Indianapolis mom, infant twins die in crash with semi-truck, driver arrested

The driver of a semi-truck involved in a crash that claimed the lives of a mother and her 18-month-old twins in Indianapolis was arrested on Sunday night and faces three preliminary counts of reckless homicide, a report said.

Bruce Pollard, 57, was arrested after investigators said they believe the truck’s speed could have been a factor, WISHTV.com reported. The report said that Pollard was driving the truck at around noon when he plowed into traffic that was stopped.

The mother and her twins were reportedly in the first car that was hit by the truck, the report said. It burst into flames, the report said. Several other cars were damaged. The mother and twins died at the scene.

Indiana boy, 2, ran over by lawn mower, airlifted to hospital for ‘serious injuries,’ police say

A toddler in Indiana sustained serious injuries on Saturday after his grandfather backed over him with a lawn mower, according to officials.

The Jennings County Sheriff’s Office said on Facebook the incident happened around 1 p.m. on the 3600 block of Grayford Road in Commiskey, located about 70 miles south of Indianapolis.

“Deputies are still investigating and thus far calling it a terrible accident,” police said. “Our thoughts are with the family during this difficult time.”

While William was mowing the lawn at a property on Grayford Road, the 2-year-old boy ran towards his grandfather, chased by his grandmother, according to police.

The boy then fell as the grandfather was backing up, and went under the lawn mower while it was still running, the couple told the police.

Family in shock after toddler daughter of Indiana cop dies in fall from grandfather’s hands on cruise ship, reports say

An Indiana family is in shock after a 1-year-old girl — daughter of a South Bend Police Department officer — slipped from her grandfather’s hands and fell to her death from the 11th story of a cruise ship docked in Puerto Rico, police said Monday.

“They’re in shock,” Police Sgt. Nelson Sotelo told The Associated Press, noting that the family of the child will remain in the U.S. territory until the investigation is complete.

He said officers have not yet been able to interview any relatives.

The South Bend Police Department said in a statement, as USA Today reported, that the girl was the daughter of Officer Alan Wiegand: “The South Bend Police Department offers its sincerest condolences to Officer Alan Wiegand and his family during this difficult time following the tragic loss of their child while in Puerto Rico. The department asks the community to pray for the entire Wiegand family as they grieve and to respect their privacy.”

Authorities said the girl was traveling with her parents, two siblings and two sets of grandparents aboard the Freedom of the Seas, which docked in Puerto Rico on Sunday after a week-long trip through the Caribbean.

The death occurred Sunday afternoon at the Panamerican dock in the capital of San Juan.

Puerto Rico Ports Authority spokesman José Carmona told the AP that the family was gathered in or near a dining hall on the 11th floor and that the grandfather sat the toddler on the edge of a window and apparently lost his grip. He said officials are investigating whether the window was already opened or if someone had opened it.

Sotelo said the toddler’s maternal grandfather, Salvatore Anello of Valparaiso, Indiana, is under investigation. He said the rest of the family is from Granger, Indiana.

Royal Caribbean Cruises called it a tragic incident and said it was helping the family. A spokeswoman said the ship departed Puerto Rico on Monday for St. Maarten on a new itinerary and declined further comment.

Eva Kor, Holocaust survivor, dies peacefully at age 85

Eva Kor, a Holocaust survivor who founded the CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Educational Center in Indiana, died peacefully on Thursday during her annual trip to Poland. She was 85.

Kor, a Jewish native of Romania, was sent to the infamous Auschwitz concentration camp in 1944, where most of her family was killed.

Kor and her twin sister, Miriam Mozes Zeiger, survived but were subjected to inhumane medical experiments by Nazi doctor Josef Mengele before they were rescued in 1945.

LIBERAL SITE RIPS HOLOCAUST MUSEUM FOR ITS ‘DREADFUL’ INTERVENTION IN ‘CONCENTRATION CAMPS’ DEBATE

Zeiger died in June 1993.

A longtime resident of Terre Haute, Indiana, Kor preached forgiveness, even to the Nazis who tortured her and her sister.

She spent the past 40 years sharing her story with students, teachers, doctors, senators, historians and civic groups both nationally and internationally.

In 1995, Kor opened the CANDLES museum to prevent prejudice and hatred through education about the Holocaust. In 2003, the museum was destroyed by an arsonist. Kor vowed to rebuild and, with the public’s help, reopened the museum in 2005.

“Eva Kor has touched hundreds of thousands of people over her 85 years through her message of overcoming tragedy, finding forgiveness, and healing,” the CANDLES museum said in a statement. “We hope Eva’s story continues to change the lives of those who hear it for many years to come.”

