Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooter Robert Bowers Said “All Jews Need to Die” Before Opening Fire at Tree of Life Congregation

A 48-year-old man named Robert Bowers has been identified as the lone gunman who opened fire at a Pittsburgh synagogue in the city’s Squirrel Hill neighborhood Saturday morning (Oct. 27).

There were reportedly close to 100 people inside the Tree of Life Congregation Synagogue during a prayer service at the time of the shooting.

As many as 12 people were shot at the scene, including three police officers. Of the 12 shot, at least 8 are confirmed dead.

Bowers, a resident of Pittsburgh, allegedly yelled “all these Jews need to die” during the attack.

Before entering the synagogue, Bowers wrote on the social media site Gab, “HIAS likes to bring invaders in that kill our people. I can’t sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics. I’m going in.” (FYI: HIAS is the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society.)

According to the Associated Press, the shooting took place during a baby naming ceremony.

Mugshot Madness: Father & Daughter Arrested for Incest After Their Baby Died

A father and daughter pair from South Carolina were both arrested on charges of incest after the woman gave birth to a child by her own father that later died.

The Laurens County Sheriff’s Office says 20-year-old Katlyn Lauren Edwards and her 38-year-old father James Travis Brown were engaged in an unnatural sexual relationship, which resulted in Edwards being impregnated by Brown and the eventual birth of a child.

After the baby boy died at a medical facility in Charleston, Edwards was arrested and charged with incest.

Brown, who is already in jail in another county on unrelated charges, will reportedly be transferred to the Johnson Detention Center in Laurens County after he’s released to face his own incest charges.

The infant’s cause of death was heart failure, likely due to complications related to what authorities said was a “consensual and mutual relationship.”

Michael Polson, an investigator with the Laurens County Sheriff’s Office, said that Edwards “left her husband to be with [her father].”

Polson added that Edwards accused her father of sexually abusing her, but said there was “no evidence of that,” and she even at one point said their sexual relationship was consensual.

Polson told People: “All evidence points to the relationship. It doesn’t point to abuse. And then she’s admitted it was consensual.” Polson said Brown also “admitted [the sexual relationship]” and said he felt that his daughter was in love with him.

Investigators said they found evidence to support the claims of a mutual sexual relationship.

More from People:

Polson says that during Edwards’ childhood, her father was “in and out of her life.” He adds the two “have a troubled past, but she was 20 years old when she decided to do all this. She wasn’t a child.” Polson would not elaborate further on what he meant by “troubled past.”

In October 2017, Polson says, Edwards “left her husband. She moved in with her father and then they got pregnant together in January 2018. They continued communicating until July, and then it ended. She started seeing another guy.”

“She wanted [Brown] to stop and be her daddy,” Polson says. “She wanted [Brown] to be a father figure to her.” According to Polson, the sheriff’s office has handled incest cases before, but this one is unique. “It’s usually a victim saying a family member close to them forced sex on them. It’s rare to have one to say, ‘We had consensual sex and we got pregnant,’” Polson says.

Polson says the baby’s death certificate says he died from heart failure. After speaking with doctors, investigators believe the circumstances of the child’s birth were related to his death. “Anytime in an incest situation, sometimes the inside of the body doesn’t work right,” Polson says, citing doctors.

“It is beyond my comprehension how this could take place between a father and daughter. At this time, I can’t confirm the baby died from complications related to incest, however we wonder if that’s the case,” said Laurens County Sheriff Don Reynolds. “We are working with medical professionals and the Solicitors Office regarding that aspect of the investigation and will update everyone if there are any additional charges.”

White Teacher Investigated for Wearing Blackface to Halloween Party

I feel like in the year 2018 (hell, it’s almost 2019), the following statement should just go without saying, and every single person should have it ingrained into their subconscious: doing blackface isn’t cool. Like, stop. Just stop.

Well, apparently that lesson hasn’t fully sunk in for some people, because an Iowa teacher is currently under investigation after she attended a Halloween party rocking blackface. And that lady is Megan Luloff, a first-grade teacher at Walcott Elementary in Walcott, Iowa.

According to reports, Luloff (who is now being referred to as Megan the Minstrel) showed up to the Walcott American Legion’s “Boos Bash” rocking an outfit that was supposed to be Lafawnduh, a black character from the movie Napoleon Dynamite.

What’s even worse is it was a group costume with a handful of her friends also dressing as characters from the movie, and not a single one of them took a moment to stop and say, “Hey, maybe this isn’t cool, Megan.”

Instead, they all nodded and went along with it, and now look where we are.

