Just heard an explosion in #Budapest and were asked to evacuate the restaurant. Anyone knows anything?

(THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS STORY DETAILS WILL BE UPDATED UPON NEW INFORMATION.)
Police have alleged that the loaded gun they found at the scene had the fingerprints of Keith Scott but have denied request to release surveillance footage of Keith Scott aiming a firearm at a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department Officer and the officer subsequently firing back four kill shots to neutralize his “suspect” Keith Scott. What is Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department hiding by refusing to be transparent with the Public why won’t they release the video?
Protesters are calling for Charlotte-Mecklenburg police to make body-cam footage of the shooting public. Police Chief Kerr Putney has refused to release the footage thus far. With such refusal to make the surveillance body cam and dash-cam footage available to the public at large the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police shows that they potentially have something to hide even if that’s not the case that’s the vibe the general population feels when there is a lack of transparency. It should be no problem to release surveillance video of a police involved incident if the officer followed protocol and did nothing wrong. What worries me most is that this happened in the parking lot of where the Scott’s lived.
Was Scott racially profiled by Charlotte-Mecklenburg police, or is he a thug? As the Mecklenburg police contend, either way the evidence needs to be released to prove or disprove whether or not Keith Scott had a gun and clearly that’s not a problem since there are body cams and dash-cams and three officers at the scene were wearing body-cams not to mention the squad cars with equipped dash-cams. Why can’t the Mecklenburg Police department be like the Tulsa Police Department and show transparency to an issue that has since become national and is causing riots in North Carolina and else where in the U.S?
The Tulsa Police Department has admitted that their officer Betty Shelby gunned down Terence Crutcher after his car reportedly broke down and was seeking help. The video shows Crutcher with his hands up in the air before he was shot by officer Betty Shelby. Police surveillance videos show Crutcher walking toward his SUV with his hands up while Four officers, approach him as he walks to the driver’s side and seems to lower his hands and put them on the car. A man in the helicopter video then makes a joke and says “That looks like a bad dude, too. Probably on something “time for a Taser.”
The decision not to release the video is only harming the state of North Carolina and other states in the U.S. with people rioting in the streets without knowing all the facts either way you will still have people who riot and don’t care about the facts. Especially with one of the families lawyer’s Justin Bamberg saying a statement like “There’s nothing in that video that shows him acting aggressively, threatening or maybe dangerous,”
Members of the Congressional Black Caucus in Washington protested outside the Department of Justice building today and demanded a stronger, tougher response from Attorney General Loretta Lynch in response to repeated instances of police shooting Black African American men.
~Rep. Maxine Waters, said.
Meanwhile North Carolina has been flooded with protest, and violent riots while the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police refuse to release surveillance footage of Scott holding a gun and it’s police chief has said they will release the video when they find a compelling reason to do so.
“We will release it when we believe it is a compelling reason, but I’m not going to jeopardize the investigation,”
~Chief Kerr Putney
Well you said when you have a compelling reason to do so Chief Kerr Putney? How about saving your state and other states in the united states from looking like Ferguson, Missouri? The faster you show transparency the quicker we can all move on with the facts honestly, if Keith Scott was armed then show the proof to the public not just the family.
A 29 year old woman, Lauren Puryear of New Jersey, used coupons as a tool to bring thousands of meals to people in need at her local homeless shelter and has pledged to feed 30,000 people by the end of this year.
In 2012, Lauren started an organization called “For The Love of Others”, which aims to assist people “through providing opportunities to enable them to live a purposeful life,” according to the group’s own website.
Puryear has already delivered meals to thousands of people and has set a goal for her 30th birthday to help feed a total of 30,000 people. She told NJ.com her process, how she buys the items at the store, sometimes receiving items for free, with no cost at all. She also said she was a mental health clinician, but when she’s not working, examining patients mental health, she is doing another job, being a person that can brighten someones day or give hope, bringing meals to people on the east coast in New Jersey, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and many other homeless shelters.
