In December 2019, the Louisville Metro Police Department formed a new unit called the Place-Based Investigations (PBI). The PBIs first task was to clean up Elliot Avenue which was reported to have a string of drug-related crimes. On January 2020, the PBI began investigating Adrian Walker and Jamarcus Glover. The latter was the ex-boyfriend of Breonna Taylor. The two men were purportedly involved in the distribution of narcotics. Taylor had an on-and-off relationship with Glover since 2016 and she was suspected of being involved.

An ominous warning and fabrications

Glover later revealed police pressured him into to moving out of Taylor’s residence for unspecified reasons…

It seems social media won’t be letting up with fake news any time soon.

Earlier today, the Conservative website, Blunt Force Truth released an expose which paints Biden as a pawn in the pockets of “Big Pharma”.

On Thursday, the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) froze Trump’s former drug policy which required community health centers to pass on all their insulin and epinephrine discount savings to patients.

Why the rule was implemented in the first place

The HHS, under Trump, argued that [community health] centers that didn’t pass on the savings to patients wouldn’t qualify for federal grants.

This was done in an effort to…

(Author’s Note: The alleged victim in Albert Wilson’s case is not publicly known at this time. She will be referred to by the alias “Ruby” throughout the article.)

Sometime during November 2016, then-Kansas University student Albert Wilson was taken from his home to a police station for an interview.

Wilson confirmed his identity in photos taken from a surveillance camera at a bar a month prior. A year later, Wilson was arrested and arraigned for the rape of “Ruby”.

Wilson’s case has some inconsistencies and legal missteps. Many have compared it to a very similar and popular case which brings…

When The Predator (2018) was announced — expectations weren’t very hig cb h.

There was some glimmer of hope, however, as the uncredited script doctor Shane Black, who stars as the radioman Rick Hawkins in the original film, was one of the writers recruited for the continuation/re To boot.

However, in between exceedingly bad dialogue; reshoots; casting in which some roles weren’t suitable for certain actors (e.g. …

The South Shall Rise Again…

This time, though, it’ll be through legislation.

What a concept.

Unfortunately, this means passing laws at the state level, where a majority of Republican states face little opposition.

The policies are undeniably meant to target and suppress Black people and minorities and the LGBTQ+ community.

Southern states have long been the butt of jokes as they’re collectively the poster child for overt racism, Confederate flags, incest, poor education, and drugs.

So the bills each state has suggested and/or passed can only amplify that stereotype.

Taunting police could become a crime Kentucky

Although Kentucky never officially joined Florida and Tennessee in secession —…

At a rally in Oshkosh, Wis. August 2020, Former President Donald Trump talked up the idea that the election is rigged if he lost to Joe Biden (a hypothetical situation he previously entertained and would so after the rally).

“We have to win the election. We can’t play games. Go out and vote. Do those beautiful absentee ballots, or just make sure your vote gets counted. Make sure because the only way we’re going to lose this election is if the election is rigged.”

Fast-forward to January 6th 2021 to the Stop The Steal rally in Washington, D.C., headlined none…

I played most of the previous entries and absolutely loved Resident Evil 2 which introduces Resident Evil 4’s main protagonist and newest kid on the block Leon S. Kennedy.

The rookie police officer had to survive a zombie outbreak on his very first day on the job at the Raccoon Police Department. He quickly became a fan favorite.

The second entry itself was not only filled with zombies and new monstrosities — it also included well-throughout puzzles that didn’t feel outright annoying or tedious. …

Although “QAnon Shawmam” Jake Angeii was possibly the most talked about person, aside from Donald Trump, after the assault at the U.S. Capitol — Texas realtor and riot participant Jenna Ryan stood out from the crowd.

She attended the “Stop The Steal” rally headed by the former U.S. President Donald Trump whom she had much admiration and praise for.

Despite the reality settling in that Trump wasn’t going to pardon her and others for the attack — Jenna Ryan remains defiant on social media despite the ongoing criminal investigation for her role in the riot.

She’s playing up the…

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and the show’s guest star Addison Rae, who is best known for her TikTok videos, was met with some backlash online after Rae performed dance moves which is credited to Black creators and Black [pop] culture.

‘Bring It On’ told a surprisingly deeper story about Black creators being ripped off

An integral part of the plot of Bring It On centers around a revelation to the predominantly White cheerleading squad, the Toros.

After an injury sidelines one of their own, the Toros newest recruit, Missy (Eliza Dushku) reveals to the team’s successor, Torrance Shipman (Kirsten Dunst) that their routines were stolen. The team’s predecessor “Big Red” (Lindsay…

It’s a head-scratching move that can only be described as superfluous.

The Biden Administration is set to cancel up to at least $1 Billion in student loans (this is not to be confused with student loan forgiveness).

But here’s the kicker: this will only be applicable to around 72,000 students. And more importantly — we already have programs in place that let’s borrowers seek relief through the U.S. Department of Education by arguing either the college they attended closed unexpectedly; they were misled/coerced or ineligible at the time; or they were ripped off by their institution through deceptive practices e.g. promises of a career after graduating, hidden fees, etc.

While the…
