Off-Duty Sheriff’s Deputy Jonathan Agee Goes on Bloody Rampage in Roanoke VA, Killing Ex-Wife Jennifer Agee & Wounding a State Trooper

SHOCK: Off-duty Franklin County sheriff’s deputy Jonathan Agee went on a shooting rampage, killing his ex-wife, Jennifer Agee, and wounding a state trooper before he was wounded in Roanoke, VA. According to WSLS 10, Roanoke City Police said the shootings began around 11:30 a.m. and investigators believe that Agee, 32, of Boones Mill, followed a truck being driven by his ex-wife, into a Sheetz convenience store.

Chief Perkins said a witness told officers that Deputy Agee stepped out of his marked Franklin County patrol cruiser, took out a rifle, and fired multiple shots at Jennifer Agee, while she was outside of her pick-up truck.

After he drove away from the scene, police issued an alert with information about his vehicle and an advisory to be on the lookout for him. Shortly thereafter, Sgt. Matt Brannock spotted a car fitting the description and followed it, a police spokesman said. As Brannock pulled up beside Agee on the highway exit ramp, Agee began firing at the officer, hitting him and causing him to take cover. Source

Sick, sick, sick. How is Deputy Agee any different from a hardened criminal roaming the streets looking for trouble?

Egyptian Businessman Mahmoud Abdel-Salam Omar Follows in Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s Footsteps, Sexually Assaults Maid at St. Pierre Motel

Egyptian businessman Mahmoud Abdel-Salam Omar charged with sexual abuse, unlawful imprisonment, among other charges for groping maid at The Pierre Hotel in NYC, similar to Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s alleged sexual assault on African maid at Sofitel Hotel.

Egyptian businessman Mahmoud Abdel-Salam Omar, 74, followed in the footsteps of disgraced International Monetary Fund ex-chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn after he sexually assaulted a maid at another swanky hotel — The Pierre. According to the NY Daily News, he is accused of locking a 44 year old maid inside his room, grabbing her breasts, forcibly kissing her and rubbing up against her. The incident occurred Sunday, but was not reported to the police until Monday. Why was that? In any case, Omar was charged with sexual abuse, unlawful imprisonment, among other charges.

Wow, this is similar to Dominique Strauss-Kahn alleged sexual assault on an African maid at the swanky Sofitel Hotel. He is now out on bail, pending a trial. Omar is the head of El-Mex Salines Co., a solar salt producer in Egypt. He previously served as chairman of the Bank of Alexandria. What is it with powerful men and sex?

BREAKING: Bernice King, Daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Departs New Birth Missionary Baptist Church

URGENT: Bernice King, daughter of the late civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., departs New Birth Missionary Baptist Church.

Bernice King, daughter of civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., led her last altar call at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church Sunday at the 11 a.m. service, where she served as an elder. It is not immediately clear if her departure has anything to do with the recent multi-million settlement paid out to the four men who accused Bishop Eddie L. Long of sexual coercion. The names of the men are Spencer LeGrande, Maurice Robinson, Anthony Flagg and Jamal Parris. The lawsuits have also been dismissed. It is rather interesting that King has left the church. Bishop Eddie L. Long is toxic and I wouldn’t want to be associated with him as another pastor. Black Media Scoop is reporting that King gave Long her resignation papers during the 11 a.m. service and was reportedly upset about the settlement. Why haven’t the members of the church called for Eddie L. Long to step down and stop dragging down the name of the church? His arrogance in the face of guilt is stunning and bare-faced.

It’s time for Eddie L. Long to stop down from senior leadership position at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church. Time to force him out!!!!

UPDATE#1: Bernice King will talk about her decision to leave New Birth and disclose what her plans are for the future on Rhodell Lewis’ radio show on Praise 102.5 Tuesday, and on mypraiseatl.com between 4 and 5:30 p.m., according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. The church is spinning this story, saying she left with Long’s blessings and had been planning this move for quite some time. How ironic that she decided to jump ship right after the settlement was made public and the lawsuits dismissed. Sorry, but this story doesn’t pass the smell test.

