Philadelphia middle school students sickened by marijuana-laced Rice Krispies treats: Police

More than a dozen Philadelphia middle school students became ill Friday after intentionally ingesting marijuana-laced Rice Krispies treats, police said.

West Oak Lane Charter School was on lockdown for most of the day as authorities investigated what happened. They said a 12-year-old bought the edibles online and shared them with 15 seventh graders ranging in age from 11 to 13 years old.

“She brought then into the school and shared them with approximately 15 of her classmates,” Philadelphia Police Captain Sekou Kinebrew told Fox 29. “They all appear to be in the seventh grade. They started to show some symptoms of illness, symptoms consistent with ingesting that type of substance.”

The school called the police once officials learned of the incident, Principal Charletta Zeigler told the The Philidelphia Inquirer.

The students were examined at the school and released to their parents. School officials said the scheme to eat the snacks was planned on social media.

“Social media drives a lot of these kinds of situations,” school CEO Debbera Peoples-Lee told KYW-TV. “Parents absolutely need to be focused and monitoring the social media sites that their children are using.”

An investigation into the incident is ongoing. The student who brought the edibles could face charges.

Ohio bar incites outrage after posting 9/11 shot special

An Ohio bar is facing national outrage after posting “the 9/11” shot as its special of the day on Sept. 11.

Karma Kafe in Akron posted a photo of what appears to be a red and blue slushy in a shot glass and said, “Today’s special, the 9/11 shot only $4.00!!!!”

The post originally said, “Because why not capitalize on something that happened 18 years ago,” but it has since been deleted, Fox 8 Cleveland reported Thursday.

It didn’t take long for people to condemn the business’ callous attempt to capitalize on a solemn day of remembrance. Sept. 11, 2001, was, after all, when nearly 3,000 people died at the hands of terrorists in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania — not the stuff of glib drink salesmanship.

“Your previous caption was absolutely disgusting and you can edit it but it doesn’t delete screenshots,” one commenter said on Instagram.

Another said, “So insensitive — you don’t celebrate that day, you remember.”

“There’s a time for jokes, sarcasm, and satire. But on the anniversary of a terrorist attack that killed thousands of Americans and traumatized just about the entire country…?” yet another person wrote. “If this caption would have said in ‘remembrance of’ or something along those lines, I would have been sold. You wouldn’t have even had to promise proceeds to an organization. But to mock this tragedy?”

KRISTIN CAVALLARI’S 9/11 TRIBUTE SLAMMED AS ‘INSENSITIVE’ AND ‘TONE DEAF’

The bar owner, identified by the Akron Beacon Journal as Chris Sedlock, told the publication, “Isn’t capitalizing on tragedy the American way>”

Sedlock said he didn’t intend for the post to go viral.

“I’m the kind of person that what you see if what you get,” he told the Journal. “When do you have the right to talk about it? … They don’t see this as irony. I see the irony in it. It’s dark humor.”

ILHAN OMAR SLAMMED ON 9/11 ANNIVERSARY BY VICTIM’S SON AFTER ‘SOME PEOPLE DID SOMETHING’ QUOTE

His bar’s Instagram account has just over 1,000 followers. The viral post has just 43 likes.

The account posted an Instastory early Thursday, showing bar patrons taking shots alongside a caption: “Cheers to ‘all publicity is good publicity.'”

Critics expressed all sorts of reasons for blasting the Karma Kafe’s offering.

“Seriously? What next? Trail of tears martinis?” one commenter asked on the Sept. 11 post. “That’s kinda gross.”

Others called the move to capitalize on 9/11 in such fashion “unprofessional and careless,” branding the establishment “scum” and an “embarrassment.”

“Might I suggest in the future you find someone else to run your social media because the current person does not appear to know what they are doing,” a user suggested.

“Can’t wait until you close,” someone added.

Connecticut woman, 93, found dead at bottom of stairs was murdered, police say

A 93-year-old Connecticut woman found dead at the bottom of basement steps was murdered, police said.

Isabelle Mehner was found unresponsive in her home in Stamford on Wednesday by family members. They thought the fall had been accidental, police said.

