Death Sentence is a 2008 Kevin Bacon film that deals with the ritualistic murder of his son by a multi-racial gang preparing to initiate a new recruit. This type of event happens all the time in real-life, but these gangs have much less passion and enthusiasm for diversity as movies and television hint.
Why in Chicago today, 9 random people were shot at a bus stop:
Nine people were shot at a bus station in the south side of Chicago Monday, police said.
All but one of them suffered non-life threatening injuries. The ninth person was seriously hurt, police said.
The shooting took place in the 7900 block of South Western Avenue and appears to be gang-related, officials said.
Police were interviewing witnesses and put out a call for any videos that may have captured the shooting.
A death sentence is ostensibly what recent college graduate Kyser Miree had when he moved to Mobile, Alabama to take an engineering position:
Four suspects charged with capital murder in the death of Christopher Kyser Miree are scheduled to be in court today for bail hearings.
Jamal Breon Lang, 20; Michael Jerome Lee, 19; Bo Taylor, 18; and Earnest Teryl Wiggins, 19 will appear before Mobile County District Judge George Hardesty.
Miree, 23, was found shot in the head April 16 at 4 Macy Place, the residence he shared with a co-worker.
"We are going to request the court give them no bonds in light of the seriousness of the charge and the crime," Mobile County District Attorney John Tyson Jr. said Monday. Since juvenile records are sealed, Tyson said he could not discuss whether any of the suspects had been convicted of prior offenses in juvenile court.
The four were "riding around looking for people to rob" that night, Mobile Police Chief Micheal T. Williams said at a news conference Monday. "And Kyser Miree was one of the victims of their revelry."
Lang and Lee were arrested by police early Sunday, while Taylor turned himself in Sunday night. Wiggins surrendered to police Monday morning.
All four suspects remained in Mobile County Metro Jail. A capital murder charge carries a possible death sentence.
A graduate of Vanderbilt University, Miree was an engineer who worked for the Chevron Corp. refinery in Pascagoula.
Williams refused to say what type of weapon was used in the killing, what was taken from Miree or his home or whether his killing could be related the death of Zoa White.
The body of the 69-year-old White was found June 28 inside her Spring Hill Avenue home. White died of "blunt force trauma to the head," according to police.
Her house was about a mile from the Macy Place home where Miree was killed. No one has been charged in that case.
Tyson said he does not believe the death of White and Miree are connected.
Williams said police are still working to evaluate whether anyone will get the reward that was offered in the Miree case. Authorities received an anonymous tip that led to the arrests, Tyson said Sunday.
The victim's family offered $50,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for his death. Tyson said he talked with Williams on Monday about the reward money.
"We'll have to look at those terms and evaluate whether one or more persons are entitled to it," Tyson said.
The Miree case "caused a lot of problems with people being uneasy in their homes," the chief said Monday.
Williams praised his police officers for diligently pursuing the case and doing "a lot of good police work."
The chief added: "These guys were out there every day, running down tips."
Ask yourself why true vigilante movies can’t be made in Hollywood, and the name Kyser Miree supplies ample evidence as to why these films are incapable of being produced. Perhaps the Black residents of Mobile got tired of looking for the elusive Leprechaun and decided to go looking for money from the next best source instead of an imaginary one.
For every James Byrd story - which serves as the ultimate fodder to foster white guilt among those who hear about or read this woeful tale - hundreds of stories such as Miree's murder go unreported on the national scale, never having the opportunity to create the same Black guilt amongst those who had nothing to do with the heinous murders.
Only white people must embrace the burden of one crime by a member of their race, a stigma that the entire racial group must carry as evidence of their alleged and continual racism.
In 2010, to continually incubate and instill white guilt, the media hypes stories of decades old murderers finally coming to justice. No, the killers of today no longer wear hoods but in fact come from the hood.
