New Jersey couple, homeless man embroiled in $400,000 GoFundMe scandal to be charged with conspiracy

New Jersey couple, homeless man embroiled in $400,000 GoFundMe scandal to be charged with conspiracy, theft

https://www.nydailynews.com/news/crime/ny-news-gofunde-scandal-charges-20181115-story.html

A New Jersey couple and a homeless man embroiled in a GoFundMe scandal will reportedly face criminal charges after authorities say they conspired with each other to make up a false story.

Mark D'Amico, Kate McClure and Johnny Bobbitt, all linked to the $400,000 fundraising page that was shut down, are accused of conspiracy and theft by deception, a source told NBC 10 in Philadelphia.

D'Amico and McClure turned themselves into Burlington County prosecutors in New Jersey on Wednesday, according to the station. It is not known whether Bobbitt, the homeless man, has turned himself in.

The couple had launched the GoFundMe page for Bobbitt on Nov. 10, 2017 after he allegedly used his last $20 to help McClure when she was stranded on a Philadelphia highway. The page, which is "no longer accepting donations," has raised $401,921.

The FBI just released its annual hate crimes statistics. Jews were the target of 60% of anti-religious hate crimes, despite constituting just 2% of the U.S. population. This continues a longstanding trend of Jews being the most targeted group every year. https://ucr.fbi.gov/hate-crime/2017/topic-pages/tables/table-1.xls

Cemetery plots: need help please

Because this is a somewhat lugubrious topic, here's a nice kitty video to compensate for it:




Ok, now I feel better. My brother and I are trying to sell 3 cemetery plots. Nothing special about
them aside from the fact that they are all next to each other. My father wanted the whole family
buried in one place, but my brother and I have made alternate plans. Mom is already buried there.
Dad decided to go the cremation route after he bought them and is interred elsewhere.

At any rate, we're trying to sell all three, or one at a time. I've never done this kind of sale before,
so my logic was to put them all on Ebay. Not one serious bite. We think we've priced them fairly
but of course we may have to come down on price.

Is Ebay a waste of time ? How do you do this ? Thanks in advance for your help.

(Jewish Group) Germany: Merkel warns of modern racism on Kristallnacht 80th

https://www.yahoo.com/news/german-president-calls-democratic-patriotism-100608921.html

BERLIN (AP) -- Chancellor Angela Merkel and Germany's main Jewish leader warned against tolerating modern-day anti-Semitism and racism as they marked the 80th anniversary Friday of the Nazis' anti-Jewish Kristallnacht, or "Night of Broken Glass," pogrom.

On Nov. 9, 1938, Jews were terrorized throughout Germany and Austria. At least 91 people were killed, hundreds of synagogues burned down, some 7,500 Jewish businesses vandalized, and up to 30,000 Jewish men arrested, many of whom were taken away to concentration camps.

Twenty years after Germany's defeat in World War I and 5˝ years after Adolf Hitler took power, state-driven anti-Semitism "made it possible for many Germans to live out long-held resentments, to live out hatred and violence," Merkel said. "With the November pogrom, the road to the Holocaust was mapped out."

Merkel spoke in a ceremony at a Berlin synagogue. The head of Germany's Central Council of Jews, Josef Schuster, said the building was set alight in 1938 and the blaze extinguished relatively quickly only so as not to endanger neighboring houses.

In case you lurking Trumpers don't understand this phenomenon, it's called A FREAKING CULT. Time to
deprogram yourselves and get with democracy.
