Adults burn baby after forcing abortion on teenaged rape victim

REPUBLISHED FROM LIFE DYNAMICS BLOG:

Four people have been arrested after authorities say they viciously beat a 14-year-old rape victim to force an abortion and then attempted to burn the baby after the attack.

Four arrested teen pregnant abortion baby burned

The victim, who was eight months pregnant at the time of the beating, told police she was a virgin before a family member raped her in 2012.

As a result of the rape she became pregnant.

She said that she “did not tell anyone about the sexual assault because … she was embarrassed.”

According to reports, the girl’s relatives found out about the pregnancy between January and March 2013 and “became very nervous and were concerned about … [Child Protective Services] removing children from the residence,” the affidavit says.

After the beating the teen delivered the baby stillborn.

Police say that the adults then took the baby and tried to burn the child to cover their crime.

The teen remained quiet about the rape until May 22, 2015 when she was taken to police by another woman who said she witnessed part of the assault.

Police then arrested 27-year-old Cedric Jones, 45-year-old Sharon Jones, 25-year-old Cecila McDonald and 27-year-old Lonnell McDonald on charges of engaging in organized criminal activity. Police have not released the relationship each perpetrator had with the teen and all are not family members.

The Dallas Morning News reported the details of the assault as follows:

    Sharon Jones gave the girl “multiple doses of birth control pills, Plan B [emergency contraception] pills and cinnamon tablets … to abort the baby,” police said.

    After the pills failed to induce an abortion, Cecila McDonald pinned the girl down while Lonnell McDonald began “repeatedly bouncing up and down” while sitting on the girl’s abdomen. He also is accused of kicking the girl repeatedly.

    Cecila McDonald told her, “You ain’t about to get my kids taken away from me,” while Lonnell McDonald laughed, according to the affidavit.

Capture

Sharon Jones called Cedric Jones Jr. and told him to come over to the house.

Lonnell McDonald then allegedly told Jones when he arrived that “he had already been kicking the “s*** out of the b***.”

According to the affidavit the girl then began “throwing up and having severe cramps.”

WFAA reported these gruesome details:

    She was uncontrollably pushing and delivered what she believed was a stillborn baby … Accomplice Cecila McDonald entered the bathroom and placed the baby in a white plastic mop bucket and removed it from the room.

    At some point after the assault, the baby was placed in a short, pill-shaped, black metal charcoal grill and attempted to burn it.”

    The affidavit said the family members then plotted to dispose of the body.

    Accomplice Sharon Jones contacted suspect Cedric Jones Jr. approximately two days later and offered to pay him $25 if he would take care of the rest of it. Suspect Cedric Jones, along with a witness, returned to the location at which time Suspect Cedric Jones Jr. placed the remains in a dark green plastic bag with a red drawstring, placed it in his trunk, and stashed the remains in an unknown location.”

In their report entitled, “Under-the-Radar Violence in the Conflict Over Abortion,” Life Dynamics has documented that pregnant girls and women are often assaulted and even murdered when they fail to submit to abortion.

Life Dynamics has also documented that abortion is used to cover for pedophiles who rape and impregnate young girls. That report, entitled, The Cover-Up of Child Sexual Abuse, can be read here.

Hillary vid claims the abortion radical is pro-family

Posted in Hillary clinton with tags , , , , , , , , on December 4, 2014 by saynsumthn

A well-marketed video and website “Stand with Hillary” claims the former first lady and 2016 presidential hopeful stands for families.

The only problem with that statement is that Hillary is 100% pro-abortion on demand for any reason at any stage of pregnancy. Exactly, how is that pro-family again?

SWHillary Fighs Families

Hillary Clinton once accepted Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award.

Sanger was an advocate of racist eugenics and she praised the sterilization of the so-called “unfit.”

In this video, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton accepts the Margaret Sanger Award at the 2009 Planned Parenthood Honors Gala in Houston, Texas, where she states, “I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision,” said Hillary Rodham Clinton, “I am really in awe of her, there are a lot of lessons we can learn from her life

Margaret Sanger’s Planned Parenthood group still practices Black Genocide according to a well documented film: Maafa21: Black Genocide in 21st Century America.

Hillary believes abortion is a fundamental American value.

Hillary CLinto Cnngrats NARAL

I want to congratulate NARAL for calling choice what it is, a fundamental American value, and Freedom.” ~ Hillary Clinton told the abortion lobbying group on the 26th anniversary of Roe. V. Wade which legalized abortion on demand.

