Guns, Kendrick Lamar, and Memes: Kendrick Lamar Said to Be Banning the Use of Cell Phones and Digital Cameras From His Concerts @balleralert DAMN KENDRICK LAMAR RIAA CERTIFIED DOUBLE PLATINUM Kendrick Lamar Said to Be Banning the Use of Cell Phones and Digital Cameras From His Concerts - blogged by: @ashleytearra ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you’re planning on attending a KendrickLamar concert, you might want to read the rules first. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to The Guardian, the Grammy award-winning lyricist will now be prohibiting the use of cell phones at his live performances. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Reportedly, the new policy was established in order to “protect Kendrick’s valuable brand and ensure that the appetite for tickets remains keen.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Additionally, it is also said that professional photography won’t be allowed either. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, this stipulation doesn’t necessarily come as a surprise. Cell phone and digital camera restrictions at concerts aren’t unusual. This actually happens quite often. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Alicia Keys, Guns N’ Roses, and the late Prince are all known for banning mobile devices from their shows. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Of course, though, if you spend your hard-earned money on a ticket, naturally, you’re going to want to capture footage for the sake of keeping good memories. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But, by putting the ban on filming-snapping photos, artists are hoping to keep the audience members more engaged and to provide potential attendees with an even better, enjoyable, and exclusive experience. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Currently, Kendrick is on the European leg of his DAMN tour, which kicked off on February 7th in Dublin.

Arguing, Drugs, and Lawyer: Lawyer Says Body Cam Footage Show:s LAPD Officer Planting Cocaine on Black Suspect @balleralert BREAKING NEWS NE 5159 62 O2 BREAKING NEWS CBS2 EXCLUSIVE Lawyer Says Body Cam Footage Shows LAPD Officer Planting Cocaine on Black Suspect – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Thursday, body cam footage of an April hit-and-run incident in Los Angeles was released, catapulting the department into an internal investigation on the use of the cameras. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the footage obtained by CBS-LA, an LAPD officer is allegedly shown planting drugs inside a black suspect’s wallet. The media outlet retrieved 12 total videos, all worn by the officers that were on the scene when 52-year-old RonaldShields was arrested and charged with felony hit-and-run and cocaine possession. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At the time, officers reported that a small bag of cocaine was found in Shield’s shirt, however, upon the release of the bodycam footage on Thursday, new information has been unveiled to the public. Shields’ lawyer says the video shows an officer picking up the cocaine off the ground and putting it in Shields’ wallet, which was caught on his own bodycam. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, the cameras begin recording 30 seconds before being turned on, but it appears the officer, who has been identified as Officer Gaxiola, had no idea about the device’s design. Which explains why he allegedly turns the camera on after planting the drugs in the suspect’s wallet. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, despite the video, another officer told the judge that he found the cocaine in Shields’ pocket, prompting Shields’ lawyer to argue that the drugs were planted, as allegedly seen in the video, he is reportedly asking for the evidence to be suppressed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In turn, the LAPD released a statement saying, “The LAPD takes all allegations of misconduct seriously and as in all cases, will conduct a thorough investigation to determine whether the alleged actions are supported by reliable evidence.”
