Two 14-year-old boys who allegedly shot dead a young mother in an argument over a packet of cigarettes posted pictures of themselves brandishing guns on Facebook hours after the crime. Police are still searching for Todavia Cleckley and Marcus Velasquez, who will be tried as adults for the murder in Beaver Hills, Pennsylvania on Saturday afternoon. A third boy, 13-year-old Kyle Goosby, is already in custody and has been charged with conspiracy to commit homicide.
Comments: Animals. Interesting that we continue to get complete coverage of the destruction of our once-great nation from the Daily Mail. Silence from the American media--co-conspirators in the assault on our culture.
single teen mother, lots of piercings, boyfriend, lots of piercings, apparently bought cigarettes at the store. Two young black thugs, already with lots of criminal history, shoot because the single mother and her boyfriend wouldn´t give up the cigarettes. We are a society gone mad. And I would bet that every one of the partipants was a welfare recipient...
Should you wish to get a detailed look into the Thuglife culture this blog can fill you in. http://chasthuglife.blogspot.com/
This is everywhere. These children have no responsible adults in their lives, and indeed, many of them already have their own spawn that are being indoctrinated into the life. We are paying for this and supporting it. There are not enough prisons, and even when there they continue their thugging on smuggled cell phones, plotting their further deeds when they emerge.
the political wizzards know spending millions on ads regarding their candidates is a huge influencial tool to get votes.
However, films showing horrific material dealing with knives, ropes, poisions, stranglings, pushing ,shovng and yes, guns are believed to have no impact on youth.
These boys probably have no idea that their actions have huge consequences all the way a round. Death is permanent - not like in the movies, and their actions will change their standing in the world for the rest of their life. No replays, no editing, no second chance.
Producers of such so called entertainment need to be more responsible.
Stop the ideas for changing the situation. It´s over with. This is the way it´s going to be. Carry a gun everywhere you go. And a knife; a utility knife. An inch deep cut is as effective as a 6-inch deep cut. And pepper spray. The cop quality.Not the cutesy stuff from the mall. You´ll be OK, and phooey with everybody else.
#17 a death penalty in PA is essentially nothing but three hots and a cot for life. Look at that cop killer, whose name I refuse to remember, who has been on death row for what, 20 years? And with some of the Hollywood slime chiming in on his behalf every time the State tries to set a departure date for the perp.
#14 is on to something here. The Hollywood liberals try to tell us that movies, TV, etc. don´t foster violence. Really? Then why do companies pay billions to advertise if they don´t think it influences people to do things (buy their product).
These urban city ´yutes´ have no idea what real death is. They have never seen a pig slaughtered and dressed or even seen a chicken get it´s neck wrung. They get their information from video games and violent movies. In the some of the games you can get extra ´lives´ so you can keep shooting. Nobody is really dead.
I don´t think that this affects most young people with a stable home life but it certainly affects the children of the ghetto with their horrible culture and low IQ´s.
ATLANTA, Georgia -- What seemed like a pipe dream in mid-November is now a reality. Only a year after total collapse, Auburn is heading to Pasadena to take on Florida State in the BCS national championship game. Three hours after No. 3 Auburn finished beating No. 5 Missouri in the SEC Championship and started stumping to be chosen over an undefeated Ohio State team, Michigan State erased any debate by beating the Buckeyes 34-24 in the Big Ten championship game in Indianapolis.
RALEIGH — Most of North Carolina’s congressional staffers — the men and women who work for the state’s two U.S. senators and 13 members of the U.S. House of Representatives — will be entering the District of Columbia’s health care exchange once the Affordable Care Act takes effect in January. One notable exception: the office of 1st District Rep. G.K. Butterfield. “The consensus amongst my team was to keep the same employer-sponsored coverage every other employee receives,” Butterfield said in a statement.
An Alabama fan was shot dead after a fight outside a football-watching party shortly after the Crimson Tide lost in a stunning upset to the Auburn Tigers Saturday. Michelle Shepherd was attacked by fellow fans of the University of Alabama after she commented that she didn´t care that much that the team had lost, her sister says. Saturday's 34-28 loss to in-state rivals the Auburn Tigers in a remarkable last-second touchdown means Alabama lost its No. 1 ranking and, likely, its chance to play for a third-consecutive national championship. Ms Shepherd, a mother of three and a career social worker
Fewer than half the students in North Carolina and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools have the reading and math skills they need to be on track for college and skilled jobs, based on results of new state exams released Thursday. Students took the tests last school year, as North Carolina moved toward tougher national academic standards designed to give a more honest measure of skills.
