However, the case was dropped after the girlfriend refused to press charges. As a result, Vasquez went on with his life with a career. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He eventually signed with Lancaster Barnstormers of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball, since the Astros’ minor league affiliate dropped him in the wake of the incident. He was also ordered to complete anger management as a form of probation. However, once the terms were complete, the case was formally dismissed on March 6. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now though, in the wake of the resurfacing of the surveillance footage from the incident, Vasquez has lost his job and has been reduced to a woman beater. (Well, at least that’s what his Wikipedia page says.) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “There is no choice but to sever the relationship,” the team’s manager said in a statement. “Neither I nor the Barnstormers’ organization as a whole, can condone or associate with that behavior.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the video obtained by KRIS-TV, Vasquez is seen walking into the stairwell at Whataburger Field in Corpus Christi with his girlfriend on Aug. 2. When the door closes behind him, he immediately slaps his girlfriend across the face. He then grabs her hair and drags her down the stairs before hitting her again. He then leaves and returns to hit her once more, making her fall to the ground.

The mother originally refused to open the door, but police got a key from the landlord and walked in. They came in to find Gaines on the floor holding a shot gun along with her then 5-year-old son, Kodi. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The incident became a six-hour standoff between Gaines and police. Gaines who aimed her gun at officer Royce Ruby gave him the right to justly shooting the young mother. Ruby ended up killing Gaines and injuring her son. This Friday, an all female jury of six made a ruling after just three hours. They decided Kodi would be awarded $32.8 million, Gaines’ daughter, Karsyn Courtney, would be awarded $4.5 million, and her father and mother will each receive $300,000. The family was then awarded an additional $300,000. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After the three-week trial, the jury had came down to these deliberations: the first shot the officer had fired was not reasonable; they then distributed damages on the grounds that Baltimore County had violated the Gaines’ civil rights and had committed battery on the mother and son. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “This win is for all of my sisters in the movement who have lost their children to police violence,” Gaines’ mother, Rhanda Dormeus.

Emanuel Zayas was diagnosed with polyostotic fibrous dysplasia, which reportedly replaces bones with fibrous tissue. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At age 11, what physicians believed to be a pimple, turned out to be an ossifying fibroma- which has since grown into a 10-pound tumor. According to reports, the tumor began to affect Zayas’ breathing, as well as the bone structure of his face. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although Cuban doctors refused to perform the risky surgery, a specialist at UHealth-University of Miami Health System offered his assistance. In turn, the family flew out to Miami, grateful to God that the specialist agreed to work on their son’s potentially fatal tumor. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, since then, the family has confirmed that Zayas has unfortunately passed in the wake of the 12-hour procedure. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I am saddened by the fact that we are losing him and that the physiological stress of the surgery was apparently too much for his compromised anatomy," the chief of oral and maxillofacial surgery for the University of Miami Health System said in a statement to the Herald. "Our hopes of saving his life, and with that allowing him a better quality of life, were not realized." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Our condolences and prayers for Emanuel's family and the loss of a very brave young man," Marx said, according to NBC 6.

14-Year-Old Boy Who Traveled To Miami From Cuba To Remove 10-Pound Tumor From His Face, Has Died - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last month, a 14-year-old and his family traveled to Miami from Cuba to remove a 10-pound tumor from his face. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Back in September, a Miami specialist offered to assist in the removal of the large tumor after learning of the young boy’s story. Emanuel Zayas was diagnosed with polyostotic fibrous dysplasia, which reportedly replaces bones with fibrous tissue. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At age 11, what physicians believed to be a pimple, turned out to be an ossifying fibroma- which has since grown into a 10-pound tumor. According to reports, the tumor began to affect Zayas’ breathing, as well as the bone structure of his face. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although Cuban doctors refused to perform the risky surgery, a specialist at UHealth-University of Miami Health System offered his assistance. In turn, the family flew out to Miami, grateful to God that the specialist agreed to work on their son’s potentially fatal tumor. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, since then, the family has confirmed that Zayas has unfortunately passed in the wake of the 12-hour procedure. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I am saddened by the fact that we are losing him and that the physiological stress of the surgery was apparently too much for his compromised anatomy," the chief of oral and maxillofacial surgery for the University of Miami Health System said in a statement to the Herald. "Our hopes of saving his life, and with that allowing him a better quality of life, were not realized." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Our condolences and prayers for Emanuel's family and the loss of a very brave young man," Marx said, according to NBC 6.

