Black School Principle Suspended, Arrested for Locking 5 Year Old Girl in Closet as Punishment

SHAFEEQ SAYID SHAMSID-DEEN. SCHOOL PRINCIPLE CHARGED WITH TWO FELONIES.

According to the Associated Press via NOLA, Shafeeq turned himself in to police on Friday.

Can we get an amateur lawyer to defend a black man? Negro children need discipline. Locking a kid in a school broom closet doesn’t seem so bad to me.

New York Post

The principal of a charter school in Louisiana is wanted by police after they say he locked a 5-year-old girl inside a “nasty and gross” school closet crawling with spiders and roaches.

Shafeeq Sayid Shamsid-Deen, 31, has been suspended from Laurel Oaks Charter School in Baton Rouge and is expected to be arrested on charges of cruelty to a juvenile — a felony — and false imprisonment for locking the young student in the closet on Aug. 22, according to an arrest warrant issued Monday obtained by WBRZ.

Three teachers found the little girl after hearing her screams and tracking her to the cafeteria broom closet — where she was locked in from the outside, the station reported.

The child told police that Shamsid-Deen had earlier told her to “go into the closet with the spiders,” and warned that he would turn the lights off if she screamed. She said she was trapped inside the foul-smelling closet for an unspecified amount of time as “spiders and roaches” crawled on her, according to The Advocate.

The girl said Shamsid-Deen ordered her to go inside the closet “when she is bad,” the warrant reads. But it was unclear if she had ever been locked in the closet before.

The incident occurred on just the 12th day of the new school year and one of the teachers reported that the girl was “weeping hysterically” when she was found. Equipment like paint and other supplies were inside the closet, which also contained a small chair.

Shamsid-Deen told one of the teachers who complained about the punishment that the charter school will “work to make sure we have a proper time-out area for scholars to reset in the cafeteria,” according to the warrant.

Police told the Advocate that Shamsid-Deen had been in touch with the department via his attorney, but he had not surrendered to authorities as of late Wednesday. Calls seeking comment from Baton Rouge Police Sgt. Don Coppola were not immediately returned Thursday.

School officials, meanwhile, confirmed in a statement that Shamsid-Deen was suspended.

“Laurel Oaks Charter School is committed to the safety and well being of all students,” the statement reads. “Any action that would constitute a crime or result in neglect of a child has never been the policy at Laurel Oaks Charter School and is currently not the policy.”

School officials, under state law, are required to fire Shasmid-Deen if he’s convicted or pleads no contest to the charges he faces, according to The Advocate.

Law enforcement is setting up an incentive for schools to ignore bad behavior by children. Punching a kid is obviously a crime, but putting one in a closet seems reasonable to me.

But I’m the guy who favors corporal punishment in school.

“Pharma Bro” Martin Shkreli Jailed for Putting $5,000 Bounty on Lock of Hillary Clinton’s Hair

There’s a significant amount of debate about whether the much hated “Pharma Bro” Martin Shkreli is a Jew. His Wikipedia page says he’s Albanian/Croat and was raised a Catholic.

He’s the guy who achieved fame (or infamy) for jacking up the price of a pharmaceutical drug by some enormous percentage.

Wikipedia

In September 2015, Shkreli received widespread criticism when Turing obtained the manufacturing license for the antiparasitic drug Daraprim and raised its price by a factor of 56 (from US$13.5 to US$750 per pill), leading him to be referred to as “the most hated man in America” and “pharma bro”.[10][11][12][13][14][15]

In December 2015, Shkreli was arrested by the FBI after being indicted on federal charges of securities fraud. He subsequently resigned as CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals and was replaced by the company’s board chairman, Ron Tilles.[16][17][18] Shkreli was convicted of two counts of securities fraud and one count of conspiring to commit securities fraud in August 2017.[2]

Shkreli is in the news now because of some silliness about wanting a hair from Hillary Clinton. Why he wanted a witch’s hair isn’t clear to me.

CNN Money

Martin Shkreli is heading to jail.

A federal judge Wednesday revoked the former pharmaceutical exec’s bail after he offered $5,000 to anyone who could grab a strand of Hillary Clinton’s hair.

Judge Kiyo Matsumoto said Shkreli, who was convicted of fraud in August and is awaiting sentencing, has “demonstrated that he has posed a real danger.”

In a Facebook post last week, Shkreli promoted a conspiracy about the Clinton Foundation and said he would pay any person who could procure a lock of hair from the former presidential candidate.

