current events!

US girl's mum shoots Kiwi.


WHO:Troy Skinner, a 14-year old US girl and her mum (or mom)

WHERE:Goochland US.

WHEN:published 26th of June 2018

HOW:by communicating online.

WHAT: A New Zealander named Troy Skinner went on a plane to  Goochland, US from Auckland, New Zealand. He went to go face to face with the 14-year old US girl that he was chatting to online. When Troy showed up at the US girl's home Troy claimed that he was a hitchhiker who needed some help. the  sheriff James Agnew "All I can say is the manner in which he attempted to enter that home in the face of a firearm pointed at him and the implements we recovered from him - the only inference is that he had very bad intent."                 The Goochland County sheriff said Skinner bought a knife and duct tape from Walmart after arriving in the US. The girl's mother saw Troy trying to enter her home, warned him several times she had a gun, then fired after he broke the glass with a brick on the second door he tried to open the bullet hit him in the neck. The reason he went to the US is because he liked her but she found it weird so she didn't want to talk anymore.

IN MY OPINION:I bet the girl would have learnt her lesson and if I was troy I  probably would take the warning but on the other hand I wouldn't really believe it.

WONDERING:I wonder if she got taught in school to not share your details online?

HOW:by giving it CPR.

WHAT: An Australian man called Jamie Chapel  is a snake catcher and has revived a frog by giving it CPR. Jamie predicded that the frog was dead after the tree snake he was called to catch this month spat it up.Believing the frog had been swallowed within the past hour, he washed the mucus off it, and gave it tiny chest compressions for about a minute until it came to.

"If I could quickly clean it up, I could have a go at bringing it back to life," Jamie said.He said the snake regurgitated it because he saw Chapel as a threat.
lucky He's really done well. He's putting on a little bit of weight now.

He treated it for deep cuts, keeping the amphibian until it was well enough for release and naming it "Lucky".

IN MY OPINION: I think this is descusting and I would just leave the frog. 

I WONDER: I wonder what breed lucky is?

Concern for children as drivers fail to stop.

Concern for children as drivers fail to stop.

WHO:St Pauls Catholic primary school and Waimea Intermediate

WHERE: Nelson 

WHEN:30th of may 2018

WHY/HOW:people fail to stop and let the school kids go past the pedestrian crossing making them later.  

WHAT:St Pauls Catholic primary school and Waimea Intermediate have a few of there students and parents being crossing guards to make sure that all the kids can cross the road safely. The schools made a decion a few years ago that adults would take over the duties of road patrol and the kids would assist.A person says “I just don’t think its fair to put that kind of pressure on to the kids. It’s just too aggressive out here. The majority of drivers are fine, they get it, but there are a few that just don’t slow down or stop. We had a guy overtake a bus last week. We got the kids off the road but the driver was gone, we didn’t catch his plate.” The council could review whether there were any changes it could make to encourage safer driver.

MY OPINION:I think its good that the parents are doing most of the crossings because it will take of most of the pressure of the kids even though there the older ones.
