Ray Lewis Son Charged With 3rd Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct. 

Ray Lewis III, son of former Baltimore Ravens star Ray Lewis, has been charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Two victims told authorities that Lewis III, a sophomore cornerback for the Coastal Carolina University football team, sexually assaulted them on Saturday, Jan. 23, at an apartment near campus, according to police records
Lewis, 20, turned himself into the police on Friday, according to a WMBF News Report. His arrest warrant alleges knowledgeable sexual battery of an 18-year-old female who was incapacitated from the use of drugs and/or alcohol.

Lewis III played at the University of Miami, his father’s alma mater, for two seasons before transferring to Coastal Carolina last year. In 12 games in the 2015 season, Lewis III was credited with 14 tackles.

Jada Pinkett Smith reveals she was a drug dealer when she met Tupac. 

Maybe if Smith had told the real story, they wouldn’t have felt the need to do the Hollywood thing and embellish.
Today on Sway in the Morning, Smith revealed for the first time she was a drug dealer when she met Pac.

“It’s kinda hard because I haven’t really told the whole story,” she said, when asked about her relationship with Pac. “One of the things that’s very interesting that I’ve never really said before is that when I first met Pac, when we first met, I was a drug dealer. Yes. I won’t get into the details of it. I’m going to write a book about it … Something very bad happened to me. As I coming out of the life, he was going in.”
“I just decided that one little piece was important to share finally because it gives more insight to who we were. It wasn’t just about, ‘You have this cute girl and this cool guy they must have been in his [romance]!’ Nah. It wasn’t that at all,” she continued. “It was about survival and it’s always been about survival between us, you know what I’m saying? And holding each other down in ways that only he and I could hold each other down.”

R. Kelly holding young women against their will in an abusive sex ‘cult’: 31 year den mother trains them for his sexual pleasure. 

According to a report by Buzzfeed, one girl’s parents have gone to the police with accusations that R. Kelly is running an abusive sex-obsessed cult that had gotten ahold of their daughter.
The mother, who goes by “J” in the report, tells Buzzfeed about how her 19-year-old daughter met R. Kelly backstage at a concert in Atlanta with the promise that R. Kelly was going to help propel her music career. Now, two years after the meeting, J has lost control of her daughter, who is living with R. Kelly and appears to be completely brainwashed.

J and her husband Tim say that their daughter is “being held against her will” in what they call a “cult.” Cheryl Mack (R. Kelly’s former personal assistant) and Kitti Jones and Asante McGee (two women who lived and had sexual relationships with the star at various times) confirmed that the singer has about six women living in properties under his name. They say that he completely controls every aspect of their lives down to what they eat and when they bathe. They say he also dictates how they engage in sex, and that he records the encounters.

The women claim that R. Kelly has a 31-year-old den mother that trains the new women on how R. Kelly likes to be pleasured. 19-year-old Halle Calhoun was also suggested to be one of Kells’ kept women, being described by Buzzfeed as “a 19-year-old model who has been photographed in public with Kelly and named on music gossip websites — a rarity among the women in his circle.” There’s also reportedly a 25 and 26-year-old who have been living with R. Kelly since they were 18 and 19, and an 18-year-old girl who is said to be the singer’s “favorite — his number-one girl.”
Women in the cult are referred to as R. Kelly’s “Babies” and he forces them to call him “Daddy.” They also have to ask permission to leave their assigned rooms in his guest house and can only dress in jogging suits, as to not expose their figure when they go out. When they break the rules, Mack says R. Kelly physically abuses the women. Jones claims the singer held her against a tree and slapped her outside of a Subway restaurant in 2013 because she was being too friendly with the male cashier.
“R. Kelly is the sweetest person you will ever want to meet,” McGee said. “But Robert is the devil.”
Since last seeing her in December, J has only heard from her daughter two other times, the most recent being a “Happy Mother’s Day from me and Rob” text message.
A welfare check in January did not lead to any charges. One of the girls in Georgia just told authorities she was fine and did not want to be bothered. Consent also comes into play because all of the women in this “cult” are of legal age — 17 in Illinois and 16 in Georgia.

Are Guns Getting Dropped Off In Chicago? 

For years gangs in Chicago have claimed crates of guns show up in the hood and no one knows where, why or how they got there. Many thought this notion was laughable…I mean, why would guns appear out of thin area in Chicago’s Black communities?! 
Are guns coming into the Black community in Chicago via law enforcement? On Monday, July 3, 2017 a cop’s vehicle was supposedly stolen at a gas station. Or was it stolen? Maybe it was a drop off car? Inside the car was a ballistic vest, two Glock handguns, one M4 carbine rifle, a stun grenade, ammunition, etc! 
Why would a cop be riding around with all that weaponry? Why would said cop leave his running vehicle (engine on) at a gas station? Maybe the gangs are right? Maybe the cops are dropping off guns in Chicago’s Black community? 
“…most law enforcement agencies have their own gas fill up stations…I mean, when was the last time you seen a cop car at a local gas station?”
Think about it…how in the hell are teenagers getting guns? How are convicted felons getting guns? How are all these guns ending up in the hands of vicious thugs? 
It’s not like convicted felons and teens can buy guns from the local gun shop. That’s illegal, they won’t sell guns to a convicted felon in Illinois. To buy a gun in Illinois one would need a (F.O.I.D. Card) FIREARMS OWNER’S IDENTIFICATION CARD. 

