Happy Non denomination holidays.  As Bing Crosby once sang, I’m dreaming of a White Christmas, but he certainly did not mean it this way…

Rick James Cocaine

Truer words have never been spoken Rick...

I wasn’t dreaming of a white Christmas, but reading this made me think of brotherly love and I came to the realizaation that I don’t love my brother this much…

SOUTH CAROLINA (PIX11)—
After eating an ounce of cocaine hidden in his brother’s buttocks, a South Carolina man died soon after.Deangelo Mitchell, 23, and his brother Wayne, 20, were in the back of a North Charleston Police Department cruiser on Nov. 30. The duo was being transported to jail when they began whispering about narcotics hidden inside the older sibling.

The Mitchells were arrested when a police officer found three small bags of cocaine underneath a rear seat of their 2001Chrysler. It is evident in video footage that Deangelo Mitchell encouraged his younger brother to ingest the cocaine. The older Mitchell has a lengthy record and was concerned that he could face life in prison if convicted of a narcotics charge. “I can’t get no more strikes,” he told his brother.

He further directed his brother to “Eat that s***” and “Chew that s***.”

In the footage, Wayne Mitchell can be seen, in handcuffs, reaching back to retrieve the cocaine from his brother. He then drops his head while he eats the cocaine.

Wayne Mitchell soon after began convulsing and bleeding from his mouth. “White powder residue” was found on the rear seat of the police cruiser, cops noted. Deangelo later said “he believed his brother swallowed an ounce of cocaine.”

Wayne Mitchell died within an hour of ingesting the cocaine.

Deangelo Mitchell was initially charged with narcotics trafficking and was released from custody after posting $50,000 bond. But after a review of the police footage, authorities rearrested him Tuesday, charging him with involuntary manslaughter in connection with his brother’s death.

Why was he acting like a cheerleader?  I mean, c’mon man…he is already doing you a solid…
What do you tell your family about this? Holidays are definitively going to be awkward from now on. Worse, is that there is video of the act…

All day yesterday, I thought about what we lost and he still hasn’t fully hit me yet. The music was inspiring, and mood changing. The poetry coming from Tupac could be a total attitude adjustment.

Your music still motivates others...the test of a true legend

A true artist/poet has been gone for 14 years yesterday and his music still inspires others to create good music and tell the stories of the streets that need to be heard by others.  It’s been a long time and that void has not and really will not be filled by others.  That is what makes the loss still so painful.  We need good music, and all we are getting is bubblegum rap for the most part.  We need Biggie, we need Tupac.

They were like brothers...it turned into a modern day Cain and Abel possibly

When I hear Dear Mama, I think of my own mother, who passed away over twenty years ago. That song as the ability to make me both happy and sad at the same time. It never fails to pull on th heartstrings.

Me and My Girlfriend always gets me to think about how Jay-Z stole my mans shit, and how clever he was with the word play to talk about the criminality and the love of firearms.

I get around brings back memories of college parties and going out to the club chasing the box. That was an immediate party song that would get people up and shaking.

While I have down down the spectrum to agnostic about religion, Hail Mary brings back time in the church as a little boy. Ronin and I used to be ushers in church and sing in the choir.  We needed forgiveness for the things that we did as kids.

I don’t know if we will have a poet in the same way as Tupac ever again. It really was disheartening to be watching TV in Hawaii this weekend and seeing the VH1 top 100 performers and to see Tupac in the low 60’s. Rap may not be your particular cup of tea, but to disrespect him and have Rage against the Machine, Cheap Trick and others ahead of him is ludicrous. But, rap music wasn’t even on this list the last time they did it, so it is baby steps…but Beyonce is ahead of him? child please…

We will never know what really happened that night in LV, but, I miss you and mourn would could have been.

Damn, I'm getting lifted off the sauce!

no one gets banned in Vegas…do they? Well, I guess Paris is the first one.

LAS VEGAS (CBS/AP) — Paris Hilton may be forced to spend her time gambling in Atlantic City.
Hilton was banned Wednesday from two Wynn resorts on the Las Vegas Strip, and her boyfriend was dismissed as a nightclub partner following their arrests in a vehicle that police said reeked of marijuana.
Wynn Resorts Ltd. spokeswoman Jennifer Dunne told The Associated Press that Hilton is barred from Wynn Las Vegas and Encore.
Meanwhile, boyfriend Cy Waits was “separated” from his job after less than a week as top managing partner of the Tryst Nightclub at Wynn and XS The Nightclub at Encore, Dunne said in a statement.

