    Those who depend solely on the mainstream media for their news might be surprised to know that there has been a major spike in racial crime in America this year. Media observers state that when it comes to news reports on the subject, citizens are rarely informed of the seriousness of the racial tension, except when it is a certain type of racial tension. When whites attack blacks the media is quick to report it. But according to national columnist Thomas Sowell, when blacks attack whites, somehow those particular news stories never see the light of day. Fox News personality...
  • FBI Seeks To Charge George Zimmerman With Hate Crime

    SANFORD, Fla. — WFTV has learned charges against George Zimmerman could be getting more serious. State prosecutors said Zimmerman, a neighborhood watchman, profiled and stalked 17-year-old Trayvon Martin before killing him, so the FBI is now looking into charging him with a hate crime. Zimmerman admitted to killing Martin in February during a confrontation. However, he claims the shooting was in self-defense. He's facing a second-degree murder charge, which carries a maximum possible sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole. In the meantime, FBI investigators are actively questioning witnesses in the retreat at the Twin Lakes neighborhood,...

    The mother of a 13-year-old boy fatally shot when police say he tried to rob a couple said she is in shock that her son is dead -- and even more so at the circumstances surrounding his death. "I don't want it put out like he was a bad person or a mean person, because he wasn't," Latonya Walker, 38, said Tuesday. "This is not him, not who he was. Anybody that knew Ja'Quares knows that." Birmingham police said Ja'Quares Cortez Walker was in a car that pulled into the parking lot of the gated Skyview Condominiums at 407 Skyview...

    BIRMINGHAM, Alabama -- Shortly after holding a press conference this afternoon to say that authorities are not giving her the information she deserves about the shooting death of her 13-year-old son, Latonya Walker met with Jefferson County District Attorney Brandon Falls. Falls said Walker had not contacted him before she and community activist Frank Matthews held today's press conference. Falls said he met with her and Matthews today for 45 minutes. Normally, Falls said, the DA's office will not contact family members after a decision made not to file charges in a case. They never meet with family's of defendants...

    Norfolk-May 8: E.W. Jackson will be holding a press conference at the corner of Brambleton and Church Ave in Norfolk (Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Plaza) near the site of the Norfolk Mob attack on two innocent Virginian Pilot reporters on April 14.

    Amish children raised on rural farms in northern Indiana suffer from asthma and allergies less often even than Swiss farm kids, a group known to be relatively free from allergies, according to a new study. "The rates are very, very low," said Dr. Mark Holbreich, the study's lead author. "So there's something that we feel is even more protective in the Amish" than in European farming communities. What it is about growing up on farms -- and Amish farms in particular -- that seems to prevent allergies remains unclear. Researchers have long observed the so-called "farm effect" -- the low...

    The terrified homeowner was on the ground with a gun pressed to her head. She managed to shoot the burglar. Now Jackson County prosecutors have charged his alleged accomplice with second-degree murder, first-degree robbery and two counts of first-degree burglary. Dominique D. Richardson, 20, faces the murder charge because Missouri law allows accused accomplices to be charged with murder when a death occurs during the commission of a felony. The homeowner acted in self-defense and did not face any charges, authorities say. According to court documents, Richardson and Trevor Garms, 17, broke into a home in the 5800 block of...

Attackers came after her, pulling her hair, punching her head and causing a bloody scratch to the surface of her eye. She called 911. A recording told her all lines were busy. She called again. Busy. On her third try, she got through and, hysterical, could scream only their location. Church and Brambleton. Church and Brambleton. Church and Brambleton. It happened four blocks from where they work, here at The...
