Stop & Frisk Gone Wrong: Idiot Cops Frisk Their Own Cheif & Don’t Even Know It?!

Talk about racial profiling gone wrong. Maybe now Commissioner Raymond Kelly & Mayor Bloomberg can explain how effective Stop & Frisk profiling is after the highest-ranking uniformed black officer in NYC was stopped & frisked for no legitimate reason. Even after making their mistake, the idiot cops who stopped him were still unrepentant! Thank God the Chief wasn’t wearing a hoodie and holding a bag of skittles with some iced tea.

Via DailyNews:

At least one cop has been disciplined for ordering the NYPD‘s highest-ranking uniformed black officer out of his auto while the three-star chief was off-duty and parked in Queens, the Daily News has learned.

“How you can not know or recognize a chief in a department SUV with ID around his neck, I don’t know,” a police source said.

Chief Douglas Zeigler, 60, head of the Community Affairs Bureau, was in his NYPD-issued vehicle near a fire hydrant when two plainclothes cops approached on May 2, sources said.

One officer walked up on each side of the SUV at 57th Ave. and Xenia St. in Corona about 7 p.m. and told the driver to roll down the heavily tinted windows, sources said.

What happened next is in dispute.

In his briefing to Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly, Zeigler said the two cops, who are white, had no legitimate reason to approach his SUV, ranking sources said.

After they ordered him to get out, one officer did not believe the NYPD identification Zeigler gave him.

 The cops gave a different account:

When one officer spotted Zeigler’s service weapon through the rolled-down window, he yelled “Gun!” according to sources who have spoken with the officers.

Both cops raised their weapons and ordered the driver out of the car, sources said.

Instead of saying he was an armed member of the NYPD, Zeigler shouted, “Don’t you know who I am?” the sources said.

When one cop reached over to check the identification badge around Zeigler’s neck, the chief pushed him away, sources said.

Only then did Zeigler tell the two officers his name and rank, those sources said.

Zeigler, in his discussions with Kelly, said the officers never yelled “Gun!” sources said.

One cop got into a heated argument with the chief even after seeing the ID, sources said.

That cop was stripped of his gun and badge and placed on modified duty last night, sources said. The status of the second officer was unclear.

The incident occurred as the NYPD is under fire for record numbers of pedestrians being stopped and frisked, the majority of them black or Hispanic. Some 145,098 people were stopped by the NYPD in the first quarter of this year.

Zeigler has headed the Community Affairs Bureau since January 2006. His wife, Neldra Zeigler, is NYPD deputy commissioner for equal employment opportunity.

Queens Couple Commit Train Suicide Together After Facing Pressure To Break Up

This a sad story of a young couple who thought that suicide would be the only way they could be together. No matter what the situation, suicide is never the answer people!

Via DailyMail:

A young couple who threw themselves to their deaths in front of a train had been under pressure to end their relationship, it emerged today.

Davon Smallwood, 25, and Ariana O’Neal, 21, wrote a suicide note saying ‘two great people are going to paradise… everything will be good’ before jumping from a New York platform on Monday.

Police sources said O’Neal, who has a two-year-old daughter with Smallwood, recently ran away after her mother demanded her boyfriend stay away from the house.

Her landlord Kinsley Senior said Smallwood’s recent brushes with the law had become an issue for her mother.She told the New York Post: ‘Her mom didn’t want the boyfriend living with all of them. She didn’t like him.The pair, who lived in Queens Village, were arrested earlier this month for allegedly stealing jewellery from a store in Queens, and both had recently dyed their hair red.
A resident who lives near the station said she often saw O’Neal loitering around the area and sitting for hours in a urine-soaked stairway by the platform.

Terri Simmons said she tried to ask if she was alright on several occasions, but O’Neal never acknowledged her.

 The pair were struck by an 80mph train at the Hollis station at 193rd Street and 99th Avenue on Monday. The engineer had seen them but was unable to stop in time, the Post reported.

A witness told how she heard a ‘boom’ as the bodies hit the train.

The suicide note, much of which was illegible, was found on the platform along with a black garbage bag containing clothes, vodka and a can of Coca-Cola, according to police sources.

An MTA cop who went to the scene read the first page of the notebook and said: ‘Oh, my God, it’s a suicide note!’, witnesses said.

The couple had no IDs, so police had to run fingerprints to establish their names.

