Boston police said that about 12:30 a.m. Sunday they received several complaints about a loud party at 28 Fleet St. in the North End.
Officers went to the noisy apartment and knocked on the door, police said.
After about 20 minutes, officers said the door opened. A woman later identified as Demar yelled an obscenity at the officers and then slammed the door shut on an officer’s shoulder, police said.
She then tried to escape from the apartment, saying, “I’m out of here. I’m a proud American,” according to police.
After a brief struggle, officers arrested Demar, police said. She allegedly told officers that she wanted them to know that her mother is an attorney.
Who knew Boston Police hated freedom almost as much as they hate black people? Crispus Attucks is rolling in his grave. Probably because he’s getting beat up by Sully from Southie.
Police should have free reign to go straight Rodney King on any child who drops “My [parent] is a lawyer/attorney”. There should be a charge for that nonsense. Any self-respecting lawyer knows better than to drop that mess when confronted by law enforcement. “Yeah that’s real good, law dog cause law don’t go round here.” Professors should include that nugget in Professional Responsibility class and it should be covered on the MPRE.
How great is it that Demar’s attorney “couldn’t make it to her court appearance”? Guess he and her mother had better things to do than cover for her chickenhead daughter.
Hill-Murray School football coach Mark Mauer was busted in a prostitution sting last week. He’s also the cousin of the Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer. The best part about this story is his excuse after getting arrested.
According to the police report, Mauer arrived at the hotel about 7:30 p.m. and met with a female undercover officer. Mauer verbally agreed to pay the woman $100 for a half-hour of “full service,” the report said.
Mauer then told the woman he left his money in the car and had to go get it, police said. He was arrested when he left the room. When questioned, Mauer reportedly told police he was just “messing around” and didn’t intend to return to the room.
According to the report, Mauer said “he has done this a couple times in the past, where he calls women and then leaves without doing anything.”
Police said he had with him $100 and a bottle of unmarked pills that Mauer said were Viagra, a prescription drug used to treat impotence.
Details are still emerging but at this time reports are that he mistook his girlfriend, model Reeva Steenkamp, for a burglar and shot her four times.
Police spokesman Katlego Mogale had earlier said: “A 26-year-old man had been taken into custody for shooting a 30-year-old woman.
“The deceased was shot four times and died on the scene. It is believed that she was the girlfriend of the accused.”
South African journalist Kalay Maistry told Sky News she believed his 30-year-old Steenkamp had come into the house to surprise him for Valentine’s Day.
“He thought his girlfriend, who had come in to try to surprise him for Valentine’s Day, was an intruder,” Maistry said. “I think what this actually highlights is the level of fear ordinary South Africans have.
“This is a man who has gone to bed, it’s an innocent surprise from a girlfriend… and the moment he thinks someone is trying to break in he grabs his gun. This has come as a complete surprise for a man who’s considered a national hero.”
Pistorius is best known for his fight to compete in the 2008 Olympics after initially being declared ineligible due to his prosthetic legs. He eventually became the first double amputee to compete in the Olympics in 2012.
“We should go to the range,” [Pistorius] said. He fetched his 9-millimeter handgun and two boxes of ammunition. We got back in the car and drove to a nearby firing range, where he instructed me on proper technique. Pistorius was a good coach. A couple of my shots got close to the bull’s-eye, which delighted him. “Maybe you should do this more,” he said. “If you practiced, I think you could be pretty deadly.” I asked him how often he came to the range. “Just sometimes when I can’t sleep,” he said.
Update 2: These tweets are from the past couple minutes.
South African police will be opposing bail for Oscar Pistorius and say there are “other witnesses” to the shooting.
Bart Simpson was right. Everything is backwards in Australia. Teams are forcing players to take injections against their will even to the point of forcing them to get them at “off-site” locations. It’s almost as if teams are renditioning their own players to black sites and pumping them full of “vitamin boost” injections.
The teams, which include two other Melbourne-based Aussie Rules teams besides Essendon, claim the injections contain vitamins B or C are legal. Players and anti-doping authorities suspect that they are actually taking peptide GHRP-6 which is similar to HGH and banned by the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority.
Some players insist the injections were nothing but vitamin supplements which helped them sleep at night and recover from injury. However other players were suspicious of the forced treatments. Some including current Essendon players met with the AFL Players Association after being forced to sign consent forms and confidentiality agreements.
That’s bad enough however the scandal goes from Aussie Rules through rugby league to organized crime syndicates. The Australian Crime Commission just concluded a year-long investigation and found the following:
Despite being prohibited substances in professional sport, peptides and hormones are being used by professional athletes in Australia, facilitated by sports scientists, highperformance coaches and sports staff. Widespread use of these substances has been identified, or is suspected by the ACC, in a number of professional sporting codes in Australia. In addition, the level of use of illicit drugs within some sporting codes is considered to be significantly higher than is recorded in official statistics.
The ACC has also identified that organised crime identities and groups are involved in the domestic distribution of PIEDs, which includes peptides and hormones. If left unchecked, it is likely that organised criminals will increase their presence in the distribution of peptides and hormones in Australia.
The ACC has identified significant integrity concerns within professional sports in Australia related to the use of prohibited substances by athletes and increasing associations of concern between professional athletes and criminal identities.
The entire report can be read here in PDF form. An HTML version should be available by February 15 as noted on the ACC website.
Several other substances besides GHRP-6 were named in the report as being discovered in the investigation however one name is a constant with every team caught up in the doping scandal.
A federal policeman told AFL chief executives that peptides and human growth hormone or its equivalents were ”flooding” into Australia and were often associated with gymnasiums with questionable connections.
The ACC report notes the infiltration of organized crime into unregulated markets as well as “legitimate businesses, contractors and consultants”. Drugs obtained through these connections which in turn might have led to the possibility of “match-fixing and manipulation of betting markets“.
Home Affairs and Justice Minister Jason Clare made a statement on the ACC report this morning.
There’s no telling what the fallout will be from this scandal which almost makes Victor Conte and BALCO look like AAA ball. The number of players and teams caught up in this could rock Australian sports to its core. There’s the possibility that teams wouldn’t be able to field full squads due to the amount of players who may be penalized for doping. The organized crime element takes the investigation to a new level especially if it moves towards match-fixing. Stay tuned.
Damn that post title was forced but I got it in there like a boss. Can I still say that or is that over like welp and yolo? Solid.
It’s one thing when scousers rob the houses of their favorite soccer players and managers but it’s another when they go straight Mexican cartel. Alder FC might want to get Billy Blanks to join their team for protection after things got a bit Zeta before a game.
An amateur footballer was gunned down by a gangland hitman in front of 150 spectators as he was warming up for a match with teammates.
Alan Jopson, 27, was doing stretch exercises just before kick-off at a playing field in Liverpool when the masked gunman calmly jogged on to the pitch and shot him in the legs.
The victim was hit three times in both legs and lay reeling in agony as the would-be assassin fled in a silver getaway car.
I imagine the gunman’s getaway looked a little something like this.
Police determined that the victim was the intended target but don’t have a motive. Well now they do. What’s the lesson here? Don’t freeball it while stretching in Liverpool. They’ll shoot ‘em if they can’t steal ‘em.
