9-year-old rapper's adult-themed videos prompt state probe

Parents of the years here having a 9 year old rapping in adult themed video and "rapping" videos about coke. The fact his father who must be an idiot or no other adult saw anything wrong with this shows how far as as a society we have fallen.
A 9-year-old rapper's adult-themed music videos are finding some new viewers -- Massachusetts child welfare authorities.

The child, Luie Rivera Jr., whose stage name is "Lil Poopy," is seen in videos posted online, including on YouTube, smacking a woman's backside, flashing wads of cash, riding in a Ferrari and rapping about how "coke is not a bad word."

A separate video shows the young performer in a nightclub with a dancing woman in a sexually suggestive position, with people in the crowd throwing cash.

The Brockton, Massachusetts, police department contacted the state's Department of Children and Families after receiving a call from a "concerned citizen" who saw the boy in videos featuring sexual themes and drug references. The state agency is brought in when there is suspicion of physical, mental, or emotional abuse of a child, according to Brockton police Lt. Robert Sergio.

According to CNN affiliate WCVB, Luis Rivera, Lil Poopy's father, says his son is "not doing anything wrong," and that he planned on contacting his lawyer.

Mostly white privileged Students protest new FAU stadium name

I remember those days watching a bunch of students joining protests so they can show their empathy or get easy tail or both which ever hot topic issue of the day caught their fancy. Nice to see the privileged students bitching about something they educated themselves off a wikipedia page.
Florida Atlantic University President Mary Jane Saunders has agreed to meet Friday with students upset about a decision to name the football stadium after a prison operator.

About 100 students on Monday protested FAU’s decision last week to name the facility the GEO Group Stadium, after the Boca Raton-based company made a $6 million donation. Saunders said she will hold a public meeting at noon Friday in the recruiting room of the stadium to discuss the concerns.

While Saunders called GEO a “wonderful company,” protestors, describing the stadium deal as the ‘Owlkatraz’ project, say it has a track record of human rights violations. GEO was fined by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration in June, and the company has lost lawsuits pertaining to mistreatment of inmates.

“We’re not going to sit here and watch our university make a laughing stock of our education so they can have some more resources,” said Catherine Armuelles, 29, of West Palm Beach.

Saunders said Monday she didn’t anticipate the gift would be controversial since the company is publicly traded and has had strong ties to FAU.

Student protestors arrived on the FAU lawn Monday morning holding up signs reading, “Profit from Pain is Inhumane,” and “GEO: Find Another University.” Some danced under a limbo stick as protestors shouted, “How low can you go?”

“We already have a problem with getting students to go to the stadium. Adding a controversy is only going to make it worse,” said Michael Cepeda, 21, of Boca Raton.

(AP) Homeland Security frees illegal immigrants over Budget fight.

I am sure they know where all these illegals are right now just in case they want to get them back...Right?
The federal government released groups of illegal immigrants from custody across the country Monday at the same time the White House was making its case that impending budget cuts would harm efforts to protect the border and enforce federal immigration laws.

Advocates reported “waves” of illegal immigrants being released from at least three detention centers in Texas, Florida and Louisiana.

U.S. Immigration Customs and Enforcement confirmed the release of some illegal immigrants Monday night but would not say how many or from which detention centers.

“In order to make the best use of our limited detention resources in the current fiscal climate and to manage our detention population under current congressionally mandated levels, ICE has directed field offices to review the detained population to ensure it is in line with available funding,” said ICE spokeswoman Gillian Christensen. “As a result of this review, a number of detained aliens have been released around the country and placed on an appropriate, more cost-effective form of supervised release.”

Whiny dull idiotic Morrissey says no to Kimmel, 'Duck Dynasty'

I must be the only person in the world who is just tired of this whiny snit who bitches like a little girl every time. Go back to England and stay there in the veggie aisle of a Tesco.
The TV series "Duck Dynasty" is coming between Morrissey and Jimmy Kimmel.

The singer and animal rights activist says he canceled his appearance Tuesday on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" because "Duck Dynasty" cast members will be on the talk show.

Morrissey says he can't perform on a show with what he called people who "amount to animal serial killers."

A&E's "Duck Dynasty" reality show follows a Louisiana family with a business selling duck calls and decoys.

A&E did not immediately respond to requests for comment from it and the Robertson family.

Rick Scott caves, Medicaid to 1 million poor, not enough doctors.

I will be trying to find doctors that don't take Medicaid because I am not nice enough not to be pissed about subsidizes 1 million more people with "free" healthcare.
Whether you're employed and insured, elderly and on Medicare, or poor and covered by Medicaid, the Florida Medical Association says there's a growing shortage of doctors — especially specialists — available to provide you with medical care.

And if the Florida Legislature goes along with Gov. Rick Scott's recommendation to offer Medicaid coverage to an additional 1 million Floridians — part of the Affordable Care Act that takes effect next January — the FMA says that shortage will only get worse.

"Florida needs more doctors and it needs more nurses, and it needs them working together in teams," said Rebecca O'Hara, a lobbyist for the FMA.

