Hells Angel Damiano Di Popolo sues blogger for defamation - Update I

A judge has ordered Surrey blogger Dennis Watson to remove from his website any articles he’s written about Hells Angel Damiano Dipopolo.

B.C. Supreme Court Justice Ronald Skolrood also ordered Watson, who has been running his “gangstersout” blog for six years, to refrain from writing or speaking about Dipopolo ever again.

How about this result citizens. We'll post rock solid facts about this fukkin GOOF until the courts issues ANOTHER fukkin order.


Damiano Di Popolo
A member of the Hells Angels has launched a defamation suit against a Surrey, B.C., blogger committed to "outing" members of the gang. In a B.C. Supreme Court notice of civil claim, Damiano Di Popolo claims a series of five articles published on Dennis Watson's Gangsters Out blog have exposed him to "contempt, ridicule and hatred."

Di Popolo says the posts imply he's a member of a criminal organization involved with a drug trafficking and stolen car ring.

But he claims nothing could be further from the truth.

Di Popolo says he has never been charged with a criminal offence or convicted, and the Kelowna Hells Angels have never been collectively charged either.
A 2011 B.C. Supreme Court ruling identified Di Popolo as a member of the Hells Angels. According to the claim, Watson's articles said the longshoreman was "president of the Kelowna Hells Angels that was charged in a large drug trafficking ring and convicted in of a huge stolen car ring."

Di Popolo claims Watson also implied he sent someone to the blogger's home to threaten him and scare his daughter.

Ohio police officer indicted on murder charges

CINCINNATI - UC police officer Ray Tensing's body camera video clearly shows that he committed "murder" when he shot and killed an unarmed black motorist at a traffic stop, prosecutor Joe Deters said Wednesday.

The video shows Tensing grab the outside door latch on 43-year-old Sam DuBose's car after DuBose couldn't produce a driver's license. After the door opens a few inches, DuBose pulls it and revs his engine. Tensing pulls his gun, shouts "Stop! Stop" and shoots DuBose in the head through the open window.
Tensing has said he was dragged by the car and forced to shoot at DuBose. But Deters dismissed Tensing's claim that he was dragged by the car and suggested that he shouldn't have pulled DuBose over to begin with.

Cecil the lion killed by U.S. dentist Walter Palmer - Update I

Zimbabwean hunter Theo Bronkhorst (left) and safari operator Honest Ndlovu wait to appear in Hwange magistrates court, July 29, 2015.
Emmanuel Fundira, the president of the Safari Operators Association of Zimbabwe, confirmed at a news conference on Tuesday that Palmer is wanted for the death of Cecil. Police spokeswoman Charity Charamba said 'we are looking for Palmer' who allegedly paid $55,000 (£35,000) for a big game permit and traveled from Minneapolis to Africa to kill a lion.

Palmer's hunting colleagues, professional Zimbabwean hunter Theo Bronkhorst and local landowner Honest Ndlovu have today arrived at Hwange Magistrates' Court to face poaching charges. If convicted, the men face up to 15 years in prison.
The dentist is said to be somewhere in the Twin Cities, though calls to numbers listed for his home and office went unanswered Tuesday.
A Minnesota dentist is facing a wave of internet outrage after being named as the hunter behind the death of Cecil the lion.

Walter Palmer, a dentist and avid hunter from Bloomington, Minn., was identified as the hunter who killed Cecil, a beloved and popular attraction Zimbabwe's Hwange National Park. He is thought to have paid approximately $55,000 US to shoot the lion with a bow and arrow.
Two men, a professional hunter and a farm owner, face poaching charges in Zimbabwe in connection to Cecil's death.
Killing the lion was illegal, because the farm owner didn't have a hunting permit, according to a joint statement from the Zimbabwe National Parks and Wildlife Authority and the Safari Operators Association.
Walter J. Palmer, 55, of Eden Prairie, is a practicing dentist in Bloomington.

Palmer’s dentist office on Rhode Island Avenue was closed Tuesday, apparently abruptly. One client showed up for his appointment unaware of the global turmoil surrounding his dentist. A note on the front referred visitors to a Minneapolis public relations firm.
During a nighttime pursuit, the hunters tied a dead animal to their car to lure the lion out of the national park, said Johnny Rodrigues, chairman of the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force. The American is believed to have shot it with a crossbow, injuring the animal. The wounded lion was found 40 hours later and shot.

SCI keeps a detailed record book in which members display photos, measurements and other information about animals they have killed. Palmer lists 43 kills, all by bow and arrow.

