L.A. Gang Threatens to Kill 100 People in 100 Days (to Retaliate for Death of Homie)?

Gang actor

*WARNING: We hope this is only a rumor. It originated from a post on laurmahni.tumblr.com on July 25 and has since gone viral.

The post warns people to be safe because L. A. gang members have vowed to kill 100 people in 100 days and the threat is said to have been inspired by the killing of  [a] 27-year-old man on July 17; a death that sparked alarming hashtags such as #100days100nights and #PrayforLA on Twitter and other sites.

The post reads:

post on gangs

No one knows for sure if this is real or not. Some sites say it is; while “urban legends/rumor” site Snopes.com says it’s not.

But as crazy as people can be, its better to be safe than sorry so don’t make any unnecessary trips to new neighborhoods. Capeesh?

The rumor spawned reflections on numerous urban  legends about how gangs engage in ill-thought out games, contests, and initiations that end up with innocent, random people dead. And heated racial tensions along with a seemingly endless wave of profiling, police brutality and now, a growing number of mysterious jail-cell deaths, could very well be the trigger these gangs need to release a misguided boast like killing 100 people in 100 days.

Cops So Busy Being Inappropriate With People, K-9s Left to Die in Hot Cars

*Four police dogs have died over the past five weeks in the hot car of their human colleague after being forgotten as the cop was most likely off being inappropriate with some civilian.

One such dog was known as Baston (pictured above).  He was a 7-year-old German Shepherd that was left in his owners car after the owner fell asleep inside the house after bringing in the groceries.

When the handler realized the dog was still in the car, three to four hours later — with the windows rolled up and the engine off, he rushed the dog inside and placed it in a cool tub of water. But it was too late. Temperatures were greater than 95-degrees that day. Continue reading

Floyd Dent in court points out those who beat him.

*In a video that police did not expect to see the light of day, officers from the Inkster, Michigan police dept. are now under fire after the video surfaced recently that shows how they stopped a man, pulled him from his car, and beat him mercilessly. Then, after bringing the bleeding man to the station, they made him sit — without medical attention even being requested — and watch as they laughed and re-enacted moments from his arrest.

The arrest happened two months ago. Floyd Dent is seen getting pummeled mercilessly by one cop as others watch.

The video was never turned in, but somehow, it recently surfaced and what these cops are seen doing, in celebration of apprehending and beating this black man, is nothing short of horrible. Continue reading

Debt adviser, Steve Bucci, at Bankrate shares his wisdom on the topic. Continue reading

Restaurant Workers ‘Shocked’ By Generous Tips from Customers Anonymous & Known!

*Teenaged Waiter Spends Time Talking With Customer on Slow Night…Gets $1,000 Tip

WAITER-TIP-570

One teen waiter got the shock of his life for something he actually would’ve done, or did do, for free.

It was a slow night at the Smokey Barque BBQ in Frankfort, Ill., so 19-year-old Brendan Motil, who only recently started working there, got to talking to one of his late-night customers.

I guess all went well with the conversation because when Motil went over to clear the table, he couldn’t believe what he saw left behind.

The $20.31 bill had $1,000 on the tip line!

“My jaw dropped. I couldn’t do anything. I was in shock,” Motil shares in this interview with a local Chicago broadcast station.

Motil said he just chatted about life with his male customer.

The customer probably knew his generosity would shock the young lad, so he hand wrote a note on the back of the receipt that said:

“Thanks for your kind service! You’re doing a great job as a server. I’m not sure what your hopes and dreams are in this life, but I hope this tip helps.”

“My hope is that people [are] more peaceful to each other. The world can be so negative and violent, [so] I commit random acts of kindness…”

Motil said he will use the money towards his college education. We couldn’t begin to imagine how happy this would make his mystery tipper.

*Customer Tips $2,000 Because He Loved the Gumbo!

Tip, gumbo customer loved his meal

Betcha never thought fried chicken, gumbo and an Old Chub Scotch Ale would make a customer so happy he decides to leave a $2,000 tip.

Well it did, and he did. And the staff at Washington D. C’s Blue 44 restaurant is singing the praises of this customer; who has been coming into their eatery for quite some time; but never did this before!

For a bill that came to $93, he tipped them $2,000, and had specific instructions written at the bottom, on who should get what. Chef James Turner got the largest amount of $1,000. Next was the waitress, Laura Dally, who received $500 and even the restaurant owner wasn’t forgotten, Christofer Nardelli, who received $500, too.

Needless to say, this customer will be treated like royalty at this restaurant for life! Heck, he may even get his picture on the wall!

And the staff was speechless when they saw the incredible note at the bottom of the bill.

“This is the kind of stuff you see in the restaurant business that happens to some guy in the Midwest or the West Coast,” Nardelli told the Washington Post. “You think, who are these people who give these extraordinarily generous tips that just made a server or bartender’s day. And then sure enough, it happened to us.”

Nardelli emailed the customer to express his gratitude. He also wanted to know why they had been given this kindness. The customer simply said he appreciates the place he has come to know.

“He said he’s very happy with what we’ve built and that he’s proud to be a customer,“ Nardelli explained.

That has got to make any restaurant owner feel all tingly inside.

Everyone seemed to have a clear idea of what they would do with their unexpected fortune. For the waitress the tip will cover her summer school costs. And owner Nardelli and chef Turner say they both intend to spend the money on their families.

“To have an individual take the time to thank me for something that I put time and effort into is so appreciated,” Chef Turner told WJLA. that it was incredibly touching to have someone express

*Well we’re sure that whomever hacked into the Ashley Madison site has got their attention now. The daredevil(s) threaten to tell all of their users’ business unless AM is taken down post haste!

AM is a site for cheating adults. For those of you among the pure thinkers, they are not talking about cheating the IRS, or even the store up the street. They mean those committing adultery…people with a side piece…the significant others’ significant other.

Yeah, them.

The sites users will be called out if AM is not shut down permanently, threatens the hacker. Continue reading

Donald Trump Resurfaces as Sex Toy (A Butt-Plug to Boot!)

o-TRUMP-BUTT-PLUG-570

*Be honest: How many times have you yelled at the TV, “Donald Trump kiss my ass!”

Well now he can…Sort of.

Thanks to a creative Florida artist named Fernando Sosa, Trump has been memorialized as a butt plug. And believe me, you’ll know it him because not only does it have his face, it also has his puckered lips and that ugly, trademark comb-over.

Now that’s something even your butt might reject! Continue reading

Watch: Brilliant CNN Video Shows Elementary Aged Kids Talking ‘Race’ and ‘Justice System’ (Powerful!)

kids discuss race in America with CNN host

*One of the greatest truths adults should address today may be the fact that they underestimate children. If we just take the time to sit and speak to them, not in childlike gibberish or using a disrespectful tone — but in a way that makes them feel that we “really want to know your thoughts on this” that would go such a long way. But it wouldn’t stop there. We would have to truly listen, because believe it or not, kids know when they are being bulls**ted. So you’d have to let them know that you heard them in your followup. Reiterate some of their points in a way that reaffirms you understand where they are coming from.

Such underrated dialogue could hold some valuable insights to many of the issues that seem to have now become so overwhelmingly complex in America.

Where is all of this coming from?

A CNN video done about a year ago (scroll down), around the time of Eric Garner‘s death, shows a reporter sitting down with a young group of school children to discuss issues in the news at the time: Grand jury’s, the police and unarmed Black men. Continue reading
