It’s been a month since Twitter.com unveiled its new and aggressive policy cracking down on abusive behavior.
“We suck at dealing with abuse and trolls on the platform and we’ve sucked at it for years,” wrote Twitter CEO Dick Costolo in a leaked internal memo obtained by Slate.com.
“We’re going to start kicking these people off right and left and making sure that when they issue their ridiculous attacks, nobody hears them,” Costolo wrote.
The Miami-Dade Police Department love their resident celebrities, especially sports gods like LeBron James. So when LeBron and his lovely fiancée, Savannah, were running late for the Jay Z/Justin Timberlake concert on Friday, the MDPD sent a motorcycle officer to get them to the concert on time.
The unidentified police officer broke all types of police department policies by driving at high speed on the wrong side of the road, with lights flashing and sirens blaring, in a non-emergency situation.
We know all of this because LeBron, like most boys, was excited by the bright, flashing lights. So he filmed a 15-second Instagram video of the action and posted it on Instagram for the world to see.
The caption under the video read “They treat us so well! Needed it cause traffic was nuts!!”

Body cavity searches are normally conducted inside jail holding cells or in prisons — not on a roadside in full view of passing motorists.
