When an attorney needs defense attorneys, that usually means that there’s real trouble. Former lawyer Michael Avenatti received a guilty verdict related to an extortion case involving the athletic apparel giant Nike amongst other charges. He faces at least two scores in prison at sentencing in June 2020. Known as the lawyer for adult film actress Stormy Daniels, Avenatti seemed poised to even one day ascend to the highest office in the land. Now, he is confined to a jail cell and allegedly being treated “like a caged animal.” Good. His smugness and subjectivism did him in this time. He just knew that his thousand dollar suits and slick talk would get him out of this jam. Such was not the case.
When it comes to the believers who entrust their funds in their houses of worship, they expect those dollars to be handled well. This, allegedly, did not happen in Florence Township, New Jersey. Taisha Smith-Dejoseph, 43, is accused of fraud and embezzlement among other charges as the former volunteer of the St. Paul’s Baptist Church. Any non-believer or devout parishioner can see that this is an egregious slight against the letter of the law. For Smith-Dejoseph to so brazenly steal and lie should disturb both camps.
The Hardest Working Man in Show Business, James Brown, met his end in 2006. Now, new evidence suggests that someone murdered Brown. District Attorney from Atlanta Paul Howard, is determined to find facts sufficient enough to evaluate the claims. A woman says that the case should be re-examined. Jacque Hollander brought the idea of Brown being laid down by wicked hands to Howard. She also alleged that Brown’s wife Adrienne had died under suspicious circumstances after a cosmetic surgery incident. Rumors had swirled like a tornado sweeping through the midwest but left only trails of misunderstanding and falsehoods. So, what does all of this mean? Most likely, people will not be as interested in an investigation as digging up old dirt will not bring Brown back to life. But with the Who Killed Malcolm X? Netflix special that shone a light on the assasination of the Muslim leader, folks, on the other hand, may crave clues as to the shady death of one of the world’s biggest acts.
With its lack of guidelines, rules, parameters and a council, hip hop is a genre of music not a culture. Not only is it lacking a moral compass, but it was smashed a long time ago. Tankhead666 has been charged with attempted murder and second-degree murder for his involvement in the almost death of a restaurant employee and the death of his accomplice. In Florida, the stories of weird occurrences continue to surface. The rapper’s prominent facial tattoos led to the police eventually capturing the suspect. As out of control and wild as hip hop can get, it is with the individual like Tankhead that the blame should be placed on, primarily.
While a hate crime is an anticoncept, it should still be discussed. As a result of our twisted culture where people feel that America is a democracy (it’s a constitutional republic) and where young men allegedly lie about being attacked, it is easy to slip up and not regard the truth. For Jussie Smollett, the case from over a year ago which brought international attention has resurfaced with an indictment against the actor. How he contends against the facts will be a tough fight. And he will, it seems, ultimately lose.
Onions sizzle and provolone cheese bubbles atop red strips of beef and gray tiny slabs of chicken. Like a surgeon performing work on a patient, a young lady flips over the contents of the grill with precision and ease. The scent of a cheesesteak and a chicken cheesesteak waft through the store. It is replete with a panoply of colorful chips, cookies, potato salad, macaroni salad, and potato salad. This is Casapulla’s in Newark, make that Glasgow, Delaware.