“With the assistance of the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, it was determined that the injuries the victim sustained are not consistent with a fall down the stairs,” police said Thursday. “This case is being investigated as a homicide.”

The cause of death wasn’t released.

Mehner was found at the bottom of a staircase leading to the basement, Fox 61 Connecticut reported.

She lived alone, according to the station, which reported that the woman’s family decided to check on her when they could not reach her by telephone throughout the afternoon on Wednesday.

“She’s 93 years old,” he said. “Why would you do something like that? It’s just terrible.”

— Roy Mehner, victim’s son.

Roy Mehner told WABC-TV on Friday that his mother’s death was very upsetting. “She’s 93 years old,” he said. “Why would you do something like that? It’s just terrible.”

The station reported that items were taken and the door to the house was unlocked.

A neighbor told The Stamford Advocate she saw young boys and girls in Mehner’s driveway early Wednesday afternoon. She said they may have been fighting, and that whatever was going on broke up when Mehner came outside.

City agrees to $450G settlement over Stormy Daniels strip club arrest

Officials in Columbus, Ohio, have agreed to a $450,000 settlement with Stormy Daniels over the adult film star’s arrest at a strip club last year, the city said Friday.

Daniels filed a lawsuit against several Columbus police officers in January, alleging they conspired to retaliate against her because of her claims of an affair with President Trump before he became president.

City attorney’s office spokeswoman Meredith Tucker told Fox News an agreement was reached after mediation. She said all parties involved agreed the figure was a fair settlement “based on the facts and circumstances involved.”

Messages to Daniels’ attorney were not immediately returned.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was arrested in July 2018 and accused of inappropriately touching a female undercover officer while performing at a strip club. The arrest sparked criticism, and the charges were eventually dropped.

Daniels’ lawyer at the time, Michael Avenatti, said the arresting officers ‘social media pages appeared to be in favor of Trump. He said the officers sought to defame Daniels after learning she was performing.

Daniels claimed to have had sex with Trump in 2006. She sued him last year, seeking to break a nondisclosure agreement she’d signed days before the 2016 election about the alleged affair as part of a hush-money settlement.

The payout still has to be approved by the Columbus City Council, Tucker said. It was not clear when the governing body would take up the issue.

Airstrike kills 17 ISIS terrorists in Libya: US military

Westlake Legal Group Mideast-Libya_Hers5 Airstrike kills 17 ISIS terrorists in Libya: US military Melissa Leon Lucas Tomlinson fox-news/world/world-regions/africa fox-news/world/terrorism/isis fox-news/world/terrorism fox-news/us/military fox news fnc/us fnc article a05476c6-aaa2-54ae-aef4-064abda173b2

The U.S. military says it killed 17 Islamic State (ISIS) fighters in an airstrike on Thursday outside Murzuq, in southwest Libya.

This was the first American airstrike in Libya since Nov. 29, 2018, according to U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM).

“This ongoing campaign against ISIS-Libya demonstrates that U.S. Africa Command persistently targets terrorist networks that seek to harm innocent Libyans,” said Navy Rear Adm. Heidi Berg, AFRICOM director of intelligence. “We continue to pursue ISIS-Libya and other terrorists in the region, denying them safe haven to coordinate and plan operations in Libya.”

No civilians were injured or killed in the airstrike, AFRICOM said.

The U.S. conducted almost 500 airstrikes against ISIS in 2016 in the coastal city of Surt.

Earlier this month, the American military bombed an “ISIS-infested” island in northern Iraq.

American jets dropped more than 80,000 pounds of laser-guided bombs there, on Qanus Island. F-15 and F-35 jets dropped GBU-31 munitions, officials told Fox News.

The campaign was meant to destroy an area being used by ISIS for operations in the region, officials had said.

New U.S. Air Force strike data shows jets have doubled the number of airstrikes targeting ISIS in the past month. American jets have dropped 28 percent more bombs on the Taliban and an ISIS affiliate in August than they did in the previous month.

