Current Events: Victoria Secret: Hit the Runway Swiftly! Black Friday takes a Plunge: Misfit Wearable gets $40 Million investment to expand in Asia!
Tree Lighting Ceremony Fiuasco:
All Lives Matter! rings in the city streets of NYC this 12/3/2014 day! From Marian Carey refusing to sing, to thousands protesting in the NYC Rockefeller station in the street!?
9:00 PM NYC Time
Later Marian Carey did decide to sing in the cold NYC air.
Yes! More protests about another police brutality case have surfaced! Imagine (Image) being held in a chock hold until you died after telling a police officer to let you go! That’s exactly what happened to Eric Gardener! He asked to be released of the officers hold more then seventeen times, until his life slipped away. Even more shocking is the NYC jury refuse to indict the office and hold him accountable for his savage act.
Details as to what he was being arrested for are yet to be discussed, but regardless its not justifiable, its murder! A police officers duty is to protect and serve! Its your job!!!
If an officer does’t like or take pride in that job they shouldn’t have it! Officers are not above the law and should be sued royally by the family members of an innocent victim, he may have been guilty of something that hasn’t been released. It’s a shame that what supposed to be considered a respectable American hero, is being deteriorated by clowns imposing as such.
This is not a flection of all police officers, because some actually their job.
Victoria Secret Fashion Show:

Black Friday 2014:
This year Black Friday was on a slippery slope, with awful sales results most didn’t meet the quota! Recently in the media reports on teenager Mike Brown and officer Darren Wilson’s verdict created an epidemic of protests, taking place all over the United States! New York Times Square,
Missouri, and even the bay area shut down their Bart station while standing together in unity, with the message written on their outfits as to why they where protesting.
Since most of the media was directed towards this issue, advertising for black Friday plummeted, along with the sales, dropping over 17% since last year so far, but as numbers and stats still surface to the public that figure may change.
