8 deputies accused of sharing photos of Kobe Bryant’s helicopter crash are facing administrative action

The sheriff told CNN he was “shocked” to learn about the incident and said he felt a “a sense of betrayal.”

The only two groups authorized to take pictures of the crime scene were the National Transportation Safety Board and the coroner’s office, Villanueva said. “Anybody outside of that would be unauthorized, they would be illicit photos.”

Vanessa Bryant, who lost both her husband NBA legend Kobe Bryant and their 13-year-old daughter Gianna in the January crash, was “absolutely devastated” when she learned that first responders may have shared photos of the scene, her attorney Gary C. Robb said in a statement Sunday.

“First responders should be trustworthy. It is inexcusable and deplorable that some deputies from the Lost Hills Sheriff’s substation, other surrounding substations and LAFD would allegedly breach their duty. This is an unspeakable violation of human decency, respect, and of the privacy rights of the victims and their families,” the statement said.

“We are demanding that those responsible for these alleged actions face the harshest possible discipline, and that their identities be brought to light, to ensure that the photos are not further disseminated. We are requesting an internal affairs investigation of these alleged incidents.”

As a result of this incident, Villanueva said his department is trying to change their policies to be more specific. They are also trying to get legislation passed in Sacramento that would make it illegal to take photos of crime scenes that displays human remains. Should that law pass, it would enable law enforcement agencies to obtain search warrants, Villanueva said.

He’s also reached out to the families involved in the crash, including the Bryant family, to express his disgust at the deputies’ alleged actions.

“I personally apologized … on behalf of the poor conduct of our employees and we want to make things right,” Villanueva told CNN. “We don’t want to extend or increase anybody’s anguish.”

CNN’s Sarah Moon and Shawn Nottingham contributed to this report.

Khloe, Kim Kardashian Slam Kourtney for Not Sharing on ‘KUWTK’

Khloé and Kim Kardashian’s frustrations with Kourtney Kardashian are coming to a head. In a new sneak peek of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians episode airing on Sunday, December 8, Khloé and Kim call out their older sister for hiding her personal life on the E! reality show.

The clip starts after Kim, 39, and Khloé, 35 — and the KUWTK cameras — follow Kourtney, 40, to someone’s house and ask her whose residence it is. “I’m here for a meeting,” Kourtney contends. “Do you want to come inside? I’m not literally dating anybody.”

Khloé responds, “But we don’t know, because we don’t know anything about you.”

Kourtney claps back, “What if I actually was? Then what? Like, you bring the cameras here? It’s so disrespectful. … If I have boundaries, respect them. Just because you love to show every single thing …”

However, the Good American designer says it’s their “job” to share their lives on camera.

In a confessional, Kim says that Kourtney isn’t doing her fair share. “Our job is being open and honest and sharing a lot of ourselves, and it just seems like, for the past few years now, Kourtney hasn’t really been open about her personal life on camera,” she says to the camera. “So all of the days that Kourtney isn’t filming, Khloé and I are picking up the slack and having to share more, because if we’re not sharing our loves, then what is the show?”

Khloé echoes the same point during the sisters’ chat outside the house. “You don’t give anything,” she tells Kourtney. “You coast. … You think it’s fair that you just coast through life?”

Kourtney then insists she wants to keep “certain personal things” private. “I said I would not share my relationships. That’s it,” she says. “I shared my breakdown, crying about having anxiety. I share other things. … I’m not like, ‘Turn the cameras off!’”

Then, it’s Kourtney’s turn in the confessional booth. “This is so crazy,” she says the camera. “If they wanted privacy, I would never follow them or, like, expose them.”

The Poosh founder revealed in September that she was considering quitting KUWTK, and she announced last month that she’ll be taking a step back from the show to focus on the three kids she shares with ex Scott Disick: Mason, 9, Penelope, 7, and Reign, 4.

