Woman ‘burning for Jesus’ sets hair on fire and climbs a tree — where she demands drugs and a ride to Kentucky

Published

A woman was arrested in Tennessee after police said she used the eternal flame at a war memorial to set her hair on fire in a bizarre stunt to obtain drugs and possibly a ride out of state.

Sabrina Lynn Brock then climbed a tree about 12:30 p.m. Monday near the Hawkins County Courthouse — where she claimed she was “burning for Jesus,” demanded OxyContin, and asked to return home to Kentucky.

A police officer managed to convince the 21-year-old Brock to climb down, but she fell and broke several limbs from the tree, reported the Kingsport Daily News.

Brock told the officer she was addicted to the opiate but had run out, and police said she began cursing at passersby who gathered at the scene.

“I said, ‘Wait a minute, you’re burning for Jesus and praying just a minute ago, and now you’re cussing everybody — which is it?,’” said Officer Chris Price. “She said, ‘I’m kind of confused about that myself.’”

Brock was arrested and charged with vandalism, and police discovered afterward that she had apparently stolen some items from a nearby Masonic Lodge before setting her hair and jacket on fire.

She had asked by name for a lodge member she had met the day before at church, witnesses said, then took some pictures off the walls and stole a small medallion and an empty registry book from the 1950s.

Lodge members declined to press charges against Brock, who is from Letcher County, Kentucky, but had been staying with her brother in Tennessee.

Melania Trump scorched by columnist for standing by president’s Thunberg bullying: ‘Indefensible’

Published

on

In a piece for the Washington Post, columnist Karen Tumulty called out first lady Melania Trump for her statement defending her husband's bullying of 16-year-old environmental activist Greta Thunberg in a fit of jealousy after she was selected Time Magazine's Person of the Year.

Responding to a statement from the White House that stated, “BeBest is the First Lady’s initiative, and she will continue to use it to do all she can to help children. It is no secret that the President and First Lady often communicate differently — as most married couples do. Their son is not an activist who travels the globe giving speeches. He is a 13-year-old who wants and deserves privacy,” Tumulty wasn't having it.

BUSTED: Devin Nunes is hiding how he’s paying for all his frivolous lawsuits — which could land him in more trouble

Published

on

On Saturday, the Fresno Bee dived into a lingering question: How does Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) pay for all the lawsuits he is filing against journalists, satirists, and political critics?

"Nunes, R-Tulare, has filed lawsuits against Twitter, anonymous social media users known as Devin Nunes' Cow and Devin Nunes' Mom, a Republican political strategist, media companies, journalists, progressive watchdog groups, a political research firm that worked for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and a retired farmer in Nunes’ own district," noted the Bee.

These lawsuits were mainly filed in Virginia — a state with very loose laws against so-called "SLAPP suits," or meritless lawsuits intended to drown people in legal expenses in retaliation for expressing political opinions. Nunes was assisted in these suits by Steven Biss, a Virginia attorney, and yet except for the suit against the retired farmer, there is no clear record in Nunes' FEC reports of how he paid for the suits.
