A mother slashed her five-day-old daughter to death because she ‘didn’t want her baby,’ police say. Hiralbahen Bhavsar, 29, was arrested in Little Ferry, New Jersey on Thursday after authorities say she sliced the infant’s throat and arm with a knife. She called police to her home claiming she had chest pains and told responding officers that her husband, Jaymin, was trying to kill her in their Liberty Street apartment. Jaymin was handcuffed, but other family members who were in the home began screaming: ‘No, no, not him,’ according to NorthJersey.com. Police wrote: ‘At this time, Hiralbahen exited a rear bedroom and began stating, “No, no not him. I did it. I killed my baby.”

Officers then found the lifeless baby in the bedroom with cuts to her arm and neck. Police questioned Hiralbahen, who told them she ‘didn’t want her baby’ and she killed the child.

Jaymin told investigators that his family was eating dinner when the baby began crying, so his wife took the baby into the rear bedroom. He said Hiralbahen then left the room without the infant, grabbed an item from the kitchen, then returned to the bedroom and locked the door. Just hours before the stabbing, She posted a photo of herself with the child and her husband, Fox reported, but it appears to have been taken down.

Neighbor Aradhana Thakur said that she did not know whether the mother was struggling with postpartum depression, and claimed Hiralbahen seemed ‘normal.’ She said: ‘I saw her yesterday and she was looking OK, normal, but I think she must be going through some sort of depression because no mother could do this to her child.’ Hiralbahen Bhavsar has been charged with first-degree murder and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, according to the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office.

Police: Woman demanded oral sex at gunpoint, fired shots at man as he fled apartment

Mugshot of Anneisha Speed, suspect

 

BATON ROUGE – A man leapt from a second-floor apartment Monday after a gun-slinging woman tried to shoot him because he refused to give her oral sex.

Police say Anneisha Speed, 19, was at the victim’s Labelle Avenue apartment Monday when things went south. According to arrest records, the man invited Speed to his apartment after the two spent much of the day together.

Once inside the apartment, the victim says Speed asked him to perform oral sex for her. He declined, and Speed responded by whipping out a .40 handgun, the affidavit says. Speed allegedly aimed the gun at the man and threatened to shoot him if he didn’t give in to her demands.

When the man grabbed Speed’s wrist, she apparently fired a round into the wall. He then ran out onto the second-floor balcony and jumped to the ground as another shot was fired in his direction, police records say.

Officers found Speed outside the apartment a short while later. She allegedly resisted handcuffs and had to be taken to the ground before she was taken into custody.

After searching the apartment, officers found two live .40 rounds and a spent shell casing. They also discovered Speed had apparently stolen a shotgun and Playstation 4 game console from the victim’s home.

She was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison Tuesday on charges of attempted second-degree murder, illegal discharge of a firearm, theft of a firearm, resisting an officer and tampering with evidence.

Transgender woman gets new vagina made from fish skin

fish-skin-trans2

A trans woman had a vagina constructed using the skin of a tilapia fish after her genitals began to shrink and close up following botched surgery.

According to surgeons, Maju, 35, has been the chance of a “proper sex life” and a boost of confidence thanks to the sea creature’s skin.

The highly complex procedure, called neovaginoplasty, used a tubular-shaped acrylic mold wrapped with the skin of the freshwater fish in the form of a biological prosthesis to rebuild and extend the vaginal canal in a three-hour operation on April 23.

The process involved inserting two separate molds to create the new vagina. The first device, mounted with the marine membrane, was incorporated inside the vagina over a period of six days.

In contact with the patient’s body, the sterilized and odor free fish skin displays stimulatory cell growth properties. It is rich in type 1 collagen a substance that promotes healing and has a firmness and elasticity which is as strong and resilient as human skin.

The tilapia membrane attached to and recoated the walls of the vaginal canal acting like stem cells. These were absorbed into the body, transforming into cellular tissue similar to that of an actual vagina.

