Nephew Gouged Out Uncle’s Eyes Out After Fight Over TV Remote On New Year’s Eve

article-0-0F56F7EF00000578-763_468x471

Exulam Holman, 32, got so angry on New Year’s Eve with his Uncle, Melvin Clifford, 62, that he gouged out his eyes before pushing him down the stairs. The fight had initially begun when they had an argument over the remote control.

Apparently both Holman and his uncle lived in the home together. After the victim, Clifford, was able to call 911, police officers had come to the home and were able to get more details.

A sheriff’s deputy found him at the bottom of the basement stairs with his hands stretched in front of him and blood streaming from his face, saying ”Please help. I cannot see’ according to a the sheriff’s  report.

Mr Clifford’s eyeballs were swollen, dislocated and protruding a quarter-inch from his sockets.

The victim told police that his nephew, Exulam Holman, 32, with whom he lives, broke the remote and pushed him to the kitchen floor.

He said Holman then straddled him and ‘inserted his thumbs into his eyes … and attempted to pry the eyeballs out of the sockets,’ before pushing him down the stairs. The report noted that Holman weighs 280 pounds, about 140 pounds more than his uncle, and is 5 inches taller

Holman wasn’t willing to go easy and was found locked in a bedroom. Luckily, he was arrested for aggravated domestic battery without causing any more fights. He was later held on $1 million bond.

Along with the aggravated domestic battery, he was charged with battery of a person over the age of 60, which holds the same punishment for the first charge, 3 to 7 years in prison.

Sadly, Mr. Clifford will forever be blind in his left eye, and after an operation will only have slight vision in his right eye.

Holman and his uncle live outside Joliet, which is about 40 miles southwest of Chicago

In 1999, Holman allegedly was beaten by a Joliet police officer who was breaking up a dice game, the newspaper reported. He eventually received a $100,000 settlement from the city, and the officer was fired.

Wow. He won a $100,000 settlement and is still off fucking around and beating the crap out of an elderly man, his very own Uncle. This little shit finally got what he’s always deserved and will have to deal with prison life for what he’s done; Not just to his Uncle, but for all the other crap he probably got away with.

Brandon Goes Missing At Runyon, Police And Media Refuse To Believe He’s Home And Okay

brandon_olterman

Many media outlets have informed the public of a young man who went missing in Runyon Canyon on Sunday, January 1st, 2012. The young man, Brandon Olterman, 26, did go missing for about 20 hours when his friend, Logan, reported him missing. How do I know this? Logan is my assistant here at work and is the one who called the police about his friend. After he was able to get a hold of Brandon, who left Runyon on his own, had a dead cell phone and wasn’t able to get into his apartment, he reported to the police that all was fine.

Unfortunately, he is now being featured as STILL MISSING on many sites, including LA Weekly, MSNBC, FaceBook, the LAPD, etc. The guy is not missing and Logan has told this to every person who has called, which trust me, has been a few. He sits next to me here at work and I can’t tell you how many journalists have called and been informed that he’s fine before I see another article posted about this poor guy who’s gone missing and they are fearful for his health and safety.

I have never heard of a case of missing persons being so important that they refuse to believe the man who went missing after he says he is fine. If you are told the guy is no longer missing from the source who reported him missing as well as the missing victim, you should no longer pursue writing an article or feature it in a news report. I am literally in awe.

Here is the article posted on an LA Weekly Blog:

A young children’s book illustrator and graphic artist from Los Angeles has gone missing after taking off for a hike in Runyon Canyon on Sunday afternoon.

Brandon Thomas Olterman, 26, is currently being sought by the LAPD’s Missing Persons Unit. “If anyone knows & has heard from children’s book illustrator Brandon Olterman please let me know,” says a friend and fellow artist on Twitter. “He was lost in Runyon Canyon yesterday — and no one has heard from him since.”

According to Olterman’s Facebook, he attended both high school and college in Ohio before moving to Los Angeles. His last public Facebook activity was on December 27…

 ​Police describe Olterman as a 5-foot-10-inch white male weighing 135 pounds. An LAPD release says he “was last seen wearing a dark color button shirt with a white t-shirt underneath, blue jeans and tennis shoes” before setting off to explore the Runyon Canyon hiking trails.

