*Carnell Alexander is being pursued by the welfare dept. to reimburse them to the tune of more than $30,000 in the state of Michigan because an ex-girlfriend wrongly named him on paperwork as the child’s father when she applied for assistance in the 80s.
Alexander learned of the paternity case against him in 1991, after being stopped for a traffic violation. The police officer called him a dead-beat dad, and he was taken into custody.
“I knew I didn’t have a child so I was kind of blown away,” said Alexander in an interview late last year. A notification was sent to Alexander at a house in Highland Park. Because paperwork had been filed and he did not appear in court, Alexander was assumed to be a negligent father. Continue reading
*A gunman has been killed after opening fire on two police officers moments after they were sworn in at a ceremony in a Minneapolis suburb on Monday, officials said. The suspect was shot dead in the New Hope, Minnesota City Hall, according to what Chief Deputy Mike Carlson of the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Department told reporters. The officers were in good condition and were expected to survive, he said.
Some of the incident was captured by cameras inside the council chamber, as an off-camera council member is heard warning, “Get down, get down. Everybody get down.” Continue reading
*You get the feeling every police officer out there dreads the fact that the all-seeing-eye of a camera has come into existence. Add to that, the “everyday Joe” can capture them doing just about anything, and there’s nothing the police can do about it. Offenses that may have been one persons’ word against the officer’s in the past, now take on a whole new dimension. For example, it will be interesting to hear the story that a San Francisco police officer comes up with, to justify why he shoved a man in a wheelchair into the street. Continue reading
*Hey, how many of us love a good tuna sandwich? Just thinking about one we can practically taste it — with the chopped celery, maybe a little boiled egg mixed in, some mayo. All on a nice french bun. But when we open the can to start the preparation of the tasty sandwich, we probably wouldn’t count on a pair of fish eyes staring up at us. I dunno, all of a sudden you find you’re not hungry after all.
Zoe Butler said she won’t even share the news of the find with her daughter, who she was preparing dinner for when she found it inside the can of Princes tuna she was making.
The young 28-year-old British woman was shocked and sent a picture that showed a tiny creature with eyes to Princes Tuna who now promises to investigate.
Scroll down to see the ghastly sight. Continue reading
*Looks like a group of former McDonald’s employees didn’t have it their way while they worked at the franchise. So their suing the restaurant for racial discrimination and sexual harassment.
But they’re also taking it a step further and actually naming the fast-food giant as a defendant in the suit.
The 10 plaintiffs — nine of whom are African-American, and one, Hispanic, claim that white employees were hired in their place after they were wrongfully fired last year. The plaintiffs say their managers at the various stores believed there had been “too many black people [working] in the store.” The lawsuit (viewable here) alleges that women were harassed and groped and that minorities were subjected to racist taunts. It also claims that managers referred to one restaurant as “the ghetto store.” Continue reading
*If you’re old enough, you may remember Doogie Howser, the lovable teen doctor portrayed by Neil Patrick Harris in the late 80’s to early 90’s. Well folks got another taste of this recently, but it wasn’t on TV.
He called himself, “Dr. Robinson,” and after the fact, hospital staff at St, Mary’s Medical Center in Florida found themselves scratching their heads saying, “I thought something was strange about that young man!” Now you know folks need a good talking to if they didn’t question the teenage boy with the stethoscope around his neck, calling himself doctor.
But apparently, they were too busy being impressed.
The teen walked the halls of the Medical Center in West Palm Beach for four weeks straight before anyone thought something was a bit off kilter.
Police described him as wearing a white coat with the St. Mary’s logo.
*Looks like somebody already got a plan B in the event talent doesn’t get your attention. I’ll give you a hint: What does Kim K. and Nicki Minaj have in common?
A BIG butt, right?
Well now magnify both their butts by 50 and they might equal the huge azz on Micah who, BTW, is a man.
Micah is an up-and-coming R&B singer who actually seems to have some talent (I’ll guide you to his video). Too bad he doesn’t trust it enough to open with it.
But that’s a story for another day.
Its hard for me to even repeat that “many question” whether his attributes are real, padded or surgically-inclined; because they “have grown” over the years. Damn fools, OF COURSE THEY’RE SURGICALLY INCLINED!
