Orville Smith, a store manager for Best Buy in Augusta , Georgia , told police he observed a male customer, later identified as Tyrone Jackson of Augusta , on surveillance cameras putting a laptop computer under his jacket... When confronted the man became irate, knocked down an employee, drew a knife and ran for the door.
Outside on the sidewalk were four Marines collecting toys for the "Toys for Tots" program. Smith said the Marines stopped the man, but he stabbed one of the Marines, Cpl. Phillip Duggan, in the back, the injury did not appear to be severe.
After Police and an ambulance arrived at the scene Cpl. Duggan was transported for treatment. The subject was also transported to the local hospital with two broken arms, a broken ankle, a broken leg, several missing teeth, possible broken ribs, multiple contusions, assorted lacerations, a broken nose and a broken jaw...injuries he sustained when he slipped and fell off of the curb after stabbing the Marine.

There seems to be a lot of people being shady over trading family adds etc for Famp runs. I realize everyone runs their family different, and that is fine. So there is no confusion on how I do it and what I expect I am writing this blog.
Let me get a couple terms cleared up first.....
/ˈpɜrmənənt/ Show Spelled[pur-muh-nuhnt] Show IPA
existing perpetually; everlasting, esp. without significant change.
intended to exist or function for a long, indefinite period without regard to unforeseeable conditions: a permanent employee; the permanent headquarters of the United Nations.
long-lasting or nonfading: permanent pleating; permanent ink.
1. illegitimate. underhanded. dishonorable. corrupt. sneaky.
2. A shady person is someone who does not keep it real; a person who hides out; a person who keeps things to themselves.
My family consists of... REAL friends... Permanent family trade... and Temporary family trades. I make it very clear what you are when added.
1. Real Friends... This is pretty self explanatory, I believe. They are in my family because they are my friends.
2. Permanent family trades... We have agreed to keep each other in our families PERMANENTLY*. I don't or SHOULDN'T have to check to see if I am in your family before I run something. You are in mine regardless. I'm not worried if you run something everyday - because you run an amp or god bling most days of the week. If you aren't going to be online or aren't going to run something for awhile, you let me know. In most cases, it doesn't matter, cause our agreement is PERMANENT Family add. I expect the same in return.
3. Temporary family add.... These adds usually are for one amp run or a certain amount of time... ie., a weekend etc. Usually if someone sends me the amp, buys my points and rates or whatever offer I have posted at the time. You will be removed after our agreed upon deal is over.
How I do family trades...
Usually if you just want to straight rates trade... you in my family, me in yours... I will ask you to add my hubby too. No, he will probably not add you as his family as his is full most of the time. You want my rates, then this is my deal. Yes, I like rates. But if you haven't noticed, I'm not really in the rates race like I was. I help my hubby - and this is one way I do it. If we make this deal and I check your family at any time and see he is removed, then you have broken our agreement and I will remove you.
If my status says something like... "send me a famp and get added to fam for famp run". It is exactly that - you get in my family while I run my next famp. Even if the famp I run is from someone else. You have "paid" for one famp run in my family. I am not expecting to be added to yours.
I will at times have an open spot in my family when I run something. I will either give it to someone that has me in theirs and has ran an amp or God mode giving me some rates or I will offer it to a random person... ie., status will say something like... " First person with no VIP and no ability bling to shout me get in fam for famp run". This add is for the famp run that is active.
What I expect....
If we have a permanent family add - I don't believe I should have to check on you before I run something. I expect that I am in your family until you have told me otherwise. As you will be in mine until I tell you. Simple
If our agreement is that you have added my hubby as well to be in my family, I expect that you keep him in as well. If you remove either one of us, then I expect that you contact me to let me know.
Removing someone from your family without letting them know so you can take their rates while you aren't giving them yours is just plain shady to me. I will not be shady with anyone and I expect the same in return. I keep my deals with people. If you get caught, as several have, I will remove you.. add you to my bitch files if possible, and you will not be allowed back in my family at any point.
I have been here over 4 years... I'm very well known. If I was shady at all, in anyway, it would be known. Trust me, people would LOVE to bust me on some bullshit. You don't hear bullshit about me, because that just isnt who I am. I help who I can when I can. I keep my word to people. I expect the same.
