Apparently, scammers attempt to swindle unsuspecting individuals by claiming to represent the Federal Reserve, so the bank decided to offer up some advice. Continue reading “The Federal Reserve Made a FB Post About Avoiding Scams… And It’s Getting Destroyed by Trolls”

Trouble is, some of the extremely wealthy residents of Presidio Terrace were not aware their street was up for sale and are not pleased it has been sold.
Presidio Terrace is an oval shaped street sealed off by a gate from the tony Presidio Heights neighborhood. Lined with towering palm trees and multimillion dollar mansions, the street has been home, over the years, to famous residents including Sen. Dianne Feinstein and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi. Continue reading “San Francisco street sells for $90K. Neighbors aren’t happy”

Since 2006, the nation’s largest police departments have fired at least 1,881 officers for misconduct that betrayed the public’s trust, from cheating on overtime to unjustified shootings. But The Washington Post has found that departments have been forced to reinstate more than 450 officers after appeals required by union contracts.
Most of the officers regained their jobs when police chiefs were overruled by arbitrators, typically lawyers hired to review the process. In many cases, the underlying misconduct was undisputed, but arbitrators often concluded that the firings were unjustified because departments had been too harsh, missed deadlines, lacked sufficient evidence or failed to interview witnesses. Continue reading “Police departments forced to take back hundreds of officers fired for misconduct”

When people read the department’s post, they lashed out — peacefully — to let them know what they were doing is wrong.
The department’s post has since gone viral, prompting both praise and scorn for their ridiculous image bragging about stealing money from a homeless man because he was drunk. Continue reading “Police Brag About Taking Money from a Homeless Man, Facebook Proceeds to Own Them”
