BALTIMORE COP CAUGHT SLAPPING/KICKING STUDENT

If this were my child in this video, I would be in some very serious trouble.  In life we are taught to be law-abiding and for the most part, I think most people are.  But… after seeing this disturbing video, God himself would have to grab and restrain me from reaching out to touch this particular officer in some manner.

Okay, before I get too far ahead of myself, let me give you more information.  At Reach Partnership School, a middle school in Baltimore, Maryland, a police officer was caught on camera slapping and kicking a student.  At this time, the head of the Baltimore school police force and the two officers seen in this video are on administrative leave.  This action was taken after the video became public.  No word yet as to what happened prior to the physical altercation but I can assure you that attorneys are lined up to try to represent this young man.  The teen and his parents are being represented at this time by attorney Lauren Geisser.  Reports indicate that Geisser said she has documentation identifying the teen as a tenth grader at the school.  Further reports indicate that the student suffered face and rib injuries as a result of this assault by the very unprofessional cop.  Geisser has been quoted as saying “the boy had a right to be at the school where he was an enrolled student.  With respect to refusing to leave the school, the student didn’t want to leave the school where he had a right to attend.”

“I am completely appalled and disappointed by what is depicted in the video,” the school system’s CEO, Gregory Thornton, said in the statement. “Our school police officers are entrusted with ensuring the safety of our students and staff, and I know that most of them take this job seriously while maintaining a high level of professionalism. The behavior in the video is completely unacceptable.”

You’ve got to share your thoughts on this one.  Tell me what you think.

Suspects pictured above from left to right Christian Colon 19, Jonathan Lucas 18, Kaheem Arbelo 20, Desiray Strickland 18.  Arbelo and Strickland are said to have stayed behind at the scene to have sex.

 

I got the following article from Daily Mail.com website and this crime is simply atrocious.  There is not a punishment good enough for these monsters who took the life of this young man.  The fact that they lured him into the woods and began to cut him up was bad enough but they then…. buried him alive.  I have no more words…  Check out the article below:

Four Miami, Florida students allegedly hacked a 17-year-old boy to near death with a Machete then buried him alive before two of the teens had sex near the grisly scene.

Desiray Strickland, 18, was arrested on Wednesday making her the fourth suspect charged in the killing of Jose Amaya Guardado, 17, on June 28.

Kaheem Arbelo, 20, Jonathan Lucas, 18, and Christian Colon, 19, confessed to the murder last week following their arrest, said Miami-Dade police. 

Arbelo is a suspected drug dealer at the school. Police expect to arrest a fifth in conjunction with the killing.

Jose Amaya Guardado 17, killed

The Miami Herald likened the arrest report to a scene from the novel Lord of the Flies in which a group of teenagers hunt each other like animals.

The report states that at one point Strickland became angry at the other suspects when they started allegedly hacking the boy to death without her.

She, ‘complained that she had missed the first series of machete strikes because she had walked away for a few minutes to urinate in the woods,’ according to the arrest report.

‘The victim made one last attempt to fight off the attackers,’ a detective wrote, ‘at which time, (Arbelo) struck the victim with the machete several more times until the victim’s face caved in.’

Police say that after the students buried Guardado that Strickland stayed behind with the supposed ringleader of the group Kaheem Arbelo to have sex near the murder scene before going back to the Homestead Job Corps school campus.

Authorities say the students are a part of a known group of bullies at the live-in school and vocational training program run by the U.S. Department of Labor.

Arbelo is an alleged school drug dealer and attack is thought to have stemmed from a debt owed to Arbelo from Guardado.

The school is a program aimed at helping students get high school diplomas along with teaching them skills like masonry and office administration.

‘Safety and security is our top priority,’ said a labor department spokesman.

‘Steps already have been taken to strengthen security at the Homestead center, and Job Corps is reviewing safety and security at all its centers,’ said spokesman Stephen Barr.

Barr said he was ‘deeply saddened’ by the death and would be offering counseling for students.

Jose went missing on June 28 and was found in the woods days later by his brothers who saw two feet in a burned area, reports The New York Daily News.

