Mahoney said the suspects...

    BROKEN ARROW, Okla. – Police responding to a silent 911 call found five people stabbed to death inside a well-kept suburban Tulsa home, then detained two teenage male relatives of the victims after a police dog tracked them down in nearby woods. Broken Arrow Police Sgt. Thomas Cooper said Thursday that officers responded to the house near the Indian Springs Country Club after emergency operators received an "open 911 call" -- a call in which no one speaks but the line remains connected. Police traced the number to the home and found a scene so disturbing that police warned that...

    In 1958, America accidentally dropped a nuclear weapon on two little girls’ playhouse For certain rural residents of the Carolinas during the Cold War, apocalyptic anxiety hit disturbingly close to home. In 1958 and 1961, the American Air Force lost nuclear weapons over the skies of South and North Carolina, respectively, raining potential apocalypse on the folks below. In both incidents, complete catastrophe was avoided thanks to that ever-potent combination of foresight and unmitigated dumb luck. And in the former incident, the bomb fell square on some unsuspecting children's playhouse. The first accident occurred over Florence, South Carolina on March...
  • Mystery of lost US nuclear bomb

    The United States abandoned a nuclear weapon beneath the ice in northern Greenland following a crash in 1968, a BBC investigation has found. Its unique vantage point - perched at the top of the world - has meant that Thule Air Base has been of immense strategic importance to the US since it was built in the early 1950s, allowing a radar to scan the skies for missiles coming over the North Pole. The Pentagon believed the Soviet Union would take out the base as a prelude to a nuclear strike against the US and so in 1960 began flying...

    SAVANNAH, Ga. - The first government search in decades for a hydrogen bomb lost off the Georgia coast in 1958 found no trace of the sunken weapon, the Air Force said Friday. The report — issued nine months after scientists tested radiation levels off Tybee Island — concluded that there is no danger of a nuclear blast from the 7,600-pound bomb and that the weapon should be left where it is, buried somewhere in the muck. "We still think it's irretrievably lost. We don't know where to look for it," said Billy Mullins, an Air Force nuclear weapons adviser who...

    Religion taboo topic on public busCity sued over policy restricting passengers' speech Posted: May 3, 20031:00 a.m. Eastern By Diana Lynne© 2003 If you're planning to ride public transportation in Broken Arrow, Okla., you better bring a book, because striking up a conversation with someone might land you curbside. The Broken Arrow Bus Service, or BABS, regulates the behavior of its passengers, forbidding them from eating, drinking, fighting or using vulgar language while on the bus. On its website the city lists these "safety rules," but fails to mention a public-speech policy that is actively enforced. Regular passengers Vincenza Siano and...

    By Chuck Hansen In February 1958, at Greenham Common airbase near Newbury, England, a U.S. Air Force B-47 experienced engine trouble on takeoff and jettisoned two full 1,700-gallon wingtip fuel tanks from an altitude of 8,000 feet. One or both of the falling tanks missed a designated safe impact area and exploded 65 feet behind a parked B-47 loaded with nuclear weapons. The resulting fire burned for 16 hours, detonating the high explosives in at least one weapon, destroying the parked bomber, killing two people, and injuring eight others. It caused the release of radioactive material, including finely powdered uranium...
