    Boston University Ice Hockey Team Slammed for ‘Sexual Entitlement’ Culture

    (BOSTON) — Boston University’s men’s ice hockey team has come under scathing criticism for an alleged culture of “sexual entitlement” and alcohol abuse. A task force of professors and trustees, which issued its report Thursday, was set up after two BU hockey players were charged with sexual assault in separate incidents in December 2011 and February 2012. Criminal charges against former player Max Nicastro, who was accused of rape, were later dropped, and Corey Trivino pleaded guilty to sexual assault. But the task force found that the team’s “elevated social status” on campus led to “frequent sexual encounters with women […]

    Drunk Driver Pocket-Dials 911, Leading to Own Arrest

    (TACOMA, Wash.) — A 47-year-old man in Tacoma, Wash. mistakenly pocket-dialed 911 not once but twice while driving drunk in what police said was a suspected stolen car.

According to Tacoma police, the call was traced to a street where officers saw a car run a red […]

On planes such as the Boeing 747 and the giant Airbus A380, the safety board said, pilots can’t see the wingtips from the cockpit unless they open the side window and stick out their heads. Kevin Hiatt, a former commercial pilot and the chief operating officer of the Flight Safety Foundation, agreed that cameras might be a help. “Physically, […]

    (NEWBURGH, N.Y.) — Newburgh, N.Y., police Thursday afternoon called off their investigation of a possible child abduction after determining that the kids who reported the incident had fabricated the entire story as a prank. “We investigated every possible lead in determining whether the abduction had occurred with the interest of any possible victim in mind,” the NPD said in a statement. “There is no indication that the abduction or any incident that could be perceived as an abduction had occurred.” Officials had already cancelled an AMBER Alert Thursday morning issued 16 hours earlier after a group of children, some as […]
