Fear Factor’s donkey semen episode off schedule


TMZ reported Sunday that Fear Factor will not air a previously scheduled episode entitled “Hee Haw! Hee Haw!” where contestants would eat the unimaginable: donkey semen, as NBC is concerned. Unimaginable? More like, nonhuman! What kind of sick f— dreams up the episodes on Fear Factor? And NBC is merely concerned?

In an earlier report released on Saturday, TMZ stated: “contestants on the show — shot last summer — are challenged to drink a glass of donkey semen (and one of urine) … and several of them did. The episode is scheduled to air Monday night.”

As of Wednesday last week TMZ has been reporting about the donkey semen episode and neither ethics nor animal cruelty has been discussed in any one of their reports.

Talk about animal cruelty? It is unthinkable, regardless of how the reality show obtained the donkey semen, this is just wrong.

27-year veteran LAPD Gang and Narcotics detective charged with grand theft


27-year veteran detective Ramon Alvarez of the Los Angeles Police Department Gang and Narcotics Division was arrested Friday and charged with grand theft upon him serving an arrest warrant at a suspected narcotics location when a fellow detective witnessed Alvarez take money from said site, according to a statement released by the LAPD.

The detective that witnessed Alvarez take money from the site immediately notified his supervisor, and Alvarez’s official vehicle was searched. Money that was believed to belong to the narcotics suspect was found inside Alvarez’s vehicle, according to the LAPD statement. LAPD’s Internal Affairs Criminal Investigation Division then arrested Alvarez for grand theft.

“I am extremely disturbed and shocked by the arrest, but heartened by the actions of the detective who immediately reported what appeared to be criminal behavior,” said Police Chief Charlie Beck in a report in the Los Angeles Times.

Bail was set at $20,000 and Alvarez was placed on administrative leave, pending the outcome of the criminal investigation, as well as the outcome of an administrative investigation.

“The arrest of an LAPD officer and a classmate is shocking and very disappointing,” said Tyler Izen, President of the Los Angeles Police Protective League in the Los Angeles Times report. “We expect law enforcement officers to hold themselves to the highest moral standards in their professional and personal lives, making the news doubly upsetting.”

UCLA's Rape Trail also known as the Saxon Steps which connects the Saxon Residential Suites to Gayley Avenue


Police continue a search for a man accused of sexual assault of a female UCLA student, the university which is ranked second of all universities nationwide and first in community service according to Washington Monthly’s rankings.

The sexual assault occurred at about 2:20 a.m. Friday at the top of the steps that connects the Saxon Suites dormitories with Gayley Avenue also known as the Rape Trail. The man accused of the assault called out to the female UCLA student while she was climbing the steps. After a short conversation, the man sexually assaulted her. Their brief conversation could have sounded something similar to the following: “Hey. What’s your name? What’s your major? Do you live around here? Yes? Well take some of this,” and the sexual assault occurred. The assault victim eventually got away from the man and immediately called the police, who arrived shortly thereafter and after the man had already fled the scene, according to a report in the Los Angeles Times.

It appears that UCLA police are looking for the suspect who is described as a 6 foot tall white male weighing 150 pounds and about 21 years old with short brown hair and blue eyes, according to a crime alert issued by the UCLA’s campus police department.

NBC4 was told by several students that the sexual assault occurred along a narrow stairway where other similar crimes have occurred in the past. Those students said that female students usually try to avoid walking the stairway alone at night.
