And I quote: “ WHITE TRASH AT ITS FINEST”

Where else but Walmart?

Authorities near Indianapolis are investigating after a video of a disturbing fight between two women at a Wal-Mart surfaced online

The fight happened at the Wal-Mart in Beech Grove on Thursday, June 4,2015

And I bet it is over the father of both their babies.

We have video it must be true! BUT then again…………..

The internet has led to many things, both great and well, terrible. Unfortunately these days people get their opinions from short clips or conversations with friends, rather than looking at the facts.

After a video of a bus driver forcing a student to walk 10 blocks home, the internet exploded with calls for his termination. The school board agreed –  at least until seeing THIS!

Clearly one key aspect of the incident was missing the first time – namely, just how awful these students were to the bus driver before the seventh-grader was eventually kicked off and forced to walk.

With the new angle, a lot of important details come to light. First, the bus driver was smacked in the face with a hockey bag prior to kicking the student off the bus. Also, the seventh-grader in question was flipping off the bus driver for a while before he finally snapped and forced him to walk.

The previous video left out the entirety of the prelude to this event, blowing it entirely out of proportion by only showing one side of the story. Sound familiar?

The driver has the bus company to thank for saving his battered reputation after they released the new video.

“If you look at the first video, it looked like he was this tyrant bus driver.. then you see the other side of the story and it sure changed a lot of peoples opinions,” said Laura Doroshenko of Cunningham Transport in a written statement.

Just goes to show, never jump to conclusions, focus on the facts and we can avoid all this nonsense spreading around the web. Lets work together to make the digital world a more informed, thoughtful group of people rather than a band of wild savages with pitchforks, ready to attack anyone at a moments notice.

The school itself addressed the issue via Facebook, saying, “we realize we should not have requested the driver’s termination.. and will be apologizing to the driver as soon as we can.”

Only an idiot would jump to a conclusion quickly, especially with just a partial video.

Ex-South Carolina police officer indicted in death of black man shot in back

A grand jury on Monday indicted a white former police officer on a murder charge for the shooting death of a black man in North Charleston, South Carolina, according to the prosecutor overseeing the case.

Michael Slager, 33, was fired from his patrolman job after being charged with murder in the April 4 death of Walter Scott, 50, who was fatally shot in the back as he was running from the officer following a traffic stop.

A bystander using his cellphone captured a video of the shooting, which was widely distributed in the media. The death reignited a public outcry over police treatment of African Americans that flared last year after killings of unarmed black men in Ferguson, Missouri, New York City and elsewhere.

The video evidence does not guarantee the prosecution a conviction in the case, said Scarlett Wilson, solicitor for the Ninth Judicial Circuit.

“Just because you have video in this case, it doesn’t mean it’s the be-all and end-all,” she said at a news conference in Charleston. “The issue is the people who were there who were involved, who saw or heard anything, who can demonstrate what they saw and heard.”

If convicted of murder, Slager would face between 30 years and life in prison without the possibility of parole. No trial date has been set, Wilson said.

Scott was driving a black Mercedes-Benz when Slager pulled him over for a broken tail light. Video from the dashboard camera in Slager’s police cruiser recorded a respectful exchange between the two men before the officer returned to his patrol car.

A few minutes later, after being told by Slager to stay in the Mercedes, Scott emerged from his car and ran off, apparently unarmed.

The subsequent cell phone video showed the men in a brief tussle before Scott ran off again, Slager fired his handgun eight times and Scott slumped into the grass. There was a gap between the two videos.

Before Slager’s arrest, he said through an attorney that he feared for his life when he shot Scott.

The ex-officer’s current attorney, Andrew Savage III, said on Monday his legal team was still waiting to receive the state’s investigative materials in the case.

“Until we have an opportunity to fully evaluate the state’s case and to compare it with our own investigation we will not be commenting on any aspect of the case,” he said.

This idiot has a serious problem, Even without the video, Shooting someone in the back several feet away is hard to claim your life was in danger.

U.S. hospitals mark up prices 1,000 percent

Even the astronomical price markups that consumers regularly pay for, say, wine in restaurants pale beside those in some U.S. hospitals: The price for procedures is often 10 times the cost, according to a study published on Monday in the journal Health Affairs.

Of the 50 hospitals with the highest markups, 49 are for-profit, including 25 owned by Community Health Systems.

Community Health and other for-profits did not respond to requests for explain their markups, but in the past hospitals have said list prices, shown on a “chargemaster,” are irrelevant because “no one” pays those.

In fact, out-of-network patients and the uninsured are often charged list prices, said Dr. Renee Hsia of the University of California, San Francisco, who has studied hospital charges but was not involved in this research. “People do get bills based on the chargemaster, and for out-of-network care insured patients pay a percentage” of chargemaster prices, she said.

Auto insurers, covering care after accidents, and workers’ compensation also pay full freight. “That results in higher premiums for auto insurance and for employers who pay into workers’ comp,” said study co-author Ge Bai of Washington & Lee University. “That means we are all victims of these markups.”

She and Gerard Anderson of Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health blamed lack of regulation and transparency for 1,000 percent markups. Non-transparency means patients cannot learn what a procedure will cost before they get a bill, preventing comparison shopping.

Those bills can be eye-opening. Hsia, for instance, found that charges for a lipid panel blood test varied from $10 in one California hospital to $10,169 in another; opening blocked arteries cost $22,047 in one, $165,386 in another.

For their study, Anderson and Bai analyzed 2012 data, the latest available, from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to identify the 50 hospitals with the highest markup over Medicare’s allowed charges, which Medicare considers a hospital’s cost.

The 50 had an average markup of 1,010 percent (see Factbox), vs. 340 percent for the other 4,433.

Data for 2013, released last week, support the findings. The hospital with the highest markup in 2012, North Okaloosa Medical Center in Florida, charged $113,000 to treat respiratory infections in 2013, vs. Medicare’s $10,000. In second place, Carepoint Health-Bayonne in New Jersey charged $193,000 for pneumonia vs. Medicare’s $9,600.

To treat hemorrhage, common in auto accidents, Okaloosa charged $79,350 vs. Medicare’s reimbursement of $5,177.

Is this shit a surprise to anyone? But yet we let them get away with it……..
