Fight-Club

(PCM) And the first rule of “Fight Club” is … well, it appears someone spilled the beans and two NJ daycare works are being accused of running a pre-school “fight club” at a daycare facility with girls and boys aged four through six.

Erica Kenny, 22, and Chanese White, 28 have been accused of instigating fights between the children at Lightbridge Academy in Cranford, NJ and then filming the altercations between the children and posting the fight footage on social media. Once it was brought to the attention of those in charge of Lightbridge Academy both women were immediately terminated.

The videos feature footage of dozens of children fighting, shoving each other to the ground and taking swings on one another. There is still a pending investigation to find out just how long both Kenny and White were making these types of videos.  Both women have been charged with child abuse and Kenny has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child. Both women could serve jail time if convicted.

While none of the children appear to have suffered any serious injuries, Lightbridge Academy has released a statement in regards to the incident saying “As parents and caregivers, we are shocked and saddened by this isolated incident and we have assisted the prosecutor’s office from the start of its investigation into this matter. While no children were physically harmed during this incident, we have a zero tolerance policy for anyone who acts in conflict with the core value of Lightbridge Academy – the safety and well-being of children.”

The First Documented Instance Of Stockholm Syndrome Occurred On This Day In 1973

Stockholm-Syndrome

(PCM) We are sure many of you are aware of the psychological phenomenon known as Stockholm Syndrome during which a kidnapping or hostage victim will begin to feel a certain level of trust and affection towards their captors, however do you know when this condition first originated?

It was on August 23rd, 1973 that the first documented case of Stockholm Syndrome occurred with the victims of a bank robbery at Sveriges Kreditbanken, on Stockholm’s upscale Norrmalmstorg square. The robber, Jan-Erik “Janne” Olsson, took four bank employees hostage and held them in a bank vault for a period of six days until his demands were met.

Olsson demanded that his friend Clark Olofsson, who was currently imprisoned be brought the bank along with 3 million cash, two guns, bulletproof vests, helmets and a fast car. The Swedish government granted Olsson’s request and brought Olofsson to act as point of communication between Olsson and the authorities along with a getaway car.

The authorities agreed on providing the car, but would not allow Olsson and Olofsson to take the hostages with them if they tried to escape. Olsson placed a call to the Swedish Prime Minister saying that he would kill the hostages if they were unable to leave together, however the Prime Minister refused to give in. Then in a move that baffled authorities at the time the Prime Minister received another phone call from one of the hostages saying that she was incredibly displeased with his attitude regarding the situation and requested that he let both the robbers and the hostages leave together.

Throughout the ordeal the hostages became more and more fearful of the authorities escalating the violence than they did with their captors. They began to sympathize with both Olsson and Olofsson and repeatedly told authorities after being rescued that they never felt fearful of Olsson or Olofsson, but were more concerned about the way the authorities were handling the situation. They even claimed that both Olsson and Olofsson were kind to them during the ordeal and even defended them for many of their actions during the hostage situation.

Despite the fact that Olsson threatened to kill the hostages if gas were leaked into the vault, authorities nevertheless used this method to eventually get both Olsson and Olofsson to surrender and the hostages were rescued.   The image above shows the hostages being held in the bank vault through a hole drilled by police from an apartment above just prior to them releasing the gas.

It was after this ordeal that the psychological behavior of the hostages began to be studied as never before had authorities seen victims of a crime actually sympathizing with their captors. The coined the term Stockholm Syndrome to describe the condition that still occurs during certain traumatic events to this day.

State Comes Up With A Brilliant Way To Thwart Theft Of “420” Mile Marker Signs

Idaho-mile-marker

(PCM) It has become a popular trend among stoners to swipe any “420” mile markers found on their local area highways. These mile marker signs are looked at as a trophy of sorts with marijuana enthusiasts. Most of the time once it has been discovered that the mile marker is missing the state would immediately bring in a replacement, only for the same process to happen over and over again.

