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.

The Below Article was taken from WJLB derived from an article in the Detroit News about a A teacher who was fired from her job after helping her students with their idea of starting a fund raiser for Trayvon Martin.
“Teacher Brooke Harris called this morning to discuss her recent dismissal as an English teacher at Pontiac Academy for Excellence Middle School. The 2-time teacher of the year told us that she was never given a real reason to why she was fired, when she says she was just trying to help her students do something meaningful…
JUST LISTEN FOR YOURSELF:
A few dozen people gathered at a Detroit church to rally against the the firing of a teacher whose students wanted to organize a fundraiser for Trayvon Martin’s family.
Via Detroit News:
English teacher Brooke Harris, 26, said she’s confused by her March dismissal from Pontiac Academy for Excellence Middle School.
On Tuesday night, clergy, community activists and others gathered at King Solomon Missionary Baptist to voice their displeasure over the teen’s death, as well as Harris’ dismissal. Harris said the idea for a fundraiser resulted from showing her eighth-grade journalism and yearbook class coverage of the slaying, and then asking them to write a short opinion piece.
Once a month, the school allows students to pay $1 to wear street clothes instead of their uniform, so students proposed that March 28 — the final class day before spring break — could be a day all students pay $1 to wear a hoodie, which is what Martin, 17, was wearing when he was killed.
Harris said the principal approved the idea, but Superintendent Jacqueline Cassell did not. The superintendent met with Harris and gave her a two-day suspension. While suspended, Harris said she went to the school’s literacy fair to drop off prizes and act as a guardian for a student. Harris met with Cassell again and was given a two-week suspension.
“I asked her if she could please tell me what I did wrong to come to the first meeting,” Harris said. “After I asked that question twice, she never gave me an answer — then she fired me.”
On Tuesday, Harris said: “I didn’t tell the kids, ‘Let’s go and do it anyway.’ I was actually, literally, in the process of talking to my kids about what we could do instead when Cassell requested the meeting with me and told me that I needed to let it go.”
Cassell said she couldn’t discuss personnel matters, but that she wanted students to focus on learning, not activism.”I’m a child of the civil rights movement,” Cassell said. But “this is not the time in the school year” to distract students from academics. “In every situation, there are work rules,” she said. “When rules are violated, there are consequences.”