Given that millions of babies are slaughtered by abortion the term Happy Birthday to an advocate of child killing in the womb seems a bit ironic, don’t you think?

WFAA: Rep. Johnson: ‘I did not have an ethical alarm go off’

New revelations Thursday further call into question the judgment of Dallas Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson when it comes to awarding scholarships.

She says she never knew there was a rule against giving Congressional Black Caucus Foundation scholarships to family and friends, and she says she helps everyone who calls her for help.

But her opponent in the upcoming election asks: Is that really the case?

Johnson told News 8 there’s a simple explanation why she doled out scholarships to relatives and children of a staff member ineligible for them under foundation rules. “I never saw any rules for the scholarships until this year,” she said, “and they were always ambiguous.”

The 18-year Democratic congresswoman says her conscience never bothered her. “I did not have an ethical alarm go off,” she said. “I’ve acknowledged I made a mistake. I should have given it more attention; I did not, and that’s why I paid every penny back.”

Johnson said she paid back the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation about $31,000 from personal funds after The Dallas Morning News reported about the scholarships she steered to family and staff.

News 8 asked her why she didn’t just give them her money instead. “They never asked me,” she said. “They saw the kids getting scholarships and they applied. There was no rule at that time for them not to get any.”

Johnson insists that she and her staff guide students to scholarship money when contacted. “And when I speak to them, I tell them, don’t let it be money that keeps you from going. We’ll find some way to assist,” she said.

But her November opponent, Republican Stephen Broden, produced a 2007 letter from a Dallas man asking for Johnson’s help finding financial aid for a student who lived in her district. Johnson wrote back for the girl to see her school financial advisor without mentioning the foundation scholarships — or any others, for that matter.

“I think that some people were hurt in this,” Broden said. “First of all, the students who qualified for it who were in the district were hurt because they did not receive these funds.”

Johnson said it is possible that that that was her reply. “It might be,” she said. “I’m not even sure I’ve ever seen the letter.”

Broden still has a steep uphill climb to unseat Johnson, who is in a very Democratic district. She beat her 2008 Republican opponentin 2008 with 82 percent of the vote.

More on the troubles of Eddie Bernice Johnson:

Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson violated rules, steered scholarships to relatives

10:28 AM CDT on Monday, August 30, 2010

By TODD J. GILLMAN and CHRISTY HOPPE / The Dallas Morning News

Longtime Dallas congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson has awarded thousands of dollars in college scholarships to four relatives and a top aide’s two children since 2005, using foundation funds set aside for black lawmakers’ causes.

The recipients were ineligible under anti-nepotism rules of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, which provided the money. And all of the awards violated a foundation requirement that scholarship winners live or study in a caucus member’s district.

Johnson, a Democrat, denied any favoritism when asked about the scholarships last week. Two days later, she acknowledged in a statement released by her office that she had violated the rules but said she had done so “unknowingly” and would work with the foundation to “rectify the financial situation.”

Initially, she said, “I recognized the names when I saw them. And I knew that they had a need just like any other kid that would apply for one.” Had there been more “very worthy applicants in my district,” she added, “then I probably wouldn’t have given it” to the relatives.

Her handling of the scholarships puts a rare spotlight on the program and how it is overseen. Caucus members have great leeway in how they pick winners and how aggressively they publicize the awards. Some lawmakers promote the program online, for instance, while Johnson does not.

Philanthropy experts said such lax oversight of scholarship money doesn’t match the standards for charities.

The foundation – which is supported by private and corporate donations, not taxpayer money – provides $10,000 annually for each member of the Congressional Black Caucus to award in scholarships. Each gets to decide how many ways to split the money and whether to create a judging panel, choose personally or delegate the task.
Johnson, a former chairwoman of the caucus who has served on the board that oversees the foundation, said she wasn’t fully aware of the program rules and emphasized that she didn’t “personally benefit.”

In her interview with The Dallas Morning News, on Wednesday, Johnson said “hundreds of kids got scholarships since I have been here.” Her district covers much of southern Dallas County, including many of the area’s less affluent precincts.

“The most that any kid normally gets is from $1,000 to $1,200. … If it was a secret or if I was trying to hide it, I wouldn’t have done it,” she said.
The foundation’s general counsel, Amy Goldson, said Saturday that the scholarships Johnson awarded violated eligibility rules regarding relatives and residency and are “of great concern.”

