Nas Calls For Electric Chair For Cop Who Shot Antwon Rose




The country mourns the death of yet another black teen. Seventeen-year-old Antwon Rose was shot in the back by local police in East Pittsburgh while he was running away after being suspected of being involved in an earlier shooting.

Rose was in a Chevy Cruze on Tuesday (June 19) when the Allegheny County Police pulled him and two others over since it matched the description of a car involved in a shooting earlier that day, according to CNN.

Around 8:30 p.m. that night, someone had fired nine .40-caliber shots at another person in North Braddock borough, as reported by the Allegheny County Police. The target fired back and was later admitted to the hospital to be treated for his wounds. A witness described the vehicle to the police and at 8:40 p.m., police spotted a car that fit the description. Rose was in that car.

Once cops ordered the driver out of the car, Rose and another passenger ran, Allegheny County police said. At that point, an officer opened fire and struck Rose. He was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

The driver of the car was released by police, but they are still looking for the other passenger.

Allegheny County Police Superintendent Coleman McDonough stated that the police recovered two firearms from the car but Rose was unarmed at the time of the shooting. McDonough is confident the car was involved in the earlier shooting that day due to “ballistic damage to the rear window.”

The unnamed officer who shot Rose is now on administrative leave, according to the Allegheny County Police. He had been serving for years in other local departments but had been sworn into the Allegheny County Police earlier the same day he shot Rose.

The Hip Hop community has been saddened and angered over the tragic death and Nas (who released a song called “Cops Shot The Kid” on NASIR last week) has expressed his disgust with an Instagram post with the caption, “Whoever killed him needs the electric chair in front of his family.”

A protest was held Wednesday night in East Pittsburgh.

US Fema Concentration Camps in Case of Martial Law – Full List


By The Associated Press


Over 800 prison camps discovered in the United States! They are heavily guarded by the national guard full-time, but are empty all the time! These camps are being run by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) should Martial Law take effect in the U.S. With just a simple order from President Donald Trump, Martial Law can be implemented, and he will remain, President in the White House, until it is over.

The Rex 84 Internment Camp Program

Which would mean he remains president indefinitely. The Rex 84 Camp Program, states. In an event which a “mass exodus” of Illegal immigrants flock over the border, they would be rounded up and sent to the FEMA camps. The camps all have railroad connections, as well as roads and highways leading straight into them. Almost all also have an airport within a close distance to the camps. Most of the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s prison camps can house 20,000 plus people in warehouse buildings and are secured by the national guard. The biggest of all the camps, however, is located in Alaska and could house up to 2 million people. The same amount of all the people in Los Angles. Just ask yourself, do you want to be on Ashcroft’s list?

Conspiracy theories about plastic coffins by Alex Jones and others

Fema Caixoes Federal Emergency Management Agency United States

According to reports by conspiracy theorists over 500,000 plastic coffins are stacked up in FEMA concentration camps “just in case something happens.” Alex Jones of Infowars published such a report about a FEMA facility back in 2008.

FEMA Concentration Camps debunked by Popular Mechanics?

Others claim these are fake news and tried to debunking FEMA camp myths as conspiracy theories. Glenn Beck also advocated conspiracy theories about the plan that the US government is planning to intern masses of people e.g. in case the evil depopulations ‘agenda 21’ by the New World Order proceeds. He later backpedaled and hosted a segment featuring a guest from Popular Mechanics, who ‘debunked’ Glenn Becks own claims.

List of all U.S FEMA Camps

There is a camp close to the most major city’s in the U.S so transporting people would not be a problem. Special protocols and massive training events have put in place to prepare for an influx of people. This means you and your family could be sent to a camp in this event. Try and prepare for this as best you can by sitting down with your family you discuss a plan of action in this event.

Try to have at least one months supply of clean water and emergency food for everyone including pets. Research more on FEMA camps to learn more locations near you. We must fight the new world order as best we can.

Violations found at converted Walmart housing undocumented children separated from their parents




Texas state inspectors identified nearly 250 violations at facilities run by Southwest Key, the non-profit organization now housing migrant children separated from their parents in a converted Walmart in Brownsville, Texas, according to records obtained by ABC.

Reports filed with the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) show 246 “deficiencies” — defined as failures to comply with regulations governing child care — at Southwest Key residential programs across Texas since the fall of 2014.

