LA DDA Cynthia Barnes Gives Repeat Offender Suge Knight Another Break

Cynthia Barnes just proved that Suge Knight has value. More value than victims/survivors, more value than the work of Detectives from multiple jurisdictions investigating the crimes of a unremorseful repeat felon. Knight was given multiple accomodations, multiple chances and decades of criminality. Even though Suge had a long history of violence against his community, he was always given a life boat. Why?

He must be a valued asset. He must be part of a bigger corruption. He must be an informant. Why would a repeat felon be given another break? Why would a person on his 3rd or 4th Strike be given leniency with the possibility of parole after multiple violent crimes and ongoing crimes happening still under his direction as he sits in jail?

Marion Suge Knight has value: more than victims, more than their families, more than the public safety, more than logic and more than the law.

If DDA Cynthia Barnes was a serious prosecutor, why not charge Marion Suge Knight under the Rico ACT?

“Passed in 1970, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) is a federal law designed to combat organized crime in the United States. It allows prosecution and civil penalties for racketeering activity performed as part of an ongoing criminal enterprise.” – Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) | Nolo.com

It seems blatantly obvious that Marion Suge Knight was the head of an ongoing gang of his own making that included his girlfriend Toi-Lynn Kelly, his business partner Mark Blankenship, his attorneys Matthew Fletcher and Thaddeaus Culpepper. All have been indicted and one is currently in jail for aiding and abetting Knight by a long list of crimes such as: bribing witnesses, selling sealed court evidence, intimidating witnesses and more. Is that not the definition of a criminal conspiracy. An organized gang with ongoing ramifications and threats to public safety? More court cases more using detectives and police to investigate Knight’s army outside jail that is still under his control? Is this not an “ongoing criminal enterprise” starring us in the face? Why isn’t a “gang” “mob” head of his on criminal organization charged to the fullest extent of the law? By giving Knight a plea to 28 years and all of this other cases dismissed, what bigger purpose does it serve? Is Barnes argument that the plea saves money? If Knight was tried under Rico that argument would be mute. The evidence was solid against Knight in all of the cases, there is substantial documentation of his crimes and proof. Why not show it? The public has the right to be protected from Knight’s ongoing crime family and what they are capable of. By being lax with Knight and not knowing what percentage of time he must serve of the 28 years, it gives repeat offenders another example of beating the law.

This makes no sense if DDA Cynthia Barnes was interested in respecting the rule of the law and ensuring the public safety, why did she and her office short change Los Angeles? What benefit was it to dismiss other charges for the city when triple damages could be gotten if Knight was charged under the Rico Act? Why did Barnes give Knight another possible get out of jail free card? He must have something that is valuable? Or Cynthia Barnes is just inept. Is Suge Knight another example of Celebrity Justice running amuck or is it more sinister? A larger example of corruption in the LADA working in concert with another authority? If Cynthia Barnes thinks dismissing victim’s rights and public safety concerns is a winning strategy, she is sadly mistaken. Cynthia Barnes has no business in higher office or dealing with survivors of violent crime in any capacity.

The Failure of the LA Judicial System To Stop Suge Knight Before Terry Carter’s Murder

KAT T-Shirt

When Suge Knight was at his bail hearing with his partner in crime comic Katt Williams for a 2014 robbery, he already had a long history of prior charges and probation. Judge Keith L. Schwartz of Office 56 of the Los Angeles County Superior Court presided. Schwartz who had overseen a Lindsay Lohan case, took sympathy for Knight and set him walking out the court with another bail. Judge Schwartz also gave a repeat offender and another trouble maker with the law Katt Williams the benefit of the doubt not the female photographer with no criminal history. Suge Knight had 2 strikes and this would have been his third. Judge Keith L. Schwartz believed Knight and Williams at the bail hearing where they stated the “the photographer” was taking pictures of a child. The judge who has run unopposed for his seat on the Superior Court, believed them without any corroborating evidence or hearing from the photographer. Both Williams and Knight skipped out of the bail hearing using their celebrity to celebwash the public. With Shawn Holley, who also had a favorable relationship with Harvey Levin, the go to attorney for in trouble celebs including Lindsay Lohan, on Williams side, Katt was ready to go full court press on TMZ.

TMZ was the place to go when a celebrity wanted to push their propaganda. And TMZ was more than happy to give Williams and Knight all the tape they needed to lie, harass and slander.

