In a bombshell allegation, Florida medical examiner Dr. Shiping Bao (pictured) claims that Florida state prosecutors were biased against Trayvon Martin and purposely threw the case, and he is suing the state for $100 million, reports WFTV.com.
According to Bao, the medical examiner, state attorney's office, and Sanford Police Department all felt that Martin "got what he deserved." Bao also claims that he received the strong, though subtle, message not to speak on certain things:
Nothing makes me angrier than an abusive man…
Especially one that just can’t let go…
Meet 29 year old, Brian McGhee of Tampa, Florida…
On July 23rd, around 8:00pm, McGhee pulled up to an apartment complex located on Del Lago Circle, the residence of his ex-girlfriend, 25 year old, Bianca McGaughey.
Residents of the apartment complex stated that as McGaughey walked up to McGhee, he began to stab her. He stabbed multiple times in the torso and neck and left her lying on the sidewalk. She died at the scene as a result of her injuries.
About 30 minutes after the stabbing was reported, McGhee updated the profile picture on his Facebook page of a cut arm with a bloody wound. Friends and family left messages for him to contact them and to do the right thing.
Investigators stated that McGhee and McGaughey had previously dated, but had stopped seeing each other a year ago. McGhee, however, had continued contact McGaughey.
McGhee was a large man. He stood 6’9, and weighed in at 275lbs.
McGhee began to wrestle professionally around 2006. He was known in the ring as DT Porter and DT Ruddick. McGhee was a developmental wrestler with World Wrestling Entertainment from 2010 to 2012, and also managed a pawn shop and a clothing store, both in St. Louis, according to his Facebook page.
A description of McGhee on his archived wrestling website states, ‘Once the oppressed, DT is the one now doing the enforcing. Determined to take out all of his childhood pain and torment out on the bodies of his opposition, DT lacks mercy, and will deliver great anger and furious vengeance on any who stand in his way.’
You can only imagine what McGaughey last moments were like.
The residents called police as McGhee fled the scene.
McGhee’s vehicle was spotted in Tampa and a pursuit involving Hillsborough deputies, the Florida Highway Patrol and Tampa Police Department ended near Interstate 75 and County Road 41 in Pasco County where the suspect’s vehicle crashed.
McGhee was transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa for treatment of injuries from the crash and apprehended after a short chase by a police dog.
McGhee has been booked into the Land O’Lakes Detention Center. He will be transported back to the Hillsborough County Jail at a later date. He will be charged with first-degree murder, said Pascal deputies.
It is not clear which body part is in the picture, but multiple reports are saying it is an arm. It is also not clear if it is McGhee or McGaughey is shown in the picture.
The picture’s posting caused confusion and concern among those that know McGhee, with some people urging him to contact them and others wanting to know what was happening.
Both McGhee and McGaughey are originally from St. Louis, MO, based on their Facebook pages, it is unclear if the two knew met in Florida or knew each other from back home.
This story should be seen as a lesson to anyone that has ever asked themselves the question, ‘Can I remain friends with my ex after the breakup?’
My advice is this, only YOU know how crazy your ex is.
Give it some time, because if they were infatuated with you, it’ll take them some time to get you out of the system.
Never let your ex know about your personal life after them. Friends are not concerned about your personal life, only you.
And if you are in a relationship and you think that your current love is a tad bit off, get out of the relationship…
Or I may be writing my next blog about YOU!
Remember, Jodie Arias’ boyfriend thought her quirkiness was cute.
And Chris Benoit’s wife thought Chris’ outbursts was just something men do.
Rest in paradise sweet Bianca…

The Paula Deen Express seems to be trucking straight into a deeper tunnel…
In new claims, Paula Deen has been accused of asking black kitchen workers to wear Aunt Jemima-style outfits while working in the same restaurant that made her a star.
Dora Charles, Deen’s longtime chef, claimed that African American staff were also asked to ring a bell while hollering ‘come and get it’ in a throwback to the past.
Charles also alleged that she was paid a measly $10 an hour and had to endure the TV chef using racist language around her.
Deen has already apologized for her use of the N-word…
Family, friends, and fans of Deen have been very vocal in their support of the Southern Cuisine Queen. But many (me included) are wondering how this new claim will effect her image.
Deen has been dropped by The Food Network along with corporate sponsors like Walmart, Home Depot, pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk and her book publisher.
Charles’ told the New York Times that she wanted to speak up now because she felt that the truth should come out about the woman who she once considered her ‘Soul Sister’.
For 22 years, Mrs. Charles was the queen of the Deen kitchens. She helped open the Lady & Sons, the restaurant here that made Ms. Deen’s career. She developed recipes, trained other cooks and made sure everything down to the collard greens tasted right.
“If it’s a Southern dish,” Ms. Deen once said, “you better not put it out unless it passes this woman’s tongue.”
Charles’ states, ‘It’s just time that everybody knows that Paula Deen don’t treat me the way they think she treat me’.
Charles met Deen while Deen was running a restaurant in a Best Western hotel when Charles, newly divorced and tired of fast-food kitchens, walked in and auditioned by cooking her version of Southern food. Deen hired her immediately.
Mrs. Charles attended Ms. Deen’s wedding. Sometimes Mrs. Charles appeared on the television shows as part of her day job. She also performed on Ms. Deen’s signature cruises, taking vacation time to do so, though her expenses were paid. She sometimes received clothes and other free goods that came along as Ms. Deen’s star rose.
Mrs. Charles’s family and friends even got jobs with Ms. Deen, including Ineata Jones, whom everyone called Jellyroll. She ended up as close to Ms. Deen as Mrs. Charles was.
Tension between the two ladies began when Deen asked Charles’ to prepare ‘hoecakes’ (my grandma made these…they are pancakes made from cornbread batter and served during dinner) and to ring a dinner bell in front of the restaurant, hollering for people to come and get it.
“I said, ‘I’m not ringing no bell,’ ” Mrs. Charles said. “That’s a symbol to me of what we used to do back in the day.”
Charles’ cousin Ineata ‘Jellyroll’ Jones took up the offer and her image as Aunt Jemima was sold on postcards in many of the Deen Souvenir Shops.
This story seemed to had fizzled out…
But now, here’s more gas…
She was asked to dress as Aunt Jemima?
I wonder how this will turn out…

