A corner store clerk in Memphis, Tennessee, shot a black teenager to death last week for shoplifting beer from the store, according to police.
Dorian walked into the store around 10:20 p.m. on Thursday, swiped “at least one beer,” and left, according to an arrest warrant for Ghazali obtained by local CBS affiliate WREG. Police say the clerk “drew his weapon and ran after” the teen, firing several shots at him as he was walking away.
Ghazali returned to the store and told a witness, “I think I shot him,” according to the affidavit. He never called the police to report the shooting.
Two days later, police discovered Dorian’s body a few yards away from Top Stop Shop. He had suffered a gunshot wound to his left leg, according to the affidavit. Ghazali was taken into custody, where police interviewed him and he “admitted to firing several shots.”
Dorian had stopped at the store Thursday on his way to his cousin’s house, his grandmother Effie Fitch told WMC Action News 5. She said she had heard about a shooting that night and prayed her grandson wasn’t the victim.
“It shouldn’t have happened like that,” Fitch told WMC Action News 5. “He was a child and that was an adult. … If he had said something, Dorian’s life could’ve been saved. You don’t shoot nobody Thursday and here it is Saturday, and you ain’t said nothing about it.”
A spokeswoman for the Memphis Police Department declined to comment.

Early last year, a piece of Mac malware came to light that left researchers puzzled. They knew that malware dubbed Fruitfly captured screenshots and webcam images, and they knew it had been installed on hundreds of computers in the US and elsewhere, possibly for more than a decade. Still, the researchers didn’t know who did it or why.
An indictment filed Wednesday in federal court in Ohio may answer some of those questions. It alleges Fruitfly was the creation of an Ohio man who used it for more than 13 years to steal millions of images from infected computers as he took detailed notes of what he observed. Prosecutors also said defendant Phillip R. Durachinsky used the malware to surreptitiously turn on cameras and microphones, take and download screenshots, log keystrokes, and steal tax and medical records, photographs, Internet searches, and bank transactions. In some cases, Fruitfly alerted Durachinsky when victims typed words associated with porn. The suspect, in addition to allegedly targeting individuals, also allegedly infected computers belonging to police departments, schools, companies, and the federal government, including the US Department of Energy.
The indictment, filed in US District Court for the Northern District of Ohio’s Eastern Division, went on to say that Durachinsky developed a control panel that allowed him to manipulate infected computers and view live images from several machines simultaneously. The indictment also said he produced visual depictions of one or more minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct and that the depiction was transported across state lines. He allegedly developed a version of Fruitfly that was capable of infecting Windows computers as well. Prosecutors are asking the court for an order requiring Durachinsky to forfeit any property he derived from his 13-year campaign, an indication that he may have sold the images and data he acquired to others.
Wednesday’s indictment largely confirms suspicions first raised by researchers at antivirus provider Malwarebytes, who in January 2017 said Fruitfly may have been active for more than a decade. They based that assessment on the malware’s use of libjpeg—an open-source code library that was last updated in 1998—to open or create JPG-formatted image files. The researchers, meanwhile, identified a comment in the Fruitfly code referring to a change made in the Yosemite version of macOS and a launch agent file with a creation date of January 2015. Use of the old code library combined with mentions of recent macOS versions suggested the malware was updated over a number of years.
More intriguing still at the time, Malwarebytes found Windows-based malware that connected to the same control servers used by Fruitfly. The company also noted that Fruitfly worked just fine on Linux computers, arousing suspicion there may have been a variant for that operating system as well.
Last July, Patrick Wardle, a researcher specializing in Mac malware at security firm Synack, found a new version of Fruitfly. After decrypting the names of several backup domains hardcoded into the malware, he found the addresses remained available. Within two days of registering one of them, almost 400 infected Macs connected to his server, mostly from homes in the US.
While Wardle did nothing more than observe the IP addresses and user names of the infected Macs that connected, he had the same control over them as the malware creator. Wardle reported his findings to law enforcement officials. It’s not clear if Wardle’s tip provided the evidence that allowed authorities to charge the defendant or if Durachinsky was already a suspect.
