Plymouth Rock vandalized with graffiti shortly before 400th anniversary celebration

Plymouth Rock and other landmarks were found vandalized Monday in a disturbing discovery as the city of Plymouth, Mass., gears up to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the pilgrims’ arrival to the new world on the Mayflower.

The famous rock at the site of their 1620 landing was found with its inscription covered with red graffiti.

Also vandalized: a sign celebrating the anniversary, the Pilgrim Maiden statue and the National Monument to the Forefathers, according to town officials. The graffiti included an obscene spray-painted message directed at police.

Also damaged were four artworks in the shape of scallops, the Plymouth Chamber of Commerce said.

Plymouth Town Manager Melissa G. Arrighi called the vandalism “unfathomable and unconscionable.”

“We are saddened and sickened by the recent vandalism in our historic town,” she tweeted. “We will begin clean up as soon as possible and the police are investigating.”

By Monday evening, cleanup was underway to restore the monuments. The forefather’s monument had been cleaned along with the four scallop shells, town officials said in a Facebook post. The Pilgrim Maiden Statue was cleaned but crews said they wanted to return with a different chemical solution for further treatment.

“Seeing this type of disrespect for the historic reminders of the Mayflower story is both sad and unsettling,” said Lea Filson, the executive director of the See Plymouth tourism group. “The outpouring of concern and anger over the incident has been a positive ending to a thoughtless gesture.”

The celebration of the 400th anniversary is scheduled to begin in April.

Lisa Boothe: How Bernie Sanders can get on a roll after New Hampshire and become ‘unstoppable’

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders could get “on a roll” within the next few 2020 races and become “unstoppable,” Fox News contributor Lisa Boothe said Tuesday.

Appearing on “America’s Newsroom” with hosts Sandra Smith and Ed Henry, and fellow Fox News contributor Jessica Tarlov, Boothe said that Sanders’ longstanding campaign in states like Nevada sets him ahead of other 2020 Democratic contenders.

“You look at states like California which are enormously expensive to play and you’re talking about over a dozen media markets or something like that,” Boothe remarked. “It’s an incredibly expensive state.”

“Bernie Sanders has already invested a lot in California. So has [former New York City Mayor Mike] Bloomberg. So, you look ahead at some of these contests and it is too late to kind of build that organizational structure that you need to win in both these early states and then the Super Tuesday states” she added.

BIDEN ABRUPTLY CANCELS NEW HAMPSHIRE PRIMARY PARTY APPEARANCE, HEADS TO SOUTH CAROLINA

Boothe told Tarlov and the “Newsroom” hosts that Sanders would likely win the New Hampshire primary race Tuesday evening and “might win Nevada,” giving him some “serious wind at [his] back.”

“He could potentially win California,” Boothe continued, “which is a hugely delegate-rich state.”

“I mean, Bernie Sanders could catch on a roll and catch steam that might be unstoppable,” Boothe predicted.

As he did in Iowa, Sanders is stressing to his supporters that “if we have the highest voter turnout in New Hampshire primary history, I am confident that we are going to win here in New Hampshire and if we win here in New Hampshire, we’re going to set the pace to win Nevada and South Carolina and California.” But meeting expectations in a state where he crushed eventual nominee Hillary Clinton four years ago is crucial for Sanders.

The independent closed out his bid in the first primary state with a massive rally and concert that drew over 7,500 to the University of New Hampshire at Durham — it was by far the largest crowd for any Democratic presidential candidate in New Hampshire this cycle.

The first-in-the-nation presidential primary follows last week’s Iowa Caucuses, which were plagued by technical issues that left both Sanders and former South Bend, Ind., mayor Pete Buttigieg claiming victory. Although polls are set to open late Tuesday for most of the granite state, voters in Dixville Notch came out at midnight.

The small community – located near the Canadian border – needed five registered voters to open its polls and saw three write-in votes for Bloomberg. Sanders and Buttigieg both had one vote, WMUR.com reported.

