Kendrick Johnson Confession: Enticing Carrot or Rotten Apple?

 Rumors are carried by haters, spread by fools, and accepted by idiots 

The anonymous email being touted by Victor Blackwell on CNN as proof of a confession to murder in the death of Kendrick Johnson has turned out to be nothing more than a cry for attention from a high school student and an "exclusive" for Victor Blackwell.

Clearing up the confusion: Marissa Alexander's Second Trial

In July 2014 Florida will once again be center stage for a controversial high profile case involving questions of an individual’s right to self-defense and the law commonly known as Stand Your Ground. The accused is, Marissa Alexander, a 31-year-old African American woman from Jacksonville, Florida, who was found guilty in May 2012 for aggravated assault and sentenced to a state-mandatory 20 years in prison. Marissa Alexander had argued that she fired a warning shot at her husband, Rico Gray, because she feared for her life and had suffered years of abuse. Marissa had, in fact, filed an injunction against him in 2009, and Marissa was arrested in 2010 for domestic violence against Rico Gray.  Marissa went on to marry Gray and they had a child together days before the warning shot incident. Rico Gray's 1994 record for domestic violence here.

Roland Martin and Benjamin Crump tag-teaming misinformation, Again

Roland Martin and Attorney Benjamin Crump go way back when it comes to misrepresenting facts in a high profile case.  The first I'd ever heard of Martin was the Trayvon Martin case.  Fresh from being fired from CNN for a homophobic tweet during a ball game, he was looking for another gig.  He found the Trayvon Martin case and the rest is gravy train history.

Kendrick Johnson was a good kid... as are the Bell brothers

Last week I interviewed a few people I was put in touch with by someone who is in Valdosta and knew KJ (Kendrick), Johnson.  We will call my source Phillip.  Phillip also knew the family of the two boys that CB King, Benjamin Crump (click link to hear Crump talk about the beating to Kendrick's face that did not happen), Victor Blackwell, Fred Rosen (via Ebony Magazine),  and the Johnson family are trying to railroad for the death of their son.

Nine year old Omaree Varela's pleas for help ignored by everyone and now he is dead

Updates at end of blog *last update 4/10/2014. In this heartbreaking 911 call you can hear the mother and step-father of little Omaree screaming and cursing at him.  I've edited in the house call made by police when dispatched after the little boy made the call.  You will see how smoothly this couple lies to police - police that never bothered to listen to the actual 911 call.
