  6. A 3-day-old and 2 other infants were stabbed at a New York day care center, police say A newborn and two infants were among five people stabbed early Friday at an unlicensed day care center in New York by an employee who then tried to kill herself, officials said. The victims -- two girls and a boy, plus two adults -- were in critical but stable condition Friday at local hospitals, New York police said. The babies range in age from 3 days to 1 month, New York police Assistant Chief Juanita Holmes told reporters Friday. Nine babies, along with some of their parents, had been in the center during the attack, she said. "There was one child with more serious injuries than the other two," Holmes said. "At one point, we thought she might have been likely (to die), but, thank God, she was upgraded." The father of one injured child and a woman who works at the Queens day care were also attacked, according to police. The man was stabbed in the leg, and the woman was stabbed repeatedly in the torso, Holmes said. The suspect, a 52-year-old woman employed at the center, was taken to a hospital after slashing her wrist, police said. She is in custody. Two knives were recovered, police said. The motive in the 3:45 a.m. attack was unclear, police spokesman Lt. Thomas Antonetti said. The red brick, multifamily house on a tree-lined street in the Flushing area of Queens appeared to be used as a day care center, though state officials said it was not licensed. "We have seen some paperwork indicating that it is a day care," Holmes said, adding the documents "indicated that they were a nursery." Part of building served as "living quarters," she said. But the site is not listed as the location of a licensed or regulated child care program with the New York State Office of Children and Family Services, agency spokeswoman Monica Mahaffey said in a statement. "OCFS is saddened by this horrific situation and investigating it as a possible illegal operation," she said. State-regulated child care programs are prohibited from caring for infants younger than than 6 weeks old unless they receive prior approval from OCFS, the statement said. "Any request must include physician medical approval and detail the extenuating circumstances necessitating such a request," the statement said. The city's Buildings Department had received several complaints against the property, including the possibility that it was being illegally used as a hotel, records show. Department inspectors were unable to gain access to the home on several occasions. The city had received a complaint in 2011 of "screaming children" at the residence, Holmes said, noting that the call came to a city hotline. Of the children present during Friday's assault, five were girls and four were boys, she said.

    THE STRUTS - COULD HAVE BEEN ME
  8. A stunningly strict list of alleged “rules and regulations” for one couple’s nuptials has gone viral on Reddit, leaving many wondering why anyone would want to attend such a humorless event. On Sept. 20, Redditor Laika_cat posted the image of an email allegedly sent by the “wedding coordinator” of the upcoming ceremony, which included stipulations such as “kindly refrain from upstaging the bride on her big day — oh, and no admission without a gift of $75 or more.” The post has since earned over 10,000 points on Reddit and sparked 1,160 heated comments, many critical of the rules that were outlined in the message. “Please arrive 15-30 minutes early. Please DO NOT wear white, cream, or ivory. Please do not wear anything other than a basic bob or ponytail. Please do not [have] a full face of makeup,” the list begins. “Do not record during the ceremony. Do not check in on [Facebook] until instructed. Use #[Wedding hashtag] when posting all pictures.” “DO NOT TALK TO THE BRIDE AT ALL,” it continues. “Everyone will toast with Rémy. No acceptance. Lastly must come with gift $75 or more or you won’t be admitted,” the list concludes. Naturally, Redditors had a field day roasting the pretentious demands, which many suspected to be sourced from the bride herself. “Who toasts at a wedding with hard liquor?” one wondered. “I'd love for all guests to all show up naked with ponytails. That would be beautiful,” another said. “Bring 7,350 pennies,” one cheeky commenter said. “What an excellent list of reasons to not go,” another added. Despite the backlash, the origins of the now-viral email — and the veracity of the alleged brides requests — remains unclear. Though the summer wedding season is officially winding down, this is the second time a bridezilla has made headlines for merciless demands in recent weeks. In late August, one irate woman caused a stir on social media for her long-winded tirade blaming her friends and family for the cancellation of her dream wedding — namely because they wouldn't pitch in to pay for the majority of the $60,000 cost.
