Police detectives threatened a 12-year-old witness to make him offer false testimony in a murder case and fabricated statements by him, according to a federal lawsuit filed Thursday by two brothers who spent decades in prison for a crime they didn’t commit.

The lawsuit, naming several living and deceased Cleveland police detectives and the city, also alleges it was common practice for detectives not to turn over notes, including witness statements, during investigations.

TV Land Drops Dukes Of Hazzard From Their Schedule Amidst Confederate Flag Controversy!

Looks like them Duke boys are in a heap of trouble! It’s been reported that TV Land has dropped The Dukes of Hazzard from its schedule completely!

The network had previously been airing the iconic series — which starred John Schneider, Tom Wopat, and Catherine Bach as mischievous cousins in Hazzard County, Georgia — twice a day.

While TV Land hasn’t revealed why it decided to drop the show from its broadcast, we’re pretty sure the choice has something to do with the boys’ getaway car, the iconic General Lee — which has a Confederate flag noticeably displayed on its roof!

The Confederate flag has been the subject of extreme controversy after last month’s racially motivated shootings that took place at a Charleston, South Carolina church.

TV Land’s move isn’t surprising — huge retailers like Walmart and Amazon recently announced that they would stop selling all merchandise related to the Confederate flag.

Is TV Land being overly sensitive or did they make the right decision to drop the program? SOUND OFF in the comments!

WWE Battleground 2015: Matches Sure to Cause Controversy Among Fans

Just like every other pay-per-view WWE hosts, the upcoming Battleground show offers plenty of potential for some controversial moments.

rc="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js">

With some real blockbuster matches in the offing, there will be plenty to talk about, both good and bad.

There are currently five matches booked for the show, and here are the ones which will cause particular controversy with the ever-demanding WWE fans.

 

Roman Reigns vs. Bray Wyatt

After his disappointment in the Money in the Bank ladder match, Roman Reigns will look to bounce back with victory against Bray Wyatt at Battleground.

So from where will the controversy come? Perhaps the fact that the likely victor will be Reigns, as he will no doubt be put over Wyatt to get himself back on the horse and back toward the main event scene.

Should that be the case and Wyatt is used merely as cannon fodder for another Reigns push, WWE fans will be beside themselves with fury.

Wyatt has not been used correctly at all since his rivalry with John Cena last year, and despite having the look and feel of a monster heel, he just doesn’t seem to be used well.

Should Reigns pick up the win in a fairly convincing manner, expect there to be plenty of uproar among Wyatt’s fans, and there are plenty of them. 

 

John Cena vs. Kevin Owens

Similarly, another bout that will cause uproar if the result isn’t done correctly is John Cena vs. Kevin Owens.

Actually, there is bound to be controversy here one way or another, as both men have huge armies of fans at the moment.

If Owens fails to go over on Cena and win the United States Championship, then it will just feel like Owens’ push over the last month or two will was completely wasted. 

It seems like KO has to be the victor here, but even if he does win, Cena‘s fans will be outraged. 

With the score tied up at 1-1 between the men, it looks like this will be the defining match in what has been a brilliant feud. 

Hopes are high that the contest will deliver in a similar way to the first two, and if it doesn’t, that’s another element which will upset WWE fans.
