Sentencing of NYC bomber, Perinton Couple Missing, and Mental Health Awareness

By Terrence Dickey @Detron_J

A man was sentenced on Tuesday to multiple terms of life in prison after bombings in New York and New Jersey.

Ahmad Khan Rahimi, a naturalized U.S. citizen, injured 30 people with a bomb in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood in September 2016.

The second bomb did not go off, but a small pipe bomb detonated during the Marine Corps road race in Seaside Heights, New Jersey with no reported injuries.

Tuesday marks exactly two weeks since a Perinton couple has gone missing.

Robert and Mary Ross, were last seen at Strong Memorial Hospital on January 30 where Robert was receiving treatment for brain cancer.

Searches have been conducted by the last pinged area of their phone in Charlotte and even the Genesee River. The investigation is still being conducted.

The first mental health public awareness license plates have become available in New York State.

This is one of the steps New York State has taken to help fight the stereotypes and stigmas concerning mental illness.

Advocates in support of the new license plates say that initiatives like this will make a huge difference.
