House of horrors for 13 siblings: Yahoo Newsroom reacts

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 17:01:00 -0500

(image) “No punishment in the world will make up for the damage done to these children.” “This sounds like something out of a horror movie.” The chilling details of 13 siblings who suffered alleged torture in their home and the news of their parents’ arrest have rattled Yahoo Newsroom and the world. An investigation is underway after 13 siblings -- ages 2 to 29 -- were allegedly held captive in their Perris, Calif. home by parents David Allen and Louisa Anna Turpin. According to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, some were "shackled to their beds with chains and padlocks," malnourished and abused. One of the siblings, a 17-year-old girl so frail that officials say she looked 10 years old, escaped to lead authorities to a home where they were discovered living in foul-smelling conditions. Among the many questions, some perhaps never to be answered: How could this go undetected for so long? One reader writes, “This is why we need nosey neighbors, people paying attention to their neighborhood.” What is your reaction, what are your questions about the story?

Sweden sends leaflets to 5m homes on how to prepare for war with Russia

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 07:23:19 -0500

(image) Sweden is preparing to issue a public information manual on what to do in the event of war, as debate in the country grows over how to deal with the threat from Russia. The brochure, due to be sent to 4.7m households, will inform the public how they can take part in “total defence” during a war and secure water, food and heating. The booklet with the working title If Crisis or War Comes will also give guidance on dealing with threats from cyber attacks, terrorism and climate change, the FT reported. Russia’s annexation of Crimea and military support for Ukrainian separatists, along with increased activity and exercises near the Baltics and Scandinavia have caused deep unease in Sweden. The neutral country has begun to reverse deep post war defence cuts and incursions by Russian planes and submarines have sparked intense public debate over whether to join Nato. Sweden has seen debate over whether to join Nato Credit:  Victor Svedberg / Regeringskansliet In September 2017, the country held its biggest military exercise in 23 years, with war games involving 19,000 Swedish personnel and allies from Finland, Denmark, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, France, Norway and America. The country last year voted to reintroduce conscription. “All of society needs to be prepared for conflict, not just the military. We haven’t been using words such as total defence or high alert for 25-30 years or more. So the knowledge among citizens is very low,” said Christina Andersson, leader of the project at the Swedish civil contingencies agency.

Facebook selfie clue helps convict Canadian woman who killed her friend 

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 11:11:22 -0500

(image) An incriminating clue in a Facebook selfie was used as evidence to help convict a Canadian woman who strangled her friend to death. Cheyenne Rose Antoine pleaded guilty to killing 18-year-old Brittney Gargol in March 2015 after police used clues in the Facebook post, uploaded six hours before the victim's body was found, to identify her as a suspect. Investigators found a black belt matching the one worn by Antoine in the Facebook photo near the body of her victim on the side of a road near a landfill site in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, CBC Saskatoon reports. Antoine was found guilty of manslaughter this week and sentenced to seven years in prison for strangling her friend. The pair had been drinking and were high on drugs when they got into an argument, Antoine told police. She had initially told investigators the pair were out drinking in a number of bars before her friend left with an unknown man. However police later discovered through a tip-off that Antoine had confessed to a friend she had killed Gargol and later found out she had lied to her uncle to try and cover up the killing.  Brittney Gargol was killed in 2015 Credit: Facebook The 21-year-old had also intentionally tried to obstruct the investigation by misleading detectives with a Facebook post to her friend on the night she killed her. “Where are you?” she wrote. “Haven’t heard from you. Hope you made it home safe.” Antoine, who had initially faced a second-degree murder charge, admitted responsibility for her friend’s death but said she could not remember the details of what had happened on the night. Crown prosecutor Robin Ritter said it was “quite remarkable” how police discovered the information that helped solve the case, adding: “No doubt this young women has issues...and because of those issues she is dangerous.” Jennifer Gargol, Brittney's aunt, said in an impact statement read to the court: “Most days we can't stop thinking about Brittney, what happened that night, what she must have felt fighting for her life. “You feel darkened in your own dark robbed this world of someone who had a special gift.” Antoine said in a statement released through her lawyer:  “I will never forgive myself. “Nothing I say or do will ever bring her back. I am very, very sorry. It shouldn't have ever happened.” Lisa Watson, Antoine's lawyer, said it was a “tragic situation where drug and alcohol use exploded”. “My client had some very deep-seeded personal issues that she was not dealing with and unfortunately, for whatever reason, we’ll never know, they turned into a very tragic situation for all involved,” she added.

Thirteen siblings 'held captive' by parents in Perris, California: 'Deeply religious' couple arrested on torture charges

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 18:46:02 -0500

The American couple who allegedly tortured and imprisoned their 13 children were Elvis fanatics who believed “God called on them” to give birth so many times.  David Allen Turpin, 57, and Louise Anna Turpin, 49, were said to have forced their children to memorise passages of the Bible during “very strict” home schooling sessions.  Family members were reportedly kept away, with the children’s grandparents saying they had not seen them for around five years and an aunt saying she had not visited for 19 years.  David and Louise Turpin joined by their children - wearing matching outfits - as they renewed their wedding vows in 2015 Credit: Facebook The couple had their vows renewed by an Elvis impersonator three times, often with their children identically dressed looking on, according to photographs and footage.  The family had also filed for bankruptcy in 2011 and were said to have racked up debts of up to $500,000 despite Mr Turpin’s job as an engineer earning $140,000 a year.  Police custody images of David Allen Turpin and Louise Anna Turpin Credit: JOSE ROMERO /AFP/Getty Children lived in 'filthy' and 'foul-smelling' house The details emerged as a shocked America attempted to understand how an apparently mild-mannered middle-aged couple had allegedly committed such a heinous crime.  The pair have been charged with nine counts of torture and 10 of child endangerment after being arrested at their home in Perris, California. It followed a dramatic rescue of thirteen children aged between 2 and 29 who were discovered starving and some chained to items of furniture in the “filthy” and “foul-smelling” house.  Police only made the discovery after a 17-year-old girl fled the property through a window, stole a mobile phone and alerted officers to the children’s plight.  She was so emaciated police thought she was only 10. David Allen Turpin and his wife Louise Anna Turpin in a picture posted on Facebook Credit: Facebook On arriving at the middle-class bungalow in Perris, a town of 70,000 situated 15 miles outside Riverside, they found the children kept in dark, squalid and stench-filled conditions.  Some were shackled to their beds. Many appeared far younger than their age because of the horrific conditions they appear to have been kept in, according to officials investigating the case.  The children are now being treated for malnutrition. Mother 'perplexed' by police involvement Greg Fellows, Riverside County sheriff's captain, revealed that Mrs Turpin had appeared "perplexed" as to why police were present at her home.

The document will soon be released, and while claiming to seek a world where nuclear weapons use is less likely, the review’s recommendations would actually expand the conditions under which the United States would use nuclear weapons.
