Boy playing with fire destroys family home

A young Victorian family has lost everything in a house fire after a four-year-old boy lit a piece of paper on the stove. 

The mum and dad were cooking dinner at the Narina Way home, in Epping, last night when they stepped outside for a cigarette just after 10pm. 

That’s when their young son used the kitchen stove to light a piece of paper on fire.

 

Border inspector, former ICE agent face felony cases in California

A former Homeland Security Investigations special agent raped a woman twice, sexually assaulted another and told the victims police would never believe them if they reported him because of his law enforcement position, federal prosecutors alleged.

John Jacobs Olivas, 43, of Riverside, California, was arrested Wednesday and pleaded not guilty in 

a U.S. District Court hearing the same afternoon. The crimes took place in 2012, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles.

 
 

A federal grand jury indictment alleges that Olivas, who resigned in 2015, raped a victim twice, in September 2012 and November 2012, and tried to rape another in January 2012. The document alleges he told the second victim that “police would not be responsive” if she tried to report him.

Facebook Fueled Anti-Refugee Attacks in Germany, New Research Suggests

ALTENA, Germany — When you ask locals why Dirk Denkhaus, a young firefighter trainee who had been considered neither dangerous nor political, broke into the attic of a refugee group house and tried to set it on fire, they will list the familiar issues.

This small riverside town is shrinking and its economy declining, they say, leaving young people bored and disillusioned. Though most here supported the mayor’s decision to accept an extra allotment of refugees, some found the influx disorienting. Fringe politics are on the rise.

WE HAVE SOME DANGEROUS WHITE MEN IN THIS EPISODE AS WELL BUT BECKY WILL NOT GO UNNOTICED 

 “A racist attack nearly left me without an eye,” actor Marius Makon posted on Twitter. “Racism will never defeat us, love, love and love.”

Makon, who was born in Cameroon and is also known as Elton Prince, was referring to a Saturday assault in Madridthat left him bruised and bloodied.

According to a Facebook post by Makon, the actor and his friends had stepped up to order coffee early Saturday when a couple approached him.

“I don’t want black people in this place or in front of me,” the woman, 33, reportedly said. Makon wrote that he tried to de-escalate the situation, telling her, “I will only be here for a moment and then I’m leaving. I don’t have any interest in staying near you for long.”

The woman then reportedly called him a “black piece of s—.” When he asked her to calm down, he wrote, she began attacking him with a glass bottle. She hit him twice on the head, Makon said, causing a cut and other injuries that required seven stitches.

“I’m white,” she allegedly said. “I can kill you and nothing will happen.”

The owners of the restaurant intervened and called police. When authorities arrived, they briefly detained the woman but released her after she gave a statement. The Spanish Immigration and Refugee Support Network has urged Madrid prosecutors to investigate the incident as a hate crime.

A 54-year-old woman who authorities say repeatedly shouted the n-word at some neighborhood children faces a possible jail sentence — but not for her hateful words.

In Oregon, it’s not a crime in and of itself to call someone the n-word. In this case, the racial slur was directed at two African-American boys ages 4 and 11 playing in the courtyard of the Southeast Portland apartment complex they shared with defendant Brenda Mae Glenn, prosecutors said.

But it’s what Glenn did next that earned her convictions during a one-day trial last month:

When the children’s mother told Glenn that her hurtful speech needed to stop, Glenn struck her on the head with a beer bottle. The mother, Tierra Dizer, suffered a goose-egg-sized bump to her forehead, according to police who arrived on the scene.

Racist Long Beach Woman Cowers Away When Asian Couple Starts Filming

 The woman in the video has been identified as Tarin Olson, a professor at Golden West College.

Racist Woman

Several Facebook users identified the woman as 58-year-old Tarin Frances Olson, a therapist, author, and professor in the Counseling Department at Golden West College, Huntington Beach, California.

 

But while the school indicated that one of its faculty members did make questionable comments via a Facebook post, it did not reference her by name.  

“It has recently come to our attention that there was a video posted on Facebook of a GWC faculty member making comments that the College does not condone or support. Golden West College believes in an inclusive and welcoming environment for all students,” the post read.

 

Netizens who soon flooded the comments section have found the post somewhat lacking:

Others were there to call for her dismissal from the school:

 

Some people have even accused the college of deleting comments.

 

 

As of now, Olson’s Linkedin account is also inactive.
