BOSTON (CBS) – Organizers of what they’ve dubbed a “Straight Pride” parade say they will be receiving a license from the City of Boston to hold the event on August 31.
Organizers held a press conference on Wednesday outside of City Hall after their public event application was approved. The parade is being put together by a group calling itself “Super Happy Fun America.”
John Hugo said he has been told the group will be able to hold the event on August 31.
Boston Mayor Marty Walsh previously said he could not deny the group based on their values. Walsh will not attend the straight pride parade.
“Permits to host a public event are granted based on operational feasibility, not based on values or endorsements of beliefs. The City of Boston cannot deny a permit based on an organization’s values,” the mayor said earlier this month.
The group initially requested to raise the “straight pride flag” on City Hall flag polls. This request was denied as city officials said they have sole discretion on what flags fly outside City Hall.
Hugo said Wednesday that Milo Yiannopoulos, a political commentator whose events have regularly been met by protesters, will be the parade’s grand marshal.
“We want people to be aware that there is not only one side of things. There’s a lot of people that are uncomfortable with a lot of things that are going on in our country and they’re afraid to speak up,” Hugo said in a previous interview with WBZ-TV.
Having Milo as grand marshal though is like how the video below doesn’t go with the great lyrics:
Ah well. I guess the point is to troll and trigger, and it sure will! 🙂
An Alabama woman who suffered a miscarriage after being shot last year has been indicted for manslaughter in the loss of the fetus.
Marshae Jones was five months pregnant in December 2018 when, during a fight, Ebony Jemison shot her in the stomach —
but a Jefferson County grand jury said the former mom-to-be was responsible because she started the brawl, AL.com reported.
“Let’s not lose sight that the unborn baby is the victim here,’’ said Pleasant Grove Police Lt. Danny Reid.
Initially, police charged Jemison, 23, with manslaughter but the charges were dismissed when a grand jury didn’t indict her.
Even though Jones didn’t fire the shots that killed her unborn baby girl, authorities said she caused the death by initiating the fight.
“It was the mother of the child who initiated and continued the fight which resulted in the death of her own unborn baby,” Reid said.
“[The fetus] had no choice in being brought unnecessarily into a fight where she was relying on her mother for protection.”
Cops said the fight was about the unborn baby’s father.
Jones was taken into custody Wednesday. She will be transferred to Jefferson County Jail and held on $50,000 bond.
A life was lost because of the mother’s irresponsible behaviour.
Too bad they couldn’t also charge the other woman, too, though.
But a great precedent has been set!
