In light of the outrageous revelations of alleged sexual misconduct involving Hollywood super-producer Harvey Weinstein, actor Terry Crews has decided to share his own story.
The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star and former NFL baller revealed in a series of tweets that he was once sexually assaulted while attending a Hollywood event with his wife.
"This whole thing with Harvey Weinstein is giving me PTSD. Why? Because this kind of thing happened to ME," tweeted Crews on Tuesday afternoon.
Crews, 49, went on to share the whole story of what went down and why he never reported it.
"My wife n I were at a Hollywood function last year n a high level Hollywood executive came over 2 me and groped my privates...Jumping back I said What are you doing?! My wife saw everything n we looked at him like he was crazy. He just grinned like a jerk...
"I was going to kick his ass right then— but I thought twice about how the whole thing would appear...“240 lbs. Black Man stomps out Hollywood Honcho” would be the headline the next day...Only I probably wouldn’t have been able to read it because I WOULD HAVE BEEN IN JAIL. So we left..."
A jury convicted a former Oklahoma police officer of first-degree manslaughter late Wednesday in connection with the fatal shooting of his daughter’s 19-year-old boyfriend.
Shannon Kepler, 57, who is white, was found guilty in his fourth trial on a first-degree murder charge for the August 2014 shooting of Jeremey Lake, who was black.
A jury recommended Kepler serve 15 years in prison for the lesser charge of manslaughter, according to his defense attorney, Richard O’Carroll. A sentencing hearing is scheduled for Nov. 20.
Kepler, who was an off-duty police officer at the time of the incident, said he was acting in self-defense when he fatally shot Lake. He said he thought Lake was armed with a gun, the Associated Press reported, but no weapon was found on or near Lake’s body.
Kepler’s three previous trials, in November, February and July, were all declared mistrials after they ended with hung juries. Each trial was tinged with racial overtones and civil rights activists accused Kepler’s lawyers of trying to minimize the number of black jurors, CBS reported. Each of the three hung juries had only one African American juror.
Lake’s death took place during a particularly tense time in the country, just four days before Michael Brown, an unarmed black teen, was shot and killed by Darren Wilson, a white Ferguson, Mo., police officer. Brown’s death spurred unrest in the city, led to protests across the country and set off a nationwide debate about the way black people are treated by law enforcement.
In another Tulsa case that drew national attention, an Oklahoma jury in May acquitted Betty Shelby, a white police officer, in the fatal shooting of an unarmed black man, Terence Crutcher. A prosecutor had charged Shelby with first-degree manslaughter, saying she became “emotionally involved to the point that she overreacted.” She was one of only a few female officers to be charged in a fatal shooting in the past decade.
Civil rights activists lauded Wednesday’s verdict as a rare conviction involving a fatal shooting of a black person at the hands of law enforcement, though he wasn’t on duty at the time of the killing. Police officers rarely face charges for fatal shootings, and most of those who do are cleared or acquitted, The Washington Post has reported.
Kepler’s daughter, Lisa Kepler, had just started dating Lake when he was fatally shot. She had been living in a homeless shelter on and off, after being kicked out of her parents’ home. Kepler said he learned through his daughter’s Facebook profile that she had begun dating Lake, the Tulsa World reported. Kepler testified that his daughter’s relationships and interactions with boys had created major conflict at home.
Kepler testified to the jury that he went to the home where Lake lived with his aunt because he was concerned for his daughter’s safety. Kepler, a 24-year-veteran of the force, had uncovered information about Lake using tools available through the Tulsa Police Department.
Investigators later recovered a copy of a police report from an incident that took place when Lake was a minor. Lake’s address and presumed race — black — were written on the back, homicide detective Mark Kennedy testified last week, according to the Tulsa Police Department.
Lisa Kepler was walking with her boyfriend near his home when she saw her father’s black Chevrolet Suburban drive toward them. When he asked her what she was doing there, she walked away, according to police records. Lake then walked toward the SUV and told Kepler he was his daughter’s boyfriend. Kepler then shot Lake, he later admitted, claiming that he thought he saw him reach for a gun.
“He’s bringing it, I’m bringing it,” Kepler told the courtroom on Wednesday, according to the AP. “It was either him or me. I’m not going to stand there and get shot.”
But Lake’s aunt testified that her nephew was actually reaching out to shake Kepler’s hand and introduce himself when he fired, CBS News reported.
Prosecutors alleged in their closing arguments that Kepler “hunted” Lake down and initiated the altercation with him because he was “the boy” his daughter had chosen to date, the Tulsa World reported.
Assistant District Attorney Kevin Gray noted in court that Kepler left the scene without calling 911 or attempting to giving medical attention to Lake, the Tulsa World reported. Kepler turned himself in about 2½ hours after the shooting, and retired from the force after being charged.
