Image Of Jesus Left Outside Mosque To Insult Muslims


A large painting of Jesus was left outside a mosque in Long Island in what police are investigating as a bias incident.

The Hillside Islamic Center in North New Hyde Park said an employee discovered the picture on Friday on a fence outside the mosque.

Mosque president Abdul Aziz Bhuyian told The Island Now surveillance from the building showed a man had cycled up to the mosque and hung the picture outside.

“I’m sure… he wanted to provoke,” Bhuyian told the website. “Had he had good intentions he would have come to us. We’re always here,” he said, adding: “We want to make sure the person doesn’t do the same thing to anybody else.”


Had the picture hanger bothered to check, he would have discovered Jesus is quite revered in Islam.

Oregon woman who licked, groped another woman on flight is sentenced

Oregon woman who licked, groped another woman on flight is sentenced

An Oregon woman who licked, groped and verbally harassed a female passenger during a flight from Las Vegas to Portland was sentenced Monday to eight months of home detention.

Heidi McKinney, 27, of Banks declined to make a statement during Monday’s sentencing at the federal courthouse in Portland, The Oregonian/OregonLive reported. McKinney, who wrote a letter of apology to the victim, pleaded guilty in March to assault with intent to commit a felony.

In addition to home detention, McKinney was sentenced to three years on probation. She must also pay $3,000 restitution and abstain from alcohol.

McKinney was arrested May 8, 2016, after the Alaska Airlines flight landed at Portland International Airport. The 19-year-old victim told authorities she had been touched without consent.

Batman? We don't need no stinkin' Batman

Police Shoot People Dressed As The Joker And Harley Quinn

Australian police shot a man and a woman dressed as comic book characters while they performed a sexual act at a nightclub early Saturday morning, news.com.au reported. The man and the woman were dressed as the Joker and Harley Quinn.

Dale Ewins, 35, was shot in the stomach by police. Authorities said they shot him because he pointed his toy gun at them and they believed it was a real weapon. However, club security said Ewins did not aim the gun at them.

Zita Sukys, 37, was shot in the leg. Both were attending the Saints & Sinners Ball, described as a party “for Australian swingers and those who are just curious.” Promotions for the party also said it has “a well-earned reputation as Australia’s, if not the world’s, raunchiest party.”

Ewins was rushed to the Royal Melbourne Hospital with critical injuries, but he was later stabilized. He was Tasered by police after they shot him, according to The Age Sunday. Sukys, who obtained a less serious injury, was taken to The Alfred Hospital.

GoPro video captures moment educator clips cyclist in hit-and-run

A video captured on a GoPro camera shows a car clipping a cyclist, sending him tumbling to the pavement, then leaving the scene on the Natchez Trace Parkway in Tennessee.

Marshall Grant Neely III, 58, of Franklin, Tennessee, was arrested after the crash, which occurred on Saturday, according to police, and faces several charges, including reckless endangerment, leaving the scene of an accident, failure to immediately notify of an accident and failure to render aid.

Neely was booked into the Williamson County Detention Center in Tennessee, and officials said that he may face additional charges, possibly including federal ones, in the days ahead.

He was released on $11,500 bond and has a court date scheduled for July 20. Calls to Neely from ABC News on Sunday afternoon were not immediately returned.

North Kansas City man accused of sexually assaulting 1-year-old

North Kansas City man accused of sexually assaulting 1-year-old girl gets charged with sodomy

When a family forgot something at home, court documents say they returned to find a family friend fondling their 1-year-old daughter.

The Clay County prosecutor has charged Jayson Newlun with statutory sodomy.

Court papers say that the victim’s family left her in Newlun’s care while they went to the store. They returned after about five minutes to retrieve food assistance paperwork, and found Newlun in a compromising position with the girl in her bedroom.

After the girl’s mom caught Newlun allegedly sexually assaulting the girl, she alerted the dad who tackled the suspect, hit him with a dresser drawer and then punched him several times.


Beating him with a dresser drawer is quite creative. I cannot say in this situation I would have been so lenient.

