Calvin Evans on Derrick Rose!

If you haven't had a chance to check out the weekly web series #SunnyWithAChanceOfFunny, produced by stand up comedian and actor, Calvin Evans, it's highly suggested that you do. In this episode, Evans talks about the rape allegations & final verdict given to Derrick Rose as well as discussing the consensual sex issue. He also covers that fucking awkward moment of Rose, the jurors and the judge having a warm candid moment... WTF? It makes you want to question the professionalism of the case as a whole.
