Mental state of Midtown
shooting suspect to be evaluated

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, by Marcus K. Garner

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 1/31/2013 2:08:20 AM

Former Midtown security guard Nkosi Thandiwe will be evaluated Wednesday night to determine if his mental state during a deadly July 15, 2011 shooting spree was so disturbed that a jury could find him “not guilty by reason of insanity.” Thandiwe’s attorney made the last-minute request Wednesday after his client testified, admitting to fatally shooting Brittney Watts amid a trance-like state. “It was almost like watching myself in action,” Thandiwe told a Fulton County jury on the second day of his murder trial. “I tell her to get out of (her) car. She screams. I fire. She drops

Black guy all but admits that he went out hunting white people (3 shot, 1 dead, 1 paralyzed), but says this caused by insanity fueled by what he learned in anthropology classes and by the presence of a couple of white people at a meeting about putting the black community on "equal footing."

No mention of "hate crime," no national day of indignation and dialogue. I believe this is the first time I´ve heard about this incident, matter of fact; they hide these so cleverly (example, the headline of the article).

Yes... Killer is a victim of the Racist mantra promoted by the left every day... white people must pay. This is clearly a hate crime killer... Anthropology class my patootie... he just came from a black power meeting before he shot 3 whites.

A Brooklyn man was busted for a string of assaults against women that some have connected to the infamous “knockout game,” authorities said Friday. Barry Baldwin, 35, was charged with five incidents in which Jewish women were viciously punched for no apparent reason. “Everyone will sleep a little easier,” said Assemblyman Dov Hikind, who has been warning the community about the menace. Police picked up Baldwin last week, connected him to six incidents and charged him with six hate crimes because he targeted Jewish victims, sources said. He was arraigned Monday on five assaults, none as a hate crime, according to

Detroit police chief: Legal

Detroit — If more citizens were armed, criminals would think twice about attacking them, Detroit Police Chief James Craig said Thursday. Urban police chiefs are typically in favor of gun control or reluctant to discuss the issue, but Craig on Thursday was candid about how he’s changed his mind. (Snip) Craig said he started believing that legal gun owners can deter crime when he became police chief in Portland, Maine, in 2009. “Coming from California (Craig was on the Los Angeles police force for 28 years), where it takes an act of Congress to get a concealed weapon permit, I got to

The George Washington Bridge lane closures that led to paralyzing gridlock in Fort Lee this past September were ordered by someone outside the Port Authority and possibly for "an improper motive," said the state lawmaker leading the investigation into whether the closings were politically motivated. "There are documents that we’ve received that would indicate that there was somebody else who initiated this," said Assemblyman John Wisniewski. "There are words that are used that would imply an improper motive." (Snip) Wisniewski’s statements represent the most serious accusation yet that Fort Lee’s gridlock involved more than a poorly conceived traffic study of access

For the first time in the United States, a citizen who has legally registered a gun will have to submit to a renewal process. The consequences of not knowing about this new law or missing the specific 60-day window are dire. Starting on Jan. 2, every single D.C. resident who has registered a firearm since 1976 must go to police headquarters to pay a $48 fee and be photographed and fingerprinted. (Snip) If the registrant does not go to the police station within three months after a set time frame, the registration is revoked. That citizen is then in possession

British companies have placed nearly 8,000 job adverts for Romanians to come and work as taxi drivers, hotel staff, nurses and even doctors. The adverts – some of which have attracted more than 500 applicants – are written in the local language and have been posted on job-search websites in Romania. Some UK firms require only a ‘basic’ understanding of the English language and others say that previous experience is not necessary. (Snip) However, many jobs available will pay only the minimum wage of £6.31. This is seven times the minimum hourly rate of 88p in Romania. Recruitment agencies are advertising

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and her pick to run the city Fire Department said Monday they hope to hire and promote more minorities and women — even as the department cuts positions. In introducing Niles Ford, 48, as her selection to lead the Baltimore City Fire Department, Rawlings-Blake called a lack of diversity in the agency a "persistent problem." She pointed to Ford´s work as fire chief in Lincoln, Neb., where he created a plan to hire more minorities and women. "Dr. Ford was also a leader in opening the door for women and minorities in Lincoln, promoting the first female

Glen Burnie robbery, Md. — An elderly man is recovering after he was assaulted and robbed while walking home from an Anne Arundel County McDonald´s Monday. The 89-year-old victim told police three teenage boys struck him in the head and knocked him to the ground near Cloverleaf and Four Leaf Clover drives in Glen Burnie. (Snip) "He was struck in the head. He subsequently fell to the ground. He was apparently able to make it to his residence, and that´s when he was transported for treatment to an area hospital for serious injuries. I mean, it was a serious assault,"

Prices soar for some generic drugs

The widespread use of generic medications is supposed to save the health care system money, but huge price spikes in certain common, previously low-cost drugs is putting some of that savings in question. Nosebleed-level price increases of more than 100 percent, 1,000 percent and, in some cases, 6,000 percent and above are making it difficult for pharmacists to fill some prescriptions because insurance companies have been slow to adjust their reimbursements to reflect the price spikes. Large chain pharmacies have felt the pinch, but it´s been especially hard on independent pharmacists. "I had to turn away several patients

Fiat SpA has reached an agreement with the United Auto Workers to purchase the rest of Chrysler Group LLC. The $4.35 billion deal, which was announced Wednesday, marks the culmination of years of on-and-off negotiations between the Italian automaker and the union, which controls the retiree health care trust that owns a minority stake in the Auburn Hills automaker. In a message to employees worldwide, Fiat Chairman John Elkann and CEO Sergio Marchionne called it “a historic day” for both Fiat and Chrysler.