In August, 800 bombs were dropped against targets in Afghanistan – the most since November 2018.

A Pennsylvania police department is searching for the thief who swiped a speed enforcement device — while officers were using it to catch speeders.

Fleetwood Police released a surveillance image of the vehicle involved in Monday’s theft in Richmond Township.

“At approximately 4:10 pm the driver of the pictured vehicle backed up to the device and put the receiver unit and battery charger/power supply in the trunk while officers were involved in traffic stops,” police said Thursday. “The driver then completed a U-turn and fled northbound on 222.”

Police were offering a reward for information about the thief and the device’s whereabouts.

Stephon Clark shooting: No civil rights charges, officers will return to active-duty in Sacramento

Westlake Legal Group ContentBroker_contentid-18d58d10f98f4b2184aeb3a839490a0b Stephon Clark shooting: No civil rights charges, officers will return to active-duty in Sacramento fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox news fnc/us fnc Danielle Wallace article 2ebd3022-049e-54af-9b08-b09d190c15fa

Two Sacramento police officers who fatally shot an unarmed black man last March will not face federal civil rights charges and will be returned to active duty after an internal investigation conducted by the department cleared them of any wrongdoing, officials said Thursday.

CALIFORNIA OFFICERS WHO KILLED STEPHON CLARK WON’T FACE CHARGES, STATE AG SAYS

U.S. Attorney McGregor Scott and the FBI announced Thursday that a federal review of the 2018 shooting of 22-year-old Stephon Clark found “insufficient evidence” to pursue civil rights charges against Officers Terrance Mercadal and Jared Robinet. Mercadal is also black. Robinet is white.

The probe did not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that either officer “acted willfully, with the purpose of using objectively unreasonable force,” Scott’s office told The Sacramento Bee.

The announcement came minutes before the Sacramento Police Department also said an internal investigation found no policy or training violations in Mercadal and Robinet’s actions leading up to Clark’s death. The two will be returned to active duty. Both were placed on desk duty after the shooting.

“This incident has been thoroughly investigated by law enforcement agencies at the local, state and federal levels,” Sacramento Police Chief Daniel Hahn said in a statement. “Every one of these independent examinations has reached the same finding – the use of deadly force in this case was lawful.

“Although no policy violations occurred in this incident or in the events leading up to it, we are committed to implementing strategies that may prevent similar tragedies in the future,” Hahn said.

Clark was shot seven times in his grandparent’s backyard in Sacramento’s Meadowview neighborhood in March 2018 after he ran from officers. The two officers were pursuing Clark after receiving calls about a man breaking car windows and an elderly neighbor’s sliding glass door in the area.

Authorities said the officers believed Clark was advancing toward them with a gun in hand.  The object was later determined to be a cell phone. His death sparked a year’s worth of protests as civil rights groups claimed that race played a role in the shooting.

The California attorney general’s office announced in March around the one year anniversary of Clark’s death that it concluded its own investigation and declined to issue state criminal charges against the two officers. Attorney General Xavier Becerra said then evidence showed the officers had reason to believe their lives were in danger.

The city of Sacramento agreed in June to a tentative $20 million settlement in a lawsuit filed on behalf of Clark’s minor sons, parents and grandparents, The Bee reported.

Clark’s brother, Stevante Clark, posted on Facebook Thursday that he was in a meeting with federal and local authorities. “These people have failed when it comes to #Accountability,” he wrote.

“My job as my brother’s keeper is to keep fighting for accountability and justice. My job is to make sure nothing like this happens ever again in our city,” Stevante Clark told reporters after the police department announced it cleared the officers of wrongdoing.

“We don’t want killer cops on our streets, we’re not going to have killer cops on our streets,” Clark continued. “Sacramento police should know the difference between a gun and a cell phone and my brother should be with us today.”

Sacramento’s Mayor Darrell Steinberg issued a statement: “This incident has been investigated at every level and each agency came to the same conclusion. Those conclusions, however, will never change the fact that this was a tragedy and the Clark family lost a loved one.

