Los Angeles business owners put up fences, thorny plants to deter homeless: report

Amid the homelessness crisis in Los Angeles, home and business owners are reportedly planting cacti, thorny rosebushes and other deterrents to keep the homeless from sleeping in front of their property.

The homeless population rose from 16 percent from last year, according to The Los Angeles Times.

Many of the obstructions have been put up on public property without the city’s permission.

“In general, a lot of things people have [put] in the public right of way aren’t permitted,” Ted Allen, Los Angeles deputy city engineer told The LA Times.

HOMELESSNESS JUMPS 12 PERCENT ACROSS LOS ANGELES COUNTY DESPITE $619M IN SPENDING

The Los Angeles City Council passed a motion recently to investigate and remove illegal fencing that “restricts free passage in the public right-of-way and report to council on these efforts” but nothing has been done as of yet.

Chain-link fencing on sidewalks is illegal but rarely enforced, some business owners told The LA Times. They say the homeless deter customers and clients from their businesses, leave the streets filthy and can be dangerous to their property.

“When someone lights a fire, it burns on the sidewalk and doesn’t burn the building down,” a textile manufacturing plant owner near USC who put a chain-link fence in front of his business told The LA Times.

The barriers are a temporary solution to the more complicated problem of stemming homelessness in the city. “You can’t address [homelessness] by pushing people around,” a resident who does homeless outreach told The Times. “These issues go unaddressed and allow property owners to do what they want to get people out of sight. That’s a problem.”

New York City proposes building new jails with more ‘welcoming’ experience

The four jails that New York City wants to build to replace its Rikers Island facility will have cells with natural sunlight, space for programming and a children’s play area, officials said Wednesday.

During a public hearing on Wednesday, city officials presented design highlights of the four proposed jails to the City Planning Commission as a part of the next phase of the project’s approval process. The new jails, which would be built in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx, are a part of a larger plan by Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration to close all of the jail facilities on Rikers Island by 2026. The city has allocated $8.7 billion for the project.

The City Planning Commission will vote on the proposal later this summer. If approved, the proposal would head to the New York City Council for a vote.

Cynthia Brann, commissioner of the Department of Correction, displayed a rendering of the facilities that showed a large dayroom surrounded by jail cells, all bathed in sunlight. She said inmates would also have direct access to outdoor recreation spaces.

“Our current facilities are designed for a different era of corrections,” Ms. Brann said. “Modern jails have all of these designs in them, and that is what we are going forward with.”

The jails will provide visitors with a more “welcoming” experience, said Ms. Brann. The lobby would have information desks and kiosks, a place to pay bail and an area for children to play while waiting to visit inmates.

Kentucky police, FBI searching home linked to Savannah Spurlock’s disappearance

Westlake Legal Group spurlock Kentucky police, FBI searching home linked to Savannah Spurlock's disappearance fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/kentucky fox-news/us/crime fox-news/person/savannah-spurlock fox news fnc/us fnc Danielle Wallace article 7495d398-25a7-5a22-9126-c8f876e0913b

Several law enforcement agencies began a search Wednesday night of what is believed to be the last known location of missing Kentucky mom Savannah Spurlock who disappeared seven months ago after leaving a bar in January, officials said.

Spurlock, a mom of four who had given birth to twins in December, was last seen on surveillance video Jan. 4 after leaving the Other Bar in Lexington with two men. Lt. Col. Rodney Richardson, assistant chief of police with the Richmond Police Department, told Fox News that Spurlock’s last known location was at a home in Garrard County – located some 40 miles from the bar.

SAVANNAH SPURLOCK DISAPPEARANCE: HOME TIED TO MAN QUESTIONED IN KENTUCKY MOM CASE SEARCHED, POLICE SAY

Kentucky State Police said they received a tip around 5 p.m. on Wednesday that lead them back to a Garrard County residence. The house belongs to the parents of one of the men Spurlock was last seen with, police said, according to Lexington’s WLEX-TV.  Police have searched the home several times before in the months since Spurlock went missing.

FBI Louisville Evidence Response Team, Kentucky State Police troopers, Richmond Police officers and reps from the coroner’s office began searching the home around 10:30 p.m. after being granted a warrant, WDRB reported. A body has not been found at this time, police said. The coroner’s office was called in as a precaution in case a discovery is made.

Police questioned the two men seen on surveillance as well as a third man but have not filed charges against them. Search and rescue teams that specialize in K9 searches swept the cornfields and a bridge near the home where the mother of four was last tracked in the months since her disappearance. In April, police received a tip that lead them to search a cave but nothing was found, WLEX-TV reported.

260K alien hunters sign up for joke Facebook event to breach Area 51: ‘They can’t stop all of us’

More than 260,000 Facebook users have signed up – and nearly 300,000 more are interested – in an upcoming event called “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us.”

On September 20 at 3 a.m., the group, according to the event details, plans to meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction to “coordinate our entry” inside the restricted military installation.

