Woman Arrested For $6,400 Sausage Heist



Texas – A woman was arrested yesterday for stealing more than $6,400 worth of sausage from the Kiolbassa Provision Company, a San Antonio firm that has been smoking meat since 1949.

According to an arrest affidavit, Regina Shaw, 45, was linked to the September 14 theft via surveillance footage that recorded her taking a “pallet of meat product” from the purveyor.

Shaw, who worked for the firm, was charged with felony theft and booked into the Bexar County jail. She was subsequently released on $5000 bond.

As detailed by a San Antonio Police Department detective, Shaw allegedly fenced a portion of the meat through a man who “purchased some boxes of Kiolbassa sausage” from her. More

Darren Wilson’s friends demand that ‘star’ witness in Michael Brown case be charged with perjury for his ‘hands up, don’t shoot lie’



Missouri – Close friends of Darren Wilson have called for the star witness in the Michael Brown shooting to be charged for lying about what he saw.

Two of the Ferguson police officer’s best friends told MailOnline that Dorian Johnson (picture) – who was next to Brown at the time – should be arrested for his statements in numerous TV interviews he made days afterwards.

They say that he made up the claim that Brown had his hands up which kickstarted the ‘Hands up, don’t shoot’ protest movement.

For his part Johnson told the grand jury that the whole process has left him feeling ‘victimized’. More

Michael Hanline, wrongly convicted in 1978 killing, freed



When he first stepped outside, Michael Hanline looked up at the sky as if for the first time.

Wearing a dark sweatshirt with "XONER8" across the front, his white hair pulled into a ponytail and a cane in hand, California's longest-serving wrongfully convicted inmate walked out of jail Monday a free man.

His wife, Sandee, had brought him his cowboy boots, which she had kept clean and shiny over the last three decades, but they would not fit over his GPS ankle bracelet. Instead, he wore white sneakers.

But in addition to DNA evidence that didn't match, several sealed police reports were uncovered that cast doubt on testimony by Hanline's then-girlfriend, Mary Bischoff, who was granted immunity and was a key witness during the trial. More

Michael Brown’s Family Church Burned Down – Pastor: Whites Did



Ferguson – The Rev. Carlton Lee told NBC News that he believes Flood Christian Church was targeted because he has repeatedly called for the arrest of Officer Darren Wilson, who fatally shot the unarmed teen but was not indicted by a grand jury.

“I’m very vocal in regards to the Michael Brown case,” said Lee, who has participated in rallies and press conferences with Michael Brown Sr.

The church went up in flames around the same time about a dozen other buildings were set ablaze in Ferguson by protesters angered by the grand jury’s decision, but it’s on a remote section of West Florissant Avenue where other structures were unscathed.

The pastor said he doubted the same people who were raging on the other end of West Florissant had burned his church. Instead, he said, he suspected white supremacists who wanted to punish him for his support of the Brown family, who had just been baptized there. More

Ferguson Protesters Throw Rocks, Bottles of Urine at Police



FERGUSON, Missouri – National Guard reinforcements helped contain the latest protests in Ferguson, preventing a second night of the chaos that led to arson and looting after a grand jury decided not to indict the police officer who killed Michael Brown.

Demonstrators returned Tuesday to the riot-scarred streets.

But with hundreds of additional troops standing watch over neighborhoods and businesses, the protests had far less destructive power than the previous night.

However, officers still used some tear gas and pepper spray, and demonstrators set a squad car on fire and broke windows at City Hall. More

Ferguson Witness: Michael Brown Charged Cop “Like a Football Player. Head Down”



Missouri – Included in the grand jury material released after the announcement that no charges would be filed in the Michael Brown killing is a handwritten witness account stating that the teenager charged at Officer Darren Wilson “like a football player. Head down.”

The unidentified witness wrote that the 18-year-old Brown “has his arms out with attitude,” while “The cop just stood there.” The witness added, “Dang if that kid didn’t start running right at the cop like a football player. Head down.”

The witness told of hearing “3 bangs,” but “the big kid wouldn’t stop.”

The witness’s account of the unarmed Brown charging Wilson–even after he had been shot in the hand during a struggle at the cop’s patrol car–supports the officer’s contention that he fired a series of shots as Brown bore down on him. More

Protesters burn and loot their own town



Missouri – There were 29 arrests made after protesters fired more than 100 gunshots, burned and looted as many as 25 buildings and vandalized police cars in Ferguson, Mo. after a grand jury did not indict a police officer who shot and killed an unarmed black teenager in August, St. Louis Unified Command said in a press conference Tuesday morning.

Heavily armed police fired pepper spray and smoke canisters to disperse the crowds of protesters. Police seized a .45 mm automatic handgun as well.

“We have no loss of life, but I am disappointed the night turned out this way,” St. Louis Police Department Chief Jon Belmar said.

Belmar said he heard more than 150 shots ring off in the night. More

NO CHARGES: Grand jury does not indict officer in Ferguson shooting case, violence, looting



Missouri - A grand jury declined to indict the Ferguson police officer on Monday who shot and killed an unarmed black teenager in August in a case that touched off nationwide protests and cries of police brutality.

Almost immediately, the decision ignited protests in the Missouri city, as demonstrators clashed with police. Gunshots were reported near the Ferguson Police Department, and authorities used smoke and pepper spray to disperse crowds near the building after some protesters smashed the windows of a police car and threw rocks and other items at authorities. Looters were visible inside at least one Ferguson store.

It was not immediately clear if there were any injuries or if anyone had been arrested.

St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch announced the decision not to indict Darren Wilson on Monday evening. A grand jury of nine whites and three blacks had been meeting weekly since Aug. 20 to consider evidence in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, 18. The panel met for 70 hours and heard from 60 witnesses. More

Florida dad fights wife, courts to keep daughter from alleged abuser



Florida – A Florida father is nearly out of options in his desperate effort to protect his 8-year-old daughter from her 17-year-old half-brother, who he claims to have witnessed sexually assaulting her — yet who still regularly visits the girl in their mother’s home.

“It was the most horrific thing I had ever witnessed in my life,” Carl Sumner, of Boca Raton, told FoxNews.com, adding that he sought treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder after the incident. “There’s no question as to what happened to my daughter and when it happened. I saw it. I heard her crying.”

Sumner, 55, said he was preparing dinner in March 2010 when he heard his then 4-year-old daughter crying inside a bedroom at the family’s home.

When he opened the door, Sumner claims, he witnessed the girl’s 12-year-old half-brother sexually assaulting the child, who was naked from the waist down and screaming. His estranged wife, who is the mother of both children and has custody of the girl, does not dispute that sexual abuse occurred. More
