She owes over $12,000 for 911 calls, now she may lose her home

Where Parker lives, in South Euclid, Ohio, a local ordinance allows the city to fine residents if the cops repeatedly show up at their house—something that’s happened to Parker’s family numerous times—to deal with a “nuisance” or criminal complaint. Parker, whose adult son has schizophrenia, was punished under the law after her child’s worsening mental health needs triggered repeated visits from the police.

And Parker’s son, who doesn’t even live with her, was usually the one calling the cops—not her. On one occasion, Parker was fined after her son called 911 and “made bizarre and threatening complaints against his mother and family members,” according to a lawsuit Parker filed against South Euclid in late August alleging the violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act and her constitutional rights. Another time, he called the police to say he was suicidal. That cost her too.

“I feel that no one is there to help me,” Parker said. “I just feel like they don’t care. It bothers me because I might be homeless. And I don’t know what to do. I worked all my life.”

Kudos to Gabby Petito's family

Heard on tv that they established a memorial fund in her name to help other families find their missing loved ones. My heart goes out to them and all families going through this. I think it’s an amazing thing for them, even in their time of suffering, to be concerned about the suffering of others.

So basically, this is "America's Got Talent," but with important real-life issues and causes that probably shouldn't be exploited.

Did Y'all get the AIDS vaccine?

We should focus on being civil and educating people about the [Covid vaccine] and not trying to bully them into taking it and work at it that way,” he told right-wing podcast host Erick Erickson.

“[The Covid vaccine] is basically how the AIDS vaccine worked. People wouldn’t take it early on because it was mandated, they started educating people and now it is doing a lot of good out there. Same scenario, different year that we are dealing with right now.”

Salon reports Kemp has used this argument before. “Well we are not going to have a statewide mask mandate,” he said previously. “[Commissioner of the Georgia Department of Public Health Dr. Kathleen] Tumi and I believe that they do not work. They did not work with the AIDS vaccine and they’re not going to work with the corona vaccine.”

Unvaccinated couple die within hrs of each other, leaving 7 children

I felt a sense of anger and sadness reading this. A year ago, this time, a story like this would only invoke sadness. But now it’s just inexcusable to have all this responsibility and not get vaccinated
After a woman apparently died from COVID-19, her husband, who was also hospitalized with the virus, was so distraught by the news that he passed away hours later from a heart attack. The high school sweethearts, both 44-years-old, left behind seven children.

“They met when they were 14 years old, got married, been married 22 years, and had seven beautiful children,” said Tiki Green, sister of Troy Green, Fox 2 Detroit reports

Sad to say a good # of people in this country would have sided with the terrorists

If 9/11 happened today. That’s how low we have sunk. They would delight in NY being attacked. Anything to own the libs😢

RIP Michael K. Williams

Such a gifted talent. You will be missed. It is ironic that the last film he worked on was about the shadiness of drug rehab facilities.
There are a select few characters that we never forget. Michael’s portrayal of Omar in THe Wire, is one of them.
