Idaho Police Deputy who Mocked LeBron James in Viral TikTok Video Signs Book Deal
An Idaho deputy who joked about LeBron James is back to work after being punished.
Several weeks ago, LeBron James rushed to push his hatred of police officers in response to a heroic Columbus, Ohio police officer who stopped a black girl from possibly stabbing a black woman to death with a knife.
After embarrassing himself, James sort of apologized (but then walked it back, really only apologizing for taking the attention away from the violent girl fatally shot by police.)
In response, one Idaho police officer made a video on the social media site TikTok where he joked about calling the NBA player for advice on how to respond to violent situations.
The deputy, Nate Silvester, was first placed on leave, but now has a book deal and has returned to work, according to KTVB 7 confirmed.
“Silvester also told KTVB that he recently signed a book deal with Di Angelo Publications and that the working title of his book is “Never Off Duty,'” the local news organization reported.

Carlette Duffy felt both vindicated and excited. Both relieved and angry.
Black homeowner had a white friend stand in for third appraisal.
Her home value doubled.
Carlette Duffy felt vindicated and excited also both relieved and angry.
For months, she suspected she had been low-balled on two home appraisals because she’s Black. She decided to put that suspicion to the test and asked a white family friend to stand in for her during an appraisal.
Her home’s value suddenly shot up. A lot.
During the early months of the coronavirus pandemic last year, the first two appraisers who visited her home just west of downtown Indianapolis, valued it at $125,000 and $110,000, respectively.
But that third appraisal went differently.
To get that one, Duffy, who is African American, communicated with the appraiser strictly via email, stripped her home of all signs of her racial and cultural identity and had the white husband of a friend stand in for her during the appraiser’s visit.
The home’s new value: $259,000.
“I had to go through all of that just to say that I was right and that this is what’s happening,” she said. “This is real.”
“USPS lost Grandma” Her ashes got lost in the mail
A PACKAGE containing the ashes of Eugenia Yuspeh, a 97-year-old Holocaust survivor, has been missing since it was picked up May 4 by the U.S. Postal Service.
Arielle Yuspeh typed those words into Twitter late Wednesday afternoon, knowing it was an act of utter desperation. But the West Hollywood resident was running out of options.
It had been almost two weeks since her uncle Richard had gone to a post office near his home in Milwaukee, carrying an urn with the cremated remains of his mother, Eugenia Yuspeh. “We called her Nanya,” Arielle said of her grandmother.
At 97, Eugenia had been one of the oldest survivors of the Holocaust at the time of her death at an assisted living facility.She fled from Poland to Russia, and although she was never in a concentration camp, she was captured and sent to a work camp in Siberia.
Eugenia eventually escaped, met her husband, Albert, and gave birth to their first son, and the family made its way to America, moving first to New York and then to New Orleans. Later in life, she would move to Milwaukee to be closer to her son Richard.
Other members of her family weren’t so fortunate. Eugenia’s mother and three siblings were sent to the gas chamber. Two other siblings were killed in a death march.
