Man sues Verizon when his intimate photos show up on stranger’s phone

Crommie bought a Verizon LG V20 for $167 last week in Molalla for his grandmother and offered to download her photos and videos backed up on the Verizon cloud to the new phone.

But Crommie noticed as he scrolled through his grandma’s photos the next day that there were photos of a man and woman and their child mixed in. He realized that the woman in the photos was a former co-worker he hadn’t seen since the summer and the man was her boyfriend.

Crommie reached out to his former co-worker on Facebook and called her about the photos. She told him the photos had been on Smith’s phone.

Crommie said how they got on his grandma’s new phone remains a mystery. He went with Smith last week to the Molalla store and confirmed that a manager suggested suing Verizon.

“There’s no connection between them and my grandma, their phone numbers aren’t the same, we later cleared the phone completely and the same photos came back again,” he said.

Peters said she wonders and worries if their pictures have been downloaded onto other Verizon phones.

Trump Scolds Shooter’s Classmates for Failing to Report Him

Again and again is my favorite. “The first couple times you tell the cops that this guy might be planning to murder 17 people, they’re going to ignore, you, obviously. Make sure you keep telling them. That’s your responsibility.”

Reporters, politicians, trained psychiatrists and others have issued countless warnings about this dude being an unreasonable, narcissistic, war-hungry, short-tempered and mentally damaged man-child who shouldn’t have been allowed anywhere near the White House. Unfortunately that all amounted to fuck-all a couple of Novembers ago.

Veteran Congressman Can Still Remember When Inaction On Gun Violence Actually Presented A Moral Dilemma

Posted on February 16th, 2018 at 9:26 by John Sinteur in category: News


Thinking back to a far simpler time, veteran congressman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) told reporters Thursday that he could still remember when his inaction on gun violence actually presented a moral dilemma. “I can still recall how, years ago, deciding not to take any steps to address universal background checks or a broken mental healthcare system following a mass shooting felt like a real, concrete struggle,” said Grassley, a member of Congress since 1975, reminiscing on how he used to do a lot of mental gymnastics to justify his idleness on the epidemic and would frequently lie awake at night contemplating whether there was blood on his hands. “I have a lot of memories of going back and forth on whether accepting all this money from the NRA made me complicit in all of these deaths. I would sometimes get so troubled by it, I’d even ask my wife or my friends if they thought I was a good person, but nowadays, I just fire off my ‘thoughts and prayers’ tweet without thinking about it and just keep going about my day.” At press time, Grassley admitted that he was starting to get a bit bored after continuing to talk about the subject for so long.
