"N*****S & Cars"


I know us brothers love our whips more than our houses. (Hey, what's that saying? "You can live in your car but you can't drive your house." ) But come on now Birdman, a 2 million dollar whip? WTF? Two large? My man, do you know how much interest you could be getting on two million dollars every year? I guarantee you that the Bugatti you just purchased will be losing value with each passing day. Hey, it's cool to be "hood rich", but it's not cool to be stupid with your money. I have seen too many ballers go broke spending their money like it was made by Milton Bradley. And Birdman, you might want to give fellow producer, Swizz Beatz a call before you "let it rain" on some damn European car manufacturer.

I won't even go the you could give your money to charity route, because it's yours. Although, you are from New Orleans and, well, just let your conscience be your guide my brother.

"Ridin 2G 'llac on......dubs
Ounces....quarters....halves...bricks
Nigga I done sold all that shit
soon as....my, tour stop
Bought five Bentley Azures...props
TV's must...buttons must....
CMB...platinum plus
What the.....fuck...hold on
Everybody get yo' motherfuckin roll on"


"Birdman" if we are going to roll in a two million dollar whip, it had damn well better be rolling on air.

Will somebody tell Ben Quayle to STFU? I swear some people have no shame. You of all people should not be calling out the president of these divided states.

"In a new campaign ad, an Arizona congressional candidate accuses President Barack Obama of being “the worst president in history.”

"He might know a thing or two about how men in the White House are judged by the public; he’s the son of a vice president perhaps best known for enduring ridicule after he flubbed the spelling of the word “potato.”

Ben Quayle, the son of George H.W. Bush’s running mate, is one of 10 candidates in the GOP primary race in Arizona’s conservative 3rddistrict (It went for McCain by 15 points in 2008 and for Bush by almost 20 in 2004.) In a new ad, he says that “Barack Obama is the worst president in history” and promises to “knock the hell” out of Washington if elected. "


My man, your daddy was Dan Quayle. Let me repeat that: DAN QUAYLE! Nuff said.

Finally, many of you sent me e-mails today (thanks for that, you all keep me on top of things) and commented on this blog about the passing of Mitrice Richardson, a woman whose picture I had posted on my sidebar for weeks. No need to repeat the story, you all know what happened by now.

Still, it was amazing to watch the main stream media ignore a story that we all know would have been given wall to wall coverage from the day she went missing until her skeletal remains were found, if she had only been from a different demographic. The fact that foul play might have been involved and the disgraceful way that her family was treated should give us all cause for pause.

We still don't know what happened that night in Malibu, but hopefully we will find out soon. Until then, let's hope that this young lady and her family has finally found some peace.

I'm out.

Not going into Mitrice -- I feel like setting some people on fire over that.

Birdman? Didn't know he was still around. And he bought himself a Bugatti. Now I know that rappers and sports athletes aren't the greatest when it comes to money management, but you also have guys like Bill Gates, et al., quietly buying cars like these with nothing more than those slight pangs of envy shown by the masses, especially when they see these cars (but not their owners) on those automotive blogs and magazines.

I know that wasn't the point, but I had to put that one out there.

And who gives a fuck what Ben Quayle thinks?

I read about this yesterday at work..I guess crime pays when your stealing from your artists...The original Cash Money Millionaires disbanded.Various members sued. One of the best producers and made some of the sickest beats, Manny Fresh, pretty much said "fuck ya'll". Lil Wayne was getting paid like he was working for min wage..I can go on an on, but I know 1 thing - Baby is shady as hell. But dude does flip his money too, 1 of his investments of all things is OIL. He dabbles in the stock market. That 30 million dollar investment he received from Universal did them right - And they get to keep publishing and masters. Pretty Fucking Good Deal.

The MSM did better than usual when covering the story of a missing Black woman, but there was still a whole lot to be desired.

I think that Black bloggers did an amazing job of keeping Mitrice's story out front. That's the beauty of the new media, the MSM doesn't control everything anymore, we have our own.

I also hope that Mitrice gets justice. I am hoping the FBI will get involved because I don't think anyone expects the LAPD or LA County Sheriff to investigate themselves.

Ultimately I just hope that Mitrice is resting in peace and that her family will find peace as well.

Wait just a minute! You mean to tell me the police did not even notify the family first that they found what may be Mitrice's body. The family had to hear about it on the news. How cruel, thoughtless, unsympathetic, and downright disrespectful!

Aren't they suppose to first let the family know, have someone in the family come in first to see if they can identify and verify that it is her? Even if it was skeleton remains, the clothing, a piece of jewelry, a shoe, or something of hers. Like Keith Sweat says...Somethin just ain't right!

I keep telling y'all that all our police departments in every state in America needs a cleanup and an overhaul. And they wonder why it is so much mistrust of them amongst minorities. Tell them to pick a card and each card will say the same thing because they don't give a dung about minorities.

@Mr. Field

Sheriff Baca needs to be put on blast and investigated. There are so many things wrong here. The first was letting Mitrice leave the Sheriff's station in the middle of the night with no money, ID, or phone.

And the Sheriff is being vindictive toward Mitrice's family because they're suing the Sheriffs department, as well they should.

That's why I'm hoping the FBI will get involved or the California Attorney General.

This is not over. Lot's of people are watching.

Yes it is his money, and why would Black people be comparing him to Bill Gate's? these are two different men, Bill Gate's doe's not Flaunt his wealth, this man is, when this young black man get's caught in a snare, and his money is all gone, Bill Gate's will still be a Wealthy white man, sad to say, but, when some black men become wealthy, they go into the competition mode, and with who? the white man!