According to Forbes, which reported the indictment, Durachinsky was arrested in January of last year and has been in custody ever since. Forbes also reported that Durachinsky was charged in a separate criminal complaint filed in January 2017 that accused him of hacking computers at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. The suspect has yet to enter a plea in the case brought Wednesday. It’s not clear if he has entered a plea in the earlier complaint.
It’s also not yet clear how Fruitfly managed to infect computers. There’s no indication it exploited vulnerabilities, which means it probably relied on tricking targets into clicking on malicious Web links or attachments in e-mails. Wednesday’s indictment provided no details about the Windows version of Fruitfly or whether Linux computers were targeted as well.
The White History of Christmas & How a Real Zio-Grinch Stole It!
By Dr. David Duke
From 1789 to 1989 the first 200 years of the American Constitution it was perfectly legal and very loved by Americans to have Christian and Christmas Cultural Icons on public ground as part of our American fabric. Even the date of our Constitution was signed by its authors with the preface: “In the Year of our Lord.”
In 1989 it became illegal to have any Christian-themed Christmas display on any Federal, State, County or City ground. It became illegal to say any prayers in schools, forbidden to even sing Christmas Carols in them or even call the Christmas holidays, “Christmas Holidays!”
In the height of chutzpah, the same Supreme Court decision that outlawed any Christian Symbol decreed that the oldest symbol of the Jewish Religion, the Menorah, even huge, monster Menorahs could be put up on public ground. Where Christian motifs once stood in front of the White House and city halls, giant Jewish Menorahs became perfectly legal along Rabbis lighting it Jewish rituals!
How did this happen? Who is this strange and powerful, alien Grinch who Stole Christmas?
Here are the parts of my unique Christmas Card I mailed out to my friends, patrons and subscribers: The True Story Christmas!
A Special Message from David Duke on the True History of Christmas
The word Christmas comes from the Old English words Christ’s Mass. In German it is Weihenachten or Holy Night (of the birth of Christ), In Spain, it is Navidad (Nativity), Russia Рождество (the Birth). The early Church of Rome signified December 25 for the birth of Jesus Christ. That date was the Roman Solar Calendar date for winter solstice, the sign of the sun’s nadir: the rebirth of the sun and spring and the life it brings.. It was the most universally important day of ancient Europeans which the church adopted to mark the birth of Christ and the promise of new life from him.. Its religious and cultural significance dovetailed perfectly with the ancient culture of Europe and symbolized their hopes both for themselves and their children.
The Culture of Christmas is deeply embedded in our People
Created 5000 years ago, Stonehenge was a solar and celestial calendar that foretold Christmas to our people as it predicted and celebrates the zenith solstice of the sun in June and the sun’s nadir and rebirth and new life heralded in December. The Christian celebration of the birth of Christ seemed a natural fit with the ancient culture.
In fact the Church incorporated the Christmas (Yule) tree, green wreaths of life and unity, the Snow Father transformed into St Nicklaus (Santa Klaus), gift giving and ancient symbols of new life, love, generosity, and centered on the family, children and community became part of the Christian Christmas amid the cold and darkness of winter. Christian Christmas melded easily to these family and community ethics. It became a universally revered day for White people all over the world.
The White Christian Heritage of America
It’s politically incorrect to say it, but we must remember the American Founding Fathers were 100 percent White and overwhelmingly Christian. Even those of varying religious views universally identified themselves, our culture and nation as “Christian.” The Declaration of Independence claims our rights “are endowed by their Creator” and invokes the “protection of Divine Providence.” The Constitution’s authors marked its date as “In the Year of Our Lord..”
They also openly loved identified with their White heritage. Indeed, one of the first laws they enacted allowed immigration only to “Free White people.” They permitted Christian prayers, hymns in government and almost every President from Washington on down was sworn in on the Christian Bible. They were Christians, White people and the Declaration was extremely nationalist. So, truth is, they were clearly White Nationalists!
The Grinch Who stole Christmas: Hint, he was not a Goy!
Up until 1989 Americans could celebrate Christmas on public ground. Rich and powerful Jewish groups like the American Jewish Committee, the ADL and the Jewish run and financed ACLU waged war on Christmas. (((THEY))) demanded Christmas Carols be outlawed in schools and (((THEY))) succeeded in making Christian symbols illegal on any federal, state or public ground in America. In the ultimate Chutzpah, this arrogant 2 percent demanded to erect the oldest symbol of Judaism, the Menorah, on public ground to commemorate their ancient massacre of Greek Goyim to preserve their race.