Another child was found with injuries, officials said. That girl's condition was unknown.

All of the children discovered at the home near Loganville, about 30 miles east of Atlanta, appear to be under age 10, officials said. The male victim was in his mid-30s.


Cops get complaint about slip-and-slide, end up going on it

Cops get complaint about slip-and-slide, end up going on it

It was a telltale sign the party was coming to an end: The police showed up.

But when cops in Asheville, North Carolina, responded to a complaint about a giant slip-and-slide that had been set up for a Fourth of July block party, they did the unexpected: They took a ride themselves.

Resident Katlen Joyce Smith said one of the local dads decided to build a slip-and-slide for the neighborhood kids to enjoy during the annual block party.

In the middle of the party, two officers showed up. They had received a complaint from one of the neighbors that the DIY water slide was blocking the road, Asheville police said.

A little lighter news...

Authorities: Texas mom left 2 kids in hot car as punishment

Authorities: Texas mom left 2 kids in hot car as punishment

WEATHERFORD, Texas (AP) — A Texas woman told investigators that she left her 2-year-old daughter and 16-month-old son in a hot car where they died last month to teach the girl a lesson and that they didn't lock themselves in, as she initially reported, according to sheriff's officials.

Cynthia Marie Randolph, 24, was being held Saturday on two counts of causing serious bodily injury to a child. It wasn't clear if she had an attorney — online jail records didn't list one for her — and she doesn't have a listed phone number.

According to the criminal complaint, Randolph initially told investigators she was inside her rural home west of Fort Worth folding laundry and watching TV on May 26 while the children were playing on the enclosed back porch. She said when she noticed they were no longer there, she went looking for them and found them about a half-hour later locked in the car. The children were unresponsive and Randolph said she broke a window to gain entry. Temperatures that day reached into the mid-90s.

At the time Randolph said the kids were exposed to the extreme temperatures in the car for "no more than an hour." But her account of that day changed over the course of several interviews with investigators until she acknowledged on Friday that she left them in the car intentionally, the Parker County Sheriff's Office said in a news release. She told investigators that she found the kids playing in the car and when the 2-year-old refused to get out, she shut the door to teach her a lesson, thinking her daughter could get herself and her brother out of the vehicle when ready.

Prominent black NRA defender criticizes ruling in Philando Castile case

Prominent black NRA defender criticizes ruling in Philando Castile case

Two days after Philando Castile was shot dead by a police officer during a traffic stop, the National Rifle Association issued a statement.

Castile’s death was “troubling”, the group said, adding that it supported the right of law-abiding Americans to carry firearms, no matter their race. “Rest assured,” the statement added, “the NRA will have more to say once all the facts are known.”

On Friday in St Paul, Minnesota, close to a year on, police officer Jeronimo Yanez was cleared of all charges in the death of Castile, a beloved elementary school cafeteria worker who had a permit for the firearm he was carrying when he died. There were protests in St Paul. The NRA remained silent.

However, the group’s most prominent black commentator, Colion Noir, is speaking out about the decision.


Milwaukee mayor urges peaceful protest after ex-cop cleared

Source: AP via Yahoo news

MILWAUKEE (AP) — A Milwaukee jury on Wednesday acquitted a former police officer in the on-duty shooting of a black man last year that ignited riots on the city's north side.

Jurors found that Dominique Heaggan-Brown, who is also black, was not guilty of first-degree reckless homicide when he shot 23-year-old Sylville Smith after a brief foot chase following a traffic stop Aug. 13. Smith had a gun when he ran, but the case hinged on whether he was a threat when Heaggan-Brown fired the shot that killed him.

Body-camera video showed Heaggan-Brown shooting Smith once in the arm as he appeared to be throwing the gun over a fence. The video showed the second shot — 1.69 seconds later — hit Smith in the chest as he lay on the ground.

Prosecutors argued Smith was defenseless at the time of the second shot because he had thrown the gun over the fence. Defense attorneys argued Heaggan-Brown had to act quickly to defend himself.
