KIDNAPPED, ROBBED AND BEATEN …
43 year old Australian PGA player Robert Allenby was reported to have been kidnapped and robbed Friday night t in Honolulu, Hawaii.

“I didn’t think I was going to survive this one,” Allenby told the Australian Associated Press.
“I was separated from my friend (Anthony Puntoriero) in the bar after we had paid the tab at 10:48 p.m., and he went to the bathroom and next thing you know I’m being dumped in a park miles away.
“I only know this part because a homeless woman found me and told me she saw a few guys pull up and throw me out of the car. That is where I got the scrapes above my eye from the sidewalk.”
According to the AAP, Allenby believes he may have been drugged by the suspects at the bar.
“I didn’t think I was going to survive this one,” Allenby told the AAP. “I was separated from my friend in the bar after we paid the tab at 10:48 p.m. and he went to the bathroom, and next thing you know I’m being dumped in a park miles away.”

Indianapolis Colts LB Josh McNary Charged with Rape, Criminal Confinement with Bodily Injury and Battery (Update: Mc Nary Denied Allegations)
Another black eye for the NFL …
Indianapolis Colts linebacker Josh McNary has been charged with rape, criminal confinement with bodily injury and battery resulting in bodily injury stemming from an incident that occurred in the early morning hours of December 1, 2014. According to Fox 59, the victim told Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) sex crimes detectives that she met an unknown man at a downtown bar and went to his apartment when a fight broke out before McNary allegedly raped her. Talk about bad PR for the NFL. Ahead of the AFC Championship game between the New England Patriots and the Indianapolis Colts, the Colts brass, players and coaches have to deal with this alleged incident by one of their own. Some call it a distraction, we call it rape.
Indianapolis prosecutors have filed rape, criminal confinement with bodily injury and battery resulting in bodily injury charges against Indianapolis Colts linebacker Josh McNary.
Two Indianapolis police officers said a 29-year-old woman accused an unknown man of attacking her in the early morning hours of Dec. 1. That man later determined to be McNary.
According to the report, police determined the man was McNary after investigating a cellphone the woman claimed she took from the man’s apartment.
Court documents reveal that she said “I didn’t have the strength to push him off.” She also described “being in and out of consciousness.”
She took his cell phone when leaving his apartment.
A hospital examination revealed that the woman suffered injuries, including dried blood behind her ear. She told police she scratched her attacker. The victim told police that when she scratched McNary, he said, “Look what you did to me.”
Police used the cell phone to make the connection to McNary. When police arrived at his apartment, McNary told them, “I know why you are here.”
He said he preserved the bedding from the encounter and presented some of the woman’s clothing to police. McNary had also taken photos of the bedding, showing blood stains and other soiled areas.
Indianapolis Colts linebacker Joshua McNary denies the allegations that he raped a woman after a night of drinking at a Downtown bar.
On Thursday morning, McNary’s attorney, Edward F. Schrager, released the following statement on behalf of his client:
“Joshua McNary unhesitatingly denies all accusations made against him. Following the public release of these allegations, Joshua immediately reported to law enforcement officials in a respectful and peaceful manner.
“The charges and affidavit publicly disseminated on Wednesday afternoon are not evidence of wrongdoing, but simply one side’s story.”
The Indianapolis Colts have requested that commissioner NFL Roger Goodell immediately place linebacker Josh McNary on the League’s Commissioner Exemption list.
If the request is granted, McNary — who was charged on Wednesday with rape — would be ineligible to practice or attend games but would receive his playoff share of $44,000 for Sunday’s AFC Championship Game.
The NFL investigation is likely to follow, after which McNary could be suspended for a minimum of six games.
“That designation will permit the investigation provided by the League’s Personal Conduct Policy to run its course and will afford Josh the opportunity to focus on his defense against the charges,” the team said in a statement.

