Penis-scrawling prankster wanted for vandalizing NYPD tickets
Top cops are trying to find the NYPD prankster who scrawled penis images on a handful of moving violations tickets that were almost given out to the public.
On Monday morning, a cop from the 83rd Precinct was about to give a motorist a ticket for having excessive tint on his car.
But when the ticket came out of his squad car’s printer, he spotted a giant phallic symbol drawn on the top of it.
A prankster had vandalized at least three of the tickets before they were put in the printer in the cop’s squad car, sources said. Source

In California's rural, conservative north, there are big dreams for cleaving the state
The two young, blond women in figure-flattering ball gowns hoisted whiskey and shotguns.
An auctioneer rattled off bids. Above the stage in the banquet hall hung a green flag for the 51st state of Jefferson, with its pair of Xs called a “double-cross” representing a sense of rural abandonment.
Hundreds of people packed into the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 9650 hall on this chilly Saturday night, ready to crack open wallets to help fund their dream of carving — out of California’s northernmost reaches — a brand new state.
Someone offered $350 for a state of Jefferson belt buckle. Someone else won a lamb, still in its mother’s womb, that should be born in time to be butchered for Easter. Outside, vehicles bore bumper stickers supporting President Trump and the 2nd Amendment.
“We Okies are fun, aren’t we?” one man quipped.

PAOLI, Ind. —
A white nationalist arrested for physically harassing a woman protesting at a 2016 Donald Trump rally is accused of attacking his wife and her stepfather in southern Indiana.
Matthew Heimbach, 26, was charged Tuesday with battery and domestic battery committed in the presence of a child under age 16. He was released from jail after posting bond. Heimbach is chairman of the Traditionalist Worker Party, which has described itself on its website as “fighting to secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.”

You know, the biggest thing he gave me was that he said he was an atheist and that life had no purpose. Had no meaning. His life had no purpose. Other people’s lives, also, had no purpose.
He talked about wanting to, kind of, further society through science. He’d been studying science. But he said he was failing the science course and basically his purpose in life is, kind of, no reason. So he had no purpose. He also said, he used the term, he wanted to “break the monotony.” Source

Girl, 11, saved after 'grandfather posed as a policeman and kidnapped her for five days aiming to extort ransom - or kill her with crossbow and dismember her if plan went wrong'
A massive door to door search by police and volunteers saved a terrified 11-year-old girl from being killed with a crossbow then dismembered by a twisted grandfather who kidnapped her, Russian police said.
Sergey Vikhlyantsev, 59, posed as a policeman with a fake ID and told Anya Vypretskaya she was under arrest after snaring her as she walked to school.
He handcuffed her and bundled her into his car before taking her to his flat where he bound her with rope and covered her mouth with sticky tape.
The retired shop loader's evil plan was to take her to Moscow from her city of Kamyshin, near Volgograd, and demand a ransom from the girl's wealthy parents.
But police say after interrogating him that his back-up scheme if things went wrong was to kill her with his crossbow and chop up her bo…
