The store’s security cameras told a different story
‘Cornerstone Caroline’ apologizes after incident in Brooklyn store
BROOKLYN, NY (WABC/CNN) – The commotion outside of a Flatbush bodega Wednesday evening quickly drew a crowd.
Teresa Klein, now known as “Cornerstore Caroline” on the internet, loudly accused a 9-year-old boy of grabbing her behind.
“I was just sexually assaulted by a child,” Klein could be heard yelling.
In what has since become a viral video on social media, Klein allegedly told a 9-1-1 dispatcher she needed police immediately, prompting gut-wrenching cries from the boy and his younger sister.
Jason Littlejohn, who lives next door, captured the entire exchange that followed on video and said police never came. He now questions if Klein ever made a call and if she understands the gravity of her accusations.
“She basically said, ‘I’m calling the cops on you.’” Littlejohn explained. “She didn’t say the mom or anybody else. She said, ‘I’m calling the cops on you.’ And that poor little boy, man, wherever he is, whoever he is, hopefully there is millions of people that definitely want to help him out.”
Meanwhile, Klein returned to the bodega Friday and watched the surveillance video from inside the store.
The footage clearly showed the boy’s hands in plain sight, and it was his book-bag that grazed her.
“I was wrong,” Klein admitted. “Young man, I don’t know your name, but I’m sorry.”
Klein claims since the incident, she’s received an overwhelming amount of phone calls and threats and now she can’t walk the streets of Flatbush without fear.
She also claims the boy’s mother threatened her life and she would like to pursue charges against her.

Emmett Till’s 1955 killing continues to raise questions. Three books on his death have been published in the past two years.

JACKSON, Miss. — The family of Emmett Till would like to see authorities explore new questions surrounding his 1955 murder.
Those questions arose because Carolyn Bryant Donham has admitted she lied when she testified that Till touched her — a lie she repeated to the FBI a decade ago.
“Nothing that boy did could ever justify what happened to him,” Donham was quoted as saying.
Bryant admitted her lie to Tim Tyson, author of the new book, The Blood of Emmett Till, but she never gave a reason why.
“There needs to be a revisiting of the evidence in light of this revelation,” said Till’s cousin, Deborah Watts of Minneapolis.
In 1955, an all-white jury acquitted Donham’s then-husband, Roy Bryant, and his half-brother, J.W. Milam, of murdering Till — only for them to confess months later to Lookmagazine they had indeed beaten and killed the 14-year-old teen from Chicago.

Watts, board president of the Emmett Till Legacy Foundation, praised Donham for her courage in daring to speak now.
“I hope she’s trying to clear her conscience,” said Wheeler Parker of Chicago, who rode on the train with Till from Chicago to Mississippi in 1955. “My job as a pastor is to get people to clear their consciences and get right with God.”

He said he has long supported the idea of giving Donham immunity from prosecution in exchange for her telling everything she knows.
“The Bible says you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free,” he said. “I’m like a bird who’s been in a cage. I’m halfway out of the cage now. That would get me all the way out.”
Parker said he supports the Justice Department looking again at Till’s slaying, but “I don’t know what else they could do.”
He praised the relentless work of FBI agent Dale Killinger on the case, saying, “He did as thorough a job as you can do, unless she’s willing to do more talking.”
Donham has written about her experiences in the Till case in an unpublished memoir, More Than a Wolf Whistle: The Memoir of Carolyn Bryant Donham.
The memoir won’t be available for public inspection at the University of North Carolina archives until 2036 or until she dies, but authorities could subpoena her words.

That happened in 1988 when a grand jury subpoenaed an interview that one-time Imperial Wizard Sam Bowers gave the Mississippi Department of Archives and History with the understanding it wouldn’t be public until his death.
Months later, a jury convicted Bowers of ordering the 1966 murder of Vernon Dahmer, and he was sentenced to life in prison.
Parker would like to see authorities get their hands on the memoir — something he wants to read. “You can’t bring Emmett back, but knowing the truth can set you free,” he said.
Watts agreed, saying she and other relatives want to know what really happened to Till that fateful day of Aug. 28, 1955, where he was beaten and shot to death.
“However we can acquire truth in a legal sense, we would want that,” she said. “We would want prosecution, if warranted, but if not, we want the truth.”
More than anything, Till’s mother wanted the truth, she said. “Mamie wasn’t interested in anyone going to jail.”

