What about this one.

http://abc13.com/teen-allegedly-kidnapp ... -/3478056/
A teenage boy was kidnapped from a bus stop Monday afternoon, and was found running away from suspects with torn clothes and no shoes, according to Houston police.

Michelle Lee, the victim's mother, called police when her 13-year-old son Zavion Parker never returned home from school.

As officers were gathering information, Parker was found safe, but had gone through a very traumatic experience.

That is exactly one of the ways it is supposed to work--in fact the best incentive for police departments to be willing to have them. Everyone benefits except cops that want to abuse their power or people that want to abuse cops.

An Odessa waiter's viral Facebook post about a patron leaving a racist message instead of a tip was allegedly fabricated, according to the Odessa American.

Khalil Cavil was waiting tables on July 14 at Saltgrass Steak House in Odessa, when he discovered the patrons left a note on the receipt, according to a previous Reporter-Telegram article. According to Cavil's Facebook post his name "Khalil" was circled on the receipt with"We don't Tip Terrorist" written across the top.

The original post has since been deleted and his page is no longer active.

In response to the incident, Saltgrass Steak House COO Terry Turney released the following statement:

"After further investigation, we have learned that our employee fabricated the entire story. The customer has been contacted and invited back to our restaurant to dine on us. Racism of any form is intolerable, and we will always act swiftly should it occur in any of our establishments. Falsely accusing someone of racism is equaling disturbing."

An Uptown man who is charged with two counts of hate crime for drawing swastikas on fences and a garage in his neighborhood is Jewish and was arrested five days before the 2016 election for allegedly threatening to rape and kill an Uptown woman who he believed to be a Republican, according to court records and friends of the man who spoke with CWBChicago.

Heath A. Levey, 51, was arrested Wednesday afternoon outside his home in the 4200 block of North Clarendon after police identified him as the swastika- and graffiti-drawing man who had been recorded on surveillance video November 2nd, four days before Election Day.

But friends of Levey on Facebook, contacted by CWBChicago Friday, said he comes from a Jewish family and has been openly gay and a professed Democrat for years.

Court files reviewed by CWBChicago today reveal that days before the 2016 presidential election, Levey was accused of assaulting an Uptown woman and damaging her property.

A 50-year-old woman told police that she looked out her home’s front window around 6:30 p.m. on November 3, 2016, and saw an “enraged” Levey screaming and forcing open her front gate in the 4200 block of North Hazel.

Levey entered the yard, “stomping hard on the ground while menacingly charging” toward the woman’s front door, police said in a report.

Spotting the woman through her front window, Levey reportedly screamed, “I’m going to rape you, you f*cking Republican! I’m calling the CIA. I’m going to kill all the women and children!”

The woman called 911 and Levey fled from the scene, police said at the time.

Prosecutors charged Levey with assault and criminal damage to property and he was served with a no-stalking order to stay away from the victim, according to police records. Levey reached a deal with prosecutors in which he pleaded guilty to damaging the woman’s gate while the state dropped assault charges. He was sentenced to 18 months probation and fined $265 by Judge Clarence Burch.

Levey is now accused of drawing swastikas on a brick pillar in front of a 65-year-old man’s home in the 800 block of West Eastwood and drawing swastikas and references to the CIA on the garage and fence of a 67-year-old woman who lives nearby. He has been served with a no-stalking order to protect both victims, according to police records. The swastikas and other drawings were made around 3:30 p.m. on November 2nd, four days before this year's election.

Judge David Navarro set bail for Levey at $10,000 and ordered him to go on electronic monitoring if he is released.

I'm going to go out on a limb and call this one a hoax in advance. Too many SJW buttons pushed...
Empire star Jussie Smollett was viciously attacked in Chicago early Tuesday in what police are investigating as a possible hate crime. The African-American actor, who is openly gay and plays gay character Jamal Lyon on Empire, was leaving a Subway restaurant around 2am when he was recognized by two white men in ski masks who referred to him using racial and homophobic slurs and referenced his role on the TV show, reports TMZ. The men struck Smollett in the face, poured a chemical (possibly bleach) on him, and put a rope around his neck a la a noose, according to a police report. TMZ reports the men also yelled, "This is MAGA country" before departing.

Smollett was treated at a hospital for injuries including a fractured rib and released, per TMZ. "Given the severity of the allegations, we are taking this investigation very seriously and treating it as a possible hate crime," reads a police statement, per Entertainment Tonight.

The most reliable local version of the story:
Chicago police were out in force rounding up video and other potential evidence today. As of 2:45 p.m., investigators had not found any footage of the alleged offenders.

Here are a few things that we can share:
• A man who identified himself as "Frank" called 911 around 2:32 a.m. Tuesday from a luxury apartment at 340 East North Water Street.
• The man stated that his friend had been assaulted and battered when he walked outside of his apartment, according to dispatch records. Frank stated that his friend is "well-known" and they want a report. Frank stated that a noose was placed over his friend's neck. There is no mention of bleach in the dispatch record.
• Frank refused EMS services for Smollett, according to dispatch records.
• Officers were on-scene at the apartment for slightly more than an hour.
From experienced observers, the most interesting part of the dispatch records is this: Responding officers never issued a "flash message" to give descriptions of the offenders to units in the field.

Police have made "good progress" in their investigation, according to a CPD source...

The TV actor who reported being attacked in Streeterville early Tuesday by men who made racist and anti-gay comments while tying a rope around his neck and throwing bleach on him asked Chicago police officers to turn off their body cameras after they arrived to take his report, according to a CPD source.

Jussie Smollett, the 36-year-old star of Empire, told police that he was attacked near his friend’s high-rise apartment while walking to get food at the Subway restaurant, 521 North McClurg Court, around 2 a.m.

Crime victims sometimes ask the police to turn off their cameras when officers enter private residences, a police spokesperson said.

In other developments:

• Smollett was still wearing the noose around his neck when police arrived at his friend’s apartment nearly 45 minutes after the attack, according to a police spokesperson. Police took the rope as evidence.

• Chicago police denied an ABC report that the FBI had taken over the investigation. The federal agency is looking into a separate incident in which a threat letter was mailed to Smollett in the past two weeks.

• Smollett was said to be reticent to file a police report even after police arrived.

• Police were summoned to an apartment in the 300 block of East North Water Street after a man who identified himself as a friend of Smollett's called 911 and said that a “well-known” person had been assaulted and battered after leaving his apartment, and they wanted a report. The apartment building is directly across the street from the Sheraton Grand Hotel's main entrance. The block also has a lower level—similar to Wacker Drive—for parking and service access.

• EMS services were declined by the friend. Smollett later took himself to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, police said.

• During his first conversation with police, Smollett did not say that the attackers made "MAGA" comments, a police spokesperson said. That detail was published by TMZ.com and Smollett mentioned it during a follow-up interview with police later in the day, according to the spokesperson.

• Contrary to widespread reports that the alleged attackers were white, Smollett has not identified the attackers by race because the men were masked and wore gloves, according to police.

• Police reviewed video from dozens of public and private surveillance cameras in the Streeterville area. As of 2:45 p.m. they had not seen any images of the attackers. Investigators have found footage of Smollett alone inside the Subway shop.

• Police are asking anyone who has video of the 300 block of East North Water Street recorded between 1 a.m. and 3 a.m. on Tuesday to contact them via CPDTIP.com. Area Central investigators may be reached at 312-747-8382.

Sources via ThatGrapeJuice.net also claim the Empire actor recently received a threatening letter in the mail with “You will die black fag,” written in disturbing ransom-style cutout letters.

Supposedly the FBI is investigating that one.
