Those little bastitches are incorrigible. Somebody needs to spend 10 or 15 years creating "domesticated" versions and teach them to post on message boards to harangue NTTs for treats . . .

First crime committed in space?

How a Bitter Divorce Battle on Earth Led to Claims of a Crime in Space

By Mike Baker
Aug. 23, 2019

25
Summer Worden, a former Air Force intelligence officer living in Kansas, has been in the midst of a bitter separation and parenting dispute for much of the past year. So she was surprised when she noticed that her estranged spouse still seemed to know things about her spending. Had she bought a car? How could she afford that?

Ms. Worden put her intelligence background to work, asking her bank about the locations of computers that had recently accessed her bank account using her login credentials. The bank got back to her with an answer: One was a computer network registered to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

Ms. Worden’s spouse, Anne McClain, was a decorated NASA astronaut on a six-month mission aboard the International Space Station. She was about to be part of NASA’s first all-female spacewalk. But the couple’s domestic troubles on Earth, it seemed, had extended into outer space.

Ms. McClain acknowledged that she had accessed the bank account from space, insisting through a lawyer that she was merely shepherding the couple’s still-intertwined finances. Ms. Worden felt differently. She filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission and her family lodged one with NASA’s Office of Inspector General, accusing Ms. McClain of identity theft and improper access to Ms. Worden’s private financial records.

Investigators from the inspector general’s office have since contacted Ms. Worden and Ms. McClain, trying to get to the bottom of what may be the first allegation of criminal wrongdoing in space.

“I was pretty appalled that she would go that far. I knew it was not O.K.,” Ms. Worden said.

The five space agencies involved in the space station — from the United States, Russia, Japan, Europe and Canada — have long-established procedures to handle any jurisdictional questions that arise when astronauts of various nations are orbiting Earth together. But Mark Sundahl, director of the Global Space Law Center at Cleveland State University, said he was not aware of any previous allegation of a crime committed in space. NASA officials said they were also unaware of any crimes committed on the space station.

Ms. McClain, now back on Earth, submitted to an under-oath interview with the inspector general last week. She contends that she was merely doing what she had always done, with Ms. Worden’s permission, to make sure the family’s finances were in order.

“She strenuously denies that she did anything improper,” said her lawyer, Rusty Hardin, who added that the astronaut “is totally cooperating.”

Mr. Hardin said the bank access from space was an attempt to make sure that there were sufficient funds in Ms. Worden’s account to pay bills and care for the child they had been raising. Ms. McClain had done the same throughout the relationship, he said, with Ms. Worden’s full knowledge. Ms. McClain continued using the password that she had used previously and never heard from Ms. Worden that the account was now off limits, he added.

A complaint involving bank access from the space station is just one of a number of complex legal issues that have emerged in the age of routine space travel, issues that are expected to grow with the onset of space tourism.

In 2011, NASA organized a sting operation targeting a space engineer’s widow who was looking to sell a moon rock. In 2013, a Russian satellite was damaged after colliding with debris from a satellite that China had destroyed in a 2007 missile test. In 2017, an Austrian businessman sued a space tourism company, seeking to recover his deposit for a planned trip that was not progressing.

“Just because it’s in space doesn’t mean it’s not subject to law,” Mr. Sundahl said.

One potential issue that could arise with any criminal case or lawsuit over extraterrestrial bank communications, Mr. Sundahl said, is discovery: NASA officials would be wary of opening up highly sensitive computer networks to examination by lawyers, for example. But those sorts of legal questions, he said, are going to be inevitable as people spend more time in outer space.

The couple’s dispute revolved largely around Ms. Worden’s son, who was born about a year before the two met.

Ms. Worden, who had previously worked at the National Security Agency, resisted allowing Ms. McClain to adopt the child, even after they were married at the end of 2014.

In early 2018, while the couple was still married, Ms. McClain went to a local court in the Houston area to ask a judge to grant her shared parenting rights and “the exclusive right to designate the primary residence of the child” if the parties could not reach a mutual agreement, according to records. She contended that Ms. Worden had an explosive temper and was making poor financial decisions, and she wanted the court to “legally validate my established and deep parental relationship” with the young boy.

Around the same time, Ms. McClain apparently posted official NASA photos — now deleted — on her Twitter account, showing herself in her astronaut suit smiling alongside Ms. Worden’s son. “The hardest part about training for space is the 4 yr old I have to leave behind every time I walk out the door,” she wrote at the time.

