Lt.Col. Carl L. Adams, Sr. Retired, died Thursday morning, Veterans Day. It is reported that Adams attended a Masonic Lodge eeting Wednesday night and his house went up in flames early the next morning. Adams body was found about two hours after the firefighters arrived. The 63-year-old was a retired lieutenant colonel, a teacher and past District Deputy Grand Master of the Masonic Lodge. Memorial Service will be Saturday at 10 a.m., St. Paul AME. The line was long as hundreds, including some retired school teachers, waited to receive food from Second Harvest and True Light of God in Christ Church Saturday, almost two weeks since mid-term election that changed the dominant party in the House of Representatives, making the party of no more stronger. So, congress went back to work and on their fourth day, rejected a bill that would have extended unemployment benefits for another three months. The vote was 258 to 154, not the two-third needed to fasttrack procedures. Therefore, four million Americans are set to lose their benefits when they expire November 30. The Republicans say they want their country back, claiming extending unemployment benefits would increase the deficit. In the meantime, they are committing to extending tax cuts to the very wealthy while cutting what they see as government support programs, for the unemployed and dont forget those whose benefits have already run to 99 weeks and the 17 to 25 percent unemployed young African Americans and Hispanics over the past decade, including the number of homeless Americans and the millions without healthcare. With this rejection right before Thanksgiving and Christmas, who can be blamed? In Duval County, five precincts had over 70 percent voter turnout on November 2nd. No -Continued on Page A-7 A1 C M Y K No Unemployment Extension Sheriff Doesnt Agree with Ruling Sheriff John Rutherford did not wish a citizens review board when it came to incidents involving his office but he was not against citizens and reporters being able to observe the hearings. However, the Fraternal Order of Police, representing local officers, sued the city of Jacksonville, claiming the hearings should be confidential. A circuit judge ruled in favor of the city but the organization then appealed the ruling. The First District Court of Appeals overturned the ruling, agreeing with the union. Sheriff Rutherford and many of the community leaders feel this was a bad decision on the part of the appeal court and that such closed hearings would cause the community to not trust officers of the department because such would set up the possibility for them to hide or not disclose information. The Sheriff, the NAACP and others intend to fight the ruling. House Fire Takes the Life of a City Leader Jacksonville in Top Ten of U.S. Most Religious Cities Mens Health, a magazine that did a survey of communities in the United States, named 100 cities as the most religious. The magazine considered each citys per capita number of places of worship, religious organizations and the number of volunteers supporting them, as well as financial contributions. Jacksonville was in the top ten of the group, and was the only Florida city in the top ten. Colorado Springs, Colorado was number one. Jacksonville was number six.

Everyone felt that there was so much love, the marriage would last for a lifetime. However, on Wednesday, Eva placed a note on Twitter stating that even though she and Tony loved each other very much, they were getting a divorce. Tony later left the same note on Twitter. It appears that Tonys team mate, Brent Barry and wife were also in the midst of getting a divorce and that Tony and Erin were having an affair, which she denied but Tony admitted. New Fire Chief for Jacksonville Mayor John Peyton, as required, is now putting together his transition team for the next mayor. In doing so, he appointed Dan Kleman as head, who presently serves as director of Jacksonvilles Fire-Rescue Department and replaced him with Dr. Charles Moreland. Moreland will need to be confirmed by the City Council. He has been with Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department for twenty years. He has served as chairman of the departments rescue division since 2003 and will be the citys second African American Chief. Prior to Peyton, Ray Alfred served. In 2009, Chief Moreland was named EMSAdministrator of the Year by the Florida Association of County EMS. He received his bachelor from Edward Waters College. He also has a degree in nursing, a doctorate of education and a masters in public administration from Nova Southeastern University. Dr. Moreland was the first minority to serve as chief of rescue and led a command of more than 200 personnel. The Knowles Dismissed Divorce Proceedings No one is discussing why Tina and Matthew Knowles, parents of Beyonce Knowles, did not appear at the Harris County Court in Houston, Texas on Monday. They were scheduled to appear regarding finalizing their divorce which was filed by Mrs. Knowles in November 2009. The couple had been married for 29 years when it was learned, and proven through a DNA test, that Matthew Knowles had fathered a child in Los Angeles and is now paying child support. The judge dismissed the case. Leaders Serve as Principal for a Day Community and business leaders throughout Jacksonville volunteered for a day to spend at Duval County Public Schools to experience what it is like at schools today by becoming Principal for a Day. The Florida Star owner, and staff person, Daniel Evans, each spent a day a different schools Clara at Pinedale Elementary with Alicia Hinson as principal and Dan at Stonewall Jackson with Violetra Ward as principal. They were able to visit classrooms, observe teacher assessments, sat with coaches for the teachers and observed parents who visited the schools for discussion as well students who said they need attention for small medical complaints, like foot injury. What was really impressive at Pinedale, said Ms. McLaughlin, was the strong effort to work with the teachers so that they could better work with the students to help them learn reading, writing Billionaire Brothers of Much Used Products Fund Tea Party So you use Georgia-Pacific products Brawny Paper Towels, Quilted Northern toilet paper, etc. Well then, you are supporting Koch Industries, which is in almost 60 countries and has more than 70,000 employees. It is one of the largest private companies in America and markets products such as gasoline, diesel,jet fuel, etc. It operates refineries in Alaska, Minnesota and Texas. Even though the company said that The New Yorker Magazine story is not completely correct when it stated that the billionaire brothers are waging a war against Obama, it has given millions of dollars to attack the federal government, and particularly the Obama administration. The Koch brothers say they love what the Tea Party is doing because it shows how we are going to take back America, according to the article. They funded such candidates as Rubio in Florida. In 1958, Fred Koch became one of the original members of the John Birch Society.

Challenging racial prejudice in the United States in the 1950s was a daunting undertaking and continues today. While African-Americans, in the main, again bore the brunt of the backlash, no single person, group, or institution put civil rights on the national agenda, and no one person, group, or institution saw to it that it stayed on the national agenda. The changes in attitude and law that did occur, came about as the result of a shared commitment from many, many people who took risks, highlighted injustice, and press the cause for change. That commitment was not an easy one to make then and is missing on present civil and human rights agendas. Today, its easy for some to forget the historical era of the fifties and sixties and the frequent deaths of civil rights activists. This is largely due to the lack of Black History infused in school curriculums and Baby Boomers failing to tell their children and grandchildren the stories as it relates to the civil rights movement. During the civil rights movement, tens of thousands of people of all races risked not just their standing in the community, but also their lives, in the hope of building a coalition for racial equality that could not possibly be ignored. They succeeded in building coalitions, even if the highest ideals of the cause they promoted remain in some cases, unfulfilled. The Movement as it came to be known was fueled not only by courageous African-Americans, but also by college students and religious leaders of many races. These activists employed the tactics of legal challenges and civil protests including sit-ins, marches, freedom rides and other initiatives in their efforts to see that African-Americans received equal opportunity and protection in the United States. As some groups and individuals are advocating take back America, its important that the religious and civil rights communities rekindle a diverse movement that seeks to reform the criminal justice system, in the United States. Also to dismantle the influence of public, private, political, and economic interests in the prison industrial complex. Over the years, I have come to see more and more clearly the ways in which the criminal/juvenile justice and the prison system in the United States is fundamentally, bias and must be at the top of a modern day civil and human rights movement. Disparity has raised its ugly head in Congress against two senior political icons, Representatives Charles Rangel and Maxine Waters and because I care passionately about dismantling racism on all levels, we must address this modern day crisis as it continues to create hardships and fill jails and prisons and at a great lost and cost to African Americans, other minorities, and the poor.

If this is not another wake up call for economic self empowerment; what will it take now to wake-up some mis-educated, under-educated, uneducated and misguided spiritually, emotionally and mentally challenge people? Until you begin to believe in self, make sacrifices for you're children's children, embrace education as mandatory in our communities, decrease materialistic consumption and stop giving money to pimping (male and female) bishops and pastors, stop electing misguided and self serving BP's (Black Politicians) and stop looking for a hand-out, until then we will continues to be free slaves with no culture, direction or love for self, family and community. It's time to take a serious look at the African American Economic Roadmap prepared by me in 2004 for the African American community if youre serious about a collective change for the African American community. Keep in mind that Asians own their own businesses and employed their own people. Ps. I want to thank all of the religious fanatics that voted for George Bush not once but twice in the name of Jesus. You are definitely receiving your blessing with higher taxes, negro students left behind in education (Raines and Ribault situation is criminal intent), unemployment, foreclosures, medical and educational expenses, your stupidity card is in the mail. Pete Jackson, its time for the first annual 2010 Jacksonville African American Economic Summit now at your church. I hope you don't need Mr. Charles permission to have the summit. If that is the case let Mr. Charles tell you where we can have it. It does not matter to me the location but I need you at the table along with two or three more serious minded people. I know of three people I can trust without a doubt. I'm back and "sick and tired of being sick and tired," (Fannie Lou Hamer), lead, follow or get the hell out of the way. NGVVGT"VQ"VJG"GFKVQT

Web Series Festival; Best Leading ActressŽ (Monica Calhoun) in a Web Series 2010; Best Guest Actor (Billy Dee Williams) from the Indie Soap Awards 2009 and Best Dramatic WritingŽ (Cheryl L. WestŽ the 14th Annual Webby Awards. The cast includes Monica Calhoun (The Best Man) as Ocean Jackson, a single mother of two; striving to keep her family afloat while working to fulfill her own ambitions of getting her GED, going to college and opening her own business. She befriends two other single moms, Lupe (Valery Ortiz … The Ns South of NowhereŽ), a mother juggling different fathers for each of her two children while facing health concerns that will change her life, and Peggy (Janice Lynde … Letters to DadŽ), a once wealthy, and recently widowed grandmother who finds herself now broke and guardian to her only grandchild. The three women band together as they strive to triumph over the challenges of everyday life. The shows director and producer is Robert Townsend who may be best known for his films Hollywood Shuffle,Ž Meteor ManŽ and The WB Network TV sitcom The Parent Hood.Ž What compelled Townsend to create this show? He responds, The idea came from a gentleman out of D.C. named Ray Ramsey. Ray wanted to do a show about single mothers and he had a show for the web. He approached me and then I brought in a writer that I had worked with before, Cheryl L. West to write the story. She worked on a film that I directed called Holiday HeartŽ. So she wrote the script but it was Rays vision and he said three different single mothers from different ethnic backgrounds and then we discussed it. Thats how it all came together. This show runs on the Public Internet Channel www.pic.tv via the non-profit organization called A One Economy CorporationŽ in association with V-Studio and Townsend Productions. The Public Internet Channel and www.pic.tv is a different vehicle for independent producers. How does it work and how is it financed? Townsend explains, Pic.TV is financed by various non-profits in D.C like the Ford Foundation. Different people have funded it and on that site, people get a lot of information and helpful tips about life and many things.Ž There is even talk of one of the major cable networks doing a one hour special on Diary.Ž Who knows a movie could happen as well but Townsend is in Lets-See-What-HappensŽ mode on that one. Townsend has always been on the forefront of making projects happen as opposed to sitting around complaining and belly-aching about no work; particularly for Black Afrikan people. When he did Hollywood Shuffle,Ž back in the 80s, the technology to produce videos and digital films was not available like it is today. So what are the hurdles that keep potential Black Afrikan film makers from completing projects today? He ponders that one and says bluntly, There arent a lot of obstacles for young film makers to make movies and television shows and what have you because the technology is affordable now. It is much easier now for those who have the passion to make it happen! Charity: One Moma is a 501 ( C) (3) nonprofit organization based out of San Francisco that provides greatly needed medical and midwife birthing assistance in the Kirindi Village in Uganda, Africa.

