Lisa Kudrow Rips Sony Execs Over Leaked Emails: ‘Don’t Write Anything You Don’t Want Broadcast’ (Video)

Lisa Kudrow Rips Sony Execs Over Leaked Emails: ‘Don’t Write Anything You Don’t Want Broadcast’ (Video)

Lisa Kudrow Talks Sony Hacks
The “Friends” and “Comeback” star had some harsh words for studio’s chief who had to apologize for language used in emails
Lisa Kudrow doesn’t feel all that sorry for Sony Pictures Entertainment executives whose email inboxes were stolen by hackers and then disseminated online.
“How come I know you don’t write anything you don’t want broadcast in an email?” Kudrow asked rhetorically during an interview with Huffington Post Live. “How come I know that? Who’s advising people?”
Kudrow was asked about the hacking which led to e-mails between Sony exec Amy Pascal and power producer Scott Rudin, among other people, being leaked online. The leaks prompted both Pascal and Rudin to publicly apologize after it was discovered the two engaged in racially-tinged jokes about President Barack Obama over e-mail.
“It doesn’t matter how many times it says ‘This is confidential, meant for just between the sender and the recipient,'” said Kudrow. “Why don’t we know that there are no rules? Everything is broadcast and published. That’s the part I just don’t understand.”
Kudrow has gone on record before saying that she hopes the loss of privacy in today’s culture can help everyone become better people.
“There’s a reason we have close, intimate friends that you can share things that you’re vulnerable about with other people, because you know that they will keep your confidences,” she said. “I think we need to have more boundaries and accountability and a little personal responsibility for what we say.”

NYPD Officer Dan Pantaleo - Another COP Gets Away with Murder and "He feels Bad About It"

MEMPHIS TN (IFS) -- Several weeks ago, I opened my SmithBits Blogtalk Radio Show up with Ice-T's "Cop Killer".  It was a little to much for the listening audience to digest.  The parody of the story, is when cops do things that kill their own careers.  I was always taught, that if it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, or swims like a duck -- IT"S  A DUCK!! 

So how many ways does putting a chokehold on a citizen and killing him, not murder?  When a Grand jury, says that it's not so, until it happens to you or your loved ones.

So the double standard continues in AMERICA even with video that shows a rabit punk ass cop killing a citizen IN COLD BLOOD MURDER and it's LEGAL!!

It's will not be to hard for Officer Pantaleo to get a partner each and every morning of work, with a target on his back.  I for one do not want to be anyway close to him, for a disgruntle citizen may mistake his partner for him instead.  

Oh yea, his commanding officer was an unidentified black female sergeant who headed the operation that killed Mr. Garner.  And yet, she is as guilty as the rest of those officers who did not have ears and could not hear a person crying for help as they were killing him on camera and before the eyes of the world.

Police Officer Says He Feels 'Very Bad' About Eric Garner Choke Hold Death

PHOTO: Daniel Pantaleo, the Staten Island cop accused of putting Eric Garner in a fatal choke hold, was not indicted by a Staten Island grand jury.


A New York City police officer who will not be indicted for the death of a man he put in a choke hold has spoken out for the first time since the incident.

Police Officer Daniel Pantaleo, 29, was suspended in mid-July following the death of Eric Garner. He issued a statement today after it was announced that a Staten Island grand jury has declined to indict the officer.

"I became a police officer to help people and to protect those who can't protect themselves," Pantaleo said in the statement. "It is never my intention to harm anyone and I feel very bad about the death of Mr. Garner. My family and I include him and his family in our prayers and I hope that they will accept my personal condolences for their loss."


Garner's family has already announced that they intend to file a wrongful death lawsuit against NYPD for $75 million.

Jonathan Moore, the attorney for Garner's family, said that the grand jury's decision not to indict the police officer shows marked similarities to the decision of the Ferguson, Missouri, grand jury when it chose not to indict police officer Darren Wilson, who fatally shot unarmed teen Michael Brown.
"The family is very upset and disappointed that these officers are not getting indicted for any criminal conduct," Moore said.

The family also took issue with the way that the police officers involved were handled when it came to their grand jury testimony. Both Pantaleo and his partner testified in front of the 23-person jury. The partner had immunity from prosecution at the time of his appearance.