Additionally, Hart’s Location, another small town in the White Mountains, has had early voting since 1948. Voters there came out for Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who received six votes. The Minnesota hopeful inched out Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who received four votes. Andrew Yang and Sanders both received three votes. President Trump, who is running on the Republican side, had 15 votes, the WMUR website reported.

Millsfield, a town 12 miles south of Dixville Notch, also opened the polls at midnight. Trump scored 16 votes while Klobuchar walked away with two votes. Former Vice President Joe Biden, Sanders, and Buttigieg all received one vote.

Massachusetts waitress gets $2G tip on $12 check

This surprise truly tipped the scales in her favor.

A Massachusetts waitress was shocked to receive a $2,000 tip on a $12 lunch bill from an incredibly generous customer.

Last Wednesday, a server identified as Leena was tipped with the windfall during her lunch rush shift at the Harvest Market restaurant in Swansea. Leena was reportedly juggling multiple tables as the only server on duty when she received the unbelievable gratuity on a $12.21 bill for a salad bar and fountain drink, The Herald News reports.

According to the Associated Press, the mysterious tipper paid for his meal with a credit card, gave the receipt to the Harvest Market host and requested that she ensure Leena got the tip.

When the waitress realized the size of the tip, she ran into the parking lot to thank the customer – but he was already gone.

“I couldn’t believe it,” she said.

Massachusetts man with crossbow accidentally kills neighbor being attacked by pit bulls

A pit bull attack  led to the accidental killing of a western Massachusetts man with a crossbow, prosecutors said.

It happened in an apartment in Adams, Mass., Wednesday. The two dogs belonged to the victim, Joshua Jadusingh, 27, Berkshire County District Attorney Andrea Harrington told a news conference, according to reports.

She said Thursday the man who fired the crossbow was a neighbor of Jadusingh’s. She called the man a “good Samaritan.”

The neighbor heard Jadusingh’s screams for help and retrieved the crossbow he uses for hunting when he saw what was happening, WBZ-TV reported.

Harrington said that the neighbor was standing at the bottom of a staircase when he fired the crossbow at one of the pit bulls standing at the top of the stairs in front of a door Jadusingh was hiding, trying to get away from the dogs, according to the station.

“The neighbor shot the crossbow, hit the dog in the scruff of the neck,” she said. “The dog did not die, but the crossbow, it’s called a bolt, the bolt went through the door and unfortunately hit somebody behind the door.”

The pit bulls had a history of fighting and aggression, the station reported.

Their names were Max and Durma, WAMC-TV reported.

Harrington said the dogs were shot and killed after hurling themselves at officers called to the scene, according to the station.

Jadusingh’s young daughter was in the apartment at the time. She was not injured.

Harrington said the neighbor wouldn’t be charged.

“He was actually quite good friends with his neighbor, and he knew that there was a child in the home, and it was a really, really difficult and stressful situation for him to be in and I think he did his best under the circumstances,” she said, WAMC reported.

Massachusetts prison officers who allegedly beat handcuffed inmate, destroyed evidence, are arrested

Westlake Legal Group Prison-Cells Massachusetts prison officers who allegedly beat handcuffed inmate, destroyed evidence, are arrested Nick Givas fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/massachusetts fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/us/crime fox-news/politics/justice-department fox news fnc/us fnc article a2af5614-47d3-5bad-afb9-967fff4234f9

Two Massachusetts prison officers were arrested Thursday for their involvement in allegedly beating a handcuffed inmate and destroying video evidence of the assault.

Officials said Seth M. Bourget, 39, of Woodstock, Conn., and Joseph M. Lavorato, 51, of Wilmington, Mass., were indicted for an incident that took place over the summer at the U.S. Bureau Prisons Federal Medical Center (FMC) in Devens, according to a Department of Justice (DOJ) press release.

According to the indictment, the alleged assault took place in June 2019 when Bourget dropped his knee on an inmate’s head while he was handcuffed and restrained in the mental health housing unit. Bourget also allegedly hit him with a protective shield, causing bodily injury.

