|You think Darren Wilson will join Loserville as a contributor for stories about American crime?|
"I, Darren Wilson, hereby resign my commission as a police officer with the City of Ferguson effective immediately. I have been told that my continued employment may put the residents and police officers of the City of Ferguson at risk, which is a circumstance that I cannot allow. For obvious reasons, I wanted to wait until the grand jury made their decision before I officially made my decision to resign. It was my hope to continue in police work, but the safety of other police officers and the community are of paramount importance to me. It is my hope that my resignation will allow the community to heal. I would like to thank all of my supporters and fellow officers throughout this process."
The controversial figure in the shooting of Michael Brown has resigned from the Ferguson police department. Darren Wilson will resign to ease the tension that's risen since he was not indicted in the fatal shooting of the unarmed teen.
Wilson will be a private citizen.
His supporters some being White extremists will offer him and his new family their donations which by most estimates will be $790,000. He, his new wife (by whom is expecting) will now have to be out of the spotlight.
The Associated Press reports that Wilson, 28, has been on administrative leave since the shooting on Aug. 9. His resignation was announced Saturday by one of his attorneys, Neil Bruntrager. The resignation is effective immediately, Bruntrager said.
A grand jury spent more than three months reviewing evidence in the case before declining in November to issue any charges against Wilson. He told jurors that he feared for his life when Brown hit him and reached for his gun.
|Not a criminal.|
The U.S. Justice Department is still conducting a civil rights investigation into the shooting and a separate probe of police department practices.
The shooting struck up a national debate about race and police power.
After the shooting, Wilson spent months in hiding and made no public statements. He broke his silence after the grand jury decision, telling ABC News that he could not have done anything differently in the encounter with Brown.
Wilson said he has a clean conscience because "I know I did my job right." Brown's shooting was the first time he fired his gun on the job, he said.
Asked whether the encounter would have unfolded the same way if Brown had been white, Wilson said yes.
Wilson began his career in nearby Jennings before moving to the Ferguson job a few years ago. He had no previous complaints against him and a good career record, according to Police Chief Thomas Jackson, who called Wilson "an excellent police officer."
A few months before the shooting, Wilson had received a commendation for detaining a suspect in a drug case.
Will Darren Wilson join the folks over at Loserville?
I want to make clear to Fred101, conservatives, white extremists and those who support Wilson.
This description of Michael Brown by those in the junk food media was totally bias. This teen lived with both parents. Granted that his mother married another man, he had a two parent home. He was enjoying summer like most young adults out of high school. He graduated from high school. He was going to college to become a productive member of society. Everyone believes that he "robbed" a store of a few cigars. Everyone believes that he "attacked" the officer.
One thing that bothers me is the fact that he's 6'4" and Wilson was 6'4".
From a previous video that was posted by a resident of St. Louis, shows the former Ferguson officer arresting a filmmaker. Wilson telling the filmmaker that he's going to get arrested for taping him.
It's perfectly legal to record police officers while on duty. They can't impede on the right of a citizen filming.
And for Wilson to be that dumb not to have a vehicle with a dash camera only proves that he can spin a story and the pro-WHITE supporters will eat it up.
|Harris County deputy charged with firing on a woman in an apparent road rage incident.|
Anonymous comments will be deleted. No exceptions.
The road rage incident that lead to a shooting. An off duty cop in Texas is getting an aggravated assault charge for shooting a woman after she cut him off and gave him the finger.
Outside of Houston, Texas on the South Loop (Interstate 610), Harris County Deputy Constable Kenneth Caplan got charged for firing his gun into the vehicle grazing a woman in the head.
The woman, whose name was not released by the station is truly blessed that she didn't substain any serious injuries from this encounter.
"I'm worried that since he's a cop, they're going to let him off easy," said the woman.
Click2Houston reports that the victim was traveling on the 610 South Loop near Stella Link during the evening rush hour commute on Nov. 11.
She said she was driving her car when she was cut off, then honked her horn and tried to get around the other driver. That action nearly cost the woman her life.
"I honestly got a taste of death. My heart was slowing down and I couldn't really breathe," she said.
The other driver, now identified as Caplan, drove alongside her, rolled his window down, pointed his weapon and opened fire, investigators said.
"I just started crying because I knew I was going to die," said the victim. "I wanted to call my mom to tell her I love you."
Caplan and his female passenger then fled the scene.
Investigators said the female passenger leaned back in her seat while Caplan shot out the window.
"He was aiming at me and I thought he was going to cuss me out. It didn't register that I was, you know, going to get shot," said the victim. "The blood was in between my nails, just crazy blood, and all over my cellphone, just covered."
The bullet went through the woman's drivers side window and grazed her on the left side of the head.
She pulled over onto the freeway shoulder and called for help.
Emergency crews arrived and transported her to Memorial Hermann Hospital for treatment. The victim survived her injuries.
"The doctor told me your case in one in a million. I don't ever see this," she said.
Evidence led investigators to identify Caplan, who was in law enforcement, as the suspect.
"I hope he gets what he deserves because I want him off the streets," said the victim.
The Harris County Constable's Office, Precinct 6, cooperated with the investigation, which was being led by the Houston Police Department's Homicide Division.
Caplan was arrested by HPD on Wednesday.
Once again, anonymous comments are deleted. No exceptions.
At first, I thought this was a joke. Nope, it's not a joke and this really happened.
Last month, an 85-year old was seeking a relationship with two 17-year old sisters. He was looking for companionship and probably a little more than the usual. He's not going to be charged for a crime because of its consent law. However, offering an underage individual alcohol may net some charges.
But after a dinner and ride to his expensive home, the teens beat him and tied up. They robbed him of his properties and took off. They believed that the victim would have been too embarrassed to call the law.
They thought wrong.
Even though in New York the legal consent of sexual is 17 years old,, this man should have never expected much from teenagers. He was thinking that he would have a tryst with twins. No, you looking forward to getting cleaned out.
Now onto the issue the racist right whines about. Black on White crime. The victim was White and the suspects were Black.
Yeah, these women Shalaine and Shaina Foster are being charged with kidnapping, larceny, aggravated assault by intent of robbery. The twins could get three nickels in the iron college if found guilty.
The victim's name was released. He is Paul Aronson and I am guessing that this situation may be a warning to older men looking for someone younger to have sex with.
The trio dined at an "expensive restaurant" and then Aronson invited them back to his apartment for a drink, court documents said.
