Lawsuit Against Department "TT m llJ ::::c c: > ::::c -< At approximately 11:30 p. m., on November 29 2006, members of the Tampa Police Department arrived at the home of Marlon Scott, son of Tampa City Councilman Thomas Scott. Scott was arrested and charged with three felonies: obstructing or opposing an officer with violence, battery on a law enforcement officer, 2 counts of cruelty to animals, and 2 counts of confinement of ani mals without food and water. He was released from the Hillsborough County Jail after posting a $7,500 bond the following morning. Since the arrests, all of the charges against the young hus band and father of four have been dropped, his dogs have been returned, and his attor ney has notified the City of Tampa of his intent to file a lawsuit. Prominent Tampa Attorney Barry Cohen is representing _.Scott. Attorney Cohen said during an interview, "I have filed a notice of intent to sue. WEBUYI He was charged with criminal offenses with no basis or fact and the judge threw them out. His dogs were returned to him and a veterinarian said there was nothing wrong with the dogs. We are going to expose the cops for lying." Complaint Leading ToArrest An unidentified source told the Sentinel that Animal Control Services had removed the two dogs that Tues.day, alleging Scott was keeping them on chains that were too short and in direct sunlight. Scott had allegedly tried to find out who took the dogs and why they were removed from his home. The Arrest According to Tampa Police at the time of the arrest, Officers Terrance Covais and Lenis Dawson respond ed to Scott's home around 11 p.m., to arrest him on a proba ble cause affidavit.

Roses At The Fair For Sheriff Gee ,, ,. ,, are in order for Hillsborough .: Sheriff David Gee and the Tampa Bay Area Multi-Gang Taskforce for their outstand-ing service in making this year's Florida State Fair safe and enjoyable for parents and their children. Certainly, the daunting task of patrolling and mainfE taining crowd-control as thousands of fairgoers cone verged on the Tampa fairgrounds was a job in itself. Moreover, keeping the peace, in the face of a known threat of gang presence at the fair was just short of 0 miraculous. (J) Reportedly, more than 60 arrests were made during Youth Day at the Fair. Fighting among youths and .,_ gang members was rampant. As a mater of fact, one of our youth sources stated her 14-year-old friend w was detained for unruly behavior. She said, the [i source of the disturbance was gang activity. o Yet, we are told, had law enforcement authorities not acted creatively and comprehensively, things (J) could have been much worse. This year, as in the ffi past, gang colors, signs and other paraphernalia were :::J banned from the fairgrounds. Indeed, gang members ll. were requested to remove any gang-identification or z i= risk being denied entrance to the fair. Most of them w complied. j However,-we continue to be puzzled as to why pa:::J rents would allow. their adolescent children to go to ra _:. the fair without adult chaperones. For, such an atti-w tude on parents part would seem to invite trouble for z w (J) < Cl E 0 ..J u. many reasons. Nevertheless, praise is due to Sheriff Gee's organization for staffing the fair grounds to the extent that fairgoers w _ere greeted rather than confronted by deputies who flashed smiles as readily as they wore their badges. Super Delegates Are Presidential Nominee Trump Card one_ of the 2008 Democratic presidential candidoesn't win the 2,025 delegates needed to .............. the presidential nomination, the fight between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton may very well narrow down to the Democratic national convention's so-called trump card --the super delegates. Thus far, this is the situation. Currently, without Michigan's and Florida's super delegates, 796 unelected delegates possess tlie "power to make up their own minds as to who will wear the Democratic mantle. Because their numbers reflect nearly 20% of the total delegate count, the group called Super < Delegates are no doubt, the most. sought after individuals leading up to th& final candidate deCision. For,, w their votes could equal life or death for either Barack C!J or Hillary. < a. And, even though many party folks are warning Sides To Every Story now, everyone has or heard about jail deputy captured on the jail video appar ently dumping a handicapped prisoner from his wheelchair. The incident happened on January 29th and the man, identified_ as Brian Sterner, has gone public with his story. After much apologizing and public outcry the jail deputy, identified as Charlette Marshall-Jones, has been suspended without pay and charged by the Hillsborough County State Attorney's Office Sterner and his attorney have appeared on the Today Show and the story has weaved it's way throughout the nation. In the meantime, the deputy has already been tried and convicted. But, before we all rush to judgment, we might need to remember that there are two sides to every story and the truth can usually be found somewhere in the mid dle. We can't justify the deputy's actions, nor can any rational human being think this is an isolated incident. Sitting in this seat, I hear more than my share of stories about abuse at the Hillsborough County Jail. Most are of verbal abuse or medical neglect, but ever so often I hear of physical abuse at the hands of jail employees. The employees should treat prisoners in the manner they would like to be treat whenever possible. This is wrong, no matter who is doing it. When a per son is in that facility, they are totally at the hands of the employees : It shouldn't happen and when it does, the per petrator should be dealt with CREWS swiftly. But, there is another side of that coin. Whether you feel you deserve to be there or not, it is your responsibility to con duct yourself in the appropri ate manner --those in wheelchairs included. There is no excuse for abusive behavior. Sterner played a role in landing in jail. It didn't just happen to him because it was "pick on the handicapped day." Since his arrest and the release of the video, he has worked his condition like a job. Yet, I have yet to hear of any serious injury he suffered from the fall. And, that makes you wonder what was said before the dumping took place. This case warrants (no pun intended for either) holding your verdict until all of the facts are in. lwhat Goes Up Doesn't Always Come Dowi1l the table, it's been announced cation costs, and buy food. that the price of a stamp is Every time you turn on the rising.

