‘F*ck the police’: ‘Disturbed’ online protesters want #JusticeForMikeBrown

http://twitter.com/#!/Sonyers/status/498505336241000448

Missouri teenager Mike Brown was killed Saturday when he was shot Saturday by Ferguson, Mo. police.

Here are more details about the incident from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said one shot was fired by the officer’s gun inside the car during the struggle, and that the officer fired multiple times at Michael Brown, 18, as he ran away.

He said the shots that hit Brown were “more than just a couple but I don’t think it was many more than that.” He said an autopsy was pending and that a toxicology test would take as long as six weeks to determine whether Brown had alcohol or drugs in his system.

Angered over the incident, many took to Twitter to call for justice, using the hashtag #JusticeForMikeBrown.

‘Fast and Furious’ actor Paul Walker reportedly dies in car crash; Updated

http://twitter.com/#!/Rui/status/406971684298960896

TMZ is reporting that Paul Walker, star of the “Fast and Furious” films, died today in a car crash in Santa Clarita, Calif.

Walker, 40, and a passenger reportedly were killed when their Porsche slammed into a post or tree and burst into flames. TMZ reports that Walker “was in Santa Clarita for a car show to support the Philippines typhoon relief effort, and had been taking friends out for rides in his new Porsche GT.”

Like many celebrities, Walker had been the subject of death hoaxes before, making the news even more difficult to believe.

Proposed Kermit Gosnell movie breaks Indiegogo fundraising record

http://twitter.com/#!/notoserfdom/status/456930163448881152

As Twitchy reported, “FrackNation” director Phelim McAleer and his team are hoping to make a film about Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell, who is currently serving life in prison. Though the filmmakers are still far from reaching their goal of $2.1 million, they have become the most funded movie ever on fundraising site Indiegogo.

The cause has so far raised $930,505 in less than three weeks. Deadline Hollywood reports that “Gosnell” has bested fundraising efforts by celebrities such as James Franco ($327,929) and Shemar Moore ($638,983)
