Teen mother gets surprising help from the cop who busted her for stealing food.

When young mother Sheena Davenport and her family were facing hard times, she decided to steal food from a store’s buffet so they could eat. Unfortunately, she and her boyfriend were caught and arrested. But when the 18-year-old mom went to court to plead guilty to fourth-degree theft, she got help from an unlikely source.

The Alabama teen says Officer Katrina Culbreath with the Dothan Police Department asked her why she resorted to stealing and she explained it was for her daughter, Skylar. Officer Culbreath had Davenport meet her outside after court and told her to follow her. They ended up at a grocery store.

Davenport, who had never been in trouble before, started crying when she realized this officer wanted to buy food for her family. She says Officer Culbreath bought her $130 worth of groceries. “There’s still good people out in the world and officers are still here to protect and serve,” Davenport says. “We are totally blessed by it.”

University of Southern California had Will Ferrell give this year's commencement speech and it's everything you would expect.

An Echo made specifically for the older generation.

  • Paris Jackson has posted a topless photo on Instagram.
  • She says nudity is beautiful and has no plans to apologize for it.
  • If you’re upset about it, she suggests you unfollow her. 

Paris Jackson is taking the Kardashian-esque route to fame by showing her body online. In case you missed it, Michael Jackson’s only daughter posted a topless photo on Instagram on Friday (even though you really don't see anything). 

The young Jackson is featured outside smoking a cigarette. It’s the caption – which speaks of embracing nudity as a beautiful thing that doesn’t have to have a sexual connotation – which breaks from the First Family of Reality. “Not only is your body a temple and should be worshipped as so, but also part of feminism is being able to express yourself in your own way," she writes. "Whether it’s being conservative and wearing lots of clothes or showing yourself, there’s different ways of absorbing Mother Earth’s energy.” 

The rumored new face of Calvin Klein ended her post with this – “If this makes some of you upset, I completely understand, and I encourage you to maybe no longer follow me…I cannot apologize for this any way. It is who I am and I refuse to shy away and keep my beliefs a secret. Every one as an opinion and everyone has their beliefs. We don't always agree with one another and that's okay. But again, we are all human, and to appreciate the things that other people do that make us human helps us feel connected.” 

The world is recovering from the largest "ransomware" attack in history

Hacking tools developed by the National Security Agency are believed to have been used to launch a worldwide cyberattack. International shipper FedEx, hospitals, railroads and police were disrupted by the attack Friday. Hundreds of thousands of computers in nearly 150 countries were infected with the "WannaCry" ransomware virus.

Once infected, computers get a pop-up message saying their files are encrypted and can only be unlocked if the user sends 300-dollars worth of bitcoin. Russia, Ukraine and Taiwan seem to be countries most affected by the virus – and with the work week resuming today, there are concerns about another round of infections. Microsoft issued a patch that addressed the vulnerability in March, but some computers may not have installed the patch. So if you haven’t yet – it’s suggested you do so immediately.

As for how it was stopped, an expert, known as "MalwareTech," halted the "WannaCry" ransomware virus Friday night by registering the code for the so-called “kill switch.” And for the moment, Britain's healthcare system and everyone else are slowly getting back online.

  • A White House official says President Trump ordered an emergency meeting after a worldwide cyber attack. Trump reportedly asked Homeland Security Advisor Tom Bossert to hold a meeting Friday to determine the threat of the ransomware virus. The senior security staff also held another meeting Saturday in the White House Situation Room. The FBI and the National Security Agency are trying to find the suspects responsible for the attack.
