CLEVELAND POLICE OFFICER MICHAEL BRELO FOUND NOT GUILTY AFTER MURDERING AN UNARMED COUPLE IN 2012!!!
Despite evidence that Cleveland Police Officer Michael Brelo jumped on the hood of a car, and fired 15 shots into the windshield, today he has now been acquitted in the charge of voluntary manslaughter. Brelo was also acquitted of felonious assault in the course of executing Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams in November 2012. Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams were executed after Cleveland Police Officers sought to pull them over for an alleged "Turn Signal violation." The driver did not comply, and a chase ensued. During the chase more than 100 gunshots were fired into the car, by a total of 13 different officers. Brelo was the only officer charged-because he reloaded his weapon, jumped on top of the car, and continued firing long after the car had stopped moving. Police allege that the car backfired when taking off, which led them to believe that they had been shot at. No gun was ever found, nor was there any evidence that either person fired anything at any cop. Michael Brelo, who was facing 22 years in prison, was acquitted because his lawyers argued that "other officers fired during the final barrage of bullets and prosecutors couldn't prove when the fatal shots were fired." Judge John P. O'Donnell stated that "the state did not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant Michael Brelo knowingly caused the deaths of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams, because the essential element of causation was not proved for both counts...
It was reasonable despite knowing now that there was no gun in the car and he was mistaken about the origin of the gunshots."
A total of 137 bullets were fired into the couple's car during the incident, and reports indicate that they were each shot at least 20 times each.
The City of Cleveland has a long history of going far beyond the use of excessive force, and still has to address the matter of the officers that executed 12 Year Old Tamir Rice in 2014. That same year year their courts failed to file charges against cops that executed 22 Year Old John Crawford, who was shopping for an air rifle in Wal Mart. Late last year The City of Cleveland agreed to begin implementing reforms, after The U.S. Department of Justice investigated the Cleveland Police department & determined that there was a "Pattern or Practice of Excessive Force" and Violating Civil Rights.

JANET JACKSON - "ANY TIME, ANY PLACE"
Black Love & Sensuality personified... From the moment the beat drops, and elevated beyond imagination once you hear her Janet's voice, her classic 1993 Love ballad will take over the mood of any music lover.
"In the thunder and rain, You stare into my eyes, I can feel your hand Movin up my thighs. Skirt around my waist, Wall against my face, I can feel your lips, Oooh"
Remember when songs painted sexy pictures, without being just straight up raunchy? Lol.
Happy Birthday Janet Jackson.
Far too few know about her, but hopefully soon that will change. I first heard of Ann Wolfe years ago after watching an episode of "Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel" on HBO; but sadly her name remained under the radar for several more years. But in the buildup to the Canelo Alvarez versus James Kirkland fight, the question of how James Kirkland would fare without his mentor & trainer Ann Wolfe was a constant question coming from all of the big name analysts. And that question received a DEFINITIVE Answer Last Night as James Kirkland was absolutely destroyed over the course of three brutal rounds.
Now the fact remains that James Kirkland has two losses in his career, both Early Round Knockouts, and BOTH losses occurred when chose other trainers over the proven commodity that is Ann Wolfe!
Ann Wolfe was/is an ex-con, who rose from Poverty & Homelessness to become a Women's Boxing champion who held World Titles in five Different Weight Classes (three at the same time). Her career record was 24-1 with 16 Knockouts, and she was widely considered to be the Hardest Puncher in the history of Women's Sports (Boxing or MMA). Before that though, she served time for drug dealing & slept with her two kids in an Austin, Texas Emergency Room because they were homeless. And in her own words, she would "fuck Ronda Rousey up!" Her intense training style had been criticized as being too aggressive in the past; but now that it has been proven that her style clearly prepares fighters to endure & excel past any type of adversity, one can only wonder how many calls she will be getting from other potential up & coming stars... #Salute
