Missing Utah woman vanished without a trace

Friends and family in Utah are desperately search for a beautiful missing woman, Kayelyn Louder.

Routine traffic stop turns violent

Routine traffic stop turns violent

A terrified family faced off with cops during a routine traffic stop gone awry--and it was all caught on cell phone video.  Indiana couple Jamal Jones and Lisa Mahone say they were rushing with Mahone's 7- and 14-year-old children to see her dying mother when police stopped them for an alleged seatbelt violation.  Police laid spike strips down, and though Mahone was the one who allegedly wasn't wearing a seatbelt, police asked for Jones' identification.  As he reached for some documents, cops drew their guns.

Mahone called 911 and told the operator that they feared for their lives as cops repeatedly asked Jones to get out of the car.  When he refused, police shattered the passenger's side window and tasered Jones as the 2 young children watched in horror from the backseat.  Now, Mahone and Jones are suing the Hammond, Indiana Police Department.  The police department released the following statement:

Can Jodi's attorneys get death off the table?

Attorneys for Jodi Arias await the judge's ruling on their motion to dismiss the death penalty, as they and the prosecution continue to whittle down the list of prospective jurors. The judge is expected to hear the defense's arguments October 14. The defense has filed a similar before, but this one is more extensive.

Jack needs a home!

Jack needs a home!

It's adopt a shelter dog month, and one dog named Jack needs to find a home as soon as possible.  Jack is about 8-years-old, and was recently turned into a shelter as a stray in the Los Angeles-area.  He's well-trained, friendly, loves people, little dogs, and snuggling.  If he isn't adopted in the next week, he'll probably be headed to a kill shelter.

Jane speaks to animal advocate Jane Garrison, with a special appearance from Jack himself, about adopt a shelter dog month.

Adopt Jack!

Adopt Jack!

Meet Jack he is about 8 years old. He is a low energy, friendly, 63 pounds, neutered and current on vaccines.

He was turned into the shelter as a stray and picked up the name Jack within a couple of days of me fostering him. He is 100% potty trained and knows how to use a doggy door. Super friendly with all people, his tail never stops wagging.

Great news for animals but not near enough!

Great news for animals but not near enough!

The big breaking news for animals is that the FBI has just announced it is upping animal cruelty to a Group A felony, which will give law enforcement the muscle it needs to treat animal cruelty like the serious crime it is.

Law enforcement now must file reports on garden-variety animal neglect, sadistic animal torture, group abuse like dogfighting and even animal sexual abuse, which unbelievably is a real problem.
