Wait until they get aload of me!

Owners of Brett Farve rejoice!

(I am one of those owners who had to bench him, even though I was able to steal him in the 9th round of a ten team draft)

MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota Vikings receiver Randy Moss was arrested Tuesday after being accused of bumping a police traffic officer with his car.

The officer tried to stop Moss from making an illegal turn, and Moss used his car to slowly push the officer along the street, police spokeswoman Cyndi Barrington said.

Barrington said an assault charge was being considered.

The officer was not seriously hurt, WCCO-TV reported

Where is Ludacris when you need him?

Maybe we should extend an Amber warning to all the skeezers and skanks and scallywags (all better known as hoes, and like method man and redman, I mean it in a good way)

Damn it feels good to see people up on it...but not in a stalkerish peeping tom way...BTW, that is Miss KY 2008...wondering if she will need her States abbreviation after messing around with Randy...?

The New England Patriots completed a trade that sent Pro Bowl WR Randy Moss to the Minnesota Vikings on Wednesday morning, ESPN, the NFL Network and Boston Herald reported.

The Vikings sent a third-round pick to the Patriots in return for Moss, who becomes a key weapon for Minnesota QB Brett Favre.

The teams had not yet confirmed the trade. But Vikings S Madieu Williams said on Twitter that the deal was “official.”

Moss returns to the team where he spent the first seven years of his career. Moss caught 574 passes for 9,142 yards and 90 TDs from 1998-2004 in Minnesota.

It leaves the Patriots and QB Tom Brady without the stretch-the-field wideout who set an NFL single-season record of 23 receiving TDs in 2007.

I'm mixing up the game! DB's take your vitamins, I'M BAAACCCKKK!

From the Patriots position, they were on the come-up.  First, they got more for the guy then what they paid for.  When he was dealt from the blogs favorite team, the RAIDERS, they only got a 4th round pick, because they were happy to get rid of his contract and his dour attitude. (We still miss what could have been here in Oakland Randy)  It is rare in the NFL that assets acquire more value later in their careers.  Second, they did not have to give him an expensive contract extension.

Moss did not get a contract extension from the Vikings as part of the deal, NFL Network reported.

ESPN reported that Patriots coach Bill Belichick spoke by phone to inform Moss of the trade on Wednesday morning. The network described their conversation as cordial.

For Favre, the trade gives him a serious receiving threat that he has long lobbied to acquire and that he has lacked this season with Sidney Rice injured. Favre, with the Packers in 2007, pushed the team to acquire Moss but lost out to the Patriots.

This is exactly what Father Time, I mean Favre needs to get the offense on a roll.  Soon, they will get Sidney Rice back and that offense will be firing on all cylinders.  You will have AP (not our boy tophatal, but Adrian Peterson) Headache (not the AND1 baller, but Percy Harvin) Moss, and Rice.  Plus, you have Shank Em at TE, so weapons are everywhere.

The receiver will return to New England on Oct. 31, when the Vikings visit Foxborough to the play Patriots (a game that occurs only once every eight years). Fox was already scheduled to broadcast that game nationally at 4:15 p.m. ET.

Moss’ final game in a New England uniform on Monday turned out to be his only in more than three years in which he did not catch a pass. The Herald reported that Moss had asked the Patriots to trade him after Week 1, when he had an outburst about his contract following a win against Cincinnati. Moss later apologized and said he and coach Belichick had cleared the air.

Moss, whose deal expires after the season, said after Week 1 that he wanted to stay with Patriots but added he thought this would be his final year in New England.

Moss is set to appear on Monday Night Football for the second straight week when the Vikings travel to play the New York Jets next week. He’ll likely be matched up again with Jets CBDarrelle Revis, who hasn’t played since tweaking his hamstring on a TD pass he allowed to Moss in Week 2.

Moss will be just second player to appear on MNF back to back. Keith Browner played for the San Francisco 49ers against the New York Giants on Oct. 5, 1987, then played for the Los Angeles Raiders against the Denver Broncos on Oct. 12 (viaESPN and Elias Sports Bureau).

Since the Vikings have already had their bye and the Patriots’ is Sunday, Moss could become the sixth player to play in 17 games if he plays in the rest of the Vikings’ contests.

