Lois Riess Busted After Tip From Restaurant Manager Who Recognized Her Hair

The man who recognized the alleged “killer grandma,” who was wanted to the murders of her husband and a woman she resembled, told Inside Edition her silver hair gave her identity away.

George Higginbotham said he recognized Lois Riess when on Thursday she walked into Dirty Al’s, the restaurant he manages on South Padre Island, a popular vacation spot in Texas.

“She came in; she asked to see the menu,” he said. 

Higginbotham first noticed Riess’ silver hair from reports about the nationwide hunt for her on “CBS This Morning.” 

“We were very lucky to notice her white hair. She liked to throw it back with her left arm and all,” he told reporters. 

He called police, but Riess had already left by the time authorities arrived.

“She turned around and walked out,” Higginbotham said.

South Padre Police Chief Randy Smith said his officers missed Riess by a few minutes, but quickly caught up to her. Riess was captured that night at Sea Ranch Restaurant, another local eatery in the beach resort community located just 27 miles from the Mexico border.

“She seemed to have let her guard down a little bit,” Smith said. “By the time she realized what was going on, I believe it was out of her control.”

Riess had been staying in a $59-a-night room at a Motel 6. She had apparently befriended two other people on the island and were with them at the time of her arrest, police said.

Riess is accused of fatally shooting her husband, David Riess, in their Minnesota home last month before fleeing with $11,000 from his bank account to pay for her alleged gambling addiction, police said.

Newly released surveillance footage showed Riess buying a sandwich at an Iowa convenience store. There, she can be heard asking for the quickest route south.

“If you wanted to start heading south, would you take 35 south?” Riess says. “Just to keep going on down to the next state?”

She traveled to Fort Myers, Fla., where she allegedly befriended and fatally shot Pam Hutchinson. 

Hutchinson resembled Riess, who police said stole the victim’s identity and car. 

She drove across Louisiana to Texas, spending five weeks on the run before she was caught on Thursday. 

Hutchinson’s cousins told Inside Edition they were relieved their loved one’s alleged killer was finally behind bars.

“The American people are safe,” one cousin said. “She’s not going to have a chance to kill again and keep this going.”

2 Florida Deputies Shot Dead While Eating At Chinese Restaurant

Two deputies were killed when a man shot at them through a window while they were eating at a Chinese restaurant in Trenton, Florida, on Thursday afternoon.

A gunman walked up to Ace China Restaurant and shot at Sgt. Noel Ramirez, 30, and Deputy Taylor Lindsay, 25, about 3 p.m., according to the Gilchrist County Sheriff’s Office, where the deputies worked.

The adult male gunman was found dead outside the restaurant, Sheriff Robert D. Schultz said during a news conference. Officials did not release the man’s identity or cause of death.

Investigators do not know what the shooter’s motive was, and Schultz said there are no “indications as to why this tragedy occurred.”

Schultz called the gunman a “coward” and told reporters, “I do not have answers as to why this happened.”

“The world is full of cowards and the world is full of heroes,” Schultz added. “We need to highlight those heroes and what they gave.”

Schultz also suggested that the shooting may have occurred because of an animosity for police officers.

“What do you expect to happen when you demonize law enforcement to the extent that it’s been demonized?” Schultz said during the news conference.

Ramirez, a seven-year veteran of the department, was married and had children, according to officials. Lindsey joined the department two years ago and had a girlfriend.

Ramirez and Lindsey were “the best of the best,” Schultz said. “They were men of integrity, men of loyalty. They’re God-fearing and they loved what they did. They gave their lives so that we can all be safe.”

Trenton is a small city 50 miles west of Gainesville, with a population of 2,315, according to the latest available census data

Florida Gov. Rick Scott said in a statement that he and his wife “are heartbroken” over the deputies’ deaths.

“It is true evil for anyone to hurt a law enforcement officer, and in Florida, we have zero tolerance for violence, especially against the police.”

President Donald Trump offered his condolences in a tweet.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating the shooting.

Restaurant Patrons Fight Back Against Cop As He Savagely Beats Autistic 12 Year Old Girl “UFC-Style”

A Texas deputy has been fired and charged with multiple crimes after a nightmarish scene unfolded at a barbecue restaurant earlier this month. Restaurant patrons reacted first with shock and then with violence as deputy Jack Danford—unprovoked—attacked an innocent 12-year-old girl with autism as she reached down to pet a puppy.

