A group entered the convenience store near Figueroa Street and El Segundo Boulevard, with surveillance footage showing the looters shouting at each other, on August 15. The gang of people ransacked the store while shouting, completely destroying the COVID-19 safety screen that had been set up to grab as much as they could in Los Angeles, California. They can be seen running across the store and grabbing drinks, cigarettes, lottery tickets, bags of chips, and other items. According to the Los Angeles Police Department, the suspects also started throwing items at them, with around 100 people involved in the chaos.
Unrepentant Alec Baldwin says he does not think he will face ANY charges for shooting dead Rust cinematographer and whines the accident has 'taken years off his life': Armorer says sheriff did NOT investigate how live rounds wound up on set
Hannah Gutierrez Reed's statement comes as Alec Baldwin continues to blame her and prop master Seth Kenney for the live rounds ending up in the gun. Baldwin is awaiting a decision from prosecutors in New Mexico who must decide whether or not he should be criminally charged over the accident that occurred last October. They are yet to make a ruling, and are now no doubt weighing a damning FBI report released last week that said the gun could not have possible gone off without Baldwin deliberately firing it.
Berkeley co-op bans WHITE PEOPLE from common areas to 'avoid white violence and presence' and all students trying to sign in are asked to declare their race
An off-campus co-op for students at the University of California, Berkeley named the 'Person of Color Theme House' has banned white guests from entering common areas of the house. A list of house rules revealed that occupants were told 'many POC moved here to be able to avoid white violence and presence, so respect their decision of avoidance if you bring white guests.' While the student house aims to have an 'inclusive' environment, the rules specifically state 'white guests are not allowed in common spaces,' according to the list, which was posted on Reddit. The accommodation, which is located close to Berkeley's campus, is a five-story, 30-room home that can house up to 56 students. But the 'rules' which were leaked on social media have caused outrage - with many people slamming the rules as 'racist' as others came forward and revealed their experience living in the co-op.
Finland's married 'Party PM' Sanna Marin, 36, defends her hedonistic lifestyle, insists 'nothing inappropriate' happened with male pop star during 4am dance in nightclub and takes a drug test
Sanna Marin, Finland's party prime minister, has today defended her actions after she was filmed enjoying a wild night out with friends earlier this month. Ms Marin, a 36-year-old married mother-of-one, said 'nothing inappropriate' happens in footage which captured her dancing hip-to-hip in a nightclub with a male pop star at 4am, and said that 'everyone needs a fun night out'. Ms Marin also denied ever taking drugs but said she had submitted to a test anyway to prove her innocence after more footage, captured earlier the same evening, caught one of her friends using a slang term for cocaine. Journalists questioned whether she would have been in a position to make snap decisions if a crisis had begun during the party, but Ms Marin shot back that her entire time in office has been during a 'crisis - including Covid an the Ukraine war - and that she has never been called upon in the middle of a Saturday night.

Apple security flaw threatens 'everything we hold dear': BILLIONS across globe scramble to update iPhones and Macs as tech giant reveals hackers can take control of devices and access bank accounts... so have YOU updated your software yet?
Apple users were today urged to update their devices after the firm disclosed serious security vulnerabilities for iPhones, iPads and Macs that could potentially allow attackers to take complete control of these devices. The world's most valuable company said it is 'aware of a report that this issue may have been actively exploited' and released two security reports about the issue on Wednesday, but they have only now received more widespread attention. Security experts told users to update affected devices - the iPhone 6S and later models; and several models of the iPad , including the 5th generation and later, all iPad Pros, the iPad Mini 4 and later and the iPad Air 2 and later. The update, iOS 15.6.1, also applies to the iPod Touch 7th generation. In addition, Mac computers on MacOS Monterey are affected - with users urged to download '12.5.1'. The issues were found by an anonymous researcher in 'WebKit', the browser engine that powers Safari; and 'Kernel', which is the core of the operating system.