Children, Detroit, and Donald Trump: Father Of Two Deported To Mexico After 30 Years In The States @balleralert Father Of Two Deported To Mexico After 30 Years In The States – blogged by @MsJennyb (pic via NIRAJ WARIKOO) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Monday, 39-year-old Jorge Garcia kissed his wife and kids goodbye, just before being deported from metro Detroit to Mexico. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Detroit Free Press, 30 years after traveling to the United States with an undocumented family member at the age of 10, Garcia was sent back to his home country, leaving his wife and two children, who are all citizens of the U.S. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Garcia had been facing deportation since 2009, facing an order of removal from immigration courts. However, Obama’s administration allowed stays of removal, which kept Garcia in the states. But, with Donald Trump’s racist take on immigration, which has fueled his intense crackdown on illegal immigrants, Garcia’s time in the states was cut short. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Despite his good standing with the law, he has been ordered to Mexico. ICE agents escorted the 39-year-old through the airport and allowed him to say goodbye to his wife and children. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to the publication, prior to his deportation, he asked the agents if he could stay until the new DACA bill passed, as it may expand the age range for qualification (Garcia is too old to qualify), but the organization refused. He was ordered to leave by Jan. 15, Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Community, Love, and Memes: Bakers Lose Appeal; Ordered To Pay 6- Figures For Refusing To Make Wedding Cake For Same-Sex Couple @balleralert SWeet Bakers Lose Appeal; Ordered To Pay 6-Figures For Refusing To Make Wedding Cake For Same-Sex Couple –blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Thursday, a judge ruled against two Christian bakers who refused service for a same-sex couple. Now, according to NBC News, the owners of the now-closed Sweet Cakes by Melissa bakery will have to fork over a $135,000 fine for their discrimination. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The incident occurred back in 2013 when Aaron and Melissa Klein, the owners of the Oregon bakery, refused to make a wedding cake for Rachel and Laurel Bowman-Cryer. At the time, the Kleins said their religious beliefs wouldn’t allow them to provide a service for the same-sex couple. However, according to NBC News, the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries said that their refusal violated a 2007 state law that protects the rights of the LGBTQ community. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Years later, the couple filed a suit against the bakers for their refusal of service, demanding money for their emotional distress. At the time, a judge ruled in favor of the couple, ordering the bakers to cough up the damages. However, the Kleins appealed in March of this year. But, on Thursday, nearly five years after the start of the case, the Oregon Court of Appeals denied the bakers’ claim and upheld the 6-figure fine against them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It does not matter how you were born or who you love,” the couple said in a statement after the ruling. “All of us are equal under the law and should be treated equally. Oregon will not allow ‘a Straight Couples Only’ sign to be hung in bakeries or other stores."

Just five years after the fatal shooting of a young Trayvon Martin, his killer has threatened violence against JayZ over a documentary about the life and untimely death of Martin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to @the.root , Jay Z announced that he was working behind the scenes of a 6-part documentary about Martin’s life. Based on a book by attorney Lisa Bloom, the documentary, which is titled, “Rest in Power: The TrayvonMartin Story,” is being produced by the Harvey Weinstein-less Weinstein Company, alongside Michael Gasparro, who will create and executive-produce the project. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, Zimmerman has pushed back on the film, as he told The Blast that Gasparro and his production team have been harassing his parents and family members in Florida for an interview and footage. As a result, he told the publication that he wants to “beat Jay Z” and feed him to “an alligator,” just before referring to the murder of Martin, saying, “I know how to handle people who f*ck with me, I have since February 2012.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to The Blast, Zimmerman is also upset about a payment his ex-wife received for her participation in the documentary. However, he says his family has yet to receive a payment, although he refused to elaborate on their willingness to appear on film. In any case, the man is upset. However, the jury is still out on whether or not anyone cares.
