Healthy Teenager Dies Suddenly After Mixing McDonald’s and Energy Drink

A healthy 16-year-old boy with no pre-existing heart conditions died after drinking a large Mountain Dew, a McDonald’s latte and an energy drink in the space of two hours.

Davis Cripe, from South Carolina, died when his heart fell out of rhythm at Spring Hill High School on April 26,2017

Coroner Gary Watts confirmed that he was healthy at the time of his death and it was caused by drinking too much caffeine in the two hours before.

Davis’ dad Sean Cripe said to WLTX:

Davis was a great kid, and being his parent was a great honor to Heidi [his mother] and me.

I stand before you as a brokenhearted father and hope that something good can come from this.

Parents, please, talk to your kids about the dangers of these energy drinks.

And teenagers and students, please stop buying them. There’s no reason to consume them they can be very dangerous.

Coroner Watts said:

This is what’s dangerous about this – you can have five people line up and all of them do the exact same thing with him that day, drink more, and it may not have any type of effect on them at all.

It’s not something that just because you drink one drink or three drinks is necessarily going to have this effect on.

The daily recommended caffeine limit for a healthy adult is 400mg per day which amounts to around four cups of coffee or 10 cans of fizzy soda, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Assuming that Davis drank a large latte and energy drink in addition to the large Mountain Dew, he would have ingested about 434mg of caffeine, which is scarily only 34mg more than the recommended limit.

Take care with caffeine, it is a very addictive drug that has been normalized in society.

WATCH: Texas Police Officer Gave a Teenager 200 Push-Ups Instead Of Jail Time For Smoking Pot


A police officer in Arlington, Texas caught a teen smoking weed outside of a movie theatre and instead of arresting him he offered the young man some exercise – okay, a lot of exercises.

The officer, Eric Ballwas, was off-duty at the time when he caught a whiff of something funky. What he discovered was a young man enjoying a joint while his mom was still in the theatre. Instead of arresting him, the officer offered the teen the option of doing 200 push-ups.

“See,” The woman shooting the video can be heard saying, “while we think the police are so bad, they’re not all bad.”

When posted to Reddit the video spawned the sort of hilarity that might be expected. But some Redditors also wondered whether the punishment was too harsh. While others suggested that the officer himself might get in trouble if the video went viral.

The statements given by the police department to local news suggests that Ballwas’ decision to swap punishments was well received by his superiors. CBS News reported that Lt. Christopher Cook said the officer got the inspiration for the punishment from his football coaches who also used to make him do push-ups while the boy’s mother hugged and thanked the officer for going easy her son.

UK: Teenager slashed 7-year-old girl’s throat in playing field ‘to prove she was not a robot’

Katie Rough

    

A teenager who killed a seven-year-old girl in a park has been given a life sentence and ordered to be detained for a minimum of five years by a judge who said it was a ‘truly exceptional case’.

Katie Rough died after she was smothered by the 16-year-old girl, who cannot be named and was 15 at the time, and then slashed with a Stanley knife in a park in York, in January.

The defendant, who admitted manslaughter due to diminished responsibility at a previous hearing, appeared by video-link at Leeds Crown Court as Katie’s family looked on from the jury box.

The teenager sat with her head down, clutching a soft toy, throughout the hearing.

She was flanked on screen by a court usher and a youth team leader who confirmed the girl’s name when she was asked to identify herself by the judge, Mr Justice Soole.

The judge told her: ‘The gravity of the offence of killing a small child speaks for itself.’

He said: ‘The level of danger to the public is high.

‘In the circumstances of your continuing silence, the critical question is whether there is any reliable estimate as to how long that danger will continue.’

Katie was found with severe lacerations to her neck and chest on a field in the Woodthorpe area of York on January 9 and did not respond to frantic attempts to revive her.

But a judge heard earlier this year that she actually died from being smothered by her teenager attacker.

At that earlier hearing, the court heard that the teenager was found standing in a cul-de-sac in a York suburb, covered in blood and carrying a blood-stained Stanley knife as she rang 999 to tell police what she had done.

The judge was told she may have been trying to prove Katie was not a robot as she had ‘irrational beliefs’.

He heard that the girl began suffering from mental health problems more than a year before the killing.

Prosecutors said she had reported delusional thoughts as well as depression, self-harm and suicidal thoughts.

They said the girl had talked of being convinced that people ‘weren’t human and were robots’.

The previous hearing was told that the girl became distressed when one doctor asked her later ‘whether she killed Katie to test whether she was a robot’.

Nicholas Johnson QC, defending, told the last hearing it may be that his client was ‘driven by the irrational belief (Katie) may not have been human and needed proof of this’.

