POOR PARENTING SKILLS: Mother Reportedly Pulls Son Out Of School To Rob Bank

  


Police in Dekalb County, Georgia have a 35-year-old mother in custody after they say she pulled her son out of school Friday to help her rob a bank.
Police report that Tawander Simmons of Stone Mountain and two teens---one of them her son, held up a Wells Fargo Bank around 9 a.m. Friday while a third teen waited in the car, police said.
There are conflicting reports however about how Simmons met with the teens and her son, 17-year-old Benny Brice.
A Lilburn Police Spokesman told the Atlanta Journal Constitution that Simmons picked up her son and two boys from Stepehenson High School to assist in the robbery.
School police report however that only Brice came to school and decided to leave because the other two had skipped.
DeKalb school officials later said none of the teenagers came to school Friday.
All versions of the story agreed however that the mother had the handgun used in the robbery.
Police arrested the mother and her son, along with Glenn Broom, 18, and David Rollins, 17, both of Lithonia.
All four of them are charged with armed robbery.


Minnesota Men Videotape Rape Then Give Up Name And Number

  


Jerard Braboy is one of three men involved in allegedly raping a 22-year-old woman in Goodview, Minnesota. Unfortunately for him, Braboy and his cohorts thought it would be entertaining to capture the deed on camera resulting in his own arrest yesterday.
After meeting the suspect and another man at a party, the victim was offered a ride home but ended up at the residence of a woman known as "Jackie."
"Jackie" fell asleep, and the victim was hit over the head after exiting the bathroom.
She was then thrown on the bed as the 39-year-old Braboy allegedly began to rape her.
Police report that a second suspect held her down and a third man videotaped the incident.
According to court documents, the victim told the men to stop several times, and pleaded for them to release her.
After reviewing the videotape, court documents show Braboy's cousin was the man holding the victim down and he can be heard saying, “We don't get action like this where we're from.”
That action must have led Braboy to believe the sex act was either consensual or that he had won the victim over since he gave her his phone number under the nickname, “Cakes.”
Where they are from, they also don't understand that filming a crime is a sure way to get caught.
The victim pointed out the apartment and the vehicle, and when police arrived, two Black males were seen carrying a mattress and bedding out of the apartment.
"Cakes" was obviously about to cover his tracks and get rid of the evidence containing DNA, but forgot about the visual proof.
Braboy has previously been convicted of attempted murder, unlawful use of a weapon, aggravated battery with a firearm, aggravated assault, fraud, obstruction, impersonation to deceive law enforcement officers and several drug offenses.
He is expected in court on February 3.

Miami Heat Bail Out Tim Hardaway In His Problems With IRS

  


Retired Miami Heat point guard Tim Hardaway is the latest star to make headlines for falling behind on his taxes, despite earning $46.6 million during his NBA career.
According to The Detroit News, the IRS filed a $120,748 lien against Hardaway and his wife last summer, due to unpaid income taxes from 2005 and 2006.
However, he was bailed out by his former team, the Heat, who purchased the Miami mansion to settle his federal tax debt.
The paper reports that Hardaway sold the mansion to Miami Heat Limited Partnership, which owns the Miami Heat, three months after the lien was filed.
They paid $1.985 million for the 7,542-square-foot mansion in suburban Miami, and are now trying to sell the property for $2.5 million. It boasts five-bedroom, five-and-a-half-baths, and comes a pool and private basketball court decorated with a Miami Heat logo.
The team, nor Hardaway, would comment on why the sale took place.
The 44-year-old former NBA great still lives in the house, four months after the sale, said the report.
Hardaway spent 13 years in the NBA, entering the league as the 14th overall pick in the 1989 NBA Draft by the Golden State Warriors. He went on to play for the Heat from 1996 to 2001, before playing for the Mavs, the Nuggets and Pacers in his final years.
During his time in Miami, he led the Heat to some of the franchise's best seasons, thanks to his pairing with center Alonzo Mourning.
Hardaway was an MVP candidate during his 1996–97 season, after leading the Heat to the best record in franchise history, while averaging 20.3 points and 8.6 assists per game, and coming in fourth in the league with 203 three-point baskets.
In his prime, Hardaway was known and feared for his ankle-breaking crossover dribble.
He retired after the 2002-03 season, and worked as a basketball analyst for ESPN.


