Head, Memes, and Video Games: 9-Year-Old Fatally Shoots 13-Year-Old Sister Over Video Game Controller; Officials Unsure If Charges Will Be Pressed @balleralert CB. 9-Year-Old Fatally Shoots 13-Year-Old Sister Over Video Game Controller; Officials Unsure If Charges Will Be Pressed - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Saturday, tragedy struck in Monroe County, Mississippi, when a 13-year-old girl was shot and killed by her 9-year-old brother over a video game. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to USA Today, the incident occurred after the young girl refused to give up a video game controller when her brother wanted it. As a result, officials say the young boy grabbed a gun and shot his sister in the back of the head, as the bullet pierced her brain. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The teenage girl was rushed to a local hospital, where she later died. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “He’s just 9. I assume he’s seen this on video games or TV,” Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell said. “I don’t know if he knew exactly what this would do. I can’t answer that. I do know it’s a tragedy.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “This is all new ground for us, we’ve never dealt with a kid shooting a kid at age 9,” Cantrell said. “We don’t know yet what kind of charges or if charges will be pressed. We want to make sure we’re doing everything correctly.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “That’s why I’m not too fast to say anything because there are juveniles involved. We want to do what’s right and we’re going to get it right.”

Anaconda, Animals, and Cats: California Couple Arrested for Forcing Their Children to Live in Plvwood Box for Almost Five Years @balleralert California Couple Arrested for Forcing Their Children to Live in Plywood Box for Almost Five Years - blogged by: @ashleytearra ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ An older California couple has been arrested on child cruelty charges for forcing their three children to live in a plywood box for the last four years, the New York Post reports. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Thursday, Mona Kirk and Daniel Panico were taken to the Morongo Basin Jail, after sheriff deputies discovered the children’s unbelievable living conditions during a property check-in Joshua Tree—which is 130 miles east of Los Angeles. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to officials, a large, rectangular box—standing approximately 4-feet high and 10-feet wide, with about 20 feet of space from end to end, was spotted near an abandoned caravan that held about 40 roaming cats and loads of trash and feces. The feces were said to be from both humans and animals. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The land surrounding the box and travel camper was filled with old junk and broken toys. A recent press release stated that the victims—ages 11, 13, and 14, were also found to have an “inadequate amount of food” in the “unsuitable and unsafe environment.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They are now in Children and Family Services’ custody. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Kirk, 51, and Panico, 73, have a bail set at $100,000.

Apparently, Children, and Memes: 11-Year Old Wearing Earbuds and On Cellphone Killed By Amtrak Train While Crossing TrackS@balleraler 11-Year Old Wearing Earbuds and On Cellphone Killed By Amtrak Train While Crossing Tracks - blogged by @peachkyss ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ An 11-year-old of Haines City, Florida was struck and killed by an Amtrak Train as she returned from getting soda and snacks for her and her brother. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, Yazmin Smith had earbuds in her ears and was looking at her cellphone as she walked towards the tracks. The train was traveling 68 mph. The conductor told investigators that he blew the horn for about a quarter of a mile while trying to stop the train. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Yazmin walked up and over the tracks with her earbuds in and never, ever, ever heard the train until the absolute last second, when she looked up and it was too late,” Judd said. “She tried to jump off the tracks, and she died as a result of being hit by the train.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yazmin was a fifth grader at Davenport School of the Arts, who was home with her 9-year- old brother that day. Smith’s brother was home napping when she decided to go to for snacks. The children’s mother was on her way home from work at the time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to investigators, the earbuds have not been evaluated yet. “If you have noise-canceling earbuds, plus you have your favorite music in your ears, the end result is what, apparently, at this point in the investigation, we saw,” Judd said. “She never heard the train.”

Christmas, Drugs, and Jail: Cannabis Kringle: Elderly Couple Arrested With 60 Pounds Of Weed They Planned To Give Out As Christmas Gifts @balleralert SHERIFF 17015229, Cannabis Kringle: Elderly Couple Arrested With 60 Pounds Of Weed They Planned To Give Out As Christmas Gifts – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Tuesday, an elderly couple was on their way to Boston and Vermont when York County, Nebraska officials stopped them in their tracks for failing to signal. During the stop, officials smelled marijuana and asked to search the vehicle. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Upon the search, 80-year-old Patrick Jiron agreed and admitted to having the illegal substance in his car. As officials conducted the authorized search, deputies found 60 pounds of weed in the pickup topper, with multiple containers of concentrated THC, all worth more than $300,000. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, the couple was traveling from northern California, attempting to deliver the marijuana for Christmas presents. But now, the couple faces felony possession charges, as they had no drug tax stamp, which is required in Nebraska to deal drugs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The two were arrested on Interstate 80 and cited on charges on possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver and of lacking a drug tax stamp. According to reports, while Jiron is being held in the York County jail, his 83-year-old wife has been cited but not locked up, “due to some medical issues.”

Community, Family, and Memes: Two Teens Plot a Columbine-similar Attack Against a High School Near Atlanta @balleralert Two Teens Plot a Columbine-similar Attack Against a High School Near Atlanta-blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Authorities are saying two teens' plans to attack a high school are similar to that of the 1999 Columbine High School mass shooting that happened in Colorado. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 17-year-olds, Alfred Dupree and Victoria McCurley are being charged with criminal attempt to commit murder for making threats against EtowahHighSchool and its staff, said Cherokee County sheriff’s Sgt. Marianne Kelley to reporters. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At a news conference Cherokee County Sheriff Frank Reynolds said, "I talked to the detective earlier and I asked him, I said ‘what would you describe this as’ and he indicated that this would have been a Columbine-type incident in his opinion." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A community leader tipped off investigators about some of Dupree's journal entries that support charges against the duo. Kelley visited Dupree's family on Monday in regards to the incident. After reading the entries, authorities were led to McCurley. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "They had detailed plans of what they wanted to do and how they wanted to carry it out," Reynolds said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It all came together once officials did a search of homes in which they found firearms, some type of powdered substance and a flammable device. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Authorities are still questioning what the motive was behind their plans but she feels mental health may be the issue. Both teens were evaluated before being arrested and charged. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It was determined that the two would be denied bond after their court appearance on Thursday. Etowah High is just 30 miles from the city of Atlanta.