“I started couponing for food items like spaghetti, meatballs, and I was (often) able to get the items for free or for little to no money. There are coupons in the Sunday paper, or online that you can print … so I collect as many as I can, match them to the store and that is how I am able to get the items for free,” Lauren Puryear said.
So far in 2016, Puryear has managed to deliver a total of 5,000 meals to others. “The joy of helping other people does not compare to any other accomplishment in my life,” she said.
In the midst of the doom and gloom, constant shootings, and bad news, it’s stories like this that give hope to humanity that need to be more frequently covered. Everyday people do selfless acts like this but those people don’t make the news for their efforts to make a change in their own local communities. I applaud Lauren’s organization for helping to feed 5,000 and pledging to feed 30,000 by the end of this year.
If we all practiced this type of kindness, when we could, to give a little bit to others when we can, we would be a greater humanity. Let’s remember we only got one planet and we are one human race, reach out and help out another fellow man or woman. The feeling you feel inside is beautiful knowing you helped another human being in need because you could do something. That person won’t forget you, you will forever be ingrained in that person’s mind. That’s exactly what’s needed sometimes, for someone to be there, to pick you back up when your at your lowest. If you can do that for another person, you will realize that life isn’t just about sex, money and drugs like entertainment echoes in our heads on the radio. Life is about being able to unite as a people for a common goal. It’s sad that sometimes the only way we unite is through a tragic hurricane or tornado, when everyday, there are people who are homeless and starving exactly like those victims of a major storm. Those people are the homeless living on the streets who don’t have anything, living under bridges, in parks, sleeping on the sidewalk or park bench. Think about that…. and find a way to help.
The now-viral video begins with Ken E. Nwadike Jr., a black man wearing a #FreeHugs t-shirt embracing a white Charlotte, police officer, who thanks him for remaining peaceful.
In the background, Black Lives Matter protesters immediately become rowdy over this man’s action, cussing and complaining and accusing him of not being black.
— Joel Franco (@OfficialJoelF) September 23, 2016
Nwadike embraces another African-American police officer as one man yells “You a pussy, nigga!”
“It’s not even like that, it’s about staying neutral,” replies Nwadike.
An irate protester begins screaming “No my nigga these motherfuckers aren’t stay neutral.” Nwadike responds, “Did he kill somebody?” pointing at the white officer.
“Did he kill somebody?” he repeats, pointing at the African-American officer.
The irate protester then continued yelling back. “Mind you that’s my mother fucking family that squad killed bitch.”
The protestor makes a hypocritical point – Black Lives Matter activists complain about stereotyping all black people as criminals, but are perfectly fine to stereotype all cops as bad, racist murderers or pigs.
“Look if one black person does something that doesn’t make every black person bad. If one cop does something we can not say that every cop is bad,” said Nwadike. “We cannot say that every cop is bad, none of these people here shot anyone!” Nwadike tries to explain to a woman, who isn’t interesting in listening to him and continues to scream in his face while demanding he remove his “free hugs” t-shirt.
The woman at one point in the video begins tugging on Nwadike’s shirt. Another black man then interjects and agrees with Nwadike.
“We know where he’s coming from he’s speaking from a message of peace.” Nwadike then thanks the other man for agreeing with him.
“The thing is, I see them as human beings just like I see everybody on this side as human beings,” he continues explaining to the crowd of protesters. “This uniform doesn’t make him a robot, just like your skin color doesn’t make you a criminal.
“This man gave me a hug,” Nwadike said, pointing at the white police officer, “and this man wants to fight me because of that,” pointing at a Black Lives Matter protester in the crowd who earlier started yelling profanities when he hugged the police officers.
“How does that make sense? Spreading more hate into the world, that’s what’s frustrating me,” Nwadike continued.
Although Nwadike might have a hard time convincing some protesters – as 70% of those arrested weren’t even from North Carolina – when will Black Lives Matter supporters realize that their movement was staged by a rich white man named George Soros.
