Brooklyn: Teresa Klein, aka ‘Cornerstore Caroline’, Accused a 9-Year Old Boy of Sexual Assault for Bumping into Her with His Bag


Brooklyn, New York: Teresa Sue Klein, 53, a self-described unemployed “feminist and humanist”, was nicknamed “Cornerstore Caroline” after she called the police on a 9-year old black boy for touching her buttocks as she was at the checkout stand in a market.  Surveillance video showed that as the boy walked past her, he was looking in the opposite direction and his backpack inadvertently brushed her backside.  She was not sexually assaulted.  Several neighbors reported that Klein has made up false stories and has a habit of calling the police.  The #MeToo movement has gone too far.

A New York woman dubbed “Cornerstore Caroline” has sparked outrage after a video showing her calling the police on a 9-year-old boy she falsely accused of sexually assaulting her in a Brooklyn store went viral. The has been identified as 53-year-old Teresa Sue Klein.

Surveillance video from the store shows that the boy did not grab or sexually assault Klein. He accidentally bumped into her as he was walking out of the store with his mother and sibling. Klein later watched the video herself and admitted she was wrong and the boy accidentally brushed against her, according to WNBC-TV.
It was posted on Facebook on October 10 by Jason Littlejohn hours after the incident. Klein could not be reached for comment by Heavy. The woman and child Klein called the police on have not been identified and has not spoken out about the incident. A GoFundMe has been started by activist Michael Skolnik to help with his education.

“As I walked up I noticed the argument, apparently the kid brushed up against her and she said he touched her and decided to call police on a nine year old child. As you can see the kid is crying and the mom is upset,” Littlejohn wrote on Facebook. The video has been viewed millions of times since it was posted Wednesday night. The incident happened at Sahara Deli Market on Albemarle Road in Flatbush, according to WPIX-TV.

“The little kid thought he was going to go to jail for something he didn’t do,” Littlejohn told The New York Times. “I thought it was someone calling police for unnecessary reasons, especially on a child. You think something like this only happens in the South, but it’s all over the world. He’s going to be traumatized for the rest of his life. This is something that will stick with him.”

Israeli Court Imposes $12K Fine on New Zealand BDS Activists Who Convinced Singer Lorde to Cancel Her Show

An Israeli court awarded damages of $12,3600 USD to plaintiffs in a lawsuit against a pair of New Zealand activists who wrote an open letter asking the singer, Lorde, to cancel her concert in Israel as evidence of support for the BDS (boycott, divestiture and sanctions) campaign against the Jewish state for its occupation of Palestine. Israeli lawyers said that the ruling makes it clear that anyone who calls for a boycott against the State of Israel could find themselves liable for damages and will be forced to pay compensation to those hurt by the boycott call. The law firm will try to enforce this ruling in New Zealand and go after the activists’ bank accounts until full damages have been paid. Legal experts doubt that enforcement will be possible, because Israel is not one of the countries listed in New Zealand’s Reciprocal Enforcement of Judgments Act. -GEG

Two New Zealand activists who urged Lorde to to cancel her concerts in Israel says they were surprised when they were told an Israeli legal group was suing them.

A pair of Kiwi activists who wrote an open letter asking Lorde to cancel a concert in Israel have been fined almost NZD$19000 by an Israeli court.

However it is not clear whether that fine will be at all enforceable in New Zealand, as the prosecuting lawyer intends to attempt.

Justine Sachs and Nadia Abu-Shanab wrote the open letter to New Zealand singer Lorde on The Spinoff after she planned a concert in Israel, asking her to reconsider the concert given Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestinian territories.

Lorde (Ella Yelich-O’Connor) cancelled her shows in Israel after acknowledging an open letter from two Kiwi women urging her to Boycott the Jewish country.

​Lorde, real name Ella Yelich O’Connor, responded to the letter on Twitter and eventually cancelled her concert.

Israeli law group Shurat HaDin filed a suit on the behalf of three minors who had bought tickets to the concert in January, demanding NIS15,000 (NZ$6330) for each of the minors. The minors had already been refunded their tickets.

The case relied on a controversial 2011 which allows for civil suits against any person or group who calls for a boycott of the Israeli state.

Sachs is a masters student at the University of Auckland and the co-founder of the group “Dayenu: New Zealand Jews Against Occupation” while Abu-Shanab is a teacher and activist based in Wellington.