“He asked to do things I wasn't going to do,” she told Detective Darryl Ng. “He is ugly, old and disgusting. I tied him up. I took his money and left. He was starting to creep me out.”

|The nation third largest retailer is going out like the cassette tape.|
I was listening to the Associated Press radio reports this morning and I heard something that had me shaking my head. I never thought I would say this, but I have this feeling that 2015 will not be a good year for the "Blue Light Specials"
I predict in five years, the nation's discount department store Kmart will be a part of American history. It will be on the way out like most popular retailers that went out of business during its downward spiral. The nation's third largest discount retailer will be gone. Leaving Walmart and Target as the only discount retailers in the world.
Kmart is a nationwide retailer of electronics, toys, clothing, bedding, furniture and home decor.
The retailer was founded by Sebastian S. Kresge. When he passed away in 1966, his company joined the hyperstore movement as Kmart in 1977. It was based in Detroit's suburb of Troy until 2005.
It moved to Hoffman Estates, Illinois in 2006 when Sears found some ounce of hope for Kmart.
|In the Dayton, Ohio suburb of Trotwood, Kmart closed in 2013. The suburb is dubbed a "ghost town" for the massive departure of big box stores and the demise of the Salem Mall, Dayton's first indoor shopping center.|
I guess the merger isn't helping the struggling retailer. Sears Holding Group which owns Sears and Kmart are seeing the shoppers not interested in the deals they're offering.
Kmart is the only retailer that still advocates layaway.
In my opinion, the average Kmart is like a hot mess. The store looks "dirty" but at least some of their workers are friendly at best. Cleanliness is the first thing most shoppers see when they enter a Kmart.
If they see dirty floors, damaged products, potential opportunities for theft, poor lighting, potholes in the parking lot and limited selection of products, shoppers turn away. That is a fact.
I live in Dayton, Ohio. There's four locations in Englewood, Beavercreek, Riverside and Springboro. These are the remaining locations in the metro area.
They're on the verge of shutting down the remaining stores in the area. I am guessing Englewood and Riverside are next on the list of stores on the close.
Kmart recently closed the Trotwood store in 2013 and Fairborn store in 2014.
Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving) is a major shopping day for Americans. The retailers are hoping to see the BLACK in sales. That usually means that a healthy economy comes from families shopping at malls, discount stores, car dealerships and even local businesses.
The malls, Kmart, Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Home Depot, Loews, and other big box stores depend on the Black Friday sales. If they can have a healthy Black Friday, they can be motivated to opening up potential stores in other areas. They can hire more employees and offer more deals.
This is a nightmare if a retailer fails to generate Black Friday success.
If that's not capitalism, then I don't know what I can tell ya!
Okay, what's your thoughts on this?

|If you're Black man playing with a gun, you're likely going to get shot.|
Again, don't hold your breathe. Most Black Americans figured since the Michael Brown shooting, this incident in Cleveland will only result in the two officers walking free. They were responsible for shooting a 12 year old boy on Saturday. They responded to a call of the child who was playing with a gun. According to the White caller Tamir Rice was holding a toy gun and "caused a panic".
After all, if Tamir Rice was in Walmart or walking on a neighborhood street, he at least would have been shot at a distance than at close range.
Blacks have more distrust for law enforcement. Darren Wilson can freely live his life as a husband, father and private citizen. It's a damn shame that the shooters live while Michael Brown, John Crawford III, Tamir Rice, Darrien Hunt, and Trayvon Martin are dead.
The White conservative extremist's perception of young Black males and even Black professionals is basically simple: Either the shooting victim was:
B) OBAMA'S SON
F) ALL OF THE ABOVE
Pick your answer.
Now here's a link from Facebook. This is coming from Conservative Daily, a website that follows news from the racist right prospective. Some of the comments from the link will contain offensive language.
Wednesday, November 26, 2014
|Tamir Rice was shot by Cleveland Police after they believed that he was holding a firearm. Turns out that it was a toy.|
Unrest continues in Ferguson. The racial divide has gotten worse. White America is totally pissed at President Barack Obama. I mean 3 out of 10 White voters support the president. Roughly 27% support the president. The sharp divide helped the Republicans win control of Congress.
The Republicans seeking more opportunity. After all they've won the year. With all the talk of Ebola, ISIS, Michael Brown and presidential executive orders being spin by the racist right and those in the junk food media, White folks don't like it when Obama throws his weight into these issues.
Now the president will now be driven into another controversy. The shooting of Tamir Rice, a 12 year old boy who was playing with a pellet gun getting gunned down by Cleveland Police.
Rookie officer Timothy Loehmann fired the shots the moment he exited his vehicle.
The video is disturbing. In the video, Rice is walking around playing with the pellet gun. About a few minutes later the child is sitting at a gazebo at the West Boulevard Cudell Community Center. In about twenty seconds, the Cleveland police arrive and within the first second of arrival, the child goes down.
The officer along with veteran partner Frank Garmack were placed on administrative leave pending an investigation.
Now in the wake of the Ferguson decision, how much you bet that the officers will walk?
Second, will the junk food media look into what he's done in his short life?
Will they associate family, friends, a civil rights activist, or the president into this controversy?
Will the racist right call him either a thug or a NIGGER?
And with that being said, here's the video.
|Thrift store rapper Raymond "Benzino" Scott continues his path to failure.|
He's just as worse as perennial loser Mitt Romney. He just won't crawl under that rock and die.
I've heard that he's been fired out the cannon after getting into a fight with Stevie J from Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta. VH1 the graveyard for washed up entertainers has reality shows out the wazoo.
The Love & Hip-Hop series is popular and I am guessing that even this washed up rapper was helping the program a little bit.
TMZ reports that the washed up rapper got into a heated confrontation with Stevie J.
TMZ broke the story ... the washed up rapper got the ax right after the brawl on the reunion taping, which sent people to the hospital and resulted in criminal charges filed against Joseline Hernandez.
Stevie J tells TMZ ... "[That fool] wouldn't let it go" ... he went on a campaign of terror, threatening the lives of him and Joseline, producers and other staffers. Stevie tells us, "He said flat out he was going to kill us."
The threats were too much for VH1 and we're told that's why Benzino was banished.
But the washed up rapper tells us, "Stevie J is a habitual liar and VH1 has never given me a reason for being fired."
The washed up rapper thinks this is all about star power and he's the scapegoat because "They wanted to keep the crackhead whore."
|50 Cent and XXL mocked the washed up rapper for using his child to jump start an already terminated rap career.|
Most notably he's bragged about banging some of the baddest bitches in the music industry. Of course most women have denied ever sleeping with him.
