“They punched him, stomped him, kicked him and then they let the dog out of the car,” said Ricardo Garcia. “The dog bit him on his face and around his body. There’s no call for that. Once a man is handcuffed and unconscious, you should have stuck him in the patrol car and take him to the police station. Instead they decided to beat him right here.”
Another eyewitness recalled what he saw,
Agustin Ayala of Ayala Towing said he was driving down Grape Street in his tow truck when he saw two police cars on the street and two officers trying to handcuff a man…The two officers, including a K9 officer, handcuffed the suspect and brought him to the ground, he said. Ayala said he asked the officers to stop because he was concerned for the man’s welfare.
Police have provided no real explanation for how something so awful happened to an unarmed man in their custody. The police chief, Timothy Codispoti, released a statement calling it a “tragedy.” He went on to say, “I ask that everyone allow time for our justice system to now investigate this matter to its truthful conclusion.”
The fifth season of Love & Hip Hop New York wrapped up last night (Mar. 30), but it also marked the last time you’ll see Erica Mena on the show. And to commemorate her departure, the future Mrs. Shad Moss took to Instagram to write a goodbye letter to her dear fans.
The letter was penned below a picture of Mena wearing her wedding gown (pictured above). She went on to thank all of her fans for their unconditional support, and apologized for some of her mishaps on the show.
“Four years ago became #MenaMonday I let the world in and it’s been a crazy ride since. I’ve always been open about who I am & my relationships just because I know my story was meant to be told. I’ve made many mistakes and I get judge harshly. Thank God I’m as tough and bold as I am because the truth is many are like me,” she wrote.
“I have fan base that now has become my family! I can’t thank you all enough for following & riding this ride. You are all appreciated. Learning from my mistakes and loving me no matter what rumors are made up,” she continued.
Mena then went to allude that no matter what she will always keep it real and genuine with her fans. But reassured she will not be making the same mistakes again.
“Oh and YES I’m Sorry I know I’ve forced you all to like certain people just because I decided to date them I know it won’t be the same after tonight’s show but I do know that no matter what I’m always going to be Open and Real with you all.”
“This chapter has ended but the real deal is the journey has just begun. Tonight is indeed my last show. Good luck to everyone. Wish you all the best. Always #MenaMondays AKA The Only Reason You All Watch #LHHNY #BreadWinner.”

Specifically, the vehicle was inspired by the film And the World Stood Still, a dramatic short film created to coincide with the launch of the original model. The film was recently accepted into the British Film Institute National Archives and to celebrate, the English car manufacturer created a slightly film noir version of their most powerful vehicle to date. References to the genre are seen through a unique two-tone Silver and Jubilee Silver paint scheme, while a solid-silver hand-cast Spirit of Ecstasy acts as the femme fatale to the leading man. Opening the doors, the interior is more colorful than the exterior suggests.
Performance aspects include a shorter wheelbase, wider rear track and 624 bhp/465 kW derived from the twin turbo V12. Drivers will be going from 0 to 60 in 4.4 seconds.
West has moved on to another venture that, while less fashion orientated, is still every bit influenced by his creative spirit and desire to be a high flying business exec. European airline easyJet has announced Kanye West will come on board in a yet-to-be-determined position. While easyJet has operated solely on European soil (or air!) to this point, the newly-named “yeezyJet” partnership will see the airline enter the United States marketplace for the first time.
“The notion of ‘getting fly’ is something I stayed awake at night thinking about,” West said in the official press release. “With DONDA, it happened on a more metaphysical, psychological level. With yeezyJet, I’ve manifested myself. I’m taking people places they’ve never been before. There are 300 million people within a one-hour drive of an yeezyJet airport. I sell out one concert, that’s only 100,000 people. I want to reach the most people possible. I want to literally show them the way.”
As to what to expect from the maiden voyage, which will depart from a yet-to-be-determined American hub on April 22, details include premium, hand-woven Italian textile-clad seats, Krug Clos d’Ambonnay 1998 artisanal beverage service, and an exclusive viewing of in- flight media experience ‘Getting Out Our Dreams’ – a never-before-seen chronicle of West’s favorite songs, movies, artists and TV shows.
Additionally, those lucky enough to book a reservation on the inaugural flight will be treated to a concert on the tarmac by the likes of Pusha T, Common, John Legend, and newly-signed G.O.O.D. music artist, Holt. Kanye West said, “This is Willy Wonka, except I’m giving out gold chains instead of golden tickets.”
