Even though the senseless murder of Sean Bell happened on November 25, 2006. Fashion Hurtz didn’t know him personally but at the same time he was a young black man from NYC and we are too. The verdict came back and it wasn’t on the side of the victims (Sean Bell’s family & us) but we gotta let our voices be heard. Fashion Hurtz designed this shirt for that reason alone and somehow help out the family in there time of need.

The cops who shot and killed Sean Bell got off:
The three cops who killed Sean Bell on his wedding day in a 50-bullet barrage were cleared of all charges Friday - sparking tears inside the courtroom and anger on the streets outside. “The defendants are not guilty of all charges,” Queens Supreme Court Justice Arthur Cooperman declared. “The burden was on the people to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Each defendant was assumed to be innocent.” Cooperman said justification was used as a defense, he had to consider the “mindset of the defendants, not the victims. What the victims did, was more important to resolve the issues at hand than what was in their minds.”
Oliver, who fired 31 times and reloaded once, and Isnora, who fired 11 times, had been charged with manslaughter, felony assault and reckless endangerment. They faced up to 25 years in prison if convicted on all charges. Cooper, who fired four times, faced up to a year in jail if convicted of reckless endangerment. None of the detectives testified, although their grand jury testimony was read out loud at the trial. Sean Bell’s father, William, said he would call on the feds to try the cops for violating his son’s civil rights if they were acquitted.

Judge William Terrell Hodges said Snipes exhibited a "history of contempt over a period of time" for U.S. tax laws, and granted prosecutors the three year sentence they requested one year for each of Snipes' convictions of willfully failing to file a tax return.
Snipes was the highest-profile criminal tax target in years, and prosecutors called for a heavy sentence to deter others from trying to obstruct the IRS. The government alleged Snipes made at least $13.8 million for the years in question and owed $2.7 million in back taxes.
DAMN THEY LOCKING,EVERYBODY UP.

“Rap legend KRS-One suffered a fractured right hand at the hands of an angry fan, during a recent performance at a New Haven, CT nightclub. The fan, who became upset after being escorted off stage by the club’s security staff, threw a bottle in the direction of the stage, striking KRS-One in the face and hand. Despite the fan’s hostility, KRS-One remained calm as he urged the crowd to ‘Let it go. When negativity comes your way, let it go,’ said the rapper, who was rushed to to Yale-New Haven hospital in an ambulance. ‘Let this be an example as to how we stop the violence,’ KRS-One said.’”
Ain’t that some stuff. Now the “Stop the Violence” tour is postponed due to violence. KRS-One was really put to the test. Kudos to him for keeping his cool. Those ticket sales would’ve went belly up if he hauled off and b**ch-slapped that guy.

It's no secret Akon likes to exaggerate. Remember that time he said both Alicia Keys and Beyonce were jocking him for a date? Or how he likes to claim he’s from Sengal when actually he was born in St. Louis, or that time he claimed he was a polygamist and had 3 wives? So it should come as no surprise that he exaggerated about his criminal record to up his street cred. Remember when he first came out, he said he spent 4 1/2 years in prison for running a car theft ring? Never happened. According to The Smoking Gun, despite having been arrested six times, the only conviction Akon has on record is a 1998 gun possession charge, for which he got three years probation. He was also arrested in metro Atlanta for possession of a stolen BMW and spent several months in a DeKalb County jail before all charges were dropped. But that's it.
GET IT TOGETHER.DUMMY
WHATS A DUMMY

It may be the end of the line for the "Soul Train Music Awards." A spokeswoman said the show would not go ahead with its 22nd annual installment. Over the years, the show had been largely ignored by the African-American stars the event honors.
At last year's event in Pasadena, most of the winners did not show up, including A-listers, Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, John Legend and Gnarls Barkley.

From September 1999 to March 2003 Lincoln White (above) imported 1.7 tons of cocaine into the United Kingdom. After converting the drug into crack his domestic couriers, who were well paid, supplied the whole of Britain. His empire was valued at $170 million.
White not only had a network of couriers, he also employed enforcers, airline workers and former girlfriends were used to transfer thousands of pounds of crack aboard planes.
The educated druggist lived an average lifestyle as he drove a Peugeot 205 and lived in a £1,000-a-month rented flat in east Dulwich, south London. He also shunned bling.
He was convicted of conspiracy at Kingston Crown Court, for importing and distributing the class 'A' drug.
He was convicted of drug dealing and slapped with a 25-year prison sentence last year.
Officials say, White was the biggest crack cocaine importer, manufacturer and distributor ever arrested in the U.K.

The wife of an inmate sneaked into Standford Hill open prison on the Isle of Sheppey, Kent, in the early hours of Sunday to have sex with her husband in his cell. She was caught by a guard on the grounds as she tried to leave.

