Has Penthouse Got the Videos of the Chumph?

Back in the 90’s, in the midst of the Bill Clinton sex scandal and attempted impeachment, Larry Flynt the founder of Penthouse Magazine exposed a number of the right wing righteous hypocrites for what they were. Resulting in resignation or leaving office of a half dozen or so Repuglys. Penthouse put $1 million for copies of the Chumph Sex Tapes…And within 24 hours had 3 offers.

Did I say coming to a YouTube near you?

Penthouse may have proof of Trump’s ‘golden shower’ tryst at Moscow hotel

Adult magazine Penthouse has received three claims for its $1 million offer to anyone who could provide real tapes of President-elect Donald Trump’s alleged and unproven sexual escapades at the Ritz-Carlton in Moscow, the publication’s editor exclusively revealed to International Business Times Thursday.

Penthouse editor Raphie Aronowitz said the magazine isn’t conducting a “witch hunt,” but wants to prove whether the allegations against Trump are true. Aronowitz said the lucrative offer falls in line with the magazine’s well-established brand, though to his knowledge Penthouse has never made such an exorbitant offer before.

“If the story is real, which we don’t know if it is or not, it really kind of hits at the intersection between politics, scandal and sex, which as a brand both historically and currently is our sweet spot,” Aronowitz said in a phone interview.

He also said the advent and effect of “fake news” – articles containing false or inaccurate information spread by social media sites that many have credited with helping Trump win the Oval Office, including President Barack Obama – played a role in the offer.

“For us, this was the type of story that we wanted to jump all over. But at the same time there’s been so much floating around – as far as fake news stories – there have been so many people who have just been taking shots at President-elect Donald Trump because he’s an easy target, and we as a brand and as an informational source, we didn’t want to jump on the bandwagon,” Aronowitz said. “We wanted to make sure this story could be verified, that the murmurings of their being actual video documentation that corroborates the allegations, do exist. For us, this was a very real ask, which is just ‘Give us some facts, and let us share the real story with our readers and with the public.’”

Aronowitz’s comments fell in line with the statement released by Penthouse Global Media CEO Kelly Holland following the offer’s announcement Tuesday on Twitter. The magazine, best known for publishing pornography, offered $1 million for exclusive rights to videos proving the allegations against Trump.

Arnowitz said Penthouse, which has published controversial documents and interviews in the past, has not received physical tapes or video files but individuals have responded to the offer via email and its customer help line.

Should Penthouse receive a tape or file, Aronowitz said it will then turn it over to experts formerly affiliated with the Federal Bureau of Investigation – how they were affiliated Aronowitz would not explain – in order to authenticate it. Aronowitz said he hoped to see a video by the end of the week but that there is no set time frame or deadline.

Black Man Literally Gets Arrested for Walking Down the Street

UN-freaking believable. This sidewalks in this section of the road were closed while under repair. A cop pulls up and arrests a black man for walking along the white lane to get past the construction.

 

Video Shows Black Man Being Arrested For Apparently Walking In Street

The NAACP has since slammed the police officer’s actions as “dehumanizing and degrading.”

Cell phone video of a black man’s arrest is drawing outrage with footage showing the man being handcuffed after allegedly walking in the street where a sidewalk was under construction.

In the seven-minute video, posted to YouTube Wednesday, the man is first seen arguing with a white Edina, Minnesota officer who tightly holds the back of his jacket in an apparent attempt to prevent him from running away.

“You’re walking down the middle of the street,” the officer says in the video, as he appears to forcefully pull the man toward the center lane and around a parked car.

“I’m on the damn white line!” answers the man. “You can’t just put your hands on me like that!”

The woman filming the incident is repeatedly heard suggesting to the police officer that, instead of arresting the man, he show him where to walk.

“He’s scared, sir. It’s scary,” the woman calls out during the heated scene.“It’s because he’s black,” she adds, in a lower voice. The Minnesota NAACP identified the woman as Janet Rowles.

The city, responding to the video in a statement Friday, confirmed that one of two surrounding sidewalks were closed because of construction but said that the video only captured a portion of the incident….

“Watching that video and seeing a black man being manhandled and emasculated by Edina Police was not only painful and humiliating, it was a vivid reminder that blacks are still too-often seen as second class citizens in the State of Minnesota and in this nation,” stated Nekima Levy-Pounds, a civil rights attorney and president of the Minneapolis NAACP. “It is sad to say, but that man in the video could easily have been the next Philando Castile or Jamar Clark, two unarmed black men who were killed by police within the last year.”

