    The kidnapped girl lost a lot of weight while in the “care” of the former teacher who abducted her Alleged kidnapper Tad Cummins remains behind bars for abducting a minor and having illegal sexual relations with her. On top of that, the former teacher is accused of making the teen eat wildflowers for nutrition after he ran out of money. Jason Whatley, the family lawyer for the Thomas family, said that although 15-year-old Elizabeth Thomas is now home and safe with her family, she’ll need intensive counseling to help her deal with and process the hardships she endured while she...

    GREENACRES— Enraged from seeing the dating website Match.com on a man’s computer last week, Lucy Melesky reportedly grabbed a mounted ax off the mantel and smashed it on the ground. Melesky slung the ax over her shoulder and screamed at the man about the alleged unfaithfulness, he told Palm Beach County sheriff’s deputies. Melesky, 45, was arrested the evening of April 18 on charges of battery and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Her relationship with the man is redacted in the arrest report, as is the location of the incident. However, Melesky told authorities she lives west of Greenacres....

    FULL TITLE: Father of kidnapped Tennessee teen divorces her mother, accusing her of 'beating the girl and locking her in the basement' before the 15-year-old was 'snatched' by teacher The 15-year-old Tennessee girl who was allegedly kidnapped by her teacher for more than a month was vulnerable to predators because of the abuse she faced at her mother's hands, court documents say. Elizabeth Thomas was taken away by 'boyfriend' Tad Cummins, 50, on March 13, authorities say. The pair were found in an isolated hut in rural California, 2,500 miles away, on April 20. Now Elizabeth's father claims in divorce...

The Marine Corps veteran was involved in a fight after “a horn was sounded” in the line and Evan Schaffer,22, got out of his car and punched Lampkins, WTHR reports. Police say it's unclear who honked the horn.

  • The Costs of Southern Gun Culture(spewage alert!)

    It's difficult to do a comprehensive cost-benefit analysis of American gun culture. It fuels a multibillion-dollar industry employing around 142,000, and it kills more than 30,000 and injures an additional 70,000 annually. A new study by researchers at Stanford University tries to come to grips with one of the less frequently mentioned costs of gun culture -- the hospitalization expenses resulting from firearm injuries. The study tracked a total of 267,265 patients who were admitted to a hospital for firearm-related injuries from 2006 through 2014. Costs for initial inpatient hospitalization were about $730 million annually, or a total of $6.6...

    Donald Trump spent much of his election campaign raging against groups he doesn’t like; Muslims, the media, Mexicans and the rest. But there’s at least one group he’s a fan of. “I love the poorly educated!” the president-elect to be declared after pulling off a victory in the Nevada caucus of the Republican primary. Now, an analysis of his shock election victory shows the feeling was mutual. It was “education, not income,” that was the strongest predictor of a vote for Trump, according to the polling analyst Nate Silver.

    A couple of good old boys in Maryland decided they would let some of the Black Lives Matters protesters in Hagerstown, Maryland know what they think of their protests. So, one followed the other's truck, which was a diesel truck and they proceeded to spew black exhaust smoke across the entire group of protesters. Check out the video below, which was originally uploaded by Aaron Gettel and then reposted by a protest supporter, Lawrence Marley Hester. Fast forward to the 1:20 mark.

    HANCOCK COUNTY -- A family gathering to celebrate a child's birthday turned deadly Sunday when a fight between two brothers-in-law led to a fatal stabbing, officials said. Hancock County Sheriff's Investigator Glenn Grannan said that at 12:30 a.m., deputies found Kenneth Fanning, 29, suffering from multiple stab wounds in the front yard of a rental home on the 5000 block of U.S. 90. The suspect, Clinten Michael Dryer Sr., 32, injured his knee during the fight, Grannan said. He was treated at Memorial Hospital at Gulfport and was charged shortly before 8:30 p.m. Sunday with murder.

    Alaska Dispatch News ^ | Laurel Andrews|
    Prosecutors won't proceed with charges in a brawl that involved several members of the Palin family, Anchorage police said Thursday. The news comes as Anchorage police released reports Thursday morning outlining witness statements in the fight. Police were called to South Anchorage regarding a brawl involving about 20 people that had broken out at Korey Klingenmeyer's house on the evening of Sept. 6. The event was a birthday party for brothers Marc and Matthew McKenna and Klingenmeyer’s son. Five police officers wrote up police reports on the scene. More than 15 witnesses were interviewed, and the statements offer conflicting information...

    San Fransico-based T-shirt company Headline Shirts has taken full advantage of the Redskins name controversy by introducing a new line of shirts based on the team logo. But instead of a Native American, a redneck, complete with raccoon tail and mullet -- is prominently featured. (No idea if this violates trademark law, but if it does, and a judge does not overturn the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office's ruling canceling the Redskins' trademark registration, there's nothing the team would be able to do about it.)
  • Houston’s Lesbian Mayor Calls Phil Robertson a ‘Redneck Wing-Nut’

    The mayor of Houston, Texas, Annise Parker, is once again attacking  'Duck Dynasty' star Phil Robertson by calling him a “wingnut” and “completely irrelevant.” Mayor Parker is one of the few openly gay mayors in the country. Why Mayor Parker thinks anyone cares what her opinion is of the Louisiana TV star is another question, but Mayor Parker made the comments on Lone Star Q, a website that focuses on the gay scene in Texas. I have never watched ‘Duck Dynasty,’ so I don’t think about it much at all. I’ve been a gay community activist since the mid-70s. It...

    When a story hangs on like the one about Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson’s views on gays, it’s because the straight and narrow of the story is bigger than the people involved or the eye of ensuing storm . This story in particular has pulled back the curtain on the chasm between two segments of the American public: the Ducks and the Other Guys. On one side are the mighty Ducks. They’re down home people, basic, salt of the earth, grounded, physical, real people in a real world. They’re not necessarily right or left, red or blue. What distinguishes them from...