Stickup Crew Caught Robbing $250K from Queens Business Using Ideas from Ben Affleck Movie ‘TheTown’

These three geniuses were inspired by the movie “The Town”  to commit a robbery complete with masks and bleach to pour over the crime scene to get rid of their DNA…but they probably should’ve just stayed at home and watched “Dumb and Dumber”

Via DailyNews:

Prosecutors will screen for the jury four clips from the 2010 crime drama directed by Ben Affleck in the trial of accused bandits Edward Byam, Derrick Dunkley and Akeem Monsalvatge in Brooklyn Federal Court.

“The check cashing robbery used techniques stolen straight out of Hollywood,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Maria Cruz Melendez said Tuesday in an opening statement.

Jurors also got a dose of reality TV, watching surveillance video of the Valentine’s Day 2012 heist of a Pay-O-Matic in Rosedale, Queens,

Just like in the film, the perps wore police-style uniforms. Byam paid $2,000 for three Caucasian masks from Louisiana-based Composite Effects, whose credits include “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.” The trio is black.

Pay-O-Matic teller Liloutie Ramadan was confronted with a photo of her residence, indicating they knew where she lived — also ripped straight from the film, when the robbers’ warn victims that accomplices are outside their homes.

Two of the three alleged perps without their latex masks, but notably one is wearing a T-shirt  featuring a character from the film "The Town."

Before leaving, the trio poured bleach inside the check cashing store to destroy DNA evidence, same as in the movie.

The victims told police the bandits were white men, but NYPD detectives weren’t fooled when they reviewed the video and immediately suspected they were wearing pullover masks.

“The hats didn’t fit properly and the ear hole didn’t look normal,” Det. Michael Visconti testified.

When the bald-headed bandit’s head turned, the skin on his neck didn’t wrinkle either, Visconti added.

There were other whopper clues, the prosecutor noted.

The photo of Ramadan’s house was accidentally dropped on the floor and left behind. Investigators traced identifying information on the photo to a Walgreen’s receipt in Byam’s name.

Flush with nearly $250,000 in loot, Byam went off the deep end, emailing thanks and praise to the mask company.

He also purchased a $12,000 diamond-encrusted Rolex watch, which agents seized from his home along with Gucci merchandise and a job application he had filled out for Pay-O-Matic.

And during a previous Pay-O-Matic robbery on Rockaway Blvd, investigators retrieved Monsalvatge’s DNA from handcuffs at the scene.

Federal agents also recovered a photo of Montsalvatge wearing a T-shirt with a character from “The Town” on the front.

Defense lawyers cautioned the jurors to pay careful attention to the victims’ descriptions of the robbers — because they obviously don’t match the three defendants sitting in the courtroom.

Rapper’s Bragging Lyrics Lead to His Own Arrest in Unsolved Double Homicide Case

In today’s edition of “When Keeping it Real Goes Wrong”:

Via AllHipHop:

Local Virginia rapper Antwain “Twain Gotti” Steward faces murder, malicious wounding, and firearms charges in Newport News after the 22-year-old allegedly rapped about the crime in one of his songs. According to a report by the Daily Press, Steward is accused of fatally shooting Brian Dean, 20, and Christopher Horton, 16, on May 10, 2007. Steward was 16 at the time.

The case went cold for years, but police charged Steward with the two murder counts on July 9 citing his lyrics featured in a 2011 YouTube video as evidence of his guilt. The video has since been taken down from the site.

An affidavit for a Newport News Circuit Court issued search warrant provided the lines from the song:

“Everybody saw when I [expletive] choked him. But nobody saw when I [expletive] smoked him, roped him, sharpened up the shank then I poked him…had me crackin up so I joked him, it is betweezy six feet ova, told ya [expletive] with my money I’ll roast ya”

Witnesses at the time said that Horton and Steward had gotten into a fight before the shooting took place. Authorities allege that Horton and his visiting friend Dean were gunned down on the front porch of Horton’s house as a result of gang retaliation.

Steward is now being held without bond. He has a preliminary hearing scheduled for October 2.

