It has been less than a month that the family of Makia Coney who was killed by her classmates in February 2010 mourned her death as they met with attorneys regarding the matter. Again, the family is facing an unexpected death as Makias cousin, Tommie Lee Terrence-Jenkins, 30, was shot in the head while inside a house in the 7600 block of Bronson. According to family, he was at a party and someone came in and shot him around 10 p.m. Saturday. No one has been able to provide answers as to why or any possibilities regarding the shooter. The family says this is very difficult for them and are asking the community to help JSO to find the killer. There has not been an arrest. MAD DADS and Hurting Families are also asking for help. Call 866-845-8477. A family member of Vanessa Simmons, 24, reported her missing to Glynn County Police about the same time McIntosh County Office of the Sheriff discovered the body of a Black female fitting the description of Venessa Simmons about 6 p.m. on March 16 in a wooded area off Credit Hill Road, Darien. Vanessa was a resident of Brunswick and had died of multiple gunshot wounds about 24 hours prior to being located in a Toyota sedan. She is the daughter of Benjamin and Willa Simmons. The scene was processed and Samson J. Scott, 32, of Townsend was arrested. Scott has been charged with aggravated assault, murder, felony murder, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. Bishop Rudolph W.

In the same article Angela Corey is quoted saying there is no reason to alter the process when in point of fact it can be done thoroughly and comprehensively with the system in placeŽ. Nelson Cuba, president of the Fraternal Order of Police, (FOP) stated that Police enjoys widespread support from Jacksonvilles residentŽ, and there is no loss of trustŽ. Unfortunately, Angela Corey and Nelson Cuba have short memories and have forgotten or are ignoring the 2008 the Jacksonville Community Council, inc. (JCCI) 2008 Race Relations Progress Report that there is a significant number of Jacksonville residents that dont trust the police, the State Attorney or the courts. The irony of Ms. Corey and Mr. Cubas statements is that they were both on the 2008 JCCI review committee. For the record, the Jacksonville Community Council, Inc, (JCCI) Race Perception Survey, part of the annual Race Relation Progress Report, records show that in 2004, 88% of black respondents said that blacks in Jacksonville were treated less fairly in dealing with the police; 39% of white respondents agreed. In 2008, the same percentage 88% of black respondents felt that black people were treated less fairly by the police, and 55% of white respondents agreed. In addition, 47% of white respondents, 73% of black respondents, and 68% of Hispanic respondents said that Hispanic people were treated less fairly in dealing with the police. In (2004) 54% of Blacks and 37% of Whites and in (2008) 91% of Blacks and 86% of Whites believe that racial profiling is widespread in Jacksonville. In (2004) 75% of Blacks and 19% of Whites believe that Blacks did not have as good a chance as White to get fair treatment by the courts. In (2008) 57% Blacks and 19% of Whites. The perception survey is done every four (4) years. Angela Corey was endorsed and supported by the Fraternal Order of Police (FOPŽ in her run for State Attorney. In terms of the community not having lost trust in the legal system, as Mr. Cuba would have us believe; In August 2009, the Jacksonville Branch of the NAACP wrote a letter to Reprehensive Corrine Brown requesting assistance regarding: 1. The increase in the number of juveniles being direct-filed as adults. 2. The harsh sentencing practices of juveniles and adults. 3. Complaints about Judge David Goodings harsh sentencing and always following whatever the State prosecutors recommend. Also, In April 2010, the several Black organizations, including the NAACP and the SCLC, wrote a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder requesting that the Justice Department to investigate the significant number of police shootings in Jacksonville. Apparently, Angela Corey and Nelson Cuba are not interested in the perceptions of Blacks, Hispanic and 55% of Whites that dont agree with them.

That is exactly what is happening in Florida even though we are able to witness a First Coast High School teacher as the 2011 Florida Blue Duval County Teacher of the Year. She is Youmone Berrien and has been teaching for seven years. If Gov. Scott and the party of no continues on the path they have chosen, the future of America will be lost. The community must get with the teachers and those who believe in education and the future of America to prevent further damage. Many are concerned about the reading ability of our leaders, pointing out the problems Gov. Scott encountered while reading his speeches.Is that what we really want for this state and our country?

By Richard Burton, Sr. Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Cabinet on March 9, 2011 imposed a minimum five-year waiting period for felons to apply to have their rights restored, setting up a tougher standard than the state has used for years. Florida now joins Kentucky and Virginia as the only states that require felons who have completed the terms of their sentences to apply to have their rights restored. This new process is a return to post-Civil War Jim Crow laws crafted to prevent blacks from voting according to news reports. History After Reconstruction ended in 1877, African Americans ceased to hold significant political power in the South. Segregation existed but custom, rather than law, enforced it. This changed in the 1890s when the Populist Party, an agrarian movement which sought to raise farm prices and challenge the power of the banks and railroads, attempted to merge the common economic interests of poor African American and white farmers against the white Democratic party elite in the South. This elite turned to stopping the African American vote to maintain their power. The Fifteenth Amendment forbade racial restrictions on suffrage, but white supremacist used thinly disguised laws to remove African Americans from the voter rolls. These included poll taxes that poor blacks (and whites) could not pay and literacy tests. Racial violence, especially lynching, was used to discourage African Americans from voting as well as to maintain the unwritten racial and economic order that characterized the South. In addition to disfranchisement, African Americans were also subject to racist laws, known as Jim Crow legislation, which spread throughout the South in the late 1890s. Jim Crow racially segregated all public facilities, including bathrooms, hospitals, schools, and streetcars. The U.S. Supreme Court upheld segregation in the 1896 Plessy v. Ferguson case and endorsed state laws disenfranchising African Americans in the 1898 Williams v. Mississippi decision. It would be more than 60 years before African Americans would regain the voting and civil rights that Jim Crow legislation violently took from them. Many African Americans, most notably Ida Wells-Barnett, organized protests but their voices did not reach the ears of an America who was deaf to racial injustice. Ida B. Wells-Barnett remains in my heart and mind as one of Americas greatest leaders and was a fearless antilynching crusader, suffragist, women's rights advocate, journalist, and speaker. She stands as one of our nation's most uncompromising leaders and a most avid defender of democracy. If she was alive today, she would most likely say, leaders what are you doing, organize and save your children from Jim Crow, Jr. and the laws that continue to dis-enfranchise African Americans and poor people.Ž Many states are now revisiting racist laws of the past, under the guise of Three Strikes and Mandatory Minimum laws. Even though the Lt. Governor of Florida is Black, Governor Scott is following a destructive path which will continue to disenfranchise African Americans and the poor, as it relates to their right to vote.