“It’s sad,” said Vera Kelly, president of the MetroCom NAACP Unit 4019, Davenport. “It takes me back to when I was a little girl. You would think people wouldn’t have that type of mindset now.”

Because of the incident, Luloff is under investigation and her picture has been removed from the school’s website. What makes this whole thing even worse, though, is that the school she teaches at is currently under strict supervision by the state of Iowa for discriminating against minority students.

This is because the district reportedly placed a disproportionate number of non-white students in special education classes and disciplined minority students more frequently and handed out harsher punishments than it did to white students.

Linda Hayes, the woman responsible for overseeing the solution to this issue, said, “I cannot clearly articulate how offensive and appalling it is to people of color. In light of our recent developments within the district, this was in very poor taste, not to mention totally out of line with regard to professionalism.”

The district itself has also issued a statement, reading, “The district was very recently made aware of these images of a district employee at a non-school related event, and an internal investigation is currently ongoing…This situation is not taken lightly by any member of the board. The district will determine how to best address the matter after further investigation.”

You know who hasn’t made a statement? Megan the Minstrel. What a shocker, right?

All I know is that she now joins the likes of other dumb white people not understanding race relations in America today. We’ve got Golf Cart Gail, Cornerstore Caroline, Hallway Hillary, BBQ Becky, and Permit Patty.

Who are you taking in your starting five?

Tekashi 6ix9ine Gets Probation Instead of Jail Time in Child Sex Case

Tekashi 6ix9ine scored a MAJOR victory in court Friday (Oct. 26) after a judge gave him four years probation (as his attorneys requested) instead of sending him to jail for his child sex case.

CBS News reports:

Judge Felicia A. Mennin handed down the sentence Friday, ordering Hernandez to refrain contact with gang members and must not be arrested during the probationary period. If he is found in violation of the plea agreement, he could face 1 to 4 years in prison.

In May 2015, Hernandez was arrested after video surfaced of him engaging in sexual acts with a girl at a party in Harlem. He was 18 years old at the time.

That October, he pleaded guilty to one count of using a child in a sexual performance. He took a plea agreement that required him to obtain his GED and complete mental health treatment for 2 years.

The agreement also prohibits Hernandez from posting any sexually explicit images of women or children and any images of violence against women or children to his social media accounts.

According to TMZ, when Judge Mennin gave Tekashi his sentence, the courtroom—which was filled with the rapper’s entourage—”erupted in cheers.”

Immediately following his sentencing, Tekashi spoke to the judge directly and “embraced his government name,” TMZ reported, saying that he’s Daniel Hernandez and not his rap persona Tekashi 69.

The rapper said: “I have millions of youth that look at me as a role model and the last place I want to be is incarcerated, they don’t deserve it. Thank you.”

The judge reportedly gave Tekashi credit for one year, so he only has three years of probation left and will not have to serve the full four years. Among the conditions of his probation, he was ordered to perform at least 1,000 hours of community service, not associate himself with any gang members and refrain from participating in any gang activity.

Tekashi nearly lost his freedom after he violated the conditions of an agreement he had with the judge to not get into any legal trouble.

The rapper previously wrote a letter to the judge claiming that his two arrests for assaulting an officer in Brooklyn and attacking a fan at a mall in Houston didn’t constitute a violation of his plea deal.

Tekashi’s attorney, Lance Lazzaro, even argued on his behalf that both arrests occurred long after the October 2017 deadline on his plea deal and he should only get four years probation and be ordered to participate in a youthful offenders program. Prosecutors recommended he get 1 to 3 years prison time, but the judge ultimately gave him probation.

A rep for Tekashi, err, we mean DANIEL, told TMZ that he “understands what he must now do moving forward and we will be with him every step of the way. We also want to thank the judge for being very fair and impartial.”

Christina Milian Allegedly Involved in Bar Brawl, Accused of Throwing Drink at Bouncer

Christina Milian somehow found herself involved in an altercation with a bouncer at a bar at a hotel in downtown Los Angeles Tuesday night (Oct. 23).

The whole thing was reportedly sparked after the bouncer blocked Christina and a friend from entering the hotel bar, and things got so heated at one point during the “brawl” that the singer/actress threw a drink at the bouncer. YIKES.

According to TMZ:

Christina and a group of women, including “WAGs” star Nicole Williams, hit up the Figueroa Hotel in downtown L.A. Tuesday night after attending the Bruno Mars concert. Witnesses tell us they were trying to get to the bar off the lobby, but the bouncer threw up a partial stop sign because it was after last call.