  9. President Trump on Friday went on the offensive in the battle over Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation after days of laying low, calling on accuser Christine Blasey Ford to provide a police report, slamming Democrats for waiting to share the allegations and telling senators to move ahead with a vote. In a sharp change of tone after days of reserved statements regarding the allegations, the president unleashed a torrent of tweets, first in defense of Kavanaugh. He then put pressure on Ford to furnish a police report, though there's no indication one was ever filed. "I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents. I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place!" he tweeted. Twitter Ads info and privacy He also tweeted: “Judge Brett Kavanaugh is a fine man, with an impeccable reputation, who is under assault by radical left wing politicians who don’t want to know the answers, they just want to destroy and delay. Facts don’t matter. I go through this with them every single day in D.C.” Twitter Ads info and privacy The president was also critical of Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., for receiving a letter from Ford outlining her allegations in July, but failing to disclose them, even anonymously, to federal officials or other committee members until last week. "Senator Feinstein and the Democrats held the letter for months, only to release it with a bang after the hearings were OVER - done very purposefully to Obstruct & Resist & Delay," Trump tweeted Friday. "Let her testify, or not, and TAKE THE VOTE!" Twitter Ads info and privacy Trump also took issue with Ford’s legal team saying they want the FBI to investigate the allegations – something the bureau has indicated it has no plans to do. "The radical left lawyers want the FBI to get involved NOW," Trump tweeted. "Why didn’t someone call the FBI 36 years ago?" Twitter Ads info and privacy The statements come as the deadline passed for Ford to tell the Senate Judiciary Committee whether she will accept an invitation to testify about her claims on Monday. It's unclear if a deal was made, but talks could still be ongoing, as Ford's lawyers re-opened discussions Thursday with Republicans over scheduling testimony. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley had called on Ford to respond by 10 a.m. Friday. With the deadline passed, Fox News has learned Grassley is speaking with committee members and key other players about what they’re willing to do. Ford, through her attorneys, has given differing statements about whether she is willing to testify. Earlier this week, Ford’s attorney Debra Katz indicated her client was willing to do so, before later saying they wanted the FBI to investigate the claims first. According to a Thursday email sent by her attorney Debra Katz to the committee, Ford is willing to appear for a hearing on Capitol Hill as long as senators provide "terms that are fair and which ensure her safety." But they do not want Ford to testify on Monday. Among the terms being requested by Ford’s legal team: Only members of the committee -- no lawyers -- can question her; Kavanaugh cannot be in the room at the time; and Kavanaugh should be questioned first, before he has the opportunity to hear Ford's testimony. It’s not clear if Republicans would agree to those terms, especially over Kavanaugh having to testify before he hears the accusations against him. Trump has called for Ford to testify, and on Thursday night said he wants to see the confirmation process proceed without delay. Speaking to Fox News' Sean Hannity on Thursday night before a rally in Nevada, Trump called Kavanaugh "an outstanding person" and said, "I don't think you can delay it any longer." For his part, Kavanaugh, in a letter to the Judiciary Committee on Thursday, indicated he would be ready and willing to testify on Monday. "I continue to want a hearing as soon as possible, so that I can clear my name," he wrote. "Since the moment I first heard this allegation, I have categorically and unequivocally denied it. I remain committed to defending my integrity." Kavanaugh's letter did not contain any preconditions for his testimony. Fox News has learned that Kavanaugh, under oath, answered questions from the Judiciary Committee earlier this week, and denied the allegations. In a series of tweets earlier Thursday, Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee noted they had obtained statements, under penalty of felony, from two other people at the house party where the alleged assault occurred, including Kavanaugh friend Mark Judge and another individual. Committee members also wrote that they had reached out to a "fourth person allegedly at the party," as well as "a schoolmate who claimed on social media this week to have info related to Dr. Ford’s allegations" -- but had not heard back. That was an apparent reference to a widely circulated online account by Cristina Miranda King, who claimed that she heard about the alleged assault at the time. King deleted her online post after questions emerged about apparent inconsistencies in her claims. On Thursday, Ford's lawyers reportedly requested that the Judiciary Committee subpoena Judge to testify. Earlier this week, Judge told committee Republicans that he had "no memory" of the alleged incident, and said he did not want to testify. Asked whether Republicans had planned to call Judge to testify, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told reporters, “No reason to. ... He’s already said what he’s going to say." It would be highly unusual for a witness before a Senate committee to dictate who receives a subpoena as a precondition to testifying. Meanwhile, a former classmate of Kavanaugh's said that he had no "recollection" of any incident at the house party Ford described, saying he was one of the people Ford had claimed to be there. Ford alleged in the letter that Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her more than 35 years ago, although she has since indicated that she cannot be sure in which house the assault occurred. Kavanaugh has denied all the accusations.
