    Why would you even go to the drive-thru when the drive-thru can come to you? Chick-fil-A. Its customer service humans are said to be exemplars of fine behavior. Yet here is the chain announcing that it's experimenting with robotic delivery. Specifically, the Kiwibot 4.0. The chain told Restaurant Business that Santa Monica -- already a paradise of indolence -- is now being blessed with Chick-fil-A Kiwibot robots that bring your chicken sandwich to you. Because why would you want to stand in line for, say, 10 minutes at a Chick-fil-A when a robot can bring you your order in, oh,...

    The U.S. Marshals Service announced the results of 'Operation Not Forgotten' on Thursday. For two weeks in August, U.S. Marshals and other agencies searched the areas around Atlanta and Macon, Georgia, looking for missing and exploited children. As a result, they recovered 26 children and found 13 others who had been missing. Investigators say these children were considered to be some of the most at-risk and challenging recovery cases in the area.

    Since President Donald Trump took office, his administration has secured the release of 17 prisoners foreign governments had detained. “We’ve had 17 released, and we’re very proud of that record. Very proud. And we have others coming,” Trump said Saturday evening as he welcomed home Joshua Holt, an American citizen who had been detained in Venezuela for two years without trial. Unlike his predecessor, the president has managed to bring these prisoners home without freeing terrorists or paying millions of dollars in suspected ransom payments. 1.

    A man was found beaten and bound in the basement of a Bronx bodega when two cops who were chasing separate suspects entered the cellar early Wednesday morning, police said.

The officers freed the man, who then told them he had been kidnapped three days prior by four people on a Bronx street corner, police said. The victim — who sources said has a lengthy arrest record — said the four suspects forced him into...

    It began when a Central American migrant was interviewed on video, threatening to shoot Mexicans who are protesting against the caravan. It is unclear where this took place but most likely in Tijuana Mexico, near the POE with the United States. He threatened to shoot Mexicans that interfered, saying, “If they want violence, that is what they will see. What are 30 a$$holes going to do against 30k migrants?” he asked. He is heard about next in a video posted on social media after he is kidnapped and is being tortured

    It’s been 25 days since Jayme Closs disappeared, and her parents were killed... They are focused on forensic testing. For the last week, Wisconsin’s crime lab has tested 40 pieces of potential evidence a day. “As of now we just don’t have any good physical evidence either which is another frustrating part of this case,” Sheriff Fitzgerald said. That includes already 80 pieces of separate videos or pictures from homes and businesses along Highway 8 from that night. Investigators have also kept a close eye on social media. As Facebook groups pop up, Fitzgerald says investigators check every post.

    ed kidnapping of British model Chloe Ayling in Italy has become more complicated after it was revealed that she was seen shopping with her alleged captor during the period she was supposedly being held hostage. Ayling's Italian attorney, Francesco Pesce, told reporters that the 20-year-old woman feared for her life and went on the shopping trip after deciding it would be better to cooperate with her captor. "She thought the best idea was to go along with it and be nice to her captor," Pesce told the BBC. "He told her he wanted to release her somehow and some time."...

    Kidnapped, enslaved, beat, and indoctrinated in the name of jihad… Past and present, Muslim militants continue relying on the same inhumane tactics to terrorize “infidels.” The devastating effects of one of these occurred last August in Turkey: a child “recruited” by the Islamic State blew himself up in a suicide attack that left at least 51 people—mostly fellow children—dead. This child was one of countless, nameless, faceless children seized, beat, and indoctrinated in Islam, until they become willing “martyrs” and executioners. Known as the “cubs of the caliphate,” they are graduates from “schools [established by ISIS] to prepare hundreds of...

    CHICAGO — The police here were questioning four people on Wednesday as video circulated online showing a white teenager tied up and beaten as a group of young African-Americans shouted antiwhite messages and insulted President-elect Donald J. Trump. “It’s sickening,” Superintendent Eddie Johnson of the Chicago Police Department said. “It makes you wonder, what would make individuals treat somebody like that?” The police said the victim was an 18-year-old man from suburban Chicago who had “mental health challenges” and who had been reported missing. Officers spotted him on Tuesday in a violent neighborhood on Chicago’s West Side and recognized that...

    Al-Aribiya is reporting that three Americans have been kidnapped by militia in Baghdad. ***snip*** Via The Independent: According to Arab news channel Al-Arabiya, well-informed sources in Baghdad have confirmed that the kidnapping took place, although the story is yet to be verified. The identities of the kidnapped Americans or the militias have not yet been confirmed. It seems that Iran has revalidated a long-standing business model used in that part of the world for a few thousand years: kidnap for ransom. It seems much more than a coincidence that after the United States gave up seven prisoners doing time for...