Bourget, a senior correctional officer at FMC Devens, was indicted on two counts of deprivation of civil rights under color of law, the DOJ said. Lavorato, a lieutenant, was also indicted on obstruction of an official proceeding and destruction and falsification of records in a federal investigation.

Lavorato is accused of obstructing the investigation by “purposely failing to timely and accurately report the nature and extent of [the] inmate’s injuries and intentionally concealing the existence of a video recording of the incident in an official report.”

The U.S. Attorney’s Office claimed Lavorato destroyed a video recording of the assault and filed a false report that blamed a malfunctioning security camera for the missing footage.

CHICAGO MAN, 19, FOUND BEATEN TO DEATH IN HIS JAIL CELL, OFFICIALS SAY

U.S. Attorney Andrew E. Lelling said the DOJ is committed to rooting out corruption within the ranks of America’s correctional officers and claimed these criminal actions are a slap in the face to those who serve the prison system with honor and duty.

“These corrections officers abused their authority and the public’s trust by allegedly injuring a vulnerable inmate and then attempting to cover it up,” he said. “This conduct is an affront to the law enforcement officers who serve honorably every day and fulfill their duties with fairness and integrity. Today’s charges reflect the Justice Department’s commitment to prosecuting official misconduct.”

The charge of willful deprivation of civil rights under color of law carries a sentence of up to 10 years in prison, two years of supervised release and a fine of up to $250,000. The charge of obstruction of an official proceeding and the destruction and falsification of a record in a federal investigation carries a sentence of up to 20 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of up to $250,000.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI’s) Boston branch tweeted about the case on Thursday.

“Great power and responsibility are sewn into a Bureau of Prisons uniform. But that uniform and the oath taken by those who wear it is not a license to use excessive force on a vulnerable prisoner, or to allegedly cover up a subordinate’s reprehensible behavior by attempting to destroy evidence of that abuse,” Special Agent in Charge Joseph R. Bonavolonta said.

“Civil rights are everyone’s rights, and we will continue to investigate anyone who violates their professional responsibility to keep others safe and secure,” he added.

Both men were set to appear in Boston federal court on Thursday afternoon.

Tom Steyer on Democratic presidential race: ‘You have to do well in Iowa’

Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer said Saturday that he hopes to pick up momentum after Monday’s Iowa caucuses.

Appearing on “Cavuto LIVE,” Steyer said doing well in Iowa is imperative.

With just days to go, recent Iowa Monmouth University polls show former Vice President Joe Biden, Vermont Sen. Bernie SandersIndiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren continuing to jostle for the lead.

DNC MAKES BIG CHANGE TO DEBATE CRITERIA, IN LIKELY BOOST FOR BLOOMBERG

According to the latest Quinnipiac Poll, Biden and Sanders lead the pack nationally, with Biden at 26 percent and Sanders at 21 percent. Steyer is listed as one of the candidates at or below 2 percent.

Steyer, a California billionaire, told host Neil Cavuto that “it’s kind of a jumble at this point.”

“I think if you’re going to be the candidate of the Democratic Party, you’ve got to appeal to a diverse group of people. It’s a very diverse country. We are a very diverse party,” he said.

“And so, you have got to come out of Iowa and do well. As you mentioned, I am doing really well in Nevada and South Carolina,” Steyer added. “I know from looking at these early states that I do appeal to a diverse group of Americans, and that’s going to be really important.”

Steyer said his big question about the election in November is going to be about voter turnout.

He said he believes there are “tens of millions of people” who don’t vote because they think the system is broken, but “in their hearts and minds they are really Democrats.”

“But to me the real question is: Are Americans going to understand how important this election his, how much is at stake, that their vote is crucial?” he asked. “If that happens, I think it’s very good for whoever the Democratic candidate is.”

Steyer founded investment company Farallon Capital Management in 1986 and sold it in 2012.  He has since transformed into a major political organizing player and environmental advocate.

