Jose Baez cleared

The Florida Bar has cleared two complaints against Jose Baez after finding no probable cause.
The Bar unanimously voted to clear Baez of failing to share discovery information with the prosecution prior to the trial and Baez's failure to disclose to the court that Casey was being allowed to serve probation for her check-fraud case while in jail awaiting trial for murder in the death of

Baez will not face any discipline, but was issued a letter of advice, according to The Bar. The letter reminds Baez that it's his responsibly to uphold professional standards.
"The grievance committee also issued a letter of advice indicating that while Mr. Baez's conduct did not warrant formal discipline, the committee believed his conduct was not consistent with the high standards of the legal profession," Bar spokeswoman Karen Y. Kirksey wrote.
 Baez was sanctioned last year by Judge Perry and made to pay a $583 fine for his "willful violation" of a court order for his failure to share discovery with the prosecution.
"Much has been made about the claims filed against me," Baez said in an email statement. "I am glad to see the grievance committee was fair and thorough in their decision."

Shaq doesn't need puertoricans!

Right now, there is no confirmation from English media sources, but a report out of La Nueva 94 in Puerto Rico states that ex-NBA star and TNT personality Shaquille O'Neal had some choice words for the island of Puerto Rico, during NBA All-Star Game festivities this weekend in Orlando.  This was also reported from Orlando's 100.3 Rumba radio station this morning.
This is what La Nueva 94 is claiming  that Shaq said to Emilio Pérez, a Puerto Rican sports talk personality of the Tiro al Blanco (TAB) show. 

“No necesito nuevos fanáticos, Yo tengo ya suficiente dinero en el banco…y de hecho, qué rayos es Puerto Rico… si solo es un simple lugar que ocupa poco más de ¼ de pulgada en el mapa. No me interesan y no me afectan”.
“I don't need new fans. I have enough money in the bank… and in fact, where the hell is Puerto Rico… it is just a simple place that takes up just ¼ of an inch on a map. They do not interest me and they don't affect me.
La Nueva 94 seems to be standing by its story, although it lacks content and details. The site for Tiro al Blanco, TabDeportes (which is ad-sponsored and annoying to navigate), contains more details about the story. Apparently, according to TAB, Pérez spotted O'Neal at the Amway Center and asked a bodyguard to see if Pérez could take a photo of O'Neal for Shaq's fans in Puerto Rico. The bodyguard was friendly to Pérez, but according to the TAB report, Shaq was not.
Once Pérez got close to O'Neal, Shaq reportedly told Pérez that a photo was not going to happen, and after he said it again, Pérez told him that O'Neal has many fans in Puerto Rico and he might lose some of those fans because of his attitude. The report below then goes on to say that O'Neal made fun of Pérez's appearance and then said the above quote.

Sugarland claims fans died and were injured due to their own faults!

Victim Christina Santiago
Fans who were killed and injured when stage rigging and sound equipment collapsed onto them as they awaited a Sugarland concert at the Indiana State Fair failed to take steps to ensure their own safety and are at least in part to blame for their injuries, the country duo's attorneys said. The statement, part of a Feb. 16 response to a civil suit filed by survivors and families of some of those killed, comes in sharp contrast to earlier statements by lead singer Jennifer Nettles and appears to be an attempt to cast blame elsewhere.
Calling the powerful winds that toppled the stage on Aug. 13 an "act of God," Sugarland's attorneys said fair officials and Mid-America Sound Corp. were responsible for the stage setup, and that the fans voluntarily assumed risk by attending the show.
"Some or all of the plaintiffs' claimed injuries resulted from their own fault," according to the band's response. Sugarland attorney James H. Milstone did not immediately respond to a phone call seeking comment Tuesday.
Seven people died and 58 were injured in the crush beneath the metal rigging and concert sound equipment.

Jeff Stesiak, a South Bend attorney involved in the suit, said the band's response was strange given the circumstances of the fans' injuries.
"It's unusual to put the blame on victims. The concert wasn't canceled and they weren't told to leave. I can't imagine what the victims did to be at fault," Stesiak said Tuesday. "They had a duty to warn fans. An open and obvious danger is more like walking along a road and seeing a downed power line and walking over it anyway. The storm wasn't like that."
Lawyers for the band are seeking a jury trial.
In a Jan. 16 deposition on a lawsuit against the company that built the stage rigging, Indiana State Fair Commission Executive Director Cindy Hoye testified that Sugarland resisted delaying the start of the concert despite threatening weather.
Hoye said a representative for a concert promotion company working with the fair twice approached Sugarland about the fair's desire to delay the show. But Hoye said the band expressed concerns about how a delay would affect the time Nettles needed to warm up and complicate the band's travel to its next show.
Sugarland tour manager Hellen Rollens told investigators with the Indiana Occupational Safety and Health Administration that there was no discussion of delaying the show.

PETA has to be shut up!

For everyone who wonders why I despise PETA. This is one of the reasons why! They spread lies about a Christian company that has done nothing but help women and battle breast cancer as well as domestic abuse!

Eat Meat? Well, then you must suck in bed.........says PETA!

Yeah, I'm sure she brings it.......
A new ad that is aired in time For Valentine's Day is the latest WA WA WAAAAAA moment in PETA's ad debacle. The ad warns about BWVAKTBOOMBoyfriend Went Vegan and Knocked the Bottom out of Me—which the ad describes as a "a painful condition that occurs when boyfriends go vegan and can suddenly bring it like a tantric porn star."
The ad, now available on, depicts a woman in a neck brace wearily but happily returning to her bedroom with a bag of vegetables for her boyfriend.
"BWVAKTBOOM is a very real risk—not only are vegans ready to bring it in the bedroom all night long, their compassion also makes them extra attractive to their partners," says PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange. "PETA is standing by to help anyone who wants—or needs—to meet their vegan boyfriend's level of performance."
PETA, here's a little secret........Vegetarians aren't the only ones who suffer from BWVAKTBOOM!  Now, you're telling every meat eater out there, that they suck in bed! Hmmmmm..... Another stunt that has failed miserably. PETA just keeps trying and trying.........AND FAILING HORRIBLY!  

