Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of singers Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, was found unresponsive today in a home in Roswell, Georgia, police say.

Brown’s husband, Nick Gordon, and a friend found her in a tub in the home in the Ellard subdivision and started CPR, police said.

When Roswell police officers arrived at 10:25 a.m., she was still unresponsive and they took over life-saving measures until rescue personnel arrived.

This incident comes less than two weeks before the third anniversary of Whitney Houston’s death. Whitney Houston, Bobbi Kristina Brown’s mother, was found unresponsive in a tub and died nearly three years ago in California.

Whitney Houston’s daughter found unresponsive in a tub.

Brown “was not breathing” when her husband and a friend found her around 10:25 a.m. at a home in a Roswell subdivision, police spokeswoman Lisa Holland said.

“They called 911, started CPR on her, and police arrived first,” the spokeswoman added. “We took over the lifesaving measures until the fire/rescue and an ambulance arrived.”

Brown was then transported to Roswell’s North Fulton Hospital, where she was breathing, according to Holland.

UPDATE I: CNN – Police Say, Whitney Houston’s daughter ‘still alive and breathing’ in hospital.

UPDATE II: Whitney Houston’s Daughter Placed in Medically Induced Coma.

Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, was reportedly placed in a medically induced coma due to swelling of the brain after being found unconscious in a bathtub in her home in Roswell, Ga. on Saturday morning.

The 21-year-old was rushed to the hospital, where doctors stabilized her breathing. She was in the intensive care unit at North Fulton Hospital before being induced.

UPDATE III: Family say her condition ‘doesn’t look good’ and describe how she’s been ‘fighting demons’.

The odds of recovery look grim for Bobbi Kristina Brown, one day after the daughter of music legends Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown was found unconscious face down in a bathtub by her husband.

The 21-year-old was last reported in stable condition in a medical induced coma, but sources close to the family told TMZ that her brain function has ‘significantly diminished’.

‘It doesn’t look good,’ another source told Entertainment Tonight.

That same source revealed to the TV show that it’s ‘no coincidence’ that Bobbi Kristina was found in such tragically similar circumstances as her mother, who was died in a bathtub from an ‘accidental’ drug overdose almost exactly three years ago. Since then Bobbi Kristina’s troubles have been ‘a lot deeper than everyone can see’.

‘We don’t think Bobbi Kristina is going to pull through,’ a source told Hollywood Life.

NYC Mayor De Blasio Appears to Care More About Deaths of Rikers Island Felony Sexually Abusers than NYPD Officers

Sorry, if I don’t shed a tear or could care less … I care more about the deaths of police officers than inmates. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

35 year old Fabian Cruz, who was on suicide watch, committed suicide sometime after 4 pm New Years Eve at Rikers Island on New years Eve. Cruz was put on round the clock suicide observation because he was distraught over an imminent prison sentence. Really, maybe he should have considered the consequences prior to committing the crime. As they say, “don’t do the crime, of you can’t do the time.”  The tax payers of New York won’t have to worry about this punk doing his time. Even after being put on suicide watch, Cruz was found dead in his cell, lying face up, a bed sheet wrapped around his neck.  A jail psychiatrist recommended he be placed on suicide watch this week; however, correction officers reportedly failed to follow department policy. Law abiding citizens looks at this and say, next story. However, bleeding heart liberal NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio seems to care moer about felons than he does the men and women in blue who put these scum bags in jail. De Blasio has proposed a series of changes for Rikers Island, including added surveillance cameras, more therapeutic programs for inmates and additional training for correction officers. You have got to be kidding me?

Rikers Island

The warning was sent at 4:45 p.m. on New Year’s Eve: A Rikers Island inmate, distraught over an imminent prison sentence, was threatening to harm himself and was possibly suicidal.

According to jail policy, correction officers should immediately have put the inmate, Fabian Cruz, on round-the-clock suicide observation. That did not happen. Rather, a full 24 hours after a mental health clinician sounded the alarm, Mr. Cruz was found dead in his cell, lying face up, a bedsheet wrapped around his neck, according to jail employees and internal documents.

The death underscores the dysfunction that continues to pervade the Rikers Island jail complex even as New York City officials scramble to fix it amid intense scrutiny by the federal Justice Department, which is now suing the city, charging widespread abuse and neglect of inmates.

Mayor Bill de Blasio has proposed a series of changes, including added surveillance cameras, more therapeutic programs for inmates and additional training for correction officers, to improve conditions at Rikers. Last year, he allocated $32 million for more guards and improved mental health services.

But Mr. Cruz’s death, which was confirmed on Friday by the Correction Department, appears to have resulted from a failure to follow basic policy. The department would not comment on the circumstances surrounding the death.

But wait, why was this scumbag at Rikers’ Island in the first place, that so many people like Mayor de Blasio would be are concerned about his suicide? Cruz was a repeated felony sexual abuser of a teen girl beginning when she was 14 years of age.

About two weeks earlier, Mr. Cruz pleaded guilty to one felony count of attempted first-degree criminal sexual act. According to prosecutors, he repeatedly sexually abused his girlfriend’s daughter over a period of three years, starting when the girl was 14. Under a plea arrangement, he was to be sentenced on Jan. 12 to five years in prison, according to the Staten Island district attorney’s office. In April, he had also been sentenced to two and a half to five years in prison on separate burglary and other charges, but he was kept at Rikers until his death.

Check out the rap sheet on Cruz that Mayor de Blasio seems to be so concerned out. More than 300 misdemeanor sex charges in an unrelated case on Staten Island involving a minor and a felony sex charge against Cruz. Sorry, he needed killing. No wonder corrections officers might have turned the other way. Hell if it were me I would have given him and extra belt and shoe laces. This scum bag needed killing.

But authorities aren’t finished with Fabian Cruz just yet.

Still pending are more than 300 misdemeanor sex charges in an unrelated case on Staten Island involving a minor and a felony sex charge in Brooklyn state Supreme Court, online state court records show.

Cruz, 35, is accused of groping his girlfriend’s teenage daughter in those cases, according to court papers and sources.

Cruz was indicted in March of last year on a raft of charges stemming from several incidents.

He and his girlfriend, Kizzy Barnett, 37, were accused of attacking Ms. Barnett’s 14-year-old son inside their Van Duzer Street apartment on Feb. 9, 2013.

Ms. Barnett menaced the teen with a knife and tried to attack him with it, the indictment alleges, while Cruz violated an order of protection during the incident.

Neighbors witnessed the fight and told police what happened, spurring Cruz to tell them to keep mum, law enforcement sources said. Police arrested him for obstructing governmental administration that day, a charge to which he subsequently pleaded guilty, sources said.
