Officer who rammed car into armed man details encounter

Michael Rapiejko and Michael RapiejkoTUCSON, Ariz. — The Arizona police officer who stopped an armed suspect by

running him over told

investigators he felt it was his only option.

The dramatic encounter in the Tucson suburb of

Marana in February

gained worldwide attention this week after dash-cam

video showing the officer ramming into the suspect was released.

Prosecutors have cleared

Officer Michael Rapiejko of wrongdoing.

In a recorded interview

released to The Associated

Press on Friday, Rapiejko

is heard explaining his

thought process and

why he chose to run over

36-year-old Mario Valencia

instead of shooting him.

Rapiejko said he was

too far to shoot his

handgun accurately and

that shooting it would have

posed a risk to other officers

and bystanders.

Rapiejko is back on the force,

and the Marana

Police Department has

stood by him.

Martin O'MalleyWashington (CNN)

"I'm glad Secretary Clinton's come around to the right positions on these issues," O'Malley said at a forum at Harvard's Institute of Politics.

ESPN Suspends Reporter Over Rant Recorded By Towing Company

Britt McHenryA string of insults aimed at a woman who works at a towing company were recorded by a surveillance camera.

Now they've come back to sting sports reporter Britt McHenry.

After the video emerged of McHenry, 28, dishing out profane verbal abuse, ESPN announced she'll be punished.

"Britt McHenry has been suspended for one week effectively immediately," the media company said.

Video of the encounter, which reportedly took place earlier this month, spread quickly after it was published Thursday on LiveLeak. In it, McHenry, who is based in Washington, D.C., vents her anger about her towed car at the counter clerk, who points out the surveillance camera.

In the footage, McHenry says, among other things: "I'm in the news sweetheart. I will ******* sue this place." "That's why I have a degree and you don't." "I wouldn't work at a scumbag place like this. Makes my skin crawl even being here."

Qaeda takes key Yemen army camp, heavy weapons: official

How does a military let their tanks be taken?Aden (AFP) - Al-Qaeda militants in southeast Yemen on Friday seized heavy weapons as they overran a key camp in Hadramawt provincial capital Mukalla, consolidating their grip on the city, an official said. "Today Al-Qaeda fighters took control of the 27th Mechanised Brigade's camp and seized heavy weapons including tanks and artillery,"

the official told AFP, confirming that Al-Qaeda now controlled all of Mukalla a day after seizing its airport. Residents of the city confirmed the camp had been seized "without resistance".

Until Friday, the camp in eastern Mukalla had remained loyal to President Abedrabbo Mansour al-Hadi and was the only military site not taken over by Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).

E-cigarette use triples among US teenagers

E-cigsThe use of electronic cigarettes has tripled in one year among teenagers in the United States, the government reports. Electronic cigarettes mimic the effects of real ones, producing a vapour that is less harmful than cigarette smoke. Increasing numbers of smokers have started using electronic cigarettes since bans on smoking in enclosed public places became more common. Novelty e-cigarettes flavours have also attracted teens. E-cigarettes flavours include cotton candy and breakfast cereals like Cap'n Crunch. Many use e-cigarettes as a way of stopping smoking regular cigarettes. But the vapour usually contains nicotine, the addictive substance in cigarettes.

Study finds illegal immigrants pay $11.8B in taxes

A new nationwide study on the fiscal implications of illegal immigration concludes that millions of undocumented immigrants are paying billions of Illegalsdollar in taxes into state and local coffers, and that substantially more would be generated if President Obama prevails in imposing a new executive order protecting many of those workers from deportation.

The 50-state analysis by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy released on Thursday found that roughly 8.1 million of 11.4 million undocumented immigrants who work paid more than $11.8 billion in state and local taxes in 2012, even while they were living illegally in the country.


Racist Posts on NY Cop Blog Raise Ire at Time of Tension

Week after week, racist posts appear on Thee Rant, a blog for current or former New York City police officers:

African Americans are called “apes;” a retired officer says one of the  New York Police Department (NYPD) officers patrol in Queens in October 2014blessings of retirement is not having to work the Puerto Rican Day parade, with its “old obese tatted up women stuffed into outfits that they purchased or shoplifted at the local Kmart store;

a Middle Eastern cab driver berated by an officer is termed a “third worlder” who should have his “head split open.”

And week after week, the department’s top officials are, at once, embarrassed and powerless.

“It’s very disturbing stuff. Outrageous stuff,” said Stephen Davis, the chief spokesman or the NYPD.

“We see it. It’s a problem.”

Millions of dollars in World War II silver recovered from deep ocean

The vessel sunk to more than 16,800 feet under the surface (5,150 meters) where it went undiscovered until 2011 when Deep Ocean Search decided to go looking for it.(CNN)It took more than seven decades, but England finally got its delivery of tons of silver coins.

For most of those years, the money was deep at the bottom of the Atlantic, the monetary casualty of a cruel World War II sinking.

In November 1942, the unguarded SS City of Cairo was sunk by a German U-boat while carrying 296 civilians and cargo that included 100 tons of silver.