Since he took on the part of elected officials office in 2000, blue-collar to put things straight. You will hear promises of tax reductions and other incentives, but the bottom line is there will be no dramatic c}lange in the way we live. The prices we are paying today will not drop, and the economy will either bury us, or force us to seek additional employment just to survive. The country is being run by politicians, and we are being ruined by government. Government has put all of us in a position of 4esperation, and things aren't going to change that much. There are solutions to these problems, but it will take a huge effort on the part of vot ers, politicians, and corporate America to reverse this trend. Super delegates must follow the voters' lead and for the candidate who -receives the majority of the popular vote and the most delegates, the Super delegates are nonetheless, free to support any candidate they choose. Indeed, their reasons are patentl) their own. Says Democratic National Committee member and Super delegate Donna 1Jrazile, if Super delegates don't side with the voter-majority, she will quit. Well, sl. 'may have to do just that. Texas and Ohio primaries loom on March 4th. Obama lea, But anything can happen, especially with the addition of a group, which many consider a loose cannon, the so-called Super delegates. Political forecasters predict neither Obama nor Clinton .will have the majority of the delegates to take the Democratic presidential candidacy. This unwelcomed prediction comes with the knowledge that 3,252 delegates must vote, according to primary results. That puts the final choice in the lap of Super delegates. Already certain their numbers have changed from supporting Hillary to supporting Obama. Is it a trend or simply a quirk? Regardless, we agree with Donna Brazile. Super delegates should adhere to the will of the majority of voters. Either that or be dismissed.

