Parents Be Warned! New Teenage Trend Combines Getting High with Light Arson

When you combine a powerful chemical high with the potent adrenaline kick you get from committing arson, the teenage brain becomes overwhelmed and unfortunately excited.

Young people are often daring, by nature. 

This is part of growing up.  You need to test your limits to know what the consequences of your actions could or would be.  Much of the time, this carelessness occurs in the realms of physical and emotional pain.  Maybe we were going a little too fast down that rocky hill on our bikes, and we have the cast to prove it.  Or, perhaps, we let our hormonal urges lead us blindly into one heck of a heartbreak.

Either way, pushing the limits can be healthy in the long-term while painful in the short term, at least in some of these more innocent examples.

Trending: Watch: Bloomberg Says Elderly People Should Be Denied Care Past Certain Age When Ill

Unfortunately for the youth at large today, there are far too many limits being pushed in far more harmful arenas, including a wild new trend of huffing the fumes from burning plastic trash cans.

Police in the United Kingdom are warning about a dangerous new trend of teens lighting plastic garbage cans on fire and inhaling their fumes.

Authorities were prompted to speak out about the bizarre new craze after several “extremely dangerous” incidents were reported in the Greater Manchester area, the Mirrorreports.

Dyes used to make the trash cans – more commonly known as wheelie bins in the U.K. – emit a fume when lit on fire that can produce a high when inhaled, much like other solvents such as glue or gas. Fumes from the plastic bins, however, are “highly toxic” and reportedly more dangerous than other solvents.

The incidents in Manchester were concentrated in one specific area, Longsight Park, according to police.

While many of these kids would get the same effect from permanent markers, rubber cement, or even cannabis, the addition of the minor arson certainly feeds the thrill-seeking portion of the teenage brain, creating not only a true, chemical high, but an unfortunately addicting shot of adrenalin as well.

Of course, the damage to the lungs and minds of these young people is a major concern to health officials in the UK, prompting a litany of warnings about the practice.

New Poll From Virginia Has Bloomberg Tied For Lead With Sanders

Published

on

Sen. Bernie Sanders, who enjoyed a victory in New Hampshire’s primary and a good showing in Iowa, is tied for the top spot in a Virginia poll with former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg. Virginia is one of the larger states to be holding a primary on Super Tuesday in two weeks. Check out the details from Fox News: Former Vice President Joe Biden stands at 18 percent in the poll, just 4 percentage points behind Sanders and Bloomberg. Their slight edge over the former vice president is within the survey’s sampling error. According to the poll, former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg registers at 11 percent, with Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota at 9 percent, Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts at 5 percent, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii at just 1 percent and billionaire environmental and progressive advocate Tom Steyer at less than 1 percent.

So does Bloomberg, the billionaire Republican-turned-independent-turned-Democrat who announced his presidential bid less than three months ago. Former Vice President Joe Biden stands at…

DOJ Launches Five Probes Into Investigators Involved In Mueller Russia Probe

Published

on

Several of the investigators involved in the Mueller Russia probe, Ukraine investigation, and matters related to Hillary Clinton and her various scandals around the 2016 presidential election are all being investigated by the Department of Justice. As you can imagine, the left is probably very nervous about this, hoping that whatever conclusions are reached do not expose further activities by the “resistance” within the government working against the Trump administration. Check out the details from Fox News: Attorney General Bill Barr appointed the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri Jeff Jensen to review the case of former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Justice Department officials told Fox News that Jensen will work hand-in-hand with Brandon Van Grack — the lead prosecutor on the Flynn case — during his review. Barr last week confirmed that the Justice Department is reviewing information about Ukraine coming from President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and others. Barr has tapped U.S. Attorney from the Western District of Pennsylvania Scott Brady to handle that Ukraine information. That review comes after the president was acquitted on charges — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — stemming from the Ukraine controversy. Last year, Barr appointed U.S. Attorney from Connecticut John Durham to review the events leading up to the 2016 presidential election and through Trump’s January 20, 2017 inauguration. But, as Fox News first reported, Durham has since expanded his investigation to cover a post-election timeline spanning the spring of 2017 — when Mueller was appointed as special counsel. Another probe looking into the Clinton Foundation is also still underway, along with further looks into the granting of a FISA warrant during the Russia probe and Clinton server document release. These are all shady incidents that desperately need further examination to expose any political corruption…
