WHY MOST TAXIS FLY PASS BLACK MALES - Two Colored Brothers charged with robbing cab drivers in Skokie

Two men have been charged with robbing two cab drivers at gunpoint earlier this month in north suburban Skokie.

Filbert Elonge, 21, and 19-year-old Dennis Elonge were each charged with two felony counts of armed robbery, according to a statement from Skokie police. Filbert Elonge was also charged with a felony count of unlawful use of a weapon by a felon, two misdemeanor counts of resisting arrest and a misdemeanor count of criminal trespass to a residence.

The pair robbed a cab driver at 3:51 a.m. Nov. 15 near Lavergne Avenue and Greenwood Street, police said. They robbed another cab driver later that day at 5:25 p.m. near Lavergne and Suffield Court.


DRIVING WHILE BLACK KILLS - Colored Driver with a checkered driving past hits and kills woman, smashes into cars, and tries to steal vehicle while fleeing in Brooklyn: police

A Negro driver blazed a path of destruction on a Brooklyn street Thursday night — hitting an SUV and then fatally striking a woman before smashing into several cars, cops and witnesses said.

The gruesome Thanksgiving night wreck on Pennsylvania Ave. in East New York ended with the 24-year-old driver trying to carjack passing vehicles, a scene so outrageous that one witness likened it to a violent video game.

“He was just trying to run on the other side (of the street) to try and open people’s car doors as they’re driving ... like it was ‘Grand Theft Auto,’” said Tianna Humphrey, 18. “It was just so crazy.”

The accident unfolded about 7:15 p.m. when the driver of a white Mercedes-Benz hit a Nissan Murano that was stopped at a light. As he tried to flee, he then struck the 56-year-old woman, who was getting into her Toyota Sienna near Stanley Ave., police said.


Police: Man finds skull in front yard of California home - Every man likes to get a little skull once in awhile..... Next week I hope to find some tail....

 — Authorities say a man bringing in his trash can from the street found a human skull in the front yard of his home and called police.
Investigators also found several bones along the road not far from the skull, Bakersfield Police Department Sgt. Gary Carruesco said Wednesday.
The skeletal remains first discovered Monday all appear to be from the same person, Carruesco said.
The Kern County Coroner's Office is trying to identify the remains. The coroner is also working to determine the cause of death and how long ago the person died.

Missing 22-year-old Jeannie Schuur body found by hunters in Illinois Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge

The body of a missing 22-year-old Murphysboro woman has been found by hunters in a southern Illinois national wildlife refuge.

The Williamson County Sheriff's Office says that Jeannie Schuur's body was found Thursday on land in the Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge.

Family members reported her missing on Monday after she was last seen two days earlier walking away from a friend's home.

An autopsy is scheduled for Friday. The county's Major Case Squad has been activated to investigate Schuur's death.

Missing female bodies popping up all over.... Remains found in hunt for missing 15 year old Texas Girl, Rosemary Diaz, 25 years to the day after she disappeared

The remains of a 15-year-old girl are believed to have been found in Texas, 25 years to the day after she went missing.

Rosemary Diaz disappeared on Nov. 24 1990 after leaving work at a country food store near her home in Danevang.

Investigators believe they have now cracked the mystery in their search for the missing teenager when they found bone fragments at a house belonging to a suspect.

Wharton County law enforcement authorities called in Texas EquuSearch to assist when the remarkable breakthrough was made.

"We got lucky. We found a ring. We all cried," said EquuSearch founder Tim Miller, reported

Following an excavation of the site the following day, more remains were found.

PHOTO: White House undergoes holiday lockdown after man jumps fence

A man draped in an American flag climbed over the fence at the White House on Thursday, prompting a lockdown as the first family celebrated Thanksgiving.

The man was immediately apprehended and taken into custody pending criminal charges, the Secret Service said in a statement. The incident took place about 2:45 p.m. EST.

An image of a man atop a section of fence in front of the North Lawn was posted on the website of television station WJLA. Another image showed the man standing on the lawn with his arms raised in victory.

A witness to the incident, Victoria Pena of Houston, said the man was standing with other people visiting the White House compound when he rushed toward the fence carrying what appeared to be a binder.

"I just heard him take a big, deep breath and whisper to himself, 'All right, let's do this' and he took off," Pena said. "It was chaotic. Everyone around us was yelling and kids were crying. It was pretty unexpected."

Chicago Teachers union leader Karen "Death Bed" Lewis joins Friday march, urges all members to attend!

