STUDENT INVENTS DEVICE TO PROTECT FROM SCHOOL SHOOTING

After the recent school shooting in Florida, a high school student in Wisconsin was inspired to invent something in his shop class that could save lives in a crisis like that. Justin Rivard, a senior at Somerset High School, created something he calls the “JustinKase,” and it just slips under a classroom door and latches to the door’s jam.

The JustinKase is made of steel plates and connecting rods and so far, Justin hasn’t found anyone who can push a classroom door open when it’s in place. He even tried it with linemen from his high school football team. It works so well, his school has ordered 50 of them, one for every classroom.

"You can lock a door with a lock, it can get shot out," Justin says. "You can lock a door with this, it can't get shot out. You can't get around it."

Fox Business did an awesome story about it.  Check it out below...


JASON'S STORY

MAN WITH RED SAUCE ON FACE CHARGED WITH MEATBALL THEFT

Man with red sauce on face charged with meatball theft.

Police say a damning clue led to the arrest of a Pennsylvania man charged with stealing a pot of meatballs — red sauce smeared on his face and clothes.

Authorities in Luzerne County have charged 48-year-old Leahman Glenn Robert Potter with burglary, criminal trespass and theft by unlawful taking for allegedly swiping a pot of meatballs from a man's garage on Monday.

Police say the victim reported his meatballs missing and told officers at around 2:30 p.m. Monday that he saw Potter standing in front of his house with red sauce on his face and clothes. The pot was found on the street.

It's unclear if Potter washed the sauce off before he was arrested a short time later.

Potter's attorney did not immediately respond to a voicemail seeking comment.
