Cameroonian Footballer Dies After Being Hit By Thrown Object From Stands.
Tragic news as reports confirm the death of Cameroonian striker Albert Ebossé, 24, after being struck by an object thrown by spectators during a match between his team JS Kabylie and USM Alger in Tizi Ouzou in Algeria.
Ebossé had scored a goal leading to his club’s victory over Tizi Ouzou and was hit at the end of the game when players were making their way to their changing rooms. He was rushed to hospital but was later declared dead.
It is unclear what the object was that hit him but some local newspapers reported that fans of the losing side had thrown rocks at Ebossé and teammates in anger. After having signed with JS Kabylie in July 2013, Ebossé became the leading scorer in the Algerian league during the 2013-14 season with a total of 17 goals.
An investigation is due to be carried out into the circumstances surrounding his death by the Ministry of Interior and Local Government.
Such a tragic and unnecessary loss. Our deepest condolences to his family and friends.

What fucks me up about the Darren Wilson fundraiser is that he hasn’t been charged with a crime. He doesn’t have to hire a lawyer. He’s on paid leave, so he’s not losing wages. This is not covering his expenses, because he doesn’t have any additional expenses. This is a reward. He’s getting a $250,000 reward for murdering an unarmed black kid, two days away from starting college, in broad daylight.

Cash raised for killer Mo. cop now surpasses Michael Brown donations
August 24, 2014

Online fundraisers for Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson surpassed the amount of money raised for Michael Brown’s family as the officer’s supporters gathered at an afternoon rally Saturday.

Supporters of Wilson, the police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., came toBarney’s Sports Pub in south St. Louis.

"Many of us have received death threats toward ourselves and our families," said one speaker, wearing sunglasses, paint beneath her eyes and a baseball cap. "We will not hide. We will no longer live in fear … If you support Darren Wilson, make your voices heard."

She refused to give the media her name, saying “You want my name? I am Darren Wilson. We are Darren Wilson.

The media has shown a strong bias against Wilson supporters, the speaker said, drawing loud applause from the crowd.

"We share the united belief that officer Wilson’s actions on Aug. 9 were warranted and justified and he has our unwavering support," the woman said.

A crowd-funding page created for Wilson raised $235,010 from 5,902 people before organizers stopped accepting donations Friday after surpassing their goal of $100,000 in four days. The group then opened a new fundraising page, which already has more than $104,000.

This amount surpasses the more than $214,000 raised in support of the Michael Brown Memorial Fund. According to the page, which was set up by Brown family lawyer Benjamin Crump, “the funds will assist his family with costs that they will acquire as they seek justice on Michael’s behalf.”

The Support Darren Wilson group, which has more than 58,000 likes on Facebook, encouraged supporters who could not attend the rally to “blow up some Twitter accounts” with photos of supporters and the hashtag #‎iamdarrenwilson.

Disheartening (though unsurprising) and thoroughly disgusting!

White American Brutally Assaults Korean Man in a Hate Crime


Shoreline, Washington, USA —
A Korean man, Jae Kang Lee, was beaten and dragged into busy Ballinger Way in Shoreline on October 26. Police said the only motivation for the attack appeared to be the victim’s race.
They arrested Dion Packard of Arlington and charged him with malicious harassment and assault. Eyewitnesses said the beating was unprovoked. Michael Alford was pumping gas when he noticed the attack at a bus stop just 30 feet away.
He said Packard slammed Lee’s head into the bus stop pole and then the man collapsed and Packard started kicking him. The eyewitness said, “It became very scary, very quickly. He said Packard grabbed his victim around the neck and pulled him into Ballinger Way.
Alford said, "It looked to me like he was going to actually throw him into the oncoming traffic." Alford ran out onto the street, waved his arms and said “stop, stop.” Two other bystanders joined him to stop the beating and that’s when the attacker started to protest. According to Alford, he said, "Why are you helping him? Don’t you know this man’s Japanese? Don’t you know what we did for them in Vietnam?"