The company’s largest shelter for undocumented children, Casa Padre, which is a converted Walmart in Brownsville, has become a flash-point in the debate over President Donald Trump’s “zero-tolerance” policy that separated children from parents caught attempting to cross the border illegally. On Wednesday, the president signed an executive order ending the family separation policy.

ABC News’ Tom Llamas visited the facility late last week, which now houses 1,500 migrant boys ages 10 to 17, and observed it was clean and well staffed, with several activities to keep the kids busy during his tour.

However, HHSC records filed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services show that at Casa Padre alone, inspectors identified 13 deficiencies over the past year.

In one particularly worrisome report, dated October 2017, the facility’s medical coordinator “failed to follow up with treatment” for a resident who tested positive for an STD for a full two weeks.

At other Southwest Key residential facilities, which also house children apprehended at the border, reports noted a child with “unsupervised access to a tool/knife,” a child “clearly in pain” not given prompt medical care, and a child administered Tylenol despite an allergy to the medication.

HHSC records also documented children wearing “dirty clothing” and gathering in rooms that reached an “unsafe temperature” following an air conditioning outage.

Staff members were accused of showing up to work drunk, writing obscene language on a chalkboard, and repeatedly speaking to children in a “belittling” or “harsh” manner.

One staffer allegedly engaged in an “inappropriate relationship” with a child, one deficiency report said.

Southwest Key tells ABC News they undertook an “extensive investigation” for each violation, noting that in some cases, employees were retrained and disciplined, and some were terminated.

The company notes that over the past three years, Texas investigators evaluated Southwest Key on 78,570 issues, including many self-reported to regulators by the company, and found deficiencies in just 0.3 percent.

“We strive to provide the highest quality of care possible,” the company said in a statement, adding that every shelter employee completes 40 hours of training prior to working with children, and an additional 40 hours of on-the-job training before they supervise kids.

A spokesperson for HHSC, which documented the violations, told ABC the agency’s job “is to inspect and look for violations of our state standards… when we find them, we cite them and work with the facility to correct the issues.”

“Our focus is to help ensure safety,” he said.

The company’s large footprint

Austin-based Southwest Key operates at least 16 residential facilities across Texas, with 10 more in Arizona and California. About 10 percent of the children currently in their care were separated from their parents under Trump’s “zero-tolerance” policy, according to the company.

A spokesperson for Southwest Key told ABC News that they welcomed Wednesday’s order, saying: “We were pleased to learn that the president also signed a bill that will end the separation policy.”

Public records indicate the company employs around 4,500 people, and the company says it has served more than 23,000 children over the past two years.

So far this year, they’ve been awarded $458.7 million in federal money to care for kids detained at the border, including children separated from their parents and minors attempting to cross the border alone.

Just last week, the federal government awarded the company $147.8 million, the most money they’ve ever received in one sum, according to HHS records dating back to 2007.

Bob Carey, who oversaw Southwest Key’s contracts while serving as director of U.S. Health and Human Services’ office of refugee resettlement during the Obama administration, told ABC News that the company had a sizeable footprint.

Southwest Key Programs was “one of if not the largest government contractor for this purpose,” he said. “These are big, big grants, particularly if you’re doing on an emergency basis, extremely complex.”

The company’s CEO Juan Sanchez has defended their actions amid the new scrutiny.

“We’re not the bad guys. We’re the good guys,” Sanchez told ABC affiliate KVUE last week. “We’re the people that are taking these kids putting them in a shelter, providing the best service that we can for them and reuniting them with their family.”

“Somebody’s gotta take care of these children, no matter what,” Sanchez added. “If we don’t take care of them, who’s gonna take care of them? They’re going to wind up in a detention center, a real detention center, and other facilities that are not adequate for children.”

On the page dedicated to the company’s mission, it states that the company “is committed to keeping kids out of institutions and home with their families, in their communities.”

Sanchez — who, according to the company’s website, was “shaped by his experiences as a migrant worker” — has drawn ire for his high salary. In 2016, his compensation was listed as $770,860, which included $249,065 in bonuses and incentive compensation.