“As a city and as a police department, we have made many important changes. We changed our foot pursuit policy, our body worn camera policy and will continue to make the changes necessary to make our city safer for our community and our officers.

Indiana elementary school reverses ‘zero dating policy’ after parents express concerns

Westlake Legal Group middle-school-classroom-iStock Indiana elementary school reverses 'zero dating policy' after parents express concerns fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/indiana fox-news/health/education fox news fnc/us fnc Brie Stimson article 49786ac5-10cc-5188-8e0a-bc16d1498d72

An Indiana elementary school reversed a fifth-grade “zero dating policy” Thursday after some parents expressed concern over the school regulating their children’s relationships.

Earlier in the week, Riverside Elementary School in Jeffersonville, Ind., sent a letter home that said, “At this age, children are dating and breaking up within days of each other,” according to Fox 59 in Indianapolis. “This leads to many broken hearts, which carry over into the classroom.”

The letter stated that the students had until Wednesday to “make sure that relationships have ended” and asked parents to sign the letter and return it with their child to the school.

Parent Briana Bower posted the letter on her Facebook page.

“The school has no right to pressure my child & put a DEADLINE on when he ‘has to’ end his relationship,” she wrote in the post. “That’s MY child & I will not enforce this new rule of theirs. As long as he’s not holding her hand or whatever at school it’s none of their business who he calls his girlfriend.”

She said her 10-year-old son has a girlfriend who is his best friend and they spend time together after school.

“No, they’re not romantic together, they’re too young. However, they talk every day,” she told Fox 59.

In their clarification, the school said a group of fifth-grade teachers wrote the letter with the intention of protecting students’ feelings, encouraging developmentally appropriate relationships and avoiding distractions during class time.

“In retrospect, the phrases, ‘zero dating policy’ and the request to take Tuesday and Wednesday to ‘end’ relationships misrepresented the intentions of the teachers,” the school said, according to WDRB. “While the team of teachers were trying to protect students, the wording is what caused alarm.”

The school said the letter had not been reviewed by the principal or district officials.

Bower wrote on Facebook that she has never had a problem with the school before.

“I just think boundaries were crossed with telling my child he had to end his relationship by a certain date without addressing anything with me first,” she wrote.

Democratic megadonor Ed Buck ordered held until end of federal drug case

Westlake Legal Group 48511a85-AP19261135046288 Democratic megadonor Ed Buck ordered held until end of federal drug case Jennifer Girdon Frank Miles fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/us/us-regions/west fox-news/us/crime/trials fox news fnc/us fnc article 374bf257-015a-5e44-83fa-0eeff5423a88

California Democratic activist and megadonor Ed Buck was ordered held in federal custody Thursday until the disposition of a drug charge against him following a hearing that lasted fewer than 10 minutes.

Federal prosecutors in Los Angeles asked for Buck, 65, to be held without bond and public defender Claire Simonich told U.S. Magistrate Judge Patrick J. Walsh that Buck is “not contesting detention at this time.”

Buck was arrested earlier this month and charged by local prosecutors with battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house. Two days later, he was charged with one federal count of distribution of methamphetamine resulting in death for the July 2017 death of Gemmel Moore.

If convicted of the federal charge, Buck faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 20 years in prison. The state case against him is currently on hold.

Nana Gyamfi, an attorney for Moore’s family, told reporters outside the courthouse that the families and friends of Buck’s alleged victims were “happy … that Ed Buck is not torturing or killing another black gay man.”

CLINTON, OBAMA SILENT ON ED BUCK DONATIONS

A criminal complaint and accompanying affidavit detailed multiple allegations that Buck injected men with meth against their wishes during sexual encounters. The investigation found at least 10 alleged victims, several of whom described in salacious detail Buck’s apparent fetish for paying men to use drugs and have sex with him, which often took a dark turn and led to several suspected overdoses.

Prosecutors have described Buck in court documents as a “violent, dangerous sexual predator” whose “deadly behavior has not stopped,”

Walsh told Buck Thursday that he had the right to contest his detention, but added: “I don’t see anything that would alleviate my concern about danger” to the community.
