The White House sent three people to the funeral of St. Michael of Swisher Sweets. Isn’t that special? They’re honoring a thug. Of course this same White House didn’t send anyone to the funeral of the general who was killed in Afghanistan. A thug rates higher than a patriot. But what about Antonio?
Brandi Murry’s little boy just wanted a cupcake.
Antonio Smith, her outgoing and “never quiet” 9-year-old son, called to ask his mother for the treat Wednesday afternoon.
Murry said she was on her way home from work. And she denied her son’s request.
But Antonio got upset, Murry said. And her 12-year-old son called at 3:45 p.m. to say Antonio had fled the family’s new apartment in the 1100 block of East 73rd Street.
Twenty minutes later, Chicago police found Antonio behind a home in the 1200 block of East 71st Street. They said he had been shot multiple times.
Antonio was pronounced dead at Comer Children’s Hospital at 5:13 p.m., according to the medical examiner’s office.
“He got mad because I didn’t give him what he wanted,” Murry, 34, told the Chicago Sun-Times as she recounted the events that led to the death of the boy she called “Duke.”
How come the White House doesn’t think he’s as important as an eighteen-year-old thug? He’s black. But he was prolly shot by another black and in Chicago that’s just a statistic. If I was Antonio’s mother, I would be asking the president why a black thug was more important than my nine-year-old son. Easy. He can’t rile up a black mob with the death of your son like he can with the death of a black thug who was shot by a white police officer. Sorry Brandi, your son doesn’t rate as high as a thug. No Jesse Hymietown Jackson. No Al Tawana Brawley Crown Heights Riots Freddy’s Fashion Mart Arson Sharpton. No Eric My People Holder. Just another pointless death in Chicago.
The plaques were posted at Mt. Peak Elementary School and Longbranch Elementary School. They both read: “Dedicated in The Year Of Our Lord 1997 To The Education of God’s Children And To Their Faithful Teachers In The Name Of The Holy Christian Church – Soli Deo Gloria.”
Lois Lerner’s Blackberry was intentionally destroyed after Congress had begun its probe into IRS targeting of conservative groups, a senior IRS lawyer acknowledged in a sworn declaration.
Thomas Kane, Deputy Assistant Chief Counsel for the IRS, wrote in the declaration, part of a lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch against the IRS, that the Blackberry was “removed or wiped clean of any sensitive or proprietary information and removed as scrap for disposal in June 2012.”
That date – June 2012 – is significant because by that time, ex-IRS official Lerner had already been summoned before congressional staffers who interviewed her about reports of the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups.
“We had already talked to her. Our personal staff and Oversight Committee staff had sat down with Ms. Lerner and confronted her about information we were getting from conservative groups in the state of Ohio and around the country,” Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, told Fox News.
“If you intentionally destroy evidence, that is a crime. If you make a statement in court saying the evidence is not available and it is, that is also a crime,” said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice.

Professor Charles Ogletree, a legal scholar who taught President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama during their time in Cambridge, described the Mike Brown shooting as being, “Just like the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.”
“Just like the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr… This reminds us of exactly what happened years ago when I was a young kid to the great man Emmett Till, the young kid who was killed in Mississippi for allegedly whistling at a white woman. This is even worse because Michael Brown did not break in any law at all, in terms of the police officer.”
Ogletree made the outrageous comments today on MSNBC.
Via Conservative Treehouse:
Michael Brown and his companion, Dorian Johnson, were walking down the middle of the street in the middle of the day. Officer Darren Wilson stopped his squad car and asked them to move to the sidewalk.
All sides in the tragedy in Ferguson, Missouri agree on that point. What happened after that is not yet clear.
Michael Brown was shot dead by Officer Wilson. Dorian Johnson is a witness to the event. Marching and looting has occupied the last two weeks.
For all of the coverage of this tragic event, I have more questions than answers. My first question is why were they walking down the middle of the street in the middle of the day? People just do not do that unless they are looking for trouble.

When the police officer stopped on the scene he knew he had a problem. He asked them to move to the sidewalk and then all hell broke loose.