What’s odd is, we’re told he let in Nicole and few others before fully blocking the singer/actress and one other friend. One witness claims one of the friends who was inside reached to open a gate, Christina threw a drink at the bouncer, and then things got outta hand. We’re told he tried to grab Christina, but 2 guys stepped in and the fight started.

Christina’s camp tells us a different story — that the hotel manager told the group they could enter the bar, and when the bouncer started getting aggressive … Nicole left to go find that manager. They deny Christina threw anything, and claim the bouncer actually struck one of her friends during the standoff.

When it was clear he wasn’t budging they called an Uber and left. Christina’s people say the bouncer actually followed them down the street as they walked to meet their ride.

As for the fight — Christina’s peeps say the guys involved were not with her. Law enforcement sources tell us LAPD responded, but no word if anyone filed a report.

A rep for the Figueroa says the fight “was unfortunate and was diffused by hotel staff and security to the very best of their ability.”

Well damn. Lemme found out Christina a whole goon outchea!

Why Does Justin Bieber Think It’s OK to Eat a Burrito Like This?!

Does Justin Bieber know how to eat a burrito? Apparently, the f**k not. Because this is definitely NOT how you’re supposed to consume a burrito:

Just look at this. You see how he’s biting from the middle? THIS IS NOT HOW YOU EAT A BURRITO, SIR.

Things you bite from the middle: hamburgers & sandwiches, pizza slices, cookies, chicken, waffles & pancakes, donuts. It’s even OK to bite a kabob from the middle.

But you do NOT, and I repeat, YOU DO not, take a bite out of a burrito from the middle. Unless you’re some sort of monster or something.

Justin, is there anything you would like to tell us?

Suspected Mail Bomber Cesar Sayoc Once Called Donald Trump the “Greatest Commander in Chief”

A South Florida man was arrested Friday morning (Oct. 26) in connection to the string of mail bombs sent to prominent Democrats this week. That man is 56-year-old Cesar Sayoc, Jr. of Aventura, Florida. And the details that have emerged since his arrest are just as crazy as you’d imagine.

So what’s the first thing we learned? Well, unsurprisingly (considering he was targeting democratic politicians and CNN in his mail bombs), Sayoc was an avid supporter of President Donald Trump, even claiming that Trump is the “Greatest Commander Chief.”

His social media profiles were littered with pro-Trump and anti-Democrat posts and pictures, and he was apparently very excited about the upcoming “red wave” that he believed would take place in the upcoming midterm elections. Here’s just a few from his now-deleted profiles.

He was very happy to celebrate Trump’s birthday, apparently.

And here he is at what Trump claimed was the biggest-ever presidential inauguration.

And here he is proudly sporting the now-famous red “Make America Great Again” ball caps.

Again, none of this is entirely surprising. If someone is intentionally targeting left-leaning people and organizations, it wouldn’t be a leap to think that he also supports Donald Trump. So what else have we learned?

Sayoc was also the owner of a very creepy white van (is there really any other kind of white van besides creepy, though?) and might have lived in it at one time. The van (pictured below) is plastered with pro-Trump, anti-CNN, and “conspiratorial” stickers.

After seeing the van being towed on TV, a local Floridian, David Cypkin, realized he recognized the van, telling The New York Times he often saw that van parked at a local strip mall.

“It struck me because of the crazy conspiratorial stickers covering the windows,” Cypkin said. “It was unsettling, and also it seemed to be occupied. Sometimes the door would be ajar or a window would be open, which indicated to me that maybe somebody was living in the van.”

Now, again, creepy guy sending off bombs in the mail potentially living in a creepy white van? Not the hardest thing to believe. So what else do you got, Sayoc?

Well, according to his Twitter profile, Sayoc was a former professional soccer player, wrestler, and cage fighter.

A former associate of his, Justin Humberger, also said that he had been told Sayoc played college soccer. Now while I couldn’t find any proof that Sayoc played either professional or college soccer, the fighting part, well, I might believe that. I mean the dude’s got some guns for arms, so it could be true.

So what is the ultimately weirdest thing that has come out about Sayoc? Well, apparently he was the manager of a traveling “male revue show” that was described as being in the style of “Magic Mike.”

That’s right, this former soccer player/wrestler/cage fighter who may have been living in his van while sending out homemade pipe bombs through the mail was also managing male strip shows.

But, like many of us, Sayoc wasn’t truly loving his current career and was considering a new business venture. His next great idea? Fish farms. According to Humberger, Sayoc had opened a bank account for the new business before being arrested Friday morning.

And finally, the least surprising detail to emerge. As in most of these type of cases (bombings, shootings, murders), Mr. Humberger also said that Sayoc was “always sweet and a nice guy in general.”
