    EAST BRIDGEWATER, Mass. - Two women are accused of performing voodoo on a 5-year-old girl who will now have scars on her face for the rest of her life. Police said two family friends poured boiling water with chemicals on her face because they thought she was possessed by the devil. East Bridgewater police said Rachel Hilaire and Peggy Labossiere burned the girl and told her 8-year-old brother they would cut off his head with a machete. “Two friends did a voodoo procedure is what they called it,” Deputy Police Chief Paul O’Brien said. “They are young kids, and they...

    Blame the ex-Police man. A song by the band’s former frontman Sting sparked a wild brawl between a Florida couple that culminated with a man chomping down on his boyfriend’s lip. Byron Haynes and his live-in beau, Yakeme Moore, were bickering inside their home in the seaside city of Bradenton Sunday, when Haynes, for some reason, flipped out when he heard the singer’s 1985 tune, “If You Love Somebody Set Them Free,” according to documents posted by The Smoking Gun.

    A Northern California jury awarded more than $4 million in punitive damages to a former leader of the Black Panthers who was injured after an Oakland councilwoman punched and pushed her during an argument over housing. The jury found Oakland councilwoman Desley Brooks should pay $550,000 to Elaine Brown, who was injured after Brooks pushed her during a 2015 confrontation at a restaurant. The same jury last month found that Brooks was acting as a city employee and decided Oakland should pay Brown $3.8 million in damages, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Tuesday. […] The jury said the former Black...

According to Canadian media reports, the charges include: - Eight counts of assault - Two counts of sexual assault - Two counts of unlawful confinement - One count of uttering death threats - One...

    A Twin Cities photographer on Thursday accused Twins third baseman Miguel Sano of grabbing her and trying to kiss her after an autograph session at a local mall in 2015, saying on Twitter that “no, he didn’t rape me, but he sure did assault me.” Betsy Bissen, who occasionally photographed Twins games on an unpaid freelance basis for the Twins Daily fan website, posted on Twitter her description of the October 2015 incident, which she said left her body “sore all over from having to fight off this athlete that thought he was entitled to take advantage of me against...
  • 'Court freed anti-Semitic volcano ready to explode'

    An Arab man arrested for attacking a Kosher restaurant in Amsterdam has pledged to follow up with more violent attacks, a Dutch anti-Semitism monitor has warned, yet was freed just over two days after his initial arrest. On the morning of December 7th, Saleh Ali smashed the windows of the HaCarmel restaurant in Amsterdam while carrying a Palestine Liberation Organization flag. Ali then broke into the restaurant, stole an Israeli flag, and threw it to the ground. Police officers who had watched Ali attack the restaurant then intervened, overpowering and forcibly arresting him. The attack took place just hours after...

    ROSEVILLE (CBS13) — A Salvation Army bell ringer was attacked in front of Walmart for simply spreading holiday cheer. We’ve all heard it; the jingle that means it’s nearly Christmas and ringing in sounds of hope for donations. But not everyone is in the giving spirit. “I greet everybody, 'Merry Christmas,'” said Rev. Jamie Wolfe, Sr. Sadly, those two simple words got this bell ringer knocked out. “He haymakered me, hit me, got me down on the ground and we started wrestling, at that point I’m fighting for my life,” Wolfe Sr. said. The man wasn’t after the kettle money,...

    Hours after apologizing for lecturing public-radio reporter Karen DeWitt about sexual harassment, Gov. Cuomo held his birthday fund-raising party - with ex-President Bill Clinton as the star guest. Oops. The only act more tone-deaf would've been giving a shout-out to Bronx City Councilman Andy King, who's dealing with misconduct allegations of his own. Democrats nationwide are rushing to get ahead of the post-Weinstein avalanche of sexual-misconduct allegations. They've rapidly pushed out one senator and two House members without waiting for due process, and some have even expressed regrets over their 1990s defenses of Clinton. But they're finding it hard to...

Brittany Covington narrated a Facebook Live video showing the special needs teen being tortured and humiliated in the Chicago apartment she shared with her sister Tanishia, who is still behind bars in this matter along with co-defendants Tesfaye Cooper and Jordan Hill.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Steve Wyard thought he knew what sexual harassment looked like: a put-out-or-lose-your-job overture. Now he's not so sure. "Have we gotten to the point now where men can't say, 'That's a nice dress' or 'Did you do something with your hair?'" says the veteran sales associate for a Los Angeles company. "The potential problem is you can't even feel safe saying, 'Good morning' anymore." But he says his wife, the CEO at a health maintenance organization, got a complaint from a woman just last month who believed a fellow employee was getting too personal. "It turned...

    Finally, Nancy Pelosi's faux feminist veneer has fully cracked. The Democratic "shero" is, and always has been, a sham. But after Pelosi's incoherent babblefest on "Meet the Press" defending accused groper John Conyers and clown-cad Al Franken, the progressive left can no longer mask her partisan perv apologism. Pelosi milked her XX chromosomes for all their electoral worth. Her official biography brags about her role as "the most powerful woman in American politics" and her induction into the National Women's Hall of Fame. Over three decades on Capitol Hill, she has scooped up Ms. Magazine's Woman of the Year award,...

    In his first interview since being attacked outside his home earlier this month, Sen. Rand Paul said he thinks politics may have been a factor in why he was targeted by his neighbor. “It may have some relevance, but for the most part, the real question should be are you allowed to attack someone from behind in their yard when they’re out mowing their grass?” Mr. Paul, Kentucky Republican, said on Fox News in an interview that aired Tuesday.