This is another bonus to fantasy players who got jobbed this week by his unusual lack of effectiveness.  It is the functional equivalent of the “do-over” in backyard sports.  I guarantee that Favre will target him early and often…he is sure to be a “hit”!

Remember the plays Randy? Puff, Puff, PASS!

Hey, Do you still remember the plays Randy? Puff, Puff, PASS! That is your mistake Randy...its legal here in Cali!

All day yesterday, I thought about what we lost and he still hasn’t fully hit me yet. The music was inspiring, and mood changing. The poetry coming from Tupac could be a total attitude adjustment.

Your music still motivates others...the test of a true legend

A true artist/poet has been gone for 14 years yesterday and his music still inspires others to create good music and tell the stories of the streets that need to be heard by others.  It’s been a long time and that void has not and really will not be filled by others.  That is what makes the loss still so painful.  We need good music, and all we are getting is bubblegum rap for the most part.  We need Biggie, we need Tupac.

They were like brothers...it turned into a modern day Cain and Abel possibly

When I hear Dear Mama, I think of my own mother, who passed away over twenty years ago. That song as the ability to make me both happy and sad at the same time. It never fails to pull on th heartstrings.

Me and My Girlfriend always gets me to think about how Jay-Z stole my mans shit, and how clever he was with the word play to talk about the criminality and the love of firearms.

I get around brings back memories of college parties and going out to the club chasing the box. That was an immediate party song that would get people up and shaking.

While I have down down the spectrum to agnostic about religion, Hail Mary brings back time in the church as a little boy. Ronin and I used to be ushers in church and sing in the choir.  We needed forgiveness for the things that we did as kids.

I don’t know if we will have a poet in the same way as Tupac ever again. It really was disheartening to be watching TV in Hawaii this weekend and seeing the VH1 top 100 performers and to see Tupac in the low 60’s. Rap may not be your particular cup of tea, but to disrespect him and have Rage against the Machine, Cheap Trick and others ahead of him is ludicrous. But, rap music wasn’t even on this list the last time they did it, so it is baby steps…but Beyonce is ahead of him? child please…

We will never know what really happened that night in LV, but, I miss you and mourn would could have been.

At least it wasn't to the face...or mouth

Now, if it stopped before the grocery store, you would have simply thought that I was talking about a porn shoot, or maybe giving you too much information about my private life.  But, this happened in public.  At a grocery store.  What was this dude thinking?

GAITHERSBURG, Md – As a woman was leaving a Giant store a man sprayed liquid on her back. An examination revealed the liquid was human semen.

It happened at the Giant store located at 842 Muddy Branch Road on July 15, 2010.

Thanks for the investigative reporting.  I will not be going to that store…

Now, I wonder if everything is big there...like the back shot...

Witnesses saw the man get into a gray vehicle and drive away.

On July 29, 2010, the Gaithersburg Police Investigative Section arrested 28-year-old Michael Wayne Edwards, Jr. of the 17000 block of Downing Street in Gaithersburg. Edwards was charged with second degree assault with additional charges forthcoming.

After his arrest and interview it was learned that there are additional unidentified victims. If you believe you have been a victim of such a crime and have seen Edwards please contact Detective Corporal Word at 301-258-6400.

An arrest warrant was obtained for Edwards. Edwards was released on a $4,000 bond.

Well, at least he is not totally shiftless, as he had enough money(or friends and family) to bond him out on the ten percent tip.

Just to be safe, if I had FACEBOOK, I would friend Jesus...

But, here is the kicker.  They were beefing over a dude who was LOCKED UP! AKON style!

You know we are not ones to hate here, but the fact of the matter is that dude must have skills with the verbs or with lying the pipe, because he had these two chicken heads sprung to the point of violence.

(07-23) 22:38 PDT Pontiac, Mich. (AP) —

A Facebook feud between two women who claimed to love the same prison inmate led to a high-speed chase and a crash that critically injured one of the rivals, killed her friend and left the second rival facing murder charges.

Torrie Emery was arraigned Friday in Pontiac’s 50th District Court on multiple felonies, as friends of the dead woman were holding a car wash to pay for her funeral.