This man is so irritating I had to find a place for him. He is probably one of the reasons why the music industry is struggling. He managed to run The Source, the country's most popular hip-hop magazine into the ground. Matter of fact, it's still in the ground and trying to survive. It went through bankruptcy proceedings when he and owner Dave Mays blew money fast.
It's well known that since the late 1980s, Harvard educated White man Dave Mays helped this washed up rapper promote his failed albums, his failed groups, his failed businesses and his feud with Eminem.
He used the magazine to fight Eminem, one of the greatest rapper ever. All because he was the only White rapper who managed to crossover to mainstream success. His feud with Eminem led to Interscope pulling advertising out of The Source.
Again, I was once a subscriber to The Source Magazine. The magazine was delivered to my home without problems. When I stopped getting my magazine during the third year, I was starting to have issues with it. I wrote letters, called The Source and even voice my opinion online. But nothing came.
I got the run around. When it was told that the magazine was suffering in sales because of the feud with Eminem, people started flocking to XXL Magazine. Now XXL Magazine is the country's most read hip-hop magazine. The Source sold off its franchising to the shareholders of Black Enterprises.
The shareholders ended up terminating Dave Mays and that washed up rapper. They ended up starting up Hip-Hop Weekly. And yes they still are blowing money fast.
The washed up rapper was shot in his hometown of Boston back in March. His own nephew was pissed that the washed up rapper stalled his business deal. He put a couple of slugs into the rapper's arm and was eventually caught.
This feud happened on the day the rapper's mother (nephew's grandmother) was to be buried.
The washed up rapper's nephew Gai Scott will probably get 25 in the iron college for the felonious assault with a firearm.

|Do you see any broken skin or broken eye socket?|
I want to send my condolences to all victims of gun violence. From Sandy Hook, Aurora, Columbine, Tuscon, Virginia Tech, Boston Marathon, and Chicago.
The United States of America is the leader of death by gun! You can't tell me nothing about how a gun can protect your family, property and your life when you're caught off guard like the concealed carry individual who was gunned down by two White extremists in Las Vegas this year. He wanted to be a hero and lost his life in an attempt to stop them.
Now with that being said, I want to thank you to S. Baldwin for allowing me to vent off about this.
You know that often I've talked about Black America and the roads we've crossed. Again, I am working on hopping back on YouTube this coming month to do one video. It's entitled Black Men vs, Niggas: Salvation. It will be done in December.
Next, I will hope that this situation in Ferguson will inspire more demonstrations. The demonstrations will drive U.S. law enforcement to change their ways. Hoping this movement could strike a nerve in the next elections.
This officer got an opportunity to tell his side of the story. Darren Wilson is willing to his side. He won the night by not being indicted. He also went into the situation by addressing it with no remorse for his actions.
He say that Michael Brown was acting demonic and had the body mass like Hulk Hogan.
The junk food media is hoping to get the vindicated Darren Wilson's side of the story. Of course, while he talks, Ferguson continues another day of unrest. The grand jury decision on Monday was no probable cause for indictment.
This motherfucker goes to ABC News George Stephanopoulos to tell his side of the story.
One is to say that I'm not a happy camper on the decision. I feel that every Black man's life is worthless according to those in law enforcement and those White conservative extremists.
This motherfucker and those who support him are sparking a flame.
I used to think that we are coming together in the age of Obama. This incident and many others in America made me more cautious about White people. Am I am more angry with the White man?
No. Well maybe.
Have you ever heard a person say that Barack Obama being in the White House benefits Blacks and Hispanics more than Whites?
Yeah, I've heard it too many times. I am tired of it.
I don't think all White people are evil or all Black people are evil. We're human beings. This is very passionate. I mean as Americans, we're entitled to be who we are. And even for those who are a part of the racist right, they can express their thoughts. Unfortunately, the spark is growing and it's about to light up across the country.
We live in the greatest (well a decent) country. I mean this is an opportunity to share your thoughts on the Michael Brown shooting, the Darren Wilson verdict and the aftermath.
I would love to hear that a White unarmed teen was killed by law enforcement. I would love to hear that the officer was Black. I would love to hear the junk food media go off the cuff with trying to look into his social networks, his previous encounters with individuals, possible criminal record and the narrative of this White on White or White on Black crime nonsense.
|Pictures of no broken eye socket. No bloody face.|
The gloating of the racist right begins today. White conservative extremists flock to the websites of their choosing to post their "ah ha" moments. "NIGGER" is expected from these extremists.
The racist right and their allies being the Republican Party will celebrate the decision as a victory for all White police officers serving their communities against them "THUGS".
Noticing that "THUG" is becoming the new NIGGER.
All they care about is this being a defeat for President Barack Obama, the family of Michael Brown, the family of Trayvon Martin, the Black community, Attorney General Eric Holder and the Democratic Party.
What pisses me off is the false comparisons by White extremists. They figure that an officer shooting an unarmed teen is equal to Black on Black crime. A black criminal will probably be caught within a few months. White criminals will be on the loose for years before they're caught.
Okay, the Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson was not indicted in the shooting of unarmed teen Michael Brown. The St. Louis County prosecutor does a document dump and the testimony was released. It's also noted that Wilson has no regrets for this. It appears that he got hitched last month.
The verdict of being not indicted has created such an uproar, the president, Governor Jay Nixon (D-MO), and civil rights leaders pleas for calm are ignored.
Wilson stated that in his testimony, he thought that Michael Brown look like a demon and had the strength of "Hulk Hogan". He didn't use the non-lethal forces. The pepper spray, the taser and the baton weren't used in this. The firearm was.
Unarmed teen gets gunned down and the shooter walks. White conservative extremists are gloating.
Now every Black man in America from the president down to me are now looked upon by the WHITE EXTREMISTS as THUGS.

|The racist right will claim the president advocated riots.|
We are a nation built on the rule of law. There are Americans who agree with it, and there's some who aren't in supported of it. I join with Michael Brown's family in urging Americans practice peace and restraint in the wake of this decision.
President Barack Obama delivers his statement on the decision.
Unfortunately, there's reports of protesters turning over a police vehicle.
|Wilson was found not guilty.|
The decision for the controversial shooting of Michael Brown stands that Ferguson officer Darren Wilson is not guilty. So no charges in the fatal shooting.
St. Louis County prosecutor Robert McCulloch delivers the news to the nation.
