I guess talking about himself isn't enough to sell his book. People already know he's crazy. Nothing new here. So he decides to spill the beans or make up shyt on other people to make his book sell. How many people really want to purchase a book about him having sex with a ghost? He's probably been doing that for years since Whitney left him. By the way, that wasn't a Ghost. It's called a hand.

6  Discussion / General Discussion Forum / 20 dead, 42 wounded in Orlando shooting on: June 12, 2016, 07:19:16 AM
ORLANDO, FL (RNN) - A hostage situation left approximately 20 dead and 42 injured at a night club in Orlando in what officials are calling "domestic terrorism."

Police responded to calls of a shooting at 2 a.m. Eastern and exchanged gunfire with a shooter inside Pulse, a night club catering to homosexuals. The gunman then took hostages and police entered the club about three hours later, exchanging more gunfire and killing the suspect.

Orlando Police Chief John Mina confirmed at 7 a.m. that there are approximately 20 dead inside the club and at least 42 people were taken to three area hospitals.

Mina said the shooter was carrying a handgun, a rifle and a "suspicious device" with him. He said officers decided to rescue the hostages at 5 a.m. using an explosive device to enter through a wall in the club. At 5:45 a.m., police tweeted that the suspect was dead.

Mina said about 30 people were rescued after police entered the building.

Police said the shooter was "organized and well-prepared" and is not from the Orlando area. Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings called it a "domestic terrorism incident" and an FBI spokesman said officials were looking into any connections the shooter may have had to terrorist groups.

Police said the gunman was carrying an assault style rifle and a handgun.

"We are a strong, resilient community," Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer said. "We need to stand strong and we need to be supportive of the victims and their families."

Dozens of vehicles including the Orlando Fire Department's bomb squad and hazardous material team arrived at the scene of the shooting, which occurred around 2 a.m.

Near the time of the shooting, the club posted on its Facebook page, "Everyone get out of pulse and keep running."

After news of the shooting, family members and friends of people who were known to be in the club awaited word about injuries or possible deaths.

Chris Hansen managed to escape the club after shots rang out.

"It was just one after another, after another, after another. It could've lasted a whole song, because after everybody was out, shootings were still going and the cops were yelling, 'Go, go, clear the area, clear the area!'" Hansen said.

CNN reports three Orlando area hospitals have been placed on lockdown because of the mass shooting. There were reports of additional shots fired at a nearby hospital, but Mina said that claim was unfounded.

As day broke Sunday morning, buses arrived to transport those who had not been injured but were inside the club at the time. On Twitter, the police called calling for witnesses to go to police HQ.

Ricardo J. Negron Almodovar, commenting on Facebook, said he witnessed the incident.

"I was there. Shooter opened fire @ around 2:00 a.m. People on the dance floor and bar got down on the floor and some of use who were near the bar and back exit managed to go out through the outdoor area and just ran," Almodovar wrote.

The hashtag #prayfororlando, which emerged on Twitter after the fatal shooting of singer Christina Grimmie Friday night at the city's Plaza Live Theater, is once again trending on Twitter. Grimmie was killed after her concert at the venue by a 27-year-old man who later killed himself.

Mina said there was no indication the Pulse shooting was connected to Grimmie's murder.

8  Discussion / General Discussion Forum / Police suspend search for missing pregnant teacher; assistant principal arrested on: June 11, 2016, 01:01:44 AM

Police spent most of Friday searching several areas, including Iberville Parish, for a pregnant Baton Rouge teacher, who went missing Wednesday evening.

The assistant principal of the Baton Rouge middle school where she works has been arrested in connection with her disappearance.

Authorities converged on a waterway in Ramah, in Iberville Parish, Friday afternoon as they searched for the missing woman who was once named "Teacher of the Year" and currently teaches at Brookstown Middle Magnet Academy.

Cpl. L'Jean McKneely with the Baton Rouge Police Department said they are following all leads, but the search was suspended at nightfall. They are not expected to pick it back up on Saturday.

The teacher, 40-year-old Lyntell Washington, was reported missing Thursday morning after her 3-year-old daughter was found alone near her vehicle in Baton Rouge. Blood was found inside the vehicle.

The assistant principal, Robert Jovantie Marks, 39, faces aggravated kidnapping and child desertion charges because Washington's child was left abandoned in a parking lot.

