Anthony Borges Is Back In the ICU, A Day After His Family Said They Will Sue School and Police

Anthony Borges, the 15-year-old Parkland hero who risked his life to save the lives of classmates, has taken a “turn for the worse.” Those are the words that Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School coach Marilyn Rule tweeted yesterday about the teenager who was shot five times on Feb. 14 at his school, which left 17 dead and more injured. He had been recovering positively, but Rule tweeted that he was in the ICU and on a ventilator after having emergency surgery. A Miami ABC news affiliate also reports that doctors have placed Borges in a medically-induced coma.

After weeks of trying to recover from the shooting, Anthony Borges was rushed to emergency surgery.

This latest update on the student comes a day after a lawyer for the family announced that they would be suing the school district, the sheriff’s department, and the school principal for failing to protect the teen from the mass shooting.

“The failure of Broward County Public Schools, and of the principal and school resource officer to adequately protect students, and in particular our client, from life-threatening harm, were unreasonable, callous and negligent,” lawyer Alex Arreaza wrote in a letter, according to ABC News.

The letter goes on to say: “Due to his condition, Borges is currently unable to walk and has a great deal of difficulty performing rudimentary tasks for himself, requiring assistance constantly.”

His family has increased their GoFundme goal to $1 million after having raised more than $600,000 dollars.

Not only will this money help his hospital bills but will also now pay for their legal representation.

While Borges remains hospitalized, his story has reached millions worldwide.

As a fan of the Barcelona soccer team, Borges always wanted to travel to Spain to meet them. Now the team is helping that dream come true by inviting him to Spain to see them play. And they also signed a jersey made especially for him.

We hope Borges will soon recover so he can meet all of the people who’s life he’s touched.

Thirteen Years After Her Daughter’s Murder, Casey Anthony Is Producing A Documentary To ‘Clear Her Name’

Thirteen Years After Her Daughter’s Murder, Casey Anthony Is Producing A Documentary To ‘Clear Her Name’

Updated Feb. 8, 2021.

In 2008, the death of Caylee Anthony gripped headlines across the United States after her mother Casey Anthony was charged with first-degree murder. The case attracted a significant amount of news attention and quickly became a media circus. Forty million people watched testimony in the case which became the main topic of talk shows across the country.

Now, thirteen years after her daughter’s death, Casey Anthony is back to making headlines. After enduring so much legal trouble, Anthony is thrusting herself back into the legal field again, this time for business.

Casey Anthony is raising eyebrows once again after filing paperwork to open a private investigation company in South Florida.

Anthony filed documents listing herself as a registered agent of Case Research & Consulting Services, LLC last December. Her business, according to People, was registered to a home in West Palm Beach owned by Patrick McKenna. During the time of her trial, McKenna worked as Anthony’s lead investigator.

According to state records, Anthony does not have a Florida private investigator’s license. As a convicted felon she will not be able to obtain a license.

Casey Anthony is also now pushing to become a movie producer.

 According to TMZ Anthony and co-producers, Tamra Simmons and Ebony Porter-Ike are setting out to produce a movie about her daughter’s murder in an effort to clear her name.

TMZ says that the producers behind the documentary say Anthony is “finally ready to clear her name, bring justice to her daughter, and begin the process of establishing her daughter’s legacy in a different light.”

“She knows what it’s like to be accused of something that she didn’t do,” a source told People. “She wants to help other wrongfully accused people, especially women, and help them get justice.” The source noted that Anthony has yet to obtain clients. “It’s in the very early stages,” explained the source. “She has big plans for her future, and hopes that it will change how people see her.”

In 2008, Anthony was charged with first-degree murder for the disappearance of her daughter Caylee.

Anthony’s case became notorious after it came out that she had not reported her daughter missing until 31 days after she disappeared. A massive search went underway for the toddler who was almost three. The search ended when her body was found in a wooded lot near Anthony’s family home.

On July 5, 2011, a jury found Casey not guilty of first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse, and aggravated manslaughter of a child. They did, however, find her guilty of four misdemeanor counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer.

After she was acquitted, a Department of Corrections spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger described Casey as “the court made a pretty strong statement that she was one of the most hated women in America.”

Video Surfaces of QAnon Congresswoman Harassing Parkland Shooting Survivor David Hogg

Video Surfaces of QAnon Congresswoman Harassing Parkland Shooting Survivor David Hogg

As you may be aware, a woman named Marjorie Taylor Greene was just elected as Congresswoman of Georgia’s 6th congressional district.

Greene holds extreme and debunked beliefs that have convinced many that she is unfit for office, including considering QAnon conspiracies “worth listening to”, believing California wildfires are being started by space lasers and perpetuating the dangerous lie that certain school shootings are hoaxes.

Recently, an unsettling video surfaced of Greene following and harassing Parkland shooting survivor and gun control activist, David Hogg.

In the video, which she posted to her YouTube page, Greene (who was not an elected official at this point), follows Hogg around with a camera and a microphone, grilling him on his gun-control stance just weeks after he lived through the Parkland shooting that killed 14 of his classmates.

“David, why are you supporting the red-flag laws?” she asks Hogg. “If Scot Peterson, the resource officer at Parkland, had done his job, then Nikolas Cruz wouldn’t have killed anybody in your high school, or at least protected them.”

She continues as David Hogg continues to walk on, ignoring her. “Why are you supporting red-flag gun laws that attack our Second Amendment right and why are you using kids as a barrier?” she asks. “Do you not know how to defend your stance?”

As Hogg walks away from her, Greene turns and addresses the camera. “He’s got nothing to say,” she says. “Sad.”

“He has nothing to say because there really isn’t anything to say, you guys. He has nothing to say because he’s paid to do this.”

She then goes on to accuse Hogg of being bankrolled by liberal donors and lament the state of her funding and political connections.

“I have nothing,” she says. “And this guy [David Hogg], with his George Soros funding, and his major liberal funding, has got everything.”

Greene then goes on to attack Hogg’s bravery–literal months after he survived a school shooting. “And he’s a coward. He can’t say one word because he can’t defend his stance.”

The Hogg video isn’t the only controversy Greene has been embroiled in. Recently, CNN uncovered some disturbing comments Greene had previously made on her Facebook page about the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.

Greene agreed with a Facebook user who accused the Stoneman Douglas resource officer of being “paid off” to “keep his mouth shut” about the “false flag planned shooting” at the school. To which Greene responded: “Exactly”

To make matters worse, since Greene has been appointed to the House Education and Labor Committee.

Needless to say, people aren’t too happy about a school-shooting conspiracy theorist having the power to make decisions about our children’s education.

Recently, David Hogg himself made his thoughts known about Rep. Greene being appointed to the Education and Labor Committee. “I think it’s absolutely horrific,” he told CNN.

“I think it’s disgusting. [Republicans] need to come out and say ‘I call on Leader McCarthy to come out and condemn the actions of Marjorie Taylor Greene.’ And prove that you’re actually able to put politics aside and work towards unity. Because if there’s anything we should be able to unify around, it’s that our children should not be dying in our schools.
