Update on Sandra Bland

0 comments
According to Waller County prosecutor, Warren Diepraam, Sandra Bland's autopsy revealed no signs of a homicide. Marks on her wrists were consistent with struggling while handcuffed. Wounds around her neck were consistent with a hanging by suicide. Diepraam also reported that Sandra had 30 small cuts on her wrists that may have been self-inflicted. Booking documents indicate that she told jail staff she had Epilepsy and was taking the drug Keppra. (Although other forms say that she was not taking medication). On the medication's website, under warnings, it says, "Keppra and Keppra XR, may cause suicidal thoughts or actions in a very small number of people, about 1 in 500"

On the previous blog I questioned whether or not Sandra had been able to make a phone call, if she saw a judge and if a bail was set. Alexandria Pyle, who occupied the cell next to Bland, has told reporters that Sandra cried a lot during her time in jail. According to Pyle, Bland was upset that a friend she called did not bail her out. Bland thought she was the victim of an injustice. Pyle further stated that Bland had told her she, "was not equipped" for jail. Pyle did not hear any signs of a struggle in the cell next to her.

LaVaughn Mosley, the friend Sandra called from jail, has said that he did not notice the two missed calls and message she left, until it was too late. Bland's voicemail says:

Hey, this is me. I’m, um—I just was able to see the judge. I don’t really know. They got me held at a $5,000 bond. I’m, I’m still just at a loss for words, honestly, about this whole process. How this switching lanes with no signal turned into all of this, I don’t know. Um, but I’m still here, so I guess call me back when you can. Bye.

Mosley has expressed guilt for not listening to the message sooner.

I just had to relive everything that had happened, and to hear her voice after I knew she was gone. Part of it was the guilt because I hadn’t listened to it.

Sandra Bland's family has ordered an independent autopsy. The results have not been revealed yet. Meanwhile, Sandra's mugshot is being circulated on the blogosphere with speculation that Sandra may have already been dead in the photo. That, I am not too quick to believe. I'm not an expert, but she does not look dead in the photo to me. She looks very upset, and she looks like she was crying. Also, a second dash cam video was released by ABC showing a different angle: Video.

Sandra Bland's Buriel
Sandra's funeral was yesterday. Hundreds of people showed up. People who had never met her, or the family, showed up for support and encouragement. Hank Brown, who attended the funeral, told the Chicago Tribune:

I didn't know Sandra, and I don't know what happened, but she didn't have to die.

My thoughts exactly. Texas authorities say, Sandra Bland gave inconsistent answers to jailer's questions and any contradictions in the jail documents, were a result of her inconsistencies. However, I believe that authorities had enough information to at least put Sandra on suicide watch. There should have been nothing in her cell. If this was not murder, then it was negligence.

Sandra Bland Arrest - Full Video

1 comments
Texas authorities said that the Sandra Bland arrest video originally had glitches. After watching this full video, I'm not buying it! Someone looked at this video and said, "This looks kinda bad. We're gonna have ta get rid of summa dis here footage." They were probably also trying to hide the fact that someone else was recording. Since that might cause the family, or their attorney, to try and track down that person.

What I see on the video below is a man who got pissed off, because a woman did not give him the authority that he thought he deserved. He was mad, because she would not give him eye contact, and she was irritated with being pulled over. Not only was she irritated, but she had no problem telling him that when he asked. He really didn't like her tone, and the fact that she wasn't scared of him. However, getting your feelings hurt is not a reason to arrest (and cause the death of) someone. If she had not been arrested, she would not be dead.

    

It's not illegal to smoke in your car in Texas. There was no reason for the officer to ask Sandra to get out of the car. I wonder if Trooper Brian Encinia feels good about himself now.

The thing that pisses me off is that there are all kinds of videos on YouTube with white boys and men exercising their rights when getting pulled over. They don't roll the window all the way down. They video the situation. They talk in nasty, or taunting tones. I believe that some of them intentionally get pulled over just to be able to make the video. On those videos, the cops do not demand the individual out of the car, they do not threaten to "light" him up, they do not arrest him for no reason, and they certainly do not end up with his body dead in a jail cell three days later.

