    Prosecutors are calling on all victims to come forwardProsecutors are working to uncover the breadth of a fake gold bar scam allegedly carried out by two Bend teenagers, which investigators say included selling fake Rolex watches on eBay.

    The College Fix ^ | 05/05/2017 | Dave Huber
    An Idaho high school had altered the traditional boys vs. girls competitions for its spirit week in order to be accommodating to its “gender variant” students, but the change still ended up causing a big controversy. The Twin Falls High School student council altered the activities’ monikers to “blue vs. pink,” but apparently there’s little substantive difference between the traditional gender colors … and the genders themselves. According to MagicValley.com, a group of students — “including some who are transgender” — complained of harassment and say they felt targeted after wearing purple shirts to school instead of blue or pink....

    SOUTH ORANGE -- Police plan to boost patrols after officers from several departments were needed to disperse at least 300 young people who gathered in downtown South Orange late Saturday, sparking fights and blocking traffic.

The unruly crowd formed around 8 p.m. and kept officers busy until around midnight, according to police. Kroll said he requested assistance from the Essex County Sheriff's Office, Maplewood and Orange...

    Zach Ruff is an assistant principal in Downington, Pennsylvania and he really doesn’t like people who are pro-life, or Christian. Like, not at all. On Wednesday, one of Ruff’s students, 16-year old Conner Haines, decided to express his opinion that abortion was wrong on the PUBLIC sidewalk that runs in front of his High School. Conner was joined by his 19-year old sister and the two held pro-life signs while telling passers-by that abortion was a murder but that they could find forgiveness in Jesus. Soon after they began their completely legal demonstration, Ruff appeared and the situation immediately grew...

    Three South Jersey teens were honored for their honesty after they found thousands of dollars on the ground and returned the money to the school it belonged to. Fabian Villanueva, 14, was walking in Vineland, New Jersey last December when he found a clear envelope holding more than $17,000 in cash and checks behind a fence and covered with leaves outside of a home. “I just panicked,” Fabian said. “I couldn’t believe what I saw.” Fabian, a freshman at Cumberland County Technical Education Center, showed the money to his older brother Nichael Villanueva and his friend Christopher Diaz. “My mom...

Witnesses told police that 40 to 60 juveniles flooded the station, jumped the fare gates and rushed to the second-story train platform. Some of the robbers apparently held open the doors of a Dublin-bound train car while others...

    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..}

    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.

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...
