Video shows police officer punching 14-year-old girl during arrest

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/20/2018 - 19:25

Police in Coral Springs, Florida, are defending an officer's actions after he was filmed punching a 14-year-old girl while she was pinned to the ground during an arrest. The Coral Springs Police Department has issued a statement saying the cellphone video doesn't tell the entire story.

"The officer's actions were 100 percent within policy, legal and were not excessive," Dept. Chief Brad McKeone told reporters, CBS Miami reports.

The department said officers were called to the Coral Springs Mall on Thursday because teens were harassing patrons, and a mother claimed one of the teens shoved her 5-year-old child to the ground.

Police banned the group from the mall at the request of its security team, but police said they eventually returned. After one person was arrested, police said the girl in the video attempted to "incite" other teens.

"Officers attempted to take her into custody, at which time she began to fight and resist arrest. Due to her stature and aggressive behavior, officers took her to the ground attempting to get her to release her fists," the department said in a statement.

The teen's mother, Jessica Dennis, said the officer went "completely overboard."

"Her hands are pinned up, he's fish tailing her whole body with her shorts. It was just too much going on and she clearly wasn't aggressive," Dennis said in a news conference, CBS Miami reports.

The family's attorney, Meeghan Moldof, only spoke about the moments captured on video and said she wouldn't comment on the criminal aspect of the case. "But to say that the police officer was justified to punch her continuously while he has his knee on her back and her hands under her belly, the video speaks for itself."

Police said they are not investigating the officer's actions, however, that could change if the mother decides to file a formal complaint, CBS Miami reports.

Jayme Closs: Investigators receive 1,000 tips on missing teen

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/20/2018 - 19:12

Investigators said they have received over 1,000 tips in the case of missing 13-year-old Jayme Closs. The Wisconsin teen has not been seen since her parents were found shot to death inside their home.

More than 800 of the tips received have been investigated, Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said Saturday.

"We are using every resource available, and have conducted hundreds of interviews, multiple searches, and are using the technical and forensic expertise of our state and federal resources to locate the person or persons who committed this offense and to locate Jayme," Fitzgerald said in a statement.

Authorities told CBS News that Jayme was home when her parents — 46-year-old Denise and 56-year-old James Closs — were killed. Investigators said the front door was shot in. Jayme was ruled out as a suspect on the first day, and investigators believe she is in danger.

On Friday, investigators released a log of the 911 call, which was inaudible except for screaming in the background. The 911 call indicates Jayme was at home when it was made. The log indicated the 911 call came from Jayme's mother.

Fitzgerald said earlier this week that investigators still have a "100 percent expectation that she's alive."

Jayme has been placed at the top of the FBI's Missing list, CBS Minnesota reports.

"It just breaks your heart that it's this close to home, because Barron's a small town. It's quiet," a neighbor told CBS Minnesota.

Amy Schumer supports Kaepernick, tells rep she won't do Super Bowl ads

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/20/2018 - 19:03

Don't look for Amy Schumer in any Super Bowl LIII commercials this time around. She's sitting this one out as she stands with Colin Kaepernick and his take-a-knee protest against racism and police brutality.

The comedian and "I Feel Pretty" actress explained her stance at length Friday on Instagram, challenging white NFL players to kneel as well. Addressing them directly, she wrote: "Otherwise how are you not complicit?"

Of her plan to steer clear of Super Bowl ads, she said: "I personally told my reps I wouldn't do a Super Bowl commercial this year. I know it must sound like a privilege ass sacrifice but it's all I got."

View this post on Instagram

Friday thought. I wonder why more white players aren’t kneeling. Once you witness the truly deep inequality and endless racism people of color face in our country, not to mention the police brutality and murders. Why not kneel next to your brothers? Otherwise how are you not complicit? I think it would be cool if @maroon5 backed out of super bowl like @badgalriri Did. I personally told my reps I wouldn’t do a Super Bowl commercial this year. I know it must sound like a privilege ass sacrifice but it’s all i got. Hitting the nfl with the advertisers is the only way to really hurt them. I know opposing the nfl is like opposing the nra. Very tough, but don’t you want to be proud of how you’re living? Stand up for your brothers and sisters of color. And the hottest thing a guy can do is get down on one knee. Not to propose but to reject the treatment of his teammates by this country. Anyone who says its disrespectful to our military please read up on the fact that a lot of veterans are proud of what @kaepernick7 is doing and fully support him. What are your thoughts?

