Coming Monday on Isiah Factor Uncensored… An exclusive interview with Cyntoia Brown Long and her husband and my good friend J. Long… She talked about life after prison and how she’s trying to make a lasting impact after being freed on the murder charge! #CyntoiaBrown#JLong @j.longjfam
More about Cyntoia:
Cyntoia Brown Long (born January 29, 1988) is an American woman who was convicted of the murder and robbery of Johnny Michael Allen. Brown, who was 16 years old and involuntarily being prostituted at the time of the murder, claimed that Allen had paid her $150 to have sex with him, and that she feared for her life during their encounter, leading her to shoot him. Prosecutors argued that Brown killed Allen while he was sleeping in order to rob him. Brown was found guilty of robbing and murdering Allen and sentenced to life imprisonment.
She would have been eligible for parole at the age of 67. After renewed interest in her case in 2017, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam commuted her original sentence to 15 years and Brown was released on August 7, 2019. Her story is detailed in the 2011 documentary Me Facing Life: Cyntoia’s Story and in her memoir, Free Cyntoia: My Search for Redemption in the American Prison System.

EXCERPT FROM ARTICLE ON TAMINA COVID 19 TESTING:
Getting the site in Tamina took a few steps. First, Isiah Carey with Fox 26 News, was reporting in the area and discovered that there hadn’t been accessible testing done in the area. He reached out to the offices of Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, who is not the congressional representative for Tamina, who then coordinated with the Texas Division of Emergency Management to get the testing sites set up. Congressman Kevin Brady’s office also helped bring attention to the need for testing in the area to the Texas Department of Emergency Management and local officials.
The community of Tamina was established by freed slaves nearly 150 years ago.
And in 2020 they still don’t have a modern sewer system, fire hydrants, or even one location to determine if the residents of the predominantly Black community have the Coronavirus.
This is Our America in the era of Covid 19!
WHILE MAJOR METROPOLITAN CITIES LIKE NEW YORK, SAN FRANCISCO, AND HOUSTON ARE GETTING LOTS OF ATTENTION BECAUSE OF COVID 19 – SOME SMALLER MORE RURAL COMMUNITIES ARE GETTING THE SIDE EYE.
PLACES LIKE WALLER COUNTY, TEXAS… IT’S WHERE RESIDENTS RECEIVED THEIR FIRST TEMPORARY TESTING SITE FROM THE STATE JUST LAST WEEK…
A COMMUNITY OF 50-THOUSAND PEOPLE WHO RECEIVED ONLY 120 TESTS.
