15 Black Men Arrested By a Corrupt Cop Are Cleared of All Convictions


Flashing lights on top of police patrol car

One by one, the men told the same story: A Chicago police officer would demand money from them. And if they didn’t pay, they would find themselves in handcuffs with drugs stuffed in their pockets.

A Cook County judge on Thursday threw out the felony drug convictions of 15 black men who all say they were locked up for no other reason except that they refused to pay Ronald Watts.
It was the largest mass exoneration in memory in Chicago. And even in a city where it has become almost routine for police misconduct to lead to overturned convictions, the courthouse had never seen anything like the order issued in front of more than a dozen men whose lives were changed forever by the former sergeant.

Nicki Minaj's paper shoot bashed by rapper eve

Nicki Minaj performing in 2017

Nicki Minaj broke the internet this week with her raunchy shoot for PAPER magazine and, like anything remotely sexual, people have divided opinions.

We're sure that the rap queen is used to be people criticising her sexuality, however we did not expect it to come from one of her own... yet here we are.

Eve, the multi-hyphenate talent who started out as one of rap's fiercest divas, has hit out at Minaj's photo shoot, suggesting she sets a bad example for young women.
“I worked with Nicki, I got to know her on Barbershop [the 2016 movie]. She’s a nice person, she’s an amazing rapper, and as a lyricist I respect her,” Eve said on The Talk, before a very big but.

“...but as a woman, from my point of view, personally, I would not be able to do that. I think in this climate, it’s not good.”

SAD: 26 young Nigerian migrant women laid to rest in Italy


People touch the coffins after the memorial service.
Twenty-six matching coffins for the mostly nameless victims of the latest Mediterranean migrant disaster were lined up in two rows in the center of the main cemetery in Salerno in southern Italy on Friday.

Local representatives from the Muslim and Catholic communities blessed each coffin. Local students, refugees and survivors of the incident that killed the Nigerian victims laid white roses on their coffins. Ten were interred in Salerno. The others were put in hearses and taken to area cemeteries.
The 26 women and girls were in a rubber dinghy that capsized in the Mediterranean on November 5. Also on board were 150 or more other people, according to Salerno chief prosecutor Corrado Lembo, who says as many as 100 people are considered missing.
The Spanish vessel Cantabria brought the bodies to Salerno with the 64 survivors of the shipwreck, along with 400 migrants who had been rescued in operations off the coast of Libya.

JOINT DECLARATION CALLS ON US TO DEMAND PALESTINIANS RECOGNIZE JEWISH STATE

israel united states

t’s a demand that has been made of the Palestinians by various Israeli leaders in the past, but an unprecedented Knesset-congressional joint declaration issued on Wednesday called on the US administration to demand that the Palestinians recognize the State of Israel as the national homeland of the Jewish people as a precondition to future talks.

The declaration, signed by members of the congressional Israel Victory Caucus and the Knesset Israel Victory Caucus, declares that “the primary obstacle to ending the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is the near century of Palestinian rejectionism of the right of self-determination for the Jewish People”, and that, “only Palestinian acknowledgment of the Jewish People’s historic connection to the Land of Israel, and acceptance of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state, will end the conflict.”

The Israel Victory Project is an initiative of the Philadelphia- based Middle East Forum, whose stated aim is to shift the paradigm to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by declaring Israeli victory.


The declaration was signed during a visit to Washington and New York by co-chairman of the Knesset Caucus Oded Forer (Yisrael Beytenu) and caucus member Avraham Neguise (Likud). The Israeli lawmakers met with their counterparts in the congressional caucus, from both sides of the aisle, as well as other senior US decision makers and opinion shapers, and Jewish and Christian leaders.

The head of Israel's army says they're ready to share intelligence with Saudi Arabia to confront Iran

Mohammed bin Salman
Israel is willing to share intelligence with Saudi Arabia to confront Iran, IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eisenkot stated in an interview with Saudi’s Elaph newspaper.

“We are ready to exchange experiences with Saudi Arabia and other moderate Arab countries and exchange intelligence to confront Iran,” Eisenkot said in a rare interview with the London-based Saudi-owned newspaper, adding that “there are many shared interests between us and Saudi Arabia.”

“Under US President Donald Trump there is an opportunity to form a new international alliance in the region. We need to carry out a large, comprehensive strategic plan to stop the Iranian threat,” Eisenkot said.

According to the Chief of Staff, the expansion of Iranian influence across the Middle East is a major concern to both Israel and Saudi Arabia.

"The Iranian plan is to control the Middle East through two Shi'ite crescents,” Eisenkot told Elaph. “The first is from Iran through Iraq to Syria and Lebanon and the second across the Gulf from Bahrain to Yemen to the Red Sea. We must stop that from happening.”

Eisenkot, who met with military leaders from around the globe at the second annual conference of the chiefs of staff in Washington in October, told Elaph that what he heard from the Saudi representative about Iranian expansion was “identical” to Israeli concerns.

