Poll: Majority Of Americans Want Donald Trump Investigated For Sexual Harassment

A new poll from Quinnipiac University suggests that a majority of Americans believe that President Donald Trump should be investigated by Congress over the bevy of sexual harassment allegations he has faced in the past.

70% of Americans are reportedly in favor of an investigation of the President, while 25% believe that is not necessary. The breakdown of that statistic along party lines is somewhat unsurprising: 86% of Democrats would be in favor of an investigation; only 39% of Republicans would be interested in such an inquiry. Indepedents were more evenly divided: 66% of them wanted the situation looked in to. 94% of Democrats, 46% of Republicans and 71% of Independents found it hypocrtical of the President to be criticizing other men accused of harassment.

The poll also revealed a handful of other shocking statistics: 17 percent of men and 47 percent of women say they have been a victim of sexual

Innocent Woman Attacked By K-9 For ‘Being In The Wrong Place At The Wrong Time’ Files Suit

A Minnesota woman who was taking out her trash was attacked by a police dog on the hunt for two burglary suspects—and now she’s suing the dog’s officer, The Washington Post said.

The 5-year-old police dog, Gabe, was allowed to roam on a 20 foot leash at the time of the September attack, according to body cam footage. As the officers chased down the suspects, Gabe ran past a dumpster and bit the right arm of Desiree Collins, 52, refusing to let go.

“Please,” Collins yelled, according to the footage. “Help me!”

Gabe released Collins after 30 seconds of clenching. “What did I do to him?” Collins asked.

“Nothing,” an officer responded. “Just in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

But Collins is now filing a federal suit against one of the officers, Thaddeus Schmidt, for the incident.

“What you have here is a completely innocent person taking out their garbage … and a

Mom Who Takes Terminally Ill Son To See Santa Gets Shamed For Parking In Handicapped Spot

A Prussia, Pennsylvania mother was shamed for parking in a handicapped parking spot despite having a handicapped hang tag. Nancy Coyne brought her terminally ill 7-year-old son Garrett to a mall to visit Santa Claus. They both returned to the car to see a nasty message scrawled across one of their car’s windows in red lipstick.

“UR Not Handicap [sic]” the note read.

“I can’t believe someone could be so obnoxious and ignorant and rude about a situation that I struggle with daily,” the mother told Fox 29.

Garrett is blind, a side effect of a rare neurological disorder called Batten disease. It’s a condition that typically ends in childhood death.

“There is no cure. There is no treatment,” Nancy told Fox29. “Trying to make memories for my family then this happened. […] It just made me really question society to be honest. Like OK,

Adult Film Actress Commits Suicide After Being Accused Of Homophobia For Not Working With Gay Porn Star

A 23-year-old porn star committed suicide after she was criticized online for a tweet in which she said she wouldn’t do a porn scene with a man who had shot gay porn for her “safety,” Fox News reported.

August Ames, one of the biggest rising stars in the porn industry, died Tuesday due to asphyxiation by hanging, the Ventura County Medical Examiner told The Blast.

“She was the kindest person I ever knew and she meant the world to me,” said her husband, Kevin Moore, to porn trade magazine Adult Video News (AVN). “Please leave this as a private family matter in this difficult time.”

Ames, who had more than 270 onscreen porn credits, had received intense criticism online for a tweet in which she said she wouldn’t have onscreen sex with a man who had done gay porn.

“[Whichever] (lady) performer is replacing me tomorrow for @EroticaXNews, you’re shooting

Emails Show WikiLeaks Offering Trump Campaign Incriminating Documents

An exclusive report from CNN indicates that WikiLeaks had attempted to offer both Donald Trump and Donald Trump Jr. (and other members of the campaign) access to encrypted documents. The offer, which went out in September of 2016, coincides with the Trump family’s tweets about Hillary Clinton’s emails.

Donald Trump Jr. maintains that he has no memory of the exchange with WikiLeaks. He has been questioned about the conversation in a closed door House Intelligence Committee meeting.

The email from WikiLeaks reportedly came from an individual identified as “Mike Erickson,” although who, exactly, that person is (or if he is a real individual) remains unclear. The exchange was turned over to Congress as one of many documents provided by the Trump Organization.

The fact that WikiLeaks knew of both Donald and Donald Jr.’s email accounts has some questioning the regularity of interactions between the Trump Organization and the shadowy website.

The White House has not

Ex-Officer Found Not Guilty Of Murdering Unarmed Dad Who Was Begging For His Life: ‘Please Don’t Kill Me’

An ex-officer has been found not guilty for killing an unarmed dad. According to AZ Central, former Mesa police Officer Philip “Mitch” Brailsford of Maricopa County was determined not guilty of second-degree murder charges.

The charges related to a fatal incident on January 18, 2016 in which 26-year-old Daniel Shaver was confronted by six police officers at a La Quinta Inn Suites hallway. They were attending to call about an armed man at the building. Shaver was reportedly was kneeling, crying and begging not to be shot. The incident was captured on two police on-body cameras. The video is seen below per Daily Mail. It appears that Shaver was confused trying to follow the officers’ instructions. Shaver began to cry and said, “Please don’t shoot me.” He crawled towards the officers and then raised his right hand near his waistband. That’s when Brailsford fired.

Brailsford claimed that he fired his gun five times when he

27-Year-Old Man Accused Of Shooting 16-Year-Old And Leaving Her In A Burning Car After She Threatened To …

A teenage girl was found dead inside a burning car on Monday in Waterbury, Connecticut. Now, the vehicle’s driver is accused of shooting her three times before the car went up in flames.

Bail was set at $3 million for 27-year-old Dominique Pittman during a Wednesday arraignment. “The state alleges the defendant committed a vicious murder of a 16-year-old,” Waterbury State’s Attorney Maureen Platt said during the hearing, according to the Hartford Courant.

That 16-year-old was Evalyce Santiago and according to People, she was shot twice in the head and once in her hand. Police found her inside Pittman’s car, which was up in flames on a home’s lawn after a single-car collision. Also discovered inside the car: a .357-caliber handgun.

Pittman, a father of three, suffered minor injuries in the crash. In court, Platt explained that Pittman “attempted to mislead police, stating a third person was responsible for the murder.”

Mom Of Mentally Ill Man Allegedly Murdered By 3 Dallas Police …

On Thursday, three cops from Dallas, Texas were indicted for the 2016 death of an unarmed man who called 911 for help. Tony Timpa, 32, became anxious after doing cocaine so he called the police for assistance, the Dallas Morning News reports. Within an hour of that phone call, he was dead. Timpa reportedly suffered from schizophrenia.

Now, Sgt. Kevin Mansell, 48, and Officer Danny Vasquez, 32 have been charged with deadly conduct, according to Fox News. The third cop’s name hasn’t been released. He reportedly hasn’t yet surrendered to police. So far the police have only been slammed with misdemeanors. The two who have been idicted have not appeared to enter pleas and they have both been placed on administrative leave.

Although happy with the indictment, Timpa’s mother was hoping for a tougher punishment.
“They need to go to jail,” Vicki Timpa said, adding that she was surprised that they