Massachusetts couple chase suspect’s vehicle after Amber Alert about abducted schoolgirl, 11: video

Westlake Legal Group Mass-kidnapping Massachusetts couple chase suspect's vehicle after Amber Alert about abducted schoolgirl, 11: video fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/massachusetts fox-news/us/crime fox-news/topic/missing-persons fox news fnc/us fnc David Aaro article 66ee91f0-eb74-5b4e-a9b6-cb774de3f2d8

A Massachusetts couple traveling with their three children posted video this week showing them chasing down a vehicle that matched an Amber Alert description following the alleged kidnapping of an 11-year-old Springfield schoolgirl.

The girl, Charlotte Moccia, was ultimately found safe nearly six hours after she was reported missing, thanks in part to the family’s efforts, Massachusetts State Police said. The suspect, identified as Miguel Rodriguez, 24, of Springfield, was arrested Wednesday evening.

The couple — Amanda Disley and her husband Benny Correa — noticed a dark blue Honda described as having “distinctive rims” that matched the Amber Alert previously sent out in relation to the kidnapping, according to Boston’s WYCN-LD.

Disley showed the Amber Alert photo of the Honda to Correa, who “noticed the wheels automatically,” the station reported.

“It’s him, it’s him! It’s a blue Honda Civic and they’re doing 100 miles per hour right now!” Disley and Correa are heard shouting in the video during the heart-pounding scene. “He’s blowing through red lights!”

“It’s him, it’s him! It’s a blue Honda Civic and they’re doing 100 miles per hour right now! He’s blowing through red lights!”

WARNING: GRAPHIC LANGUAGE

Disley’s video, posted on Facebook, also includes her written description of what transpired.

“Some of the video sorry for dramaticness but when I saw the person in the back seat being pushed down all we could think about is her and the danger she was in,” Disley writes. “[I] wasn’t even sure if it was the right car just the gut feeling my husband and I had by the rims and the funny movements in the car.”

Around 7:15 p.m., police received several calls reporting the suspect’s vehicle was traveling eastbound on the Massachusetts Turnpike, Boston’s FOX25 reported.

Responding officers pulled the car over and found Moccia in the back seat and Rodriguez behind the wheel. The girl was evaluated on the scene and didn’t appear to be injured.

The girl’s family released a statement Thursday, thanking everyone who helped get the child back safe, according to WYCN-LD.

“In particular, we’d like to thank Amanda Disley and her husband for their vigilance and courage for putting themselves in harm’s way to make sure she wasn’t out of their sight,” the family said, according to the outlet.

During his arraignment Thursday, Rodriguez pleaded not guilty to kidnapping charges, WYCN-LD reported.

Separately, court documents show a relative of Rodriguez had filed a restraining order against him in 2018, alleging he “caused [her] to engage in sexual relations by force, threat or duress.”

The family member added he sexually assaulted her when she was 13, according to the outlet.

Tom Brady said he’s been focusing more on “decompressing” than focusing on his contract and the 2020 season, a week after the New England Patriots were eliminated from the playoffs.

Brady told Fox News contributor Jim Gray on his Westwood One radio show Saturday that he’s not putting a timetable on plans for his future with his contract being voided in about two months.

“The contract things, a week after the season, I would say these things haven’t even started to pick up. It’s really not my concern at this point,” Brady said. “It’s been about decompressing and resting my mind a little bit and resting my body and spending time with the people who have supported me over the last six months.”

Brady reiterated his plans to play in 2020, something he also suggested earlier in the week in an Instagram post.

“I love playing football. I love playing for this organization. I really don’t know what it looks like moving forward, and I’m just taking it day to day,” Brady said in response to Patriots owner Robert Kraft’s comments. “We are a week removed from the end of our season. There is a lot of time to figure these things out. I don’t think any player or team is ready to make any commitments at this point, and I’m sure as the offseason progresses those things will take care of themselves.”

