Black consumers spend $2.2 Billion with Toyota, yet
Toyota refuses to thank Black consumers for their support.
Toyota Motor Sales USA executives have angered
National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA)
Chairman Danny Bakewell Sr. and America's preeminent
Black newspaper publishers after the troubled carmaker
backed out of a multi-million dollar advertising campaign
targeting Black consumers. In a letter to Mr. Bakewell
and the NNPA, Toyota executives said that Black con-
sumers of Toyota products receive their advertising mes-
sage from a number of media channels which include
mainstream media (white media), thus implying that
advertising in the Black newspapers was unnecessary.
This decision comes after months of meetings between
Toyota executives and the NNPA, a network of 200 Black
publishers which represents over 19.8 million weekly
readers, approximately half of America's Black popula-
Earlier this year, Toyota's president and CEO, Mr.
Toyoda said, "Everyone at Toyota will continuously main-
tain a sense of gratitude to customers..."
Mr. Bakewell said, "Based on Toyota's actions, it appears
that Mr. Toyota's statement applies to everyone but the
The issue first surfaced with Toyota's unwillingness to
run "Thank you" ads in Black newspapers. This was after
Toyota spent millions advertising in white newspapers
with me after last year's safety recall.
"Black people stood by Toyota during their time of crisis
to the tune of $2.2 billion," said Mr. Bakewell. "Where is
the thank you to Black consumers for their support and
loyalty to Toyota? We just can't stand by and let Toyota
disrespect our people that way."
"Toyota insulted us by putting those thank you ads in
white newspapers and refusing to address Black con-
sumers in Black newspapers," said Walter Smith, publish-
er of the New York Beacon.
"What Toyota is doing is irreprehensible," commented
Robert Bogle, publisher of the Philadelphia Inquirer. "If
it's so easy for Toyota to dismiss the Black press, no won-
der they have no problem overlooking thanking their
Black consumer base."
Even though African-Americans contributed $2.2 billion
to Toyota's annual sales, this was the second time that
Black consumers were not included in Toyota's advertis-
ing campaign, the first being Toyota's immediate response
to its sticky gas pedal defect.

An inmate serving a life sentence for crimes that
include murder, an associate of a noted hip-hop music
figure, has confessed to the 1994 shooting and robbery
of late rapper Tupac Shakur at Quad Recording Studios
in New York City, two years before he was slain on the
Las Vegas strip.
Dexter Isaac, 46, who was indicted in 1998 and con-
victed of murder, robbery, fraud and witness intimida-
tion, told AllHipHop.com that Czar Entertainment
Dexter Isaac, 46 Tupac-Shukur founder James "Jimmy Henchman" Rosemond paid
him $2,500 cash to rob Shakur and allegedly told him
to keep the rapper's jewelry, with the exception of a single diamond ring Rosemond allegedly wanted to give
Isaac is coming clean after Rosemond who reportedly manages Mike Tyson and Sean Kingston identi-
fied Isaacs in a statement relating to Rosemond's indictment for dealing numerous kilos of cocaine. And since
the statute of limitations had expired, legally, no one can be prosecuted for the assault against Shakur.