So far, Mississippi and federal authorities aren’t commenting.
Alvin Sykes of Kansas City, president of the Emmett Till Justice Campaign, whose work helped lead to the FBI reopening the case in 2004, said Wednesday, “We have engaged in communications with appropriate authorities and are waiting for the appropriate response at the appropriate time.”
Immunity is one possible option, he said. “Sometimes you can get further in the pursuit of truth outside of a prosecution than you can inside.”
Before the 1955 trial of her then-husband ended, Donham took the witness stand and testified outside the presence of the Tallahatchie County, Miss., jury that Till grabbed her, asked for a date and said he had been “with white women before.”
After the FBI reopened the case, Killinger spoke to Donham, who divorced Bryant in 1975 and later remarried.
She repeated the story about Till she had previously testified to, telling Killinger that “as soon as he touched me, I started screaming.”
Notes obtained by The (Jackson, Miss.) Clarion-Ledger reveal that Carolyn Bryant gave a different story when she spoke first to defense lawyers in 1955, saying Till “insulted” her, but mentioned nothing about touching her.

In 2007, a majority-black grand jury in Greenwood, Miss., declined to indict her in connection with the killing after considering a range of charges from aiding and abetting murder to manslaughter to accessory after the fact.
Myrlie Evers-Williams, whose husband, Medgar, investigated the Till killing, said she believes the case deserves another examination.
“I think America needs to look into the end results of this travesty and see what can be done in the future to prevent a replay of it,” she said.
Parker said the lie that Till was a “sexual predator” has staying power.
Not that long ago, he visited a school where a white student told him that Till had “misbehaved and did something he shouldn’t have done.”
If Donham would tell the truth, “she could clear the air on a lot of things,” he said. “She’s made a good start.”

- She told DailyMailTV: ‘She’s just been… just basically doing anything and everything to damage any type of happiness that I could have’
- Thompson believes Beyoncé has paid people to fire her from jobs
- She filed the restraining order not as a publicity stunt but ‘to cut the cord’ with someone she once loved and ‘put on a pedestal’
- The drummer said she hopes others who have been in similar situations are inspired to do the same and stand up for themselves.
Beyoncé‘s former drummer has spoken out about the years of torment she claims she has suffered at the hands of the superstar, alleging Beyoncé put a spell on her cat and ruined her love life, she revealed in an exclusive interview with DailyMailTV.
Kimberly Thompson filed for a restraining order against Beyoncé, claiming for the past six years the singer has led a campaign of harassment against her that included the practice of witchcraft and ‘magic spells of sexual molestation’.
The 37-year-old, who was in Beyoncé’s all-girl band as a drummer for seven years, accuses her of being hell-bent on destroying every aspect of her life, including her career, relationships and finances, all out of jealousy.
Thompson spoke to DailyMailTV in a desperate attempt to have Beyoncé leave her alone, explaining: ‘She’s not been able to let me go, she’s not been able to let me progress into a mature woman and work with other people.
‘She’s just been… basically doing anything and everything to damage any type of happiness that I could have.’

