How do you protect your home from flood if you dont have a government? Mr Petty told The Times 'it was hard and humbling' that so many people volunteered to help him save his property, including some folks he didn't even know.
This guys stops an armed robbery, likely saves his life and his co-worker's, but gets fired for breaking Walgreen's policy that says employees can not do anything to escalate a robbery situation. Sounds to me like he deescalated it pretty well.
87-year-old Lorraine Bayless collapsed at Glenwood Gardens senior living facility in Bakersfield, California. A nurse named Colleen called 911 and was instructed by the dispatcher, Tracey Halvorson, to perform CPR to save the woman’s life, but Colleen replied that it was against their policy and she couldn’t do it, so she watched Lorraine die.
Audio of the 911 call has been released which is chilling to the bone, and mainstream coverage of the story is almost as terrifying.
Assange's London attorney, Mark Stephens, told AOL News today that Swedish prosecutors told him that Assange is wanted not for allegations of rape, as previously reported, but for something called "sex by surprise," which he said involves a fine of 5,000 kronor or about $715.
