Woman slashed outside Brooklyn Whole Foods during robbery attempt: police

A woman was slashed by a thief outside a Whole Foods in Brooklyn Monday night before a store security guard stepped in and detained the man at gunpoint until police arrived, police said.

The suspect approached the woman while she was sitting in her car at about 9:30 p.m. in the Whole Foods parking lot on Third Avenue near Third Street in Gowanus, cops and a witness said.

He then slashed her in the hands before she reversed out of the parking spot, authorities said.

“As soon as I heard the scream, she reversed and pulled out — fast,” a witness who asked not to be named said. “I thought like no regard — she’s just trying to get the freak out of there.”

“He told people to call 911,” the witness said of the security guard.

Lawyers for Massachusetts woman who encouraged boyfriend’s suicide appeal to Supreme Court

Lawyers for the Massachusetts woman who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for encouraging her suicidal boyfriend to kill himself urged the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday to throw out her conviction because it violated her right to free speech.

Michelle Carter’s lawyers called her conviction in Conrad Roy III’s death “unprecedented,” saying it raises crucial questions about whether “words alone” are enough to hold someone responsible for someone’s suicide.

“Michelle Carter did not cause Conrad Roy’s tragic death and should not be held criminally responsible for his suicide,” Daniel Marx, one of her lawyers, said.

Carter was jailed in February after Massachusetts’ Supreme Court unanimously upheld her conviction in the death of the then-18-year-old Roy. Carter, now 22, is serving a 15-month sentence.

The court agreed with a judge who found that Carter caused Roy’s July 2014 death when she told him in a phone call to get back in his truck as it was filling with carbon monoxide and didn’t call Roy’s family or the police.

The phone call wasn’t recorded, but the judge focused on a text message Carter sent a friend two months later in which she said Roy had gotten out of the truck because he was scared and she told him to get back in.

TEXAS MAN FATALLY SHOOTS HIS SISTER BEFORE TURNING GUN ON HIMSELF IN SUSPECTED MURDER-SUICIDE

Carter’s lawyers said in their Supreme Court petition that the Massachusetts justices acknowledged that not everyone who verbally encourages someone to take their own life should be prosecuted but provided “no guidance to distinguish sympathetic cases of assisted suicide from culpable cases of unlawful killing.”

Pelosi calls for Acosta to step down over Epstein plea deal, hits Trump

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6056644868001_6056649489001-vs Pelosi calls for Acosta to step down over Epstein plea deal, hits Trump fox-news/us/crime fox-news/politics/elections/house-of-representatives fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox news fnc/politics fnc Edmund DeMarche b5cbf02c-7857-5e05-87cb-b8256c1f84c8 article

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi late Monday called on Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta to step down for what she called an “unconscionable agreement” with Jeffrey Epstein, who was charged earlier with sex trafficking in New York City federal court.

Acosta, who was a U.S. attorney in Miami back in 2008, helped Epstein secure a plea deal that resulted in an 18-month sentence. He served 13 months. The deal was criticized as lenient because he could have faced a life sentence.

Pelosi said in a tweet late Monday that Acosta’s agreement with Epstein was kept from his “young victims” and prevented them from seeking justice. She said Trump was aware of the background when Acosta was appointed.

Acosta negotiated a deal that resulted in two state solicitation charges—a felony—and resulted in county jail. There were no federal charges. The Washington Post reported that Epstein was allowed to work from his office six days a week. The alleged victims were not told about the deal, the report said.

The Miami Herald called the allegations back then “stomach-turning.” They included allegations that the wealthy financier lured dozens of troubled girls to an estate in Palm Beach and had sex with them. The paper’s editorial called the allegations a “Ponzi scheme,” because he would allegedly use new girls to recruit more.

BILL CLINTON KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT EPSTEIN’S ‘TERRIBLE CRIMES,’ EX-SPOKESMAN SAYS

The Herald’s editorial said that in 2008, Acosta kept the alleged victims out of the process and failed to “even inform them of his lenient plea deal with Epstein. In February, U.S. Judge Kenneth Marra ruled that Acosta’s office broke the law by not telling Epstein’s victims of the sweetheart deal. In contrast, [U.S. Attorney Geoffrey] Berman, has issued a public call for women to contact his office to help him build his sex-trafficking case against Epstein.”

Acosta has defended the plea deal as appropriate under the circumstances, though the White House said in February that it was “looking into” his handling of the deal.

Epstein, the 66-year-old hedge fund manager, was charged in a newly unsealed federal indictment with sex trafficking and conspiracy during the early 2000s. He could get up to 45 years in prison if convicted. Prosecutors alleged that Epstein, who was arrested on Saturday, preyed on “dozens” of victims as young as 14.

Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., told Fox News that Epstein’s initial sentence was “absurd” and said it is not a time “for people to say, ‘oh, is a Republican or Democrat going to be implicated?’ Every American should stand on the side of those little girls.”

Two White House officials told The Washington Post that Trump does not have plans to force out Acosta.

Epstein has pleaded not guilty.

Arizona man fatally stabbed teen listening to rap because he felt ‘unsafe,’ police say

Authorities on Tuesday said an Arizona man fatally stabbed a teen last week because he felt threatened by the teen’s choice of music: rap.

The encounter happened Thursday at a Circle K in Peoria, about a 25-minute drive northwest of Phoenix, according to reports.

Witnesses told police that Michael Adams, 27, walked up to a 17-year-old who was listening to rap music and stabbed him the throat, Phoenix’s Fox 10 reported. The teen – identified as Elijah Al-Amin –reportedly stumbled outside the Circle K and died.

