‘Completely Intact Skeleton’ of Son Found in This Elderly Mother’s Home

hoarder-mom-skeleton-son

*Whew. I need a minute and be forewarned,  you might too. The article you are about to read may easily be mistaken for a scene from an Alfred Hitchcock film detailing something Norman Bates-style. But alas, it’s not. Here goes: A fully intact skeleton, still wearing clothes, was found on the second floor of a woman known to be a hoarder.

The “body” may have been there for as long as 20 years, according to NYPD.

The real-life discovery was made by accident on September 15 by Josette Buchman, the sister-in-law of Rita Wolfensohn, an elderly woman who resides in the Midwood section of Brooklyn. Buchman had gone to the home to pick up mail and some of the woman’s belongings to take to her in the hospital.

Wolfensohn is legally blind. The skeletal remains were of her son.

Authorities say there is a good chance she didn’t even know the dead man was in the house.

Good lawd!

Police sources told The New York Post that the “completely intact” skeleton was dressed in jeans, socks and a shirt, lying on its back on a thin mattress on the floor. Continue reading

Meet the Killer Women of ‘Life Without Parole’ (West Coast Premiere!), Plus Video Teaser

"Life Without Parole," playing at Vanguard University, centers around domestic violence survivors who've killed their abusers.
“Life Without Parole,” a scene from the Vanguard University production, centers around domestic violence survivors who’ve killed their abusers.

*The women of  Life Without Parole are real women. This is their story.

At a parole hearing at the California Institution for Women in Chino in 1999, Helen Broker must fight to regain her freedom. She’s been jailed for killing the abusive husband who beat her, threatened to rape her daughter, and who pointed a pistol at her.

She’s a member of a prison support group, CWAV (Convicted Women Against Violence). Her fellow group members are all women who have killed the husbands or boyfriends who beat them. According to the criminal justice system, they’re all guilty of second degree murder. But were they just defending themselves against perpetrators of domestic violence?

Life Without Parole is the story of Helen Broker and her fellow inmates who have all trod down this heartbreaking path. Where is justice for them?

Playwright Warren John Doody based his narrative on the research of the late Dr. Elizabeth Dermody Leonard, who interviewed over forty incarcerated women in the course of her research. Much of the play’s text consists of verbatim transcriptions of the women’s stories. Some scenes are re-enactments of actual events. Continue reading

*Uh-oh! It appears at least 30 of ‘Oakland’s Finest’ has, in the words of Ricky Ricardo, “some ‘splainin’ to do,” because according to 19-year-old Jasmine Abuslin, they wore her out as their sex slave.

Now the woman who has built herself a career in prostitution says the sum of $66 million dollars is the only thing that will help her to fuggetaboutit! 

Abuslin said she has had sex with officers in Oakland, Richmond, San Francisco, Contra Costa and San Joaquin counties.

Yep! As a former Bay Area resident, I’d say that about covers the entire region.

Abuslin’s old name was Celeste Guap. And she says not only was she a sex slave, but also a victim of sex trafficking. On Friday, September 16, criminal charges were filed by the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office in the ongoing sexual misconduct case.

According to an article in Rolling Out, seven current and former San Francisco Bay Area police officers to date is being charged for sexual misconduct. One officer, Brendan O’Brien, ended his part in the scandal by committing suicide after Abuslin started talking about the romps on social media.

White Men at Washington’s American University Throw Rotten Bananas at Black Women

american-university

*It seems ignorant white men are still seeking new ways to curb their sexual desire for Black women. To them I ask: How’s that working out for ya, fellas?

Whereas ‘back in the day’ they saw fit to humiliate Black men in front of their women; and rape those women as part of the ordeal, the tactic being used now is throw rotten bananas at ’em.

This is what Black female students are going through at American University in Washington, D. C.

Several women have come forward to report the incidents.

