JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL: Etowah High School sophomore Andrew Messina was killed by police after he barricaded himself in his Cherokee County, Ga., home during a police standoff. The teen had threatened to kill his mother with a .357 Magnum revolver, according to media reports. She called 911 because she feared for her life, the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office said.

The deputies were able to remove the woman from the home safely, but the teen barricaded himself inside the home, which is located in the Eagle Watch subdivision.  The teen was seen pouring alcohol on the curtains and deputies heard him threaten to burn the home,” Lt. Jay Baker said in a press release. The suspect was killed by a sniper after he either fired through the glass on the front door or used the gun to break the glass.

Andrew Messina was shot once in the abdomen and transported to WellStar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, where he was pronounced dead, Baker said. Where in the world did this kid get a .357 Magnum? What is happening in our world today? Andrew Messina’s friends set up a Facebook memorial page in his honor. Still doesn’t answer the question of why he threatened to kill his mother and why he had a .357 Magnum revolver in his possession.

UPDATE:  The parents of the teen maintain he was suicidal and upset over a bad grade. They believe the police overacted.

New Orleans Teen Christine Marcelin Killed Days After Boyfriend Brandon Adams Killed in Desire

New Orleans Teen Christine Marcelin Killed Days After Boyfriend Brandon Adams Killed in Desire (NOLA)

The body of 15 year old Christine Marcelin was found just days after her boyfriend, Brandon Adams, 15, was killed in a double shooting Friday night in the Desire area of New Orleans. Both teenagers were eighth grade students at KIPP Believe College Prep.

Adams’ mother, Shawan Adams, said her son walked to Sampson Park, near the corner of Louisa and Benefit streets, on Friday to play basketball and meet Marcelin. Despite the tight reins she said she typically keeps on her children, Shawan Adams agreed to her son’s outing, but she stressed that he couldn’t stay long.

A few hours later, she sent his older brother Eric Adams, 17, to the park. They left Marcelin, who watched them walk away and then went to a friend’s or a cousin’s house in the Desire area, Shawan Adams said.

After a stop for candy, the two brothers were walking home along Higgins Boulevard when they were attacked near Montegut Street by what some news reports said were two masked gunmen on foot.

[…]

Marcelin said some other young men at Sampson Park had been bullying Brandon, saying that because he wasn’t from around there, he wasn’t welcome to play sports in what they perceived as “their park and their center.” He simply ignored them, Marcelin had said. But she feared that the run-in might have cost Adams his life. Source

It is not clear what police believe the motive was for the murder of Christine Marcelin. It seems to me that she was deliberately targeted for whatever reason. Maybe she knew too much about what was going on with her boyfriend, if anything. This wasn’t a random act.

If you have any information about the murders of Christine Marcelin and Brandon Adams, please contact the New Orleans Police. There are armed thugs walking around in your neighborhoods. How many more children have to die before something is done about the number of firearms on the streets and in the wrong hands?

“Barack Obama: The Story” Explores His Internal Struggles About Race, Girlfriends Genevieve Cook and Alex McNear

"Barack Obama: The Story" Explores His Internal Struggles About Race, Girlfriends Genevieve Cook and Alex McNear (Via breitbart)

I’m sure Michelle Obama won’t be too pleased to hear that her husband’s former girlfriend has just popped on the radar. Do we really need to have this “extra stuff” befuddle the issues?  Vanity Fair excerpts Barack Obama: The Story by David Maraniss:

“When Barack Obama met Genevieve Cook in 1983 at a Christmas party in New York’s East Village, it was the start of his most serious romance yet. But as the 22-year-old Columbia grad began to shape his future, he was also struggling with his identity: American or international? Black or white? Drawing on conversations with both Cook and the president, David Maraniss, in an adaptation from his new Obama biography, has the untold story of the couple’s time together.”

“He felt no attachment to Columbia or to the first jobs he landed after graduation. But it would be a misreading to say that he was tamping down his ambitions during that period. Just the opposite, in fact. If anything, his sense of destiny deepened. He was conducting an intense debate with himself over his past, pres­ent, and future, an internal struggle that he shared with only a few close friends, including his girlfriends, Alex McNear and Genevieve Cook, who kept a lasting rec­ord, one in letters, the other in her journal.”

Here’s an excerpt that will piss Michelle Obama off for sure:

“In her diary Ms Cook writes: ‘The sexual warmth is definitely there – but the rest of it has sharp edges and I’m finding it all unsettling and finding myself wanting to withdraw from it all..

‘…his warmth can be deceptive. Though he speaks sweet words and can be open and trusting, there is also that coolness – and I begin to have an inkling of some things about him that could get to me’.”

 

WTF: TX Railroad Commissioner Candidate Roland Sledge Campaign Ad Shows Man Peeing on Electric Fence

WTF:  Roland Sledge, who is running for Texas Railroad Commissioner, released campaign video saying,  “Isn’t it about time we elected political leaders that have sense enough not to pee on electric fences.” This is further proof that any idiot can run for elected office in this country. I guess after George W. Bush and Gov. Rick Perry, I can only say some crazy stuff comes out of Texas.