A post shared by @ amyschumer on Oct 19, 2018 at 8:11am PDT


Diddy, Jessica Seinfeld and Christie Brinkley offered her support among more than 8,000 comments left on her post. It was not immediately clear whether she had been approached to appear in an ad during the big game.

In 2016, Schumer appeared with Seth Rogen in a political-themed campaign for Bud Light, "Raise One to Right Now," during Super Bowl 50.

"Hitting the nfl with the advertisers is the only way to hurt them," Schumer wrote of her ban. "I know opposing the nfl is like opposing the nra. Very tough ..."

LOS ANGELES — Film and TV actress Selma Blair announced she is dealing with a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis.

In a post Saturday on her Instagram account, Blair, 46, says she was diagnosed with the disease of the central nervous system on Aug. 16.

Blair has co-starred in a number of films and TV shows, including the 2001 hit "Legally Blonde."

Political rivals stun voters with unexpected duet after debate

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/20/2018 - 15:30

LAMOILLE COUNTY, Vt. — In Lamoille County, Vermont, the fall colors are at their peak. Everywhere you look, bursts of Lucy Rogers green, and Zac Mayo red, white and blue.

"We don't need as much government," Zac said.

He's the Republican. She's the Democrat.

"I'm pretty centrally focused on healthcare," Lucy said.

They're aggressively competing for a state House seat. Both have visited, or plan to visit, every single home in the district — all 2,000 plus. The locals say they've never seen anything like it.

"They both want to win in the worst way," one person said.

But this highly competitive race took a dramatic turn recently. It happened during their debate, when the candidates asked for a few extra minutes at the end to do something together. They stood up from their tables and began moving the furniture, preparing for what appeared to be some kind of musical performance.

But no one knew what was coming. Indeed, what happened at the local library that night was totally unexpected and unprecedented in modern American politics.

"Because we asked them if we could have a few minutes at the end to play a duet," Lucy said.

"It strikes a chord," Zac said. "To say to the world that this is a better way."

With that, the Democrat and the Republican united in perfect harmony. There weren't enough tissues to go around.

"It marked a turning point for us," one person said.

"It gave me a lot of hope," said another.

The song they played that night -- and for us after -- is about longing for a less competitive society. Their rendition so resonated with folks in northern Vermont, CBS News actually saw houses that had signs for both candidates -- a clear indication that the winner of this race has already been decided: A landslide victory for civility.

Hundreds of migrants in U.S.-bound caravan cross Mexico-Guatemala border

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/20/2018 - 13:58

TECUN UMAN, Guatemala -- A U.S.-bound caravan that once totaled more than 3,000 Central American migrants looked to be about a third that size Saturday morning, when its remaining members woke up on a bridge that divides the borders of Guatemala and Mexico and waited to get past a crossing guarded by hundreds of Mexican federal police.

Hundreds of migrants have already crossed, some legally, some not. It's unclear whether any have simply turned back.

Members of the migrant caravan burst through a Guatemalan border fence on Friday and rushed onto the bridge over the Suchiate River. Men and women, some with young children and babies drenched in sweat, began storming and climbing the barrier — tearing it down. They defied Mexican authorities' entreaties for an orderly crossing and U.S. President Donald Trump's threats of retaliation.

But they were met Friday by a wall of police with riot shields on the Mexican side of the bridge. About 50 managed to push their way through before officers unleashed pepper spray and the rest retreated, joining the sea of humanity on the bridge.

Police and immigration agents began letting small groups of 10, 20 or 30 people through the gates if they wanted to apply for refugee status. Once they file a claim, they can go to a shelter to spend the night.

Some migrants, tired of waiting, jumped off the bridge into the Suchiate River on Friday. They risked drowning over defeat. When asked why he wanted to jump, one 16-year-old said, "there are no jobs here."

Some organized a rope brigade to ford its muddy waters or floated across on rafts operated by local residents who usually charge a dollar or two to make the crossing.