Donna Douglas, most know for her role as Elly May Clampett on the TV sitcom the ‘Beverly Hillbilly’s,’ has passed away at the age of 82 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Douglas passed away from pancreatic cancer surrounded by family and friends. She is survived by a son, Danny Bourgeois; a brother, Emmett R. Smith Jr.; two granddaughters; a grandson and two great-grandchildren. Although she played other roles, Donna Douglas will always be known as Elly May, the original Daisey Duke. She played Elly May on the Beverly Hillbilly’s from 1962 to 1971.
Donna Douglass was born Doris Smith in Pride, Louisiana in September 1932, and graduated from Redemptorist High School in Baton Rouge. She was crowned Miss New Orleans and Miss Baton Rouge in beauty contests. Unlike many Hollywood stars who resent their claim to fame and being typecast, Donna Douglas never did, she relished it.
“Today the role of Elly May has been a beautiful opportunity, a wonderful little door opener for me to share my heart with others, whether speaking in churches, ladies conferences, youth groups, schools, conventions, and various civic organizations, or one on one,” her website bio said. “Amazing what God can do with a life, if given the opportunity!”
The Beverly Hillbillies – Elly’s First Date, 11/21/62
Donna Douglas, who played the shapely, blue-eyed daughter of the suddenly wealthy mountaineer Jed Clampett on “The Beverly Hillbillies,” the wildly popular television sitcom of a half-century ago, died on Thursday in Baton Rouge, La.
Ms. Douglas, who lived in the Baton Rouge suburb of Zachary, had pancreatic cancer and died in a hospital, her niece Charlene Smith said. Though other sources listed her as 81, Ms. Smith said her aunt was 82.
Ms. Douglas appeared in various movie and television roles before and after “The Beverly Hillbillies,” which ran on CBS for nine seasons. But she was destined to be forever remembered as Elly May Clampett, the lovely ingénue of the Ozarks.
She was chosen for the part from among hundreds of actresses, and in her view it was her small-town Southern upbringing that had made her a natural for the part. During her audition, she was asked to milk a goat.
“I had milked cows before,” she told The Associated Press in 2009. “I figured they were equipped the same, so I just went on over and did it.”
“The Beverly Hillbillies” burst upon the scene on the evening of Sept. 26, 1962. “In tonight’s fun-filled premiere, Buddy Ebsen stars as the head of a proud hillbilly clan that discovers an oil well at home that leads to a new home in Hollywood!” a CBS print advertisement proclaimed. Other cast members included Irene Ryan as the flinty matriarch Granny and Max Baer Jr., as the bumpkin cousin Jethro Bodine.

