Two women were arraigned Wednesday on charges stemming from an incident last week that they say was sparked by racism and capped off by excessive force from police.

Sisters Krystal Dixon, 33, and Maya Dixon, 34, both of whom are black, were involved in a June 9 altercation with police at a Fairfield, Ohio, public swimming pool. Both women are now facing charges of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct, and two children at the scene, ages 12 and 15, have also been arrested and charged in connection with the incident. The family is also claiming that a police officer broke a 12-year-old family member's jaw and ribs as he tried to restrain her. The Dixons have suggested that race played a factor in how pool staff and law enforcement treated the family.


In a news conference Tuesday, Bishop Bobby Hilton, a member of Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network who is now serving as a representative for the family, said that the confrontation began shortly after Krystal Dixon dropped off a group of eight kids at the pool. (It's not clear how many of the kids were relatives of either Krystal or Maya Dixon.) Staff reportedly asked the group to leave because one of the kids wasn't wearing a proper swimsuit. A park ranger was called when they refused. According to a police report, the kids told the ranger that their mom had said they didn't have to leave.

Hilton said that Krystal Dixon went to get appropriate swimwear for the boy in question, but when she returned, she was told that he wouldn't be allowed back in. The situation escalated when Dixon went to retrieve the other kids from the pool area.


A set of videos posted on Tuesday by Hilton appear to show the progression of the incident. In the first clip, Dixon is seen arguing with pool staff. She can be heard asking for a refund, which is denied. A park ranger and a police officer confront both Dixon and the person filming the events. The video ends with an officer asking for Dixon's identification and appearing to grab her wrist.

The second clip starts after the altercation has already gotten physical. More officers have arrived, and one white officer can be seen grabbing a young girl around the neck and pushing her against a police car as she screams. An unidentified white male dressed in a swimsuit appears to be pressing a black male against a fence, alongside a police officer. Police officials have said they used pepper spray during the episode. It's unclear when, but someone in the clip claims to have been Maced.

The final video shows the aftermath of the incident. In the video, a handcuffed Maya Dixon claims that Krystal Dixon is pregnant and that one of the officers punched her 12-year-old daughter.

Everything’s going crazy and they’re videotaping, trying to make it look like a racist thing and it’s not at all,” said the caller, a pool employee. “They were breaking our policy and we told them they couldn’t be here anymore and it’s really scary and I don’t feel safeCollapse )

SACRAMENTO, Calif., May 11 (Reuters) - Eight California lawmakers on Monday denounced a proposed ballot initiative that advocates the murder of gays and lesbians and has stirred outrage in the state.

The proposal, which is unconstitutional and highly unlikely to make the ballot or pass, has upset people across the political spectrum in a state that prides itself on civil rights protections for all citizens.Read more...Collapse )

As unlikely (as in "when hell freezes solid and never thaws out again") this is to pass, I think it's a travesty that there's even a possibility that it has even a smidgen of a chance of appearing on the ballot. I really don't understand the laws in CA that govern how these things work.

California lawyer proposes punishing homosexuality by shooting people in the head
The state received a proposal that would make acts of sodomy punishable by death, along with a check for $200

Despite the fact that criminal sodomy hasn’t been allowed in California for years and that laws regarding the subject have generally fallen out of favor across the country, a delusional California lawyer submitted a ballot initiative this week to the state’s department of justice, proposing what he calls the “Sodomite Suppression Act.”

The proposal, from Matt McLaughlin of Huntington Beach, calls for the execution of all Californians performing homosexual acts. McLaughlin was even kind enough to attach a $200 check to the absurd document, as if the government procedure were to double as mass-murder-for-hire.

The lone homophobe has outlined his horrifying “bill” in seven measures, including the following tenets (obtained by the Huffington Post):

The abominable crime against nature known as buggery, called also sodomy, is a monstrous evil that Almighty God, govern of freedom and liberty, commands us to suppress on pain of our utter destruction even as he overthrew Sodom and Gomorrha. [...]

Seeing that it is better that offenders should die rather than that all us should be killed by God’s just wrath against us for the folly of tolerating wickedness in our midst, the People of California wisely command, in the fear of God, that any person who willingly touches another person of the same gender for purposes of sexual gratification be put to death by bullets to the head of by any convenient method. [...]

