  1. Georgia officers on leave after coin-toss used to decide arrest Farnoush Amiri and Ethan Sacks and Kerry Sanders 17 hrs ago Click to expand Georgia cops flip coin to decide to arrest woman, body cam footage shows Two Georgia police officers have been placed on leave after video showed them using a coin-toss app before determining whether to arrest a woman caught speeding in April, and the police chief said he is "appalled" by the move. "Why am I being arrested?" Sarah Webb is heard saying to Officer Courtney Brown in the bodycam footage posted by NBC affiliate WXIA of Atlanta, which first reported the story. Webb, who said Friday she was speeding because she was late for her job at a hair salon, was arrested on charges of speeding, reckless driving and driving too fast for conditions, according to police records. On Monday, a prosecutor dismissed the charges, the station reported. In the video posted by WXIA, Brown and another officer, Kristee Wilson, are heard discussing what they should do with Webb, and the Brown says that she doesn't have speed detection equipment and Wilson says she doesn't have any tickets. The officers used the terms "A" or arrest for heads, and "R" for release for tails, according to the station. The video audio appears to show Wilson say "This is tail right?" Brown says, "Yeah. So release?" and then Wilson says "23," or a police code for arrest, WXIA reported. "These are people who are supposed to protect us, and instead are treating our freedom and our lives like games," Webb, 24, told NBC News in a phone interview Friday. "It's disgusting. It's scary to think police officers do stuff like this." Roswell Police Chief Rusty Grant said both officers have been placed on administrative leave and an internal investigation has been launched. © Provided by NBCU News Group, a division of NBCUniversal Media LLC Roswell, Georgia, police officers Courtney Brown, left, and Kristee Wilson "I couldn't believe what I was seeing, to be honest," Grant told NBC News of the video. "It was appalling." "This isn't a police procedure, to bring a coin flip — whether it's an app or an actual coin toss — that's not part of that decision making to decide to take someone's freedom," Grant said. Webb said she didn't know the officers used the coin-toss app before arresting her until she was contacted by WXIA three weeks before her court date. In a police arrest report, Brown wrote that she was on patrol on April 7 when a vehicle sped past her, and she estimated in the report that the car was traveling around 85 mph in a 45 mph zone before it was pulled over. Grant told NBC News that the two officers were put on administrative leave within a few days of Grant learning about the video. In a statement to WXIA, Grant said that the officer's behavior is not representative of the standards of the Roswell Police Department. "I have much higher expectations of our police officers and I am appalled that any law enforcement officer would trivialize the decision making process of something as important as the arrest of a person," he said. Webb said she's not satisfied with the officers being put on administrative leave, which she called "a paid vacation." "I would like to see them fired, because they shouldn't have been playing with my freedom on a flip of a coin," she said.

  3. Recalled Honey Smacks cereal boxes still being sold in stores The cereal is linked to at least 100 salmonella infections in more than 33 states. by Bryanna Cappadona / Jun.15.2018 / 4:18 PM ET / Updated Jul.12.2018 / 4:16 PM ET / Source: TODAY Some stores are still selling Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal, which had been recalled in June for possible contamination with salmonella, the Food and Drug Administration reported Thursday. The FDA warned consumers not to purchase Honey Smacks cereal and urged people to contact the FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinator if the boxes are still on store shelves. "The FDA has learned that some retailers are still selling this product," the FDA stated in the release. "Retailers cannot legally offer the cereal for sale and consumers should not purchase Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal." At least 100 people in 33 states have become ill with Salmonella Mbandaka after eating Honey Smacks cereal, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Thirty people were hospitalized. No deaths have been reported. The illnesses in this outbreak started on March 3 and the last reported illness was July 2. It can take several weeks for cases to reported so it's possible there will be more llnesses. Kellogg launched an investigation in early June with the third-party manufacturer that produces Honey Smacks after the FDA and the CDC contacted the company about reported illnesses. The Honey Smacks boxes affected come in both 15.3- and 23-ounce packages, have "Best If Used By Dates" between June 14, 2018, and June 14, 2019, and have UPC codes 3800039103 and 3800014810. (The UPC code is the number found just below the barcode on the bottom of the box.) Throw it out or return for refund Don't eat the cereal, the CDC warned. If the cereal has been stored in a different container and the brand or type is unknown, throw the product away and thoroughly wash the container with warm, soapy water before using it again to prevent further contamination. People infected with salmonella can experience severe illness, though symptoms may vary. Symptoms, which can appear 12 to 72 hours after consuming contaminated food, include diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever, according to the CDC. Other Kellogg products are not part of the recall. Consumers with questions or concerns can call 1-800-962-1413 or visit kelloggs.com/honeysmacksrecall.

