Texas A&M Galveston professor says he hit a “breaking point” as he failed an entire class of students in his management course that he said required “security guards” for him to feel safe teaching.

In a scathing email sent to students in his Strategic Management class, Texas A&M Galveston professor Irwin Horwitz called his class a disgrace to the school and said “it became apparent they couldn’t do some of the most simple and basic things they should have been able to do,” KPRC-TV reports. Horwitz said a semester of backstabbing, lying, cheating and disrespect has caused him to fail everyone in the class and that he will no longer be teaching the course.

“Enough was enough,” Horwitz wrote in the email obtained by KPRC. “Yesterday I reached the breaking point.”

The lengthy, fiery email to students explained to students why they would all be receiving failing grades, included is Horwitz’s claim that the students were spreading untrue online rumors about his wife and that he felt threatened enough to physically teach the course that he required police protection.

“I was dealing with cheating, dealing with individuals swearing at me both in and out of class, it got to the point that the school had to put security guards at that class and another class,” said Horowitz. He said students’ complete lack of maturity and general incompetence proved they weren’t fit to enter the workforce.

“Just ridiculous, I had never had a problem in the class. I thought I had done pretty well, done pretty well on the first test and then I get an email saying I am going to get an F in the class, it was overwhelming,” said senior John Shaw, who is worried the course credits could mess up a job he has lined up after graduation next month.

But the university’s vice president of academic affairs, Dr. Patrick Louchouarn, said that while administrators respect Horwitz, his failing grades won’t be upheld.

Chase Parham ‏@RivalsChase

We lost our Superman today. On the ride home from Memphis, to keep from going crazy, I had these thoughts - http://rvls.co/1Ansl3b

Quote
Even on Wednesday, as we celebrated two weeks, despite some stats drops and hazy lung scans, positive hopes remained. Then, on Thursday morning, his color changed, complications occurred, and I watched as he was loaded and flown 45 minutes to Memphis.

My son passed away Thursday afternoon in my arms, his tiny hand wrapped around my finger. In those final minutes, we were able to hold him and tell him we love him and what a difference he made on this world. As I sit here numb, angry and writing because I'm struggling to audibly put together words, I'm filled with thanks and incredible appreciation as well as the honor that comes with being that boy's father.

I changed diapers, took his temperature and watched him continuously grab my fingers with his toes during our two weeks together. He opened his eyes and responded to voices and provided proof that God does magnificent things.

But, my main takeaway as I write for therapy and to give thanks, is that in 15 brief days Clark touched more lives and organized more positive human interaction than some of us do over a lifetime. Just four days old, we counted 14 different states where he occupied a spot on the prayer lists at churches.

A&M Galveston Professor Hits ‘Breaking Point,’ Fails Entire Class


Talk about a school that is out of control??  Hear about this in Jr. High, & High School's in some parts of the country....but never at a college before.  There is no excuse for the administration of a college to let it get to a point that a professor has to have police protection to teach classes.  The trouble makers should have been weeded out long before that.

If the money from this Santa Claus fund eventually made it to one of these schools athletic departments, he will probably be acquitted....

Missouri woman tells police she was held captive in wooden box

Quote
Louis Tuck sensed something was amiss the few times he saw the man and woman who lived in the modest house next door.

“She seemed fearful,” he said. “I grew up in an abusive home, so I know what it looks like.”

Even so, Tuck and other neighbors in the 800 block of East 15th Street in Sedalia were shocked Friday to hear about what allegedly had been happening in that house.

The 38-year-old woman called police Thursday night and told them that her boyfriend, James Barton Horn Jr., 47, had held her captive for four months, sometimes confining her in a wooden box...

When the woman called police from a neighbor’s house, she was “hysterical,” Police Chief John DeGonia said. When officers went to the house, Horn was gone.

After police had obtained a search warrant, they found the kind of wooden box the woman had described. It was made of plywood, 4 feet high and wide and 8 feet deep, said Police Sgt. Josh Howell.

“We did indeed find a homemade wooden container that would certainly contain a human being,” Howell said. “It appeared to be used for just that purpose.”

DeGonia said officers thought the relationship between the woman and Horn “began as consensual, but it eventually led to ‘you can’t leave.’”

Toronto man killed in Louisville while visiting for Kentucky Derby
Colleagues remember Scott Hunter's 'heart of gold'


Quote
A Toronto man visiting Louisville for the Kentucky Derby was shot and killed in what appeared to be a robbery attempt late Saturday, local police say.

Scott Hunter, who worked as a bartender at the House on Parliament on Parliament Street, was visiting the area with a friend for the famous horse race.

Three people have been arrested and face murder and robbery charges in connection with Hunter's killing. Among the charged are a brother and sister. They're identified as 19-year-old Tyrone Thomas, 20-year-old Fatima Abu-Diab and 18-year-old Fahed Abu-Diab.

Police believe the trio is responsible for as many as nine robberies in the last three days.

Police said Hunter and a friend were walking around 9 p.m. in the Highland Park neighbourhood of Louisville when they were approached and an altercation ensued. Hunter was shot and pronounced dead at the scene. His friend was not hurt...

Downtown Nashville street performer known as "Silver Man" has been indicted on sex battery charges. http://tnne.ws/1I9Ovwr  via @tennessean

Quote
John Casey was arrested Feb. 28, a day after a woman contacted police and said Casey inappropriately touched her while she was on a ladder in front of a downtown boot store, according to police. A Davidson County grand jury delivered the two-count indictment last week.

Casey, 44, was arrested on Lower Broadway, where he earned his nickname, "Silver Man," for dressing up in silver clothing and covering himself in silver makeup to earn money.

He faces two felony charges of sexual battery and is in jail..

GULFPORT - A woman being held in the Harrison County jail is accused of driving naked and impaired when she led deputies on a high-speed pursuit on Interstate 10 two weeks ago.

Deputies say Steele drove at speeds up to 120 mph, weaving through traffic.

When her car ran over stop sticks blowing out a tire, she finally stopped.

Deputies walked up to the car and Steele, wearing no clothes, told them she had been drinking.

A very Missouri thing to do.


 Surprised some low-grade lawyer hasn't figured out this angle.  He would represent the  genius teen burglar/crook that tasted/snorted the remains, & claim that the jar should have been labeled.  His client has suffered mental & physical harm,  can't sleep at night, etc.  The biggest problem with that lawsuit....might be proving that his client can actually read labels....
