BREAKING NEWS: Dick Clark Dead at 82, Suffers Massive Heart Attack
BREAKING NEWS: Ken Lester named new judge in the Trayvon Martin murder case as Judge Jessica Recksiedler recuses herself. Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. has been on the bench for 15 years.
Kenneth Lester Sr. is a World War II veteran. He has a great deal of experience with criminal trials, including high profile cases such as Michael Reynolds for the stabbing deaths of a Geneva couple and their 11 year old daughter in 1998; and he sentenced ax murderer John Michael Buzia to death in the slaying of a 71-year-old Oviedo man.
He has a reputation of getting things done quickly. Well, experience on the bench is what’s needed in the George Zimmerman murder case. There’s a big difference between being on the bench for 15 years vs. 16 months, as was the case with Judge Jessica Recksiedler.
SHOCK: The burned bodies of Winter Park High School students Nicholas Presha and Jeremy Stewart were found Wednesday near the Cady Way Trail in Winter Park, Fla. The bodies of the teens, ages 16 and 18, were found by bicyclists on the trail shortly after they were reported missing.
Presha is a son of retired Orange County sheriff’s Capt. Bernie Presha, who now works as an investigator for the Orange-Osceola State Attorney’s Office. Detectives had just notified Presha that his son’s body had been identified when he was contacted by the Orlando Sentinel today.
“This morning the Presha family was informed that their 16-year-old son is one of two victims of a gruesome, senseless and shocking murder,” the State Attorney’s Office said in a statement. “The Presha family’s grief and sorrow is this agency’s primary concern at this point.” Source
There is a sick and despicable undercurrent permeating this country. Not a day goes by when we don’t hear of a gruesome murder on the news. Nicholas Presha and Jeremy Stewart had their whole lives ahead of them, much like Kala Golden Schuchardt who was gunned down by nurse Verna Diann McClain outside a pediatric office in Texas so that she could kidnap her three-day old son, Keegan Schuchardt. The teens were arrested in January on a grand auto theft charge and had entered a teen court program, which is a form of pre-trial diversion.
HINTERLAND GAZETTE BREAKING NEWS: The FCC has asked the Supreme Court to hear the Janet Jackson 2004 Super Bowl performance indecency case.
Acura Superbowl commercial, that starred Jerry Seinfeld and Jay Leno, requested light-skinned, not dark-skinned blacks to apply. According to TMZ, the role of the black car dealer would be played by a “nice looking, friendly, not too dark” African American. SMH. How many blacks drive an Acura?
Here we go again, U.S. soldiers caught behaving badly in Afghanistan. According to the LA Times, “an American soldier says he released the photos to the newspaper to draw attention to the safety risk of a breakdown in leadership and discipline.” The Army has since launched an investigation into the matter.
LA Times: The 82nd Airborne Division soldiers arrived at the police station in Afghanistan’s Zabol province in February 2010. They inspected the body parts. Then the mission turned macabre: The paratroopers posed for photos next to Afghan police, grinning while some held — and others squatted beside — the corpse’s severed legs.
CNN Poll: Nearly three-quarters of Americans view First Lady Michelle Obama favorably, while 41 percent view Ann Romney favorably, with 20 percent viewing her unfavorably. Twenty-two percent said they viewed Michelle Obama unfavorably, while seven percent had no opinion.
DRUDGE REPORT GOES AFTER PRESIDENT OBAMA FOR EATING DOG MEAT: The Drudge Report is leading this morning with a caption that as a boy, President Obama ate dog meat. Why is this so newsworthy? It wasn’t a secret because he wrote it in his best-selling memoir, “Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance,” in which he recalls being fed dog meat as a young boy in Indonesia by his stepfather Lolo Soetoro. Um, if I’m not mistaken, there are some cultures that also feast on cats, so what’s the point? Oh, wait, I guess they are trying to shut down any attacks from the Obama camp against Mitt Romney transporting his dog in a crate on top of his car.
Here’s an excerpt from the Daily Caller:
“With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chill peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy),” the president wrote. “Like many Indonesians, Lolo followed a brand of Islam that could make room for the remnants of more ancient animist and Hindu faiths. He explained that a man took on the powers of whatever he ate: One day soon, he promised, he would bring home a piece of tiger meat for us to share.” After his mother married Soetoro, Obama lived in Indonesia from 1967 until 1971, from roughly the age of 6 through 10.
I guess it’s lost on the right wing that our “friends” in China regularly feast on dog meat. SMH. It’s pretty repulsive to me, but he didn’t just go into a butcher shop and pick some up himself. It was given to him as a child.
A capital murder charge was filed against Verna Deann McClain for the death of Kala Golden Schuchardt, whose baby Keegan Schuchardt, was kidnapped Tuesday evening outside the Northwoods Pediatric Center. Police said Verna Deann McClain, who is black, confessed to shooting Golden. This is sick and barbaric on so many levels. Kala Golden Schuchardt was shot multiple times and then ran over by Verna Deann McClain, after she took three-day-old son to the pediatrician for a routine checkup. McClain, a licensed vocational nurse, had reportedly told her sister, Corina Jackson, that she was adopting a baby, according to the Montgomery Police Reporter. In other words, she targeted Kala Golden Schuchardt just for that reason, to snatch her baby by any means necessary.
“My baby, my baby!” she screamed as Keegan Schuchardt was grabbed in his car seat in a pickup by a woman who had jumped from a Lexus sedan parked beside her. Authorities said the woman shot Schuchardt several times in the chest before speeding off with another person, identified only as an adult male who was sitting in the passenger side of the sedan. Schuchardt later died of her wounds at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Hospital.
Overnight officials who diverted all their attention to locating Keegan shifted gears and sought to bring charges against the suspect. When SWAT ran on the Fawnridge Apartments where as they were there McClain returned to the apartments and asked to speak to detectives. She then told detectives she shot Golden and took the baby to her apartment on Sugar Pine in Harris County. The baby was then recovered from the suspects home on Sugar Pine Circle just off FM 1960 in the Ponderosa area. Source: Houston Chronicle
Police investigators said Verna Deann McClain, 30, and a mother of three (ages 16, 10 and 6), called her sister after the shooting and the kidnapping to say she now had the child and would need to complete the adoption process. She has no prior criminal record and is being held in the Montgomery County Jail without bond. Stay tuned for updates. We will put her picture up as soon as it’s available.