I have questions. If you know the answers, feel free to share:

Why did the officer move Sandra from the camera's view?
What was she arrested for?
Why was she held three days?
Did she see a judge?
Was a bail set?
Did Sandra get a phone call?
She said she had Epilepsy, did she receive medical treatment while being held?
Why did she have access to a trash bag long enough, and sturdy enough to hang herself, if she expressed that she had previously thought about committing suicide?
What reason did they have to search her car?

I could be wrong, but I'm not buying that she killed herself. I think there is more to it. Some guys arrogant attitude, caused Sandra Bland to end up dead. Even if she did kill herself, the way the officer reacted to a woman being mad at him, is unjustified. But women are too busy being made over a Trophy wife T-shirt being sold at Target, than to pay attention to how some cop over reacted to a woman catching an attitude with him. Just like when Guzman was knocked out by Lieutenant Josey here in Philly. Feminism was mute in the debates. Women activist seem to think men have no right to put their hands on a woman, unless they're in uniform.

He's a pig. He's chauvinistic and he's a cop. He's probably racist too. I'm sure he threw around the words, "black bitch," at some point. We all get called that at some point. It doesn't matter how light we are. As soon as we have an attitude, or act to strong or mean, we become the "black bitch." (That's a topic for another day).

I'm sick of people acting like we have to tippy-toe around cops and be all, "Yessa massa. I's gone be a real good girl." Fuuuuck that! I pay my taxes. I've never been arrested. I have a clean driving record. I have good credit. I don't even drink unless it's a holiday! I am a good citizen, and I do not believe, that just because some dick in a uniform decided to take on a job that's more risky than mine, he deserves more respect than me. He doesn't, because if he was smart, he would have had to rethink that career move.

I hope that I never get stopped by a cop at night, or on a road with hardly any traffic. I say this, because I'm not pulling over. I'm going to keep driving to the nearest police station, hospital, or lighted venue I can find. If I have to go to jail, so be it. I am not going to end up raped, beat or dead, because some cop wants to have a "good time." There are all kinds of incidents right here in Philly of cops sexually assaulting women, hitting women, beating people for no good reason, and killing people. I'm not trying to be one of those people. The scary thing is, I probably would go to jail and they'd still do whatever they want to me. It's a lose/lose situation. Being pulled over by a cop is one of my biggest fears. It almost makes me want to stop driving. It's a scary world out here. We can't trust the people that are supposed to protect us from criminals, because they are the criminals.

Donald Trump Quotes - Wait, did he Really Say That?

0 comments
On Immigration:
The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems,,, When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.
On apologizing to Latinos:
There’s nothing to apologize for....I'll win the Latino vote because I’ll create jobs. I’ll create jobs and the Latinos will have jobs they didn’t have, I’ll do better on that vote than anybody, I will win that vote.
Donald on Puerto Rico:
I love Puerto Rico, I go there every winter, to visit my hubcabs. Seriously, they got the rug pulled out from under them when the idiots in Washington changed the rules of the game about how they can borrow money...I'm just buying the whole damn island right now. One of the best things about being very rich is that you can buy whatever you want, and in this case, I want Puerto Rico. It's a beautiful place, the weather's great, and the people are already American, even though they speak Spanish. I have no idea how that happened, but so be it...We'll have 100 (golf) courses stretching from one end of the island to another. I don't think there's really that much in the way. Maybe some chickens. 
On Tweeter about Puerto Ricans:
In NYC I've known many Puerto Ricans. They have a nice parade. I like the drums they play.They will be so happy with Puerto Trump that they might all leave NYC and go back home. I'll provide free airfare. They weren't going to vote for me anyway.
 On John McCain:
He is not a war hero... He is a war hero because he was captured...I like people that weren't captured, OK? I hate to tell you. He is a war hero because he was captured. OK, you can have -- I believe perhaps he is a war hero.
When asked if he will apologize to John McCain:
No, not at all. People that fought hard and weren't captured and went through a lot, they get no credit. Nobody even talks about them. They're like forgotten. And I think that's a shame, if you want to know the truth...People that were not captured that went in and fought, nobody talks about them. Those are heroes also. 

And the Dumbass Award goes to...

Ariana Grande did what??!!!

0 comments
On July 4th, Ariana Grande went into a California store, Wolfee Donuts, and proceeded to lick and spit on donuts and then put them back for other customers. The donuts were sold.

