Ab-Soul Says "God Bless" Ex-LAPD Officer Who Killed 3

Christopher Dorner has found a fan in Ab-Soul. Dorner, wanted for killing three people, has been seeking revenge on the Los Angeles Police Department, with no one aware of what his next move will be.
The former officer began his killing spree on Super Bowl Sunday, shooting the daughter of a retired police captain, and her fiancé. A day later he took on a few cops, one of which was killed.
Going on the run last week, Dorner posted a manifesto unveiling shady practices and racism on the force, words which moved Ab to show his support.

ALBANY — Gov. Andrew Cuomo's popularity has slipped, a poll released Wednesday by Quinnipiac University shows, likely due to Cuomo's aggressive advocacy for a gun control bill that he signed into law earlier this month.

The poll found Cuomo's job Wapproval rating dropped from 74 percent to 59 percent, and his approval standing among Republican voters dropped from 68-18 in January to 44-43.