Rowles, the woman who filmed the scene, also spoke out against the man’s treatment, which she called “overzealous.”

“There was absolutely no reason for the officer to stop him from walking. I easily passed him in my vehicle because he was hugging the right side next to the construction, literally walking on the white line that marks the shoulder,” she said in the NAACP’s release. “I have no interest in vilifying the police, but obviously I got out of my car in the first place because I perceive the pedestrian might not get treated fairly because of his ethnicity.”

In addition to asking for an apology, the NAACP has asked that an outside investigation be conducted into the incident and that the officer be suspended without pay.

The police department could not immediately be reached for comment Sunday; nor could the man whom the NAACP identified as the person arrested.

Wife’s Video of Keith Lamont Scott’s Killing Released

The whole video available on NBC shows the wife screaming at the officers not to shoot – that her husband has a brain injury …And that he does not have a gun.

The video is shaky and unclear – but raises some important questions…

Another Cop Murder of a Mentally Ill Black Man in Sacramento

Mentally ill man. With knife, and a gun invisible to everyone except the Cops. These Sacramento Cops are in no danger – and make no effort whatsoever to try and deescalate the situation or to bring the victim down by less lethal means.

 

The surveillance video obtained by The Bee shows Mann running from police as officers converge on him. They are still some distance away when he turns to face them and raises and lowers his arm three times. It’s not clear from the video what – if anything – he is holding. Two officers then fire a barrage of shots. Mann crumples to the ground. Officers approach him, and at least two of them appear to nudge him with their feet.

Witnesses said they called police after seeing Mann urinate on himself and tap at an imaginary keyboard on a residential street in North Sacramento. Witnesses also said he was tossing a knife in the air, catching it by the handle. The knife had a 4-inch blade, according to a police official.

When police arrived, a cruiser began following Mann as he made his way off the side street and onto Del Paso Boulevard.

Police were yelling at Mann to drop the knife, and Mann was yelling threats back at the officers, according to witnesses.

Mann then ran across Del Paso Boulevard, performing karate-type moves. More officers arrived, and Mann ran toward an “officer’s vehicle with a knife held above his head,” according to a police news release.

“The subject turned back towards them, armed with a knife. Fearing for their lives and the safety of the community, two officers discharged their firearms striking the man multiple times,” according to the news release.

Officers fired 18 rounds, hitting Mann 14 times, Somers said.

Sacramento cops kill mentally ill black man with 14 shots for ‘gesturing’ at them

The family of a mentally ill black man seeks justice after Sacramento police finally showed them video of officers gunning down 50-year-old Joseph Mann during a foot chase in July.

Mann’s family has been asking to see video evidence of the shooting captured by a surveillance cameras, and now that they’ve seen it — they have even more questions,reported KOVR-TV.

The videos show officers open fire on Mann after he stops running, apparently out of breath, and raises a knife toward them standing at least 10 feet away.

Police were called July 11 to North Sacramento, where two 911 callers reported that Mann had a knife and a gun and was acting erratically, although the second caller admitted she did not see the gun herself.

Investigators never found a gun after Mann was fatally shot during the confrontation.

Witnesses said they saw Mann urinate on himself and then begin tapping on an imaginary keyboard, and they called police after seeing him toss a 4-inch knife into the air and catch it by the handle, reported the Sacramento Bee.

A patrol car followed Mann down the street as officers ordered him to drop the knife, but they said he shouted threats at police and then performed karate-style moves.

Police said Mann then charged the patrol car with the knife held above his head, and officers, “fearing for their lives and the safety of the community,” fired 18 rounds at the man, striking him 14 times.

Mann’s family faulted police for failing to de-escalate the 11-minute encounter with a mentally ill suspect.

“For them to just get out they cars and start shooting my brother, you know, being judge, jury and God — it’s just not right,” said Robert Mann, the slain man’s brother.

The family’s attorney said dashboard camera video shows Mann was not as much of a threat to officers as police have said, and the surveillance video shows he was several feet away from the police who opened fire on him.

“He was gesturing and pointing,” said attorney John Burris. “He was not lunging or charging, so from a police point of view, they should not have used deadly force at that time. They were in a position of safety. They could have remained in a position of safety.”