COLUMNS The Sole-Man Speaks 1 My Way Or The Highway! j .eah, I know. "Happy Year!" .But told that to my car! So, there I was ... all dressed up for work and no way to get there! Once again, I made a fateful call. And you know who the cab company sent me ... My friend and yours ... my trusty adversary, "Mr. One-Eye!" 'Cab pulled up. I piled in. "Good morning," my cab dri ver growled, scowling at me with his one eye in the rearview mirror. "Good morning," I shot back, trying to sound as professional and as aloof as I could possibly sound. It .didn't work. And I'll tell you why it didn't work. Staring back at me, from its place on the cab driver's dash board was one of the biggest Hillary Clinton bobbleheads I had ever seen. I tried to look away. But she kept smirking at me and nodding her head, as if to say, ''I KNOW you're gonna vote for me!" With those piercing Clinton eyes, she kept bob. bing her hea:d and boring into my skull! I couldn't take it! Sci, to my utter chagrin, I was the first one to speak, in the cab, that morning. "So," I said, "you're voting for Hillary Cli.nton!" "Isn't everybody?" growled Mr. One-Eye, with a sniirk that reminded me of the cartoon character Popeye's nemesis, Bluto. "Well, as a matter of fact," 1 said smugly, "I'm an Obama man, myself!" "Oh, you are?" huffed the cabby. "Yes, I am," I grinned, suddenly spoiling for a fight! "As a matter of fact, I would think that most African Americans would be in support of Obama." "And why is that," snapped Orie-Eye, "because Obama's Black?" Well, yeah, for starters," I quipped. The cab grew silent. Pandora was out of her box! "Y'know, you seem to be an .educated man," said my cab driver. "I am," I smiled. "So, what would make you think that all Black people in America should vote for Barack Obama?" "I didn't say 'ALL' Black people in America. I said 'MOST' Black people in America," I corrected the cabby. Reciting almost word-for-word from a recent Sentinel article, I announced, "There's a fresh and exciting phenomenon -swirling throughout America, these days! It's called the Barack Obama phenomenon!' And I just would think that any African American who is indeed, an African American would be overjoyed and utterly proud to get on board!" And before Mr. One-Eye could utter a refute, I added, "You see Oprah Winfrey is on board!" (What did I say that for?) "WOOHOOH," shrieked the cabby, "PRAISE THE LAWD AND PASS THE COLLARD GREENS!" Maaan, you sound just like them turkeys over in them Communist countries who are always making up other people's minds for them!" "Excuse me," I yelped, "I did not mean to make up anybody's mind for them. I was simply stating my own mind!" The cabby replied, "Well, your mind is narrow minded!" "So be it," I thought to myself, "go on and vote for ol' Hillary, if you want to!" But what I said was, "I'm sorry if I offended you!" My adversary replied, "Heck, you didn't offend me. You offend ed the Constitution of these United States, which says that every American citizen has the right to make up his or her own mind, whether the citizen is white, Black or otherwise!" "I know," I mumbled, grovel ing just a little, which received a wink from old On.e-Eye in the. mirror. Then I asked, "But would you do me one small favor?" And in a compliant voice, my cab driver answered, "Sure!" What can I do for you?" As we pulled up to my place of toil, I leaned forward, opened the dpor to get out and said, "Will you remov-e that damn Hillary Clinton bobble-head from off your dashboard?" With a smile that reminded me of a c.ross between Joe Frazier and the alligator that ate Freddy the pooch, old One-Eye said, "That'll be five dollars apd fifty cents, thank you!" (I said to myself, "Tomorrow, I'm getting another car!") not er V evv By RANDOLPH KINSEY c m (/) c Making Prisons Work "T1 m OJ :::0 c )> JJ -< people for doing a crime? Or are they places where you pun ish people for doing a crime and rehabilitating them at the same time. It must be the first alternative because that is usu ally what they do. It can't be the last one because generally that is not what they do. Since so many people are being packed away in prisons today we may as well make them work. We do this by rehabbing them and making them better people when they come out of prison than they were when they went in. So many of our people are put in jail that have drug problems and even mental problems. They go in with these pro blems and they come out with the same problems. People are sent to jail and ordered to have drug treatment. Most of these people serve their sentence and get out of jail without ever see ing a drug counselor. They get out without getting any thera-py. I suggested several years ago and Senator Les Miller tried to get a bill passed that would set up a prison in each of Florida's seven prison districts that would serve as rehabilitation centers for non-violent, low degree criminals. In this prison, the inmate could get drug and psychiatric treatment and learn a job skill. No violent criminals, mur derers, rapists, big time drug dealers or similar criminals would be admitted to these prisons. Inmates coming out of these prisons should be less likely to return to prison. Lawmakers, social agencies, law enforcement officials, judges and even criminals themselves should rethink their philosophy on the role of prisons and what they should and must do. Those who com mit crimes should still be pun ished. But we must separate the non-violent, nuisance crimi nals from the hard-core dan gerous and repeat offenders. Earned days of credit for good 1\) behaviors should be restored g for first time non-violent low degree crimes. It is vitally important that we rethink our prison policies and make some changes. All that we are doing is ware housing inmates today. We are locking them up and waiting for their time to end. I don't know about prisons all over America, but I do know that prisons in Florida have gotten a bad rap. It is a common belief that our current way of doing business with our criminal system breeds and trains criminals, rather than turning them into better human beings. To revamp our prison system will cost money. Gf course it will. co ."TT But in the long run we will r spend less on inmates because the number of returnees will 6 decrease. Just think about it. Just look at our penal system and how it works. It is easy to see. Our penal system needs an over haul and it needs it now. )> en m z :::t z m r;aJ c: r rm :::t z ., c: aJ r-This Is How We Do It u; m c J':da B. Wells was born to .,li. slaves until her parents ... found freedom after the Civil War. At the tender age of 14, she dropped out of high school and found employment as a teacher in a black school in order to keep the family together after an outbreak of yellow fever took the lives of her parents and youngest sib ling. Ms. Wells had strong political opinions and when she was 24 she wrote, "I will not begin at this late day by doing what my soul _abhors, sugari:qg men, weak deceitful creatures, with flattery to retain them as escorts or to gratify a revenge." In 1889, she became co-owner and editor of Free Speech, an anti-segregationist newspaper based in Memphis. She married Ferdinand L. Barnett, an attorney, after he accepted on her behalf to "file a libel suit against two Black Memphis attorneys." A "precursor of Rosa Parks, a suf fragist, newspaper editor and publisher, investigate journal ist, co-founder of the NAACP, political candidate, mother and wife, Wells became the single most powerful leader in the anti-lynching campaign in America," Wikepedia. "From the first publication of the first African-American newspaper in 1827, the pioneering men and women of The Black Press have given voices to stories and events what would otherwise have gone undocumented." On Tuesday, August 16, 2005, local musings surround ing the urban neighborhood of Seminole Heights in Tampa offered, "Unfortunately, i:he Sentinel Bulletin fails to pro vide opportunities to better get its opinions and perspectives out to the community. They lack an effective web presence" that "only provides coverage of the paper's 6 cover stories, death notices and a church directorY. There is no archive of past stories. Most importantly; the commentaries by Rudolph Har_ris, Iris Holton, -Soleman, Randolph Kinsey, Leon Crews, Sherna Blair Rich and the paper's editorials is nowhere on the web. This commentary evaporates once the paper is read and thrown away." The suggestion of "a better online presence" and "blog of their editorials" is duly noted and appreciated. Moreover, the idea that The Florida Sentinel's commentaries' evaporate is clearly a distortion.

