Africa, cnn.com, and Memes: White South African Woman Becomes First To Be Jailed For Hate Speech After Video Of Her Racist Rant Goes Viral; Sentenced To Three Years @balleralert White South African Woman Becomes First To Be Jailed For Hate Speech After Video Of Her Racist Rant Goes Viral; Sentenced To Three Years – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While racist, hate speech should never be tolerated, it is strictly prohibited in South Africa, as it is specifically excluded from the protection of free speech in the Constitution. In fact, according to the NY Times, back in 2016, the country released a draft law that would criminalize racism, meaning hate speech cases would go to criminal courts instead of civil and would be punishable by up to 10 years in prison. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since then, the nation has moved to implement the new rules and subsequently make an example of a white South African woman. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to CNN, Vicki Momberg was found guilty in November for crimen injuria, better known as the willful injuring of someone’s dignity in her racist verbal attack on a black police officer. The incident was caught on camera and quickly went viral. Since then, Momberg has been prosecuted and sentenced to three years in prison with one year suspended sentence, as she becomes the first South African to be jailed for the offense. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “We’ve had crimen injuria (cases before), but they have always been coupled by other charges. This is the first for a prison sentence for crimen injuria on its own,” a spokesperson said of the sentencing. “We are pleased with the sentence. This sends a clear message to those who undermine other people’s rights.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the incident that led to the sentencing, Momberg was caught on video hurling racial slurs at South African police officers after they stopped to help her after her car was broken into in Johannesburg. According to reports, she repeatedly used words that were used to insult black people during the apartheid. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, Momberg will have two years behind bars to think about her actions.

Being Alone, Memes, and News: EMERGENCY MEDS U.S. NEWS BOMB SUSPECT DEAD Mar 21 The Austin bombings suspect dies by detonating a bomb inside his car while SWAT officers closed in on the vehicle. The suspect from the Austin bombings died early this morning by blowing himself up in his car while officers closed in on him. The suspect’s vehicle was traced to a hotel in Round Rock, TX- just north of Austin. A SWAT team surrounded the hotel while waiting for backup, however during that time the suspect drove away.

Police detail the suspect detonated a bomb from the inside, causing an officer to be thrown back. ___ Austin police chief Brian Manley revealed the suspect to be a 24-year-old male, Mark Anthony Conditt. Manley said that several leads brought them to the suspect, including a surveillance video. However he reminded, “we still need to remain vigilant. We do not know where he has been in the past 24 hours. We do not understand what motivated him to do what he did.” Law enforcements are still unsure if the suspect acted alone, or if he had accomplices. They are also unsure if he left other explosives that have not yet detonated. ___ The suspect is said to be responsible for at least six bombs that killed two people and wounded five. Four bombs detonated in various locations in Austin, another in a FedEx distribution center in Schertz, TX, a 6th found, unexploded, in a FedEx near Austin’s airport. ___ Photo: Eric Gay-Associated Press

Beyonce, Crime, and Definitely: Lil Xan Confronted By Angry Tupac Fans After Calling The Legend's Music Boring; Cops Escort Him To Safety @balleralert 32 Lil Xan Confronted By Angry Tupac Fans After Calling The Legend’s Music Boring; Cops Escort Him To Safety - blogged by @msJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In music, an unpopular opinion is neither respected or accepted, especially when it comes to musical legends such as Biggie, Tupac, and Beyoncé. (With the latter being absolutely off-limits) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But, California-bred rapper LilXan learned that the hard way when he rated Tupac a “2” out of 10 and called his music boring. His comments initiated a call for his banishment from hip-hop, which in turn prompted the rapper to clarify his statements. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “For real, I gotta tell you something. The media twisted my words,” he said. “I think Tupac is a legend. Tupac is definitely a legend. Tupac a legend, they just twist your words. They want you to hate me. Don’t hate me.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, saying it three times did not convince angry Tupac fans, who tried to press him in his hometown. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to a police report obtained by TMZ, a group of high schoolers confronted the rapper at a Del Taco in Redlands, California over his comments about the late rapper. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although the incident didn’t escalate to violence, there was a bit of hostility that prompted the rapper to run for cover until an officer picked him up and took him to his car. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, TMZ says the group was gathered for a possible girl fight, so the rapper may have got caught in the middle of the chaos. But, no crime was committed against him, the publication reports. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the meantime, can we discuss the resemblance between Lil Xan and Carl Gallagher from ‘Shameless’?
