[VIDEO] Occupy Cal Berkeley 11/9/11

Many students at Cal State University Berkeley were protesting and faced some brutality coming from the police which was, in my opinion, uncalled for. The administration on campus had said it would not tolerate these protests which led to the police even being involved in the first place. Having a campus like Berkeley not allow its students to protest in regards to issues they feel strongly about seems rather unethical.

The encampment, approved in a nearly unanimous general assembly vote by the protest’s participants, was formed to show solidarity with the national Occupy movement but focused on the increased privatization of the UC system, according to Amanda Armstrong, a UC Berkeley head steward for UAW Local 2865 — a union representing graduate student instructors — and organizer of the event.

This movement is not going to just end because the police are acting defensively, in fact, this is giving those protesters ammunition to keep fighting for their right and freedoms as citizens of the United States Of America. We live her and appreciate our freedoms, but we also have the right to speak up and have our voices heard when we don’t agree with the economical and political decisions being made by those in charge.

Sadly there were arrests in Berkeley, but this doesn’t come as a shock. Hopefully fewer people are hurt and more changes are made so we stop seeing our peers being jailed and injured because they want change in our country.

Woman Disfigured After Meth Lab Explosion Caught Making Meth AGAIN

Heather Raybon, 31, was already in a lot of trouble after the first illegal meth lab that she was at, blew up, and disfigured her face completely. In 2004, her face was left with burn scars making her rather unattractive. You would think something like this would teach one a lesson. Unfortunately, she was caught AGAIN manufacturing the drug in another illegal meth lab.

Police raided a trailer in Milton, Florida, trying to serve a warrant to Brian Mauldin when they came upon Ms. Raybon. A chemical smell was so strong that police were well aware of the illegal activity that was taking place. These dumbass meth heads also left all of their drug paraphernalia in plain view, which gave officers enough evidence to take them in right then and there.

Detectives also found 13 grams of meth powder, 32 grams of meth oil and an active ‘one pot’ meth lab that the couple had attempted to hide.

A small metal pill bottle was found in Raybon’s purse. Its contents allegedly tested positive for meth.

Fire crews were called to the trailer home to dismantle the active lab due to the threat of fire or explosion.

Raybon and William Hindall, 30, who was inside the trailer, were arrested and charged with trafficking methamphetamine, possession of felony drug equipment and possession of listed chemicals to manufacture meth.

Even after receiving multiple facial surgeries within seven years, Raybon was so hooked on methamphetamine that she was willing to risk her life, yet again, to make this disgusting drug. I guess when you disfigure your face as bad as she had and hooked on meth, not much else matters.

The whole irony of this situation is that the police are still looking for Mauldin, the gentleman they came to arrest. Lesson here, don’t make fucking meth. Not only is it dirty, addicting and dangerous, it almost always leads to being arrested. And could you imagine going to prison looking like Ms. Raybon?

Teacher Packs 2 Beers And Plum In Lunchbox Before Crashing Her Car In School Lot

A teacher from Lee County was apparently under the influence when she had a minor crash in the parking lot of the Dunbar Middle School where she was currently employed. Christine Murgueytio was driving her white Kia when she hit another car that was parked in the school lot.

The SRO told deputies that Murgueytio might have been impaired because an eyewitness had said that she was stumbling and that her speech was “thick tongued.”

Ms. Murgueytio had told police that she was seemingly intoxicated due to the Ambien that she had taken the night before. After being asked to do a field sobriety test, the teacher agreed but asked that she be taken to the back lot where co-workers and students wouldn’t see this happening. Unfortunately, she failed all four tests and was taken into custody based upon those results.

And as the deputy was gathering her things from her car, according to the arrest report, he found two beer cans in her lunch box next to some uneaten plums.

This drunken teacher has also provided a urine sample that was placed into evidence and has bailed out on bond. Fortunately, this teacher was caught doing something most Americans can understand, being drunk. Unlike most of her peers who are sleeping with students these days, she seems rather tame.

