Graphic Video of South African Man Dragged By Police Car.

28 Feb

JOHANNESBURG — They bound his hands to the rear of a van, and then sped off, dragging the slender taxi driver along the pavement as a crowd of onlookers shouted in dismay. The man was later found dead. A gut-wrenching video of the scene is all the more disturbing because the men who abused the Mozambican immigrant were uniformed South African police officers and the van was a marked police vehicle. The graphic scenes of the victim struggling for his life shocked a nation long accustomed to reports of police violence. “The visuals of the incident are horrific, disturbing and unacceptable. No human being should be treated in that manner,” said South African President Jacob Zuma. -The Huffington Post

Everyday I look at the news and see horrid violent acts against people in different parts of Africa, it’s way too much. I think too much focus being put on the Middle East. Innocent people are being turmoiled in places like Africa, but the media blankets the issue. I think our government should do more to help the people out there. Our government invested in frivolous things such as $200,000 on “a tattoo removal program” in Mission Hills, California. (endoftheamericandream.com) So I guess that’s more important than saving lives in other countries and preventing genocide.

“I’m not satisfied with the sex, so, I’m telling the police you raped me”

Lynette Lee False Rape Claim

A Tennessee woman is accused of filing a false rape claim against her date because she did not enjoy sex with him.

According to the Huffington Post, Lynette Lee, 27, contacted Clarksville Police on Nov. 23, saying that she had been raped by a man she had met on dating site Meet Me, News Channel 5 reported.

Police brought in the suspect for questioning, who told them that he and Lee had met online, but that the two had engaged only in consensual sex and had made plans to continue seeing each other, according to a release from the Clarksville Police Department.

During a second interview with investigators a few days later, Lee initially repeated her accusations, police say, but then changed her story and admitted she had been lying.

She allegedly told a detective that she had lied about the encounter because she “did not enjoy it,” and it was “bad,” the release states.

Lee has been charged with filing a false report and is being held on $2,000 bond.

I can’t help but laugh. Smh. People are crazy. 

The Real Victim in Kansas City Football Player Murder-Suicide

4 Dec

In case you’ve been under a rock. The story goes, Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher, murdered Kasandra Perkins, his 22-year-old girlfriend and mother of their 3-month-old daughter, before taking his own life in front of his head coach, and linebackers coach at the Chiefs headquarters on Saturday.  According to yahoo news, the couple had argued over relationship and financial issues for months before the tragic events unfolded on Saturday. The couple argued early Saturday morning after Perkins attended a Trey Songz concert and had drinks with friends, while Belcher reportedly “partied” in Kansas City’s Power & Light District. Belcher was angry that Perkins had been out so late and ended up sleeping in his own car. Police woke Belcher up at 7 a.m. and considered him fit to drive himself home. Upon his arrival, Belcher and Perkins argued again, with Belcher’s mother hearing her son say something along the lines of “You can’t talk to me like that” before pulling the trigger.

 

From the Kansas City Star:

Seconds after fatally shooting his longtime girlfriend, Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher leaned over her in their master bathroom, said he was sorry and kissed her on the forehead.

His mother, who heard gunfire as she stood in the kitchen, rushed to her son’s bedroom and watched his remorseful goodbye.

Belcher apologized to his mother, kissed his 3-month-old daughter and fled his rented home in the 5400 block of Crysler Avenue in his Bentley.

 

The report goes on to state that Belcher drove the five miles to the team’s headquarters, where he met Pioli in the parking lot. Belcher exited his vehicle with a gun pointed at his head and told Pioli that he had killed his girlfriend. Belcher, who signed with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Maine, thanked Pioli for all he had done for him and asked that he and owner Clark Hunt look after his daughter.

Pioli and Crennel attempted to dissuade Belcher from committing suicide, but as police closed in, Belcher reportedly said “I got to go…I can’t be here” before kneeling down behind a vehicle, making the sign of the cross and firing a single bullet into his head.

