Florida Cops Open Fire On Unarmed Man In Front Of His Home – 60 year old Roy Middleton was outside of his home when two sherriff’s deputies from the small town of Warrington in Florida opened fire on him. The officers were responding to a burglary call when they saw Middleton looking around in his mother’s car (he was searching for a cigarette). A neighbor who didn’t recognize Middleton from the community called the police thinking that he was a thief. The officers ordered Middleton out of the car, and he complied but regardless they shot him. Middleton said, “It was like a firing squad. Bullets were flying everywhere.” Luckily Middleton only got shot in the leg and his injuries were not life threatening. A witness said that Middleton didn’t resist in anyway and she couldn’t understand why the weapons were used. The incident is being investigated and the two officers are on paid leave.

Sharon Osbourne Says Kanye West Should Be A Car Salesman & Slanders Justin Bieber – Sharon Osbourne clearly had to get some things off her chest and Kanye West and Justin Beiber were her targets of choice. During a recent interview when asked her opinion on West she said, “I have no time for him. He bores me. I said it on the show, he’s an average-looking man with an average talent, but he’s a great salesman. He should sell cars because they would f-ckin’ fly out the door. He’s his No. 1 fan.” Ouch. When asked about the Beibs she said, “I feel really bad for him. There’s this little kid with a huge dream, he’s cute, girls love him, and he wants to be a mean boy, and he’s about as mean as a f-ckin’ kitten, and he’s trying to act out. It’s like pissing in a bucket. It’s like, “Oh, we’re the bad boys!” F-ck off! You don’t know what bad is. And I think that he’s lost, I really do. I think he doesn’t realize he’s white and not black, that’s a huge problem. And, at the point he’s at in his career, it’s so dangerous because we’ve seen it all before a million times. Where do you go when you’re a child entertainer and then you want to transition to be a man? Very few make it.” That whole “he doesn’t realize he’s white” statement is kind of suspect though.
