Sucker Punch on Dancer
GETS MAN CHARGED WITH 2 FELONIES
The victim's mom, Stephanie Hagler, tells TMZ ... she hopes once Moore's arrested, nobody posts his bail. In a perfect world, Moore wouldn't get bail. That being said, she says, "I appreciate the police department for taking the case so seriously, and I know my son appreciates it too. I don't think I will feel any relief until he is arrested. As of now it's just words on paper there hasn't been any real consequence."
The man who shot the video, Micheal Curry, tells us Moore MUST be arrested because "anyone who's willing to hit a kid like that, there's no telling what they're going to do next."
The scumbag who sucker punched a 12-year-old boy dancing on a sidewalk has been charged with 2 felonies, but cops are still searching for him.

Mayor Lightfoot calls violence against the city’s children personal, as one person is charged in weekend shooting death of 7-year-old girl
Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Monday said she wants “all of us to feel this loss” after another weekend of violence in Chicago yet again took a toll on the city’s children, including the killing of a 7-year-old girl.
Lightfoot said she outlined an “all hands on deck” strategy on Thursday to head off another weekend of bloodshed, a plan that included police and street outreach groups. And yet, “we still saw a four-day weekend of 87 Chicagoans shot, 17 Chicagoans killed, and two of them children. Our children,” the mayor said at a news briefing.

Bishop: North Carolina priest kept on leave on abuse claims
A Catholic priest in North Carolina will remain on administrative leave after allegations of sexual abuse against him were revealed last year, the Charlotte diocese's bishop said.
Bishop Peter Jugis made the announcement to St. Matthew parishioners in a letter Wednesday, writing that he had accepted the recommendation of the diocese’s Lay Review Board to keep the Rev. Patrick Hoare out of ministry, The Charlotte Observer reported.
Hoare was originally put on administrative leave in December after the diocese received “an allegation against him of child sexual abuse that was said to have occurred in Pennsylvania more than 25 years ago, before Father Hoare entered ministry” the Charlotte Observer quoted Jugis as writing.

Tragedy of the teen killed by CHOP security revealed: Homeless 16-year-old's friend reveals he drove the stolen Jeep into the 'cop-free' zone for safety and then told her on the phone: 'I don't want to die'
The 16-year-old boy who was shot dead by CHOP security in Seattle was homeless and had just carjacked a Jeep when he was told by a friend to drive to the cop-free zone 'for safety', DailyMail.com can reveal.
Antonio Mays Jr died in a hail of bullets in the early hours of Monday morning and his passenger, a 14-year-old, was critically injured after armed security guards fired on their white Jeep Cherokee, which crashed into the barriers of the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP) security zone.
Ciara Walker, 25, described the two boys as her 'street brothers' and said Mays Jr and the other teen had been living with her and her husband in a tent at the nearby Cal Anderson Park, located just outside the CHOP zone.
Walker revealed she was on the phone with the boys when they were shot, saying: 'The last thing I heard was a crash and pop pop pop, I’m not sure who said what, but one of them said, '''Ah s**t I’m hit, I don’t wanna die.'' Then the phone went dead.'

‘They Just Dumped Him Like Trash’: Nursing Homes Evict Vulnerable Residents
On a chilly afternoon in April, Los Angeles police found an old, disoriented man crumpled on a Koreatown sidewalk.
Several days earlier, RC Kendrick, an 88-year-old with dementia, was living at Lakeview Terrace, a nursing home with a history of regulatory problems. His family had placed him there to make sure he got round-the-clock care after his condition deteriorated and he began disappearing for days at a time.
But on April 6, the nursing home deposited Mr. Kendrick at an unregulated boardinghouse — without bothering to inform his family. Less than 24 hours later, Mr. Kendrick was wandering the city alone.
According to three Lakeview employees, Mr. Kendrick’s ouster came as the nursing home was telling staff members to try to clear out less-profitable residents to make room for a new class of customers who would generate more revenue: patients with Covid-19.
Son of retired police officer killed in St. Louis looting has message for person who pulled trigger
The son of a retired St. Louis police captain who was killed during looting sparked by the death of George Floyd has a message for the person who pulled the trigger: “just step back from what you are doing.”
Brian Powell made the remark to Fox2Now after David Dorn, 77, was gunned down early Tuesday while working as security for Lee’s Pawn Shop and Jewelry. Around 4 a.m. that morning, Powell said his brother – who was crying – called him to inform of him of his father’s death, leaving a "numbing feeling that came over my body.”
“The person who pulled the trigger, my message to them would just simply be, just step back from what you’re doing.