I live in California, i don't know what happened to this young lady, but, her mising took place doing the time OBAMA became President, black folk was getting it left and right, it was a pattern, Young Black men were being Killed, by White Police officer's every week, i was waiting for a alert signal to go off, but, it never happened, i was waiting for Black Blogger's to sound the alarm, they never did, not a Black Blogger sounded the needed Alarm, to tell black folk we need to WATCH OUR BACK'S! for if you stayed out at three o'clock partying, STOP! if you go to, Restaurant's in a predominately White Neighborhood at night, STOP! MATRICE was at a Restaurant in a Racist part of California when all of this happened, white folk was going CRAZY and Black folk was doing business as usual, not paying ATTENTION! Black Blogger's were writing about FOX NEW'S and GLENN BECK.

Black men were being murdered and stabbed by a White man, this had been going on since May! and we are just finding out about it, a week ago, how was this kept quiet for so long? field do you know? how did this slip by you?

"Barack Obama is the worst president in history."

This Republican chain letter has been making the rounds for sometime, and, although it's morphed into several permutations, the message and the strategy are still the same--hit the president, hit him hard, and hit him often, with one denigrating statement, or image, after the other, the way an Ad campaign is run, until the consumer begins to see it your way, if by no other power than the dent of repetition, casting the Democrats and the president as unfit for office, and bad for America.

I'd like to tell you that the American people are too savvy to fall for such an obvious ploy. I said that I'd like to tell you that, but I can't.

The fact is: Opinion polls, if used to measure the effectiveness of a campaign strategy, are showing that this campaign to rub the shine off the image of President Obama, and to tarnish the achievements of Democrats, has more than legs, it has hands and feet, even if it is headless, and brainless, and appeals to those in the populace who are equally headless, and brainless.

Lest you believe that repetition if powerless to create demand for a product, or reduce the demand for another, I challenge you to spend sometime with your own television turned on, and actually take a closer look at the Ads that are running there, examining them both for content and repetition.

Certain elements are not only stated again and again, but are stated in such a way that the repetition is disguised, so that you won't be aware of, or bored by, the repetition.

But boredom is not the Ads' biggest potential drawback, and potential weakness, it's indifference.

Ad execs actually see repetition as a good thing. They see it as vital to their selling of the products they're advertising, and to your remembering their products, and selecting them over the competition, next time you're in the mood to spend, or to buy.

But you knew this already!

Republicans don't fear that you'll grow bored with their negative Ad campaigns, their attacking Democrats and the president--by word of mouth, by use of television Ads, and the sharp tongues of pundits--for they know one inescapable fact: Repetition works.

It works whether you're selling a car, or selling a party.

It works whether you're out to smear a president, show his feet of clay, punch holes in his accomplishments, and his reputation, or present him as out-of-touch with the common folk, slow to respond during crises, inept as a leader, or in the back-pocket of Labor, auto manufacturers, and the nation's largest banks.

It works.

Actually, it works just fine, or television advertising revenue would take a big hit, but, instead of a hit, ESPN, CBS, NBC, and ABC, command millions of dollars to run an Ad, millions for just a few seconds of air time--the amount of money contingent on the ratings during a particular time slot, and the number of viewers a particular show or event, such as the Superbowl, can attract.

It works. And we'll see just how well it works during the upcoming Fall elections.

Actually the Bugatti would be a good investment as long as he didn't drive it all over the place and showed off. The vehicle actually costs something like $3.2 million to build and the only reason why it exists is because it gives good publicity to the parent company.

R.J., that's a good point. But a car is still a car. I am not too up on the Bugatti so you might be right.And somehow I doubt my man was thinking about long term investments when he got it. Let's hope he turns around and flips it for say 2.5 million. Then I will write a post apologizing to him.

Oh. Sure. If she'd been white? Yeah. Like Chandra Levy? Who might have been murdered by California Representative Gary Condit?

Or like some nameless white prostitutes?

Richardson committed a minor crime. Subsequently her family claimed she had mental problems, which probably led her into doing something stupid that caused her death -- without any help from the cops.

Anyway, since you believe there would have been heavy press attention given to the story of a somewhat unstable white woman who disappeared without a trace, can you give me an example?

Meanwhile, as we know, many women who disappear are murdered by their boyfriends or husbands. Sometimes they are killed by a stranger -- not a cop -- who appears to offer help. Now that Richardson's remains have been found, maybe the circumstances of her death will come out.

The fact that foul play might have been involved AND the disgraceful way that her family was treated should give us all cause for pause.

The way your sentence is written, you have implicated the police in her death.

It looks like someone in the Police Department owes the family an apology for handling the release of information without adequate sensitivity, but that's it.

no_slappz said...

black diaspora copied:

"Barack Obama is the worst president in history."

Too soon to tell. But he's on track. However, at this point, the record-holder is Jimmy Carter.

Obama is a political descendant of Carter's. Hopefully his only one. Carter took a troubled post-Vietnam War economy and turned it into a shambles.

He enacted the Windfall Profits Tax on oil companies, which led to an increase in oil imports from the middle east.

He ended Regulation Q, a banking law, and that act started the collapse of the Savings & Loan industry.

His administration enacted the Community Reinvestment Act, which was the first step toward the mortgage crisis of the last three years.

He cowered when Iranian revolutionaries seized the American Embassy in Tehran and held 60 Americans hostage for 444 days.

He pushed solar energy on the US public. It failed then, just as it is failing now.

