Children, Family, and Friday: Jury Awards Korryn Gaines' Family $38 Million In Civil Case Against Baltimore County @balleralert MOR t ASSO Jury Awards Korryn Gaines' Family $38 Million In Civil Case Against Baltimore County - Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A jury ruled on Friday the family of Korryn Gaines, the 23-year-old Baltimore mother who was fatally shot by a police officer in 2016, will receive $38 million. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Two years ago, Gaines became a victim of police brutality when officers entered her home on the morning of Aug. 1, 2016 attempting to arrest her on disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and multiple traffic violation charges. 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.

Fire, Football, and Head: An Assistant Football Coach Lost His Life Shielding Students Against Florida High School Shooter @balleralert An Assistant Football Coach Lost His Life Shielding Students In Florida High School Shooting - Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ An assistant football coach lost his life protecting students during the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting on Wednesday. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ AaronFeis worked as a coach for the high school’s football team. This Thursday, the team tweeted that he “selflessly shielded students from the shooter when he was shot. He died a hero and he will forever be in our hearts and memories.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Nicolas Cruz is the 19-year old student who carried the act of terror onto his former school. Before the shooting, students thought they were merely performing a fire drill, which is what sent them filing into the hallways. That’s when Cruz, who was wearing a gas mask, toting smoke grenades and several magazines of ammunition for his AR-15 rifle, opened fire killing 17 and injuring more. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Feis at the time was on duty as the school security guard and responded to a call over walkie-talkies that there were loud pops coming from somewhere in the school. A witness said Feis was seen jumping “in front of bullets to save some students' lives.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The brave coach was also an alumnus of the high school. He graduated from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in 1999 and became the junior varsity head coach of the school’s football team in 2002. Feis leaves behind a wife and one daughter.

The gunman wore a gas mask into the school, armed with an AR-15 rifle, smoke grenades, and “countless magazines,” officials report.

By the end of the initial shooting rampage, the suspect had killed 12 people inside the school, before killing an additional three outside, including someone standing on the street corner. Two more victims died from their injuries in local hospitals. ___ Nikolas Cruz was arrested in a neighboring city known as Coral Springs just a few miles from the school.

80s, Bless Up, and Clock: Meet Eddie, the Hospital Therapy Dog who is always carrying around his bookbag of toys and can always be found in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit @DrSmashlove Reddit u/Stuffy Unicorn Part 2 (see previous post for Part 1): He’d leap out of his truck wearing overalls and construction boots and a trucker cap - not Ed Hardy but a real one, an unironic one lol. And he look like Tom Brady in the face but he burly like Tom Hardy. And he got no shirt under the overalls just manly. And my girl like “Aren’t you cold?” And in a syrupy southern drawl he say “mayam - I werked one year as longshoreman in Alasker. One tam - my toes done froze off, lost two. But I survaved. An I don’t git cold no mowar. 🤠” He reach under the steering wheel, pop the hood, walk around, flicks it open, props it up with only his arm, grab wiper fluid out of the bed of his truck which also houses a deer he just shot, opens it with his mouth, pours the fluid, replaces the cap. I’m in awe. My girl even more in awe. He grab a blanket out of his truck and wrap up my girl and he like “just makin sure yer old lady’s warm, sir 😌. Would yall lak to come to my home for some deer steaks before continuing yer journey?” And I’m like “wow what a gracious offer u know what MSNBC and CNN are wrong about y’all, rednecks are amazing people” and just then. Right then. My girl hop out the whip. I’m like “WOMAN! IT’S SNOWING?” And she like “you don’t want steak then suit yourself I’M HUNGRY. We could have stopped at Ponderosa like I asked but you said we almost home WELL SMASH WE AIN’T.” And with that she retreat to the redneck’s truck. “But baby,” I said. “We got a nice home. Like the republican Family in Strangers things 😥.” “That might be true” she say “but money can’t buy happiness.” And just like that they ride off in the sunset. People always say “I was born in the wrong era.” BIH! NOT ME! In the 80s u could lose ya girl over wiper fluid! I’m not handy but I know how a Neapolitan suit should fit in the shoulder and how to tastefully appoint a living room with Eames chairs and Mies van der Rohe bench but still make it vibe with heirloom pieces like a grandfather clock! Bish I’m aesthetic asf! I was raised with sisters! And it’s ladies who, combined with my wondrous tung and pipe game, and my brand of earnest empathy, accept my type of manliness lol! Thank you God!! Bless up! 😂😂😂