In new incriminating evidence against Dr Walter James Palmer, 55 who this afternoon has become the bane of the internet after hunting down Zimbabwe Cecil the lion, 2009 documents reveal that the River Bluff Dental practitioner settled a sexual harassment suit against him from a former employee.

According to the complaint, the female employee who was also a patient alleged ‘she was subjected to ongoing and unwelcome sexual harassment by (Palmer) including, but not limited to, verbal comments and physical conduct involving her breasts, buttocks, and genitalia.’

He admitting no wrongdoing and agreed to pay the former receptionist more than $127,000, the AP said.

Texas Trooper Brian Encinia

(CNN)The Texas trooper who stopped Sandra Bland for allegedly failing to use her signal while changing lanes threatened her with a Taser and said: "I will light you up!" Authorities on Tuesday released dashcam video of the July 10 traffic stop revealing new details about a case that has captured national attention.
Bland, 28, was found dead inside a cell at the Waller County Jail three days later.

Brian Encinia
Bland asks at least 10 times about why she is being arrested before Encinia replies she is resisting arrest. In his arrest warrant, Encinia wrote that Bland was pulled over for failing to signal a lane change and he “had Bland exit the vehicle to further conduct a safe traffic investigation.”
According to Encinia, “Bland became combative and uncooperative.”

“Numerous commands were given to Bland ordering her to exit the vehicle,” Encinia wrote. “Bland was removed from the car but became more combative.” He added that Bland was handcuffed “for officer safety”
“Force was used to subdue Bland to the ground to which Bland continued to fight back,” he added.

Bland was charged with assault on a public servant then booked in the Waller County Jail, where she later died.

After watching the dashcam video, Texas State Senator Royce West said at a press conference that it’s clear she never should have been arrested.

Ex-lottery worker convicted of rigging system to win $14M

Eddie Tipton
DES MOINES, Iowa — A former lottery security official was found guilty Monday of rigging a computerized Hot Lotto game so he could win a $14 million jackpot then trying to get acquaintances to cash the prize for him without revealing his identity.

Prosecutors said Eddie Tipton inserted a stealth program into the computer that randomly picked the numbers then deleted it so it could not be detected. Although Tipton, 52, never got his hands on the winning total, he was charged with two counts of fraud.

Surveillance shows the sale of a winning Hot Lotto ticket from Dec. 23, 2010, at the QuikTrip on East 14th Street.
Tipton, of Norwalk, had been working for the Des Moines-based Multi-State Lottery Association since 2003 and was promoted to information security director in 2013. As an employee, Tipton was prohibited from playing the lottery in Iowa. He was fired after his January arrest.

Iowa prosecutors allege Tipton bought the same numbers that he had programmed into the lottery computer a month earlier.

Mark Turner at Incakolanews (OttoRock) - Update

We report that Mr. Mark Turner is apparently NO LONGER the "Website Designer/Manager at Soluciones Practicas"

"Giannina Solari is now managing the ELLA Programme website. You can contact her at:" Best wishes, Mark"

One hopes Mr. Turner's immediate supervisor also feels the heat for his hand in Turner's larceny of a charity. Lesson here? Karma gets around, eventually. Mark Turner needs to look in the mirror and get his priorities correct.

Mark Turner - Incakolanews
We admit to following the dopey, dead and permanently ugly website of Mark Turner over at Incakolanews, every other week or so. Its not that we enjoy his usual spewing diatribe of excess profanity, nor his continual and non-stop self promotion.

We give the flaming boyotard full marks these days for showing his colours and making us laugh. He went to great lengths to spew AGAINST dopey paid tard and horrid wicked open arsey kisser Tommy Humphreys, but now Turner is spending virtually every waking hour posting nonesense on Humphreys' blog.

Tommy Humphreys
Our boyoTard has YEARS worth of dead worthless posts on his own blog, but now he figures his vast stupidity needs to be gracing the space of a mutt he abhors. Riiiiight Mark Turner. Pfffft.

Mark Turner ELLA Programme - Website Designer/Manager at Soluciones Practicas, Incakolanews
And here ladies and gentlemen is the material Marky needs to share with the world. (24/7/365)

" ... you get to masturbate hard because I actually address you."

"[OttoRock] cunning linguist "

"[OttoRock] and now...i go to the dentist."

Nuff said? Unfukkin real. We should note that Mr. Turner is apparently employed full-time so who exactly is paying for all of his valuable time every day?