Prosecutors said the post reflected “an escalating pattern of threats and harassment,” adding that it had triggered an investigation by the Secret Service that required “a significant expenditure of resources.”

In a hearing in Brooklyn federal court, Judge Matsumoto said she was particularly concerned that he had “doubled down” on his challenge for someone to grab Clinton’s hair. Shkreli said he required a hair with a follicle while urging his social media followers not to hurt anyone.

She said his behavior indicates he is “an ongoing risk to the community.”

Until Wednesday, Shkreli remained free on $5 million bail. His sentencing is set for January 16.

Shkreli, 34, has called the post “satire.”

Here, he denies being a Jew:

Chainsaw Nun Goes Viral as She Helps with Hurricane Irma Cleanup (Video)

Sister Margaret Ann exemplifies the can-do spirit of white people as much as she exemplifies the altruism of nuns. Compare her to the darkies looting on the Caribbean islands.

The Telegraph

A nun with a chainsaw has been praised for pitching in to help her local community rebuild following Hurricane Irma.

Kind-hearted Sister Margaret Ann was seen cutting up a tree which had fallen down on a road in storm-hit Florida.

Sister Margaret said of her kind actions: “Do what you can to help other people, don’t think of yourself.”

The Miami Dade police shared the footage on Facebook, explaining: “One of our off duty officers was happy to find Sister Margaret Ann pitching in by cutting trees to clear the neighbourhood roadways.

“As we recover from Hurricane Irma, these acts of kindness remind us all that we are one community in Miami Dade County!

“Thank you Sister and all of our neighbours that are working together to get through this! #MiamiDadeStrong.”

The clip has been a hit online, racking up more than 500,000 views, with one commenting: “Prayers are great, but prayer accompanied by action is powerful.”

Watch! Eighteen seconds.

Mystery: Ocean Disappears as Far as the Eye Can See After Hurricane Irma (Video)

I’ve never seen this before. Have you?

Growing up in New Orleans, I’ve tracked many a hurricane, but never has the deep water simply vanished extending the shoreline far out to what used to be the sea.

Washington Post

As a meteorologist, there are things you learn in textbooks that you may never see in person. You know they happen theoretically, but the chances of seeing the most extraordinary weather phenomena are slim to none.

This is one of those things — a hurricane strong enough to change the shape of an ocean.

Twitter user @Kaydi_K shared this video Saturday afternoon, and I knew right away that even though it looked as though it couldn’t be possible, it was absolutely legit.

“I am in disbelief right now…” she wrote. “This is Long Island, Bahamas and the ocean water is missing!!!”

Basically, Hurricane Irma is so strong and its pressure is so low, it’s sucking water from its surroundings into the core of the storm.

Best comment I’ve seen: Hurry Moses! Get the Hebrew children over to Florida before Pharaoh gets to Nassau.

The wind on Long Island in the Bahamas is from the southeast to the northwest on Saturday. On the northwest side of the island, it would be blowing the water away from the shoreline.

It also may be experiencing the effects of what I call the hurricane “bulge.” In the center of the storm, where there is extreme low pressure, water is drawn upward. Low pressure is basically a sucking mechanism — it sucks the air into it, and when it’s really low, it can change the shape of the surface of the ocean. As the storm draws water toward the center, it gets pulled away from the surroundings.

In any case, this isn’t the sign of a tsunami. The water will return to Long Island, and it probably won’t rush back with any great force. It will probably be back by Sunday afternoon.

Israeli PM Bibi Netanyahu’s Wife ‘facing fraud charges’

I’m not sure what’s going on on Israel as it relates to the possible criminal prosecution of Sara Natenyahu.

I can speculate that the real powers in Israel want a new Prime Minister and are using Bibi’s wife to take him out.

BBC

Israel’s top prosecutor has said he is considering charging the wife of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with fraud.

The attorney general said he would make a final decision pending a pre-trial hearing for Sara Netanyahu.

Mrs Netanyahu is suspected of misusing 359,000 shekels ($100,000; £77,000) of state funds for catering purposes, the justice ministry said.

Prime Minister Netanyahu said the claims against his wife were “absurd”.

Avichai Mandelblit’s announcement is the strongest indication yet as to whether Mrs Netanyahu will be charged, following a long-running investigation, which has been the subject of intense speculation in the Israeli media.

‘Pathetic and obsessive’
The allegations centre on Mrs Netanyahu’s suspected involvement in expenses claims at the prime minister’s official residence.

Prosecutors say Sara Netanyahu and a senior official, Ezra Seidoff, claimed costs for food prepared externally and for hiring private chefs, between September 2010 and March 2013, whilst covering up the fact that the residence also employed a cook. State funding for both is not allowed.

