Timmonsville NAACP President the Rev. Jerrod Moultrie posted on Facebook on April 13 that he was racially profiled when a Timmonsville police officer pulled him over for a traffic violation near his home on Harkless Court in Timmonsville.
Moultrie was stopped for failing to use a turn signal and a problem with his license plate, according to police.
Moultrie's post said, "Tonight, I was racially profiled by Timmonsville Officer CAUSE I WAS DRIVING A MERCEDES BENZ AND GOING HOME IN A NICE NEIGHBORHOOD."
Moultrie recounted his conversation with the officer in the post.
He said the officer asked him if there were any drugs inside his car.
Moultrie said in that post the officer told him, "I am doing you a favor tonight not taking you to jail or writing you a ticket."
Florence community activist Timothy Waters said when he saw Moultrie's Facebook post, it made him very upset that a black person could be racially profiled for driving a nice car in a nice neighborhood.
Waters said he went to the Timmonsville Police Department to take a look at a copy of the officer's dash and body cam video.
He added when he saw the video, he became even more upset, but not at the officer, rather at Moultrie.
Waters said the body cam video totally contradicts what Moultrie posted on Facebook.
He said the officer was very pleasant and kind to Moultrie during the entire four-minute traffic stop.
"Once I got a copy of that body cam, it's as if he made the whole story up. And I felt like he set us back 100 years, because think about all of the racial profiling cases (that) are true," said Waters.
A judge has ruled that Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes violated state and federal laws by destroying ballots from a 2016 congressional race while they were the subject of a lawsuit against her office.
The SunSentinel reported that Florida's Department of State said it will send election experts to the Broward County elections office in upcoming elections to "ensure that all laws are followed."
The decision involved Tim Canova's bid to unseat U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., in the 2016 Democratic primary. Canova lost, 57 percent to 43 percent.
Canova wanted to look for voting irregularities and sought to see the ballots in 2017. He sued Snipes when the ballots weren't produced. However, Snipes had approved destruction of the ballots.
Seattle city council member and avowed socialist Kshama Sawant is interviewed by a local news station where she attacks voters who showed up to protest the city's tax on employees for homeless housing as "right-wing NIMBYists."

A Belgian man and his son were brutally beaten by several men on Saturday afternoon in Antwerp after they sat down on the terrace of a halal restaurant while drinking alcohol.
The two men, who were described as being under the influence of alcohol, are said to have brought alcoholic beverages with them to the Express pita restaurant at Rooseveltplaats in Antwerp which is located in close proximity to the shisha cafe Fayrouz and a Persian restaurant.
The 22-year-old Trump supporter who was verbally attacked by the staff at a Miami Cheesecake Factory restaurant over his “Make America Great Again” hat described the moment as “just really wrong” in an interview on Wednesday's edition of “Fox and Friends.”
“They all started getting behind us, and one of the [workers] was saying, ‘I’ll knock the hat off his head, I’ll hit him so hard that I’ll knock his hat off,’" recalled Eugenior Joseph of Sunday’s incident.
“They were clenching their fists and standing behind me, trying to scare us and stuff ‘I wasn’t really intimidated by anything, but … it was just sad,” he said.
Joseph and his girlfriend’s family had been seated at a Miami location of the Cheesecake Factory on Mother’s Day when he said his girlfriend’s aunt first noticed some of the employees “making gestures” at him from over in a corner.

Philadelphia school's signs that take aim at the GOP and NRA are sparking outrage. Outraged parent says the kids are being used as pawns.
In a video posted on Facebook and YouTube, Charity Croft addresses both the male privilege and heterosexual privilege of straight black men ⏤ with a focus on how it impacts black women and queer black men, among others.
Croft asks and answers the question: Are straight black men the white people of black people? In other words, among black people, do they enjoy greater privilege than those who aren’t straight and male?
There’s a lot to unpack here, but Croft starts out by drawing a parallel between white privilege and male privilege, before delving into how black men enjoy the latter among other black people, even as they encounter the former in the larger world.
Both Croft and Young point out that while it might seem counterintuitive to consider that black men possess any privilege at all, it’s essential to not just their relationship to whiteness in America, but their relationship to gender and sexuality both in America at large and in black communities.