Now, your man is fired.  Ask yourself, was it really worth it?  Why was he driving anyway?  You should have a driver or be in a limo if you are going out to get your swerve on.

Waits, his lawyer and a lawyer and publicist for the 29-year-old Hilton did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Smart.  Maybe the only smart thing you have done recently…But, what really, what could you say?  I was smoking weed and I got my boyfriend caught up?

The moves come after Hilton was arrested Friday for investigation of felony cocaine possession. Waits was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Charges have not yet been filed.
Hilton was arrested inside the Wynn resort, where a police lieutenant reported a small plastic bag containing 0.8 grams of cocaine fell into his hand when Hilton reached for a tube of lip balm in a purse.

See Paris, remember wen we saw your weed (that doesn't even look like good weed, which is shameful with your budget) coming out of your purse

See Paris, remember wen we saw your weed (that doesn't even look like good weed, which is shameful with your budget) coming out of your purse

You knew that you have coke in your purse.  Yes, it was only a gram, but why are you fishing in your purse?  You KNEW it was in there and you only ran the risk of exposing the coke.  You only led them to look harder at you, especially when they found the butt of joint you tossed out the window.

Memo to Paris…unless you are in CA or other weed tolerant states and you have proper paperwork, don’t smoke weed…and definitely do not do it in the car…

The New York City-born celebrity socialite is scheduled for arraignment Oct. 27 and would face probation if convicted.
A police report made public Wednesday said the suspected butt of a marijuana cigarette was found in the Cadillac Escalade in which the couple was stopped in front of the Wynn Las Vegas hotel-casino.
Waits, 34, was driving. He had bloodshot eyes, smelled of alcohol and wobbled as he failed two field sobriety tests, the arresting officer said.
Waits allowed blood to be drawn when he was booked into the Clark County jail in downtown Las Vegas, Officer Bill Cassell said. Results won’t be released until the case reaches court.
Waits spent a night in jail on suspicion of misdemeanor driving under the influence before being freed on $2,000 bail with a Nov. 29 court date.
Dunne said Waits’ twin brother, Jesse Waits, is continuing as general partner of the Wynn resorts’ Tryst and XS clubs.

Well at least his bro will still be able to get freaky in the clubs.

Nice boob job, but you should work on the dye job...no way the drapes match the carpet

I am….

that she was stupid enough to get caught.

I would think that you would have a bagman for that kind of behavior.  You should never be caught with it.  You should not be photographed with it.  But, the drug is good enough that you cannot lay off it’s clutches.

Paris Hilton was arrested on the Las Vegas Strip late Friday after a police motorcycle officer smelled marijuana smoke wafting from a black Cadillac Escalade driven by her boyfriend, then found a small amount of cocaine in her purse.

A crowd quickly gathered when Hilton and Las Vegas nightclub mogul Cy Waits were stopped about 11:30 p.m. PDT Friday in the vehicle near the Wynn Las Vegas resort, police said.

The 29-year-old celebrity socialite was taken into the hotel “to keep her safe” during the initial investigation, police Lt. Wayne Holman said.

Police Officer Marcus Martin said the motorcycle officer pulled the Escalade over on Las Vegas Boulevard after noticing smoke that smelled like marijuana. Police later found a substance in Hilton’s purse that tests showed to be cocaine, Martin said. He didn’t say how much of the drug was found.

This dude doesn’t have a long career in Vegas is he is going to arrest moguls…

Hilton was arrested on suspicion of felony cocaine possession.

Waits, 34, was arrested on misdemeanor suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Both were booked into the Clark County jail, where Martin said Hilton was released without bail about 2:45 a.m. Saturday.

Less than an hour later, Hilton’s Twitter account was updated with a posting that said the actress was in bed watching the television show “Family Guy,” and then that she was going to sleep. It was unclear if the tweets came from her, were posted by time-release or were sent by someone else.

If convicted of the low-grade felony, Hilton would get probation. Any violation of probation would be punishable by one to four years in Nevada state prison.

Clark County District Attorney David Roger declined comment Saturday about the case.

Hilton’s attorney, David Chesnoff, told The Associated Press on Saturday morning that he was still gathering facts about the arrest.

“I caution people not to rush to judgment,” he said.

No, its okay.  I am going to rush to judgement.  She had the weed incident in South Africa during the world cup and she has been seen on camera smoking and she hangs out with cokeheads, so I am going to rush here to judge.  She is a coke head.  Fortunately, she has money, as I bet she would suck %$&@ for money, like Bob Saget.

Damn, be more DISCRETE!