Starring Denzel Washington, Chris Pine, Rosario Dawson, Kevin Dunn, Ethan Suplee, Kevin Corrigan, Lew Temple, Kevin Chapman, T.J. Miller, Jessy Schram and David Warshofsky. Directed by Tony Scott. Written by Mark Bomback. Produced by Julie Yorn, Tony Scott, Mimi Rogers, Eric McLeod and Alex Young. What starts out as a typical day for railroad engineer Frank Barnes (Washington) and his rookie conductor Will Colson (Pine) ends up in a heart stopping, high stakes, life and death drama when a freight train accidently gets away from a bungling engineer who left it running unattended while switching the track himself. The train becomes a monster coasterŽ as they label a runaway train but this one has enough chemicals on board to take out an entire town. The drama is non-stop, the tension is extremely high and the intensity will keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the entire film. This one is a must see! Moring Glory; Paramount Pictures, a Bad Robot Productions, in association with Goldcrest Pictures LTD. Starring Rachel McAdams, Harrison Ford, Diane Keaton, Patrick Wilson, Jeff Goldblum, John Pankow, Matt Malloy and Patti DArabnville. Directed by Roger Michell. Written by Aline Brosh McKenna. Produced by J.J.Abrams and Bryan Burk. This one is basically the young upstart Morning Show TV producer Becky Fuller (McAdams) vs. the old fart, veteran but somewhat washed up reporter Mike Pomeroy (Ford). They have to meld with the shows other long time hostess Colleen Peck (Keaton) to lift the shows ratings and save it from being dropped. I love Ford, McAdams and Keaton but skip this one for cable or Netflex. Hit me up at feedbackrych@sbcglobal.net or on my celebrity interview Facebook page. Study, Observe and Win!

Both Obama and boxer Floyd Mayweather appear as if they are scared to fight! Mayweather has refused to fight Manny Pacquiao and the President seems unwilling to battle with Congressional Republicans. Lord, I hope Obama didnt blow his only chance to do the things that he promised he would in his thrilling campaign speeches two years ago. When Obama won the Presidential Election, he was a Democrat, the U.S. Senate was Democratic and the House of Representatives was Democratic. The Democrats that Black people voted for were in power and could have pushed through any legislation they wanted to. But no, that was too easy to do. Obama and his team wanted to be known as consensus builders, non-partisan politicians and friendly aisle-walkers. Where has that love for political togetherness gotten Americans? Nowhere! Power never takes a step back, only in the face of more power! Democrats had power and didnt use it or were afraid to use it. Perhaps not much significant and ground breaking legislation was done in the two years of the Obama administration because of Obamas advisors and Obamas campaign contributors. Many of Obamas Democratic advisors didnt and still dont have a clue about what the people want. Our idea of a good President is not George Bush dipped in chocolate! We dont want to be forever controlled by beast bankers, stock brokers and insurance companies. We want elected officials that will fight for us! Muhammad Ali didnt get to be the greatest champion ever by singing the praises of his opponents, Ali won battles and multiple World Heavyweight Titles by swinging! Ali was a fighter. Democrats can bow down to Americas money changers all they want to but they will never raise more campaign money than Republican fundraisers. Democrats have to win their political wars on the front lines. Obama and Congressional Democrats have to take their ideas for change to the streets and convince everyday people that lowering the deficit is necessary, ending wars and conflicts are mandatory and job creation is extremely important. Lace em up Obama, the Republicans have vowed to make you a one term President. Stay or leave, whatever you do, do it for the people. There will be no CHANGE without a fight!

Mrs. Burney having done so in the past started community meetings addressing bullying and violence in schools. Her attempts are to see more students willing to tell what they're going through before there is injury or worse. "Some kids are afraid they'll get hurt worse if they report," Burney said. "We need to let them know they have a safe place and it'll be OK" (Fl Times Union May 31, 2010 Duval schools will start to track bullying complaints). The facts are: Bullying begins in elementary school, peaks in middle school, and falls off in high school. It does not disappear altogether. (The Facts About Bullying, 1997) 61.6% of students who are bullied are picked on because of their looks or speech. (U.S. News & World Report, May 7, 2001) Physical and Digital Bullying Several areas of concern are the physical aspects of bullying and the use of technology to continue the behavior that has caused suicides in past episodes at schools. The curse of technology has allowed for continuous communication between students in an environment where information is permanent and accessible by mass. Emailing, texting and social media are the tools students use to communicate and exchange information. The most notable incidents are the Hit ListsŽ addressed later in this blog. The perception and concern is that violence is increasing. In a 1993 survey of 720 school districts nationwide, 82% reported an increase in violence in their school over the past five years (Harvard School of Public Health). In a 1993 survey of students grades 6-12, 79% said that violence was caused by "stupid things like bumping into someone." Other causes of violence included: boyfriend-girlfriend disputes, outsiders, racism, and gangs (National School Safety Center). Suicides are Growing The tragic suicides in media reports has warranted alarms locally and nationally about safety in public and private schools. Nationally students as young as 15 years old have committed suicide because of bullying from physical abuse to cyber. One of the most notable is Jeffrey Johnston who took his life in 2004 after being bullied. Debbie Johnston the mother of Jeffrey stated Everybody is recognizing that bullying isn't a rite of passage, it's not a part of childhood, and it doesn't build character." As a result the Act "Jeffrey Johnston Stand Up for All Students Act" was created. The Act requires districts to adopt new anti-bullying policies and spells out that those policies must address "cyberbullying"; taunts and harassing messages delivered by computer, cell phone or other technology.On a local scale, Duval County does not have the perceived dilemma as other parts of the nation, but records are not kept so there is no hard data to support numbers. ULYSSES W. WATKINS JR., M.D. VOCAL-CORD NOODLES (SINGERS NODESŽ} GENERAL INFORMATION DEFINITION: Non-malignant overgrowths of tissue on the vocal cords. BODY PARTS INVOLVED: Larynx (voice box) SEX OR AGE MOST AFFECTED: Adults of both sexes. SIGNS & SYMPTOMS: Persistent hoarseness without pain. CAUSES : Continued overuse of the voice by singing, shouting, yelling, lecturing or other forms of talking too loudly or too much. RISK INCREASES WITH Smoking. Vocal performers or public speakers, such as professional singers, teachers, ministers or auctioneers. HOW TO PREVENT Use voice amplification, such as a microphone or megaphone, when performing or speaking. Take voice or speech lessons to learn to make your voice carry with less effort. Ask others to remind you when you get overexcited, especially in activities such as sporting events, so you can lower your voice. Dont smoke. WHAT TO EXPECT DIAGNOSTIC MEASURES Your own observation of symptoms. Medical history and physical exam by a doctor, usually an ear, nose and throat specialist. Diagnosis may include a biopsy of the node to rule out cancer. APPROPRIATE HEALTH CARE Self …care after diagnosis. Doctors treatment. Surgery to remove nodules (usually). POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS Without treatment, permanent hoarseness or voice alteration. Failure to diagnose larynx cancer, which also begins with hoarseness. PROBABLE OUTCOME: Curable with a simple surgical procedure. HOW TO TREAT GENERAL MEASURES Nodules may disappear if the voice is rested for several months. If you choose this treatment rather than surgery, speak in a whisper or write notes. Dont smoke, and avoid smokey environments. MEDICATION: After surgery: Your doctor may prescribe antibiotics to prevent infection. You may take mild non-prescription pain relievers, if necessary, such as acetaminophen or aspirin. ACTIVITY: Dont use your voice after surgery until your doctor determines that healing is complete. DIET : No special diet. CALL YOUR DOCTOR IF You are hoarse for more than 2 weeks.

The first play of the game, the Gators Andre Debose took the opening kickoff 99-yards for a Gator touchdown and the lead with only just under a minute into the game. And the rest of the game was devoted to the Gamecocks rolling up the score on the Gators. The Gamecocks responded with a 49-yard field goal from Spencer Lanning. And with only 2:36 left in the 1st quarter the Gamecocks phenomenal running back, Marcus Lattimore, scored a touchdown on a 7-yard scamper with 2:26 showing on the game clock. At the end of the 1st quarter the score was: Gators 7; Gamecocks 10. The Gamecocks added 47-yard and 41-yard field goals by Lanning in the 2nd quarter to notch the score at the half with Gators 7, Gamecocks 15. In the 3rd quarter, Gamecocks Lattimore ripped off a 21-yard run to add another touchdown to pad the lead; Gamecocks 22, Gators 7. In the 4th quarter, another Gamecock 8-yard touchdown run by Stephen Garcia put the game on ice essentially. The Gators Chris Rainey broke a 26-yard pass from Jordan Reed for a touchdown with 7:12 left to play in the game but the Gamecocks had the last score of the night with another touchdown by Marcus Lattimore from 11-yards out to close out the game. Final score: Gamecocks 36, Gators 14. South Carolinas head coach, Steve Spurrier, was responsible for naming Ben Hill Griffin Stadium The SwampŽ during his tenure as the Florida Gators head coach. During his Florida Gator days, Spurrier-led teams were 63-5 in Gainesville. Spurrier quipped, Sometimes the Gamecocks get out aliveŽ in response to The Swamps motto Where only Gators get out aliveŽ after the upset win in Gainesville. Meyers quote and understatement was, We just didnt execute. Were just not very good.Ž The Gators (6-4, 4-4 SEC) finish this years home season versus Appalachian State Mountaineers (9-1, 7-1 Southern) on Saturday, November 20, 2010 in Gainesville with a 12:30 PM EST kickoff. The game will be carried on pay per view only. The Mountaineers come off a 4313 drubbing of the Wofford Terriers and in the process have clinched the Southern leagues automatic NCAA Division I play off bid. They also tie the conference record for their sixth SoCon championship. The Mountaineers tend to score early and often so the Gator defense must be ready to avenge the Gamecock loss and shut down the Mountaineers early.

