The rapper and star of the Starz TV series “Power” — legal name: Curtis Jackson — said on social media that he did not know about the threat until he read the headlines Sunday morning.
He is concerned that he was not previously advised of this threat by the NYPD and even more concerned that Gonzalez continues to carry a badge and a gun.” A rep for 50 Cent told the News, “Mr. Jackson takes this threat very seriously and is consulting with his legal counsel regarding his options going forward.
 
In May, Gonzalez filed an aggravated harassment complaint against 50 Cent, claiming the rapper had threatened him on Instagram, according to the News. 50 commented on a lawsuit that accused Gonzalez of shaking down the owner of a Brooklyn club when he wrote “Get the strap,” using slang for gun. Gonzalez, who has been with the NYPD for nearly 30 years and remains on active duty, the paper reported, tried to pass off the order as a joke. But the matter was reported to police headquarters, which began an investigation, as the rapper and Gonzales had exchanged words before. In the complaint, Gonzalez said several of the rapper’s followers responded with their own threats, which left him “in fear of his safety.” 50 Cent took down the Instagram post and no charges were filed.
A New York City precinct commander is under investigation for allegedly telling officers to shoot rapper 50 Cent on sight, a police rep confirmed to Variety on Sunday. “The matter is under internal review,” an NYPD rep said, declining to answer further questions.

Cardi B’s kinetic set consisted of snippets of her hits – “Bodak Yellow,” “I Like It,” “She Bad” and “Be Careful.” “We need to tone it down for my health,” she said mid-set. “It’s asthma season. I can’t breathe.”
The overriding Global Citizen concern is to end world poverty by 2030. Sub-topics throughout the day included stopping ocean pollution created by plastic — one speaker warned of an island made of plastic the size of France — and putting a halt to cash bail.

Due to the fence fall and ensuing pandemonium, the show was extended an extra half hour to allow The Weeknd to finish it up, albeit with a shortened set of his hits – “The Hills,” “Can’t Feel My Face,” “Party Monster” and “Secrets.”
At 8:15, about 40 minutes after the commotion and with some of the crowd returning to the area where the fence collapsed, Jackson hit the stage, performing a seamless set of her hit songs from the ’80s and ’90s, including “Rhythm Nation,” “Nasty,” “Miss You Much,” “What Have You Done for Me Lately,” “When I Think of You” and “Control.”

I’m not done yet.” Andrew Cuomo declared. “The cash bail system violates justice,” New York Gov.

These deployments are not based on specific threat information, but rather out of an abundance of caution until we learn more about the suspect and motives behind the Maryland shooting,” said John Miller,  IDeputy Commissioner for Counterterrorism and Intelligence at the NYPD. “It has become a standard practice to shift resources strategically during active shooter or terrorist events.”

It was Christmas Eve, babe
In the drunk tank
An old man said to me
"Won’t see another one"
And then he sang a song
‘The Rare Old Mountain Dew’
I turned my face away
And dreamed about you
Got on a lucky one
Came in eighteen-to-one
I’ve got a feeling
This year’s for me and you
So, Happy Christmas
I love you, baby
I can see a better time
When all our dreams come true
They’ve got cars big as bars
They’ve got rivers of gold
But the wind goes right through you
It’s no place for the old
When you first took my hand
On a cold Christmas Eve
You promised me Broadway
Was waiting for me
"You were handsome!" "You were pretty
Queen of New York City"
When the band finished playing
They howled out for more
Sinatra was swinging
All the drunks, they were singing
And we kissed on a corner
Then danced through the night
And the boys of the NYPD choir
Were singing ‘Galway Bay’
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day
"You’re a bum, you’re a punk"
"You’re an old cut on junk
Lying there almost dead
On a drip in that bed"
"You scumbag, you maggot
You cheap lousy [?]
Maybe Christmas, you [?]
I pray God it’s our last"
The boys of the NYPD choir
Still singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells are ringing out
For Christmas day
"I could have been someone"
"Well, so could anyone
You took my dreams from me
When I first found you"
"I took them with me, babe
I kept them with my own
Can’t make it all alone
I’ve built my dreams around you"
The boys of the NYPD choir
Still singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells are ringing out
For Christmas day

NBC is developing a new series based on the iconic novel series after CBS attempted such a project last season. CBS Television Studios is also still attached to produce.

This will be a completely different version than the original at CBS. She is not currently attached to the NBC version.” /> That project would have focused on Drew, now an adult who works as a detective for the NYPD, where she investigates and solves crimes using her uncanny observational skills, all while navigating the complexities of life in a modern world.