2011 NBA All-Star Starters Announced -- Kobe Bryant Topped All Players In Votes

  



The 2011 All-Star teams were announced on Thursday evening (January 27), and it's many of the usual suspects and superstars around the league.
In the West, the starting five are: Chris Paul, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, and Yao Ming.
Melo, who has been the talk of the NBA as of late, is headed to his fourth All-Star Game, and third as a starter. With all the drama he's doing through, and the boos he's been receiving at home, in Denver, he's just happy to be chosen.
"It feels good especially at the time with everything going on," Anthony told NBA.com of his support. "I've been able to stay focused and it feels good that the fans recognize that. I appreciate it."
Kobe has been voted as a starter 13 times now -- only Jerry West, Karl Malone and Shaquille O'Neal, with 14 straight nods each, have more -- and this season is the leading vote-getter.
Paul will go into his fourth game, and second start, and rightfully so. He's currently third in the league in assists and first in steals.
Durant is a certified star in the league now, and he's only 22. He made his first All-Star Game last season, and this year, led all West forwards in voting. Durant is also leading all NBA players in scoring, averaging 28.1 points a game.

As for Yao, well, it's his eighth starting All-Star selection, but he won't play for the second time, due to problems with his feet. Right now, his return is iffy, at best. NBA.com says Pau Gasol, Tim Duncan, and Denver's Nene couple fill out the spot -- the choice is at commissioner Stern's discretion.
In the East, the starting five are: Derrick Rose, Dwyane Wade, Lebron James, Amar'e Stoudemire, and Dwight Howard.
Orlando Magic center, Dwight Howard, is the second leading vote-getter overall, behind Kobe, and first in the East, earning 2,099,204 votes. It's his fifth year as an All-Star.
"It's a great honor and I thank the fans for voting for me," Howard said. "It means a lot to be to be a guy that the fans voted for. It's the best when the fans are voting for you. That's the highest praise. The All-Star Game is still a lot of fun, and I always like being around the other guys."
James will represent the Heat for the first time, and will be participating in his seventh All-Star Game. He's currently third in the league in scoring (25.9) and 12th in assists (7.2).
D-Wade, also repping the Heat, is an All-Star for the seventh time. He's averaging 25.1 per night.
Both Rose (Chicago) and Stoudemire (New York) are starting for the first time. Stoudemire has been there six previous times though, but this will be his first as a New York Knick.
"Representing New York at the NBA All-Star Game is a huge honor for me," Stoudemire said. "If it wasn't for the support of the most loyal fans in the world, I wouldn't be in this position today."
Rose earned his second All-Star selection and first career start. He's single-handedly carried the Bulls through injuries to Carlos Boozer and Joakim Noah, and has Chicago running away with the Central Division.
The NBA's 60th All-Star Game is being broadcast live Feb. 20 from Staples Center in Los Angeles on TNT and 


Terry McMillan Tweets On Will And Jada Smith’s Parenting Skills

 

Author Terry McMillan took to Twitter to discuss how disgusted she is with the way Jada and Will have been raising little Jaden and Willow Smith. Even though she’s a fan of the Karate Kid, the egos of the children have taken her concern to another level…
The Smith children already act like child stars. There’s an arrogance in their demeanor and behavior. I find it incredibly sad. It feels like the Smith children are being pimped and exploited. Or, they’re already hungry for fame. What about 4th grade?
A lot of A-list movie stars shielded their children from the Hollywood-world until they were old enough to decide. Look at those who didn’t. Look at Lindsay. Phoenix. To name but a few. They miss out on childhood. It’s more important than fame.
These kids don’t already know what they “love”. Total bullshit. They’re not prodigies. They think Hollywood is real.
Why don’t they do a remake of The Little Rascals and call it a day? Or, come up with an original film with some ethnic pride. Come on.
Okay. I’ve said enough about the Smith children. I’m not debating about them. It’s just my opinion. People can justify anything, though.
In 4th grade my son came home complaining that the kids in his school said I was famous and rich. I told him that was not true. That some of my books were popular but not everybody liked them. That we could afford a vacation. “Oh” he said, and went back & repeated it. I wanted him to think of me as his mother. He didn’t read any of my novels until he was 15. He only read 26 pages. Was bored.
Have a wonderful Wednesday everybody. I raised my son. I’m not wasting another minute worrying about how Will & Jada are raising their kids.


