    An overeager dad dressed in a full-on Buddy the Elf costume — from the 2003 Will Ferrell movie — to pick up his daughter after school, and her mortified reaction was priceless. “Oh, my goodness, it’s Alayna!” Gregory Sumsion shouted at his high-schooler while wearing the yellow and green outfit and curly wig. “I know her! I know her!” he continued as he approached his shocked daughter, who exclaimed, “Why am I related to you?!” as her nearby mother captured the whole thing for TikTok.

I pray he is okay,” Atlanta City Council President Felicia Moore said Monday in a social media post, nearly 48 hours after yet another incident outside a local shopping facility.

    At the end of October, a 73-year-old man was beaten so badly by a group of teenagers in the Dutch city of Arnhem that he later died of his injuries.

The man knew the boy was a minor, authorities say, but there was no evidence that he’d had past sexual contact with underage boys. The man...