Adams allegedly told officers he felt “unsafe” by the teen’s choice of music. He allegedly said he had been attacked before by people listening to rap, the station reported.

He allegedly said he wanted to prevent an attack, but admitted the victim did nothing to provoke him.

The Arizona Department of Corrections said Adams had been released from jail two days before the alleged stabbing. Adam’s lawyer told Fox 10 that his client has a history of mental illness and was released from jail without medication.

Adams was booked into a Maricopa County jail on suspicion of first-degree premeditated murder, the Arizona Republic reported. He is being held a $1 million cash bond and will appear in court next on July 15, the report said.

A teen was arrested Monday in the Texas Fourth of July road rage shooting that caused fireworks to explode inside a moving pickup, burning two small children and their parents.

Bayron Rivera, 18, was charged with four counts of aggravated assault in connection with the incident near Ella, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez told a news conference. Rivera was arrested after surrendering to deputies Sunday night.

“This started as a road rage incident,” Lt. Jeff Stauber, commander of Gonzalez’s Violent Crime Unit. “Both parties had an opportunity to break it off somewhere during the incident.”

Gonzalez said about 20 minutes elapsed between the initial encounter and the gunfire.

The shots were fired from an AR-15 rifle, which was recovered, the sheriff said. The shots set off fireworks the family had just purchased.

A day after the shooting, Gonzalez released surveillance video showing the pickup pulling out of a gas station after being shot at and then bursting into flames as the fireworks ignite.

Investigators said they looking for a Ford Expedition seen in the video that they believed the gunman was driving and that fled the scene.

Louisiana man arrested after allegedly licking ice cream, placing it back on shelf in ‘copycat’ video

A “copycat” ice cream licker was arrested in Louisiana on Saturday in the weeks after he was caught on video allegedly licking ice cream in a grocery store and putting it back in the fridge.

Lenise Martin III, 36, was taken into custody after video of him circulating online apparently showed him doing the deed. Martin appears to open a tub of ice cream, lick it, touch it with his finger, and then place it back on the freezer shelf.

When management became aware of the video, Martin returned to the store to prove he purchased the ice cream, WAFB reported.

Martin was charged with criminal mischief and unlawful posting of criminal activity for notoriety and publicity, and remained jailed as of Monday morning, according to online records from the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office.

ICE CREAM TRUCK OWNER TO CHARGE SOCIAL MEDIA INFLUENCERS DOUBLE: ‘WE TRULY DON’T CARE’

His alleged criminal act was seemingly inspired by that of a girl who was caught on camera doing the same thing — licking a tub of ice cream, specifically Blue Bell brand, and placing it back on the shelf — at a Walmart in Lufkin, Texas.

Reports indicate that Martin licked a tub of Blue Bell ice cream, but that information was not immediately clear. Blue Bell worked to help track down the store in Texas where the ice cream-licking took place.

The sheriff’s office in Louisiana, meanwhile, is discouraging such copycat acts.

“It is illegal. It’s a health risk to others. We will pursue anyone we see do this. You will be charged,” officials said.

Virginia dad fires 39 shots at naked ‘devil’ who broke into family’s home on first night living there: report

A Virginia dad on Thursday fired 39 warning shots and brawled with a naked woman who called herself “the devil” after she allegedly broke into the family’s home on their first night living there, according to reports.

The violent confrontation happened in Chesterfield County on the evening of the Fourth of July, police said.

A female suspect who was naked and with blue hair in a ponytail broke into the family’s home and refused to leave, telling them: “I’m the devil,” WRIC reported.

The dad of the family fired 39 “warning shots” at the intruder, but she was undeterred, WTVR reported. A brawl broke out between the woman and the family — including the 12-year-old son, the station reported.

Punches and furniture were reportedly thrown about. The fight ended after the 12-year-old shoved a wrench into the intruder’s neck, WRIC reported.

“She had the strength of four grown men,” the father later told the station.

Both the dad and the intruder were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, police said. Neither of their identifies was released.

A GoFundMe account has been set up to repair the damage to the family’s new home. A photo on the page shows the walls ridden with bullet holes and blood strewn about the flood.

“First night in our beautiful home when an intruder decides to enter our home and tries to take our life one at a time,” read a post on the GoFundMe page. “We have lost our home we have lost furniture We have lost it all.”

Second son dies a week after mom’s drowning attempt: report

A 7-year-old boy was taken off life support Sunday at California’s Valley Children’s Hospital while surrounded by family a week after authorities believe his mother took him and his 12-year-old brother to a rural irrigation ditch and tried to drown them.

Deputies found Jackson Telnas, 12, and his 7-year-old brother, Jacob Ray Telnas, unresponsive in an irrigation ditch full of water last Saturday in Porterville, Calif., according to the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office and local media. Jackson had suffered a traumatic brain injury, likely the result of drowning, the Visalia Times Delta reported.  

“They had an hour with Jacob Ray to love up on him, Jacob got a chance to spend time with him and tell him how much he loves him,” Diana Keeland, their grandmother told ABC 7.

Sherri Telnas, 45, who was arraigned last week, had already faced one count of murder with the special circumstance of lying in wait, the report said. She could be eligible for the death penalty.

She allegedly told deputies that she drowned the kids because they were possessed.

Jackson was 10 months old when Telnas tried to drown him in the Clark Fork River in Montana in 2008, the Mineral Independent reported at the time. During questioning, Telnas said “bad thoughts or voices” had told her to drown the baby, according to the paper.

In 2009 she pleaded guilty to lesser counts of criminal endangerment and was placed on probation for 20 years, according to the Independent.
