I have lost track of how many of these stories i have posted just this week alone smh. This was a sting operation to buy guns from Eric Harris by the police he notices he is being set up just watch what happens after.
This is the first 3 episodes of the 8 part series done by Thomas Morton & Noisey. There have been a few recent documentaries highlighting Chicago such as The Field by WSHH , Fly Glory by @DatKnockDesign.
This is a 3 part documentary it’s a few months old but it’s worth checking out. It features many up & coming Chicago artists. You may know a few such as Chief Keef , Lil Reese & Lil Durk. It also goes into the Lil JoJo story as well as various other murders in the Chicago gang violence culture over the past few years that sparked some of these beef’s it’s pretty detailed and worth checking out.
Yesterday we had the chance of hearing from Juror B37 who explained how the jury went through this process. We also found out she had a book deal and was going to profit off this tragedy which made people even more angry after the fact. After watching her interview on Anderson Cooper #AC360 you could easily tell why the trial went in favor of Zimmerman. She made numerous questionable statements such as her opinions on Rachel Jeantel & you could also see she couldn’t relate to the victim. If you didn’t have a chance to see it make sure you check it out. A twitter user by the name of @MoreAndAgain tweeted @SharleneMartin who gave the juror a book deal a message about her thoughts on the book. It was followed by numerous people doing the same thing also sending emails faxes etc. Late night into early Tuesday a statement was issued saying that Juror B37 has changed her mind & the book wont be released. This was good news to hear because no one should be profiting off this and it goes to show you the power of social networks.
This film has already won a few awards at the Sundance Film Festival but is out today in select cities check your listings. This film should be powerful i am looking forward to this. If you’re not familiar with the case google Oscar Grant.