Report: Tulsa sheriff's employees were told to forge Bates' training records

Robert Bates(CNN)Some supervisors at the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office were told to forge Robert Bates' training records, and three who refused were reassigned to less desirable duties, the Tulsa World reported.

Bates' training has come under scrutiny since the 73-year-old volunteer deputy killed Eric Harris on April 2.

Bates claims he meant to use his Taser, but accidentally fired his handgun instead.

Dylan Goforth, one of the two Tulsa World reporters on the story, said the paper starting hearing "almost immediately" from different sources that Bates' training records had been falsified.

Seattle CEO to cut his pay so every worker earns $70,000

Robyn GritzSEATTLE (AP) — A Seattle CEO who announced that he's giving himself a drastic pay cut to help cover the cost of big raises for his employees didn't just make those workers happy.

He's already gained new customers, too. "We've definitely gained a handful of customers in the last day or two," said Stefan Bennett, a customer relations manager at Gravity Payments, a credit card payment processing firm.

"We're showing people you can run a good company, and you can pay people fairly, and it can be profitable."

For some workers, the increase will more than double their pay. One 21-year-old mother said she'll buy a house.

Ex-NFL player Aaron Hernandez guilty of murder

Aaron HernandezFormer New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez has been found guilty of the first-degree murder of his friend, another American footballer.

Relatives of the victim wept in the Massachusetts courthouse as the verdict was announced on live television.

Hernandez was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

He was arrested in 2013 and charged with killing Odin Lloyd, a semi-pro player who was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancee.

Lloyd's body was found with six bullet wounds less than a mile from Hernandez's home.

Sewol ferry disaster: A year later, South Koreans search for solace

 South Korean high school students pays tribute to victims of the Sewol ferry at the memorial altar on April 11, 2015 in Seoul, South Korea. It has been a year since Park Eun-mi lost her daughter in a ferry sinking that cost 304 lives and unleashed profound soul-searching across the country.


Ms. Park has found little solace in the passing of time since the tragedy, one of South Korea’s worst peacetime disasters.

The body of her 17-year-old daughter, Huh Da-yoon, remains lost at sea along with the remains of eight others – all victims of a school trip gone horribly wrong.


“I have been coming out here to picket to say to the presid

ent, ‘Please find my daughter,’” Park says outside the Blue House, the official residence of President Park Geun-hye, several days before the April 16th anniversary.


"Ms. President, please keep to what you said, your promise.”

Park’s solo protest is one of many continuing reverberations from the ferry sinking.


After initially uniting the country in grief, the tragedy swiftly became a source of public anger and shame, and triggered lasting political division and acrimony.


Copter lands on Capitol grounds

Copter lands on Capitol grounds A small gyrocopter landed on the West Lawn of the Capitol on Wednesday, according to the U.S. Capitol Police.

"‎The U.S. Capitol Police is investigating a gyrocopter with a single occupant that has landed on the grassy area of the West Lawn of t‎he U.S. Capitol," said a Capitol Police spokeswoman.

"The U.S. Capitol Police continues to investigate with one person detained and temporary street closures in the immediate area."

The security breach is sure to spark questions about how the pilot was able to land the small aircraft on the grounds of the Capitol.

A restaurant owner's gesture of kindness has spread wildly on social media.

Note to homelessAfter noticing that someone had been rummaging through the rubbish outside her restaurant one morning, Ashley Jiron decided to post a note on her skip (or in American parlance, "dumpster") letting the person know that if they were hungry, they should simply come inside for a free meal.

"You're a human being worth more than a meal from a dumpster," the note reads, and invites the person to come into the restaurant, J.B. Jams, for a sandwich, vegetables and water free of charge.

Michael Slager and 'corrupt cops' sued by black man who says he was tased

 Julius WilsonThe police officer who killed Walter Scott in South Carolina has been sued by another black resident of North Charleston, who alleges he

was tased in the back by Michael Slager while lying face-down

on the pavement.

Slager is among three patrolmen named in a lawsuit filed by Julius Wilson, who said he was arrested after being stopped in his car in August last year.

Wilson is also suing the city of North Charleston, the city police department and the police chief, Eddie Driggers.

Wilson was stopped by an Officer Edwards, he said, who was joined 10 minutes later by Slager and an Officer Clemens despite Wilson calmly “making small talk and laughing”.

Ex-drug officer says he stole cash, planted drugs many times

PHILADELPHIA — A disgraced ex-police officer testifying against his drug squad colleagues acknowledged Tuesday that he stole drug money,  Former Philadelphia Police Officer Jeffrey Walker.planted evidence and lied on police paperwork too many times to count. Jeffrey Walker told jurors that the Philadelphia Police Department drug squad targeted white "college-boy ... khaki-pants types" who were "easy to intimidate."

That matches the description of some of the drug dealers who have testified at the six-week police corruption trial that the squad stole as much as $110,000 at a time during violent, no-warrant raids.

