A Boston bar is being sued by the state’s Attorney General
after some patrons accused the pub of implementing a
Massachusetts AG Martha Coakley is taking legal action
against Peggy O’Neil’s, saying Monday that the watering hole
has engaged in “a pattern of not allowing customers of color
to enter and use the bar.”
The Boston Globe reported that in December that two African-
American men were refused at the door when they were
trying to get in for a white friend’s birthday party.
The birthday girl tried to intervene, but according to the
report, Caron O’Neil, the bar’s owner, refused to let the guests
come inside – as 10 white customers were let in.
When they asked how much it would cost to get in, they were
told “$10 or $15,” the Globe reported.
That’s when, the men say, O’Neil came out and asked if it was
their first time there.
When they said it was, O’Neill replied “We don’t want any
trouble tonight. I don’t know you guys, and you should try to
find another place to go.”
Later that night, she allegedly told another group of black
patrons “We don’t like people of your kind here. We’ve been
doing this for a while and it’s been working fine and we don’t
want any problems. . .I’m not letting you people in.”
Coakley’s suit seeks monetary damages, civil penalties and a
request that the staff go through anti-discrimination
training, WBZ-TV reported.
“I’m sure it will all clear up,” O’Neill told the Globe.
The bar, which has been operating in Boston’s Dorchester
neighborhood since 1963. It’s named after the family
matriarch, Margaret “Peggy” O’Neil, who died in May, the
On the review website Yelp.com, patrons called the pub a
great dive bar.
“Love Peggy O’s! Great people, food and best DJ around!” one
But when news of the allegations emerged, people quickly
wrote that they wouldn’t be taking a bite out of the bar’s
famous steak tips.
“This place is racist,” one user wrote. “No thank you.”
Apparently the owner Carone is well to do. Most business owners are equal opportunity feeders. Imagine the embarassment that the party host felt after inviting their friends to party with them and have this transpire. Its really disheartening that anyone who serves food to the general public would operate out of hate. This establishment should be shut down.
Seriously, I cannot stand this guy. I remember when I used to watch this money grubbing hoodlum on the tube when it was cool to be a Christian and I was amazed at how much money he had and how much success with his fans. I call them fans because there’s no other way to describe his folks, but lost sheep or followers.
This guy is so full of himself, but isn’t that the case with all pastors? Of course it is. Oh, by the way, I am Atheist. But I used to be a Christian, few years back. And this is one of the reasons that I decided that following some imaginary man in the sky was kinda fucked up. Not only that, I actually begin to read the bible and see it for the load of crock it is. I admit, there is some inspiring stuff in there, but just like any author can spot, I can detect a well written story. (Parts of it anyway).
So, this guy, chokes his daughter, beats her and emotionally scars her gets a $5,000 bond? And he gets to go back home to where this child victim is. I hope they remove ANY AND ALL kids from his house and he should not be allowed to raise children from this point. Seriously, I was waiting for this douchbag to come forth with whatever his issues are. What a prick? And where is Taffy in all this? Creflo strikes me as a dictator, as all pastors must be in order to get others to obey them rather than the good book. But don’t you get tired of reading about another pastor who is caught up in some shit/scandal and now they are all sorry and asking for prayers from their customers? When will this shit end? As soon as peoplen wise up and start to think for themselves.
Creflo Dollar has tons of money, and he will never need money again,
FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. — Creflo Dollar, founder and pastor of World Changers Church International, was arrested early Friday on charges involving the choking of his 15-year-old daughter.
Dollar was taken into custody at his Fayetteville home and charged with simple battery and cruelty to children, NBC station WXIA of Atlanta reported.
According to the report from the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office, Dollar’s daughter called police to say that her father attacked her after they argued about whether the daughter could attend a party.
The report says the daughter alleged that Dollar choked her, then threw her to the ground, punched her and hit her with his shoe. The responding officer noticed a scratch on the daughter’s neck near her throat; the daughter said her father gave her the scratch during the fight.
When police interviewed Dollar, he said he tried to restrain his daughter when she “became very disrespectful” after he told her she couldn’t go to the party, according to the report. Dollar admitted to spanking his daughter and wrestling her to the floor, but said it was because she hit him.
