  • Elderly Witch Saved From Execution in 1880 by Teacher | Only in Oklahoma

    04/14/2024 12:33:40 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 23 replies
    The middle of Oklahoma is a long way from Salem, Mass., and it had been more than 200 years since the witch trials. But an elderly Seminole Indian woman was condemned to death as a sorceress in Wewoka in 1880 and came within two hours of facing a firing squad. She had been accused of causing a long-sick woman to choke to death -- by blowing on a piece of bread given to the ill victim, who tried to eat it. The story of the Oklahoma witchcraft case was told in the 1923 memoirs of former mission teacher Antoinette C....

A convoy of 20 police vehicles, including SWAT trucks, was spotted traveling swiftly along a dirt track in the Oklahoma panhandle on Saturday. The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation announced the arrests shortly after, saying there was evidence to indicate foul play. Among the four arrested people are Tifany Adams, 54, the children's grandmother and Adams' boyfriend, Tad Cullum, 43, according to NewsNation. The other two arrested...

    It may seem like a surprise to many that there could be a confrontation between Chinese gangsters at a marijuana farm on the Oklahoma prairie.But it is a reality that has been commonplace in Oklahoma since legislators opened the state up to the medicalmarijuana business. As of January 2022, there hadn't been widely reported cases of Chinese gangsters specifically involved in the Oklahoma marijuana business. However, it's important to note that organized crime groups often exploit vulnerabilities in various industries, including the cannabis market. Here are some ways in which organized crime groups, including those with Chinese connections, might become...

    An Oklahoma district attorney declined to file charges in connection with the death of nonbinary teenager Nex Benedict, officials said Thursday. Benedict, a 16-year-old student at Owasso High School near Tulsa, died by suicide on Feb. 8, one day after a fight in a high school bathroom. "Based upon the investigation of the Owasso Police Department, I am in agreement with their assessment that the filing of juvenile charges is not warranted," Tulsa County District Attorney Stephen A. Kunzweiler said in a statement. "From all of the evidence gathered, this fight was an instance of mutual combat," Kunzweiler wrote.

    The photo of Judd Blevins was unmistakable. In it, Blevins, bearded and heavyset, held a tiki torch on the University of Virginia campus, on the eve of Unite the Right, a 2017 coming-together of the nation’s neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups. Connie Vickers had found the photo online along with others showing Blevins marching alongside an angry mob — a crowd of men recorded throughout the night spitting and shouting “Jews will not replace us!” Vickers had it enlarged at a local print and copy shop. On a January night in 2023, she and Nancy Presnall, best friends, retirees and...

    The death of a nonbinary teen who collapsed a day after an altercation at a high school in Owasso, Okla., has been ruled a suicide, according to a one-page summary report released Wednesday by the state’s chief medical examiner. Nex Benedict’s death last month triggered vigils not only in that Tulsa suburb but across the country because the sophomore, who used they/them pronouns, had told family that other students were bullying them in school. The fight happened Feb. 7. The 16-year-old collapsed at home the next morning and died within hours at a Tulsa hospital. The medical examiner’s report said...

    Oklahoma non-binary Nex Benedict died by suicide from a drug overdose, not from injuries sustained in a school fight, a medical examiner has confirmed. The Oklahoma Medical Examiner's report said Benedict's death was caused by a combined overdose of Diphenhydramine and Fluoxetine, according to News On 6. Nex, 16, who was born Dagny, died on February 8, just a day after sustaining head trauma in a bathroom fight in Owasso High School, Oklahoma. Their death became a rallying point for trans and LGBT activists across the country - and several vigils and walk-outs were organized to remember the student. Nex's...

Deer Creek High School in Edmond has admitted it 'failed to uphold the dignity of our students' over the grotesque competition held February 29.

    The Department of Education is opening an investigation into whether the Oklahoma school district where the late 16-year-old transgender student Nex Benedict attended high school failed to appropriately respond to sex-based harassment, according to a letter obtained by NBC News on Friday. The letter was addressed to the Human Rights Campaign, the country's largest LGBTQ rights group, which had filed a complaint with the department following Benedict's Feb. 8 death. Benedict died a day after engaging in a fight with three other students in a school bathroom at Owasso High School, in a case that has drawn intense media attention...

    An Oklahoma high school is facing a major backlash after high school students took part in a vile 'toe-licking' challenge for a fundraising event.

Students had to pay to attend the assembly and freshmen through seniors volunteered to participate in a series of class competitions. One of the challenges involved a 'toe-licking' contest, during which students sucked and licked other students' bare feet. The...

    Oklahoma schools have been in the news quite a bit recently and for all the wrong reasons. A few weeks ago, a drag queen principal at an ELEMENTARY SCHOOL was forced to resign, as the media tried to cover up his past which included child pornography charges. Then activists on the left tried to blame Oklahoma State School Superintendant Ryan Walters and Libs of TikTok's Chaya Raichik for the death of 'Nex' Benedict, even though the autopsy showed that she did not die from trauma due to a school fight. In fact, it turns out, it was Benedict herself who...

I was kind of disgusted, and then kind of glad I wasn't over there." "Whenever she told me yesterday that was happening, I had to ask her, 'Wait, what? They're licking peanut butter off...

    Oklahoma’s public schools chief has blasted “radical leftists” for exploiting the death 16-year-old nonbinary student Nex Benedict — while stating that he does not believe anyone is really transgender or nonbinary. Superintendent of Public Instruction Ryan Walters spoke out after many online continue to suggest the student’s death is linked to a fight in a school bathroom a day earlier, despite police and school officials saying Benedict’s death appears unrelated. “I think it’s terrible that we’ve had some radical leftists who decided to run with a political agenda and try to weave a narrative that hasn’t been true,” Walters told...
