shanesha taylor

Earlier this month, police arrested a mother in Scottsdale, Arizona, for leaving her two young children in the car while she went to a job interview.

On March 20, 35-year-old Shanesha Taylor, who is homeless, parked her car containing her two-year-old and six-month-old sons in the sun while she went to her interview. Someone saw the children by themselves in the car, which reportedly had the windows slightly open and was hot inside, and called the police. Police arrived and freed the children; Taylor showed up 45 minutes later and was arrested for two felony counts of child abuse. She said she couldn’t find anyone to take care of her kids, so she left them in the car alone. She was released early this morning from jail; her children are now in custody of Child Protective Services.

“She was upset. This is a sad situation all around. She said she was homeless. She needed the job. Obviously not getting the job. So it’s just a sad situation,” Scottsdale Police Department told KPHO.  Keep reading »

okcupid scam

A New York City man has filed a lawsuit against OkCupid’s parent company IAC after a guy he met on the online dating site scammed him out of $70,000. Michael Z. Picciano insists in his lawsuit that OkCupid, which is a free site, doesn’t properly screen its subscribers and that they are creating a false image of a safe place to meet people.

Picciano, who is 65, met “genuineguy62″ (oh, the irony), whose said his real name was Bruce Thompson, about a year ago. Picciano said he trusted Thompson and felt safe with him. They hit it off, and chatted on the phone and on Skype.

Things got sketchy when Thompson explained that he was facing “unexpected fees he incurred in his dealings setting up a new computer parts business.” Cool story bro. Picciano was fooled, however, and wired Thompson $24,000. Thompson instructed him to send them to two different names located in Texas and Canada, but Picciano must have been to caught up in his feelings to take note of that glaring red flag.

Montana Abortion Clinic That Survived A Firebombing Attack Was Broken Into & Vandalized

burglary

All Families Healthcare, the only clinic in Flathead Valley, Montana, which provides abortions as well as numerous other reproductive health surfaces to women, suffered a break-in and extensive vandalism on March 3rd.

All Families Healthcare experienced damage to its furniture, medical instruments and supplies, file cabinets, sewer line, furnace and water heater. A yellow powder also covered almost everything inside the clinic, The Missoulian newspaper reported. The clinic is run by Susan Cahill, a physician’s assistant in MT since the 1970s. In 1994, her clinic was firebombed by an anti-abortion extremist as part of a string of attacks against eight clinics that terminate pregnancies. At that time, Cahill’s clinic had to be closed for five months for repairs. Activists mobilized quickly after the most recent attack on the clinic and as of of today, an IndieGogo campaign has raised $41,000 and counting to repair the damage — and there are still 27 days left for the online fundraiser.

An Annapolis woman was robbed while in labor — how’s that for a baby story? According to the AP the woman and her boyfriend were making her way to the hospital when they got held up by three men. Get this — the woman’s boyfriend fled. She is in labor, they’re getting robbed and  he runs away. Let that sink in for a minute.

The robbers tried to make her let him into the apartment, but she didn’t have a key. Instead, they stole her car. Thankfully, police busted them shortly thereafter. (Had they instead noticed she was in labor and taken her in a car to the hospital, we would have the plot of a rom-com on our hands.) No word on how this poor woman is doing, but she deserves all the gold stars. And all the epidurals. It turns out that giving birth on the New York City sidewalk and a nearby local news crew catching it on tape is not the #1 Crap Terrible Horrible Way To Give Birth. [AP] [Image of pregnant belly via Shutterstock]
