I’m not buyin’ it…

16-year old drunk driver Ethan Couch killed four people. He was sentenced to probation rather than prison after his lawyer argued he was a victim of “affluenza”; the idea being his wealthy parents had so completely indulged his prior bad behavior, he was incapable of taking responsibility for his actions. In other words, the “spoiled brat”defense. Now, Couch may have to mount a new defense. He is the focus of a new legal effort. Ed Lavandera has the latest.
Anderson discussed all this with former federal prosecutor Sunny Hostin and criminal defense attorney Mark Geragos.

What!!??!! Baby Daddy Matthew Knowles is delinquent on his child support for his lil love-child, Nixon ???
First thing this morning on the news was this. And the fact that he has quietly remarried. (Who is this idiot? The idiot is former model Gena Charmaine Avery. The story I read said they were engaged for a year and a half before marrying on June 30 here in Houston. Matt moves fast, doesn’t he?
Now it is alleged that he missed two of his $12,000 child support payments to Alexsandra Wright -another booty-call. This girl says her finances are so bad she can even keep her lil man in school and has had to take him out of the exclusive school he was attending. Really??
Who can’t make it on $12,000 a month.? .
I’m jus’ sayin’
That’s all folks.
On the Bookshelf:
Interesting book indeed.
How the Other Half Lives: Studies among the Tenements of New York, written in 1890 was a work in photojournalism by Jacob Riis. This work showed the awful conditions people were living in the slums of New York in the 1880′s. This was how they exposed the conditions to the upper crust of that day.
A horde of dirty children play about the dripping hydrant, the only thing in the alley that thinks enough of its chance to make the most of it: it is the best it can do. These are the children of the tenements, the growing generation of the slums; this their home. From the great highway overhead, along which throbs the life-tide of two great cities, one might drop a pebble into half a dozen such alleys.
I find it an interesting read because most of these people were immigrants, the author himself a Danish immigrant who lived on the Lower East Side of Manhattan a mecca for the rich then and still even today.
Reading this book is a humbling experience and I don’t have two nickels to rub together that don’t belong to some bill collector, so I can only imagine how the ‘monied’ may feel…
I can’t believe they killed off Brian!
Brian Griffin, a white Labrador who had lived with the Griffins on “Family Guy” for 11 years, died on Sunday in front of the Griffin home on Spooner Street. He was 8. Or 56 in people years. They say he was run over by a car. Stewie tried to save him but to no avail.
Brian was replace by a Italian-American pooch named Vinnie (I haven’t seen him but I’m sure he looks suspiciously like Brian…) who talks like a Soprano.
Brian was a prolific dog who wrote novels; Brown University-educated, born to father Biscuit and mother Coco, directed porn movies; spoke Spanish, French, and Tagalog; and was a member of MENSA. He was an Iraq War veteran and one-time police dog, served with the Peace Corps, and was a colorful character who enjoyed women, wine (or rather, a perfectly concocted dry martini), and the occasional recreational refreshment (okay, he was a recovering coke addict). (YAHOO TV)
Brian did have the chance to say goodbye to his family, telling them, “You’ve given me a wonderful life. I love you all.”
Pass the Kleenex….
I’m not happy with this. I don’t like Vinnie already and how can he be greater than Brian? I will be watching Family Guy to see how they pull this off.
Folks, this is David Adam Pate. He’s 24 years old and was just arrested for beating his friend to death and leavin’ his body out in public. That is extraordinary in itself but I was wondering what possessed him (or do I have my answer over his left brow) to fork his tongue and tat his face (includin’ “974″ — allegedly the sign of street gang Gangster Disciple)-like this?
Maybe he was channelin’ Lil Wayne…
They got some bad drugs over there in South Carolina.
So now we’re back to Georgy- Porgy again. Arrested. This time for thrashin’ his girlfriend Samantha Scheibe (who probably was a gold-diggin’ star-phucker anyway).
Now where they do this at? The guy tried to choke her out a week ago but she didn’t call the people to come get him? This time he pointed a shotgun at her (just like he did Trayvon) unprovoked, smashed a coffee table and pushed her out of the house, and threatened to kill himself. All this after she asked him to leave after an argument.
“The girlfriend told deputies the ordeal started with a verbal argument and that she asked Zimmerman to leave the house. Her account in the arrest report says he began packing his belongings, including a shotgun and an assault rifle. She says she began putting his things in the living room and outside the house, and he became upset. At that point, the report said, he took the shotgun out of its case. Zimmerman told his girlfriend to leave and smashed a pair of her sunglasses as she walked toward the front door, the report said. Scheibe told deputies he pushed her out of the house when she got close to the door.
“You point your gun at my fricking face,” Scheibe is heard telling Zimmerman on a 911 call. “Get out of my house. Do not push me out of my house. Please get out of my house.” Seconds later, she told the dispatcher, “You kidding me? He pushed me out of my house and locked me out. … He knows how to do this. He knows how to play this game.”
Moments later, Zimmerman called 911 from inside the house to tell his side of the story.
Look at what a punk he is: He called the police too and said she broke the table and he didn’t point any guns. And she’s supposed to be pregnant. Ewww…!
Yet he was released on $9G’s bail (he posted it!) and allowed to run loose again, smiling all the way…
After the hearing, Zimmerman’s public defenders(ambulance chasers looking for their 15-minutes) said he did not seem to be suicidal and expressed confidence he would be acquitted of any wrongdoing in Monday’s domestic dispute (how long do they think this creeps luck is goin’ to run???)
Lets hope the next time he shows his azz (and he will) they throw him under the jail. So far he’s been ordered to stay away from the Star Phucker and not have any guns or ammunition, and stay in Florida. He’s been charged with aggravated assault, a third-degree felony punishable by up to five years in prison. He’s also been charged with battery and criminal mischief, both misdemeanors. His arraignment was set for Jan. 7. Keep it up and he will make it into the jailhouse.
He still has civil rights charges pertaining to Trayvon Martin pending…
