    Raleigh, N.C., citizens are on alert after two cases of black mob violence in two nights in their downtown. The attacks are the latest in a series of episodes of racial violence in the area. The local ABC affiliate was the only media outlet to report that last Tuesday, a group of at least 15 black people stalked and beat a homeless woman after she saw them coming and tried to get out of their way. In contrast to most cases of black racial violence, local journalist Kelli O’Hara actually identified the mob the way victims and the police did:...

    The 20-year-old was abducted off-campus at 10 p.m. and pulled inside a black van. One of the suspect has a distinctive ‘MM’ tattoo on his face. A La Salle University student told police she was grabbed a mile away from campus by four men in a van and raped, then dropped off in another part of town. Police have launched a major hunt for four men accused of kidnapping and gang-raping a Philadelphia college student on Easter Sunday. The 20-year-old was walking a mile from the La Salle University's campus at 10 p.m. when the group pulled up in a...
  • U.S. has lower life expectancy than any other wealthy nation because high murder rate

    The Daily Mail ^ | 9 January 2013
    The United States has far more violent deaths than any other wealthy nation in part because there are so many residents who own guns and store them in unlocked places in their homes. The lax gun rules are a major contributor to the low life expectancy rate that Americans have compared to their global counterparts. That claim comes just weeks after the horrific shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School and as politicians make calls for stricter gun controls. The United States has about six violent deaths per 100,000 residents and none of the 16 other countries included in the review...

    An article published in the Wall Street Journal on Saturday reported that while the number of homicides has decreased over the last decade (2001-2011) due to improvements in medical technology, the number of people treated for gunshot wounds increased by almost half. Here is an excerpt from the WSJ article: After a steady decline through the 1990s, the annual number of homicides zigzagged before resuming a decline in 2007, falling from 16,929 that year to an estimated 14,722 in 2010, according to FBI crime data. At the same time, medical data and other surveys in the U.S. show a rising...

    Director Spike Lee, along with his wife Tonya, came on Wednesday's Today show to promote their new children's book, but he couldn't leave without blaming the NRA for the Gabrielle Giffords shooting and slamming the United States of America for being "the most violent country in the history of civilization." Initially both Lees just talked about their new book, Giant Steps to Change the World, but Today co-anchor Meredith Vieira couldn't let the controversial director of such films like Do The Right Thing and Malcolm X go, without pressing him to comment on the Tucson massacre as seen in the following...

    More than two dozen youths and advocates gathered in front of the criminal courts building in downtown Los Angeles to support two young males who were sentenced today to 50 years to life in prison for a fatal drive-by shooting. A jury convicted Steven Menendez, 17, and Jose Garcia, 19, of murder in July in the March 2007 death of 16-year-old Danny Saavedra. Saavedra was playing basketball in the 500 block of 82nd Street in South Los Angeles when he was shot in what police described as a gang-related attack. Afterward, officers pursued a vehicle matching the description of the...

    What began as a makeshift memorial for brutally slain honor student Derrion Albert teetered toward angry chaos Monday outside Fenger High School. About 250 neighbors, Fenger graduates and self-proclaimed community activists gathered, with many shouting at each other during the vigil called in response to the Sept. 24 mob beating that took the 16-year-old's life. One neighborhood activist calling herself "Queen Sister" chanted through a bullhorn and led a group of people to the school's front doors, demanding to be let in. At one point, the group -- apparently angry at a local politician for not doing enough to prevent...

    Two men with possible gang affiliations have been charged with capital murder and two other suspects are expected to be charged in the beating death of a Loudoun County man during a morning stroll with his wife last month, authorities said yesterday. The attack was a "random robbery gone bad," Loudoun Sheriff Stephen O. Simpson said. Police began to home in on the four suspects while executing search warrants in connection with a flurry of burglaries, robberies and assaults in Loudoun County. Some suspects appear to be either members of or associated with a regional street gang, but it does...
