George Zimmerman’s Attorneys Release PHOTOSHOPPED Image


The attorneys for murder suspect George Zimmerman attempted to inflame the public by releasing an obviously Photoshopped picture of their client yesterday.

It’s no coincidence that this shamefully Photoshopped image is released just days after Zimmerman begged the public for more donations to support his lavish lifestyle.

The national media won’t tell you that the image is Photoshopped, even though a photo taken by police the SAME NIGHT shows no swelling, redness or deformity of Zimmerman’s nose.

The good quality police evidence photo taken AFTER the new photo shows superficial scratches on Zimmerman’s face. The police photos do not prove Zimmerman’s claims that he was in a life and death struggle with the unarmed teenager when he shot and killed him in March.

On Wednesday, the AP reported that Zimmerman had created a new defense fund to solicit money from the gullible public. In return for donations, contributors would receive cards with Zimmerman’s signature — an indication that Zimmerman is selling his signature for money.

Culinary Chef explains how he “slowly cooked” his wife for 4 days…

A culinary chef on trial for murdering his wife confessed to police how he slowly cooked his wife for four days.

“I just slowly cooked it and I ended up cooking her for four days,” David Viens, of Lomita, California, said in a taped confession.

Viens admitted he “got violent” with his wife, Dawn, after she began “raising hell” during an alcohol and drug binge. Police had been searching for Dawn since her disappearance on October 18, 2009.

Viens, 49, told police he tightly bound his wife’s hands and feet with rope and duct-taped her mouth so she wouldn’t “drive around wasted and whacked out on coke and drinking.”

Viens said he went to bed, leaving his wife bound and gagged all night. “And that was it. I said, ‘Good night.’”

The restauranteurs said he panicked when he awoke the next morning to find his wife deceased. He placed his wife’s body in a large 55-gallon drum filled with boiling water at his restaurant.

“I just slowly cooked it and I ended up cooking her for four days,” revealed Viens in a taped confession which was played for jurors Tuesday. “I manipulated her so the face was down, and I took some – some things – like weights that we use, and I put them on the top of her body.

The culinary expert then poured “seven or eight pounds of grease” mixed with his wife’s waste from the drum into his industrial size grease trap, which is later sucked out by a grease disposal company.

He hid her skull in the attic of his mother’s Torrence, CA home. The rest of his wife’s remains were buried behind his restaurant.

Viens gave his confession from his hospital bed after he leaped 80 feet off a cliff in Palos Verdes, CA following a brief police chase. Viens is attending his murder trial in a wheelchair.

Viens probably didn’t serve parts of his wife to diners because human flesh is distinctly distasteful to discourage people from eating each other.

Actor Michael Clarke Duncan Dead at 54

I remember him best from his bodyguard role in “The Players Club.” Duncan had been in a Los Angeles hospital since July 13 following a heart attack and died this morning after two months of treatment.

At 6-feet, 5-inches tall and approximately 300 pounds, Duncan is said to have become a vegetarian, and appeared in a video for animal rights organization PETA earlier this year.

Duncan was also nominated for an Academy Award and a Golden Globe for his role as gentle giant prisoner John Coffey in “The Green Mile,” also starring Tom Hanks. Duncan won the role, in part, due to a recommendation by Bruce Willis, who he worked with on 1998’s “Armageddon.” Duncan went on to appear with Willis in three more films — “Breakfast of Champions,” “The Whole Nine Yards” and “Sin City.”

Before he broke into acting, Duncan worked as a bodyguard for stars including Will Smith, Martin Lawrence, Jamie Foxx, LL Cool J, and The Notorious B.I.G.  whose 1997 death prompted him to quit that line of work.

May he Rest in peace…

Celebrity, Dearly Departed, New Movie Release, Whitney Houston

Happy Birthday Whitney Houston…

Today would have been Whitney Houston’s 49th birthday, so in her honor TriStar Pictures is honoring her memory by encouraging folks to check out the trailer for her final film. “Sparkle” which will be released in theatres next Friday (August. 17.). I’ve already seen the film and it was a real tear jerker for me.

The film does includes a few moments that seem eerily prophetic, especially when Whitney says to these girls who play her daughters: “Was my life not enough of a cautionary tale for you?” Houston’s character asks at one point.

Whitney Houston starring as the mom of three daughters who start a Motown girls’ group, was a bit unrealistic to me.

Houston’s character is a former singer wary of the perils of showbiz. She sings “His Eye is On the Sparrow,” which is sure to be a moving moment on the big screen and seems destined for an iTunes release as a single.

Happy Birthday Whitney Houston, 6 months after your death and you’re sorely missed!

How was Chavis Carter (pictured here) shot while handcuffed?

Police in Jonesboro, Arkansas have launched an investigation into how 21-year-old Chavis Carter was shot in the head while he sat handcuffed in the back of a patrol car Saturday night.

According to Officers Keith Baggett and Ron Marsh who was on the scene, “Carter was in the passenger seat of a pickup truck that was pulled over by police just before 10 pm. Officer Marsh found “some marijuana” and several new plastic baggies when he searched Carter.

When they (police) ran Carter’s information through dispatch, they found that he was wanted on a warrant in Mississippi, where he lived. The cops then handcuffed him, searched him again, and put him in the back of the patrol car. While Baggett searched the vehicle, he claims he heard “a loud thump with a metallic sound” on his trunk and saw Marsh motion to him.

The thumping noise, according to the cops, was Carter shooting himself in the head.

The police report attributed the death to a self-inflicted gunshot wound, though when the two officers opened the squad car door, they found Carter’s hands were still cuffed behind his back. The gun, they said, was somehow missed in both searches.

Police believe that Chavis managed to pull out a hidden gun and shot himself in spite of the handcuffs. I’m wondering how is that even possible? 

Carter’s mother, Teresa, however, suspects foul play: “I think they killed him, my son wasn’t suicidal.”

According to Teresa, Carter called his girlfriend while he was pulled over to tell her he’d call her from jail. She also said her son was shot in his right temple, when he was left-handed.

The two officers involved are now on administrative leave until the investigation concludes.