“Mr. Olterman has not been seen or heard from since and his family is extremely concerned for his welfare,” says the release.

Anyone with any information on his whereabouts can contact Detective Carlton at 213-996-1800.

Olterman’s LinkedIn profile says he works as a sales rep for “California Marketing Team” and a graphic designer for “ROAR Clothing.” More of his art can be viewed on his Tumblr or DeviantArt account. And here’s a quote from his RawArtists.org profile:

“I’m really inspired by old storybook illustrations. There’s a balance of innocence and darkness to them sometimes. There are an infinite amount of ‘things’ in this world, and they all have potential to be sources of inspiration. Every aspect of life is amusing; good, bad, and all the gray areas too.”

According to the Runyon Canyon Park website, it’s “unstaffed, unlocked and open from dawn to dusk.” And an employee at the L.A. Department of Recreation and Parks notes that the canyon has “a lengthy trail, and it’s mountainous, so you can really fall anywhere.”

Ricky Gervais Is Witty And Intelligent.

article-2077757-0F435EC100000578-380_468x744

Many Christian Twitter followers are highly offended by Ricky Gervais and have made their outrage apparent with tweets to and about the comedic atheist.

The Office creator, 50, has often spoken of his lack of faith, but his appearance on the cover of New Humanist magazine in a Jesus Christ-style pose has pushed a few over the edge:

In the magazine there is also an article that features an interview that was done with Mr. Gervais. Here he discusses a new movie he’s working on called ‘Afterlife’ where he will be playing the role of ‘God‘.

Ricky reveals he plays the religious leader as ‘an arrogant, wisecracking son of a b****, who thinks he’s the best thing since sliced bread’ in the new show.

And he says despite the touchy subject the programme isn’t meant to be taken seriously.

 

‘He (God in the show) also loves welcoming atheists to heaven with a smug grin on his face. He likes atheists deep down though. Or rather he likes good atheists,’ Ricky muses. 

‘He admires the fact that they were moral people even though they didn’t believe they would ever be rewarded with everlasting life. It’s not anti-religion, it’s just fun.’

He adds: ‘I used to believe in God. The Christian one, that is. (There are a few thousand to choose from. But I was born in a country where the dominant religion was Christianity so I believed in that one. Isn’t it weird how that always happens?)

‘Luckily I was also interested in science and nature. And reason and logic. And honesty and truth. And equality and fairness.

This man is a role model in my eyes and I love that he is not backing down just because he’s pissed a few people off. Instead, he’s stood up for what he believes, which is disbelief. He’s not a cruel man and makes it that much more clear that atheists are just like Christians, with one small difference: God. Whether we believe in something does not determine our actions or our sense of morality. A good person is good regardless of their beliefs, and the same goes for bad people.

The sarcasm he enlists to make his points about religion are very compelling. His compassion for humanity is apparent. His talent (who some would say was a gift from God) is overwhelming. Don’t deny him applause for the greatness he is and has done, simply because he thinks differently than you. And if you do choose to be so small-minded, you might want to ask God to forgive you for placing judgment on others.

“My Occupy LA Arrest” By Patrick Meighan, Writer On ‘Family Guy’

My Occupy LA Arrest, by Patrick Meighan

My name is Patrick Meighan, and I’m a husband, a father, a writer on the Fox animated sitcom “Family Guy”, and a member of the Unitarian Universalist Community Church of Santa Monica.

I was arrested at about 1 a.m. Wednesday morning with 291 other people at Occupy LA. I was sitting in City Hall Park with a pillow, a blanket, and a copy of Thich Nhat Hanh’s “Being Peace” when 1,400 heavily-armed LAPD officers in paramilitary SWAT gear streamed in. I was in a group of about 50 peaceful protestors who sat Indian-style, arms interlocked, around a tent (the symbolic image of the Occupy movement). The LAPD officers encircled us, weapons drawn, while we chanted “We Are Peaceful” and “We Are Nonviolent” and “Join Us.”