Obama may duplicate, repeat or approximate many of Carter's fatal mistakes. When Carter was elected mortgage rates were around 7%-8%. By the time he left office, those rates were up to 12%-13%.

Mortgage rates today are 4.5% -- if you qualify for a loan. We're now faced with a problem of too many deadbeats who are no longer creditworthy. Thus, even if mortgage rates were 1%, the housing market would lack qualified buyers.

The current predicament suggests Obama will take a drastic step, and it too will be the wrong step.

no_ slappz,

Remember the Natalie Holloway coverage?

Mitrice was an equally beautiful young lady who disappeared in an exclusive part of California. Seems like it would have made good coverage for the 24 hour MSM?

Why the disparity? HINT: it wasn't because of the minor criminal charges.

Would the police put an equally beautiful young white woman out on the streets in the middle of the night? I don't think so.

Experience & historical knowledge are why we see things differently. There are many, many, AA (and other WOC) missing in this country- yet very little to no media coverage. Yet, if an "American Beauty" goes missing- we hear about her ad nauseum. WTF is up w/ that?

To the infamously out of touch no_slappz, Levy got 24-7 coverage because she was a) white and b) connected to a Congressman. This young woman, who by the own police accounts was mentally impaired, was allowed to wander into the desert by the Malibu cops with no medical attention. And living in LA, the only folks reporting on this issue constantly were Pacifica and 102.3 KJLH (the R&B station owned by Stevie Wonder). So MSM barely treated this missing Black woman as a concern and left it to Pop radio and a community-funded Hippie channel that can barely keep the lights on. So the cops and MSM failed this young woman and her family. Once again no_slappz, you don't know jack, so please stop talking.

My man and I were just talking about this ignorant coon Baby. Like Puffy buying a Maybach for his 16 year son, this is fool and his money soon departed. And yes, he could have reinvested that money to help NOLA. How many homes could this fool have renovated for the community that made him rich in the first place? Here's the deal with true ballers like Gates and Jobbs -- they're educated enough not to waste their money on foolish things and not to floss it everywhere either. Everyone knows Bill Gates is rich, but he's not going to show up to work in a Rolls Royce. Its tacky and foolish.


And yes, Ben Quayle, given his family relations, to diss Obama is Pete Rose's kid talking smack about players who use steroids. Given that his old man is the only VP contender in modern history possibly as dumb ass the Wasila Hillbilly, he really shouldn't talk. But hey, its AZ, where the GOP is so desperate to scare white people they've recreated de facto Jim Crow and are one of the main folks pushing to overturn the 14th Amendment.

"I won't even go the you could give your money to charity route, because it's yours"

I hear this so many time from black people...it's his money he can do what he wants with it. How many times have we heard this excuse before. I could never comprehend that statement being made by black people. Most of us black people work for white owned businesses, companies, corporations etc. Why do whites and other ethnic groups have a responsibility to invest in and employ black people but rich black people like this "birdman" character don't?

I look at some of these rappers with clothing lines where they outsource the manufacturing jobs to 3rd world counties when there are so many black ghettos that are no better off than a 3rd world country. I look at a lot of these rich black entertainers and athletes who's sole extent of giving back to the black community is charity. Yet they invest their wealth with whites creating jobs and economic prosperity for them while giving us nothing more than charity. Name one rich person black or white person who doesn't give money to charity. This is no financial sacrifice for them. This is nothing more than a tax write off.

Why wont black people (leaders media bloggers) ask questions why rich blacks wont invest in these depress lower class black communities and do the things we complain that whites and the government wont do for us. Are black people only suppose to expect this from whites, Asians, Latinos, Arabs, Jews etc and or federal government but not from black people because "it's their money and they can do what they want with it"...including economically ignoring us?

I realize that rich blacks makeup no more than appox 2% of our population but that's no excuse to continue to allow them to hide behind tax write offs and tax shelters and do nothing else. At what point are we going to hold our black wealthy class accountable to the same standard we do for wealthy whites and others that most of us work for?

The Veyron actually cost $5million each to build, so Volkswagon lose some $3 million every time they sell one.

The new Super Sport version is electronically limited to just 415 kph, because at it's top speed the car will destroy a set of tires in 15 minutes and burn through a full tank of gas in 12 minutes.

Nobody has a responsibility to hire anyone but you do have a responsibility not to discriminate.

And how do you know Birdman doesn't employ blacks???

It'll be a whose who of American corporations.

Plenty of rich blacks have made investments in the inner city and brought jobs to the residents beginning the great Magic Johnson.

Wrong. Chandra Levy got media coverage because the last person known to have seen her was a Congressman. Her race had no impact.

In the last year there were two cases of disappearing young white women in NY City. There was brief media coverage, but neither case involved obvious foul play -- like the Holloway case. Hence, the coverage of the women in NY City evaporated.

One of the women turned up alive in another part of the country. She had a little breakdown and disappeared for a while. I'm not sure about the other.

This young woman, who by the own police accounts was mentally impaired, was allowed to wander into the desert by the Malibu cops with no medical attention.

Get your story straight. Her family said, after the fact, she had some mental problems. What does that mean? Too vague to matter.

Meanwhile, since when are the Malibu police patrolling the desert? If she were released from a Malibu precinct house, she was in a populated area near the ocean.

Furthermore, she was 25, not 12. Police departments rarely offer car service. When an adult is released, the adult walks out the station-house door and is on his/her own.

And living in LA, the only folks reporting on this issue constantly were Pacifica and 102.3 KJLH (the R&B station owned by Stevie Wonder).

