Edward BraceyDanny BoylePHILADELPHIA -- A judge has thrown out the death sentence imposed on a man convicted of the shooting death of a Philadelphia police officer more than two decades ago. Common Pleas Judge M. Teresa Sarmina ruled Friday that 50-year-old Edward Bracey had established below-average intellectual functioning as demonstrated by an IQ of 74. The U.S. Supreme Court has barred as unconstitutional execution of anyone deemed by a state to be mentally disabled. Bracey's sentence is now life in prison without possibility of parole in the 1991 murder of officer Daniel Boyle. The ruling prompted strong reaction from law enforcement.

Michael Lee WilsonBilly Don Alverson, 39, was executed in January 2011 and Darwin BrownRichard J HarjoRichard YostA man has been executed by lethal injection at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary almost 20 years after orchestrating the brutal assault and robbery of his co-worker at a Tulsa convenience store. Michael Lee Wilson, 38, was convicted in the killing of Richard Yost, 30, who aspired to one day manage the Quiktrip store. Wilson, who was convicted of first-degree murder, was the third person executed for the February 25, 1995, crime; the fourth defendant is serving a life term. Prison spokesman Jerry Massie said Wilson's time of death was 6:06 p.m. Two other men were executed for the crime in 2009 and 2011. Before the crime, the men loitered nearly an hour while waiting for customers to leave. Once they were gone, they struck Yost with an aluminum baseball bat 54 times in 131 seconds. They jostled a safe while removing it, but Wilson posed as Yost when a security company called to check an alarm. And to dampen suspicions among middle-of-the-night customers, Wilson put on Yost's uniform and worked the cash register as Yost lay dying in a pool of blood, beer and milk behind the cooler doors. Billy Don Alverson, 39, was executed in January 2011 and Darwin Brown, 32, was executed in January 2009. Richard J Harjo was sentenced to life because he was only 16 at the time of the murder. - (Black-on-white)

Ms Schlinger says she fought back and escaped with her life, but two spinal surgeries later, she still can't use her right arm or walk on her own. And since she's uninsured, she already owes one hospital $250,000 and is about to be kicked out of a third. It all goes back to December 20 when Ms Schlinger was in Aiken, South Carolina, to support her brother as he underwent open heart surgery. She was smoking a cigarette in the car at the nearby Quality Inn around 4am when she was approached by 23-year-old Michael Antwon Fuller who asked her for a cigarette and the two started talking about their relatives in the hospital. Fuller told her he was worried about his uncle at the hospital and wondered if she wouldn’t mind driving him up there so he could see him. ‘Yeah I’ll give you a ride if you promise not to hurt me,’ she joked, agreeing to drive him since the hospital was only four minutes away and Fuller was clean cut, well-spoken and well dressed... he allegedly hit her face with the mouth of his gun... Outside of the car, she says he pointed his gun at her and forced her to perform oral sex. - (Black-on-white)

Jerry SmithBetty Whiteley CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Police are looking for a man they said severely beat a woman during a robbery inside a West Side real estate agency. Jerry Smith, 39, is wanted for malicious wounding and robbery. At about 1:15 p.m., police were called to Home Pro Realty in regard to an alleged assault. Elizabeth Whitley, the agency's owner, told police that Smith had been loitering around her business for the past couple of days and she felt sorry for him. Smith asked Whitley for money on several occasions and said he was unemployed. He also said he was dealing with the recent death of his mother. On Monday, Smith went inside the real estate agency and asked Whitley for money again. Whitley said she didn't have any money and offered him a cup of coffee. Smith then became angry and struck Whitley in the face several times. Smith tried to pry Whitley's rings from her hands and attempted to rip off a necklace she was wearing. Whitley fought back and Smith allegedly chocked her with the necklace. Smith grabbed a screwdriver and stabbed Whitley several times under her chin. Smith rummaged through Whitley's purse and wallet before fleeing. Whitley was taken to CAMC General Hospital in serious condition. - (Black-on-white)

    70-year-old beaten by two blacks while trying to slow down cars in his neighborhood
no mugshot yetno mugshot yetBradenton, Florida - A 70-year-old man pushing his wife in a wheelchair with his granddaughter by his side says he was beaten for trying to slow a car down in his neighborhood. It happened around 6:00 p.m. Friday night along 60th Ave. Drive West in Bradenton. All James Gorman wanted was for a car speeding down the road to slow down. That car ended up stopping, and what happened next would end up putting James Gorman in the hospital. "That's a thumb in the eyeball," says James Gorman, who lives in West Bradenton. Gorman's black eye is just the start. He has a torn rotator cuff, broken glasses, and pounding headaches. They're all injuries he says he got while trying to protect the kids in his neighborhood. "I stepped up to slow him down," says Gorman. He didn't want kids to get hit, but he was the one that got beaten. "He grabbed my hands and proceeded to beat the daylight out me. He knocked me out," says Gorman. Gorman says the men responsible are two black males in their 20s. "They are about scummiest things I've ever seen," says Gorman. "It takes two young men to beat up a 70-year-old man," he says. - (Black-on-white)

