  • Here’s what liberals DON’T want you to know about Louisiana shooting victim

    "So who is Alton Sterling? For starters, liberals should know he possessed an illegal firearm. As a felon with a lengthy rap sheet, Sterling is legally prohibited from possessing a firearm. Police records show Sterling had been a member of the Bloods gang, and had a list of offenses including battery, assault, drugs and weapons charges, and owed $25,000 in child support. He was also a registered pedophile, having impregnated a 14-year-old girl when he was 20. The media, by contrast, has portrayed him as a loving father of five."

    WASHINGTON - A dream for 100 years, the National Museum of African American History and Culture promises to become an instant favorite when it opens Sept. 24, its soaring spaces and magical views of the Mall a fitting setting for its tale of African-American history and achievement.

    Immigration is THE issue for 2016 Why is it that when African Americans whose families have been in this country for hundreds of years commit crimes they go to jail and when illegal immigrants commit crimes they get released? In Los Angeles, 95 percent of all outstanding warrants for homicide target illegal aliens, as do approximately two-thirds of all fugitive felony warrants. More than 60 percent of the Hispanic gangs in Southern California—whose membership is in the tens of thousands—is illegal. These gangs are involved with drug-distribution schemes, extortion, drive-by assassinations, assaults, and robberies. According to the analysis conducted by...

    The East Coast leader of the Bloods ordered police to fly his mother from Delaware to New York City before deliberately running into the line of fire at the end of a six-hour stand-off. Garland 'S.I.' Tyree, 38, said 'coming out now, I love you' on the phone to his mother at around midday on Friday and told police he agreed to surrender. But when he emerged from his Staten Island home wearing a bullet proof vest and armed with an AK-47, he opened fire. A police officer returned fire, killing Tyree.

    On June 6, a 16-year-old Baltimore girl named Arnesha Bowers went to a house party in West Baltimore where she met Donay Dixon, 23, and John Childs, 20. Later that night, Dixon and Childs followed Bowers to her northeast Baltimore home. Once there, police allege, the duo kicked in the basement window, sexually assaulted Bowers, strangled her with an extension cord, and then set her and the house on fire. Dixon and Childs — purportedly members of the Bloods street organization — made off with $40, a laptop and an iPad. According to reports, the pair committed the heinous crime...

    It was just a few weeks ago when Black gangs were being praised by clergy and authorities in Baltimore for doing a better job than police of keeping the peace in the wake of the Freddie Gray riots. Since then the murder rate has skyrocketed as criminals have free rein in Baltimore as police, in response to being demonized by elected officials and the community, have held back from aggressively enforcing the law. Last Sunday morning, two reputed members of the Black gang the Bloods horrifically raped and murdered a sixteen year-old Black girl in the basement of her...

    The Los Angeles Police Department is ordering officers to ride in pairs because of a warning that street gangs made a pact to "take out" cops after a Baltimore man was fatally injured while in custody. L.A. officials said they made the call to issue the so-called "blue alert" out of an abundance of caution, and until they can assess how serious the threat is. In a statement issued earlier Monday, embattled Baltimore police announced they had received a "credible threat" that the Black Guerrilla Family, the Bloods, the Crips and other rivals planned to target officers.

    Such hypocrisy and reverse-racism is breathtaking. The brutal truth is Sharpton, Holder and Obama will never address this officer’s death because he was white and because they protect the black gangs out there. Officer Kevin Quick was kidnapped and murdered by four black gang members – they belong to the Bloods street gang known as the 99 Goon Syndicate out of Los Angeles. Quick was forced to drive from ATM to ATM to get money, then he was taken out in the woods and executed as a gang initiation rite. It never really made the news and it certainly didn’t...

    Bloods The Bloods gang originated in the streets of Los Angeles in the 1970s as a response to the Crips and the violence they imposed on the streets. In the 1980s, driven by profits from the distribution of crack cocaine, the ranks of the Bloods swelled, inducing many “entrepreneurial” members to migrate to other cities to set up new markets. The glorification of “gangster life” through movies such as “Colors” also encouraged youth throughout the country to emulate the Bloods culture, symbols and colors.

Authorities say a series of "clerical errors" caused the error involving 19-year-old Dontay Brannon, who was mistakenly released Monday despite the murder charges. Authorities say Brannon was taken that day to Hamilton police headquarters, where a relative paid 200 dollars in bail to get him released on burglary charges unrelated to the killings. Authorities, including the New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force, have been searching for Brannon since it became known that he was on...

A "gun culture," answers The Denver Post, under the headline "Williams' murder a cowardly gun crime." Suffice it to say that the murder of Darrent Williams would not have occurred, at least in the fashion it did, without a gun. But that fact in itself explains little. What is most horrifying about this crime was the killer's casual targeting of people he hardly knew or didn't know at all over what perhaps was a disagreement or a...

    NEW YORK -- About a minute or two before the Knicks-Nuggets brawl erupted Saturday night in Madison Square Garden, New York coach Isiah Thomas mentioned to Denver star Carmelo Anthony that it wouldn't be a good idea to go anywhere near the paint, according to a member of the Denver Nuggets organization. The message was unmistakable: A hard foul was coming. And when it came, the NBA had its first full-scale fight of the 2006-07 season. As it tries to stay in the race in the Western Conference, Denver now has a huge question to ponder: How long will Anthony...

The man he stands next to later goes on to tell how he would take care of snitches by "putting a hole in their...

    Bottles, rocks and fists flew during lunchtime Friday at Fontana High School. Students poured out of classrooms when they said a fire alarm rang around noon. They then saw what they described as a racial or gang-related riot erupting among about 500 students on the quad of the campus near Citrus Avenue. Some flocked to the chaotic melee with their cell phones taking pictures and recording video while others fled to get out of the way. Helicopters circled over the school. "There were fights everywhere - girls and guys," said Dalila Lizarraga, 16. Campus police officers sprinted across four lanes...

    Lawyers for another condemned inmate say Stanley Tookie Williams may have felt horrible pain. Prison officials allowed the execution of convicted murderer Stanley Tookie Williams to proceed, even though a nurse had failed to hook up a backup intravenous line minutes before authorities delivered the lethal injection drugs, according to court filings made public Tuesday. Defense attorneys for a man on death row at San Quentin cited the problem as part of a legal challenge to California's lethal injection procedure. Later this month, U.S. District Judge Jeremy Fogel in San Jose will hear the challenge, which asserts that condemned prisoners...

    After learning that New York City police officers have been receiving Islamic-culture training, the Big Apple's largest street communities, the Bloods and the Crips, criticized the NYPD and Mayor Bloomberg for discriminating against gangsta people. Furious gangsta community leaders demanded that a similar sensitivity training program be created to educate law enforcement members about the intricacies of "gangsta-culture," with its vibrant rituals, traditions, and etiquette. "The Crips community has been here since the seventies and we don't get no sensitivity program," said a concerned Crips activist who happens to be a minority. "The Muslims just showed up and they get...

    A Queens teen yesterday told a jury how he and two pals fatally beat and stabbed an unsuspecting boy as part of a brutal gang initiation. "Just take the money," Huang Chen, 18, begged his attackers as they stomped on his face and torso. But it wasn't his money they wanted. That was just a bonus to be divvied up after the killing, Nayquan Miller testified.