That's more coverage than most missing whites get.

This reminds me of a missing white guy story here in Brooklyn. About 10 years ago a 25-year-old white guy from my neighborhood disappeared. He simply did not come home one cold winter night. He'd left his parent's house saying he was walking to his place, where he, his girlfriend and child lived. Never got there.

After enough time had passed for the cops to declare him a missing person, a one-paragraph article appeared in a NY tabloid paper. Flyers posted by family and friends asking for information appeared on neighborhood lampposts. Nothing. No luck. No news. No body. No money missing from bank accounts. Nothing.

Friends began suggesting other friends had killed him and were covering up. Crazy rumors flew. Every scenario included a crime.

About four months later his body was found. Where? In a storage area below the subway tracks running between his place and his parent's place.

He was drunk and decided to walk home along the subway tracks, which is something some dummies in Brooklyn do when the weather is bad. But the lighting is often poor down there, and he did not notice the cover over the storage area was off. He fell in and broke his neck. No one noticed till the weather got warmer and his corpse began to smell.

So MSM barely treated this missing Black woman as a concern and left it to Pop radio and a community-funded Hippie channel that can barely keep the lights on. So the cops and MSM failed this young woman and her family. Once again no_slappz, you don't know jack, so please stop talking.

A week after this guy's disappearance the only people maintaining an active search were family and friends. No radio station or newspaper mentioned chimed in.

When it comes to missing persons, you can file a report, but police departments devote very little time to these cases. Race is irrelevant.

you can't even compare the two cases. they are too different, and the news cycle and number of outlets for information is completely changed from when chandra disappeared.

I mean, there are a whole lot of white folks who don't consider you one of them.

To the infamously out of touch no_slappz, Levy got 24-7 coverage because she was a) white and b) connected to a Congressman.

a--absolutely FALSE
b--OF COURSE. and that was reason ONE.

REASON TWO: she was young and female. that's why the story got coverage. you honestly believe, even given the angle of the member of congress, that if she'd been black, there would have been no media attention? that's just absurd.

you can't even compare the two cases. they are too different, and the news cycle and number of outlets for information is completely changed from when chandra disappeared.

media attention wouldn't have saved mitrice or found her remains sooner. good cops and non-racist restaurant owners would have!


Maria, I normally concur with you but you're dead wrong about A. If LA media spent half as much time on covering this case as they did corruption in Bell, CA -- she might be alive today.

You're right -- a 'dead hooker' connected any politician is sure to get coverage. But even if Chandra Levy wasn't accuse being a Congressman's side piece, a missing white woman in DC is bound to send the rating-obsessed TV news media into a frenzy.

Mitrice Richardson's travesty was ignored the press because young Black and Brown women going missing simply don't get more than a blip on the radar. We can cover young white women going missing in Aruba but ignore a young mentally ill Black woman who went missing from the Malibu police station?

If Mitrice Richardson had been a young white woman from Orange County that the would wandered out of the Sheriff's office half out her mind -- the LA County PD would have had a manhunt and Nancy Grace would have featured her face at least once again.

That the media loves to chase missing white women and shark attacks during the summer meant that this young girl didn't get the kind of scrutiny that her case deserved. And that same level of Natalie Holloway coverage could have helped someone find this girl before it was too late. Just sad.

Yes, the cops should have been paying attention and the restaurant owners should have done more than simply shoo her away. But the media isn't totally innocent here.

maria said...

you live in LA, so you know what local coverage mitrice's case did or didn't get. i do know she was on the cover of people. don't watch nancy grace so i have no idea if she covered this or not.

she disappeared in september, so i don't think your summer theory is applicable.

i live in DC and have many connections to the news media, so i know what coverage chandra's case got, and why. (i also know the cops DROPPED the case, and it was solved by the washington post).

i urge you to read that link i posted. some say mitrice might have been found if the FBI had agreed to help. they didn't. that seems wrong.

maybe the press should have pushed more on that. i can tell you that the LAT is bankrupt and a mere shadow of itself. there are so few real journalists left in LA. it's basically become a throw-away afternoon paper. seriously, the deadlines for the next day's paper are 4 pm. that's insane. they don't cover breaking court stories anymore--no staff.

how well did they cover the guy shot by the cop who "thought" he was using his taser?

do you fault the LAT generally for their coverage of minorities?

you KNOW what i think--i've written before--about the missing white woman coverage issue. i was disgusted by the UVA murder coverage.

but you need to look at this chronically. all the halloway coverage--the big national stuff--occurred months if not years after she disappeared. mitrice has been gone less than a year. i would love to see vanity fair do a big takeout on what happened. maybe they will.

you're a rabble-rouser. write an opinion piece for the LAT. contact the ombudsman. put them on the spot. or LAWeekly, if that's still around. tell them what you think. you on FB? put the news on your status. call it an outrage.

citizen journalism rocks. take a look at this page--my friend did it, best coverage of the entire trial. all volunteer effort NOT part of the mainstream.

http://whomurderedrobertwone.com/

maria said...

also, please let me clarify your remarks--i said if chandra had been black the story still would have been covered. and you equated that to involving a hooker. that was NOT my association.

about FB--i put the news of mitrice on my status when the news broke. so wanted her to be found alive.

NO Slappz sometimes you should just sit it out, don't you have any respect for anything?

Even if we can't give you all the anecdotal evidence in the world black folks know in their bones that they are treated different than white folks, and the same goes for poor white folks when compared to rich folks.

So cut the crap and stop pissing on folks and let folks air their suppositions and assumptions, hell its all many of us have.