    (Black) Connecticut psycho, posing as good Samaritan, rapes and murders college student days before Christmas in 1989
Sedrick CobbJulia AsheWhile Christmas shopping on Dec. 16, 1989, Julia Ashe lugged an armload of bags out of Bradlees in Waterbury, Conn., and discovered she had a flat tire. Miraculously, a man appeared and offered to help. But he was no good Samaritan. He was shopping too, in a sense. For two days, he had been lurking in his own car in that lot, waiting for lone women shoppers to arrive. Twice, he used a valve stem remover to deflate a tire on the car of likely victims, then offered to change the flats when they returned from shopping. The first two potential targets declined his help. His third target, Ashe, a 22-year-old University of Connecticut student, did not. Who could blame her? It was 18 degrees. As he slapped on Ashe’s spare tire, the man said his own car had broken down and asked for a lift to a gas station. She agreed. But once in the car, the man directed Ashe to drive to a wooded pull-off barely a mile from the store, beside a dam on City Mills Pond. Though well-concealed, the spot is a stone’s throw from busy I-84. As traffic whizzed by, he ordered Ashe into the back seat. He rifled her pocketbook, taking $300, and then raped her. But the horror was just beginning....
Meanwhile, detectives in the Waterbury area were closing in on a serial sex fiend. Sedrick Cobb, 27, of nearby Naugatuck, had been arrested that June in an attempted rape in his hometown. While that case was pending and Cobb was free, he became a suspect in two more sex assaults... - (Black-on-white)

    Woman sentenced to life in ’09 robbery and killing of SF man
Benjamin Peterson Merrill WHY NO MUGSHOT?MARTINEZ, Calif. — A Pittsburg woman who shot and killed a 22-year-old San Francisco man after robbing him of his iPhone and cash in 2009 will spend the rest of her life in prison, a Contra Costa County Superior Court judge ruled Friday. Kiarra Price, 24, was sentenced during an emotional hearing in a Martinez courtroom packed with her relatives and some two-dozen family members of Benjamin Merrill, the young man she was convicted of killing. Her accomplice and former girlfriend, 24-year-old Teareney Brown, was sentenced during the same hearing today to 14 years and eight months in prison after pleading guilty to voluntary manslaughter, kidnapping and second-degree robbery. Merrill, a Washington state native living in San Francisco, had been stood up by a date and was walking through San Francisco's Mission District around 1:30 a.m. on Nov. 3, 2009, when Price and Brown, then 20, pulled up in a car, asked for directions and began chatting with him. Intoxicated, Merrill accepted their offer to party with them and got into their car, according to police and prosecutors. But instead of heading back to the home he shared with roommates, Merrill ended up in Pittsburg, where Price and Brown stopped to pick up a friend, then-21-year-old Kendra Fells, who brought a gun. A short time later, they all drove to a park near the Pittsburg marina where the women robbed Merrill of his iPhone and pocket cash. For unknown reasons, Price shot Merrill, fatally wounding him, and the three women fled the scene. - (Black-on-white)
  • Women sentenced for San Francisco man's 2009 murder and robbery in Pittsburg
  • Another white Eloi falls into the maw
    A young white man, Benjamin Merrill, from a small, mostly white town in Washington State, was murdered on November 2nd in San Francisco by three young black women. Two women started talking with him on the street. He apparently got in their car and went to a house to pick up a third woman. They then drove to a park where they robbed and shot him dead. Since this young man’s home town, Belfair, is near where I live, I can tell you that the thought of three women preying upon a man is likely outside the realm of anything he could have conceived of. There are essentially no blacks in Belfair, so I don’t know what he might have thought about black women. The three women charged are: Kiarra Price, Teareney Brown and Kendra Fells. You can try, try in vain to find an article that includes pictures of the victim and any of the alleged killers in the same article.

    Black man suspected of 2nd slaying - Death of woman initially ruled a heart attack
Marcus Antonio RoyalEthalya “Faye” JonesMelis Mull was told her 73-year-old mother died of natural causes in 2011, but as she was cleaning out the Rockledge home, she found her mother’s purse missing and thought to herself something was wrong. She said a lot was on her mind at the time and didn’t immediately report her suspicion to police. Two-and-a-half years later, on Tuesday, the Brevard County Grand Jury indicted Marcus Royal, 34, on murder and other charges in Ann Marie Mull’s 2011 death. Royal, who has spent nearly half his life behind bars, is currently in jail awaiting trial on separate murder charges connected to the killing of 80-year-old Ethalya “Faye” Jones, in March in her Cocoa home. The two victims lived about four miles apart. Marcus Royal told police he choked her until she stopped breathing. - (Black-on-white)

