A Pennsylvania judge, who attorney Joe Tacopina believes has a personal vendetta against Meek Mill, has sentenced the rapper to two to four years behind bars for violating his probation.
In a bizarre recount to TMZ, Tacopina alleges their long-standing beef dates back to an incident in which Common Pleas Court Judge Genece E. Brinkley asked Meek to perform a remake of Boyz II Men’s “On Bended Knee” that included a shout-out to her. When Meek laughed it off (because how could she be serious???) she allegedly said “Okay, suit yourself,” and bias was born. Meek and Tacopina reportedly plan to appeal. Meanwhile, Jay Z is definitely feeling a way about all of this.
The American Psychological Association is condemning Trump for his remarks regarding the Texas church shooting being a “mental health problem,” The Hill reports.
“Calling this shooting a ‘mental health problem’ distracts our nation’s leaders from developing policies and legislation that would focus on preventing gun violence through a scientific, public health approach,” APA President Antonio E. Puente said in a statement Monday. “A complex combination of risk factors, including a history of domestic violence, violent misdemeanor crimes and substance use disorders, increases the likelihood of people using a firearm against themselves or others.”
Puente noted that Devin Patrick Kelley, the suspected gunman, showed “several of these red flags.”
NYPD cop Wayne Isaacs was acquitted Monday in the murder of Delrawn Smalls, the Brooklyn motorist he fatally shot in July 2016 for getting out of his car.
Isaacs walked away free after jurors deliberated three days on murder and manslaughter charges, The NY Daily News reports.
“This is a guy we need to get off the streets,” Victor Dempsey, Small’s brother, said. “He cannot represent the NYPD. He cannot represent law enforcement. He can’t. He should have been held accountable today but unfortunately he wasn’t. Now I’ve got to stand with my family and look at them in the eye and not know how to explain what just happened.”