The officer Darren Wilson will walk.
This controversy has created some of the most contiguous debate over racial profiling, police brutality and perception. Again dividing among race, politics, and social class.
We will continue as developments shall follow.
NO COMMENTS WILL BE ALLOWED FOR THIS.
STAYED TUNED FOR MY HONEST OPINION ON THIS!
|Florida woman may be out of the iron college.|
The Florida woman who used the stand your ground defense in a high profile case will finish her term. She was sentenced to three years in the iron college.
While on time out at home, Marissa Alexander agreed to a plea deal. She will admit guilt in the shooting but had to denounce the notion that "stand your ground" played a role.
The case has gained some public recognition because of the comparisons made to the widely covered George Zimmerman case, in which Zimmerman was prosecuted for the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin. Both cases were prosecuted by Florida State Prosecutor, Angela Corey, and, in both cases, Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law was implicated.
Buzzfeed reports Marissa Alexander, 31,may be on home time out after the remaining 65 days are fulfilled.
Alexander was charged after a 2010 altercation with Rico Gray, her estranged husband, during which she said she fired a “warning shot” into the ceiling with a legal firearm after he threatened her in their house.
In 2012, a Duval County jury initially found Alexander guilty on three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to harm and she was sentenced to 20 years. During the trial, Alexander claimed self-defense and rejected a plea agreement similar to the one she signed on Monday.
Before the trial, Gray admitted in a sworn statement that he was abusive to Alexander, calling her a “whore” and a “bitch,” and “hitting her in the mouth” because she wouldn't “shut up.”
Gray also admitted to an abusive past in his deposition. “I got five baby mamas and I put my hands on every last one of them except one,” Gray said.
In a statement released after she was found guilty, Alexander detailed the events of Aug. 1, 2010. She said that she fired the gun after Gray charged at her and yelled, “Bitch, I will kill you!” But the judge denied her “stand your ground” motion, saying Alexander could have exited the house instead of shooting.
Prosecutor Angela Corey also argued in court that Alexander was “angry” but “not in fear”.
During her appeal in July 2014, Alexander entered a new motion for a “stand your ground” hearing that was denied by the court.
This week, facing a new trial that could have led to 60 years in the iron college, Alexander agreed to the plea bargain, avoiding a mandatory 20-year term for the deadly weapon charge. She will likely be released on Jan. 27, 2015, after which she will serve two years of time out at home.
Guarded that if she causes one felony, it's back to the iron college.
I hope the best for Marissa Alexander. She hopefully rebound and move forward. We wish her well on her journey.
|Agitator says that Blacks kills more people than anyone else.|
The failed 2008 presidential candidate has his nerve. Mr. 9/11 himself, Rudy Giuliani, former New York City mayor got his talking points straight off the racist right web,
In a heated debate on GOP Sundays with Dr. Michael Eric Dyson, Mr. 9/11 caused a stir.
The racist right was cheering the statements made by Mr. 9/11.
GOP Sundays focused on the president's immigration actions, the Cosby scandal and the looming decision by a grand jury in Ferguson, Missouri, the president, Stallmigo Ted Cruz (R-TX), Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) all had an opportunity to discuss these issues.
After they exit the stage, here comes the agitators. Giuliani, who makes a living selling LifeLock comes to GOP Sundays to wank off about black-on-black crime. He appears on Meet The Press.
He has the guts to say “Ninety-three percent of blacks are killed by other blacks. I would like to see the attention paid to that that you are paying to this.”
That led to a heated Obama News contributor Dyson to disspell the false equivalency.
“Black people who kill black people go to jail,” Dyson said. “White people who are policemen who kill black people do not go to jail.”
Chuck Todd is testing the waters and hoping he doesn't drown in them. The ratings from NBC News is sinking badly. Face The Nation is on the rise and This Week is in striking distance. It seems like the best way to keep relevant is bring on agitators, washed up politicians, unaccomplished politicians and policy wonks,
The racist right of course will talk about it. They will welcome Mr. 9/11 with open arms on their programs. They have no shame.
The decision could come any day now. Darren Wilson's fate rest on the decision.
|Chuck Hagel is resigning from the Defense.|
The Secretary of Defense is resigning CNN confirms. The Associated Press reports that Chuck Hagel has submitted his resignation to President Barack Obama. He will stay on until the inept Senate confirms a successor.
Chuck Hagel who has been with Obama for a year has faced criticism over the handling of foreign terrorist groups like the Islamic State taking its reign in Iraq and Syria. Hagel is the first senior Obama adviser to leave the administration following the sweeping losses in the midterm elections.
Republicans who won control of Congress this month vow to fight and stall nominations because their upset the president promised executive order to ease regulations on immigration.
The official said both Hagel and Obama "determined that it was time for new leadership in the Pentagon," adding that they had been discussing the matter over a period of several weeks.
Obama was to announce Hagel's resignation Monday. The president is not expected to nominate a new Pentagon chief Monday, according to one official.
The senior defense officials insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter by name ahead of Obama's official announcement.
Hagel is a Republican who served as senator from Nebraska and became a critic of U.S. involvement in Iraq. Obama nominated him to succeed Leon Panetta as Defense Secretary in his second term.
Hagel served in the Vietnam War and received two Purple Hearts.

|Cleveland police kill a teen who was playing legally with an airsoft pellet gun.|
And the beat goes on!
We here at Journal de la Reyna send our condolences to the family of Tamir Rice.
As the nation watches the outcome of Ferguson, the Cleveland Police are under fire for shooting a juvenile who was playing with an Airsoft pellet gun.
A White man calls the dispatch on a teen playing with a gun. The officers respond with deadly response.
The law reports that the teen wasn't pointing the weapon at the officers.
There will be a federal investigation and disciplinary action to the first year officer and a veteran officer. They are on administrated leave after this. The officers were called to West Boulevard on reports of a child playing with a gun. Some have also claimed that the firearm could be "fake". The law responded accordingly. The officers claimed that they ordered the teen to drop the weapon. According to the officers they saw the teen reach into his waist and the officer (first year) fired two slugs into the child.
|Cleveland police facing a huge controversy after a child was killed.|
Here's what happens when police officers shoot unarmed or mistaken as suspects. If they're Black shooting victims by law enforcement, the media releases the name. Then of course, the outrage from the political arm chair assholes. Then the racial extremists who have the audacity to label the dead a "thug" or a "nigger".
Can't wait to hear what the conservative agitators say about this situation!