So often you hear of men who do not take care of their children. Or, you know of those who pay their child support but do not bother to remember their visitation days or weeks. This is different for Miami Heats Dwyane Wade. He decided to fight to be in the lives of his sons. He said that all he wanted was to be a father in the lives of his children. Wades attorney said this was one of the hardest battles he had to fight. But Dwyane never gave up and he made sure he was prepared. Because of his schedule as a professional basketball player, he was afraid he would lose so, he put everything in place so that if his dream became a reality, he would be prepared. He selected a school for his boys, put in place child care and nanny care. He was ready so when the female judge awarded him his children, all he had to do was get them and be with them. And that he did. He said that the court agreed that the best place for the boys would be with their father but he did agree to make sure their mother remain a part of their lives. When the Miami Heat ended practice Sunday, Dwyane went home to his boys. The team gave him a standing ovation. PAGE B-4 THE STAR MARCH 19, 2011 URQTVU RCIG"D6""E"O"["M The Cowtown-Work to Ride team took home the gold after beating out the crew from Baltimore in the National Interscholastic Championship at the Virginia Polo Center.

Brandon Rease, of the winning team said, "If you get involved with it and want to do really good in it, you just practice every day and, a sport is a sport, no matter if it's for black, white, anything." This was the 42nd year for the tournament. The Philly team also had to beat out groups from California, Texas and Canada to be named the champions. Who knew a bunch of black kids in Philadelphia would forgo basketball and football to play polo? The Philadelphia youth polo team, the Cowtown/Work to Ride based in Fairmount Park, is an all-black team and a force to be reckoned with in the world of polo. The team won the 42nd annual USPA National Interscholastic Championship tournament over the weekend in Charlottesville, Va. "It was awesome," Cowtown/WTR Coach Lezlie Hiner told the Philadelphia Inquirer about her team's 24…17 victory over Baltimore in the title game. "We're known as a come-from-behind team, but the boys were so explosive in these games." The stars of the team are brothers Kareem Rosser, 18, and Daymar Rosser, 16, of West Philadelphia, and Brandon Rease, 15, of North Philadelphia. Kareem was named the No. 1 All-star at the competition and plans to attend Cornell after he graduates from Valley Forge Military Academy. Lezlie Hiner started the team back in 1994 with the goal of exposing the sport to underprivileged kids. In exchange for horse-riding lessons, kids would help around the barns and take care of the horses.

They clobbered UC-Santa Barbara 79-51 and along the way they looked like a team that had rediscovered excellence, and like a team that was weary of hearing about how long it had been since it won a game such as this. They played like a team whose frustrations had been uncorked and whose expectations had been unleashed. For the Gators, it was 34,680 hours since their last NCAA Tournament victory. Now, they have roughly 48 hours until they try to do it again. The final game will be played in Houston. Go Gators!

The National Keystone Conference of the Boys and Girls Club is a positive leadership experience where young adults and teens engage and socialize with their peers, explore relevant national and international issues and prepare as leaders of their respective communities. Anthony Butler, Sr. Executive Director, Cheryl Williams, RN (Sister2Sister Catering) and William Jackson, M.Ed. (DCPS and Vice President E3 North Florida Chapter) presented at the Boys and Girls Club of America Keystone Leadership Conference. An internationally and nationally recognized youth leadership conference; that addressed strategies in building community leaders, achieving academic success, how to apply for college, taking the ACT/SAT and other empowering workshops where presented by nationally recognized business leaders, respected and seasoned educators and national community activists. In attendance over 1500 young men and women from diverse racial and cultural backgrounds who traveled from all states in the continental United States of America and from military bases. These young people represented the BGCA of their respective communities and states. This annual leadership conference held in Orlando, Florida this year displayed that many youth are serious about their success in life by preparing during their teen and young adult years by attending conferences such as this. Anthony Butler, Sr. recognized as an executive business leader, supporter of entrepreneurs, advocate for youth and motivational speaker (Accuse Yourself of SuccessŽ) presented on Building Blocks (Healthy Relationships) and Education and the Arts. Each session had young people engaged in evocative and empowering dialogue. Modeling the E3 Motto, Educating, Empowering and EncouragingŽ; the skills learned will prepare these future leaders to work collaboratively in professional environments as leaders, presenters, project managers, and future CEOs, CFOs and involved in politics and community organizations. William Jackson and Cheryl Williams presentation centered on Bullying/Cyberbullying and the responsibilities of being a leader in school and community. Working to address the growing concern of bullying in schools and the community. The national attention by the media, law enforcement, and recorded data shows that this serious issue needs to be addressed by young people not just educators and law enforcement. The use/misuse of technology is a concern because of the use of cell phone technology, social media/social network sites being use to cyber-bully, threaten, socially exclude and encourage retaliation. The tragic results have been teens committing suicide or retaliating and killing or seriously injuring others that are bullying. William Jackson is a teacher in the Duval County Public Schools system, on the Executive Board of JCCI Forward and member of National Association of Black Journalists. His experience as a instructor in public education and higher education of educational technology. Mr. Jackson shared valuable and relevant information concerning higher education, employment and the dangers of inappropriate content placed on Social Media/Social Network site. Mr. Jackson and his future wife (Cheryl Williams) Blog on Jacksonville.com, NokturnalEscape.com and Seeinggrowth.com, further addressing the areas of technology, when teens post information online any where it is always accessible by future employers, when applying for higher education or entering into the military as a career. Ms. Williams and Mr. Jackson presented on Science Technology Education Medicine (STEM). There is a serious absence of minority women and men in these career choices, creating a gap in the influences that minorities have in the fields of STEM. Minority youth must seek more involvement in Science, Technology, Education, Math if they are to compete for the future jobs that require these skills. The objectives of the conference are to provide teens and young adults with a fun, safe learning environment in which the values and traditions of the National Keystone program are reinforced. Kudos to the Boys and Girls Clubs of America for their work in guiding youth to positive choices in life, preparing them for higher education and guiding youth in careers that will place young people in leadership roles that ultimately will be an influence in their respective communities. President Obama references that future leaders will be the young adults and teens of today. They must be innovators of technology, explorers of space and oceans/seas, involved in futuristic medical research and scientific discoveries in the fundamental improvement of the lives of Americans and the world.