UPDATE#2: I caught the end of Bernice King’s interview on Rhodell Lewis’ show. She said she left on good terms with Bishop Long and thanked them for the eight years and eight months she served the ministry. She said she has left to launch her own ministry, which will include a church. She said she is seeking “true disciples” for the body of Christ. She also said her mandate from God is to “raise up kings for the Kingdom.” Ms. King also plugged her Facebook fan page. Sorry, but I’m not convinced this is the real reason why she left. Seems to me Ms. King needs to stop beating around the bush and admit Eddie L. Long gave her some hush money to keep the real reason for her departure under wraps. Do we really need another ministry that has even the most subtle connections to Bishop Eddie L. Long?

According to WSB-TV, when asked about the timing of her decision to leave, since it came mere days after the settlement and dismissal of sexual misconduct lawsuits against Long, King said she provided Long with a timetable and that May 29 was the date she decided upon. Right. One thing I hope will come out of Bernice King’s departure is that it will split the church leadership and others will jump ship.

Last Sunday’s service at New Birth was a ghost town:

Nicholas Williams Charged with Child Cruelty for Allegedly Beating 2 Year Old Daughter to Death Because she Soiled Her Diapers

Nicholas Williams charged with child cruelty for allegedly spanking his two year old daughter so hard she died because she soiled her diapers.

Some people just don’t deserve to have children. Nicholas Williams was arrested last week after he allegedly spanked his two year old daughter so hard that she died. Why? Because she soiled her diapers. They should feed him some of his feces too while he’s behind bars and beat him if he refuses to eat it.

According to the arrest affidavit, police and paramedics responded to a 911 call made by a woman saying that the child was not breathing at a residence in Austin, Texas, on May 23. When police arrived, they found Williams holding his unresponsive daughter. The officer began performing CPR on the child until paramedics arrived. But an hour later, after being taken to the hospital, she was pronounced dead.

Williams told police that he lightly spanked the girl with a belt because he caught her eating poop. He said her lips were already purple when he caught her eating the poop and believed this was because she was crying since she knew she would be in trouble. He said that he then put her down for a nap. When he checked on her later, he noticed there was blood and vomit on the bed where the girl was lying. He also said the girl was unresponsive and did not appear to be breathing. Source: MyFoxAustin

This is so reprehensible. The child had bruises all over her body. Why was Nicholas Williams only charged with injury to a child, which is a first degree felony, and not murder.

Bronx Mother Claudia Millan Fatally Shot in Front of Her Young Son, Jahmere, as they Walked Home from Store

Bronx mother of four, Claudia Millan, fatally shot in face as she walked home from Bronx store clutching hand of Jahmere, her two year old toddler, at about 11 p.m. Monday night.

Claudia Millan, 28, was fatally shot in front of her youngest child, as she returned to her East Tremont Avenue apartment in the Bronx about 11 p.m. Monday night, the NYPD said. She was shot in the face and was still holding her two year old son’s hand, according to media reports.

Millan was rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital, but couldn’t be saved. Police haven’t made an arrest. Neighbor Edith Rivera – who was watching Millan’s three other children – heard the shot and ran out to find her friend lying on the pavement next to her toddler son Jahmere. “She was holding his hand,” said Edith Rivera, 57. “She was a good mother. She’s about her kids.” Millan leaves behind an 11-year-old son, who is blind, an 8-year-old daughter, a 7-year-old son and the 2-year-old, Rivera said. Source

There’s a killer roaming the streets of the Bronx. If you have any information, please do not hesitate to contact the NYPD. There is no excuse for killing this woman. None.

Conservative Writer Ben Shapiro Says "Sesame Street" a Vehicle for Spreading Left-Wing Propaganda

Conservative writer and columnist Ben Shapiro says in new book “Primetime Propaganda,” “Sesame Street,” “Friends” & “MASH” are vehicles for spreading left-wing propaganda.

Conservative writer and columnist Ben Shapiro believes “Sesame Street” is a vehicle for spreading left-wing propaganda. Shapiro made this revelation in his new book “Primetime Propaganda,” and also levels the same accusation against shows such as “Friends,” “MASH” and “Happy Days.” You’re kidding me right? Someone actually published this garbage? According to the Daily Mail, he reached these conclusions after interviewing industry insiders, some of whom admitted to using their shows to spread secret political messages. Gee, I wonder if the right-wing can ever be accused of such a thing?

