Fugitive teen asks authorities to use more flattering ‘wanted’ photo while still on the run

Published

A teenager on the run from police in Australia checked in on social media to ask her pursuers to please use a more flattering image than her mugshot in their search for her.

BuzzFeed News reported Sunday about Sydney teenager Amy Sharp, 18, who escaped police custody on Aug. 19, then commented on a news outlet’s Facebook post calling for citizens to be on the lookout.

Sydney’s Channel 7 News posted late last week about Sharp’s escape from custody, saying, “Police are searching for an escapee who fled from Surry Hills Corrective Services Cell Complex last week. Shortly after 3pm on Friday 19 August 2016, 18-year-old Amy Sharp fled from Corrective Services officers.”

“Amy is considered a low risk to the public and was in custody for property offences. Police have urged members of the public not to approach Amy, but to contact triple zero (000) immediately. Anyone with information on Amy’s whereabouts is urged to contact Crime Stoppers,” the post said, which featured mugshots of a bedraggled-looking Sharp wrapped in a pink blanket with bloodshot eyes.

Sharp commented on the post not long after it was published, providing a photo of herself smiling and writing, “(C)an you use this photo, please and thank you. Yours Truly, Amy Sharp xx.”

Police caught up with Sharp and arrested her again on Friday. She appeared in Parramatta Bail Court on Saturday.

WATCH: Lewandowski’s lawyer freaks out, tries to block Congress from asking any further questions

Published

During the House Judiciary Committee testimony of President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski about the Russia investigation, Lewandowski's attorney frantically crashed the witness table and demanded that Congress stop asking questions of his client.

"Mister Chairman, as you know I am counsel for Mr. Lewandowski—" began the attorney.

"You are not a witness and you should not be seated at that table," cut in House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) sharply.

"I understand that," said Lewandowski's attorney. "I will leave after I register a formal protest based upon the debate that I heard. These seem to be unauthorized questions and I know you choose your words carefully—"

Lewandowski’s testimony will let Democrats build Nixon-like articles of impeachment: Ex-prosecutor

Published

on

As President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski combatively testified before the House Judiciary Committee, he admitted that Trump asked him to communicate to then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions that former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation must be shut down. Aside from that revelation, most of the testimony was unproductive, with Lewandowski lashing out at members of Congress and running interference for the president.

But as former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti wrote on Twitter, these outbursts — and the fact that Trump sanctioned the way that Lewandowski behaved in the hearing — could be the basis for Democrats to write up articles of impeachment against Trump similar to those drafted against Richard Nixon in 1974:

Putin aims a weaponized barb at Trump over Saudi attack – and hits the mark

Published

on

Russian President Vladimir Putin joked this week about selling defense systems to Riyadh following weekend attacks on Saudi oil facilities. The gag was aimed at US President Donald Trump and it hit the mark with the precision of a guided weapon.

It was a masterful piece of trolling by the czar of trolls – a snide, disparaging jibe with an element of truth twisted into absurdity for maximum effect and laughs. At a joint press conference with his Turkish and Iranian counterparts in Ankara on Monday, Putin cast his bait into the volatile Persian Gulf region just days after devastating attacks on Saudi oil facilities exposed the limits of the Gulf kingdom’s expensive defense systems.