The social media attention aggravated Ms. Worden further, as she did not want Ms. McClain to claim to be the mother of the child. Later in 2018, Ms. Worden filed for divorce after Ms. McClain accused her of assault — something Ms. Worden denies and says she believes was part of Ms. McClain’s bid to get control of the child. The assault case was later dismissed.

A few months later, after Ms. McClain launched to the space station, their dispute continued to escalate. Ms. Worden noticed the bank issue. And when word of her concerns reached NASA, officials there immediately raised the issue with Ms. McClain, who fired off an email to Ms. Worden.

“They specifically mentioned threatening emails from orbit, and accessing bank accounts — not sure where that info comes from,” Ms. McClain wrote in an email to Ms. Worden.

Despite the turmoil, Ms. McClain portrayed no outward signs of trouble on the space station. The Spokane, Wash., native was an acclaimed leader with a decorated past — a West Point graduate who became a commissioned Army officer and flew more than 800 combat hours in Operation Iraqi Freedom before joining NASA in 2013. She remains a lieutenant colonel in the Army, and Stars and Stripes reported this week that she is on a list of candidates NASA is considering to be the first woman on the moon.

In the days after Ms. McClain’s email to Ms. Worden, Ms. Worden filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission, accusing Ms. McClain of committing identity theft — though she saw no sign that anyone had moved or made use of the funds in the account.

Ms. McClain, meanwhile, was gaining national attention for another reason. NASA was promoting the coming milestone of an all-female spacewalk, with Ms. McClain set to do work outside the space station with her fellow astronaut Christina Koch. But in a sudden switch a few days before the spacewalk, NASA scrapped Ms. McClain’s role, explaining that there were not enough suits available in the two women’s size.

“Saturday Night Live” skewered the agency, with the actress Aidy Bryant portraying a disappointed Ms. McClain with her dreams crushed by poor NASA planning.

A NASA spokeswoman, Megan Sumner, said the decision about the spacewalk was not influenced by any allegations about Ms. McClain. Ms. Sumner declined to comment about the other issues raised by Ms. Worden.

In the days before Ms. McClain returned from space in June, Ms. Worden’s parents sent a lengthy letter to NASA’s Office of Inspector General, outlining what they described as Ms. McClain’s “highly calculated and manipulative campaign” to win custody of the child. In the letter, they included the allegation of the bank account intrusion.

In recent days, Michael Mataya, an investigator specializing in criminal cases with NASA’s Office of Inspector General, and another official have been exploring the issue, said Ms. Worden and her mother. Mr. Mataya declined to comment, as did a spokeswoman. The trade commission has not responded to the identity theft report, Ms. Worden said.

The domestic dispute in space may be the first such investigation, but it is unlikely that it will be the last.

“The more we go out there and spend time out there,” Mr. Sundahl said, “all the things we do here are going to happen in space.”

Nah not the first crime in space.

Hard to say when the "first" one was, but I'm quite sure that plenty of Chinese if not Russian or other nations actions in space had breached International Law long ago. One example I can think of right off the top of my head is when the Chinese intentionally destroyed one of their own satellites with a kinetic projectile bringing Earth one step closer to Kessler Syndrome

I would guess that that action was almost certainly in breach of multiple treaties and even if there is room for interpretation in terms of the literal laws, it was clearly in breach of space ethics.

Shocking video shows mob pummel man outside Minnesota’s Target Field

By Craig McCarthy September 13, 2019 | 7:03pm

[video at above linked article]

Shocking surveillance footage shows a senseless beatdown outside the Minnesota Twins stadium, where a group of thugs throw a man to the ground, pummel him, take off his pants and, at one point, run over him with a bicycle.

The nearly two-minute clip, posted to social media Friday, starts with a man sitting on a curb outside Target Field in downtown Minneapolis.

Two of the men walk up to the victim, and it appears that one tries to grab something from the man.

After the man jumps up to follow the thief, another one of the thugs sucker punches the man, the video shows.

As the man stumbles and tries to run away, a fourth attacker body slams the man to the ground, where a fifth man leaps and stomps on his chest with two feet, according to the video.

The assailants pull the man’s pants off and continue to pummel the man with haymakers and kicks — and one smashes a planter on the man — as he keeps trying to get up, the video shows.

The video ends after one of the thugs rides over the victim with a bicycle.


:(

No racial bias involved in this I guess.

The FBI’s annual crime report is out, and the anti-gun crowd won’t like it

Nate Madden · October 1, 2019

The Federal Bureau of Investigation released its Uniform Crime Report for 2018 on Monday, and the numbers indicate that more people were killed by knives than rifles.

The annual report touts an overall drop in violent crime for the second consecutive year, according to the Bureau’s news release on the numbers. However, the numbers specifically on homicides in the United States offer some insight into America’s ongoing gun control debate.

