A teen from the Chicago suburb of Naperville posted the classmate's picture on Craigslist with a caption that included a racial slur, police said.

On Nov. 14, the student allegedly took a photo of a black classmate and posted it online with the caption, “Slave for sale (Naperville).” The post included a racial slur. Naperville police said they began investigating the matter when they learned of it four days after the posting.

"The allegations against the juvenile in this case are beyond disturbing,” DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin said. “Hate crimes have no place in our society and will not be tolerated in DuPage County.”

Paris (CNN)A pregnant woman was killed by dogs in a forest in France as a hunt took place nearby, investigators have said.

The body of the 29-year-old woman, who was walking her own dogs at the time of the attack, was found in the forest of Retz outside the northeastern village of Saint-Pierre Aigle on Saturday.
An autopsy revealed that the woman had died of "bleeding from several dog bites to the upper and lower limbs as well as to the head," prosecutor Frederic Trinh said in a statement Wednesday.


Dance teacher and reality TV participant pleads guilty to statutory rape and exposing a teenager to HIV

(CNN)A Tennessee dance teacher who appeared on a reality show has pleaded guilty to the statutory rape of a teenager and exposing him to the HIV virus, prosecutors said.

John Conner III was scheduled to go on trial this week, but entered the guilty plea to felony charges of criminal exposure to HIV, statutory rape by an authority figure, and solicitation of a minor, Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich said Tuesday in a news release.

Conner was once featured on the Lifetime reality TV dance show "Bring It," which showcased competitive dance teams in the Mid-South, including Conner's Memphis team, CNN affiliate WMC reported.

Conner was 26 years old in 2015 when he met the then-16-year-old boy on a social media website, prosecutors said. Conner had unprotected sex several times with the teenager in the dance teacher's vehicle.

The teenager joined Conner's dance team, the Infamous Dancerettes, and the two continued to exchange nude photos and text messages about their sexual activity, prosecutors said. Conner did not tell the teenager about his HIV diagnosis in 2012, authorities said.

Julia Roberts reportedly was suggested to play Harriet Tubman, and Twitter isn't having it

The revelation that Julia Roberts was suggested to play Harriet Tubman has shocked and downright outraged many social media users. 

"Harriet," a historical film about the life of the slave-turned-abolitionist, starred actress Cynthia Erivo. But if one studio executive had their way, Roberts would've led the way.

Producer Gregory Allen Howard, who started writing the film's screenplay over two decades ago with director Kasi Lemmons, revealed the outrageous casting request during an interview this month with Focus Features, the distributor for "Harriet."


He continued: "When someone pointed out that Roberts couldn’t be Harriet, the executive responded, 'It was so long ago. No one is going to know the difference.' " (Howard did not identify the exec who allegedly made the proposal.)

And of course, nobody is naming names here.

(CNN)The 8-year-old Michigan girl who was not allowed to get her school picture taken because of her red hair extensions got a second chance at a special photo shoot.

And this time, it was all on her terms.
When Chicago photographer Jermaine Horton was tagged in a Facebook post featuring young Marian Scott's story, he wasted no time getting in touch with her parents to arrange a shoot tailor-made for her.

:blush:  VICTOR HILL DON'T PLAY THAT!   :no:

Beloved by supporters, reviled by critics, Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill is as polarizing as they come.

So while many lauded his move Tuesday to fire two deputies for “cowardly behavior” after they allegedly ran from gunfire that left one man dead, others viewed the move with suspicion.Why the rush to judgment, they say?

:o She had a detailed plan outlined in a notebook

GAINESVILLE, Ga. — Police say a 16-year-old had detailed plans to commit murder at a Hall County church.

A collaboration between Gainesville City School officials and Gainesville Police led to the discovery of a her plan to attack Bethel AME Church.

On Friday, Gainesville High school resource officers were notified by school administrators of the white female juvenile’s plans.

Gooood grief. IF they're not fighting other students, fighting teachers [or being screwed by teachers], they're plotting to shoot up their school OR a church
