Washington Square Park squatting strips of “Jesus” for a naked rain shower

Maybe it was his baptism.

The homeless man who calls himself the “Son of God Lord Savior Jesus Christ,” and who has settled in the Washington Square Park Fountain, naked for a refreshing shower in the rain on Saturday.

As park attendants gasped, city officials looked away again.

Police and City Park Department workers have kept their distance throughout the week from Matthew Mishefski and his new home within the Greenwich Village landmark.

But the nonintervention approach seems to have emboldened Mishefski’s philosophy.

The shower scene occurred when protesters gathered at a Black Lives Matter rally beyond the fountain.

Then he ate an apple and put on a sarong, remaining shirtless.

He then walked over the edge of the fountain, but didn’t turn around because a Black Lives Matter organizer prevented him from passing the stage.

Mishefski has continued to squat despite visits by numerous New York police officers, Park Department employees and homeless outreach coordinators who have done little for his presence, The Post reported.

“Bulls-t,” Mishefski said when asked what support homeless services workers offered him.

The 25-year-old from the Wyoming Valley in Pennsylvania says he is autistic and has spent time in psychology wards.

He has been squatting in the drained fountain since May, in a makeshift house that now includes a table, six chairs, a pink recliner, a clothes box, and a beach umbrella.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson tells the country to “go back to work”

Get back to work, and that’s an order, according to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Johnson wants employers to tell their subordinates to return to the office next week whenever it is safe to do so, the Daily Mail reported Saturday. It is all to get Britain’s devastated economy, which shrunk by 25% during March and April, back to work.

Officials must lead by getting off their couches and returning to their desks at work, Johnson said. He also intentionally asked companies like Goldman Sachs to encourage employees to return to the office.

“I want people to go back to work as carefully as possible,” Johnson said in a question-and-answer session with members of the public.

“It is very important that people go back to work if they can, now. I think everyone has taken the ‘stay home if you can’ (advice). I think we should now say ‘go back to work if you can.’

British Finance Minister Rishi Sunak said on Wednesday that the government would pay bonuses to employers returning to work to temporarily laid off staff.

California to Release 8,000 Prisoners to Stop the Spread of COVID-19

California will release 8,000 prisoners in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19 within state fences.

“These actions are taken to ensure the health and safety of the incarcerated population and staff,” Ralph Diaz, secretary of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, told Reuters.

Only prisoners with less than one year remaining on their sentences will be eligible to be released. Those with a violent history or convictions for sexual offenses will be excluded from the program.

As the United States continues to face tens of thousands of new cases daily, prisons have been particularly affected. In California’s 35 state jails, nearly 2,400 people tested positive for the virus.

Across the country, states have been releasing nonviolent criminals for similar security concerns, including Michael Cohen. The former dishonored attorney for President Trump was later ordered to return to the clink after he was arrested for dinner with his wife at a posh Upper East Side restaurant last week.

An Australian teenager is dead after being bitten by a shark in the country’s 10th attack by maneaters this year.

Mani Hart-Deville’s legs were mutilated by what authorities believe was a great white shark. As the creature made multiple passes to the 17-year-old, his beachmates tried to defend themselves, according to news.com.au.

Hart-Deville was treated on the beach but died on the spot, Reuters reported. The beach was closed.

“What happened there this afternoon would shock everyone,” Jim Simmons, the mayor of nearby Clarence Valley, said in a statement, reported by The Guardian. “It is terribly shocking. All our condolences, from people in the area, go to the boy’s family.”

The attack occurred on Wooli Beach, on the country’s east coast, near Coffs Harbor, approximately 240 miles south of Brisbane.
