NYPD Union Lawyers Say Eric Garner’s Obesity Killed Him, Not The Chokehold
According to the Washington Post, NYPD union lawyers believe Eric Garner’s poor health ultimately led to his death, not Officer Daniel Pantaleo’s chokehold.

Pantaleo’s attorney pleaded with the court that his client should be cleared of all fault because Garner “died from being morbidly obese.”

“He was a ticking time bomb that resisted arrest,” London said during an administrative hearing. “If he was put in a bear hug, it would have been the same outcome.”

In 2014, Pantaleo tried to restrain Garner with a “chokehold” that compressed his throat and chest, triggering a fatal asthma attack while Staten Island police officers attempted to arrest the Garner for selling loose cigarettes.

Pantaleo reportedly has been on desk duty since the death and in order to fire him, the NYPD needs to prove that Pantaleo used a chokehold forbidden by the department in a way that counts as criminal conduct.

Jay Z’s Legal Team Representing Black Phoenix Family
After a Phoneix family’s shocking encounter with police went viral, they’re getting support from high places.

As previously reported Dravon Ames and his fiancé Iesha Harper were driving with their daughters, ages 1 and 4, before they were terrorized by police. Officers approached the family after the 4-year-old slipped a Barbie into her backpack unbeknownst to the parents.

Police overreacted to the alleged theft and pulled out their guns threatening to kill Iesha who’s currently pregnant, in front of her children. An officer also told Dravon “I’m going to put a cap in your a**, I’m gonna shoot you in your (expletive) face” before pulling him out of the car, kicking him in the right leg, and punching him in the back.

Now Jay Z’s Roc Nation legal team, Team ROC, is swooping in to help (pro bono!) as the family pursues a $10 million lawsuit against the city of Phoenix. The couple says the officers committed battery, unlawful imprisonment, false arrest and infliction of emotional distress in addition to violating their civil rights.

AZ Central reports that Team ROC is not only providing legal support, Team ROC’s calling for the termination of the police officers and “ensuring the well-being of the children,” according to Didier Morais, a PR spokesperson for the organization.

Team ROC has secured high-profile attorney Alex Spiro to join the family’s legal team and they’re planning to pursue a child neglect charge against one of the officers.

“There is no place for that behavior in our world – let alone our justice system – and we are calling for the immediate termination of the police officers in question,” said Roc Nation Managing Director of Philanthropy Dania Diaz. “We are committed to supporting the family to ensure that justice is served.”

In case you forgot, Team ROC is known for getting results. The legal team stepped in to stop the deportation of 21 Savage.

Kudos to Roc Nation for helping this family get the justice they deserve.

A Mississippi Restaurant Is Under Fire After An Employee Referred To Customers As “Black B**ches” On Their Receipt

Mississippi Restaurant Is Facing Backlash For One Employee’s Racism
One employee working the drive-thru window at a restaurant in Mississippi ended up being fired on Monday after printing a derogatory name on a Black customer’s receipt.

According to Alexia Washington, she and a friend visited Who Dat’s on Friday night and placed a meal order, but once they saw what was on the receipt, they were disgusted. “Something told me to look at my receipt,” Washington said, according to WMC Action News. Printed at the top of the receipt were the words “Black b**ches in silver car.”

She said she immediately reported the inappropriate text to the manager at Who Dat’s, who made the employee apologize–But of course, she was still disturbed by the worker’s hateful message, which is why she decided to post a picture of it on her Facebook page.

“My car isn’t silver, for one,” Washington wrote in the now-deleted post. “For two, I wasn’t rude. I didn’t have any type of hostility. He didn’t have any hostility with me.” She went on to explain her decision to share the message on social media, saying she “wasn’t going to say anything and [was going to] give them the opportunity to do right, but nothing has been done,” according to the Clarion Ledger.

Washington claims she had requested that the employee who printed the slur on the receipt be fired, as she felt “racially ridiculed and demeaned as a African American Female.” When her messages to the restaurant’s higher-ups seemed to be ignored, that is when she decided to go public.

“I seek justice for this hate crime and I will no longer remain silent,” she wrote on Facebook. “I’ve lived in Oxford for 5 years and I’m still having to deal with this type of ignorance. I’m not a rude or hateful person. I was not rude when I was at this establishment and was greeted with this kind of service. I will not stand for it.”

Luckily for Washington, her decision to go public with the whole scenario paid off, as Who Dat’s posted a reply to the customer’s post, assuring her that the employee had indeed been fired. The restaurant’s owner, Wylie Coleman, even met with with Washington face to face after that.