The 80 % Christian people of America can’t celebrate Christmas, but the 2% Jewish tribe can put up monster Menorahs celebrating Jewish racism. David Brooks of the 100% Jewish owned NY Times boasted of the “Jewish Takeover of America.” True!
Christian Symbols Banned & Monster Menorahs Erected !
The arrogant Jewish tyrants think that they have won. But, I know we will taste victory, and they know it too! That is why they are desperate to shut us down!
Winter is here, but our sun rises from the darkness to soon illuminate earth and sky —
Our ancestors defeated the Ice Ages. They will certainly defeat this foe!
My Christmas Wish for You and Yours!
I hope you enjoyed this unusual Christmas Card. Perhaps it gave you a smile in a world seemingly gone mad. Yet, Aryan courage and valor always rises in the face of invasionand oppression. It elicits magnificent expressions of our people’s indomitable spirit.
Christmas and its shared Solstice history celebrate renewal of life that stirs in the darkest days of winter, oppression and depression. Let us embrace the beauty and joy of our families and friends, rekindle our faith, steel our bodies, heal our health, inspire our minds, and make our hearts beat with greater love, strength and purpose than ever before. Be Merry this Christmas – Love and Feast and Play and Rest You Brave Warriors. Thank You for letting me Serve You!

On October 9, 1957, Dr. Ewen Cameron, a Scottish-born psychiatrist and director of the Allan Memorial Institute at McGill University in Montreal noted that his 33-year-old patient, Jean Steel, was on her 23rd day of drug-induced sleep.
Steel had undergone four electroconvulsive shock-therapy treatments. Several more were planned. In previous days, while awake, she had shown some aggressiveness toward staff, behaviour Cameron felt needed to be “broken up.”
He wondered whether it might be useful for her to watch a “movie where hostility was well expressed,” as a way of working out her own “hostilities.” A librarian was tasked with finding something suitable. She had not been weighed in several weeks. Temperature recordings were taken of her “earlobes and feet.”
“Once the patient is de-patterned we will start psychic driving,” Cameron wrote. “She is rather restive and antagonistic when awake, but not nearly as difficult as she was when she started.”
Garnet Steel met Jean Watts in Montreal in the 1940s. He was in the army. She liked to dance. He called her “Jeanie.” They fell in love, married, honeymooned in New York City and settled in the Eastern Townships south of Montreal. They played bridge, curled and had loads of friends.
The couple had a child who died a few months after birth, but in 1952 they had another, a daughter named Alison. She was healthy and gorgeous, but Jeanie found she couldn’t cope. She sank into a sadness that wouldn’t lift. Her parents back in Montreal began asking around. They heard about this Dr. Cameron at the Allan, a past-president of the American Psychiatric Association. They heard he was the best. Jeanie Steel was admitted to the AMI for treatment on May 1, 1957.
“What they did to my mother was torture,” Alison Steel, now 65, says from Knowlton, Que. “It is horrific. It is unbelievable.”
What wasn’t publicly known in 1957, and what would not be revealed until decades later, was that Cameron’s work at AMI was funded in part by the Central Intelligence Agency as part of Project MK-Ultra, a covert program in human mind control – brainwashing.
Panic seized the United States at the conclusion of the Korean War in 1953. Some in Congress feared returning American POWs had been brainwashed by their Chinese captors, transforming patriotic GIs into zombie sleeper agents, waiting to be activated by their Communists masters. Newspaper stories fanned the hysteria.
“The totalitarians have misused the knowledge of how the mind works for their own purposes,” a Dutch psychologist wrote in the New York Times Magazine. “They have applied the Pavlovian technique – in a far more complex and subtle way, of course – to produce the reflex of mental and political submission of the humans in their power.”
Cameron, the visionary, believed schizophrenia and some other mental illnesses could be cured. (Jeanie Steel likely suffered from postpartum depression.) He dismissed the idea of a psychiatrist’s couch, a doctor listening and talking a patient back to health. His ambition was to remake the person entirely, scrubbing their brain of its illness and rebuilding their psyche from scratch.
