Shoro, who hails from Ethiopia, defended his actions, explaining his presence in the U.S. as a request from God. He claimed he was at the mall to hand out...

Security guards told the man that other shoppers at the Minnesota mall said they were offended by the shirt. “Jesus is associated with religion and it’s offending people,” one of the...

    Animal control officers say it's unclear how the sneaky snake, who they've named Wolverine, ended up at America's favorite supercenter. Maybe it just wanted a snack? Or was looking for a new heated rock to decorate its enclosure? Regardless of how it got there, animal control graciously gave the snake a new place to stay... one that's far away from people shopping for groceries. Wolverine is in the market for a forever home! Wolverine would do best with an experienced snake owner. Animal control said the snake is "a bit stressed and slightly spicy" but is getting used to being...

    President Donald Trump desperately needs us all to know how important the battle against terrorism is to him. He tells us in speeches that he's "working night and day to keep our nation safe from terrorism." He flexes his Twitter fingers after any act of terror allegedly caused by a Muslim person hits nearly anywhere around the globe. But when an act of extremism appears to have been carried out against the Muslim community in the United States, he serves up radio silence. At around 5 a.m. on August 5, a bomb exploded at the Dar Al Farooq Islamic Center...