Due to multiple shooting massacres that took place in August, gun control proponents have once again turned their animus toward semi-automatic rifles such as the AR-15. Perhaps the most salient example of this is 2020 Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke’s pledge, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.”

However, as has been the case in previous years, the numbers show that rifles in general — including semi-automatics as well as others — only account for a fraction of a percent of the total homicide rate in the United States.

Here’s what the FBI’s 2018 homicide numbers show us:

    Overall, the number of homicides dropped from 15,195 in 2017 to 14,123 in 2018. The overall number of people murdered with guns dropped as well.
    10,265 were committed with firearms, out of which handguns accounted for 6,603.
    Rifles were used in 297 homicides, shotguns in 235, and “other guns” in 167.
    2,963 homicides were listed as “firearms, type not stated.”

What does this show us? According to the available information, rifles accounted for just 2.1 percent of total homicides last year — and 2.9 percent of gun homicides.

Once again, deaths from knives and “personal weapons” like hands, fists, and feet were higher than the number of homicides committed with rifles. More than five times as many murders were committed with knives (1,515) as with rifles, and more than twice as many people were killed with “personal weapons” (672). Other years included in the FBI report’s table — which spans 2014-2018 — show similar disparities between the same weapon types.

Again, these numbers are just for rifles as a whole. There’s no further breakdown for what kind of action or cosmetic features the rifles had.

But despite the facts, the question of what to do about the AR-15 and other widely used semi-automatic rifles — sometimes referred to as “assault weapons” — will likely remain as one of the main focus points in America’s ongoing debate about guns and the Second Amendment.

Florida man who shot unarmed man in parking-space dispute sentenced to 20 years

Michael Drejka, who fatally shot Markeis McGlockton, 28, outside of a Clearwater convenience store in July 2018, was found guilty of manslaughter in August.


Oct. 10, 2019, 11:43 AM EDT / Updated Oct. 10, 2019, 11:48 AM EDT
By Elisha Fieldstadt

A Florida man who was found guilty of manslaughter in the fatal shooting of an unarmed man during a dispute over a handicapped parking space in Florida last year was sentenced to 20 years in prison Thursday.

Michael Drejka, who fatally shot Markeis McGlockton, 28, outside of a Clearwater convenience store in July 2018, was found guilty of manslaughter in August.

Drejka had approached McGlockton's car to see if it had the correct decal for a handicapped space and subsequently got in an argument with McGlockton's girlfriend, Britany Jacobs, who was in the car with two of their children.

When McGlockton came out of the store and saw what was going on, he shoved Drejka to the ground, surveillance footage showed. Drejka then pulled out his gun and shot McGlockton, the footage showed.

McGlockton was unarmed, and video surveillance and autopsy results indicated he was turning away from Drejka when he was shot.

Prosecutors said that Drejka started the altercation by confronting Jacobs because she was parked with her children in the handicapped space. They said Drejka had no reason to fire as McGlockton was retreating.

Jacobs testified that she feared for her safety before the argument escalated.

Drejka did not testify on his own behalf during the trial, which was in Clearwater. His defense team argued that it was Jacobs who was the aggressor, and "not once did Mr. Drejka threaten" either McGlockton or Jacobs.

Drejka, who has a concealed weapons license, was initially not arrested due to Florida’s "stand your ground" law. Nearly a month later though, local prosecutors charged Drejka with manslaughter following protests.

Michele Rayner-Goolsby, who represented McGlockton's parents, said prior to the conviction that the outcome of the case would be closely watched because of how it touches on race — Drejka is white and McGlockton was black — as well as how law enforcement treats people of color since it took 25 days before any charges were brought against Drejka.

Drejka's attorneys have said race is not an issue, and that Drejka has confronted other people about parking in the handicapped-accessible spot no matter their background.

In 2005, Florida became the first state to enact a "stand your ground" law, which states a citizen facing a threat or perceived threat does not have a duty to flee the scene and can use deadly force if they fear they face bodily harm.

First space crime:

“Oh — Who did it?” Tom Stafford asks at one point. Confused, Young and Cernan reply, “Who did what?”

Cernan: “Where did that come from?”

Stafford: “Get me a napkin quick. There’s a turd floating through the air.”

Young: “I didn’t do it. It ain’t one of mine.”

Cernan: “I don’t think it’s one of mine.”

Stafford: “Mine was a little more sticky than that. Throw that away.”

LOL....I had never heard of that before today.

And just nine minutes later, Cernan was flabbergasted to be interrupted yet again by another floating piece of feces:
