Police have released surveillance video images of a white pick up truck seen leaving the scene of a fatal shooting early Saturday morning.

19-year-old Adair Freeman was shot to death outside his father's recording studio on Jan. 24 at 1:50 a.m. as he returned to the studio from a Shell gas station at 14th and Spring streets.

Surveillance video shows a white late model Chevrolet pickup truck with a black bed liner pull past the pumps at the Shell station and park in the shadows near a chain link fence separating the property from the adjoining Hot Beats studio where Freeman worked with his father, Russell Freeman. (Watch video)

Police believe two men inside the pickup truck targeted Freeman while he was inside the convenience store and waited for him to walk by.

What got their attention was the fake diamond chain dangling around Freeman's neck. Surveillance video from inside the convenience store shows Freeman totally iced out with fake bling on his neck, wrists and fingers.

This type of jewelry called "Hip Hop ice" was popularized by rappers in music videos and is favored by so-called "ballers" in the Hip-Hop community who use the flashy baubles to entice thirsty females.

The trouble is the jewelry also entices thieves who are too dumb to know the difference between authentic diamond jewelry and the fake stuff these kids wear.

Police say the truck's driver exited the vehicle and robbed Freeman of his chain, shooting him twice in the chest. The driver then got back into the truck on the passenger side. Someone else drove the truck away from the crime scene.

The iced out chain the thieves stole was probably worth $50 tops. The teenager died with $90 still in his jeans pocket.

Comments Off on Video: Ron Paul Speaks On Obama’s Inaugural Speech

Dr. Ron Paul discusses Barack Obama's forgettable Inaugural speech in this video sent to us by MemphisMix.com.

America is drowning in debt, yet in Obama's first 3 days as president, he signed an executive order lifting Bush's ban on millions in federal funds to pay for abortions abroad.

In an attempt to pacify conservatives, Obama also signed an EO freezing the salaries of his aides who make over $100,000 a year. A pointless action since very few workers get raises in their first few months on the job anyway.

Obama campaigned on a promise to end the Iraq war, yet last week he ordered drones to fire missiles on villages in Pakistan killing 15 innocent people, including 3 children. (LINK)

Obama and Biden promised change from Bush and Cheney, but all we're getting is more of the same.

Today is the day you can download Vistoso Bosses' hit "Delirious" on iTunes! Click here to download the single onto your iPod.

The blogs are raving about VB!:

You can pretty much gather that if an artist's press materials cite "'80s freestyle, Miami bass, R&B and British indie pop” in as their influences, I'm going to give whatever they have to offer a listen, since, well, those are pretty much my influences, too (although maybe swap in Greg Dulli for Miami bass—they're kind of the same, right?). Such is the case with the Vistoso Bosses, an Atlanta teen duo (Taylor Parker is 17; Kelci Ferguson, 16) that's being shepherded by the same guy who brought Soulja Boy into the Internet's consciousness. (Maybe this is penance?) The Bosses' debut single is the absolutely irresistible "Delirious," which reminds me of a schoolgirl-crush rewrite of Kandi's featherweight kiss-off "Don't Think I'm Not," complete with nervously plucked guitar and all.

Rapper Rodney Hill Jr., aka Rocko, pleaded "no contest" today to assaulting an aggressive female who tried to force her way into his VIP booth at a local nightclub in 2007. (LINK)

The woman had accused Rocko of slugging her in the face and pulling her hair, but Rocko has always denied ever hitting the woman. She sustained a black eye in the assault.

"No contest" means the defendant neither admits nor denies the charges. It has the same immediate effect as a guilty plea.

Rocko will spend 48 hours behind bars and upon his release, must begin serving 12 months probation and complete community service.

Comments Off on FanMAIL: Another reader Finally gets it

The Kool aid drinkers will make excuses for Barack Obama all day. The reality is, Obama is no different from any other politician. He has an agenda just like George Bush did. That's why he signed an executive order so quickly to lift the ban on federal funds to pay for abortions overseas.

