Angelos was 24 years old when he was sentenced in 2004 to 55 years in prison for bringing guns to marijuana deals, a sentence a federal judge was forced to impose because of mandatory minimum sentencing laws. He had no criminal record before he was convicted of selling $350 worth of marijuana to a police informant three times and prosecutors argued he was a gang member who carried a gun during two of those deals, though he was not accused of using or showing a weapon. The music producer was freed from prison in 2016. Utah Sen. Mike Lee petitioned former President Barack Obama to grant clemency to Angelos, as did the former federal judge who sentenced Angelos. Obama did not commute Angelos' sentence but the man was instead released from prison after receiving a sentence reduction in court.

Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “A riot is the language of the unheard.” In his latest book “Why Didn't We Riot?: A Black Man in Trumpland” (Other Press, $21.99), journalist Issac J. Bailey thoughtfully explores race relations in the United States. Based out of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Bailey said his family’s annual travel plans include visiting South Carolina’s state parks. “There are waterfalls and spooky, abandoned train lines and incredible nature hikes, as well as resort-like cabins, if you prefer those over the more modest accommodations most of those parks offer,” he said. “One of the top destinations was Hunting Island. That’s more of a day trip as part of a larger vacation plan if you are out of state. There (are) unspoiled wooded areas, a lighthouse and white sandy beaches all in one place. Some scenes from ‘Forrest Gump’ were shot there.”
