Crowley, Obama, Gates

Crowley, Obama, Gates

President Obama will meet this week with Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. and Cambridge, Massachusetts, police officer James Crowley, who arrested Gates for disorderly conduct, the White House said Monday.

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs did not announce the date or time the three men will convene at the White House, reports CNN.

Last week, Obama said that he called Crowley, and “there was a discussion about he and I and Professor Gates having a beer here in the White House.” Gibbs said: “I think it was Sergeant Crowley’s suggestion about the beer, and I think the president thought it was a good idea.”

Obama said he hoped the incident in Cambridge — which quickly spiraled into a national, racially charged controversy — “ends up being what’s called a teachable moment” for the country. The president acknowledged that he had contributed to “ratcheting it up” by declaring that the police department had “acted stupidly” even though he didn’t know all the facts of the case and is a personal friend of Gates.

Cambridge police had called on Obama to apologize for the remark. Obama did not apologize, but in the phone call with Crowley he said his choice of words was “unfortunate.”


Conrad Murray

Conrad Murray is citing law enforcement sources who say that Michael Jackson was already dead when paramedics arrived at his home following a 911 call, but that his personal physician Conrad Murray insisted that he be taken to the hospital anyway.

Citing multiple sources, the website says paramedics wanted to pronounce the King of Pop dead at the scene, but Dr. Murray – as a higher medical authority than the EMTs – had the power to overrule them.

Paramedics reportedly arrived to find Jackson with an IV in his arm, an IV stand nearby along with an empty IV bag and oxygen tank.

TMZ says paramedics who arrived on scene say Dr. Murray’s conduct was “strange” — he was “hard to deal with” and was “getting in the way” of emergency responders.

Also, paramedics didn’t realize for nearly 10 minutes the victim was Michael Jackson. As one emergency worker put it: “It just looked like a frail, old, sickly man.”

*Meanwhile, the AP is reporting that Dr. Murray administered the powerful anesthetic to help the singer sleep, and authorities believe the drug killed Jackson, according to a law enforcement official.

The official said Jackson regularly received propofol to sleep, relying on the drug like an alarm clock. A doctor would administer it when he went to sleep, then stop the intravenous drip when he wanted to wake up. On June 25, the day Jackson died, Dr. Conrad Murray gave him the drug through an IV sometime after midnight, the official said.

Though toxicology reports are pending, investigators are working under the theory propofol caused Jackson’s heart to stop, the official said. Jackson is believed to have been using the drug for about two years and investigators are trying to determine how many other doctors administered it, the official said.




LeToya. A single name ringing a whole lot of bells. Though one month remains before her album hits stores, LeToya Luckett has already piled up a year’s worth of accomplishments.

The video for the Top 10 national Urban radio hit ‘Not Anymore’ continues its steady climb up BET’s 106 & Park countdown, perched at No 3 as of recent weeks. She co-hosted this popular video show yesterday.

At a moment of emotional gravity for music fans everywhere, LeToya took her place twice, first, as a performer; then, as a presenter, at the recent 2009 BET Awards, which by coincidence was the first celebrity gathering following the passing of Michael Jackson and unexpectedly became a public memorial.

LeToya appeared on the awards’ pre-show, singing the sweeping ‘Not Anymore,’ the first single off forthcoming album ‘Lady Love’, due out August 25, 2009. She presented an award during the primetime portion, which was viewed on 10% of all televisions nationally that night.

Meanwhile, driven by the single and video, LeToya’s MySpace numbers astound: her page has been visited over four million times, and ‘Not Anymore’ has registered a whopping 7.6 million plays.

The smash success ‘Not Anymore,’ written and co-produced by Ne-Yo, paves the way perfectly for second single ‘She Ain’t Got…’ The thrashing, throbbing anthem, written by Chris Brown, is a hit in more ways than one.

LeToya is teaming up with Major League Baseball in rolling out ‘She Ain’t Got…’; check for a LeToya interview and music video tie-in. Or keep your ears open the next time you attend a baseball game, as song snippets will be resonating throughout stadiums across the country. Better still, watch for the song’s music video, featuring current Los Angeles Dodger stars Matt Kemp and Orlando Hudson, as well as Hall of Fame player Dave Winfield.
