High school football captain stabs older male lover to death

Tarence Mitchell, 18, is accused of stabbing his older male lover to death Thursday night.
A 27-year-old Bloomfield man is dead, and an 18-year-old football star is now behind bars, accused of stabbing him several times.

Explosive information details in court documents show the two had been in a relationship in the past. The documents said the suspect was trying to move on, and the victim wouldn't let it go.

Tarence Mitchell, Bloomfield High School's football captain stood scared before a judge Friday, accused in the fatal stabbing of Ronald Taylor, Jr.

Police said Mitchell stabbed Taylor five times with a steak knife, and left the utensil in Taylor's back before he managed to pull it out on his own and later dying from his injuries.

At first, investigators said Mitchell lied and said the two were attacked by two unidentified black men wearing hoodies. Mitchell later confessed to the crime, according to documents.

In this Friday, Nov. 22, 1963, file photo, Jacqueline Kennedy, with bloodstains on her clothes, holds hands with her brother-in-law, Attorney General Robert Kennedy, as the coffin carrying the body of President John F. Kennedy is placed in an ambulance after arriving at Andrews Air Force Base, Md., near Washington. President Kennedy was assassinated earlier that afternoon in Dallas
The pink suit that former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy wore the day her husband was shot 50 years ago - now blood-stained - will stay hidden from public view until at least 2103.

It's never been cleaned, and it's not been seen by anyone except National Archives workers at the building in Maryland, where it's now stored, since Nov. 22, 1963, CNN reported.

Immediately following the assassination, Mrs. Kennedy refused to change out of the suit, a Coco Chanel knockoff, saying several times: "No, I'm going to leave these clothes on. I want them to see what they have done."


Behind the Headlines: JFK remembered, ISON approaches, and electric weather

The SOTT.net team's 'All and Everything' series returns to SOTT Talk Radio this week, when we'll be casting an eye on the latest scandals, the trends that matter, and the kind of information Big Brother prefers you never hear!

Following on from last week's show on the murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, we're going to discuss a couple of aspects to the dreadful event that open up intriguing new possibilities. Was the event in Dallas in November 1963 originally meant to be a staged assassination? Did other interested parties then hijack the initial plan by actually killing JFK? We'll look at the evidence for this, including the possibility of Israeli involvement.

With no less than five comets currently flaring brightly within observation range of northern hemisphere observers, 2013 is living up to its moniker as 'Year of the Comets'. As ISON approaches perihelion on November 28th, we'll be asking: is there a connection between the wild spaceweather and the crazy storms taking place around the world of late?

Venomous snake bites sleeping girl in bed in China

A 12-year-old girl has been hospitalized in Chongqing after a poisonous snake crawled into her bed and bit her as she slept on November 21.

"The doctors said it takes at least six days to work all the venom from her body," said the parent Hu Xiaoming.

The girl woke with a scream as she slept with her grandmother that night in Tongji village, Dianjiang county, who soon discovered the girl was bleeding from her right wrist.

Hu explained the next morning they found a brown snake about 60 centimeters in length coiled under their bed, which by that time the girl's hand had become completely swollen. Four distinct teeth marks were also visible.

According to Huang Yongzhao, an animal expert with Chongqing Museum of Natural History, a warm bed can be quite attractive to a snake looking to hibernate as winter approaches.

The report failed to identify the species of snake.


Former executioner now campaigns to end capital punishment

'When I accepted the job, I never told my wife or kids or anybody.'
Jerry Givens worked for 25 years for Virginia's department of corrections. He was the state's executioner from 1982 to 1999 and administered the death penalty to 62 inmates, some by lethal injection and some by electrocution. For many years, even his own family did not know the truth about his job. Now Jerry campaigns to end capital punishment. He is the author of Another Day Not Promised and is on the board of Virginians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty. Today he opens up on Comment is free about his old job, what caused him to change his mind and the realities of America's criminal justice system.

