-Lurid Crime Tales-
Former National Felon League star Antnie Brown goes on public tirade
[Blaze] Former NFL star wide receiver Antonio Brown broadcast a video on social media that shows him cursing out both his ex-girlfriend and the police officers who responded to the domestic dispute, while his young children were present.

Brown, 31, recorded a livestream video as Hollywood police escorted his ex-girlfriend and their children off the premises. He was accusing the woman, Chelsie Kyriss, of trying to steal his Bentley car after she came to pick up the children for school.

The receiver, who has flushed his professional football career down the drain over behavior issues and a sexual assault controversy, told police he evicted Kyriss and had filed a restraining order against her, only allowing her at the house to get clothes for the kids.

As Kyriss and the children are getting into the police car to leave, Brown berates both the officers and his ex, taking a brief moment to tell one of the children he loves him before resuming the profanity-laced tirade.

Cheerleading coach accused of sexually assaulting student in front of his own child
[NYPOST] A cheerleading and gymnastics coach in San Antonio was busted for allegedly sexually assaulting a teen student ‐ including once in front of his own child, according to reports.

Robert Thomas Kotara, 33, was arrested Friday and is facing charges of sexual assault of a minor, the San Antonio Express-News reports.

The alleged victim, now 18, told police Kotara first sexually assaulted her when she was 16 and the attacks then became a "regular occurrence," according to an arrest affidavit obtained by the outlet.

During one alleged incident, she told Sherlocks Kotara asked her to babysit for his child while he went to work. But instead of leaving, the teen said the coach sexually assaulted her while the child played nearby in the same room, the Express-News reports.

On another occasion, she alleged Kotara asked her to run an errand with him then took her to a hotel and plied her with alcohol, according to the outlet.

Another coach at Kotara’s gym told police he saw the victim sitting naked on the coach’s lap in his office, and later showed detectives text messages from July 2018 where he confronted Kotara.

Kotara later claimed he wasn’t wearing shorts at the time because it was hot in his office, WOAI reports.

The teen ultimately tried to distance herself from Kotara by changing her phone number, but the coach allegedly continued to contact her on a daily basis through email, according to the News-Express.

The gym he owns, which was not named in court docs, had been closed as of Friday, KENS reports.

Kotara is also facing theft and burglary charges for allegedly breaking into a gym and stealing two fans before trying to sell them to another business, the station reports.

La Parka, popular Mexican wrestler, dies after traumatic in-ring injury
[NYPOST] Popular Mexican wrestler La Parka has died months after a dangerous stunt left him paralyzed, officials said.
"Huh huh! Hold my cerveza and watch this, man!"
The pro wrestler — whose real name was Jesus Alfonso Huerta Escoboza — was competing at an October match when he attempted to jump through the ropes to attack an opponent outside the ring in Monterrey, Mexico, the Los Angeles Times reported.

But La Parka missed and hit his head on a guard rail and the floor, leaving him paralyzed, the outlet reported.

He began to experience kidney issues Friday and died the following day from lung and kidney failure, according to CNN. Reports state his age as 54 or 55.

Lucha Libre AAA mourned the loss of the wrestler, who was known for wearing intricate masks, in a Twitter post Saturday.

"We are very sad to report that our friend and idol of Mexican wrestling Jesús Alfonso Escoboza Huerta ’LA PARKA’ has passed away," the organization said. "We extend our support and condolences to his whole family and raise our prayers so that they may soon heal from this."

#11  Its a horrible wound; unlike a 'prison wound' where bits are torn and can be sewn back or whatnot, pieces are missing and the Vet can't do anything about such a complex piece of anatomy. So the coyotes around here do a hit a run, then just wait the clock. Happens fast.

So family and I were out fishing one day. Early Spring so calves are still small, only good water hole for a ways, and cows had recently been through. I was on the highest ground doing for lack of a better word, overwatch because wife and small kids are in the fishing. Sun starts to dip and like that classic scene in western movies where everyone is sitting around the camp fire minding their business and Indians start whooping all around the camp, the coyotes announce themselves.

I had counted at least six positions, some positions I considered had more than one occupant, all within 100 yards. I racked about the time my wife sauntered up and said, 'honey, I think its time to go now.'