According to court documents, Danford was in the restaurant the evening of March 3 and was bragging that he’d been drinking all day.

“It was about 7:30,” said Russell Cope, the victim’s stepdad. Cope was at the restaurant to deliver firewood that night and had brought along his girlfriend and her 12-year-old daughter Megan.

Cope explained that he had also brought along their puppy and when Megan bent down to pet the little dog, that’s when Danford, who was sitting at a nearby table outside, snapped.

“I seen him on top of her, he was hammer fisting her, it was like UFC style,” Cope said.

When the punching began, bystanders were in awe and couldn’t believe what they were witnessing. However, their fight or flight mode quickly kicked in and restaurant patrons then began trying to pry Danford off the little girl.

“Two witnesses tried to pull him off of the girl. It didn’t work,” Cope explained.

After trying to pull him off didn’t work, Cope said he began punching the crazed cop in the face, but that didn’t work either.

As FOX 26 reports, Cope ran to the patio and attempted to punch Danford in the face, but he told police it didn’t phase the former deputy. That’s when Cope kicked Danford with his steel-toed boot in the head and Danford finally rolled off the victim and appeared unconscious, according to court documents.

“I stepped back and I kicked him in the head with my boot and knocked him out,” Danford said.

After Cope and the other patrons finally got the deputy off the little girl she was brought to the hospital where she was treated for multiple cuts, bruises and abrasions and a pulled muscle.

“I was like screaming, and saying help and all that,” said the victim.

Cope explained to FOX 19 that the girl is now emotionally traumatized and is scared to be by herself or even go out in public.

“Every time we go out to eat somewhere else, she won’t go get food without somebody going with her. She won’t go to the restroom without someone going with her,” Cope explained.

Once they got the girl away from Danford, things got even more violent once police showed up to arrest the crazed cop.

According to court documents, as FOX 7 notes, the Austin police officers found Danford sitting on the ground, with a strong odor of alcohol, claiming to be drugged. When the officers tried to get Danford’s ID from his back pocket, he allegedly grabbed an officer’s wrist, and they fell to the ground. To break free, the officers said they had to punch Danford in the back and use an impact weapon.

Prior to being arrested for beating the little girl, Danford was charged with public intoxication and resisting arrest during the altercation after the beating. He was fired by the Williamson County Sheriff’s Department earlier this month and subsequently charged with Injury to a Child, a third-degree felony after the police investigation revealed the insane beating that took place prior to officers showing up on the scene.

If convicted of the charges, Danford faces no less than two years behind bars and the possibility of up to ten.

21-Year-Old Launches Vegan Restaurant To Prove Healthy Food Isn’t Just For The Rich


By  Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

Most people are aware they need to eat healthier. The problem is, superfood beverages and to-go salads are expensive. For those who don’t have $20 to spend on a Whole Foods salad or $10 to splurge on a juice, nutrient-dense meals can be hard to come by. That’s why 21-year-old  Francesca “Sol” Chaney founded Sol Sip, a vegan restaurant that is affordable and healthy.

The full-time student is on a mission to provide delicious and nutritious food to the inner-city community in Brooklyn. As a city dweller, she has worked three jobs. So, she can relate to the struggles many people face when looking for food.

The entrepreneur believes many people want to eat healthy, but can’t due to their fixed incomes. “The wellness community can be really classist,” Chaney told Essence. “Our intention [with Sol Sips] is to make organic plant-based beverage and bites available to everyone,” Chaney added.

The 21-year-old has been incorporating wellness practices into her life for years. Not only has she worked at an apothecary and wellness center, she has been a full-spectrum doula for the past three years. “In many Black, Indigenous and Eastern communities it’s a tradition to meditate, grow your own food, create medicinal concoctions and facilitating healing rituals, yet many of the same communities have been ostracized for a very long time,” said Chaney.

Most of the items at Sol Sip are made with four ingredients are less. The simplicity reduces costs and ensures healthiness. At present, the restaurant offers a monthly sliding scale brunch. A full meal with a beverage costs between $7-$15. “My mission to help close the accessibility gap in wellness,” said Chaney.