“It’s unbelievable,” said Pontiac police Chief Valard S. Gross told The Associated Press as he described the escalating dispute that ended with Wednesday’s deadly crash. “It’s just crazy.”

FACEBOOK and Twitter beef is not cute.  It solves nothing and makes you look like a fool for putting your business out there for all to see.

I just want beef to eat....

According to Gross, Emery, 23, and Danielle Booth, 20, had been feuding for some time, leading to an earlier police complaint. According to Emery’s family, the dispute was over a 23-year-old man now serving time in a Michigan prison.

On Wednesday, Emery was driving when she saw Booth in the passenger seat of a car driven by Alesha Abernathy and started chasing her, Gross said. Emery had her 3-year-old daughter in the car with her.

How are you going to chase someone and you have your three year old daughter in the car with you?  Plus, how are you fighting over some scrub in prison, not jail, but prison?

Don't worry, he is thinking of you, or maybe Big SAL...

Police Det. Paul McDougal, who was in an unmarked squad car, saw both vehicles rush by at speeds approaching 100 mph, Gross said. Before McDougal could reach them — and while a panicked Booth was on the phone with a police dispatcher — Abernathy ran a red light and plowed into a dump truck, knocking it onto its side but not injuring the truck’s driver.

The crash killed Abernathy and critically injured Booth, who was in the intensive care unit Friday at POH Regional Medical Center in Pontiac. Emery and her daughter weren’t hurt.

It's a little too late to cry now...

“How can you get that angry or that jealous, really, that you jeopardize the life of your 3-year-old?” Gross asked. “One person’s stupidity, and look at the repercussions. It’s just a ripple effect.”

Emery appeared on video at her arraignment Friday on charges of second-degree murder, assault with intent to do great bodily harm and child abuse. She indicated she would look for a lawyer.

Judge Preston Thomas ordered her jailed without bond and set her preliminary examination for next Thursday.

“We apologize to the family about what happened,” Emery’s aunt, Tamika White, said after the hearing. “This Facebook stuff is just a mess. They’re going on Facebook about a guy that neither one have — that’s in the penitentiary.”

“My sister didn’t mean to kill anybody,” said Traynea Emery, 19.

But, why is your sister and your niece so stupid?  What was she going to do when she got up to them?  Fight her?  Shout at her?  Those are all adult things to do. (sarcasm intended) Regardless of intent, she is still dead and she threatened the life of her child.  Now, she is going to be in prison without her child, family of the scrub she was beefing over.  Its Real Life When Keeping it Real Goes Wrong

Across town in the parking lot of Pete’s Coney Island restaurant, a group of Abernathy’s friends were holding a car wash to raise money for the funeral they said Abernathy’s family couldn’t afford.

“She was the center of attention,” said Brittany Carriti, 22, of Pontiac, a former classmate from Manley Alternative High School in Waterford. She and her friends had raised several hundred dollars by midday.

Abernathy was “always the one for whom the party started,” said another ex-classmate, Chandra Tiernan, 23, of Waterford.

While Abernathy knew about the dispute between Booth and Emery, she wasn’t involved in it, Tiernan said.

“She died over someone else’s problem,” Tiernan said.

(This version CORRECTS 5th paragraph to reflect that Emery, not Gross, had her child in the car with her.)

Criminals, line up and read off your number....

Damn,  they have to prove themselves innocent, not come in with that presumption.  That is a sad state of affairs in the world of Troy.

Every University of Southern Califonia football player must meet with school compliance officials by the end of next week, in what looks to be the school’s latest effort to curtail possible NCAA-outlawed activities for its student-athletes.

A notice posted in multiple locations around USC athletics headquarters Heritage Hall reminds players to bring current copies of their housing lease, car-related data and summer and academic year employment information to the meetings.

The first of the meetings — for wide receivers, tight ends and offensive linemen — was scheduled for Tuesday morning in the Heritage Hall auditorium. Defensive linemen and quarterbacks will meet with compliance officials Thursday morning.

Any other mistakes will be looked upon harshly.  But, why?  I mean, just because Joe McKnight’s girlfriend got a sweetheart deal on a car that she otherwise couldn’t afford?

