Joe Santos, who played Lieutenant Dennis Becker on “The Rockford Files,” has died at 84.
Santos died Friday in Santa Monica, California, after a heart attack earlier in the week, according to his agent Alicia Beekman.
Santos’ career spanned more than four decades, from a guest shot on “Naked City” in the early 1960s through a recurring role on “The Sopranos.”
But he was best known as Lieutenant Becker, the pal and grudging helpmate of L.A. private eye Jim Rockford (James Garner) on NBC’s “The Rockford Files,” which aired from 1974 to 1980 and scored him an Emmy nomination.
The New York-born actor also had guest roles on such series as “Magnum, P.I.,” ”Miami Vice” and “Hardcastle & McCormick.”
Santos most recently was seen in the 2015 film “Chronic.”
Black Lives Matter Activist: ‘We Will Incite Riots Everywhere If Trump Wins’
“Dear white people…niggas such as myself are fully hell bent on inciting riots everywhere we go”
UPDATE: Poe deleted his tweet and then claimed that he never made the comments. The tweet is archived here and a screenshot of it appears below.
He’s now whining about “slander”. Talk crap, then play the victim when you get challenged on your crap. Same process EVERY time with social justice warriors.
Prominent ‘Black Lives Matter’ activist and rapper Tef Poe has a message for “white people”: If Donald Trump wins the presidency, “niggas” will ‘incite riots everywhere’.
“Dear white people if Trump wins young niggas such as myself are fully hell bent on inciting riots everywhere we go. Just so you know,” Poe tweeted today.
He followed up with another promise: “Trump wins aint no more rules fammo. We’ve been too nice as is.”
Poe is by no means a nobody, he has appeared in innumerable articles charting the rise of ‘Black Lives Matter’ and was credited with coining the phrase, “This ain’t your grandparents’ civil rights movement.”
The rapper was one of the co-founders of Hands Up United, a “social justice” organization that emerged after the death of Michael Brown that was responsible for coordinating large BLM protests in the St. Louis area.
St. Louis was hit by riots in August last year as police were forced to use tear gas to disperse demonstrators who threw bricks and bottles at officers.
The “hands up, don’t shoot!” mantra was later discredited by DNA and autopsy evidence that confirmed Michael Brown did not have his hands up when he was shot by Officer Darren Wilson.
Poe’s threat to incite riots comes on the same day as it emerged that some of the radical groups involved in shutting down Donald Trump’s rally in Chicago last week are planning a “mass civil disobedience movement” beginning next month.
Donald Trump himself also warned that any attempt by the GOP establishment to steal the nomination from him may result in civil unrest.
“I think you would have riots. I think you would have riots,” Trump told CNN’s Chris Cuomo this morning. “I think you would see problems like you’ve never seen before. I think bad things would happen. I really do.”
Trump was quickly blasted by many sectors of the media for invoking the prospect of riots, a sentiment that wasn’t seen immediately after the riots in Ferguson, Missouri, when publications like Time Magazine argued that rioting was a justifiable form of protest.
Just for information there is three people submitting reports to this writer to post on this blog.
Warren Yates, William Thomas Jensen (Tom), and myself.
What is posted on this blog is my responsibility and none other as I read their reports and almost always post them as they submit them because they are well done and I agree with everything said as I am sitting in court everyday too.
I bear sole responsibility in the operation of this site as there is no one else who has access to this site nor has ability to post articles.
If anyone is offended or wants to get pissy about anything, direct towards me because it is my doing no one else.
Anyone can come to my site and comment as I have no restrictions nor logon, if you want to trash talk you will be marked as spam and be banned. I do not inhibit any expressions of opinion or facts as anyone may see them as long as it is honest from the heart talk and not trash talk.
Why am I saying this here and now? Apparently there have been some of the witness’s in this case who have come on here and started talking shit and trash, they have not been welcomed warmly by many of my readers not just me.
Apparently they have complained to the DA’s office saying I have been trying to intimidate them, even they the DA is not supposed to be having contact with them as per the judge because of past issues. In addition, they are supposed to not talk about this case in social media but they are dumass’s.
The DA in court this week attempted to intimidate me back by pointing me out in court in making another non Carson case issue, AGAIN, to the court and seems to be more worried about my web site then shoring up her case as the judge keeps telling her.
In summing up I just want to say all the DA did was piss me off and show me how much of a low brow mentality she has. If she wants a battle of words, I have been there done that.
