Police Body Cameras Are a Good Start, But Not a Cure-All

Police Body Cameras Are a Good Start, But Not a Cure-All

Last night, Michael Brown’s family renewed the call for all police officers to wear body cameras that record their interactions with people. This is smart, but like every other tool we give the police, cameras will only work the way they’re intended to if the cops don’t abuse them.

Emile Heskey Reveals That He’d Love to Return to Leicester City

Rest assured, Leicester City fans, a saviour could be on the way! 

Former Leicester City man and Internet legend Emile Heskey has revealed that he’d relish a return to the club. 

After all, only Aston Villa and Burnley have scored fewer goals than the Foxes have in the Premier League this season. 

Surely they could use a man who has been capped 62 times for England’s talent to help with their relegation scrap. 

Heskey, 36, hasn’t played since putting in a shift for A-League Newcastle Jets in April. He scored 46 times in 196 games for Leicester while plying his trade for the side between 1994-2000. 

“It goes without saying, I’d love to come,” Heskey told BBC Radio Leicester (h/t Who Ate All The Pies). “It is a great club that allowed me to get to the platform that I got to. 

“I was an England international when I was with Leicester so that was a great achievement.” 

It remains to be seen whether or not he’ll be welcomed back to his former club (they have a spot for a free agent on their squad), but one thing’s for sure, it would make this man very happy.

A.J. Pierzynski Rumors: Latest Buzz and Speculation Surrounding Star Catcher

After breaking into the major leagues in 1998, A.J. Pierzynski has been the player many fanbases and even some teammates have loved to hate. Now we’re waiting to see when or if he’ll be able to continue his MLB career.  

According to Mark Bowman of MLB.com, the Atlanta Braves have expressed interest in Pierzynski:

He split time between the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals in 2014. Just after the Cardinals were eliminated from the postseason, Pierzynski let it be known that he wanted to continue his career.

Per Derrick Goold of The St. Louis Dispatch, the 17-year veteran, who turns 38 in December, said: 

My kids want me to play and my wife wants me to play. It’s hard to walk away. Whether it is to come in and help a young guy out or come in and play every day. It is a tough opportunity to turn down. All my friends … say keep playing as long as you can. They all regret (it) once they walk away.

There’s usually a strong market for a veteran catcher for teams looking for a positive clubhouse presence. Being a left-handed hitter normally helps, which Pierzynski has covered, but there are some definite concerns about his personality affecting a team’s clubhouse.

Pierzynski signed a one-year, $8.25 million deal with the Boston Red Sox before the 2014 season, but the relationship between the veteran, his teammates and manager John Farrell deteriorated.

Ultimately, the Red Sox placed Pierzynski on waivers and that led to him signing on with the St. Louis Cardinals for the remainder of the season, per Rob Bradford of WEEI.com:

Pierzynski had become such a negative influence on the team that players approached both the Sox coaches and front office to address the problem. The common theme expressed was the catcher’s seeming indifference toward his teammates and the common goals of the same organization that had relied on an all-for-one approach when winning the 2013 World Series.

Between his time in Boston and St. Louis, Pierzynski hit .251 with five homers, 37 RBI and a .288 on-base percentage in 102 games. The two-time All Star is a career .281 hitter with 177 home runs. 

While Pierzynski will be 38 by next season, he still has plenty of experience, including playoffs, to help a team in need at the position.

5 Fights for Edson Barboza to Take Next

At UFC Fight Night 57, Edson Barboza used his arsenal of powerful kicks and footwork to snap the eight-fight winning streak of Bobby Green in Saturday night’s co-main event.  Green got hit with some hard shots and taunted Barboza after nearly every connection the Brazilian made.  Instead of firing back with strikes or takedown attempts, Green chose the strategy of walking down Barboza with his hands down and getting lit up in the process.  

The win was a big one for Barboza and his first victory over a Top 10 opponent.  He’s made some missteps in the past that cost him greatly in fights against Jaime Varner and Donald Cerrone, but against Green he kept his composure and used his powerful offense to make his claim for a spot in the Top 10.  

Here are five fights for Barboza to take next after UFC Fight Night 57.