As we sat there, encircled, a separate team of LAPD officers used knives to slice open every personal tent in the park. They forcibly removed anyone sleeping inside, and then yanked out and destroyed any personal property inside those tents, scattering the contents across the park. They then did the same with the communal property of the Occupy LA movement. For example, I watched as the LAPD destroyed a pop-up canopy tent that, until that moment, had been serving as Occupy LA’s First Aid and Wellness tent, in which volunteer health professionals gave free medical care to absolutely anyone who requested it. As it happens, my family had personally contributed that exact canopy tent to Occupy LA, at a cost of several hundred of my family’s dollars. As I watched, the LAPD sliced that canopy tent to shreds, broke the telescoping poles into pieces and scattered the detritus across the park. Note that these were the objects described in subsequent mainstream press reports as “30 tons of garbage” that was “abandoned” by Occupy LA: personal property forcibly stolen from us, destroyed in front of our eyes and then left for maintenance workers to dispose of while we were sent to prison.

When the LAPD finally began arresting those of us interlocked around the symbolic tent, we were all ordered by the LAPD to unlink from each other (in order to facilitate the arrests). Each seated, nonviolent protester beside me who refused to cooperate by unlinking his arms had the following done to him: an LAPD officer would forcibly extend the protestor’s legs, grab his left foot, twist it all the way around and then stomp his boot on the insole, pinning the protestor’s left foot to the pavement, twisted backwards. Then the LAPD officer would grab the protestor’s right foot and twist it all the way the other direction until the non-violent protestor, in incredible agony, would shriek in pain and unlink from his neighbor.

It was horrible to watch, and apparently designed to terrorize the rest of us. At least I was sufficiently terrorized. I unlinked my arms voluntarily and informed the LAPD officers that I would go peacefully and cooperatively. I stood as instructed, and then I had my arms wrenched behind my back, and an officer hyperextended my wrists into my inner arms. It was super violent, it hurt really really bad, and he was doing it on purpose. When I involuntarily recoiled from the pain, the LAPD officer threw me face-first to the pavement. He had my hands behind my back, so I landed right on my face. The officer dropped with his knee on my back and ground my face into the pavement. It really, really hurt and my face started bleeding and I was very scared. I begged for mercy and I promised that I was honestly not resisting and would not resist.

My hands were then zipcuffed very tightly behind my back, where they turned blue. I am now suffering nerve damage in my right thumb and palm.

I was put on a paddywagon with other nonviolent protestors and taken to a parking garage in Parker Center. They forced us to kneel on the hard pavement of that parking garage for seven straight hours with our hands still tightly zipcuffed behind our backs. Some began to pass out. One man rolled to the ground and vomited for a long, long time before falling unconscious. The LAPD officers watched and did nothing.

At 9 a.m. we were finally taken from the pavement into the station to be processed. The charge was sitting in the park after the police said not to. It’s a misdemeanor. Almost always, for a misdemeanor, the police just give you a ticket and let you go. It costs you a couple hundred dollars. Apparently, that’s what happened with most every other misdemeanor arrest in LA that day.

With us Occupy LA protestors, however, they set bail at $5,000 and booked us into jail. Almost none of the protesters could afford to bail themselves out. I’m lucky and I could afford it, except the LAPD spent all day refusing to actually *accept* the bail they set. If you were an accused murderer or a rapist in LAPD custody that day, you could bail yourself right out and be back on the street, no problem. But if you were a nonviolent Occupy LA protestor with bail money in hand, you were held long into the following morning, with absolutely no access to a lawyer.

I spent most of my day and night crammed into an eight-man jail cell, along with sixteen other Occupy LA protesters. My sleeping spot was on the floor next to the toilet.

Finally, at 2:30 the next morning, after twenty-five hours in custody, I was released on bail. But there were at least 200 Occupy LA protestors who couldn’t afford the bail. The LAPD chose to keep those peaceful, non-violent protesters in prison for two full days… the absolute legal maximum that the LAPD is allowed to detain someone on misdemeanor charges.

As a reminder, Antonio Villaraigosa has referred to all of this as “the LAPD’s finest hour.”