George Zimmerman Called Racist Over 2005 Anti-Mexican MySpace Rant

George Zimmerman, who is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, is being called a “racist” over his anti-Mexican MySpace rant. The long abandoned profile includes disparaging comments about Mexicans and Zimmerman’s ex-fiance, though it did show that Zimmerman had black friends. Um, big deal about the black friends. Doesn’t mean he couldn’t have racially profiled Trayvon Martin. Here’s an excerpt from the Daily Mail article:

The Miami Herald revealed the existence of the page, which his lawyer says was abandoned seven years ago.

‘I dont miss driving around scared to hit mexicans walkin on the side of the street, soft a** wanna be thugs messin with peoples cars when they aint around (what are you provin, that you can dent a car when no ones watchin),’ he writes. ‘Workin 96 hours to get a decent pay check, gettin knifes pulled on you by every mexican you run into!’

Of course, conservative windbag Michelle Malkin’s new website “Twitchy” doesn’t seen anything wrong with people coming out and calling him a racist. I wonder how would she feel if a Filipino teen was gunned down in the street by a black neighborhood watch captain? They had no qualms about the right wing media trying to paint Trayvon Martin as a thug.

Here’s a sampling from Twitter:

UPDATED: Thomas Hayes Kills Wife Sherrelle Hayes, Self in Apparent Murder-Suicide in No. Bellmore NY Home

UPDATED: Thomas Hayes Kills Wife Sherrelle Hayes, Self in Apparent Murder-Suicide in No. Bellmore NY Home (Facebook)

NO. BELLMORE MURDER-SUICIDE:  Thomas Hayes killed his wife Sherrelle Hayes in their North Bellmore, NY, home and then himself in an apparent murder-suicide Tuesday afternoon. He later died at a local hospital. The couple’s four children found their mother, Sherelle Hayes dead, while paramedics discovered their father and transported him to the hospital where he died. The murder-suicide was initiated by Thomas Hayes. Now four children are left without a mother and a father.

When a 13-year old girl returned to her home on 1329 Smith Avenue in North Bellmore after school, she talked to her father through the front door. Her father then asked her to pick up her three siblings, ages 7, 9 and 10 . When the four kids returned home at around 3:30, the front door was locked. The children entered through the side door, and found their mother dead on the kitchen floor. Source

UPDATE#1 (05/02/12):   Thomas Hayes stabbed his wife, Sherrelle Hayes, and then hanged himself.  Thomas Hayes attorney, Marc Gunn, told the New York Post that he had been depressed since being arrested last year for stealing ‘old prison uniforms and old telephones” he thought was abandoned while he worked as a union fire inspector at an old federal building in lower Manhattan. He later sold the items on eBay for about  $25,000, the newspaper reports. His sentencing was set for May 22 and Gunn said  “he was probably going to get probation. It wasn’t a big deal.’’ 

UPDATE#2 (05/02/12):  Det. Sgt. Gregg Lesmeister said at a news conference Wednesday that “there was certainly some marital discord. There’s absolutely some indication of problems” between the couple.  Though they would not specify what those problems were, there was some speculation that Sherrelle Hayes was planning to leave her husband, Thomas Hayes. Police also confirmed that neighbors had heard arguing on Tuesday morning, but they don’t have an accurate timeline as to what time Thomas Hayes attacked and stabbed his wife. Multiple weapons were found in the home.

GOP Attacks on Obama for Politicizing Osama Bin Laden Assassination Only Helps Him, Remember 9/11?

GOP ATTACKS ON OBAMA:  I am amazed at how quickly Republicans forgot how the Bush 2004 reelection campaign blanketed the airwaves with the events of 9/11, so much so that people were literally hoodwinked into voting for George W. Bush. They saw nothing wrong with that tactic but now that President Obama is milking the Osama bin Laden assassination, they are screaming “off with his head.” Politics is just a dirty game and voters like you and I are used as pawns.

While I found the campaign video playing up the Osama bin Laden assassination somewhat distasteful, it is nonetheless politics and if the shoe were on the other foot, the Republicans would do the same as they did in 2004. GOP attacks on Obama will only help him at the polls and continue to prove that Mitt Romney is like a deer caught between two headlights on foreign policy. A little like his dog Seamus on the top of the family station wagon with all that wind smacking him in the face.

Mark McKinnon: “Just as it would have been absurd for the Bush campaign not to mention 9/11 in our 2004 reelection launch. In fact, all we did in our ads was say we faced some unexpected challenges and showed some images of 9/11. And we were crucified by the Democrats… And now, how dare Obama exploit OBL for political purposes, say Republicans today.”

“When Democrats went crazy about our 9/11 ad in 2004, all they did was bring more attention to the message we were trying to communicate. Which is precisely the trap Republicans are falling into today.”
