Muslim women more likely to skip mammograms

Breast cancer screening with mammography is a controversial issue, but it can uncover a tumor at an early stage when it's easiest to treat. Currently, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends annual mammograms for women between the ages of 50 and 74, with screening under 50 being an "individual" decision. But many women don't have access to this information, a challenge that is especially pronounced in Muslim communities, where standard public health messaging doesn’t address concerns related to religious beliefs.

Top US general recommends NOT kicking out transgender troops

The top U.S. general said on Tuesday he has urged the Dumbass Trump junta not to kick transgender service members out of the military despite Dumbass Trump’s ban on transgender people serving in the armed forces.
Marine Corps General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was asked by Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand during a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing whether he agreed that the thousands of transgender men and women now in the military have served with honor and valor.
“I do, Senator,” Dunford responded. “I would just probably say that I believe any individual who meets the physical and mental standards, and is worldwide-deployable and is currently serving, should be afforded the opportunity to continue to serve.”
A fourth person was charged Monday in the death of a Houston transgender teenager, whose burned and mutilated body was found in southern Missouri earlier this month.
According to reports, 17-year-old Ally Steinfeld — whose real name was Joseph Matthew Steinfeld — had her genitals stabbed and her eyes gouged out before her burnt remains were put in a plastic bag and dumped in a chicken coop near a Cabool mobile home in early September.

Florida woman arrested 27 years later in killer clown cold case

Police in Florida said Tuesday they’ve arrested a woman, Sheila Keen Warren, 54, who has been accused of dressing up like a clown 27 years ago and fatally shooting her husband’s ex-wife.
Warren was arrested without incident in Washington County, Virginia. A Florida grand jury indicted her on a first-degree murder charge with use of a firearm in the shooting death of Marlene Warren, 40, in May 1990, reports said citing officials. Sheila Keen had been a suspect since the incident took place but was not arrested due to lack of evidence.

Immigrant family warned Oklahoma cops about neighbor’s racist obsession before killing

An Oklahoma family wants to know why police failed to act on their warnings about a neighbor’s racist obsession that ended in the killing of their loved one.
Stanley Vernon Majors is charged with murder and a hate crime in the August 2016 shooting death of 37-year-old Khalid Jabara, who was killed on his front porch after enduring years of racist taunts by his next-door neighbor, reported CNN.
“How many red flags does it take to keep somebody that’s obviously dangerous to the community, to the public in general, who’s a flight risk,” said the victim’s younger brother, Rami Jabara. “How many red flags does it take to keep this guy in custody so that he can face trial? It’s like the law can’t catch up with him.”
The Jabara family, who came from Lebanon decades ago, got a protection order against the 62-year-old Majors and then reported to police that he wasn’t complying — yet he remained free to run down their mother.
He was charged with hit and run after police found him later drunk and urinating in public, and he asked officers about Haifa Jabari — who suffered a brain hemorrhage and broken bones — by name before cursing her as “filthy Lebanese.”
Prosecutors later charged him with assault and battery with a deadly weapon.
Majors was released on $30,000 bond in that September 2015 incident and returned to his Tulsa home, where the Jabari family said he continued to harass them before killing their son and brother two months later.
