A woman in Florida poured barbecue sauce on her husband before chasing after him with a knife in each hand, according to an arrest report.


In a report made public on Wednesday, 30-year-old Viven Palmer faces charges of battery, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and resisting an officer, according to a CBS affiliate, WJAX, in Jacksonville.

Police were reportedly called to the home where they saw a man waving and yelling “Help, police,” from his front door. A woman, who was later identified as Palmer, refused to speak to the police as she put items into a car that was parked outside the home. Two children, ages 4 and 9, were inside the car, according to WJAX.

Palmer’s husband told police that he and his wife were arguing about getting a divorce when “his wife…

When Police Brutality Makes You Scared To Be A Parent

Originally posted on Bossip:


One of my favorite, thought-provoking podcasts is Another Round and one of the episodes a few weeks ago was about disconnecting from all of the depressing and triggering news about Black boys and girls getting killed by police. It’s an important lesson to remember: sometimes we need to remove ourselves from the news. Because every day it seems like we get a new video of a child being killed by a cop – or an announcement of that cop’s exoneration. It’s tiring. It’s stressful. It’s…debilitating.

In order to combat this war on our psyches, we need to get away from social media and the news so we can get some sanity. On Another Round, Tracy and Heben discussed what they do to disconnect – going to the movies or the park or an art show or something. It really made me think about what I do to disconnect, because…

Victim In Fairfax Attack To Testify At Pretrial Hearing

Originally posted on CBS Baltimore:

FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) — A woman who was attacked in a 2005 case that authorities have linked to the death of University of Virginia student Hannah Graham will testify at a pretrial hearing next month.

The woman, who now lives in India, will be traveling back to Virginia before trial to determine whether she can identify 33-year-old Jesse Matthew of Charlottesville as her attacker.

Matthew is charged with sexual assault and attempted capital murder in the Fairfax case.

Defense lawyers, though, question whether she can identify Matthew as her attacker. At a hearing Friday in Fairfax, a judge scheduled a June 4 hearing with the victim to determine whether she can reliably identify Matthew as her assailant.

Prosecutors say they also have DNA evidence linking Matthew to the crime.

Across US, Knife Laws Can Differ By State, City, Even Town

Originally posted on CBS Baltimore:

WASHINGTON (AP) — A few miles off in any direction, and the debate about the knife involved in Freddie Gray’s arrest by Baltimore police may have been completely different.

The state of Maryland has one set of laws governing knives. The city of Baltimore has its own rules. Caught in the middle are people like Gray, who probably have no idea whether carrying a legally purchased knife can lead to criminal charges.

A conflict between laws about knives is not unique to Maryland. Nationwide, knife laws vary in neighboring towns, counties, cities and states. This mishmash makes it difficult for citizens to comply.

“How’s a person supposed to know what the law is, and how are they supposed to know that there’s a difference in the law” between jurisdictions, said Jan Billeb, executive director of the American Knife & Tool Institute, which advocates for greater knife rights in the United…

Suspect In Custody Confessed To Double Murder

Originally posted on CBS Baltimore:

ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — Police have taken a suspect into custody in connection with the double murder of a Rockville couple on Mother’s Day.

Montgomery County police say 31-year-old Scott Tomaszewski was arrested Saturday in Juneau, Alaska, based on a warrant from Maryland. Tomaszewski was on a cruise ship docked in Juneau.

Richard Vilardo and Julianne Vilardo were found dead at their home by a relative on May 10. Montgomery County police say an autopsy confirmed the couple was stabbed to death.

Police Chief Tom Manger says a burglary at the Vilardo’s home 17 years ago led investigators to Tomaszewski and another recent burglary over Easter weekend.

Manger says Tomaszewski confessed to the killings after being questioned by detectives.

Tomaszewski was a neighbor of the Vilardos. Police say he is charged with first-degree murder.

As officers argue that unarmed Natasha McKenna died from “excited delirium” more questions are being asked about what really happened to the Virginia woman who was fatally tased.

McKenna who was 5’3 130 pounds and mentally ill, was handcuffed and shackled when she was shot four times with a stun gun in February.

She also allegedly had a mask over her face and her last words were “You promised you wouldn’t hurt me,” as six officers left her permanently incapacitated for not bending her knees to be strapped into a chair.


The Washington Post reports:

IT’S BEEN more than three months since a mentally ill woman, Natasha McKenna, died after she was shot four times with a Taser stun gun by a guard in the Fairfax County jail.

HYATTSVILLE, Md. (WJZ) —The driver responsible for striking and killing a man on the Baltimore Washington Parkway in February has come forward.

As Tracey Leong reports, the victim’s family is speaking out.

The man surrendered this past week, but the family says the charges he’s facing are far too lenient.

For more than three months, police searched for the driver who hit 38-year-old Rick Warrick and his fiancé Julia Pearce and then kept going.

Warrick was killed in the crash, his wife was also hospitalized.

“We’re human beings, not roadkill, that’s what it makes me feel like roadkill,” said Julia Pearce, fiancée.