Museum officials said the center will be closed until Tuesday in honor of Kor’s memory.

In 2017, Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb awarded Kor the Sachem Award, the state’s highest honor.

Holcomb tweeted Thursday that “the world just lost a giant.”

“Everywhere she went, Eva brought light into darkness & provided comfort to those in pain, unlike anyone we’ve ever met. From her against all odds survival as a young girl in Auschwitz to her peace-spreading message based from home in Terre Haute, Indiana, her relentless and optimistic example inspired the world. Her angelic spirit will live on in the countless souls she saved from ongoing confusion and torment,” Holcomb tweeted.

A public memorial service will be planned.

South Bend officer: Pete Buttigieg must ‘recuse himself’ from police shooting probe, is using it to ‘further political campaign’

Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg is using an Indiana police-involved shooting probe to further his White House ambitions, according to the local police union president.

Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, should remove himself from the investigation and stop insinuating there is a race problem within the police department, Harvey Mills claimed Tuesday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“This incident has nothing to do with race,” Mills said. “This incident is about an officer that was forced to defend himself against a dangerous felon who used an eight-inch hunting knife to attack him. That’s all this incident is. It has nothing to do with skin color.

“He has used this incident to further his political campaign and he cannot be unbiased about this… I would tell him that he needs to recuse himself from this investigation.”

SOUTH BEND POLICE UNION SLAMS BUTTIGIEG OVER RESPONSE TO POLICE SHOOTING OF BLACK MAN

In June, South Bend Sgt. Ryan O’Neil, a 19-year department veteran, fatally shot 54-year-old Eric Logan. O’Neil was responding to reports of someone breaking into cars downtown when he encountered Logan, who authorities say was allegedly armed with a knife. The officer’s body camera was switched off at the time.

In an email to supporters, Buttigieg wrote the shooting highlighted, “all police work and all of American life takes place in the shadow of racism, which hurts everyone and everything it touches.”

“Historic racism, present-day racism, and generational racism – they all secrete a kind of poison into the bloodstream of this country,” he wrote.

Late last month, the mayor was heckled by local residents at an event.

“You’ve gotta go back to South Carolina like you were yesterday — talk about ‘all lives matter’ in South Carolina,” one angry attendee yelled at the 37-year-old Democrat.

In his Fox News interview, Mills told host Tucker Carlson the entire situation is hurtful to law enforcement.

“It’s very demoralizing,” the local FOP president said. “He used the term ‘systemic racism’ apparently. Maybe he doesn’t understand the definition of systemic. We do. That means all. He’s basically called all police officers racist. That is blatantly untrue.

“I’ve served my whole life. First in the Navy and now as a police officer. It really comes down to a want to serve the community that you live in.”

US judge blocks Indiana 2nd-trimester abortion procedure ban

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6041943577001_6041941409001-vs US judge blocks Indiana 2nd-trimester abortion procedure ban fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/indiana fox-news/politics/judiciary/abortion fnc/us fnc Associated Press article 561d559c-04e4-54fd-bbbe-dc860744e618

A federal judge blocked an Indiana law that would ban a second-trimester abortion procedure on Friday, just days before the law was set to come into force.

The order putting the Indiana law on hold was released hours after the U.S. Supreme Court declined to revive a similar law in Alabama that sought to ban dilation and evacuation abortions.

The law passed by Indiana’s Republican-dominated Legislature this spring calls the procedure “dismemberment abortion.” It was set to become effective on July 1.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana sued on behalf of two doctors who perform dilation and evacuation abortions. Under the law, a doctor who performs the procedure could face a felony charge, punishable by up to six years in prison.

Indiana’s attorneys maintained the state had a valid role in limiting types of abortion procedures, citing a 2007 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that upheld a federal law banning the method.

ACLU attorneys argued that the ban would put a “substantial and unwarranted burden on women’s ability to obtain second-trimester, pre-viability abortions.”

In granting the preliminary injunction that blocked the law, U.S. District Judge Sarah Evans Barker wrote that it “prohibits physicians from utilizing the most common, safest, often most cost effective, and best understood method of second trimester abortion, requiring them instead to resort to alternatives that are medically riskier, more costly, less reliable, and in some instances simply unavailable, while accomplishing little more than expressing hostility towards the constitutionally fundamental right of women to control their own reproductive lives.”

Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill said in a statement he expected to appeal the ruling.

“I continue to believe that Indiana has a compelling interest in protecting the value and dignity of fetal life by banning a particularly brutal and inhumane procedure,” Hill said.

The U.S. Supreme Court in May rejected Indiana’s appeal of a lower court ruling that blocked the state’s ban on abortion based on gender, race or disability. The court, however, upheld a portion of the 2016 law signed by then-Gov. Mike Pence requiring burial or cremation of fetal remains after an abortion.

