    A day after a career criminal was arrested in the fatal shooting of philanthropist Jacqueline Avant at the lavish Beverly Hills home she shared with her husband Clarence, a 90-year-old music producer inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year, her family issued a statement that read in part, “Now, let justice be served.” But in Los Angeles, where left-wing lawmakers and activists have pushed a litany of progressive reforms that help violent criminals spend less-time behind bars, justice is not only fleeting — it’s twisted, critics say.

    Instagram is still plagued with disturbing eating disorder images that appear to violate the photo app’s rules — months after parent company Meta claimed it was cracking down. Despite a rash of bad press and Congressional scrutiny around the app’s toxic effects on teens, recent searches on Instagram have revealed accounts with names like “theprettiestareskinniest” and “be_skinnyb—ch” that feature images of emaciated bodies and which appear to encourage eating disorders, an investigation by The Post reveals.

    A 22-year-old University of New Hampshire student was found dead Sunday afternoon in a marshy area near the campus after he was reported missing a day earlier, authorities said. Vincenzo Lirosi disappeared after a night of drinking, police said, and he was last seen early Saturday morning shortly after leaving a fraternity party where he reportedly got into a fight, a pal of his, Jordan Blanchard, told WMUR-TV. “It’s pretty uncharacteristic of him,” Blanchard told the news station. “This is his first fight ever.”

    Amid a surge in some New York City violent crime, Wall Street bigwigs continue to encourage younger staffers to come into the office — but to do so with caution. At Bank of America, senior executives have quietly encouraged younger employees to “dress down” to attract less attention as they make their way to B of A’s tower at 1 Bryant Park. These execs have told their staffers that dressing up, or wearing anything with a Bank of America logo, could make them a target. One bank employee told On The Money he is on high alert after he spotted...

    Chris Cuomo could return to CNN as early as next month following his suspension for secretly helping his brother, former Gov. Andrew Cuomo, try to counter the sexual harassment scandal that made him quit, the network’s chief media correspondent predicted. During an appearance on CNN’s “New Day” program Wednesday, Brian Stelter said it was a “complicated situation” because despite widespread outrage, “a lot of viewers … love Chris Cuomo and they want to see him back on the air.” “I think the bottom line is, [Chris] Cuomo is on the bench for now,” he said.

    LeBron James, who is in the NBA’s health and safety protocols, thinks something fishy is going on. While it has not been confirmed that James tested positive for COVID-19, ESPN.com reported that the Lakers star is expected to miss several games. James has thus far declined to elaborate on what exactly he thinks is fishy, but he used just about every fish emoji available to man in a Wednesday tweet to illustrate his point. The Lakers played without James on Tuesday night and rallied to beat the Kings, 117-92. “He said he’s good,” Anthony Davis said after the game in...

    The Michigan school shooting suspect allegedly posted a picture of the semi-automatic handgun used in the massacre on social media before he opened fire on classmates and teachers at Oxford High School, according to the local sheriff. “It’s my understanding, again, that this was a recent weapon purchase,” Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said Tuesday night about the 9mm Sig Sauer SP 2022 pistol the suspect’s father bought on Black Friday. “He had been shooting with it and posted pictures of a target and the weapon. That’s all part of what’s being looked at. We’re going to do a deep...

    Former President Donald Trump has denied claims by his last White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows, that Trump tested positive for COVID-19 shortly before his first debate with Joe Biden last year. “The story of me having COVID prior to, or during, the first debate is Fake News,” Trump said Wednesday in a statement released by his Save America PAC. “In fact, a test revealed that I did not have COVID prior to the debate.” Meadows makes the claim in his forthcoming book “The Chief’s Chief,” which recounts his time in the Trump administration and is due out next...

    Miss USA has been running since 1952 and has traditionally been a celebration of thin, mostly white, able-bodied women — but this year’s pageant was noted for the diversity of its contestants. Organizers of the proudly progressive contest have been actively pushing to make it more inclusive, according to NBC. The event was dubbed “Pageantry Reimagined,” and featured just nine blonde contestants.

Authorities responded to reports of an active shooting at Oxford High School at 12:55 p.m., according to local media reports. The shooter was detained at the scene in Oxford, about 30 miles north of Detroit, the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office said. Between four and six people were injured in the shooting. It is unclear if the victims were shot or suffered other injuries in the ordeal.

    While former President Donald Trump has yet to formally announce a 2024 White House bid, he’s already stoking speculation about potential running mates — all of whom, he claims, are “begging” to be on the ticket, according to a new report. Politico, citing interviews with a dozen Trump advisers and associates, reported that the 45th president will largely choose his campaign sidekick based on two factors: unconditional loyalty, and support for Trump’s claim that the 2020 election was stolen by the Democrats. “They’ll have to denounce what happened in 2020,” former Trump campaign staffer Michael Caputo told the outlet. “If...

    Vandals broke into Rep. Debbie Dingell’s Michigan office, and trashed some items belonging to her deceased husband, the congresswoman said on Monday. Dingell, a Democrat who made headlines for a shouting match with Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on the steps of the Capitol in September, told The Detroit Free Press that a plate glass window and objects on the walls in the Dearborn office were smashed. The office had previously been used by her husband John Dingell, who preceded her in Congress, the newspaper stated. “I’m deeply concerned about the break-in & vandalization of my Dearborn office today,” she...

    Where are the workers? On welfare, which now pays more than work for millions of Americans. A new study by the Foundation for Government Accountability shows that amid the pandemic, available welfare benefits have become so generous that it makes financial sense for many of the unemployed to stay home rather than work. President Joe Biden and Democrats are trying to extend this backward system in the Build Back Better Act. If they do, a generation of families will suffer on the economy’s sidelines. Employers are desperate to fill a near-record high 10.4 million open jobs, and as a result,...

    Ghislaine Maxwell’s defense attorneys on Monday portrayed her as a scapegoat being accused because of “the bad behavior of men,” — one in particular — since prosecutors never had a chance to put late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein on trial. Her lawyer, Bobbi Sternheim, invoked the Bible at the start of her opening statement, arguing that women have been condemned for crimes committed by men since the beginning of time. “Ever since Eve was accused of tempting Adam with the apple,” said Sternheim. “Women have been blamed for the bad behavior of men.” “Ghislaine is on trial here and you heard...

    Authorities searched Marilyn Manson’s West Hollywood home Monday as part of a probe into sexual assault claims, a report said. Manson was not at the home when investigators with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department entered to execute the warrant, according to TMZ, which cited law enforcement sources. Authorities removed “media storage units” from Manson’s home, the report said. A spokeswoman for the sheriff’s office said she was aware of the report, but couldn’t confirm the search or offer any details on Monday night. The “Dope Show” singer, whose real name is Brian Warner, has been hit with assault and...

    Prosecutors asked the US Supreme Court to review the ruling that overturned Bill Cosby’s conviction, arguing in a petition Monday that a decision announced in a press release does not give a defendant lifetime immunity. Prosecutors said the ruling could set a dangerous precedent if convictions are overturned over dubious closed-door deals. They have also complained that the chief judge of the state’s high court appeared to misstate key facts of the case when he discussed the court ruling that overturned Cosby’s conviction in a television interview. “This decision as it stands will have far-reaching negative consequences beyond Montgomery County...

Deputies answering a “rescue responding” call at the home found the grandmother suffering from gunshot wounds to...