Florida Youth Named National Epilepsy Spokesperson Ashley Irven to Visit Washington, D.C. and Meet with Lawmakers Ashley Irven, 18, of Jacksonville, FL will travel to Washington, D.C. to raise awareness about epilepsy and how it affects the life of a child experiencing seizures. Ashley will participate in the Epilepsy Foundations annual Kids Speak Up! event from March 27 through March 29, and become a part of the democratic process to make a difference for the nearly 3 million Americans coping with recurrent seizures. Ashley, a senior at Bolles School in Jacksonville, was selected to participate in Kids Speak Up! due to her commitment to volunteering with the Foundation since she was first diagnosed in 2008. Ashley started a teen support group at Bolles for other students with Epilepsy; she serves as a H.O.P.E. mentor in her efforts to be an advocate for individuals with epilepsy. Ashley just recently raised over $400 for the Foundation at her school by conducting sales of cupcakes in support of our Be a Cupcake, Buy a Cupcake for EpilepsyŽ campaign. She will be participating in the 8th Annual Jacksonville Walk for Epilepsy on April 16th at Memorial Park with the team she formed Team Carpe Diem! Ashley has a passion for speaking out about the condition as well as her own experiences. Her participation as the Speak Up Speak Out teen representative for Florida is a natural extension of her efforts on behalf of individuals with epilepsy and their families. Kids Speak Up! is a national program that rallies young ambassadors with epilepsy between the ages of 8 and 18 to become advocates in their local communities and in the nations capital. Their mission is to personally petition congressional leaders for aid in assuring better access to care, improved public education and awareness about epilepsy and more research toward a cure for epilepsy. As one of 42 Kids Speak Up! spokespersons, Ashley will participate in a three-day training to learn more about epilepsy, develop her public speaking skills, and learn the importance of advocacy. The highlight of her trip will be a meeting with her representative, Ander Crenshaws aide as well as Rep Corrine Browns aide. She will also be visiting both Senators offices to speak with aides to urge support of efforts to improve public understanding of the condition and increase aid to further research for a cure. Not many people in my neighborhood understand or even know about epilepsy,Ž said Ashley. If more doctors would learn about seizures then they could help us get better and teach other people not to be afraid of people who have them.Ž Epilepsy is the most common neurological condition in children and each year approximately 45,000 children under age 17 are diagnosed with the disorder. Despite modern therapy, about one million people in the U.S. continue to experience seizures or significant side effects from treatment for their epilepsy.

Harlem KervorkianŽ Convicted of MurderA jury returned a guilty verdict in the murder trial of a Harlem, New York man who assisted a motivational speaker with killing himself. Kenneth Minor, dubbed the Harlem KervorkianŽ for his role in the assisted-suicide, had been approached by Jeffrey Locker, a motivational speaker whose money troubles were severe enough to prompt him to cruise the streets to find someone who could help kill him and get his family $17 million in life insurance. The 36-year-old maintained that he only braced the knife against Locker's steering wheel and the victim impaled himself on the sharp weapon seven times. Locker alledgedly gave Minor his ATM card and pin number as payment for his assistance. Minors lawyer was not able to convince the jury that his clients actions were protected under the state's "assisted suicide" exemption. He now faces up to 25 years for his role in the murder and will be sentenced on April 4th. C&J1 C M Y K Crime and Justice Crime and JusticeA Publication of the Florida Star and Georgia Star March 19, 2011THE STARVol. 1, No. 17 Serial Killer Case Leads Police to Copycat KillerA Cleveland man who is currently incarcerated for murder has been indicted on multiple counts of the same crime. 50-year-old Joseph Harwell, who is already serving 15 years to life in prison for the strangling death of Teresa Vinson in Columbus in 1997, was charged with raping and killing 27-year-old Mary Thomas in 1989, and 33year-old Tondilear Harge in 1996, based on evidence found in cold case files. The cold case unit investigators looked at nearly 100 unsolved murders in a three-mile radius of where Anthony Sowell, another known serial killer, had lived. DNA evidence found on victim Thomas surprisingly led police to Harwell instead. He had beaten and strangled the woman, who was three months pregnant when she died. Harges body was found in an empty lot near Sowells home, but Harwells DNA was matched to her crime as well. Harwell has a long criminal history dating back to the 1970s, including a conviction for felonious assault in 1989, when he attempted to strangle a woman who survived. Harwell is eligible for parole in 2012.

Look Out for Fake Disaster Aid ScamsUsing email scams and fake websites, criminals use natural disasters like hurricanes and earthquakes, to try to defraud the public into making donations to fake charitable organizations. Before you make a donation to any solicitation, you may want to consider these guidelines suggested by the FBI: € Do not respond to any email sent from someone you do not know personally. € Don't click on links in unsolicited email, because they could contain a virus. € Be skeptical of anyone who represents themselves as a member of charitable organizations or officials asking for donations via email or social networking sites. € Watch out for copy-cat names similar to but not exactly the same as those of reputable charities. € Try to verify the legitimacy of nonprofit organizations by searching online to confirm the group's existence and nonprofit status. € Beware of e-mails that claim to show pictures of the disaster areas in attached files. Those files may contain viruses. € Make contributions directly to known organizations rather than relying on others to make the donation on your behalf. € Be cautious if someone tries to pressure you into making contributions; reputable charities do not use such tactics. € Be sure whom you are dealing with when providing your personal and financial information. Providing such information can you vulnerable to identity theft. € Avoid cash donations. Pay by credit card or write a check directly to the charity. Your Safety Your Safety DOMESTIC VIOLENCE Police were dispatched to 7844 S. Knoll Dr. in Jacksonville in reference to a domestic dispute. The victim informed police that she had recently separated from the suspect, who is her former boyfriend and is also the father of her child. The suspect allegedly came to her house and began harassing the victim, yelling at her about a vehicle that was parked in front of her residence and trying to force his way inside of her home to search for another man. The victim went on to say that she had moved on since her breakup with the suspect and did not want him inside her house. She barred the suspects way and the two began to struggle. The suspect then put his hands on the victims shoulders and shoved her out of the way. He went inside against her wishes, making threats to hurt her if she tried to stop him again. An officer also interviewed a witness at the home, who claimed to have seen the suspect push the victim out of the way and force his way inside the residence. They told police that they also heard the suspect make the threats the victim had relayed to officers. While police conducted the investigation, the suspect continually called to harass the victim, saying that he would return to her house as soon as the police left the scene. There were no visible injuries on the victims person, so an evidence technician was not called. Police patrol will follow up on the case.

Georgia Teen Nabbed For Multiple Home BurglariesA teenager found himself in police custody on suspicion of two home burglaries that took place in September and November. DNA evidence collected at the crime scenes of both homes led police to 17-year-old Donberneat Lanier of Kingsland, GA. Investigators were able to determine that the suspect forced his way into each of the homes to steal items inside. As he was being interviewed, Lanier freely confessed to the burglaries. Lanier is charged with two felony counts of burglary and was booked into the Camden County Jail in Woodbine. Florida Doctor Pleads Guilty To Child PornA former Jacksonville doctor pleaded guilty Monday to downloading child pornography. 45-year-old Robert Davis Williams admitted to receiving sexually explicit images and videos of children on his computer before a judge in U.S. District Court. According to authorities, the Sheriffs Office received a complaint in late 2009 about possible child pornography at Williams home and began to investigate. When Williams was caught, police were appalled to find not only digital child pornography on Williams computer, but also 41 videotapes, 697 compact discs and DVDs, 62 floppy disks and two zip drives in the house and garage. Williams had completed a medical residency at Shands Jacksonville in June 2009, but a hospital representative stated that he had not been affiliated with the hospital or the University of Florida for some time. In addition to his courtroom admission, Williams was also recorded during a phone call, during which he admitted to downloading the illegal material and apologized for what he called his sicknessŽ. Although a sentencing date has not been set, Williams faces up to 20 years in federal prison.

Edward Gilbert, 20, and Lloyd Sams, 19, both of Kingsland, had already been out on bond on previous theft-related charges when they were picked up by police.