Fred 101, are you going to claim that the boy was assaulting an officer?
Listen carefully, Fred 101, The teen didn't point the firearm or made any menacing moves toward the officers.
I mean they shot the teen at a distance. He probably didn't even know how serious the police were.
I am guessing you're taking your talking points from one of those shitholes.
Anyway the racist right will raise the questions about the teen having a criminal record. They can't go a day without searching the social networks for "damning evidence".
With all these relaxed gun laws, the boy was clearly in legal right to have a BB gun. I mean it wasn't near a school zone. Just a nice Saturday afternoon when this happened.
I am surprised that the law was even called. The teen didn't attack anyone with the firearm. He was on a swing. Again he did not point a firearm at the law.
Similar incident happened in August when John Crawford was killed by Beavercreek officers. The officers responded to a man who carrying a firearm inside a Walmart. He was killed by Officer Sean Williams. The video shows that the officer shot Crawford from a distance while he was holding an airsoft pellet gun. He was on the phone at the time of this shooting.
|Stallmigos: Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rand Paul (R-KY).|
I am getting tired of people like Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and other unaccomplished lawmakers making appearances on GOP Sundays bitching and whining about President Barack Obama.
The president has given the Congress time to pass immigration reform. Unfortunately the Senate bill is dead and the House isn't taking up the issue. The president decided to go forth with executive action to curb some of the deportations of undocumented workers.
This has gotten the racist right pissed off. The Republicans are scrambling for ways to block the president. The president gave a stern response. Pass a bipartisan bill and I'll sign it.
That fell on deaf ears. So on GOP Sundays, Republicans got an opportunity to respond back.
Send Cruz and Paul to the television and radio for another round of name calling and idle threats.
The Stallmigos are thinking about shutting down the government again!
These two insurgent politicians have no legislative accomplishments but yet appeared on television and radio over 100 times. It's really starting to bug me that they book these lawmakers on and they offer nothing but conflict whenever they are given airtime.
I think that these two in particular are thinking about running for president.
Lord knows that if the country could survive a presidency from these two jackasses.
I would hate to see how the media would treat them. After all, the media has given them the opportunity to rant and rave about the president being an emperor and shredding the Constitution.
Paul came to office in 2010. He and Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY, Majority Leader designate) have a somewhat testy friendship.
Cruz came into office in 2012. He got the ground running after being sworn in. He's been a thorn in the ass of both the president and the Republicans. He was responsible for the government shutdown of 2013. He makes no bones about being idolized like Jesse Helms.
Now that Representative Tom Cotton (R-AR), Representative Cory Gardner (R-CO), Joni Ernst, and Thom Tillis are jumping into the party, one could hope that the government will eventually work with the president.
President Barack Obama has ignored Cruz and Paul. The president thinks that some of the Republicans are getting tired of Paul and Cruz hogging up the spotlight.
Do you believe they are running for president? And if so, would you support these two despite them having no legislative accomplishments since being elected?
|DC Councilman and former mayor Marion Barry passed away.|
Today it was announced that former Washington, DC mayor Marion Barry passed away overnight.
We here at Journal de la Reyna send our condolences to the family of Barry.
Barry, a colorful and yet troubled individual in the 1990s. He was caught smoking crack cocaine while in office. While in prison, he turned around his behavior. He wrote booLike the former mayor of Toronto, Barry made things work in Washington, DC during the 1990s. But his actions were mired in controversy. For you see lawmakers in Washington hated him.
Barry was a council ward during his final years.
|The infamous crack smoking tape. The FBI set up a sting operation to catch the mayor.|
Barry came to national prominence as mayor of the national capital, the first prominent civil-rights activist to become chief executive of a major American city; he gave the presidential nomination speech for Jesse Jackson at the 1984 Democratic National Convention.
His celebrity transformed into international notoriety in January 1990, when he was videotaped smoking crack cocaine and arrested by FBI officials on drug charges. The arrest and subsequent trial precluded Barry seeking re-election, and he served six months in a federal prison. After his release, however, he was elected to the DC City Council in 1992 and ultimately returned to the mayoralty in 1994, serving from 1995 to 1999.
Despite his history of political and legal controversies, Barry was a popular and influential figure in the local political scene of Washington, D.C. The alternative weekly Washington City Paper nicknamed him "Mayor for life," a designation that remained long after Barry left the mayoralty.
The Washington Post has stated that "to understand the District of Columbia, one must understand Marion Barry.

|The president and Congress hear the cries. The president acts out on his word. Republicans vow to fight.|
Republicans vow to fight the president every step of the way. During this lame duck session of Congress, the outgoing Democrats are probably going to the networks or private practice. Some may even jump onto the agitator radio circuit.
President Barack Obama delivered his statements Thursday. He told the nation that he's going to enact executive orders in the wake of the failure to pass comprehensive immigration reform.
Immigration advocates and some undocumented workers and their families are praising this decision.
Tonight the president announced his plans to use his executive action to ease up on deportation.
This plan will assist about 1/3 of the undocumented migrants who already been in the country for nearly five years will be exempted. This is brought
The Benghazi select committee spurred by conservative agitators and Republican lawmakers netted again no fault towards the president, Hillary Clinton and CIA.
The Benghazi attack happened on September 11, 2012 when four Americans were killed after a militant group run up on a CIA-sponsored consulate. They used the cover of an anti-Muslim movie to draw an attack on the facility. The mastermind is held in American custody. The racist right has used this as a tool to Republicans win control of Congress. They were trying to find outrageous conspiracies and discredited individuals as
The Ferguson decision will be coming soon and the president urges calm to the residents of the metro St. Louis area.
The nation awaits to hear the fate of the Ferguson officer Darren Wilson.

|Wilson wants a normal life.|
As the nation waits for the grand jury decision on the fate of Ferguson officer Darren Wilson, many communities are planning for riot control and the possibility of race incited violence.
The racist right is hoping that Blacks go bananas and tear up the towns and suburbs.
Obviously the lines are drawn and people have already made their minds up on the situation.
Somehow I am thinking the Zimmerman verdict all over again.
CNN reports that Wilson may resign after this. He fears that if he stayed on the Ferguson Police force the residents are going to revolt. Wilson still maintains that he done nothing wrong but knows that the impact is felt and he does have some ounce of remorse to the family.
