Another Climate Scam – Money Intended for "Climate"
Goes to "Union Boost"

SACRAMENTO, CA (Miami Herald) — California lawmakers gave a boost to a union looking to organize Tesla workers Friday as they approved a plan to spend $1.5 billion on environmental initiatives using money from the state's recently renewed program that charges polluters to emit greenhouse gases.

The spending is outlined in two bills now heading to Gov. Jerry Brown's desk after they were approved on the last day of the legislative year, which wrapped up about 2:15 a.m. Saturday.

Much of the environmental money will go toward pay for incentives and rebates to promote a cleaner vehicle fleet, including passenger cars, commercial trucks and port equipment.

Up to $140 million is earmarked for rebates for people who buy clean vehicles, but that money comes with a catch. Under a provision requested by a labor union, state officials will have to certify that participating automakers are "fair and responsible in the treatment of their workers."

 High Schoolers Forced To Lay In Dark Room, Wrists Bound As 'Slavery Project'

CERRITOS (CBS-LA) — Students tied up? Staff acting as slave ship captains?

As KCAL9/CBS2's Michele Gile reports, a high school in Cerritos is under fire after a controversial student history project about slavery.

Whitney High School junior Timothy Reyes had his hands taped together and was a part of a slave ship reenactment when he was an 8th grader on the Cerritos campus.

A mother complained recently after getting an email from her son's teacher explaining the "unique classroom activity," which was to be a surprise.

Staff would act as slave ship captains, the email described, and the children slaves.

After lining the kids up, the note said, they'd "use masking tape to 'tie' their wrists together, make them lay on the ground, and in a dark room have them watch a clip from the film 'Roots.' "

Jihadi Bomb Kit Like One Used For Manchester Arena Terror Attack Bought On Amazon For £95

(Sun) — Amazon has been labeled "the terrorist's best friend" after selling all the parts required to build a deadly nail bomb – without proper security checks.

The ingredients, which could make an IED like the one that killed 22 people at the Manchester Arena, were purchased by The Sun in a single order for £95. Amazon did nothing to halt the purchase or alert officials.

Tory MP Alec Shelbrooke said: "It shows once again that internet firms aren't playing by the rules. I would go as far as to say that Amazon is aiding and abetting terrorism."

The Sun has decided not to detail the components for the "Mother of Satan"-style IED in full.

Similar bombs, with a TATP explosive favored by ISIS, were used in attacks at Parsons Green Tube station and the Manchester Arena

 8-Year-Old Football Team Kneels During Anthem

BELLEVILLE, Ill. (Fox2 News) — Every player on the Cahokia Quarterback Club football team (8 and under) took a knee during the national anthem ahead of Sunday's game at Little Devil's Field in Belleville.

"One of the kids asked me if I saw (people) protesting and rioting in St. Louis. I said yes; I said, 'Do you know why they are doing it?'" said Coach Orlando Gooden.

Coach Gooden said his player responded, "Because black people are getting killed and nobody's going to jail."

Gooden, who played football at Mizzou, said the kids knew about the Jason Stockley decision.

"I felt like it was a good teaching moment for me to circle the team and have a meeting," he said.
The coach said he spoke to them about that and other situations that have happened in our country.

Drone Hits Army Chopper Over NYC

NEW YORK (CBS-NY) — A drone hit a U.S. Army helicopter flying over New York City on Thursday evening.

Two Blackhawks with the 82nd Airborne out of Fort Bragg, North Carolina were in the city on duty for the United Nations General Assembly, WCBS 880's Alex Silverman reported.

The Army said the choppers were flying low along the east shore of Staten Island when a drone slammed into the side of one of them.

They were able to continue on and land at Linden Airport, where WCBS 880's Tom Kaminski took a look at the damage.

"As that drone came apart, a piece of it was actually found upon landing up on the transmission deck, right at the bottom of the main rotor system," he said. "Which is very distressing that something would be able to get in there. And that has always been the thing that we worry about constantly."

 Mayoral Candidate, Bouncy House Scion Accused Of Masturbating On Uber Ride

(NY Post) — A Democratic candidate for mayor in New Orleans allegedly masturbated during an Uber ride in California earlier this year, authorities said.

A female driver allegedly caught Frank Scurlock, who has campaigned calling for a "safer" New Orleans, pleasuring himself on a trip to a West Hollywood hotel on Feb. 10, Santa Monica Chief Deputy City Attorney Terry White told The Advocate.
Scurlock – known locally for his slogan to “Make New Orleans Fun Again” – is scheduled to be arraigned in Los Angeles Criminal Court on Oct. 16, two days after the mayoral primary in New Orleans.

The female Uber driver reported to police that she was transporting Scurlock on a highway near Santa Monica when she heard noises coming from the back seat. The driver then stopped the car and opened the passenger car door where Scurlock was sitting and found him with his erect penis in his hand, White said.

Police Search For 'Mad Pooper' Who Dumps And Runs

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) — Police are searching for a woman who has been seen repeatedly defecating in a neighborhood while out running. Cathy Budde says her kids saw the woman mid-squat and came running back in the house to tell her.

"They are like, 'There's a lady taking a poop!' So I come outside, and I'm like … 'are you serious?'" Budde said to the runner. "'Are you really taking a poop right here in front of my kids?!' She's like, 'Yeah, sorry!'"

Budde says the runner is doing it in her neighborhood at least once a week for the last seven weeks, so they nicknamed her "The Mad Pooper."

"Two other times we've caught her – caught her yesterday – she changed up her time a little bit because she knew I was watching."

Now the Colorado Springs Police Department is involved, and say the runner could face charges of indecent exposure and public defecation.
