Mohinder Singh Randhawa, 72, who has worked for Walmart (NYSE: WMT) for 15 years, was allegedly punched in the face by a customer on June 14, 2019. Randhawa, who was standing in the greeting location at the entrance of the Walmart store in Cypress, Texas, said that he was reviewing the customer’s receipt when he noticed that the shopping cart contained gatorade that had not been paid for. Randhawa told the suspect, “you can scan and take it” adding that he didn’t imply that the suspect was stealing but that every once in awhile a cashier can miss an item. At this point, suspect Craig Valentine, 42, became agitated and in the security video, it appears that Valentine pushes Randhawa before punching him in the face. The attack, which caused Randhawa to black out, ended up breaking his upper lip and a cut of about half an inch was left on his face. Randhawa says he is now afraid to return to his job post as a greeter for Walmart. He states that he was only performing the duties that the job calls for and that now “[he is] scared to work that position.”

A South Carolina man was sentenced to death after the jury found him guilty of killing his own five children with his bare hands. After slaying his children, Timothy Jones Jr drove around with their bodies for nine days before disposing of the bodies in garbage bags on the side of an Alabama dirt road. Jones Jr. showed zero emotion as the jury delivered the death penalty verdict, which took less than two hours of deliberation. Another verdict that could have been chosen was life without the chance of parole. The children, ages 1 to 8, were murdered in their Lexington home in August of 2014. While prosecutors pushed for the death sentence, Jones’s lawyer requested that the jurors show some mercy, stating that the family has already lost 5 loved ones and seen too much death but wanted to still love Jones even if only through prison bars. Jones is only the second person to be sent to South Carolina’s death row since 2014 and the state has note executed anyone since 2011 and lacks the drugs to carry out lethal injection.

An 8 year old boy quickly found himself drifting out to see on an inflatable unicorn when rescuers arrived to save the day. The 8 year old was visiting Oak Island North Carolina from Ohio when all of a sudden he was nearly 1/2 mile out to sea and his parents realized they couldn’t get to him. Oak Island Water Rescue Chief Tony Young told WWAY TV that “the float was right there, in easy reach, and then just in the blink of an eye, it was beyond the breakers and too far for them to reach.” The parents immediately called 911 when they realized they couldn’t rescue their son and they told him to stay on the float. The Oak Island Water Rescue Team is a volunteer group and they do it because they care. “Handing that little kid back to his mom after we brought him in from way out in the ocean on that float was payment enough for all of us. “I’m sure I speak for the whole team when it comes to that.” Young told WWAY TV
