    A former college basketball star who was charged with the murder of his four-year-old son after the boy's corpse was found in the family freezer was granted bail Wednesday after having spent six months in a Virginia jail. Kassceen Weaver, 49, will be released from Riverside Regional Jail on a $50,000 secured bond once a GPS monitoring system is installed in his Richmond home.  He is not allowed to have any contact with his wife, Dina Weaver - whom the prosecution claims he abused - or his 10-year-old son, WTVR reported.  Weaver is charged with felony murder and felony child abuse/neglect in connection to the death of his son, Eliel Aldon Weaver, last October. The four-year-old's body - which had been left in a plastic bag in a freezer for two-and-a-half years - was found in May after his concerned uncle asked police to conduct a welfare check.   The boy's mother, Dina, also 49, was charged with conspiracy to conceal a body and failing to render aid to a child. She has been out on bond since May. Despite opposition from the prosecution, a Chesterfield...
    Ben & Jerry’s branded the Kyle Rittenhouse trial another display of the “racist” American justice system, postulating that the trial would be far different if it involved a black teen. This comment comes despite the ice cream company’s demand in 2019 that the criminal justice system view all as “innocent until proven guilty.” “The #RittenhouseTrial displays yet again that our ‘justice’ system is racist,” the Vermont-based company posted Thursday evening on its official Twitter page. “How would this trial be going if he was a Black 17 yr old that crossed state lines illegally carrying an AR-15 and shot 3 white protesters?” the post continues. “We need real justice in the legal system,” the company added. “This isn’t it.” The #RittenhouseTrial displays yet again that our “justice” system is racist.⁰⁰How would this trial be going if he was a Black 17 yr old that crossed state lines illegally carrying an AR-15 and shot 3 white protesters?⁰⁰We need real justice in the legal system.

    The chairman of Nike's successful Jordan brand has revealed he murdered an innocent 18 year-old boy in 1965 while he was a gang member.    Larry Miller, 72, announced Wednesday in a Sports Illustrated interview that he served time in prison after fatally shooting Edward White when he was a 16 year-old member of Philly's Cedar Avenue gang Miller says he took to the streets drunkenly and in search of revenge after one of his friends and fellow gang members was fatally stabbed by a member of the rival 53rd and Pine gang. The business tycoon didn't know White, but wanted to avenge the murder of a fellow gang member, and says he ended up shooting and killing the first person he saw. White did nothing to provoke him, and there's no suggestion he was a member of any other gang. He died on the spot after being shot with a .38 Miller had gotten from his girlfriend.  Explaining himself, Miller said: 'We were all drunk. I was in a haze. Once it kind of set in, I was like, "Oh, sh*t,...

He hadn't engaged in illegal activity. But his innocence didn't matter, he said, because he was Muslim.Muhammad Tanvir, who was living lawfully in the US, said that, in 2007, FBI agents approached him and asked him to consider working as an informant against Muslims. Tanvir refused, but the FBI continued to pressure him over the next several years, eventually placing his name on the no-fly list, he said. Being on the list limited his ability to travel domestically, and made it impossible to travel abroad. He quit his job as a long-haul trucker because he couldn't fly, and alleged that after he bought a ticket to visit his ailing mother in Pakistan, he wasn't allowed to board.Tanvir's experience wasn't unique. In 2013, he and two other men -- Jameel Algibhah and Naveed Shinwari -- filed suit, saying that the FBI had placed them on the no-fly list to coerce them...
    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Republican Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz will not be removed from his committee assignments Thursday, saying he is innocent until proven guilty. During a Thursday press conference, McCarthy was asked if he would pull Gaetz off the House Judiciary Committee after he denied accusations of having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl, to which McCarthy said there are no charges against him and if there are, it will be handled then. “Matt Gaetz is the same as any American, he’s innocent until proven guilty,” McCarthy told reporters. “There’s no charges against him yet.