Divorced Fathers Celebrate Fathers Day
The actions of divorce force men to start over, starting a new beginning, and
rebuilding of relationships with children, renewing a father's spirituality, and the
redirection of personal priorities in life. No matter what cultural background,
maturity range, salary scale or religious conviction, divorce can be overwhelming,
demeaning, financially draining (especially if you are proving child support and
or alimony), and a emotional roller coaster that never seems to end. In Matthew
6:33 states, "..seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness..", when
searching for direction through this challenging time. The best guide is the read-
Sing of the Bible and seeking understanding of the Word. Reading and interpreta-
.' l tion can refocus your life, redirect your spirituality in scripture and provides com-
fort and solace.
William Jackson, M.Ed. a slc
Having gone through divorce it forced an understanding on what I need to
improve in myself, not focusing on the faults or shortcomings of others. Not blaming, arguing about perceptions of
right and wrong. The thoughts and emotional turmoil of blame, anger, self-pity, shame and defeatism have been
cried over, cursed about and now distant memories, stored away in a heart mending itself together. As a divorced
father I questioned how can I move on with my life, amplify my spirituality as a Christian man and still be in my
children's lives being a positive force, being a role model, and support mechanism, these are my focus points. To
achieve them I understand that I need to be a highly involved father.
Research has shown that being an involved father can be a big source of healing for a man and children. Men
need to re-bond with their kids to keep them motivated in fathering. This Fathers Day instead of focusing on you
refocus on the responsibilities of being a father, a man, a role model, renewing and recharging the commitment and
covenant you have with your children.
Children are a blessing from God as written in Psalm 127:3, with this knowledge, children being blessings,
men/fathers have a responsibility to be a part of children's lives and accept them as blessings from God the heav-
Children are not commodities to be traded, fought over, or bargained for. Their well being should be placed first
during time of upheaval and emotional stress. Children do not cause divorce, but are directly affected by it. Fathers
Day is for divorced fathers because of the hard work and sacrifices that are required to stay in children's lives.
No one can take away that fathers are a parent and aid children's growth in dynamic ways. A divorced father
may not physically be in the home, but the teachings, modeling and prayers are present in children's life. The
essence of what is shared within children. As is states in Ephesians 6:4, "bring them up in the nurture and admoni-
tion of the Lord", the first responsibility that fathers must continue is to teach sons is to be respectful in order to
get respect, the importance of education to obtain a career, provide for oneself and family and putting God first in
all they do. In being fathers in deeds and duties sons will follow as an example of behavior.
In accordance with sons, daughters taught to be independent thinkers and aspire to be self supportive, not lean-
ing on being reliant on any man to provide for them. Daughters will seek a man similar to their father's actions,
demeanor and emotional statues even if it is self-destructive at times. Fathers set the foundation on whom daugh-
ters will look for in a mate. Just as sons, fathers must teach daughters who will be mothers one day to put God first
in their lives and seek Godly men. Not men who follow the latest trends in fashions, cars and other material things
which are not long lasting. Fathers must teach their little girls that they are empowered with dreams and aspirations
to be successful and can achieve greatness.
Stated in John 10:30, "I and my father are one" Jesus makes this statement as a testimony to his father. The
same holds true for fathers and their children, you are one in many ways with your children. Some of these ways
are visually evident and some ways will manifest themselves as your child matures into adulthood. Men and fathers
have obtained wisdom that we should pass on to our children. In Proverbs 4:1-27 there is discussion of wisdom,
gaining it through life experiences and reading of the Word. "Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wis-
dom..." (Proverbs 4:7), and share it so children will not make the same mistakes as parents have. Real fathers guide
their children, helping them to "deviate from the possible path of the wicked, and not go in the way of evil men
(ultimate self destruction)" (Proverbs 4:14).
This Fathers Day and beyond, be the father your father may not have been to you, be the dad that your children
can be proud of and seek for guidance. Fathers this is your day to be recognized and no one can take that from you.
Starting over is not easy, but the path can be peaceful, comforting and less challenging if we recognize the heaven-
ly father first and continue to do the right thing by him and children. Sometimes doing the right thing is the hard-
est thing, sometimes doing the right thing is not the popular thing, sometimes doing the right thing will put us
against what other people say, but at the end of the day what will our children and God say about you doing the
Divorce is not the end of fatherhood just a new beginning and an opportunity to grow, but with the proper guid-
ance from God's help. What legacy do you want to leave for your children? God Bless divorced fathers, they are
still fathers and dads in children's lives, divorced fathers must stay involved and in prayer for wisdom and guid-

KNOW WHEN TO CLAP
The question of when to clap at a concert seems
to be a matter of concern for many people who are new
to classical music. The truth is, applause is always
appreciated. In earlier days, audiences applauded at the
end of any portion of a piece that moved them. Today,
the applause is usually saved for the end of a complet-
ed piece; you will probably notice subcategories or
movements listed beneath the title (which are often
indicated with tempo markings). It is considered
respectful of the performers' concentration to hold
applause until then.
Of course, a sure-fire way to figure out the
appropriate time to applaud is to wait for the rest of the
audience to begin, and then join in! The important
thing is to relax and enjoy the performance.

