    A downtown Los Angeles jury ruled this week that a Long Beach police officer was negligent when he struggled with a man on a Metro platform before the man’s lower body was crushed by the platform and a train in 2017, killing him. Jurors on Wednesday, Jan. 18, voted unanimously that Officer Martin Ron’s negligence was a substantial factor in the death of Cesar Rodriguez, 23, according to court records. On Friday, the civil trial was in the penalty phase — when jurors determine how much is paid out to the Rodriguez family. “It was like my heart just dropped to the floor and hearing my mom cry, having that officer right there, I just broke into tears,” Evelia Granados, the youngest of Rodriguez’s three siblings, said about when the verdicts were read. “He could have avoided all this and my brother could have still been here with us.” Attorneys representing Rodriguez’s family and Long Beach declined to comment on the verdicts, pending the outcome of the penalty phase. In 2018, Rodriguez’s family filed a federal wrongful-death lawsuit against Long...

    Jesse C. Navarro, the man who the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said fatally shot Deputy Darnell Calhoun, was described in court documents as a violent methamphetamine addict who records show was once ordered to turn in his gun. It’s unclear whether Navarro complied with that order or whether he used the same weapon to kill Calhoun, 30, who was gunned down as he arrived at a domestic violence call on Hilldale Lane on Jan. 13 in the unincorporated Lakeland Village community near Lake Elsinore. Navarro’s wife, Yvette Navarro, filed a request for a temporary restraining order in 2004 that listed four children living at their Wildomar home, daughters ages 5, 4 and 17 months, and a 4-month-old son.

    A judge on Tuesday sentenced a Mongols Motorcycle Club member to 10 years in prison for killing a Pomona SWAT officer who was serving a search warrant at the man’s San Gabriel home in 2014. But 44-year-old David Martinez won’t be serving a decade in prison since he has been in custody since 2014. His defense attorney Brady Sullivan calculated Martinez has been in county jail for eight years and three months. His release date would have been March 26, according to Sullivan. No release date has been set. Martinez took a deal and pleaded no contest on Nov. 30 to the voluntary manslaughter of Officer Shaun Diamond and assault with a firearm on a police officer. Judge Charlaine F. Olmedo gave him 10 years for the manslaughter and 10 years for the assault but stayed the sentence for the assault charge. Deputy District Attorney Jack Garden had asked the court for a maximum sentence of 33 years to life. Pomona Police Officer Shaun Diamond was shot while serving a search warrant at a home in the 100 block of...

    Alexi Lalas believes Gregg Berhalter should be given the chance to continue as USA coach despite the leaking of his drunken argument with now-wife Rosalind, which he hopes will not 'take down a good man'. Earlier this month Berhalter was forced to publicly admit to kicking Rosalind in the legs during a violent row back in 1991, having been threatened by a mystery blackmailer who approached US soccer and threatened to 'take him down' with the information. It later emerged that the mother of USA international Gio Reyna, Danielle, had informed the country's governing body about the incident in question. Reyna, who represents Borussia Dortmund at club level, was widely expected to be a central figure for USA at the recent Qatar World Cup, only to end up being used as a substitute by Berhalter. Danielle, fueled by frustration with her son's lack of minutes, then made a move that Berhalter insists was a clear attempt 'to bring about the end of my relationship with US Soccer'. He also admitted the incident was 'a shameful moment and one I regret to...

    The family of a man who starved to death in an Arkansas jail because he was unable to pay his $100 bail have sued after his medication was taken away and he had to eat his own feces.  Larry Eugene Price Jr., 51, died at the Sebastian County Detention Center in August 2021, after being held for a little over a year at the facility awaiting trial on a terroristic threatening charge, a felony. Price, who had a history of serious mental illness - including schizophrenia and bipolar disorder - had been held in solitary confinement at the county facility, according to the lawsuit. The lawsuit against Sebastian County accused the jail and its medical provider of neglecting Price as he ate and drank less over the course of a year and his weight dropped from 185 pounds to 90 pounds. Jail staff also discontinued Price's mental health medications after he refused to take them, the lawsuit said, and didn't make any effort to follow up with the inmate to address his mental health needs. Price was arrested in August 2020...
    It was a new initiative that mobilized the entire government to address gun crimes from a public health perspective. Prevention and intervention were major priorities because the consensus from criminal justice experts was that you couldn’t arrest your way out of the problem. The people leading the efforts to calm tensions after a shooting or connect a formerly incarcerated resident to job training were dedicated to their communities. But there was one glaring omission from the violence prevention ecosystem that complicated our work: parents and families. No amount of planning and strategizing about gun violence will be successful if elected officials and their advisers ignore the role families play in socialization and values development. When a teenage boy shoots and kills one of his peers, the first adults who should be held accountable for his actions are his parents, not teachers or social workers. This all-encompassing view of government has functioned as a cultural steroid for decades, deforming the body politic by increasing the power of elected officials and unelected bureaucrats while the American family has atrophied....