As dawn broke Saturday, hundreds of migrants awoke amid garbage that had already piled up on the bridge. Without bathrooms, a foul odor wafted through the air.

Jose Yanez had slept with no blanket, but vowed to continue.

"From here, we're going on. From here, there's no turning back," said the 25-year-old farmer, adding that he makes 150 lempiras a day in Honduras, or about $6, and has no work benefits.

Other migrants managed to catch rest under tarps and plastic sheets.

Alison Danisa wept as she knelt on the ground, clutching her naked 11-month-old infant to her breast.

"We have suffered so much. She has a fever and we brought nothing," she said, showing the baby's bare bottom to indicate they had no diapers.

On Friday, a Mexican marine official with a loudspeaker approached the gate and told migrants they would be taken in trucks to "a humanitarian attention center" in Tapachula, a border city in the Mexican state of Chiapas. But the official did not say when this would happen.

Migrants have banded together to travel en masse regularly in recent years, but this caravan was unusual for its huge size, said Victor Clark Alfaro, a Latin American studies professor at San Diego State University. By comparison, a caravan in April that also attracted Trump's ire numbered about 1,000.

"It grabs one's attention that the number of people in these kinds of caravans is on the rise," Clark Alfaro said. "It is migration of a different dimension."

Elizabeth Oglesby, a professor at the University of Arizona's Center for Latin American Studies, said people join caravans like this because it's a way to make the journey in a relatively safe manner and avoid having to pay thousands of dollars to smugglers.

Late Friday night, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said in an address to the nation that a large group of migrants had "tried to enter Mexican territory irregularly, attacking and even hurting some elements of the Federal Police."

"Mexico does not permit and will not permit entry into its territory in an irregular fashion, much less in a violent fashion," he said.

Mexican officials said those with passports and valid visas -- only a tiny minority of those trying to cross -- would be let in immediately. Migrants who want to apply for refuge in Mexico were welcome to do so, they said, but any who decide to cross illegally and are caught will be detained and deported.

Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez tweeted late Friday that he spoke with his Guatemalan counterpart, Jimmy Morales, and asked permission to send Honduran civil protection personnel to the bridge to help the migrants. "I also asked authorization to hire ground transportation for anyone who wants to return and an air bridge for special cases of women, children, the elderly and the sick," Hernandez tweeted.

Hernandez and Morales are expected to meet in Guatemala early Saturday to discuss the situation.

The U.S. president, meanwhile, has made it clear to Mexico that he is monitoring its response. On Thursday he threatened to close the U.S. border if Mexico didn't stop the caravan. Later that day he tweeted a video of Mexican federal police deploying at the Guatemalan border and wrote: "Thank you Mexico, we look forward to working with you!"

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has called illegal migration a "crisis" and emphasized "the importance of stopping this flow before it reaches the U.S. border," while also acknowledging Mexico's right to handle the crisis in a sovereign fashion.

He also said, "We have to fix U.S. laws in order to handle this properly. This is an American burden and a uniquely American burden."

Oglesby, the professor at the University of Arizona's Center for Latin American Studies, disputed Pompeo's assertion that that there is a "crisis" of migration.

"The border is not in crisis. This is not a migration crisis. ... Yes, we are seeing some spikes in Central Americans crossing the border, but overall migration is at a 40-year low," Oglesby said.

Body found in Texas lake was of woman missing days earlier

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/20/2018 - 13:45

JUNCTION, Texas — A body found this past week in a rain-swollen Central Texas lake is that of an Alabama woman who went missing Oct. 8 when floodwaters overwhelmed an RV park, authorities said Saturday.

Burnet County sheriff's officials said the body of Charlotte Moye was found on Lake Lyndon B. Johnson near Kingsland on Tuesday.

Moye and three men went missing about a week earlier when the Llano River, surging from days of rain, overran its banks and swept through the South Llano RV Park in Junction. The Llano River extends about 80 miles (128 kilometers) from Junction to Kingsland, which is northwest of Austin.

The bodies of two of the men were found Oct. 11. A third was found two days later.

Kimble County Sheriff Hilario Cantu on Saturday identified one of the men as Darin Hartman, of San Angelo.

