Rapper facing life in prison for "violent" album cover art

Like countless artists before him, San Diego-based rapper Brandon Duncan's new album features a picture of a gun and bullets on its front cover. However Duncan, who raps under the name Tiny Doo, could be the first artist to go to jail for his choice of album art.

Duncan faces 25-years-to-life on gang conspiracy charges brought against him this week, according to the Los Angeles Times. Prosecutors will reportedly look to prove that the album art "willfully promotes, furthers, or assists in any felonious criminal conduct by members of that gang."

"That gang" refers to the San Diego Lincoln Park gang, of which Duncan is a member, according to San Diego police. According to the Times, at least 15 Lincoln Park gang members have been charged in a recent string of shootings in the city.

Father Calls Cops On Son For Giving Cannabis Oil To Grandpa

This sounds like a family that doesn’t put the fun in dysfunctional.

In July of this year, J. Michael Robbins of Downers Grove, Illinois petitioned for an order of protection in DuPage County on behalf of his father, Joseph Robbins. The petition was filed to protect his father from his own grandson, David M. Robbins. David also happens to be J. Michael Robbins’ son.

Why on earth would anyone call the cops on their own son? Surely, he must have done something terrible.

Think again.

Why Did CA Fight To Keep Its Inmates In Jail? Cheap Labor.

Why Does CA Want to Keep Its Inmates in Jail?

Now, you may read that and say, “well shucks, if those are crazy nuts in those CA jails who like the stabbin’ and the thievin’ and the carryin’ on, sure, keep em’ locked up!” Or at least you would say that if you were a 1920′s gold prospector.

And hey, you might be right – but what about those who would be eligible to get out due to expanded parole programs or after CA passed its new drug laws? Those people did their time (much of which was assigned based on non-violent drug offenses) and now can go free, so why shouldn’t they, right? Well, lawyers from California’s Attorney General’s office don’t think the same way.

Why? Because inmates are nice cheap labor.

When Henry Kissinger Makes Sense

November 12, 2014

Exclusive: Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger disputes the mainstream U.S. media’s view of the Ukraine crisis, noting that Russia’s response was reactive to the West’s actions, not the other way around. But the MSM keeps up the drumbeat about Russian “aggression,” writes Robert Parry.
