Grim Sleeper Serial Killer, Convicted

Black serial killers are rarer than white. About 90% of serial killers in the US are white males. It is unclear whether that is because black killers tend to kill fellow blacks, and thus go unnoticed by the police…Or if there are sociological reasons. In this case, the killer, Lonnie Franklin probably killed dozens more than he was convicted for.

Lonnie David Franklin Jr. Guilty For All 10 ‘Grim Sleeper’ Killings Of Women

Lonnie David Franklin Jr. killed nine women and a teen girl in a Los Angeles crime spree dating back 30 years.

A former sanitation worker accused of being the “GrimSleeper“ serial killer was found guilty of murder on Thursday for the slayings of nine women and a teenage girl in a Los Angeles crime spree dating back 30 years.

The Superior Court jury reached its verdict on all 10 counts of murder against the defendant, Lonnie David Franklin Jr., 63, after deliberating just over a day, capping a trial that stretched over more than 11 weeks.

Franklin, who could face the death penalty, also was convicted of attempted murder for an attack on an 11th victim who survived being shot, raped, pushed out of a car and left for dead in 1988.

Judge Kathleen Kennedy instructed jurors to return to the courtroom on May 12 for the start of the trial’s penalty phase.

Franklin, whose attorney sought to raise questions about DNA evidence presented during the trial, was convicted of fatally shooting or strangling seven victims between August 1985 and September 1988, and three others between March 2002 and January 2007.

The gap of more than 13 years between the two spates of murders earned the killer the “GrimSleeper“ moniker. Since his March 2011 indictment, police said they had gathered evidence linking Franklin to at least six more slayings, some of which took place during the previously presumed lapse in killings.

Franklin, who sat impassively in court as the verdicts were read on Thursday, has been in custody since his arrest in July 2010.

West Point Investigates Women Cadets for “Making BLM Sign”

On the list of all time stupids is some of the Military leadership. A group of female Cadets recently posed for a group picture. Apparently some right-wing racist crapjob noticed the girls were holding up their fists. Oh My! They must be revolutionaries!

Army investigates female cadets for alleged Black Lives Matter gesture in picture

Thee US Military Academy is investigating allegations that a group of black female cadets were making a political gesture in a picture that has reportedly drawn criticism, the Army Times reported.

According to the Times, several readers passed along the picture, which shows the women with their fists raised.

Critics of the picture are accusing the women of making a gesture of solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, which would constitute a violation of Department of Defense Directive 1344.10, which cautions service members against taking part in “partisan political activity” while in uniform.

Lt. Col. Christopher Kasker, the public affairs director for West Point, said in a statement that the academy “can confirm that the cadets in this photo are members of the U.S. Military Academy’s Class of 2016. Academy officials are conducting an inquiry into the matter.”

NO…This is what it looks like azzwipes!

Orange County Weekly Bashes Trump

The OC Weekly's May 5 cover (Illustration by Lalo Alcaraz, Design by Dustin Ames/OC Weekly)

Somebody get that man a cigarette!

Orange County newspaper trolls Trump’s nasty myths about Mexicans with this perfect cover

Orange County’s alternative paper, or “infernal rag,” as its chief editor calls it, went blue with its campaign coverage on Thursday.

The OC Weekly’s edition this week features a cartoon of a nude Donald Trump in a compromised position with a Democratic donkey on his back. The GOP front runner says, “It’s yuuuge!”

“For more than a year, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee has peddled all sorts of nasty myths against Mexicans, from painting undocumented immigrants as rapists and Typhoid Marias to insisting a massive wall on the U.S.-Mexico border will make America great again,” writes OC Weekly editor-in-chief Gustavo Arellano.

Arellano, who pens the paper’s column ¡Ask a Mexican!  and also writes for the animated series Bordertown, explained that the cover plays off yet another racist stereotype — the “fevered” fantasy cooked up by white Americans that “donkey shows,” in which a donkey and female prostitute copulate in front of a paying audience, are the norm in border towns like Tijuana.

“His campaign has grown as grotesque as a donkey show, those Tijuana spectacles that exist only in the fevered minds of gabachos, and it made a stop in Costa Mesa last week, with Trump the featured star and the Weekly documenting every scream, punch and lie,” Arellano wrote. “So it’s also only fitting legendary cartoonista Lalo Alcaraz capture the moment, you know?”

Arellano credits the Weekly’s sister publication, the Riverfront Times, for the idea. In 2012, that paper featured former Missouri Congressman Todd Akin getting mounted by the Democratic donkey. Akin became infamous for comments about the female body not being able to conceive if rape is “legitimate.”

“Besides,” Arellano writes, “Democrats violating Trump from behind is what he can expect when he faces Hillary Clinton come November. Enjoy our package, and don’t forget to register to vote!”

Insane Boat!