Don't ask me, ask your mother
Were you raised in a barn? Close the door
You didn't beat me. I let you win.
Big boys don't cry.
Don't worry. It's only blood.
Don't you know any normal boys?
Now you listen to ME, Buster!
I'll play catch after I read the paper
Coffee will stunt your growth.
A little dirt never hurt anyone--just wipe it off.
Get your elbows off the table.
I told you, keep your eye on the ball.
Who said life was supposed to be fair?
The fair's in October
Always say please and thank you.
That way, you get more.
If you forget,
you'll be grounded till the end of the world.
You call that a haircut?
"Hey" is for horses.
This will hurt me a lot more than it hurts you.
Turn off those lights.
Do you think I am made of money?
Don't give me any of your lip, young lady.
You call that noise "music"?
We're not lost.
I'm just not sure where we are.
No, we're not there yet.
Shake it off It's only pain.
When I was your age,
I treated MY father with respect.
As long as you live under my roof
you'll live by my rules.
I'll tell you why. Because I said so. That's why.
Do what I say, not what I do.
Sit up straight, knucklehead!
So you think you're smart, do you?
What's so funny? Wipe that smile off your face.
Young ladies perspire, they do not sweat.
If I've told you once,
I've told you a thousand times
You want something to do?
I'll give you something to do.
You should visit more often.
Your mother worries.
This is your last warning.
I'm not sleeping, I was watching that channel.
What keeps those jeans of yours from falling off?
I'm not just talking to hear my own voice!
A little pain never hurt anybody.
I knew how to cook
when I was your age, young lady!
Don't take yourself so seriously,
take what you do seriously!
Laugh at yourself first,
you'll take the bite out of others doing so for you.
You're always a winner if you lose with a smile.
Go tell your mother she wants you.
Any fights, I win!
That's the best way I know to put out an eye!
You could drive a wooden man nuts!
In MY day......
Eat it! It will grow hair on your chest!
Don't forget to check your oil.
Four things come not back:
time past, the spoken word,
the sped arrow and a missed opportunity.
You can want in one hand and spit in the other
and see which one fills up first.
If your friend jumped off a bridge would you?
If I didn't love you so much I wouldn't punish you...
I would let you do whatever you wanted.
Stop crying or I'll give you a reason to cry.
You have things so easy!
When I was your age
I had to walk to school in 10feet of snow
up hill both ways!
You're only young once.
You're gonna like it, whether you like it or not!
The early bird gets the worm. Rise and shine!
Don't take any wooden nickels!
Life is a journey
and you've just reached
one of many speed bumps to come.
Don't look at me in that tone of voice!
How many times
do I have to pound that into your head?
I'm not lost, it's just over the next hill!
If you want to do something,
do it because you want to.
Don't do it because someone else did.
As long as you tried your hardest,
that's all that matters.
What do you think this is, your birthday?
If ifs and buts were candy and nuts
then we'd all have a merry Christmas.
Don't believe anything you hear
and only half of what you see.
What do you think I am, a bank?
What part of NO don't you understand?
I don't care what other people are doing!
I'm not everybody elses father!
You're not leaving my house dressed like that!
What will other parents think?
Could those sleeves be any longer?
You look like a bag lady!
Put your head through the window
and the pain will be gone.
Worrying about things you can't change
is like a rocking chair..
it gives you something to do,
but it doesn't get you anywhere.
Hurt much? I didn't feel a thing.
I feel for you, but I can't reach you from here.
If you're gonna be dumb, you've gotta be tough.
Didn't your teacher learn you anything?!
You can marry a rich guy just as easily
as you can a poor guy.
It's hard to be good, and easy to be bad.
If you're going to steal a car
at least make it a Cadillac
(but don't call me asking for bail.)
I got my tongue wrapped around my eye-tooth
and couldn't see what I was saying.
Men are like buses.
Just wait on the corner
and another one will come along.
Don't tell on anybody
unless you tell on yourselffirst.
Hey, did you hear me talking to you?
I'm not watching television. I'm resting my eyes.
Don't use that tone with me!
Am I talking to a brick wall?
IfI catch you doing that one more time, I'll...
Act your age.
Two wrongs do not make a right.
Wipe your feet!
Enough is enough!
Don't make me stop the car!
What did I just get finished telling you?
You know you're always
gonna to be Daddy's little one...