“I just decided to spend more time as a mom and put more of my energy there,” she told Entertainment Tonight at the time. “But I’m not saying goodbye. I think you’ll have to see more of it on the new season, season 18. It isn’t airing yet but it’s being filmed.”

Khloé, however, believes this isn’t the end of Kourtney’s KUWTK involvement. “We love Kourtney … whatever she decides to do,” she said at the time. “I feel like it’s a revolving door, so Kourtney might leave this week, [but] she’ll be back. They all come back.”

Keeping Up With the Kardashians airs on E! Sundays at 9 p.m. ET.

Viral Video Shows Md. Trick-Or-Treater’s Selfless Candy Sharing – CBS Baltimore

ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY, Md. (WJZ) — A video of a young Maryland trick-or-treater’s selflessness is going viral on social media.

The video, posted on Facebook Thursday, shows a young boy named Jackson walking up to a home in search of candy. When he gets to the bowl of sweet treats, he realizes it’s empty.

“There ain’t no more candy,” he said.

“Oh no!” said Danielle Gamino, Jackson’s mom.

Then, without hesitation, he opens his own bag of goodies, pulls out several treats and leaves them behind for the next kids who come to the home in search of candy.

“Aww, that was really nice Jackson,” she said.

“There we go!” he said. And he headed toward the next house.

“I’m happy for the other kids who got the candy,” said Jackson’s mom.

Little did he know, the entire thing was caught on the homeowners’ security camera.

“This has got to give hope to everyone that there are still amazing people in this world,” the homeowner, Leslie Hodges, wrote on Facebook. “What a selfless act from this little guy! Kudos to his parents!!!”

Jackson’s family witnessed him share his treats with no tricks up his sleeves and that was a gratifying moment for a mother.

“It makes me very proud of him. I try to teach him how to be kind and everything, you kind of like a mom go is he listening to me or is he not listening to me?” said Jackson’s mom.

“This has got to give hope to everyone that there are still amazing people in this world” said the homeowner who posted the video.

The video has since racked up more than 6.5 million views as of Friday afternoon; by Friday night it was nearing 10 million.

Elgin man charged with sharing videos of child sexual abuse, torture

ELGIN, Ill. — An Elgin man is accused of distributing multiple videos of children being sexually abused and tortured.

David C. Vogt, 32, was charged with five counts of reproducing child pornography and five counts of possessing child pornography, according to the Kane County state’s attorney’s office.

On June 13, a detective allegedly discovered five videos being downloaded from Vogt’s computer, prosecutors said. Each video allegedly depicts an adult sexually abusing a child, possibly as young as 2 years old, and subjecting them to torture.

Vogt is being held at the Kane County Jail on $500,000 bail, the state’s attorney’s office said. If he posts bond, he is not allowed to use the internet or have contact with anyone younger than 18 and must surrender his passport.

If convicted of all felonies, Vogt faces a sentence of as many as 150 years in prison, the state’s attorney’s office said. He is scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 1.

Netflix may start cracking down on password sharing

Netflix may not be so chill about users piggybacking off friends and family’s streaming accounts in the future.

The streaming service announced future plans for a crackdown on password sharing during a quarterly earnings call earlier this week.

Netflix product chief Greg Peters said he was aware that some users share their password information to circumvent paying for a monthly subscription, but didn’t disclose how many users actually share credentials.

“We continue to monitor [password sharing],” Peters said. “We’ll continue to look at the situation and we’ll see those consumer-friendly ways to push on the edge of that but we’ve got no big plans at this point in time in terms of doing something different there.”

The streaming service already limits the number of devices that can stream from one account and users can currently share accounts to some extent, but are required to limit to one household by setting up individual profiles.

Netflix did not disclose how it would monitor password sharing, but as The Daily Dot pointed out, the company could look to limit IP addresses, which could become a problem for families who live apart.

The streaming platform also announced it added 6.77 million paid subscribers in the quarter ended in September, chalking up some of the success to hit shows like “Stranger Things” and “13 Reasons Why.”