Ira Gostin - Tahoe Resources IR "professional" - Update III

Geezus louiesus. If a body needed confirmation that Mr. Ira Gostin is faaaaaaaar beyond his competence his appearance on Youtube pretty well sums it up for anybody with working grey material. Our guy appears a beady eyed turd, ummmmming and ahhhing his professional stupidity for all to see.

Scary part is that these are PREPARED questions. If Ira Mark Gostin appears the dorkus with prepared questions, where is shareholder confidence he can tackle REAL questions?
Are we picking on poor Mr. Gostin unfairly? Mr. Gostin is a "re-brander" in other words he has managed to progress from a bankrupt working at Starbucks to a position that requires skills he very clearly doesn't have. His continual self-aggrandizing is like fingernails down a blackboard.

The real losers are shareholders of Tahoe Resources. They deserve much, much better.

Tahoe Resources Reno office.
Lets say howdy do to IR maven Mr. Ira M. Gostin. Mr. Gostin bills himself as ... "a marketing and corporate communications strategist with over 25 years’ experience in creative and results-oriented marketing, communications, and business development campaigns. He currently oversees the investor relations and corporate communications for Tahoe Resources Inc., a $3.5 billion publicly traded company, where he directs all communications and marketing efforts and helped establish the company as one of the top silver producers in the world. Ira was instrumental in Tahoe’s $505 million IPO in 2010."
That sounds like insulting rubbish and of course it is. In 2010 Mr. Gostin was 5 years into a bankruptcy, so whatever he was "instrumental" in had zero to do with the actual money. One MUST question how reasonable it is to have a corporate spokesperson that fails to pay his bills.

Minimal due diligence says our guy is a photographer and in fact is running a photography business in Reno. Are Tahoe Resources stakeholders even getting a "full-time" employee? It doesn't appear that way.
Mr. Gostin's most obvious shortcomings are twofold. He is continually self-aggrandizing and cannot shut his fully dopey mouth hole for love nor money. The result of this are YEARS WORTH of pure dopey comments that should not have ever been made in the first place.

In the world of REAL IR pros, knowing when to shut up and PREVENT damage is just as important, if not MORE important, than what is said.
“Let me ask you this – how often do you quote the National Enquirer,” said Gostin, referring to the popular North American grocery store tabloid. “Probably never.”

“I’m not going to tell you,’ said Gostin. “I don’t know about Guatemala law.” In Siglo Veintiuno’s original story, the wiretap evidence is described in the same way a reporter in Canadian court hearing would have done. The evidence is attributed to the prosecution, which in this case is the Guatemalan public ministry, without further detail. But Gostin says there is no attribution in the story. “Everything that was spoken was hearsay,” he said.
So that was a few years ago. Has Mr. Gostin's truly amazing clown show stupidity improved any?

"Neither GMP nor BMO responded immediately to a request for comment. Tahoe spokesman Ira Gostin said that the miner had heard that the offering was going well but that it could take a few days for the placement to be completed.

"I think that a near $1 billion deal doesn't materialize in a day," he said, adding however that Tahoe's existing shareholders were "very receptive" to the offer."
So there ain't no stopping inquiring minds. What was Mr. Ira Gostin doing professionally in 2005, when he was bankrupt you ask?

Mr. Gostin was "Marketing and Media" for the Reno Rodeo Cattle Drive. Hell no we couldn't make this up. So the connection betwix piles of cowchit in the desert and a major cap metals producer IR function is what exactly?
"More than 50 riders and 300 head of cattle arrived in Reno Thursday hours before the 95th annual Reno Rodeo." "We try to make this event a real cattle drive," said Ira Gostin.

Yup Mr. Gostin is fully qualified if THO ever organizes a fukkin Moo Moo Cow drive.
In 2008 Mr. Ira Gostin was a "marketing strategist" with Rand & Associates in Reno, Nevada. "A photojournalist turned commercial photographer, Ira went through an extensive career change with graduate school, management training at Starbucks and an internship at an advertising agency. Ira now works with small to medium companies connecting their marketing to increased profits."
Not to beat a dead Moo Moo Cow butt Mr. Gostin's propaganda on Tahoe Resources website is nada correct, observe ...
"He worked previously as a consultant specializing in strategic development and advised public companies regarding communications and annual reports. He was also an adjunct professor of journalism at the Reynolds School of Journalism, University of Nevada, Reno, and previously was a Pulitzer Prize-nominated photojournalist with the Associated Press."

"adjunct professor" means Gostin taught 2 classes years ago. His reviews from students were terrible.