Yep, she is paying the note on a Range Rover

We all know about Reggie Bush, but that was a one time occurrence, right? (according to Rivals.yahoo.com)

This was most likely taken during his junior year at USC

But documents and on-the-record interviews with sources close to the situation reveal that Bush and his family appear to have received financial benefits from Ornstein and a business associate. Those benefits include:

  • $595.20 in round-trip airfare from San Diego to Oakland in November 2005 for Bush’s stepfather, LaMar Griffin, his mother, Denise Griffin and younger brother to attend the USC-California game at Berkeley. The fees were charged to the credit card of Jamie Fritz, an employee of Ornstein. The document detailing the charges was provided by Lee Pfeifer, an estranged business associate of Ornstein’s.
  • $250.65 for limousine transportation from the Oakland airport to the Ritz-Carlton in San Francisco that November weekend for the Bush family, charged to Fritz, according to a document. Ornstein acknowledged both he and Bush’s family stayed at the luxury hotel.

Additionally, New Jersey memorabilia dealer Bob DeMartino alleges that Ornstein provided:

  • Suits for Bush’s stepfather and brother to wear during the Dec. 10, 2005 Heisman ceremony in New York, a makeover for his mother for the event and limousine transportation;
  • Weekly payments of at least $1,500 to the Bush family.

Documents and multiple sources also link Bush and his family to receiving benefits from New Era’s financial backers, including:

  • $623.63 for a hotel stay by Bush at the Venetian Resort & Casino in Las Vegas from March 11-13, 2005, charged to Michaels, according to a document signed by Bush.
  • $1,574.86 for a stay by Bush at the Manchester Hyatt in San Diego from March 4-6, 2005, paid for by Michaels, according to a hotel document, a hotel employee and a source.
  • Approximately $13,000 to Bush from New Era to purchase and modify a car, three sources said.
  • As reported by Yahoo! Sports in April, $54,000 in rent-free living for a year at Michaels’ $757,500 home in Spring Valley, Calif., according to Michaels and San Diego attorney Brian Watkins.
  • Also from previous Yahoo! reports, $28,000 from Michaels to help Bush’s family settle pre-existing debt, according to Michaels and Watkins.
  • Thousands of dollars in spending money to both Bush and his family from the prospective agents, according to multiple sources.

Just because Mark Sanchez allegedly assaulted a girl and the charges got dropped doesn’t prove anything…right?

Another satisfied customer sanch-sized!

Sanchez met the alleged victim the apartment complex after visiting an off-campus bar, the Daily News reported, citing unnamed witnesses. The witnesses said Sanchez appeared to be drunk, the newspaper reported.

Sanchez’s roommate, linebacker Brian Cushing, was detained but released, the newspaper reported.

Sanchez had been at a rape awareness workshop earlier Tuesday, the Daily News reported.

So it seems like the seminar really worked….

USC officials said they will temporarily suspend Sanchez while police conduct their investigation.

“The university takes charges of sexual assault seriously,” Michael Jackson, USC vice president of student affairs, said in a statement. “Depending on the facts as established by the LAPD, we will determine the appropriate action.”

USC coach Pete Carroll said he was aware of Sanchez’s arrest and that the Trojans football program would cooperate with police and “follow along with whatever action the university takes.”

Sanchez is listed on the Trojans’ depth chart as the backup to John David Booty, but was expected to battle for the starting job this fall. Booty practiced only once this spring before he injured his back and had to undergo surgery.

Dwayne Jerrett getting reduced housing was clearly a sense of the rules being a little too strenuous.

I can pay you back now bro! I got my own loot!

LOS ANGELES — The NCAA reinstated Dwayne Jarrett’s eligibility on Wednesday, so the USC All-American wide receiver will not miss any games for the Trojans.

Jarrett, a junior, was declared ineligible earlier this summer because he did not pay full rent on an off-campus apartment he had shared with teammate Matt Leinart. Leinart’s father paid the balance of the rent.

Leinart, the 2004 Heisman Trophy winner, completed his eligibility at the school last season and was taken 10th by the Arizona Cardinals in this year’s NFL draft.

The NCAA ruled that Jarrett must pay $5,352 to a charity of his choice for extra benefits that included discounted rent on the apartment.

“Mr. Jarrett made a mistake, and we believe that had he known he was required to pay his full share of the rent for the apartment, he would not have chosen to live there,” Jennifer Strawley, NCAA director of membership services and student-athlete reinstatement, said in a statement.

