After hearing about the tragic death of Philando Castille, a woman came up with a way to save black lives during traffic stops.

Her fear was that what happened to Philando could happen to her own son.

She designed a pouch. The pouch clips on to the air vent in your car. You clip it to the vent closest to the driver’s side window.

In the pouch you put your driver’s license, insurance and registration. You also include your gun license if you have one.

That way, when the police officers comes up to your car you are not reaching for anything and your hands stay on the steering wheel.

It retails for $12.

The discounted Lyft trips will be available all day Saturday in Boston, San Francisco, Colorado, Las Vegas, Seattle, Detroit, Ottawa and Toronto.

Vic Mensa had to deal with law enforcement once again, this time for gun possession.

While riding through Beverly Hills, the Chicago rapper was pulled over for running a stop sign and having tinted windows, according to law enforcement sources. Once he was pulled over, sources say he told the officers that he had a gun in his car and he showed them his concealed carry permit. Unfortunately, the permit was for another state. According to the police report, Mensa was arrested and booked on a felony count of carrying a concealed weapon. He was released from jail on a $35,000 bail after spending the night.

This is not the first time Mensa has had an encounter with the law. Last summer, he fumed of being racially profiled and accused of stealing from an expensive Beverly Hills store. After thirty minutes of being searched, authorities found no stolen items. You can watch Mensa recording some of the incident below.

Mensa has been a consistent voice against police misconduct and brutality. He has yet to comment on his recent felony count.

Wow: This Customer Was Offered Domino’s Pizza With A Side Of Drugs

As a customer awaiting your Domino’s order, you usually expect a delicious hot pizza and if you’re lucky, some great customer service. However, one Domino’s customer got a little extra with a calling card from a drug dealer.

This past Friday, February 10, an unidentified Liverpool, England Domino’s delivery person left a contact card offering a customer drugs such as, “Weed, MDMA, pills, ket raw coke & much more.”

The incident was reported to Merseyside Police and is one of many similar incidents supposedly occurring since November. Nina Arnott, a spokesperson for Domino’s, assured the public, “We have suspended the individual in question whilst we investigate this issue in conjunction with Merseyside Police.”

As drug laws continue to be in flux across various states, more conversations are being had about what should and what shouldn’t be legally sold – but, who knew someone would be so bold with their promotional strategies?

North Texas Officer Gives Teen 200 Pushups For Smoking Weed Outside Movie Theater

An African-American Arlington,Texas, police officer is making headlines—not for brutality—but for how we dealt with a teenager who was caught with marijuana.

According to CBS News, off-duty officer Eric Ball the teen the option of being cited for marijuana possession or doing 200 push ups after the boy was caught smoking weed outside of a movie theater. Obviously the teen opted for the pushups. Later on, Ball found the youth’s mother who reportedly hugged and thanked the officer for providing the teen with an alternative punishment.

Ball said that the boy was respectful and realized he’d made a mistake. In addition, Ball played football under coaches who used pushups to ensure discipline,CBS noted.

While this was transpiring Raiza Paradez, a bystander, taped the incident and posted it on Facebook stressing that not all police officers are bad.

She wrote: “Big UP’s to the Arlington Police Officer that made the young black guy that decided to smoke weed on the movie theater parking lot to do push-ups then take him to jail or shoot him just Cuz. We need more cops like this. #Policeeverywhereneedtotakenotes #ArlingtonPoliceDept”

While the video has since gone viral since she posted it last week, Paradez later addressed criticism she had received for posting the video including that she might get the officer fired

There’s more young men out here that need strong men like this in their lives. Sometimes these kids need a second chance God forgives us daily for our sins. Show them they can be better than road they’re going down. Instead of being so quick to throw them in the back of the car or worst shoot and kill them,” she wrote.

Here’s Why Kanye West Was Placed On Involuntary Psychiatric Hold

More news concerning Kanye West‘s recent hospitalization has surfaced.

According to a new TMZ report, it was the rapper’s physician who called 911 after learning he tried to assault a gym staff member. The site also reports the physician, Dr. Michael Farzam, warned the dispatcher that although Kanye wasn’t violent at the moment, he “would become violent when police arrived to help him.”

For obvious reasons, Dr. Farzam also attempted to conceal the superstar’s identity.

From TMZ:

Law enforcement sources tell us, the call came in as a male with mental illness. Dr. Michael Farzam said his patient’s name was “Jim Jones, 39 years old, 5’8″, 175 lbs … suffers from temporary psychosis due to sleep deprivation and dehydration.”

According to the police report the doctor told cops he had placed Kanye on a 5150 psychiatric hold and wanted him taken to UCLA Medical Center. We’re told there’s an issue over whether the doctor actually placed Kanye on a 5150.

Previous reports claim Kanye was handcuffed to a stretcher as he was taken in for psychiatric evaluation. TMZ says that’s just protocol when there is a potential 5150 hold involved.

In a separate article, the site also claims his in-laws are on their way to show him and Kim some moral support.

Kanye West has more Kardashian reinforcements coming his way … Khloe, Kourtney and Kris have taken to the skies. The 3 family members boarded a private jet Tuesday afternoon leaving NYC, after staying behind Monday to honor the late Robert Kardashian at the Angel Ball,” the site writes.

We will continue to keep you updated as more details emerge.