Some BLM supporters have no problem taking money from a white man that wants to cause division, while others have no problem beating up a white man and dragging him and beating him up as some did in North Carolina. No matter the melanin in your skin color we are all human beings and the Free Hugs hero Ken Nwadike dared to stand up against BLM and expose the double standard of hypocrisy.
Nwadike ended his powerful speech saying “All lives matter.” Yes, some police officers are murdering black men, but all cops are responsible for the individual actions done by by a few. It’s also worth noting – by making this a black vs. white issue, we are taking away from where the real concentrated effort and power should be going – and that’s the proper practices needed in hiring and training of police officers.
We Are Change previously recorded Ken Nwadike, the Free Hugs activist at the riotous protest against Donald Trump in San Diego.
Everybody talks about changing the world. We hear it in popular songs, political speeches, from the mouths of celebrities, on television and in everyday conversations. But it seems to remain this abstract everybody talks about while usually still going about business as usual, often slaving for the very system they wish to change.
Why is there so much talk about change, but so little change in comparison? What are we missing here? Is it really up to authorities, experts and professionals to figure out this whole “changing the world” thing? Actually, the world is full of those, and look where we are at. We still have war, poverty, greed, oppression, environmental destruction, and the the list goes on and on. The problems of this world might be complex, but what if the formula for world change is much simpler than we think?
The team behind WeCO asked themselves these same questions, and absolutely NAILED the answer in this powerful video. This perspective is greatly needed in this movement for truth and freedom. And the solution it provides is what I believe will drive humanity forward and allow each and everyone of us to be the change we have been conceptualizing about for all these years.
We keep talking about wanting to “take down the elite”… but if only we knew what would, we’d be doing things drastically differently.

Hackers from DC Leaks released a new trove of documents on Thursday that include emails from a White House staffer, Secret Service plans and details about Hillary Clinton, Vice President Joe Biden and First Lady Michelle Obama’s personal schedules.
The leak revealed emails from Clinton’s travel coordinator, Arielle Medina, gave insight into how much those working for Clinton’s campaign are paid daily.
“You will receive a day rate for full work days and 1/2 of that rate for travel-only days. The rate for leads is $150 ($75 for travel-only); the rate for press leads, site leads and RONs is $110 ($55 for travel-only); the rate for credentials, S2/P2s, and motorcade is $75 ($37.50for travel-only).”
Just as with Colin Powell’s hacked email, Medina was using a Gmail account that was breached by the group.
The hack also revealed a Power Point presentation detailing Vice President Joe Biden’s recent trip to the Intercontinental Hotel in Cleveland on June 26. The detailed report includes everything down to how many stairs Biden will be walking up, who he will be expected to meet and speak with at the event, etc.
It also included phone numbers and the manifest on Clinton’s private plane, and a copy of Michelle Obama’s passport.
In response to the hack, White house Press Secretary Josh Earnest said, “We take any reports about a cyber breach seriously, particularly if it contains some sensitive information. Certainly, this is something we are taking a close look at.”
DC Leaks is the same group that hacked into the email account of former Secretary of State Colin Powell earlier this month, releasing his private information and revealing his hatred for Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, and exposing Hillary and Bill Clinton’s long speculated hate of President Obama.
In an email with Dailymail, the DCLeaks hackers said a similar statement to Guccifer 2.0 that “the leaked files show the security level of the government adding that if terrorists hack emails of White House Office staff and get such sensitive information we will see the fall of our country.”
Talking about the Tulsa, Oklahoma shooting of Terence Crutcher, Republican nominee Donald Trump called for more accountability, better training, and to weed out the weak minded who can’t handle the stressful and demanding job of being a police officer.
Trump said officers who choke under pressure and are quick to make rash decisions shouldn’t be police officers at a speech in Cleveland, Ohio.
