Threats, hoaxes, anxiety and arrests: An uneasiness in schools after Parkland shooting

The day after a gunman fatally shot 17 people at a South Florida high school, many of Americas teenagers went to school, as always, returning to routines that usually felt safe.

But on campuses across the country, a palpable uneasiness descended on faculty, staff and students, who struggled with news out of Parkland, where police say Nikolas Cruz walked into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School with an AR-15 and opened fire.

Administrators, police and school resources officers were on high alert, too, looking out for “copycats” students motivated by the shooters actions to threaten or engage in similar behavior. More than 10 schools across the country reported threats of violence Thursday, prompting officials to arrest students and put buildings on lockdown; some districts even canceled classes.

In Spartanburg, South Carolina, a ninth-grade student at Broome High School was arrested after he allegedly posted a photo of himself on Snapchat wearing a partial mask and holding what appeared to be an assault rifle.

The photo was captioned, “Round 2 of Florida tomorrow,”

Olean apartment searches lead to four meth arrests

OLEAN — A total of four methamphetamine-related arrests stemming from two separate apartment searches were announced by the Olean Police Department Wednesday.

Three people were charged following a Monday search of 119 Irving St., where a tip led police to reportedly find meth-making materials inside. A fourth person was charged in connection with a small explosion and fire that occurred more than two months ago at 115 Orleans Ave. and is believed to have been caused by the meth-making process.

“We’ve seen an uptick in these meth labs,” said Olean Police Chief Jeff Rowley. “The most important thing is to just make people aware this is back in our community and to ask people to please call us if they’re aware of anybody doing this.”

All four suspects were charged with third-degree unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine, a class D felony. Those charged were:


• Savion D. Shaffer, 19, of 127½ E. Henley St.;

• Diana Shaffer, 40, of 207½ S. Barry St.;

• Christopher A. Winship, 33, of 119 Irving St.;

• Benjamin C. Lingenfelter, 27, of 6694 Plato Road, East Otto.

Tehran police: No more arrests for flouting dress code

Police in Iran’s capital said Thursday they will no longer arrest women for failing to observe the Islamic dress code in place since the 1979 revolution.

The announcement signaled an easing of punishments for violating the country’s conservative dress code, as called for by the young and reform-minded Iranians who helped re-elect President Hassan Rouhani, a relative moderate, earlier this year.

But hard-liners opposed to easing such rules still dominate Iran’s security forces and judiciary, so it was unclear whether the change would be fully implemented.

“Those who do not observe the Islamic dress code will no longer be taken to detention centers, nor will judicial cases be filed against them.” Tehran police chief Gen. Hossein Rahimi was quoted as saying by the reformist daily Sharq.

The semi-official Tasnim news agency said violators will instead be made to attend classes given by police. It said repeat offenders could still be subject to legal action, and the dress code remains in place outside the capital.

For nearly 40 years, women in Iran have been forced to cover their hair and wear long, loose garments. Younger and more liberal-minded women have long pushed the boundaries of

What’s going on with Artie Lange? After arrests, fans and friends are worried

Addiction and relapse are not new themes for Artie Lange or anyone who has followed his career over the last 25 years. Realities of his life, a recurring cycle of drug use, rehab and relapse are also punchlines in his act. 

Yet this year alone, Lange, 50, has been arrested three times, twice for drug possession and once for missing a court date (which was the second time he missed one this year).

Friends and fans of the Jersey comedian have taken notice. After he posted a photo of himself this month in which his nose appeared badly swollen, concerned parties called police, who showed up at Lange’s Hoboken doorstep

Artie Lange poses for his mugshot in Newark after being arrested on Dec. 12 for failing to appear in court following a May arrest.  

The comedian, a Livingston native who hails from Union Township and is perhaps best known for his eight-year stint on “The Howard Stern Show,” had already grabbed headlines in March, when he was arrested at his Hoboken parking garage for possession of heroin, cocaine and drug paraphernalia after police said they found the substances in

Spain arrests suspect wanted in at least 5 killings

Spanish authorities on Friday arrested a homicide suspect wanted for months by Italy after three people were killed a day earlier in Spain, including two Civil Guards.

Norbert Feher, a 36 year-old from Serbia, was arrested near Cantavieja, a town in northeastern rural Spain, after he allegedly shot and killed a civilian and two Civil Guard police Thursday, a Civil Guard spokesman said, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with internal police rules. The police were investigating a Dec. 5 shooting.

Italy had issued a European arrest warrant for Feher for homicides and home invasion robberies. The chief prosecutor in Bologna, Giuseppe Amato, said Friday that Italy will seek Feher’s extradition, even while acknowledging that the multiple homicides in two different countries will complicate the request.

Feher was the subject of an intense, monthslong manhunt after the April slayings of a barman and a guard in Italy’s northern region of Emilia Romagna. Davide Fabbri was killed on April 1 in the bar where he worked near Bologna, while Valerio Verri was killed days later while on patrol near Ferrara.

Feher is now on trial in absentia in Ferrara, northern Italy, for

Courthouse arrests of immigrants by ICE agents have risen 900% in New York this year: Immigration Defense Project

Sightings of ICE agents at courthouses across the state have surged from 11 to 110, compared with last year, advocates say.

In 2016, the Immigrant Defense Project documented 11 arrests or attempted arrests by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents around the state. This year the number has spiked by 900%, with most in New York City — including one arrest on Tuesday in Brooklyn Criminal Court.

“The exponential increase in ICE courthouse arrests reflects a dangerous new era in enforcement and immigrant rights violations,” Immigrant Defense Project attorney Lee Wang said. “Immigrants seeking justice in the criminal, family and civil courts should not have to fear for their freedom when doing so.”

The group’s analysis found 20% of the immigrants ICE arrested this year had no prior criminal convictions. Some were appearing in court for traffic violations before immigration agents grabbed them. At least 16% of the immigrants were in court for desk appearance tickets, meaning their offenses did not merit an arrest. Arrests have occurred in family court and in one notorious case — at Queens Human Trafficking Court.

Since President Trump took office, ICE has ramped up enforcement of immigration laws as part of a crackdown on illegal immigration.