To do so, patients would need to be “de-patterned,” Cameron-speak for loading them full of drugs – Seconal, Nembutal, largactal, insulin, LSD, PCP, uppers, downers, curare and more – and subjecting them to massive, repeated jolts of electroshock therapy. Patients were kept in drug-induced comas for 22 hours a day in a “sleep room,” primed for Cameron’s “psychic driving,” a process where a message, or even a single word, was broadcast on a loop over a loudspeaker in the room for days on end.
Jeanie Steel did 18- and 29-day stints in the sleep room. At different points, according to her file – of which Alison obtained a copy from the Canadian Department of Justice in 2015 – she threatened to kill herself; asked the doctors to “please” turn down the loudspeaker; complained of burning in her ears and feet; and screamed that she felt like she was being nailed to the “cross.”
One of Cameron’s entries in the file from October 1957 notes: “Patient walked about room this morning, out in the hall, appears more restless than previously, stared at the speaker and said, ‘That thing up there, up on the wall, my ear is burning, my ear is not burning. But that tries to make up my mind. That’s not my mind. Is that my mind?'”
Jeanie was discharged from the institute in December 1957. She went home to her family, destroyed after a total of six months in Dr. Cameron’s care. She died in 2002. Dr. Cameron went on to become the president of the World Psychiatric Association, dying of a heart attack while hiking in 1967.
Alison Steel keeps a manila folder full of her mother’s papers and old photographs. Her favourite image of Jeanie is from before she was born. Her hazel eyes are wide, and her auburn hair cut to the shoulder.
“She looks like an angel,” Steel says. “But I never got to know that person. They stole my mother from me. They used her as a human guinea pig. They stripped her of her emotions.”
In the years after 1957, Jeanie would spend hours sitting in the dark, or in her room. When she drove, she kept the flicker on to keep her “company.” She once arranged all the patio furniture outside, placing sticks wrapped in tinfoil on the chairs, declaring it was Sherbrooke Street. She spray-painted a white living room ceiling in red swirls, and spray-painted the toilet seat silver.
Alison couldn’t ask her mother for advice; she had nothing to give. She was present – she would make grilled cheese sandwiches for her daughter and her friends – but never fully there.
“My mom could talk to me about her life before this happened to her,” Steel says. “But she couldn’t talk about what happened to her. I didn’t know where her mind was.”
In 2015 Alison Steel initiated a legal action against the Canadian government, which also funded the experiments. A few months ago, she received a $100,000 settlement. “It wasn’t about the money,” she says. “I was seeking justice for my mother – and my father. They had been young and happy.”
Garnet Steel passed away in 2007. Alison now works with kindergarten kids. She loves zipping up their coats, giving them hugs, listening to their stories and showing them the kind of warmth her mother was never able to show her. “It’s what I am meant to do,” she says. “I know that my mother loved me, in my heart of hearts, and I loved her.”
New York City Police officers were caught on a grocery store surveillance video beating a young African American man who was holding his hands up. The police say that their reason for beating the youth, who was clearly trying to surrender to the violent NYPD thugs was because they “thought” he had stolen a $3 slice of pizza.
As it turned out, there was no pizza stolen.
But facts didn’t matter to Officer Lenny Lutchman and his partner Pearce Martinez, who administered the brutal beating to Thomas Jennings, 24, in a Brooklyn grocery store.
Right after Jennings raises his hands, suddenly, Lutchman’s partner Pearce Martinez charges in and delivers a running-right handed punch to Jenning’s head.
Punch after punch followed, as Lutchman quickly took his cue and began raining down punches and baton strikes as well.
The whole time, Jennings just curls up to endure the beating. He never once tries to fight back or even flee. This did not stop the beating.
Officer Martinez can be seen in the video handcuffing Jennings. All the while, Officer Lutchman continues beating him, even though Jennings has his hands behind his back the whole time.
“I didn’t ever know it was coming,” Jennings said to the New York Daily News.
Jennings was actually charged with “robbery” and was denied bail for nearly a week.
After that, prosecutors released him and declined to present the dubious case to a grand jury.
Amy Rameau, Jennings’ attorney, explained that she is confident the entire case will be thrown out or dropped, as there was no robbery whatsoever.
“It’s horrendous what they did to him,” Rameau said to the Daily News. “He had his hands up. He didn’t pose a threat to anyone in that store. It was an absolute use of excessive force.”

