Customer Kills A Would Be Walgreens Robber

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ARTICLE:
A 32-year-old Omaha man planned only to pick up a prescription and buy ice cream when he went to his local Walgreens in the Benson neighborhood.

Instead, Harry J. McCullough III shot a would-be-robber, 18-year-old Marquail Thomas, to death.

Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine said Tuesday afternoon that McCullough's use of deadly force was “appropriate and justified” and that he would not be charged in the slaying.

“There's no question that he had the right to defend himself and protect the lives of the others in the store,” Kleine said.

Nebraska law allows an individual to use force when his life or another person's life is threatened.

However, McCullough was ticketed by police for carrying a concealed weapon, a misdemeanor.

He had a permit to carry a loaded handgun in plain view for example, in a holster but he did not have a concealed weapons permit, said Omaha Police Officer Jacob Bettin.

McCullough pulled his handgun from the waistband of his pants before he shot Thomas, authorities said.

Kleine said civilians normally shouldn't put their lives at risk to prevent a crime. However, “if someone feels threatened,” he said, “they have the right to defend themselves.”

No one else in the store was injured.

Mark Bohaty, a firearms instructor in Bruno, Neb., said he didn't know the details of what happened in the Walgreens store.

Bohaty said he teaches students that using lethal force cannot be a gun carrier's first option when threatened.

“It is truly a last-resort type of thing,” he said. “The threat needs to be real, immediate, and they must be convinced that if they don't use deadly force, they are going to suffer critical injury or death as a result of the threat against them” or against a family member or a stranger.

Bohaty said people must use their judgment on whether lethal force is appropriate.

“There's no pat answer,” he said.

Police said two masked men entered the Walgreens at 6101 Northwest Radial shortly before 9 p.m. Monday.

McCullough declined a request for an interview when contacted by The World-Herald o Wednesday.

He had just made his purchase and was placing his credit card back into his wallet, said his lawyer, James Martin Davis.

One of the robbers, identified as Thomas, pointed a short shotgun in the direction of the cash register, where several customers were standing in line and told them not to move.

Davis said his client was armed with a .40-caliber pistol and fired after Thomas put the shotgun against the back of a woman using the ATM near the store entrance.

Davis said McCullough described Thomas' weapon as a Remington 870 sawed-off shotgun that holds five rounds. Kleine said the shotgun was not loaded.

Thomas dropped the shotgun and fled from the store, but he collapsed outside.

The second man, 17-year-old Angelo Douglas, scurried to the back of the store. McCullough chased him down, dragged him to the front of the store at gunpoint and held him until police arrived, Davis said.

Police were still looking for a getaway driver.

Robert Elfinger, a spokesman for Walgreens, said the store is cooperating with police and declined to comment further. The store reopened at 8 a.m. Tuesday.

Davis said McCullough has held several security jobs, which was why he frequently carries his weapon.

McCullough worked in security at the College of Saint Mary from April to October in 2008, a human resources employee at the college said. He currently is employed by the Nebraska Medical Center, Davis said, but not as a security officer.

McCullough was convicted of carrying a concealed weapon in 1997. Davis said that case involved a knife. He was convicted of driving under the influence in Washington County in 2006.

Douglas was charged Wednesday with attempted robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery and weapon use.

If convicted, Douglas would face up to 120 years in prison — 20 years on the attempted robbery, and 50 each on the conspiracy and weapons charges.

Kleine said he charged Douglas with the weapons count because, authorities allege, he took part in a crime in which a gun was used. He is being held at the Douglas County Youth Center.

Douglas has no serious criminal record, other than misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and obstruction of law. Those charges were transferred to juvenile court in March.

Thomas was convicted earlier this month in Douglas County Court of obstructing the law and served three days in jail. He also was convicted of possessing an ounce or less of marijuana in Douglas County in December.

It was almost exactly a year ago April 29, 2009 that Thomas was shot when two males approached a crowd near 21st and Evans Street and opened fire.

These 30 for 30 documentaries have been some of the best TV I've seen in a long time. Ricky is a different type of dude. He's always been that way. I'm eager to see how they paint this picture when profiling his off-the-field exploits with his yoga, social-anxiety, weed, photography, all his kids...airs tomorrow it's gonna be interesting.

