Like moths to a flame…

But, Mom. He started it!

he started itI love it when someone starts a fire, then steps back and innocently says, “What happened?”

That fire is the shit storm that NBC6 “reporter” Willard Shepard caused in North Miami Beach with his National Enquirer-like “story” about NMBPD cops using mug shots of black men for target practice.

Without reporting both sides of the story, Willard not only unnecessarily created havoc Continue reading

Breaking News: THE UNVARNISHED TRUTH!

truth next exitIn response to the outright lies and misinformation that NBC6 “reporter” Willard Shepard said about the North Miami Beach Police Department yesterday, Major Kathy Katerman issued two press releases today.

The first release is a Statement Regarding Sniper Training from Chief Scott Dennis, which explains that the NMBPD’s sniper team is comprised of one Hispanic male and one Haitian American male (who is the team leader).  He also describes in detail Continue reading

Y̶e̶l̶l̶o̶w̶ Scandal-Mongering Journalism (Oops! That was RACIST!); Thanks, Willard!

Stranger than fictionPulitzer Prize winning American historian and journalist Frank Luther Mott defined yellow journalism in terms of five characteristics:

1.  scare headlines in huge print, often of minor news

Hack JournalistAs expected, NBC6  is going to run with the Non-Story I reported two days ago, where a female National Guard reservist was oh-so traumatized by a Non-Incident that occurred on December 5, 2014.

North Miami Beach Police Chief Scott Dennis distributed an email explaining that the day after a sniper training at a gun range, the woman just happened  to look into a trash can and saw a series of mug shots that had been used during the training session.  In a bizarre coincidence, out of the many pictures discarded, one of them just happened  to be that of her brother.  She was so upset Continue reading

Paging Al Sharpton! Because #Racism!

Al SharptonJust when I thought life couldn’t get any more bizarre, a story right out of North Miami Beach had me shaking my head in disbelief.

Even more incredulous, NBC6 reporter Willard Shepard is preparing an “exposé” to be aired tomorrow night for the purpose of giving credence to yet another ridiculous accusation of “racism.”

According to a letter distributed today via email from Chief Scott Dennis, Continue reading

charlie-hebdoIf you haven’t been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard about the Islamist terrorist attacks in Paris.  Even though our own country’s administration refuses to use the words “Muslim” when referring to terrorist attacks perpetuated by radical Muslims, I have no problem with that.

I also have no problem attributing last week’s terrorist attacks on a satirical newspaper and a Kosher grocery store Continue reading

2014 Year in Review, Chapit Final

Your costumeAnd finally, I will bid adieu to 2014 by posting this last chapter of the Year in Review, starting with…

October…

…when I inadvertently got sucked into the North Bay Village election.

I know, right?  What was I thinking?

The reason I ventured so far from home is that I was following the Mitch Edelstein money trail, which led me to Continue reading
