Five men have been arrested after a months-long sting operation, charged with plotting to blow up a bridge in the Cleveland area, the FBI announced Tuesday. The group had been involved in a series of escalating plots that ended with their arrest last night by FBI agents. The sting operation supplied men, some of whom were alleged to be anarchists, with what they thought were explosives and bomb-making materials. At no time during the case was the public in danger, the FBI said. Douglas L. Wright, 26; Brandon L. Baxter, 20; and Anthony Hayne, 35, were arrested by members of the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force Monday night on charges of conspiracy and attempted use of explosive materials to damage physical property affecting interstate commerce. Also arrested were Connor C. Stevens, 20, and Joshua S. Stafford, 23. The criminal complaint was filed this morning in U.S. District Court in Cleveland…..FAIL!
Elected officials are demanding answers after Daniel Chong, a 23-year-old UC San Diego student, was left unattended for five days in a Drug Enforcement Administration detention cell. Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) called on U.S. Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. asking for an “immediate and thorough” Department of Justice investigation into the matter. “After the investigation is completed, I ask that you please provide me with the results and the actions the department will take to make sure those responsible are held accountable and that no one in DEA custody will ever again be forced to endure such treatment,” she wrote. The DEA apologized Wednesday to Chong, who was accidentally left unattended in a holding cell for five days and reportedly drank his own urine to survive.
Two 13-year-old girls got more than just tan-lines when they decided to sunbathe on a rural road. The unfortunate accident took place in Economy, PA, when a 19-year-old man in a vehicle didn’t see the girls lying on the road and ran over them. To make things even more unfortunate – the guy behind the wheel was someone the girls knew. The teen girls were suntanning when they fell asleep. The driver stopped at a corner, but ran over the girls when he took the turn and didn’t notice the girls on the ground. Needless to say, a scream alerted him of their presence. Things got worse when he realized one of the girls on the road was his cousin. The ambulance were called, and the girls were then airlifted to a Pittsburgh hospital where they, fortunately, are out of life-threatening danger, so we can point and laugh at them without feeling bad. FAIL!
In the former Soviet rebulic of Kyrgyzstan just south of Kazakhstan….the eternal flame honoring war dead was extinguished this week because the government hadn’t paid their gas bill!
A 73-year-old Hunterdon County man was critically injured this morning when an anti-aircraft shell exploded as he was trying to create what enthusiasts refer to as trench art, authorities say. John Grimm III is listed in critical condition tonight at Capital Health Regional Medical Center in Trenton, a nursing supervisor said. Grimm was flown there after the 20-millimeter shell exploded shortly after 11 o’clock. FAIL.
After viewing the controversial breatharianism documentary where an Indian yogi alleges to have lived 70 years without food or water, a Swiss woman went on a diet of nothing but sunlight. It didn’t work out too well, because she died. The unnamed woman went an entire week without eating or drinking anything, consuming nothing more than sunlight and air. She paused after a few weeks for her kids, but soon went right back to her plan. Everybody loves the sunshine, but nobody should love it to death.
