Former Prison Guards-Slash-KKK Members Indicted For Conspiracy to Murder Black Inmate Upon Release

 

(L-R) David Moran, Thomas Driver, Charles Newcomb. Newcomb on the left and Moran on the right. MY QUESTION HOWEVER IS, isn’t the name “Moran’ of a Latin persuasion? And if so, since when are people of this origin allowed to be members of the KKK?

*They teach our children, give us anesthesia before surgery, and apparently, run for office…and even win. I’m talking about Ku Klux Klan members (and their supporters) folks.

Case in point: Three former prison guards in Florida; who also happened to be members of the KKK, were tricked during an elaborate sting into thinking that the Black man they were plotting to murder upon his release, had already been killed.

Now we know these “members” in general are not smart people, so it probably wasn’t a difficult task to bamboozle them.

But I’m getting ahead of myself.

The murder plot involving Elliot Moran, 49, and Charles Thomas Newcomb, 45, came about after a third guard, 27-year-old Thomas Jordan Driver (another Klan member), was bitten during a fight with the inmate. The three guards believed the inmate was infected with HIV and hepatitis and enlisted the services of an FBI informant to murder the man. Continue reading

Nail Ricochets Into Man’s Heart, He Drives Himself to Hospital, Parks Car and Walks In to ER (Watch)

*If you never subscribed to the belief that if it ain’t your time to die, no matter what happens, you just ain’t gonna go — well, Doug Bergeson of Wisconsin has proof that should leave no doubt.

Bergeson had been working on framing in a fireplace at his home near Peshtigo in northeast Wisconsin, when his nail gun accidentally fired, and a nail ricocheted off a piece of wood and went straight into his chest.

Now that right there could’ve spelled the end, but it was obviously NOT time for the man to go.

If doesn’t even sound like he freaked out at all. Instead, he reportedly walked calmly to his truck (arguably in shock), got in and drove himself to the hospital. He then parked his pickup truck in the lot and walked into the emergency room.

I can only imagine other people in the waiting room, seeing him, mouths agape, stepping out of the way to allow him access to the front of the line.

“Please, you go ahead sir. I can wait.”

Canine Dispute: Judge Judy Lets Dog Loose in Court, He Runs to ‘True’ Owner (Video Goes Viral!)

 

*In a case of whose dog is it, a woman and a man are fighting over ownership of a cute little poodle. In a recent episode of ‘Judge Judy,’ TV magistrate Judith Sheindlin put her no nonsense approach to the test…again.

A video recap shows a woman who says she legally purchased the dog, and a male opposing litigant who says the dog is his. In an attempt to get to the bottom of this quickly, Judy tells a woman in the court to bring the little dog in.

She does so, amidst the oohs and aahs from people seated in the courtroom.

‘Put the dog down’ the judge commands. Continue reading

If You ‘Loved Lucy’ Here’s Some Never Heard Before Fun Facts You’ll Adore!

I Love Lucy stars Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball

*I Love Lucy was one of the funniest TV shows ever. The black-and-white series originally ran from October 15, 1951 to May 6, 1957 on CBS and it was the first scripted television show shot on 35mm film before a live studio audience. The show garnered five Emmys.

According to FilmMakerIQ.com each show included 300 viewers from the first shoot until the last, and there were many “one take” scenes.

Later, Desi Arnaz, the real life husband of Lucille Ball, revealed the comedic actress works better when real people are watching her performance. 

Everyone watched I Love Lucy — no matter what race or culture — we loved the shenanigans of that crazy redhead and the frustrations and gentle reprimands of her handsome, Latin musician-husband, Ricky Ricardo.

But did you know that ‘Ricky Ricardo’ was not the original name the network came up with for Lucy’s hubby?

Uh-uh. They had something else in mind.

Do you think we would’ve felt the same about this Latin lover if his character was named Larry Lopez?

Let me get that for you…

Heck no!

Here’s some more never heard before FUN FACTS about ‘I Love Lucy’ and its incredible cast! Continue reading

Family Burying Patriarch Horrified When They Spot A ‘Decaying Foot’ in the Ground

*Ah damn. What a deal breaker. Wait! This is one deal you can’t break. Grandpa has got to be buried; and at this point its gotta be down there. But who in the world can explain why, as the casket is being lowered into the ground, this grieving family had to see someone’s decaying foot sticking out of the dirt?

…and here’s one for ya, why wasn’t the foot in a coffin?

Oh! The questions this situation brings to mind are endless. But here’s the story.

Mr. Cleveland Butler had suffered a fatal stroke in the Brooklyn nursing home where he resided. A a brief Celebration of Life ceremony had taken place at the Robeson and Brown Funeral Home in Bed-Stuy. But when the family of the 85-year-old decedent was completing the burial process in New Jersey at Mount Holiness Memorial Park, no one could have warned them about what was about to happen. 

The horrifying body part was discovered as the beautifully flowered blue casket was being lowered. Sandra Butler, daughter of the patriarch, spoke to the Daily News.

“This was a very traumatizing situation, first dealing with losing my father and then this,” she said.

“I couldn’t even look at it. It was too much and no one said anything to us. It was like business as usual for them. They just dumped the dirt in the plot like it was normal, like it’s nothing to them.”

Dang! You mean they see this stuff EVERY DAY??? Continue reading

What!? I Can Get Rid of This ‘Tire Around My Tummy’ Without Exercise or Diet? (Watch)

*Hear ye! Hear ye! There is a woman who was once skeptical about body contouring; but now, after getting it done first hand, swears by it. No more tire around the tummy. No more arms that wave when you do. No more bulk on the thighs.

And because of BET FB Live, well, a recording of it, we can watch the whole procedure.

Sculpt away, I say!

So this woman, what’s her name again? I don’t know and it doesn’t matter, got to ask Dr.  Arash Akhavan at the Dermatology & Laser Group, and a leader in his field, many of the questions we have wondered about when it comes to this new type of non-invasive surgery. With that, she offers “Everything you need to know about body sculpting.”

According to Dr. Akhavan, who is based in New York City: 

“Basically everything over the last, I would say, five years, has been moving toward non-invasive stuff such as body contouring and away from liposuction. With liposuction you’re taking weeks off, and it’s taking months to see any sort of benefits, and then there’s the risk of surgery, scarring and all of that. With the non-invasive things, you do the procedure, there’s no anesthesia, there’s no cuts on your skin and the results usually come in within a couple of months,” Dr. Akhavan said. 

So in the video we see him applying the laser to the “problem area” the woman has designated for target. He has already explained to her that she won’t feel any “excruciating pain” but she will have, throughout the 25-minute-procedure, warm sensations that may be a bit uncomfortable; followed by a cooling sensation.
