By Luke Miller Truth Theory

Currently there is a war going on within the world of media. On one hand you have corporately bought and run “news” networks with political agendas, spreading half truths and reporting from a very negative and fear based point of view. In the other you have independent media, (some) trying to spread the word of truth, love, and expand the consciousness of its readers. Often getting heavily censored and unfairly treated by giants such as Facebook in the process.

It is obviously not as cut and dry as this example, but the fact is the way mainstream media is reporting currently is not an accurate representation of what is going on in the world. Plus the majority of America’s news media companies are owned by 15 billionaires, so it is hardly a fair representation of the people.

Step up Collective Evolution an independent media company based in Toronto Canada, who have already served over 1.1 billion visitors through their website.

CE have a target of $200,000 to launch their new channel CENews, but believe with $1 million they can send conscious news into the mainstream. There is no better time for this to happen as conversations are changing, people are waking up and we as a race are ready for more uplifting, conscious and truthful news.

In the words of CE founder Joe Martino “Our vision is for a media that informs, empowers, inspires and helps to transform our world.” I believe that this is not only what the world needs, but also could well be a new stage in human evolution. What we view everyday has such a huge impact on our view of the world, the decisions we make and our mental and physical health. If CE pull this off it sets a precedent for other upcoming media companies and could change the way we view media for good.

Brangelina strike custody deal

As Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie continue the fight for custody of their children, there is at least some light at the end of the divorce for this couple. Brad and Angie did have a prenup.

BRAD Pitt and Angelina Jolie have reportedly reached a custody deal which gives her full custody and subjects him to random drug and alcohol testing.

TMZ reports that the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services made its recommendations which the couple are forced to either accept or fight it out in court.

It comes after the couple’s shock split after 10 years together and six children following an alleged incident on a plane in which Pitt reportedly yelled at their eldest son, Maddox.

TMZ reports that under the temporary deal, which only lasts three weeks, Jolie will receive full custody of all the children.

Pitt will finally be able to see the children but reportedly only with a therapist present. It is up to the therapist as to whether he is allowed further unsupervised visits or if they will continue to be monitored.

Pitt will also have to undergo random drug and alcohol testing. TMZ says an initial test on the Fight Club star came back negative for both.

The family will undergo counselling together and Pitt and Jolie will also have to have individual counselling.

After the three week period the Department of Children and Family Services can hand the matter over to the courts or impose new rules.

The couple have been married for two years. Their children include Maddox, Pax, Zahara Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne.

Cuoco’s red carpet debut with new love

Actress Kaley Cuoco is dating equestrian Karl Cook. Picture: Supplied

KALEY Cuoco is putting her short-lived marriage behind her as she steps out on the red carpet for the first time with her new equestrian boyfriend.

The Big Bang Theory star, 30, has been dating Karl Cook, 26, since about March, following her split from husband Ryan Sweeting in September 2015.

Cuoco married Sweeting in December 2013 after just six months of dating. But it is reported that the tennis pro’s addiction to pain killers caused an end to the marriage.

“You know, last year was very bizarre and we all go through really weird ups and downs,” she told Ellen DeGeneres in February. “I already feel like 2016 is going to be a much better year than 2015. And you know, it’s been rough, but things are going good. I’m much, much better now. I’m in a much better place than I was.”

Cook is a professional equestrian and has appeared in many pictures with Cuoco on her Instagram page.

His dad, Scoot Cook, is a businessman with an estimated wealth of $2.6 billion.

Not that Cuoco needs the money. She made $US24.5 million last year for her role as Penny in The Big Bang Theory, making her the second highest-paid actress on TV, behind Modern Family’s Sofia Vergara.

Cuoco and her co-stars Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki earn $US1 million per episode for their work on the sitcom.

Cuoco is still very close with Galecki, who she secretly dated for two years, and had to reject suggestions that they were back together after her split from Sweeting.

Settlement After Inmate Starved To Death, Found In Feces With Rubber Band Around Genitals

A lawsuit has been settled with the mother of a mentally ill man found in his cell at Rikers Island Prison covered in vomit and feces with a rubber band tied around his genitals after being refused food, water, and medical care for a week.

Settled with New York City for $5.75 million, the lawsuit said schizophrenic and diabetic inmate Bradley Ballard, 39, violated his parole by not reporting an address change and was first taken into custody in June 2013.

He was then sent to the psychiatric prison ward at Bellevue Hospital Center in July, where he was housed for 38 days before returning to the Rikers mental health unit.

