Brown Shot Six Times--All Six Shots Entered In The Front Of His Body

This is from the doctor the Brown family hired to conduct a second autopsy. Twice in the head, and four in his arm. More to follow later, as the statement was issued five minutes ago. I kept hearing Mr. Brown was shot trying to get away from the cop.

Toledo is nearing point of no return

Tagged:  

As of 11:45 August 16, the following crimes have been committed in Toledo:

~Anthony Horton was badly beaten on Buckingham Street

~Hakeem Johnson was shot on Nevada Street

~A teenager was shot on Chestnut and Noble Streets

~Tyrell Jones was shot on Franklin Street and Woodruff Avenue

There was a time in the City's history, before undesirables inhabited many of its neighborhoods, that just one of these occurrences in the course of a day would be big news. Now it's met with a yawn.

What happened? In the 50s, 60s, and 70s, Toledo was a manufacturing hub where people were able to get secure factory jobs with just a high school diploma. The City attracted low/no-skill workers from lower-class backgrounds who didn't possess any burning desire to better themselves--just to get a paycheck and head to the bar after work.

Dinner Time!

Here's a good idea! Waste not, want not. Now it's time to reciprocate and feed a few sharks.

TX Gov Rick Perry Indicted On 2 Felony Corruption Charges

"A Travis County grand jury Friday indicted Gov. Rick Perry on two charges related to his effort last year to force District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign after her drunken driving arrest.

Grand jurors charged Perry, 64, with abuse of official capacity, a first-degree felony, and coercion of a public servant, a third-degree felony. The first charge carries a punishment of 5-99 years and a fine of up to $10,000. The second charge is punishable by 2-10 years and a fine of up to $10,000.

The indictment stems from Perry’s threat last summer to withhold $7.5 million in state money from Lehmberg’s office unless she step down – a threat he later carried out by vetoing an appropriation in the state budget."

NEW BLACK PANTHERS

New Black Panthers stated "We don't have a problem with Al-Qaida, we don't have a problem with Islam. We have a problem with White People". Well that just about says it all. They, The NEW Black Panthers would probably join ISIS/Al-Qaida anyway, while all the other Christian blacks get slaughtered. And this is the group that Sharpton and a lot of people in black communities rally with. Oh! and one more thing, some were saying they were looting in St Louis on behalf of Michael Brown. Ok, I get it, lets destroy our community because we have what we feel is an excuse now to do it.

Why Does Ferguson Have A White Republican Mayor?

If the ratio of Black residents over White residents in the 60%-30% range, why did the White Republican run UNOPPOSED? Maybe this is why. I was a poll observer in the 2008 general election. What I saw was AMAZING! I saw at least 100 folks(after that I quit watching the phenomenon), of every age and persuasion, asking poll workers how to vote for Obama, and Obama only. When the helpers explained how to do that, they pointed out all the other important issues being presented, many of the voters things like "fcck that B-S, I'm not voting for ANYTHING other than Obama."

Something Clearly Missing In This Case!

Tagged:  

I've been watching all the liberal shows today. Listening to the witnesses, some who were only a few feet away from the scene, I finally figured out what is missing here. The N-Word! Nobody I heard used it. Nobody. Since everybody knows that when a Black Person is about to talk to a White Person/Cop, the first thing the White Person/Cop does, is to start a conversation saying "N-Word this---N-Word that", talking AT people instead of TO them, and so on.

Okay Teabaggers, why is there an Impeach Obama booth out front of the Oregon Kroger

Seriously. You have now lost the ability to say that Dems are making it all up.

Deadline passes

Tagged:  

Michigan's inept union leadership missed the July 7th deadline to get a referendum on the November ballot to permanently repeal the state's right to work law. You would have thought that with the rep of being home to the unions, and a union state that they could have gotten the required 322,609 signatures but they didn't. They got zero, they rolled over and played dead.

NRCC busted for making fake websites

The National Republican Campaign Committee has created fake news sites about House candidates, presumably to take advantage of readers who don't pay close attention to what news sources they read, National Journal reported.

Earlier this year, the NRCC got in some trouble for creating deceptive fake campaign sites for Democrats that ask people to contribute in order to help "defeat" the candidate.

Teacher Fired Over Namecalling Her Students, Might Be Reinstated

I'm betting she will be rehired. I don't have a dog in this fight, but the issue is still, did she REALLY do anything worthy of being fired over? In a union setting, the grievance procedure has to be followed, and one cannot skip steps, which seems to have happened here.

City of Toledo Environmental Service Department - Where Are You?

The City of Toledo has an Environmental Services Department that employs more than thirty people, yet we never heard a peep out of them during the water crisis. Ohio EPA has an office in Bowling Green that was involved in the crisis. What was the City of Toledo's Environmental Services Department doing? I have an idea. Maybe they were too busy having one of their daily potlucks or tanning themselves next to their rain garden.

Mayor: It's somebody else's fault

The Blade waits until the very last paragraph of this lengthy story to give readers the most jarring remark by Mayor Collins, that directors (he used the plural) of public utilities are "political hacks." He doesn't name names and the editors apparently didn't press him to do so, but it's obvious that Ed Moore, a good and decent man, is being set up as a scapegoat. My guess is that the mayor and the editors are colluding, doing a little set-up work to justify future attacks on selected employees in the water division.