The second device made from silicone and described as a very ‘big tampon’ is designed to remain inside the vagina for up to six months to prevent the walls from closing.

Professor Leonardo Bezerra said to FocusOn News: “We were able create a vagina of physiological length, both in thickness and by enlarging it and the patient has recovered extremely well. She is walking around with ease, has no pain and is urinating normally. In a couple months we believe she will be able to have sexual intercourse.”

The device can be removed after this period as and when desired.

The process is being hailed as yet another breakthrough in gynecological surgery which is tackling sensitive predicaments using the aquatic animal skin, normally thrown away as waste, as a substitute for human regenerative tissue.

Speaking to FocusOn News the transsexual patient revealed she decided to transition 20 years ago, with the support of her family, after realizing in her early teens that she was a woman living in a man’s body.

Maju said: “I was the fourth person in Brazil in 1999 to have, what was then, experimental surgery. But ten years ago I developed vaginal stenosis. The opening of my vagina started to get narrower and shorter and the canal collapsed.”

Three-hour operation

She suffered constant discomfort which prevented sex with her partner of 12 years, from whom she is now divorced.

Since developing the technique three years ago, Bezzera has successfully treated 10 women and corrected the condition that causes the vagina and uterus to be underdeveloped or absent.

According to Bezerra, vaginal tract closure is common in trans women who have undergone a sex change.

He explained: “This is because, in the traditional procedure, most of the inside parts of the penis are removed and the penile skin is folded into the space between the urethra and the rectum. The outside skin of the penis then becomes the inside of the vagina.”

“But because the patient has had hormonal treatment to develop female characteristics, there is penile and testicle atrophy resulting in shrinkage in the size of the penis caused from the loss of tissue. This means the vagina can also be small.”

To complicate matters, before surgery could begin, the medical team discovered that apparent levels of incompetence during the original surgery had left more than one narrow vaginal canal. There were remnants of cavernous bodies, erectile tissue structures, still in the vaginal space.

“The presence of these leftovers of the penis aggravated the closure of the vaginal tract, worsening the symptoms,” said Bezerra.

To reverse this problem, the most common method is to do a skin graft taken from other parts of the body, usually from the intestines, to increase the width and length of the canal. This type of surgery is invasive, long and leaves scars.

Bezerra said: “The great benefit of our technique is that it’s minimally invasive and there’s no need to do abdominal incisions.”

Repeated leaks and revelations are chipping away at Trump’s attempts to keep his tax records secret from the American public

5cd2b468021b4c04c2399936-1920-960Donald Trump, then a real estate tycoon and media personality, poses in the Trump Tower atrium in 1989.

 

Trump in 2016 became the first presidential nominee of a major party in decades to refuse to release his tax returns.

But a series of leaks and investigations mean that, piecemeal, he is losing the battle to conceal his tax records from the American public.

The latest came last last night, when the New York Times published details of the president’s 1985 to 1994 tax records.

The documents expose large losses by Trumps’ network of casinos and hotel businesses, totalling $1.17 billion over the course of the nine years — more than any other US citizen in the same period, according to the Times.

And they contribute to a growing — but still incomplete — picture of Trump’s tax stratagems and business dealings before his election.

Before his victory— back in October 2016 – the Times acquired documents that undermined Trump’s campaign trail boasts about his business acumen, showing that Trump claimed $916 million losses in his 1995 personal filing.

The documents suggested that he may have paid no federal income tax for two decades.

5cd2b495021b4c047c7d6df7-1920-1440Trump welcomes Slovakia’s Prime Minister at the White House in May 2019.

 

Trump bounced back from the revelations, in a debate with his presidential rival Hillary Clinton claiming that paying no taxes made him “smart.” He went on to win the election.

In May 2017 more details from Trump’s private tax documents were made public by MSNBC host Rachel Maddow, who acquired two pages from Trump’s 2005 tax returns that had been leaked to investigative reporter David Cay Johnston.