Four other anti-abortion laws adopted in Indiana since 2013 have been blocked by federal courts, according to the ACLU.

Chris Charbonneau, the CEO at Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, said the latest Indiana law wrongly waded into the details of medical decisions that should be left to doctors.

“I think the Legislature has not, until recently, been serious about passing something that will be upheld,” Charbonneau said. “I think they’re passing these things as red meat to the right-wing base to make it look like they are actually doing something.”

The decision from Barker, who was nominated as a judge by President Ronald Reagan, comes just weeks after she allowed an abortion clinic to open in South Bend. The Indiana State Department of Health had denied the operator a clinic license, saying it had not provided requested safety documentation.

During a hearing this month, Barker questioned why the state would force women seeking a second-trimester abortion to undergo “highly risky” alternative procedures, such as prematurely inducing labor or injecting fatal drugs into the fetus.

Federal courts have blocked similar laws in several states, including Kentuckyand Ohio this spring, but Indiana abortion opponents were hopeful an increasingly conservative U.S. Supreme Court could eventually uphold such bans.

The Indiana measure signed by Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb would make it illegal for doctors to use medical instruments such as clamps, forceps and scissors to remove a fetus from the womb except to save the pregnant woman’s life or prevent serious health risk.

Indiana Solicitor General Thomas Fisher said legislators wanted the ban “because they think the procedure is unethical.”

The anti-abortion group Indiana Right to Life urged an appeal of Barker’s ruling.

“It’s disgusting that the abortion industry can simply overturn a law they dislike by filing a lawsuit,” said Mike Fichter, the group’s president and CEO. “Dismemberment abortions are painful and barbaric. No baby deserves this horrific death sentence.”

Indiana lawmakers didn’t go as far as those in Louisiana, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi and Ohio, where bills were enacted barring abortion once there’s a detectable fetal heartbeat, as early as the sixth week of pregnancy. Missouri’s governor signed a bill approving an eight-week ban on abortion, with exceptions only for medical emergencies. Alabama outlawed virtually all abortions, even in cases of rape or incest. Those bans haven’t taken effect, and all are expected to face legal challenges.

The dilation and evacuation procedure accounted for 27, or 0.35 percent, of the 7,778 abortions performed in Indiana during 2017, according to an Indiana State Department of Health report.

Wrestling fans urged to get tested for HIV, hepatitis after attending ‘panes of glass match’

Fans who attended a pro-wrestling tournament in Indiana last weekend are being encouraged to get tested for HIV and hepatitis C after the health department discovered events may have exposed people to blood or bodily fluids. The event, hosted in New Albany by Pro Wrestling Trainwreck, was advertised as “Live Extreme Wrestling” that would feature “fans bring the weapons match, a thumbtack match, and a panes of glass match.”

According to the organization’s Facebook page, one of the wrestlers was sent to the emergency room following one of the events, which an outlet identified as a botched attempt at performing the “power bomb.” WDRB.com claims that the “wrestler was picked up and slammed into a stack that included a door, a pane of glass and several fluorescent bulbs.”

The Floyd County Health Department said the wrestler needed 42 stitches for his wounds.

“It could be serious, but right now, we have no reason to believe that there’s any disease exposure,” Charlotte Bass, health department administrator, told WDRB.com. “That’s why we want to test people that came into contact with the body fluids.”

Pro Wrestling Trainwreck organizers have pushed back against the claims, calling it “sensationalized in an attempt to scare anyone that reads it.”

“Thank you to everyone for your continued support and if you no longer support us..we don’t need you anyway,” a Friday Facebook post read.

A notice posted on the health department’s website Thursday said fans who were exposed to blood or bodily fluids are “highly encouraged” to contact them for testing.

Indiana HS cuts ties with gay teacher to stay in archdiocese: report

A high school in northern Indianapolis said Sunday that it will cut ties with a gay teacher in order to stay in the city’s archdiocese, a decision made about a week after another school in the area declined to terminate a gay teacher and split from the archdiocese.

In a letter addressed to the “Cathedral family,” a board member at Cathedral High School announced its decision to end the employment of a teacher in a same-sex marriage, The Indianapolis Star reported.  School administrators said it was an “agonizing decision” but said it was forced to part ties or it would have had to forfeit its Catholic identity.

The report said Cathedral relies heavily on the archdiocese, unlike Brebeuf Jesuit Prep, that refused to terminate the teacher. The archdiocese announced last week that to “effectively bear witness to Christ, whether they teach religion or not, all ministers in their professional and private lives must convey and be supportive of Catholic Church teaching.”
