President Trump’s Campaign Mail Illegally Seized In New Jersey

It is no surprise to anyone when they hear a story surrounding police controversy these days however this one touches the political arena.

On the evening of September 4th, 2020 in Monroe County, New York a truck was involved in a accident resulting in the death of 2 people and the trucker fled the scene before the police arrived. The suspect drove away in his truck and returned to the truck yard located in Jersey City, NJ owned by Kandi Holdings LLC.

Mr. Kyron Hodges the owner of Kandi Holdings LLC was alerted to a police investigation at his truck yard. He arrived and asked the investigating officers with the Jersey City police dept what was going on. They informed him about the accident and that the suspect is one of his drivers. The driver however was never arrested and the truck was not seized only the trailer with the mail in it even though the driver told them they have the wrong truck.

They went on to tell him the trailer would be impounded during the investigation. He explained the load inside the trailer is very important vip cargo and needed to be delivered. The police refused to release the cargo and stated it is part of the investigation.

Mr. Hodges went on to explain the load consists of Donald Trump’s campaign mail and the importance of its successful delivery. The officers did not care and continued with what they were doing. Mr. Hodges then asked if they had a warrant to seize the load of mail and they replied they did not but they were seizing it anyway. Mr. Hodges was shocked by their reply.

Mr. Hodges has a history of harassment from local police over the years but this time he was truly shocked. The police are disregarding the fact that mail from the United States President is being kept from delivery for no reason. Mr. Hodges explains they are not answering his calls and will not tell him the whereabouts of the presidents campaign mail that was illegally seized in New Jersey and taken to New York Please weigh in with your thoughts in the comment section. Is this an attack against Trump’s campaign by local law enforcement or just a disregard to the constitutional rights of Americans or an attack on Mr. Hodges? Hmmm, a lot to take into consideration. This is a story I thought should be brought to light.

A Candid Conversation with Lay’na Michelle

Today we sit down with the one and only #rnbempress Lay’na Michelle to talk about all her current achievements in the music industry.  In this one on one in depth interview we talk about her awards, being the first indie artist ever to perform live for the Detroit Pistons Pregame Show at the Little Caesars Arena, her new single “Certified” and more!  Read all about Lay’na Michelle below and follow her on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/laynamichelleofficialpage/

Supastars Online Magazine:  How would you describe yourself as an artist?

Lay’na Michelle:  As an artist I’m the one that aims to put your mind at ease.  Someone who is creative and confident in my ability to do so. I’m 420 for your ears.

 

Supastars Online Magazine:  What makes you the one and only #rnbempress ?

Lay’na Michelle:  I have listened to all types of music from different decades all my life.  I take something from every queen/legend that has made an impact in music.  For example I take the confidence and boldness from Etta James, the style & grace from Aretha Franklin, the energy from Whitney Houston, the relaxation from Erykah Badu, the laid back vibe from Ms. Jilly from Philly, the strength and soul from Ms. Tina Turner and so on.  I make sure to represent the queens .  Take all the ingredients presented and you get me.  The Royal Noble & Beautiful Empress or the #RnBEmpress.

 

Supastars Online Magazine: You have won many awards, could you tell the readers about the multiple awards you’ve won over the past few years?

Lay’na Michelle:  My first award I won was fan choice BBW entertainer of the year in 2018 from an organization called ThickNation based in Las Vegas.  I was also given “Phenomenal Album of the Year” from the same organization the same year.  2019 I was awarded the Spirit of Detroit Award and 2020 I was voted Female artist of the year at an independent award show in Jacksonville, Florida.  I am truly thankful and blessed to know that the music I put out is being heard and acknowledged.  I’d have to say though, my best award comes every day when a person supports my brand and tells me that I am doing a wonderful job.  That’s something I could never put on a shelf.  It stays right here in my heart.

 

Supastars Online Magazine: You also made history by being the first indie artist ever to perform original music for the Detroit Piston’s Pregame Show at The Little Caesars Arena in Michigan?  Could you tell the readers about that experience?  What was it like?

Lay’na Michelle:   To have a crowd of people from different walks of life embrace me with so much love was life changing.  Even though probably a high percentage of people in the crowd may have never heard of me, cheering me on and off the court I knew then this is truly my calling.  If they never heard of the #RnBEmpress they have now J.

 

Supastars Online Magazine:    How did performing at Little Caesars Arena for the Detroit Piston’s Pregame affect your  career moving forward?

Lay’na Michelle: I gained more confidence which helped me to accept more bookings and know my worth.  I have anxiety which lead to my seizures.  After realizing that I was able to showcase my music, knowing more than half of the attendees most likely don’t know the words or ever heard my songs cheer me on was amazing.  I knew that I could conquer anything that comes my way. As long as I keep GOD first.

 

Supastars Online Magazine:  You currently have a new single out now titled “Certified”, how would you describe the single?

Lay’na Michelle:  A fun song that I pray helps people to realize that it’s nothing to it.  Just do it.  If there is something that you want to do in life DO IT.  Remember who your creator is.  You will have haters.  As I say, “when it comes down to it. I don’t mind being my own hype man.”

 

Supastars Online Magazine:  How has your 2020 been so far despite the Covid19 pandemic? 

