Otto Warmbier honored by rock band Bennett Wales & The Relief with new song, plea for justice

The song starts fast but leaves a lasting impression and forceful message.

It is called, “Hey Otto,” a rock ‘n’ roll tune honoring Otto Warmbier and serving as a musical reminder of his cruel fate and the unforgiving brutality of North Korea’s Kim Jong Un regime.

“He was only a few years younger than myself,” said songwriter Bennett Wales, the frontman of the group who recorded the song, Bennett Wales & The Relief. “When he was released in a vegetative state it was heartbreaking, and watching a doctored confession on behalf of the North Korean regime that had him read it, tore me up a little bit.”

Wales and his bandmates, a group based out of Virginia Beach, Va., decided they had to get the message about him out in a creative way, using music to touch the nation.

“Music is a very communicative platform, and especially rock ‘n’ roll. Rock ‘n’ roll has a really proud history of standing up for the injustices of the word and especially in individual cases, like Otto’s,” Wales explained. “A lot of people are totally unaware of his story.”

The rock band Bennett Wales and The Relief wrote the song “Hey Otto” to honor Warmbier and call attention to North Korea’s brutality. (@thereliefva)

Otto Warmbier was a 22-year-old University of Virginia student from Ohio, who was arrested and falsely accused of tearing down a propaganda poster when he was on a student tour of North Korea in 2015. U.S. officials said the regime tortured him and sent him home to Cincinnati in 2017 unable to speak or hear, and in a vegetative state. He died days after his return.

The music video interposed footage of Warmbier, Kim Jong Un, President Trump and North Korean scenes, ending with a smiling photo of Otto showing the dates of his birth and death.

“They broke your body and they sent you home, too little too late you were already gone,” part of the lyrics read. “Nobody seen and nobody heard, and out of sight, out of mind, no justice served.”

The refrain includes the phrase, “I remember and I know who you are, I’ll write your name in the stripes and the stars,” and, “Hey Otto, they got to know.”

JAMES CARAFANO: NORTH KOREA’S CORONAVIRUS PROBLEM AND HOW SECRECY WILL MAKE IT WORSE

“Probably the most rewarding thing was getting a phone call from [Otto’s mother] Cindy Warmbier. She was so gracious and thankful. It was an affirmation that this is why we do it, this is the power that music can have,” Wales said. “The main message is that they are not alone in their grief, not alone in their frustration, not alone in seeking answers and figuring out what happened to Otto, when it happened, and who is responsible and finding those responsible and holding them criminally accountable.”

In a statement to Fox News, Cindy Warmbier said she’s thankful that the band recorded the song. She also said this about “Hey Otto”:

“I interpret the song as a call for accountability on what North Korea did to our son, Otto. Why the Obama administration chose to do nothing, never demanding Otto’s release or ever reach out to help our family. And finally, a call to our current government to fully exonerate Otto and expose the truth about North Korea.”

“My hope is that more people will hear the story and demand answers,” Wales added. “I would like to see some answers and justice for the Warmbiers, for his family and friends who have been trying to find the answers.”

He continued, “This is a young man who had his whole life ahead of him. He was loved dearly by all of his friends and family. He was very successful at school, an awesome guy, and I hope we can find the answers and have some accountability for the people who were responsible.”

The song has had more than 100,000 downloads and can be heard on the group’s website, TheReliefmusic.com, YouTube or here.

Besides Wales, The Relief also includes Mike Fischetti on bass, Drew Orton on drums, Brock Bittner on lead guitar and Caleb Little on the organ.

Ohio inmate falls through ceiling, lands in trash during failed jailbreak caught on video

An Ohio inmate’s brazen jailbreak attempt last month was caught on video, with the recording showing her falling through the ceiling of a holding room and landing headfirst in a trash can surrounded by cops.

Jessica Boomershine, 42, was at the Montgomery County Jail facility in Dayton on Jan. 21 when she dragged a chair across the floor of the holding room and tried to climb through the tiled ceiling.

Surveillance video released by the county sheriff’s office shows Boomershine disappearing into the ceiling as other inmates appear to cheer her on. But seconds later, ceiling tiles fall to the floor and her legs reappear.

One guard grabs Boomershine’s legs and pulls her down. She crashes headfirst into a wastebasket that then tips over.

Boomershine was charged with escape and vandalism, according to county jail records. Her attorney, Kyle Lennen, declined to comment Friday when The Associated Press asked about the mishap.

Boomershine was in jail on charges of kidnapping and robbing an 85-year-old Dayton-area man last month, records stated. She and a co-defendant broke into the man’s home after meeting him at a casino, according to prosecutor Mat Heck.

The pair took the man’s gun, forced him to provide the code to his bank card, withdrew money from his account, placed him in the trunk of his car and then abandoned the vehicle near a trash facility, the prosecutor’s office said. The man escaped and was later found inside the trash facility.

