Disabled Woman With Cancer Sues Airport & TSA After Bloody Beatdown By Federal Agents

This is awful!

A young disabled woman was beaten bloody by federal agents during an airport security screening — right after undergoing treatment for a brain tumor.

Hannah Cohen was at Memphis International Airport making the routine trip back home to Chattanooga, Tennessee with her mother after getting treatment at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital on June 30, 2015.

The 19-year-old has limited ability to walk, talk, stand, and hear due to an impairment from radiation and removal of a brain tumor — and is easily confused as a result.

According to Cohen's legal team, the unarmed woman accidentally set off the metal detector at the security checkpoint and didn't understand that TSA was about to conduct further scanning, explaining:

"(She) became disoriented and confused by the warning alarm and the actions of the personnel manning the security checkpoint to try to search her person because of her disability. The security personnel failed to recognize that she was confused because of her obvious disability and was unable to cooperate with the search."

Though Shirley Cohen repeatedly tried to tell TSA agents her daughter is partially blind, deaf, paralyzed, and underwent anesthesia the day before, the mother was reportedly kept at a distance by police.

She remembered:

"[Hannah was] trying to get away from them but in the next instant, one of them had her down on the ground and hit her head on the floor. There was blood everywhere."

Wow, this is unreal!

Shirley released a photo of her bloodied daughter from the arrest, but we have to warn you that it's pretty graphic (below):

Here's how you can help.

Since its release, Rachel Platten's Fight Song has been an enduring anthem for overcoming adversity.

On Friday, the singer released an acoustic version of the successful single, announcing that all proceeds will be donated to the National Compassion Fund.

The musician took to Instagram to make the announcement, posting:

Police Reveal They Have Video Of LGBT YouTube Star Calum McSwiggan Hurting Himself As He Claims Backlash Over Alleged Attack Is Ruining His Reputation!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayBusted!YouTubeViolenceDisgusting!Viral: NewsControversyLGBT

The drama continues...

Calum McSwiggan is adamant that he's not faking his alleged attack.

Over the weekend, the YouTuber claims he was jumped by three strangers outside of West Hollywood's gay club, The Abbey, in an apparent hate crime.

And while police say they didn't see any injuries or evidence of an assault while responding to his call, the 26-year-old insists the attack actually happened.

In a newly-released interview with The Advocate, the online personality stressed that the cops should have taken his word for it, saying:

"I think if somebody is a victim of a crime, that person should be given the benefit of the doubt and believed. Just because there are no physical markings on my face other than the broken teeth, that doesn't mean I wasn't assaulted, and that is why the police think I wasn't assaulted."

The UK native went on to say that the way the cops slapped him with charges for vandalism and filing a false police report isn't fair, considering he says he's the victim in this incident:

"I went to the police and now apparently I'm a criminal."

However, the police have revealed that they have video

What a sick case of vigilantism!

In your insane crime story of the week, a Minnesota man named Joseph Thoresen has been charged by police for the brutal murder and decapitation of David Haiman over an alleged rape.

Apparently Mr. Thoresen believed that David had sexually assaulted his girlfriend, a claim that has yet to be proven.

The brutal crime was discovered on June 24 after cops found themselves in a high speed chase with a vehicle in which Thoresen was the passenger. Upon questioning the driver of the car, police found out that Joseph had confessed to a VERY gruesome crime and that the truck in question was actually the victim's.

Police found Thoresen's girlfriend, referred to in reports only as K.D.G., a few days later, and she confirmed the driver's tale.

According to K.D.G., Haiman was about to visit them at their home on June 21 when she told Thoresen about the rape.

Haiman supposedly allowed the couple to

Gun Shop Raising Money For Orlando Shooting Victims — By Raffling Off An AR-15 Assault Rifle!

Just in case we didn't already think gun advocates were out of touch with reality…

Countless organizations have taken the steps to help raise money for victims of the mass shooting in Orlando — but one effort came across more insensitive than charitable.

According to reports, a Chicago-area gun store set up a raffle to raise money for the victims of the massacre.

And the prize of the raffle being offered by Second Amendment Sports is none other than an AR-15 rifle — the same type of weapon that Omar Mateen used to kill 49 people earlier this month.

Despite this raffle sounding like something from a rejected Saturday Night Live sketch, the owners of the gun shop insist their efforts were genuine.
