And now comes this story from David Gambacarta in one of my hometown papers, the Philadelphia Daily News. See what a false sense of security you NRA apologist can give to folks? Oh stop it field, "guns don't kill people, people do." True, but how come stupid mother fuckers always seem to have guns? Anyway, read this story and tell me what you think:
"It took just a few weeks for Andre Moore to go from YouTube to the slammer.
Members of the state attorney general's Gun Violence Task Force announced Moore's abrupt career change yesterday morning by smashing a battering ram through the door of his West Philadelphia apartment.
The 44-year-old was arrested for calling for the murder of 18th District police officers in a video titled "Dissin' Philly Cops" that he posted on YouTube on June 6, law-enforcement officials said. Moore, who's now been suspended from his job as a security guard at Albert Einstein Medical Center, was less than subtle in his performance.
While waving a gun through the air, Moore said, "I rejoice whenever they shoot a cop in Philadelphia because I hate them," according to a court affidavit containing a transcript of the video.
Later on, he offered instructions on to how to murder cops: "All we need is a Colt .275 to do it. Look, it's easy. You got the chamber, let it go off . . . anywhere in the head or heart . . . continue killing the 18th District police."
The officials said that Moore's 12-year-old son, Andre Jr., filmed the volatile video, and another underage relative held a gun in a second video that Moore posted on YouTube using the screen name "lildre502."
The videos are no longer available on YouTube.
Moore's wife, Tamara, expressed outrage over the incident during a phone interview last night. "I knew nothing about any of this," she said. "Me, my son and our family are very much humiliated by the act Andre did.
"Whatever happens to him, happens. My job is being jeopardized because of this."
Investigators said that District Attorney Lynne Abraham and state Attorney General Tom Corbett became aware of the videos about two weeks ago.
They charged Moore with aggravated assault, corruption of minors, terroristic threats and harassment.
"Obviously, the charges could be challenged in court, but that's out of our hands," said police spokesman Lt. Frank Vanore. "You have rights, but that doesn't mean you can say something like this."
According to court records, Moore was sentenced to five years' probation in 1994 after pleading guilty to charges of simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct stemming from an arrest the previous year.
An Einstein spokesman said last night that he had "no knowledge" of Moore's criminal history. The hospital has suspended Moore, pending further investigation, he said.
Police officials were further irked by the fact that Moore worked at the same hospital where Officer Chuck Cassidy died last November after he was shot interrupting a robbery.
"It's a shame he was able to work in a place where one of our officers was taken," said FOP president John McNesby. "He's scum of the earth, and there's not much more you can say about it than that."
Now my first reaction after reading this story was WTF? You mean to tell me that you can get arrested in A-merry-ca now for making a bad You Tube video? But then, this asshole had his 12 year old son film his I wanna be Al Capone bullshit. So my second reaction was, WTF is wrong with some of these brothers out here? Fam. you live in Philly, you see all the police killings that have been going on lately, and, you are a security guard in a hospital. Are you fucking insane? Ahhh, never mind, don't even answer that question. The article did say that your 12 year old son filmed this bullshit, and antoher underaged relative had a gun in another scene. Yep, you are insane. But hey, you had a gun, and I am sure it was easy enough to get. This is, after all, Pistolvania.
Still, a part of me is a little uneasy with this. I mean Philly's finest surf the web and pick up Andre's bad movie and he is charged with aggravated assault and making terroristic threats? Can you say "Big Brother" folks?
Hell I better watch my black ass then, because Lark just might put a restraining order out on me. Philadelphia Blogger charged with stalking former child star. Hmmmm not a good headline. I might have to cool down on the Lark jones just a little bit.
Andre, you lost your freedom, more than likely your job, and judging from your wife's reaction, maybe even your family as well. All because of your little foray into the film business. I hope it was worth it, but somehow I don't think Hollywood will come calling anytime soon.