Protesters gather in NY to rally against police violence

protests of brutal policeProtesters angered by fresh cases of police violence against unarmed black men in the United States gathered in New York on Tuesday, hoping to invigorate a national discussion on the thorny issue.

Some 250 placard-bearing activists organized by the Stop Mass Incarceration Network rallied at Union Square in Manhattan to protest the latest incidents of violent police tactics used against minorities. "Stop murder by police" and "Stop killer cops," the signs read.

Galvanizing their cause was the April 4 fatal shooting of Walter Scott, an unarmed black man shot in the back by a white police officer in North Charleston, South Carolina.

The shooting was captured on video, and the officer has been charged with murder.

Family members of several unarmed black or Hispanic men or boys who died in encounters with police called for more oversight. "What this protest right here is about is that too many are being murdered," said Nicholas Heyward Sr., whose son Nicholas Heyward Jr. was shot dead at age 13 in public housing by a police officer 20 years ago while playing cops and robbers with a toy gun.

The surprising downsides of being clever

It's hard to be the smartest person in the room If ignorance is bliss, does a high IQ equal misery? Popular opinion would have it so. We tend to think of geniuses as being plagued by existential angst, frustration, and loneliness.

Think of Virginia Woolf, Alan Turing, or Lisa Simpson – lone stars, isolated even as they burn their brightest.

As Ernest Hemingway wrote:
“Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.”

Obama tells Congress he plans to remove Cuba from terrorism list

Obama tells congress the storyWASHINGTON - President Barack Obama told Congress on Tuesday that he plans to remove Cuba from the U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism, clearing away the main obstacle to restoring diplomatic relations and reopening embassies after more than half a century of enmity.

Obama's decision comes on the heels of a Western Hemisphere summit in Panama where Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro sat down on Saturday for the first meeting of its kind between U.S. and Cuban leaders in nearly 60 years.

Prison time for some Atlanta school educators in cheating scandal

One of the Atlanta Teachers sent to prison for cheating(CNN)There was nothing routine about a sentencing hearing Tuesday in Atlanta that wrote the final legal chapter of one of the most massive school cheating scandals in the country. Educators were convicted April 1 of racketeering and other lesser crimes related to inflating test scores of children from struggling schools. One teacher was acquitted.

One by one, they stood, alongside their attorneys, before Fulton County Superior Court Judge Jerry Baxter.

Tehran wants 'nuclear-free world': Iranian FM

Iranian Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif speaks during a press briefing at the Foreign Ministry in Islamabad on April 8, 2015 (AFP Photo/Farooq Naeem)Astana (Kazakhstan) (AFP) - Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Monday insisted his country wants a "nuclear-free world," days after Tehran's leadership cast doubt on an outline deal to curb its nuclear programme.

Zarif made the comment during a visit to ex-Soviet Kazakhstan as he praised the Central Asian nation for giving up its nuclear weapons after the collapse of the USSR.

"Kazakhstan is an important player in this field, as a country firmly committed to a non-proliferation regime and which voluntarily refused nuclear weapons," Zarif said in a meeting with the head of Kazahstan's Senate.

Chile's Lagos criticizes Venezuela's Maduro

Nicolas MaduroSANTIAGO, Chile (AP) — Former Chilean President Ricardo Lagos is joining more than two dozen other ex-leaders in urging greater respect for human rights in Venezuela.

Lagos complained Monday that Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro hasn't even allowed the International Red Cross to visit jailed opposition leaders. He says that even Gen. Augusto Pinochet "allowed the Red Cross into Chile," during his 1973-1990 dictatorship.

Bookmaker Paddy Power backtracks over 'African-American beatings' tweet

Raheem Sterling(CNN)Irish betting company Paddy Power is backtracking after tweeting that "Newcastle have suffered more Kop beatings over the last 20 years than an unarmed African-American male."


The tweet, a pun on the name of the famous home end at Liverpool Football Club, alluded to recent controversial incidents in the United States in which unarmed African-American men have been killed by police.

As police claim accidental shooting, Twitter homes in on 'F**k your breath'

Eric Courtney Harris' final moments on April 2 -- following(CNN)The police say it's meaningless, but many casual observers are appalled after hearing an Oklahoma police deputy tell a dying man who'd just been shot, "F**k your breath."

Video of Eric Courtney Harris' final moments on April 2 -- following an undercover weapons sting and a foot chase -- shows Tulsa County Reserve Deputy Robert Bates announcing he is going to deploy his Taser but then shooting Harris in the back with a handgun.

Bates immediately apologizes, saying, "I shot him.

I'm sorry."

Harris, who is bleeding, calls out.

He's been shot and didn't do anything, he says.

An officer yells at him,

"You f**king ran! Shut the f**k up!"

"Oh my God, I'm losing my breath," Harris cries as a deputy's knee pins his head to the asphalt.

"F**k your breath," an officer tells him.

"What a horrid article. ... Auditory exclusion? slip and capture? the deputy as the victim? You should be ashamed," wrote Catherine Johnston (@mscathyanne) in a tweet to CNN.

