Chicago man killed while live streaming video on Facebook Live

His death, along with France murder in which killer took to Facebook Live, highlights the huge challenge tech companies face with live stream video

A Chicago man was shot and killed while live streaming a video on Facebook, police said on Friday, just days after a double homicide in France in which the killer later took to Facebook Live to encourage more violence.

Antonio Perkins, 28, was found face down on Wednesday night in a vacant lot with gunshot wounds to the neck and head on the city’s west side, Chicago police officer Laura Amezaga said.

Perkins was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. Police on Friday identified the man in the video as Perkins, who they said was a documented gang member. No arrests have been made.

In France, a 25-year-old man killed a French police commander and the commander’s partner on Tuesday, then he took to Facebook Live with a 12-minute video encouraging followers to kill prison staff, police officials, journalists and lawmakers.

The incidents underscore the immense challenges companies such as Facebook, Twitter and Google’s YouTube face as they push live video streaming to hundreds of millions of people.

Facebook in recent months has made its Live feature – which allows anyone to broadcast a video in real time – a central component of its strategy. It allows people to stream from their smartphone.

Chicago, the third-largest US city, has drawn attention due to its gun violence, which police have blamed largely on gang violence and a proliferation of stolen guns. There were nearly 500 homicides last year, and gun violence is up in 2016, police say.

The Facebook Live video appears to show Perkins recording himself and a group of people in front of a row of homes before someone opened fire. The phone appears to tumble through bloody grass before going black. The audio continues with bystanders screaming and crying.

The video remains on Facebook with a user warning message about its graphic nature.

A spokeswoman from Facebook acknowledged the video posting, saying it does not violate company policy. The social media site will remove a video if it celebrates or glorifies violence, she said.

Mom says it wasn’t fair that her robber son was shot by his intended ‘victim

Michael Grace Jr. was died from a gunshot wound he suffered while trying to rob a Pizza Hut. Grace was shot and killed by an armed restaurant employee, and his mother is upset. Temia Hariston, Grace’s mother, believe it wasn’t fair for the robbery victims to shoot her son, the robber. “If there was to be a death, it was not the place of the employee at Pizza Hut. That is the place of law enforcement,” Hariston told CBS News. “It was an act of desperation, but I do not believe that Michael would have hurt anyone,” she continued. “Why in the hell did this guy have a gun? This wasn’t a body shot. This was a head shot. My son was shot in the left side of his head just behind his ear. A headshot is personal.”

According to his parents, Grace was suffering financial difficulty and resorted to robbery to help provide for his own child. Grace was a former employee of the same Pizza Hut he was attempting to rob, according to Hariston.

Former Apprentice contestant subpoenas Trump campaign for all documents on sexual assault claims

0

former contestant on Donald Trump’s television show has served the President’s campaign committee with a subpoena requesting all documents related to sexual assaults allegedly committed by the president.

According to Buzzfeed, the subpoena came from attorneys for Summer Zervos, a former contestant on The Apprentice who has accused Trump of kissing and groping her in 2007.

The subpoena was served back in March, but just came to light this weekend following the flood of allegations of rape and sexual assault reportedly committed by movie producer Harvey Weinstein.

According to the report, attorneys for Zervos have requested “all documents concerning any accusations that were made during Donald J. Trump’s election campaign for president, that he subjected any woman to unwanted sexual touching and/or sexually inappropriate behavior.”

The attorneys listed a collection of women who have accused Trump of assault, including, Jessica Leeds, Mindy McGillivray, Rachel Crooks, Natasha Stoynoff, Temple Taggart, Kristin Anderson, Cathy Heller, Jill Harth, and Jessica Drake.

Zervos accused Trump of groping her in a highly publicized press conference prior to the presidential election.

Trump’s response to Zervos’ motion is due by the end of the month, said Zervos’ attorney, Gloria Allred.

“We are hopeful that the court will deny President Trump’s motion to dismiss, so that we may move forward with discovery and obtain relevant documents and testimony,” Allred said in a statement.

NFL’s only Muslim owner spills the beans on his colleagues: ’85-year-old guys who don’t think they’re racist’

0

The owner of the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars was remarkably blunt talking about his fellow owners in a talk at an executive conference in Chicago, saying they have no idea how racist they are.

According to Crain’s Chicago Business, Jaguars owner Shahid Khan had a few things to say about the NFL in general and President Donald Trump specifically in the wake of the firestorm the president created after calling ex-NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick a “son of a bitch” for protesting police brutality at NFL games.

Speaking at the forum, Khan, the NFL’s only non-white owner who also happens to be a Muslim, explained the difficulties he had in purchasing an NFL franchise, including an ill-fated attempt to buy the LA Rams when they were still in St. Louis.

