Michigan lawmakers considering bill to arm teachers

  Michigan lawmakers considering bill to arm teachers Michigan lawmakers are considering several gun-related measures in the wake of a deadly shooting at a Florida high school, including arming teachers and confiscating guns from those with mental illness.One bill would permit teachers and staff to carry firearms, the Detroit Free Press reported.President Trump has been strongly calling for arming teachers and said that if a teacher inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., was armed on Feb. 14, then the gunman would have never attempted the massacre that left 17 dead.

Connolly who was taken into custody by Ann Arbor police after he totaled his SUV, which appears to have been university-issued. In addition to ruining a parked car, Connolly reportedly resisted arrest and was visibly intoxicated after leaving the vehicle. On top of all that, he was found barefoot and bloodied after the hit-and-run.

Attorney: Relatives still have 'great love' for student charged with killing parents

  Attorney: Relatives still have 'great love' for student charged with killing parents A Plainfield, Ill., teen charged with fatally shooting his parents at Central Michigan University last week still has "great love" and support from his relatives, an attorney said Monday. James Eric Davis Jr., 19, remained hospitalized after being arrested Saturday and charged with two counts of murder and a weapons violation in the deaths of James Eric Davis Sr. and Diva Davis.

According to the official police report, Connolly told one officer that he would "put him in a wheelchair," and proceeded to scream profanities at lab technicians and other law enforcement personnel. According to one witness, he had to be restrained to a chair after wildly swinging at an officer and striking him in the arm.

After being taken to the hospital due to his injuries and getting handcuffed to his bed, Connolly allegedly grabbed one officer by the throat. Shortly after, he bit a UM emergency technician on the arm. (He did not break skin, according to the victim's account.)

House panel expands probe of sexual abuse of young athletes

  House panel expands probe of sexual abuse of young athletes <p>The U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee said Thursday it had sent requests for information to the U.S. Olympic Committee and 48 national governing bodies of various sports and Michigan State University, expanding the committee’s investigation into sexual abuse within organized sports.</p>A Senate Commerce Committee panel sent a similar request last month as part of a separate investigation. Both committees sent initial letters in January and the House panel has said it plans to convene a hearing on the issue.

The strangest part in all this, however? The university has not made the decision to fire Connolly.

Connolly is the second major figure around the Wolverines' football program to be arrested for DUI during Jim Harbaugh's tenure as head coach; associate AD Jim Minick was rung up back in 2015. Michigan football's lack of action after these details surfaced is not a good look for the program, which needs to prove that it has zero tolerance for such dangerous behavior.

But take a step back for a moment-- is this story the craziest thing you've read today, or the craziest thing you've read this month?

New details emerge in 1986 slaying of 15-year-old Kingston girl .
Massachusetts State Police traveled to North Carolina after receiving a tip that the man now facing a murder charge in a cold case hosted a gathering the night Tracy Gilpin was last seen alive in 1986, according to court documents. That detail was provided in an affidavit in support of an application for an arrest warrant for Michael Hand, 61, a former Kingston man who stands accused of killing the 15-year-old Gilpin more than three decades ago.
