The painting was reported to have been ripped, however the gallery has not

Comments:

I'd assess that art masterwork at around 20 cents. For his part, art renovator Shakeel (an Olde English name if ever there was one) says he dindu nuffin.

From the thug's name, it sounds like yet another reward reaped from Diversity. How long, Oh Lord, must we put up with this? Who has the guts to lay a sensible crack down, both in Europe and the U.S.?

Shakeel is probably a Shiite, not a Sunni. Thanks, OP.

He will probably get more jail time for harming art in London than if he had murdered a real woman.

They come in hordes, they contribute nothing, they hate our art, they hate our society, they hate everything about us, but still, we stupid people, welcome them and 'hope' they will take up our ways...useless pandering to barbarians who have never created a library, or a hospital or anything good, but they do build mosques, towering into the sky, so they can shout their incredibly noxious noise all over the neighborhood...send them back, each and every one, to whence they came...

Two thoughts: 1) The person who would pay $20,000,000 for that 'art' is the same idiot who would pay $120,000 for the banana duct-taped to a wall. that we all read about, something like a month ago. (Yes, the same banana that some guy tore off the wall and ATE!) What some people think is 'art'.... and who are ready to spend immense amounts of -typically OTHER people's money- to purchase..... is either crazy, stupid, or some combination of the two. 2) If I painted an image like that and told my wife that it was a painting of HER...... I would have to leave the house immediately, and NEVER return, as she would probably KILL me..... and rightly so!

Philadelphia’s 120-year-old New Year’s Day Mummers Parade has recently birthed a new annual tradition, one that takes place the day after: Every Jan. 2, city leaders unite to denounce offensive performances in the parade. This year’s controversy, sparked by marchers with the Froggy Carr Wench Brigade wearing black face paint, has led to calls for a lasting solution to emerge from the annual outrage. The controversy also resulted in quick response by the Mummers to the allegations.(Snip) But it’s unclear what more can be done to prevent future incidents of blackface or other offensive performances.

New Jersey will provide $9.5 million more in state taxpayer money to Planned Parenthood and other women’s health clinics to make up for federal funding they forfeited in opposition to a controversial abortion rule from President Donald Trump’s administration. Gov. Phil Murphy on Thursday signed a bill into law that immediately allocates the funding for the current fiscal year—which he said will help clinics across the state provide health and family-planning services for tens of thousands of New Jerseyans who use them. Last summer, Trump’s administration introduced a rule barring clinics that receive federal aid from telling patients where they can get an abortion.

Three brutes threatened to shoot a Jewish man in Brooklyn on New Year’s Eve in a troubling daylight attack—yelling, “Jew Hitler burned you, I’ll shoot you,” police sources said Thursday. The apparent hate crime is at least the 13th reported anti-Semitic attack in Gotham since Dec. 24 and follows a slew of troubling assaults which have left authorities grasping for answers and New York’s Jewish community reeling. The 66-year-old victim of Tuesday’s assault was approached by three men at the intersection of S 4th and Keap Streets in Williamsburg at 3.58 p.m. on Tuesday, the source said.

Dramatic body camera footage has revealed the moment police in Alabama rescued a woman who had been kidnapped at knife-point, smashed in the face with a tire iron and kept inside a cage in her captor's van. The suspect, Sean E. Sanders, 51, was arrested just moments after the victim was freed from the 1997 Ford Aerostar Cargo van in Brookside on Sunday following a dramatic standoff with police. Authorities were alerted to the brutal kidnapping after a witness saw the woman bleeding from the head and screaming, 'help he's going to kill me', as she was being forced into Sanders' van.

Visitors to Florida’s picturesque Silver Springs state park have been warned that they may encounter an unusual threat: hundreds of wild, herpes-infected monkeys. The monkeys, rhesus macaques, originate from two small groups released into the Silver Springs state park almost 100 years ago by an eccentric boat captain. Their numbers have soared since then, and experts predict there could be 400 roaming the park by 2022.(Snip) It’s not just the risk of herpes infection that troubles scientists. The monkeys are also having a detrimental effect on native wildlife. Anderson found that the monkeys were “major predators” on artificially placed birds’ nests.

The first woman began yelling at the victim before the second woman grabbed his cell phone, broke it in half and threw it to the ground, the source said.

The United Nations has decided to stick it’s corrupt, dictator fluffing nose into U.S. domestic affairs again. This time it’s about Chelsea Manning, formerly named Bradly Manning (he did legally change his name). Manning was serving a long prison sentence for stealing and trafficking in highly classified information about American military and intelligence . He passed it on to Wikileaks, who widely distributed the information. Unlike the DNC emails Wikileaks published, which were purely political in nature and not government documents, what Manning stole put lives in danger.

Socialist blue New York is seeing its locals fleeing to other states and with those kind of losses, someone's congressional seat has got to go. Whose seat is on the block? The Daily Wire has a report: According to pollster Frank Luntz, New York is likely to lose a seat in Congress after the 2020 census and Democrats in the state legislature will have to redraw the state’s Congressional districts as a result. Although there are plenty of places to cut, New York Dems are reportedly eyeing Ocasio-Cortez’s Bronx district for elimination because she’s been out of sync with state-level Democrats who control the process.

Here are some other things you didn't know about Prince Charles: He's the longest waiting heir apparent, and will be the oldest British monarch to ever take the throne—and it's still uncertain when that will happen.
