    Joplin, MO - The Joplin Police Department has been ordered to cease all posting of "incident spotlights" which make criminals look bad by telling the public about their crimes. The incident spotlights tell the public about incidents that the department has responded to, and may include mugshots. KOAM reports that they have obtained e-mails which show disagreement between the police department and city manager about the social media posts. Joplin Police Chief Matt Stewart and Captain Trevor Duncan fought to keep the posts going, but City Manager Sam Anselm shut them down. According to KOAM, Anselm sent an e-mail to...

  • City (Colorado Springs, CO) Puts Up 'Big Blue Frame' — And Removes It After Citizens Put Up A Fight

    The goal was to promote the city of Colorado Springs as "Olympic City U.S.A." But the method — erecting a big blue frame at the edge of a scenic overlook at Garden of the Gods Park — drew anger from residents. Just days after it was put up, the frame was taken down. The frame, seemingly meant to add pizzazz to park visitors' photos, sparked "sustained outrage" instead, member station KRCC reports. Its arrival last week took many residents by surprise. It was taken down on Monday, without ceremony. "It seemed like a very strange thing to put in this...

    British firefighters were "seriously unimpressed" when they were called out to rescue a YouTube prankster whose head was cemented inside a microwave. A video posted to YouTube by 22-year-old prankster TGFbro shows his head being cemented inside a microwave with Pollyfilla with a plastic bag protecting his face and a tube feeding him air. The prankster tells his friends that, despite the precautions, he is having trouble breathing, and they attempt to free his head -- without success. The West Midlands Fire Department was summoned to the scene and firefighters spent about an hour freeing the man's head. "We're seriously...

    More than 400 American millionaires and billionaires are sending a letter to Congress this week urging Republican lawmakers not to cut their taxes. The wealthy Americans — including doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs and chief executives — say the GOP is making a mistake by reducing taxes on the richest families at a time when the nation's debt is high and inequality is back at the worst level since the 1920s. The letter calls on Congress not to pass any tax bill that “further exacerbates inequality” and adds to the debt. Instead of petitioning tax cuts for the wealthy, the letter tells...

    What was supposed to be just another problem to solve for a freshman math class has turned into a controversy after a teacher used the Sept. 11 attacks as a word problem on a test. CBS Boston reports the Newburyport High School teacher used specifics from the terrorist attacks, down to the flight number, asking students to calculate how long United Airlines Flight 175 was in the air before it hit the World Trade Center. ... While some were certainly offended by this math problem, some parents and students accept the teacher's apology. "She's a nice woman. I think she...

Per Robert Salonga of the Mercury News, a portion of the 49ers' donation will go toward nationally televised public service announcements meant to ease tension between law enforcement and those who fear police violence.

    According to a new national Politico/Morning Consult survey, 2016 election buyers' remorse is more prevalent among Hillary Clinton's voters than those who cast ballots for President Trump.