  10. So far prosecutors have identified 10 cases that involved misconduct in which incarcerated people’s sentences will need to be vacated, and 15 pending cases that have or will be dismissed. PANAMA CITY — Prosecutors are reviewing more than 250 criminal cases involving Jackson County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Zachary Wester after video emerged in the past month of him planting drugs in a vehicle during a traffic stop. Wester, 26, of Marianna, was fired Sept. 10 after more than two years as a patrol deputy with JCSO. His career now is under investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) after evidence arose that he had planted drugs during a February traffic stop in Marianna. As that investigation proceeds, the 14th Judicial Circuit State Attorney’s Office is reviewing more than 250 cases to determine Wester’s role and whether any misconduct took place. State Attorney Glenn Hess said his office so far has identified 263 cases in which Wester played a role, either as the lead officer, backup or an essential witness. Prosecutors said they have identified 10 cases that involved misconduct in which incarcerated people’s sentences will need to be vacated, and 15 pending cases that have or will be dismissed. When FDLE concludes its investigation at an undetermined date, authorities will decide whether to pursue criminal charges against Wester. “It’s speculation,” Hess said. “But if you’re accusing someone of planting drugs, they must have possessed drugs. And I don’t know of any provision in the law that authorizes a deputy to possess drugs outside of evidence they seize in the pursuit of an investigation.” Hess said FDLE came to his office days ago to brief him and senior prosecutors about an investigation into Wester. During that briefing, Hess said he viewed a video and photographs from a traffic stop that resulted in the arrest of a woman on narcotics possession charges. “The things I saw in the video caused me concern about his professionalism,” Hess said. “As a result of that, I made the decision not to accept any cases in which he was participating. We also undertook a review of all cases made in the past two years by that officer and have been taking steps to correct a situation that is unacceptable.” The video released Thursday by the SAO dates back to a traffic stop on Feb. 5 in Marianna, in which Teresa Odom was arrested after Wester said he found a baggie of methamphetamine in her vehicle. The entire traffic stop was recorded on Wester’s body camera and later aroused concern by the prosecution and defense attorney. They took the information to Jackson County Sheriff Lou Roberts, who began an internal investigation and called in FDLE to conduct an independent investigation. Roberts declined to comment on the case, as the FDLE investigation is ongoing. However, Wester has been fired after two years with JCSO. Before then, he worked as a Liberty County Sheriff’s Office deputy from August 2015 until he joined JCSO. On Tuesday, prosecutors asked Circuit Judge Christopher Patterson in open court to vacate the sentence of Odom, the woman whose drug possession arrest was caught on body camera video. Patterson agreed. According to court records, Odom was on pretrial release from an earlier stolen property charge when Wester arrested her on Feb. 15. The new arrest prompted a judge to revoke her bail, which kept her behind bars for more than a month until the resolution of the drug case. She pleaded no contest to the drug charges brought by Wester on March 6 and was sentenced to four years of probation. It wasn’t immediately clear how many other defendants might be in jail or prison as a result of alleged misconduct by Wester. Hess said he has an attorney working full time to review cases brought by Wester and expects more charges to be dismissed because of misconduct. “Cases that are good cases and are viable, that do not involve any questionable conduct, go forward in the court system,” he said. “Those that are questionable, the benefit of the doubt goes to the defendant.” Hess said the scope of misconduct involved in this case is unprecedented in the circuit and possibly across Florida. A motive behind the evidence tampering has yet to be established and there did not appear to be any common themes among the cases. Hess said the activity undermines the trust instilled by the public in law enforcement and needed to be corrected as soon as possible. “We must see that the system maintains it’s integrity and that people have faith in the judicial system,” he added. “When we see something that is wrong we have to correct it, and this something we are trying to correct.”
  11. An Indiana man found guilty of molesting a 10-year-old girl multiple times, which led to her becoming pregnant, was sentenced Thursday to more than 100 years in prison. Nicholas Deon Thrash, 34, of Marion, was sentenced to 160 years in jail with a minimum service of 132 years, FOX59 Indianapolis reported, citing the Grant County prosecutor. View image on Twitter Twitter Ads info and privacy Thrash was found guilty of 10 counts of child molestation during his trial last month, the station reported. The victim, who was not named, testified Thrash had molested her at least 15 times. The girl’s grandmother told Indiana news station WISH-TV in May 2017, when Thrash was charged, that he was someone the family trusted. The girl’s mother also faces charges relating to the case, including neglect, aiding in child molesting and assisting a criminal, Marion-based newspaper the Chronicle-Tribunereported. The mother reportedly discovered the pregnancy as the victim was trying on dresses for a school dance, then instructed her to say a classmate impregnated her. Prosecutors told FOX59 that the girl, after turning 11, gave birth to a boy in September 2017. Thrash remained in the Grant County Jail as of Thursday.

