New Jersey man allegedly threatened farmers who denied him sex with animals

A New Jersey man was arrested for asking local farmers permission to have sex with their animals — and then threatening the farmers and damaging their cars when refused, a report said.

Richard Decker, 31, began sending the messages to Sussex County farms and horse stables in 2018, asking the animal caregivers if he could have sex with their cows and horses, the New Jersey Herald reported.

When he was rejected by the farmers, Decker allegedly sent threats and placed homemade metal spikes on their driveways to damage their tires, according to the report.

In one case, he threatened to beat a farmer’s wife with a wooden stick when denied permission.

Several of the property owners reported their tires had been damaged by the spikes.

Decker was arrested in Vernon Township on Oct. 3 after police searched his home.

Rudy Giuliani blasts Cory Booker after NJ Democrat blasts him for ‘despicable’ behavior: ‘Newark is doing fabulous’

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani blasted U.S. Sen. Cory Booker on Tuesday night, after the New Jersey Democrat attacked him as “despicable” for his work as President Trump’s personal attorney.

“The guy was a terrible mayor,” Giuliani said, noting Booker was formerly mayor of Newark, the crime- and poverty-ridden largest city in the Garden State.

“I was the mayor of a city and I turned it around,” Giuliani said. “He was a mayor of a city and they had more crime when he left than when he came in.”

GRAHAM OFFERS GIULIANI CHANCE TO TESTIFY BEFORE SENATE ABOUT BIDEN-UKRAINE ALLEGATIONS

During the same appearance on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle,” Giuliani also dismissed Booker’s apparent eagerness to question him at any potential Senate hearing regarding Trump administration actions.

In a recent CNN interview, Booker told “AC360” host Anderson Cooper he would “savor the opportunity” to interrogate Giuliani.

“I would — and especially if it’s done publicly,” he said.

More from Media

“I know Rudy Giuliani is from New York — very close to Broadway — he loves the theatrics. His behavior has been despicable, and the lies and half-truths and the deception that he’s been doing at the direction of this president and beyond is unbecoming.”

On “The Ingraham Angle,” Giuliani scoffed at the idea he should be anxious to have Booker question him.

“Gee, I don’t know if I can handle it — he’s a really tough guy — he really scares me,” Giuliani said sarcastically. “Newark is doing fabulous.”

Earlier in the interview, Giuliani also responded to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham considering inviting him to testify before that committee to detail his allegations about former Vice President Joe Biden and his dealings with Ukraine.

Giuliani said he has to “weigh” the decision with Trump and other people involved.

“It’s not a unitary decision,” he said.

A New Jersey man has been sentenced to eight years in prison for stabbing to death a retired Catholic school teacher during a dispute over feeding pigeons at a local park.

Charles Lowy, 69, stabbed 77-year-old Anthony Bello in April 2018, NJ.com reported. Lowy was convicted of reckless manslaughter this past July.

CALIFORNIA, NEW JERSEY WELL REPRESENTED ON LIST OF ‘MISERABLE’ US CITIES

Lowy’s defense attorney reportedly said it was the 69-year-old’s routine of feeding the birds by scattering food in a circle around him that set off the argument between the two men in Pershing Field Park in Jersey City.

Lowy had left the scene by the time police found Bello, who had been walking through the park on his way to church, bleeding and unresponsive, the paper reported. The retired school teacher had a stab wound in his chest. He later died at a hospital.

The defense argued that Bello was the aggressor and Lowy had stabbed him in self-defense, the paper reported.

Under the state’s No Early Release Act, Lowy won’t be eligible for parole until he’s served 85 percent of his sentence, according to the paper. He would have faced life in prison if convicted of murder.

New Jersey man allegedly beaten over MAGA hat claims NYC art pop-up got his attackers drunk

A New Jersey man sued an art pop-up event organizer, the gallery and the building owner Friday in Manhattan Supreme Court, alleging they’re responsible for getting his attackers drunk — even though he said one was underage — before they brutally injured him in July for wearing a pro-Trump “Make America Great Again” hat, according to a report.

Jahangir Turan, 42, of Hoboken, said the “dangerous, unruly and belligerent group” got drunk at an “ABC Angels Club pop-up” event on Canal Street in downtown New York City before later attacking him, the New York Post reported Sunday.

The gallery, Wallplay, building owners United American Land and one of the event organizers, photographer Anna Bloda, were named in the lawsuit. The attackers have not been identified.

MAN IN ‘MAGA’ HAT ASSAULTED IN CALIFORNIA RESTAURANT BATHROOM; SUSPECT ARRESTED, POLICE SAY

Turan said in the lawsuit the three parties were “directly responsible” for “gross negligence” because alcohol was served at the event “without an appropriate license.” At least one of his attackers was under 21, Turan alleged.

One attacker knocked Turan’s MAGA hat off his head before two other people smashed his “head and face into the metal scaffolding,” the lawsuit claimed.

Turan suffered a fractured eye socket and sought damages for “substantial injuries, pain, suffering and emotional distress.”

Bloda told the Post she felt badly, “but it’s nothing to do with me.”

“I’m broke. I’m an artist hardly surviving in New York,” she told the newspaper. “I don’t know what happened — I don’t know these people. They were a bunch of skater kids who had nothing to do with me, and they all refused to say who was responsible because they were loyal to each other.”

She also said everybody who attended the event was at least 21.

“I respect everybody’s political opinions and rights to believe what they want. It’s a very bad thing that happened but it’s got nothing to do with me,” she added.

None of the parties being sued returned Fox News’ requests for comment. An email to United American Land was returned as undeliverable.

Want to be miserable? Just three states offer an array of places you may like.

Business Insider recently released its list of the 50 most miserable cities in America – with cities in California (10), New Jersey (9), and Florida (6), accounting for half the list.

