Is It Ever ‘OK’ For an Officer to Shoot an Unarmed Civilian?

Officer who shot mike brownThere are a lot of heated discussions surrounding the shooting of Michael Brown, the unarmed African-American teen shot and killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri earlier this month (bringing back all-too-fresh memories of the killing of Trayvon Martin in Florida).

While we have yet to know why Brown was shot, if there is a “reason” at all, we now know the identity of the officer and, thanks to an autopsy conducted on Sunday, the exact amount of times Brown was shot.

28-year-old Darren Wilson controversially put two bullets in Brown’s head and four more in his right arm while, according to witnesses and other reports, his hands were in the air, not holding or reaching for a weapon of any kind.

This is clearly bullcrap, because he knew his exact schedule when he signed on.

A source tells Hollywood Life that Charlie didn’t want Fifty Shades to be “his version of Showgirls,” which seems much closer to the truth, because he’s too decent of an actor to become the laughing-stock of Charming, L.A. and England all because of a paycheck.  Continue reading “Charlie Hunnam Drops ‘Fifty Shades’ Faster Than You Can Say ‘Inner Goddess’”

Kim Kardashian’s Reason For Divorce

I’m sure you’re dying to know what the very predictable and slightly disappointing reason for Kim Kardashian‘s separation from Kris Humphries actually was. They split after 72 days of marriage but were both tight-lipped about what really happened.

Turns out, nothing interesting happened. Their circuit boards just weren’t compatible. On Sunday’s finale episode of Kourtney And Kim Take New York Kim said “My Heart Isn’t Connecting.” She also broke down in tears and told her sister,

“You think I feel good that I like met this guy from Minnesota and I feel awful that like I made him move out here… I feel bad for the guy. I changed his whole life and he fell in love with me and I fell in love with him and now all my feelings have changed.”  Continue reading “Kim Kardashian’s Reason For Divorce”
