Response To Antwan Pittman Being Found Guilty In The Murder Of An Edgecombe County Woman So Quickly

I am lead to believe that the defense obviously didn’t have a lot to fight with so therefore the case ended quickly. I believe that the evidence presented must have been enough that the defense could not really challenge the facts as presented nor the witnesses.

The families of the other missing/murdered women need to be patient and hope that other evidence can be linked to Antwan Pittman and that it will be strong enough to bring before the courts. It is no need to go to court with a whole lot of doubt and allow the defense to make the DA and others look like fools.

I commend the local Edgecombe, Nash and surrounding counties law enforcement whom have played a role in trying to bring some closure on the murdered and missing women saga in Edgecombe and Nash Counties.

Now the least that everyone whom are concerned about the other missing/murdered women that have not been closed can do is to pray that justice will prevail.

It’s President Obama Who Needs to ‘Stop Complaining’ and Get to Work – Source: COLORLINES

President Obama’s speech to the Congressional Black Caucus’ annual meeting this past weekend shouldn’t have even been news. As a whole, it was unremarkable. He offered up his now-standard talking points for his belated jobs bill—Republicans are hypocrites on taxes, we’ve gotta have shared sacrifice, pass this dead-on-arrival bill now, and so on. He peppered it with his usual code-switching for black audiences, prominently dropping his g’s and letting his old campaign-trail swagger shine. But all in all, it was nothing special—except for two things that tell us a great deal about this president and his relationship to our community. (Read more)

Youth league institutes TD limit to hold back 11-year-old – Source: rivalsHIGH

Usually we try to celebrate great young athletes and their prodigious potential. In Arkansas, one youth football league is instituting a dramatic rule to hold back its brightest star, all in an attempt to level the playing field for other competitors.

According to Arkansas Fox affiliate Fox 16, 11-year-old Demias Jimerson has emerged as such a dominant running back that the Wilson Intermediate Football League he plays in has reinstated a bylaw called the "Madre Hill rule," which bars him from scoring a touchdown if he has already scored three times and his team has a lead of 14 points or more.