Chicago Teachers Union president Karen Lewis is joining the “Black Friday” march on Michigan Avenue to protest the shooting death of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald, who died after a Chicago Police officer shot him 16 times.

Lewis rallied thousands of her members earlier this week in Grant Park, giving a speech in which she highlighted injustices and inequality throughout the city.

“It is time to turn our pain into power,” Lewis said Thursday, announcing her participation in the march hosted by the Rev. Jesse Jackson, a CTU ally who prayed in Grant Park with her. She also welcomed CTU members to “express their outrage and dignity.”

“I am appalled at the level of leadership exhibited by city officials in this case,” she continued....


94-year-old BLACK San Francisco Bay area U.S. park ranger Betty Soskin says she has been asked to light the National Christmas tree at the White House because whitie isn't invited to Obama's race baiting White House

A 94-year-old San Francisco Bay area U.S. park ranger says she has been asked to light the National Christmas tree at the White House.
KGO-TV reports ( Betty Soskin says she was absolutely stunned by last week's invitation.
Soskin works as an interpretive ranger at the Rosie the Riveter World War II Home Front National Historic Park in Richmond.
The Richmond resident is the oldest full-time park ranger in the country.
Not only will she light the tree next Thursday at the White House she will also introduce President Barack Obama.
Soskin made headlines two years ago when she complained about the government furlough saying at her age she didn't have time to waste sitting at home.

President Barack Obama has viewed the video of the fatal police shooting of Laquan McDonald, saying in a Facebook post Wednesday that he was deeply disturbed by it while "personally grateful" that Chicago protests in the aftermath of the video’s release were peaceful.

On Thanksgiving, he asked people to remember those who have suffered “tragic loss.”

He also asked Americans to be grateful for the overwhelming majority in law enforcement who "protect our communities with honor."

Crystal "Meth" Lake man, Axel Salemi, 18, killed kitten over fight about bong with his SISTER: prosecutor

Axel Salemi will have the black salami "slipped" to him in jail
 The 18-year-old man accused of killing a kitten with his bare hands had become enraged during an argument with his sister over a bong, a prosecutor said in court Wednesday.

The judge in the case refused to lower the bond for Axel Salemi, 18. He is accused of killing the 7-week-old kitten that his mother, who runs an animal rescue out of their Crystal Lake home, had taken in, officials said.

Salemi is accused of felony aggravated animal cruelty and criminal damage to a domesticated animal.

Salemi's attorney, Assistant Public Defender Grant Tucker, asked that Salemi's bond be reduced to $10,000 from $20,000. Tucker said Salemi is a student at McHenry County College and works at a restaurant in McHenry. The lawyer said that if Salemi is released on bond, he will live in Chicago with his grandfather, who does not own any pets. Tucker also said Salemi will undergo psychiatric counseling.

But Judge Michael Feetterer said that though Salemi is young and presumed innocent, the violent nature of Salemi's alleged crime concerns him.

Thanksgiving Celebration in a Section 8 Black Apartment Complex

THE FAKE NEGRO REV AL SHARPTON: Invite A Muslim To Thanksgiving Dinner (And kill them???)

For the last 24 years of National Action Network's (NAN) existence, I have utilized Thanksgiving Day to serve and eat with the homeless and seniors at our headquarters in New York City. I chose to turn a day that I have serious problems with, given the history of what was done to Native Americans, into a day of family and community to show that we can extend ourselves beyond our own comfort.
We will continue that tradition this Thursday, but I have also particularly reached out to Muslims to join us in our Harlem headquarters and chapters around the country that follow the Thanksgiving NAN tradition. We hope to set one of the examples of how we must use every opportunity to counter the Islamophobia and fear mongering that some GOP Presidential candidates and others on the right have purposely and blatantly tried to whip up as a result of the recent Paris attacks. It is dangerous, despicable and has no place in our society. People of goodwill must refute such behavior in every way we can. To that end, I say, invite a Muslim to Thanksgiving dinner.