  4. 16 hours ago Woman admits to killing her father after finding his child pornography collection, including photos of herself By Kathleen Joyce | Fox News Barbara Coombes, 63, was sentenced to nine years in prison on Wednesday after she confessed to killing her father and burying him in the backyard. (Greater Manchester Police ) A British woman was sentenced to nine years in prison on Wednesday after she confessed to killing her father and burying his body in the backyard of their home in 2006 after she discovered his collection of child pornography, including indecent images of herself. Barbara Coombes, 63, of Reddish, Stockport, went to a police station in Stockport on Jan. 7, 2008, where she admitted she killed her father, Kenneth Coombes, 87, in 2006. She told police she “snapped” in January 2006 when she came across naked photographs of herself and another child, The Guardian reported. She said she was afraid she was not the only victim of her father “and a black cloud appeared over me.” She told investigators she had been used as a “sex slave” by her father for decades and was raped hundreds of times by him. She claimed her father took her to a photography club where he “forced her to display her genitals while other men took photographs of her.” “I could feel a black cloud appearing over me,” Coombes said in court. “In a haze of disgust and disbelief, I picked up a shovel I had been gardening with and walked into the living room where my father was standing.” Coombes said she hit her father in the back of the head with the shovel before slitting his throat with the tool’s blade, The Washington Post reported. She then took a rug, wrapped up his body and buried him behind a tree in the backyard. She bought 2,000 pounds of soil to conceal the body. She told family members her father died suddenly and the hospital cremated him. Neighbors said they thought the man moved away. Coombes lived in the home for the next 12 years. “To my knowledge this man Kenneth just disappeared,” Terry Sever, a neighbor, told the Manchester Evening News. “I was not that friendly to ask where he went. I just did not see him anymore.” Coombes’ lawyer, Martin Heslop, said his client was “treated as a slave” by her father. “She had no friends, no life outside the house where she was treated as a slave and controlled by her father and had no one to talk to,” Heslop said. Heslop said it was also possible Kenneth Coombes may have been the father to Barbara Coombes’ first child. The child died after birth, The Guardian reported. Coombes pleaded not guilty to murdering her father but “guilty to the lesser charge of manslaughter by reason of diminished responsibility” on Wednesday. Judge Timothy King sentenced her to nine years in prison saying he “did not accept she acted in self-defense” but “accepted she killed while suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and severe depression as a result of 40 years of extreme mental, physical and sexual abuse at the hands of your father.” The judge also believed Coombes would have never confessed unless “the net [had] not started to close in around her.” A housing officer kept getting sent away while trying to make welfare checks at Coombes’ home. A representative from the Stockport housing association became suspicious of the man’s whereabouts and was slated to visit the home the day after Coombes confessed. She also was accused of “claiming her father’s pension and benefits on his behalf,” the BBC reported. She received about $236,000. Senior Investigating Officer Duncan Thorpe of the Greater Manchester Police Department said he believed Coombes “showed absolutely no concern for what she had done and denied everyone the chance to say goodbye, as Kenneth lay buried at the bottom of his own garden, just meters from her own bedroom window.” “Despite having years to tell someone what really happened, she only came forward when she had no other choice,” he said. http://www.foxnews.com/world/2018/07/14/woman-admits-to-killing-her-father-after-finding-his-child-pornography-collection-including-photos-herself.html
  5. Body of missing teen found in Quemahoning Reservoir by Daniel Hamburg Saturday, July 14th 2018 After a five-day search at the Quemahoning Reservoir, crews have recovered the body of 18-year old Joey Dubics. (WJAC) QUEMEHONING, Pa. (WJAC) -- After a five-day search at the Quemahoning Reservoir, crews have recovered the body of 18-year old Joey Dubics. Somerset County Coroner Wallace Miller said at about 3:50 p.m, crews recovered the teen's body from the reservoir. Scalp Leve Deputy Fire Chief David Boyer said crews used three side scan sonars, and a team from West Virginia with side scan sonar and submersible sonar. A remotely operated underwater vehicle, almost like a mini submarine, was also in use. H said it was a team effort, requiring research of grid areas multiple times. Boyer said Dubics was found in 74 feet of water by divers. The search started on Monday when officials say Dubics was paddleboarding with two friends when and went into the water to retrieve his hat and sunglasses, but never resurfaced. At times, more than 50 first responders were on the ground assisting in the search. Many of those same volunteers were also involved in the recovery effort of a missing fisherman at Prince Gallitzin State Park earlier this month. “It's been a long week for us, and everybody's glad we can bring this to a resolve and bring this family closure,” Boyer said. The Cambria/Somerset Authority chairman Jim Greco told 6 News the dam will reopen Monday. A GoFundMe page has been started for the family.

