DeSean Jackson shot twice in leg in LA


By Hugh Ediat


NFL free agent wide receiver DeSean Jackson was shot twice in the leg outside a Los Angeles nightclub, according to reports from the Los Angeles Tribune. Jackson is listed as “serious, but stable condition,” at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Doctors say the injuries are non-life threatening.


One other man was also reportedly shot. His condition and identity are being withheld, but reports indicate it is Jackson business partner Val Edate. Sources say the shooting is believed to be gang related. LAPD officials would not comment on motive.


Jackson was released by the Philadelphia Eagles last week. There’s no telling when he’ll be released from Cedars-Sinai.


One witness described the scene.


“We were just hanging around right before midnight on March 31st,” said the witness, who refused to be identified for fear of retribution from the Bloods or Crips, “A few minutes later it’s like bang-bang and DeSean went down. It’s just foolish.”


First responders said Jackson, who was recently alleged to have been part of the West Philly gang that beat up Will Smith, forcing him to seek asylum in Bel Air, had no idea what day it was.


“We asked him if he knew what day it was,” said Noah Joak, an EMT. “He did not know at first.”


However, Jackson became more coherent at the hospital.


“After we got him there he calmed down,” Joak said. “We asked what day it was and he said, ‘Uhh, it’s somewhere between March 31st and April 2nd I think.”


This is breaking news. Check back later for updates to see if we’ve fixed it.

A picture of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad consoling the 78-year-old mother of deceased Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez at his funeral has Iranian holy clerics in an uproar. In this incident he violated the Iranian ban on touching an unrelated woman. This is not the first time Ahmadinejad has offended the Iranian clerics. In fact, it is just the most recent in a long line of serious transgressions. (See story and picture here: )

10 December 2010 – Ahmadinejad ate food at an event hosted by Nelson Mandela. The food itself was acceptable, but consuming the property of an orphan is not. Mandela was raised as a ward of the state.
