*Parents, I hate to break it to you but, you’ve probably heard the saying, “Be afraid. Be very afraid.” Only thing is, it’s usually associated with something cute and gimmicky. Some scary movie or sales pitch. Unfortunately, that’s not the case here. Nut jobs are getting more brazen than ever these days. Only last week we heard about the Glendale woman who, in broad daylight snatched, or attempted to snatch two young children. Fortunately, two days later she was captured. Now some other fool has walked right up to a family in a supermarket and lifted their one-year-old child over his shoulder and walked out.
Let me say that again.
He lifted these people’s child up onto his shoulder and WALKED OUT!
And there is video to prove it below.
Before we go any further, I’m happy to report the kidnapper, identified as Stephen O’Brien, didn’t get far and the kid is fine, thanks to his dad who, after the shock of it wore off, followed the crazy man out of the store and took his child back before alerting store employees to call the cops.
When you see the guy hand the child back, without further incident, watch what he does to the father.
*Who said humans are the only ones that can film things? Apparently, they lied! At least as far as one little tech-savvy squirrel is concerned. This cute little rodent decided to snatch some YouTuber’s GoPro equipment and take us on a little romp through the park.
*My god. No telling who your child may bring home from school. But consider yourself among the fortunate if her ‘new friend’ turns out to be her biological sister that was kidnapped nearly two decades earlier!
It happened in Cape Town, South Africa. After 17 years of celebrating the birthday of a daughter who was snatched from them only three days after her birth at a Cape Town hospital, Morne and Celeste Nurse got a phone call that assured them they were parents again! Continue reading →
*So who is responsible? The scenario presented in the headline alone asks this. What we know further is that a mobile home owner got sick and tired of his property being burglarized and set a trap.
According to what Washington County Sheriff Richard Stringer told Fox affiliate WALA, Nathaniel Johnson, 68, decided to take matters into his own hands after a series of burglaries at his mobile home in Leroy, Alabama.
According to AI.com, Johnson’s trap included him parking his car at a neighbor’s home one night in an effort to appear the home was empty. He then returned. Turned out all the lights and placed a car mirror near a window so he could see what was happening outside.
Then he waited.
Shortly before midnight, Johnson told authorities he heard a knock at the front door, which he did not answer. The person then went around back and Johnson heard him breaking in.
According to Johnson, he confronted the suspect and the surprise made the man either fall off the steps or jump. Either way, the move made it possible for Johnson to subdue him. He managed to tie the man’s hands, duck-tape his mouth, and then tie him to a tree. Continue reading →
*“Let me kill this baby … You are a bad motherf*cker. That’s why you always have to get in jail,” can you believe that these are the words coming from the mouth of a six-year-old who’s elder is videotaping her? It all began when the woman behind the camera asked the little girl to “show us how you play with your doll.”
That’s when the tirade began.
I’m sure Black folk all over the world are jumping for joy that its not one of ours.Continue reading →
*Apparently this fool didn’t hear about the Bank of America employee who was fired after she posted her racist rant on Facebook. I swear, this is even further proof that racist people are simply not that smart. OK, I’ll say it: They’re downright dumb. And ignorant. Take Diane Amoratis, an employee…er, former employee, at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Center City, Philadelphia, who NBC reports wrote that she was “sick and tired of all this bull—- with the black people,” on Facebook.
Hey, people have a right to their opinion. Hell, we all have them, but that does not mean you have to put them on blast. And this fool didn’t stop there. Her hate even intercepted a compliment she was giving the police officers stationed at the protests. Truly, it was as if once she opened her mouth to spew her hate, a bad case of diarrhea set in and she just couldn’t stop. Continue reading →
“We’ll see how much her life matters soon..better be careful leaving your info open where she can be found 🙂 hold her close tonight it’ll be the last time.” Imagine a police officer leaving this comment about your 5-year-old daughter on your Facebook page. These horrific words come verbatim from a man who called himself Rodney Lee Wilson. It didn’t take long for him to be identified as a white cop on the force of the Overland Park Police Department in Kansas.
And it took even less time for his ass to be fired.
When Lanaydra Williams saw the post that had been written about a picture of her precious daughter; which had been on the page for more than two years, she told FOX 4 news, who spoke with her on Friday via Skype, that she was shocked.
“I received a notification from a name I didn’t know,” Williams recalled.
Already on edge from the news about the situation in Dallas, where 5 officers were killed, Williams said this threatening post added insult to injury and she didn’t sleep at all.
“It’s not okay. Not my child, she’s all I have. India is my heart, that’s not right. We’re already on edge, so why would you do that?” Williams asked.Continue reading →
*I’ve visited Phoenix only once, one July over a decade ago. As my plane from Detroit landed that morning, the pilot announced that the temperature outside was “a relatively comfortable 107 degrees.”
I thought he was joking, until I walked out of the airport and experienced heat so intense it caused birds outside to literally pant like dogs. Growing up in chilly Michigan, I’d never seen a bird pant before!
So I KNOW it’s hot in Phoenix, so generally speaking, the less clothing you have on, the better. But our brothers and sisters there have taken things to a new level. Continue reading →