I'm NOT promising I will run something everyday. I have been lately, but that isn't a promise. I do plan on running something most days of the week. If a point comes where I dont foresee me running anything for awhile - I will make that known to all.
Personally, I don't believe it is the best deal for me, unless I'm not going to be around. It lasts about 30 hours for me. During which time I cant "like" anyone, polish anyone's bling etc. Rates don't reset except with a new day. I get more rates from running a famp/boomerang. If I run a famp/boomerang in the evening - then my rates have reset and I end up getting more rates then if I ahve ran a God mode all day. For some people a God bling is the better bet. It isn't for me, if I am going to be around. Some people are all about God bling fam trades. That's fine. But I think you need to weigh who it is and if it is going to work out best.
I hope this clears up what I expect and how I run MY family.
Thank you so much,
PS - Being shady or pulling some bullshit on my hubby, is just like doing it to me. We are very easy to get along with people. (Granted he is nicer than I am.) If you have to remove one of us or both, simply let us know. If you try to be slick and remove one of us or both, still take our rates while not sharing yours... we will find out.
Just for those of you that dont know... the "See Who Has Me In Their Family" page lists people by who has added you most recently. This is how most of you shady mofo's are getting caught.
Yeah, I was bored.. Ryot and I have come up with this stuff.. and we know we are missing a lot. There have been tons of changes and for the most part all good. The yellows work their asses off to bring us those changes. Be sure to stop by and thank them.
Leave a comment on some stuff we forgot and I will add it.
This is a spur of the moment idea - so this blog sucks... deal with it!
I need a new skin for my page. I cant do them... So here is my lil contest.....
Make me a skin... I will get a SS of it on my page and upload it into a contest album... The one with the most votes wins... pretty simple.
A few hints...
make it have something to do with me DUH! You should know a lil about me by now. If not, scan my pix and read my page. There is tons of info on me.
I HATE flashy/blinky shit. Not trying to cause a seizure.
Dont shout me or PM me asking me tons of questions. This will just annoy me. NOT GOOD.
Favorite colors... green, purple, blue, pink.. but most of all it has to look good without being overwhelming.
Im not so into myself that I want pix of me as my skin.
Winner will receive a boomerang, my points for 12 hours and your skin on my page.
Winner is determined by the skin with the most rates. If there happens to be a tie in rates, then comments will be the tie breaker.
Also, you may enter as many skins as you want.
When the contest starts, all submitted skins will be turned on. So people will see them and can preview them.
Deadline for submission is August 7th.
Thank you so much! And please share for me.
Some of you may have noticed I am not around much the last few months. So I am writing this to explain it once, instead of over and over to those that are asking.
To be honest, I am a bit bored with fu. Don't get me wrong, I love fu. But I am not into it like I use to be. I have been here since it was LostCherry.com. When there were no VIPs - no Bling - no Happy Hours. You could only rate a profile once in a lifetime. We did contests for Big Pimping gifts! LOL Yes, things have changed. And for the most part, I have to say for the better.
I have made some great friends on here. Too many to mention. From people who I met my first week on here, to recently made friends. From admin to bouncers to your average fu. Amazing people! And I would like to thank you guys for making fu so much fun for me.
Some of you like me, some of you hate me. LOL That is just the way it goes. But VERY few of you actually know me. Thank you to the ones that have taken the time to look past what people say and spent the time to get to know me. You know who you are, and we will be friends forever.
I am NOT leaving. I am just not into the whole game of fu much anymore. This may change. You know we all go through times like this with fu.
I have done a lot to promote this site. Helped whenever I could... doing salutes for promotions, gave my opinion to admin (sometimes when they didnt even want to hear it.) I have brought in over 1770 people on referrals alone. I love this site and I love Mike (babyj).
I would like to thank Mike for dealing with me, for being my friend and being so good to me. Trust me this man has listened to me bitch, and he didnt have to. He could have just deleted me and been done with it. I appreciate your friendship and the fact that you have dealt with me so long and have gone above and beyond to be fair with me.