“We black men are not nervous walking past a group of black women, while on the other hand, they are petrified walking past a group of us, because 1 in 5 black women will be brutally raped at some point in their lives.”
Croft goes on to draw connections between sexism or misogyny and homophobia or heterosexism.
“And then gay black men, they are ridiculed on a daily basis by straight black men. And, ironically, it’s not even because of the fact that they like to have sex with men,” Croft says.
“We as a society don’t tend to hate gay men because they are gay,” Croft continues. Society hates gay men because they, “act like women,” or often assume roles and positions traditionally seen as female.
The closer you are to the female end of the spectrum in identity, the more hatred you become the target of, both in the larger world and in your identity-based communities.
If we don’t acknowledge our positions of privilege in our identity communities, Croft points out; we become no different than, say, white people who refuse to recognize their privilege in relation to us.
Road Rage Girl Blocked From Getting In The Next Lane Gets Out Cursing And Ends With A Twerk!
Anger in Canada continues to build concerning the government's lack of action over a self-confessed Islamic State executioner - after he lied to immigration services to get back into the country. He revealed it openly on a New York Times podcast show called 'Caliphate'.
A Pennsylvania teacher suspended after she was found in a car with an underaged student was fatally shot outside her mother's home Sunday, authorities said.
Rachael DelTondo, 32, was shot multiple times in her upper body on her mother's driveway in Beaver County, authorities said.
She died at the scene. A neighbor told KDKA-TV he heard about six gunshots and the Beaver County coroner's office ruled her death a homicide. A motive for the slaying is unknown as police continue its search for a suspect.
In November, DelTondo was suspended from Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School after it was revealed in a 2016 police report that she was found in a car with a 17-year-old male student who attended a different school.
The teen's mother told WPXI-TV that there were rumors swirling between the teacher and her son.
DelTondo was engaged at the time and no charges were filed. The wedding was later called off.
The school released a statement saying it was saddened by DelTondo's tragic death.
Spike Lee is well known for his blatant racism against white people, Latinos, and even Black people whom outsell him such as Tyler Perry, who he once labeled a "coon" for releasing funny movies that don't focus on race relations. Now he's releasing a new movie and trying the same old line, America is racist, and so is the President... The Problem is, his claim is a flat out lie as you can see in the video.
The sad reality is that in the movie, Spike Lee apparently uses the claim that Pres. Trump NEVER Denounced the Klan, the problem is, he did. More racist propaganda from failed movie directors trying to stir more racism in America.
Irate lady takes a shit in Tim Horton's (Langley, BC) and flings it at staff.....but at least she wiped her ass.
What should have been one of the happiest days of a love-struck man's life turned to tragedy when his father and brothers gouged his eyes out for wanting to marry a woman of his choice.
Abdul Baqi, from Nasirabad village in Pakistan's Balochistan province, on Saturday expressed his desire to his family that he wants to marry a girl he was in relationship with.
The 22-year-old asked the family to take an engagement proposal to the girl's house.
But the news did not go down well with his father and brothers.
His 70-year-old father Dost Muhammmad and four brothers - Abdul Ghani, Abdul Sattar, Abdul Rehman and Abdul Karim - held him in a room and gouged out his eyes of their sockets.
Giant hailstones, with a maximum diameter of 4 cm, wreaked havoc in NW China for over 20 minutes in Shangnan County, northwest China's Shaanxi Province on Tuesday.
Video has emerged showing a man being beaten and robbed in the Bronx, while a handful of people walked by and refused to step in.
The asault happened just before 8am last Thursday, outside a convenience store on the 1200 block of Wheeler Avenue in Soundview.
The video shows a man pushing the victim, 49, out of a store and onto the ground where he proceeds to hit and kick him until he eventually steals his wallet with a credit card inside and takes off.
FBI agents knocked on Oleg Deripaska’s door just weeks before the 2016 election to pitch the ‘Trump-Russia collusion’ narrative to him and he wasn’t buying it!
