Casing this one now: Rep. Butt says her son to be charged with contributing to delinquency of minor http://tnne.ws/1RhwyjJ  via @tennessean

Quote
Rep. Sheila Butt, R-Columbia, says her son Cliff will be charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

"Stan and I have been informed today by Maury County law enforcement that our 40 year old son, Cliff, is going to be charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor," Butt said in a statement, referencing her husband Stan.

"We sympathize with the parents of the young people involved. We would feel the same way. We are like every other family and have tried to raise our children to make wise choices. As a grown man, we love our son and will pray for him and for the families involved. However, we do not condone this behavior and he will have to bear the consequences of his actions."

Sabotage conviction overturned for nun, activists who broke into Y-12 http://tnne.ws/1H7aANq  via @tennessean #tennessee

Quote
NASHVILLE — An 85-year-old nun and two fellow Catholic peace activists who splashed blood on the walls of a bunker holding weapons-grade uranium — exposing vulnerabilities in the nation's nuclear security — were wrongly convicted of sabotage, an appeals court ruled Friday.

At issue was whether Sister Megan Rice, 66-year-old Michael Walli and 59-year-old Greg Boertje-Obed injured national security when they cut through several fences to break into the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge in July 2012. A panel of the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in a 2-1 decision that they did not.

Once there, the trio had hung banners, prayed and hammered on the outside wall of the bunker to symbolize a Bible passage that refers to the end of war: "They will beat their swords into ploughshares."

Sadly misguided people.  They mean well, but are not really using common sense with some of their actions & what they are saying.

Two of the defendants quotes:

"Nuclear weapons are not our security.  We have an obligation to transform & we're doing it thru symbolic witness".
"The important message of the appeal, is the illegality of Nuclear weapons. They are sabotaging the planet".

Do these people really believe that our country (& the world) would be safer if we got rid of our nuclear weapons?  Do they really think that Russia, North Korea, China, Iran, etc......would just give up all theirs too, & could be trusted to do so?  This is pure fantasy, & would be worse than just dangerous.  It would be self destructive.

For years a blind Texas pole vaulter chased a medal by trying to clear a bar she couldn't see. She did it Saturday. http://www.statesman.com/ap/ap/sports/blind-high-school-pole-vaulter-goes-for-medal-in-t/nmHhD/

Quote
AUSTIN, Texas — For three years, Charlotte Brown has been chasing a medal by trying to jump over a bar she couldn't see.

The senior pole vaulter cleared that bar Saturday, earning a third-place finish at the Texas state high school championships. And proudly joining her on the podium as the bronze medal was draped around her neck — her service dog Vador.

"I finally did it," Brown said. "If I could send a message to anybody, it's not about pole vaulting and it's not about track. It's about finding something that makes you happy despite whatever obstacles are in your way."

There is #TeamNF and then there is leaving your shift at Wendy's to steal an ambulance to go buy Fireball. http://kentuckysportsradio.com/main/wendys-employee-steals-ambulance-to-go-buy-fireball-and-i-think-im-in-love/

Quote
A fast food employee in Georgetown, Ky. is in a ton of trouble after she stole an ambulance for a quick liquor run to buy a bottle of Fireball.

According to the News-Graphic, Tara Anne Hughes dropped what she was doing at Wendy’s to jump in an ambulance that was idling outside while its crew dined inside the restaurant. Hughes drove it to a nearby liquor store for Fireball and crashed into the store’s awning in the process. The ambulance was found at a Marathon station around the corner, where she was taken into custody.

Hughes is charged with theft by unlawful taking over $10,000 but less than $1 million, driving under the influence, first-degree criminal mischief and possession or use of a radio that sends and receives police signals.

Lol.....guess somebody's quarter pounder w/ fries had to wait  ;D  This food chain evidently needs to be located in closer proximity to liquor stores.  The employee's will then be able to walk to them during their breaks, & won't be tempted to....."steal a ride".....

