Cops force man to rap for his freedom: suit

It was rhyme and punishment.

A Brooklyn man says he was forced to rap for a crew of NYPD cops to get out of handcuffs — and warned that if his rhymes weren’t “hot’’ enough, they wouldn’t free him.

Quinshon Shingles’s coerced ditty about booze, “bitches” and weed was good enough to get him released — and enough to prompt a scathing Brooklyn Federal Court lawsuit.
“I felt like they were humiliating me,” said Shingles, whose rap name is “Sauce Da Boss,” to The Post on Tuesday.
“They were all Caucasian officers, and I’m a black man, and they had me performing for my freedom. I was really upset.”

Shingles, 28, said he, his cousin and another male pal were at the cousin’s East New York home in December 2011 when the plainclothes officers arrived demanding to perform a search, the suit states.
The cousin, Tyriek Fortune, was suspected of a criminal offense, the suit says, although it’s unclear exactly what the alleged crime was.

Please Tell Me More About How It Was Obama Who Failed To Close Gitmo

Senator Pat Roberts proves what I've said all along: Congress failed, not Obama.



For six years I've listened to people on all sides of the debate complain because 'Obama failed to shut down Guantanamo" and for six years I've said it was Congress, not Obama. Well, here you go, straight from the almost-certainly-doomed-to-be-former-Senator from Kansas:

The Hill:

A day after Tea Party hero Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) campaigned with him in Wichita, (Sen. Pat Roberts) threatened to wage a marathon talk session similar to the one Cruz held last year to protest the implementation of ObamaCare.

“I stopped him once from trying to send a Gitmo terrorist to Leavenworth. I shall do it again, I shall do it again and if he tries it again I will shut down the Senate,” Roberts said, referring to the military prison located sixty miles east of his campaign headquarters in Topeka where he spoke to campaign volunteers.

Roberts made a similar threat back in 2009, when Obama originally signaled he wanted to relocate detainees to the United States. At the time, the disciplinary barracks at Fort Leavenworth, as well as a maximum-security prison in Obama’s home state of Illinois were being considered to house the prisoners.

Roberts told reporters that he would hold the Senate floor for hours on end if necessary to stop Obama.
