Lawmakers in Georgia, Kentucky, and Texas have proposed legislation to ban doctors from prescribing puberty blockers and other hormone drugs for children.

Georgia State Rep. Ginny Ehrhart is drafting a bill that would block medical providers from facilitating a medical "transition" for minors by prescribing puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones.

The lawmakers acted out of a sense of concern for children after a Texas mother brainwashed her 3-year-old son to believe he was a girl.

The child, now 7, attended school as a boy for the first time in his young life this week. His mother, a pediatrician, convinced the youngster that he was a girl because he played with a girl's toy in a McDonald's happy meal when he was 3.

The boy's father asked a judge to grant him full custody of the boy, but a Texas jury awarded primary custody to the mother and allowed her to continue transitioning the boy into a girl.

In response to the overwhelming public backlash, the presiding judge overturned the jury's decision.

"We're talking about children that can't get a tattoo or smoke a cigar or a cigarette in the state of Georgia, but can be castrated and get sterilized," Ehrhart told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

In 2018, Ehrhart defeated Democrat Jen Slipakoff, who is raising her son as "transgender" because at 2 years old he showed an interest in pink pajamas and cupcakes.

People who "transition" their minor children to the opposite sex tend to be white women who suffer from Munchausen by proxy syndrome.

Munchausen by proxy syndrome is a mental condition in which a parent or caregiver fakes or causes illness in children for attention from healthcare workers and the news media.

Douglas County Sheriff's Office

A Colorado woman who sought donations to fulfill her terminally ill daughter's "bucket list" was arrested and charged with the girl's murder.

Kelly Renee Turner, 41, organized ride-alongs with police and fire crews for 7-year-old Olivia Gant, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation paid $11,000 for a "bat princess" costume party for Olivia.

Turner publicized her daughter's terminal illness and promoted the girl's "bucket list" of dreams to fulfill before she died.

When Olivia died in 2017, her cause of death was listed as a variety of ailments including an intestinal disorder, brain seizures, and a buildup of fluid deep in the brain.

But when Olivia's body was exhumed last year, a coroner did not find physical evidence of those disorders. Her cause of death was listed as undetermined.

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office arrested Turner at a Denver-area hotel on Friday. She is being held without bond.

Police say Olivia was in and out of hospitals for most of her 7 years. In the months before she died she received nutrition through a feeding tube.

She was admitted in July 2017 to Children's Hospital Colorado, where doctors said she showed signs of malnutrition.

One doctor told investigators Turner insisted that he sign a "do not resuscitate" (DNR) order for her daughter.

The doctor said Turner wanted to withdraw all medical care and give Olivia nutrition intravenously (via IV) rather than through a feeding tube in her stomach.

Doctors told Turner Olivia wouldn't survive on IV nutrition, and Turner was given the option of taking her home on hospice care. Olivia died at home a few weeks later.

Doctor's suspicions grew when Turner brought another daughter to the hospital and claimed she had "bone pain."

Turner brought up Munchausen syndrome by proxy in an interview with investigators last year.

Munchausen syndrome by proxy is a psychological condition in which a parent or caregiver exaggerates or causes medical illnesses in children for attention from healthcare workers.

"That has never been my case, like at all, whatsoever," Turner said in the interview.

Turner is also accused of fraudulently obtaining about $539,000 worth of medical care for her two daughters from the government-funded Medicaid program.

Last week, a Dallas woman was sentenced to six years in prison for subjecting her 10-year-old son to hundreds of procedures and 13 major surgeries in another case of Munchausen by proxy.

A Louisiana man was shot dead by an East Feliciana Parish deputy who responded to a burglary call at a Texaco gas station early Monday.

The family of Christopher Whitfield, 31, say he had a history of mental illness and he fled from the cops because he had previous trouble with the law.

The store's owner, Danny Williams, said Whitfield broke into a cooler and stole a box of raw chicken before fleeing the store.

East Feliciana Parish Sheriff's Chief Deputy Greg Phares confirmed the deputy encountered Whitfield behind the gas station and shot him, according to The Advocate.

Whitfield had a previous arrest in 2010 for breaking into the same store.

Phares declined to say if Whitfield was armed with a weapon.

