Dee Jay Daniels, Child Star of “The Hugley’s” sitcom, Charged with Murder & could face life in Prison
This is a story thta I came across that truly vexed and severely disappointed me. Child Star of the wildly popular 90’s sitcom “The Hugley’s” Dee Jay Daniels who played D.L. Hugley’s son Micheal on the show has been apparently charged with first degree and is now awaiting trial where he could face life behind bars. To make matter even more confusing, Daniels has been reported as a member of the L.A Street Gang “The Blood’s” and his gang affiliation apparently runs deeper than most would expect and Daniels name has also been linked to other murder’s in the L.A. area. The murder that lead to Daniels arrest was outside of an L.A. Nightclub after an altercation inside the club spilled out into the streets where a victim was reportedly stabbed to death by Daniels and two companions.
This case is sad because this is yet another story of young black who had the potential to take his life in a positive direction and go on to do great things, but he instead chose a path that will more than likely cut his life short at the age of 23, and potentially send him to prison for the rest of his life. This young man was known throughout the country as the young goofy kid on one of the only few positive black sitcoms in the 90’s yet he chose to throw all of his potneial away and fall prey to the allure of the street life. Sad, just simply sad.
so I came across a blog post about a woman named Anna Brown who died Monday March 26th in Missouri jail cell after St.Mary’s Hospital in Richmond heights Missouri refused her medical treatment after she came into the hospital complaining about excruciating ankle pain. It turns out that a sprained ankle Brown suffered weeks prior had actually caused blot clots in here legs which traveled through her body and eventually into her heart. Brown was arrested at St. Mary’s hospital after she refused to leave the hospital until someone gave her medical attention because she was ion so much pain that she could not stand and had forced her to be bound to a wheelchair. Police showed up at St. Mary’s hospital and arrested Brown on site and booked her on trespassing charges and drug brown from the squad car to her jail cell where she cried in pain as she died. Now to me this is beyond black vs white, this issue is about a color that is much more powerful…green. Brown was technically homeless as she was going through some life issues, and she was in a court battle to regain custody of her children, but as her records sated she was not a drug addict, she was simply stuck in a very tough financial and metal state. brown however was a medicare recipient but as we know in America that is simply not enough if you want a hospital to save your life. Once again America shows it’s true colors and reminds us that if you can’t afford health care…you’re probably going to die. This is a sad fact of living in this country and it is one that must change. Below is an article from a St. Louis newspaper fulling detailing the events of the case and the life history of Anna Brown so that you can get a complete image of the story and formulate your own opinion.
