Adding to mounting problems for the ride sharing titan, an Alabama man was arrested on two felony kidnapping charges after allegedly posing as an Uber driver and abducting young women.
“Tommy Wayne Beard, 62, targeted young women who became inebriated after spending time at bars in Tuscaloosa,” according to The Smoking Gun.
In March, Beard was arrested when police noticed a “suspicious vehicle” parked on the side of the road. Police questioned Beard, who was allegedly wearing “fully erect artificial male genitalia,” when they noticed a young woman passed out in his back seat. Beard told police that he was an Uber driver and was taking the young woman home.
Officers woke the woman, a University of Alabama student, who told them that she could not recall leaving the bar, but that her home was only a half-mile from the bar she left. Beard allegedly drove her seven miles from the bar, and was stopped by police only a quarter mile from his residence.
When police arrested Beard, they confiscated his phone which allegedly contained lewd photos of another young woman in the back seat of his car, and helped them “identify two additional female victims,” one of whom was found walking in the woods alone last year, unable to recall how she’d gotten there.
Uber is reeling from the recent death of a passenger who entered the vehicle of a fake driver in South Carolina, and was later murdered. The company is attempting to implement new safety standards that will ensure riders enter the correct vehicle.

Will Italy Exit the EU Because of its Lackluster Response to the Wuhan Flu?
Affar Italiani reports that leader of the Italian political party League and former Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini recently announced a possible withdrawal of Italy from the European Union due to its sluggish response to the Wuhan Virus.
“This is crazy. Europe needs another fifteen days to decide what to do, whether to help, whom and how. In the midst of an emergency when people die, now from pneumonia, tomorrow, possibly from poverty,” the politician stated
Salvini cited Italy’s confrontation with the EU over aid to fight against the Wuhan virus and the refusal of Germany and other Northern European countries to help Italy as reasons for the southern European country leaving the EU and the eurozone.
“This is a den of snakes and jackals. First we defeat the virus, then remember Europe. And, if necessary, we say goodbye. Without even thanking,” the former Minister of Internal Affairs asserted.
The EU used to serve a purpose as a common market for European members states and a cohesive political unit the prevented fratricidal wars between European states.
It could also serve as a civilizational defense bloc against the potential hordes of African and Islamic migrants that will continue coming into the region thanks to its lax border policies and the demographic realities in these regions — booming populations which many of these Third World countries cannot accommodate.
Salvini has every reason to be concerned.
If the EU cannot fulfill the most basic of government functions — protecting its members — Italy should leave and craft its own strategic regional bloc with countries that are serious about protecting their national sovereignty.
