Posted by yoMcLovin on October 7, 2010

People wonder why folks don’t like cops…well here’s a prime example.  These two d*ck-heads robbed an undercover cop for $24,000 of marijuana and $3,000 in cash. 

Peep game

Two Philadelphia police officers have been charged with criminal conspiracy, robbery, kidnapping, unlawful restraint, false imprisonment, theft, and other related charges, according to officials.

Sean Alivera, 31, and Christopher Luciano, 23, allegedly robbed a supposed drug dealer of 20 pounds of marijuana with a street value of $24,000 as well as $3,000 in cash. It turns out that the man they thought was a drug dealer was actually an undercover officer.

Authorities also believe that the two planned to have the drugs redistributed on the street by an un-named drug dealer.

“These two men are a disgrace to their badges, but they should not reflect on the hard working men and women in the police department,” said Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams.

At least five Philadelphia officers have been accused or convicted in the past year of trying to rob drug dealers. Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey reportedly plans to clean house in the 6,600-member department.

“As far as corrupt cops, if they want to continue to do what they’re doing we will find them, we will arrest them and they will be prosecuted, period,” said Ramsey. “There is no middle ground here. Absolutely none.”

TMZ reports:

Mario — the platinum-selling R&B singer — was arrested in Baltimore this morning for allegedly assaulting his own mother in an apartment they share.

According to police, Mario’s mother Shawntia Hardaway — a former heroin addict — told cops Mario had been “throwing and damaging property” … and pushed her around with his hands and forearms.

Cops say they found several broken items inside the apartment — including a broken china cabinet, a busted mirror and a hole in the closet door.

Mario’s mother also told police the 24-year-old singer had attacked her earlier in the week — in which he pushed her “eight feet into a living room wall, where Ms. Hardaway hit her head on the wall.”

Mario — real name Mario Dewar Bennett — was eventually arrested this morning for 2nd degree assault. He released on $50,000 bond.

Carmelo Anthony vs Kat Stacks

Posted by yoMcLovin on August 31, 2010

The Carmelo Anthony vs Kat Stacks saga might have just taken an even more serious turn, with Kat claiming she has filed a police report against the NBA star.

Last week Denver Nuggets basketball player, Carmelo Anthony and his wife Lala Vasquez got into an argument on Twitter, that was sparked by Stacks sending a flirtatious tweet to Anthony.

Instead of ignoring it, Carmelo and Lala took the bait. The argument that ensued ended with Carmelo sending out a tweet offering a $5,000 bounty to anyone that would slap Stacks.

Not soon after, Carmelo’s Twitter account was deleted with him later claiming it was hacked.

The account has since been restored, but troubles caused by the threat may be just beginning.

Last night (August 30), Stacks sent out a tweet claiming she had filed a police report about the incident.

So the FBI getting involved since its an internet case

Just filed a police report on @CarmeloAnthony

Don’t you ever put my life and my son life in danger!

Whether or not she actually did remains to be seen, but the fact is that threat could wind up costing ‘Melo way more than 5G’s.

Hopefully, for his sake Kat was just bullsh*tting and this whole thing will just blow over.
