?Embodiment of Evil?: Jayme Closs? Kidnapper Sentenced to Two Life Terms

?Embodiment of Evil?: Jayme Closs? Kidnapper Sentenced to Two Life TermsRichard Tsong-Taatarii/Minneapolis Star Tribune/Pool via REUTERSJayme Closs, the Wisconsin 13-year-old who was kidnapped for over three months in October after her parents were murdered, had a message for the courtroom at her abductor?s Friday sentencing hearing: ?Jake Patterson will never have power over me.?Patterson was sentenced to two consecutive life sentences plus forty years with no possibility of parole on Friday for abducting the teenager on October 15, 2018, and holding her hostage for 88 days after killing her parents at their home in Baron. Before giving Patterson his sentence, Barron County Judge James Babler called the 21-year-old ?the embodiment of evil.??I would do absolutely anything to take back what I did, I would die, absolutely anything to bring them back,? Patterson said on Friday, holding back tears. ?I don?t care about me, I?m just so sorry.?The sentence comes two months after Patterson pleaded guilty to two counts of intentional homicide and one count of kidnapping as part of a deal with the Barron County District Attorney?s Office. ?Last October, Jake Patterson took [my parents] away forever,? Jayme said in a victim statement read by her attorney in court Friday. ?There are some things Jake Patterson can never take away from me. He can?t take away my freedom. I will always have my freedom and he will not?Jake Patterson Pleads Guilty to Kidnapping Jayme Closs, Killing Her ParentsFive other members of Jayme?s family spoke at the hearing, which the teenager did not attend, urging Judge Babler to give Patterson the maximum sentence. Patterson was seen shaking his head from side to side throughout the victim statements. ?Jake Patterson will never have power over me,? Closs said in her statement. ?I feel like I have power over him, because I get to tell the judge what I think should happen to him. He should stay locked up forever.?Jennifer Smith, the teenager?s aunt and legal guardian, said in her victim statement that the family is distraught over the situation and lives in constant fear. ?She lives in fear. She doesn?t have a normal 13-year-old life and that?s all from what you did. It?s heartbreaking. We now live in fear,? Smith said. According to a criminal complaint, Patterson decided Jayme Closs ?was the girl he was going to take? after he saw her boarding a school bus near her home about four hours outside of Madison. To ensure a successful abduction, the complaint said, Patterson wore all-black clothing and put stolen license plates on his car. Closs told police the family dog?s barking woke her up that night, and she went to wake up her parents when she noticed a car coming up the driveway. While her dad went to the door, the complaint states, Jayme and her mom decided to hide in the bathroom.Kidnap Suspect Jake Patterson Allegedly Hid Jayme Closs Under His Bed for Hours at a TimePatterson admitted to first fatally shooting James Closs, the teen?s father, before searching the house for Jayme and her mother, Denise. The 21-year-old then fatally shot Denise in front of Jayme before throwing the teenager in the trunk of his car and driving to his remote home in Gordon, which is about an hour north.?I?m at peace that my brother did not suffer,? Mike Closs, the brother of James Closs, said in his victim statement on Friday. ?But I?m mad as hell he didn?t have a chance. [Denise] didn?t die in vain, she died protecting Jayme.?He held Closs hostage in his cabin for 88 days, often forcing the teen to stay under his bed for hours when he had friends over. To keep her from trying to escape, Patterson warned Closs that ?bad things could happen to her,? if she moved, according to the complaint.On January 10, Patterson told the teenager he was leaving for a few hours. Closs told police she took the rare opportunity to successfully push away the weighted bins that her kidnapper had used to block her under the bed. ?He thought that he could own me, but he was wrong. I was smarter,? Jayme said in her Friday victim statement. ?I watched his routine and took back my freedom. Jake Patterson can never take away my courage. He thought he could control me, but he couldn?t.?Wisconsin Teen Jayme Closs Found Alive: ?The Girl Just Came Out of the Woods?Closs told investigators she escaped wearing a pair of his Nike shoes and began walking aimlessly when she eventually ran into Jeanne Nutter, a social worker who was walking her dog. Nutter immediately recognized the teenager and called the authorities. The teenager is now living with her aunt and uncle. Patterson?s attorney, Charles Glynn, told Judge Babler on Friday that his client has taken responsibility for his crimes and ?severely over reacted to his loneliness.? In a letter to local Minnesota TV station KARE-TV in February, Patterson confessed he had ?huge amounts? of remorse for his crimes and said he he intended to plead guilty so the Closs family would not have to ?worry about a trial.??I can?t believe I did this,? he wrote. ?The cops say I planned this thoroughly, and that I said that...straight up lie. This was mostly on impulse. I don?t think like a serial killer. At the time I was really pissed. I didn?t ?want? to. The reason I did this is complicated.Barron County District Attorney Brian Wrighturged the judge on Friday for the maximum sentence, calling Patterson a ?cold-blooded killer? that will ?find Jayme? if he is ever release from prison. Closs, in her victim statement on Friday, said Patterson?s actions will never stop her from being happy and moving forward while he ?stays locked up forever.? ?I feel like what he did is what a coward would do,? she concluded.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Hezbollah warns US plan could naturalise Palestinian diaspora

Hezbollah warns US plan could naturalise Palestinian diasporaThe head of Lebanon's Shiite movement Hezbollah warned Saturday that a long-delayed US peace plan could see Palestinian refugees permanently settled in host countries across the region. Speaking days after the US announced a May conference in Bahrain to lay out economic aspects of its long-awaited Israeli-Palestinian peace plan, Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah warned of an "ominous deal aimed at eliminating the Palestinian cause". The right of return for more than 700,000 refugees who were expelled or fled during the creation of the State of Israel in the late 1940s -- and their millions of descendants -- is a key pillar of the Palestinian cause.