PAGE B 2 THE
If You are African American and
Suffered Farm Loan Discrimination
by the USDA between 1981 and 1996,
You may be eligible for money from
a $1.25 billion class action Settlement Fund
(Heirs/Kin may be included)
There is a proposed class action Settlement with the U.S. Department of Agriculture
(USDA) involving racial discrimination against African American farmers between 1981
and 1996. This Settlement is only for certain people who tried to file a late claim in
the original Pigford case, or their heirs (kin) and legal representatives. The current
Settlement (sometimes called Pigford II) provides benefits to some of those late filers.
Am I included?
You may be included if you:
Between 1981 and 1996, were discouraged or prevented from applying for or were
denied a USDA farm loan or other benefit, or you were given a loan with unfair terms
because of racial discrimination,
Were eligible for a payment in the original Pigford case, and
Submitted a late-filing request that was denied or never considered because it was late.
If you are the heir or kin of someone who died who fits this description, you may file a
claim for a payment that would become part of the deceased person's estate. If you are not
sure if you (or someone for whom you are the legal representative) are included, please
call 1-877-810-8110. You are not included if you received a payment in the original
What does the Settlement provide?
You may be eligible for a substantial cash payment and USDA loan forgiveness from
the Settlement. You will need to file a claim to be eligible for these benefits. The claims
deadline may be as early as February 28, 2012. The Court has appointed lawyers to help
you file a claim under the Settlement. You do not have to pay them or anyone else to help
you with the claims process. These attorneys will ask the Court for fees and expenses of
between 4.1% and 7.4% of the Settlement Fund, and the Court will decide how much they
are paid. You may hire your own lawyer, if you wish, at your own expense. If you have
questions or need more information, call 1-877-810-8110.
What else should I know?
The Court will hold a hearing on September 1, 2011 to consider whether to approve the
Settlement and a request for attorneys' fees and expenses. If you want to object to or
comment on the Settlement or appear at the hearing, you need to file a letter with the Court
by August 12, 2011. If the Court approves the Settlement, you will not be able to sue the
USDA about your farm loan discrimination claims in the future.

DEFINITION: Food faddists bring many claims and prod-
ucts to the attention of the public. Some of these products
include royal jelly, honey and vinegar, yogurt, and other
"health foods." Royal jelly, which is the food of the queen bee, actually has no
practical value to humans as a food, a drug, or a cosmetic. Claims of cures by
honey and vinegar have been proved worthless by qualified medical scientists.
Scientific evidence shows that yogurt has no more nutritional value than whole
NATURAL FOODS: Many faddists claim that the only food that is good is nat-
ural food. They stress that foods which are processed lack essential nutrients. The
claims of many of these natural food promoters have been exposed as worthless
by the Food and Drug Administration of the Department of Health, Education, and
SOIL DEPLETION: Soil depletion is another favorite topic of food faddists.
The faddists claim that repeated farming depletes the soil and that it can only be
restored by organic fertilizers. The faddists insist that chemical fertilizers have no
value. The Department of Agriculture has revealed that there is no evidence to
support these claims.
SUBCLINICAL DEFICIENCIES: Food faddists also expound the myth of sub-
clinical deficiencies. If a person is continually tired, the food faddist has a prod-
uct to supplement his diet. These faddists may offer alfalfa, ground bones, garlic,
wheat germ, seaweed, volcanic ash, or blackstrap molasses to rid a person of a
tired feeling. Despite numerous court convictions, many vendors of health foods
and supplemental diets make vast sums of money.
Often food faddists claim that all diseases are due to faulty diet. However,
informed persons are aware that most diseases are caused by bacteria, viruses, and
other causative agents.
A person who accepts all the claims and products of food faddists may have
a real problem, for he is obviously poorly informed about nutrition. He probably
will be unable to detect misleading information promoted by food faddists and
probably will avoid consultation with his physician about his nutritional problems.
I loaned money to my girlfriend's husband and now he
won't pay the money back. I did this personal favor with-
out talking to my friend first. He is now telling me to stop
harassing him or he's going to accuse me of trying to sleep
with him. I've been sending him e-mails to call along with
text messages and I've called his cell phone. I thought I
was doing the right thing by not mentioning the loan. How
do I get my money without jeopardizing my friendship?
Miss CeeCee Atlanta, GA
It's to your advantage to go ahead and write the money off unless you're willing
to bring drama in your life. If there's no promissory note or paper trail indicating
you loaned the money and it would be paid back, you're stuck.You're being
blackmailed and it's going to get worse. Tell your friend about the loan, stop look-
ing for payment and whatever happens in their relationship is not your fault
because you chose to be honest and have integrity.

