Jay Z helps bail out incarcerated dads for Father’s Day
Jay Z isn’t the only one having a very special Father’s Day this year. Thanks to the rapper, many fathers who are currently behind bars awaiting bail will now be going home.
The Songwriter’s Hall of Fame inductee recently penned an op-ed for Time in which he not only identified the for-profit bail bond industry and “its predatory lending scheme” as one of the major factors contributing to the United States being one of the most incarcerated countries in the world, but also pledged to give money to organizations that would help bail out men currently being held pending bail.

Why wasn’t she standing by Bill on day one of his trial? She’s probably still mad as hell he cheated on her. Hell has no fury like a woman scorned. The big question is will Cosby testify and will he be believed by the jury. Or, will the jury see him as Cliff Huxtable?

Bill Cosby arrived at court Monday morning for Day 6 of his sexual assault trial and the start of the defense side of the case, accompanied by his wife of 53 years, Camille. Camille Cosby’s arrival marked the first time during the trial of the comedian once known as America’s Dad that a family member was at his side, reports the AP. The couple have four daughters. The prosecution rested its case Friday after five swift days of testimony in the case that could send the 79-year-old Cosby to prison for the rest of his life, and the question now hanging over the case is whether the TV star will testify. Cosby’s spokesman said last week that the comic might take the stand, but his lawyers were mum.
Cosby could charm jurors by testifying. But experts said the legal risks would be considerable. “He could be a fantastic witness. … He’s an actor and he’s a very good actor,” says Duquesne University School of Law professor Wes Oliver. But “he is potentially opening the door to a whole lot of cross-examination that they fought really hard to keep out.” And that’s not all: Read on…http://www.newser.com/story/244166/wife-heads-to-trial-with-cosby-for-first-time.html

HIV Rate Could Hit 50% for Gay and Bisexual Black Men in US
A conjugal visit is a scheduled period in which an inmate of a prison or jail is permitted to spend several hours or days in private with a visitor, usually their legal spouse. The parties may engage in sexual activity.
Conjugal visits are not the norm for most of the male inmates serving time in prison. Many are serving twenty five years to life without any physical contact with the opposite sex. Self satisfaction only goes so far, the need for human contact with a woman is a natural desire. Denying men that act will cause men to turn to each other sexually and oftentimes, emotionally until the mind of these men becomes blind to the fact they are having sex with each other to satisfy that emotional and sexual need. Unprotected sex is dangerous for anyone and for inmates the thought of contracting HIV is in the back of their minds but they take the risk believing they are on lockdown and may not get to be with a woman intimately for quite a long time. Oftentimes, when some inmates are eventually released, the desire to continue being sexually intimate with a man continues because the act is what they were accustomed to while in prison so then they are trying to be men who want to have sex with women so they would no longer question their manhood.

A video posted on social media Sunday shows at least three San Antonio police officers forcibly detaining a 14-year-old black girl. In the footage shot by a bystander, one officer appears to punch her in the face.
“It looks like the officer punched the girl with a closed fist,” said Artessia “Tess” House, one of the girl’s lawyers.
Warning: Video contains graphic images.
The girl, whose name HuffPost is withholding because she is a minor, was attending a quinceanera on the night of May 20. During the party, two adult male attendees got into an altercation indoors with one accusing the other of becoming “inappropriate with the juveniles,” according to a preliminary police report provided by the San Antonio Police Department.
The cop claims the girl hit him and he reacted in retaliation.