Both made videos pleading their case to the public - “they did nothing wrong, the female was doing inappropriate things with a child, there was no altercation” etc. Suge and Katt used TMZ as their own personal channel and bully pulpit. TMZ helped both by not reporting the robbery even though they were aware of the incident moments after it transpired. TMZ decided to wait until the pair were arrested a month later and posted an edited clip of the photographer being questioned by the investigating police officer who arrived on the scene moments after the crime.

TMZ held hands with Williams and Knight in their quest for getting away with crimes, building their fan base and making more money by promoting their “thug life” agenda. Diana Dasrath of TMZ called to get a sound bite from Knight's and Williams' robbery victim. During the telephone conversation, Dasrath told the victim that "No Lawyer Would Help Her". The victim refused to get an interview or a soundbite and ended the call.

The videos promoting the Williams-Knight robbery lies continued and escalated. Williams went on to do other interviews, concert tours, acting gigs and other crimes while free on bail. Keeping his gangster street cred relevant, Knight kept to the script of being an intimidating presence on the LA scene.

Standing by his monster red tricked out pick up truck, Knight went on to do a holiday video where he wore a red Christmas sweater. In the exclusive set up TMZ video, Knight said that in the coming year he was going to handle all his enemies. A few weeks later in 2015 Terry Carter would be run over to death by the same red monster truck that Suge Knight so proudly stood threatening his foes.

Judge Keith L. Schwartz is one of the many weak links in a chain of broken justice and public safety. His ego and his celebrity kissing attitude instead of actually reading over the facts, watching corroborating surveillance video or even questioning the victim, released Marion Suge Knight to do more harm. If Suge Knight was denied bail due to the facts that he was a repeat offender on his 2nd strike as well as violating his probation, would Terry Carter be alive? How many more crimes did Marion Suge Knight commit after the robbery? How many more did he do while in jail awaiting trial for murder? How many people did he threaten, harass and attempt to bribe? Even his girlfriend Toi-Lynn Kelly is in jail due to her helping him sell sealed court evidence to TMZ. Not only is his baby’s mamma locked up but his business partner and friend Lawyer Mark Blankenship has been indicted with the same sealed evidence case. Many of those who chose to hitch their wagons on the Knight train, have to stand trial for their attachment. Attorneys’ Thaddeus Culpepper and Matthew Fletcher were indicted for conspiracy, attempted bribery and perjury while attempting to get Suge Knight off on his murder trial.

Will TMZ be held accountable for purchasing sealed court evidence and aiding abetting Knight? Probably not? Will Judge L. Schwartz lose his Office 56 Seat on the Los Angeles Superior Court next time he runs for re-election? Will celebrities cases be tried differently in the future? Will victims be heard and taken seriously?

I have very little faith in the Los Angeles Justice System. Celebrity Criminals get the benefit of the doubt not the Survivors especially if a lone female comes forward.

My robbery case was dismissed against Suge Knight without prior knowledge or consent.

So where My Rights for a fair trail? Video Evidence was never released to the Public to clear me of the accusations that Katt Williams and Marion Suge Knight lied, landered me with and showed the robbery and the assault perpetrated by them.

To many 28 years for Marion Suge Knight is justice. That maybe true yet if Knight was denied bail while he had broken his rules for probation, Terry Carter would be alive. Celebrities need to be held accountable for their actions and not given extra chances when they have a proven track record of breaking the law with violence. So Goodbye Suge Knight and good luck to Katt Williams who was given multiple get out of free jail cards in both Georgia and California. Hopefully he is done with injuring and robbing people. after an 8 year run. Maybe he has learned from his former manager and friend Suge Knight not to kill anyone and realize he is lucky he escaped making the same fate.

Mark Blankenship: Suge Knight’s Ride Or Die Business Partner Indicted


Mark I. Blankenship is an interesting person. He looks more like a vampire than an attorney but yet he once practiced law until he stepped down due to irregularities in his business practice. You can find his legal back ground on the California State Bar website.

More recently, Blankenship has been in the news for helping his big Sugar Bear business partner Marion Suge Knight and one of his baby’s momma Toi-lyn Kelly selling sealed court video evidence to the pinnacle of journalism in today’s trump’s reality TV show society – TMZ. According to reports, it took several months for Kelly and Blankenship to get paid $55,000 for the video which shows Mr. Terry Carter getting run over twice by an enraged Marion Suge Knight. The former Death Row CEO was upset about his likeness in the movie Straight Outta of Compton and he wanted to be paid. So instead of handling the situation through attorneys, Knight decided to show up to the set and things went down hill from there escalating to the murder of Carter who according to sources was trying to help diffuse the volcanic situation.

