Jury Rules in Florida 'Stand Your Ground' Case

Newser reports a high-profile "stand your ground" case ended Friday in Florida.

A Florida jury took 6 1/2 hours to convict Michael Drejka of manslaughter.

Drejka had fatally shot Markeis McGlockton in a 2018 dispute over a handicapped parking space.

While McGlockton was unarmed and black, Drejka is white and wasn't initially charged at all.

Drejka could get thirty years' imprisonment for his crime.

Brain-Eating Amoeba Shows Up In Florida

A microscopic, single-celled amoeba that can destroy the brain of its victims has reared its ugly head in Florida. According to CNN, a Florida Department of Health on Friday announced the confirmed case of Naegleria fowleri. The DOH official said infections from Naegleria fowleri are usually fatal. In the US, there have been 143 known cases. Only four have survived. Naegleria fowleri is typically found in warm freshwater like lakes, rivers and ponds. It enters the body through the nasal passages. Also, victims may possibly be exposed to the amoeba through a neti pot when rinsing congested sinuses.

MythBusters' Adam Savage Faces Shocking Accusation By Family Member

Mythbusters co-host Adam Savage is facing a horrific accusation. And it's not from a groupie or ex-girlfriend, either. It's from his sister. Newser reports Miranda Pacchiana filed a lawsuit Tuesday in New York state accusing her brother of 'repeatedly' sexually abusing her as a child. Savage was 9 to 12 years old at the time of the alleged assaults, and Pacchiana was 7 to 10. Now 52, Savage denies everything. While I hope that my sister gets the help she needs to find peace, this needs to end.
