All Four Officers Charged in the George Floyd Case

Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison announced today that the charges against former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, have been upgraded to second-degree murder. He is now charged with second-degree murder without intent, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter. Chauvin’s bail has also increased from $500,000 to $1 million.

Charges have also been filed against the other three officers, J. Alexander Kueng, Tou Thao, and Thomas Lane. They are currently charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter. Their bail has also been set to $1 million and they’ve all been fired from their jobs.

According to FOX 9 News in Minneapolis, Chauvin wasn’t the only officer holding George Floyd down. Lane and Kueng were also on Floyd while Thao stood nearby and watched.

Now that all four officers are charged this is the first step on a long journey for justice. Ellison reminded everyone that this process will take time and getting justice of George Floyd will not be easy.

“As it is so hard to do, I now ask for continued patience…this case continues to be under investigation. We will not be able to say very much publicly about the investigation.” Ellison stated.

“Trying this case will not be an easy thing,” Ellison continues. “Winning a conviction will be hard.”

Benjamin Crump, the attorney representing George Floyd’s family, took to Twitter to share the family’s response.

Crump still believes that this is not enough and Chauvin should be charged with first-degree murder. “We cannot celebrate because an arrest is not a conviction and we want justice. We want whole justice,” Crump said.

Frank Ocean’s brother, Ryan Breaux, 18, was in a fatal car crash in Thousand Oaks, California this Sunday. His identity has not yet been confirmed by the medical examiner, but friends on the scene identified him to ABC7 News. An outpouring of support and well-wishes followed. (As well as the usual insensitivity.)

Ellen DeGeneres Might Be Out Of A Job

mm

Published

on

After years of rumors, Ellen’s behind-the-scenes behavior is being shot into the mainstream, and… it isn’t pretty. The national uprisings have made the people bold. We’ve created a culture of protest, and that means workers are starting to speak out about the abuses they’ve faced, knowing that, honestly, it doesn’t get much worse than the lay-offs and cut hours they’ve already faced because of COVID-19. It all started with a Twitter thread:

Soon, the stories started pouring in. Before we knew it, Buzzfeed was busting this story wide open. “Ellen”, apparently, was a toxic work environment where there things like racism were allowed to float about unchecked. There were countless other reports of Ellen being a diva who didn’t want “unauthorized” people looking at her. Hell, they said she didn’t even tell her workers whether they’d be paid during the pandemic. She cried an apology.

Ellen DeGeneres
“Ellen”

This weekend, the nail met the coffin as a number of outlets reported that James Corden was posed to replace Ellen. Nearly all publications were quick to suggest that this is just rumor, since Ellen is set to return to her show soon, but rumors come from somewhere. I’ve worked in and around Hollywood for a long time. Ms. Ellen’s business wouldn’t be in these streets if WarnerMedia wasn’t planning to put her out there with it.

If you wanna learn more. The Washington Post’s nosey ass has all the details. In the meantime, please enjoy these tweets: #TiffanyPollardForEllen

Meek Mill Publicly Announces Breakup With Milano

mm

Published

on

Y’all told Meek Mill to stay out of women’s business, so he decided to get out of Milano’s. Over the weekend, Meek Mill tweeted:

We me and Milano decided to remain friends and build our child as separate parents… we still have mad love for eachother but we both came to a understanding.

-meek-

Now, I would post the actual tweet, but he deleted it after people started clowning him for the “We me” part of the tweet. Others pointed out that Meek continues to find ways to embarrass Milano. You might recall that Meek wasn’t this loud about the fact that the two were even in a relationship until she was pregnant with a child. Even then, he just couldn’t resist fighting it out with Nicki Minaj. He wrote on Twitter:

“My girl is with me pregnant watching me tweet about my ex is very clownish.”

He deleted that tweet as well. But, and I hate to admit it, I agree with Meek Mill. This is all clown behavior. He even went so far as to publicly try to stop people from congratulating Nicki when she announced her pregnancy with the man that she gets to be embarrassed by.

So what have we learned from all this? If your man can’t seem to stay out of another woman’s business, he’s probably not gonna stay in yours.