He said the other two men were Joseph "Joey" Huss Jr. and Mike McGee, both of Flomaton, Alabama. It's believed Moye also was from Flomaton, which is on the Florida border.

Texas has been besieged in recent weeks by heavy rains that have caused widespread flooding. Gov. Greg Abbott during a news conference Friday cautioned residents along the Gulf Coast and South Texas to be cautious as engorged rivers send floodwaters downstream.

Flooding along the Llano, Guadalupe and other rivers likely will continue for another week, he said. Conditions could worsen in some areas with another round of rain forecast to move over the state next week.

More than 50 counties are part of a state disaster declaration that could result in state and federal aid for cleanup efforts.

Ohio woman 2nd person charged in daughter's rape, slaying

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/20/2018 - 11:56

ASHTABULA, Ohio — Authorities say an Ohio woman has become the second person charged in the rape and beating death of her 13-month-old daughter last year.

The Ashtabula Star Beacon reports the indictment Wednesday of 23-year-old Kelsie Blankenship, of Conneaut, on a murder charge in Sereniti Jazzlynn-Sky Sutley's death follows the indictment last November of her live-in boyfriend, 38-year-old Joshua Gurto, on aggravated murder and rape charges. Gurto was not the child's father.

A coroner ruled the toddler died in October 2017 from blunt-force trauma to the head and body.

Blankenship is scheduled for arraignment Tuesday. Court records don't indicate whether she has an attorney.

Ashtabula County Prosecutor Nicholas Iarocci said at a Friday news conference that Blankenship has been a person of interest since her daughter died and has cooperated with investigators.

4 killed in car struck by pickup truck at Ohio intersection

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/20/2018 - 11:12

ASHTABULA, Ohio — Authorities say four people inside a car struck by a pickup truck that failed to stop at an intersection have died in northeast Ohio.

The accident occurred late Friday in Ashtabula. The State Highway Patrol has identified the victims as 18-year-old Giovanni Miller, 19-year-old Anastiasa Smith, their 22-month-old son, Giovanni Miller, and 47-year-old Michelle Hommes, all of Ashtabula. They died at the crash site.

The patrol says in a statement the 48-year-old Ashtabula man driving the pickup truck received minor injuries. His pickup hit a utility pole and a tree after the accident.

The statement says alcohol or drugs appear to be a factor. No one was available at the patrol's Ashtabula post-Saturday morning to say whether the pickup truck driver was arrested or how fast he was driving.

Unburied fetuses, other bodies found in second funeral home

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/20/2018 - 10:57

DETROIT — About 36 fetuses and infants have been removed from a Detroit funeral home, the second facility where remains have been improperly disposed.

Detroit police raided Perry Funeral Home on Friday and found the remains.

Jason Moon of the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs says the remains were found in three unrefrigerated boxes. Also, additional remains were found in a deep freezer. Some of the bodies had dates of death in 2015.

Perry Funeral Home is the second such facility in Detroit where fetuses have been found. Several cremated remains were found by cleaning crews at the former Cantrell Funeral Home where mummified remains of 10 fetuses were discovered last week in a ceiling.

Police Chief James Craig says law enforcement agencies are considering forming a task force to investigate the issue, specifically targeting improper storage of remains and fraud.

Ohio has 4 cases of mysterious illness striking children

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/20/2018 - 10:43

COLUMBUS, Ohio — State health officials say four cases of a rare, mysterious illness that can paralyze children have been confirmed in Ohio amid a jump in such cases nationally.

The Ohio Department of Health said Friday it has notified healthcare providers to be alert for and to report suspected cases of the neurological condition called acute flaccid myelitis, or AFM. It's characterized by sudden, asymmetric weakness in the arms or legs. The cause is unknown.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed 62 cases across 22 states this year, compared with 33 cases last year, and is investigating dozens of more reports. Most of the confirmed cases nationally, including all those in Ohio, involve children.

Ohio's reported cases occurred in Columbiana, Cuyahoga, Mercer and Pickaway counties in August and September.

