At least 8 Male Blacks to be Charged in the Shooting Murder of a White 2-year-old John Swoveland Jr. of South Bend, IN

We watched the media purposely blow up America with the slanted coverage of the justified shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman. Where is the news coverage for outrageous shooting murder of a two year old, John Swoveland Jr.????
There is NONE.

Eight people are facing criminal charges for their involvement in the murder of 2-year-old John Swoveland Jr. of South Bend. Police say the shooting happened during a fight between two rival gangs.

Two of the eight suspects are still on the run, say police, and are armed and dangerous.

Those charged are:

Joshua Hodge - 18 years old - charged with assisting a criminal

Tarez Buchanon - 19 - charged with murder and attempted murder

Xavier Prim - 23 - charged with assisting a criminal

Daniel Williams - 17-years old - Charged with assisting a criminal, carrying a handgun without a license within 1,000 feet of school property

Robert Griffin - 19 Charged with murder and attempted murder

There are also three juveniles who will be charged as adults: 15-year-old Cedric Washington Jr., 17-year-old Malcom Buchanon and 15-year-old Tyre Bradbury.

The Buchanan's, along with Bradbury, Washington Jr. and Williams are also being charged with gang enhancement.

Robert L. Griffin and Xavier Primm ARE NOT in custody. Police say they are still on the loose and are considered armed and dangerous.

Investigators say a stray bullet hit Swoveland in the chest last week while he played outside a relative's home on Campeau Street. They say the shots were fired while two gangs were fighting blocks away.

The two rival gangs met up at Coquillard Park for a fight. Things escalated. People pulled out guns and started shooting.

Court documents show a bullet from one of those guns, a revolver, traveled three blocks before it hit the young boy.

The day before the shooting, members of two rival gangs were involved in a fist fight: "Westside" gang and the "Eastside/Evilside" gang.


LAPD: Killed Los Angeles Motorcycle Police Officer Christopher Cortijo, 51, a 26 year veteran is mourned at large downtown ceremony

Hundreds of uniformed police officers gathered in downtown Los Angeles early Tuesday to pay their final respects to a veteran LAPD motorcycle officer who died earlier this month after being struck by a driver suspected of being under the influence of cocaine.

A 26-year veteran of the LAPD, Christopher Cortijo, 51, had been assigned to the Valley Traffic Division when he was struck from behind on April 5 by an SUV.

At a funeral Mass at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, colleagues remembered him as a man who so cherished his role as a motorcycle cop that he wore a leather motorcycle jacket even in the soaring San Fernando Valley heat. He was known throughout the department for his large mustache, his sense of humor and his compassion, they said.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel orders Chicago Public Schools: Air conditioning in all classrooms in 5 years

Who would have image that school classrooms would be air conditioned by the year 2020!
What's next? Indoor plumbing & electric lights?

Sneed hears Mayor Rahm Emanuel has a cool new plan in the works.

It’s called air conditioning for every classroom in Chicago.

† To wit: Sneed is told Emanuel has now ordered the Chicago Public School system to add air conditioning to every classroom in the city that doesn’t have it . . . starting this summer.

Two Wauconda, Illinois police officers have been cleared in the fatal shooting of John Nightingale who was armed with a handgun

Two Wauconda police officers have been cleared in a shooting that left a man dead earlier this month, authorities said.

The officers — whom authorities are not naming — shot John Nightingale, 36, at his home in the northwest suburban town after he pointed a loaded handgun at them and refused to put it down, according to George Filenko, Round Lake Park police chief and head of the Lake County Major Crime Task Force, which handled the investigation.

"They identified themselves, and he pointed a handgun at them, which was loaded," said Lake County State's Attorney Mike Nerheim. "(The officers) ordered the individual to drop the gun, he didn't, and they felt that they were in fear of being shot. They responded by shooting the subject."


THIS JUST IN - U.S. Supreme Court UPHOLDS Michigan's ban on affirmative action in college admissions

The U.S. Supreme Court upheld Michigan's controversial ban on affirmative action in public college admissions in a divided opinion released Tuesday morning, preserving a status quo that's contributed to dwindling minority enrollment at the state's flagship colleges.

The high court's decision is a blow to the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, which has come under fire for low minority enrollment.

Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote the majority opinion, and the court was divided 6-2, with justice Elena Kagan recusing herself from the case; she was the U.S. solicitor general when the case was before the lower courts.

Blacks comprise just 4.6 percent of undergraduates this year, compared to 8.9 percent in 1995 and 7 percent in 2006.


U.S. Federal Law Enforcement Community create unit to combat Chicago black street violence

More Smoke and Mirrors...

When U.S. Attorney Zachary Fardon took his post six months ago amid pressure to curtail Chicago‘s relentless street violence, he was clear that federal authorities were not going to be able to swoop in and make arrests that would suddenly solve the intractable problem.

While Fardon has downplayed expectations, the announcement Monday that he has created a new Violent Crimes section at the U.S. Attorney’s Office clearly reflects how gun violence has become a high-profile issue for an office better known for combating terrorism and public corruption.

After months of consultations on how his office spends its resources, Fardon decided to spin off 16 prosecutors from the larger Narcotics and Gangs section to focus solely on how best to use federal statutes to go after violence, said Randall Samborn, a spokesman for Fardon.

Shootings of 5 kids rattle Chicago black neighborhood: 'I don't want to get shot'
Young children passing the playlot Monday peered at the maze of monkey bars, climbers and tunnels with wide eyes, but their loved ones made sure they didn't dare approach.
The red, blue and green equipment at Brownell School in Chicago's Park Manor neighborhood sat eerily empty less than 24 hours after five children were shot and wounded while walking nearby.
“We're not playing there,” Phillipa Griffin said sternly as her 3-year-old great-grandson tried to run to one of the slides.

Mayor Emanuel urges Chicago Residents to stand together against African American violence because we are down so many cops....We need any help we can get! .

Mayor Rahm Emanuel spoke passionately against gun violence Monday night after eight people were killed and nearly 40 — including a number of children — were wounded in weekend gunfire.

“These are our children. They’re full of hope and optimism,” Emanuel told a crowd gathered in the gymnasium next to St. Sabina Church, 1210 W. 78th Place. “The worst thing that should happen is that you fall off your bike, you get a knee scraped. Kids are immune now to the sound of gunfire.”

Emanuel made his comments flanked by family members of people killed by gunfire, several of whom he personally phoned after the deaths to express condolences.

“I am done making these phone calls. I have no words to say anymore,” he said before a slew of TV cameras, including one from CNN.

Not a good weekend for police - Two Indianapolis, Indiana police officers involved in Murder/Suicide 

Indianapolis police officers were grieving and reeling Thursday as word spread through the force that two of their own were dead — a husband and wife who had separated, and died in a murder-suicide.

Sgt. Ryan Anders and officer Kim Carmack were found dead about 5:40 p.m. inside a home in the 2400 block of Irishmore Court, near West 21st Street and Country Club Road on the Far Westside. Public Safety Director Troy Riggs said the two died of gunshot wounds.

Riggs said that someone had called police for a welfare check at that home. Once SWAT officers were at the scene but before they entered the home, police learned that a neighbor heard gunshots earlier that day, Riggs said. Police are unsure how long Anders and Carmack had been dead before they were found.

Carmack had obtained a protective order against Anders, and he was on administrative leave because of a domestic-violence issue, Indianapolis Police Chief Rick Hite said at a news conference. The couple's divorce was finalized last October, court records show.