-War on Police-
New York's new bail law springs bank robbery suspect who pulls off another heist: cops
[FoxNews] A suspected serial bank robber freed on bail is accused of robbing another bank; congressional candidate Nicole Malliotakis weighs in.

New York’s new bail-reform law is being blamed for the release of an accused serial bank robber who may have struck another bank after he got out of jail.

Gerod Woodbury, 42, was charged Wednesday with robbing four Manhattan banks since Dec. 30, according to reports.

After being locked up, he was sprung the next day under the new law, which did away with bail in cases involving so-called nonviolent crimes, according to the New York Post.

On Friday, just a day after being released, Woodbury made his way to Brooklyn where he robbed another bank — his fifth in a two-week span, the paper reported, citing law enforcement sources.

The law, enacted last year under New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s signature, took effect Jan. 1.

Supporters said the law will prevent indigent people who can't afford bail from being locked up indefinitely for nonviolent crimes. Those released on their own recognizance promise the judge to return on their next court date.
A legitimate concern. Perhaps it should be reserved for first time offenders instead of regulars?

Africa Subsaharan
Hundreds of children flee DR #Congo clashes, several missing
Hundreds of children in DR Congo's lawless east have fled when fighting erupted near a disputed gold mine, leading to seven deaths, and many are still missing, residents and officials say.

Fierce clashes broke out in Salamabila in Maniema province on Saturday afternoon when members of the Malaika militia attacked the town, sparking a riposte from Congolese troops.

Hundreds of children at a school near the scene of the fighting then fled, locals said.

The Congolese army wrested control of Salamabila on Sunday evening, the UN Okapi radio reported, adding that three children were among seven civilians who died in the fighting.

The Malaika militia, which claims to represent the interests of local people, wants the Democratic Republic of Congo's government to hand over a bigger share of revenues from the Salamabila gold mines.

In 2017 and 2019, the group kidnapped several French and South African employees of Canadian mining giant Banro Corporation, which ran the gold mine.

In September, Banro said it was suspending activities at Salamabila, an open-cast mine which began commercial operations in 2011, because of "harassment and raids" and attacks on the site and its employees.

DR Congo's mineral-rich but volatile east faces regular attacks from a plethora of militias and rebel groups which operate freely in the region.

Trump to remove China from currency manipulator list as trade deal finalized
[WASHINGTONEXAMINER] The Trump administration will reportedly stop labeling China as a currency manipulator as a goodwill gesture to Beijing.

The decision, reported by the Wall Street Journal and CNBC, comes two days before Beijing officials are due in Washington to sign "phase one" of a trade deal with the United States.

The White House official designated China as a currency manipulator in August. The White House claimed in mid-December that it had reached a deal with Beijing on currency as part of the "phase one" agreement, but did not divulge the specific details. The White House declined to comment, and a Treasury Department official could not be reached for comment.

Hungary Offers Free IVF Procedures with Goal of 2.1 Birthrate by 2030
[BREITBART] Starting this year, the Hungarian government is set to offer free in vitro fertilization (IVF) procedures for couples wanting children in order to boost the national birthrate to 2.1 children by 2030.

The Hungarian government has taken control of six private fertility clinics and plans to purchase new buildings in order to meet demands of the estimated 150,000 couples across the country who have fertility issues but want to have children, La Croix reports.

Previously, IVF procedures were largely out of reach for many Hungarian couples due to the costs associated with the procedure, but now the pro-family government of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán is planning to give all couples free access.

Secretary of State for the Family Katalin Novák commented on the new measures saying: "If all couples who want a child manage to have a baby, Hungary will no longer have demographic problems."

Hungary currently faces a demographic winter if trends are not reversed, with the population expected to decline from the current 9.7 million to six million by the year 2070.
The Black Death reduced Europe's population by 30 to 60 percent in the 1400s. Birth control will do the same, if not worse, to include North America. So much for the population explosion...

#11  FYI --

You have to first install three prerequisite updates to your Windows 7 system: KB4490628, KB4474419, and KB4523206. Restart your system as needed.

From there, hit up the My Digital Life forums, register for a free account, and download the BypassESU tool. Install it, and you should then be able to install this test Extended Security Update (KB4528069). The BypassESU tool should allow you to circumvent the check Microsoft puts in place for Extended Security Updates. Once this update installs successfully, you should even be able to uninstall the BypassESU tool, as you’ll now be authenticated for future security updates.
