  • 'Street justice' | Police share that child rapist was killed, closing 45-year cold case

    06/13/2024 6:58:39 AM PDT · by Red Badger · 21 replies ^ | June 10, 2024 | Riley Mack
    GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Grand Rapids Police closed a 45-year-old cold case Monday. It was all thanks to one woman. Tommie Lee Hill was convicted of a string of sex crimes in Michigan and Indiana, and detectives spoke with other victims in Pennsylvania. Officials said his crimes include raping his young stepdaughters, assault with intent to murder, burglary, firearms and counterfeiting. He was on the run for 37 years. Joe Garrett, a Grand Rapids Police officer and U.S. Marshals Service fugitive task force member, first began investigating Hill's case in 2017. The FBI had handled it previously. In the 1960s,...
  • Indiana Sees Incredible 98% Drop in Abortions Thanks to Abortion Ban

    The Indiana Department of Health’s recent report revealed a 98% decrease in abortions in the state of Indiana. The report detailed 45 abortions during the first 2024 quarter, a tremendous reform compared to the 1,931 abortions committed in the first quarter of 2023. This means 1,886 babies are alive in Indiana who may not have been at this time last year. These are encouraging numbers. But Indiana’s abortion industry is actively threatening the laws that made this victory possible. The same day the Indiana Department of Health released its report, Planned Parenthood argued in court to challenge Indiana’s Pro-Life laws....
  • A swimming pool in … an NFL stadium? Welcome to U.S. Olympic trials

    The temporary pools came from northern Italy. The two million gallons of water came from a fire hydrant on South Capitol Ave., via 6,000 feet of piping that snakes through an NFL stadium. The swimmers will come from all over the United States, and step onstage near what’s usually the 45-yard line. And from June 15-23 in Indianapolis, they’ll take part in a grand, unprecedented experiment — all while trying to qualify for the Olympics. It’s “crazy,” Bobby Finke, a 2021 gold medalist, said of the plan for this year’s U.S. Olympic swimming trials — crazy in a good way....
  • 10,000 human remains found on serial killer’s farm — and authorities are still identifying victims (Indiana)

    For years, a peaceful, million-dollar farm in Indiana hid a dark secret: It was a serial killer’s playground. When cops finally raided Herb Baumeister’s 18-acre property in Westfield, north of Indianapolis, they uncovered some 10,000 pieces of human remains — mostly crushed and burned skeletal fragments of the teenage boys and young men whom he had abducted and murdered in the 1980s and ’90s. Nearly 30 years after Baumeister killed himself while on the run from police, authorities are still sifting through the remains and identifying victims.

    FIRST ON FOX: Former Vice President Mike Pence reacted on Friday to the criminal conviction of former President Donald Trump in a New York City courtroom and said a "terrible message" has been sent. "The conviction of former President Trump on politically motivated charges is an outrage and disservice to the nation," Pence told Fox News Digital. "No one is above the law, but our courts must not become a tool to be used against political opponents," Pence continued. "To millions of Americans, this was nothing more than a political prosecution driven by a Manhattan DA who ran for office...
  • Pete Buttigieg Makes Ridiculous Claim about EVs, CBS Host Laughs in His Face – WATCH

    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg attempted to justify the progress on electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, prompting a laugh from CBS’s “Face the Nation” host Margaret Brenna. After $7.5 billion of taxpayers’ money being plowed into the initiative, just a “handful” of charging stations have been built. The interview took a comedic turn when Brennan pointed out the discrepancy between the investment made back in 2021 and the reality of the results. Just seven or eight charging stations have been built despite billions being spent, according to the Federal Highway Administration, “Why isn’t that happening more quickly?” asked Brennan. Buttigieg responded...

    A gunman has filmed himself opening fire in a supermarket after hunting around the store for 'someone good' - and failing to hit them. Richard Klaff, 20, broadcast the shooting live on Facebook as he prepared for and carried out the attack on a Kroger in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He began about 6.15pm on Thursday by lighting up a cigar in a bathroom upstairs from the Georgetown Kroger, claiming 'I'm gonna shoot 11 people... watch'. He cocked the pistol several times before heading downstairs and wandering around the supermarket looking for the right target. 'Which one am I gonna choose?...
  • Are burritos and tacos considered sandwiches? Judge makes polarizing decree

    That’s a wrap. An Indiana judge has seemingly settled the highly-disputed sandwich definition debate after ruling that tacos and burritos fit the bill during a recent legal case. “Tacos and burritos are Mexican-style sandwiches,” hero-ic Allen Superior Judge Craig J. Bobay declared in the ruling, per a court document blowing up online. The wrap battle was sparked in 2022 after restaurateur Martin Quintana unveiled plans to open his restaurant The Famous Taco Mexican Grill in the 11,000-square-foot Quintana strip mall in Fort Wayne, CBS 4 reported. The Allen County Planning commission rejected his bid based on a prior “written commitment”...

    A 10-year-old boy in Indiana killed himself after a two-year bullying campaign which his parents claim his school failed to stop, despite contacting school officials 20 times in a year.

    A federal judge has struck down an Indiana law which had prohibited health care providers from giving information to minors about how to obtain an abortion out-of-state without parental consent. Known as the “aid-or-assist statute,” the law protected minors from being coerced into abortions, especially without parental consent. The legislation was challenged by Planned Parenthood Great Northwest, Hawaii, Alaska, Indiana, Kentucky Inc. (PPGNHAIK) in a push for more abortion — even if minors are at risk. U.S. District Court Judge Sarah Barker sided with PPGNHAIK, saying that the law would violate the First Amendment if enforced against the health care...

    A pro-life organization is suing the Indiana Department of Health, saying that the agency’s decision to no longer release abortion records is shielding abortion businesses from public accountability. The organization Voices for Life filed the public complaint in Marion County Superior Court against the Indiana Department of Health and State Health Commissioner Dr. Lindsay Weaver on May 1. Represented by the Thomas More Society, Voices for Life contends that the health department’s refusal to release abortion records is violating the state’s own Access to Public Records Act. According to its press release, Voices for Life has been reviewing abortion records...

    Having a discussion with Mark Messmer candidate for 8th Congressional District on FB. The issue at hand is his voting record concerning illegal immigrants in Indiana. 1st issue is his support of a "Driver's Card" for illegals which died in commitee and therefore produces no voteing record. The 2nd issue is SB 135 in the year 2022 concerning in-state tuition for illegals at State Schools. The record I found at "Smart" says he voted NAY, however a FOX NEWS report says he co-sponsered the bill. Does anyone have the facts on these two bills?

    WASHINGTON — Twenty years after George W. Bush won re-election with the help of ballot initiatives that rallied voters around a popular cultural issue, Democrats are dusting off his playbook and attempting a similar strategy to keep Donald Trump out of office. In 2004, Bush’s team seized on popular opposition to same-sex marriage, with strategist Karl Rove encouraging allies to put initiatives to ban it on ballots in key swing states, hoping to stir up voters and enable the president to ride the measures’ coattails to re-election. It worked. Now, President Joe Biden’s allies are seizing on fury over the...