The game looked as if it was going to overtime, but Garrard heaved a pass toward the end zone with no time on the clock. Quin, who was burned all afternoon, tried to bat the ball to the ground. Instead, he knocked it right to Thomas. Thomas, who was trailing behind the pass and looking for a ricochet, caught it at the 1-yard line, then stepped across the goal line for the winner. The Jaguars (5-4) went into a frenzy and even drew a celebration penalty that couldn't be enforced. The Texans (4-5) trudged off the field in disbelief. It was Houston's third consecutive loss, dropping it from the top of the AFC South to the bottom. nfl.com

Funding will help students at UNCF's 39 member historically black colleges and universities complete their senior year and receive their college degrees. "We are grateful for Lowe's generous gift and for their commitment to education," said Michael L. Lomax, Ph.D., UNCF president and CEO. "These students have done everything in their power to graduate. Now, they have come to the last mile and need help crossing the finish line. We encourage communities across America to follow in Lowe's footsteps and help these students get the education they need." As the recession lingers, many students at UNCF schools continue to find themselves in financially vulnerable positions. Unemployment and pay cuts still reduce families' financial support for their children's education. The credit crunch still keeps private student loans off the market. And students still come up short of the funds they need to cover tuition and room and board balances. "Lowe's commitment to improving communities begins by supporting organizations that give students the resources to become tomorrow's employees, homeowners and community leaders," said Larry Stone, chairman of Lowe's Charitable and Educational Foundation. "By supporting organizations like UNCF, Lowe's is contributing to a cause that is important to our customers and employees and invests in helping students achieve their fullest potential by completing their college degrees." Individuals, corporations and foundations can help thousands of students finish the fall semester by contributing to the Campaign For Essential Student Aid. To make a donation, visit www.uncf.org and click on Campaign for Essential Student Aid or call Francene Walker, UNCF Director of Individual and Planned Giving at 703-205-3569 to help keep kids in college. Since its founding, UNCF has helped 350,000 students earn degrees from its 39 member colleges and universities. Today, 55,000 students attend UNCF member institutions each year. FLORIDA MEMORIAL UNIVERSITY BOARD OF TRUSTEES SELECTS NEW PRESIDENT MIAMI GARDENS, FL …The Florida Memorial University Board of Trustees has selected Henry Lewis III, Pharm.D. to serve as Florida Memorial Universitys new president. The announcement was made during an afternoon meeting attended by nearly 300 faculty, staff and students anticipating an introduction of the new president-elect by Charles W. George, chairman of the Board of Trustees. After being introduced to the campus family, Dr. Lewis expressed his appreciation to the Board for their confidence in his leadership and stewardship, and his enthusiasm to instill confidence and competence in each prospective Florida Memorial graduate. I see a diamond in the rough in Florida Memorial University, and I am confident that the institution can be the greatest institution it can be,Ž he stated.

C&J1 C M Y K Crime and Justice Crime and JusticeA Publication of the Florida Star and Georgia Star November 20, 2010 THE STARVol. 1, No. 1 TOP STORIES Innocent Teen Stomped To DeathFour young men now stand accused for the senseless death of a fellow teen. Bobby Tillman, 18, a student well-loved by his family and friends, died from massive chest injuries after he was beaten so badly his broken bones punctured his heart. The heinous incident occurred during a party in Douglasville on Saturday, November 6. Nearly one hundred people stood by and did nothing as Bobby, who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, was stomped on and beaten into bloody unconsciousness. Douglas County Chief Deputy Stan Copeland said investigators believed the four suspects arrested were the only people responsible for Tillman's death. "We are pretty confident that we have the four people involved and they were the only four involved," said Copeland. According to Copeland, eyewitness accounts combined with jailhouse interviews of the four teens involved would be reviewed by investigators. "One eyewitness can be wrong but ten eyewitnesses it lessens the field a lot. These young men have an up hill battle,"Copeland said. Douglas County District Attorney David McDade said he would examine the television interviews and use them in court. "A jury, when this case goes to trial, will have the opportunity thanks to interviews you all did, to evaluate demeanor of the defendants in a way that they rarely get to see," McDade said. In the meantime, McDade and the grieving family made a public plea for video evidence of the crime, as amateur cell phone videos of neighborhood fights have grown in popularity in the last few years. McDade said, "I would encourage your viewers, if they know of any cellphone video come forward and let us know." According to McDade, the death penalty in this case was possible, but he has not yet determined whether or not he will seek it. Mother and Daughter Receive Prison Time for Hit-and-RunThe air in the Atlanta courtroom was thick with regret when the 24-year-old Atlanta woman who fled the scene after causing a crash that killed five people on Easter 2009 was handed a 50-year prison sentence. The judge who sentenced her said it was her flight from the crime scene and her mother's ensuing cover-up that were the deciding factors in her case. Judge Kimberly M. Esmond Adams ordered a tearful Aimee Michael to serve 36 years in prison with the rest on probation and added that Michael is permanently banned from obtaining a Georgia driver's license for her starring role in the crash that destroyed three families. Three children were among the dead in two cars on Camp Creek Parkway on April 12, 2009. Up until that moment, Michael, a recent college graduate from a stable family, had had a promising future. Judge Adams, her voice wavering and her eyes filling with tears said, "It was by far the most tragic case I have ever seen.Ž On Monday, a jury convicted Michael of causing a crash that forced a Mercedes to spin out of control into oncoming traffic, resulting in a head-on collision with a Volkswagen Beetle. An entire family was killed in the Mercedes, and a little girl died in the Volkswagen. Things took a terrible turn when Michael, assisted by her mother, Sheila, fled and tried to cover up her role by arranging repairs to the BMW she had been driving. Her mother pleaded guilty on October 15 to helping with the cover-up. The judge showed even less mercy to the mother; she sentenced Sheila Michael to the maximum eight years in prison for failing to turn her daughter in to police -more than even prosecutors had recommended. Marios Mother Drops Assault ChargesIt appears that Mario does not have any more legal troubles to worry about for the time being. His mother, Shawntia Hardaway, just dropped all charges against him after claiming he pushed her 8 feet into a wall. Struggling with a heroin addiction, Hardaway claimed that she was angry and under the influence of drugs when she filed the false report on Mario. Mario, who is glad that he has been vindicated, vowed continued support for his mother.

In daylight hours, refresh your memory with these tips on what to do in an emergency situation. This is for you and for you to share with your daughter, your sister, your children and everyone you know. It never hurts to be careful! 1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do : The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do so! 2. If a robber demands your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO THEM. Toss it away from you.....chances are that they are more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION! 3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out the back tail lights, stick your arm out of the hole and begin waving like crazy. The driver won't see you, but everybody else will. This has saved lives. 4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sitting (balancing their checkbook, making a list, etc.) DON'T DO THIS! The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for them to get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your head and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR, LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE. 5. If someone is in the car with a gun to your head, DO NOT DRIVE OFF. Repeat: DO NOT DRIVE OFF! Instead gun the engine and speed into anything, wrecking the car. Your air bag will save you. If the person is in the back seat, they will get the worst of it. As soon as the car crashes, get out and run. It is better than having them find your body in a remote location. 6. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot or parking garage: A.) Be aware Look around you, look into your car, at the passenger side floor, and in the back seat. B.) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the victims are attempting to get into their cars. C.) Look at the car parked on the driver's side of your vehicle and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the building and get a guard or policeman to walk you back out. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY (and better paranoid than dead). 7. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot. This is especially true at NIGHT! 8. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN, preferably in a zig-zag pattern! 9. Use sympathy with extreme discretion if youre not careful, it could get you raped or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well-educated man, who ALWAYS preyed on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane or a limp, and often asked 'for help' into his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim. 10. If you are home alone at night and hear a baby crying outside your door, do not open it. Police have recently released reports in which women who had been home alone called in a possible abandoned baby. In each case, the women were told, Whatever you do, DO NOT open the doorŽ. The police believed that a serial killer has a baby's cry recorded and uses it to coax women out of their homes with the belief that someone has dropped off a baby. Although this has not been verified, the Crying Baby TheoryŽ was mentioned on America's Most WantedŽ when they profiled a serial killer in Louisiana. 11. If you wake up in the middle of the night to hear all your taps outside running or what you think is a burst pipe, DO NOT GO OUTSIDE! These people turn on all your outside taps full blast so that you will go out to investigate and then attack. Bottom Line: stay alert, keep safe and look out for your neighbors!

C&J PAGE A-3 THE STAR November 20, 2010 ASSAULT/BATTERY On November 1, an officer was dispatched to an apartment complex regarding a battery. According to the report, the female victim told police that the male suspect had come by her apartment for a brief visit, walking right in to sit on her couch as the victim kept her front door open due to a lack of air conditioning. The victim stated that the suspect, who the officer observed was clearly disturbed, had been constantly entering and exiting the victims apartment for several hours that night. She went on to say that around midnight she asked him to leave. He began to go out of the door, then suddenly whipped around and pushed his way back in. The suspect then seized the victim by the neck and began chocking her; the victim told police that she felt as if she was blacking out. She resisted, kicking against his legs and torso while trying to scream as he attempted to pull her pants off. At some point during the struggle, the suspect released his hold on her neck by throwing her down on the floor. Each time she attempted to get up, he pushed her back down, causing injuries to both of the victims knees and her jaw. The suspect then dropped to his knees and began crawling across the floor, making comments that the victim and her mother were going to be dead. Some time later, he sat back down on the couch where he eventually fell asleep. The victim was 7 months pregnant. When police attemp ted to question the subject before arresting him, he stated, I plead the fifthŽ. BURGLARY On Tuesday, October 5, a victim reported a burglary to their residence, stating that someone had pushed in a window air conditi oning unit and entered their home. $400 in cash, as well as a 32-inch LCD television were taken from the scene before the suspect or suspects ex ited by the front door. Police responded and three fingerprints were recovered from the crime scene; these were submitted for processing. One print recovered fromt the air conditioning unit inside of the victims house was identified to the 20-year-old suspect that a JSO police officer made contact with on Monday, November 1. The suspect was already in jail for unrelated burglary charg es. After being ready his Miranda rights, the suspect agreed to speak to police about the burglary; he admitted that he had been with two accomplices, but also stated that he did not know their legal names. The suspect said that one of his accomplices pushed the air conditioning unit through the window before the suspect climbed through, touching the unit when he landed inside of the house. He went on to say that his involvement was minimal, stating that he did not know what was stolen and all he did was open the front door for their escape. One of his accomplices apparently gave hi m $100 for his assistance. The suspect told police that he had taken part in six burglaries with these two accomplices but would not give further details about their identities. He also declined to make a written statement. Charges of burglary were added to his record. DRIVING WITHOUT LICENSE On Monday, November 1, a 41-year-old man was arrested in an apartment complex for knowingly operating a vehicle without a drivers license. When the man was questioned by police, he told them that his license had not been suspended or revoked, but he had in fact never been issued one in his entire life. The amused officer took the local resident into custody immediately. Since this was the mans first offense, the bond amount wa s set at $355. FAILURE TO PAY CHILD SUPPORT A local Jacksonville man was recently found in contempt of court for failure to pay child support. A police officer was dispatched to the 500 block of Adams Stret in reference to serving a warrant, and to make an arrest on a 2 8-year-old male suspect for late child support payments. Upon arrival, police officer made contact with the suspect. The suspect was read his rights, arre sted, taken to jail, and booked on civilŽ charges. The suspect was sentenced to 60 days in county jail. He may purge the infraction from his record by paying a $500 fine. ASSAULT WITH A DEADLY WEAPON Police responded to a 911 emergency call on Alden Road, where a male victim was brutally stabbed by a male suspect. According to reports, the two men had been first engaged in a verbal altercation before the suspect brought out a knife and pro ceeded to stab the victim. It is unknown whether or not the incident was drug related. The victim was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was placed intensive care. The suspect was read his Miranda rights and arrested. He was later charged with a felony. From Actual Police Reports From Actual Police Reports Did You Hear About?... Did You Hear About?... SSSHH!