The program “operates on an honor system,” so the foundation hadn’t known that money went to Johnson’s relatives, she said. But when a recipient fails to meet eligibility requirements or “misrepresents their eligibility, the scholarship funds must be returned.”

Further, Goldson said, the failure of a lawmaker or aides to follow eligibility rules “is a violation of the letter and spirit of [the Foundation’s] requirements.”

“It is inappropriate for a lawmaker to certify the award of a scholarship to a relative in a situation where the lawmaker or their staff is involved in the selection of the recipient,” she said.

Apart from the residency requirements, the scholarship rules state that students must have a 2.5-grade-point average, but there are no explicit judging criteria.
Johnson awarded nine to 11 scholarships a year from 2005 to 2008, the most recent years for which information was available. Each of those years, three or four winners were related to her or her district director, Rod Givens. Johnson said she divided the available funds equally among recipients, and every qualified applicant got a scholarship.

The foundation asks applicants to certify that they aren’t related to those associated with the caucus or the foundation, but it does not specify which relationships that includes.

Scholarships have gone to two of the congresswoman’s grandsons, Kirk and David Johnson; to two of her great-nephews, Gregory and Preston Moore; and to Givens’ son and daughter. Givens did not respond to requests for comment, and none of the scholarship recipients could be reached.

‘Not … proper’

Daniel Borochoff, president of the American Institute of Philanthropy, said that, ideally, scholarship and grant decisions should be made by disinterested arbiters, preferably on the basis of excellence or need.

Johnson’s system “is not an appropriate or proper way to distribute scholarship funds,” he said.

“It’s totally fine if the congressman or -woman wants to reach inside their own pocket and give, but to use money that people got tax deductions on to then benefit their family – it would just be setting up nonprofit organizations to get tax benefits to put their kids through college. It would wreck the whole system if that kind of thing were allowed,” Borochoff said.

He said a scholarship with so few criteria for recipients would normally attract dozens if not hundreds of applicants if it were well publicized.

“There should be outrage because there are probably students who are more deserving and more needy of the funds,” Borochoff said.

The combined scholarship total for the six students over four years was less than $20,000, based on Johnson’s accounting of the scholarships. That appears to be less than half the total Johnson awarded over that time. Of 43 scholarships her office awarded between 2005 and 2008, 15 went to relatives of Johnson or Givens, according to foundation annual reports.

Johnson, in the interview Wednesday, dismissed concerns about the propriety of giving to her relatives or her staffers.

“We look at the kids that apply, look at their qualifications, and if they have the application there with all the ingredients, we try to help,” she said. “I doubt if there is anybody in my district going to question me giving $1,000 to a kid to help him with college.”

The congresswoman, 74, who is expected to handily win a 10th term this fall over a relatively unknown Republican, said flatly that there was no favoritism for her aide’s children or for her grandsons or great-nephews.

“Same application. Same requirements,” she said.

Rules clear, lawyer says

The Congressional Black Caucus consists of one U.S. senator and 41 House members – among them Johnson and two other Texans, Reps. Sheila Jackson Lee and Al Green, both of Houston. All are Democrats.

The foundation is a separate, nonprofit charitable organization whose board at any time includes only a few caucus members.

The foundation, which awarded $716,000 to 556 students last year, has been criticized for spending less on scholarships than on galas and conferences that allow lobbyists to rub elbows with influential lawmakers. Fundraising for the caucus itself and its members is tightly regulated, but the closely related foundation faces few restrictions.

In 2002, Johnson chaired the caucus and served on its board.

She continued to serve on the foundation board through 2005 – a year when both great-nephews and grandson Kirk Johnson received scholarships through her office, despite a rule explicitly forbidding awards to relatives of foundation board members.

Goldson, the foundation attorney, said the rules make clear that applicants cannot be related to any member of the black caucus, the foundation’s staff, directors, members of its corporate advisory council or any sponsor, a list that includes scores of major companies. “Any misrepresentation will result in disqualification of the application,” she said.

Each caucus member who participates in the foundation’s scholarship program is responsible for publicizing the competition locally. Some do so more aggressively than others. Many list the opportunity on their official U.S. House websites, often under a tab dedicated to “students.”

Johnson’s website makes no mention of the scholarships.

“This has been going on long before there was any websites,” she said. “We send information to the high schools. I haven’t known anybody who didn’t know about it, to tell you the truth.”