  15. SpaceX will take a Japanese billionaire on a trip around the Moon SpaceX revealed Monday that Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa will be its first space tourist. Maezawa has chartered a flight aboard the company's Big Falcon Rocket, which is still being developed, for a slingshot trip around the Moon as soon as 2023. He's planning to take six to eight artists with him on the mission free of charge. "I want to share this experience and things with as many people as possible," Maezawa told a news conference. "So, I choose to go to the Moon with artists." The trip will take four or five days, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk said at the event. SpaceX made the announcement from its headquarters in Hawthorne, California — not far from where the Emmy awards were being handed out in Los Angeles on Monday evening. Maezawa is a rock musician, online fashion mogul and, more recently, a high-rolling art collector. A video presentation about him said he believes art can help usher in world peace. Yusaku Maezawa made his fortune through a website selling fashionable clothing. He wondered on stage what John Lennon, Coco Chanel, Michael Jackson or Andy Warhol would have created had they seen the Moon up close. Maezawa, whose net worth is estimated at $2.9 billion by Forbes, plans to work with the SpaceX team to select his fellow passengers. "If you hear from me, please say yes," the Japanese tycoon pleaded. He also encouraged Musk to join the mission. "As far as me going, I'm not sure," Musk responded. "Maybe we'll both be on it." Elon Musk announcing Yusaku Maezawa as the first private passenger on a trip around the moon on Monday. Future announcements about the project, which Maezawa is calling "#dearMoon," will be posted on a website and social media accounts under the same name. The Japanese billionaire has made a down payment for the mission, but the financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. "He puts his money where his mouth is," Musk said, describing the amount as "non-trivial." Maezawa made his fortune by building up Start Today, an e-commerce business that includes a popular online clothing site in Japan. He drew attention last year with the purchase of a Jean-Michel Basquiat painting for $110.5 million. Ambitious time frame Maezawa will fly on the Big Falcon Rocket, or BFR, a new spaceship system that SpaceX is building. It consists of a massive rocket booster that promises to out-power any that has ever been built and a towering spacecraft, nicknamed BFS for Big Falcon Spaceship, that will vault out of the Earth's atmosphere. SpaceX President Gwynne Shotwell said at a conference outside Washington earlier Monday that she hoped the spaceship would be making short test flights next year. An artist's renderning of SpaceX's Big Falcon Rocket. Shotwell also said the full rocket could reach orbit for the first time in 2020 and possibly deliver cargo to the Moon or Mars in 2022. "I know that sounds crazy, and we don't usually meet our time lines, but I wanted you to know at least order of magnitude, that's what we're thinking," Shotwell said. "And it sounds crazy but everything we've ever done has sounded crazy to people, both people that love us and people that don't like us so much." Musk cautioned at the news conference that SpaceX is not certain about the 2023 timing for the moon tourism mission. He said SpaceX has updated the design for the BFR rocket for the third time in three years. He showed off images of the hardware under construction and a test fire of the vehicle's massive Raptor engine. The latest blueprints mark the final major redesign of the rocket, whose development is expected to cost roughly $5 billion, according to Musk. Asked why the company made further changes, Musk said he "did not like the aesthetics" of the previous version. The new design, he added, "might be better," but "it's slightly riskier technically." Space station mission next year SpaceX has launched more than 60 missions to deliver cargo or satellites into orbit over the past eight years — all of them without humans on board. The tourism announcement comes as the company is racing to meet a tight deadline to start flying astronauts to and from the International Space Station aboard its workhorse Falcon 9 rocket and Crew Dragon spacecraft. The United States hasn't had the ability to put humans in orbit since the Space Shuttle era ended in 2011. Since then, NASA has relied on Russia to ferry astronauts to the space station. Shotwell said Monday that SpaceX is planning to conduct a test flight of a version of the Dragon capsule that can carry astronauts before the end of the year. It aims to launch its first crewed mission to the space station in the second quarter of 2019. When will 'everyday people' get to visit space? SpaceX has not talked much about putting private citizens in space since February 2017. That's when the company announced it would send two paying customers on a trip around the Moon in 2018 aboard a Falcon Heavy rocket, which became the most powerful operational rocket in the world after its maiden voyage earlier this year. Musk later reversed course, saying the company no longer has plans to certify the Falcon Heavy for human spaceflight. SpaceX has said it views space tourism as "an important step toward enabling access for everyday people who dream of traveling to space. Two of Musk's fellow billionaires — Amazon's (AMZN) Jeff Bezos and Virgin Group's Richard Branson — also want to make a business out of space tourism. Their ventures plan to conduct short suborbital trips during which passengers can briefly experience weightlessness and an expansive view of Earth. But it's not clear when space tourism might become available for "everyday people." Branson's Virgin Galactic has sold tickets for about $250,000, which is more than the median home price in the United States. Bezos' Blue Origin has been tight-lipped about the price of its tickets, but Reuters reported in July that they could cost in the $200,000 range. Blue Origin denied the report to CNN, saying ticket prices had not yet been set.