they will be expected to

is the kind of attitude this
new coaching staff both
expect and demand.
Senior Josh Philpart already has
set the single-season and career
records in his first three years at
Jacksonville. The wide out netted
another accomplishment this off-
season, earning a spot on The
Sports Network's Football
Preseason Top-10 Receivers list
and College Football Performance
Awards wide receiver watch list.
Philpart was an integral part of
JU's high-octane passing attack,
posting 12 touchdown catches as a
junior. His 48 receptions were 20
more than the next closest team-
mate; racking up 800 receiving
yards en route to claiming a first
team all-conference spot for the
second time in his career.
At 6-1, 175 pounds, Philpart is a
vertical threat that propelled a JU
offense that led the FCS in scoring,
averaging 42.2 points per game in
2010. Over the last two seasons, he
has caught 25 touchdown passes
and is the school's all-time leader in
receiving yardage with 2,156 with
one more season of eligibility
remaining. "Coach Kerwin Bell
lauds Philpart's ability to run
routes," The Sports Network wrote
in its release. "Philpart's best attrib-
ute might be his hands because he
rarely drops a pass."
A native of Deerfield Beach, Fla.,
Philpart also was named a top-10
wide receiver last season. As a
sophomore in 2009, he set the
school record for most receiving
yards in a season (912) and receiv-
ing touchdowns (13) to earn unani-
mous first team all-Pioneer
Football League honors.
Philpart caught four-or-more pass-
es in nine of JU's 11 games last sea-
son, leading the Dolphins to a 10-1
record and the second PFL champi-
onship in the program's history.
With just a little less than 3 months to go till
the start of the 2011 college football season.
The pundits have already begun to weigh in
on the nations elite college football programs.
Football preview magazines have already hit
the bookstores and grocery store shelves.
While these annual publications aren't
always overflowing with new information or
insight, they do give fanatic college football
fans something to break the boredom of the
long summer months. They are also useful in
providing an objective view into how the col-
lege football world looks upon certain pro-
If the points of view of arguably the three
most popular preseason magazines Athlon,
Lindy's and Phil Steele mean anything; it is
apparent that the nation's perception of
Florida State has changed as have the expec-
tations. The "Market Mags" have the Noles an
overall top 10 program heading into the 2011
campaign. The highest ranking from the three
before mentioned magazines is Athlon which
has the Noles ranked number 4 in the nation
behind Alabama, Oklahoma, and Oregon.
The next highest ranking is from Lindy's
which has the Noles ranked number 5 behind
Oklahoma, Alabama, Oregon, and LSU. Phil
Seeele has FSU rounding out their top 10
behind Alabama, Oklahoma, Boise State,
Oregon, Virginia Tech, Notre Dame, LSU,
Texas A&M, and Georgia.
With a strong showing in his first full sea-
son as the Head Football Coach, the number 1
recruiting class in the country, and all the buzz
swirling in the college football atmosphere, it
appears Jimbo Fishert and staff have the noles
back in the conversation concerning the
nation's elite. But at the end of the day, talk is
cheap, and only what you do on the field will
remain at the close of the season.

African American Senior Tyler
Garvey of John Jay College Receives Full
Scholarship to Law School

of Tyler Garvey, a Justice
Studies major at John
Jay College of Criminal
Justice in New York City,
who has been accepted
to Cornell Law School,
the University of Texas
School of Law and UC
Berkeley Boalt Hall
School of Law, which of-
fered him a full ride.
"I think that might
be the place I'm going to
be headed," said the 21-year-old Student Council vice pres-
ident, referring to UC Berkeley, who is graduating with John
Jay College's Class of 2011 magna cum laude with a 3.66
GPA, and will receive the Scholarship and Service Award,
John Jay's second highest graduation honor.
Garvey was the 2010 winner of the prestigious
Steamboat Scholarship and a recipient of John Jay's Thur-
good Marshall Scholarship. His expenses at Berkeley will
be covered by two combined scholarships, one that will pro-
vide $30,000 a year and another $19,000 a year. But that's
not the only reason Garvey is going to Berkeley.
"I'm interested in family law," he said. "Berkeley has
a big pro bono program, one of the best in the country."
Before committing to any type of law, however, Gar-
vey served as a judicial intern at the King's County, NY, Dis-
trict Attorney's Office, the New York State Office of the
Attorney General, and at the Center for Court Innovation.
"I can't say for certain I want to do family law, but
I've interned at places to see what I like, what I don't like,
and try to learn from there instead of just starting when I get
to law school," he said.
The 2011 commencement ceremony for John Jay
College of Criminal Justice was held on Friday, June 3rd at
the Jacob Javitz Center in New York City.

