POLICE: CHICAGO TEEN APPARENTLY GANG-RAPED ON FACEBOOK LIVE

A 15-year-old Chicago girl was apparently sexually assaulted by five or six men or boys on Facebook Live, and none of the roughly 40 people who watched the live video reported the attack to police, authorities said Tuesday.

Emphasis added, because Bell Curve City.





World War (B)T

Salisbury, North Carolina

Read all about it, H/T LoS.  Even the TV station’s call letters have BT in them.

What does it all mean?

Fortysomething black man pretending to be a black woman shoots silicone into the ass of a 19-year old black man, probably because he wants to pretend to be a black woman, too, but he dies from complications of the undocumented medical procedure.

At the intersectionality of World War T and Bell Curve City.

State of Emergency concert to highlight social issues, surprise guests

To celebrate all things St. Louis, 314 Day will be coming to town Tuesday March 14. The day is based off of St. Louis’ area code and is a day about unity.

The State of Emergency concert is happening that night at Chaifetz Area and is all about highlighting social issues that impact the city.

“Sometimes kids want to hear a message from the person that’s not in a suit,” said Loose Cannon Slim, promoter of the concert. “Like the school teacher or lawyers they want to see from the people they watch on TV every day and stuff like that.”

The concert is partnered with “Better Family Life” and the confirmed artists in the lineup are: Jeezy, Migos, Gucci Mane and a number of other surprise guests.

I’ve added the hyperlinks in the above blockquote. Because, as you know, kids want to hear a message from a person that’s not in a suit. Unless it’s a jail or prison jump suit.

I’m so old that I remember when March 14 was Pi Day.





Grieving Girlfriend

8 03 2017

St. Paul, Minnesota

Look what the girlfriend of the late Philando Castile (who, incidentally, was buried at Calvary on the north side) has been up to lately.

Two things are true about your blogmeister:

(1) I have a logical and reasonable mind, and I’m as good as anyone when it comes to informal propositional logic, and pretty good in other forms of logic.

(2) Professionally, among other things, I do PR.

These two things lead me to respective but contradictory conclusions about this story:

(1) It is fallacious to write anything or to fill in the open questions about the Philando Castile case because of the very recent antics of his girlfriend.

(2) Most people will do that anyway, that this is the kind of woman he (supposedly) had as a love interest will make people side eye him, more and more people will jump off his bandwagon and onto the cop’s bandwagon.

Speaking of the cop, in case you haven’t already seen a pic of the cop, there is one in this video.

Even more rare than the ivory-billed woodpecker.  So when you get good quality video of the species, you cherish it.





“Mother of Ten”

And quite the weave aficionado, too.

To the heart of the matter:

Smith told 7News she believes the person or people behind the drive-by shooting were targeting her 17-year-old son because of a fight he had gotten into more than a year ago. “Leave my child alone!” Smith said.

Now hold up.  It was just about five current years ago that we were assured that 17-year old guys from Miami Gardens were all pure saints, with their Skittles, bottled iced tea and cough syrup in tow.
