An Oklahoma man had the police called to his home when his Halloween decorations were thought to be a crime scene. Johnnie Mullins put a bloodied fake body underneath his garage door. Rebecca Feuntes was horrified when she saw the body and thought it was an actual crime scene. She called police to report the incident. Mullins explained that he was, “Just trying to scare people”. Police has a good laugh when the arrived at his house. Mullins wasn’t charged with anything since he didn’t technically do anything wrong. He added a second body to his driveway, which makes them look more fake.
Afghan war veteran William D. Swenson was awarded the Medal of Honor at the White House yesterday (October 15th) by President Obama for his actions in battle four years ago. Obama described how Army Captain Swenson repeatedly exposed himself to enemy fire to recover fallen comrades and help save others during a battle against Taliban insurgents in September 2009. Swenson is the second Medal of Honor recipient from that fight — Marine Corporal Dakota Meyer received it two years ago — marking just the second time in half a century that the nation’s highest military honor has been awarded to two survivors of the same battle. The 34-year-old Swenson, who’s been unemployed since leaving the military in February 2011, has requested to return to active duty, which is rare for a Medal of Honor recipient, and his request is being reviewed. He is the sixth living recipient of the Medal of Honor for actions in Iraq or Afghanistan, and the first Army officer to receive it since the Vietnam War.
Here is some video of his heroism in battle:
A Spanish teacher in Dallas was fired after officials found out she posed for Playboy when she was in college.
The 21-year-old posed in the magazine in 2011. She had just turned 18 when she posed nude for Playboy but was not involved with the school at that time.
She was in a YouTube video called, “Coed Cristy Nicole is One Sexy Hunter.” Cristy Nicole was her fake name. In the video she models striped pajamas and lingerie. She talks about hunting being one of her hobbies and her goal was to become a Spanish teacher.
A parent of one of the students said it was a distraction for the woman to be teaching in front of the students, and said many of the kids were looking up photos and videos of her.
There is also a petition that was started by a student for the woman to keep her job.