The young, black entrepreneur says her greatest challenge has been securing funding to expand Sol Sips. “I’m also challenged with finding innovative ways to grow my community through my business in a way where it’s a win/win for the business and my community,” she said.

While these are deterrents, Chaney is more determined than ever. “I look forward to launching our farm-to-table initiative and creating a Sol Sips internship program for Black and brown girls in East NY, Brownsville, Bushwick and Bedstuy,” she said.

If you would like to support Chaney’s vision and help close the accessibility gap in wellness, consider donating to the GoFundMe for Sol Sips. You can find Sol Sips at 203 Wilson Ave in Brooklyn, New York.

Restaurant Patrons Fight Back Against Cop As He Savagely Beats Autistic 12yo Girl “UFC-Style”

New Orleans restaurant announces "white privilege tax" to charge white customers more money for the same food


Image: New Orleans restaurant announces “white privilege tax” to charge white customers more money for the same food

(Natural News)
If you’re ever in New Orleans looking for a bite to eat, you’ll want to avoid a controversial pop-up restaurant known as SAARTJ whose racist black owner has decided that he’s going to make a political statement about “white privilege” by charging all white customers more money than black customers for the exact same food.

Run by local Nigerian chef Tunde Wey, SAARTJ recently announced plans to implement an $18 surcharge on every meal that it sells to white customers, while all of the restaurant’s black customers will get a discounted rate for their meals. It’s all part of Wey’s personal crusade to stick it to the white man in retaliation for what he sees as racial wealth inequality throughout American society.

In speaking to Civil Eats about the racist move, Wey tried to justify it by claiming that the “racial wealth gap” necessitates charging people different prices depending on the color of their skin. In order to not be sued, Wey is making the program “optional,” but it will be strongly encouraged that white people who walk up to the window fork over extra cash to compensate for how hard black people have apparently had it because of white people.

Wey says that he plans to keep the extra $18 paid by white customers for their meals, unless black customers choose to collect it for themselves when they buy theirs. It’s Wey’s way of helping to perpetuate the type of wealth distribution that he believes is necessary in American society, even despite the fact that millions of black people already receive the benefits of wealth distribution through EBT and food stamp programs.

“White customers can either pay $12 for lunch or the suggested price of $30,” Wey explained during his speech. “Black customers are charged $12 and also given the option to collect the $18 paid by a white patron as a way to redistribute wealth.”

The politicization of food to foment racial division: Leftist lunacy in action

To Wey, the making of food seems to be more about pushing an agenda, not feeding people. His 15-minute spiel to Civil Eats was bookended by his emphasis on using food “to explore issues of race, class, and justice,” to quote the news outlet’s own takeaway.

In other words, it isn’t really about cooking quality meals for hungry people in order to sate his customers. Wey is more interested in spreading racial animosity and divide by pulling political stunts on the national stage, which he apparently believes is a good use of his time in this world.

The whole thing represents little more than anti-white racism, similar to how blacks were once told that they couldn’t use the same drinking fountains, or ride in the same spot on the bus, as whites. Wey even admits that, during this “experiment,” he’s used pressure to guilt-trip whites into paying the extra fee for their food – and most of them comply.

According to reports, nearly 80 percent of white customers at SAARTJ have chosen to pay the extra fee because they feel bad not doing so. Wey refers to these feelings of coercion that his operation is levying on whites as “positive social pressure,” and he believes that it’s a beneficial thing for promoting “change” in society.

“Refusing to pay more comes off as anti-social and people don’t want to be judged for that,” Wey gloated, apparently satisfied with his flagrant racism. “People look on the other side of the till and see me standing there and they’re thinking that I’m judging them. If they couldn’t pay a higher amount, they gave me a list of caveats why they couldn’t.”

When some black customers offered to pay the higher amount as well, Wey reportedly insisted that “it wasn’t necessary for them.”

Man ‘mutilated & scalped’ in Paris restaurant by assailants was armed with a machete and saber

A man armed with a machete.

    

A 35-year-old man of Sri Lankan origin has suffered horrific injuries to his head and arm after two assailants, armed with a machete and a saber, stormed an Indian restaurant in Paris’ 10th arrondissement.

