    A Detroit mural artist has been accused of hiding alleged Oxford High School shooter Ethan Crumbley's alleged fugitive parents at  studio. Andrzej Sikora has admitted giving Jennifer and James Crumbley shelter from 'death threats' in the wake of the massacre allegedly carried out by their son Ethan in Oxford, Michigan, last Thursday.  But he says he had no idea the pair had stayed at his Detroit studio overnight, and only discovered the Crumbleys stay after their arrest at 1:30am Saturday.  Jennifer, a realtor, has a longstanding professional connection with Sikora, who has completed work on at least one building at her behest.  Sikora's attorney, Clarence Dass, told DailyMail.com that the Polish-born painter hadn't knowingly shielded the Crumbleys from the law. Dass said the couple told his client on Friday that they were 'just staying for a few hours to avoid death threats.' Andrzej Sikora (pictured) is friends and business associates with the Jennifer and James Crumbley, the parents of alleged school shooter Ethan Crumbley, according to his lawyer Clarence Dass. The pair were found at the artist's studio on...
    CNN’s Jake Tapper lit up the entertainment industry and other corporate behemoths appeasing China rather than calling out the country’s authoritarian conduct on the world stage. In his closing Sunday monologue on State of the Union, Tapper complimented the Women’s Tennis Association for terminating the events they had scheduled in China over concerns about the safety of tennis star. Peng Shuai. Peng accused China’s former Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli of sexually assaulting her, and many are concerned she is unable to speak freely as Chinese authorities are working to censor her claims. Tapper emphasized that the WTA’s attempt to protest China’s brutality is far more strident than what the International Olympic Committee has done as they prepare to host the 2022 Winter Games in Beijing. While the IOC has touted that they’ve spoken to Shuai, Tapper noted that they haven’t publicly denounced her plight, and he accused them of “behaving like a mob lawyer” and running cover for China’s abuses. “Yes, the Olympics are supposed to be free and without politics,” Tapper said. “But this is not about politics.

    Oakland County, Michigan prosecutor Karen McDonald revealed a teacher was so alarmed by a note she saw on Ethan Crumbley's desk the morning of the shooting she took a photo of it with her cell phone and alerted school administrators. Hours later eleven students would be shot. Four of them died. That note, McDonald revealed, "contained the following: a drawing of a semi-automatic handgun pointing at the words, 'the thoughts won't stop help me.' In another section of the note was a drawing of a bullet with the following words above that bullet: 'blood everywhere.' Between the drawing of the gun and the bullet is a drawing of a person who appears to have been shot twice and bleeding. Below that figure is a drawing of a laughing emoji. Further down the drawing are the words, 'my life is useless,' and to the right of that are the words, 'The world is dead.'" Crumbley, 15, is the accused Oakland High School mass shooter who is now facing murder and terrorism charges and is being charged as an adult. On Friday...
    The bizarre and unsettling YouTube channel of the 'homeless drifter' who allegedly stabbed a 14-year-old boy to death in Palm Beach Gardens last month has come to light, and shows the suspect's paranoia and severe mental health problems. Semmie Williams, 39, is accused of fatally stabbing Ryan Rogers when the two crossed paths on November 15. Around 7:30 pm that evening, surveillance video captured footage of a man believed to be Williams walking towards the I-95 overpass on Central Boulevard, where Ryan's body was later found. On Thursday morning, police announced charges against Williams after they revealed law enforcement in Miami took him into custody in connection to Ryan’s death.  On Williams' YouTube channel, which bears his name and image, he raves about being stalked, abused and harassed by members of the public as well as police, while oftentimes accusing passerbys in his clips of being racists, cult members or undercover police, according to Fox News.

    Two members of the security team for Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore are under investigation after they arrested a man wrongly accused of robbing a high-ranking LAPD commander's wife of her phone in Marseille, France. The extraordinary case of 'not your jurisdiction' came on November 17, during a week-long overseas trip in which members of LAPD top brass met with their French counterparts to discuss security preparations for the upcoming Olympic Games in Paris (2024) and LA (2028).  Several of the commanders' wives accompanied them on the trip, including that of Assistant Chief Robert Marino, who wrongly accused a man of stealing her phone after they bumped into each other on the streets of the Mediterranean port city.  The security guards arrested the unsuspecting man despite being in a foreign country with no evidence to suggest he had committed the crime.  Chief Moore has issued an apology 'for the unfortunate incident' to both French and US officials in Marseille and has ordered an internal investigation into the circumstances of the mishap.  The two officers who carried out the arrest have...

