What’s up everybody? I thought that I might try something different tonight. I have been obsessively watching every Raw, Smackdown, and PPV the WWE has been putting out for the past few years, after falling off watching for quite some time before that. I have tossed around the idea of blogging about Wrestling since it […]

I drove up to the cemetery office with more than a little trepidation. Tired from the early morning flight from Washington, DC to Denver, and then the tedious drive South to Colorado Springs, I did not know what to expect. The front range of Colorado and the wall of the Rocky Mountains to the immediate […]

My learning blogs

To commence this reflective essay, I asked myself, what is leadership? In fact, defining leadership do not only appear to me as a complicated concept but I also found that it has an increasing global influence and generational differences (Northouse, 2016). Therefore, leadership tend to “have different meanings for different people” (Stogdill, 1974, p. 7). To answer […]

Johnson: “Absolutely not. I would not leave me daughter with anyone that’s accused of being a pedophile. I would not.” King: “That doesn’t seem like a contradiction to you?” Johnson: “Absolutely not.” King: “You’re defending R. Kelly and at the same time, saying you wouldn’t leave your own daughter with him.” Johnson: “I wouldn’t leave my daughter with anyone – I’m going to say it again – he’s accused of being a pedophile.” Johnson also described Kelly as a “mess” right now because Kelly is afraid and isolated in jail.

Federal prosecutors in Illinois and New York have charged Kelly with 18 combined counts – including child pornography. Kelly is being held without bond in Chicago. The embattled singer was arrested in Chicago on July 11 while walking his dog. The next day, federal prosecutors in Chicago and New York unsealed the two separate indictments.

The Chicago indictment accuses Kelly and former manager Derrel McDavid of conspiring to cover up videotapes Kelly allegedly made of himself sexually abusing children. Another Kelly employee, Milton “June” Brown, faces child pornography charges for allegedly helping ship videotapes of Kelly’s sexual crimes in the U.S. mail. Kelly and McDavid allegedly coerced the girl and her parents to lie about the video at the center of his 2008 child pornography case, and claim it wasn’t her with Kelly on the tape. The singer and his manager also allegedly paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to recover videos of sexual abuse, and paid off witnesses and victims to change their stories. Kelly, McDavid, and Brown have pleaded not guilty. McDavid was released on bond, and Brown was released on his own recognizance, after his first court appearance. Kelly is being held in solitary confinement. Meantime, the federal indictment in New York charges Kelly with five felony counts, including racketeering and Mann Act violations, which involve transporting a person across state lines to engage in illegal sexual activity. The racketeering case also accuses him of kidnapping, sexual exploitation of a child, and forced labor. View this document on Scribd Federal prosecutors said Kelly and his managers, bodyguards, and other employees acted as a criminal enterprise to recruit women and girls to engage in illegal sexual activity with Kelly. Kelly and his enterprise would pick out women and girls who attended his concerts and other events; and arranged for them to travel to see Kelly. He would later hold them against their will, according to the feds. Once the women and girls Kelly had picked started staying with him, he and his employees would set rules his victims had to follow, including not leaving their rooms without Kelly’s permission, even to eat or go to the bathroom; not looking at other men; to wear baggy clothing whenever they weren’t with him; calling him “Daddy.” — even to eat or go to the bathroom — without Kelly’s permission, calling the singer “Daddy;” and demanding absolute commitment to Kelly. Kelly allegedly coerced some of the girls he’d abused to engage in sexually explicit conduct on video, which he later had shipped across state lines. The feds also said he didn’t inform his victims that he had a sexually transmitted disease. The indictment alleges that the criminal acts date back to 1999. Through the recent documentary series “Surviving R. Kelly,” federal authorities in New York realized some of his acts happened there. Kelly has already been charged with over 20 counts of sexual abuse in Cook County. He was first charged in February with 10 counts of sexual abuse involving four females, including three children. In May, he was charged with an additional 11 felony counts involving one of those victims, identified only as JP. Kelly is scheduled to appear in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn next month. His next hearing in the Cook County case against him is set for Aug. 15.

WOWK 13 News
CHARLESTON, W. Va. (WOWK) — Lawmakers are back in town to wrap up a number of bills. But the big surprise was a last-minute bill submitted by Governor Justice, that would give the controversial Pleasants Power Station on Willow Island, a $12 million dollar tax break. Otherwise the coal-fired plant is scheduled close in 2022, costing the community hundreds of jobs. “If that plant would close, it’s going to be very difficult for the county to survive a hit like that financially,” said Del. David Kelly, (R) Tyler-Pleasants. Consumer watchdogs don’t believe the state should provide a bail out. “And I have a lot of questions, and I hope the legislators have a lot of questions, about how First Energy intends to become competitive with using this $12 million dollar break. A break that I see as nothing more than corporate welfare,” said Karan Ireland, a consumer watchdog. No votes yet on the power plant, but the House did approve provide 67-million more dollars for local school aid, after passing the controversial Education Reform Bill last month. “You’re really looking at over $177 million dollars of additional funding for traditional public education, while providing some very modest school choice provisions,” said Del. Paul Espinosa (R) Jefferson – Majority Whip. More money was added for bond sales to fix roads across the Mountain State. “While the House met on Monday, the Senate is scheduled to meet at Noon on Tuesday, and will be taking up the very same issues,” said Mark Curtis, 13 News Chief Political Reporter.
