911 Operator Jailed For Hanging Up On Thousands Of Emergency Calls Because She Wasn’t In The Mood

In the philosophical words of our beloved Flavor Flav…

” get up get, get get down
911 is a joke in yo town… Get up, get, get, get down
Late 911 wears the late crown”

Via Bossip — A lot of us “phone it in” for a few minutes here and there while at work…but one Texas woman took it to the point of criminality in a career where your presence on the job is a life or death matter.

SMH! Terrible. Alot of people rely on 911 for health emergencies, etc.

Columbine Survivors Join Parkland Students to Push for Change 19 Years After Massacre

I really admire these students for standing up and doing what is right to protect not only themselves, but hopefully generations to come. Growing up in the 80’s, I can not imagine having endured such evil and hate in the world. The most of our troubles were school yard bullies. I can’t help but believe that having to live through the horror of something as tragic as a school shooting will affect these children for the rest of their lives. It’s up to us as a community to be that pillar of support in keeping them safe.

Report: Lead Found In Hundreds of Chicago Homes’ Water

Here we go again.

See the source image

Toxic lead was found in tap water drawn from nearly 70% of 2,797 homes across Chicago within the past two years, according to a Chicago Tribune analysis of results from the tested water. The daily newspaper published a report on that analysis Thursday.

Tap water in three of every 10 homes included in the analysis had lead concentrations above 5 parts per billion, the Tribune reported.

Lead can leach from certain kinds of pipes as water travels from utilities to home faucets. The US Environmental Protection Agency has set its limit for lead in tap water at 15 parts per billion — but for bottled water, according to the US Food and Drug Administration, the limit is 5 parts per billion.

Lead exposure can affect nearly every system in the body, and no safe blood lead level in children has been identified, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s why the concentrations found in Chicago are raising a few eyebrows.

My immediate take is that Chicago has a lead problem,” said Dr. Philip Landrigan, dean for global health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and an expert on environmental pollution in children, who was not involved in the Tribune’s analysis.

However, “nobody should panic here. This is a problem that has to be dealt with, but it’s not a cause for panic,” he said. “In the meantime, fortunately, children can be protected here simply by switching water sources,” such as by drinking bottled water.

Lead is a naturally occurring metal found deep within the ground and has been used in a variety of products, including paint, pipes, gasoline, batteries and even cosmetics. Yet to the human body, lead exposure can be toxic.

Exposure is especially dangerous for young children and for pregnant women because the developing brain of a fetus in the womb or a young baby is very sensitive to lead, and even very low levels of lead exposure can cause brain injury in a child with loss of IQ and disruption of behavior,” Landrigan said. “So people have to take this quite seriously.”

Megan Vidis, a spokeswoman for the Chicago Department of Water Management, said in a statement to CNN on Thursday that the city’s water beats the standards set by the EPA year after year.

The department “takes a proactive approach to mitigating lead in our water system by introducing corrosion control into water mains; providing residences and businesses with complete instructions for flushing whenever there is any water infrastructure work being done in the vicinity; and free lead testing of drinking water,” the statement said.


Um, yea ok.

Is it a coincidence that Chicago, like Detroit, is a predominately urban city with this ongoing lead issue? Could racial demographics be the delay in getting these lead filled pipes replaced in these particular cities?

White Girl Vicky Gets Arrested In N.C. ‘Mall Brawl’

Reading her rights: On Saturday, Woah Vicky (real name Victoria Waldrip) was arrested at at Greensboro, North Carolina¿s Four Seasons Town Centre

Black white girl Woah Vicky (real name Victoria Waldrip) was arrested at Greensboro, North Carolina’s Four Seasons Town Centre Mall and charged with ‘trespassing, assault on a law enforcement officer and resisting, delaying or obstructing an officer’ according to Blast.

In an explosive video recorded by mall goers, Black white girl Vicky is seen being wrestled to the ground by the police. Eventually the cops handcuff Waldrip’s hands behind her back, get her to her feet and lead her away.

The blonde teen courted controversy in July last year for claiming she is actually black.

Victoria claims that a DNA test proved what she says she has always believed: That even though she has dirty blonde her and pale skin, she is actually black, not white.

Since then, the Atlanta, Georgia native has taken to regularly posting pictures and videos online, speaking in an ‘urban accent’, repeatedly saying the N-word, and embracing what she sees as black culture – wearing grills, do-rags and shower caps over her very straight hair, twerking, and fighting.

My whole entire life my mom kept telling me “you’re white” and I never believed her because I knew I was black,’ she said, adding that she will celebrate the day she ‘found out she was black’ as her new birthday.

Welp. Welcome to the wonderful world of being “black” white girl Vicky.

I’m sure her parents are so ashamed proud of her.

If you ask me, she is a downright stereotypical parody of the African American race and I find nothing funny with her facade. Actually it’s a disgrace.

We don’t believe you black white girl Vicky!! — and just a friendly hint of advice: watch who you drop those N-word bombs around!

Indiana Woman Gets Caught Stealing, Throws Feces — Escapes

Today’s WTF news comes out of the Midwest. Apparently there’s a lot of manure going on in Mernards.

According to several national news outlets:

A woman trying to steal a video camera from an Indianapolis store escaped after throwing feces at a security worker.

Indianapolis police responded Tuesday to a Menards on the city’s east side and a loss prevention officer told them that he saw the shoplifting suspect remove the camera from its packaging and place it into a bag.

The officer told the police that when he tried to stop the woman from leaving she reached into her pants, pulled out a handful of feces and threw it at him. He says the feces hit him in the chest. The woman ran out the door and escaped.

The camera was recovered and they’re trying to locate the woman.


So she just had manure waiting at her leisure?
