Eight pedestrians injured after driver may have ‘deliberately’ hit them, police say
Eight pedestrians were injured Tuesday evening in Sunnyvale, Calif., after a driver, who was reportedly speeding, may have “deliberately” hit them, police said.
The driver, identified only as an adult male, is in custody. All eight people, who were walking through a crosswalk or standing nearby, were transported to local hospitals for treatment and evaluation, Capt. Jim Choi of the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety told The Washington Post. The youngest victim is 13 years old, Choi said. Police have not identified the victims or offered updates on their conditions.
Based on a preliminary investigation, Choi said, “it looks like this may have been an intentional act by the driver.”
“We don’t have any witnesses saying the vehicle tried to avoid the collision,” said Choi, a public information officer. “Based upon just what was seen at the scene, the evidence on scene and some of the statements we obtained, there was no braking. The vehicle didn’t try to swerve out of the way.”

Alabama sheriff’s deputy attacks LGBTQ community after gay teen dies by suicide
A sheriff’s deputy in Alabama has been placed on leave after he made anti-LGBTQ comments on social media — specifically, on a post about a teenage boy who was bullied until he killed himself, Alabama.com reported Monday.
Last weekend, a local Alabama news station shared Rocket City Pride’s Facebook post about Nigel Shelby, a 15-year-old who died by suicide after being bullied for being gay, according to Rocket City Pride. The station’s story specifically highlighted the fact that LGBTQ people face a higher risk of violence and that they often lack legal protections.
On Sunday, Madison County Deputy Jeff Graves denounced the entire LGBTQ community in a comment to that Facebook post.
“Liberty. Guns. Bible. Trump. BBQ. That’s my kind of LGBTQ movement,”

Ask Amy: Recovering mom doesn't want dog at home
Dear Amy: For the past 2 ½ years my son (now 9) has been asking for a dog. I’ve been saying no because while I like dogs, I prefer them in other people’s houses.
I didn’t want to take on the considerable expense and care for a dog.
Four months ago, I had a brain aneurysm. Thankfully, I am OK and recovering. However, during my recovery in the hospital I thought I was dying and that it would be a good idea for my son to have a dog to love and care for in the event that I did die.
I was coming off of anesthesia and on a lot of pain medication. I feel confident in saying that at the time, I was not in my right mind.

Women Sexually Abused By Catholic Nuns Speak Up: She Told Me It Was ‘God’s Love’
The predator nun walked into Trish Cahill’s life straight out of the blue, on a busy summer day in the late 1960s.
Cahill was a teenager back then, wire thin with long, chestnut brown hair framing her face. She was babysitting her cousins in Glen Rock, New Jersey, and there were eight of them to look after ? a big Catholic family, much like her own.
One cousin was playing outside that day and Cahill had another little one in a high chair in the kitchen. It was quite a common child care tactic at the time, she said ? stick a kid in a playpen in the yard and watch through the window while doing chores and taking care of the others inside.
Cahill was washing dishes at the sink when she looked up and spotted a nun, in a full religious habit, hovering over the baby’s playpen.
At that point in her life, the teenager was still trying to make sense of a painful secret ? the sexual abuse she says she experienced just years earlier from her uncle, a Catholic priest. So when she saw the nun leaning over the baby, Cahill said, she sprinted outside to protect the child.
“It was like, ‘You’re not going to touch her, you’re not going to put your hands on her,’” Cahill remembers thinking.
But the nun she met took her by surprise.
How Doctors And The Church Conspired To Stop An 11-Year-Old Girl From Having An Abortion After Rape
SAN MIGUEL DE TUCUMÁN, Argentina — Lucía sat up in her hospital bed as the priest made the sign of the cross on her forehead, the 11-year-old’s bulging belly visible underneath her pajama shirt.
“Think long and hard about what you’re considering doing,” Lucía’s mother remembered the priest telling them. “Save both lives,” he said.
Lucía wasn’t sure what the priest was talking about. She only knew her grandmother’s partner had done something bad to her and now she had a terrible stomachache.
The priest was just one of a constant stream of people, including government officials, who came to the hospital in February to coerce Lucía into giving birth. But Lucía, who still had some of her baby teeth, only had one thing on her mind as she begged the adults around her in between crying fits: Take out the thing the old man put in me.
Her visitors refused.
Modi's party chief vows to throw illegal immigrants in India into Bay of Bengal
The head of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ruling Hindu nationalist party took his invective against illegal Muslim immigrants to a new level this week as the general election kicked off, promising to throw them into the Bay of Bengal.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah referred such illegal immigrants as “termites”, a description he also used last September, when he drew condemnation from rights groups. The U.S. State Department also noted the remark in its annual human rights report.
“Infiltrators are like termites in the soil of Bengal,” Shah said on Thursday at a rally in the eastern state of West Bengal, as voting in India’s 39-day general election started.
“A Bharatiya Janata Party government will pick up infiltrators one by one and throw them into the Bay of Bengal,” he said, referring to illegal immigrants from neighboring Muslim-majority Bangladesh.
Is Gentrification Reason Behind Attack of Two Interpreters in Gay Bashing
Washington DC - 12:30 AM officers responded to the 2000 block of 10th St., N.W. on April 15, 2018. This was in response to an aggravated assault. There are two adult males that were attacked by three suspects. "during the assault, the suspects yelled homophobic slurs" the police statement says. U St NW is predominantly black neighborhood where Howard University is based in and this neighborhood has always been a predominately black neighborhood.
Small Dot is DuPont Circle. Circle is U St. NW area where the attack occured.
Washington D.C. has been going through gentrification and because the area (DuPont Circle and Logan Circle) where the gay community has always been located has gone through gentrification, their bars have been pushed to the U street area. Since U St. NW is being gentrified as well, many black people are angry about being pushed out of their neighborhood so it does not shock Ricky Taylor that gay bashings happened because they felt threatened by gentrification. DuPont Circle used to have rougly 15 gay bars but currently only have four while U St. NW had none and now have about four or five. This occured when DuPont gentrification increased cost of lease and rentals in the area which caused those bars to shut down or relocate.

Suspension urged for judge who told woman: 'Close your legs'
An ethics committee has recommended a three-month, unpaid suspension for a New Jersey judge who told a woman she could "close your legs" to prevent a sexual assault.
The committee released its recommendation to the state Supreme Court Wednesday in the case of Superior Court Judge John Russo, who sits on the bench in Ocean County in southern New Jersey. He has been on administrative leave since 2017.
The woman appeared before Russo in 2016 seeking a restraining order against a man she said sexually assaulted her. According to a transcript of the exchange, when the woman described her encounter with the man, Russo asked her, "Do you know how to stop somebody from having intercourse with you?"
