Store is fighting back against Brookhaven's harassment by hauling city to court

Store not considered as "adult-oriented" under city's own code




BROOKHAVEN, Ga. — One business is so fed up with the illegal harassment of a city in DeKalb County, that it has decided to force the city to stop the harassment with punitive punishment.

Stardust has decided to file a lawsuit against the City of Brookhaven.  Brookhaven has been giving the business illegal citations on a near daily basis for being, what the city claimed, an "adult-oriented business".

The ordinance states that in order for a business to be deemed "adult-oriented", at least 7 out of every 20 items stocked or sold must be "sexually-oriented".

Stardust noted that even with the online sales of the adult items, that comprises of only 15% of its total merchandise sales, not even half of what Brookhaven's own code considers as "adult-oriented".

"We are not a sexually-orientated business and to go take a eight or nine dollar an hour worker and give them 500 tickets is just insanity,” Stardust owner Michael Morrison told WSB-DT News 2.

Implicating the city as guilty in illegal harassment, a woman who works there said that Brookhaven sent one of their goons in Stardust every weekday.

"Monday through Friday. [So they came in every single day?] Yes ma'am, for six months," said the woman, who works for just over $7.25 and is now facing tens of thousands of dollars in fines and possible jail time for 210 citations she said she received from Brookhaven's code violation division.  We have decided to withhold the woman's identity.

All sides will do battle in court next month.

Savannah mayor, law enforcers, outraged citizens batter and fry GOP and gun lobbyists over weak laws after 11 shootings in 11 days



Eleven shootings in eleven days in Savannah.  Eight of them since Wednesday.  All of them since July 1, the date that a new law allowing guns everywhere went into effect, a law that has been met with disapproval by a majority of Georgians.  And one of the most vocal critics of the law is Mayor Edna Jackson, the mayor of Savannah.  At 8m:27s in the video above, Mayor Jackson says what needed to be said.

"To the State and Federal lawmakers – we need you to toughen up our gun laws. We need you to partner with us. These are your residents too.  It is much too easy to get a gun in our community. Those who want to put more guns on our streets are out of touch with the realities of crime today."

In Jesus's name, Amen, Mayor Jackson. [WJCL News 22]

Officers: Man steals over 190 pair of panties from Victoria's Secret


AUGUSTA, Ga. — The Augusta-Richmond County Sheriff's Office is looking for a man who stole over 190 pairs of panties totaling $1,900.00 in losses for the Victoria's Secret in the Augusta Mall.

An officer who looked at the Victoria's Secret CCTV tapes noted that a man walked into the store just before noon on Saturday.

That officer also said that the suspect scooped up the undies and put them underneath of a shopping bag and completely bypassing the cash register near the front of the store.

The suspect who swiped $1,900.00 worth of women's undies without paying for them is a male of color wearing a white pullover shirt and jeans.

Call the Augusta-Richmond County Sheriff's Office if you know where he is: 706-821-1080.

This is a poor excuse of a man.  Decent men always buy their panties, whether the undies are from Victoria's Secret or the classifieds.

Teacher sexually assaults man, threatens to fail him if he refused to continue illicit relationship

Conn. teacher also sold marijuana to underaged boy



STAMFORD, Conn. — A 32-year-old Norwalk teacher is in jail after she sexually assaulted a male pupil while he was under the age of 18.

About four weeks ago, the Stamford Police Office received a complaint from the now 18-year-old male pupil about a sexual assault that took place when he was still 17, last autumn.

The Special Investigations Unit of the Stamford PO then began investigating.

The sexual assaults occurred during school hours, however, none of the incidents took place on school grounds.

The teen also told police the suspect sent sexualized naked messages of herself and allowed him to use her car even though she knew he didn’t have a permit or license.

At one point, the teen tried to break off the nine-month relationship.  He told police 32-year-old Danielle Watkins – who is married – assaulted him, accused him of being with someone else and threatened to fail him if the sexual encounters ceased, which meant that the victim would not graduate on time.

Detroit's completely corrupt Water Services Department blatantly gouging customers for unused water


DETROIT — There is corruption, and then there is the Detroit Water Services Department.

Since late May, the DWSD have been shutting off the water to tens of thousands of residents who the department gouged on the customers' water bills, claiming that the customers have been delinquent.

There have been massive protests and at least 19 illegal arrests by the Detroit Police Office.

The crisis – caused directly by the Detroit Water Services Department and their price gouging scheme – is so huge, that out-of-state human rights activists – such as Michelle Kinsey Bruns, of Washington, DC – have come to show solidarity for the customers who have to deal with the crooked water services department.  Coincidentially, NetRoots Nation is taking place there.











"This isn't a nation for the one percent, it's a nation for all of us!" yelled Mark Ruffalo.

The bill above is a real bill from the DWSD.  Sensitive information is redacted.

There are many, many other bills like this - bills that simply can't be paid because of the water services department's gouging.

So, right wing idiots can just stop saying "pay the bill".  Because this isn't about the water bill.  It is about a corrupt department that has repeatedly gouged its customers since 2009 and only now, are they being called out and protested against.

Whoever is the next governor of Michigan (there is a gubernatorial election coming up on November 4) need to abolish the Detroit Water Services Department and give amnesty for those who have been gouged on their water bills.  I know how a water bill is supposed to be (no more than about $80/month for the heaviest use of water).  The customers in Detroit have been gouged by this crooked water department.

Bill Maher's unfunny domestic violence jokes are disgusting

Social media directs fury at HBO's Real Time host




LOS ANGELES — Bill Maher is the latest person who should just either stop typing or stop talking.

On Thursday night, just more than a day after Taliban Louie Gohmert slandered liberals in his racist anti-immigrant rant, Bill Maher called Hamas a "crazy woman" who needs to be slapped.



Not surprisingly, far right fascists like The Blaze and Weasel Zippers cheered the tweet.  Here are some excellent responses to Mr. Maher's disgusting tweet:









I hope that Time Warner will do something about this man.