  • Man has no regrets defending Oklahoma City pharmacy - May 27, 2009
    Jerome Ersland was back at work Thursday filling prenoscriptions and hoping that by taking the life of a 16-year-old boy two days earlier, he had saved others. Rubbing an oversized bandage on his left forearm, where he said he was grazed by a robber’s bullet, Ersland related details of what he said was a highly organized hit on the Reliable Discount Pharmacy. "I just regret anybody would get killed,” Ersland said. "But if I wouldn’t have been here, there would have been three people killed — the other pharmacist and the two techs.” He also recalls the angry voices of people who gathered outside the pharmacy Tuesday night, shouting that he was a racist who unnecessarily took a life of the Seeworth Academy charter school student, Antwun Parker. "There were a lot of black people gathered out there yelling and everything at my boss,” Ersland said.
    Ersland said he’s a veteran with disabilities from wounds he received in Operation Desert Storm, wears a cumbersome back brace and just had his latest back surgery six weeks ago. "All of a sudden, they started shooting,” he said. "They were attempting to kill me, but they didn’t know I had a gun. They said, ‘You’re gonna die.’ That’s when one of them shot at me, and that’s when he got my hand.” Ersland said he was thrown against a wall, but managed to go for the semiautomatic in his pocket.

    (Black) Attempted rape suspect Anthony Washington ordered to stand trial: (White) Student reveals details of attack
Melissa P.Anthony Jerome Washington JrEL CAJON, Calif. - A man accused of forcing an 18-year-old student into her car at knifepoint in a Grossmont College parking garage must stand trial on a charge of assault with intent to commit rape. The victim was leaning into her car shortly before 11:30 a.m. Oct. 22 at the western El Cajon campus when Anthony Jerome Washington Jr., 26, forced her into the vehicle. The victim, who was only identified as Melissa P., testified about her frightening ordeal in court on Wednesday. "He just kind of pushed me from my shoulders in and told me to get in the car," she said. Roth asked her about the terrifying moments when she came face-to-face with her attacker. When asked if she saw anything in the defendant's hands at the time, she responded, "A knife." When asked if she saw the knife before or after he pushed her, she answered, "I don't remember … as soon as I was like on my back, I saw the knife." Roth alleges that Washington had gone to the college with the specific purpose of "taking sex." "I was hearing voices to do bad things, to girls. To go get um, sex," he said. As the woman struggled to free herself, student Javier Partida was driving by in his car looking for a parking space when he saw what was happening. “Her legs were spread out under him,” he said on the witness stand. “I started honking my horn until I got a reaction.” That reaction was Washington walking away quickly. Partida helped the victim call for police. Deputies assigned to patrol the college then searched the campus, found a man matching the denoscription of the attacker nearby and took Washington into custody. When deputies arrested Washington, he had an 8-inch kitchen knife with a 4-inch blade inside his jacket. After being arrested, Washington allegedly confessed that he had planned to rape the student "and do whatever he had to in order to get his way." - (Black-on-white)

    (Black) Man Gets 110 Years For 2007 Murder Of (White) Store Clerk
Montago SuggsMelinda “Mindy” MorrellWAUKEGAN, Ill. – “Let me be clear, I intend that you spend the rest of your days in prison,” a Lake County judge said before sentencing a Wisconsin man to 110 years for the murder of a north suburban girl during a 2007 robbery. Montago Suggs convicted of killing 22-year-old Melinda “Mindy” Morrell during a robbery in Waukegan, was sentenced. In late September, a jury convicted Suggs, 29, of first-degree murder for shooting Morrell in the head during a May 21, 2007, robbery at the former Check ’n Go store. In a subsequent one-day bench trial, Suggs was also found guilty of attempted murder and armed robbery for pointing a gun at the head of a clerk and pulling the trigger at Ma & Pa’s Corner Store in Beach Park just five days after Morrell’s murder. Officials said the gun pointed at the clerk was loaded but no round was in the chamber, which likely saved the man’s life. Morrell’s mother, Sheryl Morrell read a statement to the court: “The person I love is gone, the life I have no longer exists, part of me is no more.” She added that her children, grandchildren and family have helped her realize she is still loved and needed. “I was with Mindy when she took her first breath, but he took her last,” Morrell said. “I will never forgive him for that.” - (Black-on-white)


(Unarmed White) Bus passengers fight back against (black) armed robber
Trevonnte BrownSEATTLE - Newly-released surveillance video shows a violent confrontation on a Seattle bus last month. A man was robbing passengers getting robbed at gunpoint - until they decided to fight back and stop the suspect cold. "It's the bus I take home every day," said Chris Briggs. But one evening his commute home became unforgettable. Police say 19-year-old Trevonnte Brown was robbing passengers at gunpoint. Briggs says that's the man who robbed him, just moments after pulling a gun on a woman - and shortly before a scuffle. "Then he came up to me and stuck the gun at me and took my phone," Briggs said. At first Briggs said no. "He jabbed me a little harder and said 'Don't make this any harder than it has to be.'" The video shows the suspect moving farther up the bus and pulling the gun again. That's when passengers had enough. Briggs jumped into the fray as horrified passengers scrambled to get off the bus. "People were kind of committed at that point," he said. They held the Brown down until police arrived and took control of the scene. Briggs doesn't think he and his fellow passengers should be considered heroes. "No it was just kind of one of those things that no one gave any thought to once things started happening," Briggs said. Brown has pleaded not guilty to all charges. - (Black-on-white)