Asked Michelle (@shelbert): #EricHarris "F**k Your Breath" When will police killings stop. When will the #DOJ actually do something to stop this."

Lawyers: Death row inmate's release shows need for review

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Defense attorneys said the release of a man after nearly 30 years on Alabama's death row is an argument for the Anthony Ray Hintonestablishment of a conviction integrity unit to investigate claims of innocence.

The units, established in some areas of the country, review claims of innocence, separate from the court system. North Carolina in 2006 established the North Carolina Innocence Inquiry Commission to investigate claims based on new evidence.

Prosecutors' offices in a handful of large cities, including New York and Dallas, have created their own integrity units.

"It's not a burden. It's not an incredible cost to have some commission that can look at this and review things," said former U.S. Attorney Doug Jones said.

Ray Hinton was freed earlier this month after nearly 30 years on Alabama's death row when new ballistics tests directly contradicted the evidence used to convict him in 1980's.

Hinton was convicted of killing John Davidson and Thomas Wayne Vason during separate 1985 robberies at Mrs. Winner's and Captain D's restaurants in Birmingham.

Black DA to decide charges against white Wisconsin officer

Ismael Ozanne MADISON, Wis. — The story has played out the same way in Ferguson, Missouri, New York City and Milwaukee.

A white police officer kills an unarmed black man, sparking waves of protests before a white prosecutor ultimately decides not to file charges or hands the case off to a grand jury.

That narrative looks different in Wisconsin's capital city, where a liberal biracial prosecutor will decide whether to charge a white officer in an unarmed biracial man's death.

Black protesters have likened last month's fatal shooting of 19-year-old Tony Robinson by police officer Matt Kenny to the killings of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Eric Garner in New York City and Dontre Hamilton in Milwaukee.

Egypt's Sinai Peninsula hit by deadly bomb attacks

Egypt explosionAt least 13 people have been killed in separate bomb attacks in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, security forces have said.

At least six people died and 30 others were injured in an explosion outside a police station in El-Arish. Elsewhere, seven soldiers lost their lives and two were wounded in an attack on an armoured vehicle,

near the northern town of Sheikh Zuweid. Militants from the Sinai Province group, affiliated to Islamic State,

have said they carried out the attacks.

A statement on a Twitter page attributed to the group read:

"An armoured personnel carrier for the army of the apostates was destroyed... killing and wounding all aboard."

Video released of deadly shooting in Tulsa after police chase wanted evidence on camera. But when they recorded a sting against an alleged illegal weapons dealer in Tulsa, Oklahoma, earlier this month, cameras continued to roll as Eric Courtney Harris ran, and as he was fatally shot.

The Tulsa County Sheriff's Office released the video on Friday. The shooting was an apparent accident, it has said.

The reserve deputy thought he had his Taser in hand, not his firearm, and shot Harris "inadvertently," according to the sheriff's office.

Turkey anger at Pope Francis Armenian 'genocide' claim

PopeTurkey has recalled its envoy to the Vatican after Pope Francis described the mass killing of Armenians under Ottoman rule in WW1 as "genocide". Turkey has reacted with anger to the comment made by the Pope at a service in Rome earlier on Sunday.

Armenia and many historians say up to 1.5 million people were killed by Ottoman forces in 1915.

But Turkey has always disputed that figure and said the deaths were part of a civil conflict triggered by WW1.

Hundreds defy ban to protest Saudi Arabia in Iran's capital

Iranians protest Saudi ArabiaTEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Defying a government ban, hundreds of Iranians protested against Saudi Arabia on Saturday over the alleged abuse of two Iranian pilgrims visiting the Sunni kingdom.

Over 300 protesters gathered in front of the Saudi Embassy in north Tehran to call for its closure.

Demonstrators shouted

: "Shame on you!" and "Death to House of Saud!" in reference to the ruling family.

Earlier, Mohammad Reza Yousefi, director of Tehran's Governor Office for Political Affairs, was quoted by the official IRNA news agency as saying any public protest would be illegal.

The protesters walked toward the embassy, wanting to pull down the Saudi flag, but anti-riot police stopped them.

The demonstration came after two male Iranian pilgrims alleged abuse after Saudi officers at Jeddah's international airport searched them.

Details of the claimed abuse have not been made public though Iran formally has called for the Saudi officers to be punished.

Tracking a trail of historical obliteration: ISIS trumpets destruction of Nimrud

How is this not worse than "Burning of a Koran"?

Where are the scenes of panic, anger, visceral response to the ISIS has posted a new propaganda video showing its fighters destroying Nimrudabsolutely destruction of the most precious historic artifacts known to man?

Where are the seething responses by the same Muslims who burn the American Flag when an idiot American Preacher burned a copy of the Koran?

The Destruction of built items that were..., in fact...,

being built when the Profit Mohamed walked the earth...,

and not a peep out of the Muslims.

Where are the senior historians of the Muslim World?