    Actor Jussie Smollett at the Leighton Criminal Courthouse for jury selection at his trial in Chicago. (AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast) Jury selection began Monday in the criminal trial of Jussie Smollett , a black actor who claimed he was the victim of a racist and homophobic assault in Chicago only to have authorities allege he fabricated the event. Smollett claimed that in late January 2019, two men wearing ski masks assaulted him while he was walking home from a Subway restaurant. The men started yelling racist, anti-gay, pro-Donald Trump comments at him before turning violent, he claimed. Smollett said the men beat him and tied a noose around his neck. Smollett's manager called the police, and officers rushed to his apartment to find Smollett with the rope still tied around his neck. "I just wanted y'all to see it," he told them.

    You star Victoria Pedretti has reportedly dropped out of Alice's Sebold's new movie, news that has come after the man the author accused of rape in 1981 was exonerated earlier this week. The Netflix star, 26, who is best known for playing Love Quinn in You, was set to star in a movie adaptation of Sebold's memoir by the same name, Lucky, which details her 1981 rape story at Syracuse University when she was a freshman. It has also been revealed that the movie was dropped after losing all its financing months ago, a source close to production told Variety, which reported that Pedretti is 'no longer involved' with the project.  The news comes just days after the man Sebold accused of rape, Anthony Broadwater, 61, was exonerated.  Victoria Pedretti, 26, is 'no longer involved' in the film adaptation of Alice Sebold's memoir Lucky, which details her 1981 rape story at Syracuse University  Pedretti  is best known for her role as Love Quinn (right) in the Netflix hit You Revelations that led to Broadwater's exoneration came after Executive Producer  Timothy...
    MTV The Challenge: Spies Lies and Allies Two cast members from “The Challenge” who have never appeared on a season together didn’t let that stop them as they clashed on social media this week. One of the last remaining rookies from “Spies, Lies and Allies,” Emanuel Neagu, called out Jemmye Carroll, who appeared on the first season of “All Stars” earlier this year and the “Real World” alum didn’t hesitate to clap back. The drama between the two started after Fessy Shafaat tweeted an idea he had for future seasons of “The Challenge,” suggesting, “What if @ChallengeMTV traveled around the United States for the next season and did live daily challenges and eliminations in stadiums and arenas so people could watch live and cheer on. could still record and throw the episodes put together on paramount plus or whatever too.” Jemmye replied to Fessy’s tweet, “Good luck filling those stadiums you speak of… *Rihanna voice*.” A screenshot of the exchange was shared to a “Challenge” gossip account and led to Emanuel calling out Jemmye.

