Ladies this right here is why you cannot go around beaten on your man and stabbing him up and stuff. HE WILL LEAVE YOUR ASS. Lawd have mercy Jesus. What is Sarah gone do? Diddy ain’t never paid her, she doesn’t work, and she’s got 50-11 kids from this convenient store worker. No let me stop playing, I don’t know where this man works, but wherever it is, they must offer free legal aid. While Sarah is down to the jail cell, Tony was down to da courthouse. Tony said “hell no ma’am, you better have you a place to go when you get released from jail.” I don’t know why I have the feeling that Tony is going to try and get custody of this woman’s kids too. Y’all know these men are low down these days, taking these womens chirren and stuff. Chile, Sarah better take a note out of the Tameka Raymond and Dwayne Wade, and maintain. With this domestic violence stuff being all up in the news, and Sarah seemingly appearing to be the guilty one, it might not be too hard for Tony to prove that she is unfit…

Quiet as its kept, these hoes should have been got a divorce. The two have been married for 18 years. Tony is claiming “the objects of matrimony have been destroyed.” I wonder if they got a fine from the HOA for fighting down to da yard?

Mike Brown, 18, Gunned Down By Officer. Community Outraged As Racial Tensions Mount. Is Rioting Sending The RIGHT Message?

Anyone who knows me knows where I was last night… Down to da bar. When I got home and climbed in bed, drunk of the good liquor, I started playing around on Instagram and noticed that people had started posting pictures of a demolished gas station. Then I started seeing the word “riot” repeatedly. With it being 3am and me not really having the capacity to do anything at that time, i thought to myself, “oh hell, I’ll check it out in the morning.” It saddens me to report that when I woke up this morning,  I found out that there had indeed been a riot in Ferguson Missouri in protest of the death of 18 year old Michael Brown. According to reports, the unarmed teen was gunned down by a police officer, after being stopped, and some sort of confrontation ensued. We’ve heard this story time and time again… The family has retained Trayvon Martin’s attorney, Benjamin Crump Esq. The officer has been put on paid administrative leave while the investigation is taking place.

Those are pretty much the material facts that are available at this time. On to the more analytical side of things, I know that people are upset. Hell, I am outraged, but is rioting and tearing up your own neighborhood the way to go about things? I think not. From the images that have been shown on CNN, one can deduce that the area we are discussing isn’t the most ritzy. With that, its reasonable to assume that the people of said area can benefit from as much business and resources possible. I’ve seen repeated images of the gas station being tore down to the ground. Seriously, we all know QT has the cheap gas. Why tear up the QT? Now people have to go to high ass Chevron. I’m just saying. In the midst of our anger, we’ve got to make an attempt to think rationally. In protest of an innocent life being taken, we run the risk of more innocent lives being taken. Bae-Bae, SWAT teams are trained to shoot, OKAY. I don’t know about you, but I’m not about to go to jail or get shot because I’m inside the gas station stealing bags of chips and scratch off tickets. Yea yea, many of these business have insurance, and can be rebuilt, but that is totally besides the point. Some argue that the folks of Missouri need to tear all that shit up and send America a message. Trust and believe me, a big part of me wants to agree, but i just cant.

Food for thought: Black men shoot and kill other Black men in the streets everyday, and we hardly make a peep. A White man shoots and kills a Black man and now we are ready to march from Montgomery to Selma. Hmmmm seems a little ass backwards to me. It would seem to me that we would be more outraged and hurt two times over with the death of a black man coming from the hands of a black man. We don’t value our lives, but expects them to? Yeah ok that makes perfect sense to me. Y’all don’t hear me though…

Former Miami Heat player Greg Oden was released from jail after being arrested for battery charges after allegedly punching his ex-girlfriend in the face on August 7th. The police arrived to the home of Oden’s mother in Lawrence, Indiana at 3:30 AM where the victim was seen by the police with swelling to the nose and lacerations to the forehead and nose area of the victim’s face. The police report says the victim was uncooperative and told officers she had fallen, but was unable to say when and where that occurred. The best friend of the victim told police that 26-year-old Greg Oden punched the victim in the face.

Oden told police, “Things got out of control and I started to go after the victim. My relative and witness tried to hold me back, but as I swung my arms to move them out of the way, then punched the victim in the face. I was wrong and I know what has to happen.” One of Oden’s family members told police “every time the two visit and go out, there is an argument to follow.”

The 7-foot Oden was jailed and booked on misdemeanor battery he was later released on $10,000 bond.