O’Carroll, Kepler’s lawyer, told The Washington Post his client’s fourth trial was “not a level playing field by any stretch of the imagination.”
“If the government is going to prosecute you four times in a row,” he said. “The odds of you being convicted go up.”
“They argued racism without a shred of evidence,” O’Carroll added, arguing the judge “was biased from the beginning. I know that sounds like sour grapes, but it’s the truth.”
Ive gotten into a variety of fights coming up in my childhood/adolescence
Got suspended every yr of high school
Had to sign a contract stating, one more fight then I"ll be expelled from the school
Trained in the art of Boxing since I was 16
Thinking about picking up a couple more disciplines such as Krav Maga, Muay Thai, MMA (in general) and Wing Chun
Especially Krav Maga
Combative Sports are entertaining, informative and helpful
Question is, is it worth it to get into at least one physical altercation in your life
At least growing up?
I believe so, for the fact getting into a fight teaches you the harsh reality of life
Some people may not like you
Some people may dislike what you say
And some ppl may want to physically harm you and your loved ones and you NEED to know how to protect yourself
Cause without fighting skills/martial arts
You can't protect no one
Let alone yourself
...why'd I do that?
i just got a 50" hdr 4k tv because it was getting too hard for me to read the text in video games. As soon as i plugged it in I realized I could have just got a new pair of glasses.
I don't even really watch a lot of quality tv and movies like that. What the fuck was I thinking?
Another time that comes to mind was when I paid 24 bills for a shot of mezcal (del maguey pechuga). Mind you the shit was tasty and all but i woke up the next morning and had questions for myself about the trajectory that my life was on that I couldn't really answer.
If Texas and/or Florida were all black states, the same would be happening to our people. The only reason he sent immediate help was because there are mostly white people living in those states.
Lost weekend: How Trump’s time at his golf club hurt the response to Maria
At first, the Trump administration seemed to be doing all the right things to respond to the disaster in Puerto Rico.
As Hurricane Maria made landfall that Wednesday, there was a frenzy of activity publicly and privately. The next day, President Trump called local officials on the island, issued an emergency declaration and pledged that all federal resources would be directed to help.
But then for four days after that — as storm-ravaged Puerto Rico struggled for food and water amid the darkness of power outages — Trump and his top aides effectively went dark themselves.
Trump jetted to New Jersey that Thursday night to spend a long weekend at his private golf club there, save for a quick trip to Alabama for a political rally. Neither Trump nor any of his senior White House aides said a word publicly about the unfolding crisis.
Trump did hold a meeting at his golf club that Friday with half a dozen Cabinet officials — including Acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke, who oversees disaster response — but the gathering was held to discuss his new refugee travel ban, not the hurricane. Duke and Trump spoke briefly about Puerto Rico, but did not talk again until Tuesday, an administration official said.
“The Trump administration was slow off the mark,” said Rep. Darren Soto (D-Fla.), the first lawmaker of Puerto Rican descent elected by the state of Florida to Congress. “. . .We’ve invaded small countries faster than we’ve been helping American citizens in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.”
-Sec. Of State Tillerson (CEO of Exxon oil) was upset the Chad took the company to court to make them pay taxes
-Trump includes Chad on the ban list
-Chad stops helping us in Niger because of the ban
-A few days later, our soldiers are killed
-Trump tries to distract from all of this by starting a fight with the NFL

Guys - don't get caught slippin' - Halloween is upon us and it being on a Saturday this year means there's no excuse to no try to win your little local costume contest.
I'm on some shit that nobody is ready for but I'm willing to throw out some of my rejected ideas for anybody that's struggling with their imagination.
Luke Cage - Hero For Hire
this one is easy and cheap...
gay yellow shirt, gay jeggings, chain, afro, gay yellow legwarmers, golden tiara (all tarias are gay... no need to specify)
put all that gay shit together and somehow you can be the toughest motherfucker in comic books. too bad nobody will know who you are and they'll just think your lamar from revenge of the nerds.
Carboard box robot
Another cheap and easy one. Plus it's a classic.
Some boxes, some aluminum foil, some HVAC tubing (for the arms and legs), Duct tape
This one is a timeless retro classic but be sure to wear depends since the bathroom is out of the question unless you make a porthole like the enterprising gentlemen in the photo below. Also be on the lookout for @DWO since he might kick the shit out off you just of instinct.
This one is controversial and I don't recommend it.
Black grease paint. Black clothes. Lack of basic grammar skills.
White people: please don't even attempt to execute this costume unless you have at least one black friend. Even then it's risky but @eyerone might vouch for you if you cook him some fried chicken.
more to come. feel free to add your own ideas.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Strapped to a gurney, defiant cop-killer Torrey Twane McNabb raised both middle fingers and unleashed a profanity laden curse at the state of Alabama before falling unconscious and succumbing to the executioner's deadly cocktail of drugs.