Was involved in fast boats years ago with having part of a 37′ cigarette style monohull, which could really pick ’em up and put ’em down in terms of the day. Running a pair of supercharged, blueprinted and tuned what started as Mopar 440 Cubic inch engines, in full throat producing over 1400 HP, she would do something just over 100 MPH. 100 MPH on the water feels like 200 MPH on land. That was the early days of this style of boating.

Miami was the epicenter of fast boats, and technology was being driven by the drug business in the 80’s, who for a while used this type of boat for smuggling Cocaine. Since the 80’s boats have become progressively faster.

Mo-Mo’s – my favorite part of fast boats

 1996 Ocean Express 39 Cat twin 940 HP Arneson #8 drives

Since the introduction of the Maxi-Cat in about 2000, things have gotten absolutely insane, with commercially available sports boats doing over 180 MPH. And no – you don’t want to know the price…The cost of the boat generally isn’t the issue. These puppies drink something on the order of 2-6 Gallons of fuel…Per minute. And like racing cars, the racing boats drink something far more expensive than that you can get at your local Exxon. You also may want to consider hiring a full time pair of mechanics to maintain it. This one below  has 400 Gallon tanks…Should last about 2 hours before you have to fill it again.

“A boat is a hole in the water you throw money in”.

After Takeover of Internet, Cats Take Over Subway Station

There is a rapidly rising groundswell both in the US and Europe against increasingly intrusive and ubiquitous advertising on every inch of out Internet and real world. On the Internet, rejection of intrusive ads, and popups has resulted in rapidly increasing numbers of people installing Ad Blocker type software to cut down the noise level. Ads, simply have become too intrusive, are consuming megabits you pay for, and are causing content to load slowly.

Seems the folks in London, who have an extensive Subway and Trains System have decided to make a point and protest!

New campaign looks to replace London subway ads with cat photos

A group in London has a new humorous solution to mitigating consumer-focused advertisements in a “Tube” or subway station in London. The Citizens Advertising Takeover Service organization is launching a new crowd sourcing campaign that seeks to replace every single ad in an undisclosed London Tube station with pictures of cats.

The new campaign is hosted by Kickstarter and looks to raise $33,000 in order to buy out every ad slot in an unspecified London Tube station.

According to the organization’s online fundraising page, the main reason behind the unordinary proposition is because “it would look amazing” and is a way to mitigate consumer-focused ads that are commonly displayed on rail commuter systems.

“It’s exhausting being asked to buy stuff all the time,” the description says.

According to the organization, if a stuffiest amount of money is raised to purchase all advertising slots, the organization will be allowed to transition an entire station “into a roaring festival of cats,” the description adds.

Laugh if you will – however the online fundraiser has generated more than $6,500 in donations from more than 220 supporters. The pledge drive ends May 21.

The organization hosting the campaign is composed of a group of “friends and cat lovers from London,” the fundraising page says.

DOJ Says NC Religious Freedom (Bathroom Law) Is Unconstiutional

DOJ has rejected the North Carolina anti-LGBT Law, and given the State 2 days to comply.

If the State does not comply, the Federal Government may immediately begin cutting off Federal funding, the first stage of which would be to cut off the $4.5 billion North Carolina gets in Educational money from the Federal Government. Besides that, the state would lose billions in Transportation funding, as well as funding from  Labor, Housing and Urban Development, and Health and Human Services.

Lastly Military spending:

  1. Nearly 110,000 active duty military personnel were assigned to units in North Carolina as of March 31, 2013
  2. Department of Defense contracting in FY 2012 totaled $3.4 billion
  3. The military supports 540,000 jobs in North Carolina, $30 billion in state personal income, and $48 billion in gross state product.
  4. 340,000 of military-supported jobs occur in the private sector.

This shidt is getting ready to hurt!

North Carolina LGBT law violates the Civil Rights Act, feds say

North Carolina’s controversial House Bill 2 breaks civil rights laws banning workplace discrimination based on sex, U.S. Justice Department officials said Wednesday.

The feds alerted Gov. Pat McCrory he has until Monday to address the violation of the U.S. Civil Rights Act “by confirming that the State will not comply with or implement HB2,” according to a letter obtained by The Charlotte Observer. DOJ officials said HB 2 is illegal under both the law’s workplace discrimination statutes and Title IX, which forbids discrimination in education based on gender.

The state law voided a Charlotte municipal ordinance allowing transgender people to use the restroom of the gender they identify with and prohibited other cities and counties from passing their own anti-discrimination statutes. HB 2 also restricts transgender people to the public bathrooms of the gender on their birth certificates. Protests by activists and businesses followed passage of the bill in March.

“The State is engaging in a pattern or practice of discrimination against transgender state employees and both you, in your official capacity, and the State are engaging in a pattern or practice of resistance,” toward their civil rights, said the letter from DOJ Civil Rights Division principal deputy attorney general Vanita Gupta. The finding places hundreds of millions of dollars in federal education funds in jeopardy.