"I truly believe that God has given us a ministry and me a message and a presentation that transcends all ethnic and denominational lines." Lockett called it a privilege to be one of the pioneers of the "spiritual awakening and renaissance" occurring in the New Tampa area and commu nity. Pastor Lockett also says, "He looks forward to fellows hipping, meeting and working with the other pastors, congregations, city offi..: cials and community leaders to continue to address and minister to the needs of his community and the globe". He also finds it fitting that the church's first service in New Tampa would commence at the beginning of Black History Month. Lockett said his research shows that of the estimated 4,000 to 7,000+ African-Americans who live in the New Tampa area for years have had "to venture the high way in search of an African American led church, congre gation and voice." He added: "As destiny would have it, we did at the beginning of Black History month add a new entry or docket into the long and stoic history of the City of Tampa and the County of Hillsborough. With the high price of gas these days, our move to New Tampa couldn't have come at a better time." The pastor said_ the church's goal is to not just be another church on another corner, but rather "to equip and empower a community, a city, a state, a nation and even a world to a holistic life and a lifestyle wor. thy of Christ economically, physically, relationally; gener ationally, mentally, judicially, financially, culturally, globally, Civilly as well as spiritually."

The event was held on February 9th at Mendenhall Elementary School. The youngsters were led to victory under the leadership of their coach, Ted McNair. The young men who took home the trophy were Anthony Pitts, DeShaun Brown, Brandon Marston, Jorge Perez, and Emmanuel Hicks. The students won 15 of the 25 chess matches they compet ed in What makes the victory a special event was that the young men participated in the event with only a four-day noti fication and it was the first time that DeShaun Brown competed. Yet, he beat two other more seasoned players. However, during the tournament, they defeated teams from Berkeley, Tampa Prep, Wilson, Coleman, Fish Hawk, and Williams I. B. Middle School. Each of the young men had never played chess prior to their enrollment at Academy Prep Center of Tampa in the fall.

