    Police have named the man accused of stabbing two people inside the Mall of America during a botched robbery attempt Sunday. Officials identified him as Mahad Abdiaziz Abdirahaman, 20, according to a local CBS report.

    If you get caught allegedly shoplifting in a store, it's probably not a good idea to go back there. Two Pennsylvania women were caught on video trashing a 7-Eleven after employees locked them inside and called police after they allegedly were in the store a day earlier shoplifting. The two women also got into a fight with 7-Eleven employees and responding police officers, according to Philly.com. The two women - 20-year-old Lashae Whitaker and 28-year-old Tiera Brown - entered the 7-Eleven on Oct. 1 when they were locked inside as employees called the police. In the video, Whitaker is shown...

    A mysterious series of apparently random killings in Kansas City, mostly committed in isolated spots along walking trails, came to an end when the killer deviated from his pattern with a brazen, execution-style shooting in broad daylight on a city street, according to Jackson County prosecutors. The fifth and final killing came shortly after noon on Aug. 13, when 22-year-old Fredrick Demond Scott allegedly followed a man from a city bus, crept up behind him on the street and shot him in the head — before turning and getting right back on a bus. Like the other four victims Scott...

    Members of an Amish community in Kentucky may take their cases to court after being cited for violating an ordinance requiring horses to wear bags to catch their droppings. The Bowling Green Daily News reports 13 members of the Swartzentruber Amish sect in Auburn appeared in court Wednesday and were told their trials will begin August 2 if they can't settle the cases before then. The defendants belong to a conservative sect that rejects motor vehicles and most modern technology and travel by horse-drawn buggies. They believe the bags violate their community's religious standards.

    This is yet another reason why the Food and Drug Administration should be abolished.  A 56-year-old Amish farmer is now facing 68 years in federal prison because he made a natural health product. Samuel Girod is the father of twelve and grandfather of 25.  He produces natural products in his own kitchen.  Since 2015, he has been facing a 12-count federal indictment. WKYT reports: Girod's troubles started back in 2013 when someone reported his products to the state health department in Missouri. A federal judge in Missouri put an injunction in place, banning Girod from making some of his products...