Kent State ‘gun girl’ confronted by protesters at Ohio University

Conservative gun-rights activist Kaitlin Bennett, who went viral in 2018 as the “Kent State gun girl,” was confronted by protesters during her visit to Ohio University Monday.

IOWA’S DHS IGNORED MORE THAN A DOZEN CHILD ABUSE COMPLAINTS BEFORE 16-YEAR-OLD NATALIE FINN’S STARVATION DEATH: REPORT

Sharing video of an angry crowd appearing to curse at her and toss a clear liquid into the open window of her truck, Bennett claimed the event amounted to a “riot.” She also called on President Trump to strip federal funding from the university for harboring “terrorists” after she said campus police just “let it happen.”

“This is what happens when a Trump supporter goes to a college campus. Leftists at @ohiou started a riot when @Joelpatrick1776 and I showed up, and the @oupolice let it happen,” Bennett tweeted. “I think @realDonaldTrump should strip funding from universities like this that harbor terrorists.”

VIRGINIA LAWMAKERS REJECT NORTHAM’S ASSAULT-WEAPONS BAN, AS DEMS BALK

Bennett’s first claim to fame came in May 2018 after she posed with an AR-10 rifle immediately following her graduation from Kent State University,  about 40 miles south of Cleveland. She wore a white dress, had her gun slung over her shoulder and flashed a graduation cap that read “Come and take it.”

Bennett’s aim was to condemn the school’s “insulting” anti-gun policies. As a student, she wasn’t allowed to openly carry a firearm on the campus.  Ohio is an open-carry state.

A Second Amendment supporter and grassroots director for libertarian website Liberty Hangout, Bennett has appeared in a series of online videos in which she takes to the street to ask members of the public their opinion on issues, including abortion and gun control.

She visited Ohio University’s public campus in Athens Monday to shoot a video asking students trivia questions about Presidents Day, The Athens News first reported.

Other social media users shared video of crowds shouting at her both inside and outside of campus buildings. In some footage being shared online, Bennett could be seen being carried out by her private security guard.

“We’re currently running Kaitlin Bennett (Kent state gun girl) out of OU,” one user wrote over a video showing the Ohio University geotag in Athens.

“#PoopyPants @KaitMarieox didn’t have a good time at OU today. Got picked up by her bodyguard and taken away in a hurry,” the same user, Nfinite Buchmn, wrote in a tweet with the video. “She probably had an emergency she had to take care of. 💩”

“So Kent state gun girl came to Ohio University and it didn’t end well lol. #OU,” another user tweeted, sharing a video showing Bennett and her team descending an elevator from the second floor of a campus building flooded with protesters.

Ohio University Police released a statement following the incident, explaining that “an activist appeared unexpectedly” on the campus in Athens where she “engaged in a constitutionally protected activity.”

“She drew a large crowd of people, many with opposing viewpoints, who also chose to exercise their First Amendment rights,” the statement said. “Ohio university police officers were present throughout the incident to protect everyone’s rights and safety; other than keeping streets and other public rights of way clear, no police officers asked anyone to leave at any point in time.

“Contrary to allegations circulating on social media, the incident did not rise to the level of a riot,” university police said. “There was strong language, and allegations that some unknown person(s) in the crown splashed water, but there were no reported injuries or violence, and no one was arrested during the event.”

The statement also noted that, although it’s not required, the activist did not give the policy prior notice of her plans, depriving “the department of the ability to plan staffing levels.”

Hollywood stuntwoman, husband killed after shootout: reports

Westlake Legal Group HollywoodSigniStock Hollywood stuntwoman, husband killed after shootout: reports fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/ohio fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/us fnc David Aaro article 14cc6f60-ca34-5336-9559-38b0e1bdbb5b

A Hollywood stuntwoman who appeared in “Back To The Future II” and was a stunt double for Cameron Diaz, Charlize Theron, Jessica Alba and Uma Thurman was killed in a shootout Wednesday in Ohio, according to multiple reports.

Cheryl Sanders, 59, and husband Robert Reed Sanders allegedly approached her ex-husband Lindsey Duncan and his new wife Molly at their Yellow Springs home — leading to a shootout with hundreds of shots fired.

Duncan said he and his wife were returning home to pick up mail and a delivery at their gate when Reed, allegedly wearing a mask and hoodie, held a gun to his wife’s head.

“The word ‘ambush’ is exactly what it was,” Molly Duncan said at a press conference on Friday. “We were caught off guard. They said nothing and they started shooting at us.”

Reed Sanders was reportedly shot first, before Cheryl, who was armed also arrived and was killed in the gunfire, police said. They were both shot and killed by Duncan, the Dayton Daily News said.

A former business partner with Sanders, Adrian King said the shootout stemmed from a dispute over college funds for the daughters of Lindsey and Cheryl. Molly Duncan said the couple didn’t say anything when the gunfire began.

Police didn’t respond to questions regarding the statement by the Duncans, although an incident report lists the case as justifiable homicide.

