A Baby Is Dead Because EMT Refused To Do Her Job

Ann Marie Thomas faces up to a year in prison if convicted of her misdemeanor charge of willfully neglecting her duties as an EMT.

Thomas was called to an emergency call about a baby who had stopped breathing in Detroit. The 911 dispatcher informed Thomas there was an 8-month-old baby who was struggling to breathe, but Thomas didn’t seem too concerned about saving the life.

“When she arrived, instead of rushing to help save the infant’s life, Thomas parked her emergency vehicle around the corner from the house,” reads a document from the civil suit filed against Thomas. “Thomas then waited six minutes before telling dispatchers that she didn’t want to help, stating: ‘I’m not about to be on no scene 10 minutes doing CPR, you know how these families get.'”

The dispatcher apparently tried to convince Thomas to help. “I’m going to need you to make that scene. You’re going to have to make patient contact,” they pleaded.
Another ambulance was called to the scene to transport the baby to the hospital, who died in hospital the next morning.

The child’s mother is also being charged with three counts of first degree child abuse and felony murder in connection with her daughter’s death.

Judge Sees Suspect’s Family Laughing During Manslaughter Sentencing, Takes Immediate Action

While her family member was being sentenced for killing a man in a car crash while driving under the influence, Amanda Kosal’s friends couldn’t stop laughing. Even though the victim’s family was present and her own family member was going to spend a long time behind bars, something was so funny they couldn’t stop laughing.

Now the woman from Michigan, has learned her lesson. The judge didn’t take kindly to her rude laughing and sentenced her to jail for contempt of court. And if you like to see bad people get what they deserve, you need to watch the footage from the court room where you get to see the laughing woman being taken away to jail…

Kosal was about to learn her fate after she killed 31-year-old Jerome Zirker in June 2016. As Judge Qiana Lillard was preparing to sentence Kosal to 3 to 15 years of prison, she noticed that two women were laughing like hyenas.

Outraged that the people were laughing, Judge Lillard ordered them out of her court room.

“It’s time for him to go. And I don’t know who he is, but whoever can sit here at a tragic moment like this and laugh and smile when somebody has lost a family member … in the entire time that Mr. Zirker’s sister was speaking that clown, and that’s what I am going to call him, a clown, was sitting there smiling and laughing,” she said.

But Lillard was not done. She immediately called out the other disrespectful laughing hyena and commanded her to leave as well.

“And you can go, too. Because if you don’t know how to act, you can go to jail. So leave. Anybody that can sit there and laugh and smirk — take her, she’s going in the back — anybody else wanna go? You can go, too. This is a court of law,” she said, WDIV reported.

“And these are very serious matters. I understand that you all are very upset because your loved one is going to prison but guess what, she’s going to prison for the choices that she made. These people are here grieving, saddened because a senseless act took away their loved one and you’re sitting here acting like it’s a joke?”

While she left the courtroom, the laughing woman smirked at the judge. At that final act of disrespect, Judge Lillard sentenced the rude person to 93 days in prison.

“Your disruptive and disrespectful behavior disrupted today’s proceedings and you, ma’am, are going to the Wayne County Jail for 93 days,” she said.

Most people have praised Judge Lillard for her no-nonsense decision. Americans like to see bad people put in jail.

“I admire this Lady, yes the Judge. We need a lot more of folks like her! WOW!! AWSOME!!! Starting with parents, maybe? Just sayin,” one Mad World News reader commented on the site’s Facebook page.

Teens See Pretty Girl In Car Next To Them. Then They Notice She’s Mouthing ‘Help Me’

iends Aaron Arias, 19 and Jamal Harris, 17, were driving around together when they noticed a pretty young woman sitting in the backseat of a car next to them.

Being young, hormonal teenagers, the boys tried to make eye contact with her. It was then that they noticed something that gave them chills.

When the young woman saw them, she started mouthing something that the boys swore looked like “help me.”

They immediately sensed that something was wrong, so they called the police as they followed the other car.

“Yes, I’m on the highway. I’m witnessing a robbery. Not a robbery, a kidnapping,” Aaron told the dispatcher. “It’s me and another guy. So we’re checking out the girl in the backseat because we’re like, ‘OK, she’s kind of attractive’, and then all of a sudden the guy is turned back, looking at us.”

Thankfully, police were able to track the car down and rescue the woman. When the boys heard her terrifying story they were so glad they had trusted their guts and called the police.

It turned out the 25-year-old woman had been kidnapped at gunpoint by 37-year-old Charles Atkins Lewis and forced into his car. Thanks to Aaron and Jamal’s quick thinking, the woman was saved and Lewis was arrested and charged with aggravated kidnapping and aggravated robbery.

After the rescue, Aaron and Jamal met with the woman they had helped rescue so she could thank them.

“I would describe it as the best hug I have ever gotten,” Aaron said.

