Los Angeles (CNN) -- Rapper Andre Johnson severed his penis and jumped from a Los Angeles apartment building early Wednesday, police said.

Johnson was seriously injured, but survived the fall from the second level of the building in North Hollywood, Los Angeles Police Sgt. William Mann said.

Johnson, along with his recovered penis, was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he was being treated, Mann said.

It's unclear if doctor's are attempting to reattach Johnson's penis.

Two members of a group Bearer collaborates with live in the same apartment building, and told TMZ they were there when Johnson suddenly -- without warning -- cut off his penis and jumped off the balcony. They say they were not on "any hard drugs that would cause him to do such a thing."

The two men say they rushed downstairs and Christ Bearer had already jumped up and began screaming incoherently.

Johnson is also known by the stage names Christ Bearer and Andre Roxx, and is in the rap group Northstar. Wu-Tang Clan founding member RZA produced Northstar's debut album.

His recording credits include "When the Guns Come Out," which was included on the soundtrack of the 2004 film "Blade: Trinity."
Quote:The London Jewish community is in shock after reports surfaced that a teacher at the prestigious North London Collegiate School told a student that she would be sent "to one of your gas chambers," after the girl jumped the lunch line, reported the Jewish Chronicle on Sunday.

The incident has now resurfaced, apparently, because the parents of the girl, who was 17 at the time, pressed the headmistress on Saturday to make a public statement regarding the issue.

The father of the girl, who wishes to remain anonymous, told the Daily Mail that the incident occurred in the school's dining hall, and the remark was overheard by numerous students

"A teacher was passing by and she rushed up to my daughter and said, 'Don’t do that or I’ll have to send you to the back of the queue or to one of your gas chambers,'" he was quoted as saying.

According to the British news website, the altercation occurred in January, and the school has no intention of exposing the identity of the student or teacher involved. An apology was reportedly given to the student privately, but the school will not comment on the disciplinary action they have or have not taken.

"It was very unpleasant, very uncalled-for and very unfortunate," the Daily Mail quoted the girl's father as saying. "My daughter was shocked and upset. She didn’t say anything to the teacher at the time but all her friends expressed amazement. They kept saying, 'Did she really say that?”'"

The Jewish Chronicle quoted a statement made by the school saying, "The school was recently made aware of an allegation of an offensive statement made by a member of staff. The school promptly commenced an investigation.

"Having reached a determination and sought specialist legal advice, appropriate action was taken," the statement also said.

Between 20 and 25 percent of North London Collegiate School pupils are Jewish, according to deputy head Alex Wilson.

Former students include actress Rachel Weisz, and Vogue editor Anna Wintour.

Why no name of teacher or victim?

strange story.
It it's true, it's way out of line.

"Officials with the VA Medical Center in downtown Charleston say a North Charleston man who was initially federally charged with a $525 fine for an $.89 drink refill will instead be given a warning.

"In reviewing the case, the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center has determined a warning in lieu of a citation is sufficient in this case," a statement released by the VA stated on Thursday.

Christopher Lewis, an on-site construction worker, said he didn't know refills at the VA Medical Center in downtown Charleston came at a price, and Wednesday, during his lunch hour, he was originally slapped with federal charges. The ticket was issued by the Federal Police Force at the VA Medical Center in downtown Charleston after Lewis refilled his soda without paying the $0.89. A hospital spokesperson on Wednesday called it a "theft of government property."

"Every time I look at the ticket, it's unbelievable to me,” Lewis said on Wednesday. “I can't fathom the fact that I made a $0.89 mistake that cost me $525."

Lewis is now out of a job. According to a hospital spokesperson, signs are posted in the cafeteria informing patrons that refills aren't free. Lewis says he never noticed the signs and admits he had refilled his drink without paying on other occasions. He says after he went back for seconds on Wednesday, a man who identified himself as the chief of police, stopped him.

"As I was filling my cup up, I turned to walk off and a fella grabbed me by the arm and asked me was I going to pay for that, and I told him I wasn't aware that I had to pay for that."

Lewis says he tried to pay the $0.89 right there, but wasn't allowed to. He says he wasn't given the chance to pay the cashier either.

"I never had an option to make right what I had done wrong."

He says he was taken to a room, given the $525 ticket for shoplifting and told not to return to the property.

"I'm done there, at the VA hospital. I'm not allowed to go on the premises anymore. I asked him can I still work on the job site and just bring my lunch and not got to the cafeteria and he said he wanted me off the premises."

A hospital spokesperson says it was her understanding that Lewis was aggressive during the confrontation.

The medical center originally released the following statement on Wednesday:

The Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center is fortunate to have a highly trained Federal police force to ensure the safety of our patients, visitors and employees. As Federal police they are responsible for enforcing the law. Today a Federal citation was issued for shoplifting in the VA cafeteria to an individual who stated to VA police he had not paid for refills of beverages on multiple occasions, even though signs are posted in the cafeteria informing patrons refills are not free. Shoplifting is a crime. The dollar amount of the ticket is not determined by VA as it is a Federal citation. The citation may be paid or the recipient may choose to appear in Federal court to contest it.

Lewis and his fiancé have contacted the Internal Affairs Office in Columbia. He says he will contest the fine in federal court.

"It's about pretty much I guess you would say getting your face back. I want everybody to know that I made a simple mistake, that I'm not a thief, that I'm not dishonest. I'm trying to do the right thing."

I guess I better retire the old "ask for a cup for water, fill up with soda" trick.

Toyota to move U.S. sales HQ to Texas

LOS ANGELES -- After 57 years of being based in the trend-setting Los Angeles area, Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. is moving its sales and marketing headquarters to Plano, Texas, sources close to the matter said.