Gross.

She was also heard on the security camera footage, saying: 'I hate Americans. I hate America.'

After that, Wolfee Donuts' failed its health check. (Their score has since been restored to its previous A Grade).

Ariana is now apologizing on her her tours and calling America "the greatest country in the world." Blogs and websites are reporting that the onwer of Wolfee Donuts, Joe Marin, has decided not to press charges against the singer. 

However, Marin was on a Toronto radio station with Roz & Mocha  saying he believes Grande should be charged.
“I think she should be [charged],” he told the station. “If it was one of us or a regular customer, they would do something about it.


The store owner says Ariana licked two donuts, and then spit on two others. This is so disgusting to me, and more disturbing than her anti-american remarks. What would make her think its funny to put her saliva on someone else's food? How would she feel if someone did that to her food? Someone should do that to her. Really. 

This girl is disgusting.

Game Bashes Scandrick for filing Restraining Order, Scandrick says "You can’t believe everything you hear"

0 comments
If you haven't heard, Orlando Scandrick allegedly filed for a restraining order against Draya Michele after she maced him, threw objects at him and threatened to throw bleach in his eyes.

I've been seeing this story online about Game ripping Orlando for filing the restraining order:
Game Rips Orlando Scandrick for Filing a Restraining Order Against Draya Michele

Game wasn't the only person blasting Scandrick for filing paperwork against his ex-fiance. Yesterday morning on Boom 107.9 Monie Love also trashed Orlando for the same reason.

I'm a little confused as to why. If Scandrick had done a Ray Rice on Draya, then he'd be wrong. I'm so sick of the double standard. Women want equal rights until it's not beneficial to them. The same way Ray Rice became the poster boy for what you're not supposed to do; Sandrick should be our example of what you ARE supposed to do. If he let her abuse him, (because that's what it is) until he lost his cool, then he'd go to jail. The media would make him out to be the worst person in the entire would and his image would be completely tarnished. I think he did the right thing.

It doesn't matter though, because now he's saying this:

“I just try to work everyday and just take one day at a time. You can’t believe everything you read. You can’t believe everything you hear.”

This is why women get to screw men over. If Scandrick didn't file the restraining order, he should have. I don't care how big he is, or how small she is. I don't care how cute she is, or how ridiculous other celebrities may think it is. She is obviously mentally unstable, and has violent tendencies. She needs to stay away from him, not because she can hurt him, but because she will continue to bate him into a domestic dispute that can end in violence. He had every right to file the order, and have her evicted from his house. Doing so doesn't make him less of a man, it makes him more of one.

Mandatory Fluoridation of Water in the US

1 comments
It's funny how the FDA approves the Fluoridation of water supplies in almost every community in the United States. Meanwhile, the EPA has published information recommending the best over-the-counter and under-the-counter Filtration methods people should use to remove fluoride from their water at home.

Just a thought.

Police Arrest man for Leaving dogs out in Single-digit Cold

0 comments
http://www.myfoxphilly.com/story/27822291/police-arrest-man

I saw this article on Fox yesterday. Fox asked the question, "Do you think these charges are enough?" There were so many ridiculous comments about this article. Some of the comments are pictured below.

People should not be going to jail over dogs. It's a waste of tax payor dollars. For something like this the man should have been fined and should have had the dogs taken from him. Instead, tax payor dollars were spent on arresting him, paperwork, booking, court hours to determine a bail, holding time and food if they had to provide that. Why not just fine the man, take the dogs from him, and ban him from any other dog ownership unless he completes classes on how to care for them, (which he has to pay for himself). 

I'm so sick of this country sending everyone to prison and making us pay for their meals, beds & court hearings. Is this the only thing people can come up with to solve problems these days? They spend, spend, spend on overcrowding courts & prisons. Then turn around and blame poor people, mexicans and Obama for the finacial crisis. Amazing.

"EVERYONE TIME YOU POINT YOUR FINGER THERE ARE THREE POINTING BACK AT YOU."

Some of these people should feel ashamed of themselves for the comments they made. Is a dogs life really of more value than a humans? I can't find the post anymore, but someone aactually said this guy should be hanged, while another said he should be beat. There are 3,000 something comments. 

FYI: Dogs will be able to survive the cold when humans can't. ....because they're fucking animals.