First..., it was the Taliban destroying items built thousands of years ago, and then it was al quaeda destroying building and structures built thousands of years ago, and now it's IS that is destroying valuable history with today's weapons of mass destruction.

If this were a western nation destroying these same artifacts,

people in

Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt would be massing in the streets, screaming bloody murder.

Where is the anger in the Muslim People......?




Police: Christian family band members in deadly parking lot brawl

Disparities in the enforcement of law based on race and location

Arizona investigators have released dramatic video of a Walmart parking lot brawl that left a police officer wounded, one man dead, and reportedly involved members of a Christian family band. A Law has the same design intent in every American City,


we continue to see how a law can be enforced

with extreme differences based on the location of that law,


based on who that law is being applied too.

For Blacks & Hispanics,

the same law being applied by police officers in every American State,

is inherently different,

with this specific case being the best example as to the degree that white race

American Citizens

are treated with the degree of patients that is actually described by the rules of lawful police enforcement:

The Family, not only defy the police officers, they attack the police officers physically and it wasn't until one of the family member's act of actually shooting an officer in the leg,

did the police officer respond with deadly force.

Compare this type of police enforcement to the treatment that
Walter L. Scott received by Michael T. Slager.

There is no acceptable possible explanation that could be presented as to the reasons why these two differences in the application of enforcing law is so contrastingly different.

It is the lack of consequences to flawed behavior by any and all law enforcement officer that allows this disparity to exist.




Italy soul-searches after deadly court shooting

Unintended consequences of laws... may cause unexpected reactions

Police vehicles are parked outside Milan's court after an armed man, identified as Claudio Giardiello, shot dead a judge and lawyer on April 9, 2015 The Concept of Laws

is the intentions to protect the innocent from harm and abuses by others.

Rules are designed to ensure that parameters are in place that cause one to act within the boundaries.

When the Law or a Rule

causes psychological or emotional distress based on the enforcement of that Law or Rule,

human behavior in an individual can be unpredictable because no two human beings could ever be the same.

"I wanted revenge against those who ruined me," Claudio Giardiello, 57, told police who arrested him after the shooting in Milan on Thursday. "

When a Law or a Rule is created,

who it directly affects, must be the deciding factor as to the effectiveness of the design of that Law or Rule.





Minister: Shooting of black man by white officer racist

No Human Being is perfect and it is our flaws that makes us perfect

In the eyes of someone,

you are loved.

Walter L. Scott funeralIt doesn't matter that you are an alcoholic,

It doesn't matter if your a drug addict,

It doesn't matter that your not perfect in your ability to convey your thoughts or emotions effectively,

It doesn't matter that you may have bad breath,

It doesn't matter that you are argumentative,

It doesn't matter that you are short and over weight,

It doesn't matter if your old and set in your ways,

It doesn't matter if your homeless,

It doesn't matter that you have psychological and emotional issues that cause you to be unable to show love,

It doesn't matter that you have committed a crime and have gone to jail.

There will always be one that loves you and for that reason,

there is no justification to allow any police officer to kill any human being whom the police officer believes is unworthy of life.

5 images about being black in America shared after Walter Scott shooting

The World is finally getting a inkling of the life of American Blacks


A Series of black education of black kids and how blacks have to adjust to police brutalitythe only mass media representation in the United States for 50 plus years,

chose to ignore or refuse to cover the brutality of racism in America.

Today, thousands of American venues provide all of the truth, no matter how bad it makes "whites" look.

Now, mass media,

if they miss a beat,

that racist video will show up on a website, causing people to choose the venue that displays all of the facts and not just the facts that make the media company's management comfortable.

The Black Family's Talk



the world is getting the reality in real time, and the mass media that would rather not display the decades of America's racist abuses,


Change is a good thing




Police: Ohio cop beat man after black-tie fundraiser

Police Brutality on any human being is equally as wrong

A drunken, tuxedo-clad rookie Ohio cop faces charges for viciously beating a man outside a Cleveland police fundraiser, according to authorities.

It takes 6 years of education to understand how to assess mental and personality disorders.

It takes 25 years of life to mature to an age of adult understanding, and an additional 5 more years to understand when excuses are no longer acceptable for ones behavior.

It takes 5 years of experience to understand how to wield the power of good judgment when one is anointed the power over the weak.

It takes 6 years of legal study to become a lawyer or one that understand the many facets of the law.


we give a badge and a gun to those who have zero to 2 years of higher education outside of high school.

Francis Pusok

The Gang Mentality

becomes easily acceptable to the under educated mind, and all around this nation, police departments hire the under educated,

they provide the under educated with piss poor training by the older under educated senior management,

they train the under educated mind how to hate and the  "us against them mind set" and they support the poor training with on the street reinforcement by experienced veteran officers.

Then, when a under educated and immature mind beats a man in such a brutal manner that one would wonder,

"how can this happen"?

we act as if it was some type anomaly.

They Lie when filling out the police report.

