Snoop from HBO’s The Wire will be called as a witness to a murder that took place in 2005 in Baltimore, Maryland. Allegedly she was present when the stabbing death of Tyrell Roseborough took place on “The Block” outside of a New York Fried Chicken. An alleged accomplice of hers, Steven Lashley is being charged with the body. According to authorities,
“The argument appears to have started because Tyrell attempted to ‘holler’ at Felicia Pearson and she rebuffed him,” Baltimore homicide detective Todd Corriveau wrote in a report. “At the time, Lashley and Felicia Pearson were friends and sometimes met with each other/sat in strip clubs on ‘the block.’ ”
The incident jumped off and resulted in the murder of Tyrell, the stabbing of his brother Raymond and friend Stanley Thomas. Authorities have a statement made by Snoops denying any involvement in the incident. CLICK HERE to see the full report.
Artist Daniel Edwards has created a bootyful bronze sculpture of a curvaceous and robust Oprah Winfrey, called, “The Oprah Sarcophagus.” Edwards previously created a life-sized statue of Britney giving birth, and one of a dead Paris Hilton.
It’s safe to say Edwards isn’t one of Big O’s favorite things!
Editor’s Note: I suppose this is the artist’s rendition of a mash-up between King Tut and Venus Hottentot
Residents of a small town in Vermont have drawn up legislation that would designate George Bush and Dick Cheney war criminals and subject them to arrest if they ever passed through Brattleboro, Vermont. The petition goes to ballot on March 4, and already the strong language has set off a firestorm of backlash from angered Americans who have caught wind of the bold move. Political dissent isn’t new in Vermont, in fact the State Senate even voted to support impeachment of the President and VP last year and unfortunately the referendum doesn’t empower town police to enforce an actual arrest of the “Disastrous Duo” but it is stirring the pot of sentiments. Below is an excerpt of the drafted petition:
It reads: “Shall the Selectboard instruct the Town Attorney to draft indictments against President Bush and Vice President Cheney for crimes against our Constitution, and publish said indictments for consideration by other authorities and shall it be the law of the Town of Brattleboro that the Brattleboro Police, pursuant to the above-mentioned indictments, arrest and detain George Bush and Richard Cheney in Brattleboro if they are not duly impeached, and prosecute or extradite them to other authorities that may reasonably contend to prosecute them.”

Detroit’s “Hip Hop” Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick has landed himself in a pile of mess amidst allegations that he lied under oath about an alleged affair he was having with his Chief of Staff, Ms. Christine Beatty. On Jan. 30 he made a passionate plea to Detroit residents in a televised address from an empty church, accompanied by his wife who sat by his side. Without directly implicating himself, Kilpatrick admitted to the people that he was, “accountable” for the accusations being hurled his way. Apparently, text messages surfaced dating back to ’02 and ’03 that contradict the statements Kilpatrick made under oath. In one the Mayor wrote, “I’ve been dreaming all day about having you all to myself for 3 days. Relaxing, laughing, talking, sleeping and making love.” The Chief of Staff has recently resigned but Kilpatrick is determined to remain Mayor for the rest of his term. Prosecutors are weighing whether or not to bring charges against the embattled Mayor. A conviction for lying under oath carries a stiff fifteen joints in the penile.

When you thought it could get no worse…a House science subcommittee recently released a report stating that FEMA lied about the exposure of toxins in its emergency trailers supplied to Hurricane Katrina and Rita survivors. The lawmakers are alleging FEMA “ignored, hid and manipulated government research on the potential impact of long-term exposure to formaldehyde.” They also presented documents alleging that CDC was “complicit in giving FEMA precisely what they wanted” in regards to suppressing the dangers that the formaldehyde posed in the trailers. Scientist have reported that ANY exposure to the toxin over ANY amount of time is hazardous. There are still 40,000 families still residing in FEMA trailers throughout America.