Eminem's New Music Will 'Surprise A Lot Of People,' Just Blaze Says

0

Category:

What I'm hoping for most is that he drops that stupid ass Borat sounding voice. Hopefully we hear the Em that killed "Forever" and the B.E.T Award Cypher.


ARTICLE via MTV:
It seems like the only time Just Blaze isn't in the sky these days is when he's working. Blaze has been DJing at places like the Winter Music Conference when he isn't busy traveling back and forth and producing for people such as Jay Electronica and Eminem.

"I'm working on Eminem's album still, so I've gotta hurry up and get back to Detroit," Just said. He was fresh off the turntables at club Grand Central during the Fool's Gold party in Miami, where he spun a two-hour house set. "I've been back and forth — Detroit, New York, Detroit, New York, Miami, back to Detroit — for like the past two and a half weeks. [The album], it's getting there, but we still got a lot of work. So I wish I could stay [in Miami] longer."
Blaze says he's sworn not to reveal too much about Eminem's album, but he's already calling it a classic, one of the ultimate efforts in Slim Shady's storied catalog.

"As far as what's going on in Detroit, a lot of good music is being made," Blaze said of Em. "He's really back spitting. The wordplay is crazy, the metaphors are crazy. He's really back on his game. He had his ups, he had his downs, he's back way, way, way up. This is definitely going to be up there with the best of his albums, for sure, for sure. The fact that he's branched out working with a lot of different people now, collaborating in a lot of different ways that he never has before, I think he's going to surprise a lot of people."

Other than Em, Blaze has Jay Electronica on his plate, but what about the super-producer linking back with the other Jay, as in Young Hova? Just says he talked to the Jiggaman right before the U.S. leg of the Blueprint 3 tour ended.

"Maybe," he answered with a sly grin about whether or not he and rap's G.O.A.T. would collaborate again. "You never know."

Famous Last Meals

0

Category:


The last meal is a customary part of a condemned prisoner's last day. The day before the appointed time of execution, the prisoner will be given the meal, as well as religious rights, if he or she desires. As a general rule, inmates may not ask for an alcoholic drink as it dulls the senses.

In many countries the prisoner may have the luxury of selecting what the last meal will be (within reason), and the authorities do their best to provide a prisoner with the requested meal. This would honestly be a long decision for me. I am pretty sure that I would include a Chipotle burrito in my meal. I stumbled upon this yesterday and here's a list of them:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Adolf Eichmann: He declined a special meal, preferring a bottle of Carmel, a dry red Israeli wine. He drank about half of it.

Aileen Wuornos: She declined a special meal, but had a hamburger and other snack food from the prison's canteen. Later, she drank a cup of coffee.

Allen Lee Davis: 350-pound "Tiny" Davis had the following last meal: one lobster tail, fried potatoes, a half-pound of fried shrimp, six ounces of fried clams, half a loaf of garlic bread, and 32 ounces of A&W root beer.

Ángel Nieves Díaz: He declined a special meal. He was then served the regular prison meal for that day, but he declined that as well.

Bruno Richard Hauptmann: Celery, olives, chicken, french fries, buttered peas, cherries, and a slice of cake.

Dennis Wayne Bagwell: Medium rare steak with A1 Steak Sauce, fried chicken breasts and thighs, BBQ ribs, French fries, onion rings, bacon, scrambled eggs with onions, fried potatoes with onions, sliced tomatoes, salad with ranch dressing, two hamburgers, peach pie, milk, coffee, and iced tea with real sugar.

Desmond Keith Carter: He declined a special meal, but had two cheeseburgers, a steak sub, and two Cokes from the prison canteen, for which he paid $4.20 from his prison account.

Dobie Gillis Williams: Twelve candy bars and some ice cream.

Edward Hartman: A Greek salad, linguini with white clam sauce, cheese cake with cherry topping, garlic bread, and a Coke.

Gary Gilmore: A hamburger, hard-boiled eggs, a baked potato, a few cups of coffee, and three shots of whiskey.

Gary M. Heidnik: Two slices of a cheese pizza and two cups of black coffee.

Henry Martinez Porter: Flour tortillas, T-bone steak, refried beans, tossed salad, jalapeño peppers, ice cream, and chocolate cake.

James Edward Smith: A lump of dirt, denied. Settled for a small cup of yogurt.

