Charleston Shooter’s Sister Wants You To Pay For Her Honeymoon After Her Brother’s Murderous Rampage Overshadowed Her Dream Wedding

It’s all about perspective, ya know?

While most people are aware that the worst thing Dylann Roof did with his life was murder nine innocent people in cold blood, his sister Amber thinks he committed an even worse atrocity…

He made her cancel her dream wedding!

You see, Dylann’s Charleston Church shooting took place just four days before his 27-year-old sister was set to wed her now-husband Michael Tyo, but because of the media storm, she decided it would be safest to just forgo the whole event.

Well, Amber was just so heartbroken that she had to cancel her big day, she thought it’d be a great idea to set up a GoFundMe page to get other people to pay for her honeymoon.

The page managed to raise $1,600 before it was taken down and in Amber’s defense, she was going to donate 10% of the money to the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, but still… we think there are some people in her neighborhood who could have used the money just a little bit more than she.

Having to cancel your wedding because of your brother’s psychopathic tendencies/murders does kind of stink, but so does, ya know, dying.

Go fund yourself, Amber.

Cardinals fire scouting director Correa amid hacking scandal (Yahoo Sports)

The doors of the St. Louis Cardinals clubhouse are closed before a scheduled baseball game against the Minnesota Twins, Tuesday, June 16, 2015, in St. Louis. Major League Baseball says it is cooperating with a federal investigation into an illegal breach of the Astros' internal operations database, amid a report that the Cardinals were responsible for the hack. The New York Times, citing unnamed law enforcement officials, reported Tuesday, June 16, 2015 , that the FBI and Justice Department are investigating whether Cardinals' front-office officials are responsible for the effort to steal information about player personnel.

The St. Louis Cardinals said Thursday they have fired scouting director Chris Correa, the first known fallout from the hacking scandal that has resulted in a federal investigation into whether the team illegally got inside the player personnel database of the Houston Astros. The Cardinals declined to say why Correa was fired but confirmed he’d been let go a day earlier after a team-imposed leave of absence. ”At this time, it’s still an ongoing investigation and there’s really nothing more I can add at this point,” general manager John Mozeliak said before a game against San Diego.


Dwyane Wade Re-Signs with Heat: Latest Contract Details, Comments and Reaction

The long and fruitful marriage between Dwyane Wade and Miami Heat will continue, as the two sides have agreed to a new deal. 

Wade announced on Instagram he will be returning to the Heat:

Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reported the deal is worth $20 million for one year. 

Wade has been the face of Miami basketball, even during the LeBron James years, since he was the fifth overall draft pick by the team in 2003. 

There were times this summer when Wade and the Heat seemed like they could be headed for a divorce. 

A person familiar with the negotiations told the Associated Press (via Fox Sports) in May that Wade was “trying to figure things out.”

Yet all anyone had to do was go back to what Wade posted on Instagram when he signed an extension with the Heat last summer to know how he felt about the city and franchise:

Wade isn’t the unstoppable force he used to be, but the 33-year-old is still one of the best players in the NBA. He averaged 21.5 points and 4.8 assists per game last season and shot 47 percent from the field. 

The risk for Miami is Wade’s health. He appeared in 62 games last year after playing 54 the previous year. 

The Heat will have to overcome his inevitable absences next season, which will be a challenge. However, when the 11-time All-Star is on the court, Miami will be a dangerous team.

Volvo child seat concept puts kids’ safety up front

Volvo's Excellence Child Seat Concept puts the baby face-to-face with the rear passenger

Back in April, Volvo showed off its Lounge Console at the Shanghai International Auto Show. The concept replaced the usually-unoccupied front passenger seat of a chauffeur-driven vehicle with a multi-purpose luxury footrest for use by the rear-seat passenger. Building on that idea, the Swedish automaker has now unveiled the Excellence Child Seat Concept, which replaces the front seat with a baby.