Mark Blankenship and Toi-lyn decided to help Sugar Bear Knight by getting their hands on the surveillance footage that showed the death of Mr. Terry Carter by Suge and to sell the sealed court evidence to the virtuous TMZ. TMZ bought the tape for a reportedly $55,000 which was considered a steal since rumors were the pair wanted upwards of $500,000. Now the ride or die pair are indicted on multiple felony charges connected to the selling of sealed court evidence.
Below is a video from 2015, where Mark Blankenship defends his Sugar Bear – Marion Suge Knight.

SUGE KNIGHT: Bribes, Lies, Threats & A $55,000 Video Tape

What is Suge Knight’s end game? A mistrial by jury tampering? Threatening all witnesses and victims? Exhausting the court system as well as the plaintiffs? Going on more field trips by committing more crimes? Proving that the Los Angeles Court System is either corrupt and or incompetent or both?

For a man who has been playing the court system since the 1990s, as a gang member (allegedly) as well as the former CEO of Death Row Records, Marion Suge Knight has been flexing his authoritarian muscle for a very long time. He is a King Pin a Gangster a Racketeer. He flaunts that even now in court and behind bars.

Recently Knight has yet another indictment under the long list of other criminal acts added to his trophy belt. He has been accused of not only making criminal threats against “Straight Outta Compton” Director F. Gary Gray but he has been accused working with his attorney Matthew Fletcher of attempting to bribe witnesses to give false testimony.

Besides using his time behind bars to do mischief with one of his many attorneys, Knight has gotten his girlfriend Toilin Kelly and his business partner Mark Blakenship to do his dirty work on the outside. Kelly and Blakenship were indicted last week for selling sealed evidence by the court (the surveillance video of Terry Carter’s death) to Harry Levin’s TMZ for $55,000. Below is my take on the current news and below that video are 2015 videos of Matthew Fletcher talking outside the court and Mark Blakenship (Knight’s business partner) speaking on Marion Suge Knight’s behalf.





Marion Suge Knight Gets Another Field Trip By Threatening F. Gary Gray

Former Death Row Records kingpin, Marion Suge Knight was in court 09/11/2017 for doing another list of crimes this time while behind bars for murder. According to multiple reports Knight is accused of conspiring with, one of his many attorneys, Matthew Fletcher. While meeting with his Fletcher behind bars, Suge Knight discussed bribing certain witnesses to help him beat his murder charge and ways to  threaten ‘Straight Outta Compton’ director F. Gary Gray.

Marion Suge Knight latest criminal threats is  another charge of a growing number that show Knight is a criminal boss whose misdeeds do not cease just because he is locked up behind bars. There are some odd things going on in court while Knight is suppose to be at least pretending to be innocent. On Monday morning Knight was heard yelling for his attorney as well as trying to communicate with someone in the back of the court.

Dirty Diana Dasrath & The TMZ Threat

Diana Dasrath was the lesser known Queen of TMZ. Under Harvey Levin, her job was to get the story before anyone else. She ruled with an iron fist. Her mind games were legendary from sabotaging video cameras that her videographers were to use to giving her paps impossible locations to get to in rush hour traffic. She liked to keep her minions on a fire pit of insecurity and mind fucks.

Diana Dasrath came from London worked at WENN a paparazzi agency that once had a pre star Amy Winehouse as a receptionist. The story goes that WENN was a hippie type agency where coke and other party favors were used openly. Once Amy Winehouse became a huge international star, the same agency where she once answered their phones, covered her every move as she stumbled through London town highly addicted to booze and drugs.

WENN probably was the start of Dasrath rise to power where her heart was possibly crushed by a break up by the CEO’s son. Diana became an ice queen out for blood and power. Where could she get the control she so desperately craved? TMZ.

Diana Dasrath made a chess move to the “Thirty Mile Zone” in its heyday when Robertson Blvd was a hot spot for celebs like Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton to go shopping, the Ivy restaurant would still get A-listers and one could see a budding wanna be Kim Kardashian begin to make her mark on the reality world.

Diana created a list that had every one who was anyone’s address. And she built up her throne of male underlings that would be on her beck and call to get the story. To say Dasrath was ruthless was an understatement. Diana Dasrath finally had the power she craved and men to break. She was given full reign and for a while TMZ prestige grew.

