China launches first freight train to London

North Charleston, SC — An 18-month-old boy is hospitalized in critical condition after police say he was hanged by his ankles in a closet and repeatedly beaten by three teenage boys – the child’s mother has been arrested for allowing it to happen. Hospital staff alerted authorities Tuesday evening after the child was found to be suffering from numerous injuries including bruises and lacerations to his back, chest and abdomen, multiple lacerations of his liver, spleen and pancreas and five fractured ribs. Doctors also discovered an old skull fracture that had healed. When questioned, the child’s mother, 18-year-old Shakera Wright, said she and the child had stayed at a friend’s apartment Monday night, and that friend, 16-year-old Tyrek Varnes, along with two other juveniles, ages 14 and 15, were “play wrestling” with the child. Wright made a boxing motion with both fists and indicated the teens were hitting the child in the chest and stomach. Wright went on to say she stopped it when she thought the boys were getting too rough. Come Tuesday morning, she noticed the baby wasn’t his usual playful self. Wright told doctors the child’s eyes were rolled back in his head and he “looked like he wanted to die.” She finally took the poor broken kid to the hospital on the advice of his father, who was not at the home at the time of the alleged abuse. Wright, her buddy Varnes, and the other two teens have all been charged with infliction or allowing infliction to great bodily injury to a child. Varnes admitted to hitting the child while wrestling with him. He also said he punched him with a closed fist, hung him upside-down in a closet by strapping a belt around his ankles, dropped him on the ground, lifted him above his head and slammed him onto a bed. He will be charged as an adult. Thanks, hellsbells.As you saw, this guy pulled this off for SIX YEARS. That’s dedication to your craft right there. But the government doesn’t look too kindly to people dressing up like dead people to rip them off, so Thomas, 49, is looking at 25 years or more with the 47 counts of grand larceny, forgery and conspiracy charges he got nailed with. Another man, Mhilton Rimolo – reportedly the dead woman’s nephew – has also been arrested accused of helping Thomas pull off the scam. Thomas reportedly had a coffin in his living room when Ciy marshals went to evict him and had even made up a son and a nephew. […]

Bolivian VP says aviation officials abuse power in granting license to LaMia

Here, Now — It’s been awhile since I posted a movie recommendation, but not from a lack of watching any. I have six movies I think a lot of you DD’ers will enjoy, starting with LOVELY MOLLY. It’s a horror film directed by Eduardo Sanchez, one of the creators of THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, who went on to direct a few direct-to-video movies that didn’t come anywhere close to being as popular with audiences or critics as Blair Witch (although I did enjoy ALTERED). From the looks of the MOLLY reviews, it seems like that streak continues with yet another VOD release.Smith says after he sat down in a chair, he used the rifle to shoot Kifer as she walked down the basement stairs. He told police that after she fell he tried to shoot her a second time, but the rifle jammed. He said that Kifer laughed at him when this happened and that made him even angrier. “If you’re trying to shoot somebody and they laugh at you, you go again,” he told police. So Smith pulled out a .22 caliber revolver and shot Kifer several times in the chest. A few minutes later, as Kifer gasped for air, he shot her once more under her chin.

The girl ignored Claudio-Marquez’s advances and when she got off at her stop, the persistent Romeo followed her. The girl told Claudio-Marquez several times to leave her alone as she walked toward her house, but he refused and even offered to buy the girl alcohol. […]

‘Hidden Figures’ soars

LAWRENCEBURG, Tenn. –– Here’s another story about a woman injured at a party, but in this case, no one is sure exactly what happened. This is due largely to the victim currently unconscious in a hospital bed recovering from 20 broken ribs. The only clue they have to what happened to Karen Hannah is her own call to 911. Here is what is known so far. Hannah attended a cousin’s party Saturday night where, according to police, 60 to 70 people attended. At some point during this party where many, including Hannah, were drinking, she was found on the floor in the fetal position asking for water. She somehow managed to find a cell phone and call 911 at around 3:00 a.m. Sunday. She told the dispatcher she had been run over by a car but other people there were saying she was fine — just drunk and lying. The family is hoping someone at the party will speak up because even though doctor’s have stopped giving her all the drugs that were keeping her sedated, Hannah will not wake up. In the meantime, police are still trying to piece together what happened. “We’ve got a lot of conflicting stories, and so we’ve got to go through and determine whose story is accurate,” said Detective Lori Bradford. I’m betting she was drunker than shit and someone at the party, just as drunk, hit her with their car.According to court documents, Sheldon, who lives in a converted Greyhound bus on the premises of the scrap yard, grabbed the girl by the arm and told her that unless she “did something for him,” he was going to call the police and have her arrested for theft.

Family of wrongly executed Chinese man applies for state compensation

That last line kills me for some reason. Also, has anyone here eaten at this place? We have one nearby, but I stay away from the places that have food served by scantily clad ladies. Not that I am against young women dressing provocatively, it’s just that I dislike overpaying for shit food even more.According to court documents, the child’s mother called police after learning Knox had digitally raped her daughter. The child would tell police Knox “put his finger in her private area four times,” and that he had put “ice” on his finger and the penetration “burned.” An examination showed that the girl had a 3-millimeter tear on her vagina.
