Old Mutual has come under fire after a fed-up family was forced to resort to drastic measures after it allegedly failed to pay a funeral claim.

On Tuesday night, numerous videos emerged on Twitter showing family members carrying the body of a dead family in a body bag from Old Mutual’s offices in KZN where it was dropped following the company’s alleged refusal to pay out a death benefit.

According to tweets, the policy holder roped in family members after failing to resolve the dispute with the insurance company.

The videos, which have since gone viral, sparked outrage on social media, with users slamming the embattled company over its insensitivity towards the bereaved family.

The dude got arrested once before this for using a painter’s extension rod to point the stoplight cameras into the sky instead of cutting the wires. He didn’t cut the wires until AFTER he got out after being arrested the first time-which he did after posting on Facebook videos that proved that the stoplights are intentionally rigged to trick drivers into citations. The yellow lights at intersections with cameras only last THREE SECONDS, opposed to five seconds they last at other stoplights without cameras in the same county.

When he cut the camera cords, he reported his deeds to the news HIMSELF and then politicians pressured the local police into arresting him. The local police and sheriff deputies actually SUPPORT him for his actions because the lights have been killing people! During his most recent arrest, one of the Sherriffs Deputies actually offered to bail him out.

When he got home after these incidents, there was a surveillance camera planted at his house BY THE GOVERNMENT to watch him! His reaction to being surveilled? He painted over the camera in one of the flat out ballsiest “Fu*k You” to the Gubmint I’ve ever heard of.

And it gets EVEN CRAZIER. After painting over the camera, suddenly this guy (BTW, his name is Stephen Ruth) started GETTING ATTEMPTS ON HIS LIFE. He reports that a car intentionally tried to hit him in a head-on collision, and after talking about the car to his neighbors, they confirmed that the car in question (Or at least, one that was visibly identical, its’ occupants included) had been staking out his house! Somebody was out there trying to MURDER him over is discovery and actions.

As a final insult to injury, Ruth pointed out the VAST majority of the cameras were found SPECIFICALLY in lower-to-middle class neighborhoods. The victims of these rigged stoplights tried to go to the local news station to talk about the deaths of their family members that occurred from the rigging … Annnnnnndddddddd…. The local station “NEWS12”, never aired their interviews.

Remember how I said that, after cutting the cables and calling the local news station, Rugh was arrested because of pressure by Politicians? GET THIS: News12 is actually owned by CableVision, who provides INTERNET SERVICES TO THE CAMERAS! .Whereas Mr. Ruth was only trying to help people and save lives, he’s been caught up in a full-blown government conspiracy that is out for his blood.

Stephen Ruth is a full-blown HERO!

A Miami Beach woman was drinking beers with her boyfriend for hours before he said she became belligerent and bit his penis.

The pair were having drinks in an apartment on Miami Beach from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. Around midnight, a female friend came over and then left sometime after, according to a police report.

Shortly after the friend left, the woman started accusing her boyfriend of wanting to have sex with her. The report said the woman then grabbed her boyfriend by both of his arms, yelled at him and “began to poke him with a knife.”

The victim had red marks and redness on his upper chest but no substantial injuries, according to the report.

He said he asked her to stop or he would call the police. When they arrived, he also reported that his girlfriend “bit his penis out of frustration.”

People who annoy an officer in one upstate New York county could find themselves facing jail time under a measure recently approved by a county legislature.

Under the Monroe County proposal, a person who annoys, alarms or threatens the personal safety of an officer could be punished with up to a year behind bars and up to a $5,000 fine.

Jamie Anthony, chief of staff for the Monroe County Legislature majority office, said county lawmakers passed the measure on Tuesday in a 17-10 vote. The county executive will hold a public hearing on the legislation and decide whether to approve it, she said.

The legislation also applies to first responders.
Some called the measure unconstitutional.

Iman Abid with the New York Civil Liberties Union said it will have a chilling effect on complaints against police. Abid said she is also concerned over what the legislation could mean for communities of color.

“Members of the community have every right to challenge police officers, particularly those that engage in unnecessary behavior,” she said in a statement. “At a time when more accountability of police departments is needed, this law takes us incredibly backward.”