In a lengthy note posted to the restaurant’s Facebook, Coleman wrote that he sat down with Washington for an hour and a half on Tuesday “in shock and remorse” to discuss “a broad range of issues and goals in our lives as we work through the summer.” He said he and Washington “have so much common ground.” Coleman called the racist receipt “no joke” and “a vivid insult describing oppression which stabs four-five immediate generations.” He said he couldn’t explain the employee’s action and that it “did not represent us as a business or [personally].”

He also declared that the decision to terminate and ban the employee was a joint one made with Washington, as it would be “the only way to move forward.” He added, “From the bottom of my heart I would like to apologize to the young ladies that were attacked by this injustice. We have a lot of work to do as humans and representative[s] of the community.”


#JusticeForJunior : All 5 Suspects Were Found Guilty Of The Murder Of Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz

There’s Finally Justice For Junior
According to The New York Post, a Bronx jury convicted five gangbangers of the mistaken identity murder of Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz in a bodega last year.

The perps were found guilty of ALL four charges that each of them faced; including first-degree murder, second-degree murder, second-degree conspiracy and second-degree gang assault. They are among a crowd of some one dozen accused young gang members who allegedly surrounded him outside a bodega on East 183rd Street.

Guzman-Feliz, 15, was struck multiple times with knives and machetes; a single knife stab to the neck tragically claimed his life, a coroner testified. Prosecutors testified that Junior “fought like hell” to escape his killers, who mistook him being part of the rival Sunset gang.

He ran to St. Barnabas Hospital but collapsed and died before getting help for his injuries.

Juniors mother spoke after the trial saying:

“I’m not going to have my son back. But those killers, those murderers, they were going to be outside killing another kid,” Junior’s mother Leandra Feliz said. “My son was a good kid. He only was 15 years old. He was doing the best in the school at the time when that tragedy happened. He was in the [NYPD] Explorers program. He was a really good kid. He never been into an#Juy problem in his life until those killers murdered my son.”

“The message going through to the people, see what happened to those killers,” she said. “If they continue to do violence in the city, they’re going to get the same thing.”

Raptors Executive Is Being Investigated For Allegedly Assaulting A Cop
According to ESPN, the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office is investigating Toronto Raptors President of Basketball Operations Masai Ujiri for suspicion of misdemeanor battery on a police officer.

The alleged incident occurred after Game 6 at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California, following the Raptors beat the Golden State Warriors to win the NBA title. Ujiri reportedly tried to join the team on the floor, but was stopped by a deputy. Ujiri watched the end of the championship game on television outside the Raptors’ locker room with other team executives. He then walked down the tunnel to the floor to join the on-court celebration with his team.

UPDATE: @Raptors statement on incident after #NBAFinals Game 6 involving team president and @ACSOSheriffs deputy.
“The incident is being looked at, and we are cooperating with authorities. We look forward to resolving the situation.”

A spokesman for the sheriff’s office, Sgt. Ray Kelly, said:

“Mr. Ujiri was unknown to the deputy at that time. He [the deputy] asked him for a credential,” “He shoved the deputy out of the way and walked toward the court. The deputy pushed back. The president came forward more with a more significant push and ended up striking the deputy in the face.”

The sheriff’s office is gathering information on what occurred, talking to witnesses and members of the security teams as well as gathering available video, Kelly said Friday.

Rob Kardashian Refuses To Allow Dream On Blac Chyna Show
Rob Kardashian isn’t really here for Blac Chyna’s clout-chasing shenanigans.

According to TMZ, Chyna wants to put her 2-year-old daughter Dream on full reality TV blast and Rob ain’t trying to hear it. Chyna sent Rob release forms to sign and his lawyer Marty Singer replied with a letter threatening major legal action if Chyna tries to proceed without Rob’s consent.

Rob and Chyna have 50/50 custody of Dream and there is absolutely nothing that Chyna can do without his blessing.

Outside of the drama that he has already gone through with his buxom, blonde, baby mama, Rob’s own experience with reality TV hasn’t exactly been 5-stars. He doesn’t want his daughter exposed to the long days of shooting, staging lights, and everything else that comes along with f***ery production.

“Should The Zeus Network proceed with releasing any episodes of the Series or related materials containing Dream’s likeness, it will be acting at its own peril and exposing itself to significant liability.”

Can’t really blame Rob. Chyna just fought her mother and hairdresser in just a matter of weeks.