“Dr. Sanchez’s salary is well below the average, when measured in terms of a percentage of the organization’s revenue, in comparison to CEOs at non-profits of similar size,” Southwest Key said in a statement to ABC News, adding that his salary accounted for less than 1 percent of the group’s revenue.

While that compensation figure may strike some as large for the head of a non-profit, a spokesperson for watchdog group Charity Navigator told ABC News that such a salary “would not be considered atypical” because of the size of the organization.

A look inside the Walmart turned immigration detention center for children




For the first time since the Trump administration announced its “zero-tolerance” policy on illegal immigration, a small group of journalists was allowed into the country’s largest licensed shelter for undocumented children.

Interested in Immigration?

Add Immigration as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Immigration news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

Imagine being 10 years old, separated from your mother or father, not understanding why, and being taken to a hulking, windowless building filled with 1,500 other kids you’ve never met.

You’re allowed to make two phone calls a week — one of which hopefully is to a detained parent now thousands of miles away.

That’s the reality we saw.

(A Walmart-turned-shelter) houses almost 1,500 undocumented children.

The shelter is clean and well staffed, with activities to keep the kids busy and their minds off their unfortunate situation.

The kids we saw, for the most part, looked content. No crying, no one slouched in a corner alone.

But this was also a media tour, and journalists weren’t allowed to interview any of the children. Who knows what happens when the lights go out and they’re left alone with their thoughts?

The facility is called Casa Padre. It’s in Brownsville, Texas, in what (was once a Walmart.) About 1,500 boys aged 10 to 17 now call it home.

Murals are plastered on the walls of a Walmart-turned-shelter for almost 1,500 undocumented children.

It’s the largest licensed facility in the country. The vast majority of the boys crossed illegally and unaccompanied, but Casa Padre is nearing capacity as more children are separated from their parents at the border and shipped there.

On this night, 1,469 boys slept there. The official capacity is 1,497. An extra bed has been added to each room, which means there are five bunks inside a 10-foot-by-24-foot space.

The children get three daily meals and two snacks. They have access to video games, pool tables and classes where they can learn English and U.S. civics.

The children are each assigned a clinician to help them deal with separation trauma and mental-health issues.

The children spend about two hours outside — one hour in the morning, one in the afternoon. There are soccer and basketball courts.

The children, nonetheless, spend most of their day inside a converted big-bog store, the walls of which are plastered with murals of U.S. presidents quotations from them.

The quotation attached to a picture of Donald Trump reads: “Sometimes by losing a battle you find a new way to win the war.”

Southwest Key Programs, which ran the tour of the shelter for the group of journalists, operates 26 similar facilities, all of which are nearing capacity. Emergency shelters soon may need to be built to accommodate the inflow of children.

The average length of stay for an undocumented child at a facility like Casa Padre is about 56 days.

Officials at Casa Padre said: “The goal is to reunite families.”

The Rothschilds, a pamphlet by ‘Satan’ and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories tied to a battle 200 years ago




In early 2011, a branch of the very rich Rothschild family bought a controlling stake in Weather Central, a provider of weather forecasts to hundreds of broadcasters.

“As weather becomes more extreme around the planet, with greater human and financial ramifications,” Sir Evelyn de Rothschild said in a news release, “we believe that Weather Central will play a major role in mitigating damage and improving lives.”

This was big news in meteorology and broadcasting circles: It appeared that the Rothschilds, a prominent business family, wanted to take on the Weather Channel to expand its media holdings.

This was also big news for conspiracy theorists: To them, it appeared as though the Rothschilds, a prominent Jewish family that made a fortune in European banking in the 1700s, wanted to control the weather and profit from natural disasters.

The Rothschilds’ supposed control of the weather is a long-running conspiracy theory most recently leveled by D.C. Council member Trayon White Sr. (D-Ward 8), who tried to make amends this week with a special tour at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. (He left early.)

Controlling the weather is just one of dozens, perhaps hundreds, of unproved, bizarre and anti-Semitic allegations that have been leveled against the Rothschilds for centuries.

The list of their supposed atrocities, spread by militant pastors, fringe political candidates, and garden-variety nut jobs, includes controlling the world economy, bankrolling Adolf Hitler, plotting to kill Presidents Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy, founding Israel, funding the Islamic State, inflicting financial distress on Asians and, most recently, messing with the weather.