“Two months before the election he’s [Deripaska] asleep in his apartment in New York and he gets a knock on the door by some of the same FBI agents who worked with him on the earlier operation and they said, ‘we think Trump’s campaign and Russia are colluding on the election’ and he let out a big laugh,” John Solomon said to Laura Ingraham.
That’s right–the same FBI agents who brought Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska to the US pitched him on the idea that Trump colluded with the Russians.
Special counsel Robert Mueller has withstood relentless political attacks, many distorting his record of distinguished government service.
But there’s one episode even Mueller’s former law enforcement comrades — and independent ethicists — acknowledge raises legitimate legal issues and a possible conflict of interest in his overseeing the Russia election probe.
In 2009, when Mueller ran the FBI, the bureau asked Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska to spend millions of his own dollars funding an FBI-supervised operation to rescue a retired FBI agent, Robert Levinson, captured in Iran while working for the CIA in 2007.
Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis of Florida thinks he may know who was spying on President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, but said further investigation is needed to get to the truth.
DeSantis, a Florida gubernatorial candidate, believes the rumors of an FBI mole planted within the campaign.
“I know that we’re actively trying to get the underlying documents that would tell us — did they spy on the Trump campaign or not?” DeSantis said on “Fox & Friends” Monday. “The reason why a lot of us were suspicious was because Glenn Simpson at one point, the head of Fusion GPS, testified that there was a human source inside the Trump campaign, based on his conversations with Christopher Steele. So it suggests that Steele as a British agent, may have been working with somebody who the FBI was also working with.”
DeSantis said he may know the identity of the mole but believes it’s more important for Congress to confirm that the federal government was spying on the Trump campaign.
“I think I may know the person just based on what I’ve learned, not even classified. But we don’t even need to know the name. We just need to know did they, in fact, target Trump’s campaign? Yes or no,” he said. “It’s a very crucial fact to know, to see how all this thing started.”
“I think there needs to be follow up,” DeSantis concluded. “That’s why we’ve been going back and forth on this stuff for months and different varieties. [The Department of Justice] need[s] to produce the information, otherwise, there needs to be some type of sanction, whether that’s contempt of Congress or something else.”
The liberal media in America was showing a handicapped man "protesting" against Israel almost all day yesterday. But this is what happened when the Western media's cameras stopped rolling and the man thought he was no longer being filmed but still wanted to protest.
Watch as Palestinian attackers attempt to destroy and breach the Gaza-Israel border fence, using the Hamas-led violent riots as cover.
The United States officially moved its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on Monday. The move comes after President Donald Trump took historic action and bucked decades of foreign policy tradition to announce the U.S. would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Reporters and cable news hosts noted the historic move by Trump but were quick to pivot to the controversy surrounding the decision. A look back at when former President Barack Obama announced the U.S. would normalize relations with the communist country of Cuba shows those in the media reported the historic action with smiles on their faces and with little to no mention of the controversy surrounding the decision.
A New Jersey high school is trying out a new cheerleading policy that is already stirring up a real hornet’s nest after a mother complained when her daughter didn’t make the cut.
The school decided the squads need to be more inclusive, CBS2’s Lisa Rozner reported Tuesday.
Sophomore Stephanie Krueger said she’s been practicing four days a week for the last decade, dreaming of making it to Hanover Park High School’s top tier cheering team, known as the “Black Squad.”
Last month, the school was using a scoring system that featured coaches judging on things like jumps and choreography. Krueger and a number of girls made the team, but students said the parent of a classmate who placed on a lower-level cheer squad complained to the school.
In a letter to students and parents, the superintendent wrote the “process was invalid,” and that the historically elite team would be made up of every cheerleader in the 11th and 12th grades, instead of by skill level.
“All the time I’ve spent in my cheer gym practicing, constantly flipping, practicing my jumps, all was just like gone,” Krueger said. “I can’t believe, like, my hard work just dropped. It’s like telling a football player — your star varsity football player — they can’t play anymore because we want to make it all inclusive.”
“My biggest gripe is if you want to make a change, do it for next season. But don’t do it for this season. You already had the tryout,” parent Lisa Krueger added.
