Produced by Christopher Gidez On Aug. 28, 2017, police in upstate Corning, New York, were called to the home of Michele Neurauter. Police found the 46-year-old mother of three hanging from a rope -- an apparent suicide. But Police Chief Jeff Spaulding had doubts, calling a rope mark found on Michele's chin "unsettling." Michele's mother Jeanne Laundy thought she was murdered, and pointed fingers at Neurauter's ex-husband, even though he was more than 2,500 miles away on a job interview in California when Michele was found dead. "I'm thinking it's more than likely Lloyd killed her," Jeanne Laundy told "48 Hours" correspondent Erin Moriarty. Lloyd Neurauter was Michele's ex-husband. For five years, the couple had been embroiled in bitter custody battles. Michele accused Lloyd of turning their daughters against her. On the day police found Michele, the couple's 19-year-old middle daughter, Karrie, at college in Rochester, told investigators that over the weekend, her father helped her … [Read more...] about “I had to choose”: Did a father brainwash his daughter to help kill her mother?
Rear ended how much should i settle for
By CALmatters PUBLISHED: February 7, 2019 at 7:02 am | UPDATED: February 7, 2019 at 7:04 am The modern American gun debate began on May 2, 1967, when 30 protesting members of the Black Panther Party marched into the California Capitol with loaded handguns, shotguns and rifles. As photos of gun-toting radicals from Oakland hit front pages across the country, many Americans were shocked to see who was embracing the Second Amendment. In California, as in most states at the time, there were few restrictions on carrying loaded weapons in public. That soon changed. The Panthers’ efforts to “police the police” already had led Republican Assemblyman Don Mulford to propose legislation to ban the “open carry” of loaded firearms within California cities and towns. After the Panthers showed up in the Capitol, his bill sailed through and was signed by then-Gov. Ronald Reagan. (Yes, that Reagan). It’s hard to say which now seems more unlikely: that two dozen … [Read more...] about How California got tough on guns
America’s foremost attorney for far-right extremists wanted “a little gravy,” then lied to cover it up. That’s just part of his twisted journey through a lax legal system. By Luke O'Brien 12/27/2018 03:09 pm ET Updated 2 minutes ago One morning this June, a group of lawyers filed into the office of the State Bar of Nevada and closed the door. It was summer in Las Vegas, the morning temperature already nearing 100 degrees, but inside the low-slung tan building, the lawyers had a chilly question to address: what to do about one of their own. Marc Randazza had been a problem for years. Randazza, who represents conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and many other far-right extremists, had long relied on lawyer buddies to pump his public image. By their telling and his own, Randazza was a First Amendment “badass.” But he was a combative badass, even vicious, and he’d left a trail of bad blood and trampled ethics behind him. Randazza had … [Read more...] about Alex Jones’ Lawyer Violated Legal Ethics By Soliciting Porn Bribes. Just How Dirty Is Marc Randazza?
0 Have your say Scotch beef is in demand, both in Scotland and the wider UK, and, thanks to the current weak pound, Caledonian Marts is seeing a very strong export market for Scotch lamb. To meet the demands, both of today’s market place and historically, a highly specialist red meat chain has grown up in Scotland. Essentially this chain stretches from field to fork, from the farmer to the consumer, via various links including abattoirs, high street butchers and restaurants.Supermarkets are the biggest buyers of produce from Scottish farms and take in the largest share of the food spend of consumers. The purchasing power of supermarket procurement teams – a direct result of their dominant market share – is particularly evident in meat procurement and translates into a system whereby it is very much the buyer who dictates the price to the abattoir/meat processor, who in turn dictates to the farmer how much he or she will be … [Read more...] about John Kyle: If you have a beef with Brexit or not, Scottish meat needs support
0 Have your say Education Secretary John Swinney’s response to angry teachers on air suggests serious failure to comprehend their problems, writes Dani Garavelli. It must have taken some guts for John Swinney to agree to spend an hour on BBC Radio Scotland’s Stephen Jardine Programme on Thursday, fielding questions on the mayhem that is the current state of Scottish education. Not as much guts as it would have taken to go on the week before when teachers were still on holiday and free to call in, of course. But even with most of them safely ensconced in the classroom, the encounter was unlikely to be anything other than bruising. There is a point at which unflappability veers into complacency. He crossed that line A quick recap of the problems that have reared their heads in the past few weeks alone should give an insight into the scale of the maelstrom Swinney was heading into. But where to start? With the 700 teaching posts that remained unfilled … [Read more...] about Dani Garavelli: Is he bovvered? John Swinney must try harder