About 15 million Floridians have health insurance today, and Obamacare, which requires most adults to have coverage by January, could add as many as 2.5 million more. One million would come through a potential expansion of the federal-state Medicaid program that Scott announced this week he was backing. The others would be the result of new mandates requiring employers and individuals to have insurance or be fined.

Currently, the state has 44,804 doctors, but about 5,600 of them are expected to retire in the next five years. And even though Florida has opened three new medical schools in the past dozen years, the state isn't producing as many doctors as it needs. Scott's budget this year has $80 million to fund programs to train 700 new residents a year, in hopes they'll remain in the state.

American ISPs reportedly rolling out 'six strikes' anti-piracy rules on Monday

Time to put up the VPNs and roll out the anon bittorrent software, screw the ISPs and Hollywood.

A long-delayed set of anti-piracy rules could be put in place early next week. Sources have told both The Daily Dot nd TorrentFreak that five major US ISPs — AT&T, Verizon, Time Warner Cable, Comcast, and Cablevision — will roll out their Copyright Alert System on Monday in a partnership with the entertainment industry. Also referred to as the "six strikes" program, the CAS is a graduated alert system that starts with "educational notices;" if ISPs continue to find copyright infringement, they'll send further reminders and finally throttle or temporarily block internet browsing. It's distinct from more controversial "three strikes" proposals that would cut off users from the internet completely.

According to TorrentFreak, Verizon plans to slow the connections of users who have been found sharing illegal files, while AT&T will block access to popular sites and Time Warner Cable will direct browsers to a landing page. Of course, these plans were mostly reported months ago, back when the program was expected to launch in late 2012. In November, the Center for Copyright Information moved the date back to early 2013, ostensibly because of delays from Hurricane Sandy. It's possible we'll see another delay, but the extremely close date (and the relatively new promotional video below) suggest the CAS is indeed coming soon.

Broward County bus union allows horrible driver to stay on the job.

The greatness of today's union in a nutshell allowing this idiot to be kept on the job as long as he did while causing taxpayers $100,000 for injuring a passenger.

The settlement comes as the division's disciplinary system for bus drivers is under scrutiny, and the county auditor, Evan Lukic, prepares a report he expects to release in mid-March.

Lukic said his office was reviewing the history of another county bus driver who drew a lawsuit. That driver, Charles Butler, remained behind the wheel despite hitting 10 cars, losing his driver's license five times, showing up late and sparking a lawsuit settled by the county for $73,005, the Sun Sentinel reported in January.

Yet another driver, Larry Moore, remained behind the wheel until his January retirement, despite being held responsible for nine accidents and serving a total of 31 days of suspension for 19 disciplinary cases, the Sun Sentinel reported in January.

Similarly, Reid, 60, had built a track record of trouble before the incident that cost taxpayers $100,000, having four accidents he was held responsible for and racking up numerous complaints.

Reid's woes began in 2006, shortly after his hiring in October.

His first accident was in December that year, when he was making a turn onto Atlantic Boulevard and "made contact with a truck,'' causing "minor damage.''

He was warned that another accident during probation, "depending on the severity,'' could lead to discipline or termination, records in his personnel file say.

Five months after that, he broke the mirror off an SUV with his bus.

In January 2008, he had another mishap: hitting a barricade.

Because of his issues, the transit department intervened, requiring him to be retrained. That didn't go well, according to the transit instructors' memos.

Supervisors pointed out to him his history of incidents.

"They showed a pattern of poor defensive driving i.e., speeding, hard breaking and contact with a fixed object and other vehicles,'' his instructors wrote in a memo titled "Retraining of Bus Operator Herton Reid.''

The instructors rode on his bus, observing. While they watched, he broke five rules, including speeding and not allowing enough distance behind a vehicle in front of him. And at four railroad crossings, he failed to stop.

On the same ride, with instructors watching, a passenger was injured "while exiting the bus while the bus was still in motion,'' they reported afterwards.

"Operator Reid stated that he would do his best to correct the problems,'' the memo says in conclusion.

The year 2010 was a rough one for him, and for his passengers, his files indicate.

He had an accident in February 2010. He said his foot slipped off the brake at a stoplight, and he hit a truck in front of him. The bus's front-mounted bike rack made contact, denting the bike that was on it — a 15-speed bike owned by a man in his 60s, the police report says.

In April, it was time for a management sit-down.

Twelve passengers had complained already that year, about "rudeness, moving the bus when people are going to their seats, passing people at stops, and reckless driving,'' a memo in his file says.

He was counseled on "slowing his driving style down so as not to drive unsafe or jeopardize his passengers' safety.'' They also talked to him about his attitude toward passengers.

They offered the Employee Assistance Program, but he said he didn't need it.

Four months later, management called him in again. There'd been more complaints.

He received a mild caution.

so why wasn't he fired long before getting sued?

Transit Director Tim Garling said Reid's "work record is disappointing,'' but he never reached the firing threshhold under the union contract.

There you go.