“Conservative Black Chick”: Trayvon’s Mom is Starting Race War & Profiting from Her Son’s Name

Boy, I tell ya’..this Trayvon case has brought out the worst of the worst! Self-proclaimed “Conservative Black Chick” Crystal Wright went on national T.V. to accuse Trayvon’s mother of instigating a race war while at the same time profiting off of the murder of her dead son. Watching Crystal Wright speak, the only thing that comes to mind is Samuel L. Jackson’s character in Django…

Via NewsOne:

Following Sybrina Fulton‘s powerful and emotional plea Friday to the National Urban League, conservative Black token du jour, Crystal Wright, who has coined the moniker, Conservative Black Chick, took to Twitter and attacked the grieving mother as being opportunistic and dishonest.

Wright cruelly accused Fulton of “manufacturing a race war” and suggests that she “move on” or “get on with writing her book.”

tweet

gop2

Move on from her murdered child?

Mimicking the crass, troll tactics of some of her GOP brethren, Wright agreed — and retweeted — followers who claimed that Sybrina Fulton “didn’t care about Trayvon till she copyrighted his name and made trash cans of money.”

Wright, who takes pride in being a “triple minority,” — Black, female and Republican — was a regular commentator on HLN during the George Zimmerman trial, obviously selected to be the lone Black voice who would support the former neighborhood watch captain’s version of events — re: lies — and place 17-year-old Trayvon Martin on trial from the grave.

Crystal Wright is smart enough to realize that the reason Sybrina Fulton had to copywright her son’s name was to protect Trayvon’s name from opportunists looking to financially exploit her son’s death for their own benefit. That kind of logic isn’t found on Fox News unfortunately and pundits like Wright are all too comfortable making outrageous, disrespectful statements on a regular basis. Unfortunately, many of Fox’s faithful viewers end up in juries like those in the Trayvon Martin case.

4 yr. old Genius Invited to Join International Organization for the “Super Smart”

Congratulations to 4 yr. old Anala Beevers. We look forward to seeing what career path this smart little girl chooses and wish her the best of luck!

Via AOL:

Anala Beevers is just four years old, but she already knows the location and capital of every US state. She learned the alphabet at four months of age, then at eighteen months learned numbers in Spanish. The precociously intelligent youngster claims she’s smarter than her parents, and both mom and dad agree.

Her genius has not gone unnoticed, and has led to an invitation to join MENSA, an international organization for the ‘super-smart.’ MENSA, which is mostly populated by adults, usually claims members with intelligence in the top 2% of the populace. Anala, who can also identify planets and dinosaurs, is in the top 1%.

“She keeps us on our toes,” says her father Landon, who would like to see her get her own reality TV show. When asked what she wants to do when she grows up, Anala says she’d like to be a nurse.

A reality show though Dad Smh Sounds like Anala might be right about being smarter than her parents.

Stevie J. Confirms That He & Joseline are Officially Married?

Stevie J is one funny dude. Only Stevie a.k.a. Steebie a.k.a. Sleaze would think that there was nothing wrong with giving two women “life partner” rings! Steebie took to Twitter to answer the question everyone wants to know: Did him and Joseline ever end up getting married?

Well, it looks like the king and queen of Love & Hip Hop ATL foolery are now officially Mr. & Mrs.

Despite both of them running around flaunting very visible ring-finger bling over the last month or so, neither Stevie J nor his wild child chica Joseline had actually confirmed that they were indeed married and the season finale episode left things up in the air.

But after almost getting two-pieced for his pimpager shennanigans that saw Mimi, Joseline and Stevie all in one room as he gave both of them “life partner”rings that Mimi ultimately rejected, Stevie took to his Twitter to let the world know the deal:

Screen-shot-2013-07-30-at-6.55.06-PM

And there you have it….or do you?

Between this shady confirmation and Stevie admitting that the twosome is in talks to do a spinoff show, it sounds like this is one train wreck that’s not running off the track any time soon.

DMX Files for Bankrupcty, Owes 1.2 Million in Child Support, Net Worth Below $50,000

DMX is definitely having a rough week. A couple days after his recent arrest, X is now forced to file for bankruptcy due to poor financial management:

Via EpochTimes:

DMX filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, according to court records. The rapper only has a net worth of less than $50,000 in assets, reported the Wall Street Journal.

Born Earl Simmons, DMX filed for a Chapter 11 protection, which says he is between $1 million and $10 million in debt.

DMX, who lives in Yonkers, New York, owes more than $1.24 million in child support and more than $21,000 on an auto lease.

