  • In New Haven, some see sagging pants as statement, others as fueling stereotype

    The New Haven Register ^ | July 6, 2014 | Shahid Abdul-Karim
    “The saggin’ started in the prison where inmates couldn’t wear belts, but in jail culture things started to transcend,” said community activist Leonard Jahad, the state’s top New Haven probation supervisor, “The left pant leg rolled up meant you’re in a certain gang and both pant legs rolled up meant something else,“ Jahad said. “When pants are down like the kids wear on the streets, in prison, it means you are available to the next man for sexual activity.” Smith, who’s also entertainment director of the youth development organization Ice the Beef, said he and his peers don’t view the...

    A would-be grocery store robber in Arizona has learned the hard way not to mess with an Army Special Forces veteran. The violent encounter was captured on surveillance video at Maen Mdanat's convenience store in Tucson in late April. A camera trained on the entrance to Axis Food Mart captured the business owner toppling his much younger opponent to the ground with a couple of swift kicks and punches after the suspect attacked him inside the store.

    In many of his years as a rapper, Snoop Dogg seemed to embrace guns: he was arrested multiple times for gun possession and lyrics from his songs included references such as “So Snoopy he went straight to the trunk of his car (And what he get?), he got his gun and they start running hard.” But these days, the 42-year-old star, whose real name is Calvin Broadus Jr. and also goes by Snoop Lion, is pushing a decidedly anti-gun message. On Thursday night, he appeared at a benefit here with fellow rapper MC Hammer, Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana...

They were standing at the edge of the dance floor when de Abreu accidentally bumped into Hernandez, smiled at him and did not apologize, according to prosecutors. Haggan said Hernandez became agitated and told his friend that de Abreu had deliberately bumped him,...

    RENTON, Wash. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Richard Sherman wondered if he came to the NFL 20 years too late. The Seattle Seahawks’ All-Pro cornerback wondered if his swagger might have fit better a few decades earlier when that confidence and an unfiltered tongue was perhaps more accepted. “I studied the old school game more than I studied the new school game, and I play it that way. It rubs a lot of people the wrong way,” Sherman said Wednesday. “Giving a true speech after a game, a true passionate speech is old school football. Playing press corner and sitting up there every...

Baldwin was angry that the photographer was trying to take pictures of his wife Hilaria, days after she gave birth to their daughter. The police were called. It was a mess. See photos of the incident below. You'd think instead of fighting, the two could've just chatted about wearing long socks with shorts.

    When Barack Obama said that if he had a son, "he'd look like Trayvon," it perhaps didn't say much for him as a parent.

I wonder, though, did he miss 53 out of 90 days of school and get suspended 3 times during that period? Was he caught with ladies jewelry, a "burglary tool" and drug paraphernalia in school? Did he enjoy fighting and,...

Let’s be honest. Jeantel is not your average witness. She is a 19-year-old Miami resident who is due to complete high school next year. Her speech mannerisms are utterly urban, about as far from the queen’s English as one could imagine. And her disposition on the stand ranged from annoyance to sheer antagonism....

    The scandals swirling around the Obama administration have many journalists scratching their heads as to how “hope and change” seem to have been supplanted by “arrogance and fear.” Perhaps it’s time they revisit one of their original premises about Barack Obama: that he wasn’t influenced by the Chicago Daley machine. You know: the machine that boosted his career and whose protégés — including Valerie Jarrett, David Axelrod, Rahm Emanuel, and his wife, Michelle — he brought to Washington with him. The liberal take on the president was best summed up by Slate magazine’s Jacob Weisberg, who wrote last year that...