In compiling its rankings, Business Insider said it used U.S. Census information to analyze 1,000 U.S. cities on metrics such as crime, drug addiction, population changes, job opportunities, commute times, household incomes, abandoned homes and effects from problems such as natural disasters.

LA CITY OFFICIALS PRESSURING NEWSOM TO DECLARE STATE OF EMERGENCY AMID HOMELESS CRISIS

It decided that Gary, Ind., just outside Chicago, was the nation’s most miserable city, followed by Port Arthur, Texas, and Detroit.

What the most miserable cities had in common, according to the outlet, were “few opportunities, devastation from natural disasters, high crime and addiction rates, and often many abandoned houses.”

The data appear to support President Trump’s recent criticisms of California. Last month, the president charged that urban areas in the Golden State continue to “destroy themselves” by failing to address serious issues such as homelessness.

The 10 California cities and their rankings were: Bell Gardens (14); Compton (41); El Monte (22); Hemet (44); Huntington Park (10); Lancaster (50); Lynwood (21); Montebello (40); Palmdale; and San Bernardino (42).

The nine New Jersey cities and their rankings were: Camden (8); Newark (5); New Brunswick (11); Passaic (4); Paterson (19); Plainfield 930); Trenton (17); Union City (15); and West New York (29).

Atlantic City mayor admits to stealing $87,000 from youth basketball team

The mayor of Atlantic City, New Jersey admitted in federal court on Thursday that he stole $87,000 from a youth basketball team he founded.

The admission puts the mayor on a long line of corrupt leadership in the city, which has been riddled with chronic budget problems.

Frank Gillam Jr. told the judge he stole funds raised from donors in Atlantic City and Philadelphia for the Atlantic City Starz for personal expenses between 2013 and 2018. He was elected mayor in 2017 after serving as a City Councilman.

He was released after posting a $100,000 bond with the court, but New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy and other elected officials quickly called for him to resign. Plans were already being made for the City Council president to assume Gillam’s position.

Gillam, 49, faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted in his trial, which is set for Jan. 7. Half of the money he stole was recovered from his home when FBI agents raided it in December, and he’s agreed to pay restitution for the fraud.

According to prosecutors, Gillam used the money for personal expenses such as luxury clothing, expensive meals and trips. He had solicited the donations using his political office under the false pretense they were for the youth basketball team or for school supplies for underprivileged children.

“When a scheme depletes (a) charity for children, it’s unconscionable,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge Gregory Ehrie. “But when the fraud is perpetrated by someone the public trusts, it damages the community’s confidence in their public servants. This defendant betrayed the trust of his community and of people who wanted to improve the lives of children.”

WARREN, GABBARD KNOCK HARRIS’ BID TO BAN TRUMP FROM TWITTER

Gillam’s lawyer, Harry Rimm, issued a defense that Gillam only admitted misusing private funds, not public money, which he argued made the mayor better than many of his predecessors. The city was on the brink of bankruptcy when Gillam took office in 2017 as its casino industry struggled.

The Atlantic City mayoral office has a long history of rampant corruption, lending ground for the 1920s-era hit HBO series “Boardwalk Empire.”

As of 2007, four of the city’s last eight mayors had been arrested on corruption charges and one-third of the nine-member City Council was either in prison or under house arrest.

Robert Levey, mayor of the city from 2006-2007, admitted in court to falsifying his military record to receive $25,000 worth of benefits. In 1991, former mayor James Usry admitted to a campaign finance violation of accepting $6,000 in exchange for supporting an ordinance that would benefit the company that offered the money.

New Jersey reports first vaping-linked death, US toll rises to 14

New Jersey officials on Tuesday confirmed the state’s first vaping-related death, which involved an adult woman who died in August, marking at least the 14th such death in the U.S. since the outbreak began.

The woman, whose name and age were not revealed, lived in northern New Jersey, according to the health department’s press release.

MOM LEFT WITH GAPING HOLE IN FOOT AFTER SUSPECTED WART REVEALED TO BE CANCER

There have been 14 confirmed and probable cases of serious lung injury in the state, in addition to 32 reports of severe lung illnesses currently under investigation by state officials. All cases involved residents between ages 15 and 51, with the majority being male patients.

“The New Jersey Department of Health is saddened to announce a death associated with this outbreak,” said Judith Perischilli, Department of Health acting commissioner, on Tuesday. “This death underscores the potential dangers associated with vaping.”

NEBRASKA SEES 1ST VAPING-LINKED DEATH

Nebraska also reported its first death linked to vaping this week. Officials there announced Monday that a resident over the age of 65 in the Douglas County area died in May. His family identified him as 68-year-old John Steffen, who began using e-cigarettes five years ago as a way to quit smoking.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) late last week described a possible link between the current outbreak of vaping-related lung injuries and the use of THC-containing vaping products.

The CDC’s findings indicated that out of 514 patients with suspected vaping-related illnesses, 77 reported that they had been using products containing THC, or using both nicotine- and THC-containing products.

But the exact cause of the current outbreak of vaping-related illnesses remains unknown. The CDC and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), along with state and local health agencies, are still investigating the 805 vaping-related lung illness cases reported across 46 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

A New Jersey elementary school teacher has lost his job for allegedly snorting morphine in front of his students, according to a Tuesday report.

Palladino was an elementary school teacher at Eagleswood Elementary in Eagleswood Township, N.J.

Prosecutors allege Palladino used a ballpoint pen to snort morphine on his classroom desk in front of his students and a faculty member. The pen, which was found with drug residue, had been kept in a desk drawer, prosecutors say.

Eagleswood Township Elementary has students from pre-kindergarten through sixth grade. Palladino held certificates of eligibility to teach grades K-8 with advanced standing, Patch reported.
