After four boys were burned with spray sanitizers, 7-Eleven Manager Arrested
  • While the nation fights the coronavirus pandemic, the national hand sanitizer scarcity cautioned against individuals.
  • The New Jersey police state that the 7-Eleven owner of the shop did so, though. She now faces criminal charges.

Manisha Bharade, 47 years old, was arrested earlier this month after some children were repackaged with a spray bottle of home-made manual sanitizer sold.

According to the WOFL, Bharade had “four counts of endangering a child’s health and deceptive business activities.”

In the evening of 9 March, officers from River Vale Police went to the shop after they became conscious, according to a department’s Facebook post, of images shared on the social media that portrayed a young boy with chemical burns on his arm and leg.

A minimum of four people, one 11 and three 10 years old, were reportedly sprayed.

Police confirmed that Bharade had been “mixed with water and packed in aftermarket bottles to be sold at 7-Eleven with a commercially available foam sanitizer, which was not meant to resold,” WOFL said.

In the result, a total of 14 bottles of this drug are distributed to consumers, according to city police, according to the New York Post.

Would you think the owner of the shop will spend time in prison?

The authorities said that five bottles were delivered to the police and that nine bottles themselves remain missing.

The River Vale Police Department Lt. John DeVoe told a Facebook post that while further investigation is on – the-spot we want to make it known to the public that they will not buy this item if they bought it on the Vale River 7-Eleventh.

The statement said that the local, provincial and state authorities had been alerted to the question. “We know that the issue is currently confined to the River Vale shop,” the statement said.

The Public Relations Division at New Jersey is investigating whether in recent weeks the company has marketed and distributed pharmacy goods and other items.

More checks to identify anything in the bottles were recorded by WOFL.

According to WABC, one of the ten-year-old boys who sustained burns was diagnosed and discharged in a hospital whilst the other three boys were not serious enough to require hospitalization.

The Attorney General of New Jersey warned of the penalty of every store which exploits panicky customers.

“Let me be very specific. We will keep you accountable if you try to use our people during a health emergency,” Gurbir S. Grewal told CNN.

7-Eleven, Inc., shared its concern for the kid represented in the social media post and informed the public that local shops will “must comply” with regulation, which ensures that retailers who seek to make a fast buck by manipulating people will face criminal and civil repercussions.

“The health and well-being of 7-Eleven consumers is incredibly critical, and at this moment our hearts are with that young man,” he told CNN.

“They are aware of the seriousness and collaborate with local law enforcement agencies. DeVoe advised WABC officials not to presume a malicious purpose by Bharata. This is an issue that we are investigating internally and will take necessary action.

However, he cautioned parents to be alert to their children’s goods.

“To make sure we use only goods licensed and sold under a branded label, I think parents need to be vigilant,” he said. “We want to finish panic and make our own kind of sanitizers from substances that we don’t know what they contain. Then the risk arises. The threat. It is where the chemicals are combined are response adversely, which is actually what happens in this case.

Bill aims to help Missouri school districts with fees in mask lawsuits

ST. LOUIS – As 36 school districts in Missouri are being sued by the attorney governor for having mask mandates, a Senate bill was recently filed that would help districts with expenses if they win.

More than 70 parents have joined Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, claiming schools do not have the authority to enforce mask mandates. In a recent interview with Fox 2, Schmitt referred to the mandates as “Illegal masking of kids.”

In the St. Louis area, 20 school districts are being sued, including St. Louis Public Schools, Parkway, Francis Howell, Fort Zumalt, St. Charles, Clayton, Mehlville, Ladue, and more.

SB 992, sponsored by Sen. Doug Beck, D-St. Louis, states that if a school district wins the lawsuit, then Schmitt would have to pay for the school district’s attorney’s fees and other expenses they may incur.

“In a civil action brought by the Attorney General against a political subdivision, including school districts, the court shall award attorney’s fees, court costs, and all other expenses incurred by the political subdivision or school district in defense of any such action brought if the action is terminated in favor of the political subdivision or school district,” the bill summary states.

“Additionally, any award of attorney’s fees or other expenses incurred by the political subdivision or school district shall be paid by funds appropriated to the Attorney General by the General Assembly on an annual basis for the expenses relating to the operation, personal costs, and equipment of the Attorney General’s office, and shall not be paid from any other designated, statutory, or administrative fund.”

On Saturday, Beck posted to his Facebook page about his bill saying, “Are you tired of our Attorney General’s frivolous lawsuits against our schools, our teachers, and our kids? Shouldn’t the AG protect our citizens and not try to harm them? Senate Bill 992 will help our schools to fight back and keep our kids safe.”

Union Station’s last train

You may remember being on one of the last trains to leave Union Station. Train service stopped on October 31, 1978, at 11:38 pm. It ended the first chapter of Union Station’s history which started September 1, 1894, when the first train arrived. The station saw some of its highest traffic during the World’s Fair of 1904 and World War II. Today, you can see historic touches of the past in Union Station’s Grand Hall. There are several restored details and an attached hotel. It has also grown to include the St. Louis Aquarium, The Wheel, and popular attractions like The Polar Express.

Roller Skating

Roller Skating at Skate-a-Rama: Roller skating was a popular pastime in the 1970s and the skating rink was a hangout for many. Some may remember Skate-a-Rama in Fairview Heights. Roller skating still exists today but its popularity has decreased. There are some skating halls that are still around from the 1970s like Skate King in East St. Louis. Apparently, St. Nicholas Catholic Church on N 18th Street has hosted skating in its church hall since the 60s and you can still rent space today.

New logistics center will help abortion seekers get to Illinois

With abortion access increasingly restricted across much of the South and Midwest, two Illinois clinics near St. Louis on Friday announced a new logistics center to help abortion seekers get to their clinics.

Activists on both sides are convinced the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling is imperiled, with nearly two dozen states likely to impose sweeping bans if the conservative-led court overturns it.

Several states have already imposed new restrictions on abortions that have led women from those states to seek the procedure in states such as Illinois.

The new logistics center in Fairview Heights, Illinois, is jointly operated by Planned Parenthood’s abortion clinic in that city and the independent Hope Clinic for Women in Granite City, Illinois.