Violent Protests Break Out in Berkeley, MO After White Police Officer Shoots and Kills Black Male Near Ferguson (Male Killed ID’d as 18 Year Old Antonio Martin)
FOLKS, WHAT PART DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND … IF YOU POINT A GUN, REAL, FAKE OR WHATEVER, AT A POLICE OFFICER AND YOU WILL BE SHOT DEAD.
White police officer shoots and kills
unarmed armed black male. Riots broke out last night around 11 pm in Berkeley, Missouri after a police officer shot and killed a black man at the gas station in the 6800 block of N. Hanley Road in Berkeley. According to reports, the suspect allegedly pointed a gun at police. St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar says the Berkeley shooting victim was black and the officer white. Berkeley is about 2 miles from Ferguson, Missouri. Needless to say, the shooting incident sparked riots from the community.
A crowd of about 200-300 people gathered outside of a gas station in north St. Louis County overnight after a Berkeley police officer shot and killed an armed 18-year-old.
According to Sgt. Brian Schellman, a spokesman with the St. Louis County Police Department, the shooting took place at 11:15 p.m. at the Mobil station in the 6800 block of N. Hanley Road.
The officer was responding to a reported theft at the gas station when he noticed two young men along the side of the building. As the officer walked toward the front door, one of those men pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the officer, Schellman said.
The officer opened fire, striking the armed man, who died at the scene. The second man ran off.
The incident is reported by the St. Louis County Police Facebook page:
The St. Louis County Police Department is conducting an investigation into a shooting death involving a Berkeley, Missouri police officer.
At approximately 11:15 PM on December 23, 2014, a police officer with the City of Berkeley was conducting a routine business check at the Mobile Gas Station located at 6800 N. Hanley when he observed two male subjects on the side of the building.
The Berkeley Police Officer exited his vehicle and approached the subjects when one of the men pulled a handgun and pointed it at the officer. Fearing for his life, the Berkeley Officer fired several shots, striking the subject, fatally wounding him. The second subject fled the scene.
The Berkeley Police Department requested the St. Louis County Police Department’s Crimes Against Persons Unit to handle the investigation. St. Louis County Police Detectives have recovered the deceased subject’s handgun at the scene.
At this time, we cannot confirm the identity of the deceased subject. The investigation is on-going and further details will be provided as the investigation proceeds.
Once again we are presented a picture of an innocent teen, who would never hurt anyone and whose mother said did not even own a gun. Other so-called witnesses on the scene claim he was running away from the police officers. We have heard this song and dance before. It is certain that the gas station had video surveillance so I am sure we will know whether or not the deceased had a gun or not and how it all went down. Get ready for Hands, Part Deux.
An 18-year-old male held a gun “straight out” at a Berkeley, Missouri, police officer before that officer fired “what we think … were three shots,” St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said Thursday. The man — who died after being shot by the officer — is not believed to have fired any shots himself, according to Belmar.
After the officer left his squad car, one of the pair pointed a gun at the officer, who fired multiple times at him, killing him, Schellman said. The second person fled, police said.
The slain man was Antonio Martin, an 18-year-old African-American, his family told CNN.
Police say the officer, whose name wasn’t immediately released, shot in self-defense.
Police said they did not know who the second person was, but they called him a “person of interest” and asked for the public’s help to find him.
They said two bystanders on the Mobil parking lot were witnesses.
At a news conference later Wednesday morning, Berkeley Mayor Theodore Hoskins said, “You can’t compare this to Ferguson or the Garner case in New York.” He said the videotape showed the suspect pointing a gun at the officer. He said the city would conduct its own complete investigation, separate from the St. Louis County Police investigation.
“Our overall goal is to project the truth to residents,” Hoskins said.
Among the department’s 31 officers, the mayor said, 17 or 18 are African-American. About 75 percent of the command staff are black, in addition to the mayor, police chief and other city officials, Hoskins added.
“At this point, our review indicates that the police did not initiate this, like Ferguson,” Hoskins said.

HOW DOES A MAYOR’S SON WITH A POLICE DETAIL GET MUGGED … HOW COME WE WERE PROVIDED NO DESCRIPTION OF SUSPECTS?
17 year old Zach Manuel, the son of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, was assaulted and robbed Friday afternoon by two men. The Mayors son was a victim of a robbery outside his Lakeview home when he went outside to make a call. Chicago police confirmed Saturday that a robbery occurred about 10:05 p.m. Friday near the mayor’s home where he was approached by two unknown male offenders who grabbed him, assaulted him and went through his pockets, taking his phone. According to accounts, Zach suffered a fat lip and chipped tooth in the attack. No suspects have been arrested.
The teenage son of Mayor Rahm Emanuel was the victim of a robbery outside the mayor’s Lakeview home Friday night, a spokesperson from the mayor’s office confirms.
Police were called to the 4200 block of North Hermitage at 10:05 p.m. Friday for a report of a robbery on the street where there would normally already be a police presence.
Emanuel’s 17-year-old son went out to make a phone call when he was jumped by two men who stole the teen’s cell phone.
Chicago Tribune – Zach Emanuel was robbed of his cellphone and assaulted.
Zach Emanuel was talking on his cellphone in the 4200 block of North Hermitage Avenue, across the street and a few houses down from the Emanuel home, when two males approached him from behind, according to the police report.
One of them “placed his arm around the victim’s neck in a rear chokehold,” and the second one struck the teen with a fist, knocking him to the ground. The robbers took the teen’s cellphone and patted him down, the police report said.
“The offenders then asked the victim, ‘What else you got?’ (and) forced the victim to enter his security code to unlock the phone,” the police report said.
The robbers then ran away. The teen was treated for cuts and bruises on his face by a personal physician at his home, according to the report.