But cracks were starting to show. There were rumors that drugs were openly used in the TMZ office. The older paparazzi that had made TMZ from the ground up were starting to realize that their iron clad contracts forbid them to pursue other “entertainment’ options such as appearing on other TV shows, getting movie roles or any other pursuit that would be seen as a conflict to the TMZ corporate shackles. They also realized that if they left TMZ they could not based on their contract work for another company with any similarities to TMZ for a period of several years. The harder the videographer worked and produced for Diana Dasrath/TMZ it was never good enough or it was never going to get them a reward. They didn’t own the content that they created and they started to realize working for TMZ has a highly stressful job that lead to serious addictions. One became addicted to the chase of excitement, the need to be constantly up and the lows with dealing with Diana and never getting her approval.

Diana Dasrath besides being an ice Queen she became the mother/lover figure who no matter what one did it was never good enough. She knew how to manipulate that weakness in her subordinates. She knew how to crush a person when they were at their lowest.

How does that connect into me? I watched and listened to stories from videographers complain and discuss Diana Dasrath’s dealings. In September of 2014 I was assaulted and robbed by Marion Suge Knight and Katt Williams. One of Diana’s underlings videotaped the aftermath while the investigating Police officer was taking my initial statement. He said he wasn’t recording he lied. He was. Instead of TMZ reporting on the robbery that night or the next day, they held on to the story. I failed to mention before that Diana Dasrath had multiple reasons for not going forward with the robbery. For one, Dasrath was close pals with Alki David FilmOn/HologramUSA CEO who owned the studio were Marion Suge Knight and Katt Williams were visiting the day when the crime occurred. TMZ had a relationship with Alki posting his P.T. Barnum-esque “entertainment’ stories such as Michael Jackson’s son and George Zimmerman fighting DMZ & Rampage. Alki David loved attention and Diana Dasrath gave it to him via media snippets on TMZ. The truth never matter much to Diana Dasrath and media whores whose only concern is money and power. So TMZ sat on the story until Katt Williams and Suge Knight were arrested a month or so later. But they edited the video clip of what I said to the BHPD. It only included me saying “Suge Knight is Dangerous” or something to that effect. The video was conveniently edited for the promotion of their story.

Diana Dasrath called me and requested a comment. I told her I was not giving one and that I only answered her call out of professional courtesy. In the past I had dealings with TMZ and I also knew how they treated contributors. More often than not contributors were throw under the TMZ bus when a celebrity was involved as was the photographer that was killed chasing the original “Justin BIeber smoking  marijuana story”. During her call, Dasrath said that no lawyers would help me – that she heard I was having difficulty finding an attorney for a civil suit. She seemed so happy and content over my misery. I ended the call with the feeling that my life was going to being fucked in regards to standing up for myself and legally going after the people that assaulted me. I knew TMZ was playing for the other team.

And it was soon proven by several exclusive videos of Katt Williams using TMZ as his bully pulpit to plead his case to the public. First he said there was “ No altercation with that woman”, then he said “that I was alone  with a child in the alley” – he failed to mention that the “child” was Suge Knight’s son and furthermore, who leaves their child unattended in an alley with cars speeding through? He said other untrue things but he didn’t realize that I had video disputing everything he had said on TMZ.

I gave the video to my agent who sold my video to TMZ because I was sick and tired of being used as a pawn on theirs as well as other lazy copy and paste whatever TMZ says sites. We live in a world where people believe the person yelling the loudest even if that person is on drugs or has other mental issues. A person doing their job professionally is given very little respect. Anyway, Diana Dasrath got her wish it has been more than a challenge to get legal help in Los Angeles when Suge Knight has hired so many of this town’s lawyers in previous cases. Also it is difficult to have confidentiality if law firms and their secretaries sell information to TMZ. TMZ used to brag about having so many police, court workers, law firms, valets and more on their payroll and speed dial.

So two years later after the crime that happened to me , Suge Knight stands accused of the murder of Terry Carter. TMZ made a killing repeating ad nauseam the running over of a man as if it was a Grand Theft Auto video game. The same man who was let out on bail on my case was freed on $500,000 bail. Suge Knight who appeared on exclusive TMZ video in a Xmas sweater in front of his beloved red truck threatening his enemies, is now in jail complaining about his health while he awaits trial for murder. My robbery case which happened first, is delayed until after the murder trial due to the seriousness of the Terry Carter case.

As for Katt Williams, he has had numerous run-ins with the law since 2014. To be fair he has had numerous allege crimes before but he has had a flurry in this year alone with 8 at last count. His fans don’t take the crimes/allegations seriously but his victims do.

The survivors of the crimes take violence seriously and the after effects of the medical bills, the stress, the depression and the physical challenges that have to be dealt with. We also can’t help but realize the court system needs some cleaning up so repeat violent offenders are taken off the streets sooner whether they are celebrities or not.