1. Can you describe what the day was like when you had to perform an execution?

On the day before, we begin what we call a 24-hour "death watch". Normally I would be there starting at 9pm during the death watch and spend the night at the institution in case something would occur during that period. Everything is reported that happens. We have security guys for the "death team", a special group of people who simply maintain security for the death chamber. Inmates arrive at Greensville, the institution with the death chamber, 15 days prior to the execution date. For those days, we have to provide security around the clock.

We would test the equipment frequently, whether we had an execution or not. But on the day of an execution or during that week, we would have all sorts of training. We train for the worst. We train for the man to put up resistance. Most would not, but sometimes it would get rough.

On the day of the execution, I could almost tell if the condemned had already accepted that this was it for them or not. Some folks resigned themselves to it. I would try to see if the inmate is at that level and if he's ready or not. If there's tension in the building, you could sense it. He would prepare and get things together for last meal and who he wanted to see.

Most of the time, during the actual execution, I'm back behind the partition, behind a curtain with my equipment. I'm alone as the executioner, but we had a crew that would go and escort the inmate and place him on the gurney or in the chair and strap him down and a doctor who would confirm the heart had stopped after.


Fox News calls people who give to the homeless 'enablers'

According to Fox News, this woman is likely a scammer, alcoholic, or addict who doesn’t deserve your help.
I don't throw around the term "hero" lightly, but it takes a special kind of person to look at a homeless man on the street - with no home to stay warm in, little access to a shower or clean clothes, and few possessions - and decide that he's got it too good. But Fox Business host John Stossel bravely took up that mantle Thursday morning during a guest appearance on Fox & Friends, warning viewers about the perniciousness of giving money to the poor.

Donning a fake beard, Stossel sat on a New York City sidewalk with a cardboard sign asking people for help. "I just begged for an hour but I did well," he said. "If I did this for an eight-hour day I would've made 90 bucks. Twenty-three thou for a year. Tax-free."

Elizabeth Hasselbeck, who recently purchased a $4 million home in Greenwich, gasped in horror at the prospect of poor people earning $23,000 a year. Some people asking for money "are actually scammers," Hasselbeck warned, seemingly unaware of the irony that the only panhandling "scammer" Fox News identified was Stossel.

Because he was able to successfully convince good-hearted pedestrians that he was poor, Stossel went on to chastise people who gave the homeless money because, in his view, "most are not...for real."

He implored viewers to stop giving money to poor people because if you do, "you're an enabler."


"Ag-Gag" in effect: Undercover investigator charged with animal cruelty for videotaping farm abuse

An undercover investigator for the animal protection nonprofit Compassion Over Killing is being charged with animal cruelty for filming animal abuse of newborn calves in Colorado.

Taylor Radig worked at Quanah Cattle Co. in Kersey, Colorado, and covertly filmed calves, some so young they still had umbilical cords attached, being kicked, thrown, and slammed onto trucks. Video footage was released by the group on November 13th, and on November 15th criminal charges were filed against three men shown abusing the animals.

At the time, Sherriff John Cooke said "We still have work to do. We want to make sure we have identified all the suspects and all the parties to determine if we need to make other arrests."

Today the Sherriff's department announced additional charges were filed against the young woman who filmed the abuse and turned over the footage to the police.

In a press release, the police admit as much: "The video footage was eventually provided to law enforcement by representatives of Compassion Over Killing approximately 2 months after Radig's employment ended with Quanah Cattle Company... Radig's failure to report the alleged abuse of the animals in a timely manner adheres to the definition of acting with negligence and substantiates the charge Animal Cruelty." Radig is also accused of participating in the abuse.

Compassion Over Killing said in a statement that the prosecution is retaliatory: "The charge against our investigator is unsupported by the law and it reeks of political motivation fueled by an agribusiness industry that is once again lashing out in desperation to stop undercover investigators from exposing the truth."

The prosecution of a whistleblower who exposed animal cruelty in this way is unprecedented.
