The family of one of two mental health patients detained in South Carolina who drowned in flood waters following Hurricane Florence wants to know why police attempted to transport the women despite the evident danger. Windy Newton and Nicolette Green were being transported by van to separate mental health facilities Tuesday night after being involuntarily committed by physicians, the Horry County Sheriff’s Office told HuffPost in a statement. The vehicle, operated by HCSO officers Joshua Bishop and Stephen Flood, was swept away by flooding near the Little Pee Dee River.
Wilson, 30, of Austin, Texas, made “suspicious” travel plans for Taiwan shortly after a friend of the victim told him that law enforcement was preparing to arrest him, according to Austin police. Wilson may be known for his yearslong battle with the federal government over his plastic gun blueprints, but he’s also had his hands in moneymaking for neo-Nazis, crypto-anarchism (as he puts it) and, allegedly, child sex trafficking.

The mother of a child who died after he was swept away by Hurricane Florence's raging floodwaters in North Carolina says she did everything she could to hold on to her baby boy. "I was holding his hand, trying to hold him, trying to pull him up and it got to a point I couldn't hold on anymore and he let go," Dazia Lee, mother of 14-month-old Kaiden Lee-Welch, told a reporter. The mother continued traveling east until she encountered rushing floodwaters, which swept her vehicle off the road and pinned it against a row of trees.
East New York, a residential neighborhood in the eastern section of Brooklyn, has battled poverty since the 1950s. In April 2018, I began documenting grassroots community action in response to the social problems associated with poverty — from street crime and drug addiction to gun violence. In this series, which is part of a long-term urban project I started in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, in 2012, I have been following the efforts of a local organization called ManUp Inc. Members use the Egyptian word “hotep,” which means “to be at peace,” to greet people in their community.
British Prime Minister Theresa May's renewed pledge to deliver Brexit without dividing the UK was met with contradictory ultimatums Friday from Northern Ireland's unionist and nationalist parties. May returned from a bruising EU summit in Salzburg to deliver an impassioned televised address in which she blamed Brussels for the impasse and demanded "respect" for the UK. "It is something I will never agree to -- indeed, in my judgement it is something no British prime minister would ever agree to," she said.
Since professor Christine Blasey Ford wrote a confidential letter accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, I’ve heard a parade of the usual rape culture cliches: Why didn’t she report it to the police? Why didn’t she come forward earlier? And, after all, boys will be boys.
Only a month ago, a Ukrainian soldier was killed by sniper fire at the spot where Gavin Williamson, the Defence Secretary, is now standing. This is the front line of the West’s new war with Russia. Two hundred yards away, Russian-backed separatists are in position, their sniper rifles at the ready.
Michael Cohen, Donald Trump‘s former personal lawyer, has said he is providing “critical information” as part of the federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election and possible coordination between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign. Having admitted guilt to a string of charges last month, Mr Cohen said on Thursday he was handing the information to special counsel Robert Mueller‘s prosecutors without a cooperation agreement. Mr Trump’s former fixer could be a vital witness for investigators as they examine whether the president’s campaign coordinated with Russians.
Yandy, a women’s clothing store that without fail produces laughably “sexy” Halloween costumes each year, has outdone itself this season. “Every year at Halloween I think ‘You know who’s horrible? Every year at Halloween I think "You know who's horrible?
Authorities say a man who is being accused of attempting to steal an American Airlines jet had a commercial pilots license and was in the U.S. with a Canadian passport.
In Mr. Carter’s view, the fact that only 23 lagoons became inundated and 31 have overtopped is a sign of farm ingenuity in a state with 3,300 such lagoons across more than 2,000 farms. “We need an atta-boy for the job we’re doing,” says Carter. “The focus on pigs is because they are more regulated, they are more visible, and they can stink, there’s no doubt about it,” says North Carolina State University environmental engineer John Classen, who focuses on the waste chain.