"As we saw in Ferguson sometimes these grand jury’s turn into trials without the real parties being present to cross examine the participants," Moore said in the statement. "It’s hard to believe that that all the officers other than Daniel were granted immunity. As evidenced by the video there were several officers who impacted Mr. Garner while he was on the ground. These officers were granted immunity before any evidence was ever presented."

The president of the city's Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, Patrick Lynch, said that while they are "pleased" with the decision, "there are no winners today."

"It is clear that the officer's intention was to do nothing more than take Mr. Garner into custody as instructed and that he used the take down technique that he learned in the academy when Mr. Garner refused," Lynch said in a statement.

The July 17 incident was caught on video and NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton previously described the officer's move as a choke hold, which is not an approved technique for the police department.

Bratton also said that every member of the NYPD would have to be retrained in light of the incident.

Pharrell Williams causes Twitter storm after saying Michael Brown behaved in 'bully-ish' way

Pharrell Williams causes Twitter storm after saying Michael Brown behaved in 'bully-ish' way

Singer enters debate over shot teenager. Meanwhile keep up with all the latest breaking news on the Ferguson story on live TV at FilmOn.com
Singer Pharrell Williams has caused a heated debate on Twitter after entering the controversy over the shooting of black teenager Michael Brown.

The 41-year-old star told Ebony magazine he was ‘troubled’ by a grand jury’s decision not to indict a white police officer who fired on Brown in Ferguson, Missouri – which has sparked violent protests across the US.

But Pharrell added that he thinks Brown’s behaviour just before the shooting was ‘bully-ish,’ causing some Twitter users to vehemently disagree with his comments.

Pharrell told Ebony: ““I don’t talk about race since it takes a very open mind to hear my view, because my view is the sky view. But I’m very troubled by what happened in Ferguson, M.”

The section of the interview that has angered some people on Twitter is as follows:
EBONY: Did you see the video allegedly showing Michael Brown stealing from a convenience store minutes before his death?

WILLIAMS: It looked very bully-ish; that in itself I had a problem with. Not with the kid, but with whatever happened in his life for him to arrive at a place where that behavior is OK. Why aren’t we talking about that?”

The exchange has caused a flurry of responses, including one Twitter user who wrote: “Mike Brown was a bully says Pharrell Williams. So do we get  pass to shoot bullies in society? Way to go Pharrell. Fox news says hi.”

It’s worth reading the full interview in order to keep things in context. Pharrell also says he believes President Obama should have visited Ferguson.

Several major news organizations have picked-up on Pharrell’s comments over night, including the New York Daily News.

Meanwhile, you can keep up with breaking news on the Ferguson situation via FilmOn.com, where there are hundreds of free live web TV channels to choose from, including the BBC (embedded below).

Cops are the new Baby Killers


MEMPHIS TN (IFS) -- As a Vietnam era veteran, I was called a "baby killer" by some of my high school mates, and spit upon.  I really never could give a good reason to show up at any of the high school reunions afterward.   It's been awhile since these terrible days of that war that I lost. 

In real perspective, back in the days of school, when we played a game and lost, it was always said, "why did you loose the game?"  But when the game was won, it was "We won!".  It's a pleasure and a shame that the title of baby killers be placed on the police force. It goes all the way back to Emmett Till, a 14 year old boy murdered by Southern police officers.  And the beat goes on and it never changes.  White police officers killing young babies, old men and women and they expect us to respect them. The police are a necessary evil, just like the Taliban who kill and oppress their villages and then whip the people with fear.

I don't know if I can tolerate these outlaws any longer.

Cops are the new Baby Killers - America's Department of Justice is starting to Target the Badges of bad cops.

When enough is enough. Darren Wilson says he'll do it again and would kill a kid and anybody else that looked like a "demon".

Cleveland police on Wednesday released the names of two officers involved in the shooting death of a 12-year-old boy who had a pellet gun, an incident that has touched off protests in the area. The officers were identified as 26-year-old Timothy Loehmann, who was appointed to the force this year, and 46-year-old Frank Garmback, who's been with the department since 2008.


