• After ‘jealous rage,’ killer sentenced to life without parole in Target parking lot murder

    The eight-foot projection screen dropped from a courtroom ceiling. The surveillance video began to play. And from her seat in the second row, Cassandra Atkens - in court Thursday to watch her daughter’s killer be sentenced - knew what she was about to see. The video showed how light it still was at 7:17 p.m. June 1, 2015, in a Target store parking lot in Germantown where Atkens’s daughter, Mariam “Shadé” Adebayo, had agreed to meet ex-boyfriend Donald Bricker one more time. She was there to tell him it really was over. He pulled up in his truck, then got in her car and brought out a .44-caliber, replica-style black-powder revolver - a gun that he’d ordered online and that had arrived just that

  • 'I'm the victim,' Iowa teacher who had sex with student says on 'Dr. Phil'

    DES MOINES - A substitute teacher accused of having sex with a 17-year-old high school student in Cedar Rapids claims the student seduced her. Mary Beth Haglin was charged in July with sexual exploitation by a teacher. On Monday, she appeared on Dr. Phil, accusing the student of seducing her and sharing sexy photos with his friends. “Many people see him as the victim and me as the perpetrator. From a psychological standpoint and from every other standpoint, I feel like I am the victim,” Haglin said on the Dr. Phil show, citing the student's intelligence and “elevated vocabulary” as part of the seduction. Haglin pleaded not guilty to sexual exploitation by a school employee. Her trial is set to

  • Hillary's Security Detail Hated Her So Much, They Laughed When She Fell and Broke Her Arm

    It's no secret that there is no love lost between Hillary Clinton and her security detail, but the intensity of their dislike for the woman who may become our next president is still a bit jarring. According to the New York Post, members of her diplomatic security detail while she was secretary of state hated her so much that they "privately snickered" after she fell down and broke her arm. The incident happened in the State Department basement in 2009, one of her former guards told the Post. Clinton, then 61, was on her way to meet President Obama when she took a tumble and ended up in the hospital with a shattered right elbow. “We sort of got the last laugh. It was kind of like payback: You’re

  • Donald Trump, Son of a Catholic Hater, Disgraces Al Smith Dinner

    Scripture advises us not to visit the sins of the father upon the son. So nobody should hold it against Donald Trump that his father was arrested on Memorial Day in 1927 for participating in a Klu Klux Klan riot in his home borough of Queens. The riot was fueled in part by the prospect that Al Smith might become not just the Catholic governor of New York but the first Catholic president of the United States. “Americans Assaulted by Roman Catholic Police of New York City” read KKK leaflets that went up in Queens the day after the arrest of Fred Trump and others. But the son has embraced his father’s sins as his own in seeking to become president by stoking that very same kind of bigotry against

  • 34-Year-Old Model Katie May Died From A Stroke-Here’s What You Should Know

    Update Oct. 19, 2016: According to information from the Los Angeles County Coroner released today, the stroke that killed 34-year-old model Katie May in February was caused by "an injury sustained during a 'neck manipulation by chiropractor,'" People reports. The coroner's assessment is that when May visited a chiropractor for an adjustment in her neck, it caused a tear in her left vertebral artery. "The tear blocked blood flow to May’s brain and caused the stroke," People reports. It was previously believed that a block in her carotid artery following a fall during a photoshoot may have been the cause of the fatal stroke. Originally published on Feb. 5, 2016: In tragic news this week, 34-year-old

  • What's The Problem With Ford's F-150 Truck?

    In recent weeks, Ford has a new - and ugly - problem. It produces too many F-150s, and must idle one of its factories. What’s going on? F-150 continues to receive favorable reviews by major review agencies and sites. “With models that now boast the highest tow rating, biggest payload and best gasoline fuel economy in the half-ton segment, Ford’s switch to a revolutionary all-aluminum body has paid off in a big way,” says edmunds.com.   Caranddriver.com gives F-150 five stars. The problem is that Ford’s models, including the F-150 model, aren’t selling fast enough as evidenced by the precipitous decline in the company’s sales in recent months-see table. Ford isn’t the only automobile company driving

  • Miami after losing to Jimbo Fisher's FSU teams: Worse than the Detroit Lions

    Since taking over as Head Coach at Florida State in 2010, Jimbo Fisher is 12-1 against his in-state rivals, Miami and Florida. That includes a perfect record against the Hurricanes, which Fisher ran to 7-0 with a 20-19 win over the ‘Canes earlier this month. But Fisher’s Seminoles haven’t just beaten UM- they’ve rendered them abjectly awful for the rest of those seasons. • 2010: 4-4 • 2011: 1-1 • 2012: 3-1 • 2013: 2-3 • 2014: 0-3 • 2015: 5-3 • 2016 (to date): 0-2 That’s a combined mark of 15-17, a model of mediocrity, which got me thinking about comparisons. And as someone who grew up a Detroit Lions fan, it didn’t take me long. Except the ‘Canes, post-FSU since 2010, can’t even keep up with
