Justice.gov – 21-year-old Tennessee rapper Lontrell D. Williams (a/k/a Pooh Shiesty) is being held without bond in a federal detention center pending trial on charges that he participated in the shooting of two men during a street purchase of marijuana and high-end sneakers.
It is alleged that during the transaction, the defendants shot the sellers with semi-automatic weapons. Then, Williams and two alleged accomplices drove away from the scene, taking with them the sneakers and marijuana they had not paid for, according to the court documents. The shooting victims survived.
According to CNN (Delhi) — A defendant standing trial for murder has been killed by two men, believed to be members of a rival gang, who shot him in a New Delhi courtroom.
Two gunmen dressed as lawyers opened fire on Friday afternoon while a jailed gang member was being presented in court, according to the Delhi Police.
“Two gangsters killed in immediate counterfire by police as they opened fire in lawyers’ attire at a gangster UTP (Under Trial Prisoner) in Rohini court premises this afternoon. All 3 gangsters dead. No other injury or death occurred,” Delhi Police wrote in a tweet.
Damn! It’s getting crazier & crazier in them streets. They literally were willing to die about revenge or whatever they were willing to die about, and they did.
The wife of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman was due to be sentenced this month but according to ABC Chicago News, her court date has been delayed.
Former beauty queen, turned drug felon, Emma Coronel, already pleaded guilty this summer in a cartel conspiracy but mysteriously her Washington, D.C. sentencing date was just put off for one month.
In June, Emma Coronel pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute narcotics and financial crimes. She was to be sentenced in two weeks; facing ten years in prison to life; a far more consequential punishment for a 31-year-old perhaps than her 64-year-old drug lord husband.

Allegedly inmates have taken over due to staffing shortages at Rikers Island, one of the most dangerous prisons in the US.
In the video below, inmates can be seen dancing with bottles of liquor & money allegedly filmed from smuggled cell phones.
According to NY Post, the staffing shortages have also spawned significant increases in violent beatdowns & drug overdoses.
The head of the city’s jails acknowledged “serious problems” at Rikers Island, just hours after The Post exclusively revealed video clips of three inmates attacking another and a group of inmates partying inside a cell.
The level of disorder here is deeply, deeply troubling. I’m not going to deny that there are serious problems here.
I just returned from Rikers Island where a group of elected officials exercised our legal right to inspect correctional facilities. What I witnessed was a humanitarian crisis. A horror house of abuse and neglect. I'll share more soon but for now my message is simple: decarcerate.
