                      by Eric Lendrum  A public school district in New York state is facing criticism after it promoted a children’s book that falsely claims that police target black people instead of White people, and that black people are more likely to be shot, as reported by Fox News. In the city of Binghamton, the Police Benevolent Association (PBA) denounced the city’s school district for their promotion of the book “Something Happened In Our Town.” The book, which was selected by the school as the “Book of the Month” for April for MacArthur Elementary School, was read aloud to students. In the book, several characters react to a recent police shooting, with one black boy saying that the police officer responsible for the shooting won’t face any charges because “cops stick up for each other,” while also falsely claiming that police “don’t like black men.” The black boy’s father adds that “we can’t always count on [police] to do what’s right.” Another black character, named Malcolm, falsely claims that police could pull...
    By Lynn Elber | Associated Press LOS ANGELES — Prominent film and TV creator Joss Whedon, who faced a claim of abusive behavior on the set of “Justice League,” drew criticism Wednesday from actors who worked with him on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” The first and most direct allegations came from Charisma Carpenter, who said in a social media post that Whedon has a “history of creating toxic and hostile work environments,” including the one she experienced on “Buffy” and while she was pregnant. Sarah Michelle Gellar, who starred as the title character on the 1997 to 2003 series, responded to Carpenter’s post with a supportive if opaque online message of her own. “While I am proud to have my name associated with Buffy Summers, I don’t want to be forever associated with the name Joss Whedon,” Gellar wrote. She is focused on her family and the pandemic and planned no further statements at this time, she said, adding, “I stand with all survivors of abuse and am proud of them for speaking out.” Representatives for Whedon didn’t immediately respond...

    Dennis Harvey, a self-described 60-year-old gay man who’s reviewed movies at the far-left Variety for 30 years, is now worried about losing his job for criticizing the latest woke sensation, a movie called Promising Young Woman. Some background… Promising Young Woman (which I’ve not seen) is about a young woman named Cassie (Carey Mulligan), who sets out to avenge a friend’s rape and murder by hanging out in bars, pretending to be wasted, and exacting revenge on men who try to take advantage of her intoxicated state. Sounds like Death Wish for Social Justice Warriors… Anyway, almost exactly a year ago, after it premiered at Sundance in January 2020, Harvey reviewed the movie for Variety.  His write-up was mostly positive, but Harvey closed with this: Mulligan, a fine actress, seems a bit of an odd choice as this admittedly many-layered apparent femme fatale — Margot Robbie is a producer here, and one can (perhaps too easily) imagine the role might once have been intended for her. Whereas with this star, Cassie wears her pickup-bait gear like bad drag; even her...
    People are calling on Marvel comics to consider retiring The Punisher character in light of his symbol being seen on rioters at the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6. The character’s symbol has been a topic of debate for years after it was adopted as a symbol of pride among some in the U.S. military and law enforcement, as well as some far-right activists. Many have found it alarming that police, as well as potentially violent right-leaning groups, find kinship with Marvel’s most violent and murderous anti-hero. For those unfamiliar, The Punisher, first introduced by Marvel Comics 1974, is the alter ego of Frank Castle. After witnessing the murder of his family, Castle uses his skills as a military veteran in a one-man war against crime. However, unlike other Marvel heroes like Spider-Man or Captain America, Castle isn’t shy about employing torture, violence and even outright murder as a means to his end.  Some people at the Capitol riots, including the person who was photographed carrying zip ties, were sporting The Punisher’s infamous skull with long teeth symbol. As a...
    Three of the faces of the Hong Kong pro-democracy protests have been detained and are awaiting their sentences after pleading guilty to unauthorized assembly charges over a 2019 protest. Joshua Wong, Agnes Chow, and Ivan Lam made their plea on Monday. All three were members of the since-disbanded student activism group Demosisto. They were immediately jailed and will receive their sentences next week. The protest took place in June 2019, with thousands surrounding police headquarters calling for an investigation into police brutality. Later that day, some demonstrators threw eggs at the headquarters and marked the walls with graffiti. Scores of Hongkongers took to the streets that year to protest the introduction of a bill that would have allowed residents of the city to be extradited to mainland China. Wong plead guilty to two charges of inciting and organizing an unauthorized assembly. According to the New York Times, he faces a sentence of up to three years in prison for the charges. However, he has maintained his innocence in a separate charge related to participating in an unauthorized assembly....