‘WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF WE FOUND ALIENS?’ SURVEY ASKS

“If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Lets see them aliens,” the tongue-in-cheek event details say. A ‘naruto run’ is associated with an anime character.

“[T]he Rock Throwers will throw pebbles at the inevitable resistance (we dont want to hurt them, we just want to annoy,” one interested poster suggested as a strategy for gaining access to the base’s extraterrestrial secrets.

The secret Nevada Air Force base, a detachment of Edwards Air Force Base, has been a hotbed of alien conspiracy theories for more than half a century, likely due to its history of testing new military aircraft, including the U-2 spy plane in 1955, inside the hush, hush facility.

Federal prosecutors ask for life in prison plus 30 years for ‘El Chapo’

Westlake Legal Group Chapo-RT Federal prosecutors ask for life in prison plus 30 years for 'El Chapo' Talia Kaplan fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/new-york fox-news/us/crime/trials fox-news/us/crime/drugs fox news fnc/us fnc article 8209d5f7-f557-5ab9-91c7-b20bd2e4dfe1

The captured Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman should spend the rest of his life in prison plus another 30 years, federal prosecutors wrote in court documents filed Wednesday.

In a letter sent to Judge Brian Cogan, the prosecutors portrayed Guzman as a “ruthless and bloodthirsty” leader of “one of the most powerful drug trafficking organizations in Mexico.”

Prosecutors wrote, “The horrific nature and circumstances of the defendant’s offense, his history and characteristics and the fact that the defendant committed some of the most serious crimes under federal law make a life sentence warranted.”

EL CHAPO’S BEAUTY QUEEN WIFE DISSES MEDIA’S ‘UNFAIR’ CARICATURE OF HER DRUG-LORD HUSBAND IN RARE INTERVIEW

“The letter is unnecessary because we all knew that if found guilty of the main charge of criminal enterprise then he would spend life in prison which is mandatory,” Guzman’s attorney Mariel Colon Miro told Fox News on Wednesday. “There is nothing less he could get on that charge”

Earlier this month, the judge denied Guzman’s request for an evidentiary hearing, saying the amount of evidence was overwhelming and even without other influencing factors, including media reports, a jury still would have convicted him because of all the evidence.

This past Friday, prosecutors proposed that the convicted kingpin give the U.S. government $12.7 billion, suggesting that Guzman made that money through his drug trafficking empire, Colon Miro confirmed to Fox News.

CRUELTY OF EL CHAPO’S SINALOA CARTEL KNOWS NO BOUNDS

Witnesses testified in court during Guzman’s trial that the drug lord lived a lavish life, owned personal planes and had a private zoo with a tiny train inside it, along with other over-the-top assets.

“It’s ridiculous for the government to think he has all this money,” Colon Miro told Fox News on Wednesday. “The government hasn’t been able to locate a single penny.”

Guzman, 62, was found guilty in February of trafficking tons of cocaine and other drugs into the U.S. as the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel. The three-month trial detailed grisly killings, a bizarre escape and drugs hidden in jalapeno cans.

“El Chapo” was said to have escaped from a Mexican jail in 2001 by hiding in a laundry bin and managed to evade the law by stowing away in one of his mountainside hideaways.

He was recaptured in 2014 but escaped a year later through a mile-long lighted tunnel. Guzman was captured again nearly six months later.

Guzman is scheduled to be sentenced on July 17.

Nevada train derailment wrecks dozens of new cars, pickup trucks

Dozens of brand-new cars and pickup trucks were destroyed Wednesday in a stunning train derailment in Nevada.

The 33-car Union Pacific train was carrying mostly Jeeps and pickup trucks when it derailed just after 9 a.m. in Caliente, a town about 30 miles away from the Nevada-Utah border.

County Road 4230 in Nevada from Elgin to Carp was expected to remain closed for seven to 10 days because of train cars, construction equipment and debris blocking the road, the station reported.

New Orleans residents stunned by severe flooding as tropical system strengthens

NEW ORLEANS – The widespread flooding that inundated many parts of New Orleans on Wednesday astounded even longtime residents of a city that frequently withstands the brunt of hurricanes and tropical storms.

Mayor LaToya Cantrell declared a State of Emergency due to “intense thunderstorms, and the further potential for tropical or hurricane force winds and further thunderstorms”.

“New Orleans may experience more widespread localized severe flooding and gale force winds that could result in the endangerment and threat of life, injury and possible property damage,” Cantrell added.

By early morning, the city had called off work for non-essential employees as streets and sidewalks began to fill with water from the constant onslaught of rain. The Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans said the city had received more than eight inches of rainfall within a three-hour period.

“This morning’s rain came down at an extraordinary rate,” the agency wrote on Twitter. “As an example on Mother’s Day, we received 4.5 inches in 3 hours, today was nearly double.”

NEW ORLEANS, GULF COAST FACE FLOODING THREAT FROM POSSIBLE TROPICAL STORM BARRY

Resident Jena Smith said she was lucky to not have been flooded, but it was a close call for her.

