A man with special needs is speaking out after he was left badly bruised by police. Twenty-two-year-old Gilberto Powell, who has Down Syndrome, is left with horrible bruises and scars on his face after he had an encounter with police outside his home.
The devastated mother of a 4-year-old boy who was killed in a drunken hit-and-run accident is facing more jail time than her son’s killer because she was jaywalking during the accident.
Raquel Nelson, 30, could get up to three years behind bars after being convicted on July 12 of second-degree vehicular homicide, reckless conduct, and failure to use a crosswalk during the incident in April 2010.
Nelson and her three children had gotten off a bus in Marietta, Ga., after a shopping trip. They were hurrying across a four-lane highway when drunken ex-con Jerry Guy plowed into the family with his van, killing 4-year-old A.J.
Nelson and another daughter were injured, while another daughter was unhurt.
Guy, who already had two other hit-and-run convictions, pleaded guilty last year and has already served six months in the slammer.
He was released on Oct. 29 and he’s on probation for five years.
Nelson will be sentenced on Tuesday.
“I’ve had to accept that he’s gotten six months,” Nelson said Monday in an emotional interview on NBC’s “Today” show. “There’s nothing I can do about it.”
“I’ve had to forgive that portion of it. However, I think to come after me so much harder than they did him, it’s a slap in the face. This will never end for me,” she said.
Hip-hop mogul Jay-Z along with his mother Gloria and sister Andrea have secretly invested in a buffalo wing outlet in Brooklyn called Buffalo Boss.
The family of a 7-year-old girl killed in a Detroit police raid has sued A&E Television Networks over the videotaping of the invasion. The lawsuit says the network and a production crew filming for “The First 48″ cable television series were responsible for the May 16 death of Aiyana Stanley-Jones, who was shot in the head during the raid. It claims that Detroit police were encouraged “to conduct an illegal, overly aggressive, and unnecessary raid” on the home.
According to Jay-Z, he is ready to start a family and thinks Orlando would be a great place to do so. Pop the top for the details.
In a recent interview Jay said this:
is gritty and real and helped shape both my music and my life, but Orlando—Orlando has it all,” said the 40-year-old recording artist. “Plenty of shops, amazing restaurants, and you’re only minutes away from Universal Studios. Plus, Orlando is just a really great place to raise a family.” Jay-Z went on to declare that if you could make it in Kissimmee–St. Cloud, you could probably make it anywhere.
Damn Bey, we hope you are taking note ’cause Jay continues to throw hints in every damn interview, and we are tired of seeing him look stupid.