Lay’na Michelle:  There’s been times that I’ve been hit with a bit of depression knowing that so many of the stages I was booked for have been put on hold. I took this time to sit back and reflect so I know how to make an even bigger impact for the rest of 2020.  Also I realize I’m “Certified”.  The RnB Empress has no time to stay down and cry.  Use what you have. Create a stage.  Stay Positive. 2020 owes me nothing.

 

Supastars Online Magazine:  What plans do you have for the rest of the year musically?Lay’na Michelle:   I’m currently working on my album.  I have a few things pending for September.  In October I’m performing at the Independent Award Show in Jacksonville, Florida.  Who knows?  We have 4 more months in 2020.  I’m staying optimistic.  Even if I have to create my own stage. Hint Hint lol

 

 Supastars Online Magazine:  Is there anything you would like the readers to know about you that we haven’t covered or discussed yet?

Because of my accomplishment at the Little Caesars Arena I was presented with an exhibit in the Charles H. Wright African American Museum.  To have the 4th largest African American museum to have a feature exhibit on me alongside the legends that have passed on has humbled me.  Then to find out I’m the only artist alive to have done so?  One word wow.  A lot of people say they are surprised at how my demeanor has not changed.  I reply, “Why would it? I’ve only began….”

 

Is there anything else you would like to plug?  Any shout outs?

Stay tuned to all my social media by going to www.laynamichelle.com for all updates on the one and only true R’n’B Empress.  I promise I won’t disappoint.  Thank you to Some Guy named Jay, my management 2SA Entertainment, look out for more from my Blu3 Dr3am Ave Collection Brand, my family, fans, my city DETROIT, and thank you to you and your team Waka Flocka FLAME! “O lets do it!!”

It’s 2020, The Racism Has To End!

I recently had the opportunity to interview a former African American police officer who was a victim of racism. His story is compelling and sad and this is the first time he speaks on it.

 

What is your name and where are you from?

My name is Arthur Avant and I’m from a small town in Mississippi called Looxahoma Tyro.
Tell us about your education?
I graduated high school at independence high school and received my degree in fine arts & liberal studies from southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
How many years have you been a personal trainer?
I have been a personal trainer for over 28 years, I’ve placed alot of athletes in college programs and I’ve trained quite a few that has went pro in track, baseball, football and the winter sport skeleton in which is a one man Bob sled, my training has always be sought out by many until this very day I get new clients.
You have always helped children for many years right?
Helping children is my passion,  I can say it started by watching my mom and dad not only deal with all of us as their children but those in the church, school and streets. I have done presentations at schools with my art work etc for over 30 years.
How many years were you a police officer?
I was a city police for 19 years and a county deputy for almost a year.
While a police officer you received several awards and accomodations right?
I have been blessed to receive many awards, the first one was the top cop award for being the best in the academy,  I’ve also received awards like police officer of the year, D.A.R.E officer of the year, mid south hero award for the state of Mississippi, Arkansas and Tennessee.  I have been recognized by the governor and was a CNN finalist for an award, a true blessing.
You worked as a Dare Officer, loved and respected by many?
I worked as a D.A.R.E. officer for 18 years and taught classes every semester to 2 schools,  I was extremely well respected by many, I was also known as AKA DOUBLE A for being the rapping police officer,  I did concerts all over and rapped to over 60 thousand children all over.
You were wrongfully accused of a crime of sexual nature, please give readers your side of the story.
Yes I was wrongfully accused and set up by the same justice system that I worked for,  many say it was jealousy, hate and others call it a racist act. Everyone involved was white and I was set up to take a charge for something that I would never do nor think about, they tried to use everything that I did well in the community and life against me, I was easy prey because I’m a trainer and I work with children. They used leverage from the me too moment where men were loosing their jobs by just hugging a lady or giving a compliment,  I’m not saying anything negative about the movement but some cases were not handled correctly, some men deserved to get charged yet some fell victim themselves of some who just knew all they had to do is accuse and boom. I was ready to go to court and go to battle. Now that the black lives matter is on the move it shows how a white officer can kill black man on the street and its hard to charge him, we see more and more blue on black crime, yet in my case, there was no video, no evidence, just people making false statements to stack the deck. I will maintain my innocence forever, I basically had the knee of the justice system on my neck for almost 3 years dealing with accusations but now I can breathe and not only tell my story but help others who have or will be set up by the system.
I became to big for a small city as a black man, a educated man, a successful man. Something had to be done to send me about my way. As you see it happens not only in the big cities but the small counties. Its alot of injustice going on and i came out of this because I am innocent and GOD knows this, I believe that he allowed this to happen to test my faith and give me a testimony to help others. So many blacks are being set up, they take charges they don’t have to take, the system plays a game called, let’s make a deal with their life. GOD IS STILL ON THE THRONE and its how I’ve come this far and how I will rise to the top,  the set back was just a set up and I’m set up for victory by his grace and mercy. What they meant to do was to destroy me and my reputation plus financially put me in the hole but GOD says no weapon formed against you shall prosper and I live by that. For over 900 days I was silent because of court etc yet the Bible tells you to be slow to speak and be still and know that i am GOD. I thank him for giving me this testimony and I thank you for the opportunity to start this new journey of helping others who are innocent as well. as a black officer who wore the blue I have an amazing story to share. Thanks again for this wonderful opportunity. GOD BLESS.