He said the teenager had thoughts that people around her ‘may not be human and may be controlled by a higher and hostile force’.

The barrister said his client had posted a picture on social media two days before the killing with a concerning message.

He said: ‘She was clearly crying out for help and support.’

The girl denied murder but pleaded guilty to manslaughter by diminished responsibility at the hearing in July.

This plea was accepted by the prosecution.

[WATCH] Officers Suspended After Confrontation With Bridgeport Teenager Caught on Camera


BRIDGEPORT – A video going viral on social media shows a confrontation between police and a Bridgeport teenager, and the officers involved have been placed on administrative leave.

Investigators say the encounter shows authorities trying to subdue 18-year-old Aaron Kearney, “after he became agitated and was physically threatening to a female officer.”

Police say Kearney himself called police following a minor car accident and became upset after learning his license had been suspended. A family spokesman says Kearney is a college student who comes from a long line of police officers and many people are outraged by the way he was treated.

Officials say Kearney was charged with breach of peace and assault on a police officer. 
 
In a statement following the incident, Bridgeport Police Chief AJ Perez says, “When it comes to my attention that there are legitimate questions surrounding an officer’s use of force, I place that officer on administrative status. This status removes the officer from contact with the public while the case is investigated. I have taken this step with the officers involved in the incident Friday night following a motor vehicle accident on Seaview Avenue, some of which was filmed on video and posted to social media.”

The statement continues, “In the event that an officer is found to have knowingly and willfully violated policy by using excessive force in the performance of their duties, I will make every effort to see that officer separated from their employment with the Bridgeport Police Department and where applicable arrested and charged with a crime. As the Chief of Police, I have a zero-tolerance policy for abusing the citizens who we are tasked and sworn to protect and serve.”

A Teenager Sued SDPD, and Was Documented as a Gang Member Soon After


This past March, Jamie Wilson received a letter from the San Diego Police Department, notifying her that her 17-year-old son had been added to CalGang, the state’s gang database. It didn’t give reasons — Wilson would have to appeal the decision to find out why he’d been added — but the timing seemed suspect. Only a few weeks earlier, on Feb. 14, the ACLU of San Diego and Imperial Counties had filed a lawsuit on behalf of Wilson and her son, challenging when San Diego police can collect DNA from minors.

“I feel like they are punishing my son for filing this lawsuit,” Wilson said.

The lawsuit stems from a March 30, 2016, incident involving Wilson’s son, a minor referred to as “P.D.” in court documents, and four friends who were leaving the Memorial Park rec center after a basketball game. According to court records, detectives with the Police Department’s gang unit stopped the teens because the day was considered a gang holiday and some of the boys were wearing blue (P.D. was wearing red and blue). The boys, all of whom are black, were detained, handcuffed, questioned and patted down. In a duffel bag P.D. had been carrying, officers found an unloaded gun. According to court records, the gun was registered to one of the boys’ fathers.

The teens were photographed and told to sign a form to allow officers to collect a DNA sample via a cheek swab. P.D. was arrested, taken in for questioning and charged with carrying a concealed weapon. In a video of the interrogation, conducted prior to police notifying Wilson that they’d arrested her son, two detectives tell P.D. he’s an “underperforming person” who came from a “broken home” and attended a school for kids “who fuck up.” He was then taken to juvenile hall where he spent eight days before being placed on house arrest.

WATCH: Teenager Snaps, Crushes Cop Car With Bulldozer During Chase With Police

construction vehicleconstruction vehicle

Kankakee, IL – An extreme joy ride caught on police dash camera revealed a low-speed chase with a bulldozer that eventually crushed a police cruiser when cops attempted to stop the dozer by pulling a vehicle in front of the stolen construction vehicle.

After the Kankakee Police Department initially told WLS-TC that no video of the incident existed, they later relinquished the footage to the station—without explaining why they initially denied there was a video.

Police investigators now say footage of the early morning Aug. 24 incident shows Austin White, 18, engaging in a low-speed chase with police while driving a bulldozer stolen from a construction site.

The comical video footage shows multiple officers chasing the construction vehicle down the street, and includes numerous angles of the chase.

During the chase, one officer had the bright idea to pull his police cruiser in front of the 20-ton bulldozer in an effort to block White’s escape, which resulted in the vehicle being crushed under the construction vehicle.

Officers continued to pursue the construction vehicle for another 12 blocks, as police can be seen attempting to jump onto the dozer.

Eventually, White stopped the vehicle. Immediately, police pulled him from the cab and hit him with a Taser.