John Wayne Gacy: A dozen deep-fried shrimps, a bucket of original recipe chicken from KFC, French fries, and a pound of strawberries.

Karl Eugene Chamberlain: A variety of fresh fruit and vegetables, cheese, lunch meat, deviled, six fried cheese-stuffed jalapenos, a chef salad with ranch dressing, onion rings, french fries, a cheesburger, two fried chicken breasts, barbecue pork rolls, an omelet, milk and orange juice.

Karla Faye Tucker: Banana, peach, and garden salad with ranch dressing.

Mark Dean Schwab: fried eggs, bacon, sausage links, hash browns, buttered toast and a quart of chocolate milk .

Perry Smith and Richard Hickock: Shrimp, French fries, garlic bread, ice cream, and strawberries with whipped cream.

Philip Workman: He declined a special meal for himself, but he asked for a large vegetarial pizza to be given to a homeless person in Nashville, Tennessee. This request was denied.

Rainey Bethea: Fried chicken, pork chops, mashed potatoes, pickled cucumbers, cornbread, lemon pie, and ice cream.

Ringer Edwards: chicken and beer. Edwards escaped execution as a Japanese prisoner of war when his meal request could not be obtained.

Robert Alton Harris: A 21-piece bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken, two large Domino's pizzas (no anchovies), ice cream, a bag of jelly beans, a six-pack of Pepsi, and a pack of Camel cigarettes.

Ted Bundy: He declined a special meal, so he was given the traditional steak (medium-rare), eggs (over-easy), hash browns, toast, milk, coffee, juice, butter, and jelly.

Timothy McVeigh: Two pints of mint chocolate-chip ice cream.

Velma Barfield: She declined a special meal, having a bag of Cheez Doodles and a can of Coca-Cola instead.

Victor Feguer: A single olive with the pit still in it.

Wesley Baker: Breaded fish, pasta marinara, green beans, orange fruit punch, bread, and milk (Maryland execution: this was what was on the prison menu that day).

William Bonin: Two pepperoni and sausage pizzas, three servings of chocolate ice cream, and fifteen cans of Coca-Cola.

Saddam Hussein: Unconfirmed - Sources say he ate boiled chicken and rice, and drank hot water with honey the day before his execution. The Times (UK) states that "he refused their offers of cigarettes and a last meal of chicken."

Nas went to court Monday over his divorce with Kelis -- and walked out a little lighter in the wallet.

According to documents filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Nas had to immediately fork over $47,249.42 in back child support and $40,454 in back spousal support.

The judge also ordered Nas to pay $10,000/month in spousal support until he pays off the $299,015.50 he owes Kelis.

Nas also has to pay 90% of Kelis' legal fees in the amount of $155,787.28.

Lastly, Nas has to pay $48,549.83 to cover Kelis' accounting expenses.

The lesson, as always -- when Laura Wasser reps your ex, settle as quickly as possible. Nas just learned that the hard way.

Santonio Holmes Traded To The Jets

Why does the rest of the league continue to let the Jets get so much better? In one off-season they have signed Antonio Cromartie to go alongside Darrelle Revis for the best corner duo in the league, sign LT who will serve as a great backup RB, and now they get the Super Bowl MVP from 2 years ago to pair opposite of Braylon Edwards and now Jerricho Cotchery can move to the slot? The Jets are going to be a FORCE this season, and with Sanchez's development combined with his new weapons, the Jets will truly be #Winnin!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ARTICLE via ESPN:
Receiver Santonio Holmes, who was traded to the New York Jets on Sunday from the Pittsburgh Steelers, will be suspended for the first four games of the 2010 season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, a source confirmed to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

The Jets acquired the talented but troubled receiver from the Steelers for a fifth-round pick in this month's draft. ESPN 1050 in New York first reported the trade, which Jets owner Woody Johnson publicly confirmed on Monday at the team's camp in Cortland, N.Y.

"He's known by members of the team," Johnson said. "Everybody has a lot of respect for him. He's tough. He's a clutch receiver. I don't think pressure gets to him in a game. We were happy to start this [relationship]."

Holmes is heading to New York Monday morning to take a physical, sources told ESPN. He will then will meet with Jets officials before the trade is officially announced.

No news conference is expected on Monday.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported on Monday that according to sources, the Steelers were prepared to release Holmes had they not been able to trade him.