I have never cheated anyone or lied to them. I have never shouted anyone and asked them to buy me anything. I have never done a cam show or called anyone just to get something on fu. Everything I have gotten was either a business transaction... ie... they wanted fubucks for a bling pack/blast etc.. they wanted access to my pics and gave me something for that. There have been VERY FEW and I mean that honestly, very few people on here have given me something just to be nice.... without expecting anything in return. So those rumors that go around that I use people... just rumors. But believe what you want.
Regardless, of how you feel about me.... most of you cant remember fu without me. Good or bad - that is the way it is. LOL I am the best player in the game of fu. I am on more lists, top ranked, thank any other fu EVER.
For the past few months the only reason, I really log on is to play fuMafia. And now that is getting a bit boring as well. At the level I am at - you are pretty much at a stalemate with everyone else around you. They are changing it to where skill means nothing and referrals are what will make you strong. I am sorry, I have brought in enough people to this site. And if that isnt appreciated.... if they STILL want more from me... then you guys can come kick my mafia ass. Cause I will not do it. The game should be about skill. Not about how many people you can get to make a profile - and the majority of them will never play. I have spent literally $1000's of dollars in bling credits on fuMafia alone... on my player but mostly giving favors to others. I will not delete my player - cause I love my mafia family. My turf has some of the best people in and out of the game - and I enjoy chatting with them.
ALL questions, concerns and comments I have had about mafia have gone unanswered. Regardless, as to whether they were addressed in shouts or the blog. Meanwhile, whenever they have a question for me, I am always there to give my opinion. I don't know if this is cause fu is growing or if it is just the way the mafia admin deals with things. This is not how I am use to fu being. One of the things that has set fu apart from other sites, is they actually have listened to what its members have to say. And they have made changes accordingly sometimes. Not always, BUT they have always listened.
So, in closing - I am NOT leaving. I am just not around as much as I use to be. I am not concerned about ranks. The fun isnt there as it was before. This may pass. And I could be back, playing as I use to. But for right now, I guess I am taking a fubreak. LOL If you want to find me... if I am here, I will be chatting in my turf.
I wish all of you the best New Year ever!
PS - Please dont think this is cause some people run their mouths. If you know me at all - you know I have never taken anything said about me on fu seriously. The people who like to talk shit or whatever - are funny to me. Almost from day one here people have talked about me. It has NEVER affected me. When someone doesnt know you, their opinion about you - means nothing. I love this site and the people on it. I am just a bit bored... that is all.
I need to start with a 60 year old quote that is so relevant today that it is almost eerie.
"I fear that all I have done is awakened a sleeping giant
and filled him with a terrible resolve."
--Admiral Yamamoto after the Pearl Harbor attack, December 7, 1941
"Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror. The pictures of airplanes flying into buildings, fires burning, huge structures collapsing, have filled us with disbelief, terrible sadness and a quiet, unyielding anger.
--George W. Bush
What's the sense of sending $2 million missiles to hit a $10 tent that's empty?
--George W. Bush, private Oval Office meeting, September 13, 2001
War has been waged against us by stealth and deceit and murder. This nation is peaceful, but fierce when stirred to anger. This conflict was begun on the timing and terms of others. It will end in a way, and at an hour, of our choosing.
--George W. Bush, Speech at National Cathedral, September 14, 2001
How do I respond when I see that in some Islamic countries there is vitriolic hatred for America? I'll tell you how I respond: I'm amazed. I'm amazed that there is such misunderstanding of what our country is about, that people would hate us. I am, I am -- like most Americans, I just can't believe it. Because I know how good we are, and we've go to do a better job of making our case. We've got to do a better job of explaining to the people in the Middle East, for example, that we don't fight a war against Islam or Muslims. We don't hold any religion accountable. We're fighting evil. And these murderers have hijacked a great religion in order to justify their evil deeds. And we cannot let it stand.
--George W. Bush, press conference
It will not be quick and it will not be easy. Our adversaries are not one or two terrorist leaders, or even a single terrorist organization or network. It's a broad network of individuals and organizations that are determined to terrorize and, in so doing, to deny us the very essence of what we are: free people. They don't live in Antarctica. They work, they train and they plan in countries. They're benefiting from the support of governments. They're benefiting from the support of non-governmental organizations that are either actively supporting them with money, intelligence and weapons or allowing them to function on their territory and tolerating if not encouraging their activities. In either case, it has to stop.