Waits’ lawyer, Richard Schonfeld, said Waits posted $2,000 bail and was expected to be released Saturday.

Court appearance dates for Hilton and Waits were not immediately available.

Schonfeld said he was “troubled by the circumstances” leading to the arrest, but declined to specify his concerns.

“As the case proceeds, a lot of facts are going to come to light that will ultimately lead to exoneration,” Schonfeld said.

Hilton’s manager did not immediately respond early Saturday to telephone calls for comment. Hilton’s publicist, Dawn Miller, did not immediately return an e-mail message.

A spokeswoman for Wynn Resorts in Las Vegas declined immediate comment.

Waits and his twin brother, Jesse, are managing partners of the Tryst Nightclub inside Wynn Las Vegas, Drai’s after hours club at Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall & Saloon, and XS The Nightclub at Wynn’s Encore resort.

How does this dude not have a bagman?  You run one of the most popular clubs in Vegas?  All you need to do is get home or get to the club BEFORE doing your drugs.  Out in the open is foolish.

Earlier this week, Hilton was in the news when a 31-year-old man allegedly tried to break into her Los Angeles home.

Authorities have said that someone carrying two big knives banged on Hilton’s window Tuesday. She posted a photo of the arrest on Twitter and described it as “scary.” Nathan Lee Parada faces a felony burglary charge.

Hilton was arrested this summer after the Brazil-Netherlands World Cup match in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, on suspicion of possession of marijuana. The case was then dropped at a midnight court hearing.

Hilton pleaded no contest in 2007 to alcohol-related reckless driving and was sentenced to 45 days in jail. After spending about 23 days in jail, Hilton told CNN host Larry King that the experience caused her to re-evaluate the role partying played in her life. She said she wanted “to help raise money for kids and for breast cancer and multiple sclerosis.”

While most famous for her tabloid exploits and reality TV series “The Simple Life,” Hilton has appeared in the films “Bottoms Up,””The Hottie & the Nottie” and “House of Wax.”

Nothing better than a crack and peanut butter sandwich! The rocks give it such a great texture...

but seriously, it was about time that this disparity got fixed.  We here at Too Old are not pro crack,  but at least make the sentencing fair between two similar (if not equal) drugs. Although after watching this video, maybe we should make crack harder to get, or raise the punishment for having it.   Ignore the singing in the beginning, but the rest of the video is hilarious…

The Miami Herald puts the news into context

WASHINGTON — The House of Representatives passed a historic bill Wednesday that narrows sentencing disparities between crack and powder cocaine convictions, which civil rights and civil liberties experts say contributed to the disproportionate imprisonment of African-Americans in recent decades.

Now, I want to clear something up here.  the people getting arrested are crackheads, and/or crack dealers.  Let’s not make it seem like they were caught up in a police sting through entrapment.  The one thing to remember is that they would have been in jail for dealing powder cocaine as well.  So, the numbers would have been similar, minus the people who would not have gotten involved in the coke game due to finances and connections.  It’s not like with coke they give you a free pass or anything…

I believe in WHITE POWER....wait I meant WHITE POWDER...CRACK!

The Senate passed its version of the bill in March. President Barack Obama, who during the 2008 presidential campaign said the current legal disparity “cannot be justified and should be eliminated,” is expected to sign the legislation.

By voice vote, the House altered a law implemented in 1986 during the early phase of the crack cocaine epidemic. It required anyone convicted of possession of 5 grams of crack to be sentenced to at least five years in prison.

Many lawmakers and organizations such as the NAACP and the American Civil Liberties Union complained for nearly a quarter-century that the law was unfair because someone convicted of crack possession got the same mandatory sentence as someone convicted of possessing 100 times that amount of powder cocaine, a drug more popular among whites.

Then keep your crack in powder form, until it is time to smoke up!.  Or, just don’t do crack. Because we all know crack is whack!

A 2009 report by the Sentencing Project, a liberal advocacy group, found that drug use rates were similar among racial and ethnic groups, but that sentencing among the groups for cocaine violations was vastly different, in large part because of the disparity between sentences for crack and powder cocaine.

In 2006, 81.8 percent of crack cocaine defendants were black, 8.8 percent were white and 8.4 percent were Hispanic, according the Sentencing Project report. For the same year, 57.5 percent of powder cocaine defendants were Hispanic, 27 percent were African-American and 14.7 were percent white.

Well, Crack is cheap and who doesn’t like a bargain!

Did you say 5 o'clock crack giveaway!