In a statement last month, County Legislator Kara Halstead said she was proud to support legislation that “looks after those who look out for us.”

“This local law aims to crack down on behaviors of disrespect and incivility toward law enforcement and first responders in the hopes that these smaller incidents do not escalate,” she said in the statement.

A news release on the legislation also gave a mention to people dousing uniformed New York Police Department officers with water.

Delores Jones-Brown, professor emerita at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, said courts have found that the use of the words annoying or alarming in statue is overbroad and unconstitutionally vague.

The legislation, she said, could create a situation where people are scared to exercise their First Amendment rights. An officer could be annoyed by a person who asks them their badge number or who records them with a cellphone while on the job, Jones-Brown said.

“This statue definitely has the capacity to make people afraid to do that,” she said.

Jones-Brown added that a portion of the measure could survive a legal challenge — a section tied to conduct that threatens the personal safety of a police officer. Courts have found threats easier to define, she said, but they are not completely beyond interpretation.

Under the legislation, a prosecutor would have to prove that it was a person’s intent to threaten an officer’s personal safety, she said.

Alleged bank robbers don’t normally smile for the camera as they are leaving the lobby with a bag full of cash.

But that’s what police say 26-year-old Dontrell Scott did Tuesday afternoon as he walked out of the SunTrust Bank in downtown Columbus.

It isn’t the first time Scott has had his picture taken.

A search of the Muscogee County Jail mugshot database shows that Scott has been arrested in Columbus at least 15 times between 2012 and 2019. The charges range from driving without a license to forgery to prostitution.

Police say Scott walked into the SunTrust at the corner of First Avenue and 13th Street about 3:45 p.m. He left with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Security camera photos released by Columbus police show that the alleged robber was not wearing a mask of any kind and had on a Chili’s restaurant shirt.

He also picked a bank that houses the Columbus field office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Later in the afternoon, Scott was arrested at a Phenix City car lot, attempting to purchase a car with cash. D. Cochran was the man at Ask D Auto Audio Sales who was selling Scott the vehicle.

A Tallahassee woman may have gone on an arson spree Wednesday and Thursday, starting at a Taco Bell where a woman was set on fire, cops say.

On Wednesday, Mia Williams, a 32-year-old who was born male but identifies as female, walked into a Taco Bell, doused a woman with gasoline and then set her on fire, Tallahassee police said.

Williams ran away and the victim was taken to a hospital by helicopter with serious injuries. As of Friday, the victim was still being treated, police said.
At around 5 a.m. Thursday, reports came in that a car was set on fire. Twenty minutes later, two other fires on the same street were also reported. The first involved two cars and the second was a church that was fully engulfed in flames, police said.

A short time later, two more fires were reported, all of in relatively close proximity. While the five fires were not within walking distance, police suspect that the culprit could be on a bicycle.

At around 6:40 a.m., a Tallahassee fire truck spotted Williams on a bike and began following her. When an officer arrived, he tried to stop Williams by using a Taser on her twice, but both shots weren’t effective, police said.

As Williams continued to ride away, the officer decided to drive his patrol car over a curb and pin the front tire of Williams’ bike to fence because “[she] was a serious risk to public safety.”

She wasn’t done trying to get away. The officer said that Williams jumped on top of the car roof, pulled out a pair of orange scissors and then raised them up “as if to potentially stab me.”

Police eventually arrested Williams and found a cigarette lighter in her pocket.

Williams was only charged in relation to setting the woman ablaze at the Taco Bell, not with the fires that followed.

Tallahassee police say the car and church fires are still being investigated by fire officials.

Williams was charged with premeditated homicide, resisting an officer with violence and aggravated assault on an officer.

The Florida State University student who was robbed outside of Gilchrist Hall Monday morning was stabbed in the back of the head during the incident, according to an arrest affidavit.

The FSU Police Department said Monday evening it arrested Rodney Jermaine Joyner, 36, in connection to the robbery.

According to the affidavit, FSU’s surveillance footage showed Joyner parked in his car at the intersection of University Way and Gray Street around 6:18 a.m. Monday. At around 6:36 a.m., Joyner tackled the victim from behind and put the knife to his chest.

