Live Session: Christopher Darkins
The Hype Magazine caught up with Former NFL Green Bay Packer and Super Bowl Champ Christopher Darkins to discuss the YahLife Nation, its Criminal and Economic Justice Syndicate (CEJS) as well as one of the high-profile cases they are currently working on for Atlanta rapper and community activist Ralo. Ralo became a victim of the federal justice system after aggressively executing a “buy back the block” program which saw him purchase an apartment building and allowing tenants to reside there free of charge while at the same time receiving a stipend to keep body and soul together. Ralo also made national news when he determined he would give his money to the homeless rather than throw it in the strip club. He publicly threw approximately $10,000 to a group of homeless help seekers making headlines. Subsequently, the apartment building was raided and Ralo was later arrested on conspiracy charges. Currently, he’s inexplicably being held without bail.

Dark America: Trust Betrayed, Elder Abuse
Interview with Willie Gary, Esq. Colette Green visits her mother daily, and during an August 2018 visit, she noticed unusual bruising and swelling around her mother’s rectum and vaginal area while giving her a bath. She reported this to the nursing home director, and despite numerous complaints that day, her pleas for help went unanswered. Upon returning the next day, Colette became increasingly alarmed because there were additional bruises, more swelling, and no answers. At wits end, she immediately removed her mother from CCH and took her to DePaul Hospital where she was examined, and doctors there determined that her mother had been repeatedly raped and sodomized. Famed Attorney Willie Gary of Gary, Williams, Parenti, Watson and Gary, PLLC, and Richard Banks, of Banks & Associates, LLC, have filed a billion-dollar lawsuit against the defendants for their gross negligence in the operation of this nursing home facility, and complete failure to provide adequate protection for residents such as Mrs. Green.
