I have sat relatively quiet and watched the events from August 9, 2014, forward. I have offered prayers to the Brown family and support to their team. I have been frustrated by the lack of leadership and response by those in charge on both sides. Curiosity fuels speculation and speculation fuels contempt. As such, Ferguson, Missouri has become a civil rights battleground- figuratively and literally. Conclusions have been drawn before all of the facts are known. Worse yet, the improperly addressed outrage has fueled so much division.
We are on the verge of a decision and I hope it will be met with peace. I hope those in charge will take a moment to urge those disenfranchised to continue to fight, vote, pray and serve to make change happen. Despite Trayvon, Jordan and Mike, too many failed to show up at the polls in November. Too many are letting apathy excuse jury service. Civil rights and justice start with the face in the mirror.
Two sides to every story?
What is known? 18-year-old Michael Brown, Jr., was shot and killed by police officer Darren Wilson.
What is unknown? Much of everything else. A teenager is dead as a result of a judgment call that looks all too familiar and tragic. What happened in the moments leading up to the fatal shots? Why did Mike Brown have to die? My brothers and sisters have seen it too many times. They “know” the story, but only the Grand Jury “knows” the story. Right?

In the past, Courts and Sports has provided you with the worst of the worst mugshots, mug shots of the day, worst t-shirt mugshots and everything in between. Today we are proud to announce the “Saddest Mug Shot Ever.” Gabriel Harris is very sad. Why? It all started when a hungry (not yet sad) Mr. Harris wanted the old 3 a.m. Fourth Meal. Yes. Mr. Harris was arrested at Taco Bell. Personally, when I get Taco Bell on the mind after midnight, it is hard to resist. Unfortunately for Mr. Harris, he was denied his crunchy beef wrap supreme after the Taco Bell employees refused to serve him in the drive through because he was on a bike, oh, and the restaurant had just closed.

You may remember our post a while back, “Mug Shots: The Worst of the Worst T-Shirts to be Arrested In.” When I wrote that post, I am sure that we had a majority of the worst of the worst T-shirts to be arrested in, but today, today there has been a T-shirt mug shot game changer.
This woman was arrested for possession of crystal meth, while wearing a shirt that reads, “I (heart) Crystal Meth.”
Here is the full story:
A Kentucky woman, Deborah Asher, wearing an “I Love Crystal Meth” t-shirt was arrested for possession of… crystal meth.
According to The Smoking Gun, Asher (seen in the above mug shot) and Richard Rice, 57, her male companion, were found in possession of 3.37 grams of meth and some measuring scales. I can’t say that I know how much 3.37 grams of meth is, but it was enough to get them both charged with a felony for narcotics possession and drug trafficking.
- Everyone is innocent until proven guilty. And you have the right to remain “silent,” but wearing an “I (heart) Crystal Meth” shirt certainly doesn’t help your cause.
- Whoever designed this shirt thought it was necessary to specify that it was “crystal meth” and not just “meth”
- When making the shirt, the person who created didn’t think it looked just right so they added some bullet points on each side of “meth”. In my opinion, those little dots really set off the layout of the shirt. Turned out great.
- While the fashion choice is questionable, at least she didn’t butt-dial the police while cooking meth.
In a recent interview with a Wisconsin radio station WJMR, Michael Jordan described Barack Obama’s golf game as “shitty.” President Obama laughed off the statement, “Mike and I, we know each other but I’ve never played golf with him,”
He noted that Jordan made the comment in an interview with Ahmad Rashad, whom the president said he had partnered with before on the golf course. Obama said he and Rashad twice beat former Miami Heat star Alonzo Mourning, The Hill reports. Read more
