As we reported earlier, 50 Cent had a run in with a Mack Truck on the Long island expressway and his SUV won! Fif weighed in stating exactly what happened to MTV News,
“We spun off into the rail. We would’ve flipped if it was a regular truck, but the truck weighs over a ton because it has additional stuff in it, It did more damage to the Mack Truck than it did to my truck, ’cause I got a level six; it’s a bulletproof vehicle. It’s the same standard as what they’re moving Obama around in.”
“We were just riding down the LIE and a Mack Truck – he said he lost control of the vehicle later to police officers because his load shifted. He tried to brake, his load shifted, and he lost control and he ran into the back of the truck.”
After the accident there was internet buzz suggesting that Fifty arraigned the whole thing as hype for his new album. These rumors, Fifty dismissed with simple common sense (and math)
“Trust me, I have enough money to not hit myself with a Mack Truck to try to get a few dollars. What’s the thought process on this? It makes no sense to me.”
If you are wondering how much a bullet proof SUV would cost, I did a little shopping for you.
How about a 2011 Cadillac Escalade with only 500 miles on it.
$350,000. BTW – that’s a level 7. Able to withstand an AK-47 and M-16. Here are some additional features
• (4) Door partially operable windows
• Electric shocking door handles
• Flashing front strobe lights
• 4-Camera DVR security system
• Overlap protection
• Radiator protection
Here are some photos:
If you were shot 9 times, I’m pretty sure this is how you would roll to!Read more...
Another celebrity, another life saved. It’s almost like these celebs are super heroes, Right??
Wrong. This time it’s Jennifer Lawrence and no she wasn’t a superhero. She did what any of us would have done in a similar situation. The b**ch alled 911 and stood there and looked helpless.
At about 6:41 PM a 911 call was received when a woman collapsed outside Jennifer Lawrence’s Santa Monica apartment.
Sergeant Richard Lewis of the Santa Monica Police breaks it down for us,
“Miss Lawrence and several others waited beside the female until the police and paramedics arrived. It was not serious and the female will be okay. Her name is not being released because of her age.”
Wait there has to be more right? No there really isn’t. She’s got a sweet dog?
Not only is everyone making a big deal about this, including me (I’m the one that decided to write about this today), but look how many police officers have showed up. REALLY? You would think there was donut powder sprinkled on top of the body. Six officers standing trying to get a peek and Kandiss’ in her spandex and tight top, and one paramedic doing work. Must not be a lot going on in Santa Monica.
Basically the story headline should read, “Black girl in Daisy Dukes, passes out on Jennifer Lawrence’s lawn”. That’s a lot more accurate. Apparently the woman’s injuries were minor and she did not need to be hospitalized.Read more...
A full on police investigation has been triggered after TMZ posted pictures of Nadya Suleman’s La Habra, CA home.
The whole incident started when Suleman’s hairstylist filed a complaint with the cops that her 14 children were living in horrendous conditions. She also said that there were obvious signs of child neglect.
Orange County DCFS (Dept of Children and Family Services) along with three police officers when to Suleman’s house to investigate, this resulted in the photos that you see.
At first glace of the photos you think, this is a single mom with 14 children. Things get a little messy at times. But a closer look, reveals this is much more then messy, this is just down right filthy. There is a difference.
First of all, Are the kids really taking a dump outside on their potties? Could it be because there is only one working bathroom in the entire house. That in of itself is an issue. We have two bathrooms for two people in my house and it’s a problem.
In the photo of what appears to be Suleman’s back with her hair done. If you look out to the right, she has a door locked with a chair. Guess what? The freakin kids are locked in there!!
Then there’s another picture that actually looks right out of a scene from hoarders. It’s just the filthiest room ever.
I see what the hair dresser was talking about. She actually talked to TMZ telling them,
“The kids are in desperate need of help, and I tried to help and she’s not open to anyone helping her,”
She was doubly appalled because Nadya’s hair-do cost $500 bucks.
After nearly a one and a half hour investigation DCFS said the children were not in any danger.
NADYA DID HAVE HELP
Dr. Drew and others pitched in and purchased her a year of child care services and one year of cleaning supplies although you can’t tell. I think mentally she has just had it. This is definitely a case of making your own bed and having to lie in it.
I’m not sure how they made that conclusion but they did. Let’s just hope that they are right. It would be awful for something to happen to the kids because not only is Suleman negligent but now the State has some skin the game as well. They can be held accountable if something goe
s terribly wrong. Remember, the kids are the innocent ones, they didn’t ask to be here and they need protecting.

