California lawmakers are sending Gov. Jerry Brown a bill to ban naming schools, parks, buildings and other public property after Confederate leaders.
Tuesday’s debate split Republican senators beforeSB539 was approved on a 31-2 vote.
Sen. Bob Huff of San Dimas says removing the names would help heal festering wounds from the war, similar to removing the Confederate flag in southern states.
Other Republicans say the bill revises history by deleting mention of controversial figures.
The bill would bar state and local properties from using the names of elected Confederate leaders or senior military officers. Those currently named after Confederate officials would need to be renamed by 2017.
Seriously we do not have anything better to do? Like our water situation and such?
“That was a mistake,” she said. “I’m sorry about that. I take responsibility.”
In a Monday interview with the Associated Press, Clinton said she wouldn’t apologize because “what I did was allowed. It was allowed by the State Department. The State Department has confirmed that. I did not send or receive any information marked classified. I take the responsibilities of handling classified materials very seriously and did so.”
In the ABC interview on Tuesday, Clinton repeated that she did not send or receive classified material on the private account and that she is “trying to be as transparent as I possibly can” about her actions.
She turned over about 30,000 emails to the State Department late last year. She also deleted about that many messages, which she deemed personal.Clinton’s use of a personal email account to conduct government business has drawn scrutiny since it was first revealed in March.
Clinton has previously acknowledged regret about using the private account, but has stopped short of apologizing. In a Friday interview with NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell, Clinton said she was “sorry that this has been confusing to people and has raised a lot of questions.”
In a statement after Clinton’s ABC interview, Republican National Committee press secretary Allison Moore said, “The only thing Hillary Clinton regrets is that she got caught and is dropping in the polls.”
Well I guess I can say she is consistently inconsistent, Yeah that’s who I want for President. We can depend on every word coming out of the side of her mouth.…….
See kids this is what happens when you take those things. You become strong and indestructible. When he was released on bail, he found his phone was fully charged. Seriously though, that dude is treating the taser volts like a mosquito bite. He gets pepper sprayed in the face and just shakes it off. Hard drugs these days are crazy. Turns people into Terminators.
Waco Police discovered a large drug stash during a traffic stop and a fully loaded handgun hidden in the female suspect’s vagina.
The incident occurred Monday night shortly before 11:00 p.m. Waco officers stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation and discovered a large quantity of Methamphetamine.
During the arrest a male and female were taken into custody. While transporting the suspects it was discovered that that female had concealed a fully loaded Smith and Wesson .22 cal. Semi-auto handgun inside her vagina.
Officers had initially stopped a 1998 Toyota Land Rover at 15th and Blair in North Waco. After the traffic stop the Hispanic male driver, Gabriel Garcia, 30, was found to be in possession of 2.7 grams of Methamphetamine that he had concealed under his driver’s seat. Garcia was arrested and charged with Possession of Methamphetamine in a Drug Free Zone. The stop was within 1000 feet of West Elementary School.
A further search of the vehicle found 29.5 grams of Methamphetamine in the female passenger’s purse along with a set of digital weighing scales. That Hispanic female, Ashley Cecilia Castaneda, 31, was arrested and charged with Possession of Methamphetamine in a Drug Free Zone.
During Castaneda’s transport to the jail she told the officer that she had concealed a handgun inside her vagina. Officers immediately stopped and a female officer searched Castaneda discovering she had in fact placed a loaded Smith and Wesson pistol inside her body cavity. The weapon had a round chambered and a full magazine of bullets.
Princess Diana was dressed as a male model and smuggled into the Vauxhall Tavern by Freddie Mercury
Freddie Mercury dressed Princess Diana up as an “eccentrically dressed gay male model”, in order to sneak her into the Vauxhall Tavern, reports have revealed.
This new revelation came from part of the serialized autobiography of comedian Cleo Rocos, which has been published in the Sunday Times, and during which she recalls the story.
Ms Rocos says she attended the bar with Princess Diana, Freddie Mercury and comedian Kenny Everett. She says that after drinking together at Kenny Everett’s house in London, the four wanted to go out to a bar.
Upon the arrival of Queen singer Freddie Mercury, she wrote, the three dressed Diana in an army jacket, a leather cap concealing her hair, and dark aviator sunglasses, in order to sneak her into the bar.
