Virginia TV Reporter, Cameraman Shot Dead During Live Broadcast

Virginia Reporter Shot Dead

A Roanoke, Va.-area TV news reporter and her cameraman were both shot dead by an unknown gunman during a Wednesday-morning segment, as it was being broadcast live.

Around 6:45 am, WDBJ-7’s Alison Parker, 24, with cameraman Adam Ward, 27, was reporting for the CBS affiliate from Bridgewater Plaza in Moneta, Va., when a shooter, believed to be male, approached and fired at least a half dozen shots, hitting Parker, Ward and at least one other person.

Shortly thereafter, WDBJ president and GM Jeffrey A. Marks went on air to report that both Parker and Ward had died from their injuries. “Our hearts are broken,” he said. “[We’re] holding back tears.” (

Sometimes I have to take a step back when I read reports like this and actually write about them. Take away the humor I usually use and actually write something meaningful, at least attempt to anyway.

Innocent lives are taken every single day but usually we just turn our heads to it. We hear about a child dying and in that moment we feel sad, then we keep on with out day. Today two innocent people were killed on live television while they were doing a job that they loved. A gunman went right up to them without any problem and shot them. He wanted to make a statement and it has been made. If you murder two people, and shoot a third person you want to make a statement. The world is a scary place and all you can do is pray that you are surrounded by some of the good people.You can’t let yourself be afraid but you also have to stay aware of your surroundings. This world is a very messed up place, that is all I can say.

Of course this won’t happy but I hope that people don’t release the footage, of course it was live and I am sure a lot of people saw it happen live but let these two people rest in peace. They were killed over nothing, there was nothing that they did wrong in order to make this happen.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of their family members, friends, and colleges that are dealing with such a tremendous loss that wasn’t needed.

Maybe it is time to finally start getting more serious about gun laws in this country. How many innocent people have to die until there is a change? How many shootings do we have to hear about? How many people have to lose their loved ones? It’s time to make a change on gun policies in this country.

Breaking news! Chris Brown is still a piece of shit!


Chris Brown was booted from his rehab program earlier this month for throwing a rock through his mom’s car window … TMZ has learned.
We just got hold of the probation report in the Rihanna case, which outlines what happened during his 13 days in a Malibu rehab joint for anger management counseling.
According to the report, Chris’ mom showed up for a family session and was urging her son to stay in the facility for extended treatment.  Apparently, Chris violently disagreed with her and in a fit of anger threw a rock through her car window, shattering it.
The report goes on to say without continued therapy and a strong recovery support network, Probation says his prognosis is “very guarded.”
And here’s an interesting detail from the report: before Chris entered rehab on October 29th, he says he had issues with Attention Deficit Disorder and also underwent a period of depression.
TMZ broke the story … Chris got booted from the Malibu facility earlier this month following the outburst … after just two weeks of treatment.
As we reported, the judge has just ordered Brown to 90 days in a facility and also ordered him to submit to drug testing.

When is this asshole going to be in prison? I am seriously asking this question right now. Chris Brown is a certified piece of shit. I think that 90% of people would agree with me on this one. I don’t care if you like his music but him personally, he is a piece of shit. Let’s be real here. He threw a fucking rock through his mother’s car window. He clearly has a lot of screws loose up in that big ol head of his. I am just saying that this piece of shit should be in jail for 90 days rather than a rehab. I guess we will see if a thug can change his tattoos after rehab but I don’t think so. I am waiting for a tweet about how he is going to do his best, only to probably go back on that. Chris Brown is just not a good human. I hope that he never makes another album and just goes back to Virginia where he can live his life.
Bye bye asshole, I hope you learn something.