The gruesome attack, the scene of which both assailants managed to flee, took place on Monday night in the French capital, according to local media reports. The 10th arrondissement is home to a large South Asian community.

Horrified witnesses described two hooded men, reportedly armed with a saber and a machete, storming the venue. They rushed towards one of the diners, a 35-year-old man from the Sri Lankan community who was having dinner with his wife.

The victim suffered severe cuts to his elbow, wrist and head in what amounted to a scalping, French media reported. He was rushed to hospital in a critical condition and was still fighting for his life on Tuesday, according to AFP.

“He was scalped and had his arm and wrist severely cut,” a source close to the case said, according to Le Point. Authorities launched a manhunt for the suspects, who were allegedly “settling scores in the Sri Lankan community.”

Vegan terrorists smash French restaurant in night attack



 


A meat-focused restaurant in the in Alpine city of Grenoble, southeast France, has been trashed by a mystery vandal, with the words “Vegan Terror” left scrawled across it, local media reports.

The staff of the La Boucherie (The Butchery) restaurant in Grenoble woke up to an ugly sight on Monday morning, after the unknown saboteur went to work on the front of the building. Fourteen windows were smashed and the words “Vegan Terror” painted on with black letters. Police have described the suspect as masked, hooded and dressed in black, TV channel France 3 reports.

The managers of the restaurant have called the crime “ignoble” but don’t believe militant vegans are behind it. Instead they feel that the motive is “jealousy”. The police investigation is ongoing.

While vegan campaigners for the most part abhor violence, there have been reports of farmers in the UK finding themselves at the receiving end of threats and harassment from militant activists.

In India, anti-meat activism has taken a much more brutal turn, with mostly Muslim butchers being intimidated out of their livelihoods by right-wing Hindu nationalists, who consider cows to be sacred and their slaughter, as well as that of other animals, to be sacrilege. In some cases, Muslims accused of being in possession of beef have even been lynched.

Restaurant “La Boucherie” vandalisé à Grenoble : les gérants de l’établissement ont du mal à croire à la “piste végan”…

World Renowned Chef Opens 5 Star Restaurant To Feed The Homeless & Fight Food Waste



Next Story

Finally, thanks to the internet we are becoming aware of just how much food is being wasted on a regular basis. Supermarkets are throwing out astronomical amounts of unsold food that is actually perfectly fine to eat. When the amount of homeless people who don’t always have access to food, and the many families that are struggling every day to put food on the table to feed their children, is this really the option that we have come up with? To simply throw the food in the garbage because it cannot turn a profit?

In the U.S. alone, $165 Billion is wasted on food every. Single. Year. When the UN estimates that solving the world’s hunger problem would cost a measly $30 billion in comparison, we can clearly see that something is very wrong here. The unsold food from the supermarkets might not be the answer to solving world hunger, but it certainly paints a picture of where our priorities are, and at least shows us that this has to change. Two men were arrested in the United States in 2016 for taking this food and trying to feed the hungry.

Thankfully, as awareness towards this issue continues to be raised we are seeing a number of groups organizations and even countries doing something about it. France has made it illegal for supermarkets to throw away unsold food, forcing them to find other, more beneficial options for their perfectly fine food. Others are taking that food that would otherwise be garbage and feeding the hungry.

World renowned chef, Mossimo Bottura, for example has opened up a 5 star restaurant called Refettorio Ambrosiano in Milan, Italy in 2015 that accepts donations of unsold food from supermarkets and utilizes volunteer work from professional chefs who want to donate their time to help feed the poor and hungry. Why should the homeless people only be fed soup when there is so much more food available that would otherwise be thrown out? These chefs prepare gourmet meals and the guests are served rather than having to wait in line. Bottura says this is as much about treating those less fortunate with dignity as it is about feeding them. Check it out!

Refettorio Ambrosiano has served more than 16,000 meals, and saved 25 tons of food surplus from the landfills. As Bottura says, this is a revolutionary idea! Hopefully other chefs and restaurateurs will be inspired to follow suit and encourage their local supermarkets to donate to initiatives such as these.

Check out Bottura’s book of recipes Il Pane E Oro, here, and donate to this cause to end food waste and feed the hungry.