A Maryland woman who opened fire at a Rite Aid distribution center on Thursday has been identified by authorities. Moseley opened fire outside the building just after 9 a.m. and then moved inside and kept shooting, Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler said during a press conference. “She wanted to pick a fight,” Mike Carre told the Washington Post.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tested Israel's new high-speed train from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv on Thursday, but much work remains before it is fully operational. Netanyahu joined Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz on the ride from a newly built train station in Jerusalem's city centre to Ben Gurion International Airport near Tel Aviv. Travelling at speeds up to 160 kilometres (100 miles) per hour, the ride from central Jerusalem to the airport will take 21 minutes -- half the time it takes to drive there in normal traffic, though congestion often makes the trip much longer.
The third inter-Korea summit was held in Pyongyang on September 18. North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean president Moon Jae-in started it off by hugging in Pyongyang Sunan International Airport. Afterward, Moon was applauded by Pyongyang citizens as he and Kim drove through the capital.
The sexual assault allegation against Brett Kavanaugh is rocking the world of Ivy League law, an elite feeding ground for the Supreme Court and federal judiciary. At Yale Law School, the embattled Supreme Court nominee’s alma mater, a growing number of students are denouncing administrators for their rote support of Kavanaugh and are demanding changes to a culture that enables powerful elites to get away with sexual misconduct. At a Yale Law Women event on Thursday, students confronted faculty over statements Yale put out over the summer in support of Kavanaugh’s nomination and the school’s silence since Dr. Christine Blasey Ford alleged that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were teens.
Cody Wilson ― 3D-printed gun creator, neo-Nazi funder and sexual assault suspect ― jetted to Taiwan after finding out that police in Austin, Texas, were after him. The revelation that he had left the country led to a tense and confusing few days in which it was unclear whether police could get to him, since Taiwan doesn’t have an extradition treaty with the U.S. The document was canceled by the American Institute, the de facto U.S. embassy in Taiwan.
The college students and neighbors gathered at a St. Louis coffee shop seemed like one of the friendlier crowds Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill might face campaigning in heavily Republican Missouri. Hawley, a 38-year-old Yale and Stanford graduate elected to his first public office in 2016, says McCaskill supports a "radical left-wing agenda" that's at odds with what Missouri voters want.
Substantial progress must be made on Brexit by October if a deal is to be struck in November, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Thursday after leaders discussed a possible final Brexit summit for November. Merkel said British Prime Minister Theresa May's so-called Chequers plan, hashed out at her country home in July, offered a good basis for negotiations but there was still a lot of work to do on the issue of future EU trade relations with Britain. "It was clear today that we need substantial progress by October and that we then aim to finalise everything in November," Merkel told reporters at an informal European Union summit.

Twitter allowed tweets that listed Christine Blasey Ford’s address and phone numbers and called for her to be doxxed to remain online for hours, even as hundreds of people reported them to the platform’s support team. In that time, others retweeted the messages and copied them onto Reddit, further disseminating Blasey’s contact details. Twitter initially let the troll who posted Blasey’s personal information back on its platform after less than a day.
Three people were killed on Thursday morning in a shooting at a drug distribution centre in northeast Maryland, officials said. A law enforcement official with knowledge of the shooting stressed that the number of dead is based on preliminary information. A suspect was taken into custody and was in critical condition, Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler told a news conference.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday Israel will defend itself against Iran, after a friendly fire incident in Syria this week linked to Israeli strikes on Iranian targets there. Syria accidentally downed a Russian plane late Monday, killing all 15 people on board, the same evening Israel launched strikes in the war-torn country. Israel says it was targeting a Syrian military facility where weapons manufacturing systems were "about to be transferred on behalf of Iran" to Lebanese Shiite group Hezbollah.
Duke Energy said Friday that a dam containing a large lake at Wilmington power plant has been breached by floodwaters from Florence, and it’s possible coal ash from an adjacent dump is flowing into the Cape Fear River. Duke spokeswoman Paige Sheehan said Friday that floodwaters continue to overtop an earthen dike at the north side of Sutton Lake, a 1,100-acre (445-hectare) reservoir at the L.V. Sutton Power Station.