We'll have to deal with the networks. One of the ways to do that is to drain the swamp they live in. And that means dealing not only with the terrorists, but those who harbor terrorists. This will take a long, sustained effort. It will require the support of the American people as well as our friends and allies around the world.
--Donald Rumsfeld, Press Briefing, September 18, 2001
As the representatives of the people we are here to declare that our resolve has not been weakened by these horrific and cowardly acts.
--Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle
We're going to find out who did this and we're going after the bastards.
--Sen. Orrin Hatch
"I fully support President Bush's decision to strike Al Qaeda's terrorist network. Now more than ever, we must stand united as a nation and support our President and our military. It is important to remember that this carefully targeted response is not an attack on a religion, nor a nation, but an attack on terrorism. In Congress, we will continue to work with the White House to do what's needed to bring justice to those who committed the heinous and evil attacks of September 11."
"The planes were hijacked, the buildings fell, and thousands of lives were lost nearly a thousand miles from here. But the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were an attack on the heart of America.
And standing here in the heartland of America, we say in one voice �
We will not give in to terrorists;
We will not rest until they are found and defeated;
We will win this struggle � not for glory, nor wealth, nor power, but for justice, for freedom, and for peace;
So help us God."
"You can be sure that the American spirit will prevail over this tragedy."
A few months ago, and again this week, bin Laden publicly vowed to publicly wage a terrorist war against America, saying, and I quote, "We do not differentiate between those dressed in military uniforms and civilians. They're all targets." Their mission is murder, and their history is bloody.
--then President Bill Clinton
"All of a sudden there were people screaming. I saw people jumping out of the building. Their arms were flailing. I stopped taking pictures and started crying."
--Michael Walters, a free-lance photo journalist in Manhattan.
"The city is going to survive, we are going to get through it, It's going to be very, very difficult time. I don't think we yet know the pain that we're going to feel when we find out who we lost, but the thing we have to focus on now is getting this city through this, and surviving and being stronger for it."
The full horror of what has happened in the United States earlier today is now becoming clearer. It is hard even to contemplate the utter carnage and terror which has engulfed so many innocent people. We've offered President Bush and the American people our solidarity, our profound sympathy, and our prayers. But it is plain that citizens of many countries round the world, including Britain, will have been caught up in this terror.
--British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Interview, September 11, 2001.
So what do we do?
Don't overreact some say. We aren't.
We haven't lashed out. No missiles on the first night just for effect.
Don't kill innocent people. We are not the ones who waged war on the innocent. We seek the guilty.
Look for a diplomatic solution. There is no diplomacy with Bin Laden or the Taliban regime.
State an ultimatum and get their response. We stated the ultimatum; they haven't responded.
Understand the causes of terror. Yes, we should try, but let there be no moral ambiguity about this: nothing could ever justify the events of 11 September, and it is to turn justice on its head to pretend it could.
The action we take will be proportionate; targeted; we will do all we humanly can to avoid civilian casualties. But understand what we are dealing with. Listen to the calls of those passengers on the planes. Think of the children on them, told they were going to die.
Think of the cruelty beyond our comprehension as amongst the screams and the anguish of the innocent, those hijackers drove at full throttle planes laden with fuel into buildings where tens of thousands worked.
They have no moral inhibition on the slaughter of the innocent. If they could have murdered not 7,000 but 70,000 does anyone doubt they would have done so and rejoiced in it?
There is no compromise possible with such people, no meeting of minds, no point of understanding with such terror.
Just a choice: defeat it or be defeated by it. And defeat it we must.
--British Prime Minister Tony Blair
Any action taken will be against the terrorist network of Bin Laden.... As for the Taleban, they can surrender the terrorists or face the consequences - and again in any action the aim will be to eliminate their military hardware, cut off their finances, disrupt their supplies, target their troops, not civilians.
--British Prime Minister Tony Blair
We will put a trap around the regime and I say to the Taleban: Surrender the terrorists or surrender power. It's your choice.
--British Prime Minister Tony Blair
America has its faults as a society, as we have ours.
But I think of the Union of America born out of the defeat of slavery.
I think of its Constitution, with its inalienable rights granted to every citizen still a model for the world.