“This is what should be prevented in the region,” he said, adding that “In this matter there is complete agreement between us and Saudi Arabia.”

Pedophile dwarf, 26, who groomed teen girls on Facebook and begged them for sex is spared jail because of his size

A pedophile dwarf who encouraged two teenage girls to carry out sex acts online will not be going to prison because he would have a "very hard time".

Bryan Anthony Bowen, of Welshpool, Powys, contacted the children, aged 13 and 15, on their Facebook pages, where he asked them for sex and to send naked photos.

One of the messages he sent to a 15-year-old girl read: "I will f*** you for your birthday present".

The court that the 15-year-old girl had attempted to block Bowen after he had sent her a message saying "Do you want to f***?". It was after this that he sent the girl the obscene 'birthday present' message. Police found another message on his laptop to a 13-year-old, whom he described as "fit as f***" and inquired whether she had a boyfriend.

When Bowen was arrested, he said that he thought the girls were over 16. He later admitted to the two incitement charges, which occurred between July and October 2015. A further harassment charge was dropped.

House Democrats introduced articles of impeachment Wednesday against President Donald Trump, though they acknowledged their efforts have no chance of success while Republicans control both houses of Congress.

Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tennessee, introduced five articles of impeachment that include obstruction of justice for Trump's decision to fire former FBI Director James Comey, two emoluments clause violations, undermining the independence of the federal judiciary and undermining the freedom of the press.
"The time has come to make clear to the American people and to this President that his train of injuries to our Constitution must be brought to an end through impeachment," he said.
Cohen, the ranking member on the House judiciary committee's Constitution subcommittee, acknowledged the limitations of his proposal.

What are some pros and cons to this? I have started dating older men and many are fresh out of divorce or 2 or 5 years out. I have no idea how divorce works. When does the exwife stop getting checks? Is it financially smart for a younger woman to date or marry a divorced man?

I know an aunt who married an older man, with grown children, who was divorced. He ended up not working, she pays his child support, is verbally abusive and still talks to his ex wife.

Why You Should Never Be Ashamed of Getting a Divorce

Why You Should Never Be Ashamed of Getting a Divorce

When I randomly look through articles I have written on divorce or read through comments on social media posts of these same articles, there's always at least one or two "shamers" trolling the pieces. Usually these shamers quote biblical accounts or talk about how these people must be weak or awful, terrible parents (if divorced with kids) or quitters. How back in the day, "people stayed married." It's funny. These random strangers seem to think they know everything about a complete stranger's divorce and life from one article. The ones who quote religion are acting as a "god" of sorts, passing judgments on people they've never met and never will.

You, the divorced or the person about to get divorced may also get shamers from your community. Family. Friends. Neighbors. Acquaintances. "Another one bites the dust. Another one quits." You can see it on their faces, hear it in their words.

How this $100M da Vinci masterpiece flew under the radar for centuries

It watched as its then-owner, King Charles I, was beheaded in 1649.

It was hanging in Buckingham Palace back when it was still called Buckingham House in 1703.

It survived the Nazis’ 1940 London Blitz, when its keepers abandoned it in their basement.
By 1958, its origins had become so lost in time that it was sold for a paltry $90 to a collector from Louisiana.

The long, strange journey of Leonardo da Vinci’s masterwork “Salvator Mundi” takes its next turn Wednesday at Christie’s, when it goes under the hammer for a hoped-for $100 million.

It is the first Leonardo to emerge in nearly a century, and one of just 16 surviving paintings by the Renaissance Italian polymath.

“Salvator Mundi” — which translates to “Savior of the World” and depicts Jesus Christ holding an Earth-like glass orb — was nearly forgotten forever during its 500-year journey from Italy to the Big Apple.

“We came pretty close to losing it,” Alan Wintermute, a Christie’s vice president and specialist in Old Masters paintings, told The Post.

“It’s so rare that anything this important reappears in the way it has that you can’t help but be excited.”

Battered by time and marred by ham-handed attempts to restore it, the so-called “last da Vinci” was, for centuries, thought to be no more than a pupil’s copy of the original.

Adopted Woman Whose Family Thought She Was Dead Reunites with Siblings 60 Years Later

a man sitting on a couch: Sylvia Kewer a woman standing in front of a mirror posing for the camera: Sylvia Kewer
For decades, Sylvia Kewer’s family thought she was dead.

Kewer, who was adopted as a toddler, grew up in Emporia, Virginia, believing she was an only child. All of that changed in August when she learned she has four half-siblings.

“[Kewer] was saying her whole life she didn’t know what she was. She kept saying, ‘What am I?’ ” Kewer’s daughter, Natalie Graves Tucker, tells PEOPLE.

“Here she is thinking she’s alone all these years and doesn’t know her story … She’s always been a loner and here she has four siblings with children and grandchildren!”
On Nov. 11, Kewer met her half-siblings (and dozens of other family members) at a sweet reunion in Abingdon. Tucker rented a home for the family where they had a cookout and shared old photographs.