Cook County Judge Peggy Chiampas Rips Media, Protesters for Ignoring Shooting of 11-Black Year-Old black Girl in Court

COOK COUNTY CRIMINAL COURTHOUSE — The Auburn Gresham man who shot an 11-year-old girl in August was aiming for her adult cousin, prosecutors said Wednesday — but there were few outsiders in the courtroom to hear it.
"Why don't we have a packed courtroom for this?" Cook County Judge Peggy Chiampas demanded to know as Cordero Harris, 27, stood before her Wednesday afternoon on charges of aggravated battery and aggravated assault.
Minutes earlier, activist Malcolm London — who'd been charged with battery to policefollowing a Laquon McDonald protest Tuesday evening — appeared in the same court room.
When charges against London were dropped, the myriad activists, protestors and reporters who had flooded Chiampas' courtroom to see London, stood up and left. Chiampas had to pause proceedings to account for the exodus.
"Why don't we have every single press person in the room for this case? For an 11-year-old child?" Chiampas bellowed Wednesday afternoon. "Why aren't there people protesting outside for this case?"
Harris is accused of shooting an 11-year-old girl in her arm about 11 a.m. on Aug. 17 during a drive-by shooting in the 8700 block of South Sangamon Street.
It was a Monday. There was little to no news coverage at the time. Police officials did not send a news release about the man being charged.
The girl had been walking with her cousin, a 20-year-old man, Assistant State's Attorney Lorraine Scaduto said during Harris' bond hearing. Authorities believe the cousin was the intended target.
Harris fled to Iowa after the shooting, Scaduto said, and police issued a warrant. According to a police report, Harris was arrested Monday.
At the time of the shooting, Harris was on parole for escaping electronic monitoring, prosecutors said. He has two prior gun convictions.
Chiampas on Wednesday ordered Harris without bail, noting that Harris "aimed for a 20-year-old and instead struck an 11-year-old child who was on the street talking to [her] cousin."

MIAMI FLORIDA - Illegal Beaner Derek Medina who killed his wife Jennifer Alfonso and posted a photo of the bloody corpse on Facebook was convicted Wednesday of second-degree murder after failing to convince a jury that he shot her eight times in self-defense

MIAMI — A Florida man who killed his wife and posted a photo of the bloody corpse on Facebook was convicted Wednesday of second-degree murder after failing to convince a jury that he shot her eight times in self-defense.
The jury verdict came in the third week of Derek Medina’s trial in the August 2013 killing of 27-year-old Jennifer Alfonso at their South Miami home. Medina told police in a videotaped statement he shot his wife during an altercation in which she threatened him with a knife.

17 YEAR OLD COLORED BOY Giovanni Cotto Charged with Shooting Pennsylvania State Trooper in Shoulder

A 17-year-old who allegedly shot a Pennsylvania State Trooper during a traffic stop Tuesday morning has been arrested on attempted murder, assault, and reckless endangerment charges, authorities confirm to PEOPLE. 

Giovanni Cotto also faces numerous weapons violations following Tuesday morning's shooting incident. 

Police allege Cotto was one of four men asked to step out of a car that was stopped for having an expired registration along Interstate 76 in Philadelphia, according to a police spokesman. 

As soon as police handcuffed one of the four suspects, the 17-year-old Cotto allegedly hopped in the car and took off. A chase ensued, and durign the pursuit, Cotto allegedly fired on Pennsylvania State Trooper Patrick Casey, the spokesman says. 

The chase ended when Cotto allegedly steered the vehicle into the back of a school bus, according to the spokesman. 

The crash sparked a fire that consumed the bus and the car, authorities say. 

Cotto allegedly exited the disabled car and continued firing at Casey's patrol unit. Casey, according to the spokesman, fired back, shooting several rounds through his car's windshield. 

Casey was struck in the shoulder during the exchange, and was released Wednesday morning after spending the night in an area hospital. 

In video shot by local media, Casey exited the hospital smiling, and shouted, "Let's go, Eagles!" 

Cotto is being held on $3 million bail. Information about his attorney was unavailable Wednesday.

VIDEO: Watch How Texans Respond When a Feral Colored Criminal Allegedly Snatches 84-Year-Old White Woman’s Purse in Walmart

 When shoppers at a Texas Walmart witnessed a NEGRO grabbing an 84-year-old WHITE woman’s purse, they didn’t let him get away.

According to cell phone video, several shoppers in Waco chased the suspect out of the store and scuffled with him until police could arrive. At one moment, when the suspect started to run away, one woman fired a gun above his head.
Three men chased the suspect and eventually tackled him and held him until police arrived. The woman who fired the gun calmly walked away from the suspect, got back into her truck and drove away. She is participating in the police investigation, according to KTRK-TV.
The unidentified woman turned herself in to police after media reports of the video showing her shooting the gun were aired. Police said Monday afternoon that the woman was “released pending further investigation” and that, once the investigation is done, her case will be forwarded to a grand jury, according to KWTX-TV.
KTRK reported that police arrested the alleged thief, Andre Dawson, 27, and recovered the woman’s purse.

