Michael Brown: Shooting Officer on Paid Administrative Leave

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?

Kanye West: Best Album of the 21st Century, or Nah?

As heard in the past, Kanye West refers to himself as a creative genius. According to GQ magazine, West’s album; My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy -released in 2010- was named the best album of the 21st century. In the article, this is rationalized by the impact that the project has had; it also explains how powerful all of West’s projects have been.

“It could’ve been any one of the seven albums West released this century,” GQ says. “A portrait of a man seizing the spotlight, drowning in it, and then somehow finding a way to turn that harrowing experience into art. Anybody who wants to be famous or make music for a living—or do both at the same time—should be forced to listen to MBDTF first. The rest of us are free to enjoy it for the bloody, hard-won, titanic achievement that it is.”

In 2010, the album was reviewed by HipHopDX’s Editor-In-Chief at the time, Jake Paine; where it earned a 4.5 out of a 5.

“From nine-minute douchebag manifestos, to enlisting an A-list Grammy ensemble to piece-mealing his album out to the masses every Friday. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy defies logic and it ignores convention. Whether it’s acknowledging his mistakes, measuring his might, or fantasizing of wifing Kristina Rose, Kanye West finds a way to relate to all. He’s not forcing his hand, just reminding us that the biggest star we appointed in the last five years can still recognize our own fantasies, insecurities and desire for colorful music from his spaceship,” Paine wrote.

What is your opinion? Do you believe that My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy deserves the tittle of best album?
