Cosby Mistrial: What Went Wrong?

Written by Thursday, June 22, 2017
By Veronica Mackey When Judge Steven O’Neill declared a mistrial in the Bill Cosby case on June 17, it was a crushing blow for the prosecution, but not surprising in hindsight. Bottom line is prosecutors failed to convince at least one juror that Cosby was guilty of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in his Philadelphia home in 2004. The jury, which consisted of seven men and five women, was deadlocked, and the 79 year-old…

Time to Get Movin’

Written by Thursday, June 22, 2017
Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a big advocate of physical fitness. The benefits of exercise cannot be overstated, especially as one gets older. Exercising is one of those things that often goes under appreciated. The value may not be apparent until you have an injury, come down with an illness or have to run for your life. This is what separates the fit from the unfit. In most cases, the person who has been working out all along will recover quicker from sickness and be able to move faster in an emergency. If you haven’t exercised in a…

Appreciating Father’s Day

Written by Thursday, June 15, 2017
On Mother’s Day, I overheard a man tell his family as they were leaving the restaurant, “Remember now, I want y’all to do the same thing for me on Father’s Day.” Everyone laughed, but the reality is we are all too familiar with the fact that many men feel cheated when compared to moms. Watch any sporting event, or award show and you’ll hear more shout-outs to mom. To be fair, there are many more absent fathers than mothers, so some of the father snubs are well deserved. But those men who stuck around to help raise their kids—married or…

Written by Thursday, June 15, 2017
By Veronica Mackey Attorney General Jeff Sessions was a senator for 20 years before accepting his current post in the Trump Administration. The seasoned politician knows his way around investigative hearings and knows how to avoid implicating himself under oath. Nonetheless, the Alabama Republican came unraveled by a Congressional newcomer during Tuesday’s hearing on Russian interference with the 2016 election. Freshman Sen. Kamala Harris fired off question after question about Sessions’ meetings with Russian officials…

The trial of a Minnesota police officer who fatally shot a black motorist opened Monday with attorneys offering sharply different accounts of whether the officer saw the motorist’s gun before he began firing, according to AP. Officer Jeronimo Yanez, a Latino, is charged with manslaughter in the July 6 death of Philando Castile, a 32-year-old elementary school cafeteria worker, in a St. Paul suburb. Castile’s death in little more than a minute after he was…