    Amid the fripperies on show at Andrew Tate’s palatial Romanian mountainside villa, a humble chess board is a stark reminder of the past he has left behind. By his own admission, the carved set is a nod to the toxic influencer’s late father, an International Chess Master and former U.S. Air Force sergeant who died in 2015. Heaven knows what that brilliant man, who learned to speak fluent Russian while working in Cold War-era Berlin, would have made of his louche eldest son — arguably both the most loathed and yet, paradoxically, the most popular man on the internet, thanks to his unique brand of misogyny. Tate, 36, who was raised by his British mother on a council estate in Bedfordshire, has been locked up in a Bucharest prison cell ever since an armed raid on his secret bolthole on the outskirts of Bucharest on December 29.

    Tom Hanks has hit back at claims his children were beneficiaries of nepotism as he insisted they all were merely entering the 'family business'.  Speaking with Reuters via The Sun, Hanks drew comparisons to small businesses run by families where everyone in the household was expected to contribute.

    OAKLAND — As part of a plea agreement, a Livermore man has admitted to fatally stabbing his father inside their home, but prosecutors and the defense agree that he was legally insane at the time of the murder, court records show. Timothy Young, 28, pleaded no contest in December to a count of second degree murder, and attorneys on both sides stipulated that he was not guilty by reason of insanity. The agreement means that Young can be held in a mental health facility for up to the amount of time he’d have served in prison for the same offense, which is 15 years to life. It also means he could be released if doctors agree his sanity is “restored.” Young was arrested on Jan. 2, 2021, after he called 911, claimed to have been sexually assaulted, and told the dispatcher his father — Edward Tsung Yung Young — was dead. Responding officers found Yung Young dead from stab wounds. Young was also treated for wounds to his hands and abdomen, though doctors determined the injuries could have been self-inflicted,...

    Virginia State Police officials admitted Wednesday, Dec. 7, that they botched the background check that allowed Austin Lee Edwards, the man who killed three members of a Riverside family in November, to enter the agency’s academy in 2021. Edwards was taken in for a mental-health evaluation in 2016 after cutting himself, biting his father and threatening to kill himself and his father, according to an incident report written by the Abingdon Police Department. Strapped to a stretcher, Edwards was taken first to a hospital, and then to a facility where patients can be given short-term treatment for a crisis. Virginia State Police, citing a state law regarding privacy, would not disclose how long Edwards was kept. Edwards, in applying for the academy, did not disclose the incident that happened in a small town on Virginia’s southern border. And the report was not discovered during the background check because “human error resulted in an incomplete database query during Edwards’ hiring process,” Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said in a news release. “Although we believe this to be an isolated incident,...
    A mom has sparked fierce online debate regarding the 'unwritten rule' of bringing kids in the first class section of planes after detailing a recent incident where she was chided by a fellow passenger for doing so. In an impassioned post to Reddit Saturday, the unnamed mother laid out the saga to strangers on the the 'Am I the A******' subreddit' - where users ask others opinions on specific situations to discern whether they were in the right. The Reddit user did not reveal her name, but said that the incident transpired on a cross-country flight the past Thanksgiving, when she and her husband - along with their two-year-old daughter - were flying to see relatives. Having some extra money due to a recent raise the husband received, the family decided to splurge on seats in first class - but were quickly confronted by a nasty passenger before the plane even took off. What ensued was a contentious clash that saw the disgruntled male rider allegedly complain to staff twice before hurling an expletive at the dumbfounded mom. Despite the...
    The Mall of America said Monday that it will toughen its trespassing policies as part of a settlement with the family of a Woodbury boy who was severely injured when a man with a history of causing disturbances at the shopping center threw the child from a third-floor balcony. File: Emmanuel Aranda. (Courtesy of the Bloomington Police Department)  Additional details of the settlement were not released by the boy’s family or the mall. The boy, identified only as Landen, was 5 in April 2019 when Emmanuel Aranda threw him nearly 40 feet to the ground.

He pleaded guilty to attempted first-degree murder and was sentenced to 19 years in prison for the attack on Landen. The family alleged in a lawsuit filed last year that mall security should have prevented Aranda from “prowling” at the building without an officer following him closely. The lawsuit alleged that the mall and its security...