    Private investigator Dan Myers says he knows the identity of the man who raped Lovely Bones author Alice Sebold The private investigator who helped prove Anthony Broadwater's innocence in the 1981 rape of author Alice Sebold says he's learned the name of a man who may be the real rapist – and is calling for the criminal case to now be reopened. In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, investigator Dan Myers said a detective who was involved in the original investigation gave him the name of a suspect, who was locked up for committing another sex crime around the time of Sebold's rape.  That man now lives in Syracuse and is listed on New York's sex offender registry, Myers has discovered. 'I know he does still exist,' Myers said. 'He definitely did time in prison, and he's now out.' Broadwater, 61, was convicted of raping Sebold in 1982. He spent 16 years in prison and was released in 1998.  On Monday, his conviction was overturned after a producer working on a film adaptation of Lucky, Sebold's memoir about the rape,...
    The sheriff of Loudoun County blasted the county superintendent for allowing a student accused of a highly publicized sexual assault at a local high school to transfer schools despite knowing about the assault the day it occurred. Loudoun Sheriff Mike Chapman accused superintendent Scott Ziegler in a letter last month of knowing about the "alleged sexual offense the day it occurred” but nevertheless allowing the student accused of the assault to transfer to another school “despite knowing the serious nature of the offense.” Chapman’s Nov. 10 letter was the latest in a war of words between Ziegler and Chapman. The superintendent, in a Nov. 5 letter , had accused the sheriff’s office of relaying “inaccurate information” about the assault to the Loudoun board of supervisors during their Nov. 3 meeting. The sheriff’s office had told the board that Loudoun public schools had received timely notice about sexual assault charges filed against the student. The sheriff's letter was a response to Ziegler's. LOUDOUN SCHOOL BOARD SETTLES LAWSUIT WITH TEACHER WHO REFUSED TO USE TRANSGENDER STUDENT PRONOUNS ...
    A group of four black men known as the 'Groveland Four' were posthumously exonerated in a Florida courtroom after they were wrongly accused of raping a 17-year-old girl at gunpoint in 1949.  The four men -  Charles Greenlee, Walter Irvin, Samuel Shepherd, and Ernest Thomas - who ranged in age from 16 to 26 - had been accused by Norma Padgett in 1949 and sparked a manhunt throughout the small town of Groveland, a town 30 miles west of Orlando. Black residents suffered racist violence, with a mob hunting down Thomas and killing him by shooting him 400 times. Shepherd was shot dead by cops two years later while being driven to the rape trial.   But the now 72-year-old case has finally been settled with all four men after Administrative Judge Heidi Davis dismissed the indictments of Thomas and Shepherd, both of whom were shot dead in the wake of the allegations, and setting aside the convictions of Greenlee and Irvin.  The members of the Groveland Four were previously pardoned by the Florida Clemency Board, which was led by Governor...
    Ahmaud Arbery was 25 years old when, according to prosecutors, he was chased down and murdered by a trio of white men in Georgia last year. On Monday, the trial of the three white men accused of murdering Ahmaud Arbery, a young Black man, comes to its finish as prosecutors are slated to make their closing arguments before jurors commence deliberations on a verdict.   Travis and Gregory McMichael, who are father and son, and their neighbor William “Roddie” Bryan Jr., were charged last May for the February murder and aggravated assault of the 25-year-old. Arbery was jogging in the Satilla Shores neighborhood just outside of Brunswick, Georgia when the McMichaels and Bryan Jr., according to prosecutors, chased Arbery down. It was then, they say, that the trio cornered Arbery with their trucks and eventually shot him to death. Last week from the courthouse in Glynn County, Travis McMichael admitted he shot Arbery, chalking it up to self-defense. A day later when under cross examination by prosecutors, he admitted he did not feel threatened by Arbery before shooting him. Defense attorneys have...

Another protester told the same outlet the Rittenhouse verdict represents "a green light for more white supremacy vigilante terror."Can the DOJ do anything?Despite demands for DOJ intervention into the decision by 12 of Rittenhouse's peers to conclude he acted in self-defense, thereby making him not guilty of committing murder, it remains unclear what the Justice Department could do, if anything at all. Rittenhouse was never charged with a federal crime, nor did the murder accusations against Rittenhouse invoke violations of federal law.

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California accused Democrats of operating on a double-standard in an impassioned speech on the House floor Wednesday. Lawmakers in the lower chamber voted to censure GOP Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona over a cartoon video he tweeted depicting himself killing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with a sword and then going to attack President Joe Biden.  Gosar was stripped of his committee assignments in a 223-207 vote - and McCarthy strongly hinted that a handful of Democrats will see the same fate.  In his speech ahead of the vote this afternoon McCarthy listed off five outspoken Democrats - including Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Reps. Maxine Waters and Adam Schiff of California - whose committee assignments could be on the chopping block if his party takes back the House in 2022. McCarthy said of Democrats' tenure in the majority, 'What they have started cannot easily be undone. Their actions today and the past have forever changed the way the House operates.' 'It means that the minority rights that have served this body as well are the...

    Travis McMichael, the Georgia man accused of murdering Ahmaud Arbery last February, testified on his own behalf on Wednesday. “I want to give my side of the story, explain what happened in the way I see it,” McMichael said on the stand. McMichael, his father, Gregory, and William “Roddie” Bryan face several charges after allegedly chasing and ultimately killing Arbery, who was known to jog in Satilla Shores, a neighborhood in Brunswick, Georgia, on the afternoon of Feb. 23, 2020.