C&P1 C M Y K Those Legs Were Made for WalkingThings were looking up for Frank Singleton, 21, as he was released from jail. However, when he realized that he didn't have a ride home, he walked straight into the prison parking lot and attempted to carjack a woman. He was foiled when he realized that he couldn't drive a stick-shift car. As he was re-arrested -this time, for felony carjacking -Singleton told police that he simply "didn't feel like walking." Dumbest Criminals Dumbest CriminalsFlorida and Georgias Finest November 20, 2010 THE STARC&P Page B 1 Now Hiring28-year-old Demetrius Robinson wanted to rob a Golden Pantry store late one night, but he needed to pass the time as naturally as possible until he and the clerk were alone. He decided to fill out a job application. Not a bad idea, except he left his real name on the application, along with his uncle's phone number. After he robbed the store, it didn't take long for police to track him down. Needless to say, he didn't get the job. Billion Dollar DummyRule #1 of trying to cash a bogus check: make it out for a reasonable amount. Charles Ray Fuller, 21, broke that rule and all conventions of common sense when he tried to cash a check for $360BILLION DOLLARS To top it off, the check wasn't even made out to him. He was arrested on forgery charges. Lets face it dumb or smart, there are criminals everywhere. The best defense is a good offense: a solid strategy and being s marter than the bad guy (or dumb one). € Invest in a home security system and keep it on and monitored 24/7/365. € Make sure it has glass break sensors, monitors doors, windows and has motion sensors. € Be sure to protect basement windows all the way up to the highest level windows and porch doors for maximum home safety. € Install at least a 4-16 cameras surveillance system that can be accessed from the web and has full night vision. € Remove or lock up exterior ladders preventing the bad guy from gaining access. € Lock all doors and windows when you are home and away, especially at night and in the summer months, too.

Two JSO Officers Resign After Two JSO Officers Resign After Internal Affairs Investigation Internal Affairs InvestigationSheriff John Rutherford recently announced that the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office has concluded its internal affairs investigation of two of the five officers response to the March 26th armed bank robbery and carjacking, where the armed robber/carjacker Jeremiah Mathis was killed by police, and a young child and his mother in the car were injured by gunfire. The State Attorneys Office cleared the five officers of any criminal wrong doing in June. This entity investigates all officerinvolved shootings and found no violation of criminal law or criminal intent by officers. By the end of the investigation, and based on the determination of no criminal wrongdoing, the JSO was able to convene its Response to Resistance (RTR) board hearing. (Garrity vs New Jersey, 1967) The RTR board hearing, held in June and open to the public, determined that Lt. Jesse York, Officer Jason Lederman, and Officer Richard Santoro all acted within policy guidelines and they were returned to their regular police duties. Also at the June hearing, that same board recommended that the actions of Officers Ryan Black and Darries Griffith be referred to Internal Affairs for an investigation into whether or not their actions were within the guidelines of the agencys policies. Both Griffith and Black fired their guns multiple times at Mathis as he carjacked a vehicle occupied by a woman and two small children, at a Wendys drive thru window, located on Baymeadows Road. Mathis was attempting to escape police apprehension following an armed bank robbery he committed just minutes earlier, at a nearby Wachovia Bank, by carjacking the car and taking its three occupants hostage at gunpoint. The two officers continued firing as the car occupied by Mathis and his three hostages moved forward in the restaurants drive thru lane. The Sheriffs review of the internal affairs investigation determined that because the two officers did not act with any certainty about the presence of the three innocent hostages, they did not use reasonable caution necessary to avoid unnecessarily endangering the lives of others during the discharge of their firearms. The review of the investigation also concluded that officers Black and Griffith failed to use reasonable caution by shooting at a car that was in motion which caused them to continually move their point of aim, putting other officers and citizens in a position to be exposed to the gunfire. It was later determined that 2 year old Daniel Crichton, restrained in a car seat in the backseat of the vehicle, was shot by one of Blacks 24 fired rounds. The childs mother also sustained a gunshot wound. The child and his mother survived their injuries.

In this pattern we are seeing vacant apartments and closed businesses targeted for these thefts. Additionally, other targeted properties include locations where the thief (thieves) are not in plain view, and can be concealed while removing the unit. The Jacksonville Sheriffs Office needs your help. Please report any suspicious activity, suspicious persons or people, or trucks you see during non-traditional business hours carrying air conditioning units. You can call JSO at 630-0500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS (to remain anonymous and become eligible for a reward). Obviously this is a crime that represents a significant economic impact to the people whose homes or businesses are hit,Ž said Michael Bruno, JSOs Assistant Chief of Crimes Against Property. We want the public to continue to work with the police and let us know when something just doesnt seemŽ right in your neighborhood or near your business,Ž he said. Wed also like to ask the community to assist us in helping our houses of worship, because many of those properties can go for several days with very little or no activity. So when youre driving around out there, keep an eye out around the houses of worship in your area.Ž Bruno said. Some theft prevention techniques gaining popularity include: Digital cameras mounted outside the home, business or church GPS devices inside the unit Metal caging around the exterior of the air conditioning unit. If you would like to find out if your neighborhood (or business area) has a watch group already in service to the community, or you are interested in starting one, please contact JSOs Community Affairs division at 630-2160

C&J PAGE B-3 THE STAR November 20, 2010 In Your Neighborhood In Your Neighborhood Female Thieves on the LooseTwo women armed with handguns held up another woman as she was leaving her home on the Westside, police informed the press. The victim told police that she had opened the garage door and saw the two women on the sidewalk outside her home on Shelby Creek Road West, south of Normandy Boulevard. According to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, she said as she was getting into her vehicle, the women ran into her garage, pointed guns at her and forced her to go back inside. The women reportedly demanded money from the victim and assaulted her, tying her wrists and ankles together with electrical cords ripped from nearby appliances. The victim was able to provide descriptions of the two suspects for a composite sketch artist. If you know anything that can help find the suspects, call our partner First Coast Crime Stoppers at 866-845-TIPS (8477) Robbers At Large in Nassau CountyAccording to the Nassau County police, the Pizza Hut on South 8th Street in Fernandina Beach was robbed by two suspects Tuesday evening soon after closing. Two employees called 911, saying they had been robbed by two men as they left the store after it closed. When they couldn't get the safe open, two robbery suspects decided to get what they could from their victims. The employees told police that one of the men had a gun and the other said he also had one. The suspects forced the employees back into the store and told them to open the safe.Once the they convinced them the time-lock safe couldn't be opened, they said the suspects demanded their personal possessions, then ran off. Deputies were heading to the restaurant when a witness called about a suspicious person in a nearby area. One deputy found the person who matched the suspect's description and reported that he ran when he saw the deputy. He was quickly apprehended after a footchase through the local neighborhood. In the suspect's clothing the deputy found several of the items reported stolen by the store employees, and upon tracing the path the chase had followed, the deputy also found a gun. Deputies are still searching for the second suspect. Man Killed In Game Store Burglary40-year-old Adrian Tyrone was shot twice and later died from his wounds after he tried to fend off two robbers trying to tie him up when he entered the Game Stop on Dogwood Drive, according to police. Two men in connection with the robbery were later arrested. Their charges have now been upgraded to murder since the victims death in the hospital, when the doctors could not stop the bleeding. Authorities are investigating whether the men are the same ones who stole from the video game stores in DeKalb and Gwinnett recently. They also are looking for a third and possibly a fourth person in connection with the incident. Giovannte Maddox, 27, and Demarkus Lamar Williams, 25, were arrested Thursday after authorities from Conyers and Rockdale chased them through the woods that served as a border between the GameStop store and a stolen car they were going to use to drive away, Police Chief Gene Wilson said. Authorities think either Maddox or Williams shot the victim. The men, both from Atlanta, were charged with armed robbery, and Wilson said police think they are the same men who robbed GameStop stores in nearby counties. There are a lot of similarities between the crimes,Ž Wilson told WSB Radio. According to Wilsdon, the store attendant was tied up in other robberies. Police were called to the GameStop store in the 1300 block of Dogwood Drive after someone called 911 to report a shooting, Wilson said. Officers arrived to find a man shot inside the store and two others running from the business, he said. According to police, the suspects entered the store, locked the front door, pulled guns and then took the store clerk to the back of the store and tied him up, WSB Radio said. The men were in the process of taking money and video games when a customer -the victim-walked up and knocked on the door. The robbers let the victim inside before trying to tie him up. When the customer resisted, the men shot him in the hand and in the chest. Wilson told WSB Radio that Snow was flown to Grady Memorial Hospital and immediately was taken into surgery. Meanwhile, authorities were looking for a third man in connection with the robbery, searching the drain system that runs underneath the shopping center, WSB Radio said. The two suspects have be subsequently charged with two counts of armed robbery; kidnapping; two counts of aggravated assault; aggravated battery; obstruction and possession of a firearm during a crime.Composite sketches of the suspects.

Tony Parker of the San
Antonio Spurs and his
wife, actress Eva
Longoria were married in
2007. Everyone felt that
there was so much love,
the marriage would last
for a lifetime. However,
on Wednesday, Eva
placed a note on Twitter
stating that even though
she and Tony loved each
other very much, they
were getting a divorce.
Tony later left the same
note on Twitter.
It appears that Tony's
team mate, Brent Barry
and wife were also in the
midst of getting a divorce
and that Tony and Erin
were having an affair,
which she denied but
Tony admitted.

Billionaire Brothers of Much

Used Products Fund Tea Party
So you use Georgia-Pacific products Brawny Paper Towels, Quilted Northern
toilet paper, etc. Well then, you are supporting Koch Industries, which is in almost
60 countries and has more than 70,000 employees. It is one of the largest private
companies in America and markets products such as gasoline, diesel,jet fuel, etc. It
operates refineries in Alaska, Minnesota and Texas.
Even though the company said that The New Yorker Magazine story is not com-
pletely correct when it stated that the billionaire brothers are waging a war against
Obama, it has given millions of dollars to attack the federal government, and partic-
ularly the Obama administration.
The Koch brothers say they love what the Tea Party is doing because it shows "how
we are going to take back America", according to the article. They funded such can-
didates as Rubio in Florida.
In 1958, Fred Koch became one of the original members of the John Birch Society.

Challenging Racial Prejudice

Challenging racial prejudice in the United States in the 1950s was a daunting undertaking and continues today.
While African-Americans, in the main, again bore the brunt of the backlash, no single person, group, or institu-
tion put civil rights on the national agenda, and no one person, group, or institution saw to it that it stayed on the
national agenda.
The changes in attitude and law that did occur, came about as the result of a shared commitment from many,
many people who took risks, highlighted injustice, and press the cause for change. That commitment was not an
easy one to make then and is missing on present civil and human rights agendas.
Today, its easy for some to forget the historical era of the fifties and sixties and the frequent deaths of civil rights
activists. This is largely due to the lack of Black History infused in school curriculums and Baby Boomers fail-
ing to tell their children and grandchildren the stories as it relates to the civil rights movement.
During the civil rights movement, tens of thousands of people of all races risked not just their standing in the
community, but also their lives, in the hope of building a coalition for racial equality that could not possibly be
ignored. They succeeded in building coalitions, even if the highest ideals of the cause they promoted remain in
some cases, unfulfilled.
The Movement as it came to be known was fueled not only by courageous African-Americans, but also by col-
lege students and religious leaders of many races.
These activists employed the tactics of legal challenges and civil protests including sit-ins, marches, freedom
rides and other initiatives in their efforts to see that African-Americans received equal opportunity and protection
in the United States.
As some groups and individuals are advocating take back America, its important that the religious and civil
rights communities rekindle a diverse movement that seeks to reform the criminal justice system, in the United
States. Also to dismantle the influence of public, private, political, and economic interests in the prison industri-
al complex.
Over the years, I have come to see more and more clearly the ways in which the criminal/juvenile justice and
the prison system in the United States is fundamentally, bias and must be at the top of a modem day civil and
human rights movement.
Disparity has raised its ugly head in Congress against two senior political icons, Representatives Charles Rangel
and Maxine Waters and because I care passionately about dismantling racism on all levels, we must address this
modem day crisis as it continues to create hardships and fill jails and prisons and at a great lost and cost to African
Americans, other minorities, and the poor.

