51-Year Sentence To Lady Who Was Sold As A Sex Slave


I don't believe this ruling was fair by any means. Some type of appeal should be taking place for this young lady who deserves lesser time for her crime.

Cyntoia Brown was 16 and a victim of sex trafficking when she was arrested for killing the man who allegedly solicited her for sex, Johnny Allen. In her defense, she says she believed he was reaching for his gun to kill her. However, Tennessee’s Supreme Court clarified an earlier ruling that she must remain in prison for 51 years before she is eligible for release.

The state Supreme Court’s response comes after a lawsuit was filed claiming Brown’s life sentence is unconstitutional based on a previous Supreme Court ruling that said sentencing a minor to a mandatory life sentence was against the Constitution. Only 20 states and the District of Columbia have banned life without parole for minors. Tennessee is not one of those states; there, people convicted of first-degree murder can only be released from prison after serving at least 51 years of their 60-year sentence. A U.S. District Court in Tennessee noted that her sentence was different because she received a “life sentence, not a sentence of life without the possibility of parole.”

The Women’s March, Kim Kardashian West, Rihanna, and LeBron James have all publicly supported Brown’s release, funded legal support, and used her case to shed light on a larger need for prison reform and the systematic racism ingrained in our justice system. “The system has failed. It’s heartbreaking to see a young girl sex trafficked then when she has the courage to fight back is jailed for life! We have to do better & do what’s right. I’ve called my attorneys yesterday to see what can be done to fix this,” Kardashian tweeted.

In 2004, Brown was forced into prostitution by a pimp known as “Cut Throat” who she believed was her boyfriend. According to court documents, Allen allegedly brought Brown to his home and paid her to have sex with him. She was under the state’s age of consent at the time. In her testimony, Brown said that Allen showed her multiple guns in his home. When she believed that he was reaching under his bed to grab a gun and shoot her, she grabbed a gun out of her purse and shot him. She was tried as an adult and convicted of first-degree premeditated murder, first-degree felony murder, and especially aggravated robbery. Brown has already served 14 years in prison.

In response to the court’s decision, the Women’s March tweeted in support of Brown and other sex trafficking victims, adding that the next Women’s March on January 19, 2019 is for them as well. The organization asked their supporters to contact Tennessee’s governor, Bill Haslam, to demand Brown’s release. “Gov. Haslam has the power to #FreeCyntoia. Every day she remains in prison, he is actively choosing not to,” they tweeted.

Michael Jordan Still The Highest Paid Athlete

(The Wrap-Up Magazine) Forbes published it’s annual retiree rankings today, but aptly followed it up with a piece breaking down how MJ will make more than the likes of LeBron James and Kobe Bryant or even Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo — despite the fact that he stepped away from the hardwood 13 years ago.The Swoosh imprint made $3 billion USD in shoe sales last year in the U.S. alone — resulting in roughly $100 USD million for MJ, which is more than he made in salary ($94 million USD) during his entire 15-year playing career.

On top of that, the vastly improved Charlotte Hornets have undoubtedly lined Jordan’s pockets (he’s been the majority owner since 2010) with a bunch of added dough while partnerships with Gatorade, 2K Sports, and Five Star Fragrances — as well as the long-term extension with memorabilia firm Upper Deck he signed last year — keep the checks coming. MJ’s empire even includes seven restaurants and a car dealership.

Shawn Marion Signs With Cavaliers


+Shawn Marion has just struck a deal with the +Cleveland Cavaliers. Free-agent forward Shawn Marion has committed to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to league sources. Sources told ESPN.com that Marion informed the Cavaliers this weekend that he intends to sign with them this month, despite the fact that Cleveland can only offer him a minimum deal.

The chance to play with LeBron James and immediately compete for a championship, sources said, clinched Marion’s decision to choose Cleveland in the face of a ramped-up pursuit by the Indiana Pacers. As ESPN.com reported earlier this week, Pacers president Larry Bird invited Marion to Indianapolis earlier this week for a face-to-face recruiting pitch over dinner, with Indiana in desperate need of veteran help on the wing after the season-ending compound leg fracture suffered by star swingman Paul George on Aug. 1

The Cavaliers have widely been considered to be the front-runners to sign Marion since it emerged that they’re poised to complete a trade for Minnesota’s Kevin Love later this month. Cleveland is restricted to offering Marion a minimum salary of $1.4 million this season after using all of its cap resources and exceptions elsewhere.

The Pacers confirmed this week that they’ve already been granted a $5.3 million disabled player exception by the league in the wake of George’s season-ending injury suffered on Team USA duty, so Indiana did have the means to outbid Cleveland. But the Pacers would stray into luxury tax territory if they spend more than $1.7 million of that exception, with Bird vowing at his news conference that Indiana — maintaining a longstanding team policy — remains unwilling to be a tax team.

Sources say that Marion had been telling teams for weeks that he hoped to wind up with a championship contender if he left the Dallas Mavericks in free agency. Marion spent the past five seasons with the Mavs and helped them win the first championship in franchise history in 2011 as a key role player who guarded players at four positions.

Cavaliers Fire Mike Brown

The +Cleveland Cavaliers has just fired their coach +Mike Brown. Brown was fired for the second time in four years by owner Dan Gilbert, who last April brought back the only coach to get the Cavs to the NBA Finals but then dismissed him after the team failed to make the playoffs.

The Cavs went 33-49 under Brown, who had four years remaining on his contract. He was fired last year by the Los Angeles Lakers just five games into his second season. Brown was let go in 2010 after the Cavs failed to advance past the conference semifinals. At the time, it appeared Gilbert was making the move — and hiring Byron Scott as coach — to appease LeBron Jamesand keep him in Cleveland. James, though, decided to leave for Miami as a free agent.

The Cavs improved defensively under Brown, moving from last in the league in field goal percentage to 12th. But the offense was a continued work in progress and the Cavs didn’t make a late playoff push despite a favorable schedule down the stretch.

While the Cavs showed signs of progress with Brown, he was unable to get one of the league’s youngest teams to play consistently. There were also some personality conflicts between All-Star guard Kyrie Irving and backcourt mate Dion Waiters. Although the two claimed to get along, there was little harmony on the court.
