Authorities in Gwinnett County are investigating a shooting involving Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill.
According to Gwinnett County Police Sgt. Brian Doan, Hill accidentally, (HUH?) shot 43-year-old Gwenevere McCord at a model home located at 2567 Britt Trail Drive in Lawrenceville at around 5:30 p.m. Sunday. McCord is in critical condition at Gwinnett Medical Center with a gunshot wound to the abdomen.
You do not accidently shoot someone, It is done through negligence!
Authorities said that Hill has refused to cooperate with the investigation and did not give a statement or answer questions. Because he is an active sheriff, he was allowed to leave the scene, Doan said.
BUT YEAH RIGHT HE IS NOT GETTING SPECIAL TREATMENT!!!
Neighbors told 11Alive’s Ryan Kruger that McCord is a real estate agent and a friend of Hill. Police originally said there were four people at the home at the time of the shooting — Hill, the victim and two potential home buyers. Monday morning, they said Hill and McCord were the only two people inside the house.
Investigators with the Gwinnett County Police Department are consulting with the district attorney’s office about the case. No charges have been filed and the investigation is ongoing, according to a police news release.
A sex workers organization has filed a lawsuit in California claiming the laws against prostitution violate their constitutional rights. News10/KXTV
A lawsuit is challenging the way California thinks of prostitution. And if a judge rules in favor of the plaintiffs, it could mean the world’s oldest profession would be legalized.
A Bay Area group of sex workers wants to make prostitution legal. In March, they sued four Bay Area district attorneys and filed a lawsuit in federal court to strike down the state’s current law banning prostitution.
They say their constitutional rights are being violated by laws banning what they do.
“Our lawsuit seeks to get protection for right to have sexual privacy and right to associate with each other,” Maxine Doogan with the ESPLER Project said.
ESPLER is short for Erotic Service Provider Legal Education and Research Project.
“We should not be liable or labeled as criminal. We are adults. We know what we are doing. We should have our constitutional rights in this matter upheld,” Doogan said.
But groups like Courage House and Bridget’s Dream have worked hard to get underage victims of sex trafficking off the streets and into a safer environment.
“Most kids are running from something, but they don’t know they they’re running into the arms of a a predator,” Bridget’s Dream’s Leah Albright said in 2013.
“We consider sex trafficking to be essentially like modern-day slavery,” California Deputy Attorney General Maggie Krell said.
Victims groups and law enforcement worry that legalizing prostitution could lead to more young victims. They say it’s a risk not worth taking.
This is what they want? To be Regulated by big brother and out of control taxes?
Remember this is a victimless crime and is usually done by heavy drug users, Which in Kalifornia is no longer a crime either.
They better be careful they just might get what they ask for……
You can learn a lot from the samurai way, including how to poop more effectively. As writer Will Black discovered, you just need to reposition your leg.
The samurai would sit squarely on the seat, cross his leg so that his right ankle rested on his left knee (his left foot remained on the ground), place a hand on each knee, then straighten his back. Supposedly this aligns the bowels to help one from having to strain. You may think it seems like a bunch of malarkey, but this one actually works. If you have ever felt like there is a plumbing issue when you sit down, then pay attention. Take your time, have some patience, and you will get the yoga version of Draino on your system that has been passed down from samurai warlords of old. I have literally felt a swirling sensation during the act of evacuation. Try it out to see for yourself.
I didn’t want to take his word for it so I tried it myself and this does work. It’s not particularly comfortable outright, as toilets weren’t designed for anyone to sit this way, but you can adjust yourself for comfort before you begin your business. Once you start pooping, you’ll realize your crossed leg almost acts like a frozen yogurt dispenser as it feels like it’s helping to push the poop out without the need for any muscle strain. This technique won’t replace the need for a balanced diet with sufficient fiber and water, but if you have healthy poop it will help you do your business better.
Fox News erroneously reported that Baltimore police shot a man Monday in the same neighborhood where unrest broke out last week — a mistake quickly corrected by the news network.
The midafternoon report by correspondent Mike Tobin, which also found its way onto Foxnews.com, was potentially dangerous, given the elevated tensions in Baltimore’s Sandtown section, where protests and looting erupted in the wake of the death of Freddie Gray while in police custody.
Tobin’s report caused about 30 minutes of unease in Baltimore before Fox anchor Shepard Smith went on-air to correct the story and apologize for the incorrect information. His apology followed a statement from Baltimore police that there had been no shooting.
Live news reports often have errors, and Tobin’s is merely the latest in a long series of them. Yet few recent reports have had as much potential as Tobin’s to stir a violent reaction, considering it came amid more than a week of protests about alleged police misconduct.
Bystanders near Pennsylvania and North avenues shot cellphone footage of a man lying on the sidewalk surrounded by an apparently agitated crowd around 2:45 p.m. As police quickly moved to surround the scene, some in the crowd began to shout that the unidentified man had been shot in the back by officers.
A bystander captured the scene near Pennsylvania and North Avenues in Baltimore. In the video, people can be heard saying, “police shot a man.” Baltimore police said the reports of a police shooting are untrue.
Tobin was on the air moments later reporting that “a guy running from cops” had been shot. “As he was running away, an officer drew his weapon and fired,” said Tobin, who reported seeing a revolver lying on the ground next to the man.
Tobin said he was sitting in a car about 40 feet from the incident and was preparing for a later live report. He said on-air that he “never saw the individual do anything aggressive” and that he counted one gunshot. He also said he saw an officer draw his weapon.
Fox aired footage of the man on a stretcher as he was loaded into an ambulance.
Smith began to back way from Tobin’s initial live report after 3 p.m., although he inaccurately reported, “According to our team there . . . an officer shot that man you see there on the stretcher. We are hearing conflicted reports on local scanners there. It’s very early, and Fox News cannot confirm exactly what happened.”
He later explained further and apologized.
“As it turned out, nobody was shot,” Smith said. “The latest information from police is a man was approached, and the man ran from police while carrying a weapon. As the man ran, the man fell or his weapon dropped or something that’s still in the investigative process. A gun went off. Police say the gun that went off was the gun that was being carried by the man who was running. . . . The man who was being pursued and presumably had the weapon has been taken to a hospital out of an abundance of caution. And police tell us that there are no shooting victims. For the errors we made here, we are deeply sorry.”
In a follow-up report at 5:15, Tobin acknowledged that his live report was inaccurate, but he said, under the circumstances, “I would be hard-pressed not to arrive at the same conclusion [of a police shooting], given all the events that transpired” in rapid succession.
According to Wachtel, “Werewolves of London” was “the hardest song to get down in the studio I’ve ever worked on.” However, Wachtel “laid down his solo in one take, before he’d even had a chance to partake of the bump of coke and drink he’d placed in front of him.” According to Jackson Browne (who was the producer for the recording), “Werewolves of London” along with “Excitable Boy” were written while work was being done on the album that preceded Excitable Boy but were not included on that album in favor of other songs. The song is in the key of G major, with a three-chord progression that runs throughout