Nashville man facing 492 charges arrested for public intoxication

Quote
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A Davidson County man who has 492 charges filed against him has been arrested again.

Robert Brown, 46, was arrested on Tuesday after police said they found him sitting at an entrance ramp for Interstate 65 drinking a 40-ounce beer.

According to the affidavit, the responding officer found five other empty beer bottles near where Brown was sitting.

"The defendant sits in the same spot almost every day and becomes intoxicated until police come and arrest him," states the affidavit.

Most of the charges against Brown are for public intoxication.

Arrested 492 times??  Most of them are public intoxication??   Maybe one of these judges should sentence him to clean up work detail for about 30 days ...each time he is arrested. Maybe start with cleaning up the area where he is drinking & getting arrested nearly every day.  At least this would cut down on his number of arrests.  Just getting arrested, doesn't seem to bother him.  Got to make it more uncomfortable for him, & interrupt his beer drinking.

Horrible story coming out of Sedalia today: http://www.komu.com/news/man-accused-of-holding-woman-in-box-suspected-of-killing-her/
12:09 PM - 21 May 2015

Quote
SEDALIA - (Updated at 4:45 p.m.) Law enforcement officers confirmed they did not find their suspect in a search of three houses in Sedalia where they believed James Horn may have been holed up Thursday after the murder of a woman he had previously kept captive in a box for four months. The woman's son was also killed.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol and Sedalia police went to the house in the 800 block of E. 15th Street after police discovered the body of Sandra Kay Sutton and her 17-year-old son, Zachary Wade Sutton, at a home in Clinton. During a six-hour period, law enforcement teams searched three houses in the area, at times using a robot.

Horn was accused of keeping the 46-year-old Sutton inside a box for four months. He has remained at large since Sutton escaped on April 30. He has been charged with rape, assault, felonious restraint, unlawful use of a weapon, and armed criminal action. He was previously a registered sex offender.

After the bodies were found Thursday, The Clinton Police Department said, "Horn should be considered armed and dangerous."

During an afternoon press conference, Clinton police said surveillance video shows Sutton's car was left outside of Bothwell Hospital in Sedalia at 4:15 a.m. Sutton's family called police at 4:21 a.m.

Clinton police said there was no sign of forced entry at the house where Sutton's body was found.

A chaplin was helping Sutton's family relocate from the crime scene.

According to a probable cause statement released earlier this month, Horn, Jr. and Sutton got into a fight while driving in his car in January. Once they returned to the residence, Horn, Jr. began to build the wooden structure Sutton would be held in. Court documents said Horn, Jr. made Sutton help build the structure saying that she feared for her life if she made any attempt to flee or leave. Sutton said Horn, Jr. would also brandish a knife with a yellow handle by "keeping it near me and showing it to me."

According to police, the wooden structure was 100 inches long, 48 inches wide, and 52 inches tall, and was located in a bedroom. The box was sound proofed with layers of insulation and padding, with a small hole cut to allow air to enter...

Quote
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The Channel 4 I-Team revealed the new logo for the Tennessee state government and how much it cost to create Wednesday.

Now, online petitions are circulating seeking to keep the famous Tennessee stars in the logo.

After the I-Team's initial report, many Tennesseans took to social media with a sense of humor and a decent amount of outrage about the new logo.

"I've got a 4-year-old granddaughter. She can do better," Donna Levi said.

The new logo comes with a $46,000 price tag that the state paid to Nashville marketing firm GS&F.

Check out my first story for The Tennessean: Man stuck in drainage pipe was 'being adventurous' http://tnne.ws/1S3wUe4  via @tennessean

Quote
A 53-year-old Nashville man who was rescued by emergency personnel Sunday after spending four days stuck in an 18-inch drainage pipe told authorities he was "being adventurous."

The man told Nashville Fire Department engineer Larry McCown he entered a storm drain off Charlotte Avenue Thursday evening and had been stuck in the pipe for four days.

The man was heard crying for help during an event at the Centennial Sportsplex Tennis Center...