They mistook a car wash coin deposit for the bank vault deposit. When the dynamite exploded, hundreds of coins shot out like a shotgun blast, injuring the robbers. They were stunned long enough for police to arrive and arrest them. Hes Still UnemployedA man went into a hardware store in Homosassa, FL to apply for a job. After completing his application, he went to the section of the store that sold guns and asked to see a couple of them. After the attendant left for a moment, the guy grabbed the guns and ran off.

2nd Family Member Killed
S" It has been less than a month that the
family of Makia Coney who was
killed by her classmates in February
2010 mourned her death as they met
S with attorneys regarding the matter.
Again, the family is facing an unex-
pected death as Makia's cousin,
Tommie Lee Terrence-Jenkins, 30,
I a / was shot in the head while inside a
Tommie Torrence-Jenkins Makia Coney house in the 7600 block of Bronson.
According to family, he was at a party
and someone came in and shot him around 10 p.m. Saturday. No one has been able
to provide answers as to why or any possibilities regarding the shooter.
The family says this is very difficult for them and are asking the community to help
JSO to find the killer. There has not been an arrest. MAD DADS and Hurting
Families are also asking for help. Call 866-845-8477.

Brunswick Lady Found Dead in Darien
r. A family member of Vanessa
n Simmons, 24, reported her miss-
S".I ing to Glynn County Police about
Sthe same time McIntosh County
a in4 Office of the Sheriff discovered
T the body of a Black female fitting
Sr. d the description of Venessa
-a Simmons about 6 p.m. on March
16 in a wooded area off Credit Hill
Samson J. Scott, 32,
Road, Darien. Vanessa was a res- Suspect
Vanessa Simmons, 24 ident of Brunswick and had died
of multiple gunshot wounds about 24 hours prior to being
located in a Toyota sedan. She is the daughter of Benjamin and Willa Simmons.
The scene was processed and Samson J. Scott, 32, of Townsend was arrested. Scott
has been charged with aggravated assault, murder, felony murder, and possession of
a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Safety is still a concern in Jax
Candidate for mayor Audrey Moran is quoted, in the March 16th Times Union arti-
cle, that she favors the return of the judicial inquests for police shooting and it would
help restore trust between the police and the community. In the same article Angela
Corey is quoted saying "there is no reason to alter the process when in point of fact
it can be done thoroughly and comprehensively with the system in place". Nelson
Cuba, president of the Fraternal Order of Police, (FOP) stated that "Police enjoys
widespread support from Jacksonville's resident", and "there is no loss of trust".
Unfortunately, Angela Corey and Nelson Cuba have short memories and have for-
gotten or are ignoring the 2008 the Jacksonville Community Council, inc. (JCCI)
2008 Race Relations Progress Report that there is a significant number of
Jacksonville residents that don't trust the police, the State Attorney or the courts.
The irony of Ms. Corey and Mr. Cuba's statements is that they were both on the 2008
JCCI review committee.
For the record, the Jacksonville Community Council, Inc, (JCCI) Race Perception
Survey, part of the annual Race Relation Progress Report, records show that in 2004,
88% of black respondents said that blacks in Jacksonville were treated less fairly in
dealing with the police; 39% of white respondents agreed. In 2008, the same percent-
age 88% of black respondents felt that black people were treated less fairly by the
police, and 55% of white respondents agreed. In addition, 47% of white respondents,
73% of black respondents, and 68% of Hispanic respondents said that Hispanic peo-
ple were treated less fairly in dealing with the police.
In (2004) 54% of Blacks and 37% of Whites and in (2008) 91% of Blacks and 86%
of Whites believe that racial profiling is widespread in Jacksonville.
In (2004) 75% of Blacks and 19% of Whites believe that Blacks did not have as
good a chance as White to get fair treatment by the courts. In (2008) 57% Blacks and
19% of Whites. The perception survey is done every four (4) years.
Angela Corey was endorsed and supported by the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP"
in her run for State Attorney.
In terms of the community not having lost trust in the legal system, as Mr. Cuba
would have us believe; In August 2009, the Jacksonville Branch of the NAACP
wrote a letter to Reprehensive Corrine Brown requesting assistance regarding: 1. The
increase in the number of juveniles being direct-filed as adults. 2. The harsh sentenc-
ing practices of juveniles and adults. 3. Complaints about Judge David Gooding's
harsh sentencing and always following whatever the State prosecutors recommend.
Also, In April 2010, the several Black organizations, including the NAACP and the
SCLC, wrote a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder requesting that the Justice
Department to investigate the significant number of police shootings in Jacksonville.
Apparently, Angela Corey and Nelson Cuba are not interested in the perceptions of
Blacks, Hispanic and 55% of Whites that don't agree with them.

Education is still the key -That cannot change
President Obama said earlier this week that any budget that
sacrifices a commitment to education is a budget that sacri-
fices our future. That is exactly what is happening in Florida
even though we are able to witness a First Coast High School
teacher as the 2011 Florida Blue Duval County Teacher of the
Year. She is Youmone Berrien and has been teaching for
seven years.
If Gov. Scott and the party of no continues on the path they
Youmone Berrien
have chosen, the future of America will be lost.
The community must get with the teachers and those who believe in education and
the future of America to prevent further damage. Many are concerned about the
reading ability of our leaders, pointing out the problems Gov. Scott encountered
while reading his speeches.Is that what we really want for this state and our country?

Get Out and Vote

city, he has shown that he has many successful
leaders to call on for help. The mayors of Atlanta,
Alvin Brown and family stands Charlotte, N.C., Columbia, S.C. and Tallahassee
with former President Clinton in will also be at the rally from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
effort to get people out to vote. Saturday, Norwood Flea Market, 5301 Norwood.

UOV. KICK Scott ana Jim ;row, Jr.

By Richard Burton, Sr


Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Cabinet on March 9, 2011 imposed a minimum five-year waiting period for
felons to apply to have their rights restored, setting up a tougher standard than the state has used for years. Florida
now joins Kentucky and Virginia as the only states that require felons who have completed the terms of their sen-
tences to apply to have their rights restored. This new process is a return to post-Civil War Jim Crow laws craft-
ed to prevent blacks from voting according to news reports.