What’s in the water down there in Florida?
Meet 25 year-old, Thomas Elliot Huggins, of Tampa, Florida.
On Thursday, June 27th, in his mother’s home on Astor Avenue North, Huggins strangled the family’s pit bull terrier mix, named Bandit, to death.
But that’s not ALL he did, according to the police reports, Huggins then proceeded to quarter Bandit off into more manageable parts.
After seasoning Bandit’s ribs and putting them on the stove to boil, he then proceeded to throw Bandit’s head in the trash. He placed the rest of the pet in freezer bags and stored her in the freezer ‘for future meals’.
When Huggins’ mother got home from work, she noticed the ribs boiling on the stove.
After seeing Bandit’s head on the trash, she asked her son what happened.
He told her that he strangled the dog with his bear hands as was cooking the pet for a meal.
Upon hearing her son’s story, she called the cops and turned him in.
Neighbor Nickola Davis said Huggins did not need to kill his dog for food.
“I’ve been to the food pantry, and the mother, I’ve seen her at the food pantry,” Davis said. “So I know they didn’t have to do that for food.”
Authorities charged Huggins with felony cruelty to animals. His bond is set at $2,000 according to arrest records.
There are days I’ve felt hunger so strong that I would’ve considered eating a dog…
But to actually do it?!
Oh my God!!
He sounds a little touched in the head, but what do you think his actual problem?

According to a very accurate source Foxy Brown the popular female rapper in the 90's and probably one of the 5 greatest female Emcees of all time has come out and made some shocking allegations about Jay-z. Now I must say before you read this story this has not been proven but I can't lie I have heard stories very similiar to this about Jay in the past.
And it has happened…
Jason Collins, 34, a center for the Washington Wizards, outed himself in a recent Sports Illustrated interview.
“I’m a 34-year-old NBA center,” Collin wrote in Sports Illustrated story announcing his sexuality. “I’m black. And I’m gay.
Many have speculated when a male pro athlete would reveal themselves, especially once so many athletes were outspoken against the idea.
The Daily News reports:
“I didn’t set out to be the first openly gay athlete playing in a major American team sport,” Collins adds. “But since I am, I’m happy to start the conversation. I wish I wasn’t the kid in the classroom raising his hand and saying, ‘I’m different.’ If I had my way, someone else would have already done this. Nobody has, which is why I’m raising my hand.”
Collins, who spent seven seasons with the Nets, says that he decided to come out of the closet because he was tired of worrying that somebody might suspect he was gay and was no longer willing to live a dishonest life.
“No one wants to live in fear,” Collins wrote in article he authored with Sports Illustrated’s Franz Lidz. “I’ve always been scared of saying the wrong thing. I don’t sleep well. I never have. But each time I tell another person, I feel stronger and sleep a little more soundly. It takes an enormous amount of energy to guard such a big secret. I’ve endured years of misery and gone to enormous lengths to live a lie. I was certain that my world would fall apart if anyone knew. And yet when I acknowledged my sexuality I felt whole for the first time. I still had the same sense of humor, I still had the same mannerisms and my friends still had my back.”
“The strain of hiding my sexuality became almost unbearable in March, when the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments for and against same-sex marriage,” he wrote. “Less then three miles from my apartment, nine jurists argued about my happiness and my future. Here was my chance to be heard, and I couldn’t say a thing. I didn’t want to answer questions and draw attention to myself. Not while I was still playing.”
“I’m a veteran, and I’ve earned the right to be heard,” Collins says. “I’ll lead by example and show that gay players are no different from straight ones. I’m not the loudest person in the room, but I’ll speak up when something isn’t right. And try to make everyone laugh.”
Collins has a very extensive career, though his numbers are not the best.
He played for the New Jersey Nets, Memphis Grizzlies, Minnesota Timberwolves, Atlanta Hawks, Boston Celtics, and is now playing for the Washington Wizards.
Hmmmm…I wonder will Nike contact him about their ‘openly gay athlete’ offer now?
I for one am for him…
Anyone that has this type of platform and choosing to use themselves as an example, has to be commended…
Women have dealt with gays in the locker room for years so men should pony up and deal with it too…
Gay people have the right to be whatever they want…
Their sexuality has nothing to do with their talents and who they are as people…
So for Jason Collins…YOU GO BOY!