Immunotherapy scores a first win against some breast cancers

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/20/2018 - 10:04

For the first time, one of the new immunotherapy drugs has shown promise against breast cancer in a large study that combined it with chemotherapy to treat an aggressive form of the disease. But the benefit for most women was small, raising questions about whether the treatment is worth its high cost and side effects.

Drugs that activate the immune system have transformed cancer care. The new study tested one called Tecentriq for cancers not fueled by hormones or a common gene mutation. Women given the drug plus chemo went about two months longer before their cancer worsened compared to others given just the chemo.

Results were discussed Saturday at a cancer conference in Munich and published by the New England Journal of Medicine.

Aguilar, Brewers beat Dodgers 7-2, send NLCS to Game 7

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/20/2018 - 05:51

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Ryan Braun slid across home plate and raised his arms in sheer joy.

A big lead, a bruising bullpen and a boisterous crowd have the Milwaukee Brewers all set up for Game 7.

Jesus Aguilar sparked Milwaukee's slumping lineup with three RBIs on a pair of two-out hits, and the Brewers beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-2 on Friday night to even the NL Championship Series at three games each.

"I don't think about me. The most important thing, at the end of the day, is win games," said Aguilar, who had driven in just two runs in the playoffs. "Tomorrow it can be somebody else. Tonight, it was me."

Game 7 is Saturday night in front of the same frenzied crowd that booed Manny Machado vociferously after he tangled with Aguilar while the series was in Los Angeles. Dodgers rookie Walker Buehler faces journeyman Jhoulys Chacin, with well-rested relief ace Josh Hader looming in the bullpen for Milwaukee after a surprise day off.

It's the first Game 7 for the Brewers since losing to St. Louis in 1982 in their only World Series appearance. The Dodgers dropped Game 7 of the World Series last year to Houston.

"Got to get them tomorrow. We got one more game," Machado said. "They played good baseball today. So, we just got to play a better one tomorrow."

David Freese led off this Game 6 with a home run that quieted Miller Park — but just for a moment.

Backed by raucous fans waving yellow towels that read "ONE TOUGH CREW," Milwaukee rebounded from consecutive losses at Dodger Stadium with the same formula it used to win the NL Central during a breakout season.

Some timely hitting by Aguilar and company produced an early lead, and Corey Knebel and Jeremy Jeffress led the way in another shutdown performance by Milwaukee's tough bullpen.

"Anybody, anywhere, anytime," Knebel said. "We're ready to go."

Los Angeles was looking for its second straight NL pennant and some time to prepare for the mighty Boston Red Sox in the World Series. But losing pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu was tagged for four runs in the first inning, two on a double by Aguilar that sent Braun sliding home.

After Wade Miley pitched into the fifth inning in his second straight start — he faced only one batter in Game 5 — Knebel, Jeffress and Corbin Burnes closed it out with hitless relief. Knebel got the win and Burnes retired the Dodgers in order in the ninth, setting off a wild celebration for the crowd of 43,619.

Manager Craig Counsell considered bringing in Hader, especially in the eighth, but Aguilar scored on a wild pitch in the seventh and singled in Lorenzo Cain in the eighth. The extra room helped persuade Counsell to give Hader another day of rest. The rocket-armed reliever hasn't pitched since Tuesday in Game 4.

"Best-case scenario for sure for us," Counsell said.

Freese drove in both runs for the Dodgers. The rest of the Los Angeles lineup managed just three measly singles. Hounded by boos all night long, Machado went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts.

"You know what? I'm focused on the game," Machado said. "Try to go pitch by pitch, drive in runs. Do what we got to do on the field. We didn't execute today."

The 35-year-old Freese was a surprise choice for leadoff hitter by Dave Roberts, and he made his manager look quite good when he started the game with a drive to right-center for his ninth career postseason homer.

Freese also connected in the first inning of the previous NLCS Game 6 in Milwaukee, helping the Cardinals win the pennant in 2011. It was just his fourth time in the leadoff spot in his 10 years in the majors.

But the Brewers put together a quick response that set the tone for the rest of the night. With runners on first and second in the bottom half of the first, Aguilar lined an opposite-field double into the corner in right.

Mike Moustakas followed with another RBI double and scored on Erik Kratz's single to make it 4-1. The Brewers managed just three runs in the previous two games in Los Angeles.