History
After Reconstruction ended in 1877, African Americans ceased to hold significant political power in the South.
Segregation existed but custom, rather than law, enforced it. This changed in the 1890s when the Populist Party,
an agrarian movement which sought to raise farm prices and challenge the power of the banks and railroads,
attempted to merge the common economic interests of poor African American and white farmers against the white
Democratic party elite in the South.
This elite turned to stopping the African American vote to maintain their power. The Fifteenth Amendment for-
bade racial restrictions on suffrage, but white supremacist used thinly disguised laws to remove African
Americans from the voter rolls. These included poll taxes that poor blacks (and whites) could not pay and litera-
cy tests. Racial violence, especially lynching, was used to discourage African Americans from voting as well as
to maintain the unwritten racial and economic order that characterized the South.
In addition to disfranchisement, African Americans were also subject to racist laws, known as Jim Crow legis-
lation, which spread throughout the South in the late 1890s. Jim Crow racially segregated all public facilities,
including bathrooms, hospitals, schools, and streetcars. The U.S. Supreme Court upheld segregation in the 1896
Plessy v. Ferguson case and endorsed state laws disenfranchising African Americans in the 1898 Williams v.
Mississippi decision. It would be more than 60 years before African Americans would regain the voting and civil
rights that Jim Crow legislation violently took from them.
Many African Americans, most notably Ida Wells-Barnett, organized protests but their voices did not reach the
ears of an America who was deaf to racial injustice.
Ida B. Wells-Bamett remains in my heart and mind as one of Americas greatest leaders and was a fearless anti-
lynching crusader, suffragist, women's rights advocate, journalist, and speaker. She stands as one of our nation's
most uncompromising leaders and a most avid defender of democracy.
If she was alive today, she would most likely say, "leaders what are you doing, organize and save your children
from Jim Crow, Jr. and the laws that continue to dis-enfranchise African Americans and poor people."
Many states are now revisiting racist laws of the past, under the guise of Three Strikes and Mandatory Minimum
laws.
Even though the Lt. Governor of Florida is Black, Governor Scott is following a destructive path which will
continue to disenfranchise African Americans and the poor, as it relates to their right to vote.

expositions that electrified the participants with his
words of wisdom. The Institute preacher, Elder Dr.
Willie J. Williams of Tampa, Florida challenged the
participants with words of spiritual hope and encour-
agement to hold on to their faith.
At the close of the Winter Board of Directors meet-
ing, Elder Dr. Ernest Ferrell announced that he would
seek the opportunity to serve his final tenure as
National Primitive Baptist Convention president. Dr.
Ferrell is pastor of Saint Mary Primitive Baptist
Church---Georgia Street in Tallahassee, Florida. Others

By: Lucius Gantt
At least sixty thousand African American homeowners
in Florida and surely hundreds of thousands of Black
homeowners across the country are currently facing fore-
closure proceedings initiated by banks, predatory lenders
and financial criminals.
Many of these foreclosure proceedings are bogus and
should be fought tooth and nail!
America's mortgage lenders were so greedy the mort-
gage notes of most homeowners were bought and sold so
much that the document chain of custody was broken time
and time again. Seems like every year or two homeowners
were being asked to send their mortgage payments to someone different from their
original lender.
New so-called note holders refused to obey banking laws, refused to comply
with information requests by homeowners and refused to mediate or refinance
loans for homeowners that had been victimized by pyramiding predatory mortgage
interest rates.
What can a brother and sister do to slow down this speedy, greedy foreclosure
train down?
I encourage Black homeowners to fight back, to fight fake, false and forged
mortgage documents with true, certified and recorded homeowner documents.
Let me explain. If I buy your house and give you the agreed money to pay for
it, it is still not my house until it is recorded in the court house in the county where
the home or property is located.
Just because you get a letter from an unknown mortgage company, finance com-
pany or bank that says your home is being foreclosed on for missed or late pay-
ments, it doesn't mean that you have to pay.
Yes, people can buy your mortgage note or have it assigned or transferred to
them but those note purchases, assignment and transfers must be one in accordance
with state and federal laws.
In your county court house there are records that show who is the property owner
is and who the legal note holder is on every piece of property.
If the lender you are sending your mortgage payments to is not listed on gov-
ernment property records, you may have reason not to pay them and still remain in
your home. More often than not, no existence in property and tax records means the
alleged mortgage company has "no standing" and very well may not be a legal note
holder.
To get around this necessity, predatory lenders and financial criminals oftentimes
file court documents that are falsified, forged and faked. "Robo signers" that nota-
rized documents that they never saw or signatures that they never witnessed has
caused to whole foreclosure process to be investigated by state and federal regula-
tors.
The good thing for Black homeowners is that while you are fighting foreclosure
by yourself you can also consider "strategic default" where you just stop making
payments to the predatory lenders and financial criminals. Save your money and
move somewhere else.
An ever better thing for distressed homeowners is that predatory lenders lie and
one misrepresentation leads to another lie. When you finally go to court, take a
court reporter into court with you. When they lie about false evidence you'll have
something to appeal the foreclosure case on.
Each state has their own laws about homeowner's rights to be noticed and other
rights to protect homeowners from financial criminals. There are also applicable
federal laws that protect homeowners in the U.S. Code of federal statutes. Just
"google" your state laws and federal laws for residential and/or commercial mort-
gages, study the laws and apply them to your personal case.
This fight for your mortgage and your home is nothing to play with. If you can
get an attorney to help you, please do, but get a lawyer that will fight for you and
not just rubber stamp what the financial criminals say in order to get a pay check.
All you have to do to win is find a judge that won't let banks and other lenders
violate the law and a sheriff that will not enforce evictions based on wrongful, false
documents and financial crimes.
Meanwhile, there are many internet sites you can check out that show how oth-
ers have fought to save their property from unlawful foreclosures.
Never give up! The struggle continues! (Become a fan of The Gantt Report on

EFFECTS OF ALCOHOL UPON
THE HUMAN BODY
Foods have to be digested before being absorbed by the
intestines, but alcohol does not. It is absorbed from the
stomach and small intestines and passed into the blood. The
alcohol is absorbed rapidly when it first reaches the stom-
ach, but as more alcohol is taken the rate of absorption is
slowed down. If there is food in the stomach, the passage of alcohol into the intes-
tines is reduced. The type and quantity of alcoholic beverages consumed over a
given length of time also influences the rate of absorption. From one hour to sev-
eral hours are required for the alcohol to pass from the digestive system into the
blood. During this time some of the alcohol is lost through elimination by sweat,
urine and breath. Other portions of the alcohol are lost through oxidation in tis-
sues.
Alcohol is a depressant to the central nervous system; it reduces the activities
of the brain. There is a reduction of attention, complacency toward critical atti-
tudes, minimum of discretion and control, and distortion of judgment. Alcohol
slows down the responses of eyes, hands and feet. It interferes with muscular
coordination and hinders skillful movements. Delayed reaction time results.
(Reaction time is the interval between the brain receiving a signal and responding
to the signal.) The person who has not had any alcohol requires about one-fifth of
a second to respond to a signal. After a person consumes three and a half glasses
of whiskey, his reaction time one-hour later is 34 percent slower than it was before
taking the alcohol. When the concentration of alcohol in the blood reaches .50
percent and death may follow.
The concentration of alcohol in the blood produces a variety of dramatic effects
due to the action of alcohol on the brain. Very low blood-alcohol levels results in
a state of mind sedation and relaxation. Slightly higher blood-alcohol levels pro-
duce aggressiveness and extreme activity such as talking too much. The aggres-
sive and over active behavior results from depression of the brain centers which
normally restrain this behavior. When the blood-alcohol levels are higher levels,
there is confusion, disorientation and stupor.
Alcohol causes an increased flow of digestive juices in the stomach. This may
be due to the fact that alcohol starts a chemical action as it passes through the
walls of the stomach.
The small blood vessels in the skin expand with the consumption of alcohol. This
expansion permits larger quantities of blood to flow close to the skin surface.
Body heat may be lost. In cold weather, this loss can be dangerous.
Excessive use of alcohol can cause nutritional deficiencies. Alcohol does not
contain mineral elements, protein, and vitamins A, C, or D. Cirrhosis of the liver
may result from too much alcohol.
When large amounts of alcohol have been taken, there may be a definite dis-
turbance in body chemistry which causes a hangover. A severe thirst, headache,
and fatigue are the usual signs of a hangover. Disturbance of liver functions and
the impurities found in alcohol may cause the headache. Dehydration produced
by shifting water within body cells to extracellular areas may bring about the
thirst. The fatigue may be due to loss of sleep, nutritional deficiencies, tensions,
and poor body hygiene.