"FORE OUR STUDENTS"
Duval County, Florida Due to certain
cuts in education spending by our state, the
Duval County School Board has decided to
eliminate the Boys & Girls golf teams from their
budget for the 2011/2012 season. This means
a potential 17 high schools in Duval County will
no longer offer our high school students the op-
portunity to play golf for their school. Northern
Chapter, North Florida Section PGA and the
North Florida Junior Golf Foundation with the
approval of the Duval County Athletic Director
are launching the "FORE OUR STUDENTS"
The goal is to raise $70,000 by August
1, 2011, the efforts will be focused around our
"FORE OUR STUDENTS" Super Raffle. 25
foursomes of complimentary golf has been do-
nated from the most exclusive golf facilities in
North Florida and surrounding areas, support-
ers will be able to purchase raffle tickets for
$100 apiece for a chance to win; 12 foursomes
for first place, 8 foursomes for second place
and 5 foursomes for third place. Tickets will be
sold by PGA Members at many local golf
shops. The drawing will take place on Friday
July 29, 2011. This campaign will also include
the "FORE OUR STUDENTS" charity golf
event at Jacksonville Golf & Country Club...Info
and entry coming shortly. The North Florida
Junior Golf Foundation has set up a sub ac-
count using the NFJG's (501C3) Non Profit sta-
tus making these donations tax deductible.
Some may think "I don't live in Duval
County......this doesn't concern me" or "my
kids go to private school.........this isn't my
concern". Here is how intertwined the high
school golf programs are in North Florida. The
private schools play a lot of the public schools
and all schools play schools from all counties
in North Florida. This is NOT a public school or
just a Duval County issue. It is a North Florida
Golf Community issue and "Together we can do
ANYTHING" please join us in our "FORE OUR
STUDENTS" fundraising campaigns.

Raffle Tickets or to sign up for the Golf Tourna-
ment go to www.nfjg.org or contact Mike

Florida Memorial University President Invests Close To $40,000
In Black Male High School Graduates
History was made at Florida Memorial University (FMU) when
the inaugural High School Black Male Baccalaureate Service was held
May 21, 2011. The first of its kind held on a college campus in the U.S.,
the event, organized by FMU's Black Male College Explorers Program
(BMCEP), celebrated the educational accomplishments of young black
males who recently graduated from high school. FMU president, Dr.
Henry Lewis, III, offered many honorees an unprecedented $2,000
scholarship to attend the university in the fall.
"You cannot build a university until you build the community,"
President Lewis commented. "We are congratulating these gentlemen
with this scholarship and encouraging them to come to FMU."
Eric McWilliams, a graduating senior at Miami Central High
School, responded to the president's generosity with gratitude. "I really
appreciate what Florida Memorial University did for us black males,"
McWilliams shared. "The $2,000 will definitely help towards my future."
Local school board reports note only 23% of black male students

4 Suspects Arrested in
Four suspects were arrested
who have been involved in two
convenience store robberies. They
are Shuban Alberto, 18; Johntrell
Calloway,19; Evans Perez, 19; and
The first robbery took place
at about 4 a.m. at a Kangaroo con-
venience store. The armed robbers
approached the client, who was on
the phone outside, with shotguns
and a handgun. They forced him
back into the store with a gun
pointed at his head, demanding that
he open up the cash register. They
also had him lay on the ground
while he was still on the phone. On
the other line was someone who
was at a different Kangaroo store,

Townsend has been transporting women
from state to state for prostitution, beating them
and pimping them. He had each of them bring in
a nightly quota of $1,000. His first victim was a
18-year-old runaway that he met in 2009 and
another was a Canadian woman he met on an
called 911. Deputies arrived right
away, but the robbers immediately
There was another robbery
the following week, which deputies
believed were done by the same
men from the previous robbery. De-
tective James Acres said that there
was a moment where they took a
woman's purse to put in the money
and the items that they just stolen.
But the lady asked them to not take
her purse and strangely, they emp-
tied her purse and didn't take it.
They left with $200 and 10 packs
of cigarettes that day.
Alberto's arrest was made
in connection to another burglary
shortly thereafter, which aided in
the arrests of Calloway, Perez, and
also a juvenile.
Investigating began when an undercover
cop from the JSO caught and arrested the Cana-
dian woman. She explained to him the situation
she was in. This lead investigators to start to
look into Townsend's business and they even
came across the many ads that he had up on the
internet. A Garmin GPS system was used to
lead them to Townsend, the same way his cus-
tomers would've been lead, where he was ar-