“I called my grandma up, and she said she went through the same thing, 40, 50-plus years ago,” says Jada Bell, the Black Student Alliance’s outreach coordinator while speaking with Buzzfeed about the current harassment she and other Black women are facing from white men on the school’s campus.

“Black women are under threat on campus — they are being used as target practice.”

“We’re literally being attacked and assaulted on campus, and there’s nothing being done about it by the administration,” she said. Continue reading

Pastor Tells HS Crowd to Stand for National Anthem or Get Shot

*By now, we should all be use to nut cases who try to use scripture to justify the ills of man.  Slavery, the oppression of women, homophobia…I always say:  if you want a scripture to justify what you want to think, you can find one…or twist one…to suit your needs.

But I’ll be damned if self-described men of the cloth aren’t just spouting off whatever they want to say, with or without any scriptural support!   And those on the mental edge have been pushed over it by Colin Kaepernick and his awesome protest of racial injustice.  

The pastor of Sweet Home Baptist Church in Alabama, who moonlights as an announcer at McKenzie High School football games — or maybe it’s the other way around — told a crowd Friday night to rise for the national anthem…or get shot.  

“If you don’t want to stand for the National Anthem, you can line up over there by the fence and let our military personnel take a few shots AT you since they’re taking shots FOR you,” Pastor Allen Joyner said before the game, according to an (of course) now deleted Facebook post.

School officials denounced Joyner with a quickness. Continue reading

Study Says People Who Commit Crimes Have At Least One Thing ‘In Common’

prison

*It’s an undeniable fact that Black and poor people  vs. white and rich make up a disproportionate population in the prison system. But you don’t have to take my word for it, I believe they give prison tours, don’t they? But seriously, have you ever wondered why some people take the criminal route, while others don’t? You can certainly throw in bad circumstances such as poverty, lack of opportunity, racism, and other very justifiable reasons. But if you are being completely realistic you see that two people living in the same circumstances are not necessarily taking the same route.

In other words, person #1 lives right next door to person #2, in a shitty neighborhood, horrible family situation, no money, no positive role models, no hope. Person #1 decides to go into a career of criminal behavior; while person #2, his or her neighbor, makes a decision to attend community college.

Why is that exactly?

Religious connotations aside, let's call this one Good vs. Evil

Cop in West Virginia Fired for (Get This!) ‘Not Shooting’ Armed Man

west-virginia-cop-1000x532

*There is no doubt Stephen Mader read the situation right. The now former Weirton police officer had been called out on a domestic violence dispute by the girlfriend of Ronald Williams who told him that the man was threatening to kill himself. Once Mader arrived he saw that Williams had a gun. But the officer was not quick to assume he was in danger.

“I saw then he had a gun, but it was not pointed at me,” Mader recalled, as he noticed the silver handgun was in the man’s right hand, hanging at his side and pointed at the ground.

Unlike many police officers, Mader instantly remembered his training in the Marines along with his situational police academy training; and instead of the traditional shoot now ask questions later he did something very brave: he made a decision to ‘look at the whole person’ in an attempt to decipher if it was truly a terrorist situation.

With this in mind, he did not shoot.

That decision has now cost him his job. Continue reading

Wells Fargo Bank Fined Millions for Opening New Accounts You Didn’t Authorize

*If you are one of the customers who bank with Wells Fargo, and found yourself confused at some point when you got an overdraft notice for money you just KNEW was in your checking account, when you last checked? You’ll want to hear this.

The bank was recently  slapped with $185 million in fines after it was discovered that bank employees had been opening new accounts for customers, that the customers had not authorized or expressed any interest in having.

Not only that, the employees were found to be transferring money, signing customers up for credit cards; activating debit cards — oh god, the list goes on.

All of this without the customers expressed authorization.

Why?

Because bottom line, they wanted to look good to the boss and get the commission that comes along with opening up new accounts, so they inflated the sales figures by taking the aforementioned actions.

‘Memba gramma used to say, ‘Cain’t [sic] trust NOBODY!’ That would apply here. Continue reading
