David Stephens holds one of the two children he has with the victim.

*We can sure hope David Stephens of Jacksonville, Fla.  didn’t mean what he said. And only said it because the news cameras were in his face and caught him off guard. I hope that he will come forth to clarify his stance.

But then again, we have to realize, he might not. Continue reading

Cop Arrested for Buying Crack Cocaine Says, ‘It’s Not for Me, It’s for My Wife’

*Far too many people today believe the recently documented power-hungry actions of police officers confirm many of them have clearly lost their minds, so this headline may not be anything out of the ordinary.

But still, wonders never cease to amaze us.

So the recent arrest of a Florida police officer who was under the suspicion of a drug purchase in a Walmart parking lot brought about a very strange admission. Upon confrontation, the officer actually told his arresting officers, “The crack is not for me, it’s for my wife.”

Oh, OK. Carry on. As you were.

Yeah. Right. Only in your imagination, buddy. Its as if the officer expected the response to be sufficient. Continue reading

Former Police Detective’s Arrogant Stance on ‘Trail of Black Bodies’ Only Provokes Anger in Huffpost Host

*Anyone with a pulse would most likely take offense (or at the very least, question)  at the viewpoint of former detective Harry Houck and his justification for the recent “trail of black bodies” at the hands of white officers.

The death of Baltimore’s Freddie Gray, 25, have given black people one more reason to be riled up. And  on Tuesday,  HuffPost Live host Marc Lamont Hill appeared on CNN‘s “Outfront with Erin Burnett” and unknowingly served as the voice (and temperament) of many who don’t have a platform to pose and argue the questions we have about why it is that white officers appear to so blatantly disregard black lives.

Surgeon’s License ‘Erased’ After He Punches Patient Under Anesthesia in the Face 10 Times

Ninian Peckitt lost his medical license because he lost his cool and punched a patient 10 times
Ninian Peckitt lost his medical license because he used unethical methods to “fix” a patient. He used his fist and punched the patient numerous times, in front of witnesses…Then he denied it.

*This is mind-boggling to say the least. When we go to the doctor and then into surgery and we are “put under,” suffice it to say we entrust the nature of our medical repair to the surgeon. We expect that medical professional to be exactly that…professional. So it comes as no surprise that the unusual and unethical procedures used by a British surgeon while he operated on a patient under anesthesia has landed him in hot water with the medical board.

Professor Ninian Peckitt (pictured above), 63, a leading facial surgeon, has been “erased” from a registry that recognizes licensed doctors in the UK after they learned he had one accompanying doctor hold the head of a patient while he punched the patient in the face multiple times under the auspices of fixing his fractured cheekbone.

Peckitt, who is said to have balled up his fist and struck the patient in the face 10 times, has now been found unfit to practice by the General Medical Council, who has actually brought a case against him. Continue reading

Popeye’s Chicken Employee Fired for Not Replacing Money Stolen from Her at Gunpoint (Watch)

 

Popeyes worker fired

*At first glance, in what can only be seen as a heartless action, an employee who was the unfortunate victim of a robbery at the place where she worked, has been fired from her job because she refused to reimburse the employer for the stolen money.

Two additional things make this employer, Popeyes Chicken, look really bad: One, the woman was robbed at gunpoint and two, they fired a pregnant woman whose life was in danger.

It happened in the Channelview Texas eatery; where approximately $400 was stolen on March 31 during an armed robbery that was recorded by the restaurants’ security cameras.

The woman, Marissa Holcomb, was informed by the store manager that she would be fired if she didn’t replace the stolen money.

“I told them I’m not paying nothing,” Holcomb told KHOU-TV. “I just had a gun to me. I’m not paying the money.” Continue reading

Watch: Young Boy Poses With Guns, Weed and Cash…And Gains Thousands of Twitter Followers

*Its hard to imagine a young African American boy still seeing gang life as something cool. What with all the unarmed black men being killed by police – and it being all in your face because it was recorded raw; on cellphone, by people on the street. But one Memphis child is getting a lot of attention after he put photos online showing him celebrating gang life by posing with guns, money and drugs. 

And the general public is eating it up. The youngster has amassed thousands of followers on twitter as a result.

The kid is from Memphis, Tennessee. And as if what he is doing is not bad enough by itself; in the background of one video (scroll down) he appears to be getting egged on by a roomful of adults.

You see a photo of him in one post blowing smoke with the accompanying caption: ‘High Life.’

On another post he blatantly captions: ‘I need a bad b****’, ‘f*** da police’, and ‘gang sh** n****’.

While others feature sexual references, such as: ‘quit suckin my d***’. 

The child is identified by a cousin who spoke with a Memphis television news station as 13-year-old Jonathan. Continue reading

Watch: Holy Heart Failure! A Bat Suit For Those on a Budget (Resists Stabs & Punches!)

Batsuit

*Holy heart failure, Batman! Is that a new suit?

It sure is, but its not for the Batman we know from the past, neither is it from the vault of one “Bruce Wayne.” It came from the mind of prop maker Jackson Gordon, who was obviously a fan.

And what’s more: This Batsuit was built on a budget.

Gordon built this Batsuit for himself from Kevlar, impact-absorbing foam and plating. The result is a 25-pound (11-kilogram) flexible, mobile suit that withstands punches, knives and clubs (but not bullets). Continue reading

*No one was watching as little Damani Terry tried to cross the street to join the girls who were dancing in the park on the other side. So the 2-year-old proceeded to cross — right into the path of an oncoming van.

The van struck the toddler. And shortly after driver Archie Brown, Jr. jumped out to check on the little boy, who was motionless, he, along with the boys older brother and an uncle, would end up dead.  Continue reading