    CAMBRIDGE, Md. (AP) — A Maryland mayor has been arrested and charged with distributing revenge porn online, prosecutors announced Monday. Andrew Bradshaw, the 32-year-old mayor of Cambridge, on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, is accused of posting nude photos of a woman he was no longer in a romantic relationship with. Bradshaw posted the photos using multiple Reddit accounts he created using variations of the woman’s name and birthdate, according to a news release from the Office of the State Prosecutor. The photos were captioned with racial slurs and sexually explicit language and were posted in April and May, authorities said. Two that were posted on Easter included vulgar jokes about “he is risen.” Bradshaw was arrested Monday and charged with 50 counts of distributing revenge porn and released on his own recognizance, according to online court records. He could not be reached for comment, and online court documents don’t list an attorney. The woman contacted authorities in May after learning that the photos were posted on Reddit. She told authorities that she had sent the photos only to Bradshaw while...
    A former Boston College student who allegedly encouraged her boyfriend to kill himself in text messages before he died by suicide on his graduation day is set to have her case heard by the Massachusetts Supreme Court, where justices will rule whether her involuntary manslaughter charges is 'legally tenable.' Inyoung You, 23, was indicted by a Suffolk County grand jury two years ago in connection to her boyfriend Alexander Urtula's suicide, after he jumped from the roof of the Renaissance Parking Garage in Roxbury as You pulled up in an Uber.  Earlier this year, the judge overseeing the case dismissed one argument by the prosecution that You failed to call 911 when she knew Urtula was about to take his life.  The decision prompted defense lawyers in October to request that the Supreme Court take up the case, which will commence oral arguments on February 2, according to the Boston Globe. You is being charged on the grounds that she contributed to Urtula's death by consistently sending him text messages urging him to kill himself before he eventually did.  You's defense...
    Fox News’ Dan Bongino’s interview with a Black Lives Matter activist descended into chaos as they both wound up yelling at each other before Bongino’s guest walked out of the show. Hawk Newsome, a co-founder of Black Lives Matter in New York, was on Unfiltered Saturday night to talk about his criticisms for the city’s incoming mayor, Eric Adams. Adams is a former police captain for the NYPD, and Newsome recently warned that “if they think that they’re going to go back to the old ways of policing, then we’re going to take to the streets again. There will be riots, there will be fires and there will be bloodshed.” Adams had brushed off Newsome’s comments, calling them “fringe element” and vowing that the city was “not going to be intimidated by anyone.” “This city is not going to be a city of riots, it is not going to be a city of burning,” said Adams. Asked to respond, Newsome accused Adams of acting like a performative politician with his comments. Adams “doesn’t want to be held accountable,” declared Newsome....

    (CNN)Attorneys supporting Ahmaud Arbery's family on Thursday denounced the jury selection process in the trial of the men accused of the Black man's killing after only one Black juror was seated along with 11 White jurors. Barbara Arnwine, president of the Transformative Justice Coalition, criticized defense attorneys for questions she said they asked to strike potential Black jurors, like if they supported Black Lives Matter or believed the criminal justice system treated Black people differently than White people. Judge says there appears to be intentional discrimination in Arbery jury selection, but allows trial to move forward with 1 Black jurorThose questions targeted Black jurors for exclusion and it was disingenuous for the defense to "pretend this was about anything but getting rid of Black jurors," she said, calling it "one of the most racially discriminatory and unfair processes I've seen in my life.""There is so much wrong with what has happened in this trial. It has been racialized from the beginning," said Arnwine, who has accompanied Arbery's father to court each day. "That was done purposefully by the defense."On Friday...

Ahmaud Arberys tragic final run grips an anxious AmericaIt wasn't until a video of the shooting surfaced May 5, 2020, that the Black man's death drew nationwide attention, prompting outrage and protests -- harbingers of the demonstrations against racial injustice that would follow that summer after the May 25, 2020, murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Three White men are now set to stand trial for Arbery's murder: Gregory McMichael, his son Travis McMichael and William "Roddie" Bryan Jr. All three have pleaded not guilty, and their attorneys have previously said their clients committed no wrongdoing.