“DMX’s financial strains have been inhibiting his career for several years. Poor financial management by prior representation have caused him to be ineligible to retain a passport. The purpose of this bankruptcy filing is for reorganization so he can perform for his fans oversees [sic]. We are currently planning a tour in Europe and Africa for the fall of 2013,” Domenick Nati,a representative for DMX, told the Journal.

The filing comes just a few days after he was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated and not having a license, according to reports.

DMX was arrested on Friday morning in South Carolina, TMZ reported.

“He was arrested early this morning but quickly released,” Nati told CNN last week. “X was given a breathalyzer test and easily passed it. He is back at his home in South Carolina and we are continuing our focus on his upcoming album and acting roles.”

This is sad to see knowing all the talent this guy has. For his sake we hope he’ll be able to surprise everyone one day and finally get it together.

Remember the Mother Who Blamed 2 Black Teens for Shooting Infant Son? Turns Out She May Have Killed Son Herself

You have to be one evil person to not only kill your own infant child but also blame two innocent teens and demand they be killed too. New evidence is starting to suggest that is exactly what Sherry West may have done.  Sherry’s original story that two black teens shot her baby in the face, shot her in the leg and then ran already seemed fishy . Why shoot a baby and leave an adult witness that would be able to identify them? Now things are starting to make sense…smh…

Via RollingOut:

Brunswick, Ga. resident Sherry West, 42, mother of baby Antonio Santiago slain on March 14, 2013, told CNN’s Piers Morgan she wants the alleged teen killers to die during an on-camera interview. “A life for a life,” she said.

De’Marquis Elkins, 17, and Dominique Lang, 15, were arrested and charged with murdering the 13-month-old. Their trial was set for this August but their public defender, Jonathan Lockwood, uncovered some shocking evidence.

sherry-west-lied

She lied! The gunshot residue was found on both West and baby Antonio’s father, Louis, who was initially reported no where near the crime scene.

Back in March, West told police that while on her way home from the post office two black boys attempted to rob her. When she told them that she didn’t have any money, they shot baby Antonio in the face, then shot her in the leg before running away.

The state forensic report says, “This supports the possibility that [Louis Santiago] discharged a firearm, was in close proximity to a firearm upon discharge, or came into contact with an item whose surface bears GSR [gunshot residue].”

sherry-west

Remember, accused Elkins’ mother Karimah Aisha Elkins, 36, and aunt Katrina Latrelle Elkins, 33, were arrested and charged with making false statements. A gun was found but authorities never indicated it was a murder weapon.

Also, West’s daughter Ashley Glassey, 21, said she didn’t want to wrongly accuse her mother but had her doubts because her stories were conflicting and she may have committed the murder for insurance money.

Police have not named Sherry West or Louis Santiago suspects in their son’s murder; however, Santiago is in jail for aggravated stalking of West.

“He went nuts … he was throwing things through the window and terrorizing me, saying that I killed my baby and it should have been me,” West tells CBS.

Twitter Clowns Ciara for Her Struggling Album Sales

Poor Ciara just can’t catch a break. A blossoming relationship with hit-producer Future doesn’t seem to be helping Ciara’s struggling career and her new attempt at boosting her sales just got her Twitter-roasted:

Via Singersroom:

Ciara is looking to drive sales around her recently released fifth studio album, Ciara. The set debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 albums chart moving a total of 59,000 copies within its first week of release. The sales figures is a huge improvement over her 2010 opus, Basic Instinct, which debuted and peaked at No.44. with 37,000 in sales. Unfortunately, Ciara has since slipped on the charts after not being able to maintain record sales.

In an effort to boost sales, the Grammy winner has teamed with discount outlet Groupon to offer a 2-CD bundle package, which includes the ‘Ciara’ album and ‘The Very Best of Ciara’ playlist. ‘Ciara’ features collaborations with Nicki Minaj and Future and is lead by the singles “Body Party” and “I’m Out” while ‘The Very Best of Ciara’ includes 14 of Ciara’s hits (“Goodies,” “Promise,” “Like a Boy,” and more).

