Fight Breaks Out Because Judge Ordered A “1 Year Sentence To A Man Who Ran Over A Child & Killed Him”

A fight broke out after a Milwaukee man who struck and killed a boy with his car in April was sentenced to one year in prison and one year probation Wednesday morning.

Dedrick Ashford, 23, pleaded guilty to striking and killing 6-year-old Christopher Wade on April 21.

The collision occurred near the intersection of 51st Street and Meinecke Avenue.

According to the criminal complaint, Ashford told police he knew he was driving without a license and had smoked marijuana a few hours before he got behind the wheel.

According to WISN 12 News reporter Hillary Mintz, Wade’s family was disgusted with the one-year sentence and began screaming and yelling.

The melee spilled into the hallway outside of the courtroom, where  several people were eventually arrested, and some were injured. The Sheriff’s Department said three people are in custody.

Mintz said a Milwaukee County sheriff’s deputy threatened to use his Taser, but did not need to.

One deputy may have been injured, Mintz said.

 

“He was driving without a license and high of an illegal drug and the judge gave him 1  year.”

Please tell me what’s your opinion of this one?

Glenn Beck Dunks Barack Obama Figurine In A “Mason Jar With A Little Bit Of Urine”

These conservative busters are way the f**k out of pocket when it comes to our POTUS…

Via RawStory:

Former Fox News conspiracy theorist Glenn Beck put on his art critic hat Tuesday and proceeded to dunk a figurine of President Barack Obama into a jar of what he claimed to be urine. Repeatedly calling himself one of the “100 most important people in the art industry,” Beck adopted a phony French accent and began painting clothes onto fine art nudes, seemingly under the impression that he was making a statement about artistic freedom.

Finally, he pulled out a bottle of yellow liquid he claimed to be urine and dunked a figurine of Obama into it, in an apparent homage to a 1989 photograph by artist Andres Serrano, depicting a figure of Jesus Christ in a jar of urine. “It’s a mason jar with a little bit of pee-pee in it, uh?” Beck said. “…This is when an icon and art come together.”

“Now some will say that all Glenn Beck did is put the president in a jar of pee-pee,” Beck went on. “While technically correct, yes, I prefer to call this work of art by its more appropriate and professional title. I like to call this, ‘Flobama.’ Sure we can dumb it down for the masses of little people so they can understand. Yes, we have Obama in pee-pee. Mmm? Oui? Yes? This can be yours for a bargain price of $25,000.”

He added that if someone buys it, he’ll make another with First Lady Michelle Obama, this time in a “skinny bottle,” which he said somehow represents her “little abs.”

The whole thing was supposed to make a point about how art should be protected under the Constitution no matter whose feelings it hurts. Trouble is, the message sort-of gets lost amid what may go down as one of Beck’s most bizarre performances to date.

Eff this guy!!

Woman Says Implants Saved Her Life In Shooting

Woman Says Implants Saved Her Life In Shooting

A Canada woman is now even more grateful for her silicone boob implants after they saved her life when her boyfriend spazzed out and shot her.

via Toronto Sun

The victim of a shooting at the hands of her ex-boyfriend said Wednesday her breast implants saved her from serious harm.

“My implants took the brunt of the force,” Eileen Likness said at the man’s trial.

Likness said a bullet fired from Fernando (Frank) Chora’s 9mm handgun grazed her right arm before travelling through both her surgically enhanced breasts and through her left forearm.

She said the projectile, which entered her right breast, grazed her chest plate and exited her left breast, destroyed her implants.

Chora faces charges of attempted murder and aggravated assault with a weapon in connection with the incident.

Guess they might as well be all purpose if you’re gonna have em, right?

Two And A Half Men’s Angus T. Jones Apologizes For His Silly Comments

Angus T. Jones released a statement apologizing for talking about his show earlier this week. While lots of folks have been wondering if he jumped on that crazy train, it seems Angus put the cup of kool-aid down and realized that $8 milli he’s making a year looks pretty good…even if his show is ‘filth’.