Dad Finds Out About Daughter’s Abusive BF, Takes Matters Into Own Hands

A young woman in Missouri was brutally beaten by her boyfriend, causing her to permanently lose vision in one eye. In response, the woman’s father is said to have offered a $500 reward to anyone that can provide information on the whereabouts of the suspect.

Chelsea Simmons, 20, was nearly killed by her boyfriend, Cedric Powe, 27, during an altercation.

“Apparently he choked her until she passed out, brought her back, then choked her again and continually stomped on her head,” said Simmons’ stepmother, Melissa Zack. “She’s scared and she probably will be forever.”

Powe, known by friends as Moe, reportedly fled to the south side of St. Louis. Mark Zack, Simmons’ father, offered $500 to anybody that could provide police with information that will help them track down his daughter’s attacker.

“He needs to be caught so that this doesn’t happen to anyone else, and I don’t have to worry about it happening to her ever again,” said Simmons’ stepmother.

Doctors say that Simmons was just minutes away from certain death, and will likely endure pain from this incident for the rest of her life.

Powe has a lengthy history of criminal activity, including a 2008 arrest that resulted in a domestic battery charge, along with obstruction of justice, reports WJBD. Powe pleaded guilty to the obstruction of justice charge and was sentenced to one year in prison, but because of his guilty plea, the domestic battery charge was dismissed.
According to reports, Simmons filed a restraining order against Powe on Dec. 27, but both the families and authorities realize that may not necessarily protect the young woman. Powe has a history of violating an order of protection, including incidents in 2008 and 2009, reports MVN News.

Dogs have proven time and time again that they are truly heroes. But this story definitely takes the lead when it comes to adorable rescue stories.

On Friday morning, Peanut, an adorable little pup, began going crazy for absolutely no reason, or so her owners thought.

“She was running up and down the stairs, barking and yelping. She then went and got my husband, who was in the garage working on some projects, and alerted him that she wanted to go outside. He said he could hear her running around upstairs but didn’t understand why,” said Peanut’s owner on Facebook.

After he finally let her outside, Peanut went sprinting for the fields, which surrounded the couple’s house. Peanut’s father began chasing after her, not wanting her to go too far. But it wasn’t long till Peanut came to a stop.

When he finally caught up to her, he saw that Peanut had stopped right in front of a small girl, with no clothes on, and she was curled up in a ball, shivering from the cold. He was left in pure shock.

He scooped the little girl up, wrapping her in his sweatshirt, and carried her back to the house. As he arrived, he immediately called 911, letting them know of what he found.

By the time police and an ambulance arrived, the girl was able to say one word, “doggie.”

The little girl and her sister were taken into custody by the Child Protective Services, after they deemed their home was ‘unsafe and unsanitary.’

This little pup is truly a hero for alerting her owners that something wrong has happened. She ended up saving two lives, and has now saved them from any more trauma.

We are so proud of Peanut and all she did for this little girl! If you are too, SHARE this post!


When this police officer received a call about a shoplifter, he didn’t think much of it. But when he arrived at the scene, he was faced with a heartbreaking situation.

Officer Milton arrived at a Family Dollar Store, where the employees were holding the suspect. The suspect? A 12 year old girl who was caught stealing a pair of $2 shoes for her 5 year old sister.

She tried to explain that her sister needed new shoes, desperately, but her family couldn’t afford them.

The officer decided to drive the girl home, and met with her family. There he found out that she was the oldest of 4 children, and that the mother was a stay-at-home mom because the family couldn’t afford daycare.

She went on to say that her husband has a job, but he doesn’t make a lot of money, and it is hard on the family. Milton could easily see the tough situation the family was in. So he decided to show them some kindness.

He bought 4 pizzas, and had them delivered to the house, along with drinks. He wanted to make sure they were taken care of for the night. But he did another thing that only a humble person would do. He did not want any recognition for his actions.

But the family wanted everyone to know what this officer did for them. He did such a selfless thing, and we cannot thank him enough.

If you are thankful for this officer’s actions, SHARE this post!

Parents Charged After Child Found In Shocking Condition

A Panama City Beach, Florida, couple was arrested after their 6-year-old child’s teacher found bed bugs in his hair and lunch.

Helena and James Jones were arrested and charged with child neglect after the teacher’s findings – which lead authorities to discover that not only did the boy weigh just 37 pounds when he was found, but he was also not potty-trained and often came to school in soiled diapers.

In addition, it was found that the boy was overmedicated and that the medication was affecting his ability to walk.

“Not just the fact that he is extremely underweight, but there is concern that he is being overmedicated so defendants can more easily supervise him,” deputies wrote in a report. “The overmedication is contributing to his health issues and is keeping him from learning at school.” School staff had reportedly removed bed bugs from the boy’s hair several times over the course of a year.
Just weeks before the Jones’ were arrested, their house was condemned following a bed bug infestation. The boy’s bed was infested, and blood was found on his sheets from bites. He also defected blood, which authorities believe was due to the medication his parents were giving him.

