    Glass house, white Ferrari, live for New Year's Eve. Sloppy steaks at Truffoni's. Big, rare cut of meat with water dumped all over it. Water splashing around the table makes the night so much more fun. After the club, go to Truffoni's for sloppy steaks. They'd say, "No sloppy steaks." But they can't stop you from ordering a steak and a glass of water. Before you knew it, we were dumping that water on those steaks. The waiters were coming to try and snatch 'em up. We had to eat as fast as we could. Oh, I miss those nights.

    It's from a Netflix show "I Think You Should Leave".

    Wait, doesn't that kind of defeat the purpose? They both need to meet Vern Schillinger.

    Now that there is video evidence, Ditty apologizes. Yeah, too late.

    https://www.cnn.com/2024/05/19/entertainment/diddy-combs-apology-video-cassie/index.html

    “It’s so difficult to reflect on the darkest times in your life, but sometimes you got to do that,” Combs said in a video statement posted to Instagram. “I was f**ked up — I hit rock bottom — but I make no excuses. My behavior on that video is inexcusable.”

    He continued: “I take full responsibility for my actions in that video. I am disgusted. I was disgusted then when I did it. I’m disgusted now.”

    Oh, you were disgusted then? Really seems like you were, when it took a video +48 hours for you to come forward with some kind of self-serving apology.

    Combs did not mention Ventura by name.

    Ventura’s attorney Meredith Firetog said in a statement on Sunday following the release of Combs’ apology: “Combs’ most recent statement is more about himself than the many people he has hurt. When Cassie and multiple other women came forward, he denied everything and suggested that his victims were looking for a payday. That he was only compelled to ‘apologize’ once his repeated denials were proven false shows his pathetic desperation, and no one will be swayed by his disingenuous words.”

    So apologizing only after video evidence appears? Combs should have been a cop.

    It is a very long expose....Really sick stories. First paragraphs.

    They served in police departments big and small. They were new recruits and seasoned veterans, patrol officers and chiefs of police. They understood the power of their guns and badges. In many cases, they used that very power to find and silence their victims.

    A Washington Post investigation has found that over the past two decades, hundreds of law enforcement officers in the United States have sexually abused children while officials at every level of the criminal justice system have failed to protect kids, punish abusers and prevent additional crimes.

    All the while, children in every state and the District of Columbia have continued to be targeted, groomed and violated by officers sworn to keep them safe.

    Ain’t no way I’m reading that, although I thoroughly respect the reporting.

    I'll eventually read it, but saw it this morning and I'm, "Nope, not reading." Need to be in the right headspace for that.

    I don't need headspace. I am a Black man in America. Nothing in that article can equal the slings and arrows of racism we experience collectively. But it loads slow, and that does trigger me..