Unbelievable surveillance video captured flash mobs dashing into store after store and running out with armloads and sometimes entire racks of sporting goods. It has happened at three different Sports Authority stores in the Chicago area. This past Monday in Burbank at just before 1 p.m., five individuals entered a Sports Authority and soon after they were off. Video shows them running out the door with rack after rack of apparel and an employee giving chase.
The 56-year-old man fatally shot at a Jackson motel Sunday has been identified as bass angler James "Jimmy" Johnson, according to a statement from Bassmaster. Johnson was in Jackson to compete at the Bassmaster Central Open on Ross Barnett Reservoir scheduled to begin Oct. 17. (snip) Jackson police are looking for a black male suspect that appeared on security camera footage.
A Mecklenburg County commissioner is under fire for making statements with racial overtones that have some people calling for removal – or at least a reprimand. (snip) It’s Kim Ratliff, the board’s Democratic vice chairwoman, who told WBTV that she’d prefer commissioners not choose a “white male” to be the next county manager. In the first story, aired Friday, Ratliff, who is black, said the county needs a manager who is “a nonwhite male who can have good working relations with all people.”
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - A local church has elected to stop performing marriage ceremonies for straight couples until same-sex marriage is legalized. (snip) “Because the United Methodist Church prohibits its pastors from conducting same-sex weddings, excluding gay and lesbian couples from the holy sacrament of marriage, the Leadership Council has asked the pastor to refrain from conducting wedding ceremonies in our sanctuary for straight couples, until the denomination lifts its ban for same-sex couples.”
LONDON– Rapper Kanye West launched into a mid-concert rant against a range of people that included corporate executives, Justin Timberlake and one of his most famous public critics – President Barack Obama. In a performance at London’s Hammersmith Apollo on Saturday, the Chicago-born rapper at one point said: “I don’t give a f–k what the president’s got to say,” to an ecstatic London audience.
Bank of America has reportedly frozen the account of gun manufacturer American Spirit Arms, according to its owner, Joe Sirochman. In a Facebook post dated December 29, Sirochman wrote the following: “My name is Joe Sirochman owner of American Spirit Arms...our Web site orders have jumped 500 percent causing our Web site e-commerce processing larger deposits to Bank of America. So they decided to hold the deposits for further review. “After countless hours on the phone with Bank of America, I finally got a manager in the right department that told me the reason that the deposits were on hold
RALEIGH It took less than 10 minutes Saturday for Republican Pat McCrory to complete a journey he’d started years ago, from Charlotte City Hall to North Carolina’s governor’s mansion. With his left hand on two bibles, McCrory took the oath of office as the state’s 74th governor in a ceremony long on pomp but short in duration.
RALEIGH -- Republican Pat McCrory became North Carolina’s 74th governor Saturday in a brief, simple ceremony that nevertheless marked a major shift in political power in the state. It took only several minutes for McCrory, a 56-year year old former Charlotte mayor and former utility executive, to take the oath of office in the old Senate Chambers in the historic Capitol. The parade, balls, inaugural address and other celebrations surrounding a new governor will occur over the next week.
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by

Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
One definition of a pathological liar is someone who lies where the truth would serve just as well. When President Obama’s uncle, Onyango Obama, was arrested in 2011 for drunk driving, the truth — that Obama had stayed with his uncle years earlier for several weeks as a Harvard law student — would have served the president just fine. No potential Obama voter would have held it against him that an uncle he had stayed with two decades earlier was picked up for DUI. Yet the White House went with a lie, claiming that Obama had never met his uncle. Now that
The U.S. isn´t called "America the Beautiful" for nothing. Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country´s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty. But there are also cool, quirky attractions, like Vermont´s Ben & Jerry´s Factory and Tennessee´s Graceland, the former home of Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley. From California to New York and everywhere in between, the country is chock-full of incredible attractions that keep luring in visitors. Here are the best tourist attractions in every state.