​​What do you think? Are guns purposely being dropped off to vicious drug lords and gang bangers in Chicago? Do we have proof from last Monday’s debacle? Is this the smoking gun we’ve all been looking for? Is the government via law enforcement supplying the Black community in Chicago with guns? 

Heads up, family lawyers – beginning next month, Illinois will trade the percentage guideline child support formula for the income shares method used in the majority of states.

On July 1, 2017, a major change for calculating child support obligations takes effect. Last year, Public Act 99-764 was enacted. The legislation amended the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act to replace the percentage guideline formula with the income shares model for calculating child support. This is a significant change that brings Illinois in line with 39 other states and the District of Columbia, which already use the income shares model.

Based on actual child-rearing costs:
Since 1984, Illinois has used the percentage guideline formula to determine child support. It arrives at the child support obligation by multiplying the payor’s net income by a statutorily set percentage, which increases based on the number of children. This model is now considered outdated “because it does not reflect actual child rearing costs or allocate those costs between the parents.” (See more in the December 2016 IBJ at http://bit.ly/2qYq8Rr). Rather, the old formula required payors to simply pay a percentage of their net income regardless of the actual child rearing costs. Oak Brook attorney Margaret A. Bennett believes the old model often caused acrimony between divorcing parents because it is not always perceived as equitable and accurate.
Bennett says that the perception of fairness in child support is important to getting buy-in from parents. The new income shares model is based on real data that takes factors into account other than just the income of one parent. It calculates child support using actual child-rearing costs that are based in part on data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The Illinois Department of Health and Family Services uses that data to publish its Schedule of Basic Child Support Obligation. The schedule was updated on April 6, 2017 to reflect a recent increase in the cost of living, Bennett says.
The new computation is based on several factors. First, the net monthly income for each parent is determined. Income from all sources is included in the calculation. This means that if a party is receiving spousal maintenance, either from the divorcing spouse or a prior relationship, that amount is factored into net income. A party that pays maintenance from a prior relationship has that amount deducted from their net income. However, government benefits like Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program, and SSI are not included as income.
The Act allows parties to use either of two different tax-based formulas to determine net income: a simplified standardized tax amount formula or an individualized tax amount formula. The standardized formula treats both parties as individual filers who claim one dependency exemption. A gross-to-net-income conversion chart can be found via Internet. The individualized formula considers the actual filing status of the parties, their dependency allocations, and tax credits. The parties can also agree to use a different formula so long as the court finds it to be conscionable.
Once the individual net monthly incomes are determined, they are added together. This combined income amount is then matched to its corresponding entry on the Schedule, which is based on the number of children from one to six. For example, if a divorcing couple has a combined adjusted monthly net income of $10,000 and only one child together, their basic support obligation for that child is $1,445 per month.
Once the basic support obligation is determined, the percentage contributions of each parent’s income is determined. It is a simple calculation. The individual’s monthly net income is divided by the combined monthly net income. Returning to our example, if the parties’ combined monthly net income is $10,000 with one parent earning $2,500 and the other $7,500, their percentage contributions would be 25 and 75 percent, respectively.
The parent who has the majority of parenting time receives the support payment, which is calculated by multiplying the basic support obligation by the payor’s income share. It is presumed that the payee will use their own percentage contribution to care for the child. In our example, if the parent earning $2,500 per month has the majority of parenting time, then he or she will receive $1,083.75 per month in child support (i.e., the other parent’s 75 percent contribution multiplied by the $1,445 basic support obligation). That same parent will be presumed to spend his or her own percentage contribution to care for the child (i.e., $361.25 per month, which is 25 percent of the $1,445 basic support obligation). Bennett says that this increases the perception of fairness and equity in child support. Both parents’ contributions to the support obligation are acknowledged.
Shared-parenting adjustment:
Other factors can adjust the support obligation. Notably, when both parents have 146 or more parenting overnights a year, the shared parenting adjustment kicks in.
The shared parenting adjustment is a two-step calculation. First, the basic support obligation is multiplied by 1.5. This accounts for the increased child-rearing costs for both parents in a shared parenting situation. The parents’ contributions are then determined. Those amounts are adjusted by the percentage of parenting time allocated to the other parent.
The Act still addresses everything it had addressed before, says Bennett. It adjusts based on whether a parent is incarcerated, whether the parties’ income is at 70 percent of the federal poverty line, and whether one parent is underemployed, among others. She says that the Act should increase compliance with support orders and decrease acrimony between the parties.

Playas Are All-Around Men

To be a man of many sides, is to count as many men. He makes life richer, by bestowing his wealth upon his neighborhood. Variety in what is best, is the joy of life. A great art, that of knowing how to garner all that is good: and since nature has made in man an epitome of herself, by giving him highest standing, let art make him into a little universe through the exercise, and the development of his taste and of his mind.
