Feisty grandmother fights off ‘grim reaper rapist’ by beating him unconscious with a beer stein and crow bar stashed beneath her bed
A grandmother fought off an attempted rapist who called himself the ‘grim reaper’ by beating him unconscious with a beer stein and crow bar.
Angela Ferguson, 58, was asleep in her home in the Near West Side of Chicago, Illinois, when her 30-year-old neighbor Dorval Grice allegedly crept in to her bedroom to attack her on Monday at 6.30am.
She claimed he lunged himself on top of her, tore her underwear off and demanded sex, all the while shouting: ‘Don’t look at me b****, I’m the grim reaper’.
Ferguson beat him with a beer stein and later used a crowbar to knock him unconscious before police arrived at the scene.

A Chicago police officer who was savagely beaten at a car accident scene this week did not draw her gun on her attacker — even though she feared for her life — because she was afraid of the media attention that would come if she shot him, the city’s police chief said Thursday.
Chicago Police Department Superintendent Eddie Johnson said the officer, a 17-year veteran of the force, knew she should shoot the attacker but hesitated because “she didn’t want her family or the department to go through the scrutiny the next day on the national news,” the Chicago Tribune reported.
Johnson’s remarks, which came at an awards ceremony for police and firefighters, underscore a point law enforcement officers and some political leaders have pressed repeatedly as crime has risen in Chicago and other major cities: that police are reluctant to use force or act aggressively because they worry about negative media attention that will follow.
According to Johnson, the 43-year-old officer, who has not been identified, was responding to a car crash Wednesday when a 28-year-old man who was involved in the accident struck her in the face, then repeatedly smashed her head against the pavement until she passed out. He said the attack went on for several minutes and that two others officers were injured as they tried to pull the suspect away, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. The suspect was on PCP, he said, and was finally subdued after officers Tasered and pepper sprayed him.
Northampton Clown Terrorizes English Town Just By Standing Around (PHOTOS)

It doesn’t speak. It doesn’t juggle. It has balloons but doesn’t hand them out. It probably doesn’t even sleep. It just stands there, haunting our dreams with that sinister smile.
An anonymous man has been striking fear into the hearts of the Northampton, U.K., community by ominously standing around in creepy clown apparel.
The Northampton Herald & Post first reported the sightings earlier this month. The clown has allegedly been spotted all over town, and sometimes is seen carrying a clown teddy.

Four robbers who plotted to mug a pizza boy after ordering a delivery to an unoccupied house found their plans coming undone when a 250lb former linebacker turned up with the pie.
Napoleon Harris III, the six-foot-three-inch Illinois Senator and former Minnesota Vikings linebacker, was in a Chicago Beggars Pizza franchise he owns when a call came in at the last minute on September 6.
He decided to run the pizza in himself – and ended up serving up some rough justice instead, CBS 2 reported.
Harris had offered to deliver the pizza because his crew was ‘overwhelmed’ – and as the robbers were about to learn, Harris is a tough guy to overwhelm.
He arrived at the house, on the 15800 block of Paulina Avenue in Harvey around three miles his pizza parlor, to find one of the robbers on the porch.
As Harris entered the property, though, three others sprang from the bushes in the front yard and attempted to overwhelm him. They failed. Dramatically.
Police: ‘Sheer brutality’ as 3 officers slain in Baton Rouge ambush
The chaotic shootout between Baton Rouge officers and a lone gunman ranged around a series of commercial buildings before a SWAT officer killed the suspect with a 100-yard shot, police said Monday.
The gunman, Gavin Eugene Long, 29, of Kansas City, Mo., had an IWA Tavor SAR 5.56-caliber rifle and Springfield 9.9mm pistol with him during the shootout Sunday morning, according to Col. Michael Edmonson, superintendent of state police. Another Stag Arms M4 Variant 5.56-caliber semi-automatic rifle was at his rented Chevrolet Malibu car, Edmonson said.
The guns are being analyzed for the chain of ownership, he said.
By watching videos from the area around a car wash and convenience store where the shooting occurred, police said Long ignored civilians and shot only at police, Edmonson said.

McDonald’s lays off 70 American accountants from Ohio and gives their jobs to foreign workers as part of cost-cutting exercise
21 Sept 2016
McDonald’s has laid off 70 native-born employees from Ohio and filled their positions with contracted workers who entered the country on H-1B visas.
A spokesperson for McDonald’s told Breitbart that the company decided to lay off the 70 Americans in order to save costs.
What is most striking about the news, is that the fast food chain is outsourcing jobs that are considered ‘mainstream white-collar positions’ like accounting.
The significance of this development is that American companies are increasingly turning to cheaper labor from foreign countries in order to man positions in all corners of the economy, and not just hi-tech and software firms.
‘[This] is not just a Silicon Valley thing anymore, it is happening all over’ the US, Steve Camarota, head of research at the Center for Immigration Studies, told Breitbart.
There are now over 800,000 ‘guest workers’ in the US who have been hired to do ‘white-collar temporary jobs.’ Of them, 650,000 are here on an H-1B multi-year visa.
GOP nominee Donald Trump (right) has said he would ban the H-1B visa program, while Hillary Clinton (left) backs green cards to foreigners who graduate in the US with STEM degrees
‘To deliver $500 million in savings, the vast majority by the end of 2017, we are restructuring many aspects of our business, including an accounting function,’ the spokesperson, Terri Hickey, said.
Obama Kept His Promise, 83,000 Coal Jobs Lost And 400 Mines Shuttered
By Andrew Follett | 5 Sept 2016
This Labor Day, America has 83,000 fewer coal jobs and 400 coal mines than it did when Barack Obama was elected in 2008, showing that the president has followed through on his pledge to “bankrupt” the coal industry.
A 2015 study found the coal industry lost 50,000 jobs from 2008 to 2012 during Obama’s first term. During Obama’s second term, the industry employment in coal mining has fallen by another 33,300 jobs, 10,900 of which occurred in the last year alone, according to federal data. Currently, coal mining employs 69,460 Americans, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Much of the blame for the job losses is targeted at federal regulations aimed at preventing global warming, which caused coal power plants to go bankrupt, resulting in a sharp decline in the price of coal.

Man Calls Out Black Lives Matter For Not Helping La. Flood Victims
Jerry L. Washington, a Baton Rouge native, posted a video to Facebook, asking why activists haven’t done anything to help the majority African-American city.
“Where are the Black Lives Matter and the Black Panthers?” Washington says in the video. “Because I ain’t seen one Black Panther boat or one Black Lives Matter boat. All I see is our own people from our own city saving us.”