Sharon Osbourne Says Justin Bieber’s Biggest Problem Is That He Thinks He’s Black

Sharon Osbourne stirred up some controversy with a statement she made giving her take on all the trouble Justin Bieber has been getting himself into lately. Sharon ruffled a few feathers by suggesting that Justin’s biggest problem right now is that he has forgotten that he’s white and not black:
“I feel really bad for him,” Osbourne said of the teen pop sensation. “There’s this little kid with a huge dream, he’s cute, girls love him, and he wants to be a mean boy, and he’s about as mean as a (expletive) kitten, and he’s trying to act out.”
Osbourne referred to Bieber infamously urinating in a mop bucket in a nightclub kitchen earlier this year while his friends laughed and filmed the event.
“It’s like, ‘Oh, we’re the bad boys!’ she said. “(Expletive) off! You don’t know what bad is. And I think that he’s lost, I really do. I think he doesn’t realize he’s white and not black, that’s a huge problem. And, at the point he’s at in his career, it’s so dangerous because we’ve seen it all before a million times. Where do you go when you’re a child entertainer and then you want to transition to be a man? Very few make it.”

She also gave her  take on Kanye West:

“I have no time for (Kanye West),” she said of the musician and Kim Kardashian baby daddy. “He bores me.” But she had only praise for singers Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake.

Funny..we didn’t reallize Justin Bieber’s behavior was exclusive to black people. Seems pretty hypocritical considering Sharon’s own children were notorious drug and alcohol abusers as well as many other young, white celebs who were never influenced by black people. We think Sharon needs to consider her words more carefully next time, to say the least!

Michael Eric Dyson Responds To Bill O’Reilly: O’Reilly ‘Surprised That Black People Don’t Throw Bananas’ ‘Or Swing From Trees’

Outspoken academic, author and radio host Michael Eric Dyson has issued a challenge to Bill O’Reilly following Bill’s rant the other day on the reasons why the African-American community is failing in society:

Via Mediaite:

Georgetown University Professor Michael Eric Dyson issued a challenge to Fox News Channel host Bill O’Reilly during a Sunday morning appearance with MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry. He said that O’Reilly’s talk about the problems facing the black community lacks a base of empirical knowledge, and he would like to have a real “conversation” about race with the Fox host. Dyson said that O’Reilly was recently “surprised that black people don’t throw bananas at each other or swing from trees” in Harlem, and is not well-positioned to frankly discuss racial issues.

“There is one high-profile white man who is willing to talk about race,” Harris-Perry opened a segment on race relations. She played a clip of O’Reilly talking about what he thought were the problems facing the black community, including the breakdown of the African-American nuclear family.

“Why is it that when we say we want to have a conversation on race, you want to have a conversation on blackness?” Dyson said in reaction to the clip. “You don’t want to have a conversation on white privilege, on conscious bias. You don’t want to talk about the collective world we’ve made black, brown, red, yellow, and white people. You want to lecture black people.”

Dyson added that even President Barack Obama has said, as exemplified by a recent speech to students at the predominantly black Morehouse College, “no excuse-making.” Turning to the issue of inner-city crime, Dyson said that the media’s lack of focus on crime ridden neighborhoods is a contributing factor to that epidemic of violence.

“But this is what we know: White on white crime is a devastation in America like so-called black on black crime. It’s not black or white on white crime. It’s proximity murder,” Dyson said. “The cameras don’t show up in Chicago like they show up in Newtown and Aurora. All we’re asking for is equal attention paid to crises at a time of enormous distress for our vulnerable children to be assisted.”

Dyson said that O’Reilly could not understand the issues facing black people because he is too far removed from the community. He cited O’Reilly’s visit to Sylvia’s Harlem Restaurant in 2007, when he said he was so similar to other Manhattan restaurants, as an example.

“So, Mr. O’Reilly, I’d love to have that conversation about protecting yourself behind white picket fences and Fox News and having digital courage,” Dyson said issuing a challenge. “Come in the streets where you went to Sylvia’s and you were surprised that black people don’t throw bananas at each other or swing from trees.”

Store Owner Catches Foxy Brown Stealing $900 Worth of Hair Weave? [VIDEO]

These phones with videos cameras are making life hard for celebrities who are used to stealing their weaves in private. In this clip, Foxy and her hairstylist G-Star are in a heated dispute over $900 worth of hair weave and her hair stylist made sure to put her on full blast. $900 though?! That’s some expensive weave. Foxy, Foxy, Foxy smh…

Here is the story direct from G-Star as told to BOSSIP:

SHE LOVED HER HAIR. She danced in the mirror and twirled around in circles like a child. She kept giving me hugs and telling me she would be taking me on tour when she drops her album. She told me this was the best weave she ever had and couldn’t believe how flat the braids were. She said I was an Angel with an amazing gift and that I had a wonderful spirit. She loved the fact that I was an out lesbian and said I will always stand out because of how open I am.

