New York police officer gets just one day jail after being convicted of filing false police report that put man in jail

Diego Palacios 
By: Moses Gold

(Scroll down for video) A New York police officer was arrested, charged and convicted after filing a false police report that sent an innocent man to jail, according to court proceedings in New York.

Now, the New York police officer who claimed that a Brooklyn man had tried to run him down in a driveway, only to be exposed as a liar by video surveillance, received a slap on the wrist.

Diego Palacios pleaded guilty last week in Brooklyn Supreme Court to writing a false report and was ordered to spend four days behind bars, according to court proceedings.

But Palacios was only one night in jail, according to prison records.
The incident happened when John Hockenjos fought with a neighbor about who owned the driveway in between their homes.

The dispute reached a boiling point where police were called to the scene and Palacios was sent to the location of the dispute.
Palacios arrested Hockenjos, saying in a police report that the man had tried to run him down with his car.

Hockenjos was charged with felony reckless endangerment in the first degree, which carries a maximum sentence of up to seven years and was taken to jail for three days.

But the situation changed in his favor when a video appeared revealing what really happened.
Images from a surveillance camera showed that Hockenjos slowly pulled out of the driveway, while the police officer stood there calmly.

The eight-year veteran of the New York police was arrested for false arrest.
Hockenjos’ charges were later dropped.

(Scroll down for video) A group of kangaroos had no respect for the prestigious Women’s Open and disrupted the game, according to video uploaded to the internet.

Kangaroos on a golf course may be a common sight for any Australian golfer but they caused a stir at the Australian Women's Open in Canberra, last week.

The international field featuring 10 of the world's top 20 women golfers had to get used to the large animals bouncing around the fairways and grazing on the greens of the Royal Canberra championship course.

Australia's capital is typically dry in summer and by February kangaroos are drawn to the lush watered courses.
Local media said the drought of the 2000s saw so many kangaroos feeding on Canberra's watered lawns and parks, so they had to be executed because they posed a threat to motorists.

In the video below you can see the group of kangaroos as they hop around on the Australian gold course during the Women’s Open.

Company produces advertisements for doctors that can only be heard with stethoscope

Doctor holding stethoscope 
By: David Ross

(Scroll down for video) Just like all of us, doctors are overloaded with solicitations from different companies.

In order to get the attention from doctors, one agency came up with an innovative idea: listen to the advertisement through a stethoscope.

Due to the shortage of doctors in Africa, direct mail packages were sent to foreign health professionals, hoping to recruit them to the area.

But the advertisement was not an ordinary book with photos of suffering children, instead it had a twist and had many doctors listening.

The recruitment agency, Africa Health Placements, partnered with strategic branding company, Boomtown, for a creative campaign.

Using the most basic of tools, doctors had to push their stethoscope against the package which activated a pressure sensitive MP3, allowing physicians to listen to the message through their stethoscope.

The end result was the world's first stethoscope advertisement. Hopefully this novel idea got them the results they were looking for which is to recruit doctors to work in Africa.

One thing the advertisement definitely achieved was winning a Clio Healthcare Award for creative excellence. Clio Awards, are given to only the most innovative talent that surpasses all limits of creativity.

Former San Diego California mayor steals charity money for gambling

Maureen O'Connor 
By: David Ross

(Scroll down for video) A former San Diego, California, mayor was arrested and charged after being caught stealing from charity to finance her gambling addiction, according to court proceedings in California.

She married a wealthy man and became the first mayor of San Diego. But when Maureen O'Connor left public life, she spent hours and hours sitting in front of video-poker machines.

Over a period of nine years, she wagered an estimated $1 billion, including millions from a charity set up by her late husband, who founded Jack in the Box.

That was the picture that emerged in court Thursday, when the former mayor tearfully acknowledged that she took more than $2 million from a charity founded by her late husband, Robert O. Peterson.

O'Connor, 66, admitted in a plea deal that she had a gambling addiction and she had no money left to her name. Her lawyer, Eugene Iredale, suggested that a brain tumor may have impaired her reasoning. She gave reporters copies of her brain scan from 2011.

O'Connor’s health has been declining rapidly, according to doctors and it was highly unlikely, if not impossible, to be brought to trial, according to court documents filed by federal prosecutors.

"This is a sad day for the city of San Diego," Assistant U.S. Attorney, Phillip Halpern, said.

(Scroll down for video) A cruel man killed his own little son after he became tired of taking care of him, according to police reports in Louisiana.
The Louisiana man has been arrested for beheading his disabled son, who was 7-years-old old and leaving his head at the side of a road for his mother to see, police said.

Jeremiah Lee Wright, 30, told police he did it because he was tired of caring for the child, who suffered from cerebral palsy and requires a wheelchair and feeding tube, authorities told a local newspaper.

The grisly murder was discovered one afternoon when a passing motorist spotted the severed head of Jori Lirette, lying on the side of a road in Houma, Louisiana, the newspaper reported.

Lirette’s devastated mother, Jesslyn Lirette named Wright, her live-in boyfriend of 10 years, the "devil", which took her "angel" away.
She said Jori loved his father "more than anything and he still killed him. He killed my baby."

Thibodaux Police Chief, Scott Silverii, said that the child's head was placed on the sidewalk to make fun of his mother.
"He said that when he put his head on the side of the road, it was because the mother should see it when she came by," Silverii told the press. "He wanted her to feel stupid when she saw the head," he added.

Wright was charged with first-degree murder and held on $5 million bond. If convicted he faces a possible death sentence.

1,200 injured, thousands of homes damaged after meteor hits Russia

Meteor explodes in Russia 
By: David Ross

(Scroll down for video) Millions of people in Russia were alarmed after hearing a large explosion, according to video uploaded to the internet.

The meteorite that fell into Russia hit the Earth's atmosphere at an intensity of 30 World War Two type atomic bombs, scientists from NASA, confirmed.

"It had the energy greater than all the weapons used during World War Two," Bill Cooke, head of the Meteoroid Environments Office at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, said.

The 10,000 ton fireball shined brighter than the sun and sparked about 500 kilotons of energy, an increase of 30 kilotons from previous estimates, along the Urals region of Russia Friday at 9:20 am, according to experts.

The impact of the explosion injured 1,200 people and destroyed thousands of homes while residents were in panic after the apocalyptic moment in the city of Chelyabinsk, a city of 1.1 million residents located 930 miles east of Moscow, where an army of workers are currently working to repair the destruction.

The meteor, estimated to be 49 to 55 feet long, is the largest since 1908, which crashed in Tunguska, Siberia, about 3,000 miles away from the current meteor.
