It’s the Wild West in Penn Station. The vagrant whose alleged threats got a homeless outreach nonprofit to flee the transit hub in fear last weekend was holding court—and spewing hate at cops—there Thursday. Eugene Watts was spotted sipping a brown-bag beer in the station one day after The Post reported that embattled nonprofit Bowery Residents Committee up and abandoned its satellite office there because he allegedly threatened to shoot workers. Watts, who claims to be a former boxer, remained defiant Thursday. “Mr. Eugene Watts, you have five minutes to leave,” one of two passing Amtrak cops on patrol at the busy transit hub

Comments:

The prizewinner's retort to the cops is a gem, and sums up the folly of allowing crazy people—from Democrats to the homeless—to call the shots.

He may be a former boxer, but I'll bet that my Colt 1911 would win in a fight!

What, exactly, is ‘homeless outreach’? It sounds like a liberal bastion that spends a lot of money that can’t be traced. In the meantime the criminally insane have taken over Penn Station.

The non violent ones aren't any better. They all have a sob story as to why they are on the streets and its never their fault. They are all going to get a job tomorrow. They are all experts at something but never seem to be able to find work in that field, and they wont work for less than they think they are worth. So you feel bad for them and help. Guess what, you just became a mark. Every time they want something they'll come looking for you. The worst thing you can do is let one stay in your house for "a day or two". The worst case of that I ever saw went to two years and my friend had to give up her lease and move out herself to get away. Then the old hippie woman just found another mark a few miles away. Helping these people isn't helping.

Bums are bums for a reason. Also, stop calling them "homeless". They are : transients, bums, vagrants, vagabonds, derelicts, panhandlers, beggers, goldbricks, drifters, and hobos.

He threatens to shoot people and the best the police can do is tell him to 'move along'? Seriously?

Boeing has another problem now with dozens of its undelivered 737 MAX jets—trash in the fuel tanks. The embattled plane maker found everything from tools to rags inside the fuel tanks of about 35 aircraft, a company spokesman told Reuters. Company inspectors have checked about 50 of the roughly 400 MAX jets built after two crashes in October 2018 and March 2019 that killed 346 people.(Snip) The FAA moved to step up surveillance of the manufacturing after Boeing informed it about the debris in November, according to the Wall Street Journal, and is waiting for additional inspection findings before taking further action.

George Clooney‘s home is in deep water—literally. The Oscar winner and wife Amal Clooney‘s mansion in Berkshire, England, suffered major flood damage after Storm Dennis struck the region. Photos show that nearly all of the land surrounding the $13 million estate, including the basketball court, was almost completely submerged in water. But a rep for the “Ocean’s Eleven” star exclusively tells Page Six that “all is fine” after the flooding. According to Architectural Digest, the Clooneys purchased the 17th-century mansion shortly after their Venetian wedding in 2014. The home sits on a four-acre island in the middle of the River Thames.

They say the music is the message, and it probably doesn’t take much reading between the lines to get the meaning behind the music Donald Trump walked on stage to at his Colorado Springs rally on Thursday night. As the president stepped out in front of the crowd, The Rolling Stones’ 1965 song Play With Fire blasted out across the venue. The lyric: “But don't play with me, 'cause you're playing with fire,” might indicate a new, ominous, post-impeachment cockiness.(Snip) He has already removed Alexander Vindman from his position as an expert with the National Security Council following his testimony during the

A 63-year-old unemployed Colombian national living in Englewood repeatedly molested a 10-year-old child, authorities charged. Luis G. Ocampo remained held Friday in the Bergen County Jail following his arrest the day before, records show. Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella said his Special Victims Unit and Englewood police investigated a report that led to Ocampo’s arrest “regarding the sexual assault of a ten year-old juvenile on multiple occasions.” Ocampo will remain held until a first appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack on charges of sexual assault and child endangerment, the prosecutor said.

Ann Arbor, Michigan—University of Michigan officials were warned more than four decades ago that one of its doctors was fondling patients during medical exams, but he continued working there despite a demotion and went on to allegedly abuse again as a physician with the school’s athletic department, records obtained Friday by The Associated Press show. In 1980, the late Dr. Robert E. Anderson was pressed to step down as head of the University Health Service amid such concerns, according to a statement that his former supervisor gave to a campus detective who had started investigating the physician more than a year ago

Parents are suing a Wisconsin school district for adopting a policy that allows students of any age to transition to a different gender and use a different name while at school without parental notice or consent. The policy, according to the religious-liberty law firm Alliance Defending Freedom, prevents school officials from communicating about the child’s choice to transition with parents if the student does not consent. The parents charge that the school’s policy violates their parental rights, usurping the upbringing of their children under Wisconsin law. “Many mental health and psychiatric professionals believe that children with gender dysphoria should not immediately transition

Should Utah Sen. Mitt Romney attempt another shot at the White House — but this time on the independent ticket, with former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as his running mate? The hypothetical Romney-Bloomberg ticket would give millions and millions of independent and moderate Democratic and Republican voters stuck in the middle a solid choice for president, which doesn’t exist now between democratic-socialist Bernie Sanders and current White House occupant and Twitter-flamethrower President Donald Trump. That’s what author, Maryland business executive and former U.S. Senate candidate Neal Simon wrote in his article he shared with Lee Lonsberry on KSL NewsRadio's show Live Mic.

On Tuesday, news broke that the Queen had banned Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from marketing the “Sussex Royal” brand. Friday morning, another story broke, saying that Meghan was whining about this because she and Harry had already invested money in selling themselves. Also on Friday, the Queen won and Meghan backed down. Queen Elizabeth comes from a generation that holds that you can’t eat your cake and have it. In other words, when you make choices, you have to take both the benefit and the burden of that choice. Meghan Markle, on the other hand, is a child of the Veruca Salt generation.

A newly discovered species of snail has been named after teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg, scientists announced in a new study published Thursday. The critter, which was discovered in Brunei on the island of Borneo, now has the scientific name Craspedotropis gretathunbergae. "The newly described snail belongs to the so-called caenogastropods, a group of land snails known to be sensitive to drought, temperature extremes and forest degradation," snail expert and study lead author Menno Schilthuizen said in a statement. The tiny mollusk, which is about 2 millimeters in size, was discovered by citizen-scientists from the tour group Taxon Expeditions

The metal discs had burst into buildings and crashed into the underside of a car, which in turn caught fire. Power outages and evacuations had ensued. This was just the latest addition to a cluster of troubling events.