Wild Dogs Disturb a Warthog's Bath
We did this yesterday for almost 45 minutes. The average pour was anywhere from 10 to 60. They wouldn’t tell me when they were going to put the towel on they would just smash it on my face and start pouring. You can’t hold your breath while they do it because the water runs down your sinuses. The water run hrough your eyes, down your nose, and pools at the back of your throat. It was a baptism in freedom. It’s not torture!!!! Hell we had elk tacos and wine afterwards. Wake up people. #waterboarding

A brawl that broke out at a Wisconsin Dells area water park on Mother's Day with people throwing chairs, garbage cans and food started when someone took a chair from another group's table.
The melee at Mount Olympus Water and Theme Park was captured on cellphones and video of the mayhem over something so minor was posted on social media.
Lake Delton police anticipate filing charges.
Authorities were sent to Mount Olympus at 4:15 p.m. Sunday. The large water park features both indoor and outdoor pools, roller coasters, go-karts and other amusements. Its faux Roman Colosseum and huge Trojan horse are a fixture on the main drag through the popular tourist destination.
A woman who answered the phone at the Lake Delton Police Department on Monday afternoon said Chief Daniel Hardman was not available to answer questions and directed media to a news release on the department's website.
"Police learned that the fight started over something as ridiculous as a person taking a chair from a different group's table within the water park," according to the release.
By the time police arrived, the fight was over. Officers talked to witnesses and looked at video shot by bystanders. It's unclear if there were injuries.
Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King Jr., attacked Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters’ narrative on America’s racial divide Monday on Fox Business.
Waters got into a heated debate last week with Republican Pennsylvania Rep. Mike Kelly on the House floor, during which Waters brought up her racial background.
“Congressman Waters is on the wrong frequency,” King said about the heated debate between Kelly and Waters. “The skin color thing, trying to equate a person’s skin color to their race,” Alveda said, adding that Rep. Kelly is actually “right when he’s saying the nation needs help, the nation is in trouble.”
King said Waters was “playing the race card again,” and that the only way Americans can “learn to live together as brothers, and I’ll add as sisters” is to “get past that skin color argument.”
“Our blood is red,” King said, “of one blood God made all people to live together on the face of the Earth.”
King continued, saying that Waters knows “we are all one race,” but continues “to play the race card again.” The niece of MLK also noted that “the job market is up, unemployment is down” and “Americans are getting opportunities to go back to work.”
A group of explorers discovered a creepy, secret room filled with disturbing items in a remote, abandoned campsite.
Footage of their bizarre find was posted to YouTube channel Explore With Us, and initially showed them walking around the rural camp.
The derelict site in an unknown location shows vehicles left to rot and buildings crumbling to the ground.
As the explorers continue their walk through the eerie site, they enter a tiny one-room building, before making their disturbing discovery.
A metal shelving unit covering the back wall is pulled away, revealing a huge hole ripped in the wall behind - leading to the hidden room.
The man filming the bizarre scene instructs another member of the team to investigate the contents of two tubs placed on shelving inside the room.
They then discover the tubs are filled with bullets before going on to film images of 'weird' cartoons and hardcore pornography stuck to the walls.
The team then find ropes and bottles of alcohol littering the floor.
While it's not known where the site is located, many viewers online said it seemed a great distance from any other signs of civilisation.
Lance Shank said: "That place is crazy. Whoever lived out there must've been one hell of a person and probably not very welcoming to live out there with a watch out tower and surveillance cameras."
A schoolgirl ninja showed incredible strength by destroying her adult coach in a warrior-style race in stunning video that has been viewed more than 48 million times.
Taylor Jo Greene, 10, took up the sport less than 18 months ago but swings from bars, pulls herself up ropes and balances on huge rubber balls like a pro.
The youngster quickly mastered obstacles like the menacing warped wall - a vertical 14ft ramp - thanks to weekly training sessions with parkour coach Austin Gray.
Talented Taylor Jo, from Colorado, USA, even showed up another instructor at her local ninja gym when he challenged her to a race and she won.
Jaw-dropping footage of the feat, filmed in November, has been watched by more than 48 million people online, earning her praise from masters of the sport.