Police say that White, who is being charged with driving under the influence of drugs, has never had a driver’s license, and that he is currently being held on six felony charges, including attempted murder, criminal damage to property and theft.

White should consider himself lucky, as one of the most commonly used reasons for justifying police killings is “he or she used their vehicle as a weapon.”

This tactic of American police, to claim their lives were endangered because someone attempted to drive off, has become quite familiar. It is also considerably successful at exonerating killer cops.

Over the past few years, there have been numerous cases in which we’ve seen unarmed individuals, killed while in their vehicles, by fearful trigger-happy cops. One of the most widely covered of those cases is that of Samuel Dubose, who was killed by officer Ray Tensing. Despite the fact that Tensing was in no danger of being run over, he shot and killed the Dubose.

Another tragic case of police killing an unarmed man in a car is that of Zachary Hammond, who was shot in the side and back while trying to flee by vehicle, by an officer attempting to arrest his date for a small amount of marijuana.

In yet another heartbreaking case, a mother concerned about her son’s erratic behavior called authorities in hopes of getting her son a medical evaluation. Instead of medical evaluation, however, her son John Barry, 33, was gunned down as he attempted to back out of a parking space—with officers unloading dozens of rounds into the mentally ill man.

Thankfully, in this case, police showed remarkable restraint, as they likely could have shot and killed White only to be later exonerated.

Furor erupts over killing of teenager as Philippines drugs war escalates

By Erik De Castro and Manuel Mogato

MANILA (Reuters) – The Philippines police came under pressure on Friday to explain the killing of a high-school student after the 17-year-old became one of at least 80 people shot dead this week in an escalation of President Rodrigo Duterte’s ruthless war on drugs.

Television channels aired CCTV footage that showed Kian Loyd Delos Santos being carried by two men to the place where his body was later found, raising doubt about an official report that said he was shot because he fired at police officers first.

Witnesses told the ABS-CBN channel that the teenager did not have a firearm and police officers at the scene handed him a gun, asked him to fire the weapon and run.

National police chief Ronald dela Rosa said that if the Grade 11 student did not pose a threat, the officers who shot him on Thursday night would be held accountable.

“Just think about it, he is just a kid. If that happened to your sibling?” he said on GMA TV. “We will investigate it, I assure you.”

Metro Manila police chief Oscar Albayalde said the three policemen involved had been relieved of their duties and an investigation would be launched into the incident, which took place in the Caloocan district in the northwest of the capital.

Police killed at least 13 people in Manila on the third night of a new push in Duterte’s war on drugs and crime, taking the toll for one of the bloodiest weeks so far to 80, Reuters witnesses and media reported.

Earlier this week, 67 people were gunned down and more than 200 arrested in Manila and provinces adjoining the Philippines capital, in what police described as a “One-Time, Big-Time” push to curb drugs and street crimes.

The term has been used by police to describe a coordinated drive in crime-prone districts, usually slums or low-income neighborhoods, often with additional officers.

The spike in killings drew condemnation from Vice President Leni Robredo, who belongs to a party opposed to Duterte.

Branding it “something to be outraged about”, she has been a constant critic of the crackdown that has killed thousands of Filipinos and caused international alarm since Duterte took office over a year ago.

“NOT THE SOLUTION”

Several senators raised concerns on Friday over the rise in the number of deaths, calling for an impartial investigation.

“Killing the poor and powerless is not the solution to the drug problem when tons of methamphetamine are smuggled in,” Senator Francis Pangilinan said in a statement.

An ally of the president, Senator Jose Victor Ejercito, said he was “worried that these intensified killings are being used by some rogue police officers, knowing that the president will protect them”.

Police say there has been no instruction from higher authorities to step up their anti-drug operations and they are only doing their job.

Duterte indicated this week that the escalation had his blessing, saying it was good that 32 criminals had been killed in a province north of Manila and adding: “Let’s kill another 32 every day. Maybe we can reduce what ails this country.”

On Thursday, he said he would not just pardon police officers who killed drug offenders during the anti-narcotics campaign, but also promote them.

“I don’t think they are simply acting based on the president’s endorsements,” Duterte’s spokesman, Ernesto Abella, told reporters. “It just so happens they are taking active steps in addressing the drug situation in Philippines.”

Critics maintain that members of the Philippine National Police (PNP) are executing suspects and say it is likely they have a hand in thousands of unsolved murders of drug users by mysterious vigilantes. The PNP and government reject that.

Although the violence has been criticized by much of the international community, Filipinos largely support the campaign and domestic opposition to it has been muted.

“Again and again we hear people say it is safer … they appreciate the fact that the Philippines is being made safe again,” Abella said.
