  2. Ray Rice Filed Wrongful Termination Grievance Against The Ravens

    Leave a Comment


    It is now being reported that Ray Rice has not only appealed his indefinite suspension by the NFL, but the former Ravens running back has also filed a wrongful termination grievance against his old team.

    Rice may have a case because the collective bargaining agreement states that a player should only be punished once, but his suspension was extended and his contract was terminated after it was already decided that he would be suspended for two games.

    A decision will be made on his appeal in early November. What do you think about this? Were the Ravens wrong for terminating his contract after the video was released?

    Shonda Rhimes decided to address people who criticize the gay sex scenes in her show after someone on twitter complained to her about it being too much.

    The person tweeted to Rhimes “The gay scenes in scandal and how to get away with murder are too much. There is no point and they add nothing to the plot.”

    Shonda responded to the critic in a series of tweets stating:

    “There are no GAY scenes. There are scenes with people in them.”

    “If you are suddenly discovering that Shondaland shows have scenes involving people who are gay, you are LATE TO THE PARTY.”

    “If u use the phrase ‘gay scenes,’ u are not only LATE to the party but also NOT INVITED to the party. Bye Felicia. #oneLOVE”

    So what do you think? Is it too much or are the critics just late to the party?

    On Tuesday morning, Rachel Kohnen went into labor so she and her husband hopped in the car and sped off to the hospital. A cop then spotted them going 85 mph in a 55 mph and attempted to pull them over but Rachel ordered her husband to keep going because she felt like the baby was coming. She also tried calling 911 to explain the situation, but the dispatcher couldn’t understand her because she was screaming from the contractions.

    Because Rachel and her husband would not stop, the officer called for back up and threw down spikes that stopped the couple. Cops then approached the vehicle and pulled the couple from the car while holding them at gunpoint until they realized Rachel was in labor. They then put their weapons away and gave the pregnant woman a police escort to the hospital.

    The baby was born an hour later and is in good health. Check out the couple explaining what happened below.

  8. Another Witness In Mike Brown Shooting Comes Forward

    1 Comment


    A new witness of the Mike Brown shooting agreed to do an interview with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch after testifying before the grand jury. In the interview, the witness states that he saw the entire incident from start to finish and called it “down outright murder.” Check out the Post-Dispatch’s account of the interview below.

    The witness said he saw Wilson’s police SUV stop near Brown and Johnson as they were walking in the middle of Canfield Drive. He said he heard Wilson say something to them, but not what. He said Wilson drove past them, then backed up. The witness said he had been on the right side of the police SUV and did not have a clear view of what happened on the opposite, driver’s side. “There was a tussle going on,” he said, adding that he believes he saw Wilson’s hat fly off.

    He then heard a shot and saw Brown run, followed by Wilson. He said Wilson aimed his handgun at Brown and yelled: “Stop! Stop! Stop!”

    The witness said Brown did stop, mumbled something he could not clearly hear and took a step toward Wilson.

    “When he stepped foot on that street, the officer told him to stop again, and he fired three shots,” the witness recalled. “When he (Brown) got hit, he staggered like, ‘Oh,’ and his body moved. Then he looked down.

    “His hands were up like this (he gestures with arms out to the side and palms upward), and he was looking at the officer and was coming toward him trying to keep his feet and stand up. The officer took a few steps back and yelled, ‘Stop,’ again, and Michael was trying to stay on his feet.

    “He was 20 to 25 feet from officer, and after he started staggering, he (Wilson) let off four more rounds. As he was firing those last rounds, Michael was on his way down. We were thinking, ‘Oh my God, oh my God, brother, stop, stop.’ He was already on his way down when he fired those last shots.”

    The witness said Wilson didn’t have to kill Brown. “It went from zero to 100 like that, in the blink of an eye. … What transpired to us, in my eyesight, was murder. Down outright murder.”

  9. Ebola: Nurse Flies Knowing She May Be Infected WTF?

    1 Comment


    Amber Vinson, a nurse who treated Thomas Duncan in Dallas has tested postive for the Ebola infection.

    After treating Duncan, Vinson had a temperature of 99.5 and still boarded a plane. She is now receiving backlash because all health care workers who came in contact with Duncan were asked to stay home for 21 days, but she flew to another city anyway knowing that she was feeling ill.

    There were 132 other passengers who were on the same plane as here, but The CDC is stating that they should not worry because she did not vomit or bleed.

    Nurse Vinson is currently in stable condition, but still feeling very ill.