If we Cannot have Justice, We Cannot have Peace

1 comments
How many times will we ask this government  for help, and watch the door get slammed in our faces, then turn around on our own people and shame them?

Yes, there is an issue with black on black crime. That is an issue that stems deep within our community  and comes from a multitude of factors. It is not excusable. However, it is not the reason or the cause to bash blacks who are rioting around this country.

What is next? Who is next? Your son? Mine? My husband? Yours? Black lives are being taken by law enforcement  and George Zimmermans and NO ONE is doing anything. How many times are we going to turn to this same system and get no results? We get angry at the virdict, and we move on.

There needs to be an uprising  of the people. Some will do it through words, some will do it peacefully, some will write and some will riot. But it has to be done. In a revolution you need your MLKS and your Blank Panthers.

No matter how wrong it is all races of people riot. When the Phillies won the world series the fans destroyed  Broad Street. Does anyone remember that? Or do we just keep a little book highlighting  all the wrongs black people have done. Just because you don't understand something, doesn't make it wrong.

That community  you all think you have that they're destroying is not yours. You don't have a community in America, because you don't have a value in America. Your children do not have a value in America. America does not care about you or your right to live peacefully. Why do you care about it?

NO JUSTICE. NO PEACE.

Iggy Steps Out Make-Up Free After Nasty Feud with Snoop Dogg

0 comments


Kudos to Iggy Azalea for going make-up free even after having been bashed my Snoop Dogg on instagram last week. It's such a breath of fresh air to see a celebrity who is comfortable in her own skin. This girl knows that she doesn't have to hide who she really is behind a face full of make-up, just because someone else doesn't like how she looks. I'm not a make-up everyday kind of person, so I like that :)



Last week's feud:

Last weekend Snoop Dogg posted a photo of an albino woman on Instagram and poked fun at Iggy saying that the photo shows how she looks with no make-up.


Iggy responded with the following Tweets:
"@SnoopDogg why would you post such a mean pic on insta when you send your body guards to ask me for pictures every time we are at shows together?" 
"My bodyguard stopped the fire truck that saved your friend's life in Canada when he almost burnt down the hotel," 
"And every time I've ever spoken to you you've always been nice as hell," 
"I'm disappointed you'd be such an ass for no reason." 
In response to her tweets, Iggy was put on blast by Daz Dallinger who said she doesn't know her place in the rap world. 

Meanwhile Snoop Dogg continued his tirade.

On a picture of himself wearing a blond wig he wrote, "Snoop Dogg and Iggy Azalea Beef!?"
"So says Todd cool out lil sis he was only jokin Sike. Ubitchu!!" he wrote. He also posted a split shot of himself and Azalea with an X between them and wrote "And u were saying?"

On a pic of Iggy next to Marlon Wayans' character in White Chicks he wrote,"Ok last one. Hahahahaha I didn't make this s--t up I jus post smoke n chill Hahahahahahah. So says Todd." 

Then he posted this: "Ok last one n Imma leave the bitch alone!! Hahahahahah So says Todd"

Another image after that read "U finished bitch cuz I got a lot more where that came from ufunky bitch u!!" He just went crazy calling her names and posting images. He even posted an image of Nicki Minaj sitting by herself and said it was Nicki Minaj sitting with other relevant female rappers and asked,
 "Where is Iggy ? Nowhere insight. @realnickiminaj_ F--k the fake n non writers yeah that means u again biitch !! Go nikki go Hoe Iggy hoe !! Sweet dreams c--t."  
Iggy posted the below photo comparing Snoop to a drug addicted aunt.
That caused Snoop to post a nasty video speaking to Iggy. He says in the video, "Say bitch, you fucking with the wrong n---a and your n---a better check you before I do. You funky bitch. Yeah you! Fucking cunt."