Welcome to the jungle: Inside Siegfried and Roy's fantastical 'Little Bavaria' compound in Las Vegas, which housed magicians' menagerie of animals and was 'opulent to the point of vulgarity' - as it's set to be DEMOLISHED and turned into apartments
The sprawling 100-acre oasis in the middle of the Las Vegas desert, once a refuge to the world's most famous magic act, Siegfried and Roy - is set to be demolished and turned into a 334-unit apartment complex. The staggering compound was home to the magicians for over 30 years and contained a hideaway of interconnected mansions through miles of walkways. It features a 'translucent chapel' replete with a bell tower, an aquatic center, an authentic Bavarian cottage which served as an homage to their German roots and a complex to house their menagerie of animals and large cats. Within the walls was a surreal fantasy land that displayed their priceless Persian rugs, crystal candle holders, carved wood furnishings, a clock owned by Napoleon, gold candelabras that were a gift from Liberace and a jewel-encrusted sword that is said to have once belonged to Genghis Khan. One visitor once described it as 'opulent to the point of vulgarity.' It was not uncommon, that at any given point you might bump into a Himalayan tiger, or perhaps a miniature donkey whether indoors or out. Their animal kingdom had virtual run of the place with their own Olympic-sized pool and air-conditioned accommodation.
Blast at Putin's Crimea airfield wiped out half of his Black Sea combat jets with recent explosions behind Russian lines having 'significant psychological effect' on Kremlin leadership, say Western officials
More than half of the Russian navy's Black Sea Fleet combat jets were put out of action in blasts last week at the Russian-operated Saky military airfield in western Crimea, an area Moscow previously considered secure, according to Britain's Ministry of Defence (MoD). The Kremlin is busy seeking to allocate blame for the debacle and President Vladimir Putin is struggling to hide Ukraine's success from the Russian population. This comes as thousands of Russians fleeing Crimea have streamed into the country, officials said on Friday, and as a fire at a munitions depot near the Russian village of Timonovo has led to the evacuation of two villages in Russia's Belgorod region. Roughly 1,100 people reside in the villages of Timonovo and Soloti, around 15 miles from the Ukrainian border. There were no casualties in the blaze late Thursday, Belgorod regional governor Vyacheslav Gladkov said.
'Why would anyone want to be a cop in America today?' Furious police union shares footage of two NYPD cops being subjected to racist abuse while patrolling the streets of Eric Adams' rotting Big Apple
The video was shared on Twitter yesterday and admonished by the Detectives Endowment Association, one of the largest police unions in New York City. It shows a black male cop and Hispanic female cop trying to speak with several people in the street, but being berated with insults and racist slurs. The man behind the camera called the male officer the N-word, the female a 'fake Puerto Rican', and in one disgusting aside, told her to 'suck his black d**k b***h'. More distressing than the foul-mouthed tirade is the officers' response - they calmly walked away, without so much as raising their voices.
6,000 New York hotel beds for illegal migrants on the taxpayers' dime? You ain't seen nothing yet . . . especially when Joe Biden is your doorman, writes MAY MAILMAN
Growing up in small-town Western Kansas, I couldn't afford to travel to New York until I was 21. When I did make my grand arrival, it was on a Chinatown bus. I paid for it out of my own pocket. Then I asked a cab to take me to my hotel near the Waldorf Astoria. The cab driver, however, dropped me off at the Waldorf, where it was swiftly made known that I, in my Gap dress and department store boots, was certainly not a guest there. That's not the tale for the busload of migrants who are being shipped into the city from Texas and Arizona - after first illegally entering the country -- and being housed, on the taxpayers' dime, at fancy New York City hotels. On Thursday, New York City's Department of Social Services requested an extra 5,000 hotel rooms to accommodate New York's newest guests. That's on top of the 1,000 rooms the city announced they'd be renting last week at places like The Row, a four-star Times Square resort.
You're welcome, New York: Londoners warn the planned congestion charge for the Big Apple will create MORE traffic and pollution and businesses say expect profits to fall 70%
London's business owners and motorists have warned New York City faces a world of pain should it implement a congestion charge similar to that seen in the capital. Plans to carve up parts of the Big Apple and implement charges of up to $23 (£18.95) to enter central Manhattan were outlined yesterday as the iconic American city aims to slash the number of cars on its gridlocked roads. New York Governor Kathy Hochul is ploughing ahead with the controversial idea in a bid to raise billions - following in the footsteps of London's Transport for London which has raised more than £4bn from the congestion charge since 2003.
