The NFL heiress who allegedly beat up a man with a $300 glass purse last week after making an alleged anti-semitic remarkhas spoken out, denying claims she called the victim “a jew.”
Jacqueline Kent Cooke, daughter of the former Washington Redskins owner, allegedly attacked 52-year-old Matthew Haberkorn, on New Year’s Eve after eating at Caravaggio, a restaurant located on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
According to Fox News, she is accused of stating, “Hurry up, Jew,” which ignited the violence. Cooke, 29, claims she said no such thing, and instead says she said, “Excuse me, I have to get through.”
Cooke told the New York Post that Haberkorn and his family were taking a “really long time looking for their tickets” in the cloakroom of Caravaggio’s. She claimed that after she said “I have to get through,” Haberkorn’s mother “immediately screamed at the top of her lungs” that Cooke made an

Police are currently searching for Christopher Nicholas Carroll after his daring escape from a Georgia jail. He is being described as dangerous.
According to the New York Daily News, Carroll escaped from a Lamar County jail shortly after midnight on Wednesday. Police say he broke through two walls while correctional officers thought he was taking a shower.
“The jail called me and told me he had escaped out through the shower and then busted a hole in the wall, the outside wall that went to a storage unit,” said Sheriff Brad White. “He was small in statue [sic]. I don’t think an average sized person could have got through the holes and maneuvered the way that he did.”
Reports indicate that Carroll used a metal rod to break the wall, then squeezed through an opening in a small storage area. He then climbed through an opening in a perimeter fence. Carroll left the premises in

A father is fighting for custody of his son after his mother’s arrest for injury to a child. According to KVUE, 8-year-old Christopher Bowen of Dallas has been hospitalized 323 times and undergone 13 major surgeries. He has also received treatments — including hospice care and being confined to a wheelchair— but authorities believe he seems healthy and that the illnesses may have been concocted by his mother, Karen Bowen-Wright.
Investigators believe this may be an incident of Munchausen syndrome by proxy, a psychological disorder in which a caregiver, in this case the mother, invents an illness even though there is no need for medical care.
“They doctor shop and hospital shop,” explained expert Dr. Marc Feldman of people with this disorder. “They often frequent many emergency rooms over a wide geographic area. One doctor may never know that medical procedures or diagnostic tests have already been performed elsewhere, so it

A Florida girl died several months after she was severely injured by drinking boiling water through a straw on a dare from her cousin, The Palm Beach Post reported.
Ki’ari Pope, 8, reportedly told her mother’s partner on Sunday night that she was unable to breathe, and was unresponsive just minutes later.
She was pronounced dead just after midnight on Monday.
Months earlier, Pope had received a tracheotomy after drinking the boiling water. The incident left her with chronic respiratory problems and damaged her ability to speak, according to a GoFundMe for Pope’s funeral expenses.
The girl and her cousin had seen the boiling water dare on a video from YouTube, the GoFundMe said.
Police are investigating allegations of abuse and neglect involving the girl, as well as between the girl’s mother and her partner.
“The loss of this child is truly devastating and our condolences go out to all those who loved her,”

It hasn’t even been a month since Donald Trump lost the popular vote but won the Electoral College, and therefore has stepped us over into the Twilight Zone to become the president-elect of the USA. Eh, you know what? It’s not even a nightmarish other realm. It’s our very real, very current situation—a buildup of fear, selfishness, and just plain ignorance that translated to votes for Donny. And you couldn’t even scream “give him a chance” before he started to add known anti-Semitic and racist members to his cabinet, allowed his daughter to be a part of top-secret meetings and started tweeting about our 1st amendment right to protest.
But hey! The good news is that…the holidays are here. If your family is of the same political viewpoint as you, awesome! You might be able to have a great holiday, one where you talk about what you’re thankful for this year. You might