  6. Attorney General Shapiro Supports New PA Law Giving His Office Power to Prosecute Abuse of Elderly, Others July 14, 2018 12:24 am· READING, Pa. – Attorney General Josh Shapiro yesterday praised a new Pennsylvania law expanding the authority of the Office of Attorney General to prosecute abuse and neglect of care-dependent persons in nursing homes and similar settings. Under prior state law, the Attorney General’s office only had power to prosecute neglect cases, not abuse. “Prior to passing this new law, Pennsylvania law treated ‘neglect’ and ‘abuse’ differently,” Attorney General Josh Shapiro explained today in Reading, where he stood with members of his Medicaid Fraud Control Section, Rep. Jim Cox (R-Berks/Lancaster) and Berks County Area Agency on Aging Executive Director Dr. Edward B. Michalik. “Until now, my office only had jurisdiction to investigate and prosecute neglect of care-dependent persons. This new law gives us the law enforcement power we need to investigate and prosecute abuse as well. I want to thank Representative Cox, the General Assembly, and Governor Wolf. Act 53 will allow us to better protect Pennsylvanians in nursing homes and similar settings from abuse and neglect.” Act 53 gives the Office of Attorney General jurisdiction to investigate and prosecute those who physically abuse seniors in nursing homes. It also increases the office’s ability to prosecute neglect cases by removing the need to prove that actual physical injury occurred in order to establish the charges. “This new law gives law enforcement personnel the tools they need to prosecute deadly neglect of a care-dependent person,” said Rep. Cox, who introduced House Bill 1124, which is now Act 53. “Those caregivers who kill a person by neglecting the individual will no longer be able to hide behind a legal loophole.” The Office of Attorney General Medicaid Fraud Control Section’s Care-Dependent Neglect Team works aggressively with local and state authorities to root out and prosecute neglect of Pennsylvania seniors and care-dependent persons. The office has recently brought felony neglect and other charges against a Luzerne County charge nurse, an Erie County aide, a Berks County man, and a Philadelphia nurse for failing to properly care for people entrusted to their care. http://www.explorejeffersonpa.com/attorney-general-shapiro-supports-new-pa-law-giving-his-office-power-to-prosecute-abuse-of-elderly-others/

  10. Virginia 8 hours ago Giant hogweed severely burns Virginia boy, 17, sending him to hospital, report says By Elizabeth Zwirz | Fox News A Virginia teen is recuperating after he was burned by hogweed. (GoFundMe) A Virginia teen suffered significant burns on his face and arm after reportedly being exposed to hogweed. Alex Childress, 17, was inflicted with second-and third-degree burns after unknowingly touching the plant while he was doing work outside at his landscaping job on Tuesday, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch. Childress reportedly believed the plant was an unwanted weed and went to remove it from the ground. A person's skin can burn and blister after coming in contact with sap from the plant. Childress’ father, Justin, recalled to the outlet how his son told him he had a “really bad sunburn.” “The top layer of skin on the left side of his face basically was gone and appeared to be like a really bad burn that had already peeled,” the elder Childress reportedly said. Childress was brought to the hospital on Tuesday after his mom, a nurse, suspected that hogweed could be responsible, the Times-Dispatch reported. A link to a GoFundMe page called “Alex’s Burn Recovery Fund” was posted on what appeared to be the father’s Facebook. In it, the teen explained the series of events that led to his burns, saying he was “trying to make a little extra spending money” before setting off for his freshman year at Virginia Tech. He said he “unknowingly cut down and carried a ‘giant hogweed’ plant” and as a result was burned on his face and arm. “I was transferred to the Burn ICU at VCU and treated for 3 days but still have daily wound care which requires debriding the burns to remove dead skin,” the post read. The goal for the GoFundMe is set at $10,000 and the teen said he intends to use any money raised to help offset costs for school and medical bills. http://www.foxnews.com/health/2018/07/12/giant-hogweed-severely-burns-virginia-boy-17-sending-him-to-hospital-report-says.html
