Dumb




Wow. By dumbing us down educationally speaking it looks like we are going to give our country to a  billionaire.  We used to deserve better than a casino owning, beauty pageant owning, reality show star. No more.

I can tell the world still needs work by the way people stare at me while I am grocery shopping and singing "I am beautiful" as loud as I can.

Before HIGGINBOTHAM, CLEMENT, and HIGGINSON, Circuit Judges.
DISMISSED in part; AFFIRMED in part; REVERSED in part; and REMANDED. (September 25, 2015).
Ryan Cole, who was seventeen-years-old and suffered from obsessive-compulsive disorder, had an argument with his parents one night in October 2010. Afterwards, he took guns and ammunition from his parents' gun safe. Police began to search for Ryan after they were notified and informed that Ryan was armed with at least one firearm. Ryan was severely injured in an armed encounter with police.   As a result, Ryan and his parents brought suit against Officers Michael Hunter and Martin Cassidy, alleging that they violated Ryan's Fourth Amendment right not to be subjected to excessive force. They also sued Officer Carl Carson, alleging that Carson violated Ryan's rights under the Fourth and Fourteenth Amendments by lying and concealing evidence in order to protect Hunter and Cassidy; that he caused Ryan to be wrongfully charged with aggravated assault of a public servant. The District Court denied Carson's motion to dismiss and Hunter and Cassidy's motion for summary judgment, rejecting the officers' immunity defense at the motion stage of the case. The Fifth Circuit dismisses defendants' appeal of the District Court's order refusing to grant summary judgment on the excessive force claim. Because the factual disputes identified by the District Court - including the central issue of whether Ryan pointed his gun at Officer Hunter - were material, the Court explains that it is without jurisdiction to review the excessive force claim. The Court affirms the District Court's refusal to dismiss the due process claim relating to fabrication of evidence.
On Appeals from the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas (Reed Charles O'Connor).
Attorney for Appellant - James Thomas Jeffrey, Jr., Arlington, TX
Attorney for Appellee - Rowe Jack Ayres, Jr., Addison, T

Promotional rap video leads to arrest warrant; did portrayal contribute to fatal shooting by police?


Share1
A video posted on social media showing a man with a gun behind a police officer has led to the arrest of one person and a search for another. And it may have caused skittish police officers to believe someone was shooting at them when they fatally shot a man.
Los Angeles police investigating the video learned that it was a promotional video made by a 1990s rap group trying to make a comeback, report the Los Angeles Times,NBC Los Angeles and CBS Los Angeles.
Before that discovery, police took the video as a possible threat and warned officers about it. Police Chief Charlie Beck has confirmed that police officers who fatally shot a man on Saturday were aware of the video. Officers opened fire after the rear window of their patrol car was broken by what they believed was gunfire. It turned out the window had been broken by a beer bottle.
A lawyer for the officers, Gary Fullerton, said officers had been warned about the video and the possibility they could be ambushed from behind. “Both officers were very focused on that,” Fullerton told the Los Angeles Times. “When the window got blown out, they looked at each other and said, ‘We’re being shot at.’ ”
One person involved in the video was arrested on an outstanding warrant. Police obtained a warrant for the arrest of a second man, who was shown holding a gun in the video. Police alleged he violated the law by having a loaded gun in a car.
A lawyer for the wanted man is arranging his surrender, according to NBC Los Angeles. One man in the rap group that shot the video told TMZ the gun was a plastic prop.