So that’s what happened to the 292 women and men were arrested last Wednesday. Now let’s talk about a man who was not arrested last Wednesday. He is former Citigroup CEO Charles Prince. Under Charles Prince, Citigroup was guilty of massive, coordinated securities fraud.

Citigroup spent years intentionally buying up every bad mortgage loan it could find, creating bad securities out of those bad loans and then selling shares in those bad securities to duped investors. And then they sometimes secretly bet *against* their *own* bad securities to make even more money. For one such bad Citigroup security, Citigroup executives were internally calling it, quote, “a collection of dogshit”. To investors, however, they called it, quote, “an attractive investment rigorously selected by an independent investment adviser”.

This is fraud, and it’s a felony, and the Charles Princes of the world spent several years doing it again and again: knowingly writing bad mortgages, and then packaging them into fraudulent securities which they then sold to suckers and then repeating the process. This is a big part of why your property values went up so fast. But then the bubble burst, and that’s why our economy is now shattered for a generation, and it’s also why your home is now underwater. Or at least mine is.

Anyway, if your retirement fund lost a decade’s-worth of gains overnight, this is why.

If your son’s middle school has added furlough days because the school district can’t afford to keep its doors open for a full school year, this is why.

If your daughter has come out of college with a degree only to discover that there are no jobs for her, this is why.

But back to Charles Prince. For his four years of in charge of massive, repeated fraud at Citigroup, he received fifty-three million dollars in salary and also received another ninety-four million dollars in stock holdings. What Charles Prince has *not* received is a pair of zipcuffs. The nerves in his thumb are fine. No cop has thrown Charles Prince into the pavement, face-first. Each and every peaceful, nonviolent Occupy LA protester arrested last week has has spent more time sleeping on a jail floor than every single Charles Prince on Wall Street, combined.

The more I think about that, the madder I get. What does it say about our country that nonviolent protesters are given the bottom of a police boot while those who steal hundreds of billions, do trillions worth of damage to our economy and shatter our social fabric for a generation are not only spared the zipcuffs but showered with rewards?

In any event, believe it or not, I’m really not angry that I got arrested. I chose to get arrested. And I’m not even angry that the mayor and the LAPD decided to give non-violent protestors like me a little extra shiv in jail (although I’m not especially grateful for it either).

I’m just really angry that every single Charles Prince wasn’t in jail with me.

Thank you for letting me share that anger with you today.

[VIDEO] Man In Turkish Psychiatric Hospital Scratches His Roommate’s Eyes Out Making Him Blind

Seeing a man commit such a heinous act, unprovoked, is insanely shocking. The video is 11 minutes long, but includes the victim escaping from the room and the suspect seemingly unfazed by the incident that had just occurred.

Gürhan Dalaklı, a 40-year-old’s ex-serviceman of the Turkish army was sent by a court to the ‘Neurological Diseases Hospital’ for psychiatric evaluation attacks his roommate and carves his eyes out.

All of this took place at the Bakırköy Mental and Neurological Diseases Hospital in June of 2011. Dalakli had been experiencing nightmares after witnessing many of his friends being murdered while involved in the fight against the Mardin terrorist organization, while serving in the army. What a tragic series of events.

[VIDEO] Duck Sauce – Big Bad Wolf a.k.a. The Strangest Video I Have Ever Seen

DJ duo Duck Sauce is most famous for their tribute video for their song “Barbara Streisand” which can be seen on YouTube and has been seen nearly 63 million times. This time, they have done something a bit different, and quite frankly, a little more creepy. I felt a bit odd while watching this, although I did laugh and watch through until the end as well.

The band makes their appearance in a rather unusual way. In fact they take the term “dick head” to a new level and are witty in their expression. The song is catchy and has come about just in time for Halloween.

“We shot the whole video with Armand and A-Trak basically with their heads between the legs of these actors, and they were wearing these kind of green-screen bodysuits, so in post, we just removed their bodies,” video director Keith Schofield said.

Although it was one of the strangest videos I’ve seen, I must admit that I might go ahead and watch it again.
