    The 24-year-old man who threw a boy over a third-floor balcony at the Mall of America in April is appealing his conviction. On April 12, Emmanuel Aranda said he went to the mall intent on killing someone. According to the criminal complaint, he told investigators that he was angry for the way women at the mall rebuffed his attempt to talk. Unable to find an adult victim, he chose instead to grab the 5-year-old boy named Landen and throw him over a third floor railing, 40 feet to the concrete floor below. The child suffered numerous broken bones, head trauma...

    The man who pleaded guilty to throwing a 5-year-old boy from a third-floor balcony at the Mall of America in April received a sentence of 228 months (19 years) Monday morning. Two-thirds of that sentence must be spent in prison. Emmanuel Aranda, 24, was charged with attempted premeditated first-degree murder. During a hearing, Aranda said he knew throwing the child over the balcony could kill him. Aranda agreed to a plea deal in the case roughly three weeks ago. Through statements read in court, the family of 5-year-old Landen, who is still recovering, had a chance to address Aranda prior...

    The doctors who’ve been treating the little boy who was thrown over a third-floor railing at Minnesota’s Mall of America on April 12 are apparently astonished by how well the child is recovering. Mac Hammond, a pastor from the boy’s family’s church, said the child, named Landen, endured a five-hour MRI last week, which showed his injuries were not as bad as originally thought. Hammond told his parish Sunday that one of Landen’s doctors commented that the shape the boy is in, given what happened to him, is “truly a miracle.” According to Hammond, the medical team said Landen’s injuries...

    The five-year-old boy thrown from the third floor of the Mall of America is amazing his doctors. According to Mac Hammond, a pastor at the family's church, the boy recently underwent a five-hour MRI test. FOX 9 obtained a video of Pastor Hammond's Easter service in which he provides an update on the boy's condition. "There was zero evidence of brain damage - there wasn't even swelling," Hammond said. "No spinal chord injury, no nerve damage, no internal injuries that were life-threatening." Hammond said that the boy did suffer several broken bones. The pastor also said a doctor compared the...

    Photos of the 5-year-old child named Landen who was flung from the balcony of the Mall of America have surfaced. The attacker, Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda, is a black man, and the child who was critically injured and fighting for his life is white. But interestingly the news media has not reported on the race of the attacker and the victim and has not labeled it a hate crime. Jussie Smollett fabricated a hate crime and the news media was on it day and night until he was exposed as a hoaxster. Aranda is now is prison on charges of attempted...

    Cuba's Useful Idiot By Humberto Fontova FrontPageMagazine.com | 4/16/2008 Last month Dan Rather’s new gig as host of HDNET's “Dan Rather Reports” found him, as so often during his CBS days, “reporting” from Cuba. From Dan we heard of “dramatic changes” down there, of a “remarkable transformation.” “The door (to the U.S.) is open, “explained Dan. “The best time to talk is now.” Dan was chanting a familiar tune, one we've heard almost nonstop from the MSM's pet “Cuba Experts'” for the past 21 months. As usual when dealing with Cuban matters, a sober look behind the carefully constructed and...

    "We called the White House and they acted swiftly on the Friday event, which has since been postponed," said a staff member for Republican Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who complained that the event would have openly undermined President Donald Trump’s agenda on Cuba."The event in question has been postponed," a State Department official confirmed."This (event) was designed to embarrass the president and Pompeo—somebody needs to be held to account," one source said. "The fact that State Department officials were advancing a program that is so slanted and completely at odds with the president's directive on Cuba, I am concerned what...

    A Minnesota mom got the Christmas present of her dreams Friday when she was surprised by her soldier son at Mall of America. The ruse had been in the works for months. "I just keep telling her that I'm not going to be home until February," Army Pfc. Tim Hofmann said moments before the surprise. He said it was all his dad's idea, adding, "I don't know how she's going to react really." Josephine Hofmann thought she was coming to Mall of America for a head to toe makeover and an overnight stay at Radisson Blu, because she's part of...