I think of a black man, born in poverty, who became chief of their armed forces and is now secretary of state Colin Powell and I wonder frankly whether such a thing could have happened here.
I think of the Statue of Liberty and how many refugees, migrants and the impoverished passed its light and felt that if not for them, for their children, a new world could indeed be theirs.
I think of a country where people who do well, don't have questions asked about their accent, their class, their beginnings but have admiration for what they have done and the success they've achieved.
I think of those New Yorkers I met, still in shock, but resolute; the fire fighters and police, mourning their comrades but still head held high.
--British Prime Minister Tony Blair
As for those that carried out these attacks there are no adequate words of condemnation. Their barbarism will stand as their shame for all eternity.
--British Prime Minister Tony Blair
It is with enormous distress that France has just learned of the monstrous attacks�there is no other word for it�that have just struck the United States of America. In these horrifying circumstances, the entire people of France, and I want to emphasize this, stand by the people of America. They express their friendship and solidarity in this tragedy. Naturally, I want to assure President Bush of my total support. France, as you know, has always condemned and unreservedly condemns terrorism, and considers that terrorism must be combated by all possible means.
--French President Jacques Chirac, September 11, 2001.
It was with horror that I learned of the abominable terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington in which so many innocent people have lost their lives. My government staunchly condemns these acts of terrorism. The German people are at the side of the United States of America in this difficult hour. I wish to express my deep-felt condolences and complete solidarity to you and the American people. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families.
--German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, September 11, 2001.
I was stricken by news and television pictures coming from the United States this morning. It is impossible to fully comprehend the evil that would have conjured up such a cowardly and depraved assault upon thousands of innocent people. There can be no cause or grievance that could ever justify such unspeakable violence. Indeed, such an attack is an assault not only on the targets but an offense against the freedom and rights of all civilized nations.
--Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chr�tien , September 11, 2001.
This morning we were notified about the horrible news of the series of terrorist attacks in the United States, that have left a great trail of destruction. Mexico expresses its condolences to the Government and the American people for the irreparable human losses. We also express our energetic condemnation to these attacks. I have informed President George Bush of our feelings of sorrow and our solidarity in such difficult moments.
--Mexican President Vicente Fox, , September 11, 2001.
Shocked to learn of the serious attacks against certain areas in New York City and Washington D.C. on September 11, which caused horrendous casualty, I wish to express, on behalf of the Chinese Government and people, our deepest sympathy and solicitude to you and, through you, to the Government and people of the United States. I wish also to extend our condolences to the families of the victims. The Chinese Government has consistently condemned and rejected all forms of terrorist violence.
--Chinese President Jiang Zemin, September 11, 2001.
The United States today faced an unprecedented act of aggression on the part of international terrorism. First of all, I express sincere and profound condolences to all the victims and the families of the dead. The event that occurred in the US today goes beyond national borders. It is a brazen challenge to the whole humanity, at least to civilized humanity. And what happened today is added proof of the relevance of the Russian proposal to pool the efforts of the international community in the struggle against terrorism, that plague of the 21st century. Russia knows at first hand what terrorism is. So, we understand as well as anyone the feelings of the American people. Addressing the people of the United States on behalf of Russia I would like to say that we are with you, we entirely and fully share and experience your pain. We support you.
--Russian President Valdimir Putin, September 12, 2001.
We take it so close to heart because we all know what it is. Points of contention between the United States and Russia seem like minor disputes between neighbors that fade in the face of such great sorrow, which unites people.
--Valentina Nikitina, Russian economist
The whole international community will be united in condemning what they have done.
--Nato Secretary General Lord Robertson
Our eventual aim is simply stated - that there should be no safe haven for terrorists anywhere in the world. We say to the people of Afghanistan: 'You have been ill served by those who have made your country a centre for terrorism across the world. As soon as this stops, the world will work with you to build a better future for you and for your children.
--Jack Straw, British foreign secretary
The cause of the attack was not American foreign policy but an amoral disregard for human life.It is grotesque to suggest that a four-year-old girl, making her first and only flight in an aeroplane, should somehow bear responsibility for the actions of a government for whom she was never allowed the chance to grow up and vote either for or against.
--Menzies Campbell, British Liberal Democrat foreign affairs spokesman
