Stay out of the media!

Standard

Enough is enough with the Eddie Long saga. Now one of his accusers, Jamal Parris, has spoken publicly about the abuse. He spoke with a local Atlanta television station, Fox 5, without the consent from his attorney BJ Bernstein.

Parris states that he loves his “Daddy” and always will. Bishop Long was a father to him and the other accusers & they looked at him as their father, but his actions toward them have scared them for life.

Ok, I am all for the truth being told & Long, if he is guilty, be held accountable. But young man STOP the interviews. You have filed your lawsuit. Your attorney is now your mouthpiece. Just like Bishop Long have said what he is going to say this past Sunday during his church service, there is no need for him to speak publicly about this case anymore.

Running your mouth, can and will cause a delay in finding an impartial jury to try your case. We all know this case is getting national attention. If you want closure & Bishop Long exposed, sit your azz down & talk through your attorney.

The effects of abuse will not go away quickly but standing in front of a camera & microphone does not help your case….Lets let the justice system do its job.

Here is Parris interview…

McDonald’s beating

Standard

Most teenagers’ first job is in a fast food restaurant & McDonald’s is a favorite. Jerelle Gray was no different than any other teenager in his senior year of high school at Bolton High. He was working, making his own money, and preparing to graduate in May. However, in February, Jerelle Gray was brutally beaten up by his manager while he was at work. Gray worked at McDonalds on Austin Peay in Memphis, TN.

Jackson Martin-McDonalds Manager

Jackson Martin, then McDonald’s manager, got into a verbal altercation with Gray over a shift change. The verbal assault led to a physical assault where Gray received substantial head and nose injuries.

Gray was a dedicated employee of McDonalds. Often times, he would work extra shifts as needed to assist with the shortage of workers. This particular night was no different. Gray came in on his off day to assist & was left to work the store alone with no manager. When Martin did arrive to work, late, he pursued to harass Gray and the fight began.

Gray attorney, D’Army Bailey, has filed a civil lawsuit against McDonalds for failure to protect Gray, an employee, and robbing him of his senior year in high school. Gray’s attorneys want a jury to hear the case.

Finally, maybe the Gray family can put this horrific incident behind them.

Lindsay Lohan 9 Lives

Standard

Lindsay Lohan has been in more trouble than we can keep up with but she obviously has 9 lives or some fairy god mothers looking after her because late Friday she was granted bail that will allow her to leave jail.

CNN reports: Lohan can leave jail after she posts a $300,000 bond, but she must be fitted with a SCRAM alcohol-detection bracelet within 24 hours, Los Angeles County Superior Court spokesman Allan Parachini said.

How many times will this young lady get a slap on the hand for her behavior? She was sentenced before to jail and rehab because of her drug and alcohol abuse but due to her notoriety she did not complete her sentence. Lohan was originally sentenced to 90 days in jail followed by 90 days in a drug rehab program. She only spent 2 weeks in jail and less than 3 weeks in rehab. Upon her arrival and evaluation in rehab the doctors determined that her condition was not grave enough to be in rehab so she was released. Now, the doctors license should be revoked because they were obviously wrong.

Lohan failed two drug test which resulted in her probation being revoked and sent back to jail. Her attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley filed a writ of habeas corpus on Friday. Once those papers were filed Judge Schnegg granted her bail and Lohan was released.

Now we are back to square one….Her probation hearing is set for October 22. We shall see if they hand her a tough sentence and make her serve the sentence.

Statistics….is it just a song or a way of life?

Standard

Lyfe Jennings penned a song to help women understand men. The song Statistics is/was a number one hit, but for some reason, Lyfe wants to be a continuous statistic himself.

Lyfe JenningsJust this past Wednesday, Jennings plead guilty to several charges, including discharging a firearm, firearm possession by a convicted felon and attempting to elude police. He was sentenced to 3 ½ years in prison.

In 2008, this superstar decided to visit the home of his ex-girlfriend mother of his children & fire a gun into the door & kick the door in. His children was at home during this altercation & Jennings did not let that deter him from firing the gun into the house.

When will these superstars learn to stop being stupid & think before they react. TI, Lil Wayne, & now Lyfe Jennings are all spending time in the clunker LOL…..

Purple Drank

JaMarcus Russell

The news is buzzing from the recent arrest of NFL QB JaMarcus Russell for the possession of a controlled substance-codeine syrup. Just why would codeine syrup be a controlled substance you may ask? Codeine syrup is sold in cough syrup and most cold liquid medicine, so why was he arrested?

Purple drank, the street name, is a recreational drug that came onto the scene in the 1990s and made very popular by a Houston DJ, DJ Screw.  This drank quickly became a favorite among the rap scene and as we are quickly finding out, a favorite among NFL players.  

The most popular type of codeine syrup is promethazine-codeine, a prescription cough syrup. The active ingredients are codeine, a narcotic, and the antihistamine medication promethazine. When taken in large quantities, both medications can lead to sedation and altered levels of consciousness. In lower doses, these potentiate the opiates.

Purple drank is a concoction of promethazine codeine syrup, Jolly Ranchers candy and 7-Up soda. In recent years, Purple drank has gained nationwide fame from being included in the smash hit “Sippin’ on Some Syrup” by  Three 6 Mafia, in Lil Wayne Duffle Bag Boy video he is seen paying homage to DJ Screw & have Purple Drank in his cup…but this dr[a]nk does not only appeal to male rappers but to female rappers as well. Nicki Minaj sings/raps about the Purple drank in her hit single “Mind on My Money“.

This is the new down low way to get high and those that drink Purple drank think they are not doing anything wrong since the ingredients are bought over the counter & even from a candy store; however, this is an illegal activity; hence the arrest of JaMarcus Russell.

Sol Searching does not endorse the use of illegal drugs. Children don’t be fooled this Purple drank is dangerous and you should SAY NO TO DRUGS. Do your research, the music industry has lost many to the drinking of this Purple syrup: Pimp C, DJ Screw, and several others.
