  • Son who threw his terminally ill 79-year-old mother to her death spared jail

    A teacher who threw his terminally ill 79-year-old mother to her death from a first-floor balcony spared jail as judge describes it as a "mercy killing".  A "devoted, loving son" who killed his dying mother to end her suffering by dropping her from a first floor fire escape at a care home has been given a suspended jail term. Robert Knight, 53, pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of his 79-year-old mother June at an earlier hearing at Basildon Crown Court. The languages teacher had denied murder and was cleared by a jury. Judge Samantha Leigh, sentencing Knight at Basildon Crown Court on Friday, told him: "You are someone who acted out of love and desperation. "You have been punished enough and you have to live with what you have done." She went on to describe it as a "mercy killing". Knight was sentenced to 24 months in prison suspended for 24 months. The incident happened at Langley Lodge Care Home in Westcliff, Essex, where Mrs Knight was receiving end-of-life care. Credit: EAST NEWS PRESS AGENCY Knight, of The Fairway, Leigh-on-Sea, signed into the care home on the evening of December 10 and lifted his mother out of bed. He dropped her from a fire escape and there was "no planning" involved, the judge said. The judge said: "This is a very sad case - anyone listening to the details of Mrs Knight's illness and her condition couldn't fail to be moved." She added that to "watch someone you love suffer as she was suffering... is truly cruel". The court heard that Mrs Knight had dementia and Alzheimer's disease, and a post-mortem report showed she had a twisted bowel that would have caused her pain. Knight visited her regularly, brushing her hair and cutting her nails, the judge said. She added that a "do not resuscitate" notice was in place at the time and care home staff "didn't think she would survive the night" from December 9 to December 10 last year. "You were convinced that she was suffering and it was more than you could bear," the judge told Knight. "You are described as a devoted, loving son," she added. "This case, I'm sure, was a very finely balanced one as to whether it was in the interest to prosecute in the first place." Michael Levy, mitigating, said Knight had no previous convictions, was remorseful, had admitted manslaughter and had spent more than nine months in custody while criminal proceedings were under way. Knight was ordered to complete 60 days of rehabilitation as part of his sentence, before he walked free from court.

  • ‘The View’ Blows Up Over Meghan McCain’s Confusing Whistleblower Claim: ‘Don’t Scream at Me!’

    Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Things got heated yet again on The View when Meghan McCain and [insert sparring co-host du jour’s name] got into it, causing McCain to huff and pout.Leading off Friday’s broadcast of ABC’s gabfest by discussing the revelations that the whistleblower’s complaint against Trump involves Ukraine, McCain eventually derailed the conversation by trying to make some kind of point about WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.Referencing her contentious exchange with Assange’s girlfriend Pam Anderson earlier this month, the conservative co-host grumbled that there are liberals who were fine with Assange’s leaks but are “screaming bloody murder right now about this whistleblower.” “I think all interference from a foreign country in our election, all of it is bad and should be condemned and you can’t play party politics with this, and there’s a lot of people on the left who are doing that with Julian Assange,” she exclaimed. “I’m mad there are people on the left that think that Julian Assange is OK.”The rest of the panel, understandably, was confused over what exactly McCain was talking about or arguing, causing the former Fox News personality to grow more frustrated. “You’re saying, Meghan, the people are against this whistleblower?” Sunny Hostin wondered, obviously seeking some clarity.“A lot of people are OK with what Julian Assange did—I’m sorry, are OK with what Julian Assange did, and not OK with this whistleblower,” she replied. “There are a lot of people in this country, and a lot of people in the hard left that defend Julian Assange.”As the panel broke down, McCain’s close friend Abby Huntsman jumped in to throw her colleague a lifeline, claiming McCain was saying that what Assange did is “just as dangerous as what the president is being charged with doing or people are assuming that he did.”The hosts again began talking over each other, prompting McCain to shout: “Excuse me, maybe I was clumsy in the way that I said it!”Co-host Ana Navarro, meanwhile, stared back while McCain added: “I don’t know what you just said.”“I said, don’t scream at me. I’m two feet away,” Navarro fired back, causing the audience to let out a loud “Oooo!”McCain, naturally, grumbled while she shot Navarro a death glare as liberal co-host Joy Behar quickly handed it off to a commercial break.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

  • Candace Owens to Congress: ‘White Supremacy and White Nationalism Is Not a Problem’

    Five months after far-right pundit Candace Owens told Congress that the rise in hate crimes is “fake” and the GOP’s Southern Strategy was “a myth,” Republicans once again invited her to testify before a subcommittee on combating white supremacy. This time around, the conservative provocateur straight-up dismissed the notion that white nationalism is a problem.Early on in Friday’s hearing before the House Oversight Joint Subcommittee, Owens—who late last year said Adolf Hitler was “OK” before he tried to go global—downplayed the threat of white supremacy in the United States, calling it nothing more than a fringe issue. (Reminder: The El Paso mass shooting was less than two months ago.)“If we’re going to have a hearing on white supremacy, we are assuming that the biggest victims of that are minority Americans,” Owens stated. “And presumably this hearing would be to stop that and preserve the lives of minority Americans. Which based on the hierarchy of what’s impacting minority Americans, if I had to make a list of 100 things, white nationalism would not make the list.”Owens, meanwhile, went on to tally off a number of culture war issues that she felt were much more urgent for African Americans, such as black-on-black crime, abortion, and the left’s so-called war against men and masculinity.Later on in the hearing, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH)—who was a late arrival—ceded all of his time to Owens, who had largely been ignored by Democrats throughout the bulk of the proceedings. The former Turning Point USA communications director claimed she was being passed over because she was speaking truth to power that the issues of racism and white supremacy were overblown and being used for political purposes by Democrats.“I also found it quite hilarious that when asked for actual numbers, nobody here could actually provide them because it’s not actually a problem  in America or a major problem that’s facing Black America,” she declared.“White supremacy and white nationalism is not a problem that is harming Black America,” Owens added before calling on the African American community to start “putting fathers back in the home” and demanding a return to “God, religion and shrinking government.”The conservative commentator insisting that white nationalism isn’t a real problem in America echoes Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s infamous assertion last month that white supremacy is “a hoax,” a claim the right-wing star made just days after a suspected mass shooter deliberately targeted Mexicans.Furthermore, in a Fox News appearance in June, Owens said that African Americans were better off under Jim Crow laws and before the passage of the Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?