While Wilson has told associates he would resign to help ease pressure and protect his fellow officers, he has expressed concern about resigning while the grand jury was still hearing evidence for fear it would appear he was admitting fault.
|Again a dead body can't tell a tale.|
The officer's supporters have claimed Wilson fired only in self-defense, pointing to witness testimony and leaked grand jury documents that suggest Brown might have attacked Wilson, struggled for his gun and perhaps charged the officer moments later.
Brown's backers have been likewise adamant in blaming Wilson, claiming the officer shot a young man who, according to some accounts, was holding up his hands in surrender.
This dispute as to what happened at that crucial moment, the handing of the investigation from the outset and the fact that charges were not brought against Wilson sparked days of protests on the streets of Ferguson. The ensuing police response, which many have called heavy-handed, and the violence, property damage and looting of some during the protests only deepened the sense of mistrust.

|The nice guy who went on a murderous rampage at Florida State University.|
Earlier this morning Florida authorities and the FBI are probing into a campus shooting overnight at the Florida State University.
Myron May went on a rampage at the campus injuring four before the law put the slug in him. He would be killed after a ten minute rampage. This extremist was given the opportunities most never gotten. A master's degree, a law degree and an alumni status. Not too many have an opportunity to achieve the dream through the American educational system.
May, a graduate of FSU in 2005 went into the library and let rounds. Four were injured critically.
He don't know what his motive was for going into
May left some clues to his motive in a journal. Obviously he had mental issues and a fear of something. May has mental illness. He had ties to my community of Dayton, Ohio.
In Dayton had a rocky childhood. He struggled with depression. He may of have bipolar disorder.
We don't know but I can guess he was probably on the verge of being targeted for something.
Officers from the Florida State and Tallahassee police departments responded within three to five minutes of the first reports of gunfire, according to Mayor-elect Andrew Gillum.
Once there, they found the shooter outside Strozier Library and asked him to drop his handgun.
"The suspect did not comply with the commands, and actually shot at one of the officers," Tallahassee police spokesman David Northway said. "They returned fire, and the subject was killed."
|A student's college book saved his life. The bullet ricocheted into it.|
The school canceled all classes and exams Thursday in the wake of the shooting, offering counseling services to those directly and indirectly affected.
Meanwhile, investigators are surveying the scene and interviewing witnesses -- trying to determine exactly what happened and for what reason. DeLeo, the police chief, hedged when asked whether May had fired at officers, saying investigators still have more witnesses to interview. He said is appears none of the victims were targeted for any specific reason.
"Mr. May had a written journal and videos where he expressed fears of being targeted and that he wanted to bring attention to this issue of targeting," DeLeo told reporters. "A preliminary review of these documents and videos demonstrate that Mr. May was in a state of crisis."
Those who tried to protect themselves thought rationally. The knew how to handle an active shooter.
They would barricade themselves with books, tables and locking doors. They were trying their best to not be seen and fight if cornered.
May's impact could shape how lawmakers are passing stupid conceal carry laws. They want people to actively carry firearms while on college. A great idea until the bad shooter gets you first.
Again a mass shooter doesn't care who he hits. The mass shooter doesn't care who is hit. In the mass shooter's mind, as long as the shooter sees a window of opportunity to aim at a target, the shooter is going for it.
|FSU campus was on lockdown.|
The impact of a mass shooter is devastating. Lives are lost or forever changed by injury.
Damn shame that the nice guys are likely the ones to kill.
We here at Journal de la Reyna send our condolences to those who were lost in this senseless tragedy

CBS, ABC, NBC and Fox are not going to air the president's address to the nation on his executive order to loosen immigration rules. They got a big lineup of shows on and they're not going to risk hearing the wrath of angry couch potatoes.
The president and Congress have failed in getting things done this session. The U.S. Senate passed a immigration reform bill but the House of Representatives didn't. It's likely going to die. The Keystone XL pipeline also died. The House passed it with strong Republican majority and died on one by the U.S. Senate. The Republicans with their 54 majority in the U.S. Senate, will wrangle some conservative (spineless chickenshit) Democrats to pass it in the new session. Nonetheless, the immigration reform is off the table. The healthcare law is going to be repealed again and this time Republicans will hang this around the neck of the next batch of Democrats up for slaughter.
The president is hoping to please Hispanics, Asians and non-American citizens by relaxing rules on federal immigration laws. He has the power to do so, but it comes with a price. This will spark a debate on getting a law passed in the lame duck session of Congress. It will also spur the notion that the president didn't listen to the American voter. Or perhaps the Republican Party is truly the party of racist and ignorant assholes.
The Republicans are threatening to shut down the government and impeachment if the president goes through on his promise.
So the president is telling the Republicans that he's done fucking around with them. He's got two years, he's going to go hard and finally push them to the edge. Republicans won the Midterms on the notion of fear and the president's low approval with his supporters.
The big networks are not giving the president an opportunity to broadcast his message. They are willing to stream it online, but no interruption of scheduling.
The Big Bank Theory is the country's most watched sitcom. The CBS Executives would be happy to air the address, but not on Thursday. The same goes for ABC, they have Grey's Anatomy and Scandal on Thursday. They don't want to deny the stans an opportunity to see episode.
Fox got Bones and Gracepoint that air. NBC got the Biggest Loser. A big reality show for the couch potatoes. Although these shows pull a huge base of stans, CBS and ABC win the night.
NBC's sister station Univision and the cable news channels are going to air the president's address to the nation.
The racist right is talking about it. They feel that this is a "snub" to the president.
Think what could happen if there's a serious event in America and the president speaks. We seen how they've reacted during the Sandy Hook school shooting a few years back. One Sunday, he talks during a NFL conference game and these racist bastards go all out on him.
Don't worry, the message will be heard!
Sad news, The Millers was given the ax on CBS. The sitcom was promoted on Monday after The Big Bang Theory and later 2 Broke Girls. According to the gods of junk food media criticism, ratings dropped fast.
So in order to finish off the sitcoms void, CBS is likely going to ax, Mike & Molly will take the helm. The show is coming back (for the time being). Mom, The McCarthys, are on the bubble as well as Mike & Molly. They are ending Two & Half Men after Angus T. Jones quit the show. The Charlie Sheen era netted nine seasons. The fiasco did help push the show for three more seasons. But with the half man gone, it's curtains for the long running sitcom.
The Millers starred Will Arnett, Sean Hayes, Margo Martindale, Beau Bridges and J.B. Smooth
|Family Guy parodied Cosby.|
More fallout from the controversy surrounding entertainer Bill Cosby. The entertainer is facing numerous accusations of rape by more than one woman. Count two hands and three fingers.
