Police demand spit guards to protect them from coronavirus thugs who try to cough in their face during lockdown
Spit guards should be carried by all frontline police to protect officers from thugs spitting and coughing at them during the coronavirus pandemic, a senior figure has demanded.
Sergeant Simon Kempton, the operational lead for Covid-19 at the Police Federation, told MPs the virus was being 'weaponised' by criminals after dozens of such assaults in recent weeks.
He said: 'Now more than ever, while Covid-19 is being weaponised, we need those spit guards in the pocket of every single police officer, not just in custody, on the street as well.'

The rise of domestic abuse during COVID-19 in LGBTQ relationships and how you can get help
The data I have been able to collate tells me this: that 1 in every 4 lesbians and up to half of gay men have been a victim of domestic abuse at one time in their adult lives and that this figure is nearly at 80% if you are a transgender. The Office for National Statistics collated “experimental” data that informed the reader as of 2017: 1.1 million people over 16 identified themselves as LGB (there is currently no data for those identifying as transgender) out of a UK population aged 16 or over of 52.8 million, just 2% of the population.
However, what do the figures tell us about right now for LGBTQ victims? Sadly nothing. If you were heterosexual I would be able to tell you that every domestic abuse charity in England and Wales has seen a rise in calls to their helplines and in daily visits to their websites (Refuge has recorded a 25% rise in calls and over 100% rise in daily visits to their website). I could even tell you with (disturbing) confidence that this rise has been recognised across the world, but the LGBTQ victim’s voice remains shrouded.

Baltimore’s Gangs Aren’t Going To Let Some Coronavirus Slow Them Down
Social distancing may be helpful in slowing the spread of a virus, but it doesn’t do a thing in terms of gang violence because six feet is still considered a very short range when aiming a handgun. That may be the lesson coming out of Charm City as the pandemic grinds on. Private businesses and schools may be shut down, but the gang bangers still out there murdering each other with abandon. The body count in Baltimore from gang warfare is still leaving the coronavirus in the dust.

Vampire-obsessed teen murdered 90-year-old, ripped her heart out and drank her blood
A TEENAGE paperboy obsessed with vampires murdered a 90-year-old woman, ripped her heart out and drank her blood in the belief that he would become immortal, a new documentary reveals.
And Mathew Hardman would have gone on to prey on other elderly people had he not been caught for the murder of Mabel Leyshon, described by an officer as one of the most gruesome in British legal history. Mabel had been widowed for 40 years and had lived in her bungalow in Anglesey for 50 years when Hardman broke in as she watched TV on a 2001 December evening. Mabel, hard of hearing, 4ft 9in, and very thin, suffered 22 stab wounds as she tried to defend herself from Hardman, 17.
9 Reasons Why Anxiety Disorders In Teens Is On The Rise
Anxiety has become the most common mental-health disorder in the country. Unfortunately, it does not only affect adults.
According to the National Institute Of Mental Health, almost 32 percent of adolescents have an anxiety disorder.
However, the troubling part of this statistic is that anxiety is only becoming more prevalent as the years go on, increasing 20 percent since 2007.
So, why is anxiety in teens on the rise?
LGBT charity tells young people to ‘hit pause’ on coming out while in lockdown with parents
The Albert Kennedy Trust (AKT), a charity that cares for the LGBT+ homeless, has warned young people to “think hard” before coming out at this time.
The advice comes as LGBT+ helplines see a surge in calls from people who are stuck self-isolating with abusive family and partners.
“If you’re a young person and you’re thinking of coming out, press pause on that until you get support,” Tim Sigsworth, AKT’s CEO, told Sky News.
He expressed concern for how families may react to their child coming out in this particularly stressful time, and warned of the dangers of being made homeless during the pandemic.

Chicago Man Killed Himself and a Woman After Fearing They Had Coronavirus, Police Say
Police say a man in the Chicago area shot himself and a woman in his apartment after fearing both had the new coronavirus, The Chicago Tribune reports. Will County Sheriff’s deputies found the bodies of Patrick Jesernik, 54, and Cheryl Schriefer, 59, during a welfare check Saturday that had been requested by Jesernik’s family, who had not heard from him. Family members said Jesernik had been afraid that he was suffering from COVID-19 and that Schriefer had been having trouble breathing. Tests for COVID-19 came back negative for both after the apparent murder-suicide. The prohibition of any group larger than 10 people to slow the spread of the coronavirus has stymied recovery and domestic violence prevention efforts across the world.

MAN CHARGED AFTER ALLEGEDLY COUGHING ON PACKETS OF NOODLES REFUSED DUE TO CORONAVIRUS PURCHASE LIMITS
Police in Australia have charged a man accused of intentionally coughing on packets of noodles after being told by staff there was a limit on how many he could buy.
The suspect, a 34-year-old man from the suburb of Kooringal, tried to ignore the restrictions put in place as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak by purchasing four packets of noodles, police said. The incident took place at a Woolworths in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, last Thursday.
After being approached by staff, the man allegedly coughed on the two packets he was refused and said "well they're now contaminated anyway," 9News reported.
His attempted rule-breaking noodle purchase was initially flagged by a self-serve register, Riverina Police District's Acting Detective Inspector, Steve Probst, told the news outlet.

Coronavirus-panicked dad locks son out of house after spring break trip
Two weeks ago, Matt Levine’s immediate concerns centered on where to find the best happy hour and coolest DJ. Now, he just wants his coronavirus-panicked dad to let him back in the house.
While residents in his hometown of Nanuet, NY, were hunkering down to avoid corona, 21-year-old Matt and his friends from Springfield College in Massachusetts hit up spring break in South Padre Island, Texas — and stayed there against the advice of his father, Peter Levine.
“I spoke with him every day and told him that maybe they should come home,” Peter, 52, and a salesman, told The Post. “I was aggravated. The news here was getting worse and worse. Matt sent me pictures of him and his friends congregating outdoors and listening to live music. It’s the scene you would not want to be in.”
Finally, Peter told Matt and his buddies that they could not stay at the family home after the trip, as they’d planned. “His grandparents live here and there is no need to expose them to god knows what he had been exposed to!” Peter explained.