The Democratic silence on antifa is dangerous
There is a disturbing silence from leaders of the Democratic Party over those gangs of black-masked leftist thugs shutting down free speech and beating people to the ground with clubs at Berkeley.
We've seen such leftist violence before, and we saw it again just the other day at a protest in Berkeley, when the city police backed off and the thugs who call themselves antifa swarmed peaceful protesters of the right.
It's all over the internet, young men of the hard left in black masks, black gloves, armed with clubs, hunting down prey who dare speak their minds.
What's striking about all this is the silence.
Despite lockdown orders, murder rates are rising in cities across America
The Police Executive Research Forum examined data on crime in 30 US cities for the period from March 16 to April 12. The law enforcement think tank found that murders increased in nine cities over the same four-week period last year.
Nashville reported the biggest bump, a 233% increase, from 4 homicides in 2019 to 14 in 2020.
Often "the victims and suspects knew or likely knew each other, or had been engaged in some type of dispute," Metropolitan Nashville Police Department spokesperson Don Aaron told Insider.
The PERF report also found varying increases in Baltimore; San Diego; Denver; Detroit; New Rochelle, New York; Charleston, South Carolina; Newark, New Jersey; and Prince George's County, Maryland.
Cities not included in the study have also seen spikes.
New York City reported 67% more homicides in April 2020 than April 2019, an "incredibly troubling" number of which resulted from domestic violence, NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea told 1010 WINS.

One in three gay men feel unsafe at home during coronavirus
Almost a third of gay and bisexual men report feeling vulnerable at home during the new coronavirus pandemic, with Brazilians particularly concerned, a global survey found on Tuesday, highlighting its wider mental health impacts.
According to research conducted by the U.S.-based gay social network Hornet for the Thomson Reuters Foundation, 30% of almost 3,500 respondents, which included transgender men, said they felt physically or emotionally unsafe in their own homes.
"Think of how it feels to be 21 years old and living with a family that is unsupportive and constantly haranguing you about marrying a woman," said Alex Garner, senior health innovation strategist at Hornet.

Survivors of Nigeria's 'baby factories' share their stories
Aunty Kiki took them to a compound where she handed them over to an elderly woman she called "Mma" and told the girls to do whatever the woman asked of them.
"The compound had two flats of three bedrooms each, filled with young girls, some of them pregnant," says Miriam. "Aunty Kiki said it was where we'd be working."
At first, the girls thought their jobs were to clean the compound and do household chores as Aunty Kiki had led them to believe. Their new employers, however, had other ideas.
"Mma asked that we stay alone in separate rooms for that first night," Miriam explains. "We were surprised because the other girls in the compound were sharing rooms, some of which had four people in them."
Late that night, according to Miriam, a man walked into her room, ordered her to take off her clothes, held her hands tightly, and raped her.
The same thing happened to Roda, but her rapist was much more brutal.
Inside the twisted world of ‘rapist’ designer Peter Nygard: book
Peter Nygard, the flamboyant Canadian fashion mogul, built a nearly billion-dollar fortune hawking slacks and blouses at Sears, Walmart and his own store in Times Square. Known as a hard-partying Peter Pan, the man Forbes dubbed “The Polyester Phenom” was often surrounded by young women and threw legendary parties at his homes in the Bahamas and Los Angeles.
But it all came to a halt in February when the FBI raided Nygard’s Manhattan office. The bust came just a week after 10 unidentified women filed a federal lawsuit accusing the 78-year-old of a “decades-long sex-trafficking scheme” in which he “recruited, lured, and enticed young, impressionable and often impoverished children and women, with cash payments and false promises of lucrative modeling opportunities” — only to, allegedly, sexually assault and rape them. On April 22, 36 more women joined a class-action complaint against Nygard.
Omar Sharif Jr: COVID-19 Has Super-Charged LGBTQ Marginalization
For generations, LGBTQ people around the globe have suffered the repressive isolation that comes from living in the closet. Locked away we were afraid to live our full and authentic lives, we held captive our innermost emotions and desires, and we feared the repercussions of coming out.
Today, one-third of the world’s population is under some form of lockdown; the consequences of coming out are just too severe. A certain degree of loneliness, desperation, and anxiety has become many of our realities. You just wish you could embrace the one you love after being denied for six weeks, try waiting 10-plus years. Quarantine is a closet that we now all share.
Today we are all in the same boat. And still today, LGBTQ people are disproportionally affected. If COVID-19 was the Titanic, LGBTQ people would be on the lower decks. The LGBTQ community has a higher percentage of underlying medical conditions among its population. LGBTQ people are more likely to live in poverty and lack access to adequate healthcare, medical leave and other basic necessities. The LGBTQ population uses tobacco 50 percent more than the general population, which could makes one’s prognosis considerably worse. To add insult to injury, LGBTQ people continue to face discrimination in many healthcare settings across the country.