Thompson said she filed the restraining order not as a publicity stunt but ‘to cut the cord’ with someone she once loved and ‘put on a pedestal’.
The drummer said she hopes others who have been in similar situations are inspired to do the same and stand up for themselves.
Thompson said to DailyMailTV: ‘I’ve just been bullied this entire time.
‘This has been going on for a very long time so it has taken god’s strength to really make me get up and stand up for myself, starting with the restraining order.
‘I don’t want anything to do with this person at all.
‘This has been a complete nightmare. I’ve been absolutely, brutally abused by her trying to control everything I’m doing,’ she claims.
Despite Thompson’s claims of harassment, a judge denied her request for a temporary restraining order.
Beyoncé, who is currently on tour with her husband Jay-Z, has not commented on the allegations.
Thompson claims Beyoncé used witchcraft that allowed her to be ‘manipulated sexually’, saying the singer did this by ‘jumping into other bodies’ to watch her be intimate with partners.
Thompson said she came to a breaking point a year ago when she found out from two psychics that Beyoncé had cast a spell on her kitten, which had been brutally attacking her.
Thompson said she only had the cat for around a month before the animal started behaving strangely and ‘doing weird magical stuff’.
Thompson told DailyMailTV: ‘I’ve just been bullied this entire time. This has been going on for a very long time so it has taken god’s strength to really make me get up and stand up for myself, starting with the restraining order’
She said: ‘I was getting abused. Every time I came home from work to rest, I was just being abused to the point where I’m still healing from a scratch on my rib cage.
‘It drew blood, it was awful. It was so manic and gnarly that I ended up calling two psychics. I got the word from the first psychic and I didn’t want to believe it.
‘So I called later to get a confirmation to make sure, because I didn’t want to believe.
‘They were like the cat has a spell on it. I said what about [Beyoncé] and they were like yes, [Beyoncé] put a spell on the cat and you need to get rid of it right away, otherwise you’ll be in really, really, huge trouble.’
Thompson claims that Beyoncé later had the cat killed, which ‘ripped out’ her heart.
In a bid to get away from the singer’s alleged control, Thompson says she attempted to move cities but claims Beyoncé still found a way ‘to manipulate and control that’.
She explained: ‘It was a very wicked tactic to keep me down, to keep me under some type of control. I’ve had enough.
‘This has been going on since 2006 and just has been getting worse, and worse and worse.
‘For a very long time, I put this person on a pedestal, I loved them… and the entire time, this person was casting spells, and manipulating and controlling my job situation, my relationships, just all kind of things.’
Thompson claims Beyoncé put witchcraft spells on her that allowed her to be ‘manipulated sexually’, saying the singer did this by ‘jumping into other bodies’ and watched her be intimate with partners.
Thompson said she regrets ever working with the superstar, adding: ‘I’m even embarrassed that I have worked with them because it has literally shattered every thing that I tried to build after doing that work in my life.
‘I always said when I was a kid, I never would want to regret anything, but this I regret.
‘I regret that we ever worked together because it has turned my life completely upside down.’
Thompson claims Beyoncé has gone as far as to use her ideas, even encouraging other celebrities to do the same.
She said: ‘I have a lot to give to the world and she’s just, I think there’s a huge amount of jealousy there that she hasn’t discussed with me.
‘It’s just been a nightmare to try and move on and do other things for other people without it getting totally destroyed.
‘Other people I’ve worked with have been paid to fire me. I found this out and then it just kept happening. It was a pattern.’

Disgraced former TV dad Bill Cosby has been under house arrest after a jury found him guilty of three counts of indecent aggravated assault back in April, and now it looks like the 81-year-old’s health is starting to fail. Radar Online is reporting that doctors have given Cosby a “chilling death diagnosis,” and he is preparing for the end by rewriting his will and planning a grand funeral. Insiders say that Cosby is cutting “traitors” out of his will, selling off family heirlooms, and inviting various celebrities to a $250,000 farewell party. “Doctors are telling the family now is a good time for him to ‘get his affairs in order,’ which is code for ‘prepare to die!’ claims a source. As soon as the four zeros went up – my memory went to a black and white photo of Steve Van Buren running with the football in the snow. Congratulations to the Philadelphia Eagles for winning SuperBowl LII #EaglesSuperBowlChamps #PhiladelphiaEagles #RIPSteveVanBurenpic. twitter.com/OCIzIk5kcW— Bill Cosby (@BillCosby) February 5, 2018 The insider adds that Cosby’s health has deteriorated since over 60 women accused him of drugging and sexually attacking them over multiple decades. They say that he is suffering from hemiplegic migraines, which is a rare condition that causes confusion, speech difficulties, vision problems, and temporary paralysis. Cosby’s wife of 64 years, Camille, went to the couple’s Massachusetts farm after her husband’s conviction, and the source says that since she “ditched him,” Cosby is getting revenge by selling family heirlooms. Ahead of his September 25th sentencing, the comic has fired his legal team, including Tom Mesereau, the attorney who got Michael Jackson cleared of child molestation charges. Insiders say that Cosby believes they let him down and he is angry. He has recently hired a new attorney – Joseph P. Green Jr. A jury found Cosby guilty of drugging and molesting Temple University employee Andrea Constand back in 2004, and his conviction and impending sentencing have reportedly sent him into a tailspin. Famous women’s rights attorney Gloria Allred says that Cosby’s change in lawyers looks to be an “act of desperation. ”The Cosby Show star is also planning to spend $250,000 for his July 12th birthday party, which will also be a final farewell. According to sources, he has invited Christopher Darden, the prosecutor in the O.J. Simpson murder case, Keshia Knight Pulliam, Phylicia Rashad, Whoopi Goldberg, Waka Flocka, and CeeLo Green. However, none of them have RSVP’d.