Trump told the crowd, “As you know I am a tremendous believer in police and law enforcement, because we need that for ourselves, we do, and I really got the endorsement from so many different groups and there great people, great people, you always have problems you have someone in there that either makes a mistake or chokes.”
Trump has previously expressed support for law enforcement and has been endorsed by the largest police union in the U.S., even telling a police organization in New Hampshire, the New England Police Benevolence Association back in December that every single cop killer gets the death penalty if Trump wins. Trump also condemned the recent Dallas Police Officer shooting at a Virginia campaign rally in July.
Speaking about the Tulsa shooting, Trump also told the crowd, “I must tell you I watched the shooting in particularly in Tulsa, and that man was hands up, that man went to the car hands up, put his hands on the car. I mean to me it looked like he did everything you are supposed to do and this young officer I don’t know what she was thinking.”
Trump went on to call the shooting “very troubling,” questioning the decision making by female police officer Betty Shelby, who has now been charged with manslaughter.
“But I am very ,very troubled by it,” said Trump, “And we have to be very careful so these things are terrible that was in my opinion that was a terrible situation and we’ve seen others, and the police are aware of it too the police are troubled by it too. Now did she get scared was she choking what happened? Well maybe people like that who choke can’t be doing what they are doing.”
The Fraternal Order of Police responded to Trump’s criticism of officer Betty Shelby through it’s group’s executive director Jim Pasco. “He must be mindful of the due process rights and presumption of innocence accorded to all, including police officers,” said Pasco.
Trump is treading a cautious line between maintaining the support of law enforcement and it’s supporters, and the burgeoning group of black voters, independents, moderates, and former Democrats trending towards Trump. Recently, Trump also called for a “stop-and-frisk” in cities in response to the latest wave of shootings.

60% of People Can’t Go 10 Minutes Without Lying!
The Most Common Lie is ‘I’m Fine’
There are two things you can say for sure about human beings: our opposable thumbs make us great at using tools, and we are all big, fat liars. By age four, 90% of children have grasped the concept of lying, and it just gets worse from there.
Just how bad is it? According to a 2002 study conducted by the University of Massachusetts, 60% of adults can’t have a ten minute conversation without lying at least once. But even that number makes it sound better than it really is; those people in the study who did lie actually told an average of 3 lies during their brief chat. And I know you’re sitting there right now insisting you would be part of the 40% that didn’t lie. That’s what the liars in the study thought, too. When they watched the taped conversations back, they were shocked at how many fibs they had told.
We lie to everyone. Our parents get the worst of it, according to The Day America Told the Truth, with 86% of us lying to them regularly, followed by friends (75%), siblings (73%), and spouses (69%). But in general we lie about things that aren’t important, little things that we think will make us look better or more likeable. In a survey by a British film rental company, 30% of respondents had lied about seeing The Godfather.
I’ll admit that I am part of that 30%. The Godfather is a classic film, so you assume everyone has seen it. Since we want to fit in, we tell a little white lie. This in turn makes others think everyone else has seen the film and before you know it 3 out of every ten people are trying to carry on a conversation about the classic armed only with the knowledge that Marlon Brando was going to make someone an offer they couldn’t refuse.
Sometimes we do lie about things that matter. According to one estimate, 40% of people lie on their resumes. While that’s something for employers to be wary of, it’s worse if you are part of the 30% of internet users looking for love on a dating site. According to a study by Scientific American, a whopping 90% of people looking for a date online lie in their profile. The biggest fib told by women is an obvious one; on average ladies claim to weigh eight and a half pounds less than they actually do. Men, on the other hand, try to use their profile to convince potential partners that they are taller, richer, and/or better educated than they actually are.
But before you vow never to trust anyone again, here’s some food for thought: A study by the University of Toronto found that it is actually the most trusting people who are best able to tell when they are being lied to.

Chaos erupted last night in Charlotte, North Carolina, marking the second night of riots after the death of Keith Scott.