According to TMZ, he’s got 99 problems and losin’ his job may be one:

“I have been the subject of much discussion, speculation and commentary over the past 24 hours.

While I cannot address everything that has been said or right every misstatement or misunderstanding, there is one thing I want to make clear. Without qualification, I am grateful to and have the highest regard and respect for all of the wonderful people on Two and Half Men with whom I have worked and over the past ten years who have become an extension of my family.

Chuck Lorre, Peter Roth and many others at Warner Bros. and CBS are responsible for what has been one of the most significant experiences in my life to date. I thank them for the opportunity they have given and continue to give me and the help and guidance I have and expect to continue to receive from them.

I also want all of the crew and cast on our show to know how much I personally care for them and appreciate their support, guidance and love over the years. I grew up around them and know that the time they spent with me was in many instances more than with their own families. I learned life lessons from so many of them and will never forget how much positive impact they have had on my life.

I apologize if my remarks reflect me showing indifference to and disrespect of my colleagues and a lack of appreciation of the extraordinary opportunity of which I have been blessed. I never intended that.”

Did he just go back on everything he was trying to stand up for???

Four Gay Men Are Suing Ex-Therapists Who Promised To Help ‘Turn Them Straight’!!

It was worth a shot, wasn’t it?!?!

A group of men are taking therapists to court for deceiving them after the promise to help them ‘overcome unwanted attractions’ failed…SMH.

According to The New York Times,

In New Jersey on Tuesday, four gay men who tried the therapy filed a civil suit against a prominent counseling group, charging it with deceptive practices under the state’s Consumer Fraud Act.

The former clients said they were emotionally scarred by false promises of inner transformation and humiliating techniques that included stripping naked in front of the counselor and beating effigies of their mothers. They paid thousands of dollars in fees over time, they said, only to be told that the lack of change in their feelings was their own fault.

Since the 1970s, when mainstream mental health associations stopped branding homosexuality as a disorder, a small network of renegade therapists, conservative religious leaders, and self-identified “life coaches” have continued to argue that it is not inborn, but an aberration rooted in childhood trauma. Homosexuality is caused, these therapists say, by a stifling of normal masculine development, often by distant fathers and overbearing mothers, or by early physical abuse.

But leading scientific and medical groups say that the theories of homosexuality are unfounded and that there is no evidence that core inner-urges can be changed. They also warn that the therapy can, in the words of the American Psychiatric Association, cause “depression, anxiety, and self-destructive behavior” and “reinforce self-hatred already experienced by the patient.”

One former patient in the suit, Michael Ferguson, 30, who is now a doctoral candidate in neuroscience at the University of Utah, sought help from Jonah in 2008. He tried to battle his homosexuality, he said, when he was a practicing Mormon who believed that only those in a heterosexual marriage could achieve eternal bliss.

“It becomes fraudulent, even cruel,” he said in an interview. “To say that if you really want to change you could — that’s an awful thing to tell somebody.”

“I was encouraged to develop anger and rage toward my parents,” he added. “The notion that your parents caused this is a horrible lie. They ask you to blame your mother for being loving and wonderful.”

Another former patient in the suit, Chaim Levin, 23, grew up in an Orthodox Jewish community in Brooklyn where, he said, being gay seemed unthinkable.

Referred to Jonah by a rabbi when he was 18, Mr. Levin began attending weekend retreats at $650 each. For a year and a half, he had weekly private sessions with Mr. Downing as well as weekly group sessions. He quit, he said, after Mr. Downing had him remove his clothes and touch himself, saying it would help him reconnect with his masculinity.

Mr. Levin said that he was abused by a relative between the ages of 6 and 10 and that Mr. Goldberg and Mr. Downing blamed the abuse for his homosexual attractions. “Saying the abuse made you gay is terrible,” Mr. Levin said. “Once I accepted that I was gay, I was able to focus on the more serious problem of a history of abuse.”

Do you think it’s worth the ‘effort’ for men to try therapy in order to change their feelings for other men?
