Susan Biggs, a 57-year-old nurse working at the Morton Plant Hospital in Clearwater, Florida, received a surprise this week at the start of her 5:30 a.m. shift, when she was called to the hospital lobby. Biggs arrived in the lobby to find six officers waiting for her with a large, brand new Bible, containing the inscription: "From Your Friends at the Clearwater Police Department."
The police had decided to give Biggs a brand new Bible after hers was stolen when she was carjacked last week. Biggs had been sitting in her car, reading her Bible ahead of her 4:30 a.m. shift last week when two teenage men approached her car with guns, and ordered her to exit the vehicle. Biggs did so, and the men sped off in her Chevrolet HHR that contained her purse and her beloved Bible. more >>

A grieving mother in South Miami-Dade made a very powerful statement yesterday as she hugged the teen who accidentally shot and killed her 13-year-old daughter two years ago. Ady Guzman-DeJesus met with prosecutors in order to try and get the young man a lighter sentence, and once that sentence was handed down, she approached the young man and hugged him, astonishing everyone including the judge in the case.
Jordyn Howe, 16, was only 14 when he took his father's gun from the bedroom closet and boarded the school bus. He wanted to show the gun off to his friends, and DeJesus' daughter Lourdes began pulling the trigger and aiming the weapon, but meaning no harm to anyone. When Howe took the gun back, he fired the weapon, but it did not discharge. Feeling it was safe, he then aimed the gun at Lourdes and fired.
Lourdes was struck in the neck and rushed to the hospital where she was pronounced dead. Howe immediately confessed and pleaded guilty to manslaughter with a deadly weapon, possession of a firearm by a minor and carrying a concealed weapon. more >>
