The Charlotte Observer wrote:They cuffed people and wrote police reports - but they weren't real cops, Michigan police say

A squad of fake police officers allegedly responded to calls, kept incident logs, and even detained people under the nose of the real police force — and had been doing it for years, WNEM reported.

"They responded to some 911 calls where they were actually the first alleged police officers on scene, and real police when they showed up asked them to assist, asked them to submit reports," Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton told the station.

Police say the group, which calls itself the Genesee County Fire and EMS Media-Genesee County Task Force Blight Agency, has been impersonating officers since 2015, according to the Flint Journal.

"We think at least one of them was armed, we think they all had badges, they all had some type of credentials," Leyton told WJRT.

The fake officers worked every day of the week, dressed like police, carried cuffs, wrote reports, and had a chief and deputy chief, Genesee County Park Ranger Chief Kevin Shanlian told WNEM.

NYC Has Its Own Ant, the “ManhattAnt”

A new ant species joins a menagerie of other creatures cut off from their kind in isolated patches of urban green in NYC

Biologists stumbled upon a new species of ant in the Broadway medians at 63rd and 76th streets, the New York Post reports. The ant looks like it hails from Europe, but so far the scientists have not been able to match it with any of the approximately 13,000 species of known ant. “It’s new to North America, and we believe it’s new to the entire world,” biologist Rob Dunn, whose team discovered the insect, told the Post. The ant doesn’t have a scientific name yet, but it’s fondly nicknamed the “ManhattAnt.”

New York already has its own unique centipede, sweet bee and white-footed mouse with small ears.

Schools required to teach and display ‘In God We Trust’

All public schools in Louisiana are required by law to offer programs of instruction on the motto “In God we trust,” as well as to display the motto somewhere on campus.

The bill was approved unanimously by the state House and Senate and faced no debate on either floor or in committee. Now, every public school building must display “In God we trust.”

“It’s already on the wall in our board room,” said Superintendent Philip Martin. “It’s on our national currency. I think it reinforces American values. It’s now the law in Louisiana that you have to, and we plan to comply with the law.”

State Sen. Regina Barrow, D-Baton Rouge, the bill’s author, said it’s important for students to understand the patriotic history and founding of the country through lessons about the nation’s customs. The senator said it isn’t pushing God on anybody. Instead, she said, it is incorporating the motto as part of the history of the U.S.

The course of instruction must occur before the fifth grade, according to the law. Fourth-grade history curricula include the period from European exploration of the Americas through the building of the transcontinental railroad. The course of instruction on the motto will likely go in tandem with studying the founding of the nation.

“Obviously I think we’re ahead of this curve because it’s already displayed prominently in our board meeting room,” said Martin. “I don’t think we’ll have any negative results from this.”

The Terrebonne superintendent said only positives will come from the law and that it reinforces positive ideals.