His former client is facing up to ten years in jail on each count at his September sentencing, but he is currently out on bail. The lawyer also says that he believes Cosby’s trial was biased, and he has never seen anything like it in his career. He explained that the #MeToo movement started as something desirable – to stop sexual harassment, discrimination, and abuse against women. But while he commends those principles, Mesereau says that the movement has “gotten so powerful that judges are running scared. ”Mesereau hopes that the court will reverse Bill Cosby’s convictions on appeal, and he also hopes that the comic “doesn’t spend one minute in jail because he doesn’t deserve to.”

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (FOX 11/ CNS) – Los Angeles County prosecutors have begun reviewing whether actor Sylvester Stallone should face charges in connection with a sexual assault reported last year to Santa Monica police, a district attorney’s spokesman said in remarks reported Thursday.
A special entertainment task force in the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office was handed the case against the Hollywood legend by Santa Monica police, district attorney spokesman Greg Risling told the Los Angeles Times. He would not comment further on the nature of the allegation.
The alleged victim reported the assault last November to Santa Monica police, and the incident dates back to the 1990s, according to police. A criminal allegation dating to the 1990s cannot be charged under California law because it is past the statute of limitations that existed at the time.
Prosecutors reviewing cases in the wake of #MeToo movement have repeatedly run into issues of crimes being too old to prosecute under California law. Despite hundreds of women accusing director James Toback of sexual misconduct, Los Angeles prosecutors declined to file charges after five investigations were forwarded by police, mostly on grounds that they were beyond the legal statute of limitations.
In 2016, Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation that amends the penal code so that some sex crimes, including rape, forcible sodomy and molestation of a child, can be be prosecuted, regardless of how long ago the crime occurred. The legislation was prompted by allegations against comedian Bill
Martin Singer, Stallone’s attorney, said the star of such movies as “Rocky” and “Rambo” had been notified of the allegation and categorically disputed the claims.
“It is a false claim. It is a complete fabrication,” Singer said, adding that Stallone had a consensual dating relationship years ago with the woman. The attorney said, “the woman here filed a police report to get a story published.”

Jamie Foxx is being accused of slapping a woman with his penis nearly 16 years ago, and although she’s now gone to police … Foxx says it’s an “absurd” lie, and he’s going after her, legally … TMZ has learned.
The alleged assault happened in Las Vegas back in 2002. According to law enforcement, the accuser told cops last week she and a friend were attending a party at Jamie’s place when he tried to get her to perform oral sex. She claims when she refused, Jamie struck her in the face with his penis.
The accuser tells us … after the alleged assault, one of Jamie’s friends told her she had to get out of the house. She claims she went to a hospital the next day when she got back home to L.A. to get treatment for a severe panic attack.
Law enforcement sources tell us Vegas PD lists the case as an open investigation. However, the statute of limitations has long since run — it’s 3 years in Nevada.
Jamie’s attorney, Allison Hart of Lavely & Singer, tells TMZ … “Jamie emphatically denies that this incident ever occurred, and he will be filing a report with the Las Vegas Police Department against the woman for filing a false police report against him. The first time [Jamie] became aware of this woman’s absurd claims about an incident that supposedly occurred 16 years ago was when TMZ contacted his representatives [Tuesday] about this story.”
Hart adds, “The alleged incident was not reported to law enforcement in 2002, or at any other time in the last 16 years until last Friday because the incident never happened.”
The accuser says the #MeToo movement inspired her to finally file the police report. She also claims she wanted the alleged incident recorded in case other accusers come forward.
