sheriffs-deputy-darren-goforth.jpg Shannon J. Miles allegedly gunned down Harris County Deputy Darren Goforth without any warning or reason at a Chevron gas station.  The Houston Sheriff deputy died from the bullet wounds.  Miles is charged with capital murder.  Miles has a criminal record going back a decade. Despite the record, Miles spent little time actually in jail.  Why?
Shannon J. Miles, past record includes convictions for resisting arrest and disorderly conduct with a firearm, yet he served little jail time.  Allegedly, Miles criminal behavior may have been mistakenly fueled by "Black Lives Matter" program.  The attack was unprovoked. The death of Darren Goforth, a 10-year veteran of the Harris County Sheriff's Office reminds us that all lives matter.
This country has problems and it goes beyond President Obama changing the name of Mt. McKinley, signing a bad deal with Iran, or resuming relationships with Cuba.

41- year-old Vester Flanagan was a publicity seeking coward.  He snuck up behind journalist Alison Parker and cameraman, Adam Ward and fatally shot them.  Sick Vester Flanagan filmed the murder and then posted the film on twitter.  Another woman was also shot but fortunately she survived. Flanagan on the other hand took his own life after trying to flee the police in a high speed chase.

Social media posts by Flanagan demonstrate his brazen insanity and lack of remorse.  This trend of cold blooded murders must be stopped.  Banning publicity of these heinous crimes may be a step in the right direction. Alison Parker was 24.  Cameraman Adam Ward was 27.  Both Parker and Ward deserved much better.

Jared the Subway Guy A Sub Par Person? ~by Legal Pub

Jared Fogle had a nice run with Subway. He was the go to guy for marketing.  It appears, however, that Jared was also inappropriately running after minors with less than pure intentions.  Jared is accused of paying for sex acts with minors and receiving child pornography that was allegedly produced by Russell Taylor, the former director of his charitable foundation whose goal was to educate the population about childhood obesity.  Federal prosecutors are taking the charges very seriously.  Allegations accuse Fogle of possessing pornography that included at least 12 minors.  If convicted, Fogle could serve 5 to 12 years in prison.

A count in the information alleges engaging in sex with a minor and distribution and receipt of child pornography- not minor accusations! At this point, while Fogle is innocent until proven guilty, it is believed that Jared's Attorney, Ron Elberger, has already reached a deal with the prosecution which guarantees at least a five year sentence with not more than a 12 year,  month sentence for Jared.  The deal, if accepted, also requires Fogle to pay $100,000 dollars in restitution to each of the 14 victims.  Good old Jared will also be required to join the club of registered sex offenders and undergo treatment for sexual disorders.  Jared is 37 years-old, married man who lives in Zionsville, Indiana.

One of the alleged victims was apparently a 17 year-old girl from New York who met Jared in his Ritz Carlton Hotel room. More offensive is that Jared Fogle allegedly sent texts soliciting access to minors as young as 14 or 15.

As large 200 pound drop in Jared's weight from eating Subway can't possible match the size of the fall from grace that Jared has brought upon himself.

Tom Brady Appeals NFL Suspension ~by Legal Pub

Brady just does not accept defeat on or off the football field. The 457 page transcript  from the June 22, 2015 hearing is being made public despite initial reports that it would be kept confidential. U.S. District Judge Richard Berman removed any doubt that the transcript is available to the public who may be interested in the NFLP-NFL litigation.  In the questioning, Brady denied any involvement in deflating footballs in the AFC Championship game with the Colts.

Brady did admit that he let Patriot assistants know that he preferred footballs at 12.5 psi (NFL rules provide that balls shall be within the range of 12.5 and 13.5 psi.)
If Brady was not involved in the under-inflation of the footballs, he could still be in trouble if he failed to cooperate with the NFL.  Brady destroyed his cell phone; however, there does not appear to be a requirement in the collective bargaining agreement that requires a player to turn over his cell phone to the NFL.  So should Tom Brady's suspension be lifted?  Patriot opponents probably hope not.
