Warren, Michigan – On Thursday, WXYZ dot com reported that Warren Police Officer Bernadette Najor has been fired from the department after it was learned that she brutally chopped the hair weaves of a woman in custody while other officers just watched. On November 13, Charda Gregory, 22, was arrested after she allegedly trashed a room at the Suez Motel on 8 Mile in Warren. Gregory says, she went to a party in Detroit and believed that she was drugged and then woke up at the hotel.
Police arrested Gregory for trashing the room and was sprayed with pepper gas. When she arrived at the booking area, Officer Najor can be seen shoving Gregory into a bench and then officers restrained her in a chair. In a video released by police, Officer Najor begins to chop Gregory’s hair weaves with scissors and yanks the hair from the roots causing damage and bald spots.
The officers later told their supervisors what had happened, but didn’t attempt to stop Najor from abusing Gregory. Officer Najor never filed a report of what had happened. She later claimed that Gregory wanted to commit suicide, so she cut her weaves. Investigators didn’t believe Officer Najor who was suspended at first, but was later terminated as a result of an internal investigation.
Najor was previously disciplined for lying, according to WXYZ dot com.
All charges against Gregory have been dropped.

Hoaxter Rick Dyer Released Video Of Alleged Farce Bigfoot

Dyer has admitted in previous times that Bigfoot does not exist and has made lots of money by pulling a hoax.

Las Vegas, Nevada – On Friday, hoaxter Rick Dyer, a self-proclaimed Bigfoot hunter and tracker has released a video of an enclosed Bigfoot specimen. The short YouTube video scans through the enclosed case and a specimen can be seen inside.
Dyer has been under pressure to provide scientific evidence that his alleged kills are actually Bigfoots. No scientific data or DNA testing has been released by Dyer. He probably, will never release any certified data.
Dyer wants people to pay to view a specimen that he says is the real Bigfoot. But, his prior record of pulling a hoax to make money from Bigfoot hungry believers has become real profitable for Dyer. Pulling another hoax to make money and gain notoriety is Dyer’s goal. Publicity has become the main campaign for Dyer to bring in the cash by luring myth believers to see his specimen, according to Dyer.
In previous audio recordings circulating the Internet, Dyer admitted that he had pulled a hoax in 2008 and made a ton of money from people wanting to believe that Bigfoot exists. But, Dyer admitted that Bigfoot doesn’t exist and he just wants to make money from those who need to believe, Bigfoot is real.
So far, Dyer has admitted to finding a Bigfoot body in 2008 and some “Men in Black” stole it or confiscated the specimen. It was his first hoax, according to Dyer. Today, he admits to bagging two Bigfoots, one in Texas and the other at an unknown location.
Apparently, Dyer cancelled a Bigfoot February press conference citing that scientists who examined his specimen weren’t available.

Milwaukee County Seniority Will No Longer Be Key Factor For County-wide Bumping During Layoffs

New proposed Milwaukee County employee rules under Civil Service Rules could cut about 170 employees seniority, but will increase seniority for 330 of 500 affected.

By H. Nelson Goodson
January 30, 2014

Milwaukee, WI – On Wednesday, Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele sent out an e-mail to all County workers about proposed changes on seniority, County-wide layoff considerations, employment protection and reimbursement for work related expenses for non-County Safety workers. Abele in the e-mail wrote, “Unfortunately some of these potential changes in the proposal have been misrepresented and I want to take the opportunity to clearly lay out what these changes would do. These changes preserve employment protections for employees, and preserve other important provisions such as sick pay, shift differential, number of vacation days and pension and health benefits. Accrued seniority will be maintained, however would be considered on a County-wide basis. The proposal also continues important provisions such as reimbursement for work related expenses like seminars, license fees, and continuing education. Most importantly, the proposal does not take away any civil service or legal rights.”
Since under the Governor Scott Walker (R) 2011 Act 10 law, County employees no longer can use a union for bargaining wage differences, but have to file grievances with the Department of Human Resources (DHR) who have recommended changes in some areas in its Crosswalk report. Seniority will no longer be used as a basis to bump another employee on a County-wide basis, except within a classification and department facing a layoff, which eliminates the placement provision, according to Abele and the DHR Crosswalk memo proposal.
The new proposal for some Milwaukee County employees under the Civil Service Rules could actually result in the elimination of seniority of about 170 employees, but will increase seniority for 330 of 500 employees that will be affected. Those part time employees facing seniority cuts will maintain their straight earned hours, since they were hired.
The Crosswalk proposal doesn’t eliminate the current differences in pay wage inequality, which some County employees with less seniority make more than those with more seniority and college degrees in some departments.
County employees will now have to get permission before they engage in extra work related expenses due to the availability of funds for reimbursements.
Abele says, “Over the last six months, HR held nine meetings to ensure open and informative exchanges with the representatives of the collective bargaining units. As a result of these conversations, HR is proposing changes that will create a more uniform workplace for all employees, while preserving provisions that are unique to certain classes of employees. These changes clear up the current system where co-workers might have different rules, based simply on when, where and how they were hired. The details of these changes are reflected in what has been called ‘the crosswalk’.
“The proposed changes would also standardize the employee grievance system, while still giving employees appropriate opportunities to grieve discipline. The changes also get rid of outdated rules that are burdensome for employees and no longer followed, but remain in the County’s Ordinances. Amongst other results, these changes would reduce the wait time for hearing grievances and would give employees a direct line to HR representatives to address workplace issues,” Abele wrote in the e-mail.
Abele wants the County Board to approve the proposed changes detailed in the Crosswalk report by next month.