“Reinstatement is a delicate balance of addressing the benefit or competitive advantage gained with student-athlete well being. In this instance, requiring some level of repayment was a fair and reasonable outcome given the specific facts.”

Jarrett lived with Leinart for 13 months in an apartment that cost $3,866 a month. Jarrett paid $650 a month toward the rent and did not pay any utilities.

The NCAA is requiring him to give to charity the full value of his $960 monthly housing stipend, minus what he already paid in rent, plus half the cost of utilities for the time he lived in the apartment.

His total benefit while he lived in the apartment was calculated to be $18,001.

This is an aberration clearly.  This is just a strong of bad things that happened to good people.  I wish that they would quit picking on the downtrodden USC Trojans

Damn… dude did live hard though.

The cops were always on him and he was always involved in something that was getting him caught up, whether it was beating on his wife or his debt problems.

PROVO, Utah (AP) — Gary Coleman, the child star of the smash 1970s TV sitcom “Diff’rent Strokes” whose later career was marred by medical and legal problems, has died after suffering an intercranial hemorrhage. He was 42.

Utah Valley Regional Medical Center spokeswoman Janet Frank says life support was terminated and Coleman died at 12:05 p.m. MDT.

The full cast...

Coleman, with his sparkling eyes and perfect comic timing, became a star after “Diff’rent Strokes” debuted in 1978. He played the younger brother in a pair of African-American siblings adopted by a wealthy white man.

His popularity faded when the show ended after six seasons on NBC and two on ABC.

He suffered continuing ill health from the kidney disease that stunted his growth and had a host of legal problems in recent years.

This show killed me when I was a kid.  Where is Mr. Drummond when you need him now?  Well, with the exception of Todd Bridges, there is a reunion show in heaven right now.

This might be something to stab someone over...

Now, just about everyone has gotten into a disagreement with their parents or guardians.  It’s natural.  You want more freedom, they care about your safety and at times, those things come into conflict.  There has been many times when I have been faced with that conflict.  I just tried to de-escalate and plan for another time. Aaron Dean does not have the ability to control his urges.  I mean, I like cheeseburgers, but not enough to stab anyone over one.

Damn that must have been a good burger...

TOLEDO, OH (WTVG) — A Toledo teen is behind bars for allegedly stabbing his mother over a cheeseburger.

The altercation happened at 425 West Bancroft around 1 a.m. Friday morning.

Aaron Dean, 18, is accused of stabbing his mother over the burger.

Detectives say the teen’s mom came home with food for herself. Her son apparently got upset because she didn’t bring him a cheeseburger.

Police say he choked her, grabbed a butcher knife, and stabbed her in the right arm before running away.

We talked with Vergie Dean, Aaron’s mom, today. She told us she grabbed a cheeseburger from Rally’s and headed home.

She says her 6’3″ 300-pound son got upset because she didn’t bring one for him. “He was like ‘Where’s my food at?’ and I’m like ‘I’m not gonna give you anything’ so he smacked my sandwich and he pushed me or something and it escalated from there.”

Aaron allegedly grabbed and choked her. “He had me in the corner. I took a knife and I stabbed him in his finger. He ran in his room and grabbed a big ole butcher knife. He came back and was like ‘You cut me, you cut me.’ He was standing right there. He just took the knife and stuck it in my arm. ”

Detectives took the butcher knife as evidence.

They say Aaron Dean took off after the stabbing. He was arrested a block from his home, on Prescott Street.

His mother blames her son’s behavior on his mental illness. “He’s a paranoid schizophrenic and he ain’t been taking his medicine for one because he flips off. He be good sometime, then he get bad.”

Police charged the teen with felonious assault, false information, and drug abuse.

His mother says her son would rather buy drugs than food. “So to keep him from going in the streets to do the bad things, I give him money everyday.”

She says she doesn’t want him to stay in jail. “It’s not a good place for him there. He need to go to a mental hospital somewhere so he can get his head right because he might want to hurt somebody else on the street.”