Counselors at four southern Dallas high schools didn’t return calls last week to discuss the matter.

Selection process varies

The foundation raises the funds, sets requirements and provides application forms. But the process for picking winners varies among lawmakers.

Apart from the GPA of at least 2.5, students must submit personal and financial information, a transcript, letters of recommendation, an essay on goals, and a copy of their federal student aid report to their local member of the Congressional Black Caucus.

Johnson said aides in Dallas – where Givens is her senior aide – review applications and forward to her all those that qualify.

“When they come to this office, there’s hardly much decision to be made. We find out how many applicants, how much money, divide it up, send it in,” she said. “I’ve not given any money where there was no need. And I don’t think a $1,000 scholarship’s going to do too much, but it helps when you need it.”

Johnson’s assets – not counting a blind trust that owns a newsstand concession at Dallas Love Field – amounted to less than $97,000 in 2008. Her wealth puts her in the bottom quarter of House members, according to Center for Responsive Politics data. Apart from her $174,000-a-year congressional salary, she reported a $35,000 pension for her previous service in the state Legislature, and $22,000 from Social Security last year.

In doling out their scholarship money, some lawmakers pick one winner, others as many as 18.

Johnson gave out nine scholarships in 2005, 11 in 2006 and 10 in 2007. Every qualified applicant got a piece of the pie, she said, though her office did not provide details on the number of applications submitted each year.

Johnson said she never asked the foundation or anyone else if it was acceptable for her to award scholarships to relatives.

“It’s never come up with me,” she said. “But let me just say this: None of these people are my immediate family. Immediate family doesn’t include grandchildren.”
‘As best I could’

But the Johnsons, Moores and Givenses weren’t eligible under other foundation rules requiring recipients to reside or go to school in a congressional district represented by a member of the Congressional Black Caucus.

None of the six lived or attended school in Johnson’s district. They lived in districts represented by white Republicans.

Eddie Bernice Johnson (TX-30) Grilled by Anders…, posted with vodpod

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Texas GOP Vote Blog Reports:

On Wednesday August 25th, both Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson (TX-30) and her Republican opponent Pastor Stephen Broden were invited to speak to the Hispanic Community on the issues that affect District 30 and debate on the Contacto Inmigrante Show. While Democrat Eddie Bernice Johnson declined the offer, candidate Pastor Stephen Broden accepted the invitation and received a great response from the Hispanic Community. The host of the show, Mr. Jose Luis Flores, stated that he called US Representative Johnson’s office several times over several weeks with no response until the last day when he was told “the Congresswoman was not interested” in coming to the show to speak about the issues with the Hispanic Community. On the contrary, Pastor Stephen Broden responded immediately to the opportunity.

During the show the host asked several questions to Pastor Broden and also several phone calls from the viewers were answered in the studio. Mr. Flores began by telling the community that President Obama does not keep promises and that Hispanics do take that in account because Hispanics “do keep their promises”. He said that legislators have to be held accountable for what they say during their campaigns, and he was aware of problems in District 30. He explained to the audience that his intention was to bring both points of view to the Spanish speaking community for those living in District 30 who are not familiar with their congresswoman and the candidate running against her. He was disappointed Representative Eddie Bernice Johnson “was not interested”.

The viewers were able to get to know Pastor Broden, his background, the reasons he is running for congress, and his answers to the variety of questions regarding the issues.

Questions given to Pastor Broden during the one hour show were regarding: His position on the life of the unborn and traditional marriage. A Hispanic caller said, with disappointment, that Eddie Bernice Johnson has supported abortion in all votes involving the life of the unborn and that she supports abortion at every stage of the pregnancy of a woman. Pastor Broden said he differed from the congresswoman on that issue as he believes life begins at conception. He also answered that the institution of marriage in all societies is between a man and a woman so they may be able to procreate.

He spoke about the issue of education and the high rate of drop out from high school students from the African American and the Hispanic community in District 30 and that we must provide the best incentives that can provide our children with the best possible education to take advantage of those jobs that will be created by business moving into the district. He also answered questions regarding the economy, the heavy regulation from the federal government in small businesses, the need for the free market to provide health care, the removal of the federal government intrusion on small business, the need to create new jobs, why people have being doing business outside of the country, immigration, the 14th amendment, Arizona SB 1070, the importance of the rule of law, the document of the Constitution, the unfairness in judging all Republicans because of a few who speak with hateful rhetoric against Hispanics, the fact that government is intruding our lives, etc.