She was just trying to keep her buzz on at school, hence the beers in her lunchbox. She only brought two, which I believe should be taken into consideration. I mean, hell, if that was me, I would have brought an entire 12-pack and possibly parked on top of another vehicle as opposed to having a minor accident.

Although, we could also choose to believe that Ms.Murgueytio was attempting to give her students a life lesson in drinking and driving and the repercussions of your actions. And for that, I was to applaud her actions.

Manly Rugby Player Has Stroke And becomes Gay Hairdresser

Although I am inclined to believe this article can’t be true, I still feel inclined to let people know about this. It is just too weird to not write about.

After a 19st Rugby player suffered from a stroke during practice, he suddenly awoke as a different man altogether…a gay man. Chris Birch was a 26-year-old rugby player that had just proposed to his girlfriend and worked as a banker before becoming the feminine gay hairdresser who no longer fancied the vag.

He was taken to the Royal Gwent hospital where his girlfriend and family waited for news – but said: ‘I was gay when I woke up and I still am.’

His friends were stunned by the dramatic changes to his personality, especially his change in sexuality.

Chris said: ‘It sounds strange but when I came round I immediately felt different.

‘I wasn’t interested in women any more. I was definitely gay.

‘I had never been attracted to a man before – I’d never even had any gay friends. But I didn’t care about who I was before, I had to be true to my feelings.’

This lucky son of a bitch! He got to grow up being a normal jock and living life without being bullied for his sexuality, and woke up gay at an age that being a homosexual is fun, exciting, and easy to make friends. In my opinion, he got the best of both worlds, and he looks happy because he probably feels the same.

After realizing that he no longer enjoyed watching sports yet alone playing rugby with all of his old buddies, he decided to quit his job and become a hairdresser. He also began dating a man who he met at a bar (which I’m assuming was a gay bar) and looks drastically different from his old butch self.

Chris, of Ystrad Mynach, south Wales, said: ‘Suddenly, I hated everything about my old life. I didn’t get on with my friends, I hated sport and found my job boring.

‘I started to take more pride in my appearance, bleached my hair and started working out.

‘I went from a 19st skinhead to a 11st preened man.

‘People I used to know barely recognised me and with my new look I became even more confident.’

The weird part is now his family is having to come to terms with the fact that their son is gay due to a stroke. Whether I believe this or not, is up in the air, but I can’t imagine having to understand that an illness made him this way. Really puts a damper on thinking being gay is okay and something you just are. I hope to God he didn’t fake this shit, because he’d really be fucked up is this was just an easier way for him to come out.

Now he lives with his boyfriend, Jack Powell, 19, above the salon that he is currently employed at. Apparently the neurologist that he spoke with said this could be due to the fact that the stroke open up different areas in his brain, which would be a pretty interesting study. Maybe the more open your mind is, the more accepting of just being you, without inhibitions you are, which would be awesome.

Chris said: ‘I think I’m happier than ever, so I don’t regret the accident. I’m nothing like the old Chris now and although I’m sorry it’s upset my family, I wouldn’t change a thing.’ 

Stroke association spokesman Joe Korner said: ‘Strokes can have a big effect on individuals and lead to personality changes.

‘During recovery the brain makes new neural connections which can trigger things people weren’t aware of such as accent, language or perhaps a different sexuality.

‘Whether or not the stroke turned Chris gay, or whether he was gay anyway but unaware of it, his experience seems to be a positive one, which is great.’

[VIDEO] 2 MMA Fighters Take Down Robber In Los Angeles Hotel

Youtube -

Los Angeles: On November 2, 2011, at around 11:40 p.m., Rampart Division officers responded to a radio call of an “Assault suspect armed with a gun” at a hotel located in the 300 block of N. Vermont Avenue. When the officer’s arrived, they saw a man on the ground being held by two citizens. 

