Phoenix baby bent in half by father has died, police say

Charges for a man accused of abusing his infant son because he was crying will likely be upgraded now that the 6-month-old boy has died, reports CBS affiliate KPHO-TV. Police arrested Robert Anthony Resendiz, 30, on Dec. 19 after his 6-month-old son was taken to Phoenix Children's Hospital with injuries doctors deemed "not survivable."

In an interview with police, Resendiz allegedly "admitted to pressing the infant's legs over his head and bending his body in order to stop the victim from crying," according to the police report. He allegedly told police he used about 65 percent of this strength while applying pressure to the baby.



A Florida mayor quits after using dead people’s IDs for handicap parking, cops say

The mayor of Davenport has resigned about a week after the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office arrested her and accused her of using identities stolen from dead people to park in handicap spots.

Deputies received a tip in November that Bradley, 60, wasn’t registered to have a handicap tag but was parking in the designated spots at Davenport City Hall anyway. An investigation and search of her home revealed that she had two handicap placards, that were issued to two separate victims, in her possession.


The 33-year-old who tried to trick the Washington Post with a fake sexual harassment story has a long history of sting operations backfiring

A woman who posed as a victim of Roy Moore, the embattled Republican Alabama Senate candidate whose campaign has been roiled by multiple allegations of misconduct, appeared to be involved in a sting operation meant to disgrace The Washington Post, the newspaper reported Monday.

The attempted sting operation failed after Post reporters discovered the woman, who identified herself as Jaime Phillips, was actually working for an organization called Project Veritas, led by the conservative activist James O'Keefe.


Uber concealed cyberattack that exposed 57 million people's data

Hackers stole the personal data of 57 million customers and drivers from Uber Technologies Inc., a massive breach that the company concealed for more than a year.

SC Cop Charged With Murder in Unarmed Man Shooting

A white man who was the police chief in a small South Carolina town has been charged with murder in the 2011 shooting death of an unarmed black man.

9th Circuit Judge Alex Kozinski steps down after accusations of sexual misconduct

Alex Kozinski, a prominent voice on the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, retired abruptly Monday in the face of more than a dozen reports of sexual misconduct.

Kozinski, who served more than three decades on the appeals court, faced allegations that he showed clerks pornography, improperly touched women and kept a chart of his college sexual partners.


The Depth of Roy Moore’s Deceit

On Sunday, Roy Moore wrapped up his campaign with another volley of falsehoods. In an interview with The Voice of Alabama Politics, he denied knowing any of the nine female accusers shown in a campaign ad by his opponent, Doug Jones. At this point, anyone who still trusts Moore’s denials probably can’t be swayed. But for those who are on the fence—and for senators who must decide whether to investigate Moore, should he win Tuesday’s election—it’s important to be clear about the extent of Moore’s deceit.


Federal employees stole data from Homeland Security

Three employees of the inspector general's office for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) are accused of stealing a computer system that contained around 246,000 employees' personal data. That information included names, social security numbers and dates of birth, USA Today reports, and one of the suspects is also said to have had in their possession around 159,000 agency case files. The data breach was reported to DHS officials in May and acting DHS Secretary Elaine Duke decided in August to notify the employees whose information was included in the stolen data.

Congress crams unfinished agenda into final days

Like a student who waited until the night before a deadline, lawmakers resuming work Monday will try to cram two years of leftover business into two weeks, while also seeking to avoid a government shutdown.

Their to-do list includes keeping the government running into the new year, renewing expired tax breaks for individuals and businesses and approving a defense policy measure that has passed for more than 50 years in a row.

Carbon County Sheriff James Cordova is the subject of a criminal probe alleging that he used his county-issued credit card to help pay for his move from Price to St. George, where he recently bought a home.

An investigator in Strate's office, working with police from other agencies, conducted surveillance on Cordova and documented his use of the county pickup and a sheriff's office search and rescue trailer to move his personal belongings to his St. George home, the prosecutor said.

Hundreds of passengers aboard a Royal Caribbean cruise ship, which left from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on December 11 became ill during their trip.

Some of those who were sick got medical treatment, but others didn’t due to limited medical staff, passenger Victoria Nolan told WPLG. She noted that people couldn’t control their vomit and were getting sick in elevators before they could make it to the doctor. Nolan—who was traveling with 15 relatives, of which six became ill—made it to the medical area, but decided to not seek treatment after being told she’d have to wait in line for more than four hours.

Behind closed doors, President Trump has revived a conspiracy theory that his predecessor Barack Obama was not born in the U.S., according to a report.
