Feds charge Rhode Island man who allegedly threatened to kill and eat a pro-choice college professor

Feds charge Rhode Island man who allegedly threatened to kill and eat a pro-choice college professor
Federal authorities have charged a Rhode Island man who is accused of threatening to rape, kill and eat a college professor with pro-choice views, according to MassLive.

Matthew Haviland, who was charged with cyberstalking and sending threatening messages, allegedly wrote in a March email to the unidentified professor that the professor and others with left-wing views deserved to be "slaughtered," according to the report.

“You will have your face ripped off and eaten by me, personally,” Haviland is accused of writing. “I will enjoy raping your body after you’re dead.”

Cops claim that mice ate half a ton of missing marijuana

Eight police officers in Argentina who were fired were so desperate that they put the blame on mice and claimed the rodents ate half a ton of marijuana that had gone missing.

The cannabis was noticed to be missing when police made an inspection of the warehouse in which it was stored in Pilar in Argentina. Javier Specia, the former police commissioner, had left 13,000 pounds of cannabis unsigned when stepping down from his post one year ago. The successor to him conducted a search with officers and found that half a ton of the substance was missing.

Food experts from Buenos Aires University said that there is no way that the mice would have mistaken the cannabis for food. They went on to say that even if the mice had found it and thought it was food they would have found a huge group of dead mice in the warehouse, after ingesting it.

Lawyer names son after himself. Son follows in dad's footsteps to become a lawyer. Father sues son for using his own name.

Lowcountry lawyer George Sink is suing his son who has created a firm with a similar name as his father’s firm.

The George Sink P.A. Injury Lawyers firm is suing George “Ted” Sink Jr. and his firm George Sink II for trademark infringement, unfair competition and deceptive trade practices.

@jmyrlefuller

I can see the father's POV on this one. Evidentially they do not get along or the son would be a partner in the father's law firm,and NOBODY with an established business wants someone new using the same name because of the danger of their screw-ups being laid at the door step of the original.

When I was younger we had a trailer that had a toilet in it. My Job was to empty it once a week or so. There is no doubt when you take the cap off what you are dealing with.

Sorry.

If I was that hard up for a 'buzz', I think I'd rather sit in the hot sun without food or water and maybe whack myself in the head with a plank from time to time until I 'saw' things before I'd resort to that.

A 'sorcerer' promised to help people find love. Instead, he orchestrated a 'witchcraft extortion scheme.'

The love ritual began with candles, alcohol, vegetables and photographs, all carefully arranged. Then clients were told to send photos and videos of themselves reciting graphic statements and performing sex acts to a Paraguayan business specializing in witchcraft to finish the magic spell aimed at finding a soul mate.

That's when a self-described sorcerer started another familiar rite: extortion.

Ariel Boiteux, an Argentine national who masterminded an international scheme that entangled an estimated 200 victims in at least 12 countries, threatened to post the photos and videos of the intimate acts unless his clients paid "large sums of money," according to authorities, sometimes demanding six-figure payoffs.

Georgia child finds $40G of meth in box of Legos: officials

Investigators with the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office in Georgia said a child found something other than a messy pile of colorful plastic bits in a gift from his mom. He discovered 3.2 pounds of methamphetamine -- street value, $40,000 -- tucked into what appeared to be an ordinary box of Legos.

Investigator Jim Riggs with the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office told Fox News that a Statesboro, Ga., mother and a couple of her friends drove for about two hours to Charleston, S.C., where they bought the Legos from a consignment shop.

He said when the women returned from the trip and the mother gave her child the toy, there were no Legos to be found inside the container.

What there was, however, was a "big bag of meth."

“The methamphetamine inside of the box was vacuum sealed, and that keeps it from moving around too much and also helps mask the smell,” said Riggs. He said this was the first time his office had made such a find, “especially in this quantity.”....

Televangelist's show sells $45 Trump coin as 'point of contact' to God

By Aris Folley - 05/16/19 09:54 AM EDT


"The Jim Bakker Show" recently promoted a coin decorated with President Trump's face as a "point of contact" with God.

In a viral clip of the promotion, evangelical author Lance Wallnau described the $45 coin as a means for believers to establish a “point of contact” with God.

“When I asked the Lord ‘Why the coin?’ he said ‘Because when you take the coin, it’s a point of contact,'” Wallnau said in the clip, which was shared on Twitter by Right Wing Watch, which "monitors and exposes the activities of Radical Right political organizations."

“So your faith is being released with a million other believers to pray protection and peace and wisdom and counsel over the president of the United States and over his family," he added.

No one should ever throw Leggos away under any circumstances. Those things last for eternity. Give them to your children when they come, a neighbor, a cousin, or just donate them anywhere. It is a crime to throw them away.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.
Rational fear and anger at vicious murderous Islamic terrorists is the same as irrational antisemitism, according to the Leftists.