The Associated Press reported on Friday the charge had been successful, and the two activists had been fined NIS45,000 plus NIS11,000 in legal fees, for a total of around $23,500.

Sachs told Stuff on Friday that the ruling “further demonstrates how Israel has become something that doesn’t even closely resemble a liberal democracy and only validates the necessity of the [Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions] movement to exert external pressure on an apartheid state whose democratic institutions have collapsed.”

IN a now deleted tweet, Lorde pulled back on her decision to play Israel.

It was not clear whether any such fine would be enforceable in New Zealand.

Shurat HaDin lawyer Nitsana Darshan-Leitner told the Jerusalem Post that New Zealand and Israel and have a legal agreement that would allow the court to pursue the damages.

“This decision makes it clear that anyone who calls for a boycott against the State of Israel could find themselves liable for damages and need to pay compensation to those hurt by the boycott call, if they’re in Israel or outside it,” Darshan-Leitner told the paper.

“We will enforce this ruling in New Zealand, and go after their bank accounts until it has been fully realised.”

UK: Passengers on a Plane Prevented Somali Man Who Is a Convicted Gang Rapist from Being Deported

A flight from Heathrow Airport in London to Turkey was stopped by passengers to prevent the deportation of Yaqub Ahmed, 29, a Somali native who had served four years in a UK prison after being convicted of gang raping a 16-year old girl in 2007.  The unwitting passengers who were not aware of Ahmed’s rape crime, chanted “take him off the plane” and one traveler complained, “They’re separating him from his family”.  Ahmed is now believed to be in an immigration detention center while officials try to place him on another flight out of the UK. 

  • The deportation of Yaqub Ahmed was dramatically halted by plane passengers
  • The man, 29, was being returned to Somalia after being involved in a gang-rape
  • Passengers complained he was being separated from his family in the UK  

A Somalian whose deportation from Britain was dramatically halted after airline passengers staged a mutiny demanding his release can be exposed today as a convicted gang rapist who was being kicked out of the country because of his sickening crime.

Officials escorting Yaqub Ahmed on a flight from Heathrow to Turkey were forced to abandon his deportation when around a dozen holidaymakers who felt sorry for him angrily intervened shortly before take-off.

At one stage during the astonishing episode, filmed on mobile phones, one traveller complained: ‘They’re separating him from his family’, while others chanted ‘take him off the plane’.

When harassed security guards caved in and walked 29-year-old Ahmed off the Turkish Airlines flight, he was seen thanking those on board for their support as they cheered and applauded.

One person was heard declaring: ‘You’re free, man!’

Yaqub Ahmed, 29, is one of a gang of rapists who brutally assaulted a young girl. The 16-year-old victim was gang-raped in a flat in New Orleans Walk in Crouch End on August 10

Passengers helped Ahmed get kicked off the plane as he resisted being deported by the Home Office after serving a prison sentence for gang rape

But the passengers who thought they were doing a good deed were unaware that the man they were defending had been sentenced to nine years in jail for his part in a vicious gang rape of a teenage girl – and that another member of his gang later fought for Islamic State in Syria.

Today The Mail on Sunday can reveal how Ahmed and three other youths preyed on a 16-year-old stranger after she became separated from her friends during a night out in London’s Leicester Square, in August 2007.

In a planned attack, they lured her back to a flat in Crouch End, North London, by pretending her friends were waiting for her there – then gang-raped her.

The gang, aged between 18 and 20, were caught when neighbours heard the girl’s cries for help and rang police.

All four men denied rape, despite DNA evidence. They were found guilty at Wood Green Crown Court and each jailed for nine years. Police detective Emma Bird said at the time: ‘The sentences given out by the judge reflect the seriousness of this offence.’

Georgia: Gubernatorial Candidate Stacey Abrams Encourages Voter Fraud by Saying Illegal Aliens Will Be Part of the ‘Blue Wave’ During Elections


Georgia: Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Stacey Abrams, let it slip last week that the “blue wave” of Democratic voters, predicted by some to sweep the midterms, includes “undocumented” immigrants, thus implying that illegal aliens are welcome to cast their vote in the upcoming elections.  She said, “The thing of it is, the blue wave is African American. It’s white, it’s Latino, it’s Asian-Pacific Islander.  It is disabled, it is differently-abled, it is LGBTQ, it is law enforcement, it is veterans.  It is made up of those who’ve been told that they are not worthy of being here. It is comprised of those who are documented and undocumented.”