WASHINGTON — An F.B.I. counterterrorism supervisor is under internal investigation after a woman stole his gun following a night of heavy drinking in a North Carolina hotel, according to documents and government officials.
In July, Robert Manson, a unit chief in the F.B.I.’s international terrorism section, had his Glock .40-caliber handgun, a $6,000 Rolex watch and $60 in cash stolen from his room at the Westin hotel in Charlotte, N.C., according to a police report.
The episode is an embarrassing mishap for the F.B.I. As a unit chief assigned to the bureau’s headquarters, Mr. Manson oversees all terrorism investigations in the Midwest and the Carolinas. An F.B.I. spokesman, Michael P. Kortan, said the incident was the subject of an internal investigation and declined to give additional comment.
Mr. Manson and other senior agents were in Charlotte for training, according to a law enforcement official familiar with the episode. The agents later told the police that they had been drinking with women who said they were exotic dancers, according to a second person who was briefed on the investigation but, like the first, was not authorized to discuss it publicly.
“Investigators determined that the victim, Robert Manson, met a woman in the hotel bar the prior night and took her back to his hotel room,” Robert Tufano, a spokesman for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, said in a statement.
At 6:30 the next morning, police officers for the department were called to the hotel. Mr. Manson was incapacitated because of alcohol, according to the police report, which he did not file himself. A fellow agent, Kevin Thuman, gave the report, which says the theft happened from 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. The hotel bar closes at 2 a.m.

When we hear about a crisis taking place somewhere in the world, many of us feel powerless and want to help in any way we can. For many people, donating money to relief workers seems like a good way to contribute, but how can you be sure that your money is actually reaching those in need? If you donated money to the Red Cross during the Ebola crisis, you will be disheartened to learn that 20 percent of what you donated was stolen by people working for the organization.
Fraudulent practices carried out by staff members of the Red Cross and its partner organizations caused the company to lose $6 million that was donated to fight against Ebola. According to the Red Cross, an internal investigation into the handling of the money donated during the height of the Ebola crisis uncovered several incidents of fraud in all of the countries affected by the outbreak.
The illness took the lives of 11,000 people as it made its way across Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia, and donations poured in as many felt the international response was not quick enough. The outbreak started in Guinea in 2013, killing more than 2,500 in that country alone. The Red Cross sent more than 6,000 volunteers to help people affected through education, mapping and safe burials.
The $6 million stolen from the organization is one fifth of the total amount they had earmarked for fighting the outbreak, and they say they are working with the governments of the countries involved to pursue legal options against the parties involved.
One of the fraudulent incidents took place in Liberia. There, the Red Cross said it lost $2.7 million through inflated payments that were made for payroll and volunteer stipends as well as relief items.
In Guinea, a clearance service provider is accused of furnishing them with over-estimated or fake bills, leading to the loss of $1.17 million in that country. Meanwhile, in Sierra Leone, the Red Cross uncovered collusion between some of its staffers at the time and a bank, which led to the disappearance of $2 million.
The Red Cross said that it was “outraged” by the discovery and will be implementing new plans to prevent corruption through audits, training, investigations, and spending caps in settings considered to be high-risk.
The organization’s Undersecretary General for Partnerships, Dr. Jemilah Mahmood, said: “We are pursuing every possible avenue to reclaim all funds that have been misappropriated, diverted, or otherwise illegally taken. This includes working with authorities in affected countries and elsewhere as appropriate.”
The Red Cross also said it would be waiving any legal immunities or privileges to make sure everyone involved is held accountable.
Long history of questionable practices
This is bad news for an organization that is quickly losing public support thanks to a series of headlines in recent years showing widespread fraud. In one particularly egregious example, it was discovered that the Red Cross spent donations received to help those affected by the Haiti earthquake very poorly. After collecting almost half a billion dollars in an effort to build homes for displaced people, it was later discovered they only built six permanent homes. Internal memos showed they saw the disaster as a great fundraising opportunity.
To add insult to injury, it was revealed that they spent some of the donated money teaching children hand-washing skills – even though they did not have access to water or soap, which the Red Cross admitted in an internal evaluation.
With so many questionable practices, more and more people are sending their money to more honest organizations that actually help people in need rather than lining their own pockets.
