This information is from Wikipedia~On January 11, 2013, Kendrick Johnson's body was found in a rolled up wrestling mat in the gymnasium of Lowndes High School, Valdosta, Georgia, USA, where he was a student. A preliminary investigation and autopsy concluded that the death was accidental. Johnson's family had a private pathologist conduct another autopsy which concluded that Johnson died from blunt force trauma. On October 31, 2013, the U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia announced that the office would open a formal review into Johnson's death. Johnson's family is dissatisfied with the pace of this review, as well.
Quotes from HUEY P. NEWTON
"From all of these things-the books, Malcolm's sprit, our analysis of the local situation-the idea of an organization was forming. One day, quite suddenly, almost by chance we found a name. I had read a pamphlet about voter registration in Mississippi, how the people in Lowndes County had armed themselves against Establishment violence. Their political group, called Lowndes County Freedom Organization, had a black panther for its symbol. A few days later while Bobby and I were rapping, I suggested that we use the Panther as our symbol and call our political vehicle the BLACK PANTHER PARTY. The Panther is a fierce animal, but he will not attack until he is backed into a corner; then he will,strike out. The image seemed appropriate, and Bobby agreed without discussion. At this point, we knew it was time to stop talking and begin organizing. Although we had always wanted to get away from the intellectualize get and rhetoric characteristic of other groups, at times we were as inactive as they were. The time had come for action."
Join Michael Ornelas, Andrew Pish, and James McEnelly once a month as we watch a Lifetime Original Movie and talk about how much we FREAKING LOVED IT!
In our debut episode, we watched the Will Ferrell & Kristen Wiig-driven juggernaut "A Deadly Adoption" which just premiered on Saturday night. Inspired by a true story, A Deadly Adoption is a high-stakes dramatic thriller about a successful couple (Ferrell and Wiig) who house and care for a pregnant woman (Jessica Lowndes) during the final months of her pregnancy with the hopes of adopting her unborn child.
This may possibly the best use of 90 minutes one can spend.

The Valdosta Daily Times has received an exclusive short video and lengthy manifesto from wanted student-protester Eric Sheppard.
The video, that simply authenticates the message from Sheppard, is posted here.
The manifesto from Sheppard, posted here, contains speech and language that might be considered offensive.
The message from Sheppard contains specific references to this weekend’s graduation ceremonies at Lowndes High School.
Police Chief Brian Childress has said while Sheppard’s rhetoric contains threats, but he and his department do not consider the threats to be credible.
Officials have suggested the message amounts to a publicity stunt by Sheppard.
Sheppard has been on the run since a warrant was issued for his arrest in connection with bringing a gun onto campus following a protest at Valdosta State University.
While The Valdosta Daily Times understands concerns over the release of the video and message, The Times chose to release what it received from Sheppard in order to provide the most complete information to the general public possible. The Times had been told if the newspaper did not release Sheppard’s statement it would be released through other means. The Valdosta Daily Times decided to release the information with complete details about how it was obtained, along with how it was being viewed by local law enforcement.
His Ancestors Were Slave Traders and Hers Were Slaves. What They Learned About Healing from a Roadtrip
We embarked upon a journey to test whether two people ?could come to grips with deep, traumatic, historic wounds and find healing. We had no idea where we would end up.
I burst into tears in the parking lot of the Lowndes County Interpretive Center in rural Alabama. Tom and I were five days into the 6,000-plus mile ?healing journey? that informed "Gather at the Table", the book we wrote about healing the many wounds Americans inherited from the legacy of slavery. We had just crossed the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma where, in March 1965, John Lewis (now a 15-term U.S. congressman) and more than 600 protesters tried to begin a 54-mile march to Montgomery. On a day that came to be known as ?Bloody Sunday,? Alabama state troopers confronted the peaceful marchers and viciously attacked them with billy clubs. I watched these events unfold on television as a 14-year-old child embraced in the warm comfort of my family home in Chicag
I didn?'t know what to say. So I said nothing. I sat in the passenger seat next to Sharon while she sobbed. Twenty minutes earlier, on the drive from the Voting Rights Museum, I had asked her, ?What would you do if you had lived here then??
?I would kill them,? she said, staring straight ahead as she drove, clutching the steering wheel in a death grip. I watched the first tear roll down her cheek.

This heartbreaking story will leave you in tears so be sure to have your tissues ready then be prepared to take action. River escaped the Hell in which he was living and found his way into the home and hearts of a pair of loving souls. He was given love, proper food, a soft warm bed, and proper veterinary care only to be ripped away and handed back to the horrible conditions he so despirately tried escaping. I read the petition, cried, got angry, signed the petition (www.change.org/p/sam-olens-brian-childress-rescue-river-from-his-abusers), shared it, 'liked' the facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Justice4River), then created this show to tell you about this precious soul who needs our help. Please don't turn your back on River. Listen to his story, get angry, sign the petition, like his page, and share this show. Let's get the entire world involved in this case and let's save the life of this dog and his cell mate. I know he can count on us!
