Naked couple arrested in bizarre incident

This happened in my neighborhood, not Florida

WESTLAKE, Ohio -- A Bay Village woman and a Cleveland man were arrested in Westlake, Ohio, early Saturday morning after an unclothed, alcohol-fueled night behind the wheel.

Police received a report of a naked male and female outside of a car in the parking lot of a business on Bassett Road, before 12:30 a.m. Saturday. When officers arrived, the pair were inside the car, driving on a treelawn along Crocker Road.

A patrol officer stopped the car. The driver, Alexandria Mauer, 24, was still completely nude, eating a slice of pizza and the passenger, Kenneth Gillespie, 33, also still undressed, was holding an open beer can between his feet.

Both were arrested and ordered to get dressed.

But the night didn't stop there.

Lindsey Graham: Confederate Flag Is a "Part of Who We Are"

Following the mass shooting inside a black church in Charleston, South Carolina on Wednesday, one flag was conspicuously not lowered to half-mast in tribute to the nine lives lost in the deadly attack—the Confederate flag, which regularly flies on the grounds of the state capitol, despite countless calls for its removal because of its racist roots.

The rebel flag's presence in Columbia was especially disturbing this week after images surfaced showing the suspected gunman's embrace of the flag, which was on his license plates. (Dylann Roof also wore patches baring the flags of Apartheid-era South Africa and Rhodesia, the racist symbolism of which was evident.)

While other GOP politicians, including Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, are criticizing the flag's enduring presence, Sen. Lindsey Graham, who hails from South Carolina and is now running for president, has come to the rebel flag's defense. According to Graham, the Confederate flag is an integral "part of who we are."

It says a lot about who "they" are!

Trump paid actors to cheer his 2016 launch: report

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump allegedly paid actors to celebrate his formal campaign launch for president earlier this week.

The new 2016 contender paid extras $50 to participate in his kickoff Tuesday from New York City’s Trump Tower, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The publication said it had obtained an email sent by New York-based Extra Mile Casting last Friday, calling on performers capable of joining the campaign launch earlier this week.

“We are looking to cast people for the event to wear T-shirts and carry signs and help cheer him in support of his announcement,” the June 12 email said.

“We understand this is not a traditional ‘background job,’ but we believe acting comes in all forms and that is inclusive of this school of thought,” it added.

The Hollywood Reporter said the email was sent on behalf of Gotham Government Relations and Communications, a political consulting group in New York that Trump has previously used.

The firm had no comment on possible help for his campaign launch, the publication said.

Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski denied his staff had hired any actors on Wednesday evening.

Issa escorted out of Benghazi deposition

Former House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) tried to crash former Hillary Clinton adviser Sidney Blumenthal’s deposition before the House Select Committee on Benghazi on Tuesday.

Issa marched into the closed-door deposition and remained inside for about a minute before he was escorted out by the panel’s chairman, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.).

The pair briefly exchanged hushed words in a nearby hallway before Issa stormed off, throwing an empty soda can into a nearby trash bin.

NBC News producer Frank Thorp posted a video showing Gowdy and Issa.

Gun Maker Colt Files For Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

NEW YORK (AP) — Gun maker Colt Defense LLC filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy late Sunday, allowing for a quicker sale of operations in the U.S. and Canada.

In its filing, the company estimated that it owes up to $500 million to up to 50 creditors. It also listed assets of up to $500 million.

The West Hartford, Connecticut-based company said it secured $20 million in financing from its current lenders and will continue to operate while in bankruptcy. The entire restructuring process is expected to be complete within 90 days, after which Colt plans to remain in business.

Colt selected Sciens Capital Management LLC as its "stalking horse," or lead bidder, in the sale.

In a statement, Colt said it will be able to reassure its employees of its commitment to continued operations in West Hartford through a long-term extension on the lease for its manufacturing facilities and campus. Union-related agreements will also be unaffected and employees will be paid all wages, salaries and benefits on a timely basis.

How does this happen in a day when gun nuts rule with Conceal Carry everywhere?

This wouldn't be necessary if Lindsey Graham had his way in starting more wars!

Why there is hope for the end of racism...

The only good news about the McKinney pool party is the white kids’ response to racism

In the story of the Texas pool party, where a police officer was caught on tape manhandling and pointing a gun at young black teenagers, there's a lot to be concerned and outraged about. But there's also one tiny thing to celebrate: the actions of two white kids.

Just 14 and 15 years old, they wasted no time speaking on the record about the racist comments made by adults that they said set off the incident, and recording the discriminatory treatment they said they witnessed.

Sadly, when it comes to public opinion about the event, it's likely that these accounts have more weight coming from the white kids than from the black kids who have offered similar stories, but whom many media consumers might see as potential criminals and untrustworthy reporters of what happened.

Their stories shaped the early media narrative of the event, and their sense of responsibility to memorialize what happened should be seen as an example. Many American adults could learn something from their brave decisions to acknowledge rather than avoid or explain away the injustice they saw, but also to make sure the rest of us understood.

I have noticed this with my kids, our girls either don't see color or don't care because people are people and they are friends are friends. That is why I have hope for the future and if we all keep pushing for it in constructive ways, teaching each other, then maybe one day soon, racism will be dead.

Didn’t the McKinney, Texas, police officer know he was being recorded?

This is the question the media is asking? Did he know he was on camera?



A police officer slams an unarmed 15-year-old girl in a bikini to the ground, pulls his gun and kneels on her as teens on either side of him shout and, of course, record the encounter. Within hours, millions watch the video: Some see a defenseless black teen being manhandled by an out-of-control white cop; others see a lone, scared officer in the crowded, chaotic aftermath of a fight he doesn’t yet understand.

Cellphone video has become as much a part of policing as tickets and handcuffs. Video images of police shootings have sparked national turmoil. But Friday’s ugly, cacophonous scene in McKinney, Tex., at first seemed like something more routine — a call about misbehaving teens at a pool party on a hot Texas afternoon.

Then it went awry, at least in the seven-minute version of reality that a local teen posted on YouTube. The clip is the classic kind of video that can crush public trust in police. Yet paradoxically, police chiefs are pushing for more video, in the form of body cameras, to repair relations with those they serve.