The Lie is backed by Supervisors, Department Chief, District Attorney, and

the Mayor,

and the victim of a

brutal police gang beat down,

or the victim of a callous police assassination,

is demonized by the entire police department, supported by the DA and a list of supporting lawyers that all represent the brutal gang members...., leaving the victim to suffer from piss poor legal representation that only support based on the amount of money the victim can afford.



Greece Nazi occupation: Athens asks Germany for €279bn

A possible argument by Greece..., one that can reverberate

Mr Tsipras honoured Greek resistance fighters who were executed by Nazi occupation forces To what extent did Germany degrade Greece during WWII?

What were the calculations of reparations during the 1990 agreements?

Was infrastructure destruction and replacement part of that consideration?

A question that could be a plausible question in this year, and a question that can drive a huge wedge in the entire European Union.

A question that perhaps,

Iraq may assign to the illegal war initiated by the Bush Administration in 2003.

The extremely extensive measurement of damages created by any war ought to be part of the results of the consequences of choosing war and not choosing peace.

It is the aggressors who ought to pay, just like any criminal activity that takes place on any city street.



Ferguson voters to make history in election Tuesday

American Southern DemographicsThe Power of Voting, on display.... Every City can be changed by minorities by simply voting

Ferguson Missouri racist treatment of blacks over decades have now been changed



In just 1 day of voting,

the seats of power have changed significantly in Ferguson Missouri, simply because black people figured it out.

Why do you think the republicans don't want

Obama's Immigration Plan to succeed?

Because he opens the doors to non whites who would vote against


Some Ugandan Muslims retreat in fear amid police hunt Republican Racist Foundation at a 95% rate.

ferguson activist take a standAll across the south, if Blacks & Hispanics registered to vote at 75% of their population in the southern cities,

75% of those sitting in the seats of power, would be removed in the next 2 years.

If you want to change the manner in which your police department treats

black & hispanics.....


2016 gives

Blacks & Hispanics

two years to merge as one strong voting voice,

and by voting as one,

in local and national elections,

Cities Council Members, State Leadership, and the American House of Representatives

could become advocates for equal power, equal treatment, equal punishment and equal pay.

The American Party

is for every American




Jeb Bush once said he was Hispanic on voter registration form

A Sample of Poor Judgement in one who seeks an office of huge power

Jeb bushTo this day, millions around the world, yet fight for the right to vote,

and millions in this nation, suffered horrendous beatings for their right to vote.

Jim Crow Laws

used to ensure that blacks did not vote took place for decades, and Jeb Bush, a member of a family that has sat in the seats of political power for more than a half century,

committed what could be construed as a serious violation of the act of voting by selecting a race that he is not a member of.

At best, this act of selecting the race of "Hispanic"

is act of piss poor judgment.

Black people married to a white spouse would never select "white" as the race that the black person "is",

Asians that are married to blacks, would not choose the race of being "black" when voting,

because there are rules associated with the act of voting.

I don't see this act by Jeb Bush, of selecting Hispanic as his race as being an act of loyalty to his Hispanic spouse, I view it as a mental flaw and one that provides an incite into the mental thought process of Jeb Bush.



Pension cash changes come into force

Egregious abuses gone unaddressed and no one is going to jail

relaxingPension Plans have been an American Tradition,

sold as an apparatus that would guarantee ones secure senior years.


those who have convinced millions to pack away pennies, simply added to the huge sums of money used to create the lavish life style desired by pension management companies.

They skimmed from the top to purchase huge mansions,

they collect fees that has nothing to do with your intentions,

they initiate callous stock market trades with your pension and even as you lost thousands as an individual, millions as collective whole,

no one goes to jail.

Trust but Verify

is nothing more than words.




Syria crisis: A brush with the brutal world of child refugees

The Results of adult poor behavior is a child "Begging"

Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Ukraine, Yemen,

are only a few of the examples of how adults child like behavior end up causing the real children to have to beg for food.

Desperate Syrian families send their children onto the streets to beg despite great dangerFighting between nations is really fighting between adults who behave like uneducated animals unable to understand what type of damage can be done once the first bullet is fired.

President Obama is attempting to negotiate a nuclear resolution with a nation that America has spoken directly with for 30 plus years, because the adults on both sides..., in the past,

were truly ignorant mal behaved imbeciles.

Israel's Netanyahu is running around the world, getting other adults to fight with President Obama because Netanyahu and his crony's simply don't like adults in Iran.

War would be a better answer for Netanyahu and the subsequent begging on the streets by children will be the results.

I’d Rather Be Known

For My Weaknesses

In a world
where everyone is looking

to be recognized for the thing

that they may say


the thing that they may do,

for a world

that is structured around

spontaneous fame for any small thing

a person may say or do,

for a world

that jumps at every opportunity

to praise a person for hero ship

of any kind,


demonize a person

for any type of crime


act that they commit,

"I would rather be known

in this world

for my weaknesses"

rather than my strengths.