Horse tied up, sexually assaulted in Felton

Posted: 05/19/2010 08:16:53 PM PDT

Updated: 05/20/2010 09:32:49 AM PDT
A Felton woman says her horse was sexually assaulted Monday evening in a pasture near Graham Hill and Mount Hermon roads, according to Santa Cruz County Animal Services.

The horse’s owner told Animal Services that she spotted a man on top of her horse. She said the man ran into the woods when he saw her coming, according to Lynn Miller, the agency’s interim manager.

“It’s very bizarre behavior and very alarming to have someone doing this and you wonder, where next and who next,” Miller said.

The California Penal Code outlines a specific, misdemeanor crime for sexually assaulting an animal, Miller said.

It is very rare that the agency gets reports of such crime, he said.

In Monday’s case, the horse’s owner said she could not initially find her horse when she went to the pasture and began calling out to her, Miller said.

The horse whinnied back and the woman followed the sound and then saw her in another area of the pasture, tied to a redwood tree, he said.

She saw the man pulling up his pants and yelled out and he took off into the woods.

It was near dusk and the woman did not get a clear look at him, he said, but reported he had a light-colored beard and was wearing tattered clothes and may have been homeless.

The horse was uninjured, Miller said.

She told the officer she had heard a similar incident happened to another horse in the area, but Miller said they had not received any other reports.

Normally, the Sheriff’s Office would field the call, but Animal Services took it because deputies were busy and the perpetrator was gone, Miller said.

Animal Services encouraged the woman to file a report with the Sheriff’s Office, he said.

The Sheriff’s Office has not gotten a report of the incident, and deputies are unaware of any similar recent cases, Sgt. Dan Campos said.

Can you get me a sandwich?

In 2003, according to Sentinel archives, a Shetland pony named Rose was taken from Coast Road Stables north of Santa Cruz and reportedly sexually assaulted. A jogger in that case had reported seeing a man sleeping beside a horse in the bushes along Shaffer Road on the morning before the pony wandered back, uninjured. The hair on the tails of several horses there had been cut as well, deputies reported at the time.

Even Horses have sex in cars...Must have been a great leg shaking finish!

Some ideas should never see the light of day.  Full Body scanners are one of them.  Remember this SNL skit on Bad Idea Jeans? (R.I.P. Phil Hartmann)

Vodpod videos no longer available.

For privacy concerns, the full body scanner is the Bad Idea jeans of 2010.  I was talking to my father about traveling and we both came to the conclusion that my children will never know the amount of freedom that we had pre-9/11.  I can remember making a flight when I was living in St. Paul leaving my house 40 minutes before the flight was scheduled to take off.  I made the flight easily and had time to ponder a snack before getting on the plane.  Those days of ease and freedom are clearly over and we have the terrorists to thank.  Our way of life has been irreparably changed.

Now, with the scanners, TSA agent Rolando Negrin finally had enough.

Airport security guard attacks colleague over ‘manhood’ jokes after walking through hi-tech body scanner

By Mail Foreign Service
Last updated at 3:18 PM on 7th May 2010

Rolando NegrinBreaking point: Rolando Negrin is accused of assaulting a colleague after enduring relentless jokes about how his manhood looked an an X-ray scanner

An airport security guard allegedly battered a colleague who ridiculed him about the size of his manhood after he walked through a hi-tech body scanner.

Miami-Dade Police say Rolando Negrin snapped because he ‘couldn’t take the jokes anymore’.

During a training session at Miami International Airport, Negrin’s co-workers had noticed his private parts as he walked through a new ‘whole body image’ machine.

The technology – designed to boost security at airports – shows extremely revealing images.

Over the next few days, 44-year-old Negrin was relentlessly ridiculed and lost his temper on May 4, it is claimed.

Maybe it was shrinkage, because he had been in the pool

but, you should never feel the need to fight over that, but the proof was in the pudding.  Most people will never know, but with these scanners, you can’t hide anymore.  Plus, what was the supervisor looking at?  I will let Riley Freeman give my response to that.

Police said Negrin confronted fellow screener Hugo Osorno in an airport car park and repeatedly beat him with a police baton while demanding an apology.

That is gansta.  That is some scarface type of street justice that was doled out on Hugo.  I guarantee that he will act right from now on.

The Miami incident echoes that of a similar case at Heathrow in March, where an airport worker was disciplined after ‘ogling’ a female colleague who had walked through one of the controversial scanners.

