I hope Trump is assassinated’: A Missouri lawmaker’s Facebook comment leads to calls for her resignation
A Missouri lawmaker started the day by making a comment on Facebook that would soon lead to calls for her resignation and even catch the attention of the Secret Service.
Two days after President Trump once again blamed “both sides” for violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Democratic state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal went on her personal Facebook page Thursday morning to vent.
“I put up a statement saying, ‘I really hate Trump. He’s causing trauma and nightmares.’ That was my original post,” she told the Kansas City Star.
The Facebook post received many responses, Chappelle-Nadal said, and to one she replied, “I hope Trump is assassinated!”
She would later explain that she didn't actually wish harm to come to Trump but wrote it out of frustration.
“I didn’t mean what I put up. Absolutely not,” Chappelle-Nadal told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “It was in response to the concerns that I am hearing from residents of St. Louis.”
“There are people who are afraid of white supremacists,” she added. “There are people who are having nightmares. There are people who are afraid of going out in the streets. It’s worse than even Ferguson.”
Though she quickly deleted the comment, an image of the statement would soon circulate online.
Much like when comedian Kathy Griffin released a video and photo of her holding a mask made in the image of Trump’s bloody severed head, a backlash soon came, much of it from other Democrats in the state.
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) released a statement condemning the remark and saying Chappelle-Nadal should resign.
Rep. William Lacy Clay (D-Mo.) said that, "[C]alling for the assassination of the President is a federal crime. … [She is] an embarrassment to our state,” according to the Post-Dispatch.
Calls for her resignation came from Republican Gov. Eric Greitens and Missouri's Democratic Party chairman, Stephen Webber, while a statement by Senate Minority Leader Gina Walsh said that, “There is too much rancor and hate in today’s political discourse, and Sen. Chappelle-Nadal should be ashamed of herself for adding her voice to this toxic environment.”
Carjacking suspect charged in Madison County
The Madison County Sheriff's Office charged a Florissant man after a Godfrey woman was carjacked at gunpoint in her garage. Police believe the crime could be connected to a similar carjacking.
Investigators said 18-year-old Toreyan Moore and a 17-year-old threatened to shoot the woman inside her garage Sunday night if she didn't surrender her car keys. Police are also checking to see if the pair did the same thing in June.
"A female was pulling her car into her garage. She exited her vehicle and was confronted by two black males armed with handguns. They forced her away from the vehicle. She did the right thing and complied," said Sheriff John Lakin.
Thursday afternoon, the Madison County State's Attorney's Office and the sheriff announced Moore had been charged with aggravated vehicular hijacking.
"This is a very alarming case where a person is returning to their home and is confronted by two armed suspects with guns pointed at her and her vehicle taken," Lakin said.
On Monday around 4:00 a.m., the Missouri State Highway Patrol recovered the victim’s vehicle after it was involved in a traffic accident near Interstate 55 and Reavis Barracks Road in south St. Louis. Police allege Moore and the other male reportedly fled from the vehicle after the crash.
Moore also faces charges in an unrelated robbery that occurred in Florissant hours before his arrest. No one was hurt in any of the carjackings or that robbery.
Woman caught snorting cocaine in parent pick-up line
The report states the school resource officer at Lexington Middle School spotted Christina Hester, 39, through a second-floor window chopping a white substance on her phone. The officer said he saw Hester use a straw to snort the cocaine.
"She's responsible for other people's lives and she's driving a car where my kids are walking and other kids. Just lack of responsibility," Lexington Middle School parent Katie Lindsay said.
"It's concerning. Especially the fact that she's out here and if she's the driver, you know to be out in the streets that way and in the proximity of a public school," added Glenn, another parent at the school who asked we not use his last name.
The officer asked Hester to go inside the school where she told him she had a few drugs in her car.
The report said the officer found 0.5 grams of cocaine in Hester's purse. She was booked on a drug possession charge.
At around 5 a.m. on Sunday morning, one man in Guangxi's Liuzhou city woke up on a public bench from an alcohol-induced slumber to find his pockets empty and his belt loosened.
The man, given the pseudonym A'Jun, immediately reported the incident to police who began their investigation by checking out nearby surveillance cameras, local media reports.
Police watched carefully as A'Jun wandered into the frame at around 2 a.m. that morning and promptly passed out on an extremely uncomfortable-looking bench. Over the next few hours, a few people passed by, but at around 4:30 a.m., a suspicious man approached A'Jun. After making sure that there was no one else around, he began to touch A'Jun's crotch and soon went to work.
At one point, a smartphone appears to fall from A'Jun's pocket and the man stops what he's doing to retrieve it before returning to pick up where he left off. This encounter reportedly lasted four or five minutes. At the end, the man reaches over to take A'Jun's wallet out of his pocket before leaving the scene.
McDonald's drive-thru passenger pulls out replica AR-15 rifle after ice cream dispute
A Delray Beach man wasn't happy that a nearby McDonald's didn't have any ice cream, so he pulled out a replica AR-15 rifle while he waited in the drive-thru line, police said.
Jerry Henry was arrested Monday after the incident at the McDonald's on Linton Boulevard.
Delray Beach police said Henry was a passenger in a car at the drive-thru when the driver, who was ordering food at the intercom, became upset with the employee who was taking his order.
According to a probable cause affidavit, the driver, identified as Michael Delhomme, was upset because the ice cream machine wasn't working.
The employee told police that he watched from the store's surveillance video as Henry got out of the front passenger seat and went into the trunk to remove what appeared to be a rifle. The employee told his co-workers, and they went into the bathroom to hide and call 911.
Police said surveillance video confirmed employees' accounts of what happened.
According to the report, Henry admitted that Delhomme asked him to get the "stick" from the trunk after the dispute about the ice cream. Henry said he put the gun between his legs in the front seat.
Henry was arrested on a charge of improper exhibition of a firearm.
Here's Why Whiskey Tastes Better with Water, and It's Not What You're Thinking
Researchers in Sweden think they've figured out why some whiskeys taste better with a little water mixed in. And it's not because it dilutes it. It's because of a compound called guaiacol that gives them that smoky flavor. (It's pronounced GWHY-uh-call.)
Water and whiskey don't really mix on a molecular level. So they used computer models to see how the molecules interact. And when you add water, it pushes the guaiacol to the TOP of the glass. So you get more flavor in each sip.
They haven't figured out exactly how much water to add. It depends on the type of whiskey, and also just personal preference. But they do say to err on the side of caution, because too much water could dilute it and kill the flavor.