So after 30 minutes of the nonsense and twirling she went to the bathroom. I sent a text because to her she took her hearing aid out. I asked her how did she want to settle her bill.

She came out the bath room and started acting all erratic. And said that she couldn’t pay right there on the spot because she had to meet Jay Z at the Barclays Center. (I told her) “Every one told me you weren’t going to pay me”. She said “No I’m not doing anything. Just send the invoice to my management”. I said to her who is your management? -Why didn’t your management make your appointment then? You walked in the salon like regular customer. She said just Google the info for them and send the invoice. I said no. YOU need to pay me. She said gstar you’re a nice girl and I don’t want to embarrass us. Just send an invoice. I said no I want my money now Foxy. She grabbed her friend and started walking out the store. I followed her. I kept saying PAY me for my services.

I let her go because I didn’t want to cause a scene on the street.

I further contacted her to get payment as you can see from the photos I kept getting the run around.

This past Thursday I went to the corner store by the salon and saw her in there (St. Marks and Flatbush in Brooklyn, NY) I confronted her. And then I recorded the confrontation.

I then went back to the salon and finally filed a police report with the 78th pct. The report is for theft of services.

Fugees “Killing Me Softly” Director Jailed for Fathering Six Children from His Own Daughters?

This is just disgusting. How a mother could allow this to be done to her children without doing everything in her power to stop this is beyond me. This guy needs to be tortured in the same way he tortured his poor children:

Via DailyMail:

An award-winning music director found guilty of fathering children with his daughters will spend the rest of his life in jail.

Aswad Ayinde, 55, of Paterson, NJ, was sentenced to 50 years in prison Friday after being found guilty in the second of five expected trials in which he is accused of repeatedly forcing sex with his six daughters, resulting in six children being fathered. Mr. Ayinde was found guilty in his latest trial of having intercourse with a daughters when she was as young as eight-years-old. The second sentence adds to the 40 year sentence Mr Ayinde received in a 2011 trial for sexually assaulting a separate daughter.

Mr. Ayinde is known for directing the music video for the Fugees 1996 smash hit ‘Killing Me Softly.’

In a disturbing disclosure during his first trial, Mr. Ayinde’s former wife said he was trying to create a ‘pure family bloodline’ by impregnating his daughters. He even claimed during a pre-trial hearing before the first trial that ‘the world was going to end, and it was just going to be him and his offspring and that he was chosen.’

In this latest trial, it was revealed that Mr. Ayinde began having intercourse with his second daughter from the time she eight-years-old, impregnating her four times.

The sexual assaults happened for almost 30 years until Mr. Ayinde and his wife separated, officials said. They occurred in numerous homes across northern New Jersey, even while the family was under watch of state child welfare officials, according to NBC New York. Some of the attacks even took place in an abandoned funeral home.

The family moving as far away as Florida to avoid investigation after case workers removed multiple children from the Ayinde household in 2000, resulting in Mr. Ayinde being arrested for kidnapping for trying to take them from state custody in a medical center, NBC New York reported.

He pleaded guilty to lesser charges and received a year’s probation – as he continued assaulting one daughter for at least another two years, according to officials.

The depraved father also beat and starved the girls using wooden boards and steel-toed boots for even ‘minor transgressions,’ Ayinde’s wife testified at the first trial.

Some of the children Ayinde fathered with his daughters were born in the home, with at least two babies who died in the home having been buried without notifying authorities or obtaining birth certificates, NBC New York reported.

Mr. Ayinde also fathered 12 additional children with an additional three women, according to court records
Ayinde’s tortured daughters were home schooled and isolated from other children, so as to keep the family secrets hidden, the station added.

With his wife too afraid to confront him, Mr. Ayinde carried out his evil plan without hindrance even while directing the music video for the Fugees 1996 breakout hit ‘Killing Me Softly, for which he won ‘Best R&B Video’ at the 1996 MTV Music Video Awards. The Fugees are also originally from Northern New Jersey.
Mr. Ayinde faces three more trials over the alleged assaults.

