Yes, I look like crap; yes, I’ve been crying. How can any one not? It takes a lot to make me cry, but thinking back on all the racism and cases of police killings and beatings, including children, got me. Video below, more to come later today.
“La’Darious was a fifth-grade student at Chester Park Center of Literacy through Technology and the son of Elizabeth McCrorey and Carlos Wylie Sr. According to Robinson, he was the third oldest of three brothers and five sisters. She described him as an incredibly charming young man who had a very close relationship with his family.
“La’Darious loved his family,” she said. “He was the apple of his momma’s eye. He was well-behaved, he got good grades and he played football. He liked the Baltimore Ravens. The school was supposed to take him to the Bank of America Stadium this week to meet the [Carolina] Panthers and, even though it wasn’t his team, he was so excited because he loved football.”
On October 27, 2015, standing among a few other kids, La’Darious Wylie, 11, and his sister, Sha’Vonta, 7, waited together for the school bus. And then out of no where, a car was heading right towards where the children were standing.
Like a true hero it only took La’Darious Wylie half a second to realize what he had to do as the car rushed towards them; he had to save his little sister. Pushing her out of the way, he saved her life. But he didn’t have time to move himself and was hit by the car. The next day, the 28th, he passed away. Though they claim it is still under investigation, they’ve identified the driver as Michelle Johnson, charging her with fatal hit and run. She is currently out on a $25,000 bond.
This is the GoFundMe page to help with funeral expenses and his family as they get through the next few months. Please check it out or share it; imagine if it were you…
The following are video accounts, with the second one being his sister and brother remembering him… This is sad news, but it also shows the goodness and kindness in the heart and soul of a brave young man whom loved his sister and family. His harrowing death is also the death of a brave young man; I think he deserves national attention and respect. Or at least a lot more notice than I’ve seen being shared about him. I’ve read he is getting attention nation wide; I hope that is true; I hope everyone hears about this young child…
Not everyone would have been able to make the choice the did; and for that his sister is very blessed, and so is this world. His act of brotherly love shows there is hope. La’Darious is hope to me in a tragic world; he is proof that family, real love, selflessness, loyalty and looking after others is not a wasted cause. He is the very definition of all those things; he is in my eyes a true hero.
May your next journey be beautifully blessed….

Community Activist wants to rename park after La’Darious, video.
And they succeeded, which you can find out more about here.
Below is a brief video I mad out of frustration regarding how police brutality, racism and accountability are different things for every person depending mainly on the color of your skin. I can’t wrap my head around that thought, but anyway…
In it I talk about cases I’ll be going into more depth over in upcoming videos, as noted, I took a break to get this off my chest; but it’s truth and I think that’s easy to see. *Before I go any further, no child should die, no person regardless of age or race should be murdered. My point here is why is there such a major difference in reaction to the murdering of a white child and the murdering of a Black child? In this video I talk about previous cases regarding children whose lives were stolen by police, but we need only look to present day to see the difference in treatment between Black victims and white victims. That is a simple and plain fact.
The media [for-profit media] will try to slander the character of any Black victim, trying to brainwash those watching mindlessly into believing that the police were actually in the right. Instead of blindly accepting their opinion and “statements” why not look into the issue yourself if you must judge? Or better yet; why is it we can’t see with great clarity that no one, especially a child, should be murdered by the police?
And when a child or a person of any age is killed or beaten, why are we not holding the cops to a higher standard; why are they allowed to walk…so long as the child is not white that is.
Jeremy Mardis death is tragic and my heart goes out to his family. But Tamir Rice and countless others (currently what the main video I’m working on, will post soon) don’t get the same treatment, attention, respect or closure and that’s not right; that’s not justice! All deaths by cops should at the very least be treated as Jeremy’s tragic and premature death. But the majority are not; regardless of age or circumstance… It all comes down to race; and that is a huge problem. A huge problem we all need to unite and fight to change…Together.
This, needs to change…. No matter the race, color, gender, etc- no one should be killed. But, dealing with the reality that too many innocent lives are being taken by cops in America we must face the facts. Racism is very evident, cops should NOT BE ALLOWED TO MURDER OR BEAT ANYONE WHOM IS NOT WHITE; THEY SHOULDN’T BE ALLOWED TO MURDER PERIOD! That’s my point.
The thumb nail photo brings tears to my eyes; I work with kids who confide things like this; my friends kids confide feelings like this… To see the site, please visit http://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2015/01/cleveland_students_racism_viol.html#3
Watching the below video is hard, but it is vital and necessary if you care about what is going on in this world. Tears came to my eyes, as this reminds me so much of Emmett Till. Racism is becoming overly blunt, it is in our face, as if they are mocking us. It is beyond time to do something about the police, and racism in America. This should never have happened to any person; but because it has, it shouldn’t still be occurring- it’s time to defend ourselves and children; I don’t support violence, but I do support SELF DEFENSE; screw turn the other cheek!
When this occurred it received so little attention in the media, even in local media, an online petition had to be made trying to get attention drawn to it. Many believe it was the son of an FBI agent thus giving it an even extra layer of silence. What if this was your child? Brother, nephew, … please share this with any and everyone you know;
What happened to 14-year-old Jason Smith? His death was ruled an “accidental drowning” by the coroner in Eros, Louisiana, but his body was found with his organs missing… Either that, or as Smith’s family believes, somebody removed them. Smith’s family is convinced that he was murdered in a racially-motivated hate crime. Moreover, they are pointing the finger at the son of an FBI agent, suggesting that the crime is being covered-up because of his involvement.
