Man arrested for breaking in own home?



In Boston, a woman saw a man attempting to break in a front door and called the police. The Cambridge police department arrived to question him (he was in his home)and he explained he had trouble unlocking the door because it was jammed. He was booked for disorderly conduct after “exhibiting loud and tumultuous behavior,” according to a police report. Gates accused the investigating officer of being a racist and told him he had "no idea who he was messing with,'' the report said.

Friends of Gates said he was already in his home when police arrived. He showed his driver's license and Harvard identification card, but was handcuffed and taken into police custody for several hours last Thursday, they said

The incident raised concerns among some Harvard faculty that Gates was a victim of racial profiling. (I agree)

Henry Louis Gates Jr.(58) is the W.E.B. Du Bois Professor of the Humanities, the chair of Afro-American Studies and the director of the W.E.B. Du Bois Institute for Afro-American Research at Harvard University.


The professor was charged with disorderly conduct and released for a $40 fee. Gates is scheduled to be arraigned on a single charge of disorderly conduct Aug. 26 at Cambridge District Court in Medford. The maximum penalty Gates faces if convicted is a $150 fine.

John Seale from Texas had a balance of $23,148,855,308,184,500.00 on his credit card statement. (I had to really concentrate to say that #, u?) Which is more than 2,000x the national debt. The amount was supposedly charged at Wolfgang Puck Restaurant were he had dinner.

Another guy in New Hampshire found a $23 quadrillion charge also after buying a pack of cigarettes from a gas station.

Visa said the technical glitch that resulted in the giant charge only affected some customers with prepaid Visa cards. All fees (including overdrafts) will be removed.

Starting out

This actually suppose to be about how I hate (kinda) my job. But I will save that for another day. I read several blogs, several times a day. So I decided to give this a shot. I read several books a month. Therefore I'm working on that too. ;)

A little bit about me. My name is Brandi, I currently reside in Ga. I'm an easy going person, who is trying to build up my resume, which is why I moved to Georgia in the 1st place. I manage a store that I relocated to for my job. I have a Bachelors degree in Management from a HBCU. I'm 25 years fabulous, have a boyfriend of nearly 3 years now, no kids, a younger brother and both my parents have been on drugs for 17 years.

Also, feel free to communicate whatev with me. I'm no counselor, but I've been through so much, that I could help out.

Jumping to next subject. I'm not sure what I will blog about. But it will definitely be a mix for u, let's see: my life, headlines, some celebs, facts I feel you should know, and any (maybe all) suggestions you may have. Let's do this.