Cleveland dispatcher never relays the word that the gun is a fake. The kid was pulling up his pants. A child was playing in a playground and the cops kills the kid, and its justified.

Officer Darren Wilson Speaks About Shooting Michael Brown



 The Ferguson, Mo. police officer who shot and killed an unarmed black teenager in August said in an interview aired on Tuesday that there was "no way" Michael Brown had his hands up right before he was killed -- disputing one of the core controversies at the heart of a case that touched off nationwide protests and racial unrest.

 In his first public statements since a grand jury declined to indict him on charges of murder and manslaughter, Darren Wilson told ABC's George Stephanopoulos that Brown, 18, started an altercation between the two on Aug. 9 when he reached into the officer's squad car and began assaulting him, punching him twice in the face and reaching for his sidearm.

Wilson, who reportedly is 6-foot-4 and weighs around 210 pounds, said he reached for his gun only when he began to fear for his life, and he struggled with the 6-foot-3, nearly 300-pound Brown over control of the weapon. Shots were fired inside the car, causing Brown to flee, and Wilson then chased after him on foot, telling Stephanopoulos he had "to see where this guy goes." According to Wilson, Brown then stopped, turned and began charging at him, at which point the officer fired several shots, hitting Brown several times, including a fatal wound to the head.

Wilson told Stephanopoulos he would have acted the same way if circumstances were repeated. "The reason I have a clean conscience is I know I did my job right," Wilson said, adding that he would have made the same decisions had Brown, who was black, been a white man. Wilson, who said the incident was the first time he had ever fired his gun in the line of duty, said witness accounts that Brown held up his hands to signal his surrender were "incorrect." He added that he was sorry for Brown's parents that they lost their son.

 Additional portions of the interview were scheduled to air later Tuesday on Nightline and Wednesday on "Good Morning America." The interview's airing comes after a night of sometimes violent confrontation between protesters and authorities in Ferguson and in other cities across the country following the grand jury's decision.

Authorities early Tuesday night warned against a repeat of the looting and vandalism that marked Monday's protests in Ferguson, and Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon said more than 2,200 National Guard troops would be in the city to deter violence.

Professional Victims of Dr. William Cosby

MEMPHIS TN (IFS) -- It appears that Bill Cosby is between a rock and a hard place.  All of the acquisitions from over seven (7) women and counting.  Over three (3) decades the stories have been flying around this person.

So at this time, the women are pointing fingers and screaming that he spiked their drinks and take advantage of them.

No police reports for the most part, and a very tasty public that putting on a show of their own. As the old saying goes. . . you can never say "No" enough.

I feel for Mrs. Cosby, as she has been by his side forever, and how she stands the humiliation from all of this negative attention is beyond this writer belief.

Having been to several concerts of Mr. Cosby over the years, I have personally witnessed how the women would line up at the stage for autographs and just the chance to shake his hand and touch him.  I believe that he did not need any portion to "trick" any woman into having sex with him.  They were standing in line for a chance to be near him, and I know he could have had anyone of them at just a nod of his head.

Being an old man these days, I hope that Dr. Cosby is not hurting for any funds, as all of his shows of the past and his new current shows have been cancelled and or postponed.

As with anything else in life, your past does come back to terrorize you, if you have been bad.  I hope that this does not create a lasting effect on his pocketbook as well as his personal life.

Memphis TN Kroger Store Flash Mob injures Employees

MEPHIS TN (IFS) -- What is going on in Memphis TN? Every week it does not fail that something very bizarre is happening with its youth that have gone out of control. This is very sad for the whole city. Where are the parents of these thugs? There is going to be lawsuits up the trees.

