    Gyrocopter Pilot Charged for Landing on US Capitol Grounds

    (WASHINGTON) — The man who flew what he called a “flying bicycle” through restricted airspace above the nation’s capital and landed near the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday made his initial appearance in federal court Thursday afternoon. Doug Hughes, 61, of Ruskin, Fla., walked in wearing his U.S. Postal uniform, looking tan. He also had to wear court earphones so he could hear (the earphones usually used by foreign-speaking defendants who need translations). During the hearing, the judge read the charges against him — one count of knowingly operating an aircraft not properly registered and one count of violating national air… Read more

    'No Catcalling' Street Signs Pop Up in New York, Philadelphia

    (NEW YORK) — The streets of New York and Philadelphia have been getting new street signs that look just like “No Parking” signs, but they’re sending a different message. If you’re keeping your eyes peeled, you’ll notice the new signs say things like: “NO CATCALLING ANYTIME” and “NO CATCALL ZONE.” The “public street art” is being “sneakily” put up to raise awareness for International Anti-Street Harassment Week this week, says non-profit clothing company “Feminist Apparel.” The group added it started the project in collaboration with Philadelphia-based feminist group “Pussy Division.” There are over 50 signs up already, and the campaign… Read more

    Ohio Man Charged with Providing Material Support to Terrorists

    (COLUMBUS, Ohio) — An Ohio man who allegedly sympathized with ISIS and trained with another terrorist group in Syria has been arrested by federal authorities after returning and looking to launch attacks in the U.S. homeland, the Justice Department announced Thursday.

    Hear the 911 Calls that Led Police to Take in 'Free Range' Kids

    (SILVER SPRING, Md.) — A newly released 911 tape reveals why a concerned citizen called Maryland police after seeing two children whose family advocates so-called free-range parenting. “Two kids, who are unaccompanied, and they’ve been walking around for probably around 20 minutes by themselves,” the man said. The caller then tries to guess the children’s age as “7 or 8″ for the boy and “about 6″ for the girl. He said the children had asked to pet his dog and he was concerned that no parents or guardians were with them. The caller eventually flagged down police who made contact… Read more

    Aaron Hernandez: What's Next for Ex-Patriots Star After Being Sentenced to Life in Prison

    (FALL RIVER, Mass.) — Former football star Aaron Hernandez will spend the rest of his life in prison, but one trip out from behind bars that he’ll be forced to make will be to face further murder charges. The ex-Patriots tight end was found guilty Wednesday to the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd, the boyfriend of his fiancee’s sister. He was sentenced to life in prison without the chance of parole. One factor that was noticeably absent throughout the more than two month trial, however, was the motive behind the crime — and the reason for that comes from other… Read more