McNabb, who had challenged the state's execution drug method, was put to death Thursday night for killing a police officer in 1997.
It was Alabama's fifth execution since January 2016 and took place almost exactly 20 years after McNabb shot and killed Montgomery Police Officer Anderson Gordon III.
McNabb expressed defiance shortly before the grim ritual began at 8:56 p.m. Thursday night, addressing family members through a glass window.
"Mom, sis, look at my eyes," he said. "I've got no tears in my eyes. I'm unafraid . . . to the state of Alabama, I hate you m-f-s. I hate you."
McNabb raised his middle fingers toward witnesses galleries as the execution began. He appeared to be breathing for the first 20 minutes of the execution and moved slightly.
At 9:17 p.m., McNabb raised his right arm and rolled his head in a grimace before falling back on the gurney. Witnesses in the room — including McNabb's two sisters and two attorneys — expressed concerns he was not unconscious.
He was pronounced dead at 9:38 p.m. after an execution that lasted approximately 35 minutes. Alabama Department of Corrections Commissioner Jeff Dunn said they followed proper procedures.
"I’m confident he was more than unconscious at that point," he said. "Involuntary movement is not uncommon. That’s how I would characterize it."
Gordon's family thanked the attorney general's office, the Montgomery Police Department, former Montgomery County District Attorney Ellen Brooks, current Montgomery District Attorney Daryl Bailey and Sarah Green of Victim's Services.
"Over 20 years ago, we lost a companion, a father, a brother, and a friend who only wanted to make a difference in his community," the family said in a statement. "'Brother,' as he was affectionately called, worked to make a difference in his community until his life was taken on Sept. 24, 1997."
McNabb, then 20, was fleeing a bail bondsman when he got into the accident that night. When Gordon pulled up to respond, McNabb approached his patrol car and fired at least four times at Gordon. The police officer, the father of a toddler, was pronounced dead at the scene.
On Friday, Brooks, who prosecuted McNabb, called it “a senseless, needless crime.”
“In a sense, (Gordon) was an innocent bystander,” she said. “It was so senseless.”
At his trial, McNabb said he had ingested a large amount of cocaine that day and “panicked” when he saw Gordon come up. He apologized to Gordon’s family from the witness stand and said, “I know I have caused them a lot of hurt.”
“I absolutely believe he was remorseful,” said Rhonda Brownstein, legal director of the Southern Poverty Law Center who was part of McNabb’s legal team in 1999.
The Gordon family statement said that while "the wounds of having a family member murdered can never be healed," they were "strong, and will continue to be resilient."
"Though this has been a difficult day for the Gordon family, we would also like to pray for the family of Torrey McNabb," the statement said.
McNabb refused his breakfast Wednesday and did not ask for a final meal. The inmate also asked that the prison chaplain not enter the death chamber with him; a chaplain was present but did not pray with McNabb. Alabama Department of Corrections spokesman Bob Horton said McNabb did not want "anything of a religious nature performed before or during his execution."
Staff conducted two consciousness tests on McNabb during the execution, one more than is common. A correctional officer in the room calls out the condemned inmate's name, opens one of his eyes and pinches his arm. Dunn did not say if there were any changes to the administration of drugs, but said the two consciousness checks were meant to "err on the side of caution."
The case got caught up in a legal fight over Alabama’s method of lethal injection. Officials first inject an inmate with midazolam, a sedative designed to render a person unconscious. After a consciousness check, the inmate is injected with rocuronium bromide, which paralyzes the muscles, and potassium chloride, which stops the heart.
Alabama has used the protocol in four executions conducted in the last 22 months. Three took place without visible incident. But Ronald Bert Smith, executed in December, gasped and coughed for 13 of the 34 minutes of his execution. Critics say midazolam cannot maintain unconsciousness in the face of a stressful event, such as one’s execution.
Earlier in the evening, the U.S. Supreme Court Thursday lifted a stay of execution against McNabb that had arisen amid questions about a pending lawsuit challenging the state's method of putting inmates to death. Justice Clarence Thomas wrote that the lower court failed to find that McNabb was likely to succeed in his challenge.
I watched this show on CNN called This is Life w/ Lisa Ling. This episode was about "Age of Consent" and teens getting labled as sex offenders for doing fairly normal teenage stuff.
This kid was 14yrs old. Crushing on another 14yr old girl.
He decided to txt her a dick pic.... No response
2hrs later the cops show up to his house. He takes responsibility for the dick pic.
Turns out because he himself is underage, he gets charged for distribution of child porn.
He gets put on probation, will need to register as a sex offender, needs to attend sex offender therapy sessions, cant go to malls or movie theaters, his parents even need to supervise him at grocery stores.