  • Email this pageA St. Louis County police officer who was seen pushing CNN host Don Lemon during a protest in Ferguson, Missouri earlier this week was suspended from duty after a video of himself, CNN reported on Friday.The video, posted online this past May, shows Officer Dan Page giving a speech before members of the Christian organization the Oath Keepers. At one point, he shows the audience a picture of himself in Kenya, saying he went there to search for the country’s “undocumented president,” Barack Obama.
“I flew to Africa, right there, and I went to our undocumented president’s home,” Page says. “He was born in Kenya.”
According to CNN, authorities were concerned over remarks Page made indicating a willingness to kill.
“I personally believe in Jesus Christ as my lord and savior, but I’m also a killer,” Page says in the video. “I’ve killed a lot. And if I need to, I’ll kill a whole bunch more. If you don’t want to get killed, don’t show up in front of me. I have no problems with it. God did not raise me to be a coward.
On top of his suspension, Page was ordered to take a psychiatric exam. County Police Chief Jon Belmar also issued a public apology “to anybody that was offended” by Page’s remarks.
“He does not represent the rank-and-file of [the] St. Louis County Police Department,” Belmar told Lemon in an interview on Friday.
The footage also shows Page, a retired Vietnam veteran, saying he does not believe in hate crime laws, while also complaining about “sodomites” on the Supreme Court, “sodomites and females” entering the military, and blaming women for causing men to be arrested on domestic violence charges.
“Don’t be a waste of cops’ time,” Page says. “Just shoot each other and get it done.”
On Monday, Page was spotted pushing Lemon while he gave a live report during a protest criticizing the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown by a Ferguson police officer, Darren Wilson. Page was not wearing a badge or identification at the time.

When "Too Protect and too Serve" becomes "Military Police to intimidate and harass"

WHEN THE PUBLIC IS THE ENEMY

(Reuters) - Minutes before a police officer shot him dead, Michael Brown had become a suspect in the theft of cigars from a store, according to police reports released on Friday after days of protests in a St. Louis suburb over the unarmed black teenager's death. But what, if anything, that had to do with the fatal encounter became less clear as the day went by. Hours after the reports' release, police said that Officer Darren Wilson, 28, had no idea 18-year-old Brown was a robbery suspect.

He simply wanted Brown to move from the road to the sidewalk, Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson said at a news conference "He was walking down the middle of the street blocking traffic. That was it," Jackson said. After nearly a week of accusations that the Ferguson Police Department did not know how to communicate with the public, Jackson did little to dispel that image during two appearances on Friday. He was visibly nervous, stuttering as he fumbled his notes, and made announcements that sowed more confusion. After releasing the robbery incident report without any attempt to explain its fuller context, he let more than five hours pass before confirming, and only when asked, that Wilson did not know about the robbery when he encountered Brown.

 The decision by the police department, which is overwhelmingly white, to release a report on the robbery while keeping details of the shooting secret only added to the frustration felt by many in the St. Louis area. Still, as protests entered their sixth night on Friday there was far less tension than earlier in the week, before local forces were replaced by state police led by an African-American captain. Outside a burned-out building where protesters were shot with rubber bullets two days ago, the scene resembled a summer carnival.

Horns blew in support as cars drove past a crowd of people, many of whom brought picnic coolers. Hope Walker, 46, sat in a folding chair on the sidewalk with some friends. "It's more like a block party than what I was calling little Beirut," said the music teacher. Earlier Friday, after identifying Wilson as the officer involved in the shooting, the Ferguson police chief described him as a "gentleman" who has been devastated by the incident. Wilson worked four of his six years as an officer on the Ferguson police force, Jackson said. Wilson's identity has been kept a secret since the Aug. 9 shooting and authorities had been under mounting pressure to both identify the officer and to provide details about the investigation to ease unrest in the largely black community.

 Since Saturday's killing, which took place shortly after noon on a street running through a quiet, tree-lined residential neighborhood, protesters have converged on Ferguson. Civil rights groups have complained that Brown's death is the latest in a long history of racial profiling and harassment by police, and discriminatory arrests. Some residents saw the police report on the robbery as the latest example of the pattern. "This is how the police operate here, they always defame the name of the victim," said area resident Arthur Austin, 39. "The more I hear, the less I trust what the police are saying." RALLY ON SUNDAY A Brown family attorney said it appeared to be Brown in the convenience store's security-camera footage, which showed a man shoving a store clerk during an apparent robbery.

Dorian Johnson, the friend who was with Brown that day, told the FBI and Justice Department officials about the robbery this week, his lawyer said. Anthony Gray, a Brown family attorney, said the talk of a robbery was a "distraction" raised by police. He said the real issue was why Wilson shot an unarmed Brown as the teenager held his arms in the air in a sign of surrender, as two witnesses described.