Field I think that restaurant owner needs to be called out. I disagree with that insensitive cad NO Slappz I don't think the restaurant folks would have been so callous if the girl had been white. I worked at a restaurant that was fairly upscale and I can tell you there was sometimes a difference in the way problems with clientele were handled.

Her grandmother was willing to pay the bill over the phone but they came up with some bs reason about why they couldn't accept it.

But here is the real problem. A young woman is clearly out of it according to your own and your employees observations, you talk to a relative who offered to come and pick her up but you choose to call the police.

I hope this haunts him for the rest of his life. As far as I am concerned the insensitivity of the restaurant owner puts blood on his hands. He should be sued along with the police.

The suit would probably not stick but it would remind him of his insensitivity over $89.

As far as I am concerned the police and the restaurant are also liable for failure to act like human beings. Who would put someone out of a jail in the middle of the night in such a dark place?

What makes this story so maddening and tragic is that this clearly did not have to happen. I mean didn't they notice that she was a daggone HUMAN BEING!!!

And the girl didn't have any mental problems that I heard the family mention. NO Slappz should stop repeating that slander. She was out of it that night for who knows what reason. Someone could have slipped her a mickey while she was in that restaurant.


and the more I think about this case NO Slappz and people like him piss me off, with their lack of humanity and lack of respect for anyone but themselves. Would he be so callous if this was his daughter.

Sorry Field the story initially pissed me off and NO Slappz is making me want to get off my square and forget about the fact that God even loves that heartless harlot.

la coincidental, you wrote:

You really do live in the Land of La.

What's funny and sad is how blacks have destroyed their credibility when it comes to any issue in which blacks and the police are involved.

Al Sharpton has been riding the name he created for himself by LYING to the media for YEARS about Tawana Brawley. Claiming she was RAPED by six white men including a local prosecutor. But Sharpton and his two revolting associates, Vernon Mason and Alton Maddox, refused to let her speak to the police, while they continued to LIE to the media.

Sharpton STILL to this day refuses to admit what we all know.

Meanwhile, if Chandra Levy had been a black Congressional staffer who disappeared, Sharpton would have had a legitimate Tawana to work with. It seems Levy was murdered, but inasmuch as only her skeleton was found, we will never know for sure. Though people searched the area where she was found, they overlooked her body. It took another year till it was discovered accidently by a hiker.

Meanwhile, family and friends of Mitrice did search in the area where here skeleton was found. They too somehow overlooked her body.

Anyway, what happens when black women claim they were attacked by white men? Crystal Mangum said she was raped by the Duke lacrosse team. Four team members were prosecuted by a moronic white DA.

As tests showed, apparently the only people in a four-state area who had NOT had sex with Crystal were the guys on the Duke lacrosse team. Crystal -- another liar.

That's what national media attention gets you.

Unfortunately, when black women disappear, they often turn up dead, killed by boyfriends. A couple of years ago there was a case of a black female college student who was traveling from home back to school after a vacation. School might have been on Long Island. I think she was from the Albany area. She never arrived.

Short story short, her boyfriend killed her.

As you know, when it comes to inter-racial murder, it is rare for a white to kill a black. But rarer still for a white man to kill a black woman.

And though the police are occasionally responsible for using excessive force that leads to the death of a black arrestee, the dead are alway males.

I cannot think of a single case of "police brutality" in which a black woman died.

In any case, when adults are missing and there's no obvious signs of foul play, the burden of searching has fallen on family and friends. It's not a crime to disappear.

Meanwhile, almost every year in NY City, a young white male gets drunk and falls into the East River or the Hudson River and drowns. Occasionally it happens because the guy is alone, in a deserted area and urinating into the water. Because he is drunk he falls in, generally hitting his head on the rocks, drowning and floating away on the tide.

It often takes two months before the bodies are found. But until a body is found -- they seem to float over to Brooklyn -- family and friends slap flyers on lampposts and walk through neighborhoods hoping to find the guy alive and having a beer. The parents are always praying their sons developed a sudden case of amnesia.

Maybe Matrice's family will sue the police department. Then, if the suit proceeds and the facts are revealed, it's likely a jury would have a tough time finding in favor of her family. But it's more likely her family will drop the suit after the lawyers have their pow-wow and they see they've got no case.

Kathy said...

I just listened to one of the tapes where Matrice's mother is on the phone with the police, I couldn't listen to the whole tape, she wants to know if they are going to keep her all night or release her, if they are going to release her, her mother says she will come up and get her, or if they are going to keep her, she'd come up the next day, it is so horrible, I had to stop the tape.

No. Not an analogy. I never edit, so occasionally stuff goes out with the wrong meaning. The two examples were used for contrast.

It appeared Congressman Condit murdered Levy. That's big news.

On the other hand, unnamed white prositutes disappear, sometimes murdered by white johns and no one notices for a long time.

Sometimes a serial killer knocks off several in a row. When it appears that a serial killer is at work, then there is some news coverage -- not much -- but enough to get the word out, and soon enough the killer is caught. Almost always a white guy.

Meanwhile, there's rarely any family or friends looking for these white women.

A few years ago there was a case on Long Island where about 10 white hookers were killed. The killer was caught, a white guy.

Anyway it's obvious Chandra Levy was dead within 12 hours of leaving home. Given the location of Matrice's body, it's likely she was dead before the dawn after her release for the police station.

I blame her family for not helping her get home from the police station.

no_slappz said...

kathy, I listened to the tapes of the calls. First, the beginning and ending of every call was cut out by the person who compiled the Youtube.