 

The real victim here is is Kasandra. A young woman, young mother, who died because of a senseless selfish act. The media seems to be more focused on Jovan because he was “famous” but he is also a murderer. He [Jovan] could have just sought help, or taken his own life, and not left his new born daughter, parent-less. I feel like his decision was very selfish. I am disgusted by certain blog sites whom are making him seem like a victim in the matter, when he committed a heinous crime. Which will affect a child, for the rest of her life. Knowing her daddy, killed her mom, leaving her alone.

George Zimmerman: Charged with 2nd Degree Murder

14 Nov

George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch captain who admits he shot unarmed Florida teenager Trayvon Martin, was charged with murder today and has been taken into custody. The charge of second degree murder was announced by Florida special prosecutor Angela Corey at a news conference this evening.

If convicted of the charges Zimmerman could face a maximum sentence of life in prison. Zimmerman, 28, a white Hispanic neighborhood watch captain, shot and killed Martin, who was 17 and black, on Feb. 26 after following the teenager for several minutes.

Zimmerman arrived at the Seminole County Jail in a motorcade of black SUVs, armed agents with automatic weapons guarding him at about 8:24 p.m. He is currently being held with no bond status. The next step in the process is first appearance, which is to be held at 1:30 p.m. Thursday. At this time, the judge may address his bond status.

Martin’s parents said at a news conference this evening that were grateful that Zimmerman has been arrested. Tracy Martin, Trayvon’s father, said, however, “This is just the beginning. We have a long way to go.. and we will march and march and march until the right thing is done.”

Zimmerman’s lawyer stated that “He’s troubled by the fact that the state decided to charge him.”. He has nerve.

Sensitive Side of Politics: Obama Addresses His Team in Gratitude, In Tears

9 Nov

The morning after he won re-election, an emotional President Barack Obama credited his youthful staff of several hundred with running a campaign that will “go on in the annals of history.”

I think it was great to show this side of him, and also to address the people who worked hard, campaigned, held signs, and made phone calls on his behalf

 

Why I Support Chick-Fil-A..

2 Aug

As, known, the restaurant known for amazing chicken and delectable waffle fries, Chick-Fil-A, is catching major slack for their stance on gay marriage.

The controversy came to a boil after an interview with the fast food restaurant chain’s president and COO Dan Cathy appeared in The Baptist Press on July 16 and he weighed in with his views on family.

“We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit,” Cathy said. “We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.”

Gay rights activist have since called for the boycott of Chick-Fil-A, and said they would protest in front of stores.

The restaurant has since received support from millions of people. From politicians, to other restaurants, such as Wendy’s.

I support their stance.

You can NOT expect every single person to think the same way you do. Because Chick-Fil-A, does not support gays does not mean that they are bad people. They feel the way they feel. It’s called free speech. It was a right given to us at birth.

It seems that some gay people tend to think like everyone should like they do. False. Everyone is entailed to their own feelings, own morals, and own personal stance on life issues. It does not mean they hate gays, it simply means they believe that the definition of marriage is between a man and a woman. Being gay is a personal choice, key word, personal, I think that it’s way too much being read into it. A personal matter, getting public attention. If you are gay, be happy in your own skin, and the person god made you, every single human being does not have to agree.

I read where a gay activist related this issue to the civil rights era when blacks were discriminated against. STOP. African Americans were not discriminated against because of who they chose to lay down with. They were captured, enslaved for many years, raped, beaten, killed, and still face humility because of the color of their skin. It is completely different and I was so disgusted that someone could relate such.

Since the controversy, Chick-Fil-A, has reported to have record setting sales. So, the boycott seems to be doing the exact opposite. So while all these activists are standing in 90+ degree weather, with the picket signs, and losing their voice, Chick-Fil-A is winning, and still has AMAZING FOOD. Point blank.

Keep the peace, and good waffle fries. 🙂 ♥