TOM BRADY STILL HAS ‘MORE TO PROVE’ BUT WHETHER IT’S WITH THE PATRIOTS IS UNCLEAR

He added that the speculation around his retirement wasn’t going to make his decision come any quicker.

“I can only say how I feel, and that’s what’s the truth to me and what’s authentic to me,” he said. “And, I have no decision that I have made, and there won’t be for some considerable time, so I know there is speculation; there always is. That’s just part of being in professional sports. That’s part of being a professional athlete.

“When people aren’t talking about this season, they want to talk about next season, and the reality is that next season is quite a ways away. I have some other things that are happening at this time: like I said, spending some time with my family, my loved ones and giving them the time they need. And then, as people begin to plan for next season, like I said, these things will take care of themselves.”

Beer toss at Celtics-Spurs game after Kemba Walker ejection gets fan arrested, report says

A fan was arrested for throwing a beer on the court during an NBA game between the Celtics and San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday night — after Boston’s Kemba Walker was controversially ejected for using back-to-back profanities.

Midway through the third quarter at TD Garden in Boston, Walker collided hard with 260-pound LaMarcus Aldridge during a screen that wasn’t called a foul by the referees. Crew chief Rodney Mott later told a reporter that Aldridge was set, so a foul wasn’t called.

Angry about what many saw as a missed call, Walker reportedly gave some harsh words to referee Evan Scott, who charged him with two technical fouls and ejected the player.

“I thought I was being nice,” said Walker. “I thought the ref missed the call. … The rest is history.”

Boos rained down from the home crowd in the stands and a fan launched a beer that landed in front of the Spurs bench and rolled onto the court, requiring a short delay in the game so crews could clean up the mess.

Celtics spokesman Christian Megliola said the suspect was promptly located and arrested. The fan’s identity wasn’t immediately made available.

Massachusetts professor accused of trying to kill faculty colleague in Christmas Eve attack

A professor at a prestigious Massachusetts college has been charged with trying to kill a female faculty colleague who suffered severe injuries after being attacked with a rock, garden shears and a fireplace poker, prosecutors said.

Rie Hachiyanagi, an art professor at Mount Holyoke College, was charged Friday with armed assault to murder, according to reports.

The victim, a 60-year-old woman, went to the hospital with broken bones to her face and other injuries.

Reports citing a police report suggest Hachiyanagi may have attacked her colleague over unrequited love.

“During the winter recess, there was a serious incident involving two Mount Holyoke faculty members,” Mount Holyoke spokeswoman Christian Feuerstein said, according to MassLive.com. “The incident occurred off-campus and resulted in the hospitalization of one faculty member who is receiving care.”

Feuerstein said Hachiyanagi had been placed on administrative leave and was barred from setting foot on campus.

Police said they responded to the victim’s home in Leverett shortly before 1 a.m. on Christmas Eve and were met by Hachiyangagi, who told them that she called 911 after finding her friend “lying on the floor of the residence barely breathing, semi-conscious and with a head injury,” Fox 6 Springfield and other local media reported.

She said her friend had been attacked by an unknown assailant, the station reported.

The Daily Hampshire Gazette reported Saturday that according to the police report the victim told officers at the hospital that the person who attacked her was Hachiyanagi, who was not a stranger. The report said the woman thought she was going to die at Hachiyanagi’s hands.

According to the paper, the police report also stated that the woman said Hachiyanagi began attacking her after showing up uninvited on Dec. 23 and saying that she wanted to talk about her feelings.

The police report also quoted the victim as telling officers that when she asked Hachiyanagi why she was attacking her, Hachiyanagi responded “that she loved her for many years and she should have known,” according to the paper.

The victim then played along, lying that she had reciprocating feelings to convince Hachiyanagi to stop beating her and call 911, the paper reported.

The police report said that in an interview with police Hachiyanagi said she didn’t remember anything after 6 p.m. Thursday, that multiple concussions in the past had affected her memory.