Second, based on the audio, her mother was totally phony and clearly hiding something.

It was also clear her mother was familiar with police procedure -- she spoke of arrest, arraignment, release -- like she was a regular at some station house. Her mother also said Mitrice had no idea how to ride a bus. What? Her mother repeatedly claimed Mitrice was in unfamiliar territory, didn't know Malibu.

When asked about Mitrice taking medication, her mother said NO, she was not taking any.

Why was Mitrice in Malibu dining alone in an upscale restaurant?

Below it's stated that after Mitrice was released journals were found suggesting she suffered from a "severe bipolar disorder."

Says who? Not her mother, though in one of her calls her mother said Mitrice was depressed. Not a psychiatrist. Maybe she was in a creative writing class. Or, maybe she was an unmedicated bi-polar nut.

Meanwhile, on one of the audio-tapes a homeowner called the cops to report a black woman sitting on his back steps at 5:30 am. Obviously she's Mitrice. The homeowner called to her and she answered she was just resting.

No request came from Mitrice asking for help. But the homeowner called the cops anyway.

If there's one person whose bad judgment led to Mitrice's death, it's her mother.

L.A. NOW
Southern California -- this just in

Father of missing woman sues L.A. County Sheriff's Department
July 27, 2010

The father of a woman who disappeared last year in Malibu filed a lawsuit Tuesday against the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, alleging negligence while she was in its custody.

Mitrice Richardson was arrested for not being able to pay an $89 dinner bill at Geoffrey’s restaurant in Malibu.

She was released from the Lost Hills/Malibu Sheriff’s station Sept. 17 around 12:30 a.m. without her car, which was impounded, or her purse and cellphone, which were in the car. Aside from a couple of sightings later that morning, she vanished.

Since then, Los Angeles police detectives investigating her disappearance found journals she kept that indicated she was probably suffering from severe bipolar disorder.

The suit filed by Michael Richardson is similar to one filed four weeks ago by Mitrice’s mother, Latice Sutton.

Both suits seek damages and contend that Mitrice exhibited signs of mental instability while in custody -- grabbing the walls of the holding cell, pulling her hair -- but officials did not hold her for a mental health evaluation.

Sutton said when she filed her lawsuit that she had been allowed to watch a sheriff’s department videotape of her daughter that showed her acting strangely in the holding cell.

In his lawsuit, he specifically asks for damages for emotional distress, as well as for loss of earnings and medical expenses.

His lawyer, Benjamin Schonbrun, said..."This lawsuit is about seeking the truth, obtaining information the sheriff has not provided.”

Schonbrun said that would include videotapes, audiotapes, witness statements and internal reports.

no_slappz said...

Notice that in the following article it's stated Mitrice skipped out on a bill for TWO people. Hmmm.

This article was dated July 22, 2010, a point by which Mitrice had become known as a bi-polar babe. Nevertheless, when on the phone to the cops, Mitrice's mother said Mitrice was healthy and had no problems. But now she's depicted as a bi-polar nut caring for her great grandmother. Who leaves a bi-polar nut in charge of an old lady?

The 24-year-old Richardson, a dean’s list graduate of Cal State Fullerton who has been caring for her aging great-grandmother and has bi-polar disorder, was in custody briefly on Sept. 16 for allegedly skipping out on an $89 tab for meals for two people at Geoffrey’s Restaurant in Malibu at 10 p.m.

A resident of South Los Angeles, she was released shortly after midnight the following morning without a phone, money or transportation to her home, where she was living with her great-grandmother.

Her car, which was parked at the restaurant, was impounded the next day, said her mother. Inside the vehicle was her cell phone and purse, she said.

“Mitrice was going through a mental crisis at the time of her arrest,” said Sutton. “I watched the booking video and it’s very clear from her behavior that someone should have known that there was something going on with her. She passed the field sobriety test, but the sheriffs never had an answer for her behavior. She had a severe bipolar episode. Absolutely, they should have referred her to a psychiatric evaluation.”

On July 13, the LA County Board of Supervisors renewed a $10,000 reward for information leading to Richardson’s whereabouts. The city of Malibu has offered a $15,000 reward.

Mitrice’s father, 43-year-old Michael Richardson of Hawthorne, who was not married to Sutton, said he has been in contact with sheriff’s investigators and does not believe his daughter is dead. He blames the young woman’s mother for what happened to his daughter.

He also does not think it is right to sue the county over his daughter’s disappearance.

“There’s some gross negligence on the part of my daughter’s mother,” said Michael Richardson. “This is not publicity or fun, this is my kid. There is some fault on the part of the sheriffs, but her mother could have got her ass up and got her that night. If you start blaming people, then you have to claim some accountability also. This is my damn daughter.”

“I think Mitrice is having a nervous breakdown and someone is capitalizing on it,” Michael Richardson said. “I wouldn’t even say someone is holding her against her will. If someone has her, they may not even be holding her against her will. They could be feeding her drugs to keep her under their control.” He added that Mitrice did not have a history of drug use.

According to his own Web site, Michael Richardson has been repeatedly asked by detectives to provide a DNA sample, but he has refused to do so. “Haven’t we learned anything from Mark Fuhrman,” he wrote, referring to the former LAPD officer in the OJ Simpson murder case accused of tampering with blood evidence.

Sutton does, however, agree in part with Michael Richardson that it is possible Mitrice is being held against her will. She said anyone who knows Mitrice would say that she would not willingly run away from home.