    Actor Patrick Dempsey joined back the hit medical drama Greys Anatomy for a cameo. He says it was special and enjoyable. Dempsey’s popular character Derek Shepherd, who died in an April 2015 episode, made a return in Season 17 of the show. He appeared in a dream sequence, joining actress Ellen Pompeo’s Meredith Grey on a beach seconds after Meredith collapsed in the parking lot of Grey Sloan Memorial. Sandra Oh Rules Out Return to Grey’s Anatomy, Says ‘There Are So Many New Projects and I’d Have to Say No’ “It was really enjoyable. It was really exciting, and fun, and it was great to see everybody. Kevin (McKidd, who directs Episode 3) was there as well, so there was a lot of familiar faces, a lot of new faces. The dynamic behind the camera had changed. There’s much more diversity within the crew. There was a nice balance, too, of equality that I was seeing. So, culturally, there was a lot of things that were different, that I thought were very positive and very inspiring, actually,” Dempsey told deadline.com. Grey’s...

The 2019 film “Blackbird” follows the story of Lily (Susan Sarandon), who is terminally ill with ALS. She, with the support of her husband Paul (Sam Neill), decides to end her life on her own terms. The film, directed by Roger Michell (“My Cousin Rachel,” “Notting Hill”), is a remake of the 2014 Danish film “Silent Heart,” which first premiered at San Sebastián International Film Festival that year and was nominated for 2015 Nordic Council Film Prize. The decision for Lily to end her life is made before the film opens. She and her husband decide to bring their loved ones out to their country home for one final weekend gathering, but the family’s response to Lily’s decision doesn’t particularly fall in line with Lily’s choice to end her life. Her daughters Jennifer (Kate...
    A Toronto police officer received public backlash Tuesday after he was spotted wearing a “Punisher” patch on his uniform during a press conference. A Toronto Star reporter who was at the press conference was the first to tweet an image of the officer wearing the patch. “Spotted this patch on one of the officers at this morning’s presser. Google tells me this is a motto popular among police, a fuller version of which is “I may walk among the sheep, but make no mistake, I am the sheepdog.” The sheep being civilians, presumably,” reporter Ben Spurr wrote. “Has a different ring to it than “To Serve and Protect,” he added. Connie Osbourne, a spokesperson for the Toronto police, told the Fox News the “officer wearing the patch has been identified and he has been directed to remove it immediately.” “It is not approved, nor appropriate, for him to be wearing it on his uniform. This is now a matter of internal discipline,” Osbourne said. The patch features a black skull centered around the message: “Make no mistake, I am the...
    (CNN)Maybe the biggest surprise about allegations President Donald Trump uttered rude dismissals of American war dead was how unsurprising it really was.The remarks, reported first in The Atlantic magazine and corroborated by several outlets, including CNN, seemed so in character with Trump's public persona that even an onslaught of denials from current and former officials did little to negate the impression that Trump is a man who sometimes says terrible things.When excerpts soon followed of his former attorney and fixer Michael Cohen's book portraying Trump as a cheat, liar, fraud, bully, racist, predator and con man, the surprise again failed to materialize -- even though Cohen had worked intimately with Trump for years. Trump has repeatedly questioned why Americans who served in Vietnam went to warNow, as the presidential campaign begins its post-Labor Day finale, the question has become less about what Americans know of Trump's character but whether they care.Trump appears to be betting they don't. He's continued his attacks on war heroes and generals, even as he tries to claim utmost respect for the military. And he's dismissing...
    FORMER Man United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is braced for more noisy neighbours after losing a planning battle. He objected strongly to next door’s application to demolish a two-storey house and build a three-storey mansion. 2Sir Alex Ferguson has lost a planning battle against his neighboursCredit: Paul Edwards - The Sun Fergie’s lawyers sent a five-page opposition letter to planners. He claimed his privacy would be affected by removal of trees which would also impact the character of the area. He said the removal of trees was “likely to have a significant impact on the character of the area and the existing privacy standards afforded”. Sir Alex and wife Cathy also warned that previous developments in the private road in Wilmslow, Cheshire, had also caused flooding problems and that the development was not in keeping with the rest of the houses in the area. But planners decided to allow the scheme in Wilmslow, Cheshire. A source said: “Fergie had a well documented problem with Manchester City during the final years of his time at Old Trafford - dubbing them ‘noisy...