10-Year Old Girl Catches Baby Thrown from Burning Building

In today’s edition of much needed good news, a 10-year girl is being hailed as a hero after catching a baby dropped from a burning building. Zna Gresham is proof that heroes come in all ages:

Via HuffPost:

Zna Gresham may not think of herself as a hero, but she is certainly being hailed as one.

In a lifesaving catch, the 10-year-old girl caught a baby that was dropped from a second-floor apartment in Decatur, Ga., after the building caught fire, the Associated Press reports.

The family living in the apartment was trapped by the fire, which reportedly started on the ground floor. DeKalb County Fire Battalion Chief Christopher Morrison said the mother had no choice but to drop her three children out the window.

“The smoke was rising so quickly to the upper floors, they couldn’t make their way outside their upper apartment into the hallway because of the smoke. They just went to a window and they threw the child outside to the people, to the neighbors, down on the ground,” Morrison explained to WSB Radio.

Gresham and her sister were standing below, and the 10-year-old managed to catch the 1-month-old before the baby hit the ground. The 2- and 3-year-old children did not fare as well and sustained minor injuries in the fall. All three were transported to a local hospital for treatment, along with two adults who were also hurt in the blaze.

While Gresham made the daring catch, she credited her entire household for helping to save the family trapped in the burning apartment.

“It took all of my family to help get the babies out and help save a family,” Gresham told WSB-TV. “In our family, we take care of our neighbors, no matter what.”

Italy’s First Black Minister Has Bananas Thrown At Her & Endures Threats of Rape

cecile-kyenge

To those who forget that racism is not just an American problem, disgruntled Italians are here to remind the world that it is a world-wide issue. We have to give Italy’s first black minister, Cecile Kyenge, the utmost respect for her courage and bravery in the face of the rampant bigotry and ignorance that she has had to endure:

The racist abuse and taunts endured by Italy’s first black minister, Cecile Kyenge, further escalated on Friday after a banana was hurled at her during a rally, sparking outrage across the political spectrum.

Kyenge, who is the minister for Integration, and is originally from the Democratic Republic of Congo, was speaking at a political rally Cervia in central Italy, when someone in the audience threw bananas towards the stage, narrowly missing it.

It is the latest incident in a series of abusive comments, death threats and insults. Earlier this month a senior parliamentarian in the anti-immigration Northern League party likened her to an orangutan and only apologised after a storm of criticism.

Another Northern League party member said on Facebook last month that Kyenge should be raped so she understands how victims of crimes committed by immigrants feel.

Kyenge responded to yesterday’s incident on her Twitter account writing that the attack was “sad” and a “waste of food”, considering the economic crisis.

“The courage and optimism to change things has to come above all from the bottom up to reach the institutions,” she added.

Shortly before Friday’s incident, members of the far-right Forza Nuova group left mannequins covered in fake blood near the site of the Democratic Party rally in protest against Kyenge’s proposal to make anyone born on Italian soil a citizen.

“Immigration kills,” was written on leaflets accompanying the dummies – a slogan Forza Nuova has previously used when referring to murders committed by immigrants in Italy.

However, on Saturday the group denied that one of its members had thrown the bananas. Italian police are trying to identify the culprit.

Several politicians, including her peers in Prime Minister Enrico Letta’s government, responded with messages of support and condemnation on Saturday.

Environment Minister Andrea Orlando said on Twitter he felt “utmost indignation for this lowly act”, while Education Minister Maria Chiara Carrozza praised Kyenge for her courage and determination in such a hostile climate.

Veneto region governor Luca Zaia from the Northern League, who is due to participate in an immigration debate with Kyenge in August, also spoke out against the incident on Saturday.

“Throwing bananas, personal insults … acts like these play no part in the civilised and democratic discussion needed between the minister and those who don’t share her opinion,” the ANSA news agency quoted him as saying.

Dwayne Wade Uses Ex-Wife’s “I’m Homeless” Protests To Prove She’s Crazy & Terminate Visits with Kids

Just when we thought the Dwayne Wade divorce drama was finally coming to an end, we find out it isn’t.  Dwayne Wade is now using his ex-wife’s public street protest in which she accused Dwayne of leaving her homeless to prove to the courts that she is not mentally stable enough to care for her kids. It looks like Dwayne Wade has been playing chess while his ex-wife has been playing checkers:

It’s another Gossip Extra exclusive: As Wade’s lawyers in his native Chicago claimed the ballplayer and his ex-wife reached a financial agreement Monday, his attorneys in Miami were quietly filing an emergency motion to prevent the ex from seeing the children.