Holmes will have to wait to get on the field. On Saturday, ProFootballTalk.com first reported Holmes was facing a suspension. The Web site reported it was unknown whether Holmes tested positive for a prohibited substance or committed some other violation of the policy, such as missing a required test, and that the Holmes' appeal process had not been finalized.

Schefter's source told him on Monday that although the four-game suspension has not officially been announced by the NFL, it has been finalized.

Holmes, the 2009 Super Bowl MVP, gives second-year quarterback Mark Sanchez another big-time target to throw to in an offense that already included receivers Braylon Edwards, Jerricho Cotchery, promising tight end Dustin Keller and recently signed running back LaDainian Tomlinson.

ARTICLE via Nicekicks:
If you recall, Nike Basketball constructed a Nike Zoom Kobe V ID contest in which the winning design would be worn by Kobe Bryant in a game this year. The contest, which began on March 2nd and ended on March 9th, was won by Kobe fan Jason Hamilton AKA “Kid Hollywood”. Check out today’s Kicks On Court to see Hamilton’s design on Kobe and some of the Lakers’ feet.

In a down-to-the-wire loss to the Portland TrailBlazers, Kobe Bryant and a few of his teammates wore NikeiD contest winner Kid Hollywood’s fantastic Kobe V design. Sticking with the Lakers alternate jersey color scheme, Hollywood applied a primarily white-colored base with minimal yellow and purple hints on the base. However, the most glaring attributes on this shoe lie in the form of the multiple metallic silver hints throughout the shoe. We must applaud Kid Hollywood for this nice, unique, highly-detailed Kobe V color design. Is this one of, if not the best Kobe V yet?

If you're a real fan of hip hop, like him or not you know how talented Kanye is. I think Kanye appeals to a broader audience moreso than any other rapper, meaning people outside the hip hop world can find parts of his albums that they like. To me this is easily the most anticipated album in recent times, especially given what Kanye's been going through in the media of late. I think we're gonna be getting that introspective Kanye from College Dropout, and the production is guaranteed to be CRAZY!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ARTICLE:
Hip-Hop pioneer DJ Premier recently weighed in on Kanye West's upcoming Good A** Job album and called the rapper's solo project "hard beats and rhyme."

Based off a recent interview, Premo also credits Yeezy for bringing back the popularity of sampling old records.

"Well, first of all, if you look at all of Kanye West's output, he actually did a lot to bring back sampling and make it cool again, even though he's more of a mainstream artist" Premier explained. "But his new album is strictly hard beats and rhyme. He's totally done with electro. You're gonna be surprised what you hear." (Amajanese)

Fellow hip-hop pioneer Pete Rock recently confirmed being in the studio with Ye.

"I mean, I'm working with him," Rock told radio host Peter Rosenberg. "That's all I can say is that I'm working with him. I went out [to Hawaii.] It's beautiful man, like, he just feels like a little brother to me. You know what I'm saying? Like, my little brother that's doing it. And we got along just fine. He's definitely hip-hop, his roots, I was testing him on joints...He takes it to another level which is dope. He had these musicians and this song, they played around my little raggedy beat and made it real [big]. I love the way he works -- he goes from one room, writing rhymes then goes to another beat and goes to another room and does something else -- I love what he's done, I always thought he was clever. I used to bug out over the ego thing but once you get to know him, it's like 'Oh, okay, he's a sweetheart.' [laughs] We got along just well." (Noisemakers)

Rap veteran Q-Tip also revealed his involvement on West's album.

"I just try to work with people who I admire or whom I think has got it," he revealed in an interview. "So right now I'm working on Nas' sh*t, about to work with Kanye on his sh*t. Just trying to keep up my momentum. I'm about to work with Talib [Kweli] on his project. I been trying to work with [Jay-Z] for a while so hopefully he'll realize the heat I got and come with it [laughs]." (Brooklyn Bodega)

According to new reports, the follow-up to 2008's 808's & Heartbreak is coming out in June.

Kanye West is ensconced in his Diamond Head, Hawaii home and recording studio, putting the final touches on his forthcoming album with guest rappers like Q-Tip, RZA and Pete Rock, numerous reports have confirmed. A source close to the project -- which is tentatively titled "Good A** Job" according to G.O.O.D. Music artist Big Sean -- says it will be released in June. (Billboard)
