Recently, Mayor of New York Bill de Blasio agreed to close the infamous Rikers Island prison over the next 10 years now the state of New York will soon no longer try 16 and 17-year old’s as adults after passing of the “raise the age” law Sunday, April 10th, leaving North Carolina as the only country in the US who treat teenagers as adults in criminal court.
Roughly 28,000 mostly black and latino 16 and 17-year old are arrested each year in New York many for misdemeanors by October 2019, New York will no longer automatically prosecute teenagers as adults diverting many of the cases to family court or judges with special training. Teens arrested on violent felony charges approximately 1 percent of all teenage cases can also have their case diverted depending on the injuries of the victim, if the teen used a weapon and if the teen engaged in sexual conduct. The law changes the rules on housing teen offenders by keeping them to only in juvenile facilities many citing the story of Kalief Browder as an example for the change.
In an address to the state New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said “Putting aside the fact that psychologists will testify that 16- and 17-year-olds often are not mentally mature, the reality of putting a 16- or 17-year-old in the same facility as hardened adult criminals is, on its face, cruel and unusual,”. Studies have shown that juveniles in adult facilities are five times more likely to be sexually assaulted and thirty-six times more likely to commit suicide. Many adult prisons are unequipped to handle the issues of facing teenagers most opting to place them in solitary confinement were studies have shown the confinement does severe damage to both mental and physical health.

During Wale's appearance to promote the release of his Shine LP on The Breakfast Club on Friday, April 29, the D.C. rapper covered a range of personal and professional topics, from his relationship with J. Cole to his adaptation to fatherhood. He also touched on the state of hip-hop today, and when pop star Katy Perry's new collaboration with Migos came up for discussion, he implied that the project seems forced and contrived and that getting them together was a conscientious move by executives.
“Do you think Katy Perry would do a Wale song right now? Nah,” he said. “It’s like some A&R was like okay, ‘These guys, these guys are hot, they’re the Migos, look at this white kid at Coachella man, we’re going to get the White kids, the Black kids.'”
Wale would go on to articulate that he was speaking from a place of yearning for art to be appreciated for its unique qualities and not for its popularity.
The judge overseeing the pretrial proceedings involving Bill Cosby's alleged rape of an employee of his Temple University alma mater has ruled that excerpts from a 2005 deposition, in which he makes mention of the administering of Quaaludes to her, may be used as evidence against him.
Montgomery County Common Pleas Judge Steven O'Neill ruled on two requests pushed forward by the prosecution. In addition to the 2005 deposition, he was asked to rule on whether an excerpt from a book he wrote, titled "Childhood," may be raised during trial. In the book, Cosby at one point makes a reference to "Spanish Fly" that alleged victim Andrea Constand's legal team believes in projecting his the light in which he views date rape drugs. Cosby calls Spanish Fly an "aphrodisiac so potent that it could have made Lena Horne surrender to Fat Albert," in the book. Judge O'Neill would turn down the request of the prosecution to use the excerpt in the trial.
The legal battle erected before Cosby stems from an accusation made by Constand after they had sexual relations in 2004. Constand claims that she had been an invited guest in Cosby's home one evening, having shown up in comfortable clothes per his request. But she says she had no intentions to bed the legendary comedian and didn't anticipate what would happen after she took some pills he offered her to "take the edge off," in light of some personal struggles she had made him aware of at the time. According to Constand, she wound up being sexually assaulted by Cosby that night.
Cosby has maintained that Constand knowingly took the pills and that the sex was consensual. During the '05 deposition that the prosecution will use to challenge him with, Cosby admits to offering drugs that numerous women would accept and consent to taking before they'd lay up with him. The ruling will serve as an obstacle for Cosby's defense, as they attempt to save him from possibly doing 10 or more years in prison. His trial begins on June 5.
Donald Trump's go-to when it comes to deriding Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren is her claim of Native American ancestry that has been mocked by her opposition over the years. There were numerous occasions during the 2016 election season, in which he shot Warren's defense of Hillary Clinton down by alluding to her as "Pocahontas." While many have publicly questioned the intelligence behind casually throwing the derogatory reference around, Trump has carried on, getting chuckles from supporters and provoking less than humored responses from Warren.
On Friday, April 28, President Trump again called Warren out her name, while speaking before a crowd of NRA members in Atlanta. He did so while using a fear tactic to spook the crowd into fathoming Warren being his possible successor, stating "it may be Pocahontas," who takes office next and reminding those in attendance that "She is not big on the NRA."
Warren has been receiving flack about her identity since 2012 when during her run for the Mass. senate seat, opponent Scott Brown accused her of simply listing herself as Native American to gain advantages throughout her educational, professional and political career. Warren has defended that she was raised to embrace her Native American roots by her parents, and thus openly claims such, so that she may identify with the greater Native American community/society.
After witnessing a devastating accident while headed to work on the Interstate 65 freeway on Tuesday morning, April 25, AJ Calvin of Mobile discovered that the entire thing had been recorded by his dash cam. And in playing the video over, the Alabama resident noticed something freakish that happened, when he saw one of the survivors instantaneously come to his feet and walk away from the wreck.
According to Calvin, the Jeep seen flipping over at top speed had been going way too fast alongside the speedy red car that it would collide with. "I said to myself, 'Somebody’s going to get in a wreck,'" Calvin told a local Fox station. Sure enough, there was a wreck. What was most stunning though was how one of the Jeep's passengers was ejected as the vehicle came apart, and appeared seemingly uninjured and unscathed.
Witnesses are said to have soon came to the assistance of another individual in the Jeep, while the driver of the red car is reported to have escaped injury.
