The U.S. Army says it has punished four Nashville-area recruiters.
It all stems from our exclusive NewsChannel 5 investigation of the recruiters and their Dishonorable Deceptions.
The Army’s announcement came in a news release, headlined ”Army recruiters punished.”
Those recruiters were caught on hidden camera, urging a prospective recruit to lie about his mental health history.
“There’s ways around the system,” one recruiter told our undercover producer. “You’ve probably seen TV reports and all that. More or less, me and you are the only ones that know it.” (more…)

The Minister of Corrections is requesting a review of GPS tracking of offenders.
Officials will be asked to look into whether current legislation can be extended to include the tracking of high-risk domestic violence offenders.
It follows the revelation that Christchurch woman Alexsis Tovizi was murdered by Nikki Roper, despite holding a protection order against him.
Minister Anne Tolley says GPS tracking has already proved to be a valuable tool with a number of offenders identified and dealt with for straying near banned areas. (more…)

Suffolk County Council is currently trialing an initiative with a group of around 20 dementia patients which sees them wear a device fitted with a GPS system so that if they get lost they can be easily traced.
A number of councils across the country also provide this technology, which has received a mixed reaction.
Annie Topping, chief executive of Healthwatch Suffolk, an independent watchdog for health and social care, said: “With two thirds of dementia patients living in their own homes, any development that gives more support and enhances the independence of those with dementia must be good news for people in Suffolk.

FORESTBROOK, SC (WMBF) – A teacher and teacher’s aide are facing serious charges after a student in their class recorded possible abuse.
That student was sent to school with a digital recording device attached to them somehow, the Horry County Police incident report states, and captured everything that happened inside the special education classroom at Forestbrook Elementary.
From the child’s perspective, the audio recording seems to show the teacher’s aide, 46-year-old Linda Joyce Warriner of Myrtle Beach, screaming at the child “that he was bad and had to go to the office,” the report states.
But in this case the office was a 5′ by 5′ bathroom. While in that room, the child was asked to repeat what he had done to deserve that punishment, and how he wouldn’t do it again.
The digital recording also captured the child screaming Warriner’s name while asking that someone “stop pinching him…and not to hit him.”
Although the recording contained only audio and does not implicitly capture this alleged abuse, Warriner and the teacher, 38-year-old Anna Rogers, can be heard saying how it’s “a good thing that there are not cameras in the room yet.”
The recording was given to the Horry County School District by the child’s mother. District employees then contacted Horry County Police to determine if criminal charges were warranted.
Anna Rogers and Linda Warriner were booked into the J. Reuben Long Detention Center on Wednesday and charged with the unlawful neglect of a child. Both were released Wednesday afternoon with $10,000 bond each.

A thief who allegedly grabbed the purse of a 50-year-old woman in Australia had his plans for running away quickly foiled for a moment as he sprinted right through a glass door, knocking himself out. Not knowing the man was a purse snatcher, bystanders even helped him up and he escaped.
The store’s surveillance camera caught it all.
The incident happened in Perth, accordin to 3News out of New Zealand. Shop owner Greg Rice too didn’t know initially that the person slamming into the glass door was a thief.
“I didn’t know what went on, really. I just thought somebody ran into the door, but as it turned out, when I saw how keen he was to get away, we realised something was up,” he told 3News.
The video shows the alleged thief breaking through the glass door, followed by concerned bystanders trying to help him before an accomplice tried to drag him to a waiting car.
Also caught on the CCTV camera was Jake Adams, owner of a nearby tattoo shop, going after the suspect.
“He said ‘I’ve got a gun, I’ve got a gun, I’m gonna shoot you, I’m gonna shoot you’,” Adams recalled. “So, I picked the guy up [the thief] in front of me, like they do in the movies and held him in front of me.” Adams eventually let the alleged robber go.
Ultimately, the thief and his accomplice escaped in a green Lexus, which 3News reported police saying was also stolen. The men are still at large.

Members of a gang who abused shoppers, threatened staff and chased children before ripping phones and iPads off walls in 42 stores across London have been jailed for a total of 11 years.
CCTV footage from one attack on their £500,000 crime spree shows a mother sprinting to protect her terrified son as the eight men swamped and then burgled a Carphone Warehouse.
On each occasion the criminals caused ‘total mayhem’ when they stormed high street shops to wrench high-value items from the walls in a series of violent ‘steaming’ raids.
In scenes reminiscent of the recent London Riots, phones and tablet computers worth a total of £143,000 were ripped out by the thieves, while the attacks caused more than £50,000 worth of damage.
The criminals, some of whom were just 14, used the ‘steaming’ technique, where they rob shops or mug individuals by swamping them and threatening them with violence.
The clean-up operation after the raids, which forced some stores to close temporarily, resulted in Carphone Warehouse losing a total of more than £500,000, the court heard.
Passing sentence, Judge Peter Testar said: ‘This conspiracy to burgle consists of a series of offences in which a number of young men rushed into branches of Carphone Warehouse and simply grabbed whatever they were able to and ran away.
‘In some cases, efforts were made to disguise appearances, but in many cases the attitude of those who committed these offences was brazen.
‘Those who have joined the conspiracy have applied themselves to a criminal operation of which the overall effect was very great.
‘The targeting of particular premises and the mob handed means of offending indicates greater harm.
‘The success (of the conspiracy) depended on force of numbers and shock.
‘Many staff and customers were very frightened. (more…)
