Another man goes on a shooting spree: Teen and police officer killed

James brown shooting victimsA man by the name of James Brown went on a shooting spree on May 31st.

As a result two innocent people were murdered. One a boy of 17 years and the other a police officer.

James Brown was reported to have started shooting randomly as he drove through Norfolk, Virginia.

Mark Rodriguez was on his way home from a celebration of his high school graduation when he was shot in his car. He was declared dead at the scene at the young age of 17.

A police officer was also killed when he spotted Brown’s car near his home. After they spotted the car, the gunman shot officer Brian Jones and Curtis Allison multiple times from inside his home. Allison tried to help Jones, who was shot multiple times. Both officers were taken to the hospital where Jones later passed away. Allison is expected to make a full recovery.

James tried to escape after killing one officer and injuring the other. He ended up crashing into another car when trying to get away. Police officers say that Brown resisted arrest and tried to take the policeman’s gun. He was shot by the officer who was trying to arrest him and pronounced dead at the scene.  Continue reading “Another man goes on a shooting spree: Teen and police officer killed”

Chris Brown Lost His Virginity in Grade School

Chris brown shirtless the guardianDuring a chat with The Guardian, Chris Brown reveals that he had his cherry popped by an “older woman” when he was just 8-years-old. He says this type of thing is accepted in the country, specifically his podunk population-2,000 town of Tappahannock, Virginia.

He lost his virginity when he was eight years old, to a local girl who was 14 or 15. Seriously? “Yeah, really. Uh-huh.” He grins and chuckles. “It’s different in the country.” Brown grew up with a great gang of boy cousins, and they watched so much porn that he was raring to go. “By that point, we were already kind of like hot to trot, you know what I’m saying? Like, girls, we weren’t afraid to talk to them; I wasn’t afraid. So, at eight, being able to do it, it kind of preps you for the long run, so you can be a beast at it.”

He later refuses to reveal exactly how many women he’s slept with, but does make sure to tell us that “they can’t really complain” [because he’ll beat them if they do].  Continue reading “Chris Brown Lost His Virginity in Grade School”

Obama Calls Out Mitt’s Backtracking, Labels It ‘Romnesia’

At a speech in Virginia at George Mason University yesterday afternoon Obama addressed his running opponent Mitt Romney‘s “backtracking” and “sidestepping” ways, humorously labeling the condition “Romnesia.”

Here are the symptoms, so nobody else catches it:

If you say you’re for equal pay for equal work, but you keep refusing to say whether or not you’d sign a bill that protects equal pay for equal work – you might have Romnesia.

If you say women should have access to contraceptive care, but you support legislation that would let your employer deny you contraceptive care – you might have a case of Romnesia.  Continue reading “Obama Calls Out Mitt’s Backtracking, Labels It ‘Romnesia’”

Gabby Douglas’ Gym ‘Friends’ Respond To Bullying Remarks

16-year-old Gabby Douglas may be a double gold medalist in gymnastics, but we all know the road leading to her explosive performances at the London Olympics couldn’t have been easy.

Her mother, Natalie Hawkins, filed for bankruptcy earlier this year, a few years after Gabby had moved away from her friends and family in Virginia to train in Iowa alongside Shawn Johnson.

Turns out, her reasons for moving might have been partially related to the toxic environment at her former gym.

“One of my teammates was like, ‘Can you scrape the bar?’ And they were like, ‘Why doesn’t Gabby do it, she’s our slave?'” Douglas told Oprah in a new interview on OWN’s Next Chapter.  Continue reading “Gabby Douglas’ Gym ‘Friends’ Respond To Bullying Remarks”
