Heat Spell, May 23, 1941

The hot weather last night took Weegee, the photographer, to the Lower East Side, where he found these children sleeping on a tenement fire escape at Irving and Rivington Streets.

Weegee says he gave the kids $2 for ice cream.

But their father took charge of the dough.

Weegee was the pseudonym of Arthur Fellig (June 12, 1899 – December 26, 1968), a photographer and photojournalist, known for his stark black and white street photography.

Weegee worked in the Lower East Side of New York City as a press photographer during the 1930s and ’40s, and he developed his signature style by following the city’s emergency services and documenting their activity. Much of his work depicted unflinchingly realistic scenes of urban life, crime, injury and death. Weegee published photographic books and also worked in cinema, initially making his own short films and later collaborating with film directors such as Jack Donohue and Stanley Kubrick.

FLORIDA – “It was like a firing squad”

Via: Raw Story

State law enforcement officials in Florida are investigating the shooting of a 60-year-old, African-American man INSIDE HIS FRONT YARD by deputies with the sheriff’s office in Escambia County.

“It was like a firing squad,” the victim, Roy Middleton, told the Pensacola News Journal on Saturday. “Bullets were flying everywhere.”

WALA-TV reported that Middleton was shot in the leg, while his mother’s car was hit by at least five bullets.

Middleton told the News Journal that two deputies shot him early Saturday morning when he turned to face them while getting a cigarette out of his mother’s car, saying he was bent over inside the car when he was ordered to “get your hands out where [the shooter] could see them.”

The News Journal reported that a neighbor called authorities after seeing someone reaching into the car, prompting the unidentified deputies to respond to what they thought was a burglary in progress.

The two deputies have been put on paid leave.

Romney CONTINUES to ‘Lie Like a Rug’! (SEE PHOTO)

His infamous 47 percent remarks were taken out of context, Mitt Romney told The Washington Post’s Dan Balz in an interview published Sunday.

Asked about the oft-cited quote that 47 percent of Americans can’t be persuaded to take personal responsibility, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee said, “Actually, I didn’t say that …That’s how it began to be perceived, and so I had to ultimately respond to the perception, because perception is reality.”

At a May 2012 closed-to-the-press fundraiser in Florida, Romney said, “And so my job is not to worry about those people — I’ll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. What I have to do is convince the 5 to 10 percent in the center that are independents, that are thoughtful, that look at voting one way or the other depending upon in some cases emotion, whether they like the guy or not, what it looks like.”

In case you missed it:

“There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what … who are dependent upon government (veterans, seniors, minorities, the poor, . . .), who believe that they are victims. … These are people who pay no income tax. … and so my job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”
