    The Mall of America has confidentially settled a lawsuit with the family of a five-year-old boy who was tossed off a third-floor balcony by a man who claimed he was 'looking for someone to kill'.  Landen Hoffman, now eight, was five years old when the man with a history of causing a disturbance at the mall threw him off a balcony - 40-feet to the ground - at the shopping center in Bloomington, Minnesota in April 2019. The child suffered severe head trauma and multiple broken bones. Emmanuel Aranda, 24, pleaded guilty to attempted first-degree murder and was sentenced to 19 years in prison for the attack on the boy. Aranda, who had been banned from the mall in two other instances, told investigators he committed that horrific act after 'a woman rejected his advances.' As part of the settlement, the Mall of America has promised to toughen its trespassing policies.  Landen Hoffman, now eight, was five years old when  when a man with a history of causing disturbances at the mall threw him off a balcony - 40 feet to...
    A man who says he was a dog-walker for sex trafficker and Jeffrey Epstein's madam Ghislaine Maxwell revealed that she forbid him from saying who he worked for and that she was often paranoid, believing someone wanted to murder her. Rasmus Alpsjö, now 31, said he was one of several men - all young and Swedish, he noted - charged with the care of Captain Nemo, Maxwell's dog for a few months back in 2015 and lived in her basement at the time. Maxwell is awaiting sentencing at a Brooklyn jail after being found guilty of sex trafficking minors for her involvement in helping Epstein lure underage girls before he sexually assaulted them. She is now facing 65 years behind bars in a federal prison - prompting speculation she could now 'flip' and discuss the actions of others within Epstein's circle in a bid to receive a lighter sentence.  Alpsjö said that while he had no idea of any of the crimes Maxwell, 60, was eventually sent to prison for, he alleges that Maxwell's secret husband Scott Borgerson was intimidating...
    A Michigan woman pleaded guilty after trying to hire someone to kill her ex-husband through a fake murder-for-hire website called 'Rent-A-Hitman,' according to authorities.  Wendy Lynn Wein, 52, of South Rockford, entered in a guilty plea Friday after using the phony website last year in an effort to have her former husband murdered, according to Fox 2 Detroit and Rolling Stone magazine. 'Got A Problem That Needs Resolving? With Over 17,985 US Based Field Operatives, We Can Find A Solution That's Right For You!' the website reads, alongside a badge showing that the website is the only organization in the world that is '100 percent compliant with the Hitman Information Privacy & Protection Act of 1964.' 'All of our competitors websites cannot say that and shouldn't be trusted — Capisce!' Wein completed a service request on the site in July of 2020, writing to a made-up contracted killer by the name of Guido Fanelli that she wanted to have her ex-husband killed because he stole $20,000 from her.   Pictured: Wendy Lynn Wein, 52, of South Rockford, entered in a guilty plea Friday after...
    After he discharged a gun on a movie set Thursday resulting in the death of one crew member and the injury of another, actor Alec Baldwin is now getting trolled on social media for his anti-gun activism and an old tweet in which he wondered “how it must feel to wrongfully kill someone.” Alec Baldwin, who mercilessly mocked President Donald Trump on NBC’s Saturday Night Live, has not been charged with any crimes, but the Santa Fe County, New Mexico, Sheriff said the investigation is ongoing. The incident occurred Thursday afternoon on the New Mexico set of the movie Rust, a western that Baldwin is producing and starring in. Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was hit with a live round and taken to an area hospital where she later died. Director Joel Souza was injured and also taken to a hospital. He has since been released, according to a tweet from actress Frances Fisher, who is also starring in the movie.

Per Newsweek, speaking with MSNBC host Hallie Jackson, Meijer said that many of his colleagues are concerned for their safety.

    During a Thursday interview on “MSNBC Live,” Rep. Peter Meijer (R-MI) discussed the House’s vote to impeach President Donald Trump for “incitement of insurrection” after a group of his supporters breached the U.S. Capitol. On Wednesday, Trump became the first President of the United States in history to be impeached on two separate occasions. Meijer said he and his colleagues who voted to impeach the president now “fear for their safety.” He added the “expectation is someone may try to kill us,” so they are altering routines and buying body armor. Anchor Hallie Jackson asked Meijer, “Did you receive death threats? Did that factor to your decision beforehand?” “We are still sifting through a lot of the information. To answer your question, that did not factor in my decision. I think you have to set that aside. I don’t believe in giving an assassin’s veto, an insurrectionist’s veto, a heckler’s veto,” Meijer replied. “If we let that guide decisions, then you are kind of running to the mob. I mean, that’s the definition of terrorism is trying to achieve a political...
    Ashley Ard became known as 'the most hated woman in Alaska' after leaving her newborn baby girl for dead in a local park, within hours of giving birth to her in the bath at home.

Ashley Ard (pictured) became known as 'the most hated...
