A rookie, a brother and a hail of gunfire

   

A rookie, a brother and a hail of gunfire

IT'S 8:00 A.M. on July 1, 2016, and a vibrating iPhone jolts Malcolm Delaney awake. Groggy from the prior night at the Miami nightclub Cameo, he rolls over to see the name of his agent, Andrew Vye, glimmering on the screen. God, would Malcolm love to go back to sleep -- he and his friends got in only five hours earlier. But he knows the period in which NBA teams can sign new players has just begun."Good news," Vye says, when Malcolm calls him back. The Hawks are interested in Malcolm's services. More than interested. An offer is imminent.Malcolm has spent the previous five years overseas. He has lived in France, Ukraine, Germany and Russia -- five years, four countries, three time zones. And though NBA teams have come calling before, this time, it's different. Malcolm is a free agent; there's no buyout or contractual clause standing in the way. In just a few hours, Malcolm, 27 -- seven years older than most first-year NBA players -- will earn the designation he has coveted since he graduated from Virginia Tech a half-decade ago: NBA rookie.He takes out his cell phone and opens up a group chat where he keeps touch with his closest friends: "I just signed with the Hawks," he writes.Read full story: http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/20358837/how-hawks-guard-malcolm-delaney-began-nba-career-family-traged

Cop: I got fired a year before retirement - for stealing $20

A cop from a notorious Brooklyn precinct is complaining that he was treated unfairly - losing his job a year before retirement for stealing just $20.Officer Richard Arroyo, who worked out of the 75th Precinct in East New York, is suing for reinstatement, arguing that if he could be booted for such "minor misconduct" then "no New York City police officer's job is safe."That logic makes some kind of twisted sense in the 75th - which was made infamous by cops like Michael Dowd, who in the 1980s and 1990s shook down drug dealers for big bucks."I just feel like other people, other people are doing a lot worse than I am and still have their jobs," Arroyo told The Post outside his Long Island home.The veteran officer's downfall came when he was targeted in a random "integrity test," on April 20, 2016, that he failed miserably, according to records.He pulled over a drunken driver, who turned out to be an undercover cop, according to court papers. He then rifled through the undercover's SUV and took the 20 from a roll of bills in a cup holder that totaled $55, according to the NYPD report on the sting.Arroyo, who joined the force in 1998, claimed he only counted the dough.The 47-year-old Islip resident later admitted he took the money but said he "was human" and regretted the mistake, according to the report.His Manhattan Supreme Court suit touts a "long and unblemished NYPD history, filled with dozens of medals," including - ironically - one for reporting attempted bribes. Yet the department found that in his first four years on the job, he faced three allegations for excessive force, abuse of authority or offensive language toward civilians.The married dad says in court papers that his punishment - his ouster plus losing his retirement benefits - "is shocking to the conscience."A city Law Department spokesman said, "We will review the suit.

South Africa 'red alert' on Zimbabwe first lady

(AP) - The Latest on the assault allegation against Zimbabwe first lady Grace Mugabe
South Africa's police minister says a "red alert" has been issued to prevent Zimbabwe first lady Grace Mugabe from leaving the country before she settles the accusation that she assaulted a young model.The African News Agency reports that Minister of Police Fikile Mbalula said that all borders have been notified not to permit Mugabe from leaving the country until the matter is resolved.South African authorities are debating whether to grant Mugabe diplomatic immunity which Zimbabwe's government has requested.Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe has arrived in South Africa as his wife is accused of assaulting a young model.Mugabe flew into Pretoria with his entourage late Wednesday night, apparently to help his wife with the ongoing scandal. The Zimbabwean president arrived early for a regional summit of southern African nations.The model who accuses Zimbabwe's first lady of assault has been offered help by a prominent lawyer who secured the murder conviction of Oscar Pistorius.Gerrie Nel, a former state prosecutor who now works as a private prosecutor for AfriForum, an organization that primarily represents the rights of South Africa's white Afrikaner minority, said he will offer legal help to Gabriella Engels, the 20-year-old woman who filed a complaint of assault against Grace Mugabe.Source: A

Bruno Mars donates $1 millions dollars from concert to Flint water crisis


NEW YORK (AP) - Bruno Mars said Saturday he is donating $1 million from his Michigan concert to aid those affected by the Flint water crisis.The Grammy-winning star told the audience at his show in Auburn Hills, about 30 miles (48 kilometers) from Detroit, that he and tour promoter Live Nation are redirecting funds from the show to the charity The Community Foundation of Greater Flint.In 2014, Flint switched water sources and failed to add corrosion-reducing phosphates, allowing lead from old pipes to leach into the water. Elevated levels of lead, a neurotoxin, were detected in children, and 12 people died in a Legionnaires' disease outbreak that experts suspect was linked to the improperly treated water."I'm very thankful to the Michigan audience for joining me in supporting this cause," Mars said in a statement. "Ongoing challenges remain years later for Flint residents, and it's important that we don't forget our brothers and sisters affected by this disaster."Mars, who was born and raised in Hawaii, performed at the Palace of Auburn Hills during his sold-out 24K Magic World Tour. His latest album, "24K Magic," recently achieved double platinum status.____Online:http://www.brunomars.com/https://www.cfgf.org/cfgf/
