Protesters gathered outside of the Ferguson Police Department on Wednesday night and into Thursday morning as the latest chapter in the shooting death of Michael Brown unfolded.
While the resignation won’t be put into effect until March 19, acting Police Chief Lt. Col. Al Eickhoff said that the shots had been firedfrom across the street from the station and that it was unknown which jurisdiction the two injured officers were from, but it is believed they are from St. Louis County.
Thomas Jackson chose to resign after a federal Justice Department report found that while Darren Wilson won’t face charges, the Ferguson Department itself was guilty of faulty policing.
The two officers were reportedly taken to Barnes-Jewish Hospital.
Suge also stated he had difficulty comprehending the proceedings.
In his court appearance, Suge told the judge that he fired the lawyers present and wanted to represent himself. While Suge tried to speak out during the proceedings, the judge apparently admonished him for doing so, which made Suge curse under his breath.
The judge wanted to transfer the Death Row Records founder’s cases, but Suge had already been hospitalized again.
Another hearing has been set for March 9th, so we’ll keep you posted on any updates.
Well, that newspaper was Toronto’s The Star, and they responded to Ghomeshi’s post by publishing their findings.
According to the paper, three young women have claimed that Ghomeshi was violent with them, and not consensually.
One woman says he slapped and choked her the moment she entered his home – without any discussions of safewords.
Another woman said that in their flirtations, Ghomeshi said he was “aggressive.” She said:
“I thought this meant he would want to pull my hair and have rough sex. He reassured me that I wouldn’t be forced. (Later) he attacked me. Choked me. Hit me like I didn’t know men hit women. I submitted.”
And a third woman said she worked at the CBC with Ghomeshi, and that what he did to her was straight-up sexual harassment, including unwanted comments and touching!
The actor revealed it all in an interview with Interview magazine’s November issue! And he claims he was only role playing with Alec Baldwinwhich eventually led to him being canned from the play Orphans.
“Alec and I butted heads hard. I was sleeping in the park . . . At the time, I was out of my mind. My whole goal was to intimidate the f–k out of Baldwin. That was the role. And it wasn’t going to be fake. I wanted him to be scared . . . So I went about doing that for three weeks of rehearsal.”
But all of that led to him being arrested and Shia seems to have learned his lesson because he then said:
“I was reading about performance art of the ’60s and ’70s and so I thought . . . we’re all involved here. It’s not just your stage. We’re all in here and we’re all part of this. I was wrong.”
Well, we’ll keep an eye out on Shia and see if his antics DO temper down because then maybe this story gets more believable.
However, he may want to maybe not do the whole method acting thing anymore as it kind of seems to put him in dangerous situations.
Something we’re not sure is worth all the headaches no matter how much he thinks it’s working!
Although Latta, South Carolina’s policechiefCrystal Moore was fired by her mayor Earl Bullard after he allegedly blasted her lesbian lifestyle as “questionable,” she has since been rehired!
The town voted to give her her old job back, and to hear the experience from Crystal’s point of view is truly AH-Mazing. Here’s what she had to say about her emotional rehiring:
“All around the street were people cheering me on, wanting me back. People that I had locked up were here saying, ‘You’ve locked me up, but you’ve done it with dignity and respect. You did your job and you did what you were supposed to do and I’m here to support you.’ It was amazing.”
If even the people she’s arrested before were coming out to support, she must be a pretty terrific cop.
It’s sick to think that she might have been fired over her sexual orientation.
After her firing in April, one of the town’s councilman who questioned the true reason for her firing started recording the conversations he had with the mayor, whose true motives he found dubious.
“I’d much rather have somebody who drank and drank too much taking care of my child than I had somebody whose lifestyle is questionable around children, because that ain’t the damn way it’s supposed to be.”
The mayor has since denied that he was referring to Crystal but another gay employee who had quit, and that Crystal’s firing had to do with insubordination.
Crystal denied this however, and stated that she believed his true reason for firing her was a lot more sinister:
“There was no insubordination. tried to work with the mayor. I did not disrespect him. I did exactly what I was supposed to. His personal vendetta, his personal beliefs is what got us into this.”
In the end, Crystal was sworn in again on June 27th! Congrats gurl!