"I never told him we were about to get him out because I didn't want to give him false hope," McCown said. "But we were able to bring him up out of the opening, and EMS patient care took him."

McCown emphasized that the 15 to 18 emergency personnel working to free the man worked "smooth, cool, and organized."

"I had the easy part. The real hard, exhausting work was by the crew with the sledge hammers and hydraulic tools," McCown said.

Dog found in dead owner's arms after tornado starts new life: http://cbsn.ws/1Ln88kq 

Quote
VAN, Texas -- An 8-year-old dog is getting a second chance at life -- just two weeks after a deadly tornado hit her hometown.

The Great Pyrenees was found alive in the arms of her owner David Tapley, who was killed in Van, Texas, after his home collapsed.

The dog had bruises, a busted eardrum and head trauma. To add to her injuries, she was also homeless and without an owner.

That's when Nicolas Pet Haven stepped in.

The dog was taken to the Texas animal shelter, where she was introduced to volunteer Missy Shockley.

Shockley found the gentle giant in the back of a crate.

"She didn't want to [come out] so I climb back into the pickup and started loving on her and she came into my lap," Shockley told CBS Dallas.

And that's all it took.

Within a week, the dog renamed "Emma," was adopted.

"Knowing what she went through -- knowing what that they lost their lives -- maybe she was put in my hands for a reason," says Shockley.

Nashville attorney hopes scholarship contest will curb texting and driving, here's scholarship info: http://tnne.ws/1SnNoha  #itcanwait

Quote
A Nashville law firm is offering $1,000 scholarships to high school and college students whose essays best answer this question: If you had to convince just one friend not to text and drive, what would you say?

"Half of my cases are the result of texting and driving," said David Weissman, a personal injury attorney at Hollins Raybin and Weissman. "When I was a baby lawyer, it was drinking and driving, and now it's texting and driving, which is essentially the same thing."

Weissman is both personally and professionally passionate about the topic. He admits he gets angry when he sees drivers on cellphones.

"I've got an 18-year-old and a 15-year-old who just started driving," he said. "A couple of years back we got hit from behind from a kid who was texting while driving. Fortunately we weren't hurt, but it scared me to death."

Texting while driving is illegal in Tennessee and most other states. Last year in Tennessee there were 21,021 distracted driving crashes — a category that includes the use of cellphones and other distractions — that injured 8,602 people and killed 48, according to the Governor's Highway Safety Office.

This is the first year the firm has offered scholarships. Weissman said he hopes the scholarship encourages young adults to spread the word about the dangers of texting behind the wheel, especially during the Memorial Day weekend when many will be traveling...

According to Bluegrass Crime Stoppers, a group of two to four females have robbed several stores over the past two months, bringing in large bags and clearing out thousands of dollars of merchandise in under a minute. The speed with which they pull off the heists is kind of ridiculous. Watch them in action (embedded video available at link above).

Lol.  Wonder if the motive is to sell all this stuff.....or to keep some themselves?

Maybe these girls pictures will show up on some dating site before long, wearing their new attire...minus the wigs.    ;D

By @KentuckyCIR Ignoring court order, cops in Kentucky town put mentally-ill man on bus to Fla http://www.kentucky.com/2015/05/29/3874508_ignoring-court-order-police-in.html … pic.twitter.com/fibHgAxL1W



Quote
CARROLLTON — Adam Horine leaned on the courtroom podium, wept and begged.

He called himself "crazy" but insisted he could represent himself. He said he was dying and needed care.

The April 22 hearing before Carroll District Judge Elizabeth Chandler stood out from Horine's many other court appearances over the years for an array of mostly minor offenses.

In a rambling, sometimes confusing dialogue with the judge, Horine, 31, his voice cracking, said he loved Kentucky, but "they are trying to force me out."

Horine was absolutely right. Just hours later, he'd be embarking — alone — on a 900-mile, one-way bus trip to Florida, courtesy of the Carrollton Police Department.