Witness for Justice #532
June 13, 2011
Rev. Sala W.J. Nolan Gonzales
Minister for Criminal Justice and Human Rights
One out of every 32 adults in the United States is in prison
or on probation or parole -- a convicted criminal under judicial
control. This does not account for the millions who have com-
pleted their sentences, but still live with employment restric-
tions, poverty and shame.
How many is enough?
With 5% of the world's population, the US houses 25%
of the world's prisoners. But it makes no sense. Where incar-
ceration rates have gone up, crime rates have not gone down.
Where crime has gone down, so have incarceration rates.
It costs as much to house a man in prison as it would
cost to pay him a living wage, but by putting him behind bars,
we lose his productivity and the tax base. Almost all women in
prison are parents, most of very young children. When their
grandmothers and friends cannot take them in, the children go
into foster care. Our taxes pay for that, too. We are raising an
entire generation of youth at extreme risk for incarceration. The
losses are immense, at every level. The system is broken, and
it is destroying the quality of our lives.
I work with a woman who just spent four years in prison.
She was a mail carrier and a mom. Five years ago, after a fight,
her husband threw her out of the house. She had two beers with
a friend and got in the car to find a place to stay. She had a
wreck and hurt someone. When she went to prison, her sons
lost their mother. The older one coped, but the younger one was
left on a gravel road at 16 with a blanket and a backpack and
nowhere to go, and has been homeless ever since. When he
talks to her about it now, he cries. And she cries, because she
wants to take care of him. She is resourceful, and she got a job.
She travels three hours a day by bus to get there, where she
works half a day for $7.50 an hour. The buspass costs $85 a
month. She stays with a friend, who wants rent. She says,
"Deep down inside, I want to die. But I also want to live. I will
help my sons to heal. That is my reason to live."
Prisons are for serious and violent offenders, who should
be held in secure facilities and monitored when they leave. But
parole officers are being laid off, and those who remain are
inundated with people convicted of minor crimes. This puts all
of us at risk, and does not solve the problem.
There are alternatives to prison -- alternatives that would
hold people accountable but keep them working and their fam-
ilies intact. Alternatives that would treat mental illness and sub-
stance abuse. Alternatives that would address the underlying
issues and restore balance.
Our prison system is broken. That is why Senator Jim
Webb (D-VA) and 22 cosponsors reintroduced S306, the
National Criminal Justice Commission Act, to conduct a thor-
ough and scientific review of our justice system and how it can
Enough. It is time for justice to be restored.

19-Year-Old Uses Pickaxe to Kill Father with Mother's Help
As Father's Day is just around the corer, It just so happens
that something like this would happen. Guenevere Hudnall, 19, is al-
leged to already have plotted to murder her father, 51, with her mother,
Stephanie. Police said that the reason behind it was for her father's so-
cial security benefits and that both the daughter and the mother were un-
employed with their trailer home in the process of going into
As planned, Guenevere was dropped off at her father's home
Guenevere by her mother, where the two of them talked for hours. She waited until
Hudnall he fell asleep and picked up a pickaxe from the porch, which she used
to immediately start hacking at her father with. She repeatedly struck
him in the head and chest multiple times. Hudnall started to make noise,
S but Guenevere continued to attack him until he was completely dead.
Then she attempted to cover up the murder by making it seem like it
was a break-in, by throwing mail on the floor.
The next day, Guenevere and her mother returned to the house
to call the police as a medical emergency about Hudnall's body. It be-
came clear that he had been murdered and the daughter and mother
Stephanie were arrested a day later. Both are charged with premeditated murder
Hudnall and are being held on $1 million bond.

Couple Guilty on Felony Charges for
Praying for Their Daughter's Face
Tumor Instead of Medical Attention
Oregon City, OR- Christian couple,
Timothy and Rebecca Wyland, attend
an unorthodox Christian church that
shuns medicine. Their 2-year-old
daughter, Alayna, had a tumor the size
of a baseball over her left eye. Instead
of seeking medical attention, they
prayed for her and anointed her with
oil. Authorities took notice after a
county sheriff's deputy stopped by their
house to make a welfare check, who
immediately saw the bulge on baby's
face. The couple were aware that med-
ical attention would solve the problem,
but they both relied merely on faith and
received support from their fellow
church members. Due to failure of pro-
viding any sort of medical care at all for
their daughter, the couple has been
charged for first-degree criminal mis-
treatment and they will face up to 5
years in prison
