Two 13-year-old boys running a lemonade stand in Illinois are robbed at GUNPOINT by two older teenagers who steal their $30 profits
Two 13-year-old boys running a lemonade stand in suburban Illinois have been robbed at gunpoint by two other teenagers who made off with $30 in profits.
Surveillance video captured the moment Jude Peterson and his friend were robbed outside his home in Peoria, southwest of Chicago, last Friday afternoon.
The footage, which was captured from a neighbor's home, showed the two older boys wearing hooded sweatshirts as they approached from across the street.

Jonathan Schmitz Killed A Man For Revealing A Crush On Him On TV — Where Is He Now?
Michigan man Jonathan Schmitz, then 24, was invited onto “The Jenny Jones Show” in 1995. "The Jenny Jones Show" began in 1991 as a traditional talk show where serious topics were discussed, but by 1993 it transformed into something more like "Maury" and "The Jerry Springer Show." The show's segments began ranging from paternity tests to out-of-control teens to secret crush reveals.
During the taping of this particular episode, which was entitled “Same Sex Secret Crushes,” Schmitz's acquaintance Scott Amedure, 32, revealed his crush on him while also describing details of his sexual fantasies about him. While Schmitz appeared to be a good sport about it ?— he was mostly smiling and laughing ?— he was deeply humiliated. At points, he covered his face with his hands; he also turned to Amedure and the female friend who brought him on the show and said, “You lied to me.” His father had made multiple homophobic statements in the past and Schmitz seemingly feared being perceived as gay, as the docuseries points out.

A Washington state man sexually abused a 12-year-old while hiding out in her bedroom over the course of a month, federal prosecutors said.

Cavasos then secretly moved into the girl’s room on Feb. 10, hiding from her grandfather by staying in a cavity beneath the girl’s bed after removing slats that held her mattress, Assistant US Attorney Jennifer Martin said.

Home Secretary Priti Patel admits 7% increase in knife crime is 'appalling' and says London Mayor Sadiq Khan 'should be doing more'
Priti Patel yesterday conceded the latest rise in knife crime was 'appalling' - as she vowed a tough new approach.
In a frank admission, the Home Secretary said that an overall fall in recorded crime could not mask the misery caused by a sharp rise in knife offences, which are at a record high.
Official figures released last month showed that knife crimes in England and Wales rose by 7 per cent last year to 45,627.
The figure represents a 49 per cent rise on 2011, when comparable records began.
In an interview with the Daily Mail, Miss Patel said the figures were 'terrible' but vowed a tough new approach which would mean thugs caught with a knife 'going down'.

Baltimore turns to aerial surveillance as homicides continue
Starting Friday, the roughly 600,000 people living in Baltimore will be constantly recorded whenever they step out under the open sky.
Marvin L. Cheatham Sr., for one, knows he could be watched as he goes to a doctor’s appointment or visits friends. He’ll be spied upon in his back yard, and as he steps into his car, and when he drives around the city, his entire trip will be recorded, too.
All his movements will be captured, and he’s OK with this — even though police will have no search warrant, and the overwhelming majority of Baltimore’s citizens will have committed no crimes — because the city is so besieged by violence.
“I am so upset and angry about all these people that have died, I’m willing to give up some of my rights, as bad as that sounds, and I’m a staunch civil rights person,” said Cheatham, who led his local NAACP chapter in the 1990s. “I had 19 homicides two years ago in my neighborhood.”

Seven high-risk sex offenders — 'the most dangerous kind of criminal' — released early in California over coronavirus
The Orange County District Attorney's Office warned residents that seven high-risk sex offenders have been released months early as part of the efforts in California to slow the spread of the coronavirus in jails, KCBS-TV reported.
"These kinds of high-risk sex offenders are the most dangerous kind of criminal and the most likely to re-offend," Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer said in a news release. "They are doing everything they can to avoid detection by the parole officers assigned to monitor them so they can potentially commit additional sex offenses. These are not the kind of people who should be getting a break."
The sex offenders — convicted of crimes ranging from indecent exposure and sexual battery to child molestation — were released beginning April 7, many of them spending just days behind bars instead of the six months required by law for registered sex offenders who violate parole by removing or disabling GPS monitors.
"It is not the Court's responsibility to control the jail population by releasing these dangerous criminals back into our communities," Spitzer said. "The residents of Orange County deserve to have the peace of mind that registered sex offenders are being held accountable and not just let out the front door of a jail by a court commissioner who refuses to follow the law."

A California police officer punched a 14-year-old black boy in the chest and pinned his head to the ground while detaining him for possessing a cigar in an incident that was captured on video.
The video, which was posted to Twitter by the boy's family and their friends, shows a Rancho Cordova police officer beating the teen as he struggles on the ground. After it was shared tens of thousands of times, authorities said the incident was under review — but also that the boy resisted detention as the officer attempted to investigate a potential crime.
"It’s important to put video footage into context, especially in relation to a use of force incident," Sacramento County Sheriff's Sgt. Tess Deterding said in a statement.
