    Thursday Dec 11 | via The Daily News 

    Fourteen years ago, a group of eight teenagers who lived on Burnham Street in Frayser tried to join the Vice Lords street gang and were rejected.

  • Remembering Marion Barry

    Oct 30, 2014 | via The Memphis Flyer 

    Sometime in the spring of 1990, I had lucked into a gig in Washington, D.C., speaking to a meeting of the National Association of Counties about the relationship between public figures and the media. The meeting was in the Washington Hilton, and, after our session was through, I lingered a while and found myself in another ballroom of the hotel, rubber-necking the conclusion of a dinner that was being addressed by the mayor of Washington, D.C., Marion Barry .

I am on probation for reckless endangerment. I have all of my fees paid and community service hours done. I recently was arrested for marijuana possession, paraphernalia, and charged with a marijuana DUI. I was sober, and I'm confident that the blood test will come back fine and the DUI will get taken care of. But I was still arrested. My PO is going to wait until after my new court case to violate me. This is my first violation. I am a full time student, my record is not bad, I hold 3 jobs. I will pass a million clean drug tests and take a drug class before my hearing. My case is in Shelby County, Division 9. I know that lawyers on this site see VOP cases all the time. What is a REALISTIC expectation of punishment for violation? Anything can happen, but what should I really expect?

I was driving down 240 North bound and the drunk driver ricochet's into the railing at the Perkins exits and hits my car on the passenger side. I was riding with a passenger that did not get hurt. I do have full coverage with State Farm. I was taken by the ambulance to BMH ER, where they ran several x-rays and CAT scans (I have no medical insurance). I suffered abrasions and cuts and now have severe pain in certain parts of my body. The narcotics given to me by the doctor aren't really working. I now also suffer from anxiety to drive again. What options do I have? Can I sue the driver? What do I do?