“I left my house early and made it to the office, otherwise my entire car would have been underwater,” she said. “Everybody else got stranded all over the city. It’s just crazy.”

The Mississippi River, which runs through the city, has been engorged for months as snowmelt and rainfall make their way down from the Midwest. Smith said she’s concerned about flooding due to the high water levels and a strengthening tropical system moving along the Gulf Coast that could develop into a Category 1 hurricane.

“It’s a little disconcerting, knowing how high the river is,” Smith said as she looked out onto the Mississippi River. “With the river being so high and pumping stations having issues, areas of the cities that never flooded are flooding now.”

TOXIC ALGAE BLOOM FORCES GULF COAST BEACH CLOSURES

Wayne Harris, visiting from Toronto, said he was a fan of rainfall. However, he really wanted to enjoy his week-long New Orleans vacation in the sun. So, he was hoping the weather system possibly headed in the city’s direction doesn’t stick around for long.

“A couple of days wouldn’t bother me, but it’d be nice if it cleared out of here in a couple of days so we could do a lot more sightseeing and stuff,” he said.

His friend Cathy Ross said she was far less enthused by the impending storm.

“[We have] lots of sightseeing and things planned and I want to be able to get out and do what we’ve planned and what we paid for,” she said.

In the Gert Town section of the city, residents swept up the debris that heavy rain had carried over to their homes. Streets were flooded with water that had slowly begun trickling down sewer drains.

“This is nothing compared to how high the water was,” said a resident who identified herself as just Nancy, as she pointed to a water line that was about a foot high.

Smith said the idea of another Hurricane Katrina-like disaster has crossed her mind, but she’s staying optimistic. Otherwise, she said, you have to let the tropical system run its course.

“I think people in New Orleans have figured out, you just ride with it,” she said. “Take precautions and that’s about all you can do.”

Video shows drivers in Georgia stopping to grab $175,000 in ‘flying’ cash on highway

Video captured more than a dozen people getting out of their vehicles on Tuesday to grab money that was flying all over a Georgia interstate, police said.

Dunwoody police responded to Interstate 285 around 8 p.m. Tuesday after about $175,000 was reported to be “flying all over the road,” said Sgt. Robert Parsons, public information officer.

GUESTS AT DISNEY WORLD CLAIM GUNS WENT MISSING FROM THEIR CARS

The 911 callers reported that more than 15 vehicles had stopped on the interstate in Dunwoody, some 17 miles from Atlanta, and people were “frantically taking the money,” according to a post on the Dunwoody Police Department’s Facebook page.

The post said when officers arrived, they spotted an armored truck on the right shoulder of the interstate.

“The armored car crew said the side door came open while they were driving and money spilled out onto 285,” police said.

Parsons told Fox News that the crew was not sure exactly how much money spilled out of the truck, but reported it to be about $175,000.

“The company has yet to confirm the exact amount,” Parsons added.

Police said officers and the armored truck crew gathered a few hundred dollars still on hand when officers arrived, “but plenty was taken by passerby’s sticky fingers.”

“While we certainly understand the temptation, it’s still theft and the money should be returned,” police said in the Facebook post on Tuesday.

“We are thankful there were no crashes or pedestrians struck as a result of this isolated cash storm.”

On Wednesday, Dunwoody police wrote on the department’s Facebook page that some people have been bringing back the scattered bills.

The post included a picture of a man returning cash and said, “So, believe it or not, some people have been returning the money that fell from the armored car on I-285.”

“We understand it was a bizarre occurrence, but do the right thing and return the money,” police wrote in the post.

Mom, boyfriend charged after missing 3-year-old girl found dead in Virginia river

A southwestern Virginia mother and her boyfriend were arrested Wednesday after authorities found the body of a missing 3-year-old girl in a local river.

The Wythe County Sheriff’s Office said that Kimberly Dawn Moore, 45, and Adrian Neil Puckett, also 45, have been charged with felony child neglect with reckless disregard for life and felony child endangerment in the death of Josie Burleson. The sheriff’s office added that more charges were possible and the investigation is ongoing.

Investigators say Josie was reported missing just before 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. When questioned, Moore and Puckett told authorities that the girl was playing outside a house they were visiting near the New River Trail and wandered away. The house in question is located within 150 yards of the river.

VIRGINIA POLICE SAY MISSING BOY, 2, IS DEAD; MOM ARRESTED IN DISAPPEARANCE

The sheriff’s office said more than 100 people searched for Josie in nearby fields, along adjacent trails and in the New River, where the girl’s body was found shortly after 1 a.m.

Wythe County Sheriff Keith Dunagan told The Roanoke Times that authorities did not know how long Josie was missing before her disappearance was reported because Moore and Puckett “were on meth and they made two or three different statements, and we don’t know which one is correct.”

The sheriff added that investigators believe Josie wandered to the edge of the river looking for a swing she had visited in the past.

“They found her footprints in the mud at the edge of the river,” Dunagan told the Times. “The current was swift there, and we believe it carried her down the river.”
