Teenage Mutant Negro Turtle Robs Convenience Store


Leonardo, Michaelangelo, Raphael, Donatello, and…Lacorrion. We have to see how this story holds up, it could just be some kind of weird promotion for the new Ninja Turtles movie. Hey, they did have Juicy J do the soundtrack. From TPM:

A Louisiana teen is behind bars after police say he donned a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle mask and used a stick wrapped in plastic to rob a convenience store Thursday morning.

Lafayette police say 18-year-old Lacorrion Detron Turner is charged with first-degree robbery. Police say he was able to force his way behind the counter with the stick. He then tried — and failed — to open the register.

Police say Turner fled on foot after taking two wallets from underneath the counter.

Meth Head Couple Caught Sexing In Backseat Of Cop Car


Romance isn’t dead, it just lives in the back of a cop car and uses Busch Light and meth as an aphrodisiac. From The Smoking Gun:

After being arrested, a Wisconsin couple had sex in the back of a police cruiser, an encounter that was interrupted when a cop heard the woman “begin to moan loudly” while her legs were “touching the ceiling” of the vehicle, according to a criminal complaint.

Heather Basten, 29, and Travis Husnik, 33, were taken into custody by Oconto County Sheriff’s Department deputies after their car was spotted drifting into oncoming traffic on August 3.

During questioning by cops, Basten, who was driving, and Husnik admitted they had been drinking. A deputy noted that there were two open cans of Busch Light on the car’s floorboard, and that Husnik “indicated one been belonged to him and the other to Heather.”

Husnik, who was on probation, was handcuffed and placed in the rear of a police cruiser. He was soon joined there by Basten, who was driving without a license and had a used syringe in her purse. Basten reportedly said that she “used to shoot up meth with it.”

No Experimental Drug For The Black Guy With Ebola


Lesson learned: If you’re black and catch Ebola you can only get the experimental, life-saving drugs if you hold the hospital hostage like John Q. From CNN:

Thomas Eric Duncan, a man with Ebola who traveled to the United States from Liberia, died Wednesday morning at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, the hospital said.

He had been in critical condition after being diagnosed with the virus in mid-September. People who had contact with the 42-year-old Liberian national are being monitored for symptoms.

Louise Troh, Duncan’s longtime partner, said through a public relations firm that she believes “a thorough examination will take place regarding all aspects of his care.”

Video: Cops Punch, Pistol Whip Surrendering Teen After Chase


Hell hath no wrath like a fat ass cop who’s angry that he actually had to chase a suspect. From Gothamist:

According to court records obtained by DNAinfo, Kahreem Tribble caught officers’ attention when they spotted him peering into a van parked in Bed-Stuy shortly after 2 a.m. on August 29th. When officers emerged from their vehicle to approach Tribble, he allegedly tossed a small canvas bag and ran. A short foot-chase concluded with Tribble, 16, apparently attempting to surrender.

The video, which is silent, shows Tribble stopping as officer Tyrane Isaac catches up to him and punches Tribble in the head. As Tribble backs up against a storefront with his hands up, another officer, David Afanador, appears to strike him in the head with his firearm.

Video: Police Taser 62-Year-Old In Her Back, Just Because


Remember: Never turn your back to a wild animal, or a feral policeman. Both are extremely untrustworthy and violent.  The assault begins at the 2:32 mark. From Talking Points Memo:

“A Tallahassee police officer tased a 62-year old African-American woman in the back while she was walking away from him.

The incident, which was caught on tape, has resulted in an internal investigation and the officer being put on leave. It happened while police were responding to calls about drug deals on Tuesday evening.

In the video, Mahan is seen walking past two police cars toward the woman, Viola Young. Young turns around and Mahan pulls out his stun gun and shoots at Young’s back. Young falls down straight onto the ground.

A released police report said that Mahan said Young and another man were yelling at officers. When Mahan told people to step back, the man complied, according to the report, but Young did not.”