This law shall be known as ‘The Sodomite Suppression Act’ and be numbered as section 29 in Title 3 of the Penal Code, pertaining to offenses against the sovereignty of the state. The text shall be prominently posted in every public school classroom. ALl laws in conflict with this law are to that extent invalid.

McLaughlin’s attempt to criminalize homosexuality and make sodomy punishable by death would require more than 350,000 signatures in California’s next gubernatorial election, equaling 5 percent of the number of total votes. His obscene suggestion to actually murder individuals who engage in sodomy is only made more outrageous by his insistence that these “offenders” be shot in the head.

Judging by the fact that “Matt McLaughlin of Huntington Beach” has absolutely no presence on the Internet and remains virtually untraceable despite a few elusive clues, it’s likely this farce will end as a meme. Still, the implications are deeply frightening.

Florida lawmakers have proposed legislation that would finally make it legal for unmarried couples to live together.

Under current Florida law, it is punishable by a $500 fine and up to 60 days in jail for an unmarried man and woman to live together.

“If any man and woman, not being married to each other, lewdly and lasciviously associate and cohabit together, or if any man or woman, married or unmarried, engages in open and gross lewdness and lascivious behavior, they shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the second degree,” the law states.

Two Democrats, State Sen. Eleanor Sobel and state Rep. Rehwinkel Vasilinda, have filed legislation to repeal the law, which has been on the books since 1868.

Lawmakers have proposed legislation to repeal the law before, but previous efforts failed.

“I’m not ready to give up on monogamy and a cultural statement that marriage still matters,” state Rep. Dennis Baxley said in 2011.

Nearly 700 people were charged with misdemeanors between 2006 and 2011, according to WCTV.

In 2012, a “concerned citizen” called for Hallandale Beach City Commissioner Keith London to be prosecuted under the law for living with his girlfriend.

“I don’t give a darn about London’s living arrangement. I may even agree that the law in question is archaic and not well-suited to contemporary times. But the real story is that an elected official — sworn (or affirmed) to uphold state law — is knowingly violating that law,” Linda Takahashi explained.

Hallandale Beach officials and the State Attorney’s Office declined to investigate.
As TV news errors go it doesn't come much worse than labelling the President of the United States of America a rapist, but that's exactly what Fox 5 San Diego inadvertently managed to do during its 10 o'clock news on Friday night.

"The only suspect in a sex assault at SDSU will not be charged," Emmy-winning anchor Kathleen Bade told viewers, as a photo of a serious-looking Obama appeared beside her.

Worse, the image was strapped with a 'NO CHARGES' caption.

It took Fox 5 a little while to spot the error, with the wrong photo staying up until it went to VT.

"Yeah, there was an accident when they had an over-the-shoulder display", assignment editor Mike Wille told Times of San Diego.

Fox News has never been the president's biggest fan, but the station insisted painting him as a criminal wasn't intentional.

"It wasn't on purpose," Wille added.

He said there was no on-air apology because "They really don’t do that when it’s a small thing like that." I look forward to whatever constitutes a "big thing".

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – Police say a teenager in Florida was “playing doctor” inside a real medical facility.

The teen, who posed as a doctor, was able to walk the halls of St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach.

Police say he wore a white coat with the St. Mary’s logo.

“I think it’s just crazy. I can’t believe he got away with it for a month,” Stacy Morales said.

The impostor was busted while wearing a stethoscope around his neck and a mask on his face.

At the time, he was in an examination room with a patient.

“He presented himself with a patient of our practice and introduced himself as Dr. Robinson,” Dr. Sebastian Kent said, an OB/GYN with St. Mary’s Medical Center.

According to the police report, the teen was inside the examination room with a patient when Dr. Kent conducted an exam.

“The first thing I thought was, ‘I am getting, I am really getting old because these young doctors look younger every year,” Dr. Kent said.

The real doctor called security, who then called police.

Even security guards around the hospital had seen him for weeks and believed he was someone who belonged there.

“I saw him outside our office building with policemen surrounding him. I believe they had him in handcuffs. There was quite a commotion,” Dr. Kent said.