Over 14 women came out against America's dad and chief complainer of the Black community.
The 79-year old entertainer has gotten the pink slip. NBC pulls the plug on the untitled sitcom that Cosby was developing for the struggling network.
On top of that he's been even more silent on the new round of accusations from actress Janice Dickerson.
It wasn't clear how far along the NBC project was, with the Hollywood Reporter saying that the network had never gotten a final script. Cosby was expected to play another "family patriarch" type of role, one that revolved around three married daughters. An NBC spokesperson would say only that it's "no longer under development." The network's move follows a decision by Netflix to scrap its own Cosby project.
Dickinson became one, and the most visible, of a number of women who accused comedian Bill Cosby of committing sexual harassment and rape years before in multiple separate incidents.
Numerous women have recently come forward with similar allegations, with the incidents allegedly spread over almost 40 years of the comedian's career. While many of the stories being told by the women are remarkably consistent in their accounts.
Criminal charges have not been filed against Cosby, although he is known to have settled out of court in confidential agreements with one woman making similar accusations in 2006.
Dickinson has not asked for any financial or other type of compensation.
Quite ironic, that Family Guy mocked Bill Cosby and the situation.
Comedian Hannibal Buress did a comedy routine where Buress called Cosby a serial rapist, artist Barbara Bowman repeated her long-standing accusations that Cosby drugged, sexually assaulted and raped her over a two year period beginning in 1985 when she was 17 years old.
Hollywood Elsewhere published an essay by journalist Joan Tarshis claiming that Cosby raped her in 1969 when she was 19 years old.
Netflix pulled the plug on the Bill Cosby special.
Some of the performances and college speaking tours that he was going to do while on tour are postponed.
In a NPR interview, the host asked Cosby about the scandal. He clammed up and shook his head. By his silence he made it worse.
Twitter had a field day with his scandal.

Chris Hemsworth was chosen as People's Choice for The Most Sexiest Man,
People Magazine once again picking a White male for the most sexiest.cover and its sparking controversy. As usual, I told the readers last year, that I don't care for celebrities. I am not interested in their lives. They are entertainers, athletes and politicians.
But one thing I've often ignored was the Sexiest Man covers. I didn't care for them. I am not interested in these magazine covers of flaunting men. But as they continue to release another year of the most Sexiest Man, I happen to see more White men and not men of color on the front page.
But I do care about how these magazines ignore celebrities of non-color?
Yes and no!
Yes, because people are starting to notice. Me and S. Baldwin noticed it.
No. I don't often subscribe to a People Magazine. It's nothing but drama in my opinion. Its like Facebook on paper. People showing off what they got and making me feel like I ain't got much!
As a consolation, People posted British actor Idris Elba and Chris Pratt at the bottom. At best, the closest Black male celebrity to make it Elba.
People Magazine must really think we're stupid.
For the last 15 years, there's been a cover and the last person that was of non-color to my knowledge is Denzel Washington.
People Magazine really disappoints me.

|Chocolate will increase.|
The average king size candy bar is going to increase this year. The price of chocolate will skyrocket because there's a shortage. A huge shortage of chocolate.
I seen a king size candy bar priced at $1.99. Only five years ago, the average price for a candy bar was $1.29.
American chocolate maker Mars, Incorporated announced that it's going to be a rough year for the supply.
CBS News reports that the cost of ingredients in chocolate bars is rising, and the nation's biggest candy makers have already warned of price hikes next year. And it's not just costs that are pushing up prices. A growing sweet tooth around the world means more demand for chocolate.
The chocolate industry, a steadily growing, $50 billion-a-year worldwide business centered on the sale and consumption of chocolate, is prevalent throughout most of the world. Europe accounts for 45% of the world's chocolate revenue.
Big Chocolate is the grouping of major international chocolate companies in Europe and the U.S.
The U.S. companies, such as Mars and Hershey’s alone, generate $13 billion a year in chocolate sales and account for two-thirds of U.S. production.
Despite the expanding reach of the chocolate industry internationally, cocoa farmers and laborers in the Ivory Coast are unaware of the uses of the beans. The high cost of chocolate in the Ivory Coast also means that it is inaccessible to the majority of the population, who are unaware of what it tastes like.
The biggest days to sell chocolate is Valentine's Day, Easter, and Halloween.
The most popular chocolate products, Kit Kat, NesQuik Chocolate Milk, Reese's, Oreo cookies and Pillsbury cookies.
|Loserville anchor got cursed out by protesters who felt the conservative network mislead the audience on the protests.|
The junk food media is stirring the pot. Looking for ratings, the junk food media hopes there will be riots and brutal attacks on residents in Ferguson, Missouri. In the wake of the possibility the Ferguson officer Darren Wilson walks, embattled Democratic governor Jay Nixon ordered the National Guard to St. Louis, Kansas City and other localities. The assumptions of Blacks rioting and looting are pouring in from the junk food media and the agitators of the conservative media.
The racist right is hoping that the "leaks" will prove that unarmed Michael Brown was a good for nothing criminal. They hope they can prove that the unarmed Brown and his friend robbed a store of a pack of Swisher Sweet cigars. They want to prove that the unarmed Brown reached for the officer's service weapons. The unarmed Brown was trying to fight the officer for the weapon. The unarmed Michael Brown was charging at the officer. They are hoping the Black community riots and cause a scene. They want to recruit more White extremists to their organizations. They want more extremists to buy firearms and persuade Republicans to loosen gun laws. They are actively hoping for Blacks to riot in the streets and brutally attack those in law enforcement. The perfect storm for the Klan to recruit. The best thing for the racist shitholes to blog about it.
THE DAY THE NIGGAZ TAKE OVER!
The decision is coming and the St. Louis metropolitan area is gearing up for reactionary responses from those who felt that another unarmed Black man dies while a White man walks.
Three officer involved shootings happened in Ohio that I will cover.
|Conservatives are hoping Ferguson officer walks.|
33 year old Andrew Davidson was being sought for a charge of stalking and harassment. Davidson disobeyed orders to drop a knife. The officers placed a few slugs in him. The officers were placed on administrative leave. It's standard procedure whenever an officer fires their service weapon.
Then another officer involved shooting happened in Dayton, Ohio. A man who was heavily armed pulled a weapon on Dayton officers. They opened fired and killed him. John Smelko, a 40 year old resident of the iron college got two in the torso after he tried to pull a draw on the two officers.
Smelko had been served up on domestic violence and weapons charges.