“You’ve got a bunch of 85-year-old guys who don’t think they’re racist, but they are racist,” Khan stated, with his spokesperson later clarifying his comments saying Khan was relaying what “others were telling him back then, not what he personally thought.”

Khan then focused on Trump, calling the president the “great divider,” despite having given him $1 million for his inauguration.

“You have to give Trump credit, people are confused on the First Amendment versus patriotism, that if you exercise your First Amendment you’re not a patriot, which is crazy… People are confused on it, (Trump) knew he could hit on it and take advantage. I think what we’re seeing is the great divider overcoming the great uniter,” Khan remarked.

“A lot of the stuff like football (that) Trump does is highly calculated—he looks for issues that you can touch and it will blow people up,” Khan added as he pointed the finger at former Trump White House strategist Steve Bannon.

“Steve Bannon or whoever is analyzing the data realizes, ‘How do I get elected?’ I get elected by dividing this person or this group against this group’” Khan explained. “What are the worst fears, phobias somebody has, how do I tap that button and get them with my people. There’s a lot of predictive behavior here.”

(SHOCKING VIDEO) Captures man’s murder outside of Bodega

The stunned man, clutching his wound, begins to stagger around in the street as the suspect continues menacing him with the knife, as if threatening to strike again.

The victim finally collapses in front of a green cab before the killer walks away from him.

Police said the victim later died at Coney Island Hospital. His identity has not yet been released.

The killer was captured at the scene. Charges against him are pending.

He told cops the victim had tried to rob him and he pulled the knife to defend himself, officials said.

The incident is still under investigation.

Local resident Angel Reyes, 26, said he saw the video when he entered the store as workers were reviewing the tape.

‘Take Off That Uniform, Ni**er’ : White Man Chases Black Servicewoman Yelling Expletives At Her

0

Since the election of Donald Trump, news outlets and social media accounts have swelled with reports of swastikas at schools, racist taunts, and other hate-fueled attacks and acts of intimidation.

In the latest of these incidents, a young Army servicewoman was chased down and verbally assaulted by a racist motorist yesterday.

Geminia Aimable, 19, described the encounter in a Facebook post, explaining that the man screamed racial slurs and told her to kill herself for being black and serving in the military.

In her post, she wrote:

In my 19 years of living… I have never been called a nigger. To my face at least. Yet today, in my uniform, a man cut me off. Just to then later FOLLOW me. I took all these crazy streets to shake him off. I get to a red light to get to my destination and out of nowhere. He comes banging on my window cursing me out… and proceeding to call me a nigger. Told me to never forget that I am nothing but a nigger and that us niggers do not deserve to serve this very country and to take off my uniform and to kill myself. I cannot believe that he said that to me. Not like I provoked him. He told me it pisses him off that we as African Americans are allowed to be in the military.. now I have nothing against Caucasian’s. My aunt and uncles and cousins are white. To me we all bleed the same. But it’s so sad that racism is still so very prominent & that people genuinely hate anyone that’s not the same color as them.. this man really made me realize a lot today and first handedly realize that racism just doesn’t seem to go away. Yet I raised my hand to defend all (even if I’m not infantry) I still sacrificed. Unfortunately I also vowed to protect racist assholes also.”

This is not an isolated incident. Donald Trump has brought into the mainstream the kind of race hatred that had flourished only in the shadows before he came along.

His presence in the White House also removed the scales from the eyes of sane Americans who had held onto the belief that we lived in a post-racial society. Sadly, many Americans will still support Trump, despite a clear bigotry running through much of what he’s said, done and proposed.

This is epic, folks.

These Mexican Columbus Day protesters (hardly any of these lunatics is an American citizen), in an attempt to block traffic, messed with the wrong pick-up truck driver, in a video that has gone viral online.

In the video, a young truck driver and his passenger are harassed by the Mexican mob of Columbus Day protesters, and begin hurling insults and profanity (the majority of their English vocabulary) at the two young Americans.

Well, the driver has had enough!

Watch the video of the encounter (WARNING: Graphic language and disturbing content):

This is what our country has come to, thanks to over half a century of Democratic rule and an anti-American liberal agenda.

We now have little thugs in the streets who are paid by Soros-linked activist groups to spread chaos and terror in the streets, and achieve small wins to progressively erode American symbols of unity and patriotism.

As many cities and universities nationwide protest everything American about America, many are also standing up to the airheads, like this brave young soul here.

These liberal loons deserved what they got for the crimes they were committing by blocking the street. Instant karma, if you ask me.

Don’t block the road, liberal loons.

Enough is enough.

It is time to put a stop to the anti-American madness, put thugs in jail, drain the swamp, and make America great again.
