Posted By Staff

Date: October 1st, 2014

tomBBC reports that Amazon Prime is accompanying “Tom and Jerry” with a cautionary statement about depictions of racism.

“Tom & Jerry” shorts may depict some ethnic and racial prejudices that were once commonplace in American society. Such depictions were wrong then and are wrong today.

The decision to include the warning definitely ruffled some feathers, with fans on Twitter lamenting the political correctness of the situation.

One fan called it “Political correctness gone mad.” Another added, “So, Tom is basically a racist, sexist, chain-smoking cat. COME ON.”  More

How Ebola Emerged Out of the Jungle

Posted By Staff

Date: October 1st, 2014

apesThe first reported case of the deadly virus came in 1976 and it is named after the Ebola River in the Democratic Republic of Congo which was where it was discovered.

At the time, the area where the disease was spotted was officially recognized as Zaire. The virus has since spread throughout the region.

Non-human primates, like gorillas and chimpanzees, have been cited by the World Health Organization as possible infection sources for humans, but experts have realized that they are not the source of the problem.

The apes have been deemed “accidental hosts,” meaning that they catch the disease and then pass it along but are not the initial “reservoir” source that produces the virus.  More

Ruth Vasquez Rodriguez-MartinezHouston – A northeast Houston woman is accused of choking her 6-year-old son after she caught him drinking chocolate milk.

Ruth Vasquez Rodriguez-Martinez, 23, is charged with injury to a child and abandoning a child — both felonies — after a Houston police investigation.

The boy later told investigators he drank some chocolate milk without his mother’s permission.

When she discovered what happened, she began strangling the boy and then flung him into a closet with such force that his head struck the wall and started bleeding, Houston police said.

She noticed the blood and the cut on her son’s forehead but chose not to seek medical help for him because “she did not want CPS (Child Protective Services) in her life,” according the criminal complaint.  More

Jailed cop killer Abu-Jamal to give college commencement speech

Posted By Staff

Date: October 1st, 2014

killerVermont – A Vermont college’s selection of convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal as commencement speaker is a “despicable” decision that should be reversed, his victim’s widow told FoxNews.com.

Maureen Faulkner, whose husband Daniel was gunned down by Abu-Jamal in 1981, was shocked to learn of the selection by undergraduate students at tiny Goddard College in Plainfield. Abu-Jamal, who will not attend the event and whose speech will be pre-recorded, received a bachelor of arts degree from the 245-student liberal arts college in 1996 through a correspondence program.

Abu-Jamal, born Wesley Cook, was sentenced to death following a high-profile trial in Philadelphia. His sentence was later reduced to life in prison without parole for killing Faulkner, a 25-year-old patrolman.

Abu-Jamal, a member of the Black Panther Party, was wounded by a round from Faulkner’s gun and a .38-caliber revolver registered to Abu-Jamal was found at the scene with five spent shell casings.  More

elevatorGeorgia – A security contractor with a gun and three prior convictions for assault and battery was allowed on an elevator with President Obama during a Sept. 16 trip to Atlanta, violating Secret Service protocols, according to three people familiar with the incident.

The incident occurred as Obama appeared at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to discuss the U.S. response to the Ebola crisis.

When a supervisor from the private security firm approached and learned of the agents’ concern, the contractor was fired on the spot and agreed to turn over his gun — surprising agents, who had not realized he was armed during his encounter with Obama.  More

intruderWashington DC – The man who jumped over the White House fence and sprinted through the main floor of the mansion could have gotten even farther had it not been for an off-duty Secret Service agent who was coincidentally in the house and leaving for the night.

The agent who finally tackled Omar Gonzalez had been serving on the security detail for President Obama’s daughters and had just seen the family depart via helicopter minutes earlier.

He happened to be walking through the house when chaos broke out and the intruder dashed through the main foyer, according to two people familiar with the incident.

Gonzalez, 42, was the first person in modern memory to jump over the White House fence and get into the mansion, largely the result of a failure of numerous layers of Secret Service security on the northern fence line.  More

Feds Pay $91,318 for Bat Population Survey

brown batVirginia – President Obama was counting strokes on the golf course at Fort Belvoir in northern Virginia last Saturday, but the day before a $91,318.76 contract was awarded to count something quite different at Fort Belvoir: bats.

The Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation will conduct the “Bat Population Survey” as part of Fort Belvoir’s Threatened and Endangered Species Surveys.

At least part of the reason for the population survey is to determine if the “little brown bat” or other bats should be placed on the endangered species list.

Were this to happen, the listing could impact “mission related activities” and “development” on the Army base.  More