Regardless of your educational level, size of your automobile or where you resides,
you are still a negro in America.
If this is not another wake up call for economic self empowerment; what will it
take now to wake-up some mis-educated, under-educated, uneducated and misguid-
ed spiritually, emotionally and mentally challenge people?
Until you begin to believe in self, make sacrifices for you're children's children,
embrace education as mandatory in our communities, decrease materialistic con-
sumption and stop giving money to pimping (male and female) bishops and pastors,
stop electing misguided and self serving BP's (Black Politicians) and stop looking
for a hand-out, until then we will continues to be free slaves with no culture, direc-
tion or love for self, family and community.
It's time to take a serious look at the African American Economic Roadmap pre-
pared by me in 2004 for the African American community if you're serious about a
collective change for the African American community. Keep in mind that Asians
own their own businesses and employed their own people.

Ps. I want to thank all of the religious fanatics that voted for George Bush not once
but twice in the name of Jesus. You are definitely receiving your blessing with high-
er taxes, negro students left behind in education (Raines and Ribault situation is
criminal intent), unemployment, foreclosures, medical and educational expenses,
your stupidity card is in the mail.

Pete Jackson, its time for the first annual 2010 Jacksonville African American
Economic Summit now at your church. I hope you don't need Mr. (Chalrl / permis-
sion to have the summit. If that is the case let Mr. (Cha rl/, tell you where we can have
it. It does not matter to me the location but I need you at the table along with two or
three more serious minded people. I know of three people I can trust without a
doubt.

I'm back and "sick and tired of being sick and tired," (Fannie Lou Hamer), lead,
follow or get the hell out of the way.

ROBERT TOWNSEND
CRUSES INTO SEASON 3 FOR
SINGLE MOMS!
BY RYCH MCCAIN, FEEDBACKRYCH@SBCGLOBAL.NET AND
FACEBOOK CELEB PAGE
PHOTO OF ROBERT TOWNSEND BY KEITH MUNYAN CAST PHOTO
COURTESY PIC.TV


Diary of a Single Mom Cast Photo courtesy of Pic.TV

Thursday, November 18, 2010 marks the third season premiere of
Robert Townsend's "Diary of a Single Mom," for the Public Internet Channel
www.pic.tv. Over the last two seasons, this dramatically powerful show has
won many awards including "Best Indie Soap" The American Soap World
Awards; "Web Series of the Year" L.A. Web Series Festival; "Best Leading
Actress" (Monica Calhoun) in a Web Series 2010; "Best Guest Actor (Billy
Dee Williams) from the Indie Soap Awards 2009 and "Best Dramatic
Writing" (Cheryl L. West" the 14th Annual Webby Awards. The cast includes
Monica Calhoun (The Best Man) as Ocean Jackson, a single mother of two;
striving to keep her family afloat while working to fulfill her own ambitions of
getting her GED, going to college and opening her own business. She
befriends two other single moms, Lupe (Valery Ortiz The N's "South of
Nowhere"), a mother juggling different fathers for each of her two children
while facing health concerns that will change her life, and Peggy (Janice
Lynde "Letters to Dad"), a once wealthy, and recently widowed grand-
mother who finds herself now broke and guardian to her only grandchild.
The three women band together as they strive to triumph over the chal-
lenges of everyday life.
The show's director and producer is Robert Townsend who may be
best known for his film's "Hollywood Shuffle," "Meteor Man" and The WB
Network TV sitcom "The Parent Hood." What compelled Townsend to cre-
ate this show? He responds, "The idea came from a gentleman out of D.C.
named Ray Ramsey. Ray wanted to do a show about single mothers and
he had a show for the web. He approached me and then I brought in a
writer that I had worked with before, Cheryl L. West to write the story. She
worked on a film that I directed called "Holiday Heart". So she wrote the
script but it was Ray's vision and he said three different single mothers from
different ethnic backgrounds and then we discussed it. That's how it all
came together.
This show runs on the Public Internet Channel www.pic.tv via the
non-profit organization called "A One Economy Corporation" in association
with V-Studio and Townsend Productions. The Public Internet Channel and
www.pic.tv is a different vehicle for independent producers. How does it
work and how is it financed? Townsend explains, "Pic.TV is financed by var-
ious non-profits in D.C like the Ford Foundation. Different people have
funded it and on that site, people get a lot of information and helpful tips
about life and many things." There is even talk of one of the major cable
networks doing a one hour special on "Diary." Who knows a movie could
happen as well but Townsend is in "Let's-See-What-Happens" mode on that
one.
one. Townsend has always
been on the forefront of mak-
ing projects happen as
opposed to sitting around
complaining and belly-aching
about no work; particularly for
BlackAfrikan people. When he
did "Hollywood Shuffle," back
in the 80's, the technology to
produce videos and digital
films was not available like it is
today. So what are the hurdles
that keep potential Black
Afrikan film makers from com-
pleting projects today? He
ponders that one and says
bluntly, "There aren't a lot of
obstacles for young film mak-
ers to make movies and televi-
sion shows and what have you
because the technology is
affordable now. It is much eas-
ier now for those who have the
passion to make it happen!

(BPRW) Thandie Newton Powerfully Performs For
Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When
the Rainbow is Enuf

Groundbreaking Work of Literature Now a New Audiobook

(BLACK PR WIRE) What: Audible.com presents the Obie Award-winning for colored
girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf, new in audio. Soon to be a
star-studded movie, this mesmerizingly original story is performed by one of the film's
stars, acclaimed actress Thandie Newton. Playwright, poet, and novelist Ntozake Shange
(Some Sing, Some Cry) chronicles the interconnected lives of a group of women, explor-
ing shatteringly difficult issues, and evoking the indomitable power of enduring hope and
joy. The New York Times called the book, "rich with the author's special voice: by turns
bitter, funny, ironic, and savage; fiercely honest and personal." Thandie Newton, from the
movies Crash, The Pursuit of Happyness, and W., captures the author's uniquely vivid and
lyrical voice, as well as each emotion, with heartbreaking clarity in a fearless, passionate,
and inspiring performance.

The five precincts that had over 70 percent voter
turnout were Precinct 14R the Ortega United Methodist
Church, which had a 74.22 percent total voter turnout,
Precincts 03A the Queen's Harbour Yacht and Country
Club, 13G the Adele Grage Cultural Center and 14P the
Ortega United Methodist Church topped 71 percent
turnout and Precinct 05E the Saint Mark's Luthern
Church ELCA, was at 70-90 percent for the Election.
What is this telling the voters around Duval County?
That these people had a planned strategy and commit-
ment that they followed through. The other voters,
African Americans and Hispanics, did not feel it was
important to go out to the polls and therefore will now
suffer the consequence.
Also, please note that most of the precincts were
churches. That is another message on how the pastors
and ministers were helping to get the people out to vote.
It d definitely shows the organization of the tea party
members and how much they believed in what they are
doing and the importance of their desire.
Just as the tea party members stood together for the
November 2, 2010 election, it appear the same thing is
happening with Dancing With the Stars, where Sarah
Palin's daughter keeps getting the high votes from the
audiences, not from the judges. In fact, in a survey, it
was discovered that there are or were web sites,advising
tea party members that they could vote more than one
time by changing e-mail addresses. One lady said she


voted 300 times for Palin's daughter. It also shows that
beliefs are stronger than honesty.
Many African American organizations, including the
Black media tried to let the community know how cru-
cial it was to vote, if they wanted to stop the republicans
from rolling back job creations, healthcare and financial
reforms that President Obama fought and continues to
fight for.
Richard Burton of Project R.E.A.C.H. said that "the
invisible vapor of racism has caused many young voters
both black and white to distrust the political system and
to skip this past election. Also, many seniors voted out
of fear with the belief that healthcare is reparations and
black kids can beat up white kids with impunity."
What those who are complaining about the high deficit
have forgotten how we got into debt and have not taken
the time to use mathematics.
Rather than cut off unemployment, they should under-
stand that if a person is getting some form of income,
the economy will continue because those unemployed
and homeless will have money to put into the economy,
if it is just for food and clothing, or a place to stay warm
or stay cool.
The unemployment money does place funds back into
the economy through funds just to survive. Will extend-
ing tax cuts to the wealthy make the same impact? Not
as long as jobs are being outsourced and the large com-
panies, like our former vice president, are moving their


Leaders Continued from A-1
and mathematics.
Observing the methods that were being passed on to the teachers from the coach-
es, the principal and the consultant from Kentucky, it is believed that Pinedale wil
quickly move from being an "F" school to an "A" school.
Both Florida Star observers saw that the schools were promoting student growth
and performance, evaluating instructional needs of students, planning and deliver-
ing effective instructions and utilizing appropriate classroom management includ-
ing discipline.
At Stonewall Jackson Elementary, Dan said he observed that there were no male
teachers. He said that there were two occasions of discipline that he felt a male
presence would have made a difference. He therefore agreed to become a regular
visitor and formed a pact with a class to get the green sticker for behavior more
times than any other class.
The Florida Star also agreed to provide the schools with papers each week.

The republicans are saying that the reason the elec-
tions went the way they did is because people want
them to provide help to those in need, not add to the
debt. Unemployment and bringing jobs back to
America will not deepen out debt. Extending unem-
ployment to those who have low income levels will do
much more to stimulate the economy than providing the
wealthiest Americans with additional tax cuts.
It is the method that was used to communicate to
Americans that made them vote the way they did in this
past election. They were fed information that was not
beneficial to them, but beneficial to those who wish to
continue the one percent of America's wealth.
We need more jobs created, and they do not all need to
be desk jobs. We need to begin manufacturing again.
According to reports, the top jobs in America today are
retail salespersons, cashiers, office clerks, food service
workers, registered nurses, waiters and waitresses, cus-
tomer service representatives, material movers, janitors,
stock clerks and order fillers, secretaries, bookkeepers,
general managers, truck drivers and elementary school
teachers.