“Scrutinizing her in the half light,” she writes, “we decided that the most famous icon of the modern world might just — just — pass for a rather eccentrically dressed gay male model.”
On arriving at the Vauxhall Tavern, she wrote: “The place was full. It took an absolute aeon to edge our way to the bar, with person after person cheerfully greeting us. It was fabulously outrageous and so bizarrely exciting. Our hearts pounded with every new leather-clad hairy body that approached, but no one, absolutely no one, recognized Diana.
“On we inched, through the leather throngs and thongs, until finally we reached the bar. We were nudging each other like naughty schoolchildren. Diana and Freddie were giggling, but she did order a white wine and a beer. Once the transaction was completed, we looked at one another, united in our triumphant quest. We did it!”
“Never has going to a bar been quite so exhilarating and fun. We then made a swift exit, a cab was hailed and we whisked Diana back to Kensington Palace. The jolly queens queuing outside unknowingly waved back as their ‘queen of hearts’ waved goodbye. Not a single person ever found us out.”
In the early 1990s, when HIV and AIDS were surrounded by hysteria and prejudice, Diana become patron of the National AIDS Trust, the UK’s leading independent policy and campaigning voice on HIV and AIDS.
Man ticketed for broken windshield in the parking lot of the glass shop with an appointment to fix it.
For a man who was just trying to fix his vandalized windshield, there is no break over the break.
“I got a ticket for something that I was close as I could be to resolving,” Nick Berlin said.
A day after a vandal had thrown a rock at his windshield, Berlin made an appointment at a local auto glass shop to have it replaced.
Just as he was about to pull into the auto glass shop, an Adams County Sheriff’s Deputy pulled Berlin over and issued him a ticket for an “unsafe vehicle.”
The ticket was issued in the parking lot of Absolute Auto Glass at Broadway and West 64th Avenue on Aug. 19.
9Wants to Know acquired the ticket from the Adams County Sheriff’s Department and reviewed invoices and schedules provided by Absolute Auto Glass.
Records corroborate Berlin’s account of when and where he was issued the ticket and his set appointment at the shop.
The ticket shows the officer wrote up the citation at 3:39 p.m., just minutes after Berlin’s set appointment.
“We were just standing here in our door and were ready for his appointment and all of the sudden we see a cop out there writing the guy a ticket,” shop owner David Sprague said. “We were pretty astounded to think that was what happened.”
Images provided by Absolute Auto Glass show damages to the passenger side of the windshield. “He had plenty of visibility on the driver side,” Sprague said.
Berlin insists he tried explaining to the Adams County deputy he had an appointment to repair the windshield, but in the end, it didn’t make difference.
“I don’t know if he’s a no-nonsense kind of cop,” Berlin said, while claiming he never raised his voice or got angry with the officer. “It was definitely a bummer.”
The American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado called the ticket part of a larger problem.
“The more and more police officers see their role as ticketing as opposed to protecting public safety, that has a tendency to erode the public trust,” said Denise Maes, the public policy director for the ACLU.
The Sheriff’s Department’s “no comment”
9Wants to Know requested an on-camera interview with the Adams County Sheriff’s Department to explain the reasoning behind the ticket.
A spokesperson said a commander within the department didn’t want to do the interview and that no comment would be provided for this report. The spokesperson would only say the ticking officer has his own “discretion.”
Driving with a broken windshield in Adams County can be a violation, according to the traffic code.
Berlin wishes he could have been given a break over his broken windshield. He plans to fight the ticket in court.
“It’s the idea more than the amount of money,” Berlin said.
Shop owner David Sprague said he would cover Berlin’s $46 ticket if the judge doesn’t dismiss the citation. Court is set for Nov. 18.
This is a totally chicken shit fucking ticket, My guess is that it was a motorcycle cop. They are the ones who are obsessive about these things.
The whole purpose of a ticket is to change behaviors or get compliance of an issue. He was obviously getting compliant with an appointment to repair the window, and the ticket written in the glass shop parking lot. How else is he supposed to get the car there? It was an easy thing to do to confirm if he was going to get it fixed.
This is a cowards chicken shit ticket.
Ticket quotas for cops are illegal but if a certain standard is not upheld they will get bad reviews or at least a talking to, but this is a revenue issue and not a safety issue. He was at a place to fix it and so there was no more safety issue involved.
