He was fined $10,000 and will have two years supervised release after he serves his prison sentence.

Patrick Cannon apologized for his actions before he was sentenced. Another stunning fall from grace for a promising black politician.

Judge Whitney rejected the 37-month-sentence recommended by federal prosecutors because of Cannon’s cooperation and accepting the guilty plea quickly for taking more than $50,000 in bribes. The judge said Cannon’s wife, Trenna, his children and Charlotte bore the brunt of his misconduct.

South Carolina Lance Cpl. Sean Groubert was arrested after a dash-cam video shows him shooting unarmed Levar Edward Jones over a seatbelt violation. Groubert is facing assault and battery charges, which could carry a 20-year prison sentence.

The shooting happened in the parking lot of a Circle K on Broad River Road Sept. 4 after Lance Cpl. Sean Groubert pulled Levar Edward Jones over for a seatbelt violation.

In the video released Wednesday night, Groubert asks for Jones’ license. Jones then checks his back pocket before going back to his vehicle.

Groubert then fires several shots at Jones before Jones falls to the ground.

While Jones is on the ground with a gunshot wound to the hip, he asks Groubert “What did I do, sir?”

Groubert then asks Jones if he was hit.

“I don’t know what happened,” Jones says in the video. “I just grabbed my license.”

Groubert explains to Jones the reason he shot at him was because Jones dove head first in the vehicle. Source: WIS-TV

If there was no dash-cam video, Trooper Groubert would have gotten away with committing a crime. Another innocent and unarmed black man would have been a statistic.
This comes as a special grand jury declines to indict officers in the shooting death of a black man, John Crawford III, at a Dayton-area Wal-Mart store in Ohio after he brandished an air rifle.

ARREST WARRANT ISSUED FOR JESSE MATTHEW ON RECKLESS DRIVING CHARGE.

Jesse Matthew, “LJ,” has been identified as a person of interest in the disappearance of UVA student Hannah Graham. The Daily Mail reports Matthew admits he bought her drinks but denies driving off with her in his car.

Jesse ‘LJ’ Matthew has confirmed he met the 18-year-old in Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall on the night she went missing and bought her drinks at a local bar. But Matthew, a nursing assistant at UVA Hospital, told his mother that Hannah did not get into his car and that the pair ‘went their separate ways.’

Matthew’s grandmother, Christine Carr, told MailOnline on Saturday: ‘I have been talking with his mother.‘He said he went his way and she went hers. He told his mother he bought her some drinks. He said she did not get into his car.‘The girl went her way and he went his.’ Source: Daily Mail

I would urge caution in accusing Jesse Matthew of committing a crime in Hannah Graham’s disappearance without proof. Richard Jewell was hounded as a person of interest in the Centennial Park bombing during the Olympics in Atlanta and it turned out he was innocent.