THE v~NOVu1FHRER 20- 2010


By: Lucius Gantt


Our beloved President Barack Obama is a cham-
pion that is like another champion. Both Obama and
boxer Floyd Mayweather appear as if they are scared
to fight!
Mayweather has refused to fight Manny Pacquiao
and the President seems unwilling to battle with
Congressional Republicans.
Lord, I hope Obama didn't blow his only chance to
do the things that he promised he would in his thrilling
campaign speeches two years ago.
When Obama won the Presidential Election, he was a Democrat, the
U.S. Senate was Democratic and the House of Representatives was
Democratic. The Democrats that Black people voted for were in power and
could have pushed through any legislation they wanted to.
But no, that was too easy to do. Obama and his team wanted to be known
as consensus builders, non-partisan politicians and friendly aisle-walkers.
Where has that love for political togetherness gotten Americans? Nowhere!
Power never takes a step back, only in the face of more power!
Democrats had power and didn't use it or were afraid to use it.
Perhaps not much significant and ground breaking legislation was done
in the two years of the Obama administration because of Obama's advisors
and Obama's campaign contributors.
Many of Obama's Democratic advisors didn't and still don't have a clue
about what the people want.
Our idea of a good President is not George Bush dipped in chocolate!
We don't want to be forever controlled by beast bankers, stock brokers and
insurance companies. We want elected officials that will fight for us!
Muhammad Ali didn't get to be the greatest champion ever by singing the
praises of his opponents, Ali won battles and multiple World Heavyweight
Titles by swinging! Ali was a fighter.
Democrats can bow down to America's money changers all they want to
but they will never raise more campaign money than Republican fundrais-
ers.
Democrats have to win their political wars on the front lines. Obama and
Congressional Democrats have to take their ideas for change to the streets
and convince everyday people that lowering the deficit is necessary, ending
wars and conflicts are mandatory and job creation is extremely important.
Lace 'em up Obama, the Republicans have vowed to make you a one
term President. Stay or leave, whatever you do, do it for the people. There
will be no CHANGE without a fight!

William Jackson, M.Ed
Bullying Physical and Cyber in Our Schools

What is bullying? Florida statute defines bullying as systematically and chroni-
cally inflicting physical hurt or psychological distress through teasing; social
exclusion; threats;
intimidation; stalking; physical violence; theft; sexual, religious or
racial harassment; public humiliation; or destruction of property.
Mrs. Burney having done so in the past started community meetings
addressing bullying and violence in schools. Her attempts are to see
more students willing to tell what they're going through before there
is injury or worse. "Some kids are afraid they'll get hurt worse if they
report," Burney said. "We need to let them know they have a safe
place and it'll be OK" (Fl Times Union May 31, 2010 Duval schools
will start to track bullying complaints).
The facts are: Bullying begins in elementary school, peaks in middle
school, and falls off in high school. It does not disappear altogether.
(The Facts About Bullying, 1997) 61.6% of students who are bullied
are picked on because of their looks or speech.
(U.S. News & World Report, May 7, 2001)
Physical and Digital Bullying
Several areas of concern are the physical aspects of bullying and
the use of technology to continue the behavior that has caused
suicides in past episodes at schools. The curse of technology has
allowed for continuous communication between students in an
environment where information is permanent and accessible by mass.
Emailing, texting and social media are the tools students use to
communicate and exchange information. The most notable incidents
are the "Hit Lists" addressed later in this blog. The perception and
concern is that violence is increasing. In a 1993 survey of 720
school districts nationwide, 82% reported an increase in violence
in their school over the past five years (Harvard School of Public Health). In a
1993 survey of student's grades 6-12, 79% said that violence was caused by "stu-
pid things like bumping into someone." Other causes of violence included:
boyfriend-girlfriend disputes, outsiders, racism, and gangs
(National School Safety Center).
Suicides are Growing
The tragic suicides in media reports has warranted alarms locally
and nationally about safety in public and private schools.
Nationally students as young as 15 years old have committed
suicide because of bullying from physical abuse to cyber. One of
the most notable is Jeffrey Johnston who took his life in 2004
after being bullied. Debbie Johnston the mother of Jeffrey stated
"Everybody is recognizing that bullying isn't a rite of passage,
it's not a part of childhood, and it doesn't build character."
As a result the Act "Jeffrey Johnston Stand Up for All Students
Act" was created. The Act requires districts to adopt new anti-bullying
policies and spells out that those policies must address
"cyberbullying"; taunts and harassing messages delivered by


computer, cell phone or other technology.On a local scale, Duval County does not
have the perceived dilemma as other parts of the nation, but records are not kept
so there is no hard data to support numbers.

"Now Gulf seafood is coming back on the menu, so come on down, we're open for business."
Bryan Zar
Co-owner, Restaurant des Families
Crown Point, LA

I grew up bussing tables at this restaurant. Last year, my wife, Brooke, and I bought it. We
were working hard to build a business, then the spill hit. BP said they would try to make
things right. But how was an energy company going to help our restaurant?

Keeping Businesses Open
We figured they would tell us to take a number and wait in line. Instead, they asked us if
we could serve food to the workers, engineers, scientists, and local residents they had
hired to cleanup the spill. It kept us busy round the clock. And we weren't the only ones.
They hired a lot of local businesses and kept a lot of people working. They have kept
businesses up and down the Gulf open and it's still making a difference.

Open for Business
BP asked us to share our story with you to keep you informed. Our restaurant's open six
days a week. Customers are filling our restaurant again and we think it's a good time to
come down to the Gulf Coast. And if we could make just one request, please think of us
when planning your next vacation. We're still here and while it's been tough, we are still
cooking. And we are just one of the hundreds of great places ready to welcome you when
you come down. So don't wait. We're looking forward to seeing you.

Gamecocks Gouge Gators For
The SEC Eastern Division
Championship Title 36-14

In front of 90,000 plus fans in Ben Hill
Griffin Stadium in Gainesville, FL on
November 13, 2010; the South Carolina
Gamecocks dominated the Florida Gators
to earn their first trip ever to the SEC
Championship with a 36-14 win.
The first play of the game, the
Gators' Andre Debose took the opening
kickoff 99-yards for a Gator touchdown
and the lead with only just under a minute
into the game. And the rest of the game
was devoted to the Gamecocks rolling up
the score on the Gators.
The Gamecocks responded with a
49-yard field goal from Spencer Lanning.
And with only 2:36 left in the 1st quarter
the Gamecocks phenomenal running
back, Marcus Lattimore, scored a touch-
down on a 7-yard scamper with 2:26
showing on the game clock. At the end of
the 1st quarter the score was: Gators 7;
Gamecocks 10.
The Gamecocks added 47-yard
and 41-yard field goals by Lanning in the
2nd quarter to notch the score at the half
with Gators 7, Gamecocks 15.
In the 3rd quarter, Gamecocks
Lattimore ripped off a 21-yard run to add
another touchdown to pad the lead;
Gamecocks 22, Gators 7.
In the 4th quarter, another
Gamecock 8-yard touchdown run by
Stephen Garcia put the game on ice essen-


tially. The Gators Chris Rainey broke a
26-yard pass from Jordan Reed for a
touchdown with 7:12 left to play in the
game but the Gamecocks had the last
score of the night with another touchdown
by Marcus Lattimore from 11-yards out to
close out the game. Final score:
Gamecocks 36, Gators 14.
South Carolina's head coach,
Steve Spurrier, was responsible for nam-
ing Ben Hill Griffin Stadium "The
Swamp" during his tenure as the Florida
Gators head coach. During his Florida
Gator days, Spurrier-led teams were 63-5
in Gainesville.
Spurrier quipped, "Sometimes the
Gamecocks get out alive" in response to
The Swamps motto "Where only Gators
get out alive" after the upset win in
Gainesville.
Meyer's quote and understate-
ment was, "We just didn't execute. We're
just not very good."
The Gators (6-4, 4-4 SEC) finish
this year's home season versus
Appalachian State Mountaineers (9-1, 7-1
Southern) on Saturday, November 20,
2010 in Gainesville with a 12:30 PM EST
kickoff. The game will be carried on pay
per view only.
The Mountaineers come off a 43-
13 drubbing of the Wofford Terriers and
in the process have clinched the Southern
leagues automatic NCAA Division I play
off bid. They also tie the conference
record for their sixth SoCon champi-
onship. The Mountaineers tend to score
early and often so the Gator defense must
be ready to avenge the Gamecock loss and
shut down the Mountaineers early.


Jaguars-Texans
Fortuitous ricochet rallies Jags past Texans

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Mike Thomas caught a 50-yard touchdown pass from David
Garrard that Houston Texans defensive back Glover Quin batted into the receiver's hands
on the final play in regulation, giving the Jacksonville Jaguars a 31-24 victory Sunday.
The game looked as if it was going to overtime, but Garrard heaved a pass
toward the end zone with no time on the clock. Quin, who was burned all afternoon, tried
to bat the ball to the ground. Instead, he knocked it right to Thomas.
Thomas, who was trailing behind the pass and looking for a ricochet, caught it at
the 1-yard line, then stepped across the goal line for the winner.
The Jaguars (5-4) went into a frenzy and even drew a celebration penalty that
couldn't be enforced. The Texans (4-5) trudged off the field in disbelief. It was Houston's
Third consecutive loss, dropping it from the top
of the AFC South to the bottom.

ed by nearly 300 faculty, staff and students anticipating an
introduction of the new president-elect by Charles W. George,
chairman of the Board of Trustees.
After being introduced to the campus family, Dr.
Lewis expressed his appreciation to the Board for their confi-
dence in his leadership and stewardship, and his enthusiasm to
instill confidence and competence in each prospective Florida
Memorial graduate. "I see a diamond in the rough in Florida
Memorial University, and I am confident that the institution
can be the greatest institution it can be," he stated.
Dr. Lewis has served as dean and professor in the
College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at Florida
A&M University (FAMU) in Tallahassee, Florida for the past
fifteen years. As a former interim president of FAMU, he also
served as dean of the Texas Southern University College of
Pharmacy and Health Sciences for four years. Dr. Lewis is the
past president of the Minority Health Professions Foundation
(MHPF) and the Association of Minority Health Professions
Schools (AMHPS). Under his leadership, the two organiza-
tions secured over $100 million in support of programs
improving the quality of education and availability of health
care to underserved communities.
Dr. Lewis is also the former chairman of the board of
the Florida Education Fund, the nation's largest producer of
African-American Ph.D.'s. After graduating from FAMU with
a bachelor of science degree in pharmacy from the program
where he now serves as dean, he earned a doctor of pharmacy
degree from Mercer University Southern School of Pharmacy
in Atlanta, Georgia and completed his post-doctoral studies at
Harvard University's Institute for Educational Management.


i-AMU's Division of Grapnic
Communication Earns Reaccreditation
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Florida A&M
University (FAMU) School of Journalism and
Graphic Communication Division of Graphic
Communication has earned reaccreditation.
"We are so pleased to learn that the
Accrediting Council for Collegiate Graphic
Communications (ACCGC) has voted to reac-
credit our Division of Graphic Communication,"
said James Hawkins, Ph.D., dean of the FAMU
School of Journalism and Graphic
Communication. "This designation indicates that
our programs have demonstrated a commitment
to the criteria essential to providing our students
a high education and serving the dynamic graph-
ic communications industry."
FAMU is one of only eight baccalaureate-
level graphic communications-related programs
in the nation to earn the ACCGC's seal of
approval. The revisitation report stated, "It was
obvious the faculty and administration worked
hard during the past two years at improving the
School of Journalism and Graphic
Communication. The faculty within the Division
of Graphic Communication expressed a positive
view of the future and appreciation for the colle-
gial work done in the past. All involved with this
improvement should be commended for their fine
work."
This reaccreditation period runs through
Aug. 31, 2014.
The School of Journalism and Graphic
Communication was founded in 1982. Its
Division of Graphics was initially accredited in
2002 and is the first at a historically black univer-
sity to be nationally accredited by ACCGC. The
Division of Graphic Communication offers three
tracks: graphic design, print management and
photography. The Division of Journalism was the
first journalism program at a historically black
university to be nationally accredited by the
Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism
and Mass Communications.