As for Dirty Diana Dasrath she is no longer working for TMZ. The ice Queen has moved on to other entertainment pastures. There was a rumor she was at Access Hollywood but I doubt her need for cruelty and viciousness can be satisfied at such a lily white venue.

Concussions Are Finally Being Taken Seriously

After a century of being a popular sport in America, football is finally taking brain trauma/concussions seriously. When you think about being hit by a person weighing upwards of two hundred pounds whose sole purpose is to violently take you down with a tackle, it is logical that your head would experience significant trauma after multiple hits. The NFL under much pressure has pledged $100 million in concussion research. Promising to do research and actually making changes are two different things. Americans love their violent sports and little about the consequences until it is too late especially if there is significant money and fame to be made. But I digress, any one can suffer from a brain injury/concussion. In the video below I share my story and some of the harrowing symptoms that can happen to you or someone you love…

Katt Williams Makes Joke Of Justice & His Victims

KAT Williams (1)
On Sunday July 24th, Katt Williams was arrested for suspicion of attacking a female employee at the Sportsmens’ Lodge in Studio City, CA. He was arrested and released on $20,000 bail. My question is why is Katt Williams out on bail in the first place?

In 2016 alone, Williams has been arrested at least 6 times:
1. 02/29/16 Punching A Leslie’s Pool Employee
2. 03/11/16 Holding 5 women at gun point and stealing their cameras
3. 03/09/16 Williams was arrested for a February crime for threatening his body guard – During a GA Police raid they found firearms and weed
4. 03/30/16 Katt Williams arrested for Fighting with a Teenager in Georgia
5. 04/28/16 Charged with Battery after Williams hit Waffle House manager with salt shaker
6. 07/24/16 Katt Williams accused of attacking female employee of The Sportsmen’s Lodge

Most of us regular law abiding citizens if accused of multiple serious crimes as well as having previous criminal records in multiple states and jurisdictions, we would not receive the repeated opportunities to post bail and to commit more “allege” crimes but we aren’t Williams.

Katt Williams is special.

Full disclosure, I am the photographer that was threaten, assaulted and robbed in the case involving Marion Suge Knight and Katt Williams.

Like many of the other victims, I have wondered why so many on social media and other news sites have previously made jokes of Katt Williams’ crimes?
Even one martial arts school took it upon itself to offer Katt Williams free classes after he was taken down by a teenager that he sucker punched. We live in a world where if someone is a celeb and/or rich they get a free pass to commit crimes over and over again. The victims are left with the carnage and the laugh track of sites like tmz and other negative promoters. It is all a big joke. Those so called “news sites” that strive for ratings over the truth, forget or intentionally don’t report the important facts.

Here is a big one – According to Zap2it.com from August 2013:
“Williams pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor battery charge on Monday (Aug. 19) in response to a Nov. 25 incident in which he struck a Target employee in Woodland, CA, a local CBS website reports. He was sentenced to one year of informal probation and ordered to stay away from the Woodland Target. Additionally, he was levied with a 10-year firearm prohibition and a $200 fine.”
Exclusive KAT Katt Williams (15)
Katt Williams obviously is big business. B.E.T. recently had Williams as a headliner and VH1 has exploited having Katt Williams being connected to the VH1’s Love & Hip Hop franchise. The court system makes money on all the cases that Williams has to post bail. The lawyers make money defending a repeat offender who always seems to have money to stay out of jail. It appears that negative publicity gets Katt Williams new gigs.

In 2013 the Sacramento Court demanded that Mr. Williams not be in possession of firearms for ten years which would mean until 2023. Not only has the “funny man” been shown in a March 2016 video playing with a gun while explaining his beat down in Philadelphia but while Katt Williams’ home was raided in Georgia during a search warrant, (after William’s body guard was held hostage) the GA police found weed and weapons.

I’m not a lawyer but why is Katt Williams given repeat passes when facing the Law that all of the rest of us easily respect? Why is Williams so special? It is truly sickening to wake up and to find out that Katt Williams threaten, injured and victimized someone else while the survivors of his madness attempt to move on with their life and try to heal themselves. Katt Williams’ theft of the Law is no laughing matter. It says a lot about the culture of celebrity and the cruelness of our country – coddling a comedian over facts.

Lastly, why is a repeat offender in multiple jurisdictions previous actions not held accountable in recent cases as a reflection of his/her character?
Yet victim’s names and privacy can be violated repeatedly for click bait sites?