Dollar was taken to the Fayette County Jail after his arrest. Fayette County Police spokesman Brent Rowan said Dollar had his first appearance in magistrate court Friday and posted $5,000 bond, WXIA reported.
“As a father I love my children and I always have their best interest at heart at all times, and I would never use my hand to ever cause bodily harm to my children,” Dollar said in a statement released by his lawyer Nikki Bonner and obtained by The Associated Press. “The facts in this case will be handled privately to further protect my children. My family thanks you for your prayers and continued support.”
Dollar will make no further comments since he’s involved in an ongoing criminal matter, but he is expected to preach Sunday, Bonner said.
According to his website, Dollar began World Changers ministries in 1986 and it grew, moving in 1996 the 8,500-seat World Dome, built in College Park for nearly $18 million without any bank financing. He and his wife, Taffi, church co-pastor, have five children. The ministry has 16 satellite locations and plans more. Creflo and Taffi Dollar also host “Changing Your World” television and radio broadcasts. The program is featured on the Trinity Broadcast Network.
Dollar was among six televangelists investigated in 2011 by Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley and the Senate Finance Committee. Their report raised questions about the personal use of church-owned airplanes, luxury homes and credit cards by pastors and their families, and about the lack of oversight of finances by boards often packed with the televangelists’ relatives and friends.
Dollar and his World Changers Church International of College Park and Creflo Dollar Ministries were among four televangelism organizations that the committee said did not cooperate with the investigation.
Dollar was a favorite of Rudy Eugene, the naked man shot dead by a Miami officer May 26 when, police say, he would not stop eating the face of a homeless man, Ronald Poppo.
“We watched Creflo Dollar Ministries every morning,” Yovonka Bryant, Eugene’s girlfriend, told a news conference covered by NBCMiami.com on Wednesday.
This guy has not a care in the world, because as long as there are
desperate mindless folks out there who have to believe in this god nonsense, he will always have a pulpit to spew his religious bullshit.
I feel sorry for his daughters who will have to face this freak again and may have no defense. I was asking where Taffy was at in all of this. But the truth is, no matter how we want the woman to be there for her daughters, if he is beating the shit outta the kids, then Taffy may have been a punching bag as well. These guys get diplomatic immunity in the community, I call it, “Community Immunity”, and that is where they can do no wrong. No one holds them accountable, because all they have to say is god forgive me and it is done. His membership just might increase behind this, and just like all the other sicko pastors, nothing staggers nor wavers the minds of the brainwashed Christian. That’s fucked up, but that’s life and we all get to sit back and watch this foolishess. What type of man puts his hand on his daughter? When your daughter gets to be a certain age, you should not even consider touching them. Now that is for those who believe in corporal punishment. Not child abuse. But a teenage girl should NOT be hit by her father. That is disgusting and he is a worthless piece of shit for doing this. Someone should beat the stench of faith off of him and show him how it feels. I’d do it personally given the chance. Yes I’m a girl, and I’d kick that shit out of that ass. I get so upset writing about this stuff. I bet a bunch of idiots come on this blog and tell me about forgiveness. In advance I’d like to say a solid FUCK YOU. Just to clear the air and let you know, I really don’t give a shit what you think of me or this blog.
For the record, I do not condone abuse or spanking kids. What I am saying is this. If you have a toddler and you spank that child, (within) reason to correct behavior, there should come a time to end that. Your child should have grown and matured enough to understand the difference between negative behaviors. You should also be aware as a parent that hitting your child does not change behavior. It cause resentment and a lack of respect from child to parent. Yes the child may fear you, but that’s not respect. Creflo wants to control everything around him. Bad enough he has an entire entourage of goons that support him and answer to his beckon call, but now he must control the mindset of his children as well? Get over yourself dude. You’re just a human like everyone else. If you were smart, you’d let your children live their lives and think for themselves. If you trust that you’ve done a good job, then you should trust your kids. His character is displayed here. I just hope that they keep an eye out on that address. If this girl had the need to call 911, imagine the fear that she was feeling at the time. And the 19 year old older sister of hers also attested to the events that had taken place? That says something about this nightmare. What daughter would want to call the cops on their famous dad? If you could just imagine how the children in a household like this would feel. So many people revering this non entity Dollar, and yet he is an abusive father. Who will believe these girls? And don’t we think that the bond was too low?