Martin Sheen Wants Charlie Back In Rehab



UPDATE: Charlie Sheen’s rep tells RadarOnline.com the actor left the hospital Thursday night and will be on the set of Two and a Half Men on Tuesday.
Martin Sheen wants his son Charlie to go back to rehab. Martin showed up at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Thursday after Charlie was rushed there by ambulance.
And while the Two and a Half Men star did not suffer an overdose, as RadarOnline.com was first to report, Charlie had been partying for days, snorting and smoking cocaine.
RadarOnline.com obtained the first photo and video of Martin at the hospital to see Charlie.
“Martin is extremely upset as you can imagine,” a source close to the family told RadarOnline.com. “He’s worried Charlie is going to kill himself.
“Martin has jumped in before when things got really bad with Charlie and even told a judge that Charlie needed rehab. He’s not afraid to speak his mind.”
Sheen was severely dehydrated and anemic when brought to the hospital, sources told RadarOnline.com exclusively.
“His white blood cell count was also elevated,” another source said. That indicated an infection, and Charlie recently battled an ear infection.
Doctors suspect that Sheen has some type of ulceration and want to perform more tests. One test being considered is having Charlie swallow a pill with a tiny camera in it. The camera allows doctors to search for ulcerations.
And while this latest Sheen-capade was not a drug overdose it clearly was tied to his out-of-control drug use. Sheen had very little sleep since Monday, as he partied with porn stars, including Melanie Rios and Kacey Jordan.
Jordan has already shopped her story and said in an interview that Charlie was “wasted” when she got to h is house. She challenged him to a drinking game and eventually, “there was that phone call for the drugs.” A guy came over with a “satchel”, sat at the kitchen table and dumped out “5 8-balls.”
“I don’t really do this stuff,” Jordan said. “He (Charlie) took a chunk... and shoved it right into the pipe and was smoking it. He came over and said don’t you want to give me a kiss and blew it right in my mouth.”
After smoking coke, Sheen watched porn AND continued to smoke cocaine.
Jordan was not at Charlie’s house when the actor was transported to the hospital. His party raged for days and she was already gone.
Close sources told RadarOnline.com that he also snorted cocaine and medical literature indicates that can cause ulcerations.
Sheen, 45, was “not alert” by the time paramedics got to his house.
Charlie’s encounters with porn stars and drugs have grown worse in recent month. In New York he hired Capri Anderson as an “escort” and then partied all night until flipping out. Police were called to his hotel room and found Anderson locked in the bathroom.
Cops took Sheen to a local hospital. His rep said Sheen suffered an “allergic reaction” – a comment that privately has drawn scorn by people who are close to the actor and concerned about him.



Chris Brown Asks Judge To Remove Restraining Order In Rihanna Beating Case

  

Chris Brown appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom Friday afternoon for a progress report in the Rihanna beating case where his attorney requested to remove the restraining order against his client. The singer, along with his legal ace attorney Mark Geragos arrived to the courthouse in downtown Los Angeles and appeared calm and collected before the judge.
Geragos told Judge Patricia Schnegg that his client has completed his 52 week domestic violence counseling and requested she remove the existing restraining order against Brown.
“It makes it difficult at award shows and such,” Geragos said.
Judge Schnegg did not immediately grant his request but did suggest a modification with the approval of Rihanna’s attorney, David Etra.
The judge allowed Geragos a moment to call Etra during a brief recess but unfortunately for Brown, Etra wanted to speak with his Rihanna before agreeing to the modification.
The decision to modify the restraining order will be filed with the court at a later date.
As she did in November, Judge Schnegg praised the Forever singer for staying on track with his probation and his commitment to fulfilling the conditions of his sentence.
In fact, she was so pleased with his progress, the judge told Brown that he can come in “next time you’re in town” instead of scheduling a future progress report hearing.
To date, Brown has completed 581 hours of community labor and his 52 week domestic violence counseling -  a requirement of his August 2009 sentence.
Brown was sentenced to serve five years probation and to spend more than 1,400 hours in "labor-oriented service" for assaulting his pop star girlfriend, Rihanna.
The judge asked for certification upon completion of the community service.
He remains on probation.