Families Wait at Home
For More Than 369,000 Deployed U.S. Troops
Military Wife Has Help For Kids Who Miss Their Parents

Kat DeMille knows what it's like to wait for months for Dad to come home.
The former Navy brat grew up to become an Air Force wife, so she doesn't need
to be reminded of the 369,000 Americans who are deployed overseas, many of
them leaving behind a spouse and kids, according to U.S. Department of Defense
statistics. She's been living that drill most of her life.
"One of the most important things I learned as a kid was that it is okay to feel
sad and to miss the ones we love," said DeMille, author of the children's book I
Wish Daddy Was Here (www.iwishdaddywashere.com). "Children take their cues
from the adults who surround them, and in military families, there is always this
semblance of steely reserve. They don't want to show sadness around the kids, so
all the kids see are the brave faces, and it makes it easy for them to bottle up their
sadness or feel that missing their moms or dads is a bad thing. I had to unlearn
that misconception, and it actually helped me feel better."
DeMille believes kids should know that while it's important to move on with
their daily lives while a parent is deployed, that it's also okay to miss them and to
let their sadness out when they need to. She said that part of the message of her
children's book is that the sadness is a part of coping with the reality of modern
troop deployments.
"My husband is currently deployed right now, so my daughter and I are living
it along with every other military family," she added. "Missing a family member
is like the elephant in the room that no one wants to acknowledge. The military
life causes many families to endure extended separation. How we deal with the
time apart makes a big difference in a child's life."
One of the key parts of helping children get through the long absences of a
parent who is deployed is to get them to talk about what they are feeling, so they
can work through it faster.
"Any job that takes a parent away for an extended period is difficult on a
child," DeMille said. "Letting your children express their feelings will help them
get through the separation. Life does not stop because someone we love is away,
but that does not mean we cannot miss them. Emotions can be hard for a child to
talk about. Letting your child know that you feel sad, as well, let's them know it
is okay to have feelings and it makes them feel safe to express them to you. It
brings them a level of security and makes them feel more mature when they know
they are feeling the same thing as the adults around them. More than that, it helps


them become stronger and more capable of dealing with the demands of being in
a military family."

Daddy Was Here, contact Russ Handler at 727-443-7115 ext 206 or

The Cowtown-Work to Ride team took
home the gold after beating out the crew from
Baltimore in the National Interscholastic
Championship at the Virginia Polo Center.
A polo team from Philadelphia made histo-
ry in central Virginia on Sunday when they
became the first all African-American team to .
win a national title.
The Cowtown-Work to Ride team took
home the gold after beating out the crew from
Baltimore in the National Interscholastic
Championship at the Virginia Polo Center.I ..i:'"".i." ;.
The top polo players say it feels great to be
a part of this monumental achievement in their
sport.
Brandon Rease, of the winning team said,
"If you get involved with it and want to do real-
ly good in it, you just practice every day and, a
sport is a sport, no matter if it's for black, white,
anything."
This was the 42nd year for the tournament.
The Philly team also had to beat out groups
from California, Texas and Canada to be
named the champions.
Who knew a bunch of black kids in Philadelphia would forgo basket-
ball and football to play polo? The Philadelphia youth polo team, the
Cowtown/Work to Ride based in Fairmount Park, is an all-black team
and a force to be reckoned with in the world of polo.
The team won the 42nd annual USPA National Interscholastic
Championship tournament over the weekend in Charlottesville, Va.
"It was awesome," Cowtown/WTR Coach Lezlie Hiner told the
Philadelphia Inquirer about her team's 24-17 victory over Baltimore in
the title game. "We're known as a come-from-behind team, but the boys
were so explosive in these games."


The stars of the team are brothers Kareem Rosser, 18, and Daymar
Rosser, 16, of West Philadelphia, and Brandon Rease, 15, of North
Philadelphia. Kareem was named the No. 1 All-star at the competition
and plans to attend Comell after he graduates from Valley Forge Military
Academy.
Lezlie Hiner started the team back in 1994 with the goal of exposing
the sport to underprivileged kids. In exchange for horse-riding lessons,
kids would help around the barns and take care of the horses.


Dwyane Wade wins custody battle for his sons
So often you hear of men
who do not take care of
their children. Or, you
know of those who pay
their child support but do
not bother to remember
their visitation days or
weeks.
This is different for
Miami Heat's Dwyane
Wade. He decided to
fight to be in the lives of
his sons. He said that all he
wanted was to be a father
in the lives of his children.
Wade's attorney said this
was one of the hardest bat-
tles he had to fight. But
Dwyane never gave up and
he made sure he was prepared.
Because of his schedule as a professional basketball player, he was afraid he would
lose so, he put everything in place so that if his dream became a reality, he would be
prepared. He selected a school for his boys, put in place child care and nanny care.
He was ready so when the female judge awarded him his children, all he had to do
was get them and be with them. And that he did. He said that the court agreed that
the best place for the boys would be with their father but he did agree to make sure
their mother remain a part of their lives.
When the Miami Heat ended practice Sunday, Dwyane went home to his boys. The
team gave him a 'standing ovation.'
The Gators say they are ready

and definitely willing
After three seasons of wrong endings, after 1,444 days of accomplishing something
less, the Gators have finally won another NCAA Tournament game. They clobbered
UC-Santa Barbara 79-51 and along the way they looked like a team that had redis-
covered excellence, and like a team that was weary of hearing about how long it had
been since it won a game such as this. They played like a team whose frustrations
had been uncorked and whose expectations had been unleashed.

For the Gators, it was 34,680 hours since their last NCAA Tournament victory.

Now, they have roughly 48 hours until they try to do it again. The final game will
be played in Houston. Go Gators!

