Abandoned Baby’s Mom Found at Starbucks
Woman pushed stroller onto platform, got back on NYC subway, say witnesses
By Rob Quinn, Newser Staff
A 20-year-old mother who allegedly abandoned her baby girl at one of New York City’s busiest subway stations is in custody, says the NYPD. NBC New York reports that police were given the heads up by a citizen who saw the woman at a Starbucks around 12:30am today—roughly 12 hours after witnesses say she pushed the 6- or 7-month-old in her red and white stroller off the train onto the platform at Columbus Circle, then hopped back on the train alone before the doors closed.
A woman who saw the unattended baby in her stroller waited for 20 minutes for somebody to return and then alerted authorities, the New York Daily News reports.

Nationwide Safe Haven Laws:
Now nationwide, all 50 states have safe haven laws, with Alaska and Nebraska enacting their own safe haven laws in 2008. You should look at your own state’s Safe Haven Law for more details, as they do vary from state to state.
Safe Haven Law Basics:
In general, Safe Haven Laws allow a parent to anonymously leave an unwanted newborn baby in a safe place, such as a hospital, emergency medical services, police station, or fire station, and not have to worry about getting in trouble. The baby will then be given to the state’s child welfare department.
9 in 10 Messages NSA Spies on Aren’t From Targets
Agency is casting much wider net, Snowden messages show
By Polly Davis Doig, Newser Staff
Newser) – Still living in the dream world where the NSA only monitors foreign nationals located outside our fair borders? The Washington Post, armed with a four-month investigation and a vast trove of 160,000 intercepted messages courtesy of Edward Snowden, reveals that the spy agency in fact casts a much wider net. In fact, nine out of 10 of those messages came from non-targeted regular people who may have engaged in such risky behavior as sending an email in a foreign language, chatting with someone located outside the US, or, heaven help us, using a non-US proxy to live stream, say, World Cup or BBC coverage.
In all, some 900,000 people could have been spied on, the report estimates.