Meanwhile, where's the executive order to help people who are losing their homes? Make sense to you?

Loyal reader Tara summed it up best when she wrote, "why was this like the second or third major thing he's done since taking office? Was it THAT important to do immediately? Was the bill going to expire or something and he had to extend it right away??"

Here is the rest of Tara's email:

Hey Sandra, I hope your day is grand. I wish I could be posting this directly to your website buuuuuut, I'm not on your approved list.. It's okay. I could not agree with you more on this sending money to other countries for the purpose of educating/performing abortions. I am a Christian and do believe every life is worth a chance in this world, BUT I also believe we as humans were given the freedom of choice by God so you won't find me picketing with the radical pro-lifers (and prior to getting saved I went down that road myself).

Now, having said that, I most definitely think it is a travesty that we as Americans have no say so in our tax dollars being used for this purpose especially with the economy in the state that it's in. And why was this like the second or third major thing he's done since taking office? Was it THAT important to do immediately? Was the bill going to expire or something and he had to extend it right away??Sending money we clearly don't have to other countries for this purpose? Why am I paying for any ELECTIVE procedure in another country let alone this country when two people decide to lay down and not like the outcome. NO ONE should have to pay for someone else's decision to end a pregnancy.

When people live outside their means and the bill collectors are calling who has to take responsibility for that?? I don't see the government stepping in to give a check regarding financial responsibility?? I'm not bashing or judging. Please keep in the context of this sending/giving hard earned tax dollars for this purpose. Thanks for reading my emails and don't take to heart the comments left on YOUR blog. Again YOUR blog. You can post what you want, when you want, on whom ever you want and how often you want! Sandra Rose is yours and I can as well as anyone else stop coming if we don't like the content! Right???

To those of you who keep emailing me asking about registration: I won't be opening registration back up any time soon. So thanks for visiting!

Lil Kim's attorney is going after an impersonator on Facebook who claims to be Lil Kim.

Apparently the impersonator posted something on Facebook. I haven't seen whatever it is since I don't go on there. But here's the statement from her attorney:

"The statement posted up on Facebook was done by someone falsely portraying themselves to be Lil Kim and is completely untrue. They have been contacted to remove immediately or legal action will be taken," says attorney for Lil Kim, Bernard H. Jackson III.

Garage area of a South Loop townhouse where Nova Henry, 24, and her daughter were found murdered

Two weeks ago, NBA star Eddy Curry was in the news for allegedly sexually harassing his limo driver. This weekend there was even more bad news for Curry.

Chicago police found his ex-girlfriend, Nova Henry, 24, and their 9-month-old daughter, Ava, shot to death in the garage of her South Loop town home.

Police say Curry's 3-year-old son watched as his mother and sister were murdered. The boy was covered in blood from apparently trying to wake his mother up.

Police had a man in custody Sunday who they interviewed in connection with the murders. The man had a previous romantic relationship with Henry.

Curry is not a suspect in the case. Family members of the murdered woman suspect her ex-boyfriend who they accused of stalking her.

Curry, 26, a center with the New York Knicks, was in Philadelphia with his team Saturday night. (LINK)

Late Friday afternoon POTUS Barack Obama signed an executive order sending hundreds of millions in federal dollars overseas to pay for foreign abortions (LINK).

In case you don't know, an executive order signed by a president does not require the approval of Congress which is troubling to some.

Another troubling aspect of this is the way Obama signed the decree. According to a White House spokesman, Obama signed the executive order late Friday afternoon without any media present, and while no one was paying attention.

I am pro-abortion and I'm all for a woman's right to choose. However, in this time of economic turmoil with Americans losing their homes and jobs, is it prudent for Obama to send millions overseas to pay for foreign abortions?

Maybe someone can answer this question for me: how does spending millions on foreign abortions help to stimulate this economy?