 What happened to worrying about dolphins, and elephants, and whales. Try focusing on that. You were more liked then. I don't mind people promoting their point of views but when it collapses and falls into just sounding and looking stupid, yeah, you pretty much suck and embarrass yourself. Isn't that right little PETA, you fail? Huh? Yeahhh......

Josh Powell has incestous images on Computer

Before Josh Powell was going to try to win back custody of his children last week, Washington state authorities received materials from Utah police that had been discovered on a computer in Powell's home two years ago. Authorities say the images depicted "incestuous" sex and were disconcerting enough that they prompted a psychologist to recommend that Powell undergo an intensive psychosexual evaluation.
But a lawyer for Powell's in-laws, who had custody of the boys, wasn't invited to see the computer-generated materials before the custody hearing, even though a Utah judge had specified in a sealed court order that he was one of the few people allowed to see them.

"That would have absolutely given me the opportunity to submit a declaration about our deep concern. I was approved ... to view those pictures and I was never notified," Downing said. "I could have gone into all the reasons why the visitation could have or should have been restricted."

The images that were found were realistic computer-generated depictions of "incestuous" parent-child relations, therefore couldn't be deemed as child pornography since there were no real people involved.

Chuck Cox, Susan Powell's father, said the images were just another indicator of problems with Josh Powell. Cox said he did not know the details of the images. He believed the kids should have been fully taken away from Powell long ago and that they raised concerns about allowing him continued contact.
"How much does it take for them to figure out that he should not have the children?" he said. "It's just wrong. They needed to be taken out of that environment."

PETA says whales are slaves

SeaWorld has asked the court to dismiss a lawsuit filed by PETA that names five orcas as plaintiffs in the case.Um.....yeah.........
PETA claims the captured killer whales are treated like slaves for being forced to live in tanks and perform daily at its parks in San Diego and Orlando, Florida.
"This case is on the next frontier of civil rights," said PETA's attorney Jeffrey Kerr, representing the five orcas.
SeaWorld's attorney Theodore Shaw called the lawsuit a waste of the court's time and resources. He said it defies common sense and goes against 125 years of case law applied to the Constitution's 13th amendment that prohibits slavery between humans.
"With all due respect, the court does not have the authority to even consider this question," Shaw said, adding later: "Neither orcas nor any other animal were included in the 'We the people' ... when the Constitution was adopted."BAHAHA!!!.....Excuse me......cough....... He does have a point.
The court listened to both sides for an hour before announcing that he would take the case under advisement and issue his ruling at a later date. The judge raised doubts a court can allow animals to be plaintiffs in a lawsuit, and he questioned how far the implications of a favorable ruling could reach, pointing out the military's use of dolphins and scientists' experiments on whales in the wild.
Kerr acknowledged PETA faces an uphill battle but he said he was hopeful after Monday's hearing.

The issue is not about whether the animals have been subjected to abuse, the defense said. If the court were to grant orcas constitutional rights, Shaw warned the ruling would have profound implications that could impact everything from the way the U.S. government uses dogs to sniff out bombs and drugs to how zoos and aquariums operate.
"We're talking about hell unleashed," he said.
PETA said a ruling in its favor would only help to protect the orcas in the entertainment industry and other cases involving animals would have to be decided on their own merits.

Brushing animals off as property is the same argument that was used against African-Americans and women before their constitutional rights were protected, PETA says.
Shaw pointed out that argument does not translate because both women and African-Americans are people for which the Constitution was written to protect.
Miller did not specify when he would issue his ruling.

It is not known whether the Orcas will testify on their behalf.

Oh, PETA.....really?

Husband of missing woman blows up house, self, and two sons

Authorities say an explosion and fire Sunday at the Washington state home of Josh Powell, husband of missing Utah woman Susan Powell,  has killed him and his two children.

Emails Powell sent authorities seemed to confirm that Powell planned the deadly blast.
The explosion occurred just moments after a Child Protective Services worker brought the two boys to the home for a supervised visit, said Graham Fire and Rescue Chief Gary Franz.
"Everything we know right now, this has become a crime scene," Franz said.
Powell let the boys into his house, then blocked the social worker from entering. The social worker called her supervisors to report that she could smell gas, and the home exploded.
The social worker was reported as safe, but "very shook up," according to Sherry Hill, spokeswoman for the Department of Social and Health Services for Washington state.
Jeffrey Bassett, who represented Josh Powell in the custody case, said he received a three-word email from his client just minutes before Powell and his two boys died in a house explosion. It said, "I’m sorry, goodbye."

The email arrived at 12:05 p.m. Sunday, Washington time, about 10 minutes before the explosion, but he didn’t see until it two hours later, when others told him Josh and the boys had been killed.
Bassett said he knew Josh was upset after a judge last week ordered that Powell’s sons, Charlie, 7 and Braden, 5, remain in the custody of their grandparents, Chuck and Judy Cox. The judge also ordered Josh to undergo a psycho-sexual evaluation.
Josh Powell also was under investigation in the disappearance of his 28-year-old wife Susan Powell from their West Valley City home in December 2009.
Hill said her office had no idea that Powell had anything like this planned.
"We would have gone back to court had we any indication that Josh Powell was suicidal," Hill said.
She called the situation tragic.
