People Jailed for Owing Less Taxes Than Al Sharpton

peopleWashington DC – Serial tax avoidance appears to be a hallmark of Al Sharpton’s operations. But there’s a warning here: Others have gone to prison for lesser amounts.

The list includes rock legend Chuck Berry, Grammy winner Lauryn Hill, Ron Isley of the Isley Brothers, Survivor reality star Richard Hatch, hotel queen Leona Helmsely, and baseball’s Pete Rose.

Sharpton also said: “I think it’s political…a lot of people don’t like the fact that President Obama is president. A lot of people don’t like the fact that Bill de Blasio won for mayor. And they certainly don’t like the fact that I’m still here.”

In 1979, the rock legend, Chuck Berry, served a five-month sentence at California’s Lompoc Prison Camp after he was found guilty of evading $200,000 in taxes. Berry was also ordered to do 1,000 hours of community service upon his release.  More

NBC’s Brian Williams recants Iraq story after soldiers say he wasn’t there

Category: Bizarre, strange, Weird

williamsWASHINGTON – NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams admitted Wednesday he was not aboard a helicopter hit and forced down by RPG fire during the invasion of Iraq in 2003, a false claim that has been repeated by the network for years.

The admission came after crew members on the 159th Aviation Regiment’s Chinook that was hit by two rockets and small arms fire told Stars and Stripes that the NBC anchor was nowhere near that aircraft or two other Chinooks flying in the formation that took fire.

Williams arrived in the area about an hour later on another helicopter after the other three had made an emergency landing, the crew members said.

The claim rankled Sgt. 1st Class Joseph Miller as well as soldiers aboard the formation of 159th Aviation Regiment Chinooks that were flying far ahead and did come under attack during the March 24, 2003 mission.  More

Chanel LemelleFRANCISVILLE, Louisiana – A Louisiana teacher is out of a job after police allege she kicked and slapped one of her first grade students last month.

Chanel Lemelle, 31, resigned from her position at Bains Lower Elementary School in St. Francisville last week as investigators looked into allegations she struck a student in the cafeteria during lunch Jan. 23, The Advocate reports.

“She’s very sad that this is going on,” Lemelle’s attorney, Don Cazayoux, told the news site. “She loves teaching, loves her students and would never do anything to hurt any of her children.”

Camera footage of the school’s cafeteria and witness reports, however, tell a different story.

“A sheriff’s deputy who reviewed camera footage of the incident wrote in an arrest report that as the student walked by Lemelle in the school’s cafeteria, she could be seen kicking him in the rear,” according to The Advocate.  More

rickWashington DC – A 911 operator told a teenage girl to “stop whining” just after her father was fatally struck by a car as he tried to change a flat tire along the Baltimore Washington Parkway last weekend.

Rick Warrick (picture), 38, and his fiancee were taking his two teenage children to Dave & Buster’s at the Arundel Mills mall when their tire went flat on the BW Parkway in Anne Arundel County.

Warrick pulled to the shoulder and got out of their 2007 Hyundai Sonata to change the tire. Warrick had gotten the doughnut onto the car and was tightening the lugs around 9:15 p.m. when they were both struck by a car that did not stop.

“OK, let’s stop whining. OK, let’s stop whining. It’s hard to understand you… two people were struck, correct?” the operator said.  More
