Man dressed as Rick James robs Indiana bank

Man dressed as Rick James robs Indiana bank



http://www.wcnc.com/story/news/nation-now/2015/09/25/man-dressed-rick-james-super-fly-movie-robs-indiana-bank/72803334/

Bank robbers typically conceal their faces with masks or a pair of panty hose, but this may be one of the most creative disguises police have seen.

A man dressed like legendary musician Rick James robbed a bank in Indianapolis on Saturday, Sept. 19, according to a statement from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. The man was accompanied by an accomplice who dressed like Youngblood Priest from the classic 70s movie Super Fly.

Police said the pair entered the Indiana Members Credit Union around noon on Saturday, and demanded money.

The duo was armed and fled with an "undisclosed" amount of cash. The suspects both wore dark sunglasses, and the man dressed after the late Rick James was "5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches," according to the statement.

Carly Fiorina's Most Excellent Pregnancy Center Photo Op Adventure



Carly Fiorina's presidential campaign took her to an exam room at a crisis pregnancy center in South Carolina Thursday. She crammed in, along with a pregnant woman, an OBGYN doctor, and a crowd of reporters.

The visit came as the former Hewlett-Packard CEO has doubled down on her opposition to Planned Parenthood. She visited the Carolina Pregnancy Center in Spartanburg, a Christian-run organization that's becoming a popular campaign stop for presidential candidates opposed to abortion — she's at least the fifth GOP candidate to visit the center this year.

One client, Lacey Thomas, 31, is expecting a baby boy in February. She agreed to let Dr. Mary Haddad demonstrate a procedure for Fiorina. Speaking in the center's front room, Fiorina praised the group's work. She told the crowd it's hypocritical for liberals to support environmental protections for wildlife, while also supporting abortion rights.

"They are perfectly prepared to destroy other people's jobs and livelihoods and communities in order to protect fish and frogs and flies. But they do not think a 17-week-old, a 20-week-old, a 24-week-old, is worth saving," she said.

"This year, as a senior, she won the coveted crown of Homecoming Queen."



Landon knew she was a woman all her life, but came out as transgender last year during her junior year.

Landon Patterson, 17, is the first transgender homecoming queen in her school’s history. And the high school senior began transitioning just last year as a junior, though she’s always identified as a woman. She says that her decision to come out was made easier in part by the support of her peers and her family.

“To be elected homecoming queen was an amazing feeling,” Patterson tells BuzzFeed News. “I was so excited that my peers felt so accepting of me and excited that I was making history for the trans/LGBT community.”

“When I came out as trans I was so afraid that I was expecting a lot of hate, but surprisingly there wasn’t much at all,” she tells BuzzFeed News.

“What a great week,” she captioned smiling photos with friends after winning her crown.

92-year-old war vet sings to dying wife



A video of a 92-year-old World War II veteran serenading his dying wife has gone viral.

According to the couple's granddaughter, Howard and Laura have been married for 73 years. Laura was in hospice care at the time the video was recorded and had been told she only had about a week to live.

Howard sang "You'll Never Know" by Rosemary Clooney with Harry James. Erin says that the couple often referred to the song as their "love song." They even sang it together during a reception after they renewed their wedding vows on their 50th anniversary.

Chicago TV station promotes Yom Kippur with image of a star that the Nazis forced Jews to wear

A Chicago TV station has apologized after it used an image of a star that the Nazis forced Jews to wear as the station aired a segment about Yom Kippur, the most solemn day in the Jewish year.

As anchor Tom Negovan reported a story about the holiday, which ran from Tuesday evening to Wednesday sundown, the image projected behind him was of the yellow patch on a background of white and blue stripes similar to the uniforms that Jews and other inmates wore in concentration camps.

A Twitter storm began almost immediately when Mark Larkinsky, an editor at Chicago Lawyer magazine, quickly tweeted his shock and amazement at the error.

"Holy crap,@WGNNews, this is your stock photo for a Jewish holiday?? Nobody thought that's a bad choice of photo?

Mom buys coffee for two women who mocked her

Mom buys coffee for two women who mocked her



Dianne Hoffmeyer visits the Fort Gratiot Tim Horton’s Tuesday, Sept. 22, 2015, after a Facebook post she made about an incident at the coffee shop went viral. (Photo: Submitted)

http://www.wcnc.com/story/news/nation-now/2015/09/24/mom-buys-coffee-women-mocked-appearance-weight/72730168/

Dianne Hoffmeyer, was ordering doughnut holes for her 2-year-old and a cup of coffee for herself at Tim Horton's in Fort Gratiot, Mich., when she heard two women behind her commenting on her appearance. She said the women called her a "whale" and commented on her hair.

What the women didn't know, Hoffmeyer said, was that the doughnut holes she purchased were for her 2-year-old daughter, Liliana, who'd been up all night teething.

And the coffee was meant to be a pick-me-up after a long night with Liliana and an early morning doctor's appointment for the toddler. They also didn't know that Hoffmeyer, 41, recently had lost 177 pounds over 22 months after being diagnosed with congestive heart failure during her pregnancy with Lily.

"I was really mad and I'm usually not quiet," Hoffmeyer said. "I've got a big mouth." Instead of retaliating, Hoffmeyer held her tongue and paid for the women's coffee. She said her kids influenced her decision.