On Sept. 4, he was locked in his cell as punishment for dancing in an inappropriate way that offended a female correction officer, according to the lawsuit.

“Not a single nurse, doctor or other medical or mental health provider entered his cell” during his seven day confinement, the lawsuit said. “Rather than provide the critical care required,” medical staff and correction officers, “who knew that Mr. Ballard could not survive without medication, essentially stood by and watched as [he] languished, deteriorated and ultimately died.”

The lawsuit added that the rubber band found tied around Ballard’s genitals, had been placed there by himself – and had led to a severe infection. The New York City medical examiner ruled the death a homicide, with a toxic buildup of acids from lack of insulin medication as one of the causes.

Ballard’s mother named New York City, the Rikers Island warden, guards, doctors and corrections officials as defendants in the suit – and also sued a Tennessee-based private contractor that was acting as the prison’s medical provider called Corizon.

The settlement, which is the largest the city has ever paid out over the death of an inmate, was agreed to on Tuesday by the de Blasio administration. Attorney Debbie Greenberger called the amount “historic ” but said the “stunning and unconscionable” suffering experienced by Bradley could never be matched.

A New York City Law Department spokesman said the settlement “was fair and in the best interests of the city.” Mayor de Blasio, who wasn’t mayor at the time of Ballard’s death, refused to renew Corizon’s contract with Rikers last year and has since installed a new Corrections Commissioner.

“Bradley Ballard’s death was a tragedy and our hearts go out to his family,” the new commissioner, Joseph Ponte said in a statement. “We have zero tolerance for the mistreatment of any inmate.”

Attorney Greenberger said that officers involved in the incident still have jobs, that none of them faced any “significant salary consequences,” and that at least two of them have received promotions.

Rep. John Walker, Arkansas Senator and Civil Rights Lawyer, Arrested for Filming the Police

An Arkansas state senator, who championed legislation that protected a citizen’s right to film or photograph in public, was arrested on Monday for doing just that. Rep. John Walker, along with another man identified as Omavi Kuskukuru (also identified as Omavi Shukur), were arrested on charges of “Obstruction of Governmental Operations” while filming the police conducting a traffic stop in Little Rock.

The arrest took place while police were in the process of arresting two people who had been pulled over in a car without a license for warrants. In all, there are four cops present, including two that are trainees. Little Rock police officers initially questioned Walker about why he was filming and then eventually asked him not to film. They also accused him of “race baiting” when he brought up racial issues regarding police.

Later Kuskukuru can be seen approaching (but still a good distance from) the area where the traffic stop is taking place and being arrested. Next, Rep. Walker can be seen walking around the same area and being followed, then arrested, by one of the officers.

Via the Arkansas Times:

Walker walks up during the stop and begins filming with a cell phone from across the street, an activity noticed by cops on the scene, some of whom know Walker. In time, two officers cross the street to ask Walker what he’s doing and why. He identified himself but said he didn’t need to explain his actions. Officers explained the traffic stop and said the driver was being treated with “total respect.” They also said they agreed he had a right to observe.

The conversation grew heated, however, as Walker explained his interest in treatment of black suspects and made reference to police use of deadly force. That raised the ire of an officer who asked if Walker had ever been a police officer. He questioned whether Walker understood the challenges police face. One officer called Walker a “race baiter” and asked if he’d be interested if police had stopped a white person. The officer said Walker had been trying to film police for years and was just trying to provoke.

Film in another patrol car, taking the driver to jail, has audio of an older officer telling a younger black female officer who’d made the stop about Walker: “His main purpose was to be arrested.” Walker, he said, had been “a thorn in the side of the police department” since he joined the force.

Within hours, the charges had been dropped against Walker, he had been released, and the LRPD had announced it was conducting an internal “investigation.” The next day the city had issued him an apology, which he refused to accept. The charges against Kuskukuru, who is also a lawyer, however were not dropped. Rep. Walker and Kuskukuru held a press conference on Thursday discussing the arrests and the treatment of minorities by police.

Via (ironically enough – #JusSayin #FTP) the NWAhomepage.com:

Walker and Omavi Shukur spoke for nearly an hour about the events that led to their arrest and also about what they say is the mistreatment of black people in Central Arkansas.

“With these tapes, you saw that we did nothing,” Walker said, speaking of dash camera video from police cruisers.

Walker says he and Shukur were peacefully exercising their right to record police interactions when they were approached by officers who made disparaging comments.