John Laker, 25, was given an official warning over sexual harassment by Heathrow operator BAA.

A police arrest report into the Miami incident said: ‘The X-ray revealed [Negrin’s genitals] and co-workers made fun of him on a daily basis.

‘They say that Negrin confronted Osorno in an airport parking lot after their shift.

Negrin wanted to ‘resolve a problem’, and get Osorno, 34, to ‘finally respect him’, said the report.

He allegedly pulled out a police baton and repeatedly struck Osorno while demanding an apology.

Witnesses told police that Negrin yelled, in Spanish: ‘Get on your knees or I will kill you and you better apologise.’

He was arrested and charged with aggravated battery when he turned up for work the following day.

Negrin has been released on $7,500 bail.

I am sure that it was worth it.  If I would a judge, I would have leniency on Negrin.  All it takes is one dude to start running his mouth and others think that this type of thing is okay.  Keeping with the theme of stun guns, had he had one and shocked him, I would have laughed at Hugo getting a taste of the taser.

Body scan

Exposed: The revealing full body scans alarm privacy campaigners

Passengers are likely to feel increasingly exposed as more stories emerge of airport staff around the world ‘mocking’ X-ray scanner nudity.

The human X-ray machines produce ‘naked’ images of passengers, enabling security staff to instantly spot any hidden weapons or explosives.

The full body scanners also show up any breast enlargements, false limbs, piercings, and a clear outline of passengers’ private parts.

However fears have been raised that they may not be safe for women in the early stages of pregnancy or children.

What happened to Rolando, will happen to others.  The tech has clear advantages, but in the hands of some of the stiffs that they have put in charge is dangerous.  They say that they will be well trained, but the training can’t solve for stupidity or perverts.

Privacy campaigners, meanwhile, have warned that other travellers might not want to be scanned because of the graphic nature of the images.

In March two Muslim women have become the first passengers in the UK to refuse to subject themselves to controversial ‘naked’ full body airport scans.

The pair – who security officials insist were selected at random – opted to miss their flight to Pakistan and forfeit tickets worth £400 each rather than be screened.

One of the women refused to go through the full-body scanner at Manchester Airport on religious grounds while her companion also declined for ‘medical reasons’.

The women were travelling together to Islamabad when they were selected to pass through the controversial security screen after checking-in at Terminal Two at the airport.

An estimated 15,000 people have already passed through the scanners in the UK, with the pair the first passengers to refuse a scan.

I am not trying to hide anything on my person when I am going through security.  I still think that the privacy concerns are real.  I would go through the scanner to avoid missing my flight, but the rights you use to have are now a part of lore of yesteryear.

Say it aint so!

Nothing to smile about with this charge....

But it probably is.  Everyone deserves a fair trial, but damn L.T.  You should have enough money to stay out of trouble, unless you are not right in the head.

The USA Today details the charge.

NFL Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor has been arrested for rape in New York, according to a report from WCBS-TV in New York City.The former New York Giants linebacker was taken into custody early this morning by the Town of Ramapo police after being accused of raping someone in the Holidome Hotel in Montebello, north of New York City, WCBS said.

Ramapo Detective Lt. Brad Weidel told the AP that Taylor, 51, hadn’t been formally charged. He said charges will be filed when the police investigation is completed.

The Journal Newssays the alleged victim is a 15-year-old girl who was beaten. The Journal News also says it has learned Taylor will be charged with third-degree rape, which involves intercourse with a minor.

The station said a new conference is expected later today, where police will give more details.

Taylor’s troubled past includes repeated drug problems. He tested positive for cocaine in 1987 and in 1988 was suspended by the NFL for 30 days when he failed another test.

In an autobiography, Taylor admitted resuming heavy cocaine usage when he retired. He entered drug rehab twice in 1995, but later was arrested two times in three years for allegedly attempting to buy cocaine from undercover officers

In a November 2003 interview with 60 Minutes, Taylor said he spent thousands of dollars a day on narcotics at the peak of his drug abuse.

A 10-time Pro Bowler, Taylor was the NFL’s MVP in 1986 and the league’s Defensive Player of the Year in 1981, 1982 and 1986.