The family moved back into the condemned home after they were told to leave, AL.com reported.

Many readers expressed outrage and sadness over the incident.

“Terrible. Poor child. School continued to give him meds. How could they let this child suffer so? Monsters he lived with probably knew nothing would be done by the school. I hope and pray the rest of this child’s life will be a good and caring one. Can’t stop the tears,” one Mad World News reader commented on the site’s Facebook page.

“What has happened to the human population! So many, so called people, are regressing instead of progressing in society ! Sickening that children , elderly and animals are the targets of degenerates! Heartbreaking ! Let’s go lawmakers, not only should laws be harsher , but they should be enforced!!!” another added.
Some placed blame on the school, saying that teachers should have been more aware and concerned about the child’s condition and contacted authorities earlier.

“I can’t understand why the teachers and staff didn’t do anything about this situation. Personally I think that all personnel at his school should be prosecuted also. Normally the school system is quick to accuse parents of abuse but in this instance they turned their heads to this poor little boy,” one reader wrote.

“You know that’s not the first day he went to school and look that. That’s just the only day they did something about it. I don’t understand why they sent him home they should have called the authorities right then and there and kept them in the office. No child wants to live in filth or being eaten by bed bugs. The teachers and their parents should be ashamed of themselves,” another added.

This man sobbed, looking at a torn-up pit bull. As the dog approached him, his heart broke

In July 2016, the American Humane Society organized a raid to rescue hundreds of dogs from the fangs of dog-fighting rings.

Of all the terrible cases these animal activists saw, one, in particular, has stayed with them: Stallone’s torn-up face.

Pit bull Stallone is just one dog among countless others who die slow and painful deaths when they’re pitted against one another in the arena.
Stallone’s last moments are a heartbreaking reminder that these dogs aren’t born aggressive. These “fighters” are really just normal dogs who need the same love and care as every other living thing. You can see the goodness in his face.

People who fight dogs are the lowest of the low. Subjecting animals to this kind of brutality is sickening, yet this type of behavior sadly seems to be growing.

Unfortunately, the outcome for dogs like pit bull Stallone is slow and painful deaths as they are trained to fight one another. That’s the reminder here, that Stallone wasn’t born to do this. And most are not born aggressive, but rather are trained to be this way and conditioned to accept aggressiveness as a positive attribute.

It’s so important not to forget his story — to try and prevent more like it!

Service Dog Slammed by Truck, Veteran Watches Fragile Body Fade Before His Eyes

Nov. 22, 2016, started out as just another day for retired Navy Seal John Brophy. He and his dog, a retired service animal named Maggie, were visiting a friend in the Las Olas Isles neighborhood of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

John and Maggie were regular visitors to the area, familiar sights to those living in the neighborhood. It was no surprise when John’s friend took Maggie for a walk.

But that sedate stroll soon ended with a shock. As Maggie rounded a bush and walked out into the road, a truck struck her.

Brophy came running. With the help of his friend, who happened to be an emergency-room nurse, he bundled Maggie into his vehicle and began to drive.

Unsure where to take his beloved pet, he frantically called a friend who urged him to go to Lauderdale Veterinary Specialists, a 24-hour emergency center. At the time, though, he wasn’t sure Maggie would make it.

“Her tongue was just kind of hanging out, her eyes were rolling back,” Brophy told The Sun-Sentinel. “I definitely thought I was losing her.”

Maggie made it, but the doctors at Lauderdale Veterinary Specialists made a terrible discovery during their examination. Not only was she in hypovolemic shock, she had sustained severe damage to her left hind leg.

The leg injured would prove particularly problematic for Maggie. In addition to multiple fractures, one section was so badly pulverized that the bones didn’t even show up on an x-ray.

The veterinarians did the only thing they could. After Maggie was stabilized, they amputated the limb.

Many dogs can function fairly well with only three legs, but Dr. Jennifer Bibevski of Lauderdale Veterinary Services expressed concern that Maggie could eventually develop hip trouble. That was when they took the impressive step of fitting Maggie with her own special prosthesis.

Other than a small limp, Maggie achieved full mobility with her new leg. However, at a cost of $20,000, it wasn’t what anyone would call cheap.

Family and friends chipped in to help Maggie and Brophy. Lauderdale Veterinary Services itself covered the balance of the bill through its The Pet’s Tree of Hope fund, a special provision for pet owners unable to fully pay for an animal’s treatment.

For Brophy, it seemed almost miraculous. “I couldn’t be more thankful for the help, love and support that I have received since the accident,” he told WSVN.

“That’s what we’re here for,” Dr. Bibevski said. “Anything that we can do to help the pets and their owners is what makes our day successful.”
