In February, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian were pulled off a plane for a TSA security check.

West and Kardashian, caused a plane full of passengers to wait almost an hour for takeoff at JFK airport in New York, after an airline employee apparently allowed the two to bypass a security checkpoint.

The stars were running late for their American Airlines flight and they were led around a security checkpoint so they can quickly board the plane to Los Angeles.

The stars arrived at JFK, on a flight from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. They were cleared by customs and went through the luggage area. That is when the airline employee escorted them through a restricted area.

Airport officials soon learned of the special treatment given to West and Kardashian, and ordered them to be taken off from the plane. Then, the stars went through a pat down by TSA agents. The incident delayed the flight for almost an hour.

Rules require all airline passengers to pass through the TSA security check at the airport, and stars have to play by the same rules as any other passenger.

A well meaning gesture to help homeless people with gifts backfired.

Homeless people were invited to attended an event run by the government in Malaysia.

During the event, the homeless people were handed gifts, which they cannot use. They received large appliances.

The kind gesture sent the wrong message when some of the homeless eagerly unwrapped their gifts only to find the kitchen appliances.

Pertiwi Soup Kitchen founder Munirah Abdul Hamid, said that although the initiative was well received, she was surprised that appliances were given as gifts to people who are homeless and are unable to use them.

She explained that although it was a nice gesture, we must understand that these people do not even have a place to stay, much less a place to use a coffee maker or a hand mixer, which they received.

“Some of them approached me and asked if I wanted to buy the appliances they received for money,” Hamid said.

Hamid said that she was contacted by an official from the ministry before the event to discuss what gifts were appropriate for the homeless and she suggested food for a few days or even clothing, but her suggestions were not followed.

Officials said that next time, they will hand out more appropriate gifts for the homeless.

A man of Chicago, Illinois, was jailed after admitting to being responsible for a three-week spree of armed robberies, including the sexual assault of a teenage girl.

Vidal Rainey, 25, has been sentenced to 40 years in prison, according to Cook County State Attorney Anita Alvarez.

Rainey pleaded guilty to multiple charges, including Aggravated Criminal Sexual Assault, Armed Robbery, Attempt Armed Robbery and Robbery in connection with 19 separate cases that occurred in Chicago’s Humboldt Park and Wicker Park neighborhoods.

According to prosecutors, Rainey went on a robbery spree, targeting women who were walking alone and in some cases threatening victims with sexual assault.

The robberies followed a similar pattern in which Rainey would approach the victims and produced what appeared to be a handgun and demanded money, cell phones and credit cards.

In one case, Rainey forced a 14-year-old victim into a gangway where he robbed her of $15 and then sexually assaulted her at gunpoint.

Rainey was arrested by Chicago Police after being caught on surveillance video using one of the stolen credit cards at a gas station. Rainey’s fingerprints and the gun used in the robberies, which turned out to be a BB gun, were recovered from the stolen car that Rainey had been driving.

Rainey pleaded guilty during a hearing at the Leighton Criminal Court Building before Judge Thaddeus Wilson, who imposed the 40 year sentence.

A man was arrested for sexually assaulting a girl on a bus.

The man who was on his way home after registering as a sex offender, fondled the 4-year-old girl on a Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) bus, in Cook County, Illinois, prosecutors said.

32-year-old Judex Colon registered as a sex offender on Tuesday morning, before he boarded the CTA bus on the North Side, according to Assistant State Attorney Sarah Karr.

When the girl and her mother boarded the bus, the girl found a seat next to Colon. During the trip, he touched the child under her clothes.

The girl told her mother about the incident when they returned home. The child was taken to a hospital for observation.

At the time of his arrest, Colon wore a shirt which read: “You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say will be misquoted and used against you.”

The sexual assault occurred around 10:00 a.m., according to police.

Several years ago, Colon was convicted of sexual assault after molesting two girls, ages 5 and 12, while working as an operator at a county fair in Indiana, Karr said. In one incident, Colon stopped the ride and inappropriately touched the children.

This week, Colon was arrested and charged with predatory criminal sexual assault.

Judge Maria Kuriakos Ciesil ordered him to be held without bail, deeming him a danger to himself and to society.

Police officer breaks down crying after killing unarmed man (video)

Grant Morrison crying 
By: Feng Qian

(Scroll down for video) Police released a video showing an officer breaking down crying after shooting a man.

Officer Grant Morrison of Billings, Montana, was distraught after killing an unarmed suspect during a traffic stop.

Morrison shot and killed 38-year-old Richard Ramirez, after he was wanted in connection with a recent shooting involving drugs and seemed to reach for something while sitting in his car.

The suspect, a meth addict, repeatedly raised his hands before the officer shot him three times, according to video that was released this week.

After Morrison killed Ramirez and learned that he was unarmed, he was seen on video walking away from the crime scene. He then began crying while another officer held his arms while trying to comfort him.

In the video of a police car dashcam, Morrison was heard shouting “hands up” at least six times before firing three shots into the vehicle in quick succession.

The other passengers in the car were heard telling the officer that Ramirez was tired. That did not stop the officer from ordering him to follow instructions.

After watching the video of the officer shooting the unarmed man and how he broke down crying afterward, the jury ruled that officer Morrison was justified in pulling the trigger.

An autopsy showed that Ramirez was hit by a bullet in his chest, which punctured his lung. A toxicology report showed that he had methamphetamine in his system at the time of his death, officials said.

Morrison is still an active duty officer.