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani DEFENDS white Chicago cop Jason Van Dyke charged with murder after shooting black teenager Laquan McDonald 16 times

Thanks to True News USA Blogspot for pointing this item out.

Looks like True News and the British press are the only ones who know how to report a news story.

Originating story here:    

He told Fox News that Laquan McDonald had 'committed a crime
Added that Chicago has a 'sickness' because crime is 'out of control 
The 37-year-old cop gunned down the 17-year-old in the middle of a street
Has been charged with murder and is being held without bail Protests erupted when a video of the shooting was released

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani has defended the Chicago cop who shot a suspect 16 times - insisting he 'had a right' to do so because the teenager had 'committed a crime'.
Jason Van Dyke has been charged with murder after he gunned down 17-year-old Laquan McDonald in the middle of the street in October 14.
Protests erupted after horrifying video showed Van Dyke, 37, shooting at him at point-blank for 13 seconds - only stopping once to reload.
But the ex-Republican politician Guliani believes the embattled cop's actions were reasonable.
In an interview with Fox and Friends on Wednesday, he said: 'First, he committed a crime. Second, police had a right to stop him.'
He went on to blast Chicago's crime rates saying they were 'out of control'. However he didn't go into detail or give any evidence.
'There's something really wrong with the city of Chicago. There's a sickness in Chicago,' he said.
'Their murder rate is out of control as compared to New York and some other American cities.'
During the interview he also branded President Obama's climate change policies as 'absurd'.
He also boasted that he was the first mayor to put cops in mosques in New York City.  
Sarcastically, he added: 'I really feel very stupid. I never thought of the fact that if we just wage war on global warming, we could defeat ISIS. That's really gonna shake 'em up. I mean, when we reduce carbon emissions, ISIS is just going to fold .'

Hundreds of protesters took to the streets within hours of the video's release on Tuesday, chanting '16 shots' and forming human blockades across roads in the city's West Side. Other demonstrators gathered outside police stations as at least two people were arrested in connection to the protests.
The nearly seven-minute video shows McDonald, who was armed with a small knife, walking towards police cars stopped on a four-lane road. With his hand near his left pocket, the teenager walks away from two officers who have their guns drawn.
He was reportedly told to drop the knife, but there is no sound on the video to verify the claim. McDonald is seen spinning around and falling to the ground as Van Dyke opens fire at point-blank range.
The officer continues to shoot even as the teenager falls to the ground. Smoke is later seen rising from his lifeless body, apparently from shots fired by Van Dyke. An autopsy report showed McDonald was shot at least twice in the back. It also revealed there was PCP in his system when he died.

Feral Negroes with a no stripper tipping past Daymond Hooks, 29 & Phillip Key Jr., 32, charged in fatal Akron Ohio strip club shooting of Jerry Stallings

AKRON, Ohio — An Akron man is accused of fatally shooting a 32-year-old man inside an Akron strip club after he had been kicked out of the bar for fighting earlier in the night over not tipping any of the strippers.
Daymond Hooks, 29, is charged with murder and felonious assault in connection with the Nov. 17 shooting at Centerfold's strip club that ended in the death of Jerry Stallings. 
Phillip Key Jr., 32, of Akron is also charged with complicity to murder. Neither man is in police custody and warrants were issued Friday for their arrest.
Hooks and Stallings argued and eventually fought inside the club in the 1300 block of East Archwood Avenue. Stallings was on top of Hooks hitting him when the fight broke up, according to court records. 
The owner asked Hooks several of his friends to leave after the fight ended. 
Surveillance video recorded Hooks leaving the strip club, then returning a short time later, according to Summit County Medical Examiner records.
He and his friends surrounded Stallings. Key sucker-punched Stallings and tackled him into the bar, according to court records. Hooks pulled out a gun and fired once, striking Stallings in the chest. 
Stallings grabbed Hooks and pulled him to the ground after being shot, court records say. Stallings died on the ground.
Hooks got up and left with his friends. He later admitted to police to firing a gunshot inside the bar but denied shooting anyone, court records say. 
Stallings had a bruised lip and cuts on his knuckles, according to medical examiner records. 
Akron police have been called to the strip club 36 other times since 2012. Akron police detectives in 2014 conducted an undercover investigation into drug dealing in the club's parking lot that netted three arrests.
Hook's criminal history includes leading Akron police on a car chase in 2008. He was also sentenced to one year in prison for domestic violence in 2010.
Key's criminal convictions for include forgery, breaking and entering and domestic violence.

