An Australian anti-vaxxer mom said she was giving trick-or-treaters chicken-pox tainted lollipops for Halloween, claiming the candies would help give kids the infection that her son has so they can get the chicken pox over with and be immune for life.

A man dressed in a Jesus Halloween costume allegedly punched a San Diego police officer. The officer suffered a two-inch cut to his eye and was taken to the hospital for further evaluation. Jesus is still on the loose. I’m just glad to see that someone remembered the reason for the season and was keeping Christ in Halloween.
A California couple planned to having a home birth, but they ran into a little problem… they were displaced by the wildfires. So they moved into a hotel and took their midwife with them.