Shortly before police arrived, the desk clerk at a local hotel took notice of a man with a back pack who walked into the lobby and began to suspiciously look around. He asked the clerk about the price of a room, and then pointed a gun at him and demanded money. The suspect walked around the counter where the clerk stood and told him to open the cash register. The clerk, fearing he was going to be shot, opened the register and gave the suspect money. 

During the robbery, an elevator door opened, and two hotel guests who happened to be martial arts experts visiting Los Angeles from Oregon for a martial arts’ tournament heard the clerk’s cry for help and immediately took action. The pair grabbed the suspect who was holding a gun in his right hand. During the tussle with the suspect, the Good Samaritans repeatedly asked him to drop the gun and stop struggling. The pair was finally able to wrestle the gun from the suspect and took him to the ground with a leg sweep and then held him on the ground until Rampart Division officers arrived. 

The suspect, identified as 31-year-old Luis Rosales, a resident of Los Angeles, was taken into custody without further incident. In addition, a loaded 9mm handgun and the money taken from the cash register were found inside Rosales’ backpack. Rosales was booked for armed robbery with a firearm. His bail is set at $101,250.

[VIDEO] Conrad Murray Guilty Of Involuntary Manslaughter In Death Of Michael Jackson

To say you’re shocked to hear this verdict, would be ridiculous. Conrad Murray was administering drugs that are not made for consumption while at home.

After deliberating for two days, the jurors came back with a guilty verdict.

Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor handed the case to the seven-man, five-woman jury Thursday after closing arguments by prosecutor David Walgren and lead defense lawyer Ed Chernoff. Over nearly six weeks of testimony, jurors heard from 33 prosecution witnesses and 16 defense witnesses. More than 340 exhibits were available in the jury room as the panel mulled a verdict.

Jackson, 50, died on June 25, 2009, of an overdose of the surgical anesthetic propofol, aggravated by effects of the sedative lorazepam. Murray, 58, was charged with a single count of involuntary manslaughter. He pleaded not guilty.

So I know I’m going to royally piss quite a few of you off, but I feel this is my blog and I can voice my opinion as I choose. Michael Jackson may or may not be guilty of the child molestation claims, but personally, I feel it isn’t that far-fetched. While the man did make some amazing music and was a highly talented artist, I feel due to his childhood problems, he himself was a sick man. Sadly, I blame his upbringing on this, but seeing as he was 50-years-old when he died, he was an adult and I believe his actions reflected the life of a mature, sick child.

Seeing as he had more money than imaginable at one point, he would be willing to spend lavishly. This spending included paying off people to do things for him that were sometimes illegal; Conrad Murray falls into this category. If he didn’t administer the propofol to Mr. Jackson, somebody would have likely agreed to do the job and get paid the money. Yes, he was being a bit negligent and for that I believe he deserves to be punished. I agree with the verdict, but felt I must voice my opinion into the entire matter while I had the chance.

Point being, if you’re asked to do something illegal by someone who is rich and had a shitty childhood, DON’T DO IT! The money is not worth it, especially if you’re convicted of manslaughter.

Cocaine Dealer Gets Deported To Mexico By Pretending He’s An Illegal Immigrant

Jaime Alvarado, 27, is an American citizen, but after being caught dealing cocaine, he decided to tell police that he was an illegal immigrant in an attempt at being deported back to Mexico instead. He said he was Mexican Saul Quiroz and pleaded guilty to having both cocaine and heroin and intending on distributing.

He lied about his birth date and claimed he was an illegal immigrant TWICE in front of judges.

Alvarado was facing a sentence of up to 15 years but instead was deported, according to court records.

After being deported, Alvarado who was from Salt Lake City, Utah, returned back to the US, using his real passport. If he would have stayed out of trouble, he could have avoided having been caught, but instead, he resorted back to his old ways. He was arrested on charges that were related to a previous case.

A letter that he had written to the judge explained that he did in fact lie about his identity, and asked for leniency because his family had depended on him.

He wrote: ‘I have a good job right now, a lot of little girls waiting for me and a family that will support me. It’s my first offence and my last. I want to spend the rest of my life with my kids!’