The move will occur in stages and take two years to complete, the people said. Most of Toyota's 5,000 Torrance-based headquarters management and employees will be affected, several Toyota insiders said.

The transition was announced to a small group of Toyota executives on Friday, and the rest of the staff will be told on Monday, the sources said.

Toyota chief spokeswoman Julie Hamp declined to comment on the matter, calling it “rumor and speculation.”

Calls and e-mails to Plano city officials were not returned.

The relocation would mark the second time a Japanese automaker has left a headquarters in California where U.S. sales operations were established in the 1950s. Nissan North America transferred to Nashville, Tenn., in 2006.

Marketing shift

The automaker had been expected to announce details of a change in its marketing operations this week.

An overhaul was expected to go into effect on May 1, Automotive News reported in February. That report said 80 employees would be required to reapply for newly created positions or take a voluntary separation.

In February, Toyota said employee roles and responsibilities were being redefined to be more "integrated, flexible and efficient."

The automaker said those changes were necessary "in order to meet our future business needs, and support our dealers and guests more effectively."

At the time, Jack Hollis, vice president of marketing for the Toyota division, said the company's marketing ranks will likely grow in the near future.

But because the operating structure of the department would be changing, some current employees might not have skill sets that match the new organization, Toyota said.

Cost advantages

Despite the deep, creative talent pool in greater Los Angeles, doing business in California has become more expensive for companies and their workers. The Los Angeles metropolitan area has been ranked ninth most-expensive in the United States by Expatistan; the greater Dallas area is 19th.

According to the Tax Foundation, California trails only New York and New Jersey as the worst for complex, non-neutral taxes with comparatively high rates. Esquire magazine ranked Los Angeles as the most-expensive city in America in which to live "well."

Forbes ranked Texas the seventh-best state for business, a measure that factored a No. 1 ranking for business climate and a 23rd-best ranking for business cost. California came in at 39th out of 50 states, with a 36th-place business climate and seventh-worst business cost.

As for employees, the cost of living is 39 percent higher in Torrance than in Plano, and housing costs are 63 percent cheaper in Plano, according to bestplaces.net. An equivalent $50,000 salary in Torrance would be $30,608 in Plano.

Plano has also ranked highly in “best places” and “safest cities” ratings conducted by CNN and Forbes.

Toyota doesn’t control the distribution of its own vehicles in Texas. Gulf States Toyota of Houston is the independent distributor for the region.

But Toyota already has a relationship with Texas with its $2.2 billion truck assembly complex near San Antonio. During the negotiations for the truck plant, several key Japanese Toyota executives became close with Texas state officials, a source close to Toyota said.

Southern California exodus

The move marks a continuing exodus of major automakers’ operations from Southern California. After nearly 50 years as Toyota’s neighbor down the street in Gardena, Nissan took 1,300 jobs to Nashville when it moved eight years ago. As much as $197 million in relocation assistance from Tennessee helped pave the way.

Ford Motor Co. moved U.S. operations for its Premier Automotive Group of brands -- Volvo, Jaguar, Land Rover and Aston Martin -- to Irvine, in south Orange County, in 2001.

But when Ford unloaded those brands, their U.S. operations returned back to New Jersey. The sales operations of American Isuzu closed in 2009, while American Suzuki left the U.S. market after its auto unit filed for bankruptcy protection in 2012.

Late last year, American Honda spawned talk of a company-wide move to Ohio when it restructured some of its core functions closer to its engineering and manufacturing base in that state.

The new Honda organization combined information systems, human resources, accounting, finance and other functions across to multiple Honda companies in North America into a firm called Honda North America Services.

The new organization also will “streamline coordination of Honda's r&d, manufacturing, purchasing and sales functions as they relate to the introduction of new products,” the company said in a statement at the time. Honda officials insisted that the move was not part of a larger framework to uproot the entire U.S. operations to Ohio.

After Nissan left Los Angeles, Toyota top executives insisted they would never leave the city.

"Israeli forces demolished several structures, including a mosque, in a Palestinian village on Tuesday, the day a deadline for a deal in now-frozen peace talks expired.

A Reuters correspondent saw several hundred soldiers deployed in Khirbet al-Taweel, in the occupied West Bank, around daybreak. They guarded six bulldozers that reduced to rubble buildings that were constructed without Israeli permits. Palestinians say such documents are nearly impossible to obtain.

Palestinians saw a link between the demolitions and the passing, without a peace deal, of the April 29 deadline set when the talks began in July. Israel has also drawn Palestinian anger by continuing to expand settlements on land they seek for a state.

Villagers said the stone mosque was built in 2008, and that soldiers removed prayer rugs and holy scriptures before tearing it down.

Other razed buildings included three one-storey family houses, animal shelters and a communal well. Locals said around 30 people were made homeless.

The Israeli army said in a statement that eight structures, including a "mosque in use", were demolished because they had been built illegally inside a dangerous live-fire military training zone.

"I went to make my dawn prayers at the mosque and found the army surrounding it," said resident Abdel Fattah Maarouf, 63. "Then they tore it down. They want this area so they can build settlements in it."

Speaking on local radio, Yasser Abed Rabbo, a top Palestinian official, said that "unless acts like this cease completely" there was no room to return to U.S.-sponsored peace talks with "this expansionist, racist occupier".

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu suspended negotiations last week after Western-backed President Mahmoud Abbas's Palestine Liberation Organization signed a unity dealt with Hamas, an Islamist group that advocates Israel's destruction.

The pact envisages the formation of a government of non-political technocrats within five weeks and a Palestinian election six months later. Israel said such a government would effectively be backed by Hamas and could not be a peace partner."