The documents showed that Trump had in fact not avoided paying taxes for two decades, and paid $38 million on $153 million earnings that year, though at a comparatively low 25% tax rate.

Maddow defended herself afterwards from accusations the story was something of a letdown.

There were more more damaging revelations from the Times last year, which reported that Trump used a series of dubious tax schemes to shield his $400 million inheritance from his father from the IRS.

The information in the public eye so far exposes a pattern of failure and enormous financial losses during a nine-year period when Trump was building his brand as a superlative dealmaker — puncturing a narrative of success that was central to his presidential bid in 2016.

The president, though, has continued to refuse to release the full documents.

Commentators have speculated that the information could show Trump’s boasts of his wealth to be an exaggeration, lay bare how little tax he paid after his 1995 losses — or even expose financial ties with Russia.

When Democrats seized control of the House after November’s mid-terms, they pledged to get the full records.

The House Ways and Means Committee in March issued a formal demand to the Treasury for six years of the president’s tax records.

On Monday Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin refused to meet a second deadline for handing over the records, claiming the Democrat-led panel was acting for purely political reasons. The situation could now escalate to a Supreme Court showdown.

A victory there for Trump would vindicate his strategy of concealing the documents, and offer a big win after a series of small links chipped away at his preference for secrecy. But regardless of the outcome, we may see more Trump records reach the light of day.

State lawmakers have also begun to place the president under pressure, with Democrats in 20 states introducing bills that would require presidential candidates to release their tax returns in order to appear on the state ballots in 2020.

The president continued to insist he could not release the returns because they remained under Internal Revenue Service audit — but promised to do so at an unspecified point in the future.

The IRS has said those under audit are free to release their tax returns at any time, but the battle is likely to continue and Trump’s reluctance to release the information in full to be a source of speculation.

Video shows healthcare staff punching, beating man with disabilities with belt

Investigation found at least five employees at the mental health facility beat a man, and allowed other patients to join in.

b87c98f2-e164-4b3e-9d69-7146570bd1fc_750x422

GORDON, Ga. — The family of a mentally disabled Georgia man has released video showing their loved one being repeatedly beaten by staff hired to care for him.

Brian Jarrad, the family’s attorney, said the family wanted to release video of the 2013 incident now to warn the public that neglect is happening at facilities all across Georgia.

“These are some of our most weakest, our most vulnerable citizens. So, it’s important to know and watch and to see when they’re not being cared for appropriately,” said Jarrard.

The Macon attorney represents 55-year-old Joey Cason. When Cason’s family could no longer care for him, they admitted him into Total Care, a facility in Gordan, Georgia, licensed to care for the developmentally disabled.

“Physically, he is not disabled. He is able to function physically, but he is severely mentally disabled,” explained Jarrard.

Surveillance video recorded on November 7, 2013 shows staff repeatedly hitting Cason with belts, punching him on the ground and allowing other residents to hit him.

At one point, staff appears to be taunting Cason with food and laughing at him.

“I think anybody would find the video despicable,” said Jarrard. “It was heartbreaking. It made me angry to think of individuals who were being paid to care for him were engaged in just despicable abuse.”

Gordon Police charged a caretaker named Shakia Smith with battery and abuse/neglect of an elder person.

Jarrard said the case against the former facility owner is still pending. Carson is now at a different facility in south Georgia and is doing well, Jarrad said.

The Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities revoked the facility’s license after an investigation.

Total Care’s former owner, Pamela Reaves, declined to comment about the pending litigation. Her attorney, Wayne Kendall, did not return follow-up questions sent by email.

The video’s release comes on the heels of Georgia seeking to end nearly 10 years of federal supervision of its mental health care services. The Reveal Investigation also uncovered a rise in abuse, neglect and exploitation at state licensed mental health care providers.

Tune into 11Alive Thursday night at 11 p.m. for The Reveal’s investigation into Georgia mental health providers and other abuse claims against facilities across the state.
