Boxing star Adrien Broner has a busy Monday — he’s got dates in TWO courtrooms in TWO states to face TWO separate allegations of sexual misconduct, TMZ Sports has learned. … and it’s all going down just TWO weeks before his mega-fight with Manny…
The hits keep coming.
In this episode of ‘Technique Critique’, crime scene analyst and investigator Matthew Steiner examines forensics investigations in crime scenes from movies and television to see how accurate they are. Crime scenes are from The Wire, NCIS, Zodiac, The Flash, The Boondock Saints, Heat, Seven, The Other Guys, How to Get Away with Murder, CSI: Miami, The Dark Knight, Dexter, Insomnia, True Detective, Bone Collector, Criminal Minds, Family Guy, Iron Man 3, Minority Report and more.
Crime is the base problem for a number of poor urban areas. Wherever you have high crime, you have trouble attracting employers. And without employment options, you end up with poverty, a low tax base to support schools, hopelessness, drug dealing, and the rest. So I thought I would share some ideas for reducing urban crime. The first idea comes from Black Lives Matters out of New York. I can’t judge this sort of idea from my suburban home in California, but I share it with you because it belongs in the conversation. There is a small experiment going on in part of Harlem that has drastically reduced violent gun crime. Police say the big difference is the number of illegal guns they took out of the neighborhoods in question, but they also credit a group called Street Corner Resources with “. . . a mix of adult education courses, connections to legal and housing help and free job placement programs that would result in positions that could pay $ 40 to $ 50 a day more than selling drugs.”
I think it’s always fair to be skeptical of success claims. But I like any plan that can be tested small and evaluated. This example fits that model perfectly. Ideally, we should have a dozen different programs running in different neighborhoods around the country to see which ones work best.
I’d also like to see a system in which senior citizens within a dangerous neighborhood can watch security camera videos of all public spaces in their general area and report suspicious activity to police. Perhaps they can be paid for this service. You’d need a system that piped the videos directly to residential TV sets or mobile devices and randomized the camera views so the criminals never know which residents are watching which blocks. That keeps the watchers safe.
I would also expect more police and security drones coming into use to get closer looks at crime in progress, and to follow perps back to their hiding places. Imagine a senior citizen viewing a crime on a security cam and alerting police who send up the closest drone from a secure rooftop nearby to get a better look. That should drive most crime indoors, at the very least.
I’m sure there are lots of other ideas for reducing crime. I’d like to see the government do a better job of shining a light on various local crime-fighting experiments so everyone knows the options and we can pick the winners as they are identified. Wouldn’t you like to see regular reports on the news about crime-fighting experiments that are working well?

Variety is reporting that the Outkast member will portray architect Michael Lacroix opposite Regina King. The two “prominent members of their community” face the uphill battle of defending their son who is accused of the show’s central crime. It appears the season has been made to reflect many of the nation’s current ills.
The upcoming American Crime Season 2 also reunites Andre Benjamin with his Jimi Hendrix biopic director John Ridley.
““Working with Andre changed my life, personally and professionally on All Is by My Side,” Ridley told Variety. “To have him joining me for season two is pretty phenomenal. Personally, I couldn’t be more excited than to work again with Andre. He is an amazing individual, a true artist, and All Is by My Side is one of the reasons I was given the reins on American Crime,” Ridley tells Variety.
“Folks at ABC were absolutely moved by Andre’s performance in the film, and by the overall
language of cinema we used in telling the story. It’s fair to say ‘American Crime’ might not exist were it not for our previous collaboration.”
The first season of American Crime earned an unprecedented ten Emmy nominations. Three Stacks is on a winning team.

Priming is an essential step in any makeup routine. Not only is it great for your skin, but it is necessary in ensuring your makeup stays flawless from dawn till dusk. Primer prepares skin for makeup application by creating a smooth, perfect surface for product to grab onto for longer-lasting, natural looking wear. This barrier between your skin and your makeup protects you from clogged pores, helps minimize fine lines and acne scaring, and can even temporarily eliminate the appearance of dark spots.
There are a large abundance of products available to the average consumer which makes trying to pin point which primer to use pretty overwhelming. I’ve listed below each of the primers I offer from my own line, along with their benefits and application tips to make sure you know exactly what primer you should be using. Because no matter what, not to prime IS a crime!
1) Mattifying Mineral Primer
Double-beauty duty! For those of you that are partial to mineral powders, this primer is for you. The powder preps and perfects skin before AND after foundation application! Use it first as a skin-prepping primer to blur imperfections and get your base ready for your makeup. Use it again after you apply your foundation as you would a translucent powder to increase the longevity of your makeup even more.
2) Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Skin Primer
My hero product! This primer is unlike other silicon based primers. It feels more like a moisturizer upon application (thanks to skin soothers like Vitamin E, Chamomile and Yarrow Extracts), keeping skin hydrated to allow your foundation a smoother landing.
3) Auto Pilot Pore Minimizer & Mattifier
Minimize your pores! This primer contains silicone derivatives to reduce and refine pores. It can be used as a spot treatment or all over, leaving skin smooth as velvet. I recommend using it throughout the day to reduce shine!
4) Auto Pilot Concealer Primer
Even concealer deserves its own primer. Eyes are the first area of the face to show stress, fatigue, and neglect. This primer was designed to not only keep concealer looking fresher and lasting longer, but it was formulated with light-reflective agents to take the focus off fine lines and wrinkles.
5) Auto Pilot Radiance-Boosting Primer
Skin on the dry side? Need that extra boost of radiance? Use this glow-giving primer! It can be applied before or after your base for radiance that lifts and flatters.

Since I write television, allow me to begin by stating the obvious: America has become more polarized than at any time since the 1960s. People on opposite sides of the partisan divide have not only ceased listening to each other, they are also looking to buy homes and rent apartments in politically homogenous neighborhoods (and cities!); so that the newspaper resting at the bottom of their cages won’t ruffle their ideological feathers; so they can tell birds singing different songs to flock off.
In another chapter from the hard to believe, crossing party lines has become a criminal offense, so that it’s impossible to get anything done without offering insult to one side or the other. And every action by moderately opposing forces is greeted with hysteria. Democrats adopt a Republican health care proposal from the 1990s, which was actually implemented by a Republican governor (and eventual Republican presidential nominee), and the rage on the right cannot be contained. Democrats furiously condemn a policy of fighting a war in Iraq and keeping prisoners in Guantanamo and the ethics of drone strikes and then, when they gain power…oh, the list is too long.
For better or worse, the justice system has become the last refuge for those of us looking for common ties with our fellow Americans. The need to arrest criminals and put them on trial transcends our petty differences, and allows varied communities to unite in common cause. Murder is terribly hard to politicize. As one of Henry the II’s sons says in The Lion in Winter, “I’ve never heard a corpse ask how it got so cold.”
And homicide investigations are largely successful. In most big cities, perhaps especially in Los Angeles and New York, every effort is made to comply with the law while hunting down those who have not. The LAPD polls regularly as the most respected municipal institution in Los Angeles. Our law enforcement agencies exist as working proof that government can move competently – even with bravery and selflessness – to do the right thing.
The unconscious fantasy element of procedural drama has evolved, from marveling at the intelligence of a particular detective, into a wistful desire that our entire body politic could put aside our mostly imaginary arguments long enough to focus on the crisis at hand: to drop our opinions in favor of the pattern of facts.
We love a good whodunit; bringing a murderer to heel satisfies our heroic impulses, and unites the audience with shared, public approval. If only we could figure out how to respect each other as well as we do the abstract principles of the justice system! That, ladies and gentlemen, is a mystery we ought to solve together.
