R. Kelly Fan Was Arrested After
Allegedly Threatening To Storm The
Office Of Prosecutors

New York officers have arrested and charged an R. Kelly fan for threatening the federal
prosecutors who convicted the disgraced singer in his sex trafficking trial last year.
Court documents claim that Christopher Gunn, of Bolingbrook, Illinois, was angry that R.
Kelly was convicted of sexually abusing underage girls, and planned to “storm” the
office of three female prosecutors who worked the case. A judge has ordered that Gunn
remain in custody ahead of a detention hearing later this week.

According to the New York Times, Gunn was taken in by federal authorities after
officials obtained an arrest warrant on Saturday. The charge comes after prosecutors
presented evidence saying that Gunn posted on his Youtube channel where he showed
photos of the US attorney’s office in Brooklyn, and stated “that’s where they at. That’s
where they work at…We’re going to storm they office.” Evidence also shows Gunn had
purchased ammunition ahead of R. Kelly’s sentencing date.

If convicted with the charges, Gunn faces up to about five years in prison.

Buzzfeed News reports that Gunn attended the last day of Kelly’s trial back in 2021. A
spokesperson for the US attorney’s office confirmed to Buzzfeed News that Gunn was
arrested by the NYPD outside of the federal court that day.

According to court documents, after Kelly’s trial in September, the following month Gunn
vowed that “if Kellz goes down, everybody’s going down.”

The disgraced R&B singer was convinced of one count of racketeering and eight counts
of sex trafficking. He is expected to be sentenced on Wednesday, and faces more than
12 years in prison.

    CDC No Longer Recommending Covid-Exposed People To Quarantine

    With the Covid-19 pandemic still persisting over two years after it began, the most recent CDC announcement that relaxed mandated quarantine may suggest that cases are decreasing, and we can see the light at the end of the pandemic tunnel. Unfortunately, that is not the case, but rather that our society has naturally adapted to the existence of this pandemic, with the CDC sharing that “This guidance acknowledges that the pandemic is not over, but also helps us move to a point where COVID-19 no longer severely disrupts our daily lives.”

    Grand Jury Will Not Indict Women who Accused Emmett Till

    A Mississippi grand jury has declined to indict the women whose accusation set off the lynching of Emmett Till.