And the most well known shooting was the John Crawford III shooting. Crawford was on his phone when he was inside a Beavercreek Walmart. He grabbed an open pellet gun off the shelf and was walking around with it. Some of the residents were spooked by it. A caller tipped the law and two Beavercreek officers arrived. They claimed that Crawford ignored orders to drop. Crawford was on the phone and as he turned towards the left of the aisle, he was pulled by one of the officers. The officer is still on administrative leave.
The family of Crawford is planning on suing the city for unjustified murder. The FBI and U.S. Justice Department are going to look into this case. This controversy is gathering steam after a grand jury concluded that the officers used justifiable force.
When Whites riot and loot communities, it's because they're excited over a sports victory or loss.
When Black riot, they're showing the world that they're racist, violent criminals, and they're just bitching over issues that they know weren't in their favor but do it because they want "reparations".
When Whites protest and boycott businesses, the junk food media looks at this as democracy.
When Blacks protest and boycott businesses, the junk food media attacks this as ANGRY BLACK PEOPLE trying to silence freedom of speech, destroy profit creators, and just agitating Whites.
The decision is coming and we're hoping that it will be peaceful and respectful.
To Fred 101 - Hey, thanks for reading our blog. We appreciate the feedback. Unfortunately, I strongly disagree with your aspects. I believe that you're our "ANONYMOUS" commentator who been frequently posting your comments on here. I make no bones about deleting them, ignoring them and questioning your comments.
While you may think that we're obsessed with race, we're actually not.
No what me and S. Baldwin do is talk about issues that face our community, the government and the junk food media.
This controversy affects not only race but political views. First and foremost, Darren Wilson deserves a fair trial. He is alive to tell his side of the story. Michael Brown is dead. He can't say anything. He's in the dirt. Only those who witnessed this. Whether you believe them or not, you and I weren't there. There was no dash camera. So anything can be said through the junk food media and sponges soak it up.
Regardless of the decision, I and S. Baldwin will continue forth. We will continue to demand justice for all unarmed victims of gun crimes.
The situation already got people like George Zimmerman hiding. He has to live his life in fear. Every move he makes, the junk food media will follow. He already been in the news over 20 times since the verdict that allowed him to walk. Every time was for some idle threat using a firearm.
If Darren Wilson returns back to the force, he'll will have to keep a low profile. Although I think he will likely not return as an officer, the junk food media wants him post decision. Obviously Loserville will try to get him to speak out if he's found not guilty.
If the grand jury decides to prosecute Wilson then he lawyers up and hope that he gets off. If not, people will be celebrating or showing anger. Human nature.
Fred 101, Republican, any conservative/liberatarian and/or racist commentator here: Don't you dare confuse an opinion as a fact. There's no facts. It's heresy.
You best believe that I want to see justice for Michael Brown. The first step is to get more people out to vote. Americans need to vote so they can change the way things are running in Washington, DC.
Republicans coming to Congress isn't going to change shit. They suck! They support the murders of innocent victims here and abroad. The Democrat suck even more! They pretend to be your friends but they'll kill you slowly. They support the murders of innocent victims here and abroad. They cry and scream but stand on the sidelines like the pussies they are!
Second the Ferguson Police must work with the Black community. They need to understand the frustration of the Black community. They are upset over this. You're not Black. You're probably WHITE, MALE and CONSERVATIVE. You probably never been profiled by police. Black males have. And I for one am tired of it. I work two fucking jobs. I deserve the right to be angry about the situation.
So take a chill! The decision will come.
I got more important things to do than destroy my community. Got it.

|In a second a controversy would ensue.|
The NFL Network, CBS and most of the junk food media is going to have a field day with the guy who took a ball from a woman. The woman wearing a Cincinnati Bengals jersey went to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome to watch her team play against the New Orleans Saints.
As Jermaine Gresham scored the touchdown, he heads towards the fan. He toss the ball and as the woman was about to catch it, this old Black ignorant fan elbowed her and took the ball.
As the cameras are rolling, you see the woman is pleading to the old Black ignorant fan to no avail.
Christa Barrett became a viral sensation. ESPN reports that there was a point during the game when it appeared that despite her best efforts, she would be going back home to Versailles, Kentucky, empty-handed. Thanks to a kind gesture from the Saints organization, that didn't happen.
Midway through the third quarter, Cincinnati tight end Jermaine Gresham caught a 1-yard touchdown pass that put the Bengals up 19-3 when he jogged over to the end zone wall. As he approached, two female Bengals fans -- one dressed in a black A.J. Green jersey and the other in an orange Bengals T-shirt -- had just jogged down the section's steps to the edge of the wall. They were excitedly pleading for the ball when Gresham complied.
But what none of them, not Gresham nor the women asking for the ball, had expected was the male Saints fan lurking nearby in the first row.
As the ball left Gresham's hands, the Saints fan, identified by the Cincinnati Enquirer as a man named Tony Williams, leaped in front of the two women. As the one in the Green jersey -- identified by the Enquirer as Barrett -- caught the flip, Williams snatched the ball from her. In the same motion, he sat back down, putting the ball underneath his right arm.
It stayed there the rest of the game.
"He should be ashamed of himself," Gresham told a reporter from The Associated Press after the game.
After the game, Gresham took to Twitter to apologize to one of the women involved.
@PrincipalCara Truly sorry about you guys not getting that ball. I'll make sure you guys receive something greater for compensation.
— Jermaine Gresham (@JGresham84) November 16, 2014
That is bullshit. I know that what you do in front of the cameras could be used against you. And believe me, now that the junk food media seen the video, they'll certainly try to find who he is and give him the works.
Trust me, the racist right will love to see stuff like this.
When asked by the junk food media, Barrett said there's no ill-will toward Williams and that anything Gresham gave to her, she'd like to donate to the Devon Still's campaign to raise money for pediatric cancer.
Williams said he's been sitting in his seat at the edge of section 130 since the Superdome opened.
"Nooooo," Williams said when asked if he was going to give up the football.
"Because I caught it," he said. "It's very simple, I caught the football."
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Williams and Barrett left the stadium with a football, though. The Saints gave Barrett a ball, and Williams left with the one he caught.
"Yeah, I saw it," he said. "I didn't mean to hit that young lady. I was just reaching for the football. I didn't mean to hurt the lady."
He also made it clear, he had no intention of giving up the football — or his seat.
The social media is urging the NFL and Saints organization to ban this guy for the remaining season.