Charlie Sheen Paid Porn Star Kacey Jordan $30,000 Wrote Her Check

 

A drugged up Charlie Sheen wrote porn star Kacey Jordan a check for $30,000 after she partied with him in the hours before he was hospitalized, What's more, 22-year-old Jordan is on a mission to sell out her wild night with the Two and a Half Men star and has accepted paid media deals with a number of outlets, including new television interviews.
"Kacey is telling friends Charlie personally wrote her a check for around $30,000 for her services," a source close to the XXX vixen told RadarOnline.com.
"She's even photocopied the check and is proudly showing it off to people."
Until now, it had not been known that Sheen, 45, had paid any of the up to five porn stars who were at his Los Angeles mansion during the wild 36-hour bender.
"Kacey was paid as an escort," the source with knowledge of the transaction told RadarOnline.com.
In her first interview, Jordan said the actor was "wasted out of his mind" when she first saw Sheen at the start of his party.
Giving a detailed account of the bender that led to the Two and a Half Men star checking into rehab, Jordan revealed she challenged Sheen to a drinking game and poured herself a glass of vodka which he then proceeded to finish in seconds.
Jordan said at a stage later on in the night when everyone had had too much to drink a phone call went out for drugs.
A man carrying a Gucci satchel arrived and delivered what she claims was about "20 grand [worth] of coke". She said Sheen took a "huge chunk from the rock of [coke]" and shoved it into a green pipe and then smoked the drugs.
Sheen checked himself in a rehabilitation clinic on Friday after he was released from Cedars Sinai Medical Center on Thursday in Los Angeles on Thursday after a night of partying with female friends at his home.
Not soon after it was announced he would be checking into rehab.
He said:"People don't seem to get it.... Guy can't have a great time and do his job also?"
The star finished the text with a characterization of his detractors: "Bunch of turds."

Signs That You’re Headed for a Break-Up

  


Your tears don’t work anymore.
If your tears or any of the other things you used to do to provoke  a reaction from him no longer work, his emotions may no longer be in the relationship. Be mindful of his reactions to your conversations or the things that seem important to you. If he doesn’t seemed phased, he may be ‘phasing’ out of the relationship.

He tells you he needs a break
Some people really just need a break while others use this as an easy trasition out of a relationship. Maybe he really needs a break, but also prepare yourself for a break that could be indefinite

He no longer has sex with you.
Sex or other physical contact was a normal occurrence in your relationship but now its scarce, this could be  a red flag. Even more so, if your sex now seems routine and lacks emotion, you may be headed for break-up

You get the impression that you’re annoying him
If you get the impression that you’re bothering him, you probably are. If you’re the one calling, planning dates, or initiating conversations and he seems irritated by all of these acts, he just may be over you. Of course, there’s  that fine line of him just having a bad couple of days, but if this has been happening for quite some time, you should probably prepare yourself for a break-up.

You argue more than not.
If your arguments outweigh your normal conversations, you could just be going through a rough patch in your relationship. Still, it’s something to be mindful of to ensure that your relationship isn’t coming to an end. Try to be rationale and figure out the causes of the arguments.

You haven’t heard from him in a couple of days.
If you and your man normally talk a few times a day but that’s changed to a few times a week, this should peak your atennas. Why have the conversations lessened?

He flirts more via social network
This may sound silly but if your man all of a sudden ‘befriends’ random girls or is open with his social network flirting, chances are he’s being open in other areas. Publicly acting as if he’s on the market may be a sign that he will be soon.