Marks is married to another woman and police suspect he might have been fearful that his wife would find out that he had gotten the teacher pregnant, according to police records.

Police say cell phone records show Marks' phone as well as a phone belonging to Washington were in the Ramah area around 9:45 p.m. Wednesday. Both phones were in that area for about 15 minutes before returning to Baton Rouge, according to police documents

According to the probable cause report, the child told investigators that "'Mr. Robbie' hurt her mother and was now sleeping." It also revealed the child was with her mother and Marks "when she heard a 'bang' and after the bang her mom was 'shaking.' She also stated that her mom's in the lake and that it was dark outside when her mom got hurt."

McKneely said that detectives also learned that Marks took Washington's 3-year-old daughter for a ride on Wednesday night and left her unattended in a parking in the 11000 block of Newcastle Avenue.

Officials with the East Baton Rouge Parish School System confirmed that Washington was the 2014-15 Teacher of the Year.

"Our thoughts are with the family of Brookstown Middle Instructional Specialist Lyntell Washington as we remain hopeful for her safe return to family and friends soon," said Adonica Dougan, spokesperson for EBR Schools. "[She] is a valued member of the East Baton Rouge Parish System team."

They also confirmed that Marks is the assistant principal at the same school and has been placed on administrative leave.

Washington's child was turned over to family members.

Investigators said foul play is suspected. They also searched waterways in Baton Rouge, Baker, Zachary, and St. Francisville.

Anyone with information about Washington’s whereabouts are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 225-344-7867 or Missing Persons at 225-389-8617.

9  Discussion / Sports Forum / Cavs coaching staff prepping for ASU transition on: June 10, 2016, 01:18:34 AM
The Darton State baseball staff is spending their last few weeks as Cavaliers hosting the program's final baseball camp. But they're also preparing to be Golden Rams.

On July 1, they'll trade in the red and white for the blue and gold of Albany State.

The coaches are going through the process of getting NCAA-certified. After that, it's time to hit the road to recruit.

Hemmings says the work as head coach of the Golden Rams began a few weeks ago, and he's already making the goals clear for Albany State.

"We were wrapping up our stuff at Darton, but if anybody knows me, we've already started making plans. I'm not going to sit still very long," Hemmings says. "We've already started reaching out and seeing what it's going to take. We don't want to just compete in the SIAC. We want to be a Division II school that competes at any level in any conference."

Hemmings says he's excited to keep his current staff intact. He thinks that will also help with the transition.

10  Discussion / Sports Forum / White Water Classic Between Albany State/Tuskegee to return to Phenix City on: June 09, 2016, 03:07:37 AM
The game between Tuskegee and Albany State will be played on Sept. 10

The Phenix City Council on Tuesday recommitted to the White Water Classic football game between Tuskegee University and Albany State.

The council approved on a 4-1 vote to authorize City Manager Wallace Hunter and Mayor Eddie Lowe to enter into a $125,000 contract with Tuskegee to play its home game in Garrett-Harrison Stadium on Sept. 10. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m.

The city is also considering submitting a bid to host the Stagg Bowl, the NCAA Division III national championship game that was played in Phenix City (1973-1982 and 1985-1989), Finance Director Steve Smith said.

This will be the third year the Tuskegee-Albany State game has been played in Phenix City and city officials touted it as an economic win for the city. According to a Troy University economic impact study, the game has generated about $800,00 in financial benefit to the city, Smith told council.

“The hotels are full that weekend, and it is a tremendous economic benefit to the city,” Smith said.

The initial White Water Classic in 2014 was a $250,000 economic impact and last year’s game was in excess of $500,000, Smith said.

Last year, Albany State received $100,000 plus expenses to play its home game in Phenix City. Smith said the amount payable to Tuskegee this year was increased by $25,000 and the university will be responsible for its own expenses.

Council member Gail Head voted against the motion and said her reasons were tied to the city charging the Phenix City School System for Central High to play its home games in the city-owned facility.

“I can’t with good conscience give any team $125,000 to play one game here when we charge the Central team to play in that stadium,” Head said.

Hunter defended the position, saying “there was a cost to everything.”

She's been dead for 5 years. 

She and Rue Mcclanahan seem to die every 8 months or so.

With that being said, may she continue to rest in peace.

Why was so easy for the child to get into the cage?

Kid crawled UNDER the rails.

If a kid can crawl under a rail and get into a Gorilla cage that easy it sure isn't "child proof safe".
