Oops upside the head

Murder Inc.'s money laundering trial has taken a surprising turn involving 50 Cent.
My intention was to stay as detached as possible from the Murder Inc. trial, but it's already too dramatic to easily dismiss. According to SOHH.com, days 3 and 4 of the record label's money laundering trial has turned into a sideshow about who shot 50 Cent.
In an effort to establish the close ties between the Inc.'s CEO Irv Gotti and kingpin "Supreme" McGriff, the prosecution has presented text messages the two exchanged when 50 Cent was shot, alleging the messsages prove they were behind the rapper's shooting. And, the prosecution's theory goes, if they could collaborate on an attempted murder, they certainly could launder money together through the once top-dog music label.
After listening to the prosecution's text evidence and argument, the judge decided not to allow this testimony to be presented to the jury, saying it was a distraction that had nothing to do with the money laundering case. I know that Fiddy is relieved as hell not to be any further embroiled in this mess.
In the past, 50 Cent has said the person who shot him was someone with no ties to Murder Inc. I'm reminded of that rhyme popularized by Wyclef Jean (and others): Everytime I try to get out, they keep pulling me in.

CNN decorates America's top war anti-hero, Dick Cheyney, with an ugly X.

First Condi Rice is demon-eyezed by the Washington Post, now this: Dick Cheyney is visibly nixed by CNN with a big "X" during a televised speech on Monday. Garsh, some people just can't take a hint. Condi Rice 'demon-eyezed' by Washington Post.

But when Bush fell off the heezy fasheezy, it was all his own doing -- not that of any media organization. Hmmm, we'll stay tuned to see what happens next with this trio. George Bush took a tumble off his segue.  But played it off, played it cool. If we're lucky, maybe White House doors will start hitting them hard in the backside.

How the hell can a grown woman -- a doggone teacher-- romantically pursue her 14-year-old male student, repeatedly have sex with him, get busted, and yet get off scot free? This, according to the Washington Post, is how it happened for blonde bombshell Debra Lafave, sick-azz teacher of the year:
Pretty child molester gets kid glove treatment?The boy said he and Lafave, a newlywed at the time, got to know each other on their way back from a class trip to SeaWorld Orlando in May 2004. He also said Lafave told him her marriage was in trouble and that she was aroused by the fact that having sex with him was not allowed.
Debra Lafave's attorney argued that she was "too pretty" to be sent to prison, that she'd be raw meat for the lady inmates. The victim's mother said the media scrutiny was just too much for her son and family, so wanted the case dismissed. So off skips Mrs. Lafave into the sunset with a mere slap on the wrist. She loses her teaching credential, cannot come near a school, undergoes house arrest and then probation.
So a ditzy damsel in distress does disgusting immoral deed and she's rescued from the big bad lesbian wolves? Only if she's a perky blonde, apparently. Seems to me time in the slammer might have fit right in with her sexual appetite. Moreover, though there's an order preventing her from making money from her exposed deviant behavior, I'll bet she shows up nude in a magazine or movie before you can holla Michael Jackson.
What is this double double-standard? I won't even go into the obvious argument, "What if she'd been a male teacher who'd done this to a kid?" Just let the record show that if I had been that out-of-control teacher, my sexy black woman buns would be under the jail by now, and rightly so.
Lord, America is going to hell in a handbasket.

it's crazy them text messages innit? will be (has been) the undoing of a lot of folks.

now the teacher and the 14 year old dude. hmmm. does she deserve jail time? yes. but then we live in two societies anyway. not surprised. as ignorant as it may sound I'm quite the sure the boy aint worried. probably "the man" amongst his peers.

obi,
every angle of this teacher sex situation says that "equality" between the sexes and races looks good on paper, but clearly isn't practiced.

what gets me is that once again the "damsel" is placed upon a pedalstal.

the damsel disappears in aruba or disappears prior to her fairytale wedding, and there's a media tsunami of coverage.

but a pregnant black girl in philly disappears and it's like having to push Planet Earth over to the left to get the media's attention/support.

the saddest thing in the world is that here in chicago, two adorable little black sisters, like 4 and 6 in age, went missing years ago from their home. the lack of commitment to keep shining a light on these precious babies is heartbreaking.

"equality" is an Orwellian hoax.

ps - agree. the boy will likely be slapping fives into adulthood about his "student achievement." this particular double-think underscores the different rules and roles that define manhood vs. womanhood.

Hmmm, never heard that defense used for black and hispanic women. Strange. Ain't I a woman?

Now now, take heart. It's not just blondes being kept out of jail, brunettes are also being kept out of jail...even after they killed two children because, as the defense says, "what good would it do?"

But what, I pray, of the redheads? Won't somebody PLEASE think of the redheads!?

Hmmm- I think ALL of these white women are getting off too damn easy... In the past 10 years, there has been at least 5 white females charged with this behavior! If it were a male teacher, no one would be debating the 'circumstances'- he would be called a PEDOPHILE and there would be no discussion of redemption.

This isn't a double-edge sword, this is outright INEQUALITY. I guess only men have the ability to be 'deviants'... women have 'mitigating circumstances'...