    Former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi (R) on Monday reacted to the sexual misconduct allegations made against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D). Cuomo has downplayed his actions, saying his jokes were “misinterpreted.” While speaking with FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” Bondi acknowledged Cuomo is “innocent until proven guilty,” but said “at best” his “horrendous behavior” was “completely inappropriate.” “Of course, he is innocent until proven guilty. As a career prosecutor, we all believe that. He is innocent until proven guilty. However, what we know by his own statement … was that he knew one of these women was a sexual assault survivor. Yet, he admittedly teased her about her personal life? At best, to him, it’s horrendous behavior,” Bondi asserted. “He was almost 30 years older than one woman, almost 40 years older than the second woman, both who worked for him. He was in a position of authority over them, and he admitted he teased them about sexual inferences, flirted with them, which is completely inappropriate — at minimum.” Bondi also said she has concerns about Cuomo tampering with witnesses “because...
    During a BLM “peaceful protest” in Omaha, Nebraska, on May 30 (over George Floyd’s death in police custody in Minneapolis), James Scurlock was peacefully protesting by breaking into an architecture firm — hoisting an office chair and hurling it into two computer monitors, then ripping a phone from a desk and throwing it against the wall, as his friend shattered another monitor — all of which was captured on video. Nearby, Jake Gardner, an Iraq War veteran and Trump supporter, was keeping watch over the two bars he owned, The Hive and The Gatsby, aided by his 68-year-old father and a security guard. The peaceful protesters soon made their way to Jake’s bar, where they hurled a street sign through The Hive’s plate-glass window. He and his father rushed outside to prevent the peaceful protesters from storming his bar. Scurlock’s friend, catching his wind after smashing computer monitors, knocked Gardner’s father to the ground. (It’s on tape.) Or as CNN’s Madeline Holcombe put it: “An unidentified man can be seen pushing Gardner’s father.” Gardner rushed to help his father, then...
    CHICAGO — Facing backlash, the Chicago Police Department deleted all but one of its tweets featuring mugshots and addresses of people arrested during a weekend demonstration in the Loop. The demonstration turned violent, with clashes breaking out between police and protesters. Within hours, the department tweeted out mugshots and identifying information — including the home blocks — of people who faced criminal charges after the youth-led demonstration. The tweets drew condemnation from elected officials, including Ald. Byron Sigcho-Lopez (25th), and numerous citizens. They called on the department to remove the tweets immediately, with Sigcho-Lopez asking the department to “stop doxxing my innocent-until proven-guilty residents.” By Monday afternoon, all but one of the tweets had been deleted. “We are extremely concerned because before there are any convictions these mugshots were already circulating fairly quickly,” Sigcho-Lopez said Monday. Our immigrant community already faced alarming visits from white nationalists last year. Remove this tweet immediately and stop doxxing my innocent-until-proven-guilty residents. I will be following up about this dangerous practice. Remove this @chicago_police @chicagosmayor https://t.co/qPGFaGvyTU— Alderman Byron Sigcho Lopez for the 25th Ward (@SigchoFor25)...
    Former “Saturday Night Live” cast member Jay Pharoah, who revealed last week that he’d been stopped by LAPD officers while jogging recently and that one cop placed a knee on Pharoah’s neck, said on “CBS This Morning” Wednesday that black people in America are made to “feel like we’re guilty until proven innocent.” Pharoah, 32, described an emotional phone conversation he had with his mother after the police incident in April. “I called my mom and told her what happened,” Pharoah told co-host Gayle King. “My dad was on the phone too. My mom started crying … it is a terrible feeling that the aftermath of a terrible situation can cause that much impact on people around you.” Pharoah posted a video message on his Instagram account last week that included security footage of the encounter in which four officers, guns out, order the actor to drop to the ground. Saying he fit the description of a suspect — black man in gray sweat pants and shirt — the officers handcuff Pharoah, with one officer putting his knee on the back...