Harris County (Georgia) Sheriff Mike Jolley - Sheriff's 'politically incorrect' sign draws strong reaction

In an effort to "stir people's belief and patriotism," Harris County Sheriff Mike Jolley posted a new sign Tuesday morning outside of his department that says his county is politically incorrect, and if you have a problem with that, you can leave.

Paid for by Jolley, the sign reads: "WARNING: Harris County is politically incorrect. We say: Merry Christmas, God Bless America and In God We Trust. We salute our troops and our flag. If this offends you… LEAVE!"

Jolly said Tuesday he was tired of the silent majority becoming "more silent."

"It's time for the silent majority to stand up for our beliefs and not be ashamed," he said.

He's received overwhelming support for the sign that cost him $553, he said. He purchased it from D&S Sign Company on Linwood Boulevard in Columbus. Jolley said several citizens have wanted to post one on their property.

Some have even sent checks.

"The sign has been purchased double," he said.

"I'm humbled by all of the support," the sheriff said. "Surprised and humbled by it. Maybe the silent majority isn't going to be silent anymore."

Jolley said he has approximately 75 employees in his office. When asked how those who perhaps aren't Christians may feel, Jolley said "they're more than welcome to worship whatever God they choose fit."

"For me and mine, we worship Jesus Christ."

As for what he hopes to achieve with the sign, Jolly said, "Coming up on Thanksgiving, maybe somebody will be thankful for something we have. …"

Jolley has been the sheriff of Harris County for six terms.

Portland police officer John Hurlman, a 24-year bureau veteran, removed from street after Twitter message about Black Lives Matter

The End of America as we know it... The lawless "Niggas" now run the country

A Portland police officer who wrote a Twitter message complaining that he'd be stuck late at work Friday night "to babysit these fools,'' referring to a planned Black Lives Matter-Not Black Friday march at Lloyd Center, has been taken off the street while an internal investigation proceeds.
Portland police Acting Chief Donna Henderson, filling in for Chief Larry O'Dea who is off until next week, announced the investigation Tuesday afternoon in a news release.
"I am highly offended, and I think other people should be,'' said Teressa Raiford, a community activist involved in Don't Shoot Portland. "I think it's very unprofessional, especially someone in his position.''
Officer John Hurlman, a 24-year bureau veteran, removed the post from his Twitter feed, but a screen shot was caught by others.
His message read, "Black Lives Matter is planning to protest at Lloyd Center on black Friday. Oh joy, stuck late again at work to babysit these fools."
Henderson said she learned of the message on Tuesday. Hurlman did not return a phone message for comment.
"This post is in no way a reflection of how members of the Portland Police Bureau view these community groups or their peaceful expression of free speech,'' Henderson said, in a prepared statement. "Just as with any protest or demonstration, police will work to ensure a safe, secure and orderly event for all community members and to minimize disruptions to traffic.''
This is not the first time Hurlman, a North Precinct officer who works day shift, has gotten into trouble for an electronic message.
In September 2012, Hurlman sent an email message on his patrol car's mobile computer that went out to the entire police force by accident. It was while he was seated in his patrol car, listening to radio coverage of a news conference where Oregon's U.S. Attorney and members of the U.S. Department of Justice announced that a federal investigation had found Portland police engaged in a pattern of excessive force against people suffering from mental illness.
Annoyed by the outcome, Hurlman intended to respond to another officer's email but sent a message to the entire police force, writing something like, "This is the same DOJ or people who created Waco and Ruby Ridge."
Afterwards, Hurlman told The Oregonian that it was a "knee-jerk reaction,'' and he apologized for it.  At that time, his precinct commander Mike Leloff called him into his office and gave him a stern warning. Hurlman then said he was advised to be careful about what he says and remain respectful.
The Black Lives Matter, Not Black Friday march is scheduled from 1 to 10 p.m. Friday at Holladay Park across from Lloyd Center Mall. It's to protest the year's high-profile police killings of people of color around the nation and other police brutality, the event's Facebook page says.
Henderson, the acting police chief, in her prepared statement, said she recognizes and understands that "tensions are running high across the United States, especially with recent incidents in other cities.''
"At the Portland Police Bureau, we are mindful of that and remain committed to building relationships and trust in the community we serve,'' Henderson said.