"I should be in the hospital," Horine pleaded with the judge during the hearing. "I have mental illness, and I say things I shouldn't say. But I would never hurt anybody. I never have."

Chandler responded that Horine looked sick, according to a video of the hearing obtained by the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting. And she questioned his competence to enter a plea to misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and making verbal threats.

She ordered an immediate mental-health examination and transport to Eastern State Hospital in Lexington for a more thorough psychiatric assessment.

Within hours, a social worker's preliminary evaluation at the Carroll County jail determined Horine was hearing voices, felt suicidal, was not sleeping, had no medication and wanted to hurt "certain people."

The next step was Eastern State, where Horine could receive the treatment the social worker and the judge thought he urgently needed.

But Carrollton police had a very different plan for Horine. They wanted him out of town and out of the state. They wanted to rid themselves of this tormented petty criminal. They wanted to make him someone else's problem.

So, just hours after the hearing, a police officer, acting at the direction of police Chief Michael Willhoite, plucked Horine from jail. Officer Ron Dickow drove him 50 miles in a police cruiser to Louisville. Arriving at the Greyhound terminal downtown before dawn, Dickow bought Horine a one-way bus ticket to Florida with money provided by the chief.

Dickow forked over the change — about $18 — to Horine. Then he sent the emotionally troubled man on a 28-hour solitary bus ride to the Sunshine State's west coast.

"This just doesn't happen. It's not supposed to happen in our system," David Harris, associate dean and a professor of criminal law at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, said of the actions taken against Horine.

The move seemingly defies basic accepted 21st-century police practices. It also raises questions about why police dispatched this distressed man with pending criminal charges out of state, and whether they intentionally ignored the judge's orders, according to a KyCIR review of court and jail documents and interviews with two dozen local and state officials and criminal-justice experts...

Murderer came, went from Hinds jail as he pleased

Quote
A convicted murderer split wood, baled hay and even stayed away overnight from the Hinds County Detention Center, a state Department of Corrections investigation has found.

"He's supposed to be in there for life," Corrections Commissioner Marshall Fisher said. "My investigators told me he was worked on numerous officers' personal vehicles."

Jerry Mack, 49, a state inmate who was also serving time for aggravated assault and cocaine possession, was changing out of regular clothing into green and white striped clothing issued by the Mississippi Department of Corrections when corrections officials arrived Wednesday afternoon to transport him to Central Mississippi Correctional Facility.

"In a weekly timeframe, I normally run by my house twice a week. I try to sleep at my house twice a month," Mack was quoted as telling investigators. "When I was away from the HSO (Hinds Sheriff's Office) Farm, the dispatcher at the HSO Farm would call my cell phone and tell me where to go. To my knowledge everyone at the HSO Farm was aware that I had a cell phone."

Mack also alleged he stored his horse at the farm and was paid cash to work on cars, bail hay, clean houses, split wood, gather eggs at locations off prison grounds and do other errands in a county vehicle.

When corrections officials stopped him Wednesday, they found $435 in his pocket, a cell phone and a valid driver's license. Fisher said they're still investigating how Mack got that license.

Fisher said it is obvious Mack wasn't supervised based strictly on the contraband found on him...

Lol.  Guess this is the new, modern prison (correction) system. Looks like it needs a little "correcting", itself.  Mississippi appears to be breaking new ground...with correction facility procedures.

No reason to escape from a prison, when they pretty much let you drive around in a county vehicle.  Also, letting him go home a few nights a month, & being on..."call by use of his cellphone"...is certainly a new idea for imprisoned felons.

Glad they caught him before hunting season rolled around. Can just see him out there on a deer stand somewhere, in a camo/orange convict's uniform.... :)

Yeah, after this investigation is over......several are going to be in hot water.

Marshall Matt Dillon on Gunsmoke, ran plenty of guys out of town & told them not to come back.  Yet, even Matt......wouldn't go against a Judge's ruling & orders.  Old Matt had a better grip on law & order.....than this Kentucky bunch.

