    In the latest incident of anti-gun hysteria to erupt in a school setting, officials overseeing a school district in Alabama have expelled a 16-year-old girl for an entire year because she had a water gun at school. Prior to her yearlong expulsion, the student, Sara Allena "Laney" Nichols, attended Prattville High School Prattville, a town of 35,229 just northwest of Montgomery. [Snip] Nichols and her mother, Tara Herring, say the teen girl did not bring the water gun to school. Instead, the mother and daughter claim, a male classmate gave Nichols the water gun to Nichols "as a joke."...

    CENTRAL ISLIP, Long Island (WABC) -- The four men who were found brutally murdered in a Long Island park Wednesday night have been identified, as their devastated families mourn the loss of their loved ones. Their mutilated bodies were found at the intersection of Lowell Avenue and Clayton Street in Central Islip, and authorities say one of them was so badly disfigured that he could only be identified through a tattoo. The youngest victim was just 16 years old. "He had a plastic bag over his head in order to suffocate him," said Yensi Fuentes, victim's cousin. "And from what...

    Children think it's cool to be transgender and they're trying the self-identity out in droves, claims an Australian psychiatrist. Psychiatrist Stephen Stathis, who runs the gender clinic at Brisbane's Lady Cilento Children's Hospital and is responsible for diagnosing gender dysphoria, reports that “many” youth are “trying out being transgender” in order to stand out. Apparently, declaring oneself “transgender” is trendy. “One said to me, ‘Doctor Steve ... I want to be transgender, it’s the new black,’” Stathis related. {..snip..}

The homeowner was also home, but officials say he was not involved....

The 13-year-old suffered a "more serious" injury to his back, Morrill said.

    ZEBULON Franklin County sheriff’s deputies have charged a teenager with first-degree murder, after the sheriff says he decapitated his mother at their home northeast of Zebulon. Sheriff Kent Winstead told reporters that the teen walked out of the house as a deputy arrived holding his mother’s head in one hand and what appeared to be a large butcher knife in the other. “It was a gruesome scene,” Winstead said. Deputies arrested Oliver Funez, 18. They said the body of his mother, Yesenia Funez Beatriz Machado, was inside the house. Two young siblings, ages about 2 or 3, were home at...

    CHICAGO -- Teen suicide attempts in the U.S. declined after same-sex marriage became legal and the biggest impact was among gay, lesbian and bisexual kids, a study found. The research found declines in states that passed laws allowing gays to marry before the Supreme Court made it legal nationwide. The results don't prove there's a connection, but researchers said policymakers should be aware of the measures' potential benefits for youth mental health.

    Full title:Teens behind racist graffiti sentenced to visit Holocaust Museum, read books by black and Jewish authorsWhen five boys spray-painted a historic black school in Ashburn, Va., with swastikas, “WHITE POWER” and vulgar images, they were motivated more by teenage naivete than by racial hatred, a Loudoun County prosecutor concluded. Three of the boys are minorities themselves, and one also marked the walls with “BROWN POWER.” None had previous troubles with the law. So Deputy Commonwealth’s Attorney Alex Rueda prepared an unusual sentence recommendation meant to educate them on the meaning of hate speech in the hope that they come...

    A recent (and first of its kind) study verifies again what many Christians have long warned about the homosexual lifestyle. Published in August of 2016 by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the study—"Sexual Identity, Sex of Sexual Contacts, and Health Related Behaviors Among Students in Grades 9-12"—looked at a wide variety of risky behaviors among U.S. high school students. .. In almost every instance, the risky behavior measured—especially behaviors that are often linked to a moral decision—was much more prevalent among teenagers engaging in homosexual activity. In addition, and unsurprisingly, those students with the healthiest outcomes...

    All four suspects in the Chicago torture video now face charges of aggravated battery, hate crimes and kidnapping. See Jordon, Tesfaye, Brittany and Tanishia. See the crime they committed. See how swift justice is dispensed when the perpetrators, rather than the victims, are black. I’m having such a hard time trying to compartmentalize my feelings about the videotaped torture of this precious young man. Let me tell you why.

    Another day. And the news marches on. Runs forward almost, into the next drama. A shooting in a Fort Lauderdale airport. Carrie Fisher's ashes carried in a giant Prozac-shaped jar. Trump's 12 days from moving into the White House. We turn the pages quickly on the stories of life, anxious not to get left behind. But the real people, people whose lives only fascinated us for an instant, whose stories grabbed us for a moment, good and bad - they are still living their story, their nightmare.

    Navy veteran Jerry Wayne Pino died on Dec. 12th in Long Beach, Mississippi. He was 70 years old. We don’t know that much about Jerry. He was born in Baton Rouge and joined the Navy in New Orleans. He was a petty officer third class in Vietnam. That’s the extent of his biography. No family. No friends. He died alone. Jerry’s body lay unclaimed for several weeks at Riemann Family Funeral Homes. “No one stepped forward,” funeral home worker Cathy Warden told me. “He just didn’t have any family.” Miss Cathy explained the situation to her colleague Eva Boomer and...

    Where is Obama with all of the mall terrorism going on? Someone has apparently orchestrated a dry run on hurting and/or killing a lot of shoppers at a mall and there is silence from the White House? Where is the head of the FBI? Why isn't Comey coming out and saying they are going to find out who has violated the Rico Statute and organized a low-level terror run on the malls causing a lot of shoppers to injure themselves? Where are the leaders to condemn this and promise to put a halt to it? What about Michael Moore? Why...

    Massive brawls and food-court fights played out at more than a dozen malls across the country in what proved to be a chaotic day after Christmas. Some of the mayhem was captured on social media. The chaos prevented some shoppers from grabbing clothes off clearance racks and returning gifts. The mall incidents, which ranged from minor melees to mass evacuations, occurred from Colorado to Tennessee and Texas to New Jersey. Police in some cities are investigating the role social media may have played in organizing the disturbances. The motive behind the mall brawls is not yet known. Here's what happened...

    Three teenage boys were arrested after a large crowd of juveniles caused a disturbance Tuesday evening at the Philadelphia Mills mall in Northeast Philadelphia, police said. It was the second night in a row that rowdy teens caused trouble at the mall, said Chief Inspector Scott Small. And it appeared they were using the social media service Snapchat to plan their convergences, he said. No one was injured. Police and mall security met Tuesday morning to prepare a detail in anticipation of further incidents this week because the juveniles have the week off from school, Small said. About 6:45 p.m.,...