5,000 for choking a kid? That’s all you get these days? Looking at that Mugshot up above sheds more light on something. He isn’t the dapper intellectual that we all see on tv is he? He looks like a criminal in this photo and it suits him just fine.
On another note. I just left a site that actually acted as if they were gonna side with the child. Instead they said. “she hit him first and that he retaliated.” Ummmm, under NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD A MAN EVER EVER LAY A HAND ON A GIRL/WOMAN. Seriously? So basically, this news source is saying that it reports the news, but it condones this father hitting the child. Why? Because girls grow up and I quote, “their hips get wide and their breast get full, so they think they are grown.” Wow, so this is what girls have to deal with? Even if she did hit him first, as if she could really hurt him. He could have restrained or let the mother deal with the girls. Women deal with girls and men deal with their sons when it comes to situations like this. You don’t bully your daughter because you can. So, NewsOne, you got this one wrong. Here is another quote.
“If Creflo had to tackle his daughter to keep her in the house that night, then part of me applauds him. A prominent Father who is willing to risk the humiliation of jail in order to protect his child is the kind of hero that the Black community needs.”
What community? Black community? GTFOH! Let me stop while I can.
But as far as I’m concerned, physical confrontations with a child are not necessarily child abuse.
In a world where Black children are shot every day by one another and by the police, the tough hand of a loving parent might be the only thing that keeps that child out of the morgue. I encourage others to refrain from judging Pastor Dollar’s parenting techniques until the evidence is fully revealed. Also, I wouldn’t be surprised if one day, his daughter thanks him for his sacrifice.
Those two quotes above are given by Dr. Boyce Watkins. So they give those degrees out to anyone I see. Common sense not required I suppose. I can see the daughter one day. “Thanks dad for choking the shit outta me and not trusting me to make my own decisions and choose wisely based on what you’ve taught me.” This Dr is worried about Creflos daughter being the victim of sexual assault if he doesn’t reign her in, but fails to see the physical abuse that she suffered at the hands of her own father.
A young African American boy walks down the street carrying a bag of skittles and a cup of sweet tea is gunned down by a trigger happy community (official). His job was to be a neighborhood watchman. To say the least he took the situation too far. He murdered a young boy in cold blood and seems to have no remorse. On the stand as he was being questioned regarding his actions, as it referred to the decision to give him bail, he made a shocking comment.”I didn’t know how old he was” From the mouth of the attacker/aggressor Zimmerman. Will he get off for committing this crime?
Here is the disturbing part. Most residents of Sanford, Florida are very much aware of the racial tension between the residents and law enforcement of that town. The city is known for stereotyping blacks. Yes, crime has been an issue there, just as it has been in many towns. What makes this town different? Blacks have no voice and have chosen not to exercise their rights to free speech. Marches were held, people came from 100′s of miles away all to be a part of the outreach towards the Martin family. Seemingly to no avail. Mainly because, the state of Florida has a multitude of communities of blacks that insist on staying silent and thinking that marching to songs like, “We Shall Overcome” will be beneficial to their cause. It wont help. It didn’t help when Martin Luther did it and it won’t now. Sounds pessimistic? Not at all. It’s a matter of fact. Al Sharpton, The New Black Panther Party arrived and yet Zimmerman is tucked away and being taken care of by the state. He has no fears. He is receiving support from a portion of his community that believes in his story and sees this as an opportunity to to express their fears and hate. Yet, where is the outreach for the Martin family? The news reported the website of George Zimmerman a several occassions. They mention the fact that he has a facebook page. They introduced his attorney. Yet, it seems that the Martin family has cowered away into their respective corners to sulk over the loss of their deceased son. Where is his justice? They have received very little coverage, and the footage that is being shown is surrounded by their vision of defeat and desperation. It is fair to say that if Trayvon Martin doesnt get justice, it may be due to the idea that his family is passive and too emotional. Meanwhile, Zimmerman looks headstrong. If this family wants justice, they have to fight in it. Unfortunately, as Christians, they will sit back and wait on god to deliver them and show up and give them the justice that they deserve. Hmmmmm, not gonna happen. No one gets anything in this world without a fight. Do you think that Zimmerman will walk?