“Six teen girls lured a former friend to a home and ambushed her, taking turns pounding on her face and body for 30 minutes until she was unconscious as someone videotaped the violence.
‘Shocking, I’ve never seen anything like it,’ Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said. ‘They seem to have absolutely no remorse at all. I don’t understand the sheer violence.’
Police said the girl traveled to the house and walked into the trap. One girl met her at the door and five others were hiding in a back room, detectives said. The girls were then seen on video pummeling the girl in the face and body and slamming her head into a wall.
As the videotape rolled, a girl’s voice is heard yelling ‘There is only 17 seconds left; make it good.’ Police said the girls wanted to post the video on YouTube and MySpace. Police said two boys stood lookout outside the house during the beating.
The girl was taken to a hospital by ambulance and treated for a concussion, damage to her left eye and left ear, and numerous bruises, the report said. The girl can no longer see well out of one eye and hear from one ear, Local 6 reported.”

Superstars Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter and Beyonce Knowles are now husband and wife, a close friend of the couple has revealed. The couple is alleged to have married in a private ceremony at a chapel in Scarsdale Village in Westchester, New York, on Friday afternoon, surrounded by around 30 friends and family. The all-white ceremony was attended by Knowles' mother Tina and father Mathew, and her younger sister Solange. Also in attendance were Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, Carter's mom Gloria, and pals Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow. The wedding party then moved on to the rap mogul's luxury New York penthouse apartment in the TriBeCa area of the city, where a marquee had been erected on a terrace at the building. The marquee was also decorated with five-foot tall candelabras and 60,000 elegant white orchids, which had been flown in from Thailand at a cost of $500,000. The wedding reception was reportedly attended by more than 200 guests, including producer/music mogul Jermaine Dupri and his girlfriend Janet Jackson, R&B singer Usher, rappers Wyclef Jean and Kanye West, producer Pharrell Williams, Jennifer Hudson and Jamie Foxx. And the low-key wedding celebration was exactly what the couple had in mind. On Friday, the source told People.com, "It happened earlier this evening. Jay wanted it to be a really private affair - close friends and family." But the newlyweds, who have been dating since 2002, will not have time for a honeymoon just yet - Carter is currently in the middle of a North American tour with hip-hop/soul queen Mary J. Blige. Instead, the couple is reportedly set to celebrate their nuptials at a luxury $8,000 a-night hotel on the Caribbean island of Anguilla later this year (08).
Darryl Keith Henley was a cornerback in the NFL. He was drafted by the Los Angeles Rams in the 1989 draft from UCLA. In his career he played in 76 games, he amassed 12 interceptions.
Currently, Henley is serving a 41 year sentence for trafficking cocaine and for attempting to take out a murder contract on the judge from his cocaine trial.
Henley was a sophisticated drug trafficker who seduced a Rams cheerleader and tricked her into carrying his cocaine across the country, a prosecutor said.
This week was a BIG week for Sneakerheads across the country. The NYPOST reported that cops seized 4.5 million worth of sneakers in Queens this week. This is only a dent in all of the fake sneakers that are out there but it is still good news to me. One thing that a lot of people don’t realize is that a lot of reatilers sell these fake sneakers in their store, VERY credible stores that are not worth trying to blow up on here. So look twice when you go into a store to buy some sneakers regardless of the name of the store.
There's this crazy jump-off Michael Jordan used to date named Lisa Miceli who's been stalking him ever since he dumped her. She even has a website claiming she was his long-time mistress and details their relationship complete with claims that Michael fathered her child. Anyway, back in 2005 Mike took TWO paternity tests, which both came back negative, plus sued her for harassment and filed a restraining order against her, so why is Lisa demanding a third paternity test and asking the judge to lift the restraining order Jordan filed against her, claiming the order prevents her from negotiating a child-support agreement settlement with Michael? "There is not going to be a settlement," Michael's lawyer told the judge last Friday. "Mr. Jordan is not the father of her child, and we're not going to engage in any discussions on that."

Beyoncé Knowles and longtime beau Jay-Z have taken out a marriage license in Scarsdale, N.Y., PEOPLE has learned.
According to a source, the pair took out a license on Tuesday morning. The document is valid for 60 days.
A rep for Beyoncé told PEOPLE, "No comment." Jay-Z's spokesperson could not be reached for comment.
Beyoncé, 26, and Jay-Z, 38, have been dating since 2002, though the couple have stood reluctant to discuss their relationship publicly. Rumors about their romance began circulating after the singer appeared on Jay-Z's song "'03 Bonnie & Clyde," followed by collaborations on Beyoncé 's solo hit "Crazy In Love," in 2003.
