The Case for Due Process

Written by Thursday, May 18, 2017
By Veronica Mackey At Tuesday’s council meeting, activists who expressed frustration over the pace of investigations into the shooting deaths of Kisha Michael and Marquintan Sandlin by police were given advice by others in the audience. The couple was killed 15 months ago. Investigations by the police department and L.A. County District Attorney’s Office are currently being conducted. A woman brought a bouquet of pink flowers to illustrate that Michael’s children couldn’t give flowers to…
Sexual assault trial begins next month. Jury selection will begin next week in Philadelphia in the Bill Cosby sexual assault trial. The defamed comedian and actor said he won’t testify, but had plenty to say to Michael Smerconish on Sirius XM. Commenting on the more than 50 women who have come forth, charging him with drugging, sexual assault and rape as far back as the 1970s, Cosby suggested that many of the allegations are based…
The killer of slain Inglewood policeman, Sgt. George Aguilar, is set to be released from prison, despite efforts from family members to keep him behind bars. Aguilar was gunned down while chasing several robbery suspects in March 1988. Joevone Elster, the mastermind behind the crime, was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Four suspects were arrested and charged with murder. Aguilar was immortalized when he became the first Inglewood police officer to die in…
By Veronica Mackey A small group of Trump supporters tested the mettle of Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Inglewood) last Saturday and got run out of the building. The fiery, 78 year-old Congresswoman, whom Millennials refer to as “Auntie Maxine, ” shut down the hecklers while simultaneously informing constituents about serious issues facing lawmakers in Washington. Foes and supporters piled into the Inglewood High School auditorium for a town hall meeting held at Inglewood High School, 231…

Can We Say the I-Word Yet?

Written by Thursday, May 18, 2017
Ever since Trump was inaugurated as president in January, political foes have been waiting for his demise. Resistance rose to a new high, stirred in part by disgruntled Hillary Clinton voters. The most immediate proof was the thousands of women’s and anti-Trump rallies that took place the day after President No. 45 was sworn in. Some occurred the day after the election. It didn’t take long, though, for Trump to become his own worst enemy. First there was the failed travel ban on Muslim countries, and hiccups in the healthcare plan. Now, in office barely 4 months, Trump is at…

Help A Young Mother Be The Best She Can Be

Written by Thursday, May 11, 2017
A common complaint that I hear from older people is that younger parents are not taking enough time with their kids. They point out that Millennials are growing up without a sense of connection to family—that technology has taken over their lives to the point that they lack basic social skills. I agree that this is true to a certain extent, but the question is always, “what are we going to do about it.” With Mother’s Day weekend upon us, I think this is the perfect time to come together and support our mothers. Remember, parenting doesn’t come with a…

Now that FBI Director James Comey has been fired, Washington politicians are left with a myriad of questions. Chief among them, is who should continue with the investigation into the Russian interference during the 2016 presidential campaign. Until Tuesday night, Comey was in charge, and had reportedly asked for more funding. Republican and Democratic lawmakers are asking for an independent special prosecutor to take over. The firing came unexpectedly. In fact, Comey was at a…

Flying…It’s Rough Up There

Written by Thursday, May 11, 2017
By Veronica Mackey Fight and flight. Trouble on the tarmac. Pick any clever-sounding phrase you like to describe the recent rash of airline passenger altercations, and it could very well apply. There was once a time, back in the day, when folks actually dressed up to travel on a plane. It really was that big of a deal. Now, comfort is king. And rightfully so, because you could be literally waiting at an airport for…

And last week, it finally happened. Nigerian officials reported that 83 women…
Looking at the myriad of political news that hits us everyday, one could lose sight that we are still living in the United States of America. With so much bickering and partisanship going on between Republicans and Democrats, red states vs. blue states, and the left vs. the right, it feels more like the Divided States. On Monday, a voice of reason spoke up for the millions of us who are tired of all the games of one-upmanship. Jimmy Kimmel set comedy aside to talk about something we can all agree on—being able to afford quality, life=saving healthcare. The very…
Bidding for naming rights at the new Rams stadium has begun, and word is that no less than $30 million a year for a minimum 20-year deal will do. The forthcoming $2.6 billion stadium, currently being built in Inglewood will eventually house the Rams and the Chargers. Both teams have relocated respectively from St. Louis and San Diego. The price is hefty, for sure, but still comes in less than the deal signed with Metropolitan…
On Tuesday, the U.S. Justice Department decided not to charge two white Baton Rouge police officers in the shooting death Alton Sterling. That same day, former North Charleston police officer, Michael Slager, also white, plead guilty to violating the civil rights of Walter Scott, the unarmed motorist he fatally shot. It was justice for one family, injustice for another. The men, both black, were black were killed within 15 months of each other by police.…