On the issue of immigration, Pastor Broden stressed the need to secure our borders first, that it is our responsibility as a nation to secure our borders, and the need to fix the broken immigration system. He acknowledges that the current system is broken and we need to think through how we can deal with this very complicated issue. The solution will not be easy, but both Democrats and Republicans need to sit and talk to find a solution. He said that his intent is to show the kind of courage that is needed to resolve this very serious problem, and that there is a need for us as a nation to honor and respect our laws. Pastor Broden was also asked about his thoughts about the Dream Act, he responded that at this time he will study the Dream Act to see what will be a fair and equitable solution to a very complicated issue.

Pastor Broden also said that he makes a distinction between immigration and illegal immigration, explaining that illegal immigration is a larger definition than just Hispanics, we have other groups, including terrorists coming in, etc. and many of them want to hurt our nation and we have to stop that. He said that the Republican Party is about limited government and that the essence of Liberty is the proper limitation of the government. Pastor Broden explained Eddie Bernice Johnson has given 18 years of service to TX-30 as Congresswoman, which gives us a lot of time to get a clear record of what she has been able to accomplish. District 30 is behind on economical development, is in need of jobs, and the education is suffering. The Hispanic community called and responded positively letting Candidate Stephen Broden know that they were grateful to hear a Republican who cares for their values and for his District.

Stephen Broden ended with the following message:

To the Hispanic Community, It is important for you to begin to investigate what has happened in the last 18 years in the 30th District of Dallas. There has been a loss of jobs. There has been a reduction of business development. Crime is on the rise in our community. There is a breakdown between our leadership and the needs of our community. It is time for a change. That change can happen when we vote our values. I represent your values. I am a conservative republican. I believe in the sanctity of life. I believe in the traditional family. I believe in freedom and liberty. Its time for a change, I need your vote.

CHICAGO – A woman and three children were killed and two others injured Wednesday morning after a man went on a deadly rampage on the city’s south side.

The suspect is now in custody.

The shooting happened sometime after 4 a.m. at 7248 S. Mozart Street in the Marquette Park neighborhood.

The Chicago Breaking News center reports authorities said a 12-year-old girl who was shot at by the suspect as she fled the home alerted police.

The children killed were identified as Jihad, the 7-month-old son of the alleged gunman, his 3-year-old niece, Keleasha Larry, and his 16-year-old niece, Keyshai Fields, who a friend said was four months pregnant.

A 19-year-old woman identified by family members as the alleged gunman’s wife, Twanda Thompson, who he married just weeks ago and who was expecting their second child, was the fourth victim.

The two wounded were identified by family members as the alleged gunman’s mother, Leona Larry, and his 13-year-old nephew, Demond Larry. They both suffered gunshots to the head and were taken in critical condition to Advocate Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, a fire department spokesman said.

“This is a crime scene, a horrendous scene,” Eighth District Commander John Kupczyk said this morning. “Something like this is pretty incomprehensible.”

Kupczyk said police did not establish a motive for the shootings.

Police have not released what kind of weapon the suspect may have used in the shooting.

The suspect is believed to reside somewhere in the Madison, Wisconsin area.

Four organizations are planning a fundraiser for the victims’ families from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at 205 W. 109th St., the headquarters of one of the groups.

Interesting – no mention in the above news story about his “Voices from Allah”

Frantic call after 4 found dead: ‘He killed everyone’
April 14, 2010 2:17 PM | 63 Comments | UPDATED STORY

Friends and neighbors react to news that four people were shot to death and two more wounded early Wednesday at a Marquette neighborhood residence. (Alex Garcia/Chicago Tribune)

A woman and three children were found shot to death this morning in the bedrooms of a Marquette Park bungalow, part of a crime scene police described as “incomprehensible.” Two other people were critically wounded and a suspect – a relative of the victims – was in custody.

A 12-year-old girl who was shot at by the suspect as she fled the home alerted police at a nearby gas station, authorities said.

The children were Jihan, the 7-month-old son of the gunman, his 3-year-old niece, Keleasha Larry, and his 16-year-old niece, Keyshai Fields, who a friend said was four months pregnant. Keyshai and Keleasha were found shot to death in the same bed.

The fourth victim was a 30-year-old woman identified by family members as the gunman’s wife, Twanda Thompson, who he married just weeks ago and who was expecting their second child. She and Jihan were found in bed in a separate bedroom with gunshot wounds to their heads, police said.

