Florida Cops Shoot and Kill Deaf Man For ‘Talking Too Loud’


Florida Cops Shoot and Kill Deaf Man For ‘Talking Too Loud’

A deaf man was just shot by Volusia County sheriff’s deputy Joel Hernandez and the excuse the killer cop gave boils down to the fact that he was talking too loud.

Darice Podgorski-Beneddix, 44, an employee at Fryer’s, reported to Daytona police officers that the elder Miller “was being rude and yelling at her.” The elder Miller said he “may have been yelling due to him being hard of hearing however in no way was he trying to be rude.”

mployee Erik Stewart, 51, told Podgorski-Beneddix that the younger Miller “had a gun holstered on his right side hip.” Podgorski-Beneddix then called for police assistance “out of fear for their safety,” according to the report.

Officers determined the younger Miller had an up-to-date concealed weapons license to carry the gun, and it was returned to him.

Random act of kindness rebounds big time

Firefighters touched by waitress' generous act

A New Jersey waitress is making headlines for a small, kind gesture that turned into something big.

One of the firefighters, Tim Young, told WPVI, "When it came time for the bill, we flipped it over and she decided to comp it on her own."
"I started tearing up and it made me feel good - us firefighters are wanted, people care about us," firefighter Paul Hullings said.

The firefighters later learned that Liz was trying to raise enough money to buy a specialized van for her dad who has become paralyzed after a brain aneurysm five years ago -- so they spread the word.

Liz said, "The fact that it's reached, you know, different states, different cities...It was spread across the world. I'm at a loss for words. I'm at a loss for words."

The Civil War ENDED 150 years, two months, and a couple of

weeks ago! Why are DUers still fighting it? No one living today was alive during that war. There is no way we can change what happened in the past. We can only try to make things better now and in the future.

And we are not going to do that by continuing the sectionalism that helped tear this country apart 154 years ago. It certainly is not going to foster the good will that is needed for all of us to work together to overcome the hurdles that still stand in the way of a equal and just society.
