Baltimore Officer Resigns After Video Shows Him Repeatedly Punching Man

A Baltimore police officer has resigned following a viral video of him repeatedly punching a man identified as 26-year-old DaShawn McGrier.

According to reports, McGrier was moving to leave after police pulled up to where he was hanging out and he noticed an officer that he had a history with and didn’t want any trouble. McGrier was arrested in June for allegedly assaulting the unnamed officer, and his trial was scheduled for later this month. This time around, it was McGrier who was assaulted.

The officer reportedly asked McGrier for his identification and when he refused, the officer hit McGrier repeatedly and pinned him to the ground. McGrier’s attorney Warren Brown said he sustained a “Fractured jaw, two fractured ribs, he lost feeling in his left leg,” in the incident. He has since regained feeling in his leg.

According to Baltimore Police, McGrier was taken into custody and received medical treatment, and he was released without any charges. The unnamed officer was suspended during an investigation of the incident, and the officer later resigned.

Interim Baltimore Police Commissioner Gary Tuggle released a statement, which read, “While I have an expectation that officers are out of their cars, on foot, and engaging citizens, I expect that it will be done professionally and constitutionally. I have zero tolerance for behavior like I witnessed on the video today. Officers have a responsibility and duty to control their emotions in the most stressful of situations.”

Brown is planning to take action against the officer and the Baltimore Police Department.

Ralo Bond Hearing Reportedly Cancelled Until Further Notice

Ralo was arrested in April 2018 after authorities found 440 pounds of marijuana aboard his private plane.

Since then, the rapper has been looking to get released from jail as he awaits trial. His team was even able to get over 11,000 signatures on a petition asked for him to be released. However, that seems to not be up for consideration anymore according to his team.

Via an Instagram story post, Ralo’s team posted a photo with the statement “Ralo bond hearing has been cancelled till further notice. #FreeRalo.”

Previously, a judge denied Ralo’s bond because he believed the rapper was still running a drug empire while in jail.

Man seen in video harassing woman in Puerto Rico shirt charged with hate crime

An allegedly intoxicated man, whose harassment of a woman wearing a Puerto Rico flag shirt at a Chicago park last month was captured on video, has been charged with felony hate crime counts, a spokesperson for the Cook County prosecutor’s office said.

Timothy Trybus, 62, is charged with two felony counts of hate crime, Cook County State’s Attorney spokeswoman Tandra Simonton said.

A man identified as Trybus is seen in a video accosting Mia Irizarry, 24, at the Caldwell Woods forest preserve in Chicago on June 14. Because of the Puerto Rican flag shirt Irizarry is wearing, the man in the video asks if she is a U.S. citizen and says “you’re not going to change us, you know that?” and “the world is not going to change the United States of America.”

The harasser didn’t seem to realize that Puerto Rico is, in fact, part of the United States America.

Irizarry had a permit for the space, officials said, and she says in the video she was there for a birthday party.

Felony hate crime is a class 3 felony, and carries a possible sentence of 2 to 5 years, but probation is also an option, Simonton said. She would not comment on whether prosecutors would seek probation or jail time in the case.

Trybus had also already been charged with misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct. Those counts remain, but they could be dropped because the hate crime charges are the more serious, Simonton said.

It was not clear if Trybus had an attorney and a home phone number for him could not be immediately found. Trybus is scheduled to appear in court on a bond hearing on Friday, Simonton said.

The video of the exchange sparked outrage, and even Puerto Rico’s governor, Ricardo Rosselló, weighed in and called it “appalling” and he said “a Puerto Rican woman was brutally harassed by a bigot while an officer did not interfere.”

On Wednesday, Patrick Connor, a Forest Preserves of Cook County police officer who was being investigated for allegedly failing to act during the harassment resigned on Wednesday, and the county board commissioner on Thursday apologized and called the incident “truly appalling, gut wrenching, and a real wake-up call to everyone.”

Shannade Clermont From Bad Girl’s Club Accused Of Stealing Identity Of A Dead Man

Shannade Clermont, the Bad Girl’s Club alum, found herself arrested by the police for identity theft.

According to a statement released by the US Attorney’s Office For The Southern District of New York on the 11th of July, Wednesday, the 24-year-old reality star faces charges of access device fraud, aggravated identity theft, and wire fraud.

Reportedly, Ms. Clermont used the anonymous man’s credit cards after she met up with him for a “prostitution date,” in January 2017. The following morning, the police found his dead body, presumably due to a drug overdose, but they didn’t know who he was with at the time of his death.

While she was in his apartment, she stole his credit cards and made $20,000 worth of fraudulent purchases on two of his cards in the succeeding days.

The US Attorney’s Office states that the woman used the money to pay her telephone bills, her rent, as well as flights, clothing, and other random items online.

The reality star also created a fake email account in his name, then used it to create a Western Union account, and then wire transferred $1,000 to herself. Geoffrey S. Berman said in his statement that Ms. Clermont lived up to her reputation as a “Bad Girl” in Bad Girl’s Club.

The prosecutor said in his official statement before the court that she stole credit card information from a deadman and used it to purchase thousands of dollars worth of merchandise under fraudulent pretenses.

The case is particularly malicious because rather than reporting that he had died to authorities, she capitalized on his death.  The Associated Press claims Ms. Clermont was arrested on Wednesday and then was released on $100,000 bail.

Shannade and her sister, Shannon, appeared in the 14th season of the reality series, which aired three years ago in 2015, and they also modeled for Kanye West’s Yeezy and were featured in several music videos. Unfortunately, it looks like her days as a reality and music video star are over.