With all the news stories surrounding police brutality in America, it’s not unusual for men of color to feel afraid while interacting with law enforcement.

NFL star Roddy White took to Twitter on Wednesday to describe a traffic stop he said made him concerned for his life. A DeKalb County, Georgia, police officer reportedly pulled White over and put his hand over his holstered gun as he approached his car. The Atlanta Falcons wide receiver said that’s when he grew upset and worried.

According to CNN, White received two traffic tickets and said he wanted to report the officer for his actions, declaring, “It may save the next black man’s life.”

Georgia police say although they are aware of the incident, White has not yet filed a report. If he does, the matter will be investigated by the internal affairs unit.

Watch: DMX Shows Some Love To Police Officers

Puff Daddy And The Family Bad Boy Reunion Tour Presented By Ciroc Vodka And Live Nation - May 21

Count on DMX to be vulnerable and honest about his feelings.

The legendary rapper often shares stories about his life through music, and his performance over the weekend proved to be no different. On Friday, X sang a song of gratitude to the Yonkers, New York cops who saved his life following a reported overdose back in February and performed for free at the Yonkers PD vs. Fire Dept. “Toughman Competition” charity boxing event as a token of his appreciation.

He helped raise about $80,000 for his hometown by performing famous tracks like the “Ruff Ryders Anthem.” Over 2,000 people showed up to X’s mini concert, and judging by the video, they loved every moment of it.

It’s interesting to see cops and civilians come together as the relationship between the Black community and law enforcement becomes more contentious than ever.

LeSean McCoy Wants To Bring Cops To Next Game Against Colin Kaepernick

Philadelphia Eagles 2011 Headshots

While plenty of black NFL players have come out in support of Colin Kaepernick‘s national anthem protest,  LeSean McCoy doesn’t appear to be one of them.

In fact McCoy is taking things a bit further by bringing a group of 15 to 20 cops to the Buffalo Bills’ next game. McCoy said that it has yet to be determined whether the officers will come for Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers or the October 30 game against the New England Patriots.

McCoy is doing it to show the police that they are appreciated despite recent events.

“Just an appreciation type of thing,” McCoy said. “Cause they’re taking so much heat right now. There’s things that are happening that’s definitely wrong but I just feel like there’s bad people, there’s bad cops and there’s good cops.”

The plan is currently being set up through his foundation and says it has nothing to do with Kaepernick’s protest.

“I reached out to them,” McCoy said. “Like I said, it has nothing to do with Kap or the situation. I think that he might be doing the right thing because everybody’s opinion, there’s never a wrong opinion. I think he’s right for what he’s saying we need to do something about what’s going on because it is wrong. Then again, there’s good people and there’s bad people. There’s good cops and bad cops. So I’m just trying to show appreciation.”

Taking A Stand: Delaware Man Confronts Police Questioning Young Boys

The racial profiling epidemic is at an all-time high, and doesn’t seem to be getting better anytime soon.

But one Delaware man got fed up watching a police officer question a group of young boys on their bikes. Damieon Flowers approached the White cops while streaming on Facebook Live. The two officers claimed they were investigating a serious incident in the neighborhood.

Flowers’ video got over 2.5 million views, as he asked cops, “What, he got five felonies?” while they questioned a pre-teen. Flowers advised the juveniles not to talk to the officers: “Y’all didn’t do nothing. Don’t say nothing. You don’t gotta say nothing ’til your mom comes.” Flowers told the cops, “Let ’em go, they ain’t did nothing, they’re babies.”

Flowers turned the camera on himself at the end of the video to vent about the incident. “I about hit that motherf*cker man,” he exclaimed. “I got so much shit inside of me man, I was bout to hit that motherf*cker. Leave them kids alone man, f*ck with me.”

Daria Alexander, the mother of one of the boys, posted a comment thanking Flowers, “Thanks SO much one of the kids was MY son..and I’m on it.. Thanks a million.. it’s not ok .. I told my son you absolutely did nothing wrong..if riding your bike is wrong then damn.”

It’s lucky the incident didn’t escalate into something more dangerous, but amazing Flowers took a stand. Watch the video above; what do you think?

The Shocking Reason This Man Threatened Phaedra Parks With A Bomb

'Unnecessary Trouble ' Video Debut Party

It turns out Phaedra Parks and the man who allegedly threatened her with a bomb have a long history together.

Terrence Cook, also known as Drama, blames The Real Housewives of Atlanta star for his overall downfall in life. Phaedra served as his manager when he pursued a rap career in the early ’00s, and she was also his lawyer in a 2003 robbery case that he ended up doing 12 years for in prison (although Phaedra was eventually removed as counsel).

From TMZ:

We’re told after Cook was released from prison in 2015 … he told friends he was going to Miami to meet up with Phaedra and shoot an episode of ‘Real Housewives.’ While in Miami, we’re told he got seriously injured in a skydiving accident, and has been on the mend since.

Sources close to Cook say he blamed Phaedra for his downfall in life … including his long prison term, defunct rap career, and skydiving injury. For the record, Bravo says Cook was never invited to shoot a ‘Housewives’ episode.

Cook was arrested in connection to the bomb threat yesterday morning. According to TMZ, “he showed up to what he thought was Phaedra’s law office claiming he had a bomb strapped to his leg. Cops said he had an envelope and book, but determined there was no bomb.”

Thankfully, Phaedra is just fine. Leave your thoughts below.
