Singer Marc Anthony, Robert De Niro, shock jock Howard Stern and supermarket mogul John Catsimatidis. Billionaire Donald Trump and his son, Donald Jr.; celebrity lawyer David Breitbart, and artificial-heart inventor Robert Jarvik can also carry steel, police records reveal. Mets third-baseman David Wright has a permit to keep a gun in his city penthouse. Martha Stewart’s daughter, radio host Alexis Stewart, also has a permit.

The best part of the story was “It’s unclear why (Marc) Anthony wanted the permit” …. Let me hazard a guess, maybe because he wants to carry a gun?
Nice to hear Donald and his boy are taking advantage of their status and being decent Americans. I actually wouldn’t be surprised if Trump carried around some sort of gaudy .50 Desert Eagle (DEAGLE) with diamonds all over it. His taste is pretty lavish judging by his Penhouse condo they show on each season of ‘The Apprentice’.
Oakland, CA - The City Council voted June 25 to eliminate 80 police officer positions to help close the city’s $32.5 million funding gap.
Police chief Anthony Batts listed exactly 44 situation that his officers will no longer respond to. He says if you live and Oakland and one of the listed crimes happens to you, you need to let police know on-line.

Heh… report the crimes online hey? Then what… some sort of independently contracted investigation unit that works for free will respond and crack the case? Looks like this “online” reporting method is just their not so subtle way of sweeping the listed crimes under the rug.
I’m not sure what they are NOT cutting out of the Oakland budget, but in a city that is always ranked high in mast categories of crime… cutting money to the police is just a bad idea.
Looks like it will be a free-for-all in Oakland.
I hope at least a few of the 80 that were laid off, were the bozos involved in the shooting of the deer back in May.
P.S. What is Grand theft dog? Theft of a really expensive dog?
A man accused of murdering an up-and-coming rapper who was fatally shot at the Beverly Center last year was found not guilty Friday by a Los Angeles jury.
The trial of Aubrey Berry, an events promoter from Atlanta, revolved in part around the victim’s violent rap lyrics as the defense sought to portray the rapper as a threatening gang member who was shot as he attacked Berry.
As an up-and-coming rapper, Dolla glorified the gang lifestyle, bragging about carrying a pistol and his ability to use it.
“You be running when I shoot, I be shooting where you running,” he rapped in his debut single released in 2008.

The fact that Berry was found not guilty blows my mind. Dolla was shot 3 times in the back, and police never found a gun on him. How the hell can they call Berry’s actions self defense? Sounds more like shoot first ask questions later. The jury must have been so fixated on those rap lyrics that they completely lost sight of the facts.

I wouldn’t call those 6 people “victims” since no damage was actually done.
I wonder what these two will be charged with? Attempted murder for her? What for him, Some sort of accessory charge?
He’s going to be regretting that one for a while, considering all he apparently did was cock the gun.