However, in the state of Idaho those days of replacing endless “420” mile marker signs are over!  They have come up with a brilliant and unique new way to thwart these signs from being stolen in the first place, by not having a “420” sign at all. Instead, in Idaho they are replacing the “420” mile marker sign with one that read “419.9”!

Idaho follows in the footsteps of other states such as Colorado and Washington, who have both taken similar measures with great success in thwarting the theft of their “420” mile marker signs. Not every state has an issue with signs being stolen, mostly because not all states have highways that reach the 420 mile point, however both Colorado and Washington have somewhat relaxed marijuana laws they have seen more thefts of the signs.

Jared Fogle Scandal: Meet The Woman Who Helped Catch Him And Admit “I Was Hoping He Would Get Life In Prison”

Fogle

(Access Hollywood) It may have taken more than four years of secretly recorded conversations to help catch Jared Fogle. After befriending Fogle as a journalist in 2007, Rochelle Herman-Walrond claims she secretly recorded her conversations with the now-former Subway pitchman, as he made shocking confessions about his sexual conduct with minors. It was those conversations, Herman-Walrond said, that eventually led to charges being brought against Fogle.

Now, in a new interview, Herman-Walrond opens up to Access Hollywood alleging she had startling, sometimes disturbing, conversations with Fogle over the years – and she reveals the one comment that first alarmed her. “That he thought middle school girls were hot,” Herman-Walrond told Access’ Stephanie Bauer on Friday, noting that Fogle made the comment with “no prodding whatsoever.”

It was after that comment that Herman-Walrond said she contacted the FBI and began to record her talks with Fogle. “When I first approached the FBI, they said, ‘Is this who I think it is?’ and I said yes, and almost immediately it was a nationwide investigation,” she explained.

“The details he gave me were very explicit, very graphic. He would tell me the ages he preferred. He said the younger, the better. He was saying how age 11 was the age that he would like, and gender specific didn’t make a difference to him – boys or girls,” Herman-Walrond claimed.

When asked about the most shocking detail she heard from Fogle, Herman-Walrond claimed it was “about what he likes little boys to do to him.”

“It was very disturbing. However, I had to keep my composure because I was in the position of trying to get the information so that we could put him away at one point,” she added. “I really felt I had a moral obligation to the public to expose this monster for who he is.” Following Wednesday’s plea deal, Fogle has been on home detention awaiting sentencing, and is required to wear a GPS monitoring device. Fogle is prohibited from being with anyone under the age of 18 without supervision, however, he will be able to see his own children – a 3-year-old son and 1-year-old daughter.

While Herman-Walrond continued to engage Fogle in conversation, she said it eventually became too much to handle when talk turned to her own children. “It was towards the later years in my investigation… there was one specific evening when we were chatting that he said he’d like to put hidden cameras in my children’s rooms and how did I feel about that,” Herman-Walrond claimed. “When he started talking about my children, soon after that I pulled back because it was too much for me. I felt that I had gotten as much information as I could for the FBI and they say the toll that it was taking on me.”

Through it all, Herman-Walrond never saw Fogle express any concern over being caught.

“Never. Never. No regret, no remorse, no thoughts of getting caught,” she contended. “He obviously had no boundaries and he had no idea that what he was doing was that gross and really wrong.”

In the end, while she’s glad Fogle was eventually caught, Herman-Walrond felt perhaps it could’ve been done sooner.

“I actually felt, about the third year into it, that [the FBI] were dragging their feet. I can’t say that they were. They have their steps they need to take… they [completed their investigation] as quickly as they possibly could,” Herman-Walrond said.

As for the plea deal, which may see Fogle spend between 5-12-and-a-half years in prison and pay a total of $1.4 million in restitution to 14 minor victims ($100,000 to each), Herman-Walrond said she was hoping for a steeper penalty.

“I was hoping he would get life in prison,” she suggested.

Fogle’s attorney declined to comment on her allegations. The FBI told Access that they cannot confirm or comment on Herman-Walrond’s involvement in the investigation.
