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?

Will Drake Get Fired?

The NBA fined the Raptors $25,000 due to a tampering violation by Drake. The rapper invited Kevin Durant to join the team as Durant attended his Toronto music festival.

The NBA is stable in punishing public displays of tampering, yet; according to The Globe and Mail’s Cathal Kelly; there is another way out.

The NBA offered to drop the fine if the team agreed to strip Drake of his title, yet the Raptors refused.

What do you think? Was this truly a second option for the Raptors or was this an opportunity for the league to attempt to run one of the most popular celebrities in the world out of the NBA?

After only a year of dating, Future proposed to Ciara during her 28th birthday celebration. As she talked to magazines she called him her “best friend in the world” yet, months later Us Weekly magazine quotes anonymous “insiders” who claim that he cheated on Ciara and she is out. 

With four baby mama’s already, Ciara should have seen this coming. An inside source added that “She’s devastated. Ciara’s focus now is the baby.”

Drake Costs The Raptors A $25,000 Fine

As rap star Drake made comments about NBA MVP Kevin Durant during his OVO Fest last weekend, the Toronto Raptors have been fined $25,000 for being in violation of anti-tampering rules.

As the official global ambassador for the Raptors, Drake asked the crowd at the concert how they would react if Durant- who is set to become a free agent in 2016- were to play for Toronto. Durant was in town for the concert weekend.

An NBA executive claims in an ESPN report that Durant was a target of what the league calls a public recruiting pitch by the rapper.

“My brother Kevin Durant was kind enough to come to the show tonight and watch us,” Drake said to his fans. “I just want him to see what would happen if he were to come play in Toronto.” The fans went crazy and responded with a thundering “K-D!” chant.

The Raptors, Washington Wizards, New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Lakers are considered contenders for Durant.

Do you think it was right for the Raptors to be fined? Or should Drake be the one to pay?