"It was huge to be able to answer back in the first inning after the homer," Moustakas said. "One would have been great, two would have been awesome. To put up four right there just gives us a lot of confidence."

Christian Yelich and Braun combined for another run with consecutive doubles in the second, and then it became a question of strategy for Roberts and Counsell with Game 7 on deck.

Roberts used starting pitcher Rich Hill in the eighth after Kenta Maeda struggled, staying away from key reliever Pedro Baez and closer Kenley Jansen. Counsell stayed with Knebel for five outs, giving him his first pro plate appearance with the bases loaded in the fifth — he struck out — and Burnes worked two perfect innings.

"There's the thought of trying to go to your 'pen in the first inning or the second inning, but there's a significant cost potentially for a potential Game 7," Roberts said. "So I just felt that we needed to get some more innings out of Hyun-Jin to keep our highest leverage guys available for a potential Game 7."

Dog Walkers Weekly "Furr-cast" | October 20, 2018

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/20/2018 - 05:48

Welcome back, everyone! For you first-time readers, happy to have you here!

This blog is dedicated to those dog lovers across central Ohio. Unless you have a large backyard, many of you probably walk your dog, or dogs, on a daily basis, and maybe even multiple times a day.

The purpose and goal of this blog is to help those dog walkers and their furry, little friends make the most out of their walks outside while being safe at the same time.

So, let's start things off with a look at what I call the "Comfort Scale."

You will notice on the images below there are certain colors that go with each time period/day of the week for the "Furr-cast." I developed this scale on my own, using several meteorological variables and some pet-friendly considerations.

You will see that the color "green" on the image above suggests that conditions are ideal for walking your pet and that there are no risks to either you or your pet, so walk all you want!

This brings me to the next level on the scale, which is a yellowish-orange color. This shows conditions are fair outside but you should still keep an eye on your pet. This is where the breed of your pet also comes into play. I'm not an expert on dogs but I know a Siberian Husky can withstand colder temperatures than a Chihuahua.

This now is up to the owner to decide if the conditions are fair enough that they could take more casual, longer walks outside.

Lastly, we have the last ranking on the scale, which shows outside conditions are poor and pet owners should keep their walks short. Dangerous weather is developing or already present and pet owners should take action to make sure that their pets are properly taken care of. This shouldn't be used to decide whether or not you should go outside; but more so an indicator that you should take shorter, more frequent walks.

Now that we have a look at the method behind the comfort scale, let's take a look at this weekends "Furr-cast."

It seems as if we skipped fall and went from summer to winter. Temperatures started out nearly 20 degrees above average in October and here we are just a couple weeks later and now we're consistently 5-10 degrees below average! Crazy, right? Well, it looks like this "November-like" weather is here to stay over the next week but it looks great for you dog walkers. This weekend and next week will actually be the nicest conditions we've had in quite some time, so get out and enjoy the cooler weather! Today will be breezy but pleasant out for your pets, with highs in the mid 50's. Showers will return later this afternoon, so keep the umbrella handy if you happen to take a longer walk today.

Now that we're talking about cooler weather, it's important to be aware of the dangers of cold weather on you and your pets. Sunday won't be crazy cold but with morning temperatures in the 30's and breezy winds in place, it'll feel like it's in the 20's through the morning. Daytime temperatures will only be in the 40's, so casual walks are appropriate.

Overall, next week supports some great weather for you and your furry friends. Daytime temperatures in the 50's and overnight lows in the 30's with mainly dry conditions. Now is a good time to get prepped for the upcoming winter season because before you know it, you and your pets will be walking in snow!

The "Barking Message" for next week:
  • Great weather over the next week, so get outside during the day and burn off some energy!
  • Morning temperatures over the next week get near the freezing mark at times, so keep your pets health & safety in mind.
  • Now is a good time to brush up on some cold weather safety tips for your pets!

Each Friday, I will be posting a new "Furr-cast" for the weekend and week ahead and I would like to feature some of your pets on my blog. Also, if you have any suggestions or comments on my blog, I'd love to hear input. Feel free to reach out to me on Twitter and Facebook at Ross10tv. Enjoy the weekend and week ahead, furr-parents.