California dermatologist accused of poisoning her husband at their $2.7m mansion with Drano-laced lemonade is ordered to stay away from their two kids by judge while out on $30,000 bail
Yue Yu, 45, also known as 'Emily', was allegedly caught on camera pouring the drain cleaner into husband Jack Chen's drink, in newly-released footage by Chen's attorneys. Chen, 53, brought police in the city of Irvine photos of Yu supposedly pouring the Drano into his lemonade. She was arrested last week after he accused her of doing it on three separate occasions. He has since filed for divorce and asked a judge for a restraining order against the children, ages seven and eight.
The death of downtown: San Francisco, Cleveland and Portland have seen activity drop by almost 50 percent - as soaring crime in the Democrat-run cities forces workers, tourists and homeowners away
San Francisco, Cleveland and Portland have the most deserted downtowns in the US as soaring crime rates in the Democratic cities scare away workers and tourists. In a recent study by the Institute of Governmental Studies at the University of California Berkeley, San Francisco's downtown area was found to be only 31 percent active over the spring of 2022 when compared to pre-pandemic levels, with Cleveland at 36 percent and Portland at 41 percent. Meanwhile, cities like Salt Lake City, Utah, Bakersfield, California and Columbus Ohio are enjoying the fastest comeback, seeing their downtown activity go up by more than 110 percent since 2019.

Billionaire PayPal founder Peter Thiel loses bid to build $10m 'Doomsday prepper' mansion in remote New Zealand beauty spot after eco-protesters successfully launched legal challenge
Peter Thiel, who is worth an estimated $7.7billion, wanted to build a sprawling mansion containing a spa, meditation pod and library near Lake Wanaka on New Zealand's pristine South Island. But he faced strong opposition from environmental groups and locals who argued that it would 'destroy our beautiful lake environment'. On Thursday, Queenstown-Lakes district council ruled against Thiel - declining planning permission for the 'eco-lodge' on the basis that it would 'be of a sufficiently large scale and impact that it will draw the eye and be inappropriately dominant.' Inspectors were said to be particularly concerned about the size of the property and landscaped surroundings - which would cover 18 acres - and the fact that it would be visible from multiple vantage points around the lake.

Life after General Lee: As Dukes of Hazzard star Catherine Bach, 68, is pictured in LA sporting a VERY different look from her Daisy Duke days, FEMAIL reveals what happened to her action-packed comedy co-stars - 40 YEARS after show premiered
Catherine became a global sex symbol when she starred as the stunning Daisy Duke in the popular action-comedy series The Dukes of Hazzard back in the late '70s and '80s. But on Sunday, the now-68-year-old actress swapped her iconic hotpants for leggings as she stepped out for some retail therapy in Los Angeles, California. The CBS show first premiered in 1979, and it also starred Tom Wopat, John Schneider, Denver Pyle, James best, and Sorrell Booke. It went on for seven seasons before it concluded in February 1985, and it remained one of the most top-rated shows during much of its run. As Catherine is spotted out and about in LA sporting a very different look than she did during her Daisy Duke days, FEMAIL uncovered what she - and the rest of her castmates - have been up to over the last 37 years. Some of them have faced a slew of controversies over the last three-and-a-half decades - including arrests, substance abuse, and multiple divorces.

Earning its stripes: Incredible moment zebra sinks its teeth into a crocodile's throat after the predator lay in wait to attack herd crossing a river in Kenya
The zebras were crossing the Mara River in the Maasai Mara, Kenya when a group of crocodiles sprung their trap. But one predator got more than it bargained for when one of the zebras bit back. One image showed a number of crocodiles laying in wait in the water as the herd of zebras was crossing through, and another captured the moment the crocodile leapt out of the water in an attempt to make the zebra its meal. But the most startling moment of the series shows the zebra biting the crocodile in the throat before the predator recoiled in pain, allowing the zebra to get out of the Mara River in the Maasai Mara, and to the safety of dry land. Other members of its herd were not so lucky, however, with pictures showing the black and white stripes of some of the animals disappearing into the river amidst a writhing of water, scales and teeth.