A witness said William Wolford, 66, was walking around the York Fair in Pennsylvania over the weekend with an approximately 8-foot-long dog-style leash attached to his wife’s neck, the York Daily Record reported, citing charging documents.

The 66-year-old told police that his wife, Catherine Wolford, suffered from advanced-stage dementia and that he decided to use a leash to keep track of her after she wandered off for more than an hour at the fair last year, FOX 43 of York, Pa., reported. Wolford said the leash was originally around her waist, but it somehow managed to move up to her neck, the Record reported citing documents. When his wife walked away, Wolford said the slack became tight and he “gently tugged on the leash so she would stop.'" He was charged with simple assault and released on $5,000 unsecured bail. Wolford is scheduled to appear in court Oct. 18, according to the paper. The couple's son vouched for his father, telling police he was not abusive, FOX 43 reported. Catherine Wolford received medical attention and was “very disoriented,” the paper reported, citing documents.

President Donald Trump The president then called out Democrats for delaying the vote, but said he is still confident Kavanaugh can be confirmed before the midterms. “We are looking to get this done as quickly as possible. He’s a truly outstanding person. As you know, he’s got an unblemished record. This is a terrible thing that took place and it’s frankly a terrible thing that this information wasn’t given to us a long time ago, months ago when they got it. They could have done that, instead of waiting till everything was finished and then all of a sudden spring it. But that’s what the Democrats do. That’s what they do, it’s obstruction, it’s resist, it’s whatever you have to do.” — President Donald Trump He later added he is “totally supportive” of the judge and reiterated he is an “outstanding man.”

  24. Teenagers all over the country are joining a movement to protest against having to stand up in front of their class to give a presentation. Why? Because public speaking can make them too ANXIOUS. The protest started when a 15-year-old high school student who goes by "Leen" on Twitter posted a tweet earlier this month that said, quote, "Stop forcing students to present in front of the class and give them a choice not to." Her tweet is now at over 500,000 combined retweets and likes, and has more than 138,000 comments . . . a ton of which are supporting what she's saying. But are these kids right? Should schools cut out mandatory public speaking because it's bad for some kids' mental health? Maybe it's not a question of right or wrong.

  26. There's a 47-year-old guy in San Antonio named Wesley Ryan who used to tool around town in a white 1993 Ford Mustang. And he loved that car more than pretty much anything, except his family. About 17 years ago, he decided to SELL it to pay off medical bills after his wife Laura was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. The good news is her treatments worked, and she's been cancer free for 13 years now. Which is all that really matters. But he always missed that car. So their two kids . . . who are now in their 20s . . . recently managed to track down the Mustang's new owner. And last month, they bought it BACK for him. There's a video of them surprising him with it. And as soon as he sees it, he starts crying. But he wasn't just emotional about the car. He told a local paper that doing what they did proves his kids are good people. And knowing he and his wife raised them right is the, quote, "strongest, most powerful feeling that a parent can have."

  28. A Florida man faces charges after he allegedly drove his 15-year-old son to a park with his teen girlfriend so they could have sex — or, in the dad’s words, “do their thang,” according to police. Laurence Mitchell, 53, was arrested earlier this month after an officer spotted him after-hours in his car at McChesney Park in Port St. Lucie, according to The Smoking Gun. The dad reportedly told the officer that his son requested he take him and his girlfriend to the local park “so they can do what kids do.” “Well, they aren’t out there stealing, they are just having sex,” Mitchell allegedly said to the cop, adding that “they could be out there doing worse.” Mitchell, however, allegedly admitted that he didn’t know if the girl’s parents consented to her being out. The police officer then interviewed the teen couple after they returned from the soccer field, the TCPalm reported. Mitchell’s son reportedly told the officer that he and his girlfriend were “just smokin’ and f–kin’.”
