Prosecutors to drop request for death penalty in the murder of Pop Smoke

Big news in the quest to get justice for the murder of Pop Smoke. According to the YBF, prosecutors in the case are poised to drop their request for the death penalty against at least one of the killers. Per the site, Corey Walker, 20, the only adult killer will not be put to death over his crimes. The move comes as the death penalty as a whole is being largely and both federally reviewed in the United States. Activists and even government officials are coming to the realization that the death penalty often makes those sanctioning it no different from people who kill each other with a gun. Other suspects in the case (both minors so we can't identify them here) are all facing gang and gun charges among other things in connection to the case.

50 Cent has once again proved he’s just an awful person

American rapper 50 Cent has made a modern career out of being an awful person. According to Rap-Up, the childish rapper is trying to take fellow American musician Tierra Marie to court and seize her assets over a judgement handed down In a case that was originally against him for revenge porn.

Britney Spears Dad allegedly lied on Britney’s court documents: Reports

Britney Spears Dad Jamie may be the enemy after all. This week the pop star's conservatorship battle went into a new realm after it was revealed that her father may have falsely claimed on documents that she has dementia or early onset dementia. It's worth noting that at least what is publicly known it is not known that Britney has dementia (a disease typically associated with someone much older than Britney actually is.) Now there's quite literally two things going at play here. Lynn Spears, Jamie 's Mom has already claimed that Jamie is abusing his power and that something isn't quite right with him behind the helm in any fashion. If Britney actually has Dementia, then this is quite probably more heartbreaking than most realize and the family should stay out of the media for the...