    A Florida frat boy who murdered a married couple and chewed the face of one of his victims could be 'freed within six months of entering a mental health facility,' after the 'cannibal' college student was deemed not guilty by reason of insanity this week. Austin Harrouff, 25, claimed he had been fleeing a demon-like figure when he ran into a Tequesta home and attacked John Stevens, 59, and his wife Michelle Mishcon, 53, spitting out a piece of flesh when deputies arrived and finally subdued him. At the time of the murders, Harrouff was 19 and had been found in the garage of the home with a machete, gnawing at Stevens face as he lay dying and covered in blood. Mishcon's sisters, Cindy, told the New York Post that prosecutors had told them Harrouff could get out of a mental rehabilitation hospital in a matter of months after Monday's controversial plea deal was announced. 'They told us that he'll now go to some sort of mental hospital, but it's not a place where people are held for long. You...
    A man stabbed his wife, their four-year-old and six-year-old daughters, and a relative before killing himself inside a million dollar home in the Chicago-suburb of Buffalo Grove, law enforcement officials believe according to one report.  Officials with the Buffalo Grove Police Department on Thursday announced the names and causes of death for the five individuals found by officers who had been called to the home for a wellness check.  Andrei Kisliak, 39; Vera Kisliak, 36; Vivian Kisliak, 6; Lilia Kisliak, 67; and Amilia Kisliak, 4, all died from 'sharp force injuries' police said Thursday during a press conference.

    OAKLAND — Despite a defense attorney insisting he was a “peacemaker” and family protector, a Stockton man has been ordered to stand trial on charges of murdering his sister’s boyfriend and shooting a family dog during a heated confrontation outside of an Oakland residence, court records show. Sammie Brown, 29, was ordered to stand trial on charges of murdering Karongie Louis Bell, 23, of Sacramento, and shooting a pit bull named Precious during an Aug. 27, 2020 incident outside a home on the 1100 block of 76th Avenue.

The preliminary hearing, where prosecutors called neighbors, members of Bell’s family, and police investigators to testify, revealed that the shooting was captured...

    The family of Angel Ramos on Wednesday became the latest family to settle with the City of Vallejo over a wrongful death case. The total this time is $2.8 million. The civil rights and wrongful death case was against Vallejo as well as Vallejo Police Officer Zach Jacobsen, who killed Ramos on Jan. 23, 2017. The City of Vallejo has now paid $14.9 million in settlements in 24 civil rights lawsuits for incidents since Jan. 1, 2012. “There will never be a dollar amount high enough to measure the value of Angel’s life and what our family lost,” Angel’s sister Antoinette Saddler said in a news release. “We have experienced pain, terror and anxiety that no words can ever explain, and no family should ever have to experience.” Ramos’ attorney, Melissa Nold, told the Times-Herald that it’s not necessarily a day of celebration or congratulations. She said she is “glad the family won’t have to spend another 10 years in court.” “Angel’s family was still looking at another 7-10 years of litigation and frivolous appeals to resolve their case, so...
    DEAR ABBY: I have been married to “Jeff” for nearly 50 years. He suddenly learned through DNA that he has a 52-year-old son. The son has visited him, and they have talked on the phone. The guy was conceived in the summer of 1970. I started seeing my husband in September of that year. Jeff wants this man to leave him alone, and I can’t deal with it either. We have three grown children, two of whom have become friends with this guy. There’s no denying him. He looks more like Jeff than our son does. Evidently, the mother (who is deceased) never told him who his dad was. Are we wrong to feel this way? DON’T WANT TO DEAL WITH IT DEAR DON’T: What does this man want from your husband? If it’s information, it should be shared. However, if what he’s seeking is the father he never had and a sense of belonging in your family, and you don’t have it in your hearts to give it to him, then your feelings are your feelings. You have a...

    "The candidate teaching all this mother f***ing misinformation is going to die," Lennox allegedly said. "So honestly he should just kill himself before anything else happens.” “So f*** him for being a piece of s**t,” Lennox allegedly said of Bailey in the voicemail. “So you know what? I am going to take anything and everything possible. You know what? I am going to make him scream. I am going to make him scream and suffer. Yeah, that’s right. So he better kill himself, and if he doesn’t, I am going to kill him." Lennox reportedly said he does not like current Illinois Gov. J.B.

    The face of a Connecticut farmer thought to be a vampire when he died of tuberculosis in the 19th century has been seen for the first time since his corpse was mutilated and tossed into a grave. The disease turns people's skin a pale yellow, their eyes become red and swollen and they sometimes have bloodstains around their mouth from coughing, which was believed to be signs of the undead about 200 years ago. The man's skeleton, buried in a casket with 'JB55' engraved on it, was used to performed a DNA analysis that was fed to a machine learning system to predict what he may have looked like before being riddled with the disease.  The results showed he had fair skin, brown or hazel eyes, brown or black hair and some freckles.   The man, a farmer who lived in Connecticut, died of tuberculosis in the 19th century, which led people to believe he was a vampire.