The two wounded were identified by family members as the gunman’s mother, Leona Larry, and his 13-year-old nephew, Demond Larry. They both suffered gunshots to the head and were taken in critical condition to Advocate Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, a fire department spokesman said.

The suspect was arrested several miles away about an hour and a half after the shootings.

A law enforcement source, citing preliminary information, said the man told police he had been hearing voices that told him to bring his family to Allah. He also told police he didn’t have enough ammunition, the source said.

The suspect had been arrested in Madison last fall for allegedly beating Thompson, according to records. Just last week, Thompson filed a paternity case against the suspect, records show. The child is referred to in the case as Jihad, but family members called him Jihan.

And in recent days, Thompson said the suspect had been fighting because he wanted her to dress in Muslim garb, but she refused, according to Shirina Thompson, the older sister of Twanda Thompson.

The suspect had also been acting strangely, talking about “going to Allah,” she said.

Twanda had been with the suspect two years, but they had been married for the last two to three weeks, said her sister Shirina Thompson. Tawanda was pregnant with a girl she was going to name Khadijah, she said.

Thompson and her mother Veronica were told by police that the suspect opened fire unprovoked, first shooting his wife in the neck and wounding the others in the head. When he saw that his wife was still alive, he shot her in the head, Thompson said.

Police were alerted around 4:25 a.m. today after a 12-year-old girl ran out of the brick house in the 7200 block of South Mozart Drive and down the street, sources said.

The gunman chased her and fired a shot but missed, a source said. The girl made it to a gas station and was asking someone to call police when a squad car approached and the girl told officers about the shooting, the source said.

Gas station attendents at the Citgo on 71st and California said a young girl burst through the door in her pajamas a little after 4 a.m. They said she was crying and asked one of the attendants to call her mom and the police.

Police put out an alert for a 32-year-old relative from Madison, Wis., who they said had a beard and goatee and was wearing dark clothing.

In the meantime, the suspect left the house and crossed Marquette Park to avoid busy streets, ditching a 9mm handgun along the way, a law enforcement source said. A squad car spotted him about 5:49 a.m. at 59th Street and Racine Avenue and he was arrested without incident.

A handgun was recovered, but Chicago Lawn District Cmdr. John Kupczyk said police were still trying to determine whether it was used in the murders.

“This is a really bad crime scene,” Kupczyk said. “Something like this is pretty incomprehensible.”

The suspect’s sister — who is the mother of two of the dead children — said she was not at the house at the time but got a call from her 12-year-old daughter who had escaped.

“She called me screaming,” Keisha Larry said. “She said, ‘He killed everyone.’ She told me my brother chased her down the street.”

Larry said her mother, Leona Larry, is on a ventilator at the hospital and her son, Demond, was undergoing surgery for a gunshot wound to the face.

The suspect, her brother, has an arrest record dating back to 1995 for battery, drug possession, resisting arrest and escape. He was sentenced in January of this year for a misdemeanor battery conviction, according to records. His most recent address is a halfway house for parolees in Janesville, Wis., though most of his arrests were in the Madison, Wis. area.

Ella Smith, a relative of the family, said her sister-in-law called her this morning screaming and crying.

“She said her brother killed her kids,” said Smith. “She said her daughter managed to escape and he chased her down the street shooting.”

Smith said her sister-in-law was not at home during the shooting.

The shootings left the neighborhood in shock.

Friends of the 16-year-old who died gathered outside her home this morning, recalling how cheerful she had been in school Monday.

“She was just prancing down the hallway in her sun glasses,” said Shakeltha Myers,17. “She was happy.”

Ebony Ousley, 18, said the girl had been comforting her because Ousley’s family had just been involved in a shooting.

“She was saying she hoped they felt better,” said Ousley, wiping away tears. “It’s just crazy. I never expected to wake up the next day and hear that she was gone.”

Willie Smith, 15, who lives around the corner, ran over as soon as he heard his friends had been involved in a shooting. He was supposed to give them a pit bull puppy today that his mother wouldn’t let him keep.

“I can’t do nothing but cry,” he said through tears. “I wonder what could come over someone to kill kids, to shoot babies.”

Shakeitha Myers, 17, said the 16-year-old girl who was killed was a junior and fellow classmate at Paul Robeson High School. She said her friend was four months pregnant.

“Why would anyone do this to them?” she sobbed. “It’ll never be the same.”
