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.

For quite some time now, Nicki Minaj and Drake have teased their fans with the idea that there is something between the two. Their on-going flirtation has taken yet another step as Nicki fuels the fire in her latest single “Anaconda.”
As she recently released stills from her video, Nicki appears to be wearing fishnet tights and a bust-bearing bra while giving Drake “the lap dance of a lifetime.”
Between the images, the video clip and the artwork that Nicki released earlier this month, one can only imagine what the “Anaconda” video will turn out like.
The video is scheduled to drop on Wednesday August 20th, 2014.
What do you think? Could there possibly be more between Nicki and Drake? Or could this all be for show?
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?
As you heard last week, Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj have joined forces and dropped a surprise remix of “Flawless” Sunday morning around one a.m. This new single has left the rap blogosphere and twitter completely blown away. What stood out the most to fans is Beyoncé’s verse, “Of course sometimes shit goes down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator,” giving an ending to the infamous elevator tussle between Jay Z and Solange. Then Nicki comes in reminding the world that she herself is hip-hop’s Queen Bee, she recalls the fire that she spat at the end of Kanye’s “Monster” dropped four years ago; and she declares herself as “the queen of rap, slaying with Queen Bey.”
Nicki also dropped her new single Monday morning “Anaconda,” bringing back “Baby Got Back,” dropped in ’92 by Sir Mix-A-Lot. The new single is already trending on Twitter with the hashtag, #AnacondaOnITunes. Early Monday morning the song was No. 4 on iTunes and NO. 1 Hip Hop/Rap. What do you think about both mixes? Is it possible that Nicki has taken over the Hip Hop world?