“Man, it just started snowing out of nowhere this morning, man. Y’all better pay attention to this climate control, man, this climate manipulation,” White said in a video posted to Facebook. “And D.C. keep talking about, ‘We a resilient city.’ And that’s a model based off the Rothschilds controlling the climate to create natural disasters they can pay for to own the cities, man. Be careful.”

It wasn’t the first time White repeated anti-Semitic conspiracy theories about the Rothschilds. During a Feb. 27 meeting with Mayor Muriel E. Bowser and other top city officials, he was captured on video claiming that the family controls the World Bank and the federal government.

When did this craziness about the Rothschilds begin?

A long time ago.


The Battle of Waterloo.

Napoleon’s retreat from the Battle of Waterloo. Original Artwork: After a painting by Steuben (Hulton Archive/Getty Images)

In 1846, three decades after Napoleon’s French army had been vanquished in what is now Belgium by a British, Prussian and Dutch force, a political pamphlet, signed “Satan,” went 19th-century viral. The Independent, a London newspaper, recounted the story of the pamphlet a few years ago under the headline, “The Rothschild Libel”:

Here is the story that “Satan” told.

Nathan Rothschild, the founder of the London branch of the bank, was a spectator on the battlefield that day in June 1815 and, as night fell, he observed the total defeat of the French army. This was what he was waiting for. A relay of fast horses rushed him to the Belgian coast, but there he found to his fury that a storm had confined all ships to port. Undaunted — “Does greed admit anything is impossible?” asked Satan — he paid a king’s ransom to a fisherman to ferry him through wind and waves to England.

Reaching London 24 hours before official word of Wellington’s victory, Rothschild exploited his knowledge to make a killing on the Stock Exchange. “In a single coup,” the pamphlet charged, “he gained 20 million francs.”

And the rest is anti-Semitic history.

“Although this type of speculation was widespread throughout anti-Semitic circles in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries, it was notably strong in the United States, where radicals of every stripe seemed obsessed by financial conspiracies,” political scientist Michael Barkun wrote in his book “A Culture of Conspiracy,” published in 2003. “The Rothschilds, who combined Jewishness, banking, and international ties, presented an attractive target.”

They still do, just not via pamphlet.

The conspiracy theories about the Rothschilds — and other groups, Jewish or not — are spread in online forums, self-published books, right-wing and religious radio programs, and especially YouTube, where seemingly normal and harmless people spin complicated, illogical theories that viewers seeking to confirm their owns views can easily find.

Take a YouTuber identified as “hudna1,” with nearly 5,000 subscribers.

In September 2017, a month after Hurricane Harvey laid waste to Houston, hudna1 posted a lengthy video in which she explained how it all came back to the Rothschilds.

“I am not an engineer,” she said. “But I have common sense.”

Her common sense goes like this:

Strange things have been happening on the planet. For instance, whales have been jumping out of the ocean.


Because, she claimed, of electric waves being sent out from Alaska by a U.S. government project to manipulate weather patterns. Her uncle, who served in the Air Force, told her all about it.

Anyway, the Rothschilds, she said, had “friends in high places.” They bought that weather company, after all.

So: They know the people in the government making the whales jump out of the ocean, which is very bad.

So: They are behind the hurricane.

Why is she convinced?

For one thing, she did research — on YouTube, not Google, which apparently can’t be trusted. “YouTube has more information,” she said. “Google is discreet.”

(Fun fact: Google owns YouTube.)

Besides that, she prayed on it. And what came to her, in a vision, was a “funny looking ogre” who had a “comedic sense” and was “very surreal.”

The Rothschilds.

“You,” a commenter wrote, “are a beautiful soul.”

Another wrote that “your observations are very insightful, I have learned so much from them.”

Just one quibble, however.

“The Rothschilds,” the commenter wrote, “are merely the Treasurer for the Vatican.”

Nicki Minaj Abandoned Trap For Boom Bap On “Queen” Album




Nicki Minaj is featured on the cover of ELLE’s July issue, and the story has arrived online. In the interview, she delves into everything from her Queen album to ex-boyfriend Meek Mill’s legal battles.

While speaking about the upcoming LP, Black Barbie revealed the project will be notable for its boom bap beats as opposed to any trap production.

