ABC And NBC News Video: Redlands, California: Teacher Laura Whitehurst (Citrus Valley High School) Arrested For Sexual Assault After Allegedly Having 16-Year-Old Student’s Baby

The following ABC News video is about Laura Whitehurst. She has been arrested for allegedly having sexual relations with a 16-year-old male student. Worse yet, police say she gave birth to a baby fathered by this student. Whitehurst is currently 28 years old. This video was added to the ABC website on July 3, 2013.

Whitehurst, who was a teacher at Redlands, California’s Citrus Valley High School, was arrested on Monday, July 1, 2013. While the evidence in a case like this is often iffy, at best, there would be virtually no question about it here if a DNA test shows that the student is the baby’s biological father.

The alleged victim is a junior at Citrus Valley High School. Redlands is in San Bernardino County.

On the heels of Laura Whitehurst’s arrest, at least two more alleged victims have come forward. One of them is Michael Cooper, who is now 23 years old. You can read more about Cooper and his allegation of sexual impropriety by clicking here and visiting the NBC Philadelphia website. He says he personally does not feel like a victim. However, he came forward to encourage other potential victims to do the same. Because Cooper’s story is from years ago, when Whitehurst was 23, local prosecutors are wondering how many other victims there might be out there.

Yucaipa, California Crime News: Merlin Factor Shot And Killed By Police After Allegedly Brandishing Gun During Traffic Stop

A man has been shot and killed by sheriff’s deputies in Yucaipa, California. They say they shot in self-defense after he brandished a gun during a fight that started during a traffic stop.

Where:

The suspect was driving a car in the area of Third Street and Yucaipa Boulevard.

When:

Saturday, June 29, 2013

Suspect:

Merlin Factor was 26 years old. He lived in Yucaipa. Note that some reports said he is 25. There is some discrepancy there.

Facts:

Authorities received reports that Factor was with a woman. It was alleged that he may have taken the woman against her will after a disturbance that occurred on Second Street. That disturbance started at about 3 in the afternoon.

Because a 911 call was placed, they stopped Factor’s vehicle. From there, deputies say that he started fighting with them. At some point, they say Factor produced a gun. So they shot him.

Justified Shooting?

You always have to determine if the cops are telling the truth first. That is something only an investigation can uncover. But if Factor did, in fact, brandish a gun on this traffic stop, then it is trivially easy to conclude that the police acted in self-defense. According to the San Bernardino Sun article, a woman said she did see Factor with a gun.

NBC Today Show Accident Video: Jet Plane Crashes Into Hangar In Chino, California; No Injured Victims (June 14, 2013)

The following Today show video is about an accident that occurred at the Chino Airport. Chino is a city in San Bernardino County, California. This video aired on the June 14, 2013 episode of Today. The crash occurred on Thursday, June 13, 2013.

A private jet airplane was being tested on the runway, and the pilot or mechanics (it wasn’t clear exactly what happened or who was involved) somehow lost control. The plane crashed straight into the side of a hangar there at Chino Airport.

The fortunate part is that there were no injured victims as a result of this hangar accident.

An article published by Gawker.com says that Grady International, Inc. owns the plane.

The only information provided on the cause is that they were revving up the engine to test it, when the plane suddenly lurched forward for some unknown reason.
