CONVICTED entertainer Vybz Kartel told the police the whereabouts of several wanted men in Portmore, St Catherine The move by the embattled entertainer was part of an effort to gain his freedom, or at least a vastly reduced prison sentence, the police said.

The startling revelation came to light during a Jamaica Observer interview with a member of the constabulary’s top brass late last week.

“He wanted to meet with the commissioner who assigned a member of the high command to meet him. During the meeting he offered information on wanted men in Portmore and also coughed up a number of illegal firearms. He was trying to broker a deal to get the charges dropped,” the source said.

50 Cent to Play Informant in New Movie

via SOHH

Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson‘s role in the upcoming film Caught in the Crossfire has been revealed online with the rapper starring as a police informant.50cent

The name of the character the G-Unit leader plays has been kept under wraps, but Fif has spoken on his reaction to filming in Michigan.

The movie has a police theme, with officers searching out crooked cops with the help of a police informant, played by 50 Cent. The movie’s directors and crew are keeping a lot of their work under wraps. But the stars say they are enjoying their time in Grand Rapids. “It’s quiet enough for me to enjoy myself,” 50 said. “It’s laid back out here. It’s not so much going on that I’m uncomfortable being out and about.” (WZZM News)

Fif’s latest film project will reportedly focus on corrupt police officers.

Brian Miller, director and writer of the film, said Grand Rapids was an obvious choice to film, even without the state’s new incentives for filmmakers. The film, he said, is a story about two police officers and criminal informant who are caught in the crossfire between a gang-related retaliation and their own police department, with the life of a child in the balance. “It’s a gut-wrenching thriller,” Miller said. “It’s a h*ll of a cast we put together.” (Michigan Live) Continue reading

MAY 5–Billed as the protégé of rapper/gun enthusiast T.I., Cedric “Alfamega” Zellars is a convicted felon whose songs brag about his status as an “original gangster” and contain de rigeur references to police tape, automatic weapons, and murder.

Zellars, who records for T.I.’s Grand Hustle Entertainment, is a hulking 6′ 4″, calls himself “The Grand Hustle Muscle,” and proclaims, “I’m a real hood.” What he does not mention, though, is his prior work as a Drug Enforcement Administration informant who snitched out criminal cohorts and testified as a government witness at the trial of an Atlanta heroin trafficker.

Rogue FBI agent who inspired ‘The Departed’ jailed for 40 years for killing witness set to testify against the Mob

A rogue FBI agent has been jailed for 40 years for killing a witness who was about to testify against the Mob.departed1

A judge told FBI agent John Connolly he had ‘crossed over to the dark side’.

The former agent’s decision to switch sides was said to be the inspiration  for  the character played by Matt Damon in the hit film ‘The Departed.’

Damon played a Massachusetts State Trooper detective who supplied his Mob   connections with information.

During a two-month trial in Miami, Florida, a jury heard that Connolly, 68, was on the Mafia payroll – receiving money from notorious Mob leader James ‘Whitey’ Bulger  who ran the Winter Hill gang in Boston in the 1980s.

Bulger is the FBI’s second-most wanted fugitive after Osama bin Laden and is being sought for involvement in 19 murders.

The court heard that Connolly would supply his Mob connections with tip-offs about police raids and leak the names of informants.

He was convicted of the 1982 murder of businessman John Callahan, whose bullet-riddled body was found in the boot of a car at Miami  Airport.

Connolly told his mob connections that 45-year-old Callaghan was preparing to give evidence against the notorious Winter Hill gang in Boston.

A ‘hit’ was taken out on the father-of-two before he could implicate Bulger.

Connolly has denied being a corrupt agent.

He said: ‘I never sold my badge. I never took anybody’s money. I never  caused  anybody to be hurt, at least not knowingly, and I never would.’

Web site lets kids report school bullies incognito

My question is how is this information verfied to be true. What if a kid mis-reports being bullied as some type of revenge against a classmate. What do you guys think?

via Yahoo

SALT LAKE CITY – Hoping to combat the “snitch” label that often leads to silent suffering, six Utah schools have introduced a Web site that allows students to anonymously report bullies.

A Brigham Young University student, Justin Bergener, created the site, which also lets students post information about thefts, drugs and harassment.

Bergener said he hopes students who might otherwise be too scared or shy to speak up will be willing to post on the site.

“There really is this culture and code of silence that’s particularly prevalent in middle schools and high schools,” Bergener said.

Was Jena Six a Fix?

 The embattled attorney Alton Maddox recently wrote a very introspective piece about the Jena Six and the apparent fix that was in by his attorneys and Civil Rights collaborators.  He posed a lingering question that none of the leaders have been poised to answer, “Why not argue double jeopardy on Michael Bell’s account?”  Several other points were made that would argue that any capable lawyer would be able to mount an effective defense, instead of allowing Michael Bell to cop a plea and agree to become state’s witness against his co-defendants.  Maddox defines thhis as the “one of the worst sellouts in our 400 years in North America as enslaved Africans.”  To get more of an insight on these claims being made, click HERE.
