A man trying to help a lost toddler find her parents was misidentified as a kidnapper on social media over the weekend, according to police in Lakeland, Fla., prompting him to leave town in fear for his safety and the safety of his family. The man was also punched by the child’s father who told local media that he “thought he was trying to take my daughter” and “wanted to kill him.” The whole episode prompted the Lakeland Police Department to warn citizens to “be careful about what you post on social media so as not to victimize an innocent person … Before posting information on matters such as this, we encourage people to identify the source and the validity of such claims before sharing them.”
The INSIDER Summary: Tom Holland plays Spider-Man in Marvel's movies, including the upcoming "Spider-Man: Homecoming." He confirmed a popular fan theory that his character first shows up in 2010's "Iron Man 2." It's a scene where a kid almost fights a big robot - before Iron Man swoops in to save him. Tom Holland - who's playing Peter Parker AKA Spider-Man in Marvel's movies - confirmed a theory that fans have been wondering about for nearly a decade. As it turns out, Peter Parker was teased back in 2010's "Iron Man 2," way back when the partnership with Sony, which own the rights to use Spider-Man in movies, and Disney, which owns Marvel, was a mere glint in Marvel CEO Ike Perlmutter's eye.
Reckless ruling blows a huge hole in the wall between church and state: Opposing view In America, houses of worship should continue to pay their own way. Religious institutions in this country have traditionally relied on voluntary support, not taxpayer funds, to grow and prosper. This system has worked well for us. Religion in America has thrived under this voluntary principle. Monday’s decision by the Supreme Court in Trinity Lutheran Church v. Comer is starkly at odds with that great tradition. By asserting that houses of worship have a legal right to public funds in some cases, the high court has imposed a modern-day version of a church tax on all of us. Americans should have the right to
North Korea is on everybody’s lips in 2017 after no fewer than 10 missile launches this year, some of which skirted dangerously close to other countries-including one in March that landed just 186 miles off the coast of Japan. Across Asia and in the wider world, the concern is that Pyongyang will attach a nuclear warhead onto a long-distance missile-something North Korea claims to be able to do (even if it has not been independently verified). North Korea's intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) may even be able to reach Alaska, which has prompted the United States to step up pressure on its only ally, China, to either increase sanctions against Pyongyang or be sanctioned itself.
Jamie Collins, a 6-foot-3, 250-pound linebacker, made a ridiculous request. Collins begged Gregg Williams, his defensive coordinator with the Cleveland Browns, to let him play safety in 2016. At first, the idea sounded enticing. Collins played safety - and nearly every other position - during his time at Southern Mississippi. Why not experiment with a different position? On second thought, however, the idea is ludicrous.
