NYDN– A jilted bride put her wedding feast to good use by feeding Sacramento’s homeless, according to a local report. A salmon and tri-tip smorgasbord coordinated by Quinn Duane and her unidentified would-be husband would have fed 120 of the bride’s friends and family Saturday afternoon, but the pricy $35,000 wedding was scrapped at the last minute when the groom got cold feet just five days before the reception. The new guests, including a slew of less fortunate families with children from local shelters, took advantage of the Duane family’s kindness, matriarch Kari Duane told KCRA-TV. “When I found out on Monday that the wedding would not be taking place, it just seemed, like, of course this would be something that we would do to give back,” Duane told the TV station. The reception was catered by the posh restaurant at the Citizen Hotel, where on Saturday underserved Sacramento residents snaked around tables while in line for the buffet. Erika Craycraft, her husband Rashad Abdullah and their five children, were among those filling their stomachs. “I think it’s really generous to lose out on something so important to yourself and then give it to someone else is really giving,” Craycraft told the TV station. The bride stayed home instead of attending Saturday’s dinner, but will be getting a vacation out of her situation. Before tackling mounting bills tied to the wedding, mother and daughter will take off to Belize with the non-refundable honeymoon tickets and reservations.
Ahhhh weddings. Love a good wedding. Some food, some dancing, some alcohol. Get dressed to the 9s all stylish hoping to find a lady for the night. Everything looks classy on the surface, bet thats what the Venue and Bride both wanted out of this lovely event. What they were not hoping for was 120 homeless people all gathered in a “posh” restaurant inside whats suppose to be a lovely hotel. Sure its a nice gesture I guess if you’re the Moral Police, but the fact is, the bride was probably at home contemplating ending it all while a recovering drug addict was sitting where her friends and family were suppose to sit eating her expensive ass “Salmon and Tri-tip smorgasbord” because her fiance said fuck it and bailed.
Who hates this the most though, isn’t the bride, it’s the hotel. Now apparently this was suppose to be a nice ritzy venue?
Apparently so. Except looking back at the picture above, it looks like they stripped it down to the bare bones knowing that the parent’s decided to use it to pedal exquisite food to bums. That place looks like you’re average senior citizen bingo hall now and I don’t blame em. You don’t know what kinda smells linger because of the homeless’ lack of hygiene. If they kept the open bar who knows what kind of catastrophe you’re in for with recovering addicts. A Hotel’s suppose to be where people go away to physically and mentally. I don’t want to leave my 500 dollar a night hotel room and potentially get stabbed on the way to the concierge desk because some nice white folks decided to feed the mass of homeless. If i were the Hotel id just tell them its off. Not worth the degradation of class. Yea you and the bride might be emotionally wrecked and want to do some good out of a shitty event, but you’re gonna be jet setting to Ibiza from you’re non-refundable honeymoon tickets while we have to steam clean the entire conference hall because you wanted to let bums eat there. Hope they didn’t use the fancy silverware or fine china either. Feed em in the broom closet with paper plates and plastic utensils cause you know if not they’ll steal that shit to pawn off later.

SACRAMENTO — Police in Sacramento say two armed men looking for a man they said they intended to harm broadcast the hunt on live-video app Periscope. The suspects, now in custody, never found the possible victim and they’re now in custody, reports CBS Sacramento. The men reportedly said one of their girlfriends was with another man, and they intended to confront him and “see what we could do.” A viewer sent a link of the broadcast to the station. According to the station, police say the two suspects – identified as 28-year-old Damon Batson and 25-year-old Carlos Gonzalez – broadcast for more than an hour Wednesday while their Periscope followers egged them on, “liking” the broadcast with hearts and some posting gun emoticons. At one point, the station reports, one of the suspects fired a gun after a viewer asked them via the app to prove the weapon they were brandishing was real. Gonzalez appears to fire the gun from the passenger seat of a moving vehicle, reports the Sacramento Bee. The men are shown on the video knocking on the door of an apartment, but apparently, no one was home. “If I didn’t think I would get in trouble with the law, n— I would Periscope everything,” Gonzalez apparently says on the video. One of the men also allegedly showed off what appeared to be marijuana plants in the same broadcast. No one reported the hour-long broadcast to police while it was live, reports the station. It wasn’t until the next day that police were alerted, and they were able to identify the victims and arrest them on Thursday. “We’re very fortunate that it ended this way, that no one got hurt,” Sacramento Police Sgt. Doug Morse told the station. Morse said that the incident was “almost unprecedented” in their area. The disturbing broadcast comes after the shooting deaths Wednesday of WDBJ reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward in Virginia, which was seen on live television. The suspect, Vester Flanagan, also apparently recorded the shootings and posted video to social media. Expert Julie Gallaher told the station social media often play’s into people’s desire to feel famous and can easily be used by those with “evil intent” seeking notoriety or recognition in their crimes. “If someone has evil intent, it’s just as easy for them to use the platforms as people that are good,” Gallaher said. Police have still not identified the possible victim. After serving a search warrant, police located the gun believed to be the one shown in the broadcast, reports the Bee. Batson was jailed on gun and drugs charges, and Gonzalez was booked on suspicion of gross negligent discharge of a firearm and possession of a loaded gun in public, the paper reports.
Rap snitches, tellin all their business. Sit in the court and be they own star witness. Honestly idk how hard or tough these dumb mother fuckers think they are but they might be the worst class of criminal on the streets. I mean who wants to get their drugs and be linked to a dealer that puts all his shit out there for the world to know about. Keep shit on the low, homie. Might as well use your name and birth certificate when you ask anyone if they want to buy and eighth of weed. But worst of all was the gun. Like THATS what you’re gonna try to murder someone with? Some 2 shot derringer? I’ve seen girls probably laugh at that little pea shooter. If you’re gonna be your own snitch on social media and blast all your crimes on live broadcast through periscope you gotta come out with something harder than a derringer palm pistol and a failed attempt at murder.
