For the first time since former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was suspended indefinitely by the NFL for delivering a brutal knockout punch right in the face of his then fiancĂ©e, he and his wife, Janay, are speaking out — joining Matt Lauer for exclusive interviews airing Monday and Tuesday on the TODAY Show.

NBC has released this short clip of the Monday interview. Janay makes excuses for Ray Rice, saying this isn't him. Only problem is, it is him, and he did knock her out cold and then tried to drag her out of the elevator.

So protesters try to shut down a highway in San Diego over a grand jury decision in Missouri. It's incomprehensible just how freakin' stupid this is. ABC10 Cameras capture a black guy who says he's trying to get to work, whose car is blocked, absolutely going off on these stupid protesters.

Protesters near San Diego blocked I-5 North, a major local thoroughfare, that left thousands of angry commuters stuck in traffic and unable to get to work.

According to ABC 10, a local ABC news affiliate out of San Diego, a man named Tyree Landrum took matters into his own hands by physically pushing at least one protester off the blocked highway.

Landrum told one of the ABC News photographers, "I got to go to Ross right now, homie. If I don't get there, I'm going to get fired. I've got six f****** kids to feed, homie … m*****f****** get shot every f****** day. Deal with it the right way, not like this.

WATCH: Denver Police Repeatedly Punch Man on Ground, Trip His Pregnant Girlfriend, Then Try to Delete the Evidence From Eyewitness' Cell Phone

Give me the tablet...We can do this the easy way or the hard way

DENVER Video taken by a witness during an arrest shows a Denver police officer punching a suspect in the face six times and then tripping the man’s girlfriend who is seven-and-a-half months pregnant, causing her to land on her belly and face.

The witness who took the video claims an officer then took the tablet he was using to record the arrest, deleted the video file, not realizing it had already been stored on the electronic cloud.

The limited-use video obtained by FOX 31 in Denver shows the suspect’s head bouncing off the pavement from the force of the punches.

According to police reports, the uniformed police officer, Charles “Chris” Jones IV made the arrest after undercover narcotics police officers say they saw the suspect, David Flores, a suspected drug user, stuff a white sock in his mouth that they suspected was full of heroin.

While Jones and his partner Christopher Evans were holding and punching Flores, a woman can be heard screaming. A few seconds later, Mayra Lazos-Guerrero, 25, falls hard on her face when Jones sweeps her feet out from under her. Jones said he did it because he thought she was going to kick him. Jones also cited two reasons for why he punched Flores.

Massachusetts: School Board Bans Term 'Christmas Break' Over ONE Family's Complaint (Video)

We sure wouldn't want to offend that one family...
Students will now be on 'Holiday break'

4,000 people sign a petition urging the school board to reconsider

A Massachusetts school board has banned the term “Christmas Break” due to one family’s complaint.

Back in September, Marshfield Schools approved a name change from “Christmas Break” to “Holiday Break.”

Since then, more than 4,000 people have signed a petition, urging the schools to reconsider.

This week, the school board voted to keep the name change.

School officials say it’s in the best interest of students and the town. The superintendent also stressed that the word “Christmas” will remain on the school calendar, and only the name of the break will change.


Video- Black Friday Makes Its Way to Britain

Black Friday invades Britain. But like the U.S., it's not just long lines and big discounts, there are fist fights, arrests and store closings because of the violence.

Police Chief calls it a mini-riot-
London (AFP) - Police blasted stores for bringing "Black Friday" to Britain, with the US sales event descending into chaotic fist fights as frenzied consumers battled to grab discounted goods.

In scenes of pandemonium around the country, common civility went out the window as yelling customers punched it out in a bid to secure reduced-price televisions and coffee makers.

Police in Manchester said three people had been arrested as the sales spiralled "out of control" after stores in the city opened at midnight.

"The events of last night were totally predictable and I am disappointed that stores did not have sufficient security staff on duty," said Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Peter Fahy.

"People have been trampling on each other and it's been akin to a mini-riot in some of the stores," he said.

"A lady's had her wrist broken, a member of the public in a wheelchair had a TV dropped on them and a security guard in one of the stores has been punched."

More Than $200K Raised For Woman Who Had Her Bakery Business Vandalized During #Ferguson Riots

Great story here...

Natalie DuBose, the owner of Natalie’s Cakes and More in Ferguson, Missouri, was left devastated after her business was unjustly vandalized during the recent riots over a grand jury’s decision not to indict police officer Darren Wilson in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown.

She reached out to her fellow Americans to help her repair her shop damaged by Ferguson protesters earlier this week. Her business had just held its grand opening over the summer.

DuBose set up a GoFundMe page and aimed to raise a modest $20,000. Thousands of generous Americans quickly stunned the small business owner, donating more than $195,000 in roughly one day.

Many conservative websites, personalities and public figures took up the cause, including actress Patricia Heaton, who used her social media influence on Twitter to drive some of her 243,000 followers to the fundraising page. Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh also gave out the web address of the GoFundMe page on the air. (via theblaze)

Another--- New Mexico Woman Says Bill Cosby Sexually Assaulted Her in 1972 (Video)

And this one sounds just like all the other stories where the woman was drugged by Cosby and then sexually assaulted.

Donna Motsinger, who lives in NM said the assault took place in San Francisco in 1972 when she was a single mother working at a popular restaurant in town. She said Bill Cosby walked in one night and started flirting with her. According to Motsinger, Cosby returned the following night and invited her to his comedy show after her shift.

"I was like, 'Of course!' I was very young, very naive, very innocent"

Cosby picked her up in a limo and offered her a drink, she said. By the time they got to the theater, Motsinger said she felt sick. She said she woke up the next morning in her apartment.

"With my clothes off, except for my underwear," she said. "I know I was drugged. I know for sure I was drugged. And I was assaulted. I do know those two things -- absolutely."

TImes-Picayune Endorses Mary Landrieu in LA

Endorsement from the TP basically just points out a long list of times Democrat Mary Landrieu brought home the bacon for Louisiana. They ignore her vote for Obamacare, ignore all the other times she voted with the Democrats and ignore her recent comments about President Obama being unpopular in Louisiana because of race.

"Mary Landrieu has stood up for Louisiana time and again during her 18 years in the U.S. Senate. She fought for our fair share of oil and gas lease revenues. She made sure our communities received vital disaster aid after Hurricane Katrina and the levee breaches, after Hurricane Rita, after Gustav, after Isaac. She understood the need to keep flood insurance premiums affordable long before others in Congress came to that realization.

Her opponent is trying to distract voters from Sen. Landrieu's accomplishments in the Senate. He shouldn't be allowed to get away with that.

The most important question in the Dec. 6 runoff election is who would best represent the interests of Louisiana residents in Washington. The answer is clear: Mary Landrieu.

Her Gulf of Mexico Energy Security Act, which passed in 2006, achieved something Louisiana leaders had tried for decades to do: Require the federal government to give our state and other energy-producing states a significant share of revenues from offshore drilling. By 2017, the act will provide an estimated $500 million each year for restoring Louisiana's coast.

Those revenues will benefit Louisianians for generations to come and help families hold onto the land they love"