The hospital said in a statement:



“The individual never had contact with any hospital patients and did not gain access to any patient care areas of the hospital at any time. The hospital immediately notified local authorities, who took the individual into custody, and we are cooperating with their ongoing investigation.”


The teen’s mother rushed to the scene, saying her son has an illness.

She said he had not been taking his medication.

Police and the hospital have decided not to charge the teen.

OP: I am flabbergasted

A Republican staffer on Friday apologized for a Facebook post that criticized Malia and Sasha Obama's appearance at the annual White House turkey pardon ceremony, one of America's silliest holiday traditions.

Elizabeth Lauten, the communications director for Rep. Stephen Fincher (R-Tenn.), wrote that the two teenagers should "try showing a little class," "dress like you deserve respect, not a spot at a bar," and, most of all, "don't make faces" at Very Serious public events.

Read the full rant via Gawker:

"Dear Sasha and Malia, I get you’re both in those awful teen years, but you’re a part of the First Family, try showing a little class. At least respect the part you play. Then again your mother and father don’t respect their positions very much, or the nation for that matter, so I’m guessing you’re coming up a little short in the ‘good role model’ department. Nevertheless, stretch yourself. Rise to the occasion. Act like being in the White House matters to you. Dress like you deserve respect, not a spot at a bar. And certainly don’t make faces during televised public events."

The First Daughters join President Obama at the ceremony every year, where they can hardly contain their disdain for the lame dad jokes that predictably follow. Before approaching Mac and Cheese, the two turkeys, the president remarked that it was "puzzling that I do this every year." Malia even declined her father's offer to pet one of the pardoned turkeys with a nonchalant, "Nah."

Lauten later apologized for rushing to judgment on Facebook.

"I reacted to an article and quickly judged the two young ladies in a way that I would never have wanted to be judged myself as a teenager," she said. "After many hours of prayer, talking to my parents and re-reading my words online, I can see more clearly how hurtful my words were. Please know that these judgmental feelings truly have no place in my heart. Furthermore, I'd like to apologize to all of those who I have hurt and offended with my words, and pledge to learn and grow (and I assure you I have) from this experience."

Ira Hansen is a Republican member of the Nevada State Assembly. He's served since his 2011 swearing-in, and with his party's newly acquired majority, he was recently named its candidate for speaker.

Hansen also has a history of making sexist, homophobic and racist comments. He has gone after Israel, newcomers to Nevada and low-ranking members of his own party. To name a few.

Hansen wrote a column for the Sparks Tribune for a period of 13 years, in which he aired these -- and many, many other -- grievances. Since the Tribune only recently went online, these columns went largely unnoticed and were difficult to track. The Reno News and Review took the liberty of reviewing every single one of Hansen's columns on microfilm, and it published its findings Thursday.

The report summarizes some of the most contentious comments Hansen made about women, black and Hispanic people, gay individuals and others in the columns he wrote under a Confederate flag.

“I fly it proudly in honor and in memory of a great cause and my brave ancestors who fought for that cause," Hansen wrote.

In the new term, Nevada Republicans will hold majorities in both chambers of the state legislature as well as the governorship for the first time since the Great Depression. With Hansen as speaker, Nevada is in for a treat.


Below, some of The Reno News and Review's most notable findings.

On Women

"Today, when Army men look at women in the ranks with 'longing in their eyes' it very well may constitute ’sexual harassment.’ The truth is, women do not belong in the Army or Navy or Marine Corps, except in certain limited fields."

"Women, historically, have been the nurturers and mothers while men have been the providers and defenders."

“So what happened between 1960 and 2001? Major social changes that negatively affected the family. Childbearing was reduced to an average of two kids. … Divorce rates skyrocketed. ’Child care’ became an industry. Child abuse skyrocketed. Thanks to the ’sexual revolution’ and the ’women’s liberation movement,’ women chose to act as foolishly as men, and illegitimacy also went through the roof. … Abortions get about one out of every four children conceived.”

On Black People

"The lack of gratitude and the deliberate ignoring of white history in relation to eliminating slavery is a disgrace that Negro leaders should own up to."

"King's private life was trashy at best. … King Jr. is as low as it gets, a hypocrite, a liar, a phony, and a fraud."