E3 LEADERSHIP PRESENTS AT BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB

CONFERENCE


The National Key-
stone Conference of the Boys
and Girls Club is a positive
leadership experience where
young adults and teens en-
gage and socialize with their
peers, explore relevant na-
tional and international issues
and prepare as leaders of their
respective communities.
Anthony Butler, Sr.
Executive Director, Cheryl
Williams, RN (Sister2Sister
Catering) and William Jack-
son, M.Ed. (DCPS and Vice
President E3 North Florida
Chapter) presented at the
Boys and Girls Club of Amer-
ica Keystone Leadership Con-
ference.
An internationally and nationally recognized
youth leadership conference; that addressed strategies
in building community leaders, achieving academic suc-
cess, how to apply for college, taking the ACT/SAT and
other empowering workshops where presented by na-
tionally recognized business leaders, respected and sea-
soned educators and national community activists.
In attendance over 1500 young men and women
from diverse racial and cultural backgrounds who trav-
eled from all states in the continental United States of
America and from military bases. These young people
represented the BGCA of their respective communities
and states. This annual leadership conference held in Or-
lando, Florida this year displayed that many youth are se-
rious about their success in life by preparing during their ;;
teen and young adult years by attending conferences '&
such as this.
Anthony Butler, Sr., recognized as an executive business leader, sup-
porter of entrepreneurs, advocate for youth and motivational speaker ("Accuse
Yourself of Success") presented on Building Blocks (Healthy Relationships)
and Education and the Arts. Each session had young people engaged in
evocative and empowering dialogue. Modeling the E3 Motto, "Educating, Em-
powering and Encouraging"; the skills learned will prepare these future lead-
ers to work collaboratively in professional environments as leaders, presenters,
project managers, and future CEO's, CFO's and involved in politics and com-
munity organizations.
William Jackson and Cheryl Williams presentation centered on Bully-
ing/Cyberbullying and the responsibilities of being a leader in school and com-
munity. Working to address the growing concern of bullying in schools and the
community. The national attention by the media, law enforcement, and
recorded data shows that this serious issue needs to be addressed by young

people not just educators and law enforcement.
The use/misuse of technology is a concern because
of the use of cell phone technology, social media/social net-
work sites being use to cyber-bully, threaten, socially ex-
clude and encourage retaliation. The tragic results have
been teens committing suicide or retaliating and killing or
seriously injuring others that are bullying.
~ William Jackson is a teacher in the Duval County
Public Schools system, on the Executive Board of JCCI For-
ward and member of National Association of Black Journal-
ists. His experience as a instructor in public education and
higher education of educational technology. Mr. Jackson
shared valuable and relevant information concerning higher
education, employment and the dangers of inappropriate
content placed on Social Media/Social Network site.
Mr. Jackson and his future wife (Cheryl Williams) Blog
on Jacksonville.com, NokturnalEscape.com and Seeing-
growth.com, further addressing the areas of technology,
when teens post information online any where it is always
accessible by future employers,
when applying for higher education
or entering into the military as a ca-
reer. Ms. Williams and Mr. Jackson
presented on Science Technology
Education Medicine (STEM). There
is a serious absence of minority
women and men in these career
choices, creating a gap in the influ-
ences that minorities have in the
fields of STEM. Minority youth must
seek more involvement in Science,
Technology, Education, Math if they
are to compete for the future jobs
that require these skills.
The objectives of the confer-
ence are to provide teens and
young adults with a fun, safe learn-
ing environment in which the values and traditions of the National Keystone
program are reinforced.
Kudos to the Boys and Girls Clubs of America for their work in guiding
youth to positive choices in life, preparing them for higher education and guid-
ing youth in careers that will place young people in leadership roles that ulti-
mately will be an influence in their respective communities.
President Obama references that future leaders will be the young
adults and teens of today. They must be innovators of technology, explorers of
space and oceans/seas, involved in futuristic medical research and scientific
discoveries in the fundamental improvement of the lives of Americans and the
world.

competition provides an opportunity for high school seniors to earn scholarships for
college. MetLife is the Platinum sponsor of the program for the second consecutive
year.
High school seniors from Alabama, Florida and Georgia are invited to sub-
mit an essay for the 2011 competition. In no more than 1000 words, students should
address the following issue: President Barack Obama challenged states to identify
high schools with graduation rates below 60% and implement programs to increase
the rates. If Dr. King were alive today, what new solutions) and new programs)
should he recommend that your state implement and the Obama Administration
fund? Specifically explain why the proposed new solutions and programs should be
adopted.
Students should register for the competition through

competition will receive a $1,000 scholarship and a three day, two night trip to Bal-
timore, MD for the national competition. Airfare and hotel costs will be covered for
the student and one adult chaperone. National competition winners will receive more
than $5,000 in scholarships. All national prizes are one time scholarships.
Sponsored by the National Bar Association and supported by the National
Bar Institute, the competition is an annual advocacy program designed to motivate
students of color to excel in education. The contest encourages high school seniors
to express their views on a pre-selected topic, and judges the students on their abil-
ity to communicate orally and in writing. It also provides young people with experi-
ence in public speaking.
"The NBA is so pleased to continue its tradition of inspiring young Americans
towards careers in the law and recognizing tomorrow's leaders," said J. Robert Carr,
executive director of the National Bar Association. "We also look forward to part-
nering with MetLife again this year to help families understand and plan for the ris-
ing costs of college."
Laurel Daring, assistant vice president of Marketing at MetLife added,
"MetLife recognizes the importance of education in helping families build financial
freedom. That's why we're proud to once again serve as the Platinum Sponsor of
this competition, which touches the lives of hundreds of talented young people."

Florida Youth Named National Epilepsy
Spokesperson
Ashley Irven to Visit Washington, D.C. and Meet with Lawmak-
ers

Ashley Irven, 18, of Jacksonville, FL will travel to Washing-
ton, D.C. to raise awareness about epilepsy and how it affects the life
of a child experiencing seizures. Ashley will participate in the Epilepsy
Foundation's annual Kids Speak Up! event from March 27 through
March 29, and become a part of the democratic process to make a dif-
ference for the nearly 3 million Americans coping with recurrent
seizures.
Ashley, a senior at Bolles School in Jacksonville, was selected
to participate in Kids Speak Up! due to her commitment to volunteer-
ing with the Foundation since she was first diagnosed in 2008. Ashley
started a teen support group at Bolles for other students with Epilepsy;
she serves as a H.O.P.E. mentor in her efforts to be an advocate for in-
dividuals with epilepsy. Ashley just recently raised over $400 for the
Foundation at her school by conducting sales of cupcakes in support of
our "Be a Cupcake, Buy a Cupcake for Epilepsy" campaign. She will
be participating in the 8th Annual Jacksonville Walk for Epilepsy on
April 16th at Memorial Park with the team she formed Team Carpe
Diem! Ashley has a passion for speaking out about the condition as
well as her own experiences. Her participation as the Speak Up Speak
Out teen representative for Florida is a natural extension of her efforts
on behalf of individuals with epilepsy and their families.
Kids Speak Up! is a national program that rallies young am-
bassadors with epilepsy between the ages of 8 and 18 to become ad-
vocates in their local communities and in the nation's capital. Their
mission is to personally petition congressional leaders for aid in assur-
ing better access to care, improved public education and awareness
about epilepsy and more research toward a cure for epilepsy.
As one of 42 Kids Speak Up! spokespersons, Ashley will par-
ticipate in a three-day training to learn more about epilepsy, develop her
public speaking skills, and learn the importance of advocacy. The high-
light of her trip will be a meeting with her representative, Ander Cren-
shaw's aide as well as Rep Corrine Brown's aide. She will also be
visiting both Senator's offices to speak with aides to urge support of ef-
forts to improve public understanding of the condition and increase aid
to further research for a cure.
"Not many people in my neighborhood understand or even
know about epilepsy," said Ashley. "If more doctors would lear about
seizures then they could help us get better and teach other people not
to be afraid of people who have them."
Epilepsy is the most common neurological condition in chil-
dren and each year approximately 45,000 children under age 17 are di-
agnosed with the disorder. Despite modem therapy, about one million
people in the U.S. continue to experience seizures or significant side ef-
fects from treatment for their epilepsy.