Scott was shot by police after allegedly refusing to drop his gun. Police have yet to release the dash cam video that proves Scott had a handgun.
Things turned violent Wednesday night, as protests quickly became violent riots. One person was arrested, two people were shot, another was critically injured and dozens more were injured, including civilians, police and emergency responders.
4 officers injured during demonstration. All non- life threatening
— CMPD News (@CMPD) September 22, 2016
The man critically injured was identified as a civilian and put onto life support after sustaining serious injuries. The people shot were reportedly not shot by police, but by a rioter, according to the city of Charlotte Twitter account.
ALERT: Fatal shot uptown was civilian on civilian. @CMPD did not fire shot.
— City of Charlotte (@CLTgov) September 22, 2016
However, the Charlotte Clergy Coalition for Justice, a local church group fighting for justice claimed that several of its members were just 10 feet from the victim when he was shot and they believe the shot was by police and are demanding surveillance CCTV video of the incident.
“I saw the man go down on the pavement, It was an ambush. The victim was shot while he stood between two ministers, and we believe he was shot by police. We would like to see surveillance video from the surrounding area that may have captured the shooting to determine who was responsible for the shooting.”
~Minister Steve Knight
Governor Pat McCrory declared a state of emergency and deployed the National Guard and State Highway Patrol troopers to assist local police.
“We cannot tolerate violence. We cannot tolerate the destruction of property and will not tolerate the attacks towards our police officers that are occurring right now, and I feel very strongly about that. That is not the American way.”
~Governor Pat McCrory, said.
I have declared a State of Emergency & initiated efforts to deploy the Nat'l Guard & Highway Patrol to assist local law enforcement in CLT

Police used riot gear, tear gas, flash bangs and batons to disperse the crowd rioting after Keith Scott’s death, which went viral after Scott’s daughter claimed he wasn’t carrying a gun but was instead carrying a book when he was fatally shot by officer Brentley Vinson. This story was corroborated by a neighbor witness who says a “book fell off his lap.” Until police release the dash cam video, the truth will remain up in the air.
Some rioters threw glass bottles at police and some shot fireworks at the officers. While some protesters marched peacefully, there was looting of a local sports store the NASCAR Hall of Fame and windows were smashed at local businesses and hotels. Rioters also stormed onto the highway, stopping traffic jumping on vehicles and smashing car windows with rocks.

CNN reporter Ed Lavandera was knocked down on live television by a rioter while attempting to report on the scene.
“We were just doing the report and I didn’t see it coming. All I heard was someone yelling at me that I needed to ‘tell the truth’ and the next thing you know I got kind of blindsided,” said Lavandera.
— Mashable News (@MashableNews) September 22, 2016
As many rioters were treating Charlotte like a race war, the police responded with the same level of aggression. One ex-military service member, 24-year-old Sage Lawson of Reidsville, NC, told the The Guardian, “They’re treating us like we’re in a war zone we couldn’t do this to people in Afghanistan. They can snatch people out of a crowd and just throw them in a van. We couldn’t do that in war.”
Calling for peace, Keith Scott’s wife Rakeiya Scott issued a statement,
“As a family, we respect the rights of those who wish to protest, but we ask that people protest peacefully. Please do not hurt people or members of law enforcement, damage property or take things that do not belong to you in the name of protesting.”
Many have contended that Keith Scott was lawfully carrying a gun, as North Carolina is an open carry state. While the dash cam video may eventually tell the truth on whether Scott’s shooting was justified, Scott’s wife has rightfully told protestors – don’t damage people or property. Two wrongs don’t make a right.
Online, several hackers affiliated with the online hacktivist collective Anonymous called for website sit in’s or DDoS attacks to take down the city police and state government websites in response to the way the police reacted to protesters.

For the people on both sides of the Black Lives Matter divide, remember – George Soros is paying millions to inflame this situation. As Americans, black and white, red and blue, we need to talk to each other. We can solve America’s policing issues and create a new peace in our country.
