Man who allegedly fatally shot 10-year-old New York boy is charged with murder
QUEENS COUNTY, NY – Jovan Young, 29, who authorities say fatally shot 10-year-old Justin Wallace, has been charged with murder, according to a news release from the Queens District Attorney’s Office.
Young was arraigned on Wednesday before Queens Criminal Court Judge Toko Serita, according to the news release. He was charged with murder in the second degree, attempted murder in the second degree, assault in the first degree and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree.
“There isn’t a parent alive who doesn’t mourn this family’s loss, another tragic result from gun violence,” said District Attorney Melinda Katz in the statement. “The defendant allegedly fired repeatedly into an occupied house, is now in custody and faces justice in our Courts.”
Young’s next court date is set for June 14, and if he’s convicted, he faces up to 25 years to life in prison, according to the release.
According to the charges, video surveillance from the evening of Saturday, June 5 allegedly shows Young approach the home Wallace was in and fire multiple shots into the residence, Katz said. Wallace’s 29-year-old uncle was also hit twice, once in the neck and hand, according to the release.
Young also suffered a gunshot wound to his shoulder and was brought to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in stable condition, the NYPD said.
Beth Unger from the LAS confirmed she represents Young but had no comment.
Police searching for Polk woman
accused of hit and run, Child Abuse
POLK COUNTY, FL – Police are searching for a Haines City woman accused of driving head-on into a vehicle, causing an unrestrained child to be injured on Monday morning.
Taquire Studimire, 34, faces charges of child abuse, tampering, reckless driving, hit and run and resisting arrest without violence, police say.
Authorities say she drove her 2008 Honda Civic into the front of a garbage truck in the area of North 14th Street and Stuart Avenue before 8:30 a.m. on Monday. The driver of the truck told police that he honked his horn to try to avoid being hit, but was unsuccessful. Studimire then exited the vehicle with a young child in her hand and told the driver that he was at fault for the crash.
Video recordings from the truck’s dash camera showed the child sitting unrestrained in the front and being thrown into the dash as the vehicles collided. Studimire is then seen grabbing the child from the floorboard and immediately exiting the vehicle to confront the truck driver.
Police say at no point was she ever seen taking time to examine the child for potential injury. After confronting the truck’s driver, she reentered the vehicle and backed into traffic with the driver’s side door open, almost hitting another vehicle.
The child was later located at a daycare facility after suffering a head bruise and a swollen cheek. The child was taken to a hospital but did not suffer any serious injuries.
“The blatant disregard shown for this child is appalling,” Chief Jim Elensky said. “She proceeded to put others in danger with her carelessness and has taken no responsibility for her actions. Perhaps jail time is what she needs to mull it over. It is fortunate that no one was seriously hurt.”
There is a warrant for Studimire’s arrest. Officers made contact with Studimire by phone, but have yet to locate her. Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to contact the Haines City Police Department at 863-421-3636.
Youth Football Coach Will Be Charged with Child Abuse
KISSIMMEE, FL – The GA Youth Football Coach who smacked a 9-year-old player TWICE will be hit with Child Abuse charges, prosecutors announced.
“The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office along with our local state attorney’s office have reviewed this case and the decision has been made that charges for child abuse will be filed, regardless of parent’s decision not to press charges,” Maj. Jacob Ruiz said.
For reasons of my own, I refuse to include this video here. No GOOD MAN would want to see this piece of Sewer Rat Dung assault this little boy. This is part of the #AntiChild mindset, and also a big part of the every day VIOLENCE liberal Law Makers are attempting to force us to endure by blaming the actions of individuals with no respect for our LAWS on Our Law Enforcement Officers. The Obama Administration, The Supreme Court, Our Law Makers, Penn State, the Jerry Sanduskys, and Dennis Hasterts of Our Country, are pushing their #AntiChild Agenda, #AntiFamily Agenda, and #AntiAmerican Agenda. I urge each and every one of you to join with us in SUPPORTING OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS. Robert StrongBow
“The actions of this person are despicable and there is zero-tolerance when it comes to the abuse of a child.”
As we first reported, law enforcement already launched a child abuse investigation into Gerrell Williams over the December 7 incident that took place at a youth football event in Kissimmee, Florida.
During the course of the investigation, officers spoke with the victim’s mother who said she did NOT want to move forward with criminal charges against Williams.
It can be tough for prosecutors to get a conviction without a cooperating victim — but in this case, officials feel the video and witnesses will be enough to prove his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
Williams was fired from his job as a counselor at the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office detention center as a result of his actions in the video.
He later issued a video apology — in which he admits to smacking the child and says, “I’m gonna apologize for my actions.”
The video was widely condemned by some of the country’s top athletes…
Families need to be aware that Hallmark Channel’s “Countdown to Christmas” movie specials will be very different this year since the network will be including LGBTQ content and characters in its original movies for the first time ever.
For example, The Christmas House, set to air Sunday, November 22, at 8:00 p.m. CST will include a gay couple. The cast features Johnathan Bennett and Brad Harder as gay dads-to-be through adoption.
Hallmark Channel, owned by Crown Media Family Networks, announced its plans to start introducing gay and transgender storylines into its movies after receiving online complaints about the lack of obvious LGBTQ content in its lineup of holiday movies.
Michelle Vicary, executive vice president of programming at Crown Media Family Networks, said in a recent secular interview that the 2020 holiday programming reflects “our most diverse representation of talent, narratives, and families.
“Our holiday table is bigger and more welcoming than ever,” she added in a press release. “Our movies are rooted in warmth and positivity, meaningful connections, family gatherings, and seasonal traditions — a winning formula we hope will bring our millions of viewers much-needed levity and holiday cheer at the end of a tough year.”
So many people feel betrayed by Hallmark, which used to be set apart from other channels because of the wholesome, family-friendly content it aired. However, in less than one year, the network decided not only to air LGBTQ commercials, which One Million Moms petitioned and began to boycott in December 2019, but also to produce and air movies pushing the gay agenda by featuring lead gay characters in homosexual relationships.
The once conservative network has caved to LGBTQ pressure and has done a one-eighty from the wholesome content the channel once aired, and the network is now catering to the Left.
1MM is boycotting all things Hallmark. This includes Hallmark Channel, Hallmark wrapping paper, greeting cards, Christmas ornaments, etc.
Please sign our unique petition stating you will specifically boycott ‘The Christmas House’ movie on November 22 by not watching Hallmark Channel that day and by not purchasing any Hallmark products as long as Hallmark pushes the LGBTQ agenda.Now, please share with your family and friends.