The victim told police he gave in because he saw the knife, so he let Joyner take his phone from his pocket and gave him the password. The victim said Joyner freaked out a little bit after he told him he needed help and saw the blood coming from the back of his head, the affidavit said.

Joyner put a shirt over the victim’s face, and the victim then put it on the wound on the back of their head.

According to the affidavit, the victim told Joyner his mother died three weeks ago so he could take whatever he wanted, and Joyner said that made him feel bad. Joyner told police he believed a Haitian girl he had been seeing placed a voodoo curse on him, causing him to act strange and possibly hurt the victim.

Joyner was charged with robbery with a weapon, aggravated battery using a deadly weapon and attempted kidnapping. Police say Joyner is not affiliated with FSU.

Police say they arrested Joyner around 6:45 a.m. after responding to the robbery report at the dorm.

According to police, Joyner ran away from the victim, got into a parked car and drove away.

Police say they sent a notification out to surrounding agencies to be on the lookout for the suspect and their car. A short time later, the car was found abandoned a few blocks south of FSU’s main campus.

Joyner was found and taken into custody in the 100 block of West Bloxham Street without incident.

He was taken to Leon County Jail.

A local woman arrested on felony drug charges early Sunday following a traffic stop reportedly told Hot Springs police she believed her brother had put meth in her sandwich or her drink.

Elizabeth Marie Catlett, 29, who lists a Park Avenue address, was taken into custody shortly after 6:30 a.m. and charged with possession of meth with purpose to deliver, punishable by up to 10 years in prison, four counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, punishable by up to six years, and a misdemeanor count of driving while intoxicated, first offense.

Her passenger, Don Russell Furr, 33, of Lonsdale, was arrested on the same felony charges as Catlett. Furr, a previously convicted felon, was being held on $13,500 bond while Catlett, who had no prior criminal history, was held on a $14,500 bond and both were set to appear Monday in Garland County District Court.

According to the probable cause affidavit, around 6:30 a.m. Sunday, Officer Thomas Plummer was eastbound in the 1000 block of East Grand Avenue when he saw a gold 1994 Toyota Camry pull out of a parking lot without its headlights on. He followed alongside the vehicle which continued to drive without headlights and finally stopped it at the intersection of E. Grand and South Border Street.

Upon speaking to the driver, identified as Catlett, Plummer noted a smell of marijuana and that Catlett was “moving about the vehicle in a quick, nervous manner.” When asked, Catlett denied there were any drugs in the car and Plummer noted the front seat passenger, identified as Furr, avoided eye contact with him.

Plummer had Catlett exit the car and asked if he could check her for weapons or illegal items. She consented and he allegedly found a plastic baggie in her pocket which contained scraps of paper, a cut straw and smaller baggies. Catlett stated the bag was not hers and “someone else put it there.”

Inside the scraps of paper was what appeared to be meth and the bags and straw had meth residue. Catlett was taken into custody and officers spoke to Furr who stated if there was anything illegal in the car “it would be in the console and it would be ICE,” a common term for meth. A zippered bag was found containing a glass pipe, a bag with meth and Q-tips.

It was a day full of sometimes shocking testimony in a Dallas courtroom Friday.

Sentencing just ended for Kaylene Bowen-Wright, a mother who faked her son’s illness for years, causing him to get surgeries he didn’t need.

Wright pleaded guilty to seriously injuring her son and faced up to 20 years behind bars. The state pushed for the max, but the judge settled on six years in prison.

According to his dad, Ryan Crawford, Christopher Bowen is now a happy, thriving 10-year-old who loves soccer and choir, but it wasn’t always that way.

“Every single illness led up to eventually that he was dying every time we went to court,” Crawford said.

The fifth grader spent the first eight years of his life in and out of hospitals. His mother seemingly suffers from Munchausen syndrome by proxy. (Munchausen by proxy — is a psychological disorder marked by attention-seeking behavior by a caregiver through those who are in their care). She pleaded guilty to seriously injuring him since birth, earlier this year.

On Friday, Crawford testified the saga cost him years with his child.