Shapiro, 27, also spoke to one of Sesame Street’s founders, who told him that he used the programme, in the wake of 9/11, to highlight how there were peaceful alternatives to war. This revelation may surprise some, but the show – which has featured guest stars such as Katy Perry, Ricky Gervais and Michelle Obama – was criticised for having an anti-right agenda in 2009 when it mockingly referred to America’s Fox News channel as ‘Pox News’.

Sesame Street is broadcast in 120 countries, has won 118 Emmy Awards and can boast that around 95 per cent of Americans have watched it by the time they’re three years old. According to Shapiro, ‘television isn’t just about entertainment – it’s an attempt to convince Americans that the social, economic, and foreign policy shaped by leftism is morally righteous.’ Source

So much for letting kids be kids and watch “Sesame Street” on their own terms. Let’s see, didn’t Republican former First Lady Laura Bush appear on Sesame Street? Whose agenda was she pushing? Better yet, Patti LaBelle appeared on the children’s show as well, whose agenda was she pushing when she sang about the alphabet? Ben Shapiro should have an epiphany about something that really matters, like how to break this recession and stem the high unemployment rates in the U.S.

Detroit & Flint Top List of 10 Most Dangerous Cities in U.S. Where Violence Linked with Poverty

24/7 Wall Street review finds 2010 FBI crime data shows correlation between violent crimes and poverty rates, with Detroit & Flint topping the list of 10 most violent cities in U.S.

The FBI recently released a statement saying violent crime is down in many cities across the U.S., but the Police Executive Research Forum begs to differ. The group polled 233 local law enforcement agencies in 2009 and found that the link between poverty and crime was inextricable, according to MSNBC. Add the recession from which are a slowly recovering to the mix and it makes matters worse.

A 24/7 Wall St. review of 2010 FBI crime data shows violent crime rose in several of the largest and poorest cities in the U.S., particularly those which have been in decline for some time. Even when crime rates dropped, older urban areas still had more violent crime than other cities. Philadelphia, Pa., Cleveland, Ohio, Buffalo, N.Y., and Hartford, Conn., finished high on the FBI’s list but failed to make the final 24/7 Wall St. ranking.

Poverty will always be a part of our society on some level.That’s just the way it is, but as a country, we have to make a concerted effort to provide more opportunities to the residents in the inner cities who face the highest unemployment rates due to a lack of training. There is a serious societal breakdown that is evident in all the cities in the Top 10 list. Politicians have failed their constituents in these poorer communities and some of the people have failed themselves as well. Whatever happened to pulling yourself up by the bootstrap? I know it’s bigger than personal responsibility, but that plays a small role as well.

British Formula One Star Lewis Hamilton Apologizes After Accusing Monaco Grand Prix Officials of Racism

British Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton forced to issue retraction & apologize for accusing Monaco Grand Prix officials of racism over two penalties, says it was a “bit of a joke, which wasn’t funny at the time.”

Lewis Hamilton, British Formula One Driver (LewisHamilton.com)

Did British Formula One star Lewis Hamilton pull the race card when he went off on Monaco Grand Prix officials Saturday after he was given two penalties over two incidents? According to the Daily Mail, after he was called to see the stewards regarding the second penalty he said: “It’s an absolute fricking joke. I’ve been to see the stewards five times out of six this season. Maybe it’s because I’m black. That’s what Ali G says. I don’t know.”

However, it wasn’t long before Hamilton was forced into a humiliating retraction and apology after F1’s governing body, the FIA, suggested he could be charged with bringing the sport into disrepute. It led to a further meeting with race stewards where the 26-year-old tried to repair the damage.

He added afterwards: ‘What I said was a bit of a joke, which wasn’t funny at the time.
‘I made them [the stewards] aware that when emotions are high, and it’s very intense at the end of those kind of races, you don’t always say the right thing, and the joke didn’t come at the most appropriate time.’ Source

Why let your ego get in the way of a good race? This guy isn’t even a winner many times over and his head is getting so big. He should be embarrassed for being called out for pulling the race card. You can’t interject race in every dogfight, especially if racism was never involved.