“African American drug defendants have a 20 percent greater chance of being sentenced to prison than white drug defendants,” the Sentencing Project report said. “Between 1994 and 2003, the average time served by African Americans for drug offenses increased by 62 percent, compared to an increase of 17 percent for white drug offenders.”

The House bill raises the five-year mandatory minimum sentencing trigger for crack possession from five grams to 28 grams and eliminates mandatory minimum sentencing for simple possession of crack. Possession of 500 grams of powder cocaine carries a mandatory minimum five years in prison under the bill.

“In passing the Fair Sentencing Act today, the House sent a bill to President Obama that is a step forward in addressing the fairness of our sentencing laws,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. “This legislation reduces the disparity between sentences for crack and powder cocaine – a step long overdue.”

Civil rights groups applauded the House vote and urged Obama to sign the bill quickly.

“Because of the mandatory minimum jail sentence for those convicted of possession of 5 grams of crack cocaine or more, people of color are being put in prisons at much higher rates than their Caucasian counterparts, and the judges have no discretion to mitigate the sentence for first-time or nonviolent offenders or special circumstances,” NAACP President Benjamin Jealous said. “This legislation is just the first step in eliminating disparities in sentencing, and we will continue to push for the elimination of this racially discriminatory sentencing disparity.”

How about we push to get people off crack?  I know the law had a racial bias to it.  But, let’s not celebrate like this is Brown vs. Board of Education or anything.  The specter of drugs is something that the communities need to work on.  This might be a first step, but keeping the kids off crack might be something to work on as well.

break your mothers back...

Just the tip, just for a minute...

Lindsey is only in this movie for a hot minute and of course, she has a nude scene in it.  It clearly will not be a Two Mules for Sister Sara moment… She is going to be reduced to these types of roles unless she gets her act together.

Lindsay Lohan is no stranger to shocking and judging by stills and posters recently released for her next movie the troubled starlet intends to keep fanning the flames of controversy.

A new poster for Machete, directed by Robert Rodriguez, shows Lohan posing as a nun, in full habit, licking the barrel of a gun.

A still from the movie has also been released showing Lohan’s character, The Sister, pointing a handgun at the camera.

Robert Rodriguez was clutch in the movie El Marachi, so I am obviously going to give this movie a look-see.  But, really, for the other actors. De Niro, Don Johnson and Steven Seagal are in the movie and they will make it worth bootlegging.

That must have been some party...

Now I understand why Maradonna was so upset and why he took the job as coach in the first place.

The Colombian soccer team didn’t make the World Cup, but the country’s police made a great save to intercept a replica tournament trophy made entirely out of cocaine.

Colombia authorities seized the 14-inch replica trophy bound for Madrid at Bogota Airport Saturday, CNN reported.

The painstakingly engraved statue was painted gold with green stripes on the base to match the real trophy. It was bound, along with several team jerseys packed in the box, for an address in Madrid when it was intercepted in a warehouse inside the airport.

Colombian National Police said the “bad condition” of the gold paint on the trophy’s surface is what tipped them off.

The real World Cup trophy is almost as valuable — cast in solid 18-carat gold — but weighs about ten pounds less.

You have to applaud the creativity of the drug smugglers. Necessity is the mother of invention…

Doing lines has a different meaning to Maradona

Is it wrong for me to suggest that I have some for her to "play"with?

This is a female tennis player that I will always have a fondness for, because she was a party girl.  One thing that will stick with me is that when she burst on the scene, I was 18-19 years old. One day, during a BBQ over my friends house, someone in the peanut gallery threw out a “tight muffin” hoot on one of her returns.  At the time, she was 14-15 years old, and it was made the commenter had a death wish, “pound you in the ass”  prison desire with remarks like that.

As she grew to be of age, the comment always stuck with me, and became one that was fitting.  Throw in the party time atmosphere, and she was someone that I would root for in a hypothetical sense.  Looking at the headlines, I would think positively on success and root against whoever beat her.  Now, I am rooting to beat the “accidental overdose”. ESPN reports the story today

Monday, June 28, 2010

Former tennis star Jennifer Capriati was recovering Monday from an accidental overdose of prescribed medication, a family spokeswoman said.

The 34-year-old Capriati, once ranked No. 1 in a career sidetracked by personal troubles, was in stable condition and expected to make a full recovery, spokeswoman Lacey Wickline told The Associated Press. She declined to identify the medication.

Capriati was rushed to a South Florida hospital early Sunday morning, she said. Wickline would not say how Capriati was found or who called emergency services.

“In response to an outpouring of concern and support shown by Jennifer’s fans and friends worldwide, we would like to acknowledge that Jen is recuperating at a South Florida hospital from an accidental overdose of medication prescribed to Jen by her personal physician,” Wickline said. “Jen is recovering fully and stably.”

