    No doubt, that is pretty funny. But here is the thing: I don’t believe that there is a single person in the world dumb enough to seriously believe that anyone could, or would want to, attach a chain saw to the underside of a rifle and use it as a bayonet. Certainly no one who researched modifications to AR-15s–a subject on which a great deal has been written–would come up with a chainsaw bayonet. I think that some millennial employed (until now) by USA Today thought it would be funny to pimp his employer by including that laughable “aftermarket option”...

    (CNN)Across the state of Florida, and up into Georgia and South Carolina, images of first responders have become a welcome sight amid the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. But among the usual uniforms -- those of police, firefighters and paramedics -- a nun's habit stands out. And when said nun is wielding a chainsaw, well, that is something that can renew faith in even the most downtrodden. "There was a need, I had the means, so I wanted to help out," Sister Margaret Ann told Erin Burnett on Tuesday evening. A 30-year education veteran from Archbishop Coleman F. Carroll High School...

    Police have said they do not believe the attack is terrorism related... The attack happened after 10:30 a.m. local time (4:30 a.m. ET) in the historic town of Schaffhausen near the country’s northern border with Germany. Police described the attacker as around 190 centimeters tall (6 ft 2 in) and of an “untidy appearance.” Images of the scene on social media show a cobble-stoned street cordoned off, with police vehicles and ambulances in the area. A journalist in Schaffhausen, Marco Latzer, told CNN that helicopters were also responding at the scene.

    A local man is free on bond after his arrest Friday on charges he pulled out a chainsaw and shouted racial slurs during a road rage incident in Farmington on May 6. Michael Salafia, 30, of 64 Whitewood Drive, allegedly got out of his car with a chainsaw while at a red light and approached another driver, Farmington police said. As Salafia was advancing on the other driver, who was a black male, Salafia started the chainsaw and began yelling racial slurs, reports said. The other pulled out a gun, which he was carrying legally, police said, to stop Salafia...

    This clip would feel so different if Rand was sitting at 15-20 percent in the polls right now, smack dab in the middle of the top tier, with a huge Super PAC haul under his belt. Imagine it. With the media in early panic mode about Republicans nominating a crazed libertarian who’d take a wrecking ball to government as president, here Rand would be, goofing on the hysteria behind that image while also winking at his supporters that he might in fact be the wrecking ball the left fears. The vid would, essentially, be a form of “kidding on the...

    WASHINGTON TWP., Pa. (EYT) - Two men are facing charges following an incident at a bar in Fryburg early Saturday morning. Clarion-based State Police say the incident happened around 12:30 a.m. at a bar along Route 208 in Fryburg when 37-year-old Shawn M. Jay (pictured right), of New Bethlehem, allegedly punched a 25-year-old Shippenville man in the face. While Jay and another man, 24-year-old Robert “Buddy” Myers (pictured left), were being escorted out of the bar, Myers allegedly struck the victim in the head with a beer bottle. Police say the victim later attempted to leave the bar and Jay...

    Adamu said he fell to the ground as the gunmen stomped on his body, crying “Allahu Akbar” as his wife sobbed. When his wife realized he was alive and went to find help, she found the neighbors had been murdered. Adamu lay there for eight hours before he was able to get to a hospital. He held up photos of his bloody, swollen face after the attack for committee members to see. “I am alive because God want you to have a message,” he continued. “I have a message, just as I told my wife as I was left for...

    And you thought Octomom had her hands full—a Tennessee man who has fathered 30 children is asking the courts for a break on child support. Desmond Hatchett, 33, of Knoxville has children with 11 different women, reports WREG-TV. The state already takes half his paycheck and divides it up, which doesn't amount to much when Hatchett is making only minimum wage. Some of the moms receive as little as $1.49 a month. The oldest child is 14 years old. Hatchett explains how he reached such a critical mass: He had four kids in the same year. Twice.

    Holy cr@p! This zombie attack bike is powered by a chainsaw I'm sorry, did you think I meant a chainsaw motor? I suppose that's understandable (after all, two-stroke chainsaw engines are often used to convert bicycles into rear-wheel-drive motorbikes), but I didn't say chainsaw motor, did I? I said chainsaw. Because whoever pieced together this unholy death machine has clearly left the power source attached to a number of other components. They've even opted for a FWD conversion so that the saw's guide blade and cutting chain could be front-mounted. 100% terrifying, 100% brilliant. Perfect for plowing through hordes of...

    Run for your lives! CCTV captures moment drinker with a CHAINSAW storms into pub and attacks customers Drinkers were forced to flee for their lives when a drug-fuelled maniac burst into their pub and lunged at them with a chainsaw just minutes after he was thrown out for smoking. Dean Dinnen, 24, charged into The Endyke pub in Hull, armed with the petrol-driven chainsaw to exact revenge on a fellow customer who forced him to put out his cigarette. As he marched up to the door of the pub with the chainsaw running he turned and jabbed it towards passer-by...

    FITCHBURG -- It was a horror movie come to life. Judy Sanchez woke Thursday to the sound of heavy footsteps in her stairwell, followed by a loud motor. She got to her kitchen in time to see the blade of a chain saw rip through her front door. "It was so crazy," Judy Sanchez said. "I was terrified." Jan. 26 was the day of Operation Red Wolf, a multiagency sweep during which 16 people in Fitchburg were arrested on charges related to gang activity, drug trafficking and illegal gun sales after a two-year investigation by federal, state and local law-enforcement...

    At first, Adrian Bias had no reason to be suspicious when his neighbor, Noe Morin, came to his home Sunday morning and asked him to fix his chain saw. Bias repaired the chain saw and returned it to Morin, who asked Bias if he could trust him, according to court documents. Bias said yes. So Morin took Bias to the backyard of the Fifth Ward duplex Morin shared with his best friend, Marlon Thomas. He told Bias to look through a hole in the fence into the backyard of a vacant home next door. Bias peeked through the opening and...

    FORT LAUDERDALE — A Miramar woman was sentenced Thursday to 10 years in federal prison for trying to hire a hit man to kill her ex-husband. Mercedes Morales, 58, talked about having her former spouse hacked to death with a chainsaw because she believed his betrayal led to her serving prison time for laundering drug money, according to court documents. Her plan for revenge came unraveled when it turned out the man she thought would kill her ex-husband was a government informant.

    Woman wanted her ex-hubby chopped up with a chainsaW Dropping a dime on your wife to the feds is cold hearted, so Fred Coral had to know that retribution was coming. He probably didn't know he would be financing it. The FBI claims his former wife, Mercedes Morales, paid a hitman with a $5,000 diamond ring to kill Coral for turning her into police in 2003 for money laundering, according to the Miami Herald. Agents arrested 57-year-old Morales on Monday in Miramar and she is charged with plotting to murder her ex. The ring was likely the wedding ring Coral...