Although he was released, he was again charged in Utah’s 3rd District Court. Unfortunately, he failed to report to state authorities and now a warrant has been issued for his arrest. I don’t know about you, but I’d be willing to bet he went back to Mexico.

[VIDEO] Senator Gretchen Whitmer Responds to Pro-Bullying Legislation in Michigan

A bill has been passed in Michigan by the Senate’s Republicans that essentially legalizes bullying. The bill was passed in a vote of 26-11, receiving no democratic votes. Ultimately it gives teachers, fellow students, school employees, volunteers and parents, the right to decided that bullying was okay if there was a religious or moral reason.

This seems ridiculous because essentially being gay is “immoral” and “non-religious” in many persons opinions, and will therefore allow any gay kid to continue being bullied because of their immoral acts.

Sadly, the bill is names for a Michigan teen who was bullied so badly he felt inclined to commit suicide. The students name was Matt Epling, and Gretchen does a great job at pointing out that this teen wouldn’t have even been saved by the bill that is named after him.

The Michigan Messenger reports:

In a floor speech Minority Leader in the Senate Gretchen Whitmer (D-​East Lansing) slammed the Republicans over the amended language.

“Here today you claim to be protecting kids and you’re actually putting them in more danger,” Whitmer said. “But bullying is not OK. We should be protecting public policy that protects kids — all kids, from bullies — all bullies. But instead you have set us back further by creating a blueprint for bullying.”

“Shockingly, Senate Bill 137 will do more harm than good. Senate Republicans left our students behind in favor of partisan politics and passed a bill that actually allows more bullying. Students and parents expect lawmakers to lead the charge against bullying, but instead Republicans made ideology more important than school safety,” said Emily Dievendorf, policy director of Equality Michigan. “Research clearly shows that only states with enumerated bills see a reduction in bullying. We need a bill that mentions the most affected populations and requires statewide reporting of bullying and harassment. SB 137 simply does nothing to reduce bullying in our schools.”

“To the families of the ten reported suicides that were directly linked to bullying and the countless others that have gone unreported, this bill adds insult to injury,” said Senator Glenn Anderson (D-​Westland). “I have been working for years to pass legislation to provide a safe school environment for all of our students. This bill goes in the exact opposite direction and in fact provides a license to bully.”

The legislation passed 26 – 11. It now moves to the Republican-​controlled House.

“I am ashamed that this could be Michigan’s bill on anti-​bullying, when in fact it is a ‘bullying is OK in MI’ law,” said Kevin Epling, an East Lansing parent whose son committed suicide as a result of bullying. His comment was posted on his Facebook page.

In an interview he had more to say.

“For years the line has been ‘no protected classes,’ and the first thing they throw in — very secretly — was a very protected class, and limited them from repercussions of their own actions. This line has no purpose within this piece of legislation except to incite ‘religious bigotry’ within our schools. Schools are trying to build more tolerant students and future leaders, not automatons blindly following misguided adult leaders who seek a return to a 1950′s America,” Epling said. “This will only cause unrest in schools and give schools one more thing to deal with rather than trying to solve a problem. Also it is not a very well thought out ploy, as in some areas of the state the tables might be turned on the ‘anointed ones’ they seek to keep from being punished. This is just very wrong and the way it was done was wrong as well. It was bullying at its best.”

 

This is pathetic and a sad day in which we have not moved forward with anti-hate, but rather taken a huge step backwards. We are suppose to be teaching our children that everyone is to be loved and respected, not the other way around. This bill gives righteous young people the freedom to bully a classmate if they see their differences (gay, atheism, etc.) as a reason to insult and degrade another. Yet, if one righteous young person insults another rightwous young person, this bill will make that a crime. Wouldn’t you think that righteous individuals wouldn’t be inclined to bully anyway? Aren’t they expected to respect, love and not judge their peers for that is what God would want?

Truly heartbreaking.
