Lots of people with tiny brains getting upset about something they do not understand. Not a single person or object at the scene of the wreck had an expectation of privacy. On public land anyone may photograph or videograph anything they want. I believe those getting upset think the camera is stealing their soul or something similar. The authorities hate photos and video because it tends to hold them accountable for their actions and dumb asses with guns are not used to that idea. The guy did nothing wrong and deserves an apology from all the tiny brained people who said he did do something wrong. Sleazy media is always looking for anything to get people to watch their shows and he did nothing wrong by attempting to sell his footage. It seems some people have a problem with the voyeuristic nature of the act. Those same people who feel that way no doubt are the same ones who slow down to gawk at accidents and back up traffic for miles. In a perfect world a cop would be assigned to pull those gawkers from their vehicle and beat them severely or ticket them until we all learn to mind our own business. In a culture of mediocre malcontent people it is no surprise that this is a news story
Really??? I happen to have screen shots posted on his FB page PRIOR to his so-called apology where this "gentleman" told 'cops, attorneys, haters' etc to 'suck his ...' Yeah...so I'm not sure how much his attorney paid them to write this article, but it's clearly an attempt to correct the damage that's already been done to his public image. #stillpathetic
You know how sometimes you hear someone who just seems to have an answer for everything, and you kind of make a face when you hear all of it and think "BS" to yourself? Yeah, that's what I'm feeling here. I absolutely think he got caught up in the court of public opinion and that is driving a lot of this, but of all the people at the scene he was the only one who decided to "check the backseat" or whatever other "good Samaritan" type of stuff he was trying to do. I doubt the police did this to him in retaliation for filming them removing someone from the car. If you're not a first responder and you have no aid to provide, stay out of the way. Otherwise, things like this happen.
In this 24/7/365 life in Reality TV proves one thing --- the worst traits of humankind are the new norm.
Appreciate the person-first language. Nice article.
Really? It doesn't look like the officers "dropped" him. Perhaps Scene should contact the victim's family to hear what they have to say.
Pastor Paul is a fake. Not sure if he did anything sexual to that girl but i do know that his ministry has gotten him a million dollar house and a membership to a nice country club where i worked and witnessed him scolding little children at the dinner table telling them that they couldn't be friends with the kids from their school. That they were only allowed to be friends with the kids at church. The man was always rude and seemed unable to retrieve the stick that was planned in his rear end. I would say to the "CHURCH ON THE RISE" to search for a church that has a pastor that resembles jesus more than ponches pilot!
Thank you to anonymous!!!!! I agree whole heartedly!!!And now another man was killed with his same name. He should be freaking proud! Piece of ##it moth## ##cker! Now he's ruining tons of other people's lives who were arrested for the murder, who are innocent!!!!! Makes me want to puke.
It's clear Len Jordan stole the money. No one can be paid if someone ran off with the cash. It isn't anyones fault specifically for someone doing that. You just have to go through the proper channels to recover it, which in this case it was court. Everyone will get taken care of once the money gets recovered. This article is non-sense and tries to put blame on everyone when it specifically states Len Jordan stole the money...Everyone got paid last year..Len Jordan gets involved this year and the money is stolen..it's a simple concept.
I read this story from time to time as it still persists in Google. It's well written and insightful. Certainly I don't agree with its premise, especially when the good in the story cannot overrule that title. Why couldn't it be something like: "A New American Entrepreneur: The Business of Building a Business is Not Always Pretty." I just love our beloved late Chorbishop Khachan's comment: "I want to be fair to her. Nobody is asking them to go to see her. Many times I give the names of other lawyers. They wind up [at Wong's office]." It's so true. We charge what we charge, and you get what you pay for.
Everyone is pointing the finger at Kels, but it sounds to me like the whole EST gang did their jobs and got screwed out of their money also. This Leonard Jordan is the real scum bag. Kels put on a HELL OF A SHOW that night, one I will never forget, and they deserve to be paid for that too. I know it has taken alot longer than expected, but I know deep down EST is so much more than this, and K WILL find a way to make all of this right! Maybe it's the reason he has added so many dates to his tour?
Machine Gun Kelly is innocent in the disappearance of the ESTfest money. . . . Len Jordan is the culprit here, the villain. The one who ran off with the money. . . and all attempts to recoup that cash are the hardest challenges faced.
The silver lining to this shitstorm is there is now a platform for a hero to step up.
MGK should be that hero.
Kells Mgk Baker should step up and proclaim to the city that although he was not at fault for these wrongs, he will make them right.
What much matters when gear sits on a shelf unpaid? Nothing compared to when the PEOPLE, who by their own endurance, dedication and muscle, worked hours on-end and are still waiting for their hard-earned money. . . . The hardships these people faced since then are extraordinary. Evictions. Medical bills, etc.
.It wasn't Leonard Jordan Fest, or HereYourTickets Fest, or Nelson Ledges Fest.... It Was MGK's EST Fest... It really was the year of the circus. MGK should throw a benefit concert to pay the Cleveland people who are still owed for their arduous labor and skill on behalf of EST fest.
There is an MGK show coming up here soon downtown at the Agora. How convenient?
As it was headlined years ago, "MGK HAS CLEVELAND's BACK"
This is a perfect opportunity to PROVE that. LACE UP MGK, and do what makes things right!!
Why anyone would get involved with this untalented MGK hack is a mystery. He's awful!
Look up Len Jordan on Facebook...
Truly a disgusting person. It's sad that he kept getting away without the jail time he deserves because he is a snitch. Hopefully, his past will catch up to him very soon.
My brother and I ran a sound and lighting company together. We were one of the many companies that got ripped off that weekend. It was the straw that broke the camels back for us. We had to quit the dream and get real jobs...
This story was a real good read. I was never able to get a straight answer from anyone on what had happened, but it seems like it shifts the blame away from the parties truly responsible. Everyone knew exactly who they were working for that weekend. MGK and Company...It was quite clear to everyone that it was "their" festival. I have worked at that venue, with the same crews, same promoters, same staff, several times and never had any problems.... The only thing that was different was that it was MGK, and the money being offered was a little better than usual.....It wasn't Leonard Jordan Fest, or HereYourTickets Fest, or Nelson Ledges Fest.... It Was MGK's EST Fest... It really was the year of the circus.... Thanks for that home town love Kells.
It reads like a Ponzi scheme -- where the honest people who were necessary to make the event a success before and after the gates opened will receive next to nothing.....and the bumbling idiots who created the mess through incompetence, laziness or other reasons are still stumbling around, scratching their backsides and mumbling tired excuses.
My band played EST fest 2014 and also recieved no payment whatsoever, and it was my understanding that most the other acts didn't get paid as well (save for the national headliners).
Growing up in public has unfortunately become a major industry in the 24/7/365 Reality TV of sports-entertainment pop culture.
Huh? What was the problem with this piece exactly? I enjoyed the write-up on Cardale, and thought this was well worth my time. It's always nice to learn a little bit more about the behind the scenes stuff that you don't always hear about, and I heard new things in this article that I previously hadn't been aware of before.
Good luck to Cardale, and good luck to the Bucks. Here's to this year!