Another point to mention. Where have the character witness’s so to speak who could attest to the fact that Trayvon was a good boy? Has the family rounded them up? Friends, acquaintances, neighbors…etc. This young boy needs people who can come to his defense. Its not up to the courts or law enforcement to provide this information, the parents must do their own detective work. George Zimmerman has had several people from his neighborhood state that he is a kind hearted young man. A dead man cannot speak.
This is the image that the media is now showing the general public. It is an attempt to make Zimmerman appear to be more acceptable rather than the horrible shot of him in his jail house Orange. You might be surprised that it actually works. The Z Team has their homework done. They want him to win and they have insisted that the media bite their ideals and less of the ideals of the deceased and his family. The tables have turned and pretty soon, the Martin family will be grabbing at anything they can to ruin the image of an already known killer.
This photo shows the face of a loving family man. He looks soft and gentle. Like Norman Bates states, "Wouldn't Harm a fly." He sells it well and the media is buying. Mankind is much like a sponge. Soaking up whatever we get an overdose of. This picture does not show what was shown the night Zimmerman committed this crime. This is the picture that the public will want to relate to.
So this is the face of HIV? Most women would look at this young man and not have a problem with sleeping with him. He’s attractive, he is employed, but he also has some problems. He is vindictive and deliberately slept with many women and didn’t inform them of his disease. He looks like a player. But what does it really take for women these days? Nothing much. These men find it easy to have sex with women at this time because sex is so easy to come by. Imagine this…9 women left themselves open to receive this disease and now a portion of them are now carriers. They will pass this disease onto someone else, and that will make it more wide spread. It is a cycle that repeats itself.
The law requires full disclosure, but who is monitoring it? No one. These women put themselves in the line of fire when they choose not to protect themselves. Should we feel sorry for them? They are old enough, they should have common sense enough to know better. Condoms take up their own little section of the stores these days. No one can say, “I didn’t know.” Those days are old. There are some circumstances where it’s not a persons fault if they get infected.
Example: A man meets a women. He begins to date her, and they eventually fall in love and start a family. She is HIV positive but doesn’t tell him. How is that his fault? Well he could have, during their dating process requested a test to be done. As they do offer couple testing. This is avoided because some people don’t want to come off as “being picky or particular”. But what’s worse, being embarrassed now, or being sick later? If he/she loves and respects you, they will be more than happy to oblige your request.
These women who slept with him were careless and more than likely were not on his list for starting a family. They were nothing more than booty calls, nothing more than sex partners. In that case, you definitely need to protect yourself. What is the proof that he/she is being exclusive to you? The women he slept with probably knew about each other too. More than likely, they were typically competing for the affections of him, but he ultimately got the last laugh. Read the story below…
LEBANON — A Cincinnati man who is HIV positive and was arrested for having sex with women in Hamilton County faces similar charges in Warren County.
A county grand jury Friday handed down nine charges of felonious assault against Andre P. Davis, 29. The indictments were made public on Monday.
Davis is accused of having sex nine times with four women in Warren County between December 2010 through January 2011, and knowing he was a carrier of the HIV virus but did not tell the women.
Ohio law requires people who know they are HIV positive to disclose that information to their partners.
Davis, a former professional wrestler known as the “Gangsta of Love,” had worked at the Macy’s customer calling center in Deerfield Twp.
Prosecutor David Fornshell said Davis faces 72 years in prison if convicted on the Warren County crimes.
“Three of the four victims knew him from the Macy’s calling center in Deerfield Twp. while the other victim met him separately,” Fornshell said.
He said Davis will be arraigned in Warren County Common Pleas Court at a yet to be determined date.
He is already under indictment by a Hamilton County grand jury on 15 counts of felonious assault, a second-degree felony, for having sex with 12 women there and not disclosing that he was HIV positive.
Davis was arrested by Cincinnati police in early April and has been in held at the Hamilton County Justice Center in lieu of a $275,000 cash bond. His next court date is today in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court.