Lowe's Donates $500,000 to UNCF
Campaign for Essential Student Aid to
Help Students Graduate
FAIRFAX, Va., Nov. 16, 2010 /PRNewswire-
USNewswire/ -- UNCF the United Negro
College Fund the nation's largest and most
effective minority education organization, has
received a $500,000 grant from Lowe's and the
Lowe's Charitable and Educational Foundation
(LCEF) for the Campaign for Essential Student
Aid (CESA).
Funding will help students at UNCF's 39
member historically black colleges and universi-
ties complete their senior year and receive their
college degrees.
"We are grateful for Lowe's generous gift
and for their commitment to education," said
Michael L. Lomax, Ph.D., UNCF president and
CEO. "These students have done everything in
their power to graduate. Now, they have come to
the last mile and need help crossing the finish
line. We encourage communities across America
to follow in Lowe's footsteps and help these stu-
dents get the education they need."
As the recession lingers, many students at
UNCF schools continue to find themselves in
financially vulnerable positions. Unemployment
and pay cuts still reduce families' financial sup-
port for their children's education. The credit
crunch still keeps private student loans off the
market. And students still come up short of the
funds they need to cover tuition and room and
board balances.
"Lowe's commitment to improving com-
munities begins by supporting organizations that
give students the resources to become tomorrow's
employees, homeowners and community lead-
ers," said Larry Stone, chairman of Lowe's
Charitable and Educational Foundation. "By sup-
porting organizations like UNCF, Lowe's is con-
tributing to a cause that is important to our cus-
tomers and employees and invests in helping stu-
dents achieve their fullest potential by complet-
ing their college degrees."
Individuals, corporations and foundations
can help thousands of students finish the fall
semester by contributing to the Campaign For
Essential Student Aid. To make a donation, visit
www.uncf.org and click on Campaign for
Essential Student Aid or call Francene Walker,
UNCF Director of Individual and Planned Giving
at 703-205-3569 to help keep kids in college.


Since its founding, UNCF has helped
350,000 students earn degrees from its 39 mem-
ber colleges and universities. Today, 55,000 stu-
dents attend UNCF member institutions each
year.

Innocent Teen Stomped To Death
Four young men now stand accused for the senseless
death of a fellow teen.
Bobby Tillman, 18, a student well-loved by his family
and friends, died from massive chest injuries after he was
* beaten so badly his broken bones punctured his heart.
The heinous incident occurred during a party in Dou-
glasville on Saturday, November 6. Nearly one hundred peo-
ple stood by and did nothing as Bobby, who happened to be
in the wrong place at the wrong time, was stomped on and
beaten into bloody unconsciousness.
Douglas County Chief Deputy Stan Copeland said in-
vestigators believed the four suspects arrested were the only Mother and Daughter Receive Prison Time
people responsible for Tillman's death. for Hit-and-Run


"We are pretty confident that we have the four people involved and they were the only four in-
volved," said Copeland.
According to Copeland, eyewitness accounts combined with jailhouse interviews of the four
teens involved would be reviewed by investigators.
"One eyewitness can be wrong but ten eyewitnesses it lessens the field a lot. These young men
have an up hill battle,"Copeland said.
Douglas County District Attorney David McDade said he would examine the television inter-
views and use them in court.
"A jury, when this case goes to trial, will have the opportunity thanks to interviews you all did,
to evaluate demeanor of the defendants in a way that they rarely get to see," McDade said.
In the meantime, McDade and the grieving family made a public plea for video evidence of the
crime, as amateur cell phone videos of neighborhood fights have grown in popularity in the last few
years.
McDade said, "I would encourage your viewers, if they know of any cellphone video come for-
ward and let us know."
According to McDade, the death penalty in this case was possible, but he has not yet deter-
mined whether or not he will seek it.
Mario's Mother Drops Assault
Charges
It appears that Mario does not have any more legal
troubles to worry about for the time being.
His mother, Shawntia Hardaway, just dropped all
charges against him after claiming he pushed her 8 feet
into a wall. Struggling with a heroin addiction, Hard-
away claimed that she was angry and under the influ-
ence of drugs when she filed the false report on Mario.
Mario, who is glad that he has been vindicated
vowed continued support for his mother.


The air in the Atlanta courtroom was thick with regret
when the 24-year-old Atlanta woman who fled the scene after
causing a crash that killed five people on Easter 2009 was handed
a 50-year prison sentence. The judge who sentenced her said it
was her flight from the crime scene and her mother's ensuing
cover-up that were the deciding factors in her case.
Judge Kimberly M. Esmond Adams ordered a tearful
Aimee Michael to serve 36 years in prison with the rest on proba-
tion and added that Michael is permanently banned from obtain-
ing a Georgia driver's license for her starring role in the crash that
destroyed three families. Three children were among the dead in
two cars on Camp Creek Parkway onApril 12, 2009. Up until that
moment, Michael, a recent college graduate from a stable family,
had had a promising future.
Judge Adams, her voice wavering and her eyes filling
with tears said, "It was by far the most tragic case I have ever
seen."
On Monday, a jury convicted Michael of causing a crash
that forced a Mercedes to spin out of control into oncoming traf-
fic, resulting in a head-on collision with a Volkswagen Beetle. An
entire family was killed in the Mercedes, and a little girl died in the
Volkswagen.
Things took a terrible turn when Michael, assisted by her
mother, Sheila, fled and tried to cover up her role by arranging re-
pairs to the BMW she had been driving. Her mother pleaded guilty
on October 15 to helping with the cover-up.
The judge showed even less mercy to the mother; she sen-
tenced Sheila Michael to the maximum eight years in prison for
failing to turn her daughter in to police -- more than even prose-
cutors had recommended.

-- It Could Save Yo


iur Life )


In daylight hours, refresh your memory with
these tips on what to do in an emergency situa-
tion. This is for you and for you to share with your
daughter, your sister, your children and everyone
you know. It never hurts to be careful!

1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do : The elbow is the
strongest point on your body. If you are close
enough to use it, do so!

2. If a robber demands your wallet and/or
purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO THEM.
Toss it away from you..... chances are that they
are more interested in your wallet and/or purse
than you. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER
DIRECTION!

3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of
a car, kick out the back tail lights, stick your
arm out of the hole and begin waving like
crazy. The driver won't see you, but everybody
else will. This has saved lives.

4. Women have a tendency to get into their
cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just
sitting (balancing their checkbook, making a list,
etc.) DON'T DO THIS! The predator will be
watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity
for them to get in on the passenger side, put a gun
to your head and tell you where to go. AS SOON
AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR, LOCK
THE DOORS AND LEAVE.


5. If someone is in the car with a gun to
your head, DO NOT DRIVE OFF.
Repeat: DO NOT DRIVE OFF! Instead
gun the engine and speed into anything,
wrecking the car. Your air bag will save you.
If the person is in the back seat, they will get
the worst of it. As soon as the car crashes, get
out and run. It is better than having them find
your body in a remote location.

6. A few notes about getting into your car
in a parking lot or parking garage:
A.) Be aware. Look around you,
look into your car, at the passenger side floor,
and in the back seat.
B.) If you are parked next to a big van,
enter your car from the passenger door. Most
serial killers attack their victims by pulling them
into their vans while the victims are attempting to
get into their cars.
C.) Look at the car parked on the driver's
side of your vehicle and the passenger side. If a
male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car,
you may want to walk back into the building and
get a guard or policeman to walk you back out. IT
IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN
SORRY (and better paranoid than dead).

7. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of
the stairs.
Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and
the perfect crime spot. This is especially true at
NIGHT!

8. If the predator has a gun and you are not
under his control, ALWAYS RUN!
The predator will only hit you (a running tar-
get) 4 in 100 times; even then, it most likely
WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN, preferably in
a zig-zag pattern!

9. Use sympathy with extreme discretion -
if you're not careful, it could get you raped or
killed.
Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-look-


ing, well-educated man, who ALWAYS preyed on
the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He
walked with a cane or a limp, and often asked 'for
help' into his vehicle, which is when he abducted
his next victim.

10. If you are home alone at night and hear
a baby crying outside your door, do not open
it.
Police have recently released reports in which
women who had been home alone called in a pos-
sible abandoned baby. In each case, the women
were told, "Whatever you do, DO NOT open the
door". The police believed that a serial killer has
a baby's cry recorded and uses it to coax women
out of their homes with the belief that someone
has dropped off a baby. Although this has not
been verified, the "Crying Baby Theory" was


mentioned on "America's Most Wanted" when
they profiled a serial killer in Louisiana.

11. If you wake up in the middle of the night
to hear all your taps outside running or what you
think is a burst pipe, DO NOT GO OUTSIDE!
These people turn on all your outside taps full
blast so that you will go out to investigate and
then attack.

Bottom Line: stay alert, keep safe and look
out for your neighbors!

ssSHH! From Actual Police Reports

Did You Hear About?...





ASSAULT/BATTERY On November 1, an officer was dispatched to an apartment complex regarding a battery.
According to the report, the female victim told police that the male suspect had come by her apartment for a brief visit,
walking right in to sit on her couch as the victim kept her front door open due to a lack of air conditioning.
The victim stated that the suspect, who the officer observed was clearly disturbed, had been constantly entering and ex-
iting the victim's apartment for several hours that night. She went on to say that around midnight she asked him to leave. He
began to go out of the door, then suddenly whipped around and pushed his way back in.
The suspect then seized the victim by the neck and began chocking her; the victim told police that she felt as if she was
blacking out. She resisted, kicking against his legs and torso while trying to scream as he attempted to pull her pants off.
At some point during the struggle, the suspect released his hold on her neck by throwing her down on the floor. Each time
she attempted to get up, he pushed her back down, causing injuries to both of the victim's knees and her jaw.
The suspect then dropped to his knees and began crawling across the floor, making comments that the victim and her mother were going to be dead. Some
time later, he sat back down on the couch where he eventually fell asleep. The victim was 7 months pregnant. When police attempted to question the subject be-
fore arresting him, he stated, "I plead the fifth".