Kim Kardashian Blames 'Teen Mom' For Memphis Pregnancy Epidemic, Says It's ‘Disturbing’

  





Kim Kardashian is blaming MTV's popular Teen Mom reality television show for the teen pregnancy epidemic that has plagued a high school in Memphis, Tennessee.
The socialite took to Twitter on Wednesday and called the program “disturbing” and warned followers that teen pregnany should not be considered “trendy”.
"Does the show Teen Mom disturb anyone else?,” she wrote. “Can't get this Memphis story out of my head. This should NOT be
trendy!"
A teen pregnancy epidemic has plagued Frayser High School where ninety students are currently pregnant or have already had a baby this year, according to a report from WMC-TV 5 in Memphis.
According to Kim, the show that has turned Amber Portwood into a celebrity, encourages such behavior.
"I just couldn’t believe this and I find it so sad and disturbing," Kim wrote.
"It seems that shows like Teen Mom are all of a sudden making teen pregnancy seem cool in the eyes of young girls. The kids from these shows are all over the news, even on the covers of magazines, and have been become almost like celebrities, but girls, these are not people you should idolize!"
"When I think back to when I was 16, there is no way I would even have considered having a baby. That thought wouldn’t even have entered my head. Having a baby is one one of the biggest, and most life-changing decisions a person can make and while I’m not saying that no teen is in the position to raise a child, having a baby so young shouldn’t be seen as the trendy thing to do.
Kim even offered some sound advice for young teens who are sexually active and considering having children.
"Girls, please, think very carefully before you make these kind of decisions," Kim writes.
"Talk to your family, friends, teachers, and most of all, be careful."
Despite Kim’s stance, the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy suggest Teen Momdoes the opposite, with 82-percent of teens saying the show helped them understand the challenges of pregnancy and parenthood  and why they should avoid it.

Aggravated Riot Charges Against Yo Gotti Dismissed

  


Rapper Yo Gotti has been cleared of aggravated riot charges after a brawl outside of a nightclub in South East Memphis in November of 2010.

Police issued arrest warrants for eight men connected with the fight, in which an argument escalated into gunplay, resulting in six people being shot.

Yo Gotti, born Mario Mims, appeared at the Criminal Justice Center earlier today (January 19th), where a judge dismissed the charges against the popular rapper.

Police originally claimed that an argument between Yo Gotti and a local rapper named OG Boo Dirty sparked the shooting.

While the charges against Yo Gotti where dismissed, OG Boo Dirty, born Lance N. Taylor, was charged with Inciting to Riot and Aggravated Riot.

"For them to put it out there and run with it, of course it's a little damaging but like I said, I knew it was all going to come to this," Yo Gotti told Memphis' Fox 13.

OG Boo Dirty is charged in serious crimes in other criminal cases as well.

He currently faces two attempted murder charges stemming from two separate incidents in September and one count of aggravated arson for targeting the victims of those crimes.


Prepare the Electric Chair for Abortionist Arrested for Killing Live Babies with Scissors

  



Philadelphia abortionist, Dr. Kermit Gosnell, his wife and eight other suspects are now under arrest for eight counts of murder for killing a patient during a botched abortion and seven children that were born alive then cut with scissors.
After a grand jury investigation, authorities inspected the clinic referred to as a filthy “house of horrors” and found bags and bottles holding aborted fetuses.
District Attorney Seth Williams said, There were jars, lining shelves, with severed feet that he kept for no medical purpose.
The 69-year-old doctor primarily treated poor and immigrant women and has been operating for over 30 years making millions of dollars.
His illegal late-term abortion tactics include inducing labor after six to eight months of pregnancy, then cutting into the back of the living baby with scissors ripping the spinal cord.
The clinic has been shut down and Gosnell's medical license has been suspended.
He is also the target of a federal grand jury investigation for allegedly prescribing prescription drugs and has been named in 10 malpractice suits. Investigators also found $240,000 in cash after searching the doctor's home.
This motherfucker need to be fried, shoot, stabbed and more. Who has the heart to harm any type of newborn, infant or a human life. I cant believe that he because a millionaire off this practice. He is not only going to dance with the devil he going to marry the devil.......... God help these babies and protect them from people like him.

Nicki Minaj Covers ‘V’ Magazine










The newest member of the fashion police, Nicki Minaj, covers the upcoming Spring issue of V magazine, and the “Fly” rapper opted for single-toned hair (as opposed sporting one of her usual rainbow colored wigs), as well as an all-black ensemble and hot pink lipstick for the shoot. Should we expect Polaroid shots (à la Gaga’s 2010 V issue) for the spread to go along with the mag’s recounting of the Harakuju Barbie’s rise to fame? We’ll have to see when the “Moment 4 Life” artist hits newsstands this week.