Mann’s family wants the officers involved in the fatal shooting to be fired immediately and prosecuted.

They have filed a federal civil rights lawsuit and a claim against the city charging that officers “confronted and aggressively pursued” Mann before fatally shooting him.

Video Surfaces of NYPD Officers Shooting Unarmed Black Teen Trying to Surrender

Another one of those cases of absolutely over the top cops. First shooting at a kid running away, and then continuing to shoot when the suspect stops and raises his hands. Fortunately this one didn’t end in Murder by Cop.

New video reveals NYPD cops fired on unarmed black teen 16 times while he tried to surrender

Newly-released video undermines New York City police’s claim that a teenager was threatening them with a toy gun when they fired at him 16 times during a December 2013 encounter, the New York Daily News reported.

The footage shows Keston Charles, who was 15 years old at the time, running from officers, then limping, then putting his hands up with no sign of the BB gun he was reportedly carrying, which he allegedly took from a friend during a neighborhood fight and used to threaten another boy.

NYPD Officers continue to fire, hitting Charles twice as he stands with his hands up attempting to surrender

Charles served 18 months of probation in connection with the incident, and is reportedly trying to obtain his GED.

“I was scared for my life. I was trying to get away,” Charles said of the encounter. “I never been shot at before.”

Charles was hit three times — twice while surrendering at the front door of his apartment building in Brooklyn. Charles is now suing Officer Jonathan Rivera over the incident.

An attorney for the city of New York, Elissa Jacobs, said that Charles “did not put his hands up to surrender before any round of shots,” a statement apparently contradicted by the footage. According to court documents, officials said since Charles was only hit three times, it demonstrated “how fast he continued to move and that the threat to public safety had not been abated.”

A Year Later Bad Cops in Alameda, Ca. Charged With Felonies

Took a while, and a video seen around the world – but San Francisco authorities have finally decided to some down hard on two bad cops.

Deputies charged in San Francisco beating caught on video

Two Alameda County sheriff’s deputies have been charged with multiple felonies after video showed them repeatedly hitting a suspected car thief during an arrest in San Francisco last year, officials said Tuesday.

The alleyway beating of the suspect, Stanislav Petrov, was caught on surveillance video (Note: The video, above, is disturbing and contains several shouted obscenities) and released on YouTube in November by the San Francisco public defender’s office, which said it received the footage from someone who operates a security camera in the area.

The grainy footage shows two Alameda County sheriff’s deputies chasing a man on foot. As the man slows, one officer tackles him and punches him twice. The second officer arrives and starts hitting Petrov with his baton. Soon both officers can be seen hitting Petrov with their batons.

Sometimes Petrov can be seen lying on the ground and other times on his knees. Once the officers begin striking him, he does not appear to be resisting.

“Policing that violates our constitutional rights damages the reputation of every person that wears the uniform, and it damages the public’s perception of those that are sworn to serve,” San Francisco Dist. Atty. George Gascon said in a statement announcing the charges. “When officers take the law into their own hands, they undermine the moral authority of the entire criminal justice system.”

The deputies, Luis Santamaria and Paul Wieber, are 14- and three-year veterans of the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office, respectively, officials said. They are charged with assault under the color of authority, battery with serious bodily injury and assault with a deadly weapon. They’re expected to surrender by Wednesday and be held in lieu of $140,000 bail….Read the Rest...

Here Kitty!

Got to get me one of these. Some years ago I had a very large Persian Cat which at 20 lbs, thoroughly enjoyed terrorizing the neighborhood’s little yippie-yappie dogs. The woman who took the below video was just walking along a boardwalk through a Florida Park, when…

Heeeeello Kitty!

Had a similar experience some years ago hunting in West Virginia off a logging trail deep in the mountains near the Kentucky Border. Walked into a little clearing and looked up, and there was a Mountain Lion (Puma) or “Florida Panther” just sitting in the crook of a tree looking down at me about 25 feet away. Made a slow backwards retreat, having no desire whatsoever to shoot a beautiful and endangered animal, or to tempt him to charge. Got the old blood pressure going though. I have seen a number of Bobcats in the wild, which are far smaller, as well as the Western Cougar. There is evidence that Jaguars and Ocelots are moving back into the US along the border with Mexico.