BURGLARY On Tuesday, October 5, a victim reported a burglary to their residence, stating that someone had pushed in a window air conditioning unit and en-
tered their home. $400 in cash, as well as a 32-inch LCD television were taken from the scene before the suspect or suspects exited by the front door. Police re-
sponded and three fingerprints were recovered from the crime scene; these were submitted for processing.
One print recovered fromt the air conditioning unit inside of the victim's house was identified to the 20-year-old suspect
that a JSO police officer made contact with on Monday, November 1. The suspect was already in jail for unrelated burglary charges.
After being ready his Miranda rights, the suspect agreed to speak to police about the burglary; he admitted that he had been
with two accomplices, but also stated that he did not know their legal names.
The suspect said that one of his accomplices pushed the air conditioning unit through the window before the suspect climbed
through, touching the unit when he landed inside of the house. He went on to say that his involvement was minimal, stating that he
did not know what was stolen and all he did was open the front door for their escape. One of his accomplices apparently gave him
$100 for his assistance.
The suspect told police that he had taken part in six burglaries with these two accomplices but would not give further de-
tails about their identities. He also declined to make a written statement. Charges of burglary were added to his record.

DRIVING WITHOUT LICENSE On Monday, November 1, a 41-year-old man was arrested in an apartment complex for knowingly operating a vehicle with-
out a driver's license. When the man was questioned by police, he told them that his license had not been suspended or revoked, but he had in fact never been is-
sued one in his entire life.
The amused officer took the local resident into custody immediately. Since this was the man's first offense, the bond amount was set at $355.

FAILURE TO PAY CHILD SUPPORT A local Jacksonville man was recently found in contempt of court for failure to pay child support.
A police officer was dispatched to the 500 block of Adams Stret in reference to serving a warrant, and to make an arrest on a 28-year-old male suspect for
late child support payments. Upon arrival, police officer made contact with the suspect. The suspect was read his rights, arrested,
taken to jail, and booked on "civil" charges. The suspect was sentenced to 60 days in county jail. He may purge the infraction from
his record by paying a $500 fine.

ASSAULT WITH A DEADLY WEAPON Police responded to a 911 emergency call on Alden Road, where a male victim was
brutally stabbed by a male suspect.
According to reports, the two men had been first engaged in a verbal altercation before the suspect brought out a knife and pro-
ceeded to stab the victim. It is unknown whether or not the incident was drug related.
The victim was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was placed intensive care. The suspect was read his Miranda rights and ar-
rested. He was later charged with a felony.

Those Legs Were Made for Walking
Things were looking up for Frank Singleton, 21, as he was released from jail. However, when he realized that he
didn't have a ride home, he walked straight into the prison parking lot and attempted to carjack a woman. He was
foiled when he realized that he couldn't drive a stick-shift car. As he was re-arrested -- this time, for felony car-
jacking -- Singleton told police that he simply "didn't feel like walking."





Now Hiring
28-year-old Demetrius Robinson wanted to rob a Golden Pantry store late one night, but he needed to pass the
time as naturally as possible until he and the clerk were alone. He decided to fill out a job application. Not a bad
idea, except he left his real name on the application, along with his uncle's phone number. After he robbed the
store, it didn't take long for police to track him down. Needless to say, he didn't get the job.



Billion Dollar Dummy
Rule #1 of trying to cash a bogus check: make it out for a reasonable amount. Charles Ray Fuller, 21, broke that
rule and all conventions of common sense when he tried to cash a check for $360 BILLION DOLLARS. To top it
off, the check wasn't even made out to him. He was arrested on forgery charges.




Let's face it dumb or smart, there are criminals everywhere. The best defense is a good offense: a solid strategy and being smarter than the
bad guy (or dumb one).

* Invest in a home security system and keep it on and monitored 24/7/365.
* Make sure it has glass break sensors, monitors doors, windows and has motion sensors.
* Be sure to protect basement windows all the way up to the highest level windows and porch doors for maximum home safety.
* Install at least a 4-16 cameras surveillance system that can be accessed from the web and has full night vision.
* Remove or lock up exterior ladders preventing the bad guy from gaining access.
* Lock all doors and windows when you are home and away, especially at night and in the summer months, too.

Two JSO Officers Resign After
Internal Affairs Investigation

Sheriff John Rutherford recently announced that the Jack-
sonville Sheriff's Office has concluded its internal affairs investi-
gation of two of the five officers' response to the March 26th armed
bank robbery and carjacking, where the armed robber/carjacker Jer-
emiah Mathis was killed by police, and a young child and his mother
in the car were injured by gunfire.
The State Attorney's Office cleared the five officers of any
criminal wrong doing in June. This entity investigates all officer-
involved shootings and found no violation of criminal law or crim-
inal intent by officers. By the end of the investigation, and based on
the determination of no criminal wrongdoing, the JSO was able to
convene its Response to Resistance (RTR) board hearing. (Garrity
vs New Jersey, 1967)
The RTR board hearing, held in June and open to the pub-
lic, determined that Lt. Jesse York, Officer Jason Lederman, and Of-
ficer Richard Santoro all acted within policy guidelines and they
were returned to their regular police duties.
Also at the June hearing, that same board recommended
that the actions of Officers Ryan Black and Darries Griffith be re-
ferred to Internal Affairs for an investigation into whether or not
their actions were within the guidelines of the agency's policies.
Both Griffith and Black fired their guns multiple times at
Mathis as he carjacked a vehicle occupied by a woman and two
small children, at a Wendy's drive thru window, located on
Baymeadows Road.
Mathis was attempting to escape police apprehension fol-
lowing an armed bank robbery he committed just minutes earlier, at
a nearby Wachovia Bank, by carjacking the car and taking its three
occupants hostage at gunpoint.
The two officers continued firing as the car occupied by
Mathis and his three hostages moved forward in the restaurant's
drive thru lane.
The Sheriff's review of the internal affairs investigation de-
termined that because the two officers did not act with any certainty
about the presence of the three innocent hostages, they did not use
reasonable caution necessary to avoid unnecessarily endangering
the lives of others during the discharge of their firearms.
The review of the investigation also concluded that officers
Black and Griffith failed to use reasonable caution by shooting at a
car that was in motion which caused them to continually move their
point of aim, putting other officers and citizens in a position to be
exposed to the gunfire.
It was later determined that 2 year old Daniel Crichton, re-
strained in a car seat in the backseat of the vehicle, was shot by one
of Black's 24 fired rounds. The child's mother also sustained a gun-
shot wound. The child and his mother survived their injuries.


Increase in Reports of Stolen Air Conditioning

Units

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is experiencing an increase in reports ol
stolen air conditioning units from the exteriors of residences, commercial properties.
and industrial locations city wide, in all patrol zones.
In this pattern we are seeing vacant apartments and closed businesses targetec
for these thefts. Additionally, other targeted properties include locations where the
thief (thieves) are not in plain view, and can be concealed while removing the unit.
The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office needs your help. Please report any suspi-
cious activity, suspicious persons or people, or trucks you see during non-traditiona]
business hours carrying air conditioning units. You can call JSO at 630-0500 or Crime
Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS (to remain anonymous and become eligible for a re-
ward).
"Obviously this is a crime that represents a significant economic impact tc
the people whose homes or businesses are hit," said Michael Bruno, JSO's Assistani
Chief
of Crimes Against Property. "We want the public to continue to work with the police
and let us know when something just doesn't "seem" right in your neighborhood oi
near your business," he said.
"We'd also like to ask the community to assist us in helping our houses ol
worship, because many of those properties can go for several days with very little oi
no activity. So when you're driving around out there, keep an eye out around the
houses of worship in your area." Bruno said.

Some theft prevention techniques gaining popularity include:

- Digital cameras mounted outside the home, business or church
- GPS devices inside the unit
- Metal caging around the exterior of the air conditioning unit.

If you would like to find out if your neighborhood (or business area) has a watch
group already in service to the community, or you are interested in starting one,
please contact JSO's Community Affairs division at 630-2160.

Female Thieves on the Loose
Two women armed with handguns held up another woman as she was leaving her
home on the Westside, police informed the press.
The victim told police that she had opened the garage door and saw the two women
on the sidewalk outside her home on Shelby Creek Road West, south of Normandy Boule-
vard.
According to the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office, she said as she was getting into her ve-
hicle, the women ran into her garage, pointed guns at her and forced her to go back inside.
The women reportedly demanded money from the victim and assaulted her, tying
her wrists and ankles together with electrical cords ripped from nearby appliances.
The victim was able to provide descriptions of the two suspects for a composite
sketch artist.
If you know anything that can help find the suspects, call our partner First Coast
Crime Stoppers at 866-845-TIPS (8477).

Robbers At Large in Nassau County

According to the Nassau County police, the Pizza Hut on South 8th Street in
Fernandina Beach was robbed by two suspects Tuesday evening soon after closing.
Two employees called 911, saying they had been robbed by two men as they
left the store after it closed. When they couldn't get the safe open, two robbery sus-
pects decided to get what they could from their victims.
The employees told police that one of the men had a gun and the other said he
also had one. The suspects forced the employees back into the store and told them to
open the safe.Once the they convinced them the time-lock safe couldn't be opened,
they said the suspects demanded their personal possessions, then ran off.
Deputies were heading to the restaurant when a witness called about a suspi-
cious person in a nearby area. One deputy found the person who matched the sus-
pect's description and reported that he ran when he saw the deputy. He was quickly
apprehended after a footchase through the local neighborhood.
In the suspect's clothing the deputy found several of the items reported stolen
by the store employees, and upon tracing the path the chase had followed, the deputy
also found a gun.
Deputies are still searching for the second suspect.


Man Killed In Game Store Burglary
40-year-old Adrian Tyrone was shot twice and later
died from his wounds after he tried to fend off two robbers try-
ing to tie him up when he entered the Game Stop on Dogwood
Drive, according to police.
Two men in connection with the robbery were later ar-
rested. Their charges have now been upgraded to murder since
the victim's death in the hospital, when the doctors could not
stop the bleeding.
Authorities are investigating whether the men are the
same ones who stole from the video game stores in DeKalb and
Gwinnett recently. They also are looking for a third and possi-
bly a fourth person in connection with the incident.
Giovannte Maddox, 27, and Demarkus Lamar
Williams, 25, were arrested Thursday after authorities from
Conyers and Rockdale chased them through the woods that
served as a border between the GameStop store and a stolen car
they were going to use to drive away, Police Chief Gene Wil-
son said.
Authorities think either Maddox or Williams shot the victim.
The men, both from Atlanta, were charged with armed
robbery, and Wilson said police think they are the same men
who robbed GameStop stores in nearby counties.
"There are a lot of similarities between the crimes,"
Wilson told WSB Radio. According to Wilsdon, the store at-
tendant was tied up in other robberies.
Police were called to the GameStop store in the 1300
block of Dogwood Drive after someone called 911 to report a
shooting, Wilson said. Officers arrived to find a man shot inside
the store and two others running from the business, he said.
According to police, the suspects entered the store,
locked the front door, pulled guns and then took the store clerk
to the back of the store and tied him up, WSB Radio said.
The men were in the process of taking money and
video games when a customer -- the victim-- walked up and
knocked on the door.
The robbers let the victim inside before trying to tie
him up. When the customer resisted, the men shot him in the
hand and in the chest.
Wilson told WSB Radio that Snow was flown to Grady
Memorial Hospital and immediately was taken into surgery.
Meanwhile, authorities were looking for a third man in
connection with the robbery, searching the drain system that
runs underneath the shopping center, WSB Radio said.
The two suspects have be subsequently charged with
two counts of armed robbery; kidnapping; two counts of ag-
gravated assault; aggravated battery; obstruction and posses-
sion of a firearm during a crime.
