23-Year-Old Diamond Chanel Speaks From Prison

Liberian artist, Diamond Chanel known for remixing Bucky Raw 'Come Jeh Me', was arrested on March 21, 2018, for Possesion of illegal drugs, firearm, cocaine, and marijuana. Speaking with C Liberia Clearly, yesterday on the phone, the artist told us that she is guilty by association.  In her own words, "My case is complicated. I was at the wrong place at the wrong time. I was in a car with an old friend, five minutes away from my house when we were pulled over by the cops.  I had no ideal the driver had those illegal items in his car. My lawyer is working to get me out as soon as possible."
  
We asked the young artist what has she learned from the experience so far, she replied, "I learned that I need to surround myself with positive people and choose my surrounding careful.   I am not the best person in the world, I have done things that I am not proud off, but I have no intention of making the same mistakes over and over. I don't want to become a statistic. That is the moral to the story.  I am good.  Some days are not the best days in here, but I wake up with a positive attitude every day.  I have a lot of great pray warriors praying for me." 

The artist is hoping to be out by July 5, 2018.  Diamond was already on a felony probation before this incident.  We hope the artist nothing but the best outcome.

'He kicked me in the stomach, I peed on myself. He body-slammed me to the floor twice and told me he would kill me, no one will find my body.: In her journey to recovery, domestic violence survivor Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman tells it all

The tragic story of Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman, like that of Agnes Yarlee and Diane Hart before her, has brought the issue of domestic abuse out of the dark unspoken place it thrives and into the open.
It's horrendous that it takes the death of women, or an attempt to kill women, to get a serious debate  on the issue of domestic abuse. Discussing domestic violence in our society is a real taboo and most men within the Liberian society, don't even find the topic worth their time, as compared to discussing sports, politics and corruption. 
But these women mention above are just the tip of the iceberg.


Defying the odds, Mrs. Dennis-Freeman refuses to keep her mouth shut and go with the flow of the Liberian society.  She courageously sat in a wheel chair up to 1:30am, sharing her story with C Liberia Clearly.  In her own words, she walked us through the day that led to her horrific story.

“I commend Mayor Smith. He’s done a great job for the city, and I hope to work with him in the future," Collins said. 
At the La Pa Grill on 6th Avenue in downtown Helena, Collins and other members of the self-described “progressive ticket” watched and waited for the results of the 2017 election.
The feeling was festive as Collins received a call from U.S. Sen. Jon Tester congratulating Collins on his victory. Victory cigars were passed around the room at the …
