*If it wasn’t for the photo, this might be a bit hard to prove. But police are investigating whether a cop put a seven-months-pregnant woman in a chokehold as he attempted to bust her because she was grilling on a sidewalk in Brooklyn — an incident caught on film.
Photos released Monday by an East New York advocacy group show Rosan Miller, 27, struggling with a cop who appears to have his arm around her neck.
Though the NYPD prohibits the use of chokeholds, it appears its police officers never got the memo.
Officers went to the Millers home over the weekend because the woman was grilling on a public sidewalk in violation of local law, cops said. The “visit” ended with Rosan Miller, her brother and husband all in handcuffs.Continue reading →
*Wearing his prison orange and a smirk of no remorse on his face, Donovan Lamar Haynes, 23, walked into a Genesee County courtroom last Monday to receive his sentence of 18-40-years in prison for the second-degree murder of his 2-year-old daughter, according to the Flint Journal.
Even his defense attorney, Elbert Hatchett, called the Michigan father “deranged,” adding that he hopes in prison, his client will seek out psychological help, counseling and “atonement.”
*We have all heard about the power of forgiveness. Some of us have even experienced it. But what if the person did something really bad, like killed someone.
Is it possible to forgive that person? What if that person is you? Huffington Post shows usa former drug dealerand convicted murderer who was in solitary confinement when he had the breakthrough that changed the direction of his life forever. Continue reading →
*Used to be a time when the only people even expected to talk about sex were men. A man thinks nothings of boasting about “tappin’ that!” or “Hittin’ this!” Well, apparently, they can talk all they want; women always were more “action-oriented.” And there are two stories that seem to be circulating on social media that show they, too, have expectations that apparently were not fulfilled, so instead of talking – they took some pretty extreme measures to show exactly how they feel.
A Detroit judge recently granted bond to a woman convicted of assault earlier this year after she shot and nearly killed her boyfriend of 15 years “over bad sex,” according to the headline. Sadie Bell, 58, suspected her married boyfriend—who she has been with for more-than-a-decade—was cheating on her (her “proof” is a little too graphic to explain). Seems kind of ironic, right? She expects a married man who has been having an affair with her, to be faithful to her when he is obviously cheating on his wife (yeah, with her). Continue reading →
*We all know preachers who get very excited in the pulpit and say things that maybe they shouldn’t. Then, there are others who get creative with how they use the word of God to share a message that might seem surprising, but is powerful and redemptive at the end. One pastor in particular has turned heads with his latest sermon. He has become quite taken with a phrase that we have heard everywhere except church – on the street; at the end of a bad argument, or at least as a statement to someone who has gotten on our last nerve.
He has also acknowledged that his congregation is “looking at him crazy.” Why? Probably because they can’t believe that he is encouraging them to use the ‘F-word’…often.
*Well if this don’t beat all! Please join me as I shake my head on this one. It appears that if cops are not beating the crap out of somebody, they are stealing peoples’ possessions.
A Connecticut state police trooper accused of stealing jewelry and cash from the body of John Scalesse, a motorcyclist who died at the scene of a motorcycle crash, pleaded guilty today to felony charges and will spend more than a year in prison, according to the court.
Aaron Huntsman, had been a state trooper with the department for nearly two decades at the time of the crime, and is now guilty of third-degree larceny and tampering with evidence. Continue reading →
*No doubt, Beyonce knows a great opportunity when she sees one, and now she may be tempting us with the results. Accustomed to her own reputation for turning folks on, the “Partition,” singer posted a teaser for the eagerly anticipated erotic drama “Fifty Shades of Grey” on her Instagram account over the weekend. So the question is, is it a done deal that Beyonce music will be on the soundtrack?
According to the L.A. Times, “Fifty Shades of Grey,” has been described as “mommy porn” and is adapted from E.L. James’ wildly popular 2011 novel, which tells the story of virginal college student Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), the dashing, domineering billionaire who takes an interest in her.
