Alicia Wilson, 15, and Shaknee Golay, 19, are each being charged with aggravated assault on a person older than 65 years of age. The incident happened about 9 p.m. Monday when dispatchers received a report of several teenagers chasing a man with a stick, the news release said. The victim,

Any one of them could have been Obama´s son--or daughter. Will the AG dismiss them from any prosecution?

Demetrius Wilson - 12
Javontae Wilson - 13
Keyon Black - 16
Alicia Wilson - 15
Shaknee Golay - 19

Nice kids. Crimes aside, why would you name a kid Shaknee? Javontae? Keyon? What´s your point? Sometimes I read these made up nonsensical names and ask whether the parent is just trying to find the most ridiculous name possible. Where does one go after Shaknee, LaShaknee? In the horrible movie, Kiss of Death, they talk about acronyms (ackonyms!) and caruso´s character says his is FAB. These kids are FAB.

They need to charge the parent(s? doubtful)as well. Two for the price of one and charge them with attempted murder which should be a hanging offense.

Once again black ferals attack a law abiding citizen - in this case a Senior Citizen - another special class.
No respect for themselves.
No respect for others.
When will Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Eric Holder demand the PARENTS be held financially and morally liable for these ferals?
Trayvon Martin´s parents should be held financially liable for all of George Zimmerman´s expenses under Florida´s Parental Responsibility statue.
Trayvon was EXPELLED from school and let loose upon a community already reeling from criminal assaults by these black ferals.
Sometimes the Profile fits.

All race issues aside, these "childrens" need to be brought under control. Imagine what thye are going to be like as adults. It would be a very interesting experiment for someone to watch them as they grow up into their late twenties (if they actually live that long- death by violent means comes early for these ghetto kids). We have developed a kind of social cancer that is eating the vitals of our nation away.

The shame is, because of political correctness and liberal media control, we can´t even establish a national debate on how to fix this.

What´s next?

Four out of the five of those negros are juveniles. How is that they are identified by name, when we´re usually told that juvenile´s names will not be released due to their age? Florida must have some different law regarding that.

Why do negro parents name their negro children those names? Do the parents not have the intelligence to understand that those names are a handicap? [That´s rhetorical question.]

Just a guess: the victim is Caucasian.

And I know of a black girl who pronounces her proper name "Fee-Mal-Ee"
Seems her delivery doctor entered "Female" on her birth certificate ahead of her surname because the mother had not yet assigned a name.
Her mother apparently thought the hospital had already named her "Female" (pronounced Feemalee) and decided to go with it. Maybe it was French?
And her proper name to this day is Female

#14, in Florida they often do print pictures of juvenile offenders. PC is not one of their strong suits. I don"t know about the laws, but I have seen this happening a number of times. They just don´t cater to criminals, young or old. (Except maybe in Miami, a liberal hotbed.)

Thank God these thugs were charged, but we must realize that probably NOTHING would have happened to them had the victim been 64 or under. This is insane! These criminals could have done just as much damage to a person of any age. The law worked in this case, but needs to be changed to include EVERYONE, not just people of a certain protected status.

Nothing will change until the mothers of these po little children sits in jail with them a few times.

As far as the names, I took a class at a tech school during the day once along with pregnant girls bused in and out all day from their home schools. In a conversation one day, they were thinking up names for a baby. One of them said "Do you think it sounds ghetto enough ?" They aim for ghetto names.

One high schooler had three kids before graduating. All they need to graduate is to show up for 12 years to receive a certificate of completion so they can work at Mickey D´s.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Sheesh! Talk about a complete ingrate... Many people suspect that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) instigated an over the top paramilitary confrontation with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy at the behest of Senator Harry Reid especially since the new BLM director, Neil Kornze, was an aide to Reid. So how does Harry´s son, Rory Reid, thank the BLM rangers for putting their lives at risk over desert tortoises that are being euthanized by the Feds? Why, he slams them as "losers" on Las Vegas television station KSNV where Rory serves as a commentator from the left. You can see Reid in

After his Masters victory, pro golfer Bubba Watson celebrated with his family at a Waffle House. Pictures tweeted from there went viral. Waffle House appreciated the appreciation. What´s not to like about this great story? Apparently some self-appointed nanny state-loving guardians of nutrition like Katherine Tallmadge believe that Watson set a bad example for Americans by eating there. Oh, and with her powers of telepathy, she just knows that Watson´s a complete phony about what he really eats. She went after Watson on one of Neil Cavuto´s Fox programs yesterday, and in doing so caught talk show host Rush Limbaugh´s

In fact, since 9/11 extremists affiliated with a variety of far-right wing ideologies, including white supremacists, anti-abortion extremists and anti-government militants, have killed more people in the United States than have extremists motivated by al Qaeda´s ideology.

It’s not every day that Bill O’Reilly accuses someone else of expressing “right-wing paranoia,” but that’s what happened Tuesday night when he faced off with Fox News contributor Monica Crowley over a proposed solution to the controversy over voter ID laws. O’Reilly began his show by giving a soft endorsement to an idea put forward by former President Bill Clinton that would add photos to social security cards, which American citizens are already required to have in their possession. “I am all for combating voter fraud by using voter I.D.,” Crowley told O’Reilly. “My issue with the social security card in particular

Sylvia Mathews Burwell, President Obama’s nominee to lead the country’s health care overhaul, remains entangled in a lawsuit brought by shareholders of MetLife accusing her of misleading investors as a director of one of the country’s biggest insurance companies. The federal lawsuit, filed in New York, says the company used a Social Security death index to stop making payments when beneficiaries died, but the company wasn’t as diligent about using the database to track deaths of its policyholders, which triggers payouts, the lawsuit said. Last year, a judge refused to toss a federal lawsuit against the company, including claims against Ms. Burwell

A Republican congressman has introduced a bill that would stop government paychecks for officials who have been found in contempt of Congress — a move that seems designed in the short term to go after Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. Mr. Holder has refused to cooperate with the House GOP’s probe into the Fast & Furious gun-walking operation, and the House has voted to find him in contempt. Mr. Holder is challenging that vote in court. Rep. Blake Farenthold, a Texas Republican who publicly excoriated Mr. Holder at a hearing last week, introduced the legislation just before Congress went on vacation,

The president and aides will observe the anniversary of the deadly attack behind closed doors at 2:29 p.m., exactly one year after two pressure cookers packed with shrapnel detonated near the finish line of the raise. “The president´s going to have a moment of silence in the Oval Office.

PETA is urging first lady Michelle Obama to substitute fake eggs for the 19,000 real ones to be used in Monday´s Easter Egg Roll, claiming that egg production is cruel and eating them unhealthy and a violation of her “Let´s Move!” agenda. "For chickens on egg factory farms, Easter is not a time of renewal or joy.

Fellela, pled guilty last week to illegally collecting more than $58,000 in Social Security benefits, according to local reports. Fellela pled guilty to five counts on charges of aggravated identity theft, credit card fraud, Social Security fraud and theft of government funds. This was not Fellela’s first brush with the law. In 1999, he first applied for Supplemental Social Security benefits — the benefits were ultimately terminated when he was

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004.
