Justice Department Will NOT Be Filing Charges Against Officers Who Fatally Shot Alton Sterling

no title

Justice won't be served in the shooting death of Alton Sterling.

It's been reported that the Justice Department will NOT file charges against the officers involved in the death of the Baton Rouge man, whose videotaped shooting by police last summer sparked mass outrage.

According to sources familiar with the investigation, prosecutors have concluded there isn't enough evidence to bring civil rights charges in the 37-year-old's death.

This will mark the first case under Attorney General Jeff Sessions that the department has publicly declined to prosecute officers investigated for a possible wrongdoing in a high-profile case.

Of course, the department looks a lot different than it did at the time of Sterling's death — which prompted days-long protests that lead to over 150 arrests. Then, Barack Obama spoke out on the controversial shooting with a vote of confidence in the Justice Department's investigation.

But things are certainly different now, and Baton Rouge has been hearing rumors that the department would not bring charges since last week. As of Tuesday, Sterling's family had not received word of any decision.

A spokesperson for the family's attorneys said in a statement:

Oh, Just FYI… YOU Are Now Paying Donald Trump's Hefty Legal Bills…

no title

Obviously the juicier Donald Trump hotel story has to do with hookers, urine, and ex-KGB spy tactics — but that one isn't going to personally cost YOU money.

In case you hadn't heard, Trump may have committed a grievous legal error by becoming President.

See, the Trump International Hotel stands in Washington, D.C. like a monument to Drumpf's many conflicts of interest. His company's lease with the federal government (the hotel is inside the Old Post Office building), specifically forbids ownership by a government official, which he clearly now is.

The POTUS has supposedly separated himself from his company BUT conveniently

The U.S. Department of Justice's lawsuit that was looming in the distance has now crashed down on top of Lance Armstrong, and we're hearing that someone who used to love him might have to testify against him!

Lance better hope there's a little love left, which we wouldn't bet on, because Kristin Armstrong is his EX-WIFE!

Did you think Lance Armstrong could come half-way clean and everyone would just forget about what he did??

NOPE! The U.S. Justice Department has officially filed a lawsuit against Lance (it was inevitable) and his company Tailwind Sports for the millions of dollars that the U.S. Postal Service used in sponsoring the cycling team! We'd say they have every right to, too!

So how much are they going for?

The Obama Administration is putting taxpayer's money to good use by asking the Supreme Court to decide whether or not CBS should be fined $550,000 for Janet Jackson's infamous wardrobe malfunction during the Super Bowl halftime show in 2004.