‘The body was unrecognizable and decomposed,’ cousin Ana Morales wrote on a family fundraising page.

‘His brothers could not resist to see the body. They were crazy with grief hoping it was not Jose.’

Arbelo, Lucas and Colon confessed on video to the killings, but Strickland was not cooperative.

She tried to pick her handcuffs off with screw from a nearby electrical outlet and also head butted an officer.

She etched, ‘MPD Go to Hell’ on the table in the interview room, say police.

Guardado is described as being a shy and ‘peaceful young man.’

‘A crime is bad, but what Jose suffered was horrible,’ wrote his cousin Ana Morales. 

 

HARVARD, YALE, BROWN, COLUMBIA, CORNELL, DARTHMOUTH, PRINCETON,AND THE UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA

The above list is a partial list of schools that has accepted this young black teen. Yes, Kwasi Enin, has been accepted into all eight of the Ivy League Schools. This young gent has a great future ahead of himself. I hope he keeps his head on straight and continues to pursue his dreams. He’s all IVY. Check out his story below:

ABC NEWS REPORTS:
High school seniors anxiously checking the mail or logging online to see if they were accepted to their dream college can look with hope, or envy, to Kwasi Enin.
The 17-year-old, from Long Island, N.Y., was accepted to not one, not two, but all eight of the most prestigious universities in the U.S., otherwise known as the Ivy League.
Enin, a senior at William Floyd High School, scored a 2,250 out of 2,400 on the SAT, placing him in the 99 th percentile for all students taking the exam. He also ranks in the top 2 percent of his class, yet he says he never thought he would get into Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton, the University of Pennsylvania and Yale.
“I thought I would get one or two,” Enin told Newsday. “I simply thought I would apply. I knew it was crazy.”
Enin, who is also a violinist, was accepted to Princeton in December and then heard from the remaining seven schools on March 27. He got his final acceptance email, from Harvard, at 5:30 p.m. that day, according to Newsday.
That email from Harvard put Enin among the only 5.9 percent of applicants, out of a pool of over 35,000, who are accepted to the university.
Enin says he wants to follow in the steps of his parents, both immigrants from Ghana, and study medicine.
Exactly where Enin – who was also accepted to Duke University, Stony Brook University, SUNY Geneseo and Binghamton University – will study medicine is still to be decided, but he does have a favorite.
“I think my preference is Yale,” Enin said of the New Haven, Conn., school. “I still have to compare all these wonderful schools.”

’12 YEARS A SLAVE’ BOOK, FILM TO BE TAUGHT IN SCHOOLS

I want you to check out this article. I’m in a rush this morning and I don’t have a lot of time to comment but WOW!!! I have heard a lot about this movie and I have ben planning on seeing it. It is now real high on my list.

*Author Solomon Northup’s harrowing book “12 Years A Slave,” and the Oscar-nominated film it inspired, will be added to the high school curriculum later this year, thanks in part to a campaign spearheaded by Montel Williams, reports the New York Times.

The National School Boards Association announced that the work will be sent to public high schools across the United States through a partnership between the federation of schools boards, New Regency, Penguin Books, and the film’s producers. The film will be accompanied in classrooms by the original 1853 memoir that inspired the movie and a study guide.
Individual school districts will decide whether or not to incorporate it in their curricula.
TV veteran Williams is funding the distribution of the film.
“When Hollywood is at its best, the power of the movies can be harnessed into a powerful educational tool,” read a statement from Williams. “This film uniquely highlights a shameful period in American history, and in doing so will evoke in students a desire to not repeat the evils of the past while inspiring them to dream big of a better and brighter future.”
Director Steve McQueen adds, “Since first reading ‘12 Years a Slave,’ it has been my dream that this book be taught in schools.”
The news comes just two days after the film triumphed at the NAACP Image Awards and a day after it picked up the Best Motion Picture prize at the annual Satellite Awards, where McQueen was named Best Director.
“12 Years a Slave” is also nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars on Sunday. The story follows Northup, a free black man living in upstate New York as he is abducted and sold into slavery.