Myrtle Jackson described her grandson as a nice person who didn't carry guns.

"I don't think he should have been shot," she said.

Whitfield's death is the latest fatal shooting of an unarmed Black person by white police officers.

Atatiana Jefferson, 28, of Fort Worth, Texas, was shot and killed by a cop when she looked out her bedroom window after hearing a prowler in her back yard early Saturday.

The cop, 34-year-old Aaron Dean, was arrested and charged with murder hours after he tendered his resignation. He was also dishonorably discharged from the police force.

Opening statements began Tuesday in the high-profile murder case of Ezra McCandless in a Wisconsin courtroom.

A defense attorney portrayed his client as the victim during his detailed opening statement. McCandless, 21, is accused of stabbing her boyfriend, Alexander Woodworth, 16 times.

McCandless and Woodworth, 24, were in his truck that got stuck in the mud on a dirt road in rural Dunn County, Wisconsin on March 22, 2018.

According to a criminal complaint, McCandless claimed she crawled into the back seat when Woodworth attempted to rape her. She said she grabbed a knife to defend herself and started stabbing "anywhere and everywhere."

She said Woodworth didn't stop even after she stabbed him multiple times. Police say she spent time mutilating his penis.

After McCandless stabbed Woodworth to death, she carved the word "boy" in her own forearm and slashed her clothes.

In her opening statement, the prosecutor described McCandless as a cold-blooded killer who committed premeditated murder. She reportedly took her father's EMT knife with her.

McCandless, who was born a biological female, experimented with her gender identity in high school. She changed her name multiple times, finally settling on the boyish name "Ezra". On that basis, the media insists on calling McCandless "transgender".

But friends say McCandless has always dressed in feminine clothing and never appeared as a male to them. They describe her as "mentally ill" and "weird".

The jury will hear from a former boyfriend who said McCandless followed him as he drove 150 miles to a friend's house. He found her sleeping in her car in his friend's driveway the next morning.

McCandless reportedly had three boyfriends at the time of Woodworth's death.

She pleaded not guilty of first-degree intentional homicide by reason of mental illness. She was later found competent to stand trial. She is being held on $250,000 bail in the Dunn County jail.

McCandless faces life in prison if convicted.

Handout: Katie Alwood

The mother of a 9-year-old boy charged with starting a fire that killed 5 family members says he made a mistake, but he has a good heart.

28-year-old Katie Alwood told CBS News her son, Kyle Alwood, is not a monster.

"Everyone is looking at him like he's some kind of monster, but that's not who he is."

Alwood said her dead family members would want Kyle "to get the help he needs."

"People make mistakes, and that's what this is. Yes, it was a horrible tragedy, but it's still not something to throw his life away over."

Police say Kyle set fire to the family's mobile home while everyone was asleep on April 6. Alwood and Kyle were the only ones who managed to escape the blaze.

"I stood at the window and I told my kids I was sorry I couldn't save them. Mommy was right there, and I loved them. At least hopefully they heard that," she said.

"I don't know what's worse. Hearing them scream or hearing them stop."

Among the dead are Alwood's children, 2-year-old Daemon Wall and 1-year-old Ariel Wall; her niece, 2-year-old Rose Wall; her 69-year-old grandmother, Kathryn Murray; and her fiancé, 34-year-old Jason Wall.

The NY Daily News reports Kyle was arrested on Tuesday and charged with five counts of first-degree murder, two counts of arson and one count of aggravated arson.

Alwood says Kyle, who was recently diagnosed with a form of schizophrenia, ADHD, and bipolar disorder, "has a good heart."

She added that he helped her around the house and took care of the younger kids.

"He helped feed his brother and sister, helped teach them how to walk," she told The Chicago Tribune. "Yes, he should be punished, but he needs mental help, that's what he needs."

ALwood gave permission to media outlets to publish Kyle's photo and name.

Did Kanye West or his management fake West's "mental breakdown" in order to avoid a breach of contract lawsuit?

This theory is plausible because West's suspicious hospital admission for an emergency psychiatric evaluation on Monday comes on the heels of the cancelation of his popular Saint Pablo Tour the same day. The coincidence is too great to ignore.