Tyler Perry is one of the Richest Black men in the country, and when he’s stopped and is given a hard time by the cops then there is almost no hope. In Perry’s account, the scariest part is when he reaches in the car. That is a no no, if you are any color, but especially if you are a black man. Not to mention a 6ft 5 blackman.
In Perry’s mind, I’m sure he was driving something super luxury, was dressed impeccably and he should have just gotten a ticket as a worse case. If it wasn’t for another black cop arriving, who knows what would have happened.
Here is Tyler Perry’s account of the actual events
A few days before President Obama was supposed to speak at my studio, I was leaving the studio, headed to the airport. Most times when I leave the studio I have an unmarked escort. Other times I constantly check in my rearview mirror to be sure that I’m not being followed. It’s a safety precaution that my security team taught me. As I got to an intersection, I made a left turn from the right lane and was pulled over by two police officers. I pulled the car over and put it in park. Then, I let the window down and sat in the car waiting for the officer. The officer came up to the driver’s door and said that I made an illegal turn. I said, “I signaled to get into the turning lane, then made the turn because I have to be sure I’m not being followed.” He said, “why do you think someone would be following you?”
Before I could answer him, I heard a hard banging coming from the passenger window. I had never been in this position before so I asked the officer who was at my window what was going on and why is someone banging on the window like that. He said, “let your window down, let your window down. Your windows are tinted.” As I let down the passenger window, there was another officer standing on the passenger side of the car. He said, “what is wrong with you?” The other officer said to him, “he thinks he’s being followed.” Then, the second officer said, “why do you think someone is following you? What is wrong with you?”
Before I could answer the officer on the passenger side, the one on the driver’s side had reached into the car and started pulling on the switch that turns the car on and off, saying, “put your foot on the brake, put your foot on the brake!” I was so confused as to what he was doing, or what he thought he was doing. It looked like he was trying to pull the switch out of the dashboard. I finally realized that he thought that switch was the key, so I told him that it wasn’t the key he was grabbing. I reached down into the cup holder to get the key, not realizing that the key had a black leather strap on it. As I grabbed it they both tensed up and I dropped it as I heard my mother’s voice from when I was a little boy.
My mother would always say to me, “if you get stopped by the police, especially if they are white policemen, you say ‘yes sir’ and ‘no sir’, and if they want to take you in, you go with them. Don’t resist, you hear me? Don’t make any quick moves, don’t run, you just go.” My mother was born in 1945 into a segregated hotbed town in rural Louisiana. She had known of many colored men at the time who were lynched and never heard from again. Since I was her only son for ten years, growing up she was so worried about me. It wasn’t until after I heard her voice that I realized that both of these officers were white.
The officer on the driver’s side continued to badger me, “why do you think someone is following you?” I then said, “I think you guys need to just write the ticket and do whatever you need to do.” It was so hostile. I was so confused. It was happening so fast that I could easily see how this situation could get out of hand very quickly. I didn’t feel safe at all. But one officer stopped his questioning and said, “we may not let you go. You think you’re being followed, what’s wrong with you?” At this point, I told him that I wanted to get out of the car. I wanted the passersby to see what was happening.
As I stepped out of the car another officer pulled up in front of my car. This officer was a black guy. He took one look at me and had that “Oh No” look on his face. He immediately took both officers to the back of my car and spoke to them in a hushed tone. After that, one of the officers stayed near his car while one came back, very apologetic.
I said all of that to say this: do you see how quickly this could have turned for the worse?
Now I know that there are many great officers, patrolmen and security guys out there. I am aware of that. But although we have made significant strides with racial profiling in this country, the world needs to know that we are still being racially profiled, and until this situation has improved greatly, I’m not sure how a murder in Florida can be protected by a “stand your ground law.”
And in another case that I have been screaming at the top of my lungs about, also in Florida, is the case of Terrance Williams and Felipe Santos, a young black man and a young Mexican man. Eight years ago, in Naples, FL, they were both put in the back of Deputy Steve Calkins’ police car and never heard from again.
They were never arrested, never brought to jail. They were put into the back of Deputy Calkins’ car and never heard from again. And to this day Deputy Steve Calkins is a free man.
I guess it’s time to march in Naples now.
RACIAL PROFILING SHOULD BE A HATE CRIME INVESTIGATED BY THE FBI!!!
That way local government can’t make the decision on whether or not these people get punished.
