John Lennon’s Hollywood Star Defaced By Vandals

Both suspects have also pleaded not guilty. During a preliminary hearing, prosecutors presented their evidence against the three suspects. It included testimony from Robert Harden, who was with Calderon on the night she was killed. “When we reached the corner, I realized she was covered in blood,” Harden said. He testified that both he and Calderon took photos of the suspects, who were panhandling and holding obscenity-laced signs. When he and Calderon refused to pay the suspects for the photos, Harden says Kinnear attacked Calderon. “I saw him on top of her,” Harden said. Calderon died of a stab wound to her upper torso. Kinnear was arrested hours later. Attorneys for Kinnear and the other two suspects argued that Harden’s story was inconsistent, and that there wasn’t enough evidence to support the charges against their clients. But prosecutors called on Tracy Breeding, who was seen on surveillance video talking to Kinnear moments after the murder. Breeding testified that Kinnear said to him, “I just did something really stupid. I stabbed someone.” The victim’s mother was in court, demanding justice for her daughter.

The damage was noticed by a Beatles tour guide Gillian Lomax, who organises A Magical Mystery Tour around California. According to The Hollywood Reporter , she was showing a group of tourists John Lennon’s star on Vine Street on October 5 when she discovered that vandals had covered it with graffiti, which included drawings and the words “I love you,” and “Blackbird… Rain was here.” “Morons did it,” Lomax said. “Rather tacky. There was a group of them, judging from the different coloured pens. I tried to rub it out, but to no avail.” Representatives from the Hollywood Walk Of Fame reacted promptly when alerted to the damage, by October 7 the graffiti had gone. “We don’t mess around,” Ana Martinez from the Hollywood Walk Of Fame said. “I think Capitol is looking into seeing if there’s any video [of the crime]. They’re registered state landmarks. Those are my babies! We’ve had people destroy stars, cracking or prying out parts of the stars, and they do go to jail and they have to pay back for the repairs. We just had one recently damaged Arsenio Hall’s, and a couple near him.” The Hollywood Walk Of Fame consists of over 2,500 stars, which are embedded into the pavement along 15 blocks of Hollywood Boulevard and three blocks of Vine Street in Hollywood, California.

Maybe not so much. Critics are dubbing the current Tinseltown movie season as perhaps the porniest ever given the amount of sexually-charged movies coming out, touching on everything from statutory rape and sex addiction, to incest and even a little bit of necrophilia thrown in there for good measure. Too many current movies for this fall are tinged, or rather stained, by too many studios releasing meaningless, empty stories that seem to be more porn-like than film-like. Making movies that glorify porn addicts, child molesters, necrophiliacs who kill in order to have sex later only contributes to the decay of the moral compass of society, filmmaker and media educator Nicole Clark told FOX411. Too many people in our society have become desensitized. Some of the films make this years controversial Spring Breakers appear tame. So where to even start? Daniel Radcliffe has shed his Harry Potter persona for the upcoming Kill Your Darlings with an exploration of homosexuality, masturbation and picking up older men in bar, and Blue is the Warmest Color continues to stir controversy in the U.S. as it is released in more and more film festivals. The French lesbian movie, which won the Cannes Film Festival, is being hailed for its artistic elements and passionate love story, but has been slapped with a NC-17 rating and includes a very graphic, lengthy sex scene. Technically in America, the relationship would be considered statutory rape. But according to human behavior expert Patrick Wanis, sexually explicit content is everywhere and it is simply a logical progression that the business of Hollywood would cash in by taking the cultural movement to the next level.
