    Reason First: Is B Will His Brother, Big Daddy Yum Yum’s, Keeper or Shooter?

    Aggravated second-degree battery was the case that they gave him. Rapper Brian Alexander “B Will” Wilcott shot his professional wrestler brother Byron “Big Daddy Yum Yum” Wilcott for allegedly “talking too loud.” Talk about sibling rivalry. The brother’s voice got too high apparently so B Will had to grab his gat and get to blasting. Big Daddy Yum Yum is recovering from non-life threatening injuries to his abdomen, thigh and wrist.

    Stars of Solace (ep. 2)

    Hello again. This is Axel, writing to you from a notebook that I hope no one will discover yet. Actually, this counts more as my first time writing here since I sent my previous letter through the wind like a paper plane; looking back, it was foolish and desperate. It hasn't been a day since I last wrote something, so I will try to keep this a daily effort, at least until I get out.

    Bail Bonds: Expectations vs. Reality

    Everyone thinks a bail bond is used for a criminal; someone put in jail for wrongly committing a severe crime. But that's where you are wrong. There are various ways a man can be placed in jail; in fact, even smaller innocent crimes that seem like nothing can cause someone to be put in jail.

    It was one of those days that dragged on at school, and I couldn't wait for the class to end. I usually go to the coffee shop on the corner where they make the best darn coffee along with the sexiest business men that you could lay your eyes on.

    Clemency and Some of Its Benefits

    Clemency and Some of Its Benefits

    Criminal justice is a hot button issue in this country. Kamala Harris used her background as an attorney general for president on a criminal justice platform. The recent talk of the legalization of marijuana, medical and recreational, has served as a gateway to discussing pardoning people that have been convicted for small amounts of marijuana in their possession. Early on in his presidency, Donald Trump pardoned Joe Arpaio, which was very controversial, given Arpaio’s background. It’s everywhere – statistically speaking, around 1 in 3 American adults have a criminal record.