Eating Way Too Much Rice Almost Doomed Japan's Imperial Navy

Eating Way Too Much Rice Almost Doomed Japan's Imperial NavyAfter the war, the Emergency Beriberi Investigative Committee investigated the disease?s devastation of Japanese ranks. Worried about the composition of the committee and fully aware of Takaki?s success, the emperor stepped in. ?The army?s beriberi problem can be effectively prevented if the army provides a staple of barley and rice,? the emperor stated.In August 1882 in Incheon Bay near Seoul, four Japanese warships were locked in a tense stand-off with two Chinese warships that had brought troops to quell a revolt on the Korean peninsula.On paper, the Japanese flotilla outnumbered the Chinese, but the hulls of the Japanese ships hid a deadly secret. Less than half of their crews could man their stations.The Korean peninsula erupted into conflict on July 23. A soldiers? protest against ill treatment, unpaid wages and poor provisions turned into widespread mutiny. Ousted from power, the former regent of the king set the mutineers upon the government?and against the Japanese advisers working to modernize the Korean army.

Missing yoga teacher found alive two weeks after disappearing in Hawaii forest

Missing yoga teacher found alive two weeks after disappearing in Hawaii forestA yoga instructor who had been missing in a Hawaiian forest for more than two weeks has been found alive.Amanda Eller, 35, was last seen early on the morning of 8 May as she set off on a hike in the Makawao Forest Reserve trail on Maui island.Rescuers found her safe and in remarkably good condition after a helicopter team spotted her waving from the stream bed of a ravine around 5pm on Friday.Ms Eller?s friends and volunteers who joined the 17-day search said she had lost her shoes in the jungle and was suffering from sunburn, but otherwise had no other injuries. The physical therapist had survived on water and local plants, one said.?She was very alert, she knew her father?s phone number, she knew who she was, where she was, knew exactly how long she had been out there,? her friend Chris Berquist told ABC News. ?I?ve never felt something quite that overpowering.?Ms Eller was able to call her father from the helicopter that lifted her out of the ravine and took her to Maui Memorial Hospital to be checked over.The woman?s family ? who had feared she could have been ?intercepted? by someone after she disappeared ? had raised the reward for finding her from $10,000 to $50,000 only hours before she was found.Hundreds of volunteers, including many experienced hikers, had joined the effort to locate the missing yoga teacher ? originally from the US state of Maryland but living and working in Hawaii. Police dogs and drones had been used to scour the forest.Ms Eller was last seen by her boyfriend Benjamin Konkol before she set off on a morning hike without her phone. He told ABC News last week that evidence suggested ?she?s definitely still here, we just haven?t found her yet?.Her mother Julia said: ?I do firmly believe that Amanda is still alive, but occasionally those doubts creep in and I try to dispel them as I can.?Hawaiian authorities also released surveillance footage last week showing Ms Eller at the Ha?iku Post Office and a local store on the morning she went missing. Police found her white Toyota RAV4 in the parking lot of the forest trail soon after she was declared missing.Although it is not yet known how she came to get stuck in the ravine, Mr Berquist said the spot where she was finally found was ?way off the beaten track?.He said: ?She was not injured. She has a little bit of exposure from the sun, a little bit of sunburn. She lost her shoes a few days in. But no injuries.?



Violence and disruption against abortion clinics at highest rates since 1999

Violence and disruption against abortion clinics at highest rates since 1999Violence and disruption against abortion clinics in the US increased to its highest levels since the 1990s last year, a report by the National Abortion Federation has found.The increase in violence was attributed, at least in part, to president Donald Trump and his administration?s rhetoric.The report noted a significant increase in obstruction, vandalism, and trespassing, with 1,135 incidents of trespassing recorded in 2018 - the most since the NAF began tracking the crime in 1999.There were also 3,038 instances of obstruction, a 78 per cent increase compared to the previous year, and nearly 100,000 instances of picketing.?Anti-choice individuals and groups have been emboldened by the rhetoric of president Trump, vice president Pence, and other elected officials and we are seeing this play out in more instances of activities meant to intimidate abortion providers and disrupt patient services,? said Dr Katherine Hancock Ragsdale, who serves as interim president and CEO of NAF.She added: ?Demonising health care providers and women who rely on them for abortion care has become one of the go-to tactics for anti-choice politicians. Those lies have consequences and it is not the anti-choice politicians who are facing those consequences; it is those who are denied abortion care and the providers targeted by threats, harassment, and violence who are. It is time for the demonizing of abortion providers and their patients to end.?Given the political climate and the increase in hate incidents throughout the country, it is more important than ever that law enforcement and prosecutors appropriately respond to anti-abortion criminal activity.?The study did note a decrease in stalking, burglary, assault, and battery against abortion providers.It comes during a fresh wave of anti-abortion legislation such as the Alabama abortion ban, which is currently being contested in a lawsuit from the American Civil Liberties Union and Planned Parenthood, and ?heartbeat bills? which ban elective abortion after a foetal heartbeat is detectable.As a foetal heartbeat is first detectable at six weeks - a point where many pregnant people may not even know they are pregnant - these initiatives are seen as a back-door abortion ban and are also being contested in court. Politicians in support of banning abortion hope these cases will rise to the Supreme Court of the United States and lead to an overturning of Roe V Wade, which set the precedent for elective abortion until the end of the second trimester in the US.