Even after the shootout described as “sudden hell,” the hardest part for Duncan is “having to tell my two daughters that their mother’s [Sanders] been shot,” according to Dayton247now.

Authorities recovered three firearms and were looking for surveillance video, police said. They said that Lindsey Duncan has a concealed carry permit.

“It is with a very broken heart that we share that Cheryl Wheeler Sanders was killed by gunfire on February 12, 2020, the statement said. “She was a dear friend and a wonderful person who often dealt with more in life than anyone should have to deal with.”

Ohio high school girls basketball hair-pulling incident under investigation

An incident over the weekend involving two Ohio high school girl basketball players was under investigation, a school district said.

During a game Saturday, a Bellevue High School athlete pulled a girl from Norwalk High School down to the court by the hair. The altercation occurred after a missed 3-pointer by the Bellevue player. It wasn’t clear what sparked the incident.

NEWARK HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL COACH ATTACKED ON VIDEO, ALLEGEDLY BY HIS OWN PLAYERS

The Norwalk coach was irate after the play. None of the referees standing nearby apparently saw it.

“First and foremost, I am concerned with the health of our injured student athlete,” Norwalk superintendent George Fisk told WTOL-TV in an email. “She is a fantastic, hardworking young lady and in no way deserved the aggressive unsportsmanlike action taken against her. I have been in contact with the administration of Bellevue City Schools; they have assured me that appropriate action will be taken upon the conclusion of their investigation. Additionally, it is my hope the Ohio High School Athletic Association will not remain silent and uninvolved in this situation.”

Bellevue superintendent Kim Schubert told the station Tuesday that there was disciplinary action, but didn’t address it specifically.

“Since viewing the video on Saturday, with the knowledge that no foul was called during the game, we quickly came to the conclusion that it would be our obligation to address the incident with disciplinary action and we have done so,” Schubert said. “I hope that this clarification will provide a conclusion to this situation leaving no doubt that the situation was immediately addressed. Our priority is the health and safety of all student athletes, including athletes at opposing schools and our own athletes.”

Family members of the Norwalk athlete told WTOL-TV that she was recovering and still being evaluated.

The Ohio State High School Athletic Association said officials reviewed the video and would allow Bellevue first crack at the discipline.

Chimney where Ohio teen was found dead has been removed, police say

The chimney where 14-year-old Harley Dilly was found dead earlier this month has been removed, according to Ohio’s Port Clinton Police Department.

Chief Rob Hickman said on Facebook that the decision to remove the structure was made by the homeowners “out of respect” for Dilly’s parents.

“Good Afternoon Friends, Out of respect for Harley’s parents, the homeowners at the address on Fulton Street removed the chimney this morning along with our (City of Port Clinton) assistance,” the statement by Hickman read.

BODY OF MISSING OHIO TEEN FOUND IN CHIMNEY, POLICE SAY

Dilly was found dead in the empty Port Clinton home on the evening of Jan. 13, located across the street from where he and his family lived, Hickman said. The teenager had been missing since Dec. 20, when he left for school but never arrived, investigators say.

The Lucas County Coroner’s Office later determined the cause of death was compressive asphyxia, according to Cleveland’s FOX 8

Police searched weeks for Dilly, with volunteers and authorities searching neighborhoods along Lake Erie with help from K-9 teams and helicopters.

“This appears to be an accident; at this time there does not appear to be any foul play expected,” Hickman said at the time. He added: “It appears Harley climbed an antenna tower to the roof and entered the chimney.”

Trump Organization executive vice president Eric Trump said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and her party’s impeachment of his father will ultimately end in his reelection this coming November.

“Pelosi sounds crazy every time she speaks,” Trump told Jesse Watters on Saturday’s “Watters’ World.” “She’ll actually go down as the worst Speaker, arguably, in the history of our country  — and [Democrats] keep on pushing this nonsense. And it’s going to get my father re-elected. Honestly, I hope they keep going.”

TRUMP HONORS LSU TIGERS AT WHITE HOUSE

Trump said he visited central Ohio earlier this week and spoke to many voters who urged him to tell the president to continue to work on the American people’s behalf while Democrats focus on impeachment.

“This impeachment thing is walking my father into 2020. I mean it’s — the amount of money we’re raising in the campaign,” said the younger Trump, who added that Ohioans told him his father was “killing it” and that Democrats’ actions are “a disgrace.”

Eric Trump added that Democrats are showing they do not have the pulse of Middle America.

“They don’t know the sentiment of this country, but they’re preaching to everybody because they went to Harvard and they went to these nice schools,” he said. “And they miss it every single time.”

The president’s second son also reacted to this week’s arrest of onetime Stormy Daniels attorney and vocal Trump critic Michael Avenatti by Internal Revenue Service agents.

“CNN was begging him to run for president of the United States and now he’s going to jail,” he remarked. “I mean, the hypocrisy of these people.”
