    A man who held a 39-year-old man at gunpoint in New Orleans and told him to drive to a location was arrested after the driver bailed out the vehicle in front of a Westwego police officer, according to court records. On Wednesday (May 16) around 3 p.m., Elvis Jackson, 31, met the 39-year-old in the parking lot of a Walmart at 4301 Chef Menteur Highway, police said. Once inside the vehicle, Jackson allegedly pulled out a gun, stole $100 from the driver and instructed him to drive to the home of a man named "Bo." The driver began to drive...

  • Man who tried to drown himself in Fairfax, Va. pool is suing the people who pulled him out

    04/30/2018 2:05:37 PM PDT · by BBell · 34 replies
    When he was made assistant manager of a pool in Fairfax, Virginia, two years ago, Mateusz Fijalkowski spoke barely any English and did not know how to swim. In the United States from Poland on a summer program, Fijalkowski spent most of his time here hospitalized after nearly drowning in that pool. Now Fijalkowski, 23, is suing the police officers and lifeguard who pulled him out. Often police are sued for being too aggressive with mentally ill people; in this instance, they are accused of not doing enough to stop a man in the midst of a bipolar episode. Fijalkowski...

    Police officers responding to reports of a man threatening people with a gun on Wednesday fatally shot a man carrying a metal pipe, mistaking it for a firearm, police said.

    The Northwest Inlander ^ | 3/8/18 | Mitch Ryals (as told by his bun)
    We're standing in line for coffee when out of nowhere, I get honked. The lady behind us reached up, wrapped me up in her grubby paw and squeezed. "Your man bun is so soft," she says to the man to whose head I'm affixed with a black elastic hair tie. "I've never touched one before." An innocent compliment to most, but to me this violent assault is just another example of the indignities of my existence. I'm just a bun, after all. I didn't choose to be tied to a man. Women gawk and stare. Sometimes they'll shout: "Nice man...
  • Removing “man” from language can’t change Creation

    Canada Free Press ^ | 03/08/18 | A. Dru Kristenev
    Rewriting English to excise the word “man” is not about inclusion or de-sexing what science has dubbed homo sapiens. It’s about excluding and erasing God from the vernacular and, in effect, society. Removing “man” from language can’t change Creation There is a growing contingent of overzealous cultural reformers who believe that excising the word “man” from the English language will instantly do away with inequality on every level of existence. As one friend once put it, “What form of reality are they living in?” The meaning is apparent when individuals decide ‘reality’ is based on their feelings. (And this is...

    Here’s a bit of trivia about me: My great-great-grandmother on my dad’s side was a full-blooded Mexicana. For whatever reason, this trace of Mexican blood manifested itself quite strongly in me – more so than in my other family members – and I credit my swarthy skin, thick black mane, and Pancho Villa-like mustache to this lineage.To celebrate our family’s Mexican heritage, on Christmas Eve we would eat tamales, enchiladas, sopapillas, and pozole. Both my brother Larry and I eagerly devoured everything on the menu except for the pozole, which we despised. (For those of you who don’t know,...

    Even though a permit is not required to have one, I admit to not carrying a pocket knife until 2015. I had realized that I became part of a generational sea change on this item, which I now view as being much more than just a male accessory choice.It all started when I was at a Garden Center store looking for a trellis, but when I found one, it was bound to several others by nylon zip-ties. I knew I couldnÂ’t saw it free with my keys, so I started to look for some help. I soon saw an old...

    The nation’s transgender community, after a year of tremendous opposition from state legislatures and the president, is rejoicing Tuesday over the election of Andrea Jenkins, who gender advocates say has made history as the first openly transgender black woman elected to public office in the United States. Jenkins, who has been elected to the Minneapolis City Council, became the second openly transgender candidate to win a race Tuesday night. Democrat Danica Roem is poised to be the first openly transgender person elected and seated in a state legislature in the country, beating a 13-term Virginia incumbent who called himself the...

    Just about four years ago we published a post on 15 Manly Smells. The article received a ton of comments from folks who wanted to add their own favorite manly smells to the list, and the other day I found myself lost in enjoyment reading over them all again. So many of the additions were so great and evocative and so worthy of mention, and as the first post was one of my all-time favorites, I couldn’t resist compiling another edition. Enjoy and add your still unmentioned favorites to the comments!Black Coffee “My favorite scent, not just manly scent,...

    In 1960, only 10% of children were raised without a father in the home.Today, 40% are.There are many reasons behind this sobering statistic. The clichéd case of a man knocking up a woman, and then leaving town never to return certainly still occurs.But sometimes a man’s ex-wife petitions for primary custody of their kids, and sympathetic family courts unjustly grant this request about 80% of the time.And there is an increasing number of women — who for various reasons cannot or do not want to raise their children with a boyfriend or husband — who intentionally choose to become...

    This post is brought to you by Dockers®. What’s this? Father’s Day is next week. It’s a day to remember dad and tell him thanks for all the things he’s done for you. If you’re a dad, it’s a time to remember the important role you have in your children’s lives.We often celebrate Father’s Day by getting dad a nice gift — a fishing pole, a tie, maybe an awesome power drill. While such a gesture shows your thoughtfulness and will likely be much appreciated by Dad, the most precious gift you can give can’t be wrapped up in...

    When I was growing up, I noticed that my father kept his car well-stocked with supplies. A lot of the equipment was for his job busting poachers as a game warden, but most of the things were for emergency situations that could happen to anyone. And there were plenty of times when my dad was able to put those supplies to work.Be it a maintenance issue or a snowstorm, keeping the following items in your vehicle can save you time and discomfort, and perhaps even your very life, should an emergency arise. Obviously, the necessity of some items depends...

    VATICAN CITY, Nov 21 (Reuters) - Pope Francis on Monday extended indefinitely to all Roman Catholic priests the power to forgive abortion, a right previously reserved for bishops or special confessors. Francis, who has made a more inclusive and forgiving Roman Catholic Church a characteristic of his papacy, made the announcement in a document known as an "apostolic letter" after Sunday's close of the Church's "Holy Year of Mercy". He said he wanted to "restate as firmly as I can that abortion is a grave sin, since it puts an end to an innocent life" but "there is no sin...

    In the creation God spoke everything into existence- “Let their be Light…let the seas teem with life…let the waters be divided above and below,,,” and because God said it, it came to pass. By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth… Let all the earth fear the Lord: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.(Psalm 33:6-9)But when God created man, he used his own hands- and in a...

    The Soberanes Fire — which continues to burn throughout California’s Monterey County — is officially the most expensive in the United States’ history, with costs topping $208.4 million, the Associated Press reports. California already sustains the highest annual wildfire costs of any state. And, as KPCC reports, this year’s fire season as a whole—which has included scorchers like the Blue Cut, Soberanes, and Sand Fires — could prove to be the most expensive for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) since 2000. The Soberanes Fire, which began on July 22nd after an illegal campfire, is only 71 percent contained, according to the...

    A New Jersey man picked a fight with his girlfriend’s 2-year-old son, telling the defenseless toddler to put up his dukes before beating him to death. Zachary Tricoche, 24, of Pennsauken was arraigned Tuesday in Camden County Superior Court on murder charges after his pathetic attempt at a boxing match with little Jamil Baskerville Jr., who weighed a mere 29 pounds.Tricoche was then transferred to Camden County Jail, where he’s being held on $1 million cash bail. Just prior to the Saturday night attack, Tricoche had gotten into a heated argument with his girlfriend over food she had purchased that...
