THE HYENA & OTHER MEN

by PIETER HUGO

“These photographs came about after a friend emailed me an image taken on a cellphone through a car window in Lagos, Nigeria, which depicted a group of men walking down the street with a hyena in chains. A few days later I saw the image reproduced in a South African newspaper with the caption ‘The Streets of Lagos’. Nigerian newspapers reported that these men were bank robbers, bodyguards, drug dealers, debt collectors. Myths surrounded them. The image captivated me.

Through a journalist friend I eventually tracked down a Nigerian reporter, Adetokunbo Abiola, who said that he knew the ‘Gadawan Kura’ as they are known in Hausa (a rough translation: ‘hyena handlers/guides’).

A few weeks later I was on a plane to Lagos. Abiola met me at the airport and together we took a bus to Benin City where the ‘hyena men’ had agreed to meet us.” – PIETER HUGO (Full Text Here)

Penis Shredder:
Rape aXe Lady Condoms

The Rape Axe condom (aka the condom that bites)  is the greatest invention ever made to help combat vaginal predators. Yet, there is a pretty ugly side to this device. With and on purpose, a multitude of women are going to use the Rape Axe against many of unsuspecting men. Yes, so many women wish their vagina could sprout teeth at will – for whatever reasons. The proof is in the pudding. I don’t have to go into great detail with examples for this one, just use your imagination. Men, beware of scorned women everywhere.

Woman Accidentally Confesses Crime.

By QMI Agency

CALGARY — It had all the makings of a perfect crime.

The culprits hid their valuables, from jewelry to electronics, smashed windows and even made faux bad-guy footprints before calling police.

Unfortunately, for those who hoped to foil authorities, Const. Charanjit Meharu was among those to arrive at the alleged break-and-enter scene.

When the purported victim, who was hysterical and saying she had lost everything and had a list of what was missing for cops, took a call from her father in Quebec telling him what happened in French, the carefully crafted ploy unraveled.

“She was telling him she and her boyfriend made up the story to make an insurance claim,” Meharu says.

“By the end, I had about 10 pages of notes and I said, ‘Merci beaucoup.’

“She didn’t expect a brown guy to speak French.”

That woman was charged with mischief.

French is just one of seven languages the 37-year-old constable speaks — along with English, Punjabi, Hindi, Urdu, Arabic and Gujarati.

Land O’Lakes woman accused of fighting boyfriend over last beer.

LAND O’LAKES — At 8:30 Wednesday night, a 53-year-old man sat in a chair, drinking the last beer in the house.

His girlfriend wanted it.

Elizabeth Breeden, 41, “went off” on him and tried to grab it out of his hand at their home on McKaig Lane in Land O’Lakes, according to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office.

He wouldn’t let go.

Breeden ripped the Natural Light can in half, spilling the lager on her boyfriend, his chair and the floor, a report states. The boyfriend stood up. Breeden slapped him in the face. Then she kicked him in the groin, authorities said.

Breeden told a deputy that her boyfriend kicked her and threw beer on her, which is why she ripped the can in half.

“The FBI War on Tupac Shakur and Black Leaders”

A controversial book is continuing to making headlines fort its message, one that claims that the FBI used one of the most notorious Hip-Hop labels in history as a means of suppression for Black activism.

Titled “The FBI War On Tupac Shakur and Black Leaders: U.S. Intelligence’s Murderous Targeting of Tupac, MLK, Malcolm, Panthers, Hendrix, Marley, Rappers & Linked Ethnic Leftists, the book was originally published in 2008 but is being highlighted again along with its accompanying DVD.

According to Author John Potash, Death Row Records was a sham—a front company that was filled with police officers working to stifle the creative genius Tupac Shakur from distributing his message of activism.
