Man Who Raised Adrian Peterson’s Son Speaks - Bobby Ruffin, the man who raised Adrian Peterson's two-year-old son took to Facebook to speak out on the toddler's death. As I previously told you guys, over the weekend Peterson's two-year-old son died after allegedly being beaten to death by his mother's boyfriend. Bobby Ruffin wrote on his Facebook page, "So tired of this poor Adrian Peterson sh*t. Let me blow all your minds. The boy who died was my son. Yes A.P. he was the biological father but I raised him and he carried my name. Tyrese Robert Ruffin. I don't blame AP for not really caring cuz him and I both found out recently who the biological father was." Bobby continued saying AP meet his son when he was in a coma and wasn’t even there when they pulled the plug. He said he was happily practicing and preparing to play the game on Sunday. This sounds too emotionally and I think this rant focuses on the wrong things. A child was beat to death by a man that was his parent. That’s what this man should be focused on. Adrian spoke out on playing this Sunday and said, "My brother passed the night before the combine and I decided to go through with it. The same reason why I will play this week. You may ask why? God wants good to come from it... We mourn and grieve but heaven had the baddest welcoming party for my son. That knowledge gives me peace. I'm still hurt and feel the pain of life, but I'm able to function because of the peace and joy of knowing my loved ones are in a much better place."
Walmart Shelves Cleared During EBT Glitch - People in Louisiana got a little crazy when word got out that there was a glitch on EBT cards. According to the stores no EBT cards were showing limits between 7 and 9 PM on Saturday night. Management called Walmart’s corporate office to see what to do about the issue and they were instructed to allow shoppers to use the cards anyway. EBT system malfunctions occurred in several states that night thanks to the vendor system for EBT- Xeorox- experiencing a power outage and system back up.The shelves in the Walmarts were cleared out as people took advantage of the fact that their card basically had no limit. Employees described the chaos as “worse than any black Friday” because the stores were so packed. When the system started working properly again around 9PM one woman was detained for trying to buy $700 worth of merchandise when she only had 49 cents on her card. Walmart spokespeople said that the transactions were monitored and some people may be investigated for fraud.
The Game Drops Big Money On Young Money Chain - The Game dropped big cash money to celebrate his new contract with Cash Money records. He ordered two custom diamond chains that say “Cash Money Records” and have a huge dollar sign on them to celebrate his release from Interscope and new deal. One chain is for himself and the other is for his new boss- Birdman. He spent a total of 40,000. Word is that Game had a rush order put on the bling so that he would have them when the official announcement was made.
Rally Member Tells President Obama To Put The Quran Down - Conservatives angered by the government shutdown and closure of national monuments removed barricades at the WWII and Lincoln memorials for a protest that was called “The Million Vet March on the Memorials”. The gathering saw much fewer than a million people but several big-wig conservatives including Sarah Palin were in attendance. They call the closing of the monuments a “political ploy” and question why the government is trying to keep vets out of their own memorials. One member of the group called Freedom Watch said, “I call upon all of you to wage a second American nonviolent revolution, to use civil disobedience, and to demand that this president leave town, to get up, to put the Quran down, to get up off his knees, and to figuratively come out with his hands up.” The crowd chanted anti-Obama sentiments, started mini riots and threw all of the barricades into a huge pile.
Disturbing Stop & Frisk - Stop and Frisk laws are getting heat all over the country- most recently in New York but new incidents have now put Philly in the middle of controversy. The 16 minute long video shows two white police officers asking two black men for their ID’s after they spoke to a man sitting on the street. The officer said they were wrong because “You don’t talk to strangers…not in this neighborhood.” The officer proceeded to grab the men, curse at them and threaten to “split their wigs open”. Absolutely ridiculous. Hopefully the city is investigating this and the officers will be handled accordingly.
Sandra Bullock Raps Rappers Delight - Sandra Bullock appeared on the Jonathan Ross show to promote her new film ‘Gravity’. Apparently they rapped a lot on the set of the film. She said that she learned the lyrics to Sugarhill’s “Rapper’s Delight” to impress a boy in high school. She said, “I was like, 'Next time I go to that dance, I'm going to know every word. I'm going to make sure he sees me lip-syncing it, and I'm going to catch his eye, and say the words. And he's going to like me. And sadly it worked.”
Biker Claims SUV Driver Got Violent First - One of the bikers who was arrested for the vicious attack that left man beat up in front of his wife and children says that the driver of the SUV provoked the entire situation. A lawyer for the biker testified in court saying “You’re going to hear that a water bottle was tossed out of the car and that might have provoked some of the anger from the motorcyclists, but he [her client] had nothing to do with it. No one can stand here in court and say ‘I saw Clint Caldwell punch or attack the driver.’ They’re just not going to be able to do that.” 3 of the bikers as well as one of the undercover cops involved all made appearances in court but the investigation is still underway to determine who all was involved in the actual attack.