"The shrewd and calculating [black] 'leaders' are willing to sacrifice the children of their own race to gratify their lust for power and position. The relationship of Negroes and Democrats is truly a master-slave relationship, with the benevolent master knowing what’s best for his simple minded darkies. For American blacks, being denied choice and forced to attend the failing and inferior government school system is a form of involuntary servitude. Let’s call it what it truly is -- educational slavery."

On Latinos

"Locally, gangs and their associated criminal activity are obviously dominated by immigrants, especially Hispanic immigrants. You cannot read a story about criminals or watch a news report locally without noticing a grossly disproportionate amount of Hispanic involvement."

On Gay People

"Considering only about 2 percent of adult males are homosexuals, the numbers show why homosexuals have been historically regarded as such a threat. Male homosexuals are grossly disproportionate in child molestation cases, and the youth orientation of male homosexuality drives this trend."

"I've been keeping a rough tally on homosexual/heterosexual molesters as reported locally, and roughly half of all molestations involve homosexual men preying on boys."

On Israel

"What exactly is it about Israel that makes it so important to the United States? Why are all our actions there designed exclusively to benefit Israel? If Israel ceased to exist tomorrow, what impact would that have on the U.S.? … Israel is a tiny country, roughly 8,000 square miles, about the size of Washoe County, with a total population of approximately 5.5 million people. Twenty percent of those are Arabs. By way of contrast, the Muslim world has about one billion people or roughly 995 million people more than Israel. And most importantly, the Muslim/Arab countries have something of utmost importance to the U.S. -- oil."

"The success of the Israeli propaganda machine, aided and abetted by many duped Christian simpletons in the United States, can be observed by the general consensus, frequently publicly expressed, that Jerusalem and the holy land was until recently almost meaningless to the Muslims. Our ignorance of history is taken advantage of, and this knowledge vacuum is felled with half-truths and distortions of fact."

A Gwinnett county man accepted a plea deal Monday for the fatal shooting of a man, who mistakenly pulled into the wrong driveway.

Channel 2’s Kerry Kavanaugh was in the courtroom as Philip Sailors plead to the misdemeanor charge for the January 2013 shooting in Lilburn.

Channel 2 Action News broke the news Friday about the plea deal which reduced a murder charge to the misdemeanor charge oF involuntary manslaughter and spared the homeowner any jail time.

People Kavanaugh spoke with were surprised that Sailors made no statement and offered no apology to the victim's family during the hearing.

Rodrigo Diaz, the victim’s father, told Kavanaugh in Spanish he wasn’t expecting anything today.

Investigators say GPS misguided Rodrigo Diaz to the wrong house that night. Diaz was trying to get to the home across the street so he could pick up a friend to go roller-skating. When Sailors saw the strange car, he came out shooting. He fired once into the air. Investigators say the second shot went through the window and struck Diaz in the head.

With his guilty plea Sailors will serve 12-months’ probation and pay a $500 fine.

District Attorney, Danny Porter, said the family was on board with the plea deal.

"They are not in a position where they want to have Mr. Sailors sent to prison for the rest of his life,” Porter said in court. “They are in a position where it is most important to them, that the public understand that Mr. Diaz, who was driving the car, was not committing any crime. (He) was not engaged in any unlawful activity, was not engaged in anything even improper."

Sailors didn't address the court Monday, but the Diaz family did. Rodrigo's father had two questions for the court.

After the hearing, Diaz’s father, Rodrigo Diaz Senior. told Kavanaugh that Sailors could have received a stronger punishment, but he believed that would only end up destroying two families.

His eldest son, David, agreed.

"There is no point for him to be in lifetime in prison. What we get from that? Nothing,” said David Diaz.

During the hearing, Diaz addressed the court saying he still had two questions. He asked why Sailors used a bullet which he claims is particularly lethal.

“I understand that it is a bullet designed to kill, that it explodes the moment it penetrates,” Diaz said through a translator.

He also said it was his son’s dream that his little sister come to the United States. He asked the court if any doors could now be opened for that to happen.
Diaz got no response to either question.

As we first reported in May, the Diaz family sued Phillip Sailors citing he acted negligently.

Attorneys say there was a settlement in which the family received an undisclosed amount of money.

Sailors did not want to comment after the hearing. He was surrounded by friends and family who came to the hearing as a show of support.