It's all about healthy choices and healthy living for young people! The ladies
of the Gamma Omicron Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. are once
again hosting a Youth Symposium that will provide resources to promote a healthy
generation. "H3: It's All About Me Healthy Choices, Healthy Living, Healthy Gen-
erations" will be held on March 26th from 10 a.m. 2 p.m. at the Regency Square
Mall, near Belk. It is free and open to the public.
There will be health screenings, child id and fingerprinting, entertainment
and much more. Middle and high school students will be able to pick up information
on topics they deal with daily like childhood obesity and peer pressure. They can
also win great prizes!
Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. is a leading international, nonprofit com-
munity service organization that continues to grow through Sisterhood, Scholarship
and Service. Seven educators founded Sigma Gamma Rho on November 12, 1922
at Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana. Hosting the symposium allows mem-
bers to promote the sorority's motto "Greater Service, Greater Progress."

Serial Killer Case Leads Police to Copycat Killer

A Cleveland man who is
currently incarcerated for murder
has been indicted on multiple
counts of the same crime.
50-year-old Joseph Har-
well, who is already serving 15
years to life in prison for the stran-
gling death of Teresa Vinson in
Columbus in 1997, was charged
with raping and killing 27-year-old
Mary Thomas in 1989, and 33-
year-old Tondilear Harge in 1996,
based on evidence found in cold
case files.
The cold case unit investi-
gators looked at nearly 100 un-
solved murders in a three-mile
Joseph Harwell radius of where Anthony Sowell,
another known serial killer, had
lived. DNA evidence found on vic-
tim Thomas surprisingly led police to Harwell instead. He had beaten and strangled the
woman, who was three months pregnant when she died.
Harge's body was found in an empty lot near Sowell's home, but Harwell's DNA
was matched to her crime as well.
Harwell has a long criminal history dating back to the 1970s, including a conviction
for felonious assault in 1989, when he attempted to strangle a woman who survived.
Harwell is eligible for parole in 2012.

"Harlem Kervorkian" Convicted
of Murder


Kenneth Minor


Ajury returned a guilty verdict in the murder trial
of a Harlem, New York man who assisted a motivational
speaker with killing himself.
Kenneth Minor, dubbed the "Harlem Kervorkian"
for his role in the assisted-suicide, had been approached
by Jeffrey Locker, a motivational speaker whose money
troubles were severe enough to prompt him to cruise the
streets to find someone who could help kill him and get
his family $17 million in life insurance.
The 36-year-old maintained that he only braced
the knife against Locker's steering wheel and the victim
impaled himself on the sharp weapon seven times.
Locker allegedly gave Minor his ATM card and
pin number as payment for his assistance.
Minor's lawyer was not able to convince the jury
that his client's actions were protected under the state's
"assisted suicide" exemption. He now faces up to 25 years
for his role in the murder and will be sentenced on April
4th.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE Po-
lice were dispatched to 7844 S.
Knoll Dr. in Jacksonville in refer-
ence to a domestic dispute.

The victim informed police
that she had recently separated
from the suspect, who is her former
boyfriend and is also the father of
her child.

The suspect allegedly came
to her house and began harassing
the victim, yelling at her about a vehicle that was parked in front of her
residence and trying to force his way inside of her home to search for
another man.

The victim went on to say that she had moved on since her
breakup with the suspect and did not want him inside her house. She
barred the suspect's way and the two began to struggle. The suspect then
put his hands on the victim's shoul-
ders and shoved her out of the way.
He went inside against her wishes,
making threats to hurt her if she
tried to stop him again.

An officer also inter-
viewed a witness at the home, who
claimed to have seen the suspect
push the victim out of the way and
force his way inside the residence.
They told police that they also
heard the suspect make the threats
the victim had relayed to officers.

While police conducted the investigation, the suspect continu-
ally called to harass the victim, saying that he would return to her house
as soon as the police left the scene.

There were no visible injuries on the victim's person, so an ev-
idence technician was not called. Police patrol will follow up on the
case.


Look Out for Fake Disaster Aid Scams

Using email scams and fake websites, criminals use natural disasters
like hurricanes and earthquakes, to try to defraud the public into making do-
nations to fake charitable organizations.
Before you make a donation to any solicitation, you may want to con-
sider these guidelines suggested by the FBI:

* Do not respond to any email sent from someone you do not know per-
sonally.

* Don't click on links in unsolicited email, because they could contain a
virus.

* Be skeptical of anyone who represents themselves as a member of char-
itable organizations or officials asking for donations via email or social
networking sites.

* Watch out for copy-cat names similar to but not exactly the same as those
of reputable charities.

* Try to verify the legitimacy of nonprofit organizations by searching on-
line to confirm the group's existence and nonprofit status.

* Beware of e-mails that claim to show pictures of the disaster areas in at-
tached files. Those files may contain viruses.

* Make contributions directly to known organizations rather than relying on
others to make the donation on your behalf.

* Be cautious if someone tries to pressure you into making contributions;
reputable charities do not use such tactics.

* Be sure whom you are dealing with when providing your personal and fi-
nancial information. Providing such information can you vulnerable to
identity theft.

* Avoid cash donations. Pay by credit card or write a check directly to the
charity.

Florida Doctor Pleads Guilty

To Child Porn

A former Jacksonville doctor pleaded guilty Monday to downloading child
pornography.
45-year-old Robert Davis Williams admitted to receiving sexually explicit im-
ages and videos of children on his computer before a judge in U.S. District Court. Ac-
cording to authorities, the Sheriff's Office received a complaint in late 2009 about
possible child pornography at Williams' home and began to investigate.
When Williams was caught, police were appalled to find not only digital child
pornography on Williams' computer, but also 41 videotapes, 697 compact discs and
DVDs, 62 floppy disks and two zip drives in the house and garage.
Williams had completed a medical residency at Shands Jacksonville in June
2009, but a hospital representative stated that he had not been affiliated with the hospi-
tal or the University of Florida for some time.
In addition to his courtroom admission, Williams was also recorded during a
phone call, during which he admitted to downloading the illegal material and apolo-
gized for what he called his "sickness".
Although a sentencing date has not been set, Williams faces up to 20 years in
federal prison.