A former Mississippi State cheerleader is suing ESPN and the university for injuries she suffered during the 2013 Egg Bowl.

Michaela Mills filed paperwork for a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in Aberdeen on Monday seeking damages for an injury that occurred during a football game in 2013.

Mills was dressed as MSU's mascot "Bully" when Mississippi State played Ole Miss at Davis Wade Stadium on Nov. 28, 2013. During the game an ESPN cart ran over Mills' leg while she was wearing the mascot costume on the field. The accident caused a compound fracture and led to two subsequent surgeries immediately after the game. According to the lawsuit, Mills still experiences pain despite the procedure that including placing a rod in her leg.

A Lower Broadway street performer known as the "Silver Man," who was a fixture in downtown Nashville, has been sentenced to more than a year in jail after pleading guilty to sexual battery.

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...

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

Random find during Googling: Why give inmates an elaborate meal right before killing them http://read.bi/15Kn224  via @BI_Lawandorder

Quote
Why do we let inmates have last meals of their choosing?

Nobody really knows, but Brent Cunningham writes that one theory is the state wants to look more humane than the people it's executing.

Texas, however, doesn't want to be that dignified anymore. The Lone Star State ended its last meal policy in 2011, after a convicted killer ordered a massive meal that he decided not to eat. Here's what he ordered, according to the Houston Chronicle.

"two chicken fried steaks, a triple-meat bacon cheeseburger, a cheese omelet, a large bowl of fried okra, three fajitas, a pint of Blue Bell ice cream, and a pound of barbecue with a half loaf of white bread."

Ruined it for everyone else.

He might have made the right call on the Blue Bell

Blue Bell Creameries will give state health department officials two weeks' notice when they plan to restart production following a lengthy recall.

A Hermitage woman is facing at least 40 years in prison after a jury found her guilty Thursday of aggravated rape of a child, child abuse and child neglect.

Becky Burlison, 42, was the child's babysitter, and according to Assistant District Attorney Alyssa Hennig, a trusted family friend.

But in April 2012, she was arrested because the boy suffered severe injuries. Police said Burlison inserted a hair brush handle into the 2-year-old's...

Hoover woman overdosed on heroin while babysitting; nephew, 6, tried CPR he had seen on TV

Quote
A 36-year-old woman faces drug and child endangerment charges after police say she overdosed on heroin while babysitting two young children, one of whom tried to revive her with techniques he told police he had seen on TV.

The incident happened about 4 p.m. on May 28 at Waterford at Riverchase Apartments. The woman, Victoria Nacole Newman, survived the overdose and was jailed Friday after Hoover detectives obtained three warrants against her...

"This case is yet another example of the destruction being caused by the heroin epidemic. This innocent 6-year-old boy was clearly the most responsible person present at this residence,'' Hoover police Capt. Gregg Rector said. "He did everything he knew to do to try and help a family member that he cared about very much. But what if he or the 2-year-old had accidentally ingested the heroin or cocaine? What if he accidentally stuck himself with a syringe? What if something terrible happened to him when he left the apartment to find help? "

Dallas butt injections death ruled a homicide | @dallasnews http://share.d-news.co/GNFqRiH

Quote
The death of a woman who received black-market silicone buttocks injections in Deep Ellum was ruled a homicide, the Dallas County medical examiner’s office said Monday.

Wykesha Reid, 34, a nursing home employee, died of pulmonary embolization of silicone, stemming from the illegal cosmetic surgery, the office said.

Denise “Wee Wee” Ross, 43, and Jimmy “Alicia” Clarke, 31, are charged with practicing medicine without a license in a separate case, in which a woman told police she suffered pain and psychological trauma after they injected her buttocks.

Police say Ross and Clarke ran an illegal buttocks-enhancing operation out of a salon in the 3800 block of East Side Avenue. That’s where Reid got butt injections three times and died on the fourth time, according to her family.
