She’s not smallville no more!

April 22nd, 2018

So this is an interesting STORY that surfaced this week. Apparently, actress Allison Mack has been charged with 4 counts of sex trafficking in New York State. Equally interesting is her alleged involvement in a secret group that supposedly filters women into the trafficking. Seems like some Hollywood drama series, but it’s real life.

Looks as though the Feds have a pretty solid case. Definitely worth following, right?


Something’s amiss in Philly

April 15th, 2018

There’s are two sides to every story, but something seems amiss at a Philadelphia Starbucks where 2 Black men were handcuffed, arrested, and taken to the police station for…wait for it…sitting in their establishment without buying a cup of coffee.


Check out the STORY

And the Philly Police Chief is playing street lawyer with his statement. Last time I checked police officers have discretion regarding making arrests and it seems to me they used theirs in the wrong manner. To me, the officers should have left it alone. All the while, videos (and eyewitness accounts) show the 2 men were quiet and not causing any disturbances.

Can’t tell you how many people I’ve seen in Starbucks and not buying anything.


Females, babies, and bars

April 8th, 2018

This week’s blog highlights the issue of female prisoners. Watch the VIDEO and read the short article about some of the issues facing female offenders when they arrive in US jails and prisons. While I’m aware that some women have committed crimes that should result in jail/prison sentence, I’m pretty taken aback by what happens to some once they walk through the doors of our jails and prisons. I’m particularly shocked by the plight of pregnant female offenders.

QUESTION: Can’t we find an alternative to sending pregnant females offenders to jail/prison?