My Strengths

are no different than

any other quality man

or quality person on earth,

I’m a good thinker,

I’m a person of convictions,

I’m a person that loves to read,

I’m a person that loves life,

I’m a planner,

I’m a observer,

I’m a respectful person,

I’m a decisive person,

I’m a physically strong person,

I’m a person of great character,

I’m a person that believes in

giving without want and

I’m a person that loves to

show love to the ones that love me.


for the people that know me

and love me the most,

my kids,

my mother,

my brother,

my sister,

my friends

and the ones that talk to me

on a daily bases,

my strengths are the things

that cause them to maintain

a distance from me.

It’s my discipline,

my focus,

my inner great strength and

great character

that cause the ones that I love the most,

to avoid me.

It’s the traits of strength and confidence,

it’s the traits of resolve,

it’s the traits of moral conviction

that cause the ones that I talk to

each day to

avoid me.

Today is

“Father’s Day”

and after having conversations with

my Son & Daughter,

I realize that their gesture

of calling me was a tough thing to do.

I realize that my kids

called me because it is

“Father’s Day”,


I also accepted

and acknowledged

that my kids would rather not

speak with me

due to my “strengths” and

it’s my “strengths”

that I have great pride in,

yet it’s those strengths

within me

that hurt the people that I love.

Who is right and who is wrong?


although I love the person that I am,

I acknowledge and realize

that it’s my strengths that cause others

to feel uncomfortable around me

or to talk to me

or be at my side.

Would I be more appreciated

or would my family members

be more willing to interact with me

if I were an alcoholic because I love my beer,

or would my family members and friends

feel more confident to lecture me

because I like to smoke weed on occasions

which causes me to not be able to find a job,

would I be more acceptable to all

if I were a person who has bad credit

allowing others to have a need to help me

because I can’t do certain things for myself

as a result of having

bad credit?


if my traits of weaknesses

were to control me

to allow my family and friends

to feel more willing to interact with me,

I then become a Burdon in their hearts,

causing them, then,

to despise me equally,

as they do for my being

a strong person,


more willing to interact with me

with a sense of positivity.

On this day,

a Father’s Day,

I will say

for this specific moment,

I’d rather have my weakness traits prevail,

just to feel the love of my family

because they are concerned and love me,

as appose to

avoiding me because

I’m a individually strong person.


that this moment of weakness

will leave in a minute,

I wanted to write these thoughts down

for my own

individual reasons.

Jake Corman removes punishment imposed on Penn State

A win for Paterno? Proposed NCAA deal could restore Penn State victories 1/17


Rapes Ignored by Penn State...,
Now.., a repreive for Penn State


A reminder of what caused Penn State to be appropriately punished:


Poor decisions by those who were in positions of authority,
positions to protect the boys, and those in positions to report the rapes,
did nothing, and they're lack of actions allowed the rapes to continue, and for that reason, Penn State was appropriately punished.


Now, once again, business as usual has the good old boys,
coming to the rescue of other good old boys by removing the necessary punishments that were determined as "soft".


Joe Paterno did nothing and that is why the Penn State's Wins were removed, and now, the punishments are being removed
in what I assess as a
Unconscionable Travesty.


Every Rape Victim consciousness
is being
Re - Raped


Joe Paterno is now winningest coach

Paterno's statue removed at Penn St.


Prosecutors in Sandusky case present new, graphic details


Former Penn State coach charged with sexual abuse, maintains innocence


PSU: JoePa's legacy 'marred'


Alleged victim says he screamed in vain for help during Sandusky incident

Four-star recruit Jean Delance decommits from Oklahoma following racist video 3/13

The Power of Young Black Athletes can

change America


is the driving force for all things in America and those who have the most money... has the most influence,
the most power,
the most recognition
and the greatest ability to change who they are and what they are.


Black Male Athletes
are worth their weight in gold,
literally, in that,
the black male athlete brings talent and skills to a college campus, and by doing so,
he brings T. V. Cameras and those T. V. Cameras bring huge sums of money to that College Campus,
to the extent that,
the "1" talented young black athlete can generate upwards of $20 Million Dollars for his first year of participating in the sport of his expertise.


"Four-star recruit
Jean Delance decommits from Oklahoma
following racist video
is like a huge meteor hitting the
American White College Campuses
square in the middle of their
present and future wallets.


Racist and Racism
on traditional American White College Campuses,
now matter...
and if more black athletes begin to opt out
of the Traditional White College,
huge sums of money will follow
that young black athlete no matter where he goes because the T. V. Cameras
are interested in that black athlete
no matter where he goes.

Ben Carson's idiot comments on gays

Being Gay Not a Choice: Science Contradicts Ben Carson 3/8/15

Sometimes, the word "IDIOT"

is the appropriate word to describe someone


Ben Carson's recent comments suggesting that being Gay is a choice... using the comparison of how men entering jail are not gay, but when they leave jail, they are somehow changed into becoming gay.....
are comments that meet the criteria of an


There are distinct differences between
stupidity, callousness, irrational, immoral and idiocy.


These words, when used to describe and individual, are often times used to describe a person's behavior as it associates to the person in a negative light, yet, each word has a totally different representation of negativeness.