The video prompted responses from both Iggy & her boyfriend. Nick Young tweeted: 
"These old heads turnin into sucka's" and  "Ain't nobody worried about SnoopLion .. this dude Just goin through a midlife Crisis..."
While Iggy posted the following:
“I could post a million more memes about snoop dogg making fun of the way he looks too, thats easy.“But the real joke here is the middle aged man whos butt hurt i asked why he was pulling a Regina George move on social media.“If I’m a bitch for asking why you are supportive to my face but another way on your Instagram then so be it.“post away about this “bitch” I’ve seen all the memes the word has to offer in regards to me i honestly don’t care. and its a shame because honestly everyone on my team myself included have only ever sung his praises. but there you have it.“personally i only shake hands & offer my support to those i actually like & i don’t post shit about others for attention to begin with.“anyhow guys, lots of love to you all. just got home from watching gone girl – strange ending. but interesting. ima be the bigger man in this situation and leave it be.“its like the guy that asks for your number and then says you ugly and a bitch when you say no…”
Then at some point it ended with Snoop apologizing:
"Hey boys and girls, I just got off the phone with my boy Tip, the King of Atlanta.
It's officially over. No more bad talk. I apologize. I'm sorry. I won't do it again."
Iggy posted her acceptance of the apology on twitter.

Philadelphia’s Revised 5-Year Budget Gets OK Despite Wage Tax Dustup « CBS Philly

0 comments


Philadelphia’s Revised 5-Year Budget Gets OK Depite Wage Tax Dustup « CBS 

Mayor Nutter's “Five Year Plan,” for the city's budget was approved today. He changed the plan by deciding not to reduce the city wage tax as previously planned.

PICA chairman, Lawrence Tabas made a valid point about this, stating:

"If we face an increase in the state income tax next year, those two taxes alone are going to have people think twice about the City of Philadelphia, especially when you add the extra sales tax on it.”

“Our young are starting to evaluate whether they can afford to stay in the city.  The middle class are being squeezed.  So if we don’t do something soon, we could hurt the kind of benefits that we've just been realizing from the (economy’s) turnaround.”

The board then went on to approve the budget with its revisions. 

I don't know how anyone else feels, but I don't like working just to pay the city & my bills. I wonder if they talked about cutting out pointless spending (like redoing the front of city hall to put those little fountains there) during that meeting. 


How we're being taxed:

Earnings/Wage:
3.92% (Resident)
3.4915% (Non-Resident)

Net Profits:
3.924% (Resident)
3.495% (Non-Resident)

Real Estate:
.6018% (City) + .7382% (School) = 1.34% (Total)

Realty Transfer:
3% (City) + 1% (Commonwealth) = 4% (Total)

Sales & use tax: 
2.00% (City) + 6.00% (Commonwealth) = 8.00% (Total)

Tobacco Tax: 
$0.036 individually rolled items (cigars)
$0.36 per pack of rolling papers
$0.36 per ounce of all other tobacco and tobacco-related item

10yr old Boy Charged with Murder in Killing of 90yr old Woman

0 comments
10-year-old Tristen Kurilla has been charged with criminal homicide after killing 90-year-old Helen Novak in Damascus, PA.

The boy's grandfather, Anthony Virbitsky, was Novak’s caretaker. According to reports the kid entered into Novak’s room last Saturday morning  and she yelled at him to get out. He left, but then came back with a cane, which he put to her throat and pulled back. He also punched her in the stomach fives time. Then he told his grandfather that Novak was bleeding. His grandfather checked on Novak. She was “breathing heavy and looked scared,” but she said she was okay and didn’t want to go to the hospital. When he checked on her again later she was unresponsive and 911 was called. Authorities arrived to the house to find Helen Novak dead. The autopsy concluded that she died from blunt force trauma to her neck

According to Janine Edwards, Wayne County District Attorney, Virbitsky asked his grandson directly if he had hurt Novak, and the boy said he put the cane to her neck and punched her. 

The boy’s mother took him turned him in to State Police hours after the incident. The boy explained what he'd done saying“I killed that lady.”  He also said he was only trying to hurt her. As of now, the boy is charged as an adult. He is being held, without bail at the Wayne County Correctional facility. They have him separated from adult offenders. He is not in general population, he is being supervised 24/7 by staff and he is being provided recreation, television and phone privileges with his family.

In Pennsylvania homicide charges are first filed in adult court, but the boy's attorney can petition to have his case moved to juvenile court after the charges have been filed.

According to the Associated Press the boy’s attorney, Bernard Brown, believes he is not fit to stand trial. Brown is trying to have him released to his father and says there is evidence that the boy may have mental issues, so he may not be fit to stand trial. The  next court date is 10/22/14.
