My reactions to the criminal justice system in America.

Molly Shattuck: RAPIST

(Photo: Michael Yarish, AP) I first wrote about this case last November, then-47 year old Molly Shattuck, notably for at age 38 becoming the oldest woman ever hired as an NFL cheerleader when she was hired by the Baltimore Ravens. Admittedly gratuitous cheerleader pic. – You’re welcome. A recently divorced mother of three young children,…

GEORGE ZIMMERMAN: CELEBRITY BOXER?!?

Yesterday the story broke that George Zimmerman has, apparently, signed with some kind of promoter for a possible celebrity boxing match. And today it was reported that rapper The Game wants to fight him. Seriously. While I’ve seen some people saying that they hope this happens and that The Game whoops his ass, because they…

POLICE BEAT UP DEAF SENIOR CITIZEN

PEARL PEARSON An Oklahoma City resident is claiming that Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers beat him for disobeying their orders. The only problem is that 64-year-old Pearl Pearson is deaf—a fact that he says a sign in his car indicates. According to Fox 4 News, Pearson allegedly fled the scene of a car accident before being…

KELLY THOMAS: MURDERED BY COPS

As I was just saying, cops are getting away with murder lately. This tragedy was really sickening. Kelly Thomas was brutally beaten to death by a bunch of policemen, while he was screaming and pleading for his life, and it was caught on video! This should have been straight-up first-degree MURDER. Instead, one office, Manual…

RANDALL KERRICK: MURDERER

Less than a week after one grand jury declined to charge him, a different one has indicted a Charlotte, N.C., police officer for voluntary manslaughter in the shooting death of an unarmed man who was looking for help after a car crash. Prosecutors resubmitted the case against Officer Randall Kerrick after learning not all 18…

KANYE WEST SHOULD GO TO JAIL

Witnesses say Kanye West attacked a man who allegedly unleashed a tirade of racial slurs against the rapper’s fiance, Kim Kardashian, in Beverly Hills on Monday. The incident was reported about 12:15 p.m. Monday at a building in the 8800 block of Wilshire Boulevard, a commercial district, according to a statement from the Beverly Hills…

JUSTICE OR JUST US?

A man in Texas was sentenced to six months in jail for a dispute over his child support, even though he’s paid his ex-wife exactly what he owed her. By the time he was called to Houston court, Clifford Hall had paid his child support in full, including $3,000 in backpay that was not withheld…

SEX, LIES, AND RELATIONSHIPS

The sexual behaviour of undercover police fits the definition of rape One of the 11 women who are currently suing the police after being tricked into having sexual relationships with men later revealed to be undercover officers said that she felt that she had been “raped by the state”. “We were sexually abused,” she said,…

DAMN. EVEN A COP-KILLER ON DEATH ROW HAS BETTER LUCK WITH WOMEN THAN I DO. . .

This is Ronell Wilson. In 2006 he was convicted of murdering NYPD Detectives James Nemorin and Rodney Andrews, and sentenced to death. The sentence was over-turned on some kind of technicality, and he remains in prison awaiting a new sentencing trial. But while in prison, he’s been kinda busy… Pregnant federal guard accused of having…