This is a specific behavior designed purposely to hurt others, and this behavior by an individual, who is actually being displayed as a republican presidential candidate... is what I would construe as self destructive behavior, or otherwise known as behavior so stupid that the word
is the only word that meets the degree of un intelligent behavior.


Again, only a complete idiot undermines himself with stupid comments and then attempt to suggest that it is CNN that actually cause the uproar after his interview on CNN.

Mind you, this isn't Carson's first instance of self destructive comments and I will only conclude by saying,
the pattern of un intelligent comments validates that Ben Carson is a idiot over a span of time and he seems to stay on that path for enough time for me to say,

He is a Idiot each day.

Duke, Coach K figured out how to rule a new world

Jordan SpiethAUGUSTA, Ga. -- As a middle-school math and science teacher in his previous life, Michael Greller knows what makes kids tick and what inspires them to grow. He does not miss the lesson planning or the time spent returning emails to parents, but he sure does miss the relationships and the joy of watching a sixth-grader blossom into a seventh-grader. "Now it's the same thing," said Greller, now a professional caddie, "except that I have one kid, one person I'm working with."

Tiger Woods flirts with low number, still happy with third-round 68

Tiger Woods continued to show positive signs in the second round of the Masters as he carded a three-under 69 Friday to put him at two under for the tournament.
AUGUSTA, Ga. -- The frustrated club toss and ensuing fine-inducing, microphone-catching expletive uttered in rapid succession might be the best sign yet that Tiger Woods is rounding into form. So, too, the demonstrative fist pump after making up for that poor tee shot on the 13th hole Saturday at Augusta National.

The sentences will be appealed. The criminal court sentenced 36 other defendants to life in prison on charges of plotting terrorist attacks against state facilities.

Minister: Shooting of black man by white officer racist

Walter L. Scott funeralSUMMERVILLE, S.C. (AP) — The death of a black man shot in the back while fleeing a white police officer was the act of a racist cop,

funeral of Walter Scott.

told an overflow congregation. "There is no doubt in my mind and I feel that Walter's death was motivated by racial prejudice."

Authorities have not said whether race was a factor in the shooting.

Scott was a father of four and Coast Guard veteran whose death sparked outrage as another instance of a white law officer fatally shooting an unarmed black man under questionable circumstances.

The shooting last weekend in North Charleston was captured on a dramatic cellphone camera video by a man who was walking past. About 450 people including U.S. Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., and U.S. Rep.

Jim Clyburn, D-S.C.,

Residents allowed to return to tornado-hit Illinois town

Tornado damage in IlliFAIRDALE, Ill. (AP) — Residents of a small northern Illinois farming community that took a direct hit from a half-mile-wide tornado were allowed back into the area Saturday to assess damage and salvage what they could.

The DeKalb County Sheriff's Office bused residents into Fairdale at 7 a.m. so they could begin to take stock of what was left of their property. Seeing the wreckage up close for the first time since Thursday's storms left some amazed that they survived.

"I thought my parents were dead," said 32-year-old Adam Davis, who hopped into his truck Thursday and raced along with the tornado in the hopes of getting to his parents' house and rescuing them before the twister struck.

He found them standing in their doorway frozen in disbelief and grabbed them just in time.

On Saturday,

he was helping collect what could be salvaged from his childhood home, now full of debris, its roof ripped off and its windows broken.

The 78 Counties Where Minorities Have Become the Majority

American Southern DemographicsBy 2040, the country's white population will no longer be the majority. But for many regions around the country, this demographic shift has already arrived.


A new map created by the Pew Research Center pinpoints the 78 counties in 19 states where, from 2000 to 2013, minorities together outnumbered the white population.

Pew crunched Census numbers from the 2,440 U.S.

counties that had more than 10,000 residents in 2013. Whites made up less than half the population in a total of 266 counties.


Even though these 266 counties made up only 11 percent of the counties analyzed, they contained 31 percent of the country's total population, with many of them home to dense urban areas.

Most of these counties are sprinkled around the Sun Belt states in southern part of the country (below).

Of the 25 counties with the largest total populations, 19 now have non-white majorities. As of 2000, six of these (four in California and two in Florida) had white majorities. The most dramatic change within the last decade can be seen in counties in Georgia.

Stingray spying: FBI's secret deal with police hides phone dragnet from courts

This undated handout photo provided by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office shows the StingRay II, manufactured by Harris Corporation, of Melbourne, Fla.The FBI is taking extraordinary and potentially unconstitutional measures to keep local and state police forces from exposing the use of so-called “Stingray” surveillance technology across the United States, according to documents obtained separately by the Guardian and the American Civil Liberties Union.

Multiple non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) revealed in Florida, New York and Maryland this week show federal authorities effectively binding local law enforcement from disclosing any information – even to judges – about the cellphone dragnet technology, its collection capabilities or its existence.

In an arrangement that shocked privacy advocates and local defense attorneys, the secret pact also mandates that police notify the FBI to push for the dismissal of cases if technical specifications of the devices are in danger of being revealed in court.