The two men were eventually arrested on misdemeanor obstruction charges which have since been dropped. The city has apologized to Walker — an apology he rejected.

“What happens to me happens to many, many people in our community every day,” he said.

Minority neighborhoods, they say, are targeted by overzealous police, but the majority of the time it goes unnoticed.

“There are countless people that don’t have the privileges that Mr. Walker and I have that fall victim to a lot of the biased and draconian practices of the LRPD,” Shukur said.

Walker says he has not decided whether he’ll file a lawsuit against the city, but that the officers involved should face consequences. He also had harsh criticism for Little Rock Police Chief Kenton Buckner and City Manager Bruce Moore — both high ranking African American city officials.

“The system somehow or another imposes upon black people in positions of authority to act like white people… like white people would normally act in the past and that is to mistreat people who are at the bottom end of the socioeconomic ladder.”

There’s several interesting things about this story beyond the simple fact that a state senator was actually out there filming the cops and they were arrogant enough to arrest him for it. One is the attitude the cop is teaching a trainee that anyone filming them is a “thorn in their side” who is just looking to get arrested. That’s a good peek into the reason the culture of the police is so toxic. they are taught from the day they step on the job the bad habits of the “Bad Apples” that came before them.

The other is the display of several prevailing ideas among cops and cop apologists. First, the nonsense that only other cops can determine if a cop is in the wrong and the fact that they get irate if someone without a Magic Uniform dares to question their behavior, in spite of the rapidly escalating number of incidents in which they’ve been caught assaulting, falsely arresting, or even murdering people. Not to mention that all the “Good Cops,” that supposedly make up the vast majority of those behind the shiny badges, are so obviously not bothering to do that.

Their rationalization that the “challenges of being a police officer” should justify their abuses of citizens, even when those citizens are innocent, is a big part of why people have such little trust of the police, especially the poor and minorities who are constantly being harassed by them. Whether people want to acknowledge the role of racism in police abuses or not, the residents of those communities have very real, visible, and at this point well documented reasons for being skeptical of the motivations and actions of the police.

The idea that simple act of someone filming them is considered a provocation by the police is, as always, also rather telling.

“Sorry I Tased You” – Cop Bakes Cake For Woman He Tased

UPDATE: This story has been updated to reflect new information that the former deputy is accused of sending the alleged victim a photo of a cake, along with a text message stating he baked it for her and wanted to give it to her.

A woman in Florida is suing a former Escambia County Sheriff’s Deputy for tasing her with a stun gun, and then apologizing with a photo of a cake that said, “Sorry I Tased You” in blue frosting.

The cake didn’t impress Stephanie Byron. She filed a lawsuit in May.

Associated Press:


On Monday, the county’s Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission announced it had reviewed the case and placed Wohlers on a one-year probationary period from serving at any law enforcement agency in Florida.

The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Pensacola, alleges Wohlers violated Byron’s civil rights, committed battery against her and caused her hardships, including physical injuries, monetary loss, medical expenses, humiliation and mental anguish.

Wohlers’ attorney wouldn’t comment Thursday but denied the allegations in a court document.

The incident happened in June 2015 when Wohlers stopped by an apartment complex where Byron was working.

According to court documents, Wohlers was in his full uniform and “used his apparent law enforcement authority to intimidate, harass, and threaten” Byron about her personal life. The lawsuit says Wohlers took Byron’s tea, and when she went to retrieve it he fired his stun gun at her. She said she was knocked to the floor and the court document says Wohlers “jumped onto Ms. Byron, kneeing her in the chest.” He then removed the stun gun prods from her body and left.

The lawsuit also says Wohlers told his employer that he accidentally discharged his device into a pillow at his house.

Sometime after that, Wohlers baked Byron a cake. Byron’s attorney entered a photo of the cake as an exhibit into the court file.

“The cake Wohlers baked provides his version of the encounter and clearly shows a person Wohlers firing the Taser at Ms. Byron. It also reads “Sorry I Tased You,” the complaint reads. The cake depicts two stick figures in frosting, with one aiming something with black wires at the other.

Wohlers resigned from the sheriff’s office in July 2015.

Wohlers’ attorney denied the allegations in a written response to the complaint. The response also said Wohlers is protected by “qualified immunity” – rights that can shield government officials from civil liability lawsuits if the official did not knowingly violate a citizen’s rights while performing their duties.

Byron is seeking compensatory damages, costs, expenses and reasonable attorney’s fees.
