Wanted man turns himself in after losing Facebook bet with police

A wanted Michigan man has turned himself in after losing a bet he made with police on Facebook. Michael Zaydel had promised to give himself up to police if a Facebook post about an existing arrest warrant received more than 1,000 shares. The cocky 21-year-old even promised to bring Redford Township Police Department (RTPD) officers a dozen doughnuts if they were victorious in the challenge. “I’m not worried about it,” he wrote. “If your next post gets 1,000 shares I’ll turn myself in with a dozen doughnuts and that’s a promise. “And I’ll pick up every piece of litter around your public schools.” In a follow-up post, the department said he “may or may not be a man of his word,” adding, “it is our experience everyone gets caught at some point. He has drawn a lot of attention to himself, and that makes it hard to hide from reality.” The fugitive eventually surrendered to police, fulfilling his promise by arriving at the station with doughnuts and a bagel. “Zaydel made good on his promise to turn himself in to RTPD for his outstanding warrants,” the department said. “He walked in on his own, and not only did he bring the doughnuts, he brought one bagel! We would again like to express our gratitude for the support of all who followed this, shared it, and left us positive feedback.” Mr Zaydel was sentenced to 39 days in jail after pleading guilty to breaking the terms of his probation. Is this the world's most meta mugshot?

Kenyan election official quits, saying re-run election will not be 'credible' 

Added: 19.10.2017 5:30 | 0 views | 0 comments


Kenya’s top election official threw next week’s rerun of the country’s presidential election into doubt on Wednesday, saying that political intimidation and interference meant he could no longer guarantee the credibility of the vote. Hours after one of his colleagues resigned and fled the country saying she feared for her life, Wafula Chebukati, chairman of the electoral commission, also threatened to quit, deepening a political crisis that risks upending one of Africa’s most stable states. Next Thursday’s election marks Kenya’s second attempt in three months to choose a leader after the supreme court overturned President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election in August, citing “irregularities and illegalities” in the transmission of results. But the ruling, unprecedented in Africa, has worsened rather than resolved Kenya’s political impasse. Mr Kenyatta’s challenger, Raila Odinga, withdrew from the rerun earlier this month after electoral officials he accused of rigging the first vote refused to resign. Mr Chebukati accused both the government and the opposition of resorting to tactics that, he said, threatened to pitch Kenya into a “worse situation” than the violent aftermath of an election in 2007 that claimed more than 1,300 lives.

Were Mr Chebukati to resign, the election — which is constitutionally required to be held by Nov 1st — risks being postponed as the chairman of the commission alone has the power to declare the result.  Mr Chebukati’s decision to air his grievances publicly came after Roselyn Akombe, one of his six fellow commissioners, resigned and fled to New York, raised similar concerns and said she feared for her safety after receiving threats. A senior electoral manager with responsibility for the electronic integrity of the vote, was murdered nine days before the August election. “The commission in its current state can surely not guarantee a credible election on 26 October 2017,” she said in a statement. “I do not want to be party to such a mockery to electoral integrity.” Kenyan opposition lawmaker Caleb Amisi Luyai leans through of his car as tear gas billows out Credit: REUTERS In recent days, both President Kenyatta and Mr Odinga appeared to have made some concessions that raised hopes for a negotiated settlement to the crisis. But Mr Odinga has shown little sign of returning to the race. On Wednesday he called for mass protests on election day as part of a strategy to prevent voting taking place in his strongholds — a move that could lead to the poll being nullified again. As many as 70 people have died in election-related violence since August, the vast majority opposition protesters killed by the security forces.