“It has to be 80s,” she said, recalling a conversation with her collaborator J. Reid. “It has to be boom bap. I don’t want to do no trap shit ’cause everybody’s doing that shit.”

Minaj believes it would’ve been too simple to make trap records for the album, which wouldn’t live up to the high bar she’s set for herself.

“I feel like true icons shift music, uplift music, switch music, have the balls to take a chance,” she noted. “The things that people do come so easy to me. I could do it in my sleep. But I’m such a perfectionist that when something is too easy to me, I actually feel guilty. It would’ve been so easy to listen to all the trap music out there right now and say, ‘Let me just copy this. But I wouldn’t have been able to live with myself.”

The chart-topping MC even expressed some frustration with trap becoming the predominant style in New York.

“The truth of the matter is, trap has taken over so much that even our New York rappers are doing nothing but trap songs, because they feel that that’s the way to make it,” she said. “They’re rapping like people from down south.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Minaj stated that being single had a profound effect on her life. She explained that she experienced more growth in the last six months than she had during the previous eight years.

Minaj also seemed to express some regret about how her image may have influenced fans. She’s far ashamed of it, telling ELLE, “I love being sexy; I’m never gonna stop being an exhibitionist.” But, she’s become reflective about the impact of her sex appeal.

“I don’t really know how to say that without being offensive,” she said. “Maybe I was naïve, but I didn’t realize how many girls were modern-day prostitutes. Whether you’re a stripper, or whether you’re an Instagram girl—these girls are so beautiful and they have so much to offer. But I started finding out that you give them a couple thousand dollars, and you can have sex with them. I was like, ‘Yikes.’ It’s just sad that they don’t know their worth. It makes me sad as a woman. And it makes me sad that maybe I’ve contributed to that in some way.”

She continued, “I’ve always felt like it. But in a lot of ways, I don’t know if I’m doing the same thing they’re doing, because I’m selling sex appeal. So I can’t look down on these girls. I may not be having sex with people, but I’m still selling sex appeal.”

When questioned about equating sex and sex appeal, she agreed they’re not the same thing and spoke on misconceptions about herself.

“I just don’t know if girls who look up to me think that when I’m posting a sexy picture,” she stated. “I’m actually the antithesis of all of that. I’m more of, like, the snobby girl, like the ‘Uh, what’ type of girl. And I want girls to be like that. I’d rather you be called snobby or a bitch or conceited—I’d rather you be called that than easy, and a ho, and a slut.”

Jalal Mansur Nuriddin, The Last Poets Member and Rap Pioneer, Dead at 74




Jalal Mansur Nuriddin, whose work in the spoken-word group the Last Poets helped earn him the title of the “Grandfather of Rap,” died Monday. He was 74. 

It is with extreme sadness and a heavy heart that the family of Jalal Nuriddin announce the passing of this great pioneer of the recording industry,” his family said in a statement. “Jalal slipped quietly away this evening into the arms of Allah.” No cause of death was revealed.

Nuriddin contributed to the Last Poets’ 1970 debut album as well as the follow-up, This Is Madness. These albums, which paired minimal, driving, percussive accompaniment with emphatic, relentlessly political spoken-word vocals, are widely regarded as crucial early examples of hip-hop.

In 1973, Nuriddin also demonstrated his lyrical dexterity as Lightnin’ Rod on the storytelling solo album Hustlers Convention. Rapper Fab 5 Freddy dubbed Hustlers Convention “a cornerstone in the development of what is now a part of global culture [hip-hop]” in an interview with Noisey. Wu-Tang Clan, Beastie Boys and Red Hot Chili Peppers are among those who have lifted ideas from the record, with veteran producer Ron Saint Germain declaring Hustlers Convention“one of the most stolen and sampled albums ever made.”

“If you were 14 years old and trying to understand the streets, it was sort of like a verbal Bible,” Public Enemy’s Chuck D gushed in a documentary about the album.

Nuriddin, however, had mixed feelings about many of the rappers who came after him. He told Noisey that the music industry forces MCs “to talk nonsense, bitch about their lives, boast about their women, their drugs, their money, their ego – as long as it isn’t relevant to the liberation of the people’s hearts and minds.” He added, “I don’t even think about rap.”