Pacman Settles Last Criminal Charge, Gets Probation ADAM 'PACMAN' JONES NASHVILLE, Tenn. -NFL player Adam "Pacman" Jones settled his last pending criminal charge Thursday in a plea the prose cutor said makes the corner back a convicted felon. Jones was charged with obstructing a police officer two years ago in Georgia Jones' attorney and agent, Manny Arora, called the plea the equivalent of no con test. Jones was sentenced to three years of probation for the run-in with police on Feb. 6, 2006, outside 'the family home of his pregnant girlfriend in Fayetteville, Ga. He also paid a $500 fine. "This allows us to state offi cially on the record that we don't feel our conduct was criminal," Arora said. Ballard disagreed. He said Jones pleaded guilty under an Alford plea to a felony charge, which cannot be expunged from his record. Under an Alford plea, a defendant acknowledges there is enough evidence for a conviction without admitting guilt. The prosecutor said Jones' attorneys thought it was overkill to call the incident a felony, but he refused to treat Jones as a first offender. Jones had been parked in a Bentley with his girlfriend and a friend outside her home in Fayetteville. Police noticed the car and approached Jones to talk with him. They charged him with one felony count of obstruction of a police officer and two misdemeanors after they accused him of throwing a punch and biting an officer's hand. Ballard said the skin was not broken, but Jones was hindering an officer. LeBron Was The MVP NEW ORLEANS -c Toss some leftover Mardi Gras beads toward the, LeBron James and his crew earned them. Outdunking, outpassing and outperforming their more trumpeted counterparts from the Western Conference, the Eastern Conference All.Stars avenged a year-old beating wi-th a 134-128 win on Sunday night. Ray Allen scored 28 points, making three straight 3-pointers in the final 3:15, and James added 27, including a did-he-really-do-that? dunk in the iast minute. to propel the East and earn MVP honors. Last year, the West humiliated. the. East .in a 153-132 rout in Las Vegas when Kobe Bryant and Co. rewrote the event's record books. However, this time led by Allen's-14 fourth:quarter LEBRON JAMES -points and James, the East salvaged some pride and can return to the season's second half with bragging rights. James, who added nine assists and eight rebounds, was MVP for the second time in three years. He also won the honor in 2006, when the East beat the West in Houston.

SPORTS Broncos Place WRSmith On Reserve/Retired List ROD SMITH ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -The Denver Broncos placed star receiver Rod Smith on the reserve/retired list Friday. However, Smith's agent says the 13-year veteran has not necessarily caught his last NFL pass. The move simply gives the Broncos flexibility under the salary cap entering he 2008 season. Agent Tom Mills said the move was a.roster maneuver and Smith granted the team permission to do it. Smith underwent microfracture hip surgery last February, causing him to miss the 2007 season. He recently had another hip operation. Super Ho\Nard -Wins Dunk Contest Dwight Howard denied Gerald Green from becoming the third repeat Dunk champion (Jason Richardson and -Michael Jordan). NEW ORLEANS Look, up in the sky! It's a bird. It's a plane. It's Dwight Howard -super slam dunk champion. A red cape trailing behind him, Orlando's man of steel made like Superman and won perhaps the best dunk con-test, definitely the most ereative, in NBA history to close a memorable All-Star Saturday. Using a variety of props as well as teammate Jameer Nelson, Howard scored per fect 50s from judges on his first two dunks before the contest was turned over to fan voting for the first time in the final round. Fans, too, picked the 6-foot-11 Howard, who dispelled an old dunking myth: Big men can fly high. "It's really for the big men," Howard said. "Everybody. always says, big men can't jump and big men d<;m't look good dunking. I just tried to add a little bit of my personal ity. With me being so tall, I knew it was going to be tough. I tried to play to the crowd and have fun." Nets-Mavericks Finalize Kid1d Trade The New Jersey Nets have reached agreement on their long-discussed trade of Jason Kidd to the Dallas Mavericks, SI.com has con firmed from league sources. The Mavericks will send New Jersey the semi-retired Keith Van Horn in addition to Trenton Hassell, as well as Devin Harris, DeSagana Diop, Maurice Ager, two first-round picks and cash. In the exchange, Dallas will get Kidd and Malik Allen. A similar trade almost collapsed last week when Devean George exercised his right to veto the trade to Dallas, and Jerry Stackhouse revealed plans JASONKIDD for him to be waived by New Jersey in order to return to the Mavericks. In its latest furm, George -and Stackhouse have been replaced by Hassell and Van Horn. 11" Wheels & nres .................... .-.... $788 l . ... .. 18" Wheals & nra ........ .$888 "!r '..('("-JJ 20" Chrome Wheels .................... $1185 22 Chrome Wheels $1785. 23" Chrome WhHIS & nru .$18.8 24" Chrome Wheels & nres ....... $2785 26" Chrome WhHis & Dl:u.,... .... $3445 . 9370 N.