    Two doctors whose fertility companies are accused of implanting the wrong embryos in parents both live in multi-million-dollar private gated mansions in Los Angeles. Despite multiple legal claims against their firms, doctors Eliran Mor and Peyman Saadat have been successful in their fertility practices, which charge up to $23,000 per IVF cycle according to past patients.

    A family friend of the man accused of kidnapping Cleo Smith says the doll-obsessed 36-year-old must have had an accomplice because he doesn't have the 'know-how' to pull off the act alone. Terence Darrell Kelly has been charged with Cleo's kidnapping and remains in a Perth jail after his dramatic arrest last Wednesday.  Daily Mail Australia exclusively revealed how the brave four-year-old told detectives a mystery woman came to the house to dress her and brush her hair, with police now investigating the possibility another person was involved in her alleged kidnapping.  Now a family friend of Kelly has revealed she believes he had help in Cleo's 'abduction' because he doesn't have the capacity to carry out such a crime without assistance. 'He wouldn't be because he hasn't got the know-how of how to do things,' Barbara Graham told Nine. 'He would have had someone there to show him what to do and where to go and what.'

    China and Saudi Arabia have been accused of blocking efforts to make progress on a deal at the Cop26 conference by refusing to agree that they must be transparent about their greenhouse gas emissions.  Negotiators at the Climate Change conference said the countries had opposed proposals to require countries to report their emissions amid concerns that some nations hide the extent of their output.  Saudi Arabian negotiators have also been accused of trying to block the 'cover decision' - a final statement from Cop26 that could include a commitment to accelerate action to limit global warming to 1.5C to avoid the worst impacts of rising temperatures.   Saudi Arabia is concerned about divulging information about the performance of its oil giant Saudi Aramco, which is a major contributor to the country's emissions Country national plans for action this decade currently leave the world far off track on meeting the 1.5C goal which countries agreed to pursue under the Paris Agreement on climate change secured in 2015.

    DANVERS (CBS) – Angry residents ripped into Danvers school officials at a meeting Monday night, arguing they had swept an ugly chapter under the rug. “It was concealed from the community that you folks were entrusted to lead,” Karen Renieri said. “Everybody here is just covering yourself,” said Lisa Silva. “We checked the box.” They’re talking about two winters ago when a boy on the Danvers High hockey team told authorities about racial, homophobic, and anti-Semitic hazing rituals in the team locker room at their home rink, where he was whacked in the face with a sex toy and inappropriately touched while forced to stand naked. “We’ve been told that these actions do not reflect the core values, mission and vision that we seek from our school system, but yet the lack of transparency and action says otherwise,” School Committee member Alice Campbell said. An independent investigator’s report just made public is heavily redacted but concludes the same thing police and the district attorney did – there wasn’t enough evidence to bring any criminal charges. One woman says her son...

    Ahmaud Arbery, 25, who was shot and killed in Brunswick, Georgia, when he was jogging through a predominantly white neighbourhood before he was chased by three white men in pick-up trucks To black Americans, the word ‘lynching’ evokes nightmarish images of the time when their forefathers lived in fear of being murdered by lawless white mobs in a wicked campaign of violence to terrorise and control them. While some were tortured, others were mutilated and burned alive, and the bodies of men and women were hung from trees. Such lynchings were common after the emancipation of slaves, and it is estimated that there were more than 4,000 killings between 1877 and 1950. It had been hoped these vigilante attacks by white thugs on innocent blacks were a thing of the past. But they are not. Over recent weeks, the word ‘lynching’ has repeatedly been used to describe the killing of a 25-year-old former high school star athlete in the state of Georgia. Ahmaud Arbery was jogging through a predominantly white neighbourhood when he was chased by three white men in...

    China, India, the US and Australia were accused last night of weakening a pledge to phase out coal power. Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng had said the Cop26 pledge by 190 world leaders and bodies was a ‘milestone moment’.  But three of the world’s coal power giants are not signed up. The US is the world’s third biggest coal producer at 634million tons a year, second to India – 730million – and China – a massive 3.5billion.