The Capriati family asks that you respect our privacy at this time. As we will provide updates when available,” she added.

Public records show Capriati owns a condo on Singer Island in Palm Beach County, Fla. Riviera Beach police and Palm Beach County Fire Rescue, which oversee the area, did not have a record of what happened. Nearby hospitals did not have a patient listed under Capriati’s name.

Celebrity website TMZ first reported that Capriati was hospitalized.

At Wimbledon, Venus and Serena Williams paused after wins Monday to extend their concern.

“I probably will definitely see how that goes and pray for everyone involved,” Serena Williams said. “If there’s any way I can do anything to help, reach out, I definitely will do that.”

Added Venus Williams: “I remember her match against Monica in the semifinals of the [French] Open. I remember watching that and just thinking how great that tennis was. So definitely a lot of fond memories just watching her growing up, and obviously even playing against her, respecting her game so much.”

Capriati won three majors — two Australian Opens, one French Open — and a gold medal in the 1992 Olympics. She also was the youngest semifinalist at the French Open in 1990, when at age 14 she lost to eventual champion Monica Seles.

But the child prodigy burned out of tennis and retired several times from a game she had been pushed to play nearly her entire life.

She was arrested in 1993 for shoplifting at a Florida mall, and again in 1994 for marijuana possession. She came back strong several times, however, from personal issues and injuries.

Capriati reached the U.S. Open semifinals in 2003, losing to Justine Henin. She failed to gain any momentum from that run, and soon faded from the game again.

Here is to you getting it back together and getting in charge of the problem.

Say it aint so!

Nothing to smile about with this charge....

But it probably is.  Everyone deserves a fair trial, but damn L.T.  You should have enough money to stay out of trouble, unless you are not right in the head.

The USA Today details the charge.

NFL Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor has been arrested for rape in New York, according to a report from WCBS-TV in New York City.The former New York Giants linebacker was taken into custody early this morning by the Town of Ramapo police after being accused of raping someone in the Holidome Hotel in Montebello, north of New York City, WCBS said.

Ramapo Detective Lt. Brad Weidel told the AP that Taylor, 51, hadn’t been formally charged. He said charges will be filed when the police investigation is completed.

The Journal Newssays the alleged victim is a 15-year-old girl who was beaten. The Journal News also says it has learned Taylor will be charged with third-degree rape, which involves intercourse with a minor.

The station said a new conference is expected later today, where police will give more details.

Taylor’s troubled past includes repeated drug problems. He tested positive for cocaine in 1987 and in 1988 was suspended by the NFL for 30 days when he failed another test.

In an autobiography, Taylor admitted resuming heavy cocaine usage when he retired. He entered drug rehab twice in 1995, but later was arrested two times in three years for allegedly attempting to buy cocaine from undercover officers

In a November 2003 interview with 60 Minutes, Taylor said he spent thousands of dollars a day on narcotics at the peak of his drug abuse.

A 10-time Pro Bowler, Taylor was the NFL’s MVP in 1986 and the league’s Defensive Player of the Year in 1981, 1982 and 1986.

You can't get it started that early (or late) and then expect to get to work in one piece. Plus it looks like she has a hospital gown on.

There have been many times that my students have made me think about drinking, but it has only been a thought.  Tonya Neff was taking it to the extreme.  Teaching is a difficult profession.  While it may be hard, you just can’t go as far as she did.

THERMAL, Calif. (AP) — A Southern California school teacher has been arrested for allegedly teaching while drunk.

Toro Canyon Middle School teacher Tonya Neff was taken to the Indio jail Tuesday afternoon and booked for investigation of felony child endangerment.

Administrators at Thermal’s Toro Canyon Middle School told the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department that the 47-year-old teacher was apparently intoxicated on campus.

The standard teachers attempt to strive for.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Mike Tapp says Neff had taken prescription drugs and alcohol and an alcoholic beverage was found inside a container.

Coachella Valley school district Superintendent Ricardo Medina says there was never a threat to Neff’s seventh-grade students. Neff has been placed on leave.

She had a little too much to drink...Plus, where are her pants? She might have a little more to worry about than her inability to hold her alcohol..

What a combo!  Pills and booze make Homer something, something, something.  In this economic climate, how can you really think that this was a good move?  Plus, you will have to find a new job, since your teaching license is going to be pulled.  That must have been a great drink.  I wonder if I can get the recipe?

To make her feel better, she is not the only teacher getting caught up…
