I don’t have enough energy to even make a headline (KICs)

Does anyone still have the desire to pass? Can I borrow it? As someone who is only halfway done with all the AP exams they have, I can honestly say that May 27 cannot come fast enough. While you weigh the pros and cons of dropping out, check out these KICs. This week we have Russian soccer clubs getting canceled, the Supreme Court having the potential to change Georgia heartbeat law, a burglary at Wilshire Pavilion, and the disappearance of an Alabama officer and inmate.

May 2 – Russian clubs and games canceled 

In February Russia’s women’s national team will no longer compete at the European championships for the 2023 World Cup. The men’s league is not allowed to go to the 2022-2023 nations leagues. 

The ban states that all of the men’s and women’s champions leagues, Europa leagues, and Europa conference league Russian teams are no longer allowed to compete against others during the 2022-2023 campaigns. 

United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson stated Russia’s ineligibility. None of Russia’s teams are qualified to continue on with the League games in the following two years because of the war happening between Russia and Ukraine. 

May 3 – Supreme Court Rule could change Georgia’s Heartbeat Law 

The U.S. Supreme Court’s potential ruling on the Roe v. Wade case can potentially have a direct impact on Georgia’s heartbeat abortion law. Georgia’s abortion law is currently on a federal appeal, but that could change if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade.

A draft version of the Supreme Court ruling was leaked to Politico regarding a Mississippi abortion law. Chief Justice John Roberts confirmed it in a statement he released on Tuesday. Georgia’s law was overturned by a federal judge, but the state appealed that decision to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. The 11th Circuit said that it wanted to wait to rule on Georgia’s law until after the Supreme Courts’ decision on the Mississippi law.

If the Supreme Court rules to overturn Roe v. Wade, then there is a good chance the 11th Circuit would reinstate the Georgia law, which would ban abortions after six weeks. Governor Brian Kemp signed the heartbeat law in 2019, though a lower court deemed it unconstitutional.

May 4 – One man needed, another arrested after a Wilshire Pavilion liquor store burglary

After a burglary at Peachtree Bottle Shop at Wilshire Pavilion one man is in jail and another is still being sought. Chris Hyatt, Peachtree City Police Department spokesman, said officers responded to an alarm call at the Bottle Shop at 5:08 a.m. 

The Peachtree City Police Department found the front glass doors shattered, and up to $1,500 in alcohol was reported stolen. The man arrested and charged with the burglary is Aquarious Woodruff, 34, of Atlanta and also a 21-year-old Atlanta resident Zabion Battle on a warrant. 

This is the fourth burglary in Peachtree City so far this year. A current investigation is going for this break in and many other liquor store burglaries in the region. 

May 5 – Alabama inmate and correctional officer disappear 

Authorities in Alabama are searching for a missing inmate and corrections officer. Vicky White, the corrections officer, and Casey White, the inmate, went missing from the county jail after claiming she was taking the inmate to the county courthouse. Neither are related, but authorities believe they may have had a romantic relationship. 

The National Guard is offering $10,000 for any information on the whereabouts of the inmate, and $5,000 for the officer. A warrant for Vicky’s arrest was issued on charges of permitting or facilitating escape of the first degree. Vicky claimed she was taking Casey for a mental health evaluation when she checked him out of the jail. 

In the days following their disappearance, investigators have determined that they have known each other since 2020 and may have developed a special relationship. They met after Casey was sentenced for a 2015 murder. Investigators have also discovered that the escape was planned, and that Vicky had sold her house before the escape. Her patrol car was found abandoned in a parking lot. Authorities are considering the duo armed.