Smith had been dead for hours before his body was recovered from a lake back on June 6, 2011. It is unreasonable to imagine, however, that the time his body was in the lake would have resulted in the decomposition or selective removal of organs by predators, while the rest of his body was not destroyed.
Could the organs have been removed for some other reason? Could have have been removed to rid the investigation of any evidence contrary to the coroner’s claim that Smith had died as the result of an accidental drowning? That is: no lungs, no proof that he didn’t drown.
Jason’s father also claims that his son was sexually assaulted before being murdered. He alleges that Jason’s murderers was the son of an FBI agent and that is why this case is being covered up. Mr. Smith claims that police tried to kill him and another son when they were leaving the Louisiana town where the murder happened.
After this murder happened, the story received so little attention that a petition calling for a federal investigation into Smith’s death, only received a few hundred signatures.
Watch the video below and help change that by SPREADING THE WORD to anyone and everyone you know who believes there is something off about this story.
On May 16, 2010, Aiyana Stanley-Jones, 7 years old, was murdered in her sleep by Officer Joseph Weekley, who shot her in the head with his sub-machine gun. She was sleeping on the couch at her grandmothers house when Weekley and other officers raided the wrong apartment. This is a tragic but sadly perfect example of how cops shoot without caution, care or out of “fear for their lives”.
After an officer outside threw a flash grenade threw the window and Weekley could see, he pointed the sub-machine gun (why do police need sub-machine guns?) at the precious 7 year old girl sleeping, and shot her in the head; killing her.
His defense? He claimed her grandmother tried to knock the gun out of his hands thus resulting in him pulling the trigger. There is no evidence of that, however. No finger prints but his are on that gun. No blood is on anyone’s hands but his own. It’s beyond me how he can sleep at night knowing he aimed his gun and killed a sleeping child and then lied, blaming the grandmother for his actions. She had been traumatized enough without his cruel words being spoken. How could anyone with a heart even fathom to kill anyone much less an innocent child; and then place the blame on the grandmother, who witnessed the entire thing? That is a special kind of evil.
Aiyana’s grandmother says she never touched the officer but instead ran towards her granddaughter, which makes complete sense for a human being to do in this situation. We don’t even need the physical evidence to know that what happened is exactly what her grandma said happened as it’s basic human nature. But the physical evidence should have helped.
It took three years before the officer was taken to trial. Weekley has been tried twice for this horrific crime, both resulting in deadlock or a mistrial. Interestingly enough, the defense proposed a motion that the judge at the first trial denied. The judge in the second case for some reason decided to approve the same motion, which dismissed the felony charge of “involuntary” manslaughter. Because of Judge Cynthia Gray Hathaway’s decision to accept the motion by defense Aiyana’s case cannot be appealed under law. The defense attorney said the following in response:
“Today we personally informed the family of Aiyana Stanley-Jones that we have made a decision that we would not be going to trial for a third time in the Joseph Weekley case. It is unfortunate that Judge Cynthia Gray Hathaway granted a directed verdict dismissing the felony Manslaughter charge, leaving only the misdemeanor count of Careless Discharge Causing Injury or Death. Under the law her decision cannot be appealed. On Friday, January 30, 2015 at 9:00 a.m., we will move to dismiss the case.”
What a wonderful nation we have; what a wonderful legal system we have, that allows killers to get off and then ensure there are no more appeals or He swore to protect citizens, but that is the last thing he did. Police should be held to a higher standard than citizens when they murder someone; especially a sleeping child. Outrage should be seen across this nation; but nothing like that has happened nor will it.
Weekely is still on the streets as a cop. He has never been punished for this unspeakable crime. During the investigation he was placed on paid leave, which is nothing more than a paid vacation. That’s no punishment and he hasn’t had any form of discipline whatsoever for the murder of Aiyana Stanley-Jones.
How many more times do we have to go through this; how many times does police murder and beatings have to occur before the people, including you the reader get angry and we all unite against the true enemy?
If you are in the Newark, NJ or NYC area, please check this out- If not, please spread the word. Though NYC is my home, I lived in Newark for a few years and the killing is, I believe, even more horrific there. A teacher spoke in an article today about how many of his students had been murdered… No one cares… It’s time to start caring. Please share this!
” What was once considered a healthy, educational and entrepreneurial childhood activity in America has now seemingly become criminal behavior. Children across the country selling anything from cupcakes to lemonade are being shaken down for cash or threatened for not having the “proper papers.” ” (see below)
While we are on topics of the government and society abusing children, let me go ahead and repost this ASININE story. In sum, remember lemonade and other stands kids put up to raise money? That now is something the government has been, and still is, viewing as profitable; even to them.
Though in this article more than this story is listed, this is the most recent (to my knowledge).
So, in short, a 12 year old boy set up a raspberry stand (they were grown on his families farm, as a side note) to save up for a mini motorcycle. The young Tayson Weeks was recovering from a previous accident which ended with him in the hospital, due to a concussion. His plans for the summer was to learn how to make money via this raspberry stand, and save up for a pit bike. Wait a second! Money?
