Sinead O'Connor On Suicide Watch — Reportedly Threatening To Jump Off Chicago Bridge

Filed under: Sad SadMental HealthScary!

So scary.

This is terrifying.

On Thursday, Chicago police got a disturbing call saying that Sinead O'Connor was suicidal and planning to jump off a bridge in the Illinois city.

The 49-year-old had apparently called her family to tell them she was going to kill herself, and then dialed the cops in Dublin, Ireland to tell them where she was planning to take her life.

Irish authorities then contacted Chicago police to notify them of the scary situation. An alert on the CPD scanner said:

"The word from the Ireland police sergeant Claire Mulligan, Dublin, Ireland, is saying that at 1530 hours Sinead O'Connor called and said, 'I'm on a bridge in Chicago and I'm going to jump.'"

Whoa. So scary.

While authorities are not undergoing an active search, they have been instructed to keep an eye out for the songwriter. In fact, sources say cops thought they saw someone fitting the description, but that person was not the troubled singer.

The Irish artist has had suicidal thoughts in the past, and has struggled with depression recently.

We just hope she's safe. Our hearts are with everyone effected during this terrifying time.

This is so sad — and not a very welcome sight in addition to all of the tough news of the past week.

Mexican-born singer Alejandro 'Jano' Fuentes, a former finalist on his home country's version of The Voice, was shot multiple times in Chicago on Thursday before succumbing to his injuries on Saturday.

He was just 45 years old.

According to police, the man was shot outside Tras Bambalinas School, a performing arts school that he owned in Chicago, as he was celebrating his birthday.

A male suspect approached the victim — who was sitting in a car — and ordered him to get out.

When the victim refused, he was shot multiple times, after which the suspect fled on foot.

Even though Chicago Police did not confirm Fuentes' identity to media outlets, multiple local reports have independently confirmed that the victim in this tragedy is Fuentes.

This is just sad and scary on another level.

Antonio Perkins was hanging out on the sidewalk on Wednesday afternoon when he was suddenly shot dead… and the whole thing was caught on camera.

Perkins, 28, was on a Chicago street casually partying when he started recording a video on Facebook Live, complaining about the heat and laughing with friends.

However, after roughly five minutes of recording, about a dozen gun shots rang out from off camera, and Perkins was hit — and the video captured bloody grass and more as the phone tumbled to the ground.

From there, the screen

Former Republican Speaker Of The House Dennis Hastert Sentenced To 15 Months In Prison After Bribing Teenage Molestation Victim

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersPolitikBusted!

no title

A Republican who has a history of voting against gay rights but also has a history of molesting teenage boys? No such thing…

Former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert was sentenced to 15 months in prison on Wednesday after admitting to molesting four teenage boys back when he was a wrestling coach at Yorkville Community Unit School District 115 in Illinois between 1965 and 1981.

Unfortunately, the 74-year-old's crimes had far surpassed the statute of limitations, but luckily U.S. District Judge Thomas M. Durkin was able to convict Dennis for a similar offense in a Chicago court.

Apparently, the Republican had been contacted by the FBI in 2015 as to why he had been withdrawing large amounts of money when he claimed he was being blackmailed by a person only identified as "Individual A."

Prince Generously Funded Charities And Mentored Artists ANONYMOUSLY! WATCH HERE!

He was truly a beloved soul.

On Thursday, Prince was found unconscious in his elevator, as paramedics were unable to revive him. He was eventually pronounced dead that afternoon.

When news got out, several artists and politicians spoke highly of the Purple Rain artist's legacy, for both his work in music and his humanitarian efforts.

On CNN, political commentator and friend Van Jones spoke about the 57-year-old's life that only his inner circle knew about.

It turns out the legendary musician funded several charities including Yes We Code and Green For All that respectively gave underprivileged youth technical jobs in Silicon Valley, and provided homes with solar panels.

Last year, Prince famously performed in locations such as Chicago, New Orleans, and Baltimore. According to Jones, he did these concerts in order to help local organizations deal with police brutality and social injustice.

As a Jehovah's Witness, the Minnesota-native did not allow himself to speak publicly about his good deeds. However, his actions spoke so much louder than words, and touched so many lives.

He will definitely be missed.
