Death Row Records co-founder Suge Knight was involved in a hit-and-run in Compton, Calif., that left one man dead and another injured on Thursday.

Knight’s attorney, James E. Blatt, confirmed that Knight ran over two bystanders when he tried to escape an altercation with two other men on the set of a film project where Dr. Dre and Ice Cube were present.

Blatt confirmed that the victim is TV actor Terry Carter (of McCloud and the original Battlestar Galactica) and was a close friend of Knight’s. Sources say Carter was in the process of walking to the passenger door of Suge’s vehicle, but happened to be in the rear when Suge gunned it.  The second victim, whom Blatt identified as Cle Sloan, who’s appeared in “Training Day” and “End of Watch” is in unknown condition, according to the Sheriff’s Department.

The incident is still under investigation by the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department.


Facebook Thuggin’: Teen Arrested for Threatening Emojis


 A 17-year-old Bushwick resident was arrested on Sunday after cops spotted alleged threats against the NYPD posted to his Facebook page. And the real trigger, apparently, were emojis: specifically, gun emojis pointed at police emojis. He has since been charged with making terrorist threats, in addition to weapons and drugs possession.

According to a criminal complaint, Osiris Aristy was arrested at his home on Wyckoff Avenue at around 2:46 a.m. on Sunday, after an informant with the police department spotted a series of troubling posts on his Facebook page. These, according to the complaint, included photos of himself posing with drugs, gang signs and guns, but cops were primarily concerned about the emoji-heavy “threats” referencing the NYPD.



Aristy, who has a long rap sheet and pleaded guilty to robbery in October, had bail set at $150,000.


Buju Banton Sentenced to 10 Years For Playing the Middle Man in Cocaine Deal


Buju Banton (real name: Mark Myrie) was sentenced to 10 years in a Federal prisontoday in Tampa, Florida, on charges of “conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute cocaine, possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking offense and using a telephone to facilitate a drug trafficking offense.”

The judge dismissed a gun charge that would have added another 5 years to the sentence, but still ignored pleas for leniency from some of some of his 15 children, Stephen Marley, NBA player Etan Thomas, and even Danny Glover, who vouched for Banton as a “role model, philanthropist and spiritual leader in the community.

If you remember, he was found guilty of those charges just one week after winning a Grammy earlier this year….but the whole thing started back in 2009, when Buju sat next to a man named Alexander Johnson on a flight. Johnson, a career criminal turned paid informant, who hounded Buju for months to connect him with cocaine suppliers. During the trail, Buju insisted that he was just “fronting” to seem street-affiliated:
You gave (the informant) every reason to believe you were a player in the cocaine game,” [prosecutors] said.
Banton shot back: “We were both trying to impress each other. I was just making things up. I was just talking crap. I talk too much.

It’s seems the same journalists that ask for their freedom of speech and press to be protected are enforcing their own brand of censorship. I’m calling for the boycotting of this news blog-Huffington Post. If you’re a member of HuffPost, you may know of this new formula they have on the blog. They choose the comments they want posted on their blog to sway the conversation in the articles favor. I thought one of the interesting tidbit about HuffPost was the freedom it allowed to its members when posting a comment. This was the method in its early phases but not anymore. They are a brand now, thus operate as one. Plus with the cash infusion from AOL…sheesh

How stupid can AOL management team be? The move to plunge so much cash into a news blog is ridiculous, they could have paid a team to start a rival news blog. However, we know AOL management does not know how to operate in this new business climate of the Internet, Social Network or New Media. They keep plunking down cash for failures, should I go into the history of AOL? The problem is the old boys club did not want to hire an experienced executive in the area of New Media (he would probably be some gen-xer or younger i.e. Mr. Zuckerberg and they can’t have a young person at the helm, no way). So they said, ‘we have all this cash let’s do what we always do, lets buy one of these smaller efficient New Media companies.’ And so they did, also how is Dick Parsons offered the reins of media company that is embarking on a new media platform? Dick had no former experience with new media (sorry Dick, you’ve been hiding too long).

Huffington Post is nothing but a sensational news blog and a cheers to Jesse Ventura, he was the first to notice that the platform HuffPost started on is no longer there. In the early days of HuffPost, we could not get enough, during the 2008 Election especially. Now, they are just another corporate conglomerate that spins the news. Comments were allowed of any sorts as long as it was not deemed offensive in a manner that it would cause harm. Another annoying fact is, none of these pundits lives in the real world. Most of us struggle daily to survive and eat; they struggle with the DC political party to go to on weekends in that beautiful city. Arianna Huffington is an expert on her life, that’s it. News pundits can point fingers, write memoirs, give speeches at commencements across America but can never offer any solution to most of the problems of this economy. News blog sites such as Huffington Post are posers, it’s not for the benefit of the people or to ask the pertinent questions of our legislators; they follow a for profit motive only. I have no problem with for profit motives but don’t pose as any symbol of freedom of speech when you implement your own censorship

I always thought the journalists were the ones to ask the people’s questions, get the people’s voice out there and hold government or business to laws that govern the land. Now it seems as if these news agencies are picking sides and adding their decorations to the actual facts. I’m sure there are a few people who agree with me on that statement about the news being bias.

In any event, RIP TO HUFFINGTON POST, it was a blog for the people but now masquerading as providing the truth or facts. An advice to the masses, you get 25% of the story from many of these news agencies. NPR, PBS, BBC and RTnews are the only ones that will give at least 75% of the story. We need to show Huffington Post and AOL that they do not have a monopoly of Internet news. In addition, the next wave of news blogs will be sites such as wikileaks and anonleaks not sites like Huffington Post. Huff Post is pushing to be the stuffy news blog on the Internet i.e the financial times. The young staff keep Huff Post relevant, if not that site would be dead yesterday.

Mark Zuckerberg pledges to give away majority of his wealth to charity

This year’s Forbes 400 list of the richest people in America ranked Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg as the 35th richest person in the US, with a net worth of $6.9 billion. Zuckerberg, one of the biggest climbers on the Forbes billionaire list, has now joined 15 other billionaires, including Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz, to give away the majority of his wealth to charity. The 16 tycoons have signed “The Giving Pledge,” which means that these billionaires have committed publicly to giving away the majority of their fortunes to philanthropy.

Assange arrested in Britain

Wikileaks’ Julian Assange was arrested today in Britain. The charges stem from an inquiry in Sweden, where he was accused of sex offenses.

“Officers from the Metropolitan Police extradition unit have this morning arrested Julian Assange on behalf of the Swedish authorities on suspicion of rape,” the police said in a statement.

“Today’s actions against our editor-in-chief Julian Assange won’t affect our operations: we will release more cables tonight as normal,” Wikileaks said on its Twitter account.

Assange was attending a scheduled meeting with police, following their announcement yesterday that ‘all the paperwork’ necessary to issue an arrest warrant had been received.
