THIS SONG IS NOT ALLOWED TO BE PRETTY NO
Okay srsly, WHAT SONG IS THAT
are you fucking kidding me
An advocacy group has released images which claim to show an NYPD officer putting a seven-months pregnant woman into a chokehold for illegally grilling on the sidewalk in front of her apartment.
NYPD officers have been banned from using the chokehold since 1993, but an officer can be seen in the pictures wrapping his arm around 27-year-old Rosan Miller’s neck in the Saturday incident.
Her young daughter is also in the pictures, watching the arrest unfold.
Illegally grilling on the sidewalk! What a hardened, dangerous criminal! And I bet that little girl now has a very solid grasp on who she can trust and what’s ok to do to women and/or people who are physically weaker than you!
For fucking GRILLING outside, a fucking AMERICAN tradition, and we get this?
Reporter: What made you lose 37 pounds?
Raven Symone: The pressure of society.
FINALLY A CELEBRITY WHO SAYS THE REAL REASON.
In an interview where someone told her that she looked beautiful she said: “I was always beautiful, now I’m just thin.”
She is actually Jesus reincarnated.
why I LOVE her
I’ve just seen this on facebook and i’m so disgusted, please signal boost this. The scum that did this need to be found."Didn’t want to post this, but I’m really beginning to think that the boys who tried to kill my son are going to get away with it.
I can’t help but feel that if I’d illegally parked I’d soon be found.
They did far more than stab him, they’ve also taken away the only bit of independence he had, which took us almost two years to prepare him for. I’m now too frightened to let him back out, and I…'m getting the fallout from that too.
The media are totally uninterested in the attempted murder of an Autistic boy, not so much as a reply to my emails to help catch these “people”. Please share, to show my amazing son that what I’ve always taught him is true, that there are consequences to actions, and that these “people” will face those consequences, and that there are still good people out there. Tweet it, share it, take a sec to show him he matters. One parent to another, please, I cannot have them get away with this, I just can’t, because their next victim may not survive.
The attackers are described as three black males, two are possibly Hispanic, aged up to 22. One had curly wet-look type hair, he was wearing a grey jumper, this is the one who actually stabbed Eamonn, The other two had very close shaved haircuts and darker clothing.
It was totally unprovoked and my son was so frightened of them that he ran away after they verbally abused him, but was chased and when he ran out of breath and had to stop, one of them stabbed him mm’s from his jugular artery, and walked off.
The attack occurred on June 4th around 7;30pm in Pimlico, which to jog your memory, was the day of the state opening of parliament.

I want to consider LoK’s ratings for a second, because I think there are some interesting trends to note.
First, Book 1 had a steady schedule, and the ratings reacted accordingly… except for a single hiccup with When Extremes Meet. Interestingly enough, the adult group reacted more negatively than the kid/teenager group did, in stark contrast with the Book 2 trends.
My guess is, the majority of Book 1’s viewer base came from kids looking for something to watch on Saturday mornings. The show got awesome ratings because it was high quality enough to draw a good chunk of those kids, but the kids weren’t deciding when to watch tv based on when the show aired — they were already there to be mined.
In contrast, the adults tuned out when they thought the show had gone on hiatus. That suggests they were scheduling time around the show, but didn’t have the information about its airing. The 600k that caught the show are probably our internet-connected crowd.
For Book 2, the entire non-internet connected adult crowd disappeared. I doubt this was a quality issue; it’s more likely that they didn’t know the show was on. And, for the ones who did know it was on, they were given a very easy way to avoid the lousy air time when Nick put the episodes up at midnight. I bet that influenced the premiere -> third episode drop off — outside of super fans, adults are probably inclined to do stuff on Friday nights.
The kid demo, of course, was all over the place. Kids can’t schedule around shows and don’t have the information to do so, even if they watch the network enough to know the show’s airing again. I’d suggest that the ratings for Peacekeepers suggests a group of around 700k who are connected enough to keep up with the show (which is, not coincidentally, only a bit lower than the general Book 3 kid ratings).
By Book 3, the adult demo stabilized almost entirely. That 400k that the show scored week after week is probably our fanbase and its periphery.
The kids were less stable, but not nearly as volatile as in Book 2. Very few people who weren’t connected even knew about the show.
It’s relevant to point out here that the “kids” group includes 12-17 year olds who Nick probably doesn’t see as their network audience… and given the connectivity issue, I bet they’re a significant chunk of the remainder nowadays. It’s entirely possible that the only actual children who watched Book 3 were relatives and friends of fans.
This is not the portrait of a show in legitimate decline due to audience alienation. This is the portrait of a show that’s been robbed of its greatest source of viewers by the network and rendered impossible to follow by anyone who hasn’t chosen to seek out out.
Can i just say this is exactly what happened? Like to the T. I’m 15 and watched season 1 religiously. But when season 2 came out i saw a couple of episodes and then I stopped. It wasn’t recording on my DVR and i had no idea what was happening. I had no idea what time it was coming on. Honestly, I didn’t even know the 3rd season came out until like 3 weeks after.
I love this show but I’m lazy. If the show won’t tell me when it’s airing, i don’t plan on going to the ends of the earth trying to watch. It’s almost as if they didn’t want people to watch the show
