Officials: 22 Indicted In Multistate Dog-Fighting Ring
December 22, 2014 11:54 PM

BALTIMORE (WJZ) –Baltimore police break up what they call a major underground dog fighting ring that involved more than 200 dogs including dozens of puppies. Derek Valcourt has details on the raid and the rescued animals.
Police found wounds and scars on so many animals. Some of them were living in deplorable conditions. A few dozen of the puppies were saved before they ever had a chance to fight.
From large adults to the tiniest of pups, authorities said their year long dog fighting investigation netted 225 animals. Fifty of them were just puppies.

“[In] 2014 we still have human beings that feel that dogs were bred to do this kind of thing is just ridiculous,” Lt. Col. Sean Miller with Baltimore police said.
This incident outlines 297 charges, including conspiracy, dog-fighting and animal abuse, against 22 defendants who are accused of forcing dogs to engage in brutal fights, sometimes to the death. Prosecutors said gambling purses at the fights would reach as high as $100-thousand.
“These indictments bring into the light a form of brutality that for too long has unfolded in forgotten basement of Baltimore and beyond,” Thiru Vignarahah with the City State Attorney’s Office said.

A citizen tip in 2013 launched the investigation into the Baltimore based dog fighting ring with connections to West Virginia, the Carolinas and even New York. Detectives raided multiple homes throughout the year including, a McHenry Street end unit, where a saving pitbulls sign hangs int he window along with a beware warning.
It all led up to Wednesday morning when they conducted simultaneous raids on 15 homes in the city and two in the county. Along with the animals themselves, police confiscated heavy chains, even treadmills used to help train the dogs and more than 20 guns. Almost all of the indicted suspects have criminal records.
Police won’t say much about the condition of the animal they’ve confiscated. They’re only saying those dogs that can be rehabilitated will be adopted out to loving homes.
Officials with Baltimore’s Animal Rescue and Care shelter and with the SPCA declined to comment for this story.

Charles Manson wedding off after it emerges that fiancee Afton Elaine Burton 'just wanted his corpse for display'

CHRISTOPHER HOOTON Author Biography Monday 09 February 2015

Serial killer Charles Manson's supposed budding romance with a woman 53 years his junior has been allegedly exposed as a money-making scheme.

According to journalist Daniel Simone, 27-year old Afton Elaine Burton, now known as Star, was hoping that she would gain possession of Manson's corpse through marriage so she and a couple of friends could put it on display in a glass case in LA.

They apparently thought the Lenin's Tomb-esque attraction would draw a huge number of visitors and make them a lot of money. A zany photoshoot the couple did in 2013 (Picture: MansonDirect.com)

But Manson, 80, apparently got wind of the plan and now no longer wants to marry Burton.

"He's finally realized that he's been played for a fool," Simone told The NY Post.

The tourist attraction was also something of a non-starter because Manson believes he is immortal.

"He feels he will never die," Simone added. "Therefore, he feels it’s a stupid idea to begin with."

Manson and Burton's marriage license expired on Thursday, though Burton apparently remains hopeful that it will be renewed.

Perhaps Manson had the last laugh though - Simone claims he was always cagey about marriage and might have been stringing Burton and her friends along with the prospect of a wedding as they continued to bring him toiletries and other items.

Jimbo's Deli in the news...

? who knew Jimbo had a Deli in Jersey ?

Neighbors Outraged Over ‘White History Month’ Sign In Flemington Deli Window
March 4, 2015 7:48 PM

FLEMINGTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A sign in a store window stirred up racial tension in Flemington, New Jersey this week.
The sign in the window of Jimbo’s Deli on Main Street says “Celebrate your white heritage in March. White History Month,” as first reported by the Hunterdon County Democrat,
“The ‘white’ had a cross. It was a cross ‘t,’ which is used by the Ku Klux Klan as a symbol, right,” said Bhakti Curtis.
The “t” Curtis said originally looked like a cross has since been changed into a capital “T,” WCBS 880’s Alex Silverman reported Thursday.

Curtis, a bi-racial neighbor, said he couldn’t believe what he was seeing. He confronted the owner, Jim Boggess.
“He didn’t have a clue why I was offended and then why other people would be upset about it neither,” he said.
WCBS 880 couldn’t reach Boggess for comment, but he told the Hunterdon County Democrat, “No matter what you are — Muslim, Jewish, black, white, gay, straight — you should be proud of what you are. I shouldn’t have to feel bad about being white. I just want to be included. Why is this such a big deal? I don’t get it.”
Curtis asked police to look into it but they decided nothing could or should be done.
“I’m never going to step foot back into that establishment, no,” he told Silverman Wednesday.
However, the sign has been taken down and Boggess has apologized to Curtis, NJ.com reported Thursday...