“I don’t have any recent communications with Michael,” Sutton said. “Our interactions are very contentious. I do believe Mitrice had a nervous breakdown.

she was not a "bipolar babe." that's so disgusting. it's a serious mental illness that is often extremely treatment resistant, and those with it don't take the meds or the right dose 90% of the time.

i heard her mother say she was a responsible woman--and there is every evidence of that. no reason for her go immediately revealing her mental health history.

just play out the scenario in your head. if you'd been subject to what she was, even IN your right mind, you'd be wandering around in a fugue state after your release. given that she clearly mentally unstable, how could there possibly have been a good outcome?

did it make ANY sense for them to let her go under those circumstances? ABSOLUTELY NOT.

her mother had no idea she was being released. she would have gotten her if she knew.

she also had no money. ever tried to ride a bus with no money? buses run after midnight in desolate areas? NO.

no_slappz said...

field,

Mitrice's mother is on the audiotape stating Mitrice was not taking any medications. The cop on the phone was asking questions that might -- if answered honestly by the obviously deceptive mother of Mitrice -- have changed the outcome of this tragedy.

Instead making it clear she knew all about police procedure, she should have said Mitrice had mental problems. She's saying it now, when it's too late to help Mitrice, but not too late to collect some money.

When she first called the stationhouse, Mitrice was still in transit. Her mother showed audible signs of relief after hearing her daughter would most likely remain LOCKED UP ALL NIGHT.

What kind of nut is her mother?

Mitrice's father was right. She should have gotten her sorry self over to the police station. But no, from her mother's point of view, a night behind bars for her daughter was okay.

Seems mental illness runs in the family.

Meanwhile, with whom did Mitrice have dinner? No one seems to know.

Geoffrey's Malibu: A Recipe for a Classic Restaurant

Many ingredients combine to create a classic restaurant. First and foremost, it takes a grand beginning. A start that conveys a sense of pedigree and of great things to come.

Geoffrey's Malibu certainly has met that standard. Located on the site of the former Holiday House, a resort/hotel/watering hole to the stars for decades, it was designed by world-famous architect Richard Neutra.

It opened its doors in 1948, and immediately established itself as the ultimate destination, hosting the gods and goddesses of its day, including Frank Sinatra, Shirley MacLaine, and Lana Turner.

Holiday House attracted more than just the crème de la crème of Hollywood, though-it also was the place where a then-unknown senator from Massachusetts by the name of John F. Kennedy began a lengthy affair with Hollywood legend Marilyn Monroe.

Certainly, a classic restaurant had been born.

As one classic died, though, a new one was born. In 1983, Holiday House ended its glorious run when Harvey Baskin, a financier/gourmand/nature lover, purchased it and created what is known today as Geoffrey's Malibu.

Baskin proved to be a genius at cultivating the natural beauty that came to be the calling card at Geoffrey's Malibu.

He redesigned the space so that every seat in the house had a panoramic view of the ocean, one in which there were no boundaries between the restaurant and the splendor in which it was surrounded.

Not surprisingly, when Baskin surrendered ownership of the restaurant, he found the perfect candidate in Jeff Peterson.

Like the gorgeous flora that nestles Geoffrey's Malibu, Peterson grew from within the company to become its owner in 1999. Starting as a busboy 11 years prior, he ascended to the position of General Manager, before ultimately taking the reins of ownership.

Since that time, Peterson has expanded Geoffrey's appeal and participation within the community. Though still a magnet to Hollywood luminaries, it also attracts politicians, ambassadors, world travelers, as well as those who live locally.

Not content with being just a restaurant, though, Peterson has hosted benefits for charitable organizations of all kinds, including the American Heart Association, drawings from which adorn the walls of the bar.

The restaurant's profile within the humanitarian realm also extends to hosting events for inner-city children, as well as granting donations throughout the year.

The biggest ingredient in the recipe for a classic restaurant is time-and Geoffrey's Malibu has not only withstood the test of time, it has passed it with flying colors.

A unique place, rich in its own history, it embodies the natural beauty from which it sprang, while offering an invitation to everyone who cares to celebrate life-what could be more classic?

If you re-read what you wrote, even you might realize her mother is a deceptive moron who was the catalyst for this tragedy.

Yeah, sure, you might keep your daughter's private business private most of the time. But when her private business -- her mental illness -- is THE REASON she's in police custody, you speak up.

Mitrice's mother is an obvious lying nut.

By the way, I've been through the experience of having a missing kid. My son, who was 16 at the time, disappeared one night in Manhattan. Once we knew he was NOT in police custody, we started searching and kept going till we found him.

Had he been picked up by the police, I would have been at the precinct house in minutes. No matter where it was, and no matter what I was told by some cop on desk duty.

As for Mitrice, her mother claimed her purse and cell phone were in her car. If true, why were they in her car rather than in her hands in the restaurant. What woman goes into a restaurant after leaving her purse in her car?

Anyway, no one comes down with a sudden case of bi-polarism. Her swings from mania to depression were known to people in her life, including her lying mother.

Hey bonehead, her car was impounded AFTER she was arrested. AFTER she was taken from the restaurant. According to some reports, her car was impounded the following day.

In other words, she had her car keys with her when she was in the restaurant and was able to give them to the cops, but her purse and phone were sitting in the car while she was inside dining. Or possibly she left the keys in the car with her purse and phone.