“In this way, hundreds of meals from restaurants and chefs were fraudulently received in the order of 359,000 shekels,” a statement from the attorney general’s office said.

“Because of that the attorney general is considering to indict Mrs Netanyahu in offences of fraudulently receiving property under grave circumstances, fraud and breach of trust.”

Mr Netanyahu has reacted angrily to what he has long-viewed as a witch-hunt against his high-profile family, driven by political opponents.

“Sara Netanyahu is a strong and honourable woman and there has never been any fault in her actions,” a statement on the prime minister’s Facebook page said.

“Not only did the prime minister’s wife not commit any offence, but the preoccupation with the food of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu – who works around the clock for the state and its security – and with the food of his family, is a pathetic and obsessive one.

“For how much longer will this obsessive involvement with the Netanyahu family continue?”

It really doesn’t matter who is Prime Minister of Israel. The same policies will remain in place. And America will still be the dog’s tail that Israel can wag at will.

If Mrs. Netanyahu is convicted of a crime, it’s difficult to picture her going to prison. Would a conviction topple Bibi’s government? Only the Jews know for sure.

Wetback Who Tried to Carjack Three Football Players Pays the Price

Chron

This New Mexico man’s booking photo shows just how dangerous a life of crime can be.

Angelo Martinez, 21, was arrested after police say he tried to carjack three football players in Albuquerque with a fake gun.

The men were leaving football practice when they say Martinez was “acting sketchy” near their vehicle, according to KOAT 7.

Martinez asked the men for a ride and they agreed, but when they arrived at the location Martinez directed them to, he pulled a gun and demanded they get out of the car. The men complied, but when Martinez fumbled with the gun, one of them jumped back into the car and hit him in the face.

They held him, none too gently from the look of his face, until police arrived according to KRQE.

Men Have Periods Too: Trans Artist Free Bleeds to Prove Whatever

THIS DUDE HAS OVARIES.

If you needed more proof that trannies are mentally ill, here it is.

I’m not sure what the message is. It’s no great accomplishment for a female to affect a male hairstyle and manner of dress. It’s also no great accomplishment to “free bleed,” which I take to mean bleeding into your crotch during that time of month.

So, what reaction does the “artist” want? All I see is a freak dissatisfied with life who is an attention whore looking for a little fame.

Daily Mail

A transgender, non-binary artist has blown up on social media after sharing an image which shows themselves ‘free bleeding’ in public.

Cass Clemmer, a menstrual health activist and artist from Washington D.C. who does not confirm to a specific gender, and prefers to use they/them pronouns, caused quite a stir online after sharing the image on July 12.

The photo features Cass sitting on a park bench, having bled through their khaki pants, while holding a sign that reads: ‘Periods are not just for women.’ They then added the hashtag #BleedingWhileTrans.

Along with the powerful image, Cass also included thought-provoking a poem that they read at a spoken word event which took place during a menstrual health conference last summer.

Cass has also become known for creating and running the Instagram account of Toni the Tampon, a travelling tampon that raises awareness and answers questions about menstruation.

MEET TONI THE TAMPON.

While they identify as non-binary and trans, Cass does menstruate and is very open about the struggles involved, both in terms of dealing with a period in general, and menstruating as someone who is not a woman.

‘I wrote these rhymes to help you see, I’m not tryna bring up something shallow, Periods are honestly pretty traumatic for me,’ reads Cass’ poem.

The artist talks about experiencing gender dysphoria – a feeling of inner conflict over gender – and a fear over what bathroom to use while bleeding.

However Cass is determined to prove that periods are not just something that affect women specifically, and they are eager to raise more awareness about what it means to menstruate as a transgender, or a non-binary person.

Part of that process involved publishing a 20-page coloring book late last year, which featured a character that Cass created – Toni the Tampon – a googly-eyed feminine hygiene product who comes complete with their own fun-filled Instagram account.

Their book, The Adventures of Toni the Tampon, was created to help introduce children of all genders to the concept of menstruation.

However, while many people praised Cass for the clever creation, they also experienced a brutal backlash on social media following the publication of the book – and decided to publish the provocative free-bleeding photo in response to the criticism.

Cass hopes that the post helps shed light on how people of all gender identities deal with periods, though acknowledges that much of the reaction has been transphobic.

Haha. It’s very politically correct of the Mail to refer to Cass as “they.”

Overall, nobody cares about Cass and “his” issues other than a handful of equally freaky freaks.
