Los Angeles Lakers' LeBron James: 'Not one time have I said let's act violent toward cops'

  Los Angeles Lakers' LeBron James: 'Not one time have I said let's act violent toward cops' LeBron James defended his critiques of law enforcement officers after the LA Lakers' Game 3 loss to the Denver Nuggets.“Not one time have I ever said let’s act violent toward cops,” James said following the Lakers’ 114-106 loss to the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals. “I just said what’s going on in our community is not okay. And we fear for that, and we fear for our lives. It’s something that we go through every single day as a Black man, a Black woman and a Black kid and a Black girl, we fear that moment where we’re pulled over.

EXCLUSIVE: Boardwalk Empire creator Terence Winter has teamed with Asterlight, a San Francisco-based independent production company, to develop a true crime limited series based on the 2003 book Friends of the Family: The Inside Story of the Mafia Cops Case, by former NYPD Detective Tommy Dades, former Brooklyn prosecutor Mike Vecchione and David Fisher.

The book chronicles the true story of Stephen Caracappa and Louis Eppolito, two decorated NYPD police detectives who secretly worked on behalf of the New York mafia, principally the Lucchese and Gambino crime families, while committing serious crimes including racketeering, bribery, kidnapping and murder.

'Fargo' Creator on Why 1950s-Set Season 4 Is a Story About 'Assimilation and Immigration'

  'Fargo' Creator on Why 1950s-Set Season 4 Is a Story About 'Assimilation and Immigration' "Fargo" finally returns Sunday night for its long-awaited fourth installment, more than three years (plus an additional five months) after it last aired on FX. "Fargo" creator Noah Hawley often says that he treats each edition of the anthology series based on the Coen Brothers' 1996 movie as if it's the last. After the third season, it really seemed like it was. "Every time I do one, I think it's the last one," Hawley Hawley told TheWrap, back in January, when the series was supposed to debut in April, before the coronavirus pandemic shut down production and forced a five-month delay.

The story made national headlines when it was exposed that Caracappa and Eppolito received thousands in monthly payoff money in exchange for confidential information on police informants and investigations, in addition to serving as mob assassins. The infamous duo became known as the “Mafia Cops” and were convicted in 2006 of eight contract murders, two of which they carried out themselves. They were sentenced to life in prison in 2009.

“It’s an honor to work with Terry Winter and Tommy Dades and the rest of the team to bring this crime story to life,” said Joe Poletto, founder of Asterlight. “There’s no one better than Terry to tell the story of these two corrupt cops who betrayed their badges, their department and their city — and almost got away with it. It’s an era in New York City history we can’t forget.”

“Caracappa and Eppolito disgraced their badges like no one else in NYPD history,” said Winter. “It’s a privilege to tell the story of Tommy Dades, Mike Vecchione and Joe Ponzi – the good guys who brought them to justice.”

Slow Fashion: These trends were designed for autumn / winter 2020, but made forever. .
It's a buzzword with the promise that everything will be fine with fashion and its sustainability: Slow fashion. Fashion is slowing down. The aim is that less and better quality is produced, that collections no longer follow one another so quickly, that seasons and trends are less important. © PR Slow Fashion: Uniqlo J + Jil Sander Fall / Winter 2020/21 PR This is not to be confused with what suddenly went out of fashion during the pandemic. Slow fashion is not jogging pants.