Bankrupt car charging firm funded

Despite a disastrous year for defunct car-charging company Ecotality, which went bankrupt only a few years after winning a $100 million federal grant, two high-level employees soon stand to receive hefty retention bonus payments even though the company has no future. Company lawyers say they need to pay the bonuses to make sure the two stick around during the dim final days as the company finalizes the transfer of its assets. A federal bankruptcy court in Arizona approved the bonus plan despite objections from creditors and government lawyers — though the judge capped the total at the $125,000 sought by the company.




N.J. homicides soared to
seven-year high in 2013
after surges in Newark, Trenton

Driven by unprecedented bloodshed in Trenton and the most violent 12-month stretch in Newark in nearly a quarter-century, homicides across New Jersey jumped to a seven-year high in 2013, a spike prosecutors and police officials tied to understaffed departments and a growing disregard for life. A Star-Ledger survey of county prosecutors’ offices found at least 409 people died violently last year. More than a quarter of those killings took place in Newark, where a spate of Christmas season slayings pushed the homicide total to 111, including one in the final hours of the year. The tally is the highest since 1990. In Trenton, the number of

For Los Angeles residents, the perfect holiday gift this year might have been a reusable grocery bag. On Wednesday, large grocery stores will be prohibited by law from providing free plastic bags. Shoppers will be required to bring their own bags when stocking up on food and goods, or pay 10 cents per paper bag provided by the grocery store. Smaller independent markets and liquor stores that sell groceries will become subject to the ban July 1. In backing the new law, Los Angeles City Council members cited concerns that the flimsy disposable bags often end up on city streets and eventually find their way to the ocean,

On Sunday, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney joined Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday for a wide-ranging interview about a number of political issues that dominated the landscape following the close of the 2012 election cycle. Romney dug into the Affordable Care Act’s roll-out, the contraception mandate which he signed into law in Massachusetts, and the Winter Olympics in Russia. Asked what “bothers” him the most about the ACA roll-out, Romney said that the onerous coverage requirements frustrated him the most. “it’s not just that the president tells people that they have to buy health insurance,” Romney said, “it’s that

Kudos to President Obama for giving his wife a birthday present we all can envy, indeed covet. CBS News reports: President Barack Obama is going to give his wife the birthday present that many parents can only dream of - time off, alone, without the children. The White House said on Saturday first lady Michelle Obama would stay in Hawaii, where the family has been on vacation for the last two weeks, rather than return home with her husband and their two girls. (Snip) Just imagine for a moment if President Obama would agree to leave the rest of us alone. How wonderful would that be? He does have it within his power to make the gift

The author of the widely disputed New York Times article on Benghazi repeatedly posed naked as a Princeton student. Far from the moderate journalist pose he strikes now, David D. Kirkpatrick was a prominent campus progressive and activist. Kirkpatrick was arrested for lewd conduct, advocated for classes on pornography, and even posed for Playgirl. “Kinky” Kirkpatrick had a “rather unusual habit of disrobing for photographers in public places,” reported The Daily Princetonian in January 22, 1990. “I’ve never been afraid to drop trou when it seemed like the right thing to do,” Kirkpatrick said of a Playgirl photo shoot he

The 122-meter (399-foot) cutter, the Polar Star, is responding to a Jan. 3 request from Australia, Russia and China to assist the Russian and Chinese ships because "there is sufficient concern that the vessels may not be able to free themselves from the ice," the Coast Guard said in a statement.

A Georgia couple was shocked and disgusted to find a racial slur scrawled on a valet ticket after a night out at a local restaurant. After Candea and Sam Aarons had dinner at the Spondivits restaurant in East Point, Ga., on New Year’s Day, they found that the valet tag still affixed to their key chain had the phrase “jungle fever” written on one side. The phrase is a racial slur for an interracial couple. Candea Aaron said she initially didn’t notice anything unusual in their interaction with the valet, but in previous visits the tag was always removed from their key before they received it back. “I’ve never had their [valet] tag left

Just hours after being sworn in as the city’s public advocate, Letitia James went on TV to claim that she played a key role in helping expose “the face of poverty in the City of New York” on the ‘front page of The New York Times. James, a former City Council member, said she had appointed a task force to examine conditions at the Auburn homeless shelter in her old Brooklyn district.

President Obama is pushing back against attempts to rein in the National Security Agency’s electronic intelligence collections, and well he should as commander-in-chief. After one federal judge ruled that the NSA’s collection of so-called telephone metadata was likely unconstitutional even under a special intelligence court’s authority, the administration sought permission from the special court for new action and petitioned to appeal the judge’s hyperventilations. Far more grounded was another court ruling, this one upholding metadata collection. (Snip)Snowden knowingly and brazenly stole vast troves of information that were kept secret for a reason.

The National Security Agency on Saturday released a statement in answer to questions from a senator about whether it “has spied, or is … currently spying, on members of Congress or other American elected officials”, in which it did not deny collecting communications from legislators of the US Congress to whom it says it is accountable. In a letter dated 3 January, Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont defined “spying” as “gathering metadata on calls made from official or personal phones, content from websites visited or emails sent, or collecting any other data from a third party not made available to