 The Rev. Al Sharpton, president of the civil rights group National Action Network, issued a statement condemning what he called a "smear campaign" against the teenager. Sharpton said he would lead a rally on Sunday with Brown's family, who expressed outrage at the police report in a statement on Twitter. "There is nothing based on the facts that have been placed before us that can justify the execution style murder of their child by this police officer as he held his hands up, which is the universal sign of surrender," the statement said. According to the account given by Jackson and the police reports his department released, police received a call about the robbery and an ensuing altercation with a clerk at 11:51 a.m. on Aug. 9. A suspect description went out over police radio.

 Wilson left a prior call he was on and then encountered Brown at 12:01 p.m. Three minutes later Wilson had fatally shot Brown, Jackson said. Wilson, who has been put on paid administrative leave, has been shielded from the public. A lone police car sat outside Wilson's single-story brick house on Friday, and neighbors posted signs on their doors asking to be left alone. One neighbor said Wilson had not been seen for days. Another posted a sign on their door that read simply: "We don't know anything. Pray for peace." The police version that has thus far been provided of Brown's shooting differs markedly from witness accounts, including that of his friend Johnson. In their earlier account, police said Brown reached into the patrol car and struggled with Wilson before the officer pulled his service gun and shot Brown multiple times. Wilson sustained a facial injury, which was treated in a hospital, they said.

 But Johnson and one other witness have said that Brown was trying to get away from the officer, who tried to grab him after telling him to move off the street and onto a sidewalk. Brown held up his hands in a sign of surrender but was shot several times, they said. Police have acknowledged that Brown's body was more than 30 feet away (nine meters) from the police car when he died and that multiple shell casings were found at the scene.

MEMPHIS TN (IFS) -- Dorian Johnson's statements keep changing as the hours prolong.  Chief Thomas Jackson's statements are not any better. When Johnson tells his story about the altercation with the police officer, he states that he sees the officers weapon through the window, then he sees the officer fire a shot at Brown's upper body.  He continues to tell us then they began to run, after the first shots.  Nowhere in his statements does he say that Brown throw his hands up and said "Hands Up, don't Shoot".

Johnson is clearly attempting to get fame and face time.  The question is, why was only Brown shot and not Johnson, as they were together.

Chief Jackson, did not have the courtesy to meet with the Missouri State Patrol officer in charge at the request of the Governor.  He showed no respect for the the chain of command and other officers.

We understand that it's politics to toss up a smoke screen to protect your fellow officers and the terrible deed that was done, causing the entire nation to question the tactics of a chief of police that polarized the situation.

The role of the police is too "Protect and Serve".  These officers were totally para-military and treated their citizens as all criminals and arresting the press and causing more trouble than solving it.



It has been a long, strange day in Ferguson, Missouri: for reporters covering the aftermath of the shooting of Michael Brown, for residents reeling from the loss of a member of their community. It has probably been longer and stranger still for those directly affected by Brown’s death — his mother, Lesley McSpadden, his father, Michael Brown Sr., his friends. It has also, surely, been a long and strange day for the Ferguson police officer who shot and killed Mike Brown on Saturday and whose name was finally released to the public today by Police Chief Thomas Jackson. Death threats against the officer and his family, police said, kept them from releasing the officer’s name to the press initially. But pressure to release the name mounted all week, and police finally succumbed, announcing Friday morning that Police Chief Jackson would hold a press conference to announce the name at around 8:30 a.m. ET. Reporters gathered beside the smoke-stained carcass of a convenience store burnt by rioters in nights previous. It was a potent reminder of the clashes between protesters and heavily-armed police that the city had endured for days before Missouri’s governor, Jay Nixon, replaced Ferguson and St. Louis County police with Missouri State Highway Patrol officers led by Captain Ron Johnson. Johnson, a St. Louis native, has so far led a master-class in community policing. Gone are the heavily-armored vehicles favored by Ferguson and St. Louis County officers, gone are the riot gear and the weapons, replaced by equanimity and calm.