Again, what woman does that? Is it humanly possible for a woman to go into an upscale restaurant and never go to the bathroom for a look in the mirror and a quick touch-up? Hair, lip-stick, etc?

u r a disgusting piece of fucking shit no slapz and u have no class, dignity or compassion the fact that ude disparage a dead woman and her family shows that u have no conscience

Mitrice's mother is the culprit. She's a lying nut who was willing to let her daughter spend a night in jail because her bi-polarism kicked in.

Moreover, Mitrice's father agrees.

Did her crazy mother tell the cops Mitrice needed her lithium pills to get herself together? NO. She said Everything's fine and I don't mind a bit if my daughter spends the night in jail.

What kept this crazy woman from going out to help her daughter?

"Mitrice's mother is an obvious lying nut."

Instead of blaming police officers who turned her out into the night without so much as calling her loved ones, you blame the mother. Classy.

It's little wonder no one takes you seriously, Slappy Boy. It's impossible.

Here it goes again...

When will bm learn? Why the heck did Mitrice's FATHER not go and get her?! Is it REALLY necessary to bash bw ALL the time? Even in death folks are quick to treat bw more harshly than they ever would anyone else.

"Mitrice's father was right. She should have gotten her sorry self over to the police station. But no, from her mother's point of view, a night behind bars for her daughter was okay."

slaps while you are quoting Mitrice's God given protector to the detriment of her mother; it should be noted based on your post that Mr. Richardson has suddenly decided suing makes perfect sense.

At the end of the day, the police failed to serve and protect. Isn't that what they are called to do?

RIP Mitrice.

As per usual, it is ALWAYS a good time to bash black women.

Shame on Mitrice's God given protector for blaming the mother. Why did HE not go and get his daughter?!

It should be noted that he now wants to file a lawsuit as well. He probably had spent a whole week with his daughter over her lifetime if you add all the time together. NOW he is greiving and suing. He should fix the ailment that ails quite a few like him---it always someone else's fault. The Wm or the Bw. In this instance the police has clearly FAILED to PROTECT and SERVE, yet he can't resist the urge to bash the mother of his child that he did not respect and honor enough to even marry. (I notice that too needed to be mentioned. Bw would do well to learn that WIVES have babies!)

Slaps, your disrespect of black women is rather sickening. And I will write a post on the next crazed white person and see if you go after their MOTHER as hard as you have with this particular case.

Rest in peace Mitrice. I used to love going to Geoffrey's after a day at the beach. (Sometimes alone Slaps, because I can. I enjoy my company. You asked why she might be alone.) I no longer go there and will NEVER give a single cent to the operation again. I am truly sorry that your life was cut short. I pray you know peace now.

anons, you asked:

Why did Mitrice's father NOT go to the police station and get her home safely?

Because no one called him the night of her arrest.

As Mitrice's mother said, they have a contentious relationship, thus rarely speak. You know, the usual outcome of teenagers having babies.

Why -- in black minds -- is spending a night in jail OKAY?

If we believe Mitrice had never before been arrested and had no criminal record, HOW could, WHY would a mother allow her daughter to remain behind bars?

Maybe there's more to Mitrice's life than we know. Maybe -- I'm certain -- there's a lot more in her mother's life. An arrest record. Conviction perhaps. Something that would give her the knowledge that staying overnight in a Malibu jail is not so bad.

As for her father filing a lawsuit. I know. At first he was speaking honestly as a human. Then he was awoken to the fact that a lawsuit might put a lot of money in his pocket.

I understand his motivation. Lawsuit or not, he's right about Mitrice's mother. She should have gotten her sorry self out to the police station.

When I first read the story of rapper/CEO Birdman purchasing the expensive ride I could only imagine what happens next....

Cause, whether the event is good or bad or ugly, there is always an action towards every action.

Better yet, why even build a car that cost that much money? I heard that Tom Cruise and Simon (American Idol) also own Bugatti's.

slappy boy-

According to your own comment, Mitrice was not going to be released that evening. So there really was no reason to "get up and go get her" that evening right?

The parents may not speak, but clearly, Mitrice knew not to call her father. She probably realized that it wouldn't make a difference. Funny how you are so understanding of the desire to line his pockets when he clearly did not have enough of a relationship with his daughter to be called in an emergency.

It is not a black thing for parents to feel ok with their offspring that is old enough to know better, to sit a night in jail. I personally know non black people that have shared this sentiment with me. Most importantly, her sitting a night in jail SHOULD NOT have resulted in her death.

The speculation about the grieving mother is just more of your sickness on display. Were you rejected by a black woman that looked like her? LOL! You seem personally offended by a total stranger. I know I once rejected a racist white boy like you. He was an outcast even among white folks; so in his racist mental illness he felt entitled to be with a beautiful black woman. (Ever notice that in the racist mind, even a dirty reject/outcast is entitled to the best of other races? What the heck?!) He told me in anger that I was an uppity n-word b-word. Fortunately, this was back in the day when black men behaved more like men; so a few of my black guy fellow students escorted him to the mensroom to handle menfolk business. The future Klansman never addressed me after that day. Fast forward a few years later, while back home for a visit, why did I see the future Klansman all dressed up in his police uniform gun in tow? LOL! There is NO TELLING how many racist sick acts he has executed on black men and women! Wisdom directed me to quietly vacate the premises. I obeyed.

Slappy boy you are an exercise in futility. So immediately I will cease and desist any communication with you. Your issues are your issues.

Side-note: predictably, the howling black men 2.0 are quiet as church mice when the racists on this board go after black women. It should be noted that the black woman protectors of black men are equally as quiet. Your voices are reserved for the protection of the black man. SMH in utter disgust. Quite a few black folks excel in bassackwards thinking and behavior.
