Fraud and receiving information are two different entities. The former relates to an actual crime where the violation of rights is involved. Information from a friend is just data supplied from a close associate that could benefit both parties. Seattle Seahawks linebacker Mychal Kendricks is facing time in prison and a multi-million dollar fine for his role in an insider trading scandal.
Desiderius Erasmus once said that “In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.” Single-sighted rapper Fetty Wap may be feeling closer to a pauper, now. In a defamation case, a judge ruled that Fetty violated a contract between him and Shawna Morgan, an ex-tour staffer. After the dust settled, Fetty is now being forced to pay just over a million dollars to Morgan. Not only did Mr. Wap not reimburse Morgan for paying out of her own pocket to finance his tours, but she stopped receiving the ten percent owed to her for working on those tours. Not only that, but Fetty damaged Morgan’s reputation by blasting her in the public claiming theft against her name.
Rounds flew once again in the streets of Wilmington, Delaware. A 25-year-old man received medical attention based on his bullet wounds. It is no secret that Wilmington is a tiny hotbed compared to Philadelphia and New York City for these types of cases. It barely registers on the map as a blip. But the just over 70,000 residents have either grown weary or apathetic to the news of yet another shooting in the 21 incidents which have occurred already in 2020.
The madness continues. A man committed an armed robbery of two people and stole their car at gunpoint in Lincoln, Delaware. Where is the rationality? Where is the selfishness? If the suspect had thought through his actions and considered his own short-term and long-term self-interest, then he would’ve never decided to go against the letter of the law an morality.
A Dover, Delaware man has been charged with first degree murder of his child’s mother. A second look at that sentence may not hold enough information but it says a great deal. For a murder in the first degree, that could mean a minimum of twenty-five years in prison or life in Delaware. The irrationalism involved in the case is evident. Emotion before thought led this man to take this woman from her child and other children under her care.
