Fire Chief ‘Embarrassed,’ ‘Regrets’ Using Racial Slur Against Mike Tomlin

From Pittsburgh CBS Local:

Paul Smith, the chief of Cecil Volunteer Fire Station #2, posted a derogatory response on Facebook, which directed a racial slur at Steelers’ head coach Mike Tomlin.

In the post, Smith wrote: “Tomlin just added himself to the list of no good N*****s. Yes I said it.”

Reaction to Smith’s post in Cecil Township was quick and negative.

Dylan Pareso, who lives across the street from the fire hall, said, “I’m completely upset, especially for a town like this, coming from the fire chief, that’s disrespectful in my eyes. I don’t agree with it one bit.”

Mary Plumley told KDKA-TV’s Ralph Iannotti, “For a fire chief or for anybody like that to say something like that is wrong. They don’t need to be in that position.”

Charlotte mayoral candidate reminds voters – she’s white

They aren’t even trying to hide the racism anymore:

A Charlotte mayoral candidate wants people to know that she’s Republican, smart – and white.

“VOTE FOR ME!” Kimberley Paige Barnette posted on Facebook. “REPUBLICAN & SMART, WHITE, TRADITIONAL.”

Barnette, who turned 53 on Friday, is a former Mecklenburg County magistrate making her first run for office.

She could not be immediately reached.

The post drew angry responses on Facebook.

“You are NOT doing conservatives or Republicans any favors,” one man wrote.

In a WTVI debate last month, Barnette criticized last September’s Charlotte protesters. She called the protests “an expression of Democratic behavior.”

Black teenage woman, mistaken for machete-wielding black man, alleges police brutality

From Bakersfield.com:

A black 19-year-old woman was punched in the mouth by an officer, bitten by a police K9 and arrested last month after an officer said he mistook her for a 180-pound bald man suspected of threatening people with a machete at a nearby grocery store.

Tatyana Hargrove’s story has been gaining attention this week after the NAACP’s Bakersfield chapter released a Facebook video Monday morning recapping the incident, which it said was racially motivated.

It comes about six months after the group released a similar video alleging two black college students were roughed up similarly by Bakersfield Police Department officers without cause.

In the most recent video, Hargrove alleges that on June 18 she was walking home from Wooden Nickel Trading Company on Ming Avenue, where she had gone for a Father’s Day gift, when she was approached by an officer. He drew his gun as soon as he got out of his patrol car, she claims.

The result of the contact? An altercation that left Hargrove with scrapes, bruises, a punch to the mouth from one officer and a bite from a K9 released by another. During the course of her arrest, Hargrove said she feared for her life.

“He [the officer] put his other knee on my head, and I told him, ‘I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe’ and I started yelling out: ‘Somebody help me, somebody help me, they’re going to kill me,’” Hargrove said in the video, which received more than 225,000 views in eight hours and attracted hundreds of comments expressing frustration and anger.

She declined to speak to The Californian through NAACP Bakersfield chapter President Patrick Jackson, who spoke on her behalf.

She was arrested on suspicion of resisting or delaying an officer and aggravated assault on an officer, according to BPD arrest records.

Man Accused of Anti-Muslim Hate Crime Breaks Down in Tears

From KGW.com comes this story about a man who harassed a couple because they had the audacity to walk down the street while being Muslim:

PORTLAND, Ore. – A man arrested last Friday for anti-Muslim hate crimes broke down in tears and expressed regret after his court arraignment Monday morning.

Frederick Nolan Sorrell, 49, was accused of second-degree intimidation after a Muslim couple was allegedly subjected to slurs and intimidation May 29.

Sorrell reportedly drove next to the couple for more than 20 blocks, according to a statement from The Oregon Committee of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

CAIR said he reportedly attempted to hit their vehicle several times and shouted “take off the (expletive) burka, this is America, go back to your (expletive) country” before mimicking firing a handgun pointed at the couple.

Sorrell, who made bail, pled not guilty Monday. He will be back in court again in August. He’s also not allowed to go on Facebook anymore, according to the judge, where he made several discriminatory comments.

He blames it on his ignorance and claims full responsibility (although he did plea not guilty)

“I guess my fear and paranoia, I just yelled out. I don’t go on social media looking to hate on people,” he said. “I guess my ignorance and my stupidity is why I opened my mouth, and I shouldn’t have and I claim full responsibility.”

“I don’t know who you are. I’m sorry I blurted out what I blurted out, my paranoia my fear. I don’t hate you I don’t know you,” Sorrell said. “I don’t wish death upon these people.”

“If the victims want to sit down and talk I would love to sit down and have an open conversation with them and have an open mind and apologize,” he said. “I just don’t know them, and all I know is fear based information.”

But why should the victims now have to take the time to educate your racist ass? If you mug someone, the victims don’t have to sit down with you to explain why it was wrong of you to hold them up. You’re a terrible human being who shouldn’t bother people because of the color of their skin, their gender, orientation, religious beliefs or for any other reason. Why is this so damn hard for these idiots to understand?

Man Allegedly Screams “Get Out of My Country” Before Shooting Three People

He thought he was shooting middle easterners.

An Olathe man who reportedly told two strangers — Garmin engineers originally from India — to “get out of my country” before he shot them in an Olathe bar was charged Thursday with first-degree murder in the death of one of the victims.

Adam W. Purinton, 51, allegedly shot Srinivas Kuchibhotla, 32; Alok Madasani, 32, of Overland Park, and another bar patron, 24-year-old Ian Grillot of Grandview.

Kuchibhotla died at a hospital after the 7:15 p.m. shooting in Austins Bar & Grill near 151st Street and Mur-Len Road.

Purinton also is charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder in the shootings of Madasani and Grillot. Witnesses said Grillot was shot after he intervened.

Madasani was released Thursday from a hospital, where Grillot is improving. The two even talked with each other Thursday.

In a video released by the University of Kansas Health System, Grillot spoke about how he jumped at the shooter.

“It wasn’t right, and I didn’t want the gentleman to potentially go after somebody else,” Grillot said.

Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe announced the charges against Purinton during a press conference at Olathe police headquarters.

He was joined by federal law enforcement officials who said that they are investigating in conjunction with Olathe police to determine if the shooting was a bias-motivated hate crime in violation of the victims’ civil rights.

At least one witness reportedly heard the man yell “get out of my country” shortly before shooting Kuchibhotla and Madasani. The man fled on foot. A manhunt ensued. Five hours later, Purinton reportedly told a bartender at a bar in an Applebee’s in Clinton, Mo., that he needed a place to hide out because he had just killed two Middle Eastern men, The Star has learned.

The bartender called police, and Purinton was arrested without incident, Assistant Clinton Police Chief Sonny Lynch said. Purinton was not armed.
