For the last 11 months, Gucci Mane has remained behind bars awaiting the verdict of a firearms charge that came from an incident last September. On August 20th, the judge made the final ruling.
As Gucci pleaded guilty to possession of a Glock 40-caliber handgun and 11 rounds of ammunition, he was sentenced to 39 months in jail, and another three years of probation. The judge also recommended that “the rapper serve his sentence in a west coast prison with a drug rehab program to allow him to get away from local influences in Atlanta.”
Although Gucci has served 11 months already, he has 28 more to go. It’s predicted that he will get out in December 2016. In spite of his sentence, the U.S. District Court Judge Steve Jones told GuWop that, even though he is unfamiliar with the ATL rapper’s music, “young people- my nieces and nephews- tell me you are quite cool.”
What is your opinion about this? Is it fair that Gucci serves another 28 months on top of his already served 11? Or nah?

For the first time, the Highway Patrol captain in charge of security in raging Ferguson, Missouri; is backed by the National Guard. On Monday, they vowed that burglars and vandals would not disrupt “the soul of this community.”
The pledge was made by Capt. Ron Johnson, one day after the worst events yet happened between police and protestors who are protesting the police shooting death of unarmed African-American teenager Michael Brown.
“Tonight, we will ensure the safety of the citizens of Ferguson, the visitors to Ferguson, the business of Ferguson,” Capt. Ron Johnson stated. “We will not allow vandals, criminal elements, to impact the safety and security of this community.”
Gov. Jay Nixon ordered the National Guard to provide additional security to the town. Later the governor added that the National Guard’s mission is limited to protecting the officers already in place.
Nixon also added that the midnight-to-five a.m. curfew would be lifted. The governor added that police and protestors fought both nights that the curfew was in place. This fighting turned into robbery, vandalism and an attempt to take over the law enforcement command center and law enforcement officers were also targeted by gunfire.

An unarmed teenager, Michael Brown was shot by a police officer in St. Louis, Missouri four days ago. As tension continues to run high, the Brown family awaits the result of the investigation.
The 18-year-old from Ferguson, was shot and killed by a police officer on August 9th, 2014; as he was walking to visit his grandmother. Brown was unarmed at the time.
St. Louis County Police Chief, Jon Belmar, said there was a physical confrontation between Brown, the police officer and Brown’s friend Dorian Johnson. They claim that Brown had pushed the officer into his squad car and that he attempted to grab his gun, before the shots were fired. The officer has been working for the Ferguson Police Department for six years.
According to Johnson, he and Brown were walking in the middle of the street when the police officer pulled up and demanded that they get on the sidewalk. He also added that there was a verbal confrontation, as the young men turned to flee the scene; the police officer began to shoot his gun.
The men began running as they heard the shots, once Brown felt the second shot he turned around and put his hands in the air as he began to get down, the officer approached and fired several more shots.
According to the police station, the officer is on administrative paid leave. What is your opinion about this case? Should the officer be convicted or not?
