GOFUNDME The family of the Young man in Citi Bike Incident.


Mother Of Teen In Citi Bike Video Speaks Out: 'No One Bothered To Ask Him What Happened'

Time stamped receipts and more... There are people here on DU that called this young man a liar and a thief.

The impact of all of this on a 17-year-old Black boy in America
“I can’t say that all of this is not affecting me,” Michael said.

“At first, I felt supported. It was like I went through this thing, people saw the video of it, and they were supporting me,” he said.

But all that changed when Marino put his statement out in the media.

“When those receipts got released, everything flipped,” Michael said. “People started calling me a ‘thief,’ a ‘thug,’ and a ‘Black man.’

“It’s definitely having an effect on me,” he continued. “It’s just like, ‘wow. This is crazy.’”

Michael added: “She did something wrong, and she basically got rewarded for it. She’s made over $100,000 on a GoFundMe. She got all the white conservatives on her side. Everyone who was on my side has just kind of stayed silent.”


NATO allies 'agree Ukraine will become member'

All NATO allies have agreed that Ukraine will become a member, says secretary general Jens Stoltenberg.

Speaking ahead of a meeting of the Ukraine defence contact group at Ramstein air base in Germany, he also told reporters that, once the war in Ukraine ends, Kyiv must have "the deterrence to prevent new attacks".


"Anyone who has been paying attention won't be surprised."

The Trump team is going to exploit what this jury foreperson said and imply she had an opinion and or bias before hearing the evidence. I don't think she is being helpful to anyone right now.

Thank you to the person who gave me a heart! It feels good to be noticed.

There's a lot of sadness in my life right now. I appreciate all the hugs and love I can get. Thank you!

DeSantis to Trump: 'I don't spend my time trying to smear other Republicans'

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Wednesday responded to former President Donald Trump's sharing of a photo alleging the governor drank alcohol with minors when he was a high school teacher.

"I spend my time delivering results for the people of Florida and fighting against Joe Biden," DeSantis said during a press conference in Ocala, Florida. "That's how I spend my time. I don't spend my time trying to smear other Republicans."


6 month post op bariatric surgery update.

First, I want to start by thanking all of you for helping me. Truly, I am very grateful for all your help.

How did I get here? I have lipedema which went undiagnosed for years then in 2012 I developed a rare lung disease which requited me to be on oxygen for awhile. Oxygen dropping and being out of breath made it hard for me to be mobile. Lipedema plus lung disease brought on obesity. I started this journey about 2 years ago at my highest weight of 357 pounds. Insurance required me to lose some weight on my own in order to be approved for surgery. I was about 300 pounds day of surgery and weigh 228 pounds today. So I have lost 129 pounds so far but now I am at a stall. It's getting really difficult to lose more since lipedema fat does not fully go away with just weight loss. Getting rid of lipedema requires surgery and it is very difficult to get that covered by insurance but I am doing it. Medicare requires a lot of loop jumping and checking off to do lists in order to get it covered. It will take awhile but I am doing it. I'm on a 800 calorie a day anti inflammatory diet. It's very strict and very hard trying to get at least 60 grams of protein in per day. My husband took are of me and now I have to get healthy so I can take care of myself. I don't really have anyone I can burden with taking care of me nor do I want to.

Let's see if I can post an image.. I'm having trouble with images so I hope this works.

P.S. My gay autistic son has not seen nor spoke with his homophobic father in 6 months. He's doing well in counselling and taking medication for his depression.

Dmitry Rogozin who was delegated by Putin to be Governor of Donbass will likely lose his penis.

. Dmitry Rogozin, who oversaw the country’s space agency until his July dismissal, was injured when a Ukrainian shelling attack hit the restaurant where he was celebrating his birthday, according to independent Russian outlet SOTA. “Wounded in the back. I will live,” SOTA quoted Rogozin as saying. “The shrapnel [passed] a centimeter from my spine.” Rogozin, also an ex-deputy prime minister of Russia, turned 59 on Wednesday. Russian news agencies reported that Rogozin and several others, including Vitaly Khotsenko, a Ukrainian-born politician serving as the head of the pro-Russian Donetsk government, were wounded at a hotel. Reuters reported that a Russian parliamentarian at the hotel insinuated that the Ukrainian soldiers had targeted the building on a tip.


The media released new details. It turns out that the birthday boy has more injuries. According to the DPR militants' public pages, Rogozin received a shrapnel wound to the soft tissues of the head, a penetrating shrapnel wound to the buttocks, a penetrating shrapnel wound to the left thigh, as well as the groin, the Ukraine 365 Telegram channel reports.

I'm having bariatric surgery next week and trying to prevent from becoming homeless.

My health condition started with a rare lung disease called Pulmonary Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis. Cysts filled my lungs, I was on oxygen, and didn't have the lung function to be able to move much. I gained a lot of weight and now I have been diagnosed with Lipedema. Lipedema is a painful fat disorder. It's not really my fault I am like this. I am explaining this because someone from DU who I will not call out here.. posted on my facebook that I should get a job and stop begging for money. I thought I do owe people a more detailed explanation of what is going on in my life, no matter how embarrassing it is.

I'm having Duodenal Switch Procedures - SADI-S surgery a week from today on 7/21/22. I'm 7 days into my fat free milk diet. I can having nothing but fat-free milk for 14 days to shrink my liver for a safer surgery. Because I also have Lipedema, there will have to be more surgeries in the future to get rid of the remaining painful fat.

On top of the health issues, being on the brink of homelessness, my son who just lost his step father, Tommy has been disowned by his bio dad and bio family. Tommy came into my life when my son was 4, Tommy was his dad, they were close. My son is gay. It's not a big deal to me and wasn't to Tommy but his bio father is Egyptian and Muslim. My son's father snooped in his laptop while my son was visiting him. That whole side of the family instantly disowned him. He is devastated. We're going through a lot. I thought I needed to explain more of what is happening after getting told to get job and stop begging. I promise you, this is not easy. I don't want to ask. It's a lot easier to try and deal with this now than later if I have an eviction on my record. If you have a little extra, please help me. I do genuinely appreciate all the help I get.

P.S please forgive my grammar. I'm not a good writer.

Activist who attempted to carry out the assassination of a Jewish candidate back in custody.

Could the feds be looking a hate crime charges? Why would the feds take over this case? Brown attended a recruiting event days before the shooting at Greenberg’s campaign headquarters for the Louisville chapter of the Lion of Judah.

Snip from The Daily Beast. ~ Brown’s more recent social media posts, particularly the accounts associated with his campaign for a seat in the Louisville Metro Council, show an increasing interest in Black nationalist and pan-Africanist leaders. He frequently posted photos and quotes of the Black Panthers, Stokely Carmichael, George Jackson, and late Ghanaian President Kwame Nkrumah.

“We have one scientific and correct solution, Pan-Africanism: the total liberation and unification of Africa under scientific socialism,” his Twitter bio reads.~