Nuriddin was born in Fort Greene, Brooklyn in 1944. The Last Poets, which formed in the late 1960s, had multiple lineups – to help distinguish ensembles, one group took up the name the Original Last Poets – but Nuriddin was part of the lineup that had the most commercial impact. The Last Poets, released in 1970, peaked at Number 29 on Billboard’s albums chart, selling hundreds of thousands of copies of the lyrically and musically uncompromising LP.

After appearing on the Last Poets’ follow-up, This Is Madness, Nuriddin branched out on Hustlers Convention. The album replaced the sparse instrumentals of the Last Poets with liquid funk from a young Kool & the Gang. “Hustlers Convention is about two characters, who are saving themselves by any means necessary,” Nuriddin said in 2015. “It wasn’t like they were educated at Harvard, you know? They was already facing discrimination by coming from the ghetto. They had to use their wits without actually breaking the law, because then they would go to jail, and the younger one did go to jail.”

Hustlers Convention would go on to be highly influential, but at the time it was released, it barely sold at all despite its major label (United Artists) bona fides. In the years since, Nuriddin continued to record intermittently, though he never again achieved the mainstream exposure he enjoyed in the early Seventies. He made a cameo with the Last Poets in the Tupac-starring film Poetic Justice in 1993.

As reissues and archival releases became increasingly popular, historians and hip-hop fans alike became more interested in correcting the historical record to acknowledge the contributions of figures like Nuriddin. British director Mike Todd helmed a documentary on Hustlers Convention in 2015. The Hollywood Reporter called the film“austere but engrossing.”

Despite the efforts of Todd and others, Nuriddin struggled to make a living as the rappers who sampled him and paid homage to his work thrived. “Q-Tip was the only rapper who helped me out,” Nuriddin told Noisey. “He sent me a grand when I was stranded and it got me out of hot water.”

Nuriddin also worried that many aspiring rappers “missed the point” of Hustlers Convention. “It looks good on the surface: it’s fast, it’s quick, it’s a road to riches and maybe some local fame,” he said of the hustler lifestyle. “But at the end of the day you’re gonna pay for the crime, you gotta do the time.” The real takeaway from the album, according to Nuriddin, was, “you can hustle righteously and honestly, you just gotta practice.”

In a statement, Nuriddin’s family said that “details regarding his jananza (funeral) will be forthcoming shortly.”

Godfather was one of seven members of the Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E., alongside his actual brothers Gawtti, Kobra, Monsta O, Ganxsta Ridd, E.K.A, and Murder One. The brothers first gained attention as a dance crew called the Blue City Strutters, before eventually making the transition into music, releasing their debut album New Funky Nation in 1990.

The group as a whole were widely respected (and feared) throughout the industry.

News of Godfather’s death shocked many West Coast veterans.

“#RIP Godfather. You and #BooYahTribe laid the path for us. You’re a Carson legend & more than that; a West Coast TripleOG!” Ras Kass wrote on IG.

“Sad news. Rest in paradise OG west coast legend and icon,” wrote Paul Wall.

“Saddest news this year, the passing of a good brother OG Godfather — Booyaa Tribe,” said legendary photographer Estevan Oriol. “Sorry to hear this bad news my homies.”

Bill Cosby And Wife Camille Reportedly Heading For Divorce Following Rape Conviction



After being found guilty of sexual assault recently, Bill Cosby may now be facing a divorce from Camille Cosby.

The two are living separate lives, with Camille having left the couple’s Pennsylvania mansion and now residing in their Massachusetts hideaway, according to a report from Radar Online.

“He literally is home alone,” an insider said. “She even took the staff with her!”

Camille also reportedly had some family support as their three grown kids joined her in leaving. The children have allegedly not seen their 80-year-old father in months.

The report comes a couple of months after Cosby was convicted of drugging and raping Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his Pennsylvania home in 2004.

A jury of seven men and five women voted after about 14 hours of deliberation to convict the 80-year-old comedian on three counts of sexual assault after prosecutors called five additional accusers to the stand, Buzzfeed reported. The women testified that they were all drugged by Cosby. Four of them, including model Janice Dickinson, said they were also sexually assaulted.

Cosby could spend his last days alive behind bars if he’s given the maximum sentence of 30 years in prison — a maximum sentence of 10 years and a fine of up to $25,000 on each of the three counts.