Wade’s request to suspend the exes’ time-sharing agreement is scheduled to be heard at the main courthouse Tuesday downtown Miami.

Why the sudden change?

Wade claims ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches is not in the right state of mind to care for the kids!

The filing cites Funches’ strange sit-in protest in front of the Chicago courthouse last week, in which she held a sign accusing the three-time world champ of throwing her to the streets.

(Word is the children became distraught when they saw the incident on YouTube, which alerted Wade.)

The motion also mentions Funches’ breathing difficulties, which caused a recess during a court hearing in Chicago last week.

While Wade gained full custody last year, Funches sees the kids according to a visitation schedule. During the summer vacation, she gets them for two weeks a month, according to records.

Thing is: Wade refused to surrender the boys, Zion, 9, and Zaire, 4, to Funches as planned!

As far as Funches’ attorneys are concerned, the Heat’s guard is keeping them from her illegally.Last year, Funches was arrested in Chicago when she showed up with the kids four hours late.

D Wade, says Brian Hurst, Funches’ Windy City attorney, is four days late.

“The entire way Mr. Wade and his team are handling the issues with the children is disturbing to me,” Hurst tells Gossip Extra.

Funches’ camp is filing a response to Wade’s motion to suspend time-sharing, saying there’s no legal basis for the request and arguing that Funches is no threat to the boys.

As for the financial agreement that was to pay Funches $5 million-plus to go away announced with great fanfare Monday? It has yet to be signed!

Kelly Rowland Dating Pusha T?: “I Love You Baby”

Wordondasteet is that Kelly Rowland and Pusha T might be dating? Kelly got the internet talking after she posted a few pics on Instagram last night at Prive nightclub in Atlanta hugging up on G.O.O.D. Music’s own Pusha T with the following caption: “I love you baby! #streetlife @kingpush”. Is that normal for people who are “just friends” to caption photos together like that? File this under ‘Things that make you go hmmm…’

Harry Belafonte Asks Jay Z & Beyonce To Have a Sit-Down with Him

Harry Belafonte recently criticized Jay Z and Beyonce, as well as other black celebrities, for what he perceived as their lack of involvement in issues affecting their communities. Mr. Belafonte feels as if they are not using their fame and fortune to bring about a social change and uplift their communities in the way African-American celebrities of his generation did. Jay Z responded by saying his presence alone is charity and serves as an inspiration to young black men. He also took some shots at Mr. Belafonte in his song “Nickels and Dimes” with lines like: “I’m just trying to find common ground/ ‘Fore Mr. Belafonte come and cut a n*gga down/ Mr. Day O, major fail/ Respect these youngins boy, it’s my time now/ Hublot homie two door homie/ You don’t know all the sh*t I do for the homies” . Mr. Belafonte’s final response is a request for Jay Z and Beyonce to have a sit down with him:
“I would be hard pressed to tell Mr. Jay Z what to do with this time and his fortune. All I can be critical is of what he is not doing. This conflict that is emerging was not from me as a direct attack on Jay Z or Beyonce. I was at a press conference in Switzerland. Questions were raised by the international press. They asked about the artists and the social engagement of the past based on a film we were watching…and how artists responded earlier in my life and how they responded today.
“And I made the observation that the highly powerful voice that our community has – Black America has – there is so much celebrity power that it was sad to see that the collective of the celebrity power had not been applied to bring consciousness to the inequities that we face.“Artist that heard that responded in a very strong way. You’ll find that Jamie Foxx, you’ll find Chuck D [of Public Enemy]…you find that any number of highly profiled people have taken that critique and called for [a meeting]. We’ve sat. We’ve talked. And I will tell you now that these people that I’ve just mentioned are officially behind Dream Defenders. They are prepared to come down. They are prepared to perform. I would hope that Jay Z would not take personally what was said because it was not said about him personally.”
Belafonte also mentioned that he would rather talk in private:
“Having said that, I would like to say to Jay Z, to Beyonce: My heart is wide open and filled with nothing but hope and the promise that we can sit and have a one-on-one. And lets understand each other rather than try to answer these questions and these nuances in a public place.”