DRE As Warne r Music Group bids $25 million for troubled label's music, famed producer seeks records on unpaid royalties. With a $25 million offer on the table, Death Row Records' rich catalog could be in the hands of Warner Music Group or another suit or with deeper pockets later this year. In the meantime, Dr. Dre, the producer chiefly responsible for the label's former dominance in the 1990s, wants to get paid. The acclaimed producer and rapper has filed seyerallawsuits over the years seeking unpaid royalties from the label. But given the label's financial woes-Death Row and cofounder Marion "Suge" Knight filed for bankruptcy in April 2006-Dre has been unable to retrieve those pay ments. Now Dre-real name Andre Young-wants to find out the value of the claims he has filed against Death Row. In documents filed with the US Bankruptcy Court in Los Angeles, D r e seeks contracts between himself and Death Row, as well as information about revenue from the sale of his recordings, and agreements to release his recordings as part of compilation albums. The producer was granted an appeal of the bankruptcy court's dismissal of one of his lawsuits last month. He asked the bankruptcy court to make Death Row hand over the documents on Feb. 29 and to order its represen-tatives to be available for deposition on March 7.

But according to TMZ.com, Diddy flied court papers claiming his hand was open and outstretched as Gerald "lunged" into it with his face. Diddy said that Rechni tzer "continued moving toward me and, -without warning, lunged at me. Instinctively, I outstretched one of my hands, which the hand was not closed-fisted, to shield myself ... any contact between Mr. Rechnitzer and myself.was caused by his forward motion against my stationary open hand." Following the incident, Rechnitzer filed a complaint with the Los Angeles Police Department. But after. a brief investigation, no charges were filed. The civil suit against Diddy is scheduled to begin on May 27.

"I say let them both win so that we can have a strong, united people of the United States," Wonder said to applause. "I'm very, very excited about the possibility." Flavor Flav Engaged, Yet Looking For Love VH1 trotted out Fla v o r Flav again for a third season of "Fl avor of Love," but word has it that he's already engaged to a woman outside of the contest who's carrying his baby. "Right after two wrapped Flav got yet another woman pregnant," a spy explained to the New York Post's Page Six. "He decided he was in love with her and they got engaged." "He has a fiancee he's in love with and doesn't want to cheat on, but he'd already cashed his check that VH1 gave him for season three -and the show resurrected his career," the spy continued. "He was dead broke before, so he's doing it for his family." A rep for VH1 said, "Flav is not FLAVOR engaged. It's true FI.AV he's on his eighth child but, as he's said in the past, he'd like 10.

Since running my "3 Days Cash For Your Home" ad there have been reports of other copy-cat real estate investors trying to manipulate people with empty offers of quick cash and fast closings There are few legitimate Tampa companies that can honor such offers. Rehabbers Superstore is the real deal. Before you lose any value in your home ask the investor to provide the following: 1) References : Ask to talk with people who have recently sold them their home. 2) Proof of Funds: Ask them to prove they have the cash to close quickly. Many investors use a "Quick Cash Fast Closing" tactic to get you to sign on the line, then they run around town trying to find someone to buy their contract. 3) Occupational License: Are they legitimate? Ask for a copy of their occupational license. At the Rehabber's Superstore we have the to buy, and we can close all deals in 3 days. More importantly, we can provide you with our credentials.
