    Former Indiana University Student Gets One Day in Jail for Raping Two Women

    A former Indiana University student charged with raping two women will get off with a year of probation and one day in jail, WXIN reports.

    John Enochs took a plea deal and was sentenced Thursday, pleading guilty to misdemeanor battery. According to the New York Daily News, it’s unclear why prosecutors decided to drop the rape charges — felonies punishable by up to 16 years in prison — against Enochs. But that didn’t stop the sentence from immediately being compared to the infamously lenient one issued against Stanford swimmer Brock Turner earlier this month.

    Gorilla Incident: Mother Argued with Son To Not Go in to Be with Gorilla

    The family of a boy who entered a Cincinnati Zoo gorilla’s enclosure last weekend — spurring zoo officials to shoot and kill the animal — will be the focus of an investigation into the incident, Cincinnati police said Tuesday.

    The 3-year-old boy was dragged across a moat by the 450-pound gorilla on Saturday. After a 10-minute encounter, Cincinnati Zoo officials shot and killed the beloved and endangered gorilla, named Harambe. The boy was not seriously injured. The mother stated her son walked away with a concussion and scratches.
    Cincinnati police said Tuesday that their review “is only regarding the actions of the parents/family that led up to the incident and not related to the operation or safety of the Cincinnati Zoo.”
    AT2W’s Remarks: We say that the mother should have been watching him more closely. Even though we can’t believe there was an actual way for the child to get into the moat with the gorilla, the parents are liable for the incident. Yes, the gorilla should not have had to be killed but the child had to be saved. Point blank. We stand by the zoo making the decision to kill the gorilla because a child’s life was in danger and if not the news would be worse for them from the loss of a human life. We do believe the parents should face some kind of repercussions for their neglect. 
    Child’s mother faces backlash
    Meanwhile the child’s mother, who works at a child care center for toddlers and preschoolers in Cincinnati, has been the target of much public anger after zoo officials felt forced to shoot 17-year-old Harambe, an endangered western lowland silverback, to protect her son.
    Some suggested the boy’s parents should be held criminally responsible for the incident. An online petition seeking “Justice for Harambe” earned more than 100,000 signatures in less than 48 hours.
    “This beautiful gorilla lost his life because the boy’s parents did not keep a closer watch on the child,” the petition states.

    The Child Argued with Mom About Going in to see the Gorilla
    The tragedy happened after the boy told his mother he was going to get into the moat, and the mother admonished him to behave before being distracted by other children with her, Kimberly Ann Perkins O’Connor told CNN.
    “The little boy himself had already been talking about wanting to go in, go in, get in the water and his mother is like, ‘No you’re not, no you’re not,’ ” O’Connor said. “Her attention was drawn away for seconds, maybe a minute, and then he was up and in before you knew it.”

    Former Pastor Jack Schapp Being Sued for Investment Fraud with the First Baptist Church of Hammond

    Former members of First Baptist Church of Hammond argue in a federal lawsuit that the church is responsible for an investment fraud run by a deacon hired by the church to provide financial advice.

    The former parishioners – Joseph and Crystal Elwell, formerly of Schererville, and Deborah and Robert Baldwin, formerly of Crown Point – say in the lawsuit, filed Thursday in the U.S. District Court in Hammond, that former Pastor Jack Schaap and Thomas Kimmel tricked them into investing more than $400,000 into what turned out to be a Ponzi scheme.
