Detroit Police Chief Says Will ‘Throw Her A Goodbye Party’ After Rep. Tlaib ‘Reckless’ Comments

In an interview with local news station WJBK Fox 2 in Detroit, Detroit police Chief James Craig had some serious words about Representative Rashida Tlaib’s “reckless and disgusting” comments. “When you look at reckless comments made by those who sit, and I won’ say sit in seats of leadership; I don’t use leadership loosely. But who sits in elected seats of influence, and you make reckless, disgusting comments that do nothing but inflame tensions; that’s not being responsible. That’s not leadership.”

As Chief Craig was making his comments, Fox 2 put one of Rashia Tlaib’s tweets on screen that read: “it wasn’t an accident. Policing in our country is inherently & intentionally racist. Daunte Wright was met with aggression & violence. I am done with those who condone government-funded murder. No more policing, incarceration, and militarization, It can’t be reformed.”

The Fox 2 segment then aired a clip of Tlaib what appeared to be amongst protesters where she stated, “and to say that you can police away homelessness, to police away poverty, to police away all these ills in our country right now, that’s not the way to approach it; I’m done.”

Tlaib continued, “The structure in place for policing has left more, more of our Black neighbors and brown communities feeling so incredibly unsafe, and it’s unfair, there’s no accountability. Instead, they’re faced with ya know, just a number of militarization and criminalization.”

Chief Craig responded, “you know what? If I made comments on par with her they’d be calling for my resignation. The news anchor then asks Craig “should Rashida Tlaib resign?” Craig answered, “I would love if she would resign, I’d throw her a goodbye party. I’d have the party Charlie; I’ll throw her a party, let her go.”

Craig continued, “who is she speaking for, Charlie? Let me just say this; when you talk about abolishing police, incarceration, you talk about safe cities, what do you think the residents in Detroit want? I know, I speak with them.” Going back to Tlaib’s comments insinuating she does not speak to directly to the community as does Chief Craig, he added once again that her comments are “reckless, Charlie. So, is she truly representing the people or is she representing a fringe group?”

    Rashida Taliban says that about police all the while spending big money on her private security detail.

    She uses off duty police officers to protect her while she demeans officers! What a hypocrite! Where are these thugs parents? It’s their responsibility and should be charged with child neglect!

    Still remember her taking campaign money for her personal expenses not related to the campaign. No accountability..Omar and AOC did the same.

    These people are disgraceful! I hope something happens soon. We’ve had nothing but disruption and disgrace in our country since this administration began running for office last year. I can’t believe there are still people who support this crap. Just go on Twitter and that’s all you see. Very disturbing.

Shaq Denounces ‘Celebrity-Ness’ Says They are ‘Out of Their Freaking Mind’

Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal had some harsh words for celebrities and declared he is not one

In an interview with the New York Post, basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal had some harsh words for celebrities and declared he is not one. “I denounce my celebrity-ness today. I’m done with it” O’Neal told the Post while discussing his new Kellogg’s deal.

“Celebrities are crazy. I don’t want to be in that category. They are. They’re going freaking insane. Don’t call me that anymore” said O’Neal. “These people are out of their freaking mind with how they treat people, what they do, what they say. That’s never been me. I never want to be looked at like that.”

O’Neal’s Kellogg’s deal consists of his own new Frosted Flakes cereal, Crispy Cinnamon Basketballs, and partnership with Mission Tiger, which will help over 60,000 middle-schoolers.

“The Mission Tiger program pledged to purchase new sports equipment, including uniforms, for students across the U.S. The Schools involved in the mission will take place in the six cities where O’Neal played over 19 seasons – Boston, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Miami, Orlando and Phoenix” reports The Post.

O’Neal wants to be remembered for his kindness, says the 49-year-old who grew up poor in New Jersey and says he tries to do random acts of kindness at least twice per week.

Everyone gets stereotyped but celebrities get stereotyped because most of them are “our of their damn mind.” He said. “I’m a regular person that listened, that followed their dreams, made it. But just because I made it don’t mean I’m bigger than you. Just because I made it don’t mean I’m smarter than you. Just cause I have more money than you don’t mean that I’m better than you.”

 I’ve never been that way and I never will be that way. So I don’t want to be in that category of people. When they talk about Shaq, what do you say? ‘He’s a nice guy.’ Because what else can you be? You’re either nice or you’re the A-word, and I definitely won’t be looked at as the A-word,” he said.

“I want people to say, ‘Bro, he’s nice. He didn’t have an entourage. His people didn’t take my phone because I took a picture and threw it.’”

Employees Completely Helpless as Shoplifters Walk Out With Thousands Worth of Goods at Oregon Lowes

Social media Twitter account @libsoftiktok which states in the bio it posts “all things insane & hypocritical” posted a one-minute video showing “2 people walk out of an Oregon Lowe’s with carts of stolen merchandise. Employees look on and are unable to do anything.”

As the video plays, words highlighted red appear that read, “INCREDIBLE STATE OF OREGON, USA” and “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY.” The video takes place at a Lowes store and epitomizes the sad times we are in.

Within the first eight seconds of the video, the two robbers, with filled carts, simply stroll out of the store as if they were paying customers. The Lowes employee asks the men “can you show me the receipts?” The young man appears to flash something while saying “right here.”

The female employee then says “no, I don’t think so” knowing the men did not pay for the items. The two thieves continue to walk the carts out of the store and a second, elderly Lowes employee attempts to stop the men, shouting “hey” as he follows them.

The female employee stops the elderly male employee from pursuing the robbers saying, “it’s not worth it.” As the robbers have successfully exited the store, into the parking lot, the male recording the video then asks the employees, “doesn’t it suck you guys can’t do anything? I mean I think it’s just amazing.”

The video then shows the men in the parking lot throwing the stolen items into a red Subaru where it appears others were waiting to help. A voice can be heard explaining that the guys are packing the car with stolen goods, and another man explains it happens “every day.”

“Dude that’s thousands of dollars – I’m an electrician, bro” the videographer explains of the sheer amount of goods being stolen. The thieves close the back door and the videographer zooms in to the back of the car to show the “license tag” before the car speeds away. The red highlighted words “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY” remained on the video the whole time.
